You Know You’re a Mobile Professional When . . .

These days, everyone is more mobile than ever. We’re driving more and flying more, seemingly on-the-go 24×7 either for play or for work. Professionals are not immune to this phenomenon. In fact, many professionals—whether they are executives, business owners, solopreneurs, or sales and account reps—spend more time on the road or in the air than they do in their brick and mortar offices.

Let’s then take a look at those career signposts that indicate you just might be a mobile professional:

  • You communicate more by smartphone or text than you do face-to-face.
  • You typically interact with your work colleagues and clients as voices on a conference call or smiling faces on the other end of a video feed, rather than in person.
  • Your idea of a day of shopping is to open your app, make your selections, and then have those items shipped to your next destination (usually a hotel or field office).
  • A day of work usually means a visit to at least one airport, train, or bus station, or a lengthy drive (2+ hours).
  • The view out your office “window” for the day usually consists of the headrest of the fellow passenger sitting in front of you, or the view out your hotel window.
  • You’ve gotten really good at using your laptop’s track pad, or you can make your cursor race across the screen with the tiniest wiggle of your mouse.
  • You carry at least one external source of power as a backup, just in case one or more of your devices needs a recharge.
  • You could write a consumer report comparing and contrasting the strength and reliability of Wi-Fi signals at various hotels.
  • You’re starting to call flight attendants by name from memory, or they’re starting to call you by name.
  • Using Uber or Lyft is no longer a novelty.
  • You consider yourself an expert at utilizing every square inch of your carry-on luggage.

Can you see yourself or your situation in any of the above?

If so, chances are you are a mobile professional and part of a growing trend. In the January 2018 article, Stop Neglecting Remote Workers, Harvard Business Review stated that 31% of Americans now work remotely (a number that is increasing rapidly), which means that today’s workers need and want to be able to travel with confidence—sometimes at a moment’s notice—confident that their gear is organized, protected, and easy to take with them wherever they’re going.
