If you haven’t had the pleasure of working remotely, then you really don’t know what you’re missing out on. Working remotely (or working from home) has many advantages and is on the rise with the digital era we are now in. With easily portable laptops like the Chromebook, it makes it easy to work practically anywhere.
Here are our top 5 reasons why we love working remotely.
- No more commute. Think about how much time you’ll save by cutting out the commute back and forth to an office. You can then use those saved minutes or hours to focus on home life or getting some more work accomplished! You’ll also save money on gas and wear and tear on your car. Not to mention the bliss of knowing you don’t have to face that 5 o’clock traffic ever again! You’ll even help the environment by reducing your carbon footprint.
- Location independent. Since you can work anywhere that has wifi, you aren’t tied down to a permanent office. Do you want to work while traveling in your RV? You can! What about working in your pajamas on your couch? You can! Or what about working while sun-bathing by the pool!? Work won’t seem like work when you can be somewhere you enjoy. Another great reason to be location independent, is you aren’t relying on local jobs only. This opens up the job pool to literally the entire world!
- Flexible Hours. Gone are the days worrying about asking your boss if you can leave to pick up your sick child from school. By working remotely, you can come and go as you please as long as that’s been communicated with your clients. Do you need to go to a doctor’s appointment at 10 am? No problem when working remotely. Are you more of a night owl? No problem! Adjust your hours so you can work later in the day.
- Increased Productivity. Without all the interruptions that a normal office environment brings, you’ll be far more productive by working remotely. This allows you to get more done in less time! Something we all strive for.
- You don’t have to socialize. If you’re an introvert, then you will appreciate this reason! Introverts unite! Working remotely allows you to work without having to worry about all the socializing that normally comes with a job.
If you’ve ever thought about working remotely, we hope this list helped to convince you. It simply is amazing to be able to work remotely, wherever we want, whenever we want, and with whomever we want. Thanks to digital products, like the Chromebook, it’s very easy to achieve.
