The world of work is changing rapidly, with more and more people choosing to work remotely. Yolanda Solo, an expat Copifier living in Spain talks about her routine as a work from home copywriter.
Moving to Spain involved a lot of changes, including work, which was much harder to find in a rural community than in the corporate London I left behind. Trying to balance the need for an income with childcare is difficult at the best of times, let alone thousands of miles from friends and family.
My schedule is never the same from one day to the next which means I can’t commit to a full-time job or project, so the ability to pick and choose when I work is essential. One day I might work on web content for a client, another day it could be web research, another I might do translation and some days I just want to take a break from it all.
The thought of working in a regular 9-5 job, five days a week now fills me with dread!
Incorporating Copify into my routine means greater flexibility and extra income because it fits perfectly into the home worker lifestyle. It is essential to have the ability to write wherever you want, whenever you want, in between the chaos of daily life where you have to get the kids ready for school, run errands and deal with the unexpected tasks life throws at you.
I tend to spend most of the day on the computer writing, reading or browsing the internet and as soon as a new job is available at Copify I get an instant email alert. I can choose to ignore it or go to the website and accept the brief.

The thought of working in a regular 9-5 job, five days a week now fills me with dread! I could never tell my boss I want to go to the beach for a couple of hours before work; gone would be the stroll down to the café bar to get a shot of coffee and inspiration whenever I need it; and I would be staring at the gloomy faces of London commuters instead of the sunny blue skies of southern Spain.
