Our final contest of 2019 features prizes that help you all year round. With 17 total prizes (a total value of $2,915), we’ve got things to make your life a little easier, to help you work smarter, and to help you have a little fun.

How to Enter

To enter our December contest, and win one of 17 prizes, leave a comment at the end of this blog post answering this question:

How does (or could) having a work-from-home job or flexible job help your life?

To get you started, here are some ideas.

A remote or flexible job would help my life because:

  • It would let me balance family responsibilities with work.
  • I would be able to spend more time with my furry friends.
  • I would commute less, which would be better for the environment (and my pocketbook!).
  • I would have full control over the thermostat.
  • Working flexibly would let me volunteer more.
  • Working at home would let me work longer due to a disability.
  • I would have more time to eat healthy and prepare my own meals.
  • Flexible work would let me earn an income and pursue my passions.
