Rhonda has worked full-time from home since 2007. In this presentation she shares her telecommuting experiences and the pros and cons of working remotely from a corporate office. As each working situation is different, she will not cover how to convince your boss/organisation that you should work from home; however, she will share some figures, information, and resources that may help you build your case.
