Does any of this sound like you?
- You spend an hour or more commuting every day to a job you’re not in love with.
- Office politics make you feel like you’re in a grown-up version of Mean Girls.
- You constantly have to deal with coworkers interrupting you just as you get into the zone.
- Or maybe you wish you could earn more money without having to relocate to an area with a higher cost of living and a lower quality of life. (Which kind of defeats the whole “earn more money” thing, right?)
I’ve been there with ALL of those situations. But I came up with a solution. I stopped looking for jobs where I had to drag myself to an office every day and started working remotely for companies all over the world.
And you can do the same thing!
I was the first person I knew to start working remotely. I didn’t have a bunch of friends pushing me toward it. I didn’t know anyone who was actually doing it in real life. In fact, ten years ago, when I got started, not that many people were even working remotely anywhere.
Ask me how much I love working remotely
Throughout the last decade, I’ve worked remotely for companies all over the world as a regular contributing writer, editor, copyeditor, and content marketer. It’s great to work from my little corner of northern Vermont while earning wages that are more in line with what I’d earn working in a major city.
That means I can work part time and still earn more than enough to live comfortably in my local area! And depending on the structure of the specific remote job, I’ve also had a ton of flexibility over when I work. That means if I want to take a day off and go to the lake because it’s beautiful out, I can do that.Without needing to take a personal day or vacation day or any other time off.
How great is that?
I want to teach you everything I know
I had to figure out this whole remote work thing on my own. When I started ten years ago, there were only a handful of blogs even talking about working remotely. I had to do a ton of research before I even really started to think it was possible.
I want to save you all that time and energy. So I put together this Rural Remote course to share with you all the knowledge I’ve gained over the last ten years. By the time you finish, you’ll know what kind of remote job you want, what skills you need (and have an idea of where to learn any you don’t already know), and how to actually go about finding a legitimate job you can do from home.
What’s included in the course?
You’ll get seven video lessons about skills you need to get a remote job (and where to learn them), the kinds of remote jobs out there, and how to put together a resume and cover letter that sets you apart from other people applying for the same jobs.
PLUS, you’ll get a bonus remote career planner that will help you figure out what remote job you want, the skills you already have and those you still need to learn, and a timeline for actually landing the job!
