What Do I Really Need to Work Remotely?
Short answer? A job (duh). But mindset is also important. You may love the idea of working from home or being location independent, but would it really suit you? That’s a question only you can answer. Self-discipline is a huge piece of the puzzle. No telecommuter can be successful without it.
Working remotely is a skill in and of itself. Self-discipline is one aspect and time management is another. Additionally, you need to be able to cope with loneliness. For many people, going into the office is also the social highlight of their day. When you take away your colleagues, it is basically just you sitting there with a computer and getting work done. You may only have your cat to talk to.
Are you okay with that? If so, then you’re already on the right path towards working from home.
How Do I Find a Remote Job?
By using the tools I’ve just given you!
I’m not gunna lie: it’s tough. Finding a remote job, as indeed with any role, takes time. COVID-19 has been a curse, but also a blessing. Since nearly every company has experimented with remote work, more employers may be open to remote work than ever before. This means it’s time for you to make hay out of this chaos. Apply for the jobs you want, and try to negotiate a remote deal (my ebook will tell you how!).
