Proof You Can Run Your Online Business From Just About Anywhere

Last Update: March 12, 2018

I am currently on a cruise liner en route to New Caledonia in the South Pacific.

With the help of satellite Internet I have been able to continue working on my WA business which is proof that you can run your online business from just about anywhere, as long as you have an Internet connection.

Here are some pics of just some of the places that have been 'my office' on board over the last week:











Not a bad way to make a living huh?

Hello Mark, what a great blog post and yes, I believe it is possible to make a living while on a cruise and you have proved this! It's great that you had satellite Internet, incidentally, was the Internet available 100% of the time, or were there places with no Internet?

Congratulations's to you Mark for creating so much freedom.

Thanks Roy. Appreciate your comment. Yes the Internet was available all the time although I did notice that the speed was variable and in some places very slow. Once you get used it though you find ways to work around the challenges that come up.:)

Thank you for your reply, Mark. It's great that you have the Internet, even if was a bit slow at times, technology never fails to amaze me! Your blog post is a great example of the freedom an Internet business can bring.

Wishing you even more success Mark.

For the most part looks very comfy to sit, have some quiet time and get some work done. Remember, you are on vacation. Have a good time.

Nice working environment, awesome variety of working spots to get cozy in with your laptop!

Seriously, that's my biggest "why" in starting an online business - the ability to travel and work from anywhere in the world!

Enjoy the cruise Mark :)

Nice, Mark. Quick question. My wife would like to take a cruise but she’s afraid she would be seasick the whole time. Is your ship pretty stable? Just curious.
Grant
Reply
MarkBa Premium
Hey Grant, it was a little rough for the first few days but I didn't see anybody get sea sick. Most big cruise liners have great stabilisers they put to good use when it's choppy. I say do it! Great value for money. :)

I've been on Navy cruises. My last ship had a round bottom and rolled like a barrel with the swells. I thought it was fun, but my wife would have jumped overboard.

Although I have to say that when I'm on holiday I certainly don't take my work along with me ;)

Agreed Alan, although I'm not officially on holiday since this is a work trip so I thought I may as well see whether I was able to make it all work together. Seems it's possible, however I have to say the longer I've been on board the slower and more relaxed I've become. LOL
