Online Scheduling Services to Simplify your Escape

It's 3:00am in Paradise, Anywhere. You are getting your beauty sleep before a long day of doing whatever the heck you want- when the phone rings.

phone in bed

You: (groggy)"Hello?"

Intruder: "Oh- Hi! This is <
your co-worker>. I am not sure what time it is over there.... but I really need your help because my computer won't turn on.... Oh nevermind- just figured it out. There's a big power button right on the front. Who knew? Thanks anyways!"

Dont mention it. It is not like I was sleeping or anything- and besides- the whole reason I moved half way across the world was to take phone calls that could have been resolved in 10 more seconds of dedicated thought or atleast condensed into a lame email. I would like to propose one solution that has made a huge effect in my telecommuting...


Extreme Telecommuting Power
US to EU Power adapter

As a recent convert to telecommuting, I wanted to share a small bit of wisdom that I gleaned from some online research, and which I think that any first-time traveler will benefit from, and any veteran would agree with. The least expensive item that I carry in my laptop back has also continuously proved to be the most useful: A simple indoor 2 prong 10ft. extension cord(preferably with multiple outlets for external hard-drives or cell phones)

Although nearly every airport, bus or train station has electrical outlets available- they are almost NEVER conveniently located- and a small extension cord with the right adapter is key for creating your mobile office on the run. 

A word on adapters- if you look on your power supplies, most will already be rated for 100V-240V. This is ideal for traveling, as it means that you will NOT need an expensive CONVERTER, just an adapter, like the one pictured below. These cost only a few dollars, the one pictured below will cover Europe, Eastern Europe, and The FSU(Former Soviet Union)

Live Hard, Work Virtually. 


Which Telecommuting Lifestyle is Right for You?


The Digital Nomad's Road to Paradise

Would you like to spend your working days traveling to exotic locations, while still being able to maintain your current level of income?  This may seem like an impossible dream, but today many people are living this dream. These telecommuting pioneers are doing so through the use of emerging portable technologies, with an independent spirit, and a dash of courage.  This new telecommuting practice is known as extreme telecommuting.

Streamlining Your Telecommuting Processes


When extreme telecommuting, a working professional has full control over operating methods, allowing for customization of all working procedures. Compared to the well-established and rarely changing procedures within a corporate office, an Extreme Telecommuter is free to make his or her business as efficient as possible.  A wise professional will recognize this, and will use the newest technologies, programs, services, and processes, to keep maintenance tasks and business management to a minimum, while maximizing time spent on the more important, valuable activities.

US Money, Foreign Life

Countries like Thailand, Costa Rica and Mexico are full of American and British retirees with small pensions. These are individuals who, had they stayed in their home countries, would be eking out a marginal living, counting pennies, clipping coupons and living on canned soup. But that same pension in a place like Bangkok goes a lot further. It comes down to a choice of living in poverty back home, or living in luxury in a third world country—and many retirees are opting for the ex-pat way of life.
