Last week I drove out to see my son in Glendale, California. We were giving him our old Acura with 180,000 miles on it as he has been driving a 1991 Toyota Corolla. The Acura should be a more reliable car, and it is definitely cooler, so he was really excited to be getting it. I made sure my client was ok with my working remotely for the week, as I planned to drive the car out one weekend, stay for the week, attend my cousin’s wedding in Arizona, and fly home the following weekend. A very busy schedule, and one where I really needed to keep up with my workload and business activities.
I think the only difficult think I could imagine was: What if I got something in the mail that needed to be handled urgently? Well, Chris was still home and getting the mail, and she would let me know if anything came in the had to be dealt with. Otherwise, we use Quickbooks Online for our accounting, Intuit for payroll, and most of the client work can be done with Remote Desktop through a VPN. I use my Apple Macbook Pro to run everything, including a copy of Vista, so no problems there.
