Staying Organized While Traveling, Blogging, & Working from Anywhere

Thank you to Tile, Inc., for sponsoring today’s post & inspiring me to keep track of everything that matters.

The last couple months have been so hectic as a new entrepreneur & there are no signs of it slowing down. Yesterday, I came home from a wedding only to realize I still hadn't unpacked from my Palm Springs trip two weeks ago. I kicked off my baby pink velvet pumps & walked over to my wall calendar to tally up the days until the next excursion. 

Just as I thought. Later this week, I'm heading to Northern California for a media trip. I get to stay in a hotel room for one night to create buzz on my blog for their holiday amenities. It's going to be a blast! Then, yep, London is in 2 weeks. 

I love this. 

I love that this is my life. 

I love that I am free. I can work from anywhere as long as I get Wi-Fi. Whether I'm crafting a blog post, sharing an update to my social media channels, or chatting via video call with one of my coaching clients, my workday feels like the summers of my childhood — long, exciting, beautiful, hopeful, marvelous, inspirational. But I always knew those childhood summer breaks from school would end. 

Summer ended, but I'm still here. That's the beauty of it. That's the beauty of being your own boss, of being an entrepreneur, of being self-employed, working from ANYWHERE. You don't know what next month will hold or next year. It's all within my own hands. 

But that's also the challenge. 

I'm constantly switching suitcases, bags, folders, backpacks. Sometimes it's hard to keep track where everything is. Did I leave my camera charger in the Palm Springs suitcase? Where the heck is my planner? Which backpack is my favorite sweater in?

Cue Tile.

Use Tile & the Tile app to be a part of the lost-and-found community, where friends & strangers come together to find everything that matters. You can easily hook, stick, or slide a Tile onto or into anything you don’t want to lose like the earrings your grandmother gave you or Earnie the stuffed panda, & of course, keys, phones, wallets. I put Tile in my business planner.

My planner contains receipts, deadlines, tasks, & everything I could possibly need to stay organized while traveling, blogging, & working from anywhere.

Tile gives me peace of mind so I can track my item in a jiffy. I use my phone to locate my planner & figure where it is. It ended up saving me time because rather than sifting through yesterday's suitcase & today's purse & everything in-between. Beep beep beep. I can find it right away.

My planner means a lot to me. It keeps me on track. It keeps me organized. It keeps me moving forward. It shows every single client session I've had this year. It's been there with me as I transitioned from corporate cubicle to the world of entrepreneurship. If there is something you can't stand to lose, put a Tile on it!

  8. If you like it then you shoulda put a tile on it! ;) I’ve heard of these and I’ve been dying to try them. I’m such a organization freak I don’t lose things often, but I’m tempted to be careless just to play with a Tile, haha!

  9. I've been thinking about getting Tile for awhile now - going to add it to my Christmas list :)

  10. How cute! I love your planner! I've been meaning to get a Tile for my dog who is an escape artist that loves to dash out the front door. He's chipped of course but I'm also just a really paranoid crazy dog-mom. lol!

  14. I love it! Brought it to London with me!

  15. Yes! It's perfect & very reasonably priced too. :]

  16. Hahaha, too true. Gotta put a Tile on it! :]

  17. You could even put the Tile in the kitty clutch! :]

  18. Thanks - my planner was a random Marshalls find. I love that place!

  19. It's honestly been really cool so far! :]

  20. The 4-pack is a good deal, especially if you know more people who could benefit from it. The slim ones are super sleek & cool! :]
