Remote Work Experience
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 think these are 3 important parts to being successful as a remote worker
1- Organized: You need the right tools and process to track and organize your work and thoughts, and bring everyone on the same page. You also need your own separate working place away from the house noise. 2- Motivated: It's easy to feel burned out and lose motivation when you work in isolation. So it's important to find ways to keep you motivated. Could be by exchanging ideas and talks with friends and peers in same industry, or situation. 3- Separation: It's easy for remote work from home to seep into your personal time. Let me just send this one last email. Let me look once more at the stats. If I could just finish this one last bug. This destroys your mental health, and will affect everyone around you. You need to separate the two and give each its deserved time.
Here's how I plan to contribute to The Remote Clan
Share my insight and experiences working from home, and hiring remotely. The mistakes I make, and how to better handle them. I constantly try new tools and service to get the job done. And I share which ones of them help me and how.
Here's what I want to gain from The Remote Clan
Learn about all that is new in remote world. Remote tools, remote insight, remote events, and exciting remote opportunities. I also want to stay motivated by exchanging thoughts and feedback with other remote workers, as it can feel lonely.
