Starting a remote business has become increasingly popular recently, especially due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “The Great Pause” inspired many of us to rethink how we spend our days and what we do for work.
If you’re considering going out on your own in a new business that will let you work from anywhere, you’re not alone. In the U.S. alone, new business applications were up more than 20% year over year in December 2021. Many entrepreneurs – new and established alike – are looking for opportunities to take their business fully remote.
Tired of being chained to your desk and confined to a single location while running your business? You’re not alone… taking your business 100% remote and being purely location independent is becoming increasingly popular among entrepreneurs.
And it’s worth it – you may not want to take your laptop to the sandy beach (the sun’s glare on your screen sucks, too), but could be paragliding after work in Cape Town today and exploring Renaissance art in Florence on your lunch break next week.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a shift in the acceptance of remote work preferences, according to a recent survey by PwC, and organizations are being challenged to maximize the potential of their people in this new normal. In fact, researchers say, “We’re on the edge of a new world of work—one brimming with ways to reimagine how we use technology to collaborate, innovate and deliver differently.”
