How to work from anywhere

It's been almost 4 years since I quitted my corporate job and I wanted to travel and work around the world. At that time anywhere with wifi seem a much better option than my office.

During this time, I've build a startup, raised capital, mentored and helped other founders and my biggest tool has been my brain, my laptop and wifi and of course lots of coffee. Naturally it comes to a time that I want to stabilize and get my office in one place, so it's about time to share my tips and tricks

So you want to work remotely?

First things first, it is not as glamours as you might be thinking. You can be on a trip and be with other people and they are touristing around going to all the cool places and you will be on your laptop, taking calls, your friends are shopping? you run to nearest cafe.

You dream of a view of working from a pool, well I tried that multiple times and you have to be careful because you laptop overheats and in the end you have to pick pool or work? Life will be a constant trade off time or money, without work no money, without money no fun, without time doesn't matter how much money you have because well you won't enjoy it. So how to balance it all or how to integrate it all will be a topic for another day.

What do you need?

  • A brain (Hint if you are reading this, you can check this one out)
  • A good fast laptop
  • Great wifi connection
Where to work from?
You can start by going to coffeshops but it really depens where you are. If you are traveling trhough Europe some pretty cafes might not have wifi, espresso bars in Italy are mostly standing. If you are traveling in Latin America

Think of it as the airbnb for co-works.

Or you can do what I'm doing these days: I'm using an app called Get Croissant and it's my favorite latest find. I honestly don't know how I haven't found this before.

I don't use it everyday but it's the best thing that has been helping me stay focused.

You can pay as little as 3.9 an hour, less than an Starbucks coffee and they count only for the minutes you are there, not a minute more not a min less. If you haven't finished your hours you can use them the next month.

In exchange, you get access to high speed internet, and some coworkings have unlimited coffee and tea. It's super easy to use, you can hold a spot in advance or book a coworking space, meeting room. And my favorite part for anyone it has international presence too. when you have a meeting, lunch you can just see which coworking space is closest and
