We are running a full tilt watch; sleep-deprived, jet lagged, & in a constant rush to make meetings, applying makeup or running an electric shaver over their five o'clock shadows in the backseats of taxis.
Savviest business travelers know how to make EVERY meeting with ease.
We dont look rumbled, wrinkled, or bleary-eyed.
Know how to have good time^^
But since traffic is very much out of our control, do your best to remove it from your planning
Live in the never check a bag unless you have to camp!!.
So how does she stay pressed and sharp when living out of a single carry-on bag?
BUY wrinkle-free clothes; as many as you can
As crazy as it sounds;
airports are an excellent place to network, even by accident, don’t get caught looking like you are dressed for the beach instead of the board room.
Don't dress too casually when traveling; you never know who you will meet!!!!
Not Preparing For The Worst
In reality, these things happen and you are better to plan for them.
I always assume that my flight is going to be delayed so I make sure my phone and computer are always fully charged,” I pack my own meals and always have healthy snacks like almonds, Rx bars, crackers and a bottle of water.”
Being able to communicate once you get to your destination is paramount!!
When your company's book your room, make sure they're booking in the right place,"; tell your preferences and priorities. Make sure they know where your meetings are, too.;)
if they're booking with a card that's not in your name, check with the hotel ahead of time to find out if you need authorization
The first step is knowing your options,
Ask the locals about their favorite spots,talk to your bartenders and servers about where they like to go
Don't lose your receipts! Bring a folder and put every receipt in it, and take a photo of each one with your phone
Not only should you be checking company travel policies for preferred hotels and airlines, but you should learn what fees and expenses are able to be reimbursed by the company. otherwise you may end up paying for expenses you didn’t plan to cover.
Don’t wait until last minute to book your flight. Not only is the flight more expensive, but your seating options may be limited
Traveling internationally, make sure to bring a power adapter for all your electronics.
Call your cell provider ahead of time to check the rates
Take a picture of your parking info -so you find your car when you return, Otherwise you wander aimlessly.
