National Work and Family Month 2019

National Work and Family Month is celebrated annually in October, and with a 100% remote team here at Virtual Vocations, we definitely understand how remote work as a family lifestyle impacts our day to day lives and is closely intertwined with our careers and relationships.

We are excited about embracing remote work and supporting families in doing the same during National Work and Family Month this October, and offering resources and tips to help others do the same. This week, we will be celebrating the flexibility remote work brings to careers and family life, and we hope you’ll join us!

Laura Spawn, CEO Virtual Vocations“Improving my family’s lifestyle with remote work was the main reason I started Virtual Vocations 13 years ago. With three small children and my husband still in school, we had to merge all aspects of our lives, including parenting and work, into as flexible a schedule as possible. Our National Work and Family Month celebration each October allows us to acknowledge that family and work go together.

Today, my children are older, my husband is finished with school, and many of our needs have changed, but one thing I’ve found is that working remotely has remained a true benefit over the years that has allowed us to blend all areas of lives together, rather than trying to prioritize one area over another.” – Laura Spawn, CEO of Virtual Vocations, Inc.
