My Mission: The business of life starts at home.

Home Working Henry exists to build a community around home working, remote working and entrepreneurship.

This is my Mission: 

  • Create great content that helps people find jobs working from home.
  • Build a community that shares our beliefs and spreads our values.
  • Highlight issues around housing that damage communities, businesses and the economy.
  • Help our community launch businesses and live a life that thrives.

My Beliefs

Choosing how and when we work improves work-life balance, integration, and family life and brings people back to communities.

Homeworking employees are productive and engaged and benefit both businesses and local communities.

Housing is a fundamental human right and an entire generation across the English-speaking world has been let down.

Entrepreneurship is a fantastic avenue to gain work-life independence.

About Me

My name is Joseph Henry and I am the founder of Home Working Henry. A blog and business focused on delivering on our mission and completing my quests.

My career has spanned politics, recruitment, insurance and retail. Originally from southern England near London I now live in one of the world's greatest places the region of Galloway in Scotland.

My Quest & Side Quests

My main quest is of course raising and providing for my family.

My main professional Quest is building a business that provides home and remote workers with the content and tools they need to make working from home a success.

I, however, have a range of side quests that I have set myself that I would like to complete. 

Why have I set myself missions and questions?

Well, this is to ensure that I am working towards my goals and not just working. What I am going to do is each month write an update post as I complete a side quest. This way, on an ad-hoc basis I will
