When you skip across the great big blue in pursuit of that sweet-freedom-filed-laptop-lifestyle, it can be easy to get cozy with the “freedom” part and lapse on the “laptop” part. All of a sudden there is no company newsletter alerting you to new trends; no boss dishing out the industry skinny before you’ve had your first caffeine dose; no executive admin booking you discounted motels for this quarters conference.
