For most people travel means holiday, but for the working hobo who wants to “get shit done” it’s a different story. The hobo CEO’s priority is reducing disruption from travel and quickly finding an environment to foster high quality work, then once that’s set up “holiday” can be introduced in controlled bursts.

In this episode we look at how to oil the 4 basic wheels for productivity.

  • Accommodation
  • Connectivity
  • Orientation
  • Making yourself at home

Some clever hacks include – have people you know “beta test” places before you visit, go to places where you know people already who can help organise everything before you arrive, have a little flexibility with routines, and hiring a local assistant for a week or two.
