I’ve been running a web design business for the last 3 years from my hometown in the UK. I’ll be leaving for Chiang Mai in June and will be travelling across South-East Asia for 6 months.
Wondering if anyone has experience running a service based business on the road? One of my concerns is almost all my clients want to have face-to-face meetings, especially initial meetings to see if we can work together.
Obviously Skype is an option but when I’ve suggested this in the past people would much rather meet face-to-face.
Another potential stumbling block is being available to answer phone calls, although there seem to be good value telephone answering services available.
My long term goal is to move away from this and focus on building products as it allows for greater flexibility and growth. However, I need to continue the web design business for the foreseeable future as I have no other income streams as of yet.
Does anyone have any advice for running a service based business on the road? . Any advice is much appreciated
