Editor Maintains Editor Status While Relocating for Family Emergency
After working for EditorLive for a little over a year, my family dynamics required me to move halfway across the country on very short notice to become a caregiver to my nephew. With EditorLive, I have the freedom to work where and how I choose. I am thankful that I had the flexibility to not only move but adjust my work schedule to accommodate my family's needs. Within three weeks, I was able to put my house on the market, relocate seven states west, move in with my brother (and eventually find a condo), get settled, set up my Wii, and adjust to my new life schedule; all the while I had a flexible and accommodating contractor relationship with EditorLive. Because I edit for EditorLive, I did not have to worry about finding a job in my new hometown; my job simply moved with my home office. The only adaptation needed was for me to become used to living in a new climate and time zone. Now I have the joy of being a vital part of my nephew's life as one of his primary caregivers.
