The Argument for Working From Home

Category: BusinessFeaturedMobileProductivity Comments: No comments

working at a computer in pjsAs we become more and more plugged in, it becomes easier (and more feasible) to do more from a distance. That’s true of work, phone calls, or just sending information at a moment’s notice. It’s 2016 – you don’t need a fax machine or an uninterrupted phone line; you need a smartphone with decent reception. Add in a home computer with Internet access, and the options are almost endless … and they’re constantly expanding.

Which is why it might not be all that surprising that working from home is becoming more and more common, more accepted, and really, considered a growing norm.

For the workers, that means a lessened (or completely eliminated commute), more convenient hours, a relaxed dress code, and more...

Pokemon Go Explodes Into Existence

Category: BusinessMobile Comments: No comments

PokemonI played Pokemon religiously growing up. I got a Gameboy Pocket for Christmas when I was seven or eight years old. I drained countless pairs of double A’s on Red Version. I watched the Pokemon cartoon in the afternoons when I got home from school. As I grew up, so did Pokemon — releasing more and more editions of the game. I’d add to my collection all summer. When my parents told me to go outside, I’d take my Gameboy with me and play there. I had books that included maps of the various regions — Johto, Kanto — and complete lists of the Pokemon and all of their abilities. I bought the last Pokemon game I have purchased my freshman year of college, more than ten years after my first game. I still play through them once in awhile.

I don’t play Pokemon Go.

TSR 03-04-16While I’m not a full-time freelance writer, I do get to spend a day or two per week scrawling blog posts for hire. I work from home, and that means I’m operating out of a studio apartment. It’s cozy, sure, but the perks are amazing. If you’re considering dropping your stuffy day job, I’ve got just the motivation you need. Here are some of the incredible benefits of working from home in a 545-square-foot apartment.

All you can drink

A famous economist once said, “There’s no such thing as a free lunch.” Well, that’s not necessarily true. My apartment complex has a coffee machine in it that I don’t have to pay to use. I realize that the device is built into the cost of this complex — that’s where economic analysis comes in...

5 Ways Manage Your Inbox

email-overload1We’ve all had that inbox. The one that hosts thousands of unread messages. It likely has a full box of spam – it might even be full itself. (Yes, you actually can max out storage space, which then sends new messages in the opposite direction.) Rather than taking the time to delete what was unnecessary each day, you let it all pile up, and now it’s basically too overwhelming to start. I want to panic just thinking about it.

But there’s an easy fix to this email mess. Rather than putting off everything, you can help combat your maxed out mail, and allow you for timely correspondence.

  1. Clean Out the Unreads

First things first: it’s high-time to get that number of unread messages as low as possible, which is zero. If messages are months old, just delete them and start fresh...
