Was there a time in your remote job search, that your alignment with your desires was truly tested? What did that feel like? How did you stay in alignment?

Big time. I come from a PR background, so I thought I needed to apply for PR jobs. But at the end of the day I was never excited about them, so I wasn’t getting the interviews, or if I did get one, I wasn’t excited about it. So I took my time doing some soul searching, and it turns out I’m much happier if content is my main focus. Once I figured that out, I started getting much better results. For me, getting into alignment meant realizing that just because I CAN do a certain job, doesn’t mean that it’s the RIGHT job for me. I had to find something that would make me happy too.

Do you think you attracted the job you have now? If so, what kind of things did you tell yourself and the universe in order to attract this success?

Yes! I followed Taylor’s advice and put my genuine self out there in the world, knowing that when the right opportunity came along, things would work out. I did some soul searching on what I want my career to look like both short-term and long-term. I made a vision board on Pinterest and kept looking back at it for motivation. I thought about how I wanted to feel at work everyday, rather than just what I wanted to do. And I got myself organized and set up for success! Want to make your own vision board to attract the remote lifestyle you desire? Join the VIP membership and come to our virtual vision board party next week! 

Why did you enjoy being a VIP member so much?

100% I wouldn’t have made it here without the VIP group. It helped me find the confidence I so desperately needed. I loved sharing this journey with such an encouraging, talented group of women. I learned so much about not only job searching, but also myself! I learned to advocate for myself, and that lesson will stick with me for life. Remote Like Me isn’t just a quick fix. It’ll change your life if you let it.

What was the most difficult part of this journey? How did you get through it?

The rejections. It’s always tough when you put your whole heart into an application, and maybe even an interview or two, only to get passed over. That’s what the group is for though! When I was feeling down, I’d jump in the Facebook group and catch up with everyone. There’s always so much sharing and love (and even venting!) going on in there. I always felt better after that. I also had a lot of hard work to do on my confidence. I have PTSD, and with that comes a lot of self doubt and anxiety. It was amazing for me to work with Taylor and the group, because it gave me a better model for how to carry myself. Just having a place to talk about the wins and the struggles, and to see how everyone else handled everything, it was such a positive experience for me. There is so much to be said for joining a group of confident, driven women. On top of that, I ended up having two different surgeries during my time in the membership. So there was the process of starting and stopping a couple of times. But that’s okay! I had to learn to be patient with my body and just trust the process.

What advice do you have for others looking to go remote?

Work. With. Taylor. Yes, it’s worth it. Yes, you deserve it. Yes, you can make it happen.

Nina

Front Desk Coordinator / Lambda School

What was your life like before working remotely? What has changed?

I was a full-time English Language Instructor in Korea for a year. It was fun, but teaching was tiring and I couldn’t do it for long-term. Mentally and emotionally, I was bogged down. I felt the same way about my part-time jobs that I had in college to a good extent in the past, except for a few administrative jobs that didn’t worsen my chronic illness. That’s why I wanted to go remote and that’s why I focused on administrative roles because I have the most energy at home and I enjoy administrative duties. Not to mention, I am still passionate about STEM fields and students’ success. Startups are even better for me since I love making systems and organizing chaos as well.

What was one belief or habit you overcame to achieve your goal?

I have a bad habit of burning out by doing too much in the beginning. I took Taylor’s advice on the amount of job applications I should apply to weekly seriously. I also kept being too hard on myself (since most remote workers are usually not people who just graduated from college) and became very negative during my job search, but surrounding myself with people who believed in me and my desire for a better future (since it’s easier to work at home than to work at an office when it comes to dealing with my chronic illness) helped me overcome these thoughts and beliefs.

Was there a time in your remote job search, that your alignment with your desires was truly tested? What did that feel like? How did you stay in alignment?

There was a time like that. Some people never truly believed that I was capable of getting a remote job and they scoffed at my efforts, so I kept doubting myself because of this. They just never took me seriously, even though that’s all I ever wanted – to get a remote job and not have to commute. It honestly felt horrible and it was not something I would want others to experience. They kept telling me that local and office jobs were way better than remote jobs, which slowly made me believe that they were right. BUT. The people who did believe in me, such as my Korean coworker friends (from my Korean teaching job), my long-distance Pakistani best friend, my older sister, and my other friends, helped me to keep going, to stay patient, and to stay in alignment with my desires, rather than going against my conscious and doing what other people tell me to do.

