A Final Word About Work-From-Home Resources
During the pandemic, work-from-home was the only option for many professionals. However, even as businesses have been re-opening and returning back to normal, many employers continue to see the value in letting their employees work remotely.
Working from home certainly has its pros and cons, but we’d like to think that there are more benefits to it. That, and the pandemic might actually be the tipping point that finally convinces more businesses to work more along work-from-home lines.
Still, it looks like the work-from-home lifestyle is here to stay. Not just for regular nine-to-five employees, but also for business owners, freelancers, and entrepreneurs who prefer to work remotely (at least more than working from a regular office space).
Here at LOJO, we’ll keep on compiling useful work-from-home resources for digital marketers, business owners, and entrepreneurs of all types. Do check in with us from time to time.
