How To Process Sales While You\’re On The Road


If you’re an entrepreneur who is constantly on-the-go, you know that just about any time is a good time to take advantage of a business opportunity. For example, you could be at the airport awaiting a flight. In such an instance, most people would consider themselves to simply be in “travel mode”. You know, however, that you are still at work.

In all likelihood, you’ve connected to the airport’s Wi-Fi, turned on your laptop and started sending emails to colleagues and clients. As well, you’re aware that, at any moment, you may meet someone who may help you to take your business to the next level. Of course, this all depends on the type of business you own and the type of work you do. No matter what, however, it’s always wise to be ready for your next sale while on the road.

Take advantage of airline loyalty programs.

If you do a lot of flying, you’re likely a member of an airline loyalty program already. This only makes sense considering the amount of time you spend at airports and on airplanes. As previously mentioned, you’re the kind of person who needs a comfortable and quiet place to work since you’re not regularly in your office. An airline loyalty program can offer that to you.

“If you’re traveling regionally or to the same destination frequently, airline loyalty programs may come in handy,” notes, “Consider the value of working from the airport and weigh up the value of choosing an airline that includes the use of a free hospitality lounge. You’ll save money on food and beverages – and you can punch out some of your irritating admin work in peace with decent wi-fi and a comfortable environment.”

Stay in touch with family.

While this act doesn’t directly lead to sales, it’s a necessary part of being a busy entrepreneur. Never forget why you work so hard. Your family needs to hear from you and you need to hear from them. Just as importantly, it’s wise to not work all around the clock. You’re human and you need breaks. Rejuvenate yourself with regular check-ins at home.

“If you have a family or a loved one back at home – try and talk to them every day, even if it’s just for a short period,” advises, “Even if you just check in with a different friend when your work day is done, you’ll find it easier to maintain a connection to home and reinvigorate yourself to avoid prolonged bouts of isolation.”
