Discussion on: 10 years of remote working. This is what I have learned so far.

I was expecting you make some comments about remote working as a freelancer. For example, as a remote worker for UpWork which I find somehow difficult.

That would deserve really a totally separate topic. My contracts have always been long and would probably differ from the usual contracting gigs. For example, the last time I contracted I did spend 5 years! Overall, I have never tried UpWork shops but it does not seem to differ from how any other offline traditional contracting agency works. Personally, I have always contracted direct to the client and it has worked very well for me. I never had any issues.
