Counting down the minutes until it’s time to hit the road for not only the RT Convention, but a legal convention right afterward. So, my mind is filled with thoughts about becoming a Reluctant Road Warrior and I decided to offer some helpful and humorous advice.
- Now they have got to be kidding when they say to avoid underwire bras! How do they expect us to keep our gravity-challenged D-cups from total collapse?
- You left your husband at the house? The more important question is, “Do you have the tickets”? Good, then just send him a postcard when you get there! JK! Actually, I’m crazed making just this kind of list right now since I’ve got to run from one conference to another and both require totally different things! HELP!
- Then go out and buy some new things when you realize what you planned to wear doesn’t fit anymore. The diet is obviously not going well.
Even more important, make sure you don’t hand the business card that says “SEX AND THE SOUTH BEACH CHICAS” to the head of a Fortune 100 company looking for legal representation.
Actually a lot of people ask if my clients and colleagues know about my dual life. Most do and most think it’s great.
- Given the current trend in global warming, this will accomplish nothing, but at least you can say you had a reason for why you packed a parka for Houston, TX.
More importantly, when you get into a taxi in Detroit and ask to go the General Motors building and the cabbie doesn’t know who they are, GET OUT OF THE CAR! (This actually happened to me on one business trip!)
Cool new places are lots of fun, but it’s even more fun to meet new people. I love this at conferences, but I must confess that it took me quite some time to work past my shyness (Yes, I hear all the laughter from my friends, but I was terribly shy at one time. Now I force that away and am thankful that I do since I meet so many nice people that way.)
Rolling helps save space and avoid wrinkles. That helpful tip is from my totally absent Fashion Friday consultant Sammie. What can I say? It’s senior year.
Hope these tips helped a little. Maybe you have some of your own to contribute.
