In this blog, we share our top 5 tips on how to work while travelling, which is a huge consideration for many MLM business owners as they can be so flexible.
Our first bit of advice is to plan ahead. If you need to update anything that requires an internet connection, then check with your hotels in advance to see if they offer it! If they don’t, check any local bars of restaurants, shopping malls are usually your best bet. And if you’re travelling abroad, check with your phone provider to see whether your data plan can be used or what deals they can offer from roaming.
Remember the time difference! Just last month Pamtree ventured to the other side of the world. Therefore, we were experiencing a 7-8 hour time difference from the UK. This can become extremely problematic if you’re trying to get things done and organise check in’s with busy team members or prospects. Our advice would be to discuss this with all your team before you leave and then set times to catch up which are convenient for both of you.
Do not call your team! If you’re abroad and your phone contract doesn’t include the country you’re visiting within your calls, then don’t call! This is an easy way to rack up a £1,000+ bill! Simply, use email or Wifi calls using WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger. But if you’re going to use any internet-based calling apps then make sure you’re connected to Wifi and you’re not using your 4G! That’s another easy way to get a £1,000+ phone bill!
If you’re using any transportation that’s longer than half an hour and can allow you to whip out your phone or laptop, do it! Start getting some work done. This can be while waiting for a plane, train, taxi or even a boat! Just make sure that you feel safe enough to get out any equipment that’s expensive, like laptops and mobile phones, not all countries are as safe as the UK!
Take a battery pack that’s fully charged. I’m not sure if you can get these for laptops, but you certainly can for your phone/tablet. It means you can work on from your phone while travelling and have the comfort of knowing that as soon as it dies, you can fully charge it again. Little things like these just allow you to get those small tasks completed and still enjoy your trip of a lifetime!
