Meet Darren Cronian, your Remote Job Coach

My Story

Aged 16, I left school with very few qualifications. After a year in college, I acquired my first job and worked for the same organisation for 24 years. This resulted in getting stuck in the comfort zone, hating the commute to work, and counting down to Friday. 

After spending many years, staring out of the office window wishing to be somewhere else, a new focus took over my life.  My dream was to escape the office, work remotely and travel the world.

Living the Dream

At the end of 2014, aged 40, I made the difficult decision to quit my secure, well-paid job.  The reality is, it took two years of clearing debt, saving money and making sacrifices to get to the stage where it felt comfortable enough to quit.

When I stepped off the plane in Bangkok, I had no idea what the future held for me. Visiting SE Asia for the first time was intimidating: travelling to Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam.

Nearly six years on, I am still living the dream.  My perspective of the world has changed after living in cities like Tokyo, Seoul, Kuching and Kyiv.  It was the best decision I have made in my life.

It’s possible, and you can do this too.

The journey so far

Working remotely has been a life-changing experience: dealing with the challenges and learning from mistakes. Since leaving my employer of 24 years, I landed remote jobs in Quality Assurance and Customer Support. My background is in IT and being multi-skilled has helped me continue to work remotely for over five years.

One of my other passions is building communities and helping people as a remote job coach. My focus is on building, this website into a community for people who want to escape the office and create freedom in their life while working remotely.

Work & Life

Working 9-to-5 in an office is archaic. Remote working is here to stay. It’s time to stop counting down to Friday and create a future where work and lifestyle are treated equal. The fact is, remote working gives you more time to do the things you love in life, or, spend more more time with the people you love.

If living through a global pandemic has taught us anything, it should be that there’s more to life than living it in an office for 40 hours a week. I want to share this message with the world and help people achieve their work and life goals.
