Staying Connected: Managing Your Business While Traveling

Most business professionals would admit that there’s an element of jet-setting glamour to traveling for business, especially if your journeys take you to historic foreign capitals and exotic destinations. However, more experienced travelers, especially those who are responsible for running the business, may tell a somewhat different story. Frequent travel can make it difficult to stay on top of things back at the office and to deal with problems as they arise. That can quickly turn into a stressful and chaotic situation unless you have a plan for managing your work when you’re on the go.
