Last week, I was forced to take an impromptu vacation.
With Hurricane Florence barreling toward the east coast of the United States, I was persuaded to flee north by a combination of The Weather Channel, scaremongering Facebook posts, and calls from my parents.
The result? A few days in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and zero work accomplished, despite having my laptop in tow.
(I don’t know about you, but I always overestimate my ability to get anything done when on the road.)
For my area at least, it was a bit of a non-issue. I think a few trash bins blew over, but weather is unpredictable – and evacuating was the right thing to do.
But guess what?
Even though I took the entire week off, my finances were unaffected. People, presumably those who weren’t in the path of a hurricane, still bought from me last week.
It was a good week.
Many of us pursue freelancing for the freedom.
We want to be able to evacuate our homes, either for hurricanes or for getaways to the Caribbean, and have as little impact as possible on cash flow.
