Interview with Shivani, a remote content writer who shares lessons learned

I’m more of a short-term goal type of person because if there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past few years, it’s that no matter how much you plan, life happens.

Our losses, challenges, growth, relationships… they all contribute to making us who we are, and we need to be adaptable to handle what comes our way.

I break my goals up quarterly — it allows me to focus on goals I can tangibly achieve in the near future and steadily grow while being flexible enough to move the goalposts (up or down) if there are things beyond my control.

What I do want over the next five years is to keep learning — by doing, by reading, by observing, by taking courses. Learning new skills and improving the skills I have is how I want to challenge myself. It’s not about achieving perfection in anything. It’s about growing and being the best version of myself that I can be.

Shivani provides all you need to know about making remote work...work. She shares tips on finding the best remote work opportunity and thriving once you get it.
