Remote Work Experience
I've worked on and off for a startup tech company Blockonomics since 2017. It is an entirely remote team, and I started as a college intern, so it was quite a change from what I expected. I've really enjoyed it, because it allows me to travel when still on the clock.
I think these are 3 important parts to being successful as a remote worker
1. The attitude--You have to have a certain attitude to being successful. You have to have an independent streak, because much of your work will be independent. You also need to accept that your work isn't everything, know you're life takes precedence. Otherwise, you'll be drawn into the terrible pit of working all the time. 2. Time management--You have to know how to organize your time, otherwise you'll be working well into the late hours of the night. Its good to take breaks (lots of them), but make sure you account for how long your work will take. 3. Tech Savvy(ish)--You have to know enough about computers and software to get by. Since there's no IT team to come up to your desk, if something goes wrong, you have to know how to google what the issue is and follow instructions.
Here's how I plan to contribute to The Remote Clan
I have a lot of experience working remotely, and I strongly support anyone moving to remote work. I want to contribute what I've learned while working remotely, and also help show those looking to take the jump on how to do it. I also want to share my tools I've used to make it easy.
Here's what I want to gain from The Remote Clan
I want to learn some new tools to make my remote work easier. There's always new things to learn about, and new strategies to gain to make the work life better.
These are the 2 best topics to start off a conversation with me
For me? Airlines or Politics. I'll readily talk about both for hours.
