How a Remote Work Culture Led to a Huge Transition in Life
By Lenise Rosado, Staff Accountant
Have you ever wanted to make a change in your life, but there were some things holding you back? I have always wanted to move to another state, but work was always a concern for me when considering relocation. I lived in South Florida for most of my life, and although the majority of people would probably think I was crazy for wanting to move, I was ready for a change of pace. It was always busy, the cost of living was creeping up, and any road trip I desired to take was super far away. Do not get me wrong - South Florida is beautiful, but so are many other places in the United States that I have been longing to see.
I started working at Fine Point Consulting in November of 2019. I was new to the work-from-home thing and the ‘remote life’ culture. It did not take me long to fall in love with this company and the freedom given to employees! It started me thinking - Could I finally make my dream of moving out of state come true? As my husband and I got comfy as newlyweds, we started throwing the idea of relocating around more and more. Finally, at the end of 2020, we took a leap of faith! We prepared ourselves to move to North Carolina right next to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
Not only did working at Fine Point make it possible for me to switch states, but our work model also helped me keep my sanity for the long to-do list that comes with a big move. If I were working a traditional 9-5 type of schedule, packing would have been a nightmare! Here, we work in teams and are given the flexibility to be a results-only work environment. I was able to work for an hour, then pack for an hour, and it allowed me to make sure that I was meeting both my work obligations to my clients and my team, while also continuing to make progress towards our move. This was my personal schedule up until we made the big drive. I would like to give a special thanks to my team for being extraordinary in their support while I needed to take a few days off to make the trip and settle in. It is such a blessing to know that I was not a burden to my team or our clients because the system we have in place ensures that all needs are met.
As we are settling into our new home at this very moment, I am completely grateful for the opportunity given by Fine Point. When you have happy employees, they are more than happy to work!
