How to Create a Portable Office

1- Laptop

The #1 Item on the list is a Chromebook or Ipad. Depending on what you need as far as size & functionality. I use both my according to what I’m doing at that moment.


2- Portable Laptop Desk

You might need this for comfort, a portable laptop desk. It would fit right in your tote or laptop bag, super helpful!

3- Wi-Fi

Of course, to obtain internet access you will need a good wi-fi connection, that’s a must-have. I receive my Wi-fi services from a local cable company, there aren’t many options here. You can use whatever works best for you as far as service and price go.

4- Portable Ring Light

On to #3 which is a portable ring light. When you’re on a video call or if you’re taking pics for your business you will need really good lighting. I also have a small clip-on ring light for my cell phone, it’s so practical and useful!
