#TheEchoAtHome

'I’m regressing - with kids homeschooling I now get to have recess and little lunch. 
Now I am trying to keep up with my kids exercise regimens.'
Aletha Zylstra Proofreader
#TheEchoAtHome

'I miss the proofreading desk at the office (commissioned by Gordon Balfour-Hayes).
But I love being able to look out my window at the treetops... 
And plan further bush-regen efforts.'
Shantih Duvel Graphic Designer

'Working from home has been a wild ride. 
Learning how to do what I've been doing for years in a totally different way, it's been a massive learning experience. 
I'm very proud of everyone I work with and their ability to adapt to the situation and communicate with each other through this transitional time.'
Cristina Sharratt Graphic Artist, Fine Artist, Jewellery Maker
#TheEchoAtHome

Cristina is reporting from the best place to find wifi in Brunswick Heads.
'Working from home? I'm still ironing out the WIFI kinks – I am on the phone to Telstra daily. Love the Echo and believe that researched media is so important in these random days.'
David Lowe Writer, Filmmaker, Photographer
#TheEchoAtHome

'I'm trying to stay healthy while working on the Byron Health, Healing and Venue blogs in between cutting films!
It's great to be seeing more animals and less humans while working from home. 
Too many screens are barely enough. 
New glasses arrived just in time!'

'Working from home is my normal with my freelance graphic design business. I am used to having online meetings and sending things back and forth, even just did a Coronavirus leaflet to inform Gypsies, boaties and travellers in the Uk. What’s not normal is doing The Echo from home but it’s kind of cute having online meetings and seeing everyone on video. Plus I get to work in my onesie and nobody can even tell.

'I've acquired a whole lot of new office colleagues in my children and partner as The Echo and Echonetdaily has moved to home based production. We will be bringing you all the latest news on Echonetdaily and in The Echo about what is going on as we all try and maintain our sanity in these self-isolating times.'
Mandy Nolan – Journalist, Comedian & Entertainment Editor
#TheEchoAtHome

‘Working from home isn’t  an issue for me because I always work from home. Often I’m getting up at 5 am in hotel rooms around the country to log on and write about entertainment in the Byron Shire. Thats when I had a career as an entertainer..now I’m an out of work entertainer writing about ….entertainment that doesn’t really exist in the way it did before. We’re having to innovate and keep sane! The Echo has always been a vital community voice, and I think its never been more important to keep our community together.'
From one small business to others 
- so many of you are coming up with new ways to operate or do business at the moment. 
Supporting your staff with continued employment and safely supplying our community with much-needed things. 
It’s not business as usual... 
As there is so much change at the moment we want our readers to be able to easily find out what is still operating (and how) locally
- so we have a special page in next week’s #ByronShireEcho and going forward with local businesses letting the community know what they are doing.

If you’d like to be part of this get in touch today.

We did reach out to a lot of people via email yesterday and this morning but if you haven’t received it, DM us ere or at h@echopublications Instagram or message us below.

Thanks to everyone who is jumping on board already.

#TheEchoAtHome 

‘I am actually loving being at home. 
I’m an introvert by nature so the less time I can spend out in the world amongst other humans, the better as far as I’m concerned.
Living over near The Channon has meant that it’s a long way for me to come into the office to work, so this way it means I get to sleep in. 
You’ve got to look for the silver lining.

Remember - This Too Shall Pass.

Be kind to each other, earthlings’
