I started working on my side hustle back in late 2006. 2007 I tried my first remote hiring for freelance design job. From there, I kept on hiring remote talents for all kinds of work. Programming, writing, marketing, design, and anything else. I quit my day job, and have been working from home on my own projects since 2009, over 10 years now.
I have worked in varying degrees of remote for the last 8+ years. I started in a small office outside of the company's main hub. After a few years and the rest of the people leaving my office, I was the only person left in the state. I moved into a coworking space and have spent the last 5 years working with a community of entrepreneurs and other remote workers.
