You can keep your career – or start one – and still purchase a home in a Florida active adult community – and experience resort-style amenities every day. An October 2008 article in “Business Technology” says a recent survey found that “letting workers telecommute can increase productivity and save money.”
Many companies have already found that to be true, and now many more are jumping on the bandwagon, which is good news for those who wish to buy a home now in a Florida active adult community but want to continue to work. You can work either full or part time or even from another state – all online, in the comfort of a Florida active adult community.
Most companies found that it is actually more productive and they are able to hire better-qualified employees through the lure of telecommuting. But it’s not just good for the company; the article cited benefits of less stress on workers, the savings on vehicle wear-and-tear and the gas savings. Plus the survey found telecommuting workers were healthier and more likely to stay with their employer longer.
The trend encourages people to leave the workforce earlier and enjoy the things they’ve always dreamed of. Employees realize they can purchase a home in an active adult community now and still bring home a paycheck.
A Florida active adult community, like Lake Ashton in Lake Wales, makes it easy and fun to keep working the telecommute way. If you aren’t already Internet savvy or have your own virtual office, Lake Ashton’s menu of seminars and classes open the Internet doors for anything you have in mind. If you don’t have an in-home computer now, Lake Ashton’s computer lab with full Internet access will get you up to speed.
Picture it: after a few hours (or minutes) at the computer, your break can be an hour or two of fishing or boating on Lake Ashton. Another hour of creating a spreadsheet for the boss and you can have a rousing game of racquetball or a heart pumping session in the weight room.
You can track your investments from a Central Florida premier active adult community like Lake Ashton, but who’s to say you won’t want to start your own online investment consulting business? You can sell your own artwork created at Lake Ashton’s arts and crafts center on eBay, Craig’s List or your own Web site.
If entrepreneurial activities aren’t your cup of tea, perhaps you want to research your genealogy for the family tree, write the great American novel, or create a newsletter on any subject you specialize in.
Lake Ashton makes it possible to continue to work, have more time for your hobbies and sports, socialize at lighted tennis courts, the boat launch and dock with slips, the bowling alley, two 18-hole private championship golf courses – and much more.
So telecommute – and tell a friend: “You can reach me on the Internet at a Florida active adult community – my new ‘work’ address.”
