Surviving Business Travel
Welcome reader to Business Travel Help at Last!
Life is complicated and hectic enough: getting to work on time; managing our meeting schedules so that we don't miss any; making our deadlines; negotiating with Management on those deadlines not possible to make; managing work and home life with some degree of success. Just when you think you might have a handle on everything this week here comes the wrench - You're going on a business trip.
The thought first excites you and then the panic hits: What will I be missing? Will I be able to get that meeting scheduled, that proposal written and that spreadsheet done while I'm undoubtedly sleeping on the airport floor in an endless line of delays and cancellations? Then a miracle happens and you actually get on that plane and you finally arrive at your hotel. It's 10:00PM local time. Is your proposal ready? How about that PowerPoint Presentation? Did you remember your spreadsheet? It was due before you left. Will you be ready tomorrow or will it be an all nighter? What was the reason for getting a room with a bed in it again?
From surviving TSA and the airport to meeting deadlines to maybe even getting a little ahead while on the road are all topics that the articles in "Surviving Business Travel" will cover. From links to the latest in TSA rules to staying focused and productive. Maybe I'll even throw in the stores with the best prices on travel sized items and the best hotels to stay in that really care about business travelers. You know the ones with the giant breakfast - sorry Days Inn, dried up rolls are out!
Business Travel is stressful enough I'll be needing to add laughter in the mix because if you can't laugh at your own misery, well... you at least need to learn the great art of sarcasm! Humor will get you through and maybe even teach a lesson or two!
Again, welcome to Surviving Business Travel! Enjoy your stay!
