Here are some reasons why you should join the community of Techies who are taking the leap to doing multiple jobs. My personal motivation was that I had no interest in socializing at office, so I used to decline all non-productive meetings . When the pandemic happened, I actually got disillusioned at the company I was working at since people started asking for ‘requests’ for the sake of it. When, I started doing some house chores in my free time, my manager who was tracking my productivity using some software – fired me. This was devastating since I used to output 2x of the work requirements. I decided to use this to my advantage, built a “remote logger” and I plugged in a freelancer from India to manage my ‘online activity’ in my new job. The freelancer I hired was good at the job, so I started delegating a bit of the work I didn’t want to do – now I was left with some good 25 hrs.

Remote Logger - A Lateral Work Hardware

Our inhouse LateralWork Unit technology connects the freelancers by sending the keyboard, mouse and video signals over the internet and creatingan interface for them to work remotely. With no software or digit foot print on the work laptop, this seem to be best way to remote in a freelancer.

Lateral Work Remote Logger is an inhouse developed hardware solution with its own custom software . It is plug and play and does not require any driver installation . The data transmitted instantly thanks to high end configuration of the hardware and dedicated server and domain.

Hiring a Freelancer

Hiring a freelancer can make your life much easier but is not necessary. Most people are able-willing to do the extra hours for the 2nd job. Your run a bit risk of having one work laptop idle for extended hours of time which can be a red-flag for companies who monitor laptops. A good freelancer with the right skills can be hired for around $1000 a month and can carry 50-80% of the total workload. To do 3 or more jobs, freelancers and delegation are necessary


Plenty of hires or project are available. Would take a bit more digging to get someone to commit to your hours. Highly specialized skills are hard to find – not impossible. Great for one off projects.
