Four No-Brainer Essentials To Make Living and Working Anywhere in the World Easier Than You Thought Susan L Reid
Lots of people dream about being able to
live or work anywhere in the world.
Few do. In all the years Iíve been helping women become home-based business owners, Iím always amazed at just how many of them strap themselves down to one location, once they get their business running. This always surprises me. Especially when one of their main reasons for becoming a home-based business owner in the first place was to have greater flexibility.
At one end of my client-scale are the home-based moms who want the flexibility of being able to move their work to the beach home so they can be with their children and keep their business running, too. On the other end are the adventuresome women who dream of being able to conduct business while living in or traveling to exotic places. Both sets of women seem to think that itís just too much trouble to get their business ready for travel.
Well, Iím here to tell you nothing can be farther from the truth.
Owning a small business is not just another job. It's a totally different lifestyle. As long as location is not important to your business, these 4 no-brainer essentials will quickly and easily make your business ready for you to live or work anywhere in the world.
Four No-brainer Essentials Necessary for World Travel and Living
1. Buy a wireless laptop. One that is able to meet all your business needs. Then search on Goggle for the many locations of Wifi hotspots around the world.
2. Purchase power plug adaptors. Go on now. Spurge and get all nine of them so you can plug in your laptop wherever you go.
3. Get a PayPal account and Internet banking. This way, your clients can pay you and you can pay your bills.
4. Open a free Skype account for Internet phoning. Then have all your clients sign-up for Skype, too. That way everyone can talk to each other for free.
I know, first hand, what itís like to live and do business from many places in the world. Iíve found Internet connections to be nearly everywhere. With just these four no-brainer essential steps, you can stop being a home-based business owner that's strapped to home, and start increasing your flexibility and options. Youíll be surprised what a change of scenery will do for your creativity and business productivity.
