Marie, tell us a bit about you.
I am originally from Münster, but already live in Hamburg for a while. I studied psychology - well, I’m about to finish it ;) - and I am in the process of starting a business as a systemic coach. At Gerlent I have a variety of different responsibilities.
What are you doing at Glolent?
Basically, I bring interesting new projects for our freelancers on board, I manage our accounting tasks and have other responsibilities in Human Resources. Regarding HR, I interview potential candidates for our communities and update our HR processes.
Apart from work, can you share with us one of your passions and are you able to combine it with remote work?
My biggest passion is travelling - the best hobby to combine with remote work, actually. :) At the moment, I am not traveling so much though - would like to change that soon. Moreover, I love surfing, which I did last year in Bali - I can’t wait to do that again. Painting is another hobby of mine. I could do that anywhere but prefer doing it at home.
What do you think makes our international community of freelancers special?
I really enjoy the mutual support that is offered in our community. In general we have a tolerant, curious, flexible and free work culture. That’s my daily experience.
What is that little piece of advice you would give somebody who wants to start out as a professional freelancer in his field or turning a location independent job in a remote one?
Try to work less from home and remember spending a good amount of time offline to recover. ;)
