Here’s some things to think about for road trips where you must stay connected to conduct some business whether trading or other. I’ll address all of these and more in future posts. Most of the tips will apply whether you are taking just a short trip or extended life style change. Feel free to add your posts with your suggestions and experiences.
1. Laptop backup and restoration.
Quickly and easily get back up and running if a hard drive crashes or laptop lost/stolen. OK, relatively quickly and easily. The key is to have a plan and be prepared.
2. Telephone and email communication
Have a Skype account including a local Skype number and online email access. Carry a quad band, unlocked cell.
3. Small, lightweight and reliable equipment.
Every ounce counts! Leave the seven pound, multi-media laptop with the 17” screen at home. Equipment and travel gear for relatively light weight and convenient travel.
4. Time and task management for the road warrior.
Get more done in less time so you can actually enjoy the trip!
5. Don’t forget why you left home.
There’s a reason you left home and it shouldn’t have been to sit in the condo or hotel room and day trade. Expand your horizons. Have fun, meet new people, have new challenges.
