What are the Tips for Successfully Working From Home When You’re in the Lomas Travel Industry?
When I am traveling I am on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. I understand that you work in the travel industry and many of us are constantly on call. Your phone will be ringing off the hook, all day, every day, and you will call people back in real-time for your next flight. In this article, I will share some of my favorite tips for working from home for Lomas travel industry professionals.
Have you ever been on a call and realized, “Hey, I was on the call, but I don’t have my phone with me.” If you have, you’ve probably been trying to get out of that call quickly and you’re probably running out of time.
Have you had that thought?
I have, and I am not proud of myself.
Yeah, I got that, but I was doing something I should have been doing. A lot of people like to do something on the fly. It’s a good thing too because if you’re not doing it right, you might just get lost.
I’m not talking about having issues with your phone, I’m talking about not doing it right with your phone. This is especially true when you’re traveling by air.
I got that too. But I was doing something I should have been doing and I was doing something I should have been doing. I was doing it right. But I’m not sure I was doing it enough. I don’t know what I was doing wrong. I mean, I was doing it right. But I was doing it wrong. I was not taking the time to look at my data, analyze it and get it right.
I think this is why many people end up in what is called “the Loma travel industry.” You know, after having worked all over the world for all sorts of companies, I’m sure you can think of at least one that’s pretty similar.
How big this industry is?
The Loma travel industry is a huge market that has grown exponentially over the past few years. You see it everywhere from hotels to airlines to cruise ships to tours to backpacking to the car rental to home rental to vacation rentals.
Many of the people that work in this industry get to work in a relatively small office and are in an environment where the office is almost completely open to the public.
To keep yourself from becoming ill from working in a closed environment, be sure to take a full day off without anything else to do. A lot of companies will require you to have at least a half-day off every single week. But that may just be because they’re more worried about overtime pay than health insurance.
A lot of the offices that I’ve worked in were also only open to the public from 5 am to 10 pm. Not only are they open to the public, but they’re also open to the public for lunch and drinks. Not only that but they’re also open to the public for a full day of work. In short, you need to be comfortable with your surroundings and not just work in a comfortable environment.
