Hi all! Caz here… I am happy to announce the grand opening of a completely remote opportunity for content writers and marketing specialists at CreativesScale.com. Inspired by the gig-economy style made famous by Uber, we’ve taken the expertise of several business owners and executives from top SEO providers and independent marketing agencies throughout the world to create this very special, one of a kind system. This Martech project is one I am very proud of. We put a lot of SaaS into it if you know what I mean!
Without further ado, I want to share a few facts and talk about why this project is so important to me.
“Within the tech industry, remote work is increasingly becoming the new normal. We found ourselves wondering about how the remote work landscape has changed in the last few years. So, in partnership with Buffer, we surveyed over 3,500 remote workers and compiled one of the largest reports on remote work to date.”
Some findings from the “2020 State of Remote Work”:
- 97% would recommend remote work to others. 👍🏻
- 80% primarily work from home.🏡
- 32% say having a flexible schedule is the biggest benefit. ✅
- 20% cite loneliness & communication as their biggest struggle. 😣”
I am a self-proclaimed digital nomad. As a proud, female executive and millennial, I have a lot to say, and a lot I don’t get the opportunity to say (as you can imagine) due to worldwide stereotypes. I don’t want that to be you. I want everyone to be loud and proud about their choices and their dreams.
What I want to talk about is the reason for remote revolution (and apparently how into alliteration I am).
Reasons for Remote Revolution
I am an introvert. I do better focusing on small groups or as an individual. I prefer to work from home and with as little distraction as possible.
I am a digital nomad. I love to stay motivated and focused by staying on the move. Wherever I go, my laptop follows. I enjoy the challenge of working from new locations and supporting my adventurous lifestyle with work that is available to me online.
I have a disability. Not all disabilities are obvious and very few of them get the care or respect they deserve in a busy office environment. I have days where I can do it all. I also have days where I feel as though I can’t do anything. While I am capable of running the rat race, I’ve learned that taking care of myself matters most. I prefer to work in a flexible environment where the pressure to “be…” comes only from within. I know I bring a great deal of worth and talent to the table. I just don’t want to sit at the tables of companies that do not value work-life balance, mental health, or varying capabilities. I choose to work from home to benefit my own health and preferred lifestyle.
It’s been too long since I’ve worked in an office. In this day and age, I’ve managed a variety of teams – big and small, across dozens of countries. In the last ten years, I’ve primarily worked from home as part of a remote team. While I can go into the office, it is no longer ideal for me. The schedule would take a lot of getting used to. I enjoy the healthy lifestyle and at-home routines I have created over the last decade.
Covid-19 made it practically impossible to find or keep employment so far in 2020. Opportunities are slim and the demand is high. I want to take this time as an opportunity to put new talents to work and see what I am truly capable of.
While all of this is true for me, it is also true for so many of you!!! The story doesn’t end there! Like so many more, I will soon become a stay at home parent with a demanding, unpredictable schedule. Soon I will need to be home at a given time to walk my dog. I will be recovering from surgery and unsure how much I can or cannot do. These scenarios are also true for me! These scenarios are already true for so many of you.
