Hello all! Our Saturday morning shout-outs highlight a post/article/book/other that I’ve come across lately that deserves exactly that: a ‘shout-out.’ The goal here is to hopefully introduce my readers to other authors or bloggers that have had an impact on me, my writing, and my life.


This week’s shout-out is: Adding 20 minutes to your commute is like getting a 19% pay cut by Jane Burnett at


With a seemingly constant rise in freelancing and ‘work from home’ gigs, I think we inherently understand that there must be benefits to such a job. In this article, some of those benefits are quantified. As Jane discusses, a 20-minute commute has the same effect on job satisfaction as a 19% pay cut would (that’s a negative, for those keeping track). The article goes on to uncover the reasons why a commute produces those negative feelings, however, us 20 minute-plus commuters don’t have to feel completely negative. There’s a silver lining to commuting situations, and even some suggestions that help to yield more positive job satisfaction rates.


I really enjoyed getting through this quick article and took a couple of solid suggestions from it as well. Click on over to see the full details, it could lead to more smiles during the regular 9-5!
