Make the world your office!
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?
I 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. 🙂
Make the world your office! You never know who you’ll meet, what you’ll find, or what impromptu conversations you’ll have. A simple “Where’s home?” or “Are you in town for business?” are easy conversation starters.
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?
