Rolling remote with Felix Tih

Felix is a life coach and the author of Personal Branding: Master Your Digital Presence, so it makes sense that he and his brother own Felix Digital Lab, a company that teaches online entrepreneurship and personal branding.

Felix clocks in from his dining room table in Ankara, Turkey, where he makes sure to take short meditation and snack breaks during the work day to remain focused and productive.
