Remote Work: What it Means To Work Remotely (And How It Makes You Happier)

Remote work. It’s a term that gets thrown around a lot lately. And, it’s something you might be interested in. You may have even heard that it can lead to greater happiness. Spoiler alert: It’s true!  But before we get into the happiness factor of telecommuting, let’s look at what remote work really is.  What is Remote Work?  Generally speaking, remote work is any work you can do — remotely! That is, you can work from a place that’s located away from everyone else. Some companies are fully distributed — all of their employees work from a remote location. Other companies are remote-friendly — some of their employees work in office and others work remotely.  Does Remote Work Mean I Get To Work From Home?  You bet! Some companies, like Buffer, InVision, and Automattic, even let you work from anywhere. So, you can choose to set up shop in Starbucks or Sri Lanka — wherever it is you feel most productive and comfortable. But most remote workers tend to work from their home offices.  How Is Remote Work Different Than A Traditional In-Office Job?  The main difference is you don’t have a daily commute! Instead, you have a 10-second walk down your hallway. No need to hop in the car to get to the office every morning.   With remote work, you also get to create your own workspace instead of holing up in a cubicle for 8+ hours a day.  Plus, you won’t have daily in-person interactions with coworkers. Email, phone, and instant message will be your go-to for communicating and collaborating with colleagues.  Other than that, there’s not a lot that changes. You still have daily work responsibilities. There will be plenty of emails and projects to work on. At the end of the day, you still have deadlines and assignments you need to complete. You’ll probably even have a boss to answer to.  Remember, a remote job is just like an in-office job. The only difference is you’re working remotely instead of in the office.

How to Spot Work-From-Home Scams

One day, I received a message from someone on LinkedIn. A company I’d never heard of offered me a work-from-home position. The pay was phenomenal. All I needed to do was turn in my first assignment quickly, I’d get my first paycheck and then we could settle in for a more regular agreement. Now, I’ve been offered legit opportunities through LinkedIn before and even done work (and been paid!) as a result of connections through the site. Unfortunately, this was not one of those situations. I re-arranged my schedule, turned down other work and found myself out $800 when the company, which called itself “Write Stuff,” disappeared after I submitted my writing assignment. Did my spidey-sense go off during any part of this interaction? Sure it did. But it’s easy to get swept up in the idea of making a lot of money quickly, and I ignored some red flags. Don’t end up like me. Here’s how to spot work-from-home scams. 1. Amazing Income Claims One of the biggest red flags is the idea that you can solve all your money problems with this one work-from-home system, said John Rampton, founder of the freelance invoicing and payment-processing app Due. “In the back of our minds, we know there’s no such thing as easy money,” he said. “But our common sense tends to flee when offered the potential for big gains.” If someone offers you a large sum of money for relatively little work, or if they have a “system” that promises to replace your day-job paycheck within a few weeks, run the other way. 25 Highest Paying Companies in America for 2017 2. You Have to Pay Something Up Front Some work-from-home scams prey on the unsuspecting by asking that you foot the bill for “upfront costs.” According to Rampton, some of these costs seem reasonable. “Maybe they tell you to pay for a background check, or insist that you send money for a special piece of equipment you need for your job,” he said. But most legitimate businesses won’t ask you to cover the expense for these things. They pay for…
