Honestly, I still miss life at the corporate jungle. I miss the respect and accolade given to my office, the perks, leading and managing people, office politics (yeah, I really miss that too. Lol), the bull sessions (I mean managerial meetings) with other departmental managers, and more. However, after more than two years of working at home, I am beginning (really) enjoy the freedom of being your own boss and working at home where I get to be with my son more often. I still regularly go out to call on clients and conduct briefings, presentations and trainings. But more often, my projects are done at home.
One of the best things about having to work at home is being able to do my job anytime and anywhere I want. With a laptop, a cordless phone, and a wireless router in place, I can virtually choose where to work at any given time. That’s what you call real freedom in the workplace. He he.
I rely on an uninterrupted internet connection to accomplish most of my projects and in communicating with my clients. Thank goodness for the amazing Linksys routers. Six months back, I am confined to my home office or bedroom for internet connection. Should I choose another location to work, I had to move the cables –darn! What a hassle! A friend recommended Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Router, and wooh! That’s when I gain my freedom finally! Get the picture now? I love working at home! The best career decision I’ve made so far!
