Work from Paris? Oui!

PR Consultants really can work from anywhere, and when it comes to enjoying this career path there's nothing better than mixing it up a bit. Take Valerie Chereskin, who I met at the PRSA International Conference, and who successfully spent a full month in Paris:

It can be done! Have you ever been creative in where and how you worked? What's your dream?

  1. You stole my dream. Kidding, except I'd want to go and live there longer.

    As a solo MarComm (public relations, social media, design) consultant, “Have laptop, will travel” is my motto when traveling. I take workations, only rarely ever being unreachable. Email, Skype, other tools are available from anywhere, projects can be delivered. Glad to see you were able to make it work.

  2. You're right, Davina. I often think it's a good idea for us to work from an interesting location, just to remind us that we can.

  3. I always tell people one of the great things about being solo is I get to do the work I want to do when I want to and the way I want to. What a great example of why I can add “where I want to” to that list.

  4. I love that, Mary — might have to “borrow” your expression sometime!

  5. How fun to be in Paris for a month! Great story Valerie! My PR colleague and I went to Lake Tahoe for 3 weeks with laptops, phones & printers – and worked in the morning and skiied in the afternoons! It was fantastic!

  6. I worked while traveling in Central America for the whole month. Worked from hotels, beaches, people's apartments… I love my job as a PR consultant! Raminta Tsopelas, NYC

  7. So what's next Valerie? Italy, Israel, Spain…Start planning. 🙂
