Shadow work is when people are working from home to earn a living, as opposed to in the evenings.

In a lot of cases, this is done to pay bills or for financial planning purposes. 

Shadow work can also be used for other purposes.

It’s also a great opportunity to connect with people who are otherwise out of contact.
