What tools does a nomad use? Specifically for working remotely, my list includes…
A light Mac, currently the late-generation MacBook with a retina screen
iPad Pro, for reading and sketching
TwelveSouth bookbook cases for both of these things
An unlocked smartphone, so I can go anywhere in the world, buy a local a simm, and be up and running. If I don’t care to just use wifi and Google Voice.
Google Voice, for calls. It’s mapped to my US phone number, and I can get and make calls and texts for free anywhere in the world there’s wifi.
a solid VPN on all my devices, to help secure my traffic in public wifi spaces
cloud storage and backup – I have regular automatic backups to one solution and my client-facing working docs going to another, with my own personal docs on a third
Google, Apple, and Microsoft apps
Platinum status with AA, which translates to Emerald with the One World Alliance
An Osprey Farpoint 40 backpack, perfect for carry-on and fitting in any overhead bin, can be worn like a backpack or the straps can be hidden and I can sling it like a shoulder bag.
Vivobarefoot Ra II shoes, because we live on our feet (^_^
