Instagram Live #3: Maintaining a Workflow while you Travel, Tips on Creating your First Project, and Finding Community

Hello, World! I’m working from Oslo again.  This is the perfect time to speak with you about maintaining a workflow while you travel because I’m doing it now.  I’ll be on Instagram live this Friday, September 8th at 6 am central.  You’ll probably be sleeping, or just getting your Friday started, or just ending your Thursday night.  So, I’ll leave the playback up for 24 hours. Thank you so much to everyone who sent me questions via Instagram and Slack! This is everything I’ll be talking about in the morning: How do you stay connected to your community while traveling? Traveling is fun, but it can disrupt routines and work flow.  How do you maintain your workflow through your travels? Why did you choose to save those 3 programming books?

I did another Instagram Live today.   I was less concerned about how I looked or mixing up my words than I was yesterday.  I was more concerned with why my mom was hopping on Instagram Live, talking about “What time are you making me dinner?” This Instagram Live ended up being 45 minutes long, and it’s still up on my Instagram now.  If you want to catch the next one, follow me on Instagram, and DM me when you do.  I’ll make sure I’ll account for your time zone when planning the next one 🙂 On Freelancing I’ve been getting a lot more questions about freelancing lately.  So many, that I’ve decided that season 3 of the SheNomads podcast is going to focus solely on freelancing. For those of you who haven’t listened to the podcast, season 1 was on Being a Digital Nomad.  Season 2 is being recorded now…

Instagram Live #1: Remote Interviews, Switching Careers and Finding Jobs

I thought I was going to be babysitting on my lunch break (one of the perks of working from my parent’s house this week) but turns out my expert auntie services weren’t needed.  So, I decided to do a quick Q and A on Instagram Live. Q1: So I got my certificate in web dev and I’m studying CS, but I am trying to find a creative role in tech that fits me. I haven’t applied to anything yet but everything I look at seems to want you to have lots of experience (I’m a newbie) and it seems like I have to be in an office. I don’t want boredom to run me away from my interest. Can you give me a few pointers/advice? I’m a tech girl but more than anything a creative. My main point of advice here was to think about the companies you’re applying to, and…
