I love globalisation. There. I said it.
Globalisation’s focus on unfettered economic growth rather unfettered good has given the word a bad name, is all. I think globalisation can be done much better with a greater care for people and planet – with a focus on doing good for all rather than simply doing better than everyone else.
21st Century globalisation needs to focus on doing good for all rather than simply doing better than everyone else.
I am loving my new job as a freelancer, working globally as a Web & SEO Content Writer and Social Media Manager while working on building my own global social enterprises and supporting the Migori Health & Rights Network.
Working globally means I can work from home, from the beach, from parks and cafes. It has given me much more time to focus on the local – my partner, my family, my health, my home, my food and my community.
I am loving the digital lifestyle. I am loving the blogger life. My partner Brett Hansen is a puppeteer (we are to marry in June) and together we run Larrikin Puppets, a business he founded in 2012 which is now growing fast with performances at childcare centres, fetes, festivals and backyard parties every week alongside regular ticketed theatre performances.
And that’s why, instead of battling the traffic to a high powered, executive managerial 9am-7pm office job, I’m hanging out at the Studio Theatre and Cafe today working from the comfort of my laptop while Brett rehearses for tomorrow’s Super Weekend Show, a theatre production for kids and families to enjoy.
I realise not everyone has the same opportunity to work remotely. I realise I am very lucky. I pinch myself everyday.
Thank you, globalisation.
