With college back in session, busy season for Operation Beautiful events is officially in full swing!
I travel around the country giving motivational presentations to middle and high schools, colleges, church groups, and businesses about Operation Beautiful. Iâ€™ve got eight events on the calendar for the next three months, so Iâ€™ll be doing a lot of traveling!
Hello, airplanes and hotels and rental cars. I missed you over the summer!
I love to do presentations but I do find the whole traveling process to be a bit stressful. The worst part is packing and unpacking. I always feel like Iâ€™m forgetting something and it takes at least an hour. Considering that I have several back-to-back events this season, this simply wonâ€™t work. So, I asked on Facebook what other people put in their Business Travel Go Bag.
A quick trip to Target later, I had everything I need for stress-free business travel!
Plastic bag #1 contains all of my non-liquid toiletries and other miscellaneous items, such as:
Hair fubbies + bobby pins
Contact case + extra contacts
Clif bar and gum
Plastic bag #2 contains all my liquid items (under 3 ounces), including:
Shampoo and conditioner
Normally, I try to use all-natural beauty products. I used little plastic bottles so I can bring my normal shampoo and conditioner, but it was just easier to buy travel sizes of other conventional products to use in my go bag.
I also bought extras of my basic makeup items so I donâ€™t have to worry about transferring stuff out of my make-up bag every time.
And last, but not least, I made a list of all the other stuff I need to pack at the last minute, like clothes and my cell phone charger. I plan to stash this list in the front pocket of my suitcase so I can just check it every time I need to pack.
There you have it â€“ stress-free (okay, reduced stress) business travel. All because of an awesome Go Bag!
