This past month, I celebrated my first year working remotely. It is seen as ‘unconventional,’ I know. However, if you look at the trend, more and more companies are offering remote work, or at the very least, remote days. Working remotely cuts the costs of running a company, saves wasted energy, and it is also seen that remote workers tend to be at least 20% more productive than sitting in an office for eight hours a day with a boss hovering around you. The new jobs created in the last seven years, and the use of the Cloud, make it a viable option.
