Oh my aching back I scream. Here I sit WAY too long hunched over my computer that is lower than eye level. Neck bent, squinting while my vision continues to blurr. I should get up but I'm just too hooked on sitting here and pecking. I'm due for an intervention. How about you? This week we learn about Ergo Work Site and the founder Maureen Allen. Not only does she share an entrepreneurial journey, but there are things we should all consider if we are an employer of many or simply on our own. Home or business . . . are you ergonomically correct?
