Many of us who workshift travel a lot, perhaps more than we’d like. Although I had the pleasure of a summer pretty much free from business travel, things are starting to ramp up again for fall. And while I love the opportunity to meet with clients and colleagues live and in person, I hate the […]

I’m writing this on a flight from Philadelphia to Boston. Luckily, it’s so early in the morning that my flight is ridiculously empty. I have an entire exit row to myself.
