Martina Martian: Artist & Creative

“My top tip for working while traveling is to always figure out how many hours you need in the week to get your work done but be flexible about when those hours are! Leave room for spontaneity and new plans- we are lucky not to have to stick to a schedule.” –  @martinamartian & martinamartian.com

 

Lauren Meeker: Founder, Photographer & Content Creator

“Go slowly – spend at least one month in each place and bounce around less. When you have the freedom to be working from anywhere in the world, you can sometimes feel like you need to be everywhere at once, seeing everything and going everywhere, always taking full advantage of this incredible opportunity. But making a conscious effort to spend at least a month in each place you travel will give you enough time to get into a healthy routine in each location, and help you stay productive while working around the world.” – @splorinlauren & voyageandventure.com

Carrie Mitchell: Writer, Author & Creative

“Invest in a digital work management platform (like Bonsai) and apps that can help you organize and stick to your project timelines while you are traveling. Having reminders and everything in one place is a lifesaver.” – @carrieamitchell

 

Meesen Brown

Meesen Brown: Founder & CEO

“When I started working while traveling, I quickly learnt the key for my productivity is being prepared, before I arrive. This means booking an apartment that has home comforts, in a safe area, finding a coworking space with good community, and booking fitness classes or finding a running route. Doing these in advance allow me to actually enjoy the new city I’m in, and get my work done. Plus it saves me tons of time and headaches.” – @meesenb & gobehere.com

“If you’d like to travel while making a full-time income, I recommend you learn well paying marketing skills. Those skills will help you land high-ticket clients who are happy to pay for your services. I’ve scaled my online business this way for 2 years and have been able to make a comfortable full-time income out of it. There are tons of online courses which help you fast track the above process for you. Enrol in one, work hard to implement your knowledge and know that the remote work lifestyle really is possible!” – @i_am_roota

Cassy Martinez: Entrepreneur & Freelancer

“As a digital freelancer and entrepreneur, I work on projects from anywhere in the world with good wifi. When I’m on the road, one of my favorite things to do in is Google “Best wifi cafes in _____.” Each day, I pack up my backpack, hit up a local cafe and bang out a couple hours of quality work, rewarding myself with a taste of the city afterward. Exploring each new destination and switching up work environments keeps me stimulated and inspired to bring forth my best work and tackle projects that I had put on hold previously.” – @cassyymartinez, @weareladylab & weareladylab.com
