    Be nice if I used a semicolon in-- I write about most any subject; humanitarian issues take a front seat for me. Not a good resume statement with such a mistake, but one which is often made.

    Hello everyone! I am a multilingual and hands-on contract consultant within the communications technology, information technology, security, energy, consumer electronics, broadcast communications, telecommunications, hospitality, and government sectors. I specialize in opening new markets for new companies with new products, system solutions and services and turn-around situations. My usual contracts are three to six months but that can vary. Essentially what I do is the same thing you would expect from a Senior Executive in Sales, Marketing, Business Development and/or Operations to do when opening a new market or territory but on a contract basis as opposed to standard employment.

    I write about most any subject, humanitarian issues take a front seat with me. What I don't know, I research and am quite successful at doing so to a certain extent. Of course, some subjects require an expertise far above mine, but I can take what I'm given and humanize it if the subject matter is right.

    This is a great out-of-the-box addition! Kudos @Sandra Smith!

    My personal motto is, "Not your ordinary engineer," and I live and breathe it everyday by how I solve problems, communicate, and approach work.

    I'm an electrical engineer in the electric utility industry with a knack for making technical concepts digestible to people from all experience and knowledge levels. I have created and published newsletters for multiple audiences in both volunteer and professional positions. I am serving as a chair and member for multiple work groups in the Power System Relaying Committee (PSRC), a technical committee under IEEE producing standards and technical papers. Last year, as the lead author on a team, I published a paper related to how we train young engineers in my field.

    Let's look at your projects together!

    No matter what I am doing, I look to add VALUE and improve up to 70%. I am driven by RESULTS.

    By day, I've been a BA for over 15 years, contracting the last 5 years. I Analyze Businesses, leveraging existing culture, tools and experts to reveal, translate and drive RESULTS. I adapt to add VALUE, no matter what project or domain.

    By night, I blog or help others write their résumés, beBee and LinkedIn profiles, and develop career strategies. Nobody likes selling themselves. Most don’t know how. I got my last job with one tweak to my profile.

    In case anyone wants to know what happens when someone clicks on the APPLY button for a service that you offer, they will receive a message window pop-up to write you a message and it will appear in your beBee inbox. So the next time you see a message notification, it might be for some new work!

    #12 Hi Alexa,

    Thanks for the kind words. I still have to stop myself from grabbing my phone first thing in the morning, so I know how you feel. That’s fantastic about the exercise; it’s a great first step!

    #11 Hi Jared,

    Thanks for the kind welcome message and sharing my posts in so many hives. Being a newbee, I didn’t even know that some of them existed. I’ll be checking them all out.

    I’ve just had a look at Twilight and I wish I came across it before, as I would have tested it and mentioned it in my article.

    I think sleep is a work in progress for most of us :)

    A huge thank you again for taking the time to read my article and for sharing it.

    That first grab for the phone/laptop in the morning is one I KNOW is bad for me, but I still do it. At least I've started pulling myself away for near-daily exercise. Great post, Karan.

    Hi Karan,

    Great first post on beBee. Welcome!
    First things first, for welcomes, I'm sharing in the beBee Interviews and Introductions hive.

    I love life hacks! There's even a hive for that. Lots of great tips here...

    For posture, I'm sharing to the Egoscue Method hive. I often get back pain from sitting at a desk all day. You might check it out. Covers the exercise and HIIT aspects to, hopefully.

    For "me-me" time, have you heard of the Miracle Morning? Sharing there too. Gratitude and reflection are so key. Dang, could share in the Tony Robbins hive too!

    I'm still working on sleep. But the blue light helps. f.lux seems similar to an app I've been using called Twilight.

    Great stuff! Sorry for the delay. Thank you for sharing all this!

    #3 Hi @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, it does take a deliberate daily effort to do non-business related things that make a difference to my health. I can only imagine the challenges that your husband faces managing his IT Consulting Company.

    It’s great news that he can take holidays more often. A break can do wonders for recharging the batteries. Thank goodness for remote working and competent employees :). Yay, to him exercising at his home office! Please let me know how he gets on using f.lux.

    #2 Hi Gerald, yes, finding our optimal posture is necessary, especially when working long hours. As for Jacob, sleeping on a rock pillow sounds very uncomfortable indeed :)
    Karan Johnson
    20/01/2017 #5 Karan Johnson
    Hi @Deb 🐝 Helfrich you’re so right about the ease that bad habits can be created. I must admit that I worked from my bed or sofa when I started freelancing. I think I was slightly rebelling against anything desk-related, as I spent years sitting in an office :).

    Neck strain was a sure-fire sign that I needed to change my ways.

    Like you, I now have a simple set-up (a desk and chair) that is much more ergonomic. So yes, good posture is absolutely a big part in keeping ourselves well when working from home.

    Great tips @Karan Johnson. I think it's cool that you recognized what is important and works for you in order to be highly functional without getting ill or having a break down! Because my husband runs his own IT Consulting Co. he doesn't have a choice many times with regards to determining good times to not be on his PC. I will have to relate to him about f.lux you wrote of above, that may help him when he has to be online late at night. He used to take small vacations every 2-3 years but now he can go and not worry because he can work remotely if an issue comes up and he's trained his employees to do much more than they were doing when hired. He related to me he's been taking breaks in his office and doing exercises (his home office, that is). Thanks for this!

    #1 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich If I understand what you are saying; I am an agreement..."practicing" optimal static and dynamic posture/movement through spacetime is so very vital for the ultimate ride of a lifetime; and it doesn't require any special "functional furniture"...Jacob hurt his his leg after climbing a ladder to heaven and getting ina scuffle with an angel/velvet rope bouncer.
    All because instead of sleeping flat on the ground, he felt he had to rest his head on a "rock pillow"...a most unnatural sleeping position for proper oxygenation and avoiding disruptive episodes of apnea.

    Wellness while freelancing is crucial, @Karan Johnson, because it can be so easy to work in an unstructured manner and create bad habits.

    Posture is a big thing to pay attention to, and it can be easy to use regular relaxing furniture with all our smart devices, but I know I am more focused and productive when I practice structural integrity while working. I have a completely bespoke set-up that almost guarantees good posture.

    It is a bunch of random bits of furniture, but they are all at the appropriate heights to enable me to not force myself into strange contortionist positions. That is a very crucial aspect of wellness while working from home.
