Need a better phone for work? Here are some good deals.

You’ve spent the past few weeks, maybe even months thinking about what to buy for everyone else. But how’s your cell phone been treating you? If you’re like most remote workers a good portion of your time may be spent working on your cell phone. We actually covered this topic a few months ago in an article about the most basic of things you need to work remotely. An up-to-date cell phone is definitely on that list. If your phone itself or your service is slow, unreliable, doesn’t have enough features or is just plain outdated, this is a...

5 Easy Ways Remote Workers Can Get Fit Now

Some remote workers are excellent at taking care of themselves. There are tons of videos and articles all over social media about the really successful ones (often entrepreneurs) that wake up at 4.30 in the morning and hit the gym, have totally gluten-free and GMO free diets and consider “pizza” to be a four-letter word. But what about those that have allowed their remote work lifestyle to manifest a world where even their dress pants have an elastic waistband and are adjustable by drawstring?  You know that that world I’m speaking of – it dons its dwellers with disheveled hair that any emo...

I’d like to begin this post by asking: “WHAT IN THE WORLD HAS HAPPENED TO eBAY?” I remember back in 2005, collecting a bunch of DVDs from my shelf, putting them on eBay, and selling them with zero hassle. 13 years later, my experience as a seller was totally different. You may recall me talking about cameras that can be useful for a small business in a previous post, where I was referring to upgrading from a Canon 77D to a newer Sony model, and as a result, needing to sell the Canon.

A Work-At-Home Parent’s Remote Work Reality

Digital Nomads. Coffee Shop Hipsters. The Popular Crowd at the local Co-Working Space. This is the glamorous side of remote work. But what about people to who working remotely means barely leaving home? Those whose travel adventures don’t extend past the neighborhood supermarket, and occasionally the park if they’re lucky? I’m not saying this is always me, but since I’ve been working from home I have gone through periods where I haven’t left the house but once a week. In fact, I spent a whole year in go-out-once-a-week mode. By the end of it, I had never been so badly...
