Pioneer Q & A
How did you start working remotely? Was it something you sought out or stumbled into?
I wanted a work-life balance and needed time to pursue my personal interests (I am writing a book and a few movie scripts!). I sought out working remotely and freelancing locally.
Do you still work remotely?
What do you do for work and for fun?
I watch a film/few episodes of a sitcom every day. I simply can’t NOT watch something. I read; I am on the Goodreads Challenge and hope to finish 24 books by the end of this year. I love to write.
As far as work is concerned, I am a writer, filmmaker, content strategist, script writer, designer, illustrator rolled into one. And I love doing each one of the above.
What cities do you call “home” and why do you want to be a Workfrom ambassador?
Mumbai, Chennai, Ahmedabad (India)
How did you find out about Workfrom and why do you want to bring it to your area?
I stumbled upon Workfrom when I sought out interesting Slack communities. India is a rapidly growing market for startups. Freelancers and remote workers are plenty. Co-working spaces and free-wifi zones are cropping up everywhere. I think it is crucial to include this in Workfrom.
Any tips you’d like to share for others wanting to or already working remotely?
Never lose hope. The work is just around the corner!
Any tips for those wanting to visit and work from your area?
One should definitely check out ‘Ministry of New’. It is undoubtedly the most beautiful co-working space in Mumbai.
What do you like most about Workfrom, and what would you like to see above all else come from us in the next year?
I love the easy-to-access directory of places, and the fact that you can check in and meet fellow nomads.
What I would like to see: Places around a workspace that have offers, tie-ups with gadgets/tools that can give members more discounts/offers, ways to link members across the world to collaborate on work, etc.
