Hooray for freedom and confidence! Welcome the first Friday in February, also known as Working Naked Day! What a day to celebrate our ability to work from home, free from dress codes, or even clothing altogether. The day was created by Lisa Kanarek, a home office expert, in 2010 to celebrate the independence and creativity often found when working from home. So put aside your suits and ties, your heels and makeup, and embrace the joy of working in your most natural state! Join us this Working Naked Day in breaking barriers from the comfort of your own home. Let's celebrate the freedom and confidence that comes from embracing ourselves, just as we are!
