Work Is Something You Do, Not Somewhere You Go
I do 98% of my work remotely. I have occasional on site client meetings but I never take up residence. I have some clients that I have never met in person.
Because I work remotely I am mostly available to all of my clients from about 7:00 am to 11:00 pm seven days a week. My core practice is project management (getting things done) so it’s a huge benefit for the client to have someone keeping things moving sixteen hours a day, seven days a week. But they don’t pay for sixteen hours a day, seven days a week; they only pay for what they use.
I am available for client calls in the evening. Many clients come to love this because they can get other things done during normal business hours and follow up with me after hours or on week-ends. Not everyone does this but most entrepreneurs work nights and week-ends too.
Because I’m not in the building I’m able to focus on the important tasks and produce results efficiently. That means the client gets a lot of bang for their buck. I can typically handle a workload equivalent to a full time project manager billing only 15–20 hours a week.
I am very skilled at working remotely so I can offer tips and tricks which also save the client time and travel expense.

It works for me and I see it work for others, over and over again. Take control and take the plunge!
