About this blog:

Work-Life Strategies & Solutions is a repository of information about how technological advances change the way we work as well as adaptive strategies and solutions intended for organizational leaders, managers, and individuals. This blog presents and reviews literature focusing on the following topics:

  • Challenges posed by globalization and the digital economy
  • Identifying future work trends
  • Employee engagement
  • Implementing a remote work system (a/k/a telework or workshifting)
  • Alternatives to the traditional 9-to-5 job for individuals

This blog will also occasionally feature my thoughts on news and information regarding the rise of cryptocurrencies as this phenomenon also has the potential to transform our lives.

    • Hi Tony,

      You’re very welcome! I must say that I’m quite envious of your chosen career track. Unexpected life events led me to fall in love with the study of birds only after I finished so many years of formal education. Now, I’m one of those people who wish I didn’t go to college and graduate school so early in my life (because I didn’t know what I really wanted). However, I’ve been doing what I can as a self-directed learner and conduct my observations in my own backyard and during my travels.

      Best wishes to you also!
      Lynn
