Remote Jobs = Job Freedom


11 Ways Remote Workers “Self-Author” 
As a “Self-Authoring” Adult Learner you are not being whimsically influenced by the ideas, belief systems, values and judgments of others. You “Self-Author” by allowing yourself to witness, listen to and observe the thought processes of others as they ask questions based on their assumptions behind the questions. You are self-confident in asking follow-up questions of their questions to gain an understanding of their perspectives or the way they “Make-Meaning” of their world. By asking follow-up questions you are collecting attributes of knowledge from patterns of behavior and actions executed from those patterns to Make-Sense of the World and environment in which you exist with your colleagues.
 1.) You Do Not Compromise Your Own Views.
2.) You Are Not Influenced by the Ideas of Others. 
3.) You  Openly Listen and Witness the Views of Others.
4.) You Connect with Others in Meaningful Capacities.
5.) You Have the Freedom to Critically Reflect on All Views.
6.) You Respect the Wisdom and Experiences of Outside Sources.
7.) Your Connection w/Others Improves and Informs Your Identity.
8.) You Are Aware of Your Ability to Make Your-Own-Meaning of the World.
 9.) You Maintain Your Identity While Regulating Your Relationships w/Others.
10.) You Construct Your Inner-Self. Thinking for Yourself. Thinking On Your Own.
11.) You Construct Knowledge Perspectives Separate from Established Authority Figures Early in Your Life.
