Doing business the new-fashioned way--anytime and anywhere
Some personal news, I’m married! You can call me Mrs. Jessica Sabet as soon as I fill out all my paperwork to change my last name legally (there must be an app for that). It was a magical weekend and I am so excited to finally be married. Months and months of planning called for a mini-moon and I’m actually sipping my pina colada basking in the Mexican sun while typing this blog. Yes, even when I am out of the country on vacation, a girl still has to hustle (emails don't write themselves)!
When you’re an entrepreneur, you’re never truly disconnected. I don’t like bringing a whole laptop though, and I always imagine I won’t actually work that much while I’m gone, and bringing my tablet really feels a little less like work.
The connection is fab, and luckily I can keep it in my purse, so working on the plane or sending a quick email is made easier by having it close at hand.
I use the ZAGG wireless bluetooth keyboard both as a case and keyboard, because it’s super easy to use. The keys have backlighting, and it’s the first I’ve used that actually feels like I’m typing on a real keyboard and not something flimsy and bendy. I can just pop it open, type quickly, and put it away. Plus, the battery life is pretty amazing, you can use it for up to two years, since it doesn’t drain your tablet’s charge. And conveniently, the keyboard automatically goes into sleep mode to save the battery’s charge after a few minutes of non-use.
I also make sure I have my phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot just in case! You never know if you pay extra for Wi-Fi or if that cute little cafe you’re at will have Wi-Fi, or just really slow or unreliable connections. I also try to have noise-cancelling headphones, so that I can work without distractions.
Do you still do work when you go on vacation? How do you get things done?
