The easiest way to get Into Remote Work


Everyone loves life hacks. They love finding better ways to do things that directly impact their lives for the better. Who wouldn't? I remember feeling the daily dread of getting ready for work to look professional, leaving my apartment building, forgetting to get my coffee from the counter, driving 30 minutes to 1 hour to get to the parking spot on time, and then sorting out all of my personal messes after work ends. All the while, in the back of my mind, I am thinking "what if I could just work from home? Then all of this time-wasting would end?" Fast forward 3 years later, I would start to make this dream alive, and it is continuing to grow more alive. 

But that's not how this dream first came to be. Ever since I was a kid, I was a dreamer. I was a futuristic thinker that constantly looked for and noticed trends before they came to fruition. And I knew the trend was going to be working from home because who wants to deal with the hassle of driving to work just to get a paycheck? Why can't you just become comfortable, become extremely productive at work, and have the potential to grow as a person? Better yet, all from the comforts of your own bedroom! I knew I wanted to be a businessman, and always had a dream of becoming a digital nomad before becoming a digital nomad was a thing. Maybe that was the Millennial in my thinking because that trend started happening during my time. However, I never acted on my dreams, and life just passed me by due to fear. I didn't know how to make this dream come true, and if I knew what I know now, I would definitely make a lot of changes. However, this is why I created this blog, so that I can help people change their lives and their familys' lives.

How do you get into Remote Work? Never give up! There are thousands of listings for remote work, and a lot of the job qualifications on those listings require credentials that many of us are not qualified for. Knowing what I know now, there are two things you can do. 

  1. The first thing is, to apply for all of the remote job listings that you can. Volume is king because you never know if the hiring manager will take a shot with you. The job application is your foot in the door, and speed is a bit greater than quality at this point in time because speed of application puts more eyeballs on you as an asset. After that, you bring the quality. 

  2. The second thing is, to put an emphasis on sending job applications to roles that are entry-level or mid-level based on your experiences. Jobs that usually pay more will require more out of you, and as a result, they are more tentative in hiring just anybody off the street. However, job roles that have more transition will have greater flexibility and will allow you greater opportunity to move up the virtual ladder. You leverage these experiences to either move up internally or gain skills to get paid higher elsewhere. 
To conclude, because I have to get to my shift as a supervisor at my work-from-home job, digital work for a company is not the end-all-be-all here. The goal is to be financially free and work from the comforts of your own home. Your goal may be to create a career directly from home, and that may be for a company. That's amazing! However, if you are anything like me, you want to eventually scale up and work for yourself...And you got it, to work from home for yourself. Working remotely is one of the best things I have done, but the journey doesn't end here. Keep finding ways to scale yourself and just know that the journey never ends. As technology evolves, so does remote work. Evolve your skills and reverse engineer your job listings (should you decide to be a company person), or your goals to become the digital nomad or remote worker that you have always dreamed of being.
