It is very good and ideal, the world is changing, it was only a matter of time.
2 to 3 years I've been working remotely, increased during lockdown period early last year.
Pay/earnings are generally the same but there is strong potential for improvement, I save on Transportation and other things.



Gardening, Flowering, Horticulture and Beautification work.
Professional House Painter
Haulage, Logistics and Transport ���
Supply of Agricultural Products, mainly Grains (Soya and Maize) ��
I Also buy all kinds of Scrap Iron and Metals, in Tonnes.

Working remotely is fun.

I am a web developer,
I get most of my clients via Fiverr and have been working remotely, full time for the past 13months.

It can quickly become overwhelming, as atimes I have more jobs than I can handle.

The pay is VERY GOOD, at least compared to the standard of living here in Nigeria. I have a BSc but would dare not leave freelance web development for even a level 12 government job.

Want to work remotely?
Be good at what you do before looking for jobs . Be VERY good. Once you’re good, you’ll need a few jobs to display on your portfolio and jobs will start flocking in.
