That first business trip can be so intimidating! What to wear, how to pack it, what toiletries are necessary, surviving long and uncomfortable flights…. So many potential issues! For first trip, five years ago, I was terrified. Starting a new job at a new company is scary enough, but add traveling cross-country to that and I was a nervous wreck. Did I bring the right clothes? What’s it like, renting a car? What if I get sick? What if I get lonely and depressed because I miss my new husband?
Now that I’ve been on the road for five years, I am rarely anxious before a trip. But others are going on their first trip all the time! My goal is to help those people have smooth, efficient, and productive trips. Due to numerous requests, I have put together a page full of tips for the first time business traveler. It is a work in progress, so I will continue to add to it. Check it out, and if you see something that I need to add, please let me know!!
Readers, what were you the most anxious about for your first business trip?
