Hello! Welcome to Work from Home Happiness. I’ll be your tour guide and sometimes cheerleader as you set out to escape your cubicle.
Who am I?
I’m Ashlee Anderson. Nice to meet you.
I truly believe that the future of work has no geographic boundaries and that everyone should have the freedom to work wherever they’re happiest. For some that may mean from their home offices and others while traveling the world. And my goal is to empower and encourage out-of-the-cubicle thinkers everywhere to kick their cubicles to the curb.
After all, why spend nine hours a day in an office if you don’t want to?
So, if you’re looking for an alternative to the typical 9-to-5, you’ve landed in the right spot!
While the name of the blog is Work from Home Happiness, my main objective is to help others find happiness in working on their own terms.
Yes, sometimes this means working from home. But other times it means freelancing, solopreneurship, or even full on location independence allowing you to work from Baltimore, Bali, Starbucks or Boise — the choice is yours.
This blog is my way of sharing what I’ve learned in the last six plus years as a remote worker and to (hopefully) serve as inspiration to help you realize that you too can achieve work happiness as a telecommuter.
Since launching back in 2015, I’ve covered dozens of real work from home options and ways to earn money remotely in hundreds of blog posts. For newcomers, the sheer volume of information on the site can be overwhelming. That’s why I created this page containing my best resources to date.
Ready? Let’s go! Oh, but before I forget, you can always reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or say hello on Twitter if you ever have a question, need help or just want to chat.
