Who is Behind this Site?
My name is Brett Helling, and I have a passion for remote work. This type of work allows me to focus, manage a team spread across the globe, and spend my free time scuba diving and traveling the world, while working in the process..
My own experience with Remote Work started after I sold my first company. I soon found myself consulting and freelancing.
Now I have been working remotely since 2015. I have worked in client offices, worked at home, and in co-working spaces. I prefer co-working spaces, but have a private office that is perfect for hosting meetings and on-site collaboration.
As a team we have been working remotely since Day 1 – we are 100% virtual. We have contributors all over the world, and our core team is 100% remote.
My Experience in Remote Work
Our Founder Brett Helling has always worked remotely. This allows him to focus, manage a team spread across the globe, and spend his free time scuba diving. Brett also prefers co-working, but has a private office that is perfect for hosting meetings and on-site collaboration.
We created this Course to share our experience with Remote Work. We want to help people navigate being a Remote Work. For example, if you start working remotely your parents will have questions.
They might think that you have lost your job, or have started freelancing. Remind them that remote work is about location independence — not being a freelancer. While all freelancers are remote workers, not all remote workers are freelancers.
Keep going, in future lessons we will explain how to tell your boss you want to become a remote worker, let your family/roommates know when you are working, and how to answer pesky questions about your new work arrangement.
