But, all you can do is try to work it out if traveling is what you want to do, and work is getting in the way.

Always Have Your Tech With You

The first thing that we’re going to say is that you need to always have your tech with you, and always be connected to the internet.

You have to be able to stay connected to the business, except for times when you have made it clear that you will not be available.

All other times though you need to be reachable, so if you can guarantee that this is going to happen, and your job allows you to work remotely, we don’t see why this would be a problem.

However, if you are someone who is not great at remembering to bring your tech with you, then this might not be the best option for you.

At the very least you’re going to need your phone seeing as you can do most things on that anyway.

Protect Your Tech At All Costs

It’s also imperative that if you are traveling and using public internet connections that you are protecting your tech at all costs.

You never know what kind of virus is lurking under the surface, or who is waiting to break into a network that they do not recognize.

It might sound hard to believe, but we’re sure you’re aware cybercrime is a huge issue right now, so it’s not something that should be messed with.

The best thing that you can do is get a VPN for your devices and use encryptions and firewalls as well on top of this.

You might be sitting there thinking what does vpn mean if you’ve never heard of it.

It stands for virtual private network and is a tool that is used in security. It keeps your device safe by concealing who you are.

How Can You Work And Travel At The Same Time

Take Into Account Various Time Zones

If you are going to be working abroad in a different time zone, then you have to be willing to take into account the time zone where your office is based.

This might mean that you are up at weird times of night in certain places, but that’s a sacrifice you’re just going to have to make.

Or, your company might be happy for you to work in whatever time zone you are in, as long as you are completing the work that you are supposed to when you’re supposed to be doing it.

The thing with time zones though is that if you are in a different one, it can be hard to get in touch with people when you need to.

Keep that in mind and work around it the best that you can.

Keep In Touch With Other Workers

Speaking of keeping in touch with other workers, you need to ensure that you are touching base regularly to ensure that you’re all on the same page.

It can be a little more difficult when someone isn’t around that usually is, but as long as you dedicate yourself to being available, it shouldn’t be too tough.

There are lots of companies that thrive with remote workers, so yours can too as long as everyone involved is putting their best foot forward.

Ideally, you want to be in a meeting with the team once per week, also receiving and providing regular updates during that time.
