We’ll start at the beginning, with telecommuting the easiest way to transition into full-time boat life. Defined as a work arrangement where employees do not commute or travel to a central place of work, telecommuting may involve working from home, mobile work, or remote work. If you have the ability to perform your current work while traveling, then your transition into boat life could not be easier.
It must be said, however, that telecommuting opportunities are highly dependent on the specifics of your current job and the attitude of your current employer. While the flexible workplace is getting more popular all the time, not everyone is in a position to work remotely while they travel. Telecommuting is much more possible with jobs that involve technology and data, including IT workers, financial analysts, accountants, writers, designers, and administrative assistants.
In fact, any job where you spend the majority of your time sitting at a computer is ideal for telecommuting. While few employers are open to full-time telecommuting work, the situation is slowly getting better all the time. If you think you could perform your job online, it may be worth talking to your boss and trying to organize a trial run. Telecommuting is a particularly viable option for highly skilled IT workers and part-time travelers who want to return to their current workplace.
