Marlon Jansz has shared his remote working experience with us.
I am a CIMA qualified Freelance Accountant in profession, working for Convert.com as Head of Finance & Operations. Also the Founder of the "The Freelance Accountant" an accounting firm.
I work for Convert.com an A/B testing privacy oriented SaaS company. I would consider myself more of a freelancer than a Digital Nomad but I love travelling.
I was working in a typical cooperate 9-5 job when I started my side hustle on Upwork as a Freelancer, then I met Convert.com a 100% remote company with individuals from around 18 different countries. It was a life changing moment for me and I decide to go full-time freelancer pre-pandemic which helped me be resilient in facing the pandemic situation.
No commuting, I use to travel over 4 hours back and forth to one of my previous employers. More work life balance with more flexibility in work times and freedom to travel when there was no pandemic restrictions.
I miss the physical meet ups with my co-workers, in 2019, I met the Convert.com gang in Bali, Indonesia, it was company sponsored retreat.
Palawan in the Philippines, Singapore, Bali Indonesia and I love my home country Srilanka, So many beautiful places to work from
Mostly prefer Home, but the occasional co-working and coffee shops
I would love to travel to Europe, I just need a laptop and stable Wifi connection.
It's sometime challenging to be productive in remote work environment. I use the GTD (Getting Things Done) Method and Pamodora Technique to help me be focused and productive.
Asana, Slack , Loom
Upwork is good platform to find remote gigs, I am a top rated plus freelancer on the platform and help beginners get started.
I coach people to be successful on Upwork.
