A misdirection that was a blessing in disguise.
The very first time Linda Claire Puig tried to create a course and webinar, everything that could go wrong did go wrong. She was afraid before she started that the technical learning curve and the possibility of glitches happening on the day of the event would derail her efforts, equalling a huge failure. What happened was exactly what she feared. Her website had issues, the follow through was disrupted, and she didn’t hit the homerun she was hoping for. But what she learned from the experience was well worth the pain because it forced her to feel the fear and do it anyway and showed her that she could be a very effective teacher.

Tools you can use to run your business from the road.
One of the key pieces that needs to be in place in order to run your business as you travel is the ability to communicate, pass information and resources to team members, and keep projects rolling. You can’t do that if everything is stored on your laptop or in a file cabinet in an office somewhere. Tools like Dropbox, Google Drive, and Asana make those tasks much simpler because they are cloud based and easy to use. Teams can stay in touch, resources can be shared, and the business can move forward with ease.
