About us


I am Gaz –  an Aussie living in America who has been a telecommuter for over twelve years.  I am here to help YOU understand the telecommuting game and to assist YOU to become one of the worlds best employees while you work from home.

IMG_6529While my place of work has stayed the same, I have telecommuted from overseas posts as well as from across the country. During that time I have managed staff (including difficult employees as well as great ones), managed huge projects and programs, run conferences, participated in meetings around the planet and had a highly productive and rewarding work career. At the same time I have managed my expanding family and lived a wonderful exciting lifestyle from apartments in cities to small farms on the plains of the USA. I have even worked from the beach in exotic locations…all the time never missing a beat at work. Telecommuting for me is a way of life that none can beat!

However, telecommuting is not easy – it requires discipline, resolve and self motivation. It is not for everyone…it takes special people to make telecommuting successful. But telecommuting can be extremely rewarding.

I promise I will not fill you with unachievable hype…but give you honest advice based on my years of experience.

Telecommuting is a wonderful lifestyle that I enjoy immensely and can be extremely beneficial to your employer.

I hope I can help you on your journey.
