So, earlier this week (10/07/2017) there was a security alert in the Fenchurch Street area (my usual hangout). All of the office buildings, coffee shops, and the station itself were evacuated. So I found myself being ushered away from the immediate area by armed police.
While I was waiting for information on what was going, many rumours started to circulate about what had happened, one of which was a suspected car bomb and plans of a controlled explosion! After some initial anxiety, followed by the realisation that these rumours were most likely untrue, I started thinking about how long it would take to get back to my desk so that I could continue to plough through my to-do list.
Fortunately, I was already on my way out of the building when all the commotion started and was suitably equipped with my phone and laptop. Who needs a desk and an office!? So, after laughing at myself for my momentary lapse in common sense, I found a nice seat in the shade, wirelessly tethered my laptop to my phone for mobile internet, and continued with my work.
Which brings me nicely to the point of this blog post.
How To Work From Anywhere
My temporary outside "office" in the shade was made possible by cloud computing. Cloud services allow you to basically work from anywhere as long as you have access to a device that can connect to the internet. This is extremely convenient, even if you're not caught up in the middle of a bomb scare, because it means that you're work is no longer location dependent (dependent on the work you do, of course). The potential benefits of this way of working too numerous to list but a few of them are:
Remote working can be achieved by sourcing and subscribing to the right cloud software you need to run your business.
