Like any regular Thursday, I’m working away on the day’s tasks at Mikogo. But this week I’m abroad in Barcelona, Spain, using online meetings and the Web to work remotely. Instead of going to Barcelona for just a few days of holiday, I arrived in Barcelona a week before my actual holiday begins. By preparing myself to work abroad I have increased my time in Spain but can still easily collaborate with my colleagues and get the job done. During the workday, I’m here at my laptop. Later I’m exploring the streets of Barcelona.
These days just about anyone can do the same with a small bit of preparation. Here are my tips on how you can set yourself up to work remotely abroad.
