Life shouldn’t be about work. In fact there’s a saying I always go by – You work to live, not live to work. That’s why I wanted to work remotely. My story starts out like many others – I worked in an office for several years, when I finally decided that I wanted to work remotely and travel. Of course, the story of how one gets to that varies.
Everyone has a different story to tell, so today I introduce Christina, the blogger behind BuenQamino.
