A large part of my life is traveling (for business and pleasure) and I travel as much as I can, but as a business owner it can be difficult to manage the business while on the road, and I don’t have the option of closing my business while I’m away. Over the last four months I have spent two weeks in Costa Rica, a week away over Christmas and New Year’s, and two weeks in Africa.
Many event planners run their event planning career from locations other than their home office or city. While it can be exciting and fun to travel and plan events in other locations, there are ways to improve the quality of your travel and keep up with your event planning career obligations too.
How To Run Your Event Planning Career From Anywhere
In today’s episode of EventPlanning BlueprintTV, I share three tips to help you run your event planning career from anywhere so you can enjoy traveling and stay productive; and three more travel tips that I live by below the video.
In addition to the three tips shared in today’s video, here are three more must-do travel tips for event planners that travel:
- 1.Take a carry-on only. Considering how much I travel it’s shocking how much luggage I (used to!) take. Now, I roll my clothes into a carry-on suitcase and do laundry at my destination when I need to. By taking only a carry-on, this also helps me get in and out of airports faster.
- 2.Drink a lot of water. Staying hydrated while traveling is essential, so I take a reusable water bottle with me and fill it at the airport before I board my flight (there are always water fountains by the bathrooms). My rule of thumb is to drink at least one cup of water per each hour of travel. This helps me hit the ground running and keeps me alert once I arrive (I keep snacks in my bag too, just in case!).
- 3.Get moving! Go for a walk, a run, a swim or to the gym. Exercising has many health benefits but when traveling it’s important to keep your body moving so you maintain your energy for meetings and events.
Now I’d love to hear from you.