Do you think you attracted the job you have now? If so, what kind of things did you tell yourself and the universe in order to attract this success?

I knew what I was good at and what I enjoyed most, especially after I taught in Korea. So I told myself everyday what I loved to do and what I enjoyed. I also thought to myself daily: ‘I WILL HAVE ____ AND I WANT ____.’ So, ‘I will have a remote job with health benefits and I want to work in a job that lets me create systems and allows me to support people.’ is what I thought to myself daily. I never kept the mindset of ‘I kind of want…’ or ‘It would be nice to have…’ because I realized that it doesn’t bring to me what I really wanted to have in my life.

What advice do you have for others looking to go remote?

Be patient, go through Taylor’s program for the confidence boost and right guidance (since it’s not the same as normal job searching), and apply, apply, and apply! If you can join more Facebook groups to motivate or inspire you, while networking with the type of people who you want to be like, then that’s even better. Remember that it’s better to be in the right company than in the wrong company when it comes to your career and life development, so following your desires and joining Taylor’s programs are the perfect first steps towards getting what you want in life!

Dana

HR Analyst/Divurgent

Was there a time in your remote job search, that your alignment with your desires was truly tested? What did that feel like? How did you stay in alignment?

Yes, I felt defeated many times since my job search took so long. I actually had stopped looking for a remote job and had decided to focus on local HR jobs when I found my current job listed on LinkedIn. I really didn’t take it seriously at first since I was actively interviewing with other companies at the time. But everything about the interview process felt right and comfortable. They didn’t use behavioral inteviewing like other companies and I was able to answer their questions without second-guessing myself.

Do you think you attracted the job you have now? If so, what kind of things did you tell yourself and the universe in order to attract this success?

It’s hard to say since I wasn’t actually looking for remote jobs at the time that I found my current job. However, maybe that was the key, when I stopped looking for what I wanted, I attracted it. I had put it out into the universe and just knew that it was going to come eventually.

Why did you enjoy being a VIP member so much?

I enjoyed being a VIP member because of the personal attention I got from Taylor. Her resume reboot really pushed me in the right direction and allowed me to revamp my resume which I hadn’t done in years. She allowed me to look at things from a new perspective and her tips were super helpful.


What was the most difficult part of this journey? How did you get through it?

I think the most difficult was just the amount of time it took me to find a remote job which was about a year. I think I got through it by staying positive and not settling for jobs or positions that didn’t meet all my criteria. I had been interviewing for local HR positions when I found my current remote position and I could tell by the interviews, that they weren’t going to be a good fit. So, I guess also trusting my gut and the universe that I would eventually find a remote position to fit my skills.


What is your favorite part about your remote career?

My favorite part about my remote career is the ability to have a better work/life balance. Since I work from home, I can plan to do things throughout the work day instead of trying to fit them in after work. I feel like I am happier overall.

Tiffany

Content Curator, Digital Marketing and Travel Writer

What do you do as a remote worker?

One of my positions has me reading interesting articles from authors. I read them for quality and decide if they get distributed. I also help my own clients with digital marketing. This includes SEO, Social Media Management and ad copy. Recently, I have taken on some paid traveling writing, which is probably my favorite thing I am doing now. If you want to read more in-depth about Tiffany’s online income streams, check out her detailed blog post.

What is your favorite part about your remote career?

Setting my own schedule and traveling while working!

Was there a time in your remote job search, that your alignment with your desires was truly tested? What did that feel like? How did you stay in alignment?

I wasn’t getting past the first interviews in my job search. I decided to take a part-time job non-remote role to help support myself. It also helped me have a schedule so I would make better use of my time. I didn’t care for the job at all so it motivated me. I also felt that maybe starting my own business and freelancing was more what I wanted. I didn’t want to work on someone else’s schedule. If I want to work at 2 AM, I can.

What was one belief or habit you overcame to achieve your goal?

I was applying for remote roles with my old resume and not thinking that applying for remote roles would be any different. Remote Like Me taught me that I need to think out of the box when I applying for a remote position. Since you may never meet your team in person, I need to stand out in my application.

Why did you enjoy being a VIP member so much?

Being in the encouraging monthly virtual meetings with others. Taylor is also so supportive and positive.

The membership doors are open until April 22nd. Don't miss out!
