A Business Trip Survival Guide for #Careerlions

For some jobs, business trips are essential and you will have to fly out at least every so often. Video-conferencing, despite all the technological improvements, just doesn’t always cut it.

Books I’m bringing to Iceland and the US

When you’re reading this, I am enjoying a long-awaited trip to Iceland and the United States. To me, a trip isn’t complete without bringing some books.

This time, I thought I might pay some more attention to making a little home away from home and here are my tips.

Bart and I have been loving our holiday to Hawaii. I won tickets last year to fly to any destination with Delta, which turned out to even be in Business class! This is the moment I started dreaming and the whole world felt like it was within reach. We had some “hard” choices to make on how to best use this unbelievable prize I got to win with work.
