Yesterday I typed in these words “I want to work at home on my computer” and was amazed to find 375,000,000 had typed in that phrase! I wondered were they mostly would-be stay at home Mum’s, retirees wanting to subsidise their pensions, post graduates who couldn’t find jobs, students eking out meagre funds, or business men tired of the rat-race. Certainly there are a lot of people looking to change their lifestyle.
My revelation was after talking to my son in Australia who has been living there happily with his wife and family for several decades. He loves it there and is unlikely to return to England except for a brief holiday. He has a great job and is doing extremely well, and has what seems to me to be a great lifestyle. A large house he has built with all the trappings, a car and boat a camper-van, and great family, but he is feeling burnt out and looking for a change in career. This is what started the conversation.
