The list of companies allowing for work-from-home — some of them saying remote work will be forever — continues to grow. Additionally, a record number of new business applications were filed in the U.S. in 2020, peaking at nearly 1.6 million during the third quarter (nearly double the number in 2019) according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Many of those small business applicants were people looking to fire up a self-employment side-gig from home.
