009 - Would You Take Less Money To Work From Home?

009 - Would You Take Less Money To Work From Home?

September 5, 2022

This week Roy tackles another hypothetical! 

How much does that commute really cost?

Roy mentions studies showing that full-time workers in the largest cities were spending nearly an hour a day commuting. The average round trip commute in the 100 largest cities is 52 minutes, equating to an average annual opportunity cost of $5,600. 

At some point, you'll be faced with the opportunity to never have to go to an office again.

With that said, hypothetically, would you take $10,000 less knowing that you're spending these things on going to the office?

008 - Internet Hotspot: Remote Work & RVS w/ Sydney Brown

August 29, 2022

On this week's episode of the Work Wherever Podcast, Roy is joined by Sydney Brown to talk remote work. They cover working from the road, the travel industry, and how cities are being built around the trend of remote work.

If you don’t work with your hands and work with your brain, you can work remotely!

Almost half of American workers would take a pay cut to continue working remotely after the coronavirus pandemic. Some of the highest earning households had some remote capacity to them with these positions causing individuals to be willing to take a pay cut to work from home. 

Between parking, gas money, and breakfast stops, how much are you really saving by commuting to the office? 

 

007 - PROCESSES > PEOPLE > TECHNOLOGY

007 - PROCESSES > PEOPLE > TECHNOLOGY

August 22, 2022

This week, Roy touches on how many try to fix things with people or technology.

Salespeople want you to buy the NEW technology to “make your life easier," but there is no single software streaming service program that will provide you with a better quality of life. Using technology to leverage a refined process multiples production, however, using technology as a solution to poor processes, multiples problems. Similarly, Roy notes the importance of refining the rules and processes before you begin to add more people.

You make life easier, faster, and better by defining who you are, what your core values are, and how to do things.

Tune in for all the gems about processes, people, and technology! 

006- What If Someday Never Comes?

006- What If Someday Never Comes?

August 15, 2022

This week's episode touches on a "What If" scenario. Roy talks about retirement by generation, with baby boomers currently retiring and Gen Z next in line. For so long the dynamic has been to work hard and then someday... you can live every day like it's Saturday... and possibly only get to enjoy it for a few years.

Roy speaks on challenging this mindset and taking advantage of the opportunity to go full remote. 

Every day should be Saturday... NOW! 

We should be living... NOW!

You can be successful AND spend time with family. You can be successful AND take vacations. There are career paths where this is possible, that does not require a college degree, but just hard work and dedication! There is a shortage of developers. 

70% believe social security will collapse. So, what are you doing now, to make every day Saturday?

Roy challenges you to start living now!

005- How Remote Work is Changing our Communities

005- How Remote Work is Changing our Communities

August 8, 2022

This episode talks about the future of remote work. Roy covers how this affects the way we build our communities. There are some thought leaders and managers who still believe a 9 hour work day at the office is the only way to be productive. There's a battle between a grasp for control and innovation. 

2019 was a peak time for studies supporting remote work as the future. Microsoft released  a study in 2018 predicting the same. 
These were all pre-pandemic!

Will remote work be a trend or will it accelerate more than it already has? How will remote work change our communities?

004 - What Does ”Defining a Culture” Mean

004 - What Does ”Defining a Culture” Mean

July 25, 2022

Business culture seems to be the hot topic amongst society as of late. Which brought upon a question; what does it mean to "define a culture"?

Do you know who established the culture at your current employer? 

The widest of spectrums was used in this weeks episode as Roy utilizes examples ranging from the bible to American Football.

Think about the core values that you hold in high regard as well as, and probably even more so, why you hold them in such high regard. 

I challenge you to always be someone that you would want work for.

003 - Powering you to Work Wherever with April Dunham

July 11, 2022

Just how different are our lives when it comes to our jobs now compared to how they were prior to pandemic?

Roy is joined by April Dunham to discuss just that.

From the stigma that was associated with working from home, how strange it was to receive a call during "dinner hours" as well as the subtle and not-so-subtle differences between then and now. 

My how the world has changed.
