When most people think of traveling for speaking gigs they think it's glamorous: you travel first class, visit a new city, stay in a nice hotel, etc. And sometimes it is fun and exciting - and other times it is exhausting. Like when the airlines loses your luggage, or when your flight is delayed and you have to sleep in the airport or a sketchy motel because nothing else is available! I've been in all those scenarios, the glamorous and the not-so-glamorous. On episode 73 I'm sharing what I've learned about the ins and outs of travel. Today I'll talk about what you should do before you travel, what to do when you book your travel and what to do during the actual travel. Whether you're already a road warrior or you're prepping for your first out-of-town gig, you'll learn plenty on this edition of The Speaker Lab! THE FINER DETAILS OF THIS SHOW
