Don’t put your faith in coffee shops
People talk about working remotely like coffee shops are the best and only option, but they’re precarious resources to plan around, especially if you’re on deadline or have a big Skype meeting. Often, they’re everything you don’t want your workspace to be -- crowded, loud, expensive, lacking outlets, and -- most crucially -- outfitted with unreliable WiFi. If you find one that’s reliably, consistently quiet and has good Wifi and doesn’t mind you setting up shop for six hours (and you, in turn, do not mind paying for six hours’ worth of coffee and muffins) then that’s great. Those places exist. But y’know what place is much, much more likely to give you all those amenities, for free? The nearest public library. Go find that. Work there. Live there. Save the cafes for when you’re not on deadline.
Airports and train stations are also always good standbys when you’re hunting for free WiFi, as are -- really -- bars (so long as you can work while you drink). And one last tip -- WeWorks and the like will often give you a one-day trial pass for free. Which, for someone on the move like you, might be all you need.
