“The difference between school and life? In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson.” – Tom Bodett

This is section one of a multi-part series on taking action to work remotely in 2011 that will be divided into three section; “Educate Yourself”, “Prepare Yourself”, and “Hustle”.
The first step to taking action is education; you want to go fishing where the big fish are so to speak. Education in our context is not about learning new skills, taking courses, getting certified and so forth, rather, it is learning what the opportunities are, where they are, and how to make yourself stand out above the crowd so you get your pick of opportunities.
We will be covering one topic in detail per post for the next few posts before moving on to the next section, “Prepare Yourself”. Topics to be covered in detail for section one includes;
- How do I find remote work opportunities?
- What are the best remote work opportunities and which ones should I consider avoiding or more carefully considering?
- Sought after skills and experience for remote work.
- How to stand out above the crowd, resume and interview skills for remote jobs.
Please leave comments if there are other topics you are interested in covering in this series.
