Did you see the movie “The Lincoln Lawyer” with Matthew McConaughey? If you haven’t yet, don’t bother – it wasn’t that good. The only inventive thing about it was that the lawyer didn’t have an office. Instead, he worked out of a nice big Lincoln Town Car while being driven all over the city by his chauffer. Apparently, this was an example of art imitating life since there are actually plenty of executives who already have rolling offices. In fact, according to the New York Times, the first vehicle that was designed for use as a mobile office was rolled out in 1935. Today, CEOs and other VIPs are more likely to convert and customize a vehicle such as the Cadillac Escalade. They may have it upgraded with worksurfaces, technology, and even exercise equipment. Being on the go while they work allows these executives to get more done in more ways than one. For many, it isn’t just about getting from point A to point B. It’s the time they can spend alone in the back of the vehicle thinking that makes the rolling office priceless. They’re fully connected via wireless, high speed internet, but they can still be unreachable if they choose.
If you could pick a vehicle to turn into an office space, what would it be and why? What office items would you add?
