Why Working Remotely Saves Major Cash Money | Leverage Ambition
Here’s what’s missing from the conversation on why everyone wants to work remotely.
It turns out that going to work COSTS more money each year on workers spending thousands of dinero every year.
CAR – Maintenance, tolls, car payments, insurance, tires, oil changes, OH MY! No one really wants a car . Only folks really need a car when they need to commute to work. Let’s cancel cars and get snuggly in front of our space heaters to simulate the car heat. You don’t know what your missing with it!
GAS – Dame menos gasolina. That is the opposite of Dame mas gasolina. The whole ordeal is gross and if you ever grabbed a gas pump handle then rubbed your eye, 9 times out of 10 you got that dank pinkeye.
COFFEE – My coffee habits are questionably habitual and unhealthy. But when I commute I need it to function. And often. I am upwards of 5 cups a day. If the coffee sucks at work, which 99% of the time it sucks and if someone is telling you differently they are lying to your face, cold blood killer style.
LUNCH – A lunch out in LA costs thousands of dollars monthly. Packing lunch is also the pits. Let us cook a fresh meal from.home and watch us ace that 3pm pitch.
EXTRA CHILDCARE – The time is takes to coordinate childcare yearly can span the total length of a week out of the year. It is also not reliable and is a source of discontent from parents worldwide.
FEELING LIKE A CRAPPY PARENT – You have no alone time and you are in the merry go round of feeling bad for yourself and your kids for missing out on good time spent with them.
WORK CLOTHES – I loved Stitch Fix, but I really do honestly at the core of my being hate shopping. It is the brain of mybexistence. I always by a black shirt and I have no idea why. STICTCH FIX RULES! But I still want to stay comfy at home in my tie dyed Old Navy sweatpants.
MAKEUP – You can never have enough lip gloss, cover up sticks, blush sticks, mascara, extra tweezers, a razor, and powder. All of this plus the makeup remover adds up.
COMMUTE TIME – You can never get that time back. Also the environment hates you when you commute.
Working from home is a win for everyone. Office politics is better left at home and the only thing keeping it this way is by allowing everyone the dignity of their life by letting them work from home. Social hour is overrated and it’s time to get ahead and out of the house to meet your neighbors.
Do the right thing and let everyone work from home. Stop complaining and give people the dignity of choice. Also you’d want to it without shaming or punishing them for it. Save on company rent and your bottom line, while increasing productivity and human capital happiness.
Do the right thing. As the LORD said to Moses who in turn told the world, LET MY PEOPLE GO!
