Traveling a lot with work?

If you’re like Dr. Addie Reinhard, you can relate to the challenges of work-related travel, especially after a couple years of non existent business travel as a result of COVID-19.

Instead of trying to figure it out on her own, Dr. Reinhard put it out to her network to ask for some advice on how to best travel for work, which caught the attention of our co-hosts…so we decided to bring her back to chat on the subject!

Travel tips covered include:

  • Setting intentional time aside for yourself
  • Wake up at the same time you at home
  • Exercise!
  • Never check a suitcase
  • Focus on going deep with networking, not wide
  • If you’re tired, try power naps
  • Follow-up the meaningful conversations with a handwritten card
  • Create time outdoors in nature
  • Staying on top of the work that’s left at home (and noticing what broke!)
  • …and so much more!
