Amie Reed, Co-Founder & CMO, Digital Mountaineers

 

What’s your key to getting started in the morning? Coffee and walking my dog, Fernweh. Her energy is contagious & the fresh air is as necessary as the caffeine.

 

What is your favorite thing on your desk? A wrought-iron gyro globe, as it reminds me of how much work goes into making something incredible.

 

What’s the best thing about working remotely? The freedom to feed my mood. If I am feeling creative, I can sketch on my rooftop. If I am feeling super productive, I plant myself at central command (my desk) and embrace the flow.

 

What’s the toughest part of running your own business? Setting boundaries for balance. I pour myself into work and sometimes I forget to take breaks. Luckily, the puppy reminds me it is time to play.

 

What’s the most important part of company culture? Intersectional inclusion. Every individual at Digital Mountaineers- from Executives to contractors- brings something incredible to the table. We not only embrace diversity of every kind, we cultivate it.

 

Do you ever ditch the desk? Absolutely. A lot of the groundwork for Digital Mountaineers happened at that desk, however to keep the creative juices flowing, I need to be moving and changing my scenery. 

 

Any hidden talents? I’m a Professional Organizer, which is a lot of work, yet oddly cathartic. 

 

How do you relax? Cleaning vigorously & gardening. Followed by scented candles, cozy blankets, and a refreshing cocktail.

 

Number of countries visited: Ten. I have lived in England, Italy, and Ecuador=

 

Where to next? Morocco & Spain!
