Enabling businesses to lower their overhead and increase productivity, while utilizing the remote workforce of professional women —

When COVID-19 forced companies worldwide to send their employees home to work virtually, remote work had a big moment.

Yes, the rush to give employees access to all the tools they’d need to work from home was a bit, well, sudden for many employers. But after everyone settled in, what quickly became apparent to many office-based teams was that employees could be productive and focused when not in the office—in many cases, even more so. Employers everywhere began to understand that remote work really works.

The remote workforce trend shows no signs of slowing down. Zippia Research shows 66% of U.S. employees work remotely, at least part-time. And Upwork estimates that 22% of the U.S. workforce (36.2 million Americans) will be working remotely by 2025.

Although there are challenges that come with hiring and organizing a remote workforce, the reality is working with a remote team might end up being one of the best decisions you could make for your business. is one of the top places for businesses to find a remote professional workforce. is an online platform that matches stay-at-home women with professional skill sets with short-term work opportunities. Everything is now online and virtual; the work you need done should be, too.

The following excerpts were taken from a conversation with Dawn Wellott, CEO of

Q. How does work? 

We serve businesses by taking the tasks that need to get done and aligning those with skilled women who have chosen to leave the traditional workforce.

Our proprietary system notifies workers, letting them know they have been matched on a job and can bid on how much they want to do the job for. The work generally requires specific knowledge or skill. Scope ranges in time from one week to one month, with pay from $200 for a quick gig, to $5,000 for more skilled projects or consulting. It’s a WIN-WIN. Employers can hire for the exact skill needed and only for the required time. No over-hiring. No overpaying. No overhead. 

Connecting women who want to work with the work they love is what we do!

Q. Why should the first choice be

If you want quality work done by vetted workers here in the U.S., then is the right choice. Other companies out there may be cheaper but with you can talk to workers before you hire them, ask them to sign an NDA, and you won’t have to be afraid to share passwords. In addition, we guarantee the work! was started to create a platform that would be able to make process changes quickly, so that we could accommodate the needs of our freelancers and our clients. The application work needed to be wholly automated in each step, from beginning to completion, and to facilitate transactions between job posters (Owners) and freelance workers (Gurus) in an environment that’s safe enough that everyone will trust.

Suppose you are a business owner that doesn’t have the time or energy to go through the wringer of posting jobs, interviewing, training, and financing the overhead of a full-time employee. In that case, you’re ready to hire top talent the easy way. Hire a freelancer at

Q. Why does hiring women matter?

Since COVID, there has been a significant push to support local businesses. The number ONE way we can best help local businesses is to hire WOMEN. When women leave the workforce, the local economy suffers the most. The money that women generate primarily funds businesses like daycare, salons, boutiques, pet stores, restaurants, children’s sports, spas, hair salons, bakeries, and home stores. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. If we want to watch our economy thrive in many ways, we need to employ our mothers, sisters, wives, and daughters, to allow them to integrate all of the other attributes of life. 

Q. How has COVID changed how people work?

COVID has also been referred to as the “Big Reset”, meaning people across the board had the opportunity to stop and think about what was important to them and assess if they were on the life path they wanted. In many cases, folks found themselves not in the job, physical place, or emotional state they wanted. Since everyone was experiencing this simultaneously, there was less judgment about reassessing our place in life and making significant changes to accommodate our true life desires.   

Studies show that over 50% of us made significant job changes. If you didn’t, the person sitting next to you did! According to a new Pew Research Center study, “Roughly six-in-ten U.S. workers who say their jobs can mainly be done from home (59%) are working from home. Most (64%) of those who are now working from home at least some of the time say it’s easier now for them to balance work with their personal life.” 

For those who are currently employed, there is a new movement. They’re calling it the “third shift”. As a worker, knowing that you don’t have to feel guilty about working a few hours a day, taking off a few hours to make meals, help with sports or homework, then working a few more hours at night, after everyone is settled in… is priceless. The ability to have work/life balance relies on employers allowing employees to work on schedules like this or allowing workers to pick a schedule that best suits their individual needs. This requires employers to set new standards for determining the quality of work produced instead of focusing on when and how it’s produced.

Q. Do you think the recent shift from full-time on-site work to freelancing has created better results?

Absolutely! Freelancing allows workers to finally achieve the work/life balance sought for so long. Therefore, people work harder, more effectively, and achieve greater results because they are afforded the flexibility to work when they can be most efficient.

The employers win, too. I have a friend that owns a company that handles $40 million worth of ad spend with one employee and 15 freelancers.

Other employers are finding this as well. In April of 2021, Gartner published a study that stated, “32% of organizations are replacing full-time employees with contingent workers as a cost-saving measure.” So, if you are a business owner who hasn’t embraced this new workforce, what’s stopping you?
