Happy Telecommuting Tuesday!
Are you looking for the flexibility to work from home and live in Montana? Or are you looking to change careers or to pivot in your current career? Have you considered telecommuting?
According to a study released in 2017 by the Montana Telecommunications Association, Montana ranks No. 1 in the country in telecommuting. Telecommuting offers former Montanans the ability to make Montana home again and is a career opportunity for residents in the Treasure State’s small towns.
Read what Wayne and Nancy Robinson have to say about telecommuting from Eureka!
Wayne and Nancy sold their home in the Boston area and moved to Northwest Montana. In 2008 they built their dream log cabin in the foothills of the Whitefish Mountains, just outside of Eureka, Montana.
Wayne had taken early corporate retirement and brought his new consulting services and clients with him to Montana. Nancy’s Boston Company assisted corporations from US, Canada, and Puerto Rico in relocating and performing housing buyouts to assist new and existing employees in their moves.
Soon after moving into their mountain cabin, Nancy had a request from her back-east employer; “can you help us from Montana, we need you, we miss you”. Thanks to our local rural broadband fiber service provider, Nancy has telecommuted from her mountain cabin now for the past 10 years. Nancy consults and moves massive amounts of data from her home in Eureka, Montana to and from her clients’ across North America.
Thanks again to our outstanding broadband service provider, Wayne continues to Skype-consult with his business partners in Israel and Boston. International meetings are “like being in the same room”. Wayne has also started an Internet Marketing Service from his mountain cabin and offers pro-bono and for-fee assistance to economic development efforts in Northwest Montana.
Wayne has also served on the Board of Directors for the Eureka Area Chamber of Commerce and the Tobacco Valley Industrial District.
Telecommute from Northwest Montana. It doesn’t get better than this.
