Remote work is on the rise—and not just in the last year. Sure, the past 365 days brought on a massive surge in the number of remote workers. But believe it or not, the interest in remote work has been trending upwards for almost a decade. It turns out that the past year just expedited the inevitable!
There are many reasons to go remote: your office is wherever you are, which means that you get excellent job flexibility. You choose where you work and how you work! In many positions, you can set your own schedule and choose your own hours. You can spend more time with your family. And let’s face it: some people just feel more comfortable working from home. But what is the necessity you’ll need if you want to work from home? A fast and reliable Internet connection! And what better place could there be other than right here in Brunswick County, N.C., living by the beach!So, What Makes an Ideal WFH Location?
