From the desk of...
The Laptop Lifestyle
Perhaps you've heard of the "Laptop lifestyle?"
And while that may sound like a dream for many of us...
It's has become the reality for record numbers of people.
And, just to set the record straight, I'm not talking about some rags-to-riches story...
Or an overnight success story...
Or a get rich quick scheme.
What I AM talking about is the undeniable shift hundreds of thousands of people have been making -a shift away from working in their old job or job location to working from their homes or wherever they like.
Without beating a dead horse as to the reasons for this shift, one thing is clear.
The landscape of making money for the average person has evolved. More and more people are now choosing to work from home. They say, "Necessity is the mother of invention."
And with events of 2020 and into 2021, that necessity was a way for businesses to stay in business and for "workers" to earn a living.
So we saw record numbers of people working remotely. Heck, they could go into their office or place of employment even if they wanted to.
Slowly, businesses began "re-opening" and employees were called back into their offices.
But, guess what?
Many didn't want to go.
They discovered what it could be like to work from home.
No commute. No gasoline or tires. No formal work attire. A friendly work atmosphere. More flexible child- or adult-care options. And many, many more.
Some reluctantly went back.
Many others found a way to keep all the benefits of working from home.
They've adopted the laptop lifestyle
So, I'm curious.
How have you been affected by this shift to the laptop lifestyle? What's your story?
