Working remotely is the dream for many, being able to travel the world as well as get your work done and bring in enough money for it to be sustainable. If you’re your own boss, it can feel like you have to be in an office at all times and can’t live the more nomadic lifestyle.

Yet, fortunately, this is far from the truth. With today’s technology ensuring you can be in touch wherever you are and at whatever time, it’s never been so easy to work remotely and run a business. In this article we take a look at some top tips to ensure it works as smoothly as possible. Keep on reading to find out more.

Don’t let your managerial standards slip When Working Remotely

Being a good leader is about a whole package of things. You can find out more about this through videos such as on the Monty Cerf YouTube page. As well as being generally approachable, you need to be organized. And have your team know they can rely on you. When you’re in an office environment you’ll easily withhold these standards. It’s just when you leave and are far away you need to make more of an effort not to let these slip.

Have someone you rely on to be their first point of call

Being far away isn’t always easy, particularly if you’re somewhere in a different time zone. To avoid this being an issue, appoint someone you trust from your work force. That way, you can be the manager and hold down the fort back at home. They should be the point of contact for your employees and feed news and information back to you. By having them there to keep everything in order you can relax knowing you don’t need to worry and that your business will be ticking along and your employees happy.

Ensure it’s easy to keep in touch with your work force

Keeping in touch with what’s going on back home is important to keep everything running smoothly. While you might not always be available at the end of a phone, make sure you can be contacted in other ways such as via Zoom, emails or Slack. If you receive messages, make it your aim to get back to the person in question within 24-48 hours so they know you’re still easily contactable. This ensures nothing important gets missed. And your employees know you’re still there for both urgent and non-urgent enquiries to keep your business running well going forward. 

These are just a few top tips for working remotely when you run a business. Whether you have a large team or a few freelancers, the same rules still apply. Whether you already work abroad and are looking to continue to do so, or if it’s something you’re considering, these tips should help. What are some top tips you have?
