Dallas DeMarr, our Technical Content Strategist lives almost 2,000 miles away from the Turbonomic Headquarters here in Boston and has been working remotely for over a year now. He provided a 'day in the life' rundown on remote work, which you can find here, but we wanted to also get a sense for the work-life balance, the tools that help him be successful while remote and more.
Life is better when you bring excitement to what you do and if you're passionate about everything you do, you do those things with a positive attitude, a sense of purpose, and with a level pride. When I first got into the information technology field in the late 90s, I found that an old saying I once heard suddenly was applicable to me: “if you do a job you love, you will never have to work a day in your life." I had taken a passionate hobby of mine, information technology, and turned it into a very satisfying career that paid me very well. Having said that, it wasn’t my only passion and I knew that I had to find a work-life balance that allowed me to follow these passions.
