“Running a Business While Traveling: Essential Tips for Success”

Running a business while traveling can be an exciting and rewarding experience, but it can also be challenging. Here are some tips for managing your business while on the go:

  1. Use Cloud-Based Services: Cloud-based services like Google Drive, Dropbox, Boards, and Trello can help you keep track of your work while you’re on the move. You can access your files, notes, and tasks from anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection. I use all of these and highly recommend them.
  2. Plan Ahead: Before you leave for your trip, make sure you have a plan in place for how you’ll manage your business while you’re away. Set up automatic email responses, delegate tasks to your team members, and create a schedule for when you’ll check in on your work.
  3. Stay Connected: Stay connected with your team and clients using video conferencing tools like Zoom or Skype. This will allow you to have virtual meetings and check-ins while you’re away.
  4. Use Social Media: Use social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn to keep in touch with your clients and customers. You can use these platforms to post updates about your business and interact with your followers.
  5. Have a Reliable Internet Connection: A reliable internet connection is essential when running a business while traveling. Make sure you research your destination beforehand to ensure you have access to reliable internet service.
  6. Use a Virtual Assistant: Consider hiring a virtual assistant to help you manage your business while you’re away. They can help with tasks like responding to emails, managing your schedule, and booking travel arrangements.
  7. Prioritize Your Work: When you’re traveling, it’s easy to get distracted by all the new sights and experiences. Make sure you prioritize your work and set aside time each day to focus on your business.
  8. Stay Organized: Being organized is key when running a business while traveling. Keep track of your schedule, expenses, and important documents using tools like Evernote or Trello.
  9. Take Time for Yourself: Finally, don’t forget to take time for yourself. Traveling can be stressful, and it’s important to take breaks and recharge your batteries. Take time to explore your surroundings, try new things, and enjoy your trip.

Running a business while traveling can be challenging, but with the right tools and mindset, it can also be a rewarding experience. Follow these tips to help you manage your business while on the move.

Until next time


Love being a trusted house sitter.

Love being a trusted house sitter.

I am back house sitting and it feels great. It feels so good to enjoy house sitting again.  I  enjoyed a lovely 6 week sit in Melbourne back in June,  which gave me the space after leaving my ex in  QLD and making the move away from a toxic situation to heal and entertain friends and learn to be on my own again. 

  I am building my online income so I can do more and more of this.   I am currently house-sitting in a gorgeous cabin on Table Cape, not far from my home base, where I am living with my parents.  

The views are amazing and it is a very tranquil spot to relax, 

I have had some lovely house sits over the years, all around Melbourne, & Victoria,  NSW & Perth,  I have enjoyed coastal sits and country sits and beautiful homes and lovely animals.  

All with varying lengths from a few days to 3 months.   It is a great way to explore areas and live like a local, as that is the only way I travel.   I like to blend in. It’s fun exploring areas and having the time to do so.

I gave up house sitting years ago, as I wanted to settle in one spot,  which I did in the lovely town of Milawa, in Northeast Victoria,

A home base is important to me and that will not change,  however, I will continue to do occasional house sits, mainly in Tassie as there is so much of this lovely state to see.  Although I grew up here, I left when I was 30, and there are so many places, I would like to explore and revisit and have more time to enjoy what Tassie has to offer.   

I highly recommend house sitting as a great way to travel and explore and happy to share any advice, just reach out.  

A couple of things that help are a current Police Check and even some practice sits for friends to get some references.  

I highly recommend Aussie House sitters, they have been my main source of quality house sits over the years.  The other one worth checking out is House Sit Match 

I hope you enjoyed this snippet into life as a house sitter
