Working from home

I’ve recently been hired as a consultant for a business planning company. What this company does is get approached by different businesses that need help refining their business strategy. What we then do is perform an analysis of where their business is currently at and how they can improve while also identifying any further potential areas for growth. The great thing about this job is that there are plenty of opportunities to work from home. I personally love working from home. Some people hate it but I think it’s great. I save so much time now not having to commute to and from the office, plus I have more time to fit in a gym session each day. 

Since getting the job, I have set up a home office for myself to make my day to day more comfortable. The first week of work was sadly a bit of a struggle as I noticed a lot of my client calls were lagging and webpages were taking a long time to load. I started looking into how to fix slow internet as I knew I couldn’t continue working like this. Luckily the company was really understanding and knew that the first week was often a feeling out process for most staff. I really appreciate it when companies are understanding like that. Some companies seem to not understand that there is sometimes an adjustment period of time when starting a new role.

I have found an NBN technician around Melbourne to come to my house on Monday and help fix the slow internet issue. It’s funny how the internet was never a problem until now. Oh well, I guess all I can do is get it fixed. It was embarrassing constantly cutting out during client calls so I’m looking forward to no longer having that problem.

I’ll let you guys know how my experience with the technician goes.
