Today we offer a wide range of books, online resources, training programs for all ages and topics, a weekly podcast and a selection of greeting cards and paper products.
Wear comfortable shoes, but take along a better pair for business meetings and evenings. Leave the sneakers at home, unless you need them for exercising while on the road.
Pack enough underwear and socks or panty hose for each day; don't rely on having the time to rinse out small items at night.
Wear or pack your suit jacket. A business jacket worn without the matching pants or skirt while traveling is okay.
Make sure you have everything you need in your cosmetic or shaving kit in containers of three ounces or less; unlike leisure travelers, business travelers often can't afford the time to buy items they forgot.
If exercise is part of your daily routine, pack your swimsuit or workout gear.
Pack a collapsible umbrella.
What to wear on a plane? Both men and women may be tempted to wear their not-so-best jeans and sneakers for the flight, especially since they know they'll be squeezed into a tight seat and could run into delays. By dressing in business casual for travel (yes, even dress jeans with a jacket works), if a checked bag is lost, you won't have to arrive at a meeting looking as if you've just come from mowing the lawn or shopping for groceries. Airlines cater to business travelers; dress the part and you may find you get an added measure of service.
