Remote Work: Intro & Tips

Some Pros and Cons

First, what do you have to keep in mind when considering going remote. There are way more topics on each subject, and each person may consider different things as pros and cons.


One of the main advantages for working remotely is the lack of commuting. Spending a couple of hours daily on traffic can be a pain in the ass for most people.

The lack of geographical barriers also enables companies to hire good employees wherever they want.

The other way around is also totally true. Even if you don't live in a tech hub, you'll still be able to find a good job somewhere else without moving.


It demands more organization from both the company and the employees. People will have to take care of themselves and be trusted with this kind of responsibility.

Loneliness may also be a problem for some people and must be addressed by managers with some practices I'll describe in this post 😉

Productivity can also be another problem. Some people can underperform due to the lack of “supervision” while others can work way too much which can lead to burnout in the future.

“Remote work isn't for me”

Well, maybe it isn't and there's nothing wrong with it 🙂

But keep in mind that a lot of people already does remote work but does not realize it. Outsourcing workers mostly do their jobs as remote workers for other companies. One of my previous jobs was as a outsource developer. Even though I was located in Brazil, my client's team was located both in other cities from Brazil as even in the USA (in a different time zone). To them, I was a remote worker.

But again: it's totally OK to not be interested in doing remote work.

Born in Spartanburg, SC, moved to GA for a while as a little kid. Once around 8, my family moved to Kings Mountain, NC, then to Shelby, NC where I graduated and left for the Marine Corps. After getting out I lived in the Greer, Greenville, SC area for 20+ years. I began copywriting and building websites for larger companies and gave it a break. I've been back involved with my business now for the last 10 years, working to stay up on my knowledge of the internet and how fast it was changing. Furthermore, I'm skilled at many things in the Digital Marketing area but love Social Media Management & Blogging/Copywriting.
