Calling all humans who find themselves on the road for business. Everybody that does the "Monday-Thursday and home on the weekend," and everybody who is gone for months at a time. Calling all sales reps, diplomats, photographers, journalists, military personnel, musicians, yacht crews, archeologists, foreign aid workers, and everybody else who finds themselves away from home for their professional calling. We are a rowdy bunch. We are a fiercely independent tribe of doers, explorers, and free spirits. And we all have a collection of outlandish, scary, eye-opening, heart warming and practical stories to share and learn from.
Working remotely can also feel like you are on an island. You lose the office camaraderie and a structured work environment. Neither my house plants or hotel room desks provide fun office banter. Working remotely is only for the self-motivator, and it can be challenging. We all have tips and tricks for staying focused and balanced while leading a not-so-average lifestyle. I believe we can all learn from one another and bond our growing community of independent and remote businesses.
Collected on this site are some found favorites from myself and others who have embraced the Road Warrior lifestyle, for better or worse.

Skincare and Beauty: I am a tomboy. I don't even own a hairdryer. However, I do care about taking care of my skin and hair, those are natures foundations! You need less makeup and "maintenance" if you keep the foundation healthy. Constantly changing environments, being in dirty cities or dry deserts, and lack of sleep all lead to the deterioration of your skin. Keep yourself looking young and fresh with a few little tricks!
Health and Fitness: I love doughnuts, and queso, and sleep. I also like fitting into pants. Such a hard balance. It is too easy to fall off the the healthy bandwagon when you have zero daily routine. Make time for yourself. You cannot pour from an empty cup.

Cities: This is honestly just a section of notes for myself to remember things that I like and places I've stayed! Feel free to browse :)
I am fortunate enough to have a career that involves a significant amount of travel. My mother gave me the adventure bug at a very young age, and neither of us have slowed down since. As long as I can remember, all I wanted was to make my living through travel and learning. By being open to new opportunities, taking risks, and working incredibly hard, here I am! So grateful for this life, and wouldn't trade it for anything.
