Price We Pay to Work. Balance, Health & Freedom

It’s only May and already it’s been a big year. I got really sick (again), quit my job, we started a new business. And we’re about to enter our 4th year of full-time RVing.

Time to talk about work-life balance, health challenges, and how our life continues to change in response to our desire for more freedom.

For the first time in over a year, I was finally able to sit and reflect on my journey navigating remote working from an RV.

You could say I’ve had a very diverse career, with a job history that looks something like this: marketing brand analyst, IT variant configurator, project manager. And most recently, Director of Operations for a nutritional supplements company.

Most of those roles, as it is for most other people, required me to be physically present to do my job. But as technology advanced, I began seeing more and more jobs that people were able to do from home.

I’m an introvert, so I need down time to recharge my batteries. I’ve also found that I am most productive in a very quiet environment.

The idea of working from home just made sense to me. And not just for my own benefit. Sure, I loved the idea of avoiding the time wasted on commutes, and the expense of buying clothes specifically for work.

I started giving more serious consideration to finding a new role. One with a more progressive company that would be more aligned with my interests and aspirations and enable me to work remotely.
