Here is some great advice on how to find a remote job, where to look, what to expect, and more!

1. First, you’ll need to find the remote job that matches your skill set.

6 Surprising Industries That Offer Remote Work

“As we hurl through 2019, one trend that doesn’t seem to be slowing down is the number of jobs that are starting to go remote. In fact, a study from Flexjobs.com stated that remote work grew a staggering 115% from 2005 to 2015.

While it’s easy to find a tech job that will allow you to flex your computer skills from anywhere, finding a job in a different industry may present more of a challenge.”

2. Having trouble finding a job you like? Don’t miss these job boards.

Top 7 Remote Job Board Websites

“The allure of remote work is well-documented: more and more professionals are in search of an opportunity to continue excelling in their careers while partaking in today’s push towards freedom and flexibility.

If you’re looking for a chance to expand your skills without succumbing to the traditional 9-5 in a conventional office environment,  you’re not alone. Some remote workers reside in their own cities, bouncing from coworking space to coffee shops as they please, and then there is that ever-expanding group of remote workers that is traveling the world, laptops in hand.”

3. Once you find the job, kill the interview to land the job!

6 Questions to Ask in an Interview for a Remote Job

“I believe in remote work. Big shock, right? But I have a secret — it is actually not a deep passion point for me. You do not find me on the speaker circuit pushing the idea that it will save the world. Sure, I have written a lot about the topic on this blog and elsewhere. And yes, I founded a company with an entirely distributed team. But I did not set out to become a remote work champion. Let me explain.”

4. Here is some more advice on how to get the job you want.

6 Steps: How to Get a Remote Job This Weekend (Ultimate Guide)

“More flexibility with your schedule. No more sitting in traffic driving to the office. More time to allocate towards side projects. The list of benefits goes on and on…

As a full-time freelancer and consultant, I get to experience many of these benefits. But being in business full-time for yourself also comes with more risks, higher costs, and the ever-present potential for down times.”

5. Once you get the job, you’ll want to be productive.

5 Habits for Crafting the Perfect Remote Work Day

“When people find out that I work from home and set my own schedule, the conversation is often met with an upbeat, ‘Wow you’re so lucky,’ quickly followed by, ‘You must have so much self-control. I would end up watching Netflix all day.’

From the outside, it might look like people who work from home have more self-discipline or drive than others. But I’ll let you in on a little secret.”

Why Everyone Needs Asset Protection

This week, one of our newest team members explains why asset protection is vital. Mikkel Thorup shares his own knowledge on the subject and sits down with Joel Nagel to discuss this very important topic.

“Whether you’re holding onto a small nest egg or a multi-million dollar investment portfolio, everybody wants to keep as much money as possible in their pockets.

But in a world where the vast majority of legal and regulatory systems are designed to disrupt capital accumulation, that objective is harder to accomplish than you might imagine.

Today, taking ownership of even a modest share of assets will expose you to a variety of risks that you may not fully understand until it’s too late.

I know that this might sound like unnecessary paranoia, but as someone who has spent the past 20 years or so working to achieve financial freedom, I can tell you that building real, lasting wealth can be extremely difficult if you’re not prepared for the challenges that come with it. In other words, getting rich is easy – staying rich is much more difficult.

Anyone that has listened to my podcast knows that…”  READ MORE.
