As sales person, I have the business trips to visit Central and East coast clients. Here’s my experience and preparation before going to the meeting. Please take a look for Up in the air. It includes of professional sales and fresh interns check-in process.
1. Business TOOL
Please don’t take too BIG luggage and try to avoid Check-in luggage. It will waste more time to check-in and wait for your luggage arrival. If you don’t have any budget concerns, I highly recommend TUMI、Samsonite、Rimowa. Or you may find your lovely luggage in Amazon .
Bose earphones would be the best choices for most of business people. You will take a full rest on flight in the quiet condition. However, you should check with manager’s schedule. It’s embarrassing if you can’t hear her/his follow-up things. Especially she/he likes to work on the plane.

2. Business Trip Overview
2-1 Before Business
- Send out Agenda to customer
- Route planning: You can consider to take Uber or Lyft if company is located in downtown. It’s more convenient and reduce the time for processing the rental cars.
- Hotel：Take San Diego as an examples. You can search Via Hotel.com, Expedia, Booking.com, etc. Or you can try Airbnb as well!
2-2 In the business trip
Call customer and let them know you are arrived in their city. It’s a reminder for tomorrow meeting as well.
2-3 After the business trip
Try to sent out the Meeting minutes in the airport when you are in the fresh memory.
3. Mind modification
You will worry about miss-flight, big snow storm, etc always. And it’s essential you should always come with good and adjustable moods. In the trip, I sometimes bring small Dumbbell and clear my mind.
4. Business trip frequently
In usual, we’ll have face to face business quarterly to discuss such as last season report, this season action plans, forecast. Here’s the sunset picture which were taken on the airplane, isn’t it beautiful?
