Your own WiFi

And you don’t want to worry about finding a reliable WiFi hotspot in time, and, in the worst case scenario, have to sit at McDonalds all day to be able to do your job… Besides, it doesn’t look professional to your clients if you can’t showcase your work. They may think you came in unprepared… Therefore, make sure that you bring along your own mobile WiFi hotspot at all times. You can also connect it to your other devices, and it’s way more safe than open networks. It definitely frees you from stress!
Charge in time
Do you have an important business meeting tomorrow or do you need to finish your work when you’re on the plane? Then make sure to charge your laptop, table, mobile phone or whatever device you need in advance. After all, you may not have access to a power outlet while traveling. It might also be a good idea to pack (and charge) a powerful wireless charger.
You may get an important business call while on the road. If you’re sitting on a busy train with a lot of noise, it may be difficult to understand your client. Besides, if you’re holding your phone in your hand it may be difficult to make notes. Therefore, make sure you bring your headphones. This makes it easier to call and type at the same time. Besides, if you have a so-called noise-cancelling headphones, it’s easier to understand your client. And if you want to work on the road without getting distracted by all the noise, noise-cancelling headphones are a necessity. They help you concentrate much better.
