Modern technology allows us to be more mobile than ever before. With the ability to get Internet access from virtually anywhere on our many different mobile devices, tasks that once had to be done in the office can now be done remotely. If your work does not require you to meet with people in-person on a regular basis, it can be tempting to pick up your laptop and smartphone and hit the road.
