Happy ‘National Work From Home Day!’ If you’re currently sitting in an office it sounds like you missed the memo. Don’t worry, we’re making it up for you since we technically work from home everyday. Don’t believe us? We wrote a post about our virtual office in Sococo this week with screenshots and all, about how we work as a team from five different cities. So whether you’re working from home, in a co-working space or in a fancy corner office, we went ahead and compiled some great resources on ways to get work done no matter your location. And since the summer is upon us, which means travel, travel and did we mention travel, we’ve also added a few lists of the best apps to use for your business travel. Don’t thank us just yet, check out the list and feel free to comment and add some of your own business travel survival tips!

Get Things Done…LIKE A BOSS.

The Best Way To Work On Trains, Planes & Automobiles

We all have deadlines. Whether you like it or not, deadlines don’t go away until we make them go away. Now that the summer is upon us, we probably have more trips than usual but guess what? Your deadlines have to travel with you. If you’re like us and you never miss a deadline (plug) and don’t want to start while you’re traveling, Inc.com has a number of ways you can effortlessly travel and still meet your personal and professional obligations. Learn how to get ahead of jetlag, the best way to board a plane and how to keep yourself healthy while on the road. There are a few more ‘lifehacks’ you can use but let us know if you have other tips and tricks of surviving work while traveling!

Work Smart

What if you could enhance your career and travel at the same time…for free? Well, not entirely free but close. There a few creative folks, like teacher Kelly McKimson-Rhodes, who travel across the world by trading their skills for lodging. It sounds like we should trade our nifty PR and marketing skills to get to our next destination but while we work on that, read more about Kelly’s journey in The Chicago Tribune. It’s pretty clear that travel is at the top of everyone’s list this week because The New York Times just released a list of news and tips to make your travel just a little better.

Tips and Tools to Travel Right

File this section under: ‘Things We Saw On The Jetsons.’ The Apple Watch is changing life as we know it and it’s getting in the travel business now, adding a little more tech to your travel routine. Business Insider breaks down how you can use the new watch to get your gate information, open your hotel room and get real-time food and leisure suggestions. If you’re holding off on getting the Apple Watch for now, you can still get the most out of your travel with this great list of apps from The Daily Mail. You can find the best flight and hotel deals with Hipmunk. No matter what app or lifehack you decide to use on your next trip, remember to be present, work hard and enjoy yourself!
