This week’s success profile is from Absar who has a home-based job with Brāv, which is an online platform to manage conflicts at school, work, home or more.
1) How did you get started working from home?
Transitioned, as I work fulltime and began working parttime at home.
2) How did you choose the work-at-home career you do?
Convenience and due to my skill set that allow me to work from anywhere, it works out well.
3) How did you get started (basic initial steps)?
I applied to offers that fit my skills that stated they sought remote hires. I interviewed and chose the best option for me, which is brav.org.
4) How did you get your first client or customer or job?
Brav.org interviewed me and explained how flexible working for them is. They allow people to choose how many hours a week they work, when they begin their term, when they wish for their term to end and what duties they wish to focus on.
5) How do you market your business?
We are able to market through mostly phone calls and emails. Essentially because Brāv has an ultimate goal of actual, virtual court and uses three types of conflict managers: 1. Brāv Ones who are trained on our site to manage the conflicts of others, 2. Licensed Professionals and 3. Bots who help manage conflicts through asking a series of queries and based on responses sending the information to the intended Administration. Brāv ultimately becomes the first option in workplaces, schools, in lieu of HRs, deans and principals’ standard policies. In this way, there is less work for everyone! In addition, teaming up with groups including schools, work places, police departments and task forces allow for accountability, where all parties are ensured to come together.
6) What does your usual day look like?
Wake up. Check my emails and answer any pressing ones. Work on short term projects requested by brav.org, and also work diligently on long term projects not due for months.
7) What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
That this option was viable immediately I graduate from university. It would save time and commute, not to mention I have learned so much more at brav.org than when I worked in a brick and mortar.
8) What advice would you give someone who wants to work from home?
There are so many options these days and websites that seek remote hires. Go for it!
