Work Anywhere, Anytime

One of the most frequently asked questions I get asked is, “what does a typical day look like for you?” And my answer is always that no two days are ever the same. My lifestyle is very on-the-go and that means I often work remotely as well. From my home office to coffee shops, airports, airplanes and Soho House, there’s no place I can’t turn into a productive work space. When it comes to work, I’ve learned to adapt to my environment and part of that is having the right devices and tools to get the job done efficiently!

I’ve recently been trying out the Asus ZenBook UX430 14″ Laptop. I love it’s sleek, sharp design and thin, compact 14″ size. It’s super easy for me to carry or slip into a bag and head out for the day. When it’s in my bag, it doesn’t even feel like there’s a computer inside.

While the Asus ZenBook is lightweight and easy to take with me around town, it doesn’t skimp on power or space, with its 2.5GHz i5 processor, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 256GB solid state drive. Not to mention, the ZenBook boasts 9 hours of battery life. I do a lot of photo and video editing on my computer, which requires a good amount of power, but also a sharp screen, which the ZenBook has (with its 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution screen).

Naturally, the ZenBook is definitely great for travel too, so if you’re looking for a great laptop to take abroad with you, then this one is a great option.

Even though the ZenBook is small and inconspicuous, it still accommodates a full-size backlit keyboard.

The Asus ZenBook UX430 14″ Laptop is available at Best Buy Canada in-store and online at

Best Buy Canada and Asus recently partnered together to create a fun video, featuring Canadian Olympic Gold Medalist, Jon Montgomery sending people on a surprise mission to receive some of the latest and greatest Asus products. It’s pretty hilarious to watch it all unfold. I’m not sure what I would have done in the situation, haha! What about you? Watch the video below and let me know!

    Interesting post! I’ve been looking for an alternative for my Macbook Pro mainly because I want to install Windows-only software on it for music. I don’t want to install Windows on my Mac, though.

    I admire people that can work anywhere! I have such a hard time, I get so distracted so easily.
