Hey there! This is Leslie & Rafael speaking (technically this is Leslie, but Rafael is around the corner).
Now, I’m sure this isn’t the first “About us” page you visited in your lifetime, so you probably know how this shtick goes.
This is the part where I go on and explain all about Home Office Dynamics – what we stand for, what our core beliefs are, what our mission is, yada yada yada…
But I’m not going to do that.
- I hate that whole “me me me” approach (let’s be honest, who the hell cares?)
- That’ll miss the whole point entirely because we didn’t create this website for “me” (well, maybe a little. Both Rafael & I like to rant, so…)
The whole point of this website is focused around helping other people.
Help them do what?
I’m glad you asked.
We’re living in an extraordinary era: more and more people are starting to work from home (viva la internet!), after centuries of working on the farm, in factories and corporate offices.
Just in a matter of a few years, the number of people working from home (at least some of the time) shot through the roof…
In fact, a study from 2015 showed that nearly 4 million Americans (!) work from home at least half the time… that’s over 2X more than 2005, just a decade earlier.
Now, I’m no stock market investor… but I know a trend when I see one – and the trend is clearly going this way: ↗
The thing is, we’re not used to working from home. And just like any new revolution, there are new challenges that weren’t even a “thing” a few years ago.
What Kind of Challenges?
- How do you stay focused with all those buzzing distractions at your house?
- How do you NOT go crazy staying in all day, every day? (hint: don’t do that)
- What about that whole “work life balance” thing? When all of a sudden they’ve meshed together?
- How do you find a job that allows you to work from home, to begin with?
I could go on and on, but I’m not going to bother doing it here… Hello, that’s what this blog is for! I’m not going to blow the surprise! I guess you’ll have to drop by every now and then to find out 🙂
Bottom line is this: There’s no “dummies guide” for how to make a killing working from home while staying productive (and sane) at the same time.
Working from home can be a dream come true, or it can be a nightmare. Our goal is to help you aim for the former.
Once you do that – you’ll be able to pay it forward and be a beacon of light to your friends and family. You’ll be able to rescue them from the soul-sucking job that makes them drag their *sses through that awful commute every morning, just to sit in their depressing cubicle for 9 hours.
So, I invite you to join us for the journey… so that in a few years from now, you’ll look back and remember this day as the day you FINALLY changed your professional (and even personal) life.
I’ll see your pretty face in your inbox!
