Location independence is a huge benefit to working remotely. You are free to go where you choose because you don’t have an office to report to. Have you talked to your current employer about going remote? When I first brought up the idea of going remote to my manager, I was nervous! What will they say?! One thing I prepped before hand was the contributions I’ve made to the company to sell myself and the idea of remote work. In the end, it went extremely well. We made a transition plan and shortly thereafter I moved from San Francisco to Raleigh and soon to be Savannah GA. The freedom to choose where we go makes it all worth it.
Don’t be afraid to ask, the worst case scenario is they say no. At least you attempted and then you could look for another role that actually supports remote work. ↟↟↟ ↟↟↟ ↟↟↟ ↟↟↟
Remembering That Time When We Were at the Scottish Highlands, Scotland 🏴
. . “Hullo!!! How ye daein?”
We saw this beauty on the side of the narrow country lane whilst driving past, and I couldn’t resist its cuteness. It was in Scotland that we first encountered this breed, the Highland Cattle, which we have initially called those “Hairy Cows”.
According to Wikipedia, they are a hardy breed, having been bred to withstand the tough weather conditions in the Scottish Highlands. Their long hair gives the breed its ability to overwinter. Cute as they may be, it is said that the bulls can weigh up to 800 kilograms and cows, up to 500 kilograms 😱😱!!
If you pinch and drag this image, you will see that this particular one was looking straight at me!!
walking through a remote farming community in the highlands of madagascar, my guide spoke to this man in malagasy and pointed at me. little did i know that he told this man that i was looking for a husband 🤣 (he has a wife - sorry, ladies!). his reaction to the question is priceless 💜
