The weather around the US has been a little crazy over the last week or so. Snow storms pretty much everywhere. Tornadoes. Thunderstorms. It’s just weird. It all prompted me to revisit a post I put up several years ago about snow days.
In the post, I posited about how snow days had changed from when I was in school vs when I’d held jobs. Even between different employers, the definition of a “snow day” had varied greatly. But in the end, when you work for yourself, by yourself, and from home every day, there is no such thing as a snow day.
Fast forward to 2020 and 2021. Corporate folks – whether they work for themselves or for someone else/for a company they don’t own – are living this life every day. Thanks to the pandemic, we’re all in the same boat of Zoom meetings, home offices, and being able to get your job done as long as you’re connected to the internet. And gone are the days of “surprise” days off thanks to Mother Nature.
But those same corporate folks are getting some of the same benefits I’ve gotten for years, too. A commute that’s 10 steps instead of 10 miles. Time saved in packing lunches because you don’t have to take your food anywhere. Saving money on “work clothes” because it no longer matters if your jeans have a hole or your shirt has a stain, so you “invest” in clothes you actually enjoy wearing.
I know today’s post got a little off topic. Not really news or tips and tricks on SEO or social media. But it’s where my head was.
