  1. The virtual office is replacing the office cubical. The good thing from this pandemic is people find they can be more productive from their home office. And it’s tax deductible if you don’t mind the occasional audit.

    1. The best thing from the pandemic has been the traffic or lack of it. Hopefully working from home will become the new normal. My concern is what’s going to happen when the subway and busses go to full capacity?
