    • Me and my wife are planning to move to Perth from Brazil. Here is very rare someone work at home ( I do work ). How is the australian marketing in this issue?

      Basically I work as manager of my own business. My work is about 3 miles from my house, and I work with:

      – Email and Phone for Negotiations

      – Remote Desktop, for IT services

      – Spark + Openfire for Chat with crew

      – ERP system ( A brazilian version like SAP )

      – I just go there if something is VERY wrong, works perfectly.

      I can still study at home, workout in the morning. It is perfect and my productivity is very high with GTD and Pomodoro Technics.


  • Work from home full time. Love it. Except for school holidays. Right now I have a child watching GI Joe on another computer in my office.
    And I’m surfing Lifehacker in one of my mini breaks, you know, to keep me productive? 🙂

  • Been working full time from home for 5.5 years now.
    I moved from the city to a regional area 2.5 hrs away when I started working from home.

    I got made redundant from that job in January 2013, which given my regional location and lack of suitable local jobs was concerning, but fortunate to pick up a new working from home job in May 2013.

  • Work full time from home, freelance web developer / run my own firm.

    Love it, wouldn’t have it any other way.

  • I shall be working from home in one month’s time. After a 13 year career in the APS it’s time to make a change. I will be working as an Interenet Assessor for Lionbridge and doing some other freelance work.

  • once very 1-2 months, usually when i dont feel 80%, and i already had everything i can do for the day without being in the office all planned out
