Hi there 👋 I’m Daniel.
I’ve been working remotely for 7+ years and I’m here to help others discover the joys of working remotely. Everything I’ve learned and discovered will be shared here (mostly) and in the newsletter.
My discovery of remote work has taken me across the world, allowed me to meet amazing people, taught me new skills I’d never anticipate, and overall created a much better and well-rounded life for me. Growing your knowledge and skill in any of these will inevitably help make your life better, too.
Finding my first remote job changed my life
I pretty much had to work multiple jobs since I was 15 years old and I continued to do that all the way through college. During one of the organizational psychology classes, my now-colleague (@yoavf) came to talk to us about remote work. This was around the time when I had 3 jobs working as a nightguard, a waiter, and a website manager for a non-profit organization in order to pay for my degree and livelihood.
Learning about the benefits of remote work and how Automattic functions truly impressed me and just felt right. Working from home, not having to commute, having a flat organizational structure (which basically means the CEO is just a direct message away in Slack), choosing when you work without having to be micromanaged, traveling to various countries to strategize with the team. All of that sounded amazing to me, and would completely change my life.
Automattic indeed changed my life forever
After being accepted to Automattic, I’ve discovered a whole new world. The world of web development, travel, remote work, helping clients’ businesses, having my own financial literacy improve, having an incredible team and a supportive team lead, having resources for online courses and conferences, and generally be encouraged to develop oneself and become better.
Having lived this lifestyle for the last 8 years, I’m convinced that remote work is our future. It’s healthy both for the business and all individual employees, and allows the best talent across the world to find one another to create great things. I’m also convinced that remote work will continue to grow in the future, and will continue to be our savior during times of natural disasters and pandemics, such as COVID-19.
This website represents what I’ve learned
There’s so much information out there, and I’m motivated to do my part and share what I’ve learned so it can help inspire others and improve your lives just like it did for me. I’ll cover everything I know about remote work, leadership, financial literacy, building an online business, and anything else I find useful in this mission.
Lots more to come in the future!
I’m working on a few courses to help people discover remote work, build their own businesses online, and learning how to be productive in a remote work setting — both professionally for your career, and for yourself as a business. If you find any of this information helpful, follow along and share your insights with me!
