The holiday season fast approaching – and perhaps for some it’s already here. Are you planning any trips away – will you be travelling and working during your holiday vacation?
You know… just because you’re on vacation or travelling – doesn’t necessarily mean that your work stops during the holiday season too – does it (especially for us small business owners and entrepreneurs)?
What’s in-store for you:
In this episode we’ll be discussing… “Working While Travelling”
More specifically – we thought we would share our thoughts and
views, along with our challenges and solutions – about planning ahead and the key things you need to consider to enable productive work while you’re travelling.
You see – Lorie and I like to travel (a lot) – so we built our business and designed our lifestyle in a way that provided us the ability to work and travel at the same time – pretty cool right?
I’m sure there are many others that do this as well.
So with holiday travel just around the corner – now seemed to be the perfect time to share, because a lot of people will be travelling to visit family & friends, or potentially flying to far off places for extended vacations too (we hope that’s the case for you).
If you are… let’s get you prepared shall we?

but in having new eyes.” ~ Marcel Proust
For Lorie this quote speaks volumes… the short version (she can be kind of long winded – shhh – don’t tell her I said that) –
You don’t have to travel far to see something new. If you’re open minded & not walking around with blinders on – then there’s more chances of see something different each and everyday (even if you travel the very same path).
For me… as much as I like what Lorie had to say – I totally see it as something different. And if you want my take on this quote… then you’re going to have listen to this episode of the podcast.
