Work Anywhere, Live Anywhere

REMOTE RENEGADES DO THE WORK THEY LOVE, WHERE THEY LOVE TO DO IT. THEY’RE CREATIVE, ADAPTABLE, AND FREE-SPIRITED. CUBICLES? NUH-UH. THEY BRING THE OUTDOORS IN, WITH HOME OFFICES THAT INSPIRE ADVENTURE IN LIFE AND WORK.

It started as a blog about remote work. Now, the creative leash has been cut and ideas are running wild and free. You’ll not only find inspiration and guidance to help you embark on the nomadic journey that is modern-day freelancing and remote work; you’ll also find unique decor for your home office, handmade and curated by Rikki Ayers, Alpha Renegade, writer and trash-to-treasure-maker.

FREEWHEELER & ALPHA RENEGADE

Remote Renegades was created by Rikki Ayers—who has been freelance writing part-time since 2007 and working remotely full-time since 2016—to help more creative types find a better way to balance their work with their adventure aspirations. She found it hard to be creative and motivated from 9-5, Monday-Friday, stuck in an office with unhappy, overworked people, and set out to stretch the boundaries of work-life.

WHAT THE HECK IS UPCYCLING?

Essentially, it’s reusing something that would end up in recycling or a landfill. In our world of use-it-once-and-toss-it, countries are having trouble keeping up with their recycling. Lots of what we think gets recycled just ends up in the garbage. Upcycling is another way to give used things new life.

As a way to burn steam and get away from her screen, Rikki began upcycling furniture about five years ago. That quickly snowballed into making soap and lip balm and other homemade body products, making candles using local beeswax, all while she was learning graphic design and copywriting. Now, all of these creative endeavours are blended together with a true appreciation and care for nature in Remote Renegades.
