Remote Year is comprised of ~70 “Remotes” and 2 Staff. Travis King is our Community Manager, and Samantha Thomas is our Operations Manager. They are both incredibly sweet people, and GREAT leaders.
Travis wrote a song for us and sang it during orientation: a spin on the R.E.M. song, “It’s the End of the World as we know it”. I didn’t get the whole clip but here is the final chorus. He incorporated all of the Remotes’ names into the fast paced lyrics and absolutely blew us away! This is the type of amazing thing that exceptional leaders do. They invent creative ways to inspire and engage their communities.
This song gives me the goosebumps. And I’ve only been here 6 days.
Imagine what I’ll be feeling in 350 days from now...
