With the end of the summer racing I’ve been on my travels recently. I’ve skipped a few days, but on bigger days I’ve still needed to do some work on key markets.
Therein comes the problem of how and where. Whether you are staying with friends or in a hotel you also need to have a back up plan, just in case. My solution is to use coffee as my back up plan.
Where ever you are, there is usually a coffee or snack shop somewhere nearby. I carry an app on my iPhone to tell me how near I am to a location that offers internet access. When I arrive at a destination I quickly check how far away the back up location is and what sort of connection they have.
On Saturday I was busy trading away when BOOOOOM all the power went at my current location. I immediately switched to my iPad and mobile broadband connection, but for some strange reason that was working either. So backup three was in motion. I headed around the corner to Starbucks when I ordered a coffee and started up again. Starbucks saves the day!
So, there you have it, stay caffeinated!
