Greetings From I-95: My Mobile Work Experiment

good customer service essayp style=”text-align: center;”>

As soon as I got my first office job, I began to wonder why more employees didn’t work remotely. In many cases the transition wouldn’t really be that difficult.  You’d just need the proper software, a designated work computer, and maybe a work phone. I’m oversimplifying of course, but what I found is that most companies didn’t let their employees work from home because they were afraid that everyone would want to do it, not because it wasn’t feasible.

As I write this, I’m cruising down I-95 South heading to North Carolina for the week. Thanks to my wife’s Palm Pre Plus I have a fairly solid 3G connection to work from, and I have to say its awesome.  I’m not much of a gadget geek, but being able to pop open my laptop from almost anywhere and have everything at my fingertips is great.

With that said, I’m not sure how many of the bloggers I see working from laptops under a palm tree do it. The glare is pretty horrendous when the sun is angled the wrong way!
