I'm quoted in Jacquelyn Smith's new article for Forbes, "How To Make Your Job More Flexible" - if you've ever wondered whether you could make the transition to working different hours or from home, be sure to check it out for some tips! Instead of quitting your current job and seeking out a new position that's advertised as being flexible, there may be some easy ways to create flexibility in your current position so that you can increase your productivity and better balance out your career with your personal responsibilities.
Some tips include researching what's available to you through your employer, making a list of responsibilities you would still do in the office during core hours and what you would do remotely, delivering a reassuring pitch to your boss, suggesting a trial period to evaluate how it's going, and improving your own skills so you have more to offer. For additional advice, check out the article (or the slideshow version of it).
