The Internet has revolutionized the way that we do business. Nearly all companies offer their employees the option to telecommute, and many take advantage of the opportunity. A 2013 study found that one in five Americans work from home, and this number is only rising. Working remotely (either from home, a library, or other collaborative working environment), allows people the ability to fulfill their personal obligations while continuing their workday, without having to use up one of their scarce vacation days.
Not only can working remotely be a great way to avoid a commute, be more productive, and save money, but it can also provide you with a way to travel without the constraints of being located where your physical office is.
