I spent a bunch of money on gear to make myself look nicer on a webcam.
I’m not sure if it was worth it (you be the judge – IMO NO!), however, I do think it’s worth investing at least a little bit into your virtual meeting setup for the sake of your personal brand.
This is especially true if you’re interviewing for jobs, trying to get that next promotion, you’re a higher level employee, or you just want to look professional among your peers.
A small investment could go a long way, specially if remote work is indeed the future of work.

Thanks for checking out the video!
P.S. yes I’m back after a holiday break with family + video games + snowboarding!
I agree that many investments may be worth it for the potential improvement to your quality of life, but I had chosen to introduce a new reader to your blog today. It took several other articles of your typically excellent content to persuade him of the high quality of your work. Have an awesome day, and I appreciate your continued presence in the Salesforce blogosphere.
XD hope your friend subscribed ha ha ha
