But there is more than just language that makesrepparttar global office a tricky workplace to navigate. Aside fromrepparttar 137859 lack of water coolers and washrooms, most ofrepparttar 137860 world works in metric, butrepparttar 137861 biggest Internet market works in imperial. So some customers won't know what a mile is, and others won't know what a kilometer is.

And everybody spells funny to someone else. Is it honor or honour? Center or centre? Folks or peeps?

Fortunately for me, I live in Canada. 95% of Canadians live within a stone's throw ofrepparttar 137862 US border. (They are all folks, byrepparttar 137863 way.) So we officially learn to spell and to countrepparttar 137864 wayrepparttar 137865 British do (but they are still not peeps). Nevertheless, Americanisms sneak acrossrepparttar 137866 border by osmosis, perhaps due to an attack dog budget shortfall atrepparttar 137867 illegal aliens department.. At least I'll know what a mile is it's that thing people want to take when I give them an inch.

And what about currency? I make it simple. I use US dollars, because that really isrepparttar 137868 currency ofrepparttar 137869 Internet. But I also accept Paypal payments, so anybody can input their favorite currency and out pops US dollars on my end. I wish more people would do that. I could use more dollars.

If none of that phases you, consider time zones. Just as a client in Australia is waking up, your client inrepparttar 137870 United States is going to bed. And how will they reach you when you are not inrepparttar 137871 office. Services like email to phone conversion can help. So can insomnia.

Nobody twenty years ago would have imagined that you and I could sit at home and type words into a TV screen to make a comfortable living. Welcome to my office Planet Earth.

Hmm. Right now I am reading The Hitchhiker's Guide torepparttar 137872 Galaxy...I wonder if I can work from home onrepparttar 137873 Internet on any other planets...
