Three Tips for Becoming an 'Everywhere' Entrepreneur That's Always Doing Business

Does your business stop as soon as you go “off the clock?”

We didn’t think so. This is especially true for business owners today who are constantly expected to operate 24/7.

We live in an era of entrepreneurship that requires us to constantly be “on” when it comes to selling, acquiring new clients and customer and networking. This in and of itself can be both exhausting and lead to burnout; meanwhile, some of us thrive on the idea of being a million places at once.

Building a business that operates from literally anywhere requires some legwork and planning on your part, but can be a total game-changer in terms of your productivity and profitability. If you absolutely love the grind and want to grow your empire sooner rather than later, follow these tips towards becoming an entrepreneur that can do business from just about anywhere.

Setting Up Your Home Office

Despite popular belief, the ability to successfully work from home means much more than simply having a desk to put your work laptop on. Having a dedicated home office with all the bells and whistles of a modern workspace (think: conference space, multiple monitors and new tech) has major benefits. From task write-offs to guaranteeing productivity, doing the legwork and investing in a proper home office should be a top priority.

While there is indeed some initial cost involved, consider such a project as a legitimate investment into your business. Meanwhile, companies such as Hearth can provide immediate assistance toward home projects to ensure that you get down to business sooner rather than later.

Finding the Right Local Hotspots

Whether you’re hitting up local cafes or co-working spaces, it’s important to get out of the house every now and then for the sake of your sanity and to avoid the phenomenon of entrepreneurial depression. After all, some of us thrive in environments where we have the opportunity to work alongside fellow business owners and creatives, especially as solopreneurs.

Having a variety of local hotspots to hand out not only gives you something to look forward to and keeps you on your toes, but also opens you up to new networking opportunities. After all, there’s a high chance that there are other local business owners in your area in your shoes as well.

Speaking of which don’t make the mistake of being an island and ignoring networking opportunities. Even if you run a digital company, having local clients and customers often represents a snowball effect that’ll introduce you to higher-up professionals within your community. In short, having a local network is just another form of social proof that shows your influence to those unfamiliar with your business.

Get Your Mobile Tech Right

In order to successfully to do business at home or on-the-go, there are some essentials that should be in your tech arsenal to make sure that you never go offline.

For those constantly working remotely, some major must-haves include…

  • A reliable laptop and smartphone combination for communication (bear in mind that refurbished models of both can be purchased at the fraction of the cost of a new machine while working just as well)

  • Productivity tools and project management platforms like Trello and Basecamp to keep you in touch with your team and on task within any given project

  • Skype and Slack to further communication with clients and team-members who you simply don’t have to the time to hit up on the phone
Modern entrepreneurs are expected to stay swift and quite literally work from everywhere at anytime. By following these tips, you can constantly stay in touch with your clients and customers and keep business coming in.
