It was early in 2015, that I decided that I was big enough, and ugly enough to “go it alone”. Stepping out from the comforts of employment was huge. However I am grateful that I done it, as stepping out from the constraint’s and hindrance of employment, liberated me.
For many working from home, can sound horrific, being stuck in a room, for hours on end without any interaction from colleagues. I find working virtually from my own home office empowering, diverse and challenging. I certainly don’t feel as though I am boxed in. I see more people now, than I ever did before. I engage and interact with a diverse range of people, including collaborative virtual assistants, clients, networking peers and such like.
The humdrum of being constrained to working a 9-5 job will surely have to evolve? The road infrastructure, for one is screaming to me that it cannot take the rat race anymore.
Antiquated companies will surely need to diversify. Empowering employees to decide for themselves! By doing so, they will gain a committed, talented, skilled professional, that will offer a concentrated commitment to them (much like a freelance professional).
The benefits of working from home, far outweigh the choice of working for a company. I have chosen to make it work, and to make a committed effort. It’s not about getting rich quick; it’s about having a balance of exciting, diverse work tasks coupled with enriched family and leisure time. For me, you can’t put a price on that.
I believe that as the world, (in theory) gets smaller due to the advancement of technology it will be increasingly easy to work from home, or indeed anywhere, for anyone, doing anything. How exciting is that! The world really is your oyster!
