Rob is a multi-talented remote worker with years of extensive experience in many fields. Based in North America and Asia, he gives us insight into his remote working experience.
What’s your current profession?
I’m a man of many hats. I’m a teacher, a member of the ClickFunnels Training Team, entrepreneur, marketing consultant and manager, programmer, I do lots of stuff.
How did you get started with working remotely and how did you make this transition?
I was was already living overseas teaching English and helping people with their Educational companies. The market went bad and I transitioned to providing my services and skill to a more online clientele.
Transitioning to this lifestyle is easy if you are not materialistic. I can live out of two suitcases and my Laptop backpack.
What are you currently working on?
Currently, I’m consulting on the ClickFunnels Training team. Outside I’m developing a motivational program with personal, funnel, marketing, and business sections for people that want to make the transitions to online business. As well as developing a business to help musicians learn to market themselves while they build a following and make money while they do it.
What’s your typical workday like?
I’m a bit of a workaholic. So I do 8 hour days when consulting and then another 4 or 5 hours on my personal projects. But I can make my hours whatever I like.
What do you like about working remotely?
Freedom, the chance to travel and experience the cultures of the world.
What do you not like about working remotely?
Some countries are a little strict on the technology that I carry around and sometimes the internet is there but not at the speeds I need.
Which city or country have you worked at since working remotely? Which one has been your favorite?
My favorite was in Songpa-gu in Seoul, South Korea. I had an apartment in the perfect location across the street from Olympic Park and 5 min walk to the Han River and 20 min walk to Jamsil (Lotte Tower) area.
Do you have a dedicated workspace to work?
Nope, I work where ever I want.
What tools do you use when you’re working?
Laptop, Phone, Earphones, and Mouse. If I stay somewhere for a long time I will pick up a cheap second monitor.
How do you stay focused when working?
Never had a problem with that. I set myself goals to reach and then I’m fine.
What’s the best piece of advice that you’d like to give to those that want to work remotely?
Don’t fall in to the party trap in countries when your money is worth more. Make sure to be have 6 months of salary saved up. You never know when you will need it. In most cases you won’t have health insurance working remotely, you will want the peace of mind of having it.
What kind of services do you provide, if any?
Too many to list. If has to do with business I have done it at some point in my life.
