What is freedom, really?

What is freedom, really?

My friend has a “real job” that is remote. She works totally from home, but she is not in control of her schedule. She also has many, many meetings each day. While she’s making good money, she is very unhappy.

I am not making as much money as she is, but my schedule is totally fluid. I have very few meetings, and I’m able to work around my life. Obviously there are deadlines and needs that influence my schedule, but I have a ton of freedom in my day-to-day life.

It’s hard to put a price on having nearly total control over your own schedule. It feels rather lovely.

This is the type of work-from-home business we want to help other people create… so you aren’t miserable in your work. You can take control and enjoy your time.

Shameless plug… if this sounds good to you, check us out!


Cool Shit

I’m really enjoying a free meeting recording program called Fathom. You connect it to your Zoom account and then record with that program. After your Zoom meeting is over, you get an email with the recording link just a few minutes later. It also creates a summary and a transcript all right there. FOR FREE. It’s definitely worth checking out.

Cool Movie I’m Watching

If you enjoy a silly romantic comedy that you can have on in the background, then I thought Rich in Love and Rich in Love 2 on Netflix were good. I didn’t have to pay a ton of attention to know what was going on, and it was cute. I tried to watch Unfrosted on Netflix while I was working, but this is one that you’ll have to actually pay attention to. There were a lot of clever jokes in there, and I look forward to rewatching when I can pay attention.


Shiny New Object I (DIDN’T) Avoid

I actually pay for an extension called Awesome Screenshot. I like it well enough that I’ve stopped looking for a better solution. The only thing I don’t like about it is that you can’t edit the pictures you take, like adding arrows or blurring content, for example. I’ve tried to find others or free ones, but I haven’t found anything that works as well. If you have a free screenshot/screen recorder extension that works great, please let us know about it.
