If you are new to business travel, you may be wondering what to pack for your first trip. There are certain items that are guaranteed to make your business trip go better. You might not realize how critical these items are until you forget to pack one of them. We asked experienced traveler Andrea Graziani, CMO of DUFL, to share items five items that every entrepreneur must pack for business travel.
- External Battery: Pack an external battery for all your electronic devices. Entrepreneurs are always plugged in and therefore always need to be plugged in :).
- Healthy Snacks: Remeber to pack power bars or other healthy snacks to keep blood sugar levels regulated and cognitive thinking on point.
- Wireless Headphones: You have too many cords to pack already. Make things a bit easier to find in your bag minus the tangled cords by packing wireless headphones.
- Hand Sanitizer: Hand sanitizer spray and/or airborne as no entrepreneur has time to get sick!
- Tablet: Pack a tablet or lighter weight laptop to reduce the weight of your bag when you travel.
