WFH Lessons From Hamilton: An American Musical
WFH Lessons Act 1: Dont’ just work, Werk!
Hamilton literally started from the bottom and (looooong story short) he hustled his way into American History. We don’t promise such lofty results but there’s a lesson to be learned here. Times are tough right now but the best thing you can do is invest in yourself! Hamilton was a ferocious reader and read everything he could get his hands on. SO INVEST IN YO SELF! Free certifications are available online from tech giants such Google. Courses like Search Display Ads, Analytics, G-Suite are impressive to have on your resume! Did we mention these certifications are free? You can knock out a certification every two weeks. Just make sure to take notes as you study to make sure you pass on the first attempt. Tip the balance in your favor and invest in yourself.

WFH Lessons Act 2: Take a Break!
“Why are you writing like you’re running out of time?”
Time management is a soft skill that’s seriously underappreciated. Hamilton’s work ethic was legendary but even America’s Founding Father’s needed some time off. The lines between work and home are blurred with WFH. We’re living in tough times so go easy on yourself. Listen to the Hamilton Soundtrack on Youtube (David, our digital marketer, lives by this soundtrack). Or take some time off social media (seriously, it’s a nice to do).
WFH Lessons Act 3: Did we mention investing in yourself?
“The ten-dollar founding father without a father
Got a lot farther by working a lot harder
By being a lot smarter
By being a self-starter
By fourteen, they placed him in charge of a trading charter…”
Yes, it’s a bit corny. But Hamilton is the story of a self-starter and the person he relied on the most was himself (and possibly Eliza Schuyler). You’re the best resource you have and a little investment in yourself will go a long way! A little ambition, a little internet savvy and you’ve got the beginning of a winning recipe. We can’t promise you’ll have a Tony Award winning Broadway Musical named after you but with us, we’ll work non-stop for your Route to success!
Bonus Lesson 4: Avoid Aaron Burr. And Colonial era pistol duels.
