It is hard to travel and work simultaneously. This is impossible and can lead to both work and travel being difficult. Your brain can be in many places simultaneously, which is why it rarely works well.
What can you do to make it work? What can you do to build a business even though you travel a lot? Here are five ways to get started.
It is not something you want to be having trouble with images, font sizes, or contact forms while on the move. To make your trip more enjoyable, do as much as you can before you go. Your website should be launched at least six months prior to your departure. This will allow you to do all the work necessary before you embark on your trip. Although your website may not be perfect, there will always be issues. However, it will make your life easier if you do most of the work before you leave.
The problem isn’t in not having enough time… it’s in prioritizing your time.
To-do lists are often created by people to help them manage their work. Although a list can help you organize your purchases, it’s not the best way of organizing your work. The result is that we make things simpler at the beginning while saving the most difficult for the end. It’s human nature.
Instead, create a schedule to organize your work. You can travel and write in the morning, then go exploring until noon, work on emails, and then have dinner. Even when you’re traveling, it is possible to do group work for several days. You write on Mondays and market on Tuesdays. You edit your writing on Tuesdays. You write your newsletter on Wednesdays and reply to emails. You blog on Thursdays and then send your newsletter out.
You can also work on a weekend, which will allow you to focus and not be distracted by others because nobody is working.
It is the best way to grow your business. This will allow you to grow faster and help you recover your investment faster.
It doesn’t matter how big you start. A small investment such as a unique design that catches the attention of website visitors can make a big difference.
Hire full-time employees when you begin to earn some money. If you have only a part-time employee, it will not be enough to get your website up and running.
You cannot do it all. You’re not Superman. If you want to reach seven figures, you will need to have help. Nobody can do it all. As the owner, your role is to market the business and manage it. You don’t have to worry about the code problems, blogging, finding images or answering emails. These are not your primary functions. You can hire someone else to do it.
It is easy to meet creative people when you travel internationally. You are always in the same city. This is a great opportunity to meet influential people in many fields. Your network is only as strong and diverse as you are. The more diverse your network is, the better your business will be. It can be very beneficial to overcome the geographical barrier and go to another city to collaborate.
Send an email to someone you really like and let them know that you are interested in them. Participate in conferences. There are many “creative” Facebook groups. You can join them anywhere you are and attend their events.
