Don't get fat. I gained 15 pounds in the first 3 months of starting . I recommend eating big breakfasts at the hotel and lighter dinners. Frequent the gym at your hotel. It's there for a reason!

If your firm has a status matching program, take it. It will allow you to get premium coach with no additional cost. Carry on tip also spot on. I use travel pro crew. Very light and steady. Affordable

Early check-ins for all flights. Organize you points and credit cards now! And really research for a good carry-on. I like the spinners that I can stroll sideways through the airport.

Oh! And take daily walks around the hotel. I come from a bigger metro city so I miss the walking a lot.

Get yourself a portable battery pack for your iphone! Mophie makes a good one. But theres lots. My most embarrassing moment was when I was replying to a Director right before take off. It went dead 😱. I spent the entire flight like a pissed little child

MOMS please help. I was flexing my new mocktail skills for my pregnant and sober curious girls. I made a delicious concoction with Pom and fresh lime shaken w/ ice, poured over a mix of Kin Euphorics Lightwave, & Avec Hibiscus. Everyone asked for 2 or 3 because, yay, it's non-alcoholic and feels like a fancy bev. My friend asks for the recipe afterwards. I tell her and she panics, telling me pregnant people can't drink Kin. What is going to happen? Did I hurt her or the baby?? I am not a mom yet
