Do you ever wonder about the Laptop Lifestyle? Living the dream in beautiful locations around the world?
Got small children? Then I would imagine the laptop lifestyle seems about as real to you as a holiday on Mars.
The truth is this, while the laptop lifestyle sounds amazing – it can only really be enjoyed by those who are retired or child-less.
When you have kids – you have to have roots. So whilst I would love to be sunning myself in some far flung exotic location – their needs are my priority.
So here I am living the softplay lifestyle.
While my kids were off safely enjoying themselves – I got on with some serious business on my iPhone!
Whilst it’s not that glamorous, it’s great to have options available to me that mean I can accommodate the needs of my children.
If they’re sick, I don’t have to make that awkward phonecall to say “I wont make it in”. I can reschedule my commitments to another day, and just be Mum.
I have an online business and all the technology I need in the palm of my hand. I can only recommend that people take full advantage of the digital age and go with it. The great news is you don’t need to be a techno whizz or a genius – and in fact you don’t even need an original idea!
Whether you’re a parent or not – the key to the life you want to lead is flexibility and doing what you want to do – and if you’re in the position to go with the laptop lifestyle then that’s awesome.
For me it’s about the freedom of being there for my children – and the balance it affords me in my everyday life.
