Some tips for working remotely and the main learning points I had in my experience
Currently, it is very common to hear or read about how workers of the new era manage to balance their personal life and ambitions with their career goals through remote work. For example, one who travels the world while also scaling a new business. It sounds good enough to be real, but is it really possible? Well, the answer is quite simple and it is YES! Although it is important to mention that the way to achieve it requires a lot of planning.
I recently had the experience of leaving Colombia, where my home and office are, to live in New York for two months. On this trip, I got to know fantastic places and incredible people, and lived unforgettable moments… The flash of my camera helped me to register each minute I lived, but the most extraordinary of all is that I did all this while I was working. So, how was this possible?
With this post, I would like to share my experience working remotely. At the same time, I want to leave a guide for those of you who —just like me— want to take a trip but do not know how to start and what to expect. In addition, I hope this content is useful for anyone who wants to understand how remote work operates and its value for a team.
