The idea of working for a few hours each day on the beach sounds great but how realistic is it to work remotely in a full-time job? Is the reality of full-time remote work more stressful than freeing?

She explains the benefits and drawbacks to remote work, how to approach your employer about transitioning into a remote position, and the surprising professions she’s seen people work remotely.
