The Secret To Having Freedom And Working Full Time

Did you know that it was possible to have freedom, to fly off on a plane tomorrow at a moment’s notice, to set up in an apartment in Paris and work all day from a cafe and then the next week jet off to Hong Kong and spend your days working from rooftop bars? With the increasing advancements of technology and the fact that more and more companies are offering flexible working, if you have a job where you can work remotely and don’t have to be in the office from 9-5, Monday to Friday, then there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy travelling at the same time as working.

In fact, it doesn’t even mean just working in general; if you want to, you could travel while running a business. While it’s essential to take breaks and to switch off every now and again and go on holiday and relax, it’s also great to have the opportunity to be able to work from anywhere. You have the tools to be accessible if you need to be and to essentially live life as you normally would, doing your regular working hours but just somewhere else with different places to explore in the evenings and weekends. If you wanted to you could work from the beach though or separate the holiday activities – the choice really is yours which means what you’re really benefiting from is freedom.

Thanks to the internet, you can now schedule work you have done in the middle of the night to publish during the day. For example, if it’s social media posts, you need to send out at a particular time, then there are plenty of tools you can use to do this. Schedule them for a whole week, and then you don’t have to worry about them again. This isn’t just valuable in case you’re busy, but in case you’re having issues with the time difference and don’t fancy setting the alarm for 3 am. Or perhaps you’re having problems with an internet connection, then when you do have a good one, get as much done as you can, and then you don’t have to worry about it later. It’s not only for social media posts this works for but you can schedule emails too and blog posts to be published. There’s no need to do anything in real-time anymore.

It also doesn’t matter where you are in the world; you’ll still be able to communicate with whoever you need to. We have the obvious emails, telephones, video calls and instant messaging, but now it’s also becoming increasingly popular to hire a virtual assistant. Doing this can not only make your life so much easier as if you need to be, you could be in contact with them from 30,000 feet in the air, but it just means that they could be anywhere in the world too, you don’t even have to meet. But this way of working is proving very popular and more and more people are doing it. Check out some of the virtual PA agencies to find out more as there are loads of people all over the world looking to do just the same as you – work remotely, from wherever you want so it’s a win-win for all. This also means if you’re in a job you’re not keen on and it doesn’t allow you to travel, then sign yourself up as a virtual assistant. This will give you the freedom you’re after, and there is a demand for it, so sign up.

If you want total freedom, then you don’t even need to plan where you’re staying or when you’re going. You’re still going to be working so no need to tell any clients. If you feel like going off tomorrow then have a look for a last minute flight, check online for an affordable studio apartment for rent with a good internet connection then you’re good to go. You don’t have to stay in one place either if you want to move around all year then go for it. If you have kids and just want to spend the summer somewhere new, then why not? Get yourself somewhere with a pool, and you can sit and work while they play and enjoy their summer. Adding joy and getting a balance is what life’s all about, so take advantage of the tools, the jobs and the opportunities we have available now so you can truly make the most out of life.
