In honor of the new Plantronics Voyager Legend headset, Road Warriorette will be featuring some sponsored posts on behalf of Plantronics and has been compensated for her contributions.
Thanks to everyone who entered to win the Plantronics Voyager Legend! Our winner, chosen by random.org, was number 1, Jeffrey, who said that his favorite way to combine his work life with his personal life on business trips is to bring his family with him. Sounds like a good plan! Some of my other favorites:
From Robert: Whenever I travel for work, I look for a small local theatre company to see a show. It helps me wind down.
From Roger: It may sound selfish, but on longer trips, if there isn’t an ‘official’ dinner with customers/partners I skip the excess, shop-talk, forced dinner with colleagues and just do room service and a movie. I like the expense account feasts as much as the next guy, but a bit of quiet ‘alone time’ can do wonders to restore ones sanity on a long trip.
From Richard: I have my kids research the city I am going to and they tell me where to go spend my down time. I send pics and Skype them from those places.
And of course, video calls, phone calls, and texts to the loved ones at home!
A big thanks to the sponsor, Plantronics, for this great contest.
