Want to Work from Home? Here’s What You Need to Know

The thought of working from home is a dream for many. Just imagine — working at home in your pajamas, not having to deal with rush hour, or nosy coworkers, or office politics.

Not to mention all of the money you would save on business attire, drycleaning, vehicle maintenance & gas, expensive lunch outings, and those pesky afternoon lattes.

Nowadays, many companies are coming on board with the reality of remote workers. After all, there’s a lot that’s in it for them as well. Namely, employee health and satisfaction, decreased real estate needs, workers putting in longer hours, and overall flexibility in business coverage.

It’s a win-win for all involved.

So once you land your dream job of working from home, how do you make the very best of that opportunity? What’s your strategy for remaining engaged and motivated, to justify working your 9-to-5 from the comfort of your own home? And how do you make sure you’re being just as productive as you would be if you were physically in office?

These are all important questions that have been tackled by my friend Chris, who has been a remote employee for many years. Chris writes about personal finance, debt, money mindset, and life on his blog, Money Stir.

And as a remote worker myself, I can testify to the importance of all he has listed below. Because you can most definitely become a top performer, even when working from home. But you need to shift your approach a bit, to ensure you’re maintaining visibility as well as exceeding expectations for your customers, peers, and managers.

And with that said, I turn the stage over to Chris!

When You Think of Success What Comes to Mind?

You probably think of a great business leader like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, or Elon Musk. Right?
