If the idea of an extended RV road trip enthralls you, but if you also run your business from the comfort of your Tucson home, then the two may seem completely incompatible.
This might especially be true if you’ve been extremely busy lately and taking a mere one day off seems like it could spell disaster.
Nonetheless, RV trips are meant to be enjoyed by anybody who wants to embark on them, and that certainly includes you. As Outdoorsy states “an RV rental from a local outdoorsy member near Tucson can take you out into the desert, or bring you closer to the city life.” In other words, your RV trip can be enjoyed just the way you want it and can be a truly great time to relax and blow some steam.
Therefore, rather than tell yourself that going on the RV trip you’ve always wanted to isn’t an option, you should instead find ways to go on the trip while balancing your work, and that’s what we’re going to talk about now.
Here are three things you need to do before you take your Tucson-based home business on the road:
1 – Get As Much Done Beforehand
The more work you can get done before you leave on the trip, the better. But if you don’t think that doubling down and getting more stuff done before you leave is going to do anything, the backup solution is to relegate some of your work to someone else.
Even if you run your business alone, for example, you could still handle a freelance virtual assistant to handle calls and respond to e-mails for you. You’d just have to make sure that you hire them a week or two before you leave so you can really teach them the in’s and out’s of your business.
2- Set Up A Dedicated Area To Work
The next thing you need to do before you leave is set up a dedicated work space in your RV. If you own an RV, then ideally you would install a desk or something similar, but for renting an RV this more than likely won’t be an option.
So instead, you’ll need to find another way to set up a workspace instead. Probably the most obvious place to set up shop would be at the table in the kitchen or living space, though this will also force everybody in the RV to eat somewhere else.
3 – Bring A Wi-Fi Router
Sure, you can plan to make stops at coffee shops or restaurants that have Wi-Fi, or the RV park you’ve made reservations at may claim to have internet as well, but no guarantees can be made that you’ll receive access.
It will simply be safer to bring your own Wi-Fi router with you to ensure that you can answer e-mails and do other things online while you’re on the go.
Taking Your Business To The Road
As you can hopefully tell, it’s fully possible to hit the road in an RV while still running your home-based business.
