5 Ways to Find Freedom in Telecommuting


Frustrated by your job? Break the chains of onsite employment and find a renewed sense of purpose in these personal and professional freedoms achieved through telecommuting. 

Freedom from a set schedule. With most telecommute positions, the freedom to set your own schedule means no more of that 9 to 5 feeling five days a week. As a telecommuter, you’ll have more opportunities to schedule your work day around family activities, school functions, doctor’s appointments, and other potential time conflicts.

Freedom from overwork. Telecommuting allows you to choose how much or how little you work. You can pay off extra bills by taking on a remote contract job or temporary telecommuting assignment, or work a regular, full-time telecommute job from the comfort and privacy of your own home.

Freedom from the pump. Telecommuters spend less money on gas than commuters who drive long distances to and from work every day. A typical commute when you work at home is heading from the breakfast table to the home office; and that doesn’t use any gas.

Freedom from mom (and dad) guilt. Moms and dads shouldn’t have to choose between work and family; telecommuting makes that choice obsolete. Work-at-home moms and dads can most often work early mornings, evenings, and after their children are tucked into bed, so as to maximize quality time with their families and see to the immediate needs of their children.

Freedom from the daily grind. Telecommuters are more productive at their job because they attend fewer meetings and experience less distractions than traditional onsite office workers. Remote employees and contractors can dive into their work without as much as half of their day being taken up by water cooler conversations and red tape.
