1 How to Successfully Work from Home Forever

For many out there, the work-from-home trend has been absolutely fantastic. There is a lot of hype about going back to the office, getting back to normal, or even hybrid work. But the truth of the matter is that for many, working from home and being able to be in pajamas for as long as they want and see their kids/loved ones all day long is the ideal lifestyle. This article will provide you with some tips to be able to work from home and to do this sustainably for as long as you want to.

See what the current job can offer in the way of remote work

The age-old saying of ‘a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush’ is indeed still worth reiterating. If your current job has asked you to make a return to the office and it’s just not what you want or expected it to be, and you want to leave, don’t just yet. There are many more people who are in the exact same position. The following should help you as it has them, to avoid the financial uncertainty of a rash decision.

Before you make any drastic moves and decide that home working is for you and the office won’t do, ask your current employer whether they would consider this type of working arrangement for you. Then motivate as to why it would work for the business and yourself. If it’s just because of the pajamas as aforementioned, then it may not sell. But if you’re serious and there’s a genuine reason, then motivate professionally, explaining why being at home is better for your work-life balance, and this balance provides you with the ability to commit better to the work at hand, allowing the company to benefit. Oh, and the technology has already been bought, tested, and used!

Decide on a freelance sector or role that you can execute from home

If your current job won’t buy it or if it’s on the cards to be moving on, then you need to start looking at the freelance opportunities that your current skills will allow you to engage in. For some, it may be as simple as editing high school essays, or perhaps blogging is your thing. But if it’s a more ‘serious’ career, the current top trends are healthcare and tech. For both of these, you may have to do some training, and at the nexus of both, you could do Azure courses that would allow you access to a growing industry. The tech sector, whether it is automated customer service maintenance, Cloud administration, and design, cyber security and software aspect, or upgrades, can all now be done from the comfort of your home office with the right training.

You will also need the right tech

Connectivity will be key; there’s no way that you will be able to sustain a professional career from home without ongoing and continuous data and a strong internet signal. Then you need the actual hardware and software to be able to execute the work that you have managed to secure.

If you’re able to do the aforementioned, you will be well on your way to establishing a career that can be run and maintained in the Cloud from the comfort of your home. Or from anywhere, for that matter, as long as the tech is mobile and the work is available, you can make working from home your new normal.
