When traveling the world with the Digital Nomad Life Style, you learn that there are a few critical consistencies wherever you end up. By doing so, your office can be anywhere and look like its your office when speaking to your clients.
1. A Good Laptop
As you travel, your livelihood will depend on you getting the work done in the virtual world. If your laptop or mac is inconstant with its functionality, you could be in big trouble when trying to get your work done. Unless you are within the graphic design field or need high tier processing power for a program, there are several laptops you can choose from. You could also be even more dynamic depending on your career and choose the route of getting a tablet or ipad to connect with your clients.
2. Consistent Internet
Good internet has the potential to make or break the consistency of your work in the digital work while you travel the real world. There are several wifi extenders, adapters, hotspots and even local internet, but they may not all be reliable. I suggest that you always have a reliable source of internet and a backup plan if something goes south. Your first option would probably be a hotspot, which can be purchased from any major internet provider. This is usually different than using your cell phone as a hotspot and often has a reoccurring payment plan to pay for the data you use. Although this can be pricy, if you’re in an area that has poor internet, this can be a life saver. The second positive option to have on you is a good usb wifi adapter. By having one of these, it’ll help boost your signal if there is local wifi.
3. A Comfortable Work Space
This can be very open-ended based on what you need to work with and what you want achieve. This can be a local coffee shop, a workspace within a hotel or even the place you are staying. Living the digital nomad lifestyle gives you those flexible options on where works best for you. The bottom line is living this lifestyle has potential to enjoy the world but having these consistencies will make sure you can continue to enjoy it.
