I am not the first to ask this question, and sure thing, I am not going to be the last.
It is open season to evaluate all consequences and implications of one of the most important moments in human history. The latest pandemic did not travel light. It paid us a painful visit with an extra-large suitcase of the most profound changes. Everyone and everything is affected. Not only how we do our business, but also how we live, interact with each other, and eventually, define ourselves.
Buckle up, because this article takes you on a bumpy ride!
Let’s begin with a simple and innocent question. Where to look for freelancers? I’m talking about geography and locations in general, not about particular freelance platforms.
You have probably seen it so many times in the movies or on TV. Some of us did it ourselves. It works like this. Spin a globe, close your eyes, and use your finger to stop it and choose a random location. Here’s the thing about freelancing.
You aren’t going to make a mistake. Freelancers are scattered all over the world. …
What’s the current situation with working-from-home available options? How does it work?
As a remote worker with a law degree, I can tell you first-hand, it’s the “Wild West” for people who (used to) work in offices. But, in a good way!
The current “lawless” situation is actually based on compromises. Employers and employees have never been so friendly with each other and willing to grant all work-related wishes as they’re doing now, during the pandemic.
Hey boss, can I work from home today? Yeah, buddy, sure thing. No problem at all. How many (what) days can I work from…
So, how do you feel about going back to your old office in our new post-pandemic world? Yeah, it’s complicated.
I already wrote about it: Hybrid Working Models and Post-Pandemic Returning To The Office Problems. I did my very best to dissect the problems, cover all angles, and hear both sides of the remote work story (employers and employees). I honestly thought that summing up the available options (choices) would do the trick:
There’s no ideal freelance platform.
You can try, but you won’t find two clients or two freelancers who have reached a consensus about a certain freelance platform. That’s good. Diversity in the freelance industry is a blessing.
It’s surprising how little we actually know about the most widely used freelance websites. That’s bad. Ignorance isn’t bliss in this case.
Here’s a simple truth about freelancing. One-freelance-size-fits-all just doesn’t work. No freelance website can make all clients and freelancers happy.
With these thoughts in mind, I decided to present three pros and three cons for both clients and freelancers for the…
John David McAfee is a kaleidoscope.
When you look at him, his life, and achievements, you see what you want to see. You remember, only the things you like.
There is a part in the movie “Gladiator” where Marcus Aurelius (Richard Harris) says to Maximus (Russell Crowe):
“When a man sees his end, he wants to know there was some purpose to his life. How will the world speak my name in years to come? Will I be known as the philosopher? The warrior? The tyrant? Or will I be the emperor who gave Rome back her true self?”
Is it too soon to say that we’re already living in the post-pandemic world?
We have a vaccine. Many countries are lifting lockdown and travel restrictions. Everywhere you look, there are signs of hope and overwhelming optimism.
But there’s one question that’s on everyone’s lips. There’s one more confirmation that everything is OK, we’ve all been waiting for.
When are you going to get back to your office? More importantly, how do you feel about it?
What’s wrong with this news title? “Many anxious about going back to the office despite loneliness of remote work.” Are you surprised and shocked…
My countryman, Nikola Jokic, AKA “The Joker,” is this year’s NBA MVP Award Winner.
He made history in Sinatra-My-Way-style. “His story is an incredible one after he was the №41 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.” And there is more to his achievement, especially when you compare it to Novak Djokovic. The tennis icon, who’s well-known for his Spartan and healthy lifestyle, is the exact opposite of the unwieldy NBA player who “used to drink a gallon of Coca-Cola every single day.” Yet, “The Joker” made it and proved everybody wrong who doubted him.
But, this isn’t a story (only)…
Newbie startups fly HIGH and then fall hard! Here’s why.
HIGH is my acronym for the Four Horsemen of Startupocalipse:
The initial enthusiasm is dope. I get it. You just can’t get enough of that overwhelming feeling. New entrepreneurs aren’t even halfway there, and they already have a change of heart. They realize it’s easy to be a self-proclaimed entrepreneur. You become someone else — a better version of yourself. But there’s a catch. The entrepreneurship road is long and dusty. You have to make sacrifices. Either you are totally in, or you are out.
