Why I quit my job to work from home
My family and I had no choice but to get out of our jobs to get the energy we need, says energy assistance co-founder, Natalie Nelis.
“The idea of getting paid for something I am doing from home was unthinkable, but I was lucky enough to get a job with an affordable electricity plan and a good contract.”
Neles has been working in the energy sector for the past 10 years.
The 26-year-old originally joined the firm to help manage the transition from her previous role as a corporate lawyer to becoming a full-time energy assistance employee.
“There are a lot of companies who are trying to help you out, but the reality is you are not in a position to make that decision on your own,” she said.
“You have to be offered something.”
For many people the transition to the energy market is not an easy one.
Many people find it difficult to find a job that will enable them to stay on top of their bills and keep up with energy bills.
They often end up cutting back on activities they enjoy, such as travelling, working out and spending time with family and friends.
While the transition can be stressful for people, Nels said it can also be very rewarding.
“In the energy economy, people are really working hard to stay connected to their communities, to keep their home powered and to save for a long-term future,” she explained.
“We have seen the transformation of energy markets over the past few years, and the changes are starting to impact everyday people.”
She said she has seen many people come out of the energy assistance market, including former students and people who were employed, “because they can’t afford to keep the lights on”.
But Nelas said she would not recommend leaving the energy industry for any other reason than the sheer challenge of being able to live off-grid.
“It is a very unique position and it can be very stressful,” she added.
She is not alone in her enthusiasm for the energy-saving opportunities the energy assist industry offers. “
As a result, it is much harder to move on to the next level.”

Neli has spoken at international energy industry conferences around the world, and has even received a call from a potential employer.
“I was so excited when I heard it was an opportunity, but then I heard from my company and they were like, ‘You have two months to make this decision’,” she said, adding she would be happy to talk to them again if they are still interested in the position.
She said the energy aid industry has also been helping her in the last few years by helping her find the right fit for her career, and by providing financial support.
“Being an energy assistance worker is incredibly rewarding and rewarding to be in,” she told MTV News.
“But it can definitely be a struggle.”
Nellis has been fortunate to have been able to transition to working from home, and she said that, although the transition is not a smooth one, it has helped her with her financial needs.
“What I have found is that being an energy assist worker has been great,” she admitted.
“Because I am not the kind of person to be too picky, I have managed to save up on energy bills and also on rent and utilities.”
The experience has also helped Nelises learn more about the energy markets.
“A lot of people get stuck in the middle of things, and it takes a lot to get things moving,” she pointed out.
“That is why we need to be looking for solutions, and there is nothing worse than someone that has to find themselves in that position.”
Nels said her company is now working with other energy assistance providers to find out how to best support energy assist workers.
“Energy assistance is a great thing to do because it brings people together, it helps to connect people, and I think it is great for people,” she concluded.
