PODCAST: How to Pitch Your Boss for Remote Work

Zoe Glade Ep #20 How to Pitch Your Boss for a Travel Sabbatical

What’s the worst that can happen? You have to at least ask….but it’s not so easy when you have relationships, expectations, and commitments at work. How do you even start to figure out how to approach the topic of remote work for a period of time, or a travel sabbatical?

Zoe Glade wanted to go explore the US but she also wanted to keep her great job. She approached it all in a super smart way, pitched it, and won over her team. She made it work. And she gained so much more than a bucket list trip with her husband. She walks step by step how she handled the pitch. Hear how she did it, so you can try it too!
