Now that I have been working online for a few months I thought I would share my experiences with you guys. I have had a number of comments, emails and messages asking me what working online is like and how it’s going. I also know that a number of my readers want to eventually move to working online full-time like I am currently able to do so posts like this one may be beneficial for them.
I wanted to do like a series of posts about my experiences working online and since I’m in a good mood I decided to talk about the pros of working online. Although I have been working online part-time for quite a while now I have only started working online full-time for a few months since I am no longer in university and have more time to take on new clients.

Here are the pros of working online full-time that I have found in the last few months:
I Can Wear PJ’s All Day
I had to have this as my first pro because who doesn’t want to work from their bed in comfy pjs?? It’s such a blessing not having to go to an office or something every day and being able to work from the comfort of my home.
The pjs represent a bigger pro. As you guys know, I’m not great with human interactions and working with lots of people in a tiny office or something doesn’t sound ideal for me. Of course, it would be super awesome for them since I’m amazing but personally I like to be able to do things comfortably and this makes me feel really comfortable.
I also like the idea of working from home for now because my mum has some health issues at the moment and I like being able to be around to help her. I can do a lot more working from home and that way she feels less stressed out and busy.
I Can Do Things At My Time
Another huge pro for me is being able to work at my own time. I find 9-5 jobs a little bit restrictive. I know it’s great for a lot of people but the truth is I’m really not a morning person and I also don’t like work feeling forced. I have always wanted to enjoy what I do and being able to work at my own time makes me enjoy the work more.
I can also pace myself accordingly. For example, I’m not really a morning person so in the morning I usually work on stuff that’s more simple or easier to do. I work much better in the afternoon and at night so I do the more difficult tasks at this time and most of my work is done at that time. It works well for me and doesn’t really make that much of a difference since I’ll have done the work I’m supposed to do by the end of the day.
If I was working in person, I would not have the privilege of working at my own time and would have daily deadlines which just don’t work for me.
With working at my time, I can also squeeze in time for my own blog and social media as well as other things such as cooking and cleaning which I often do while I take a break from working.
Travel Isn’t An Issue
As you probably know if you have been following me for a while, I like to go out and travel and just in general don’t like being confined. With working online, I can continue to live my life without too much change. I can travel if I feel like, go out when I want and it doesn’t make much difference. I generally have about 3-5 Zoom meetings a week with clients depending on what they work with me for (for example, when I have virtual Tarot readings I have more meetings but they are shorter whereas blog management or social media management meetings are longer) and apart from these times I’m free to plan my life as I want as long as I’m not slacking off which I make sure I’m not doing.
Long Distance Is Not A Problem
Finding work is quite difficult everywhere these days. I think it’s particularly more difficult for the younger generations since we have a lot less experience and there are fewer jobs available. However, working online allows me to work with people from all around the world which really increases my job opportunities.
I can and currently am working with people from multiple different countries and this really helps me get more work.
Working online saves a lot of money for me too. I don’t have to go to work (physically) which helps me save money on transport, I don’t have to rent an office or workspace, I don’t have to pay for things I don’t already pay for like WiFi. This way, I can save most of my profit and invest it into my business/getting more clients.
Multiple Streams Of Income
If I was working full-time, especially if I was working for someone else, I would have to do one or two things and would not really have the ability to do so many different things at once. But with working online, I get to have so many different streams of income and they’re all things I enjoy doing. It also helps make more of a profit if you are doing a lot of things instead of just a couple or one job. You can check out all the services I offer by clicking here.
I hope you enjoyed the first post from this series and I hope you found it helpful or at least informative. In the next post, I am hoping to talk about the cons of working online. I was also thinking about sharing how I am able to work full-time online and how I worked online part-time while in school and then university. I would also share how you can do the same no matter how many followers you have online. If that’s something you would be interested in reading please let me know in the comments below so that I can decide whether to share that post or not. If people are interested in reading that kind of post I would love to share it and if not there’s always other things I can write about.
Do you work online? Have you ever worked online? Would you like to work online if you had the chance to?
Let me know your thoughts in the comments- I would really appreciate your input!
