I love the fact that I can work from anywhere. My location serves as my canvas.

One of my favorite places to work from is an artful hotel lobby. The elegant and alive-with-energy setting of an upscale hotel inspires me – in both on and off “work hours”.

In case you’ve never done such a thing, allow me to offer a nudge: You don’t need to stay, for example, at the Ritz Carlton to use it as a perfect excuse to get dressed up, walk in with confidence, be greeted with grace by the concierge, and find a comfortable place to sit with a notebook or laptop.  You can embrace the social atmosphere and order a beverage too, if you’d like – it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right?

14591667_10210823919177343_5258877635864448130_nI introduced my sister to the fun of this while visiting her in Vermont. Two miles from her home, we found a swanky hotel that she had never walked into. We decided in advance to order coffee and when we did, much to our surprise, we were shone to a complimentary fresh coffee bar and invited to please help ourselves. Following my lead, she and I expressed our thanks and proceeded to enjoy free coffee.  🙂

I encourage you: Do it, and let me know how it goes!

The pictures seen here are of my recent visit to Hotel Monaco, which served well as Nomadic Leaders virtual headquarters for a day. Seeing and hearing the comings and goings of people from all over the world, were the perfect backdrop while I chipped away at preparations for your Nomadic Leaders experience of a lifetime.

Tell me: Where are YOU working from today?

    Today I’m working from home. Most days I work from home. I am fortunate to work for a company and have a job that does not require my presence in order to do my job. Due to being on conference calls most of the time, it’s tough to work where it’s noisy. However, when my day is call free, you can find me for part of the day at my favorite coffee shop 🙂 (and for the first 56 days of 2017, I’ll be working from Key West!)
