I’m writing to you today from Washington DC where I’m on my speaking tour.
Speaking helps you get more clients, fill your live events and it makes you more successful with your sponsors.
Public speaking also gives you access to travel and amazing adventures.
Here are some of my favorite travel tips
Roll It Baby
When you pack your suitcase, roll your clothes rather than folding them. You’ll be able to pack much more stuff.
If you want shorter lines and faster security check at the airport, apply for TSA Pre. You pass by everyone in the Disneyland-style lines and you get to keep your shoes on.
I’m only 4’11” tall, so I can’t even reach the overhead bins on the plane. I always check my bags at the gate. I retrieve my luggage at baggage claim and, since most people are carrying their luggage on board, there usually isn’t a long wait there.
Back Everything Up
Keep both digital and physical copies of your photos, passport, visas, driver’s license, birth certificate, health insurance, receipts and important phone numbers ready to go in case of an emergency. I use the LastPass app to securely store my Internet passwords.
Talk to the Locals
When my Wi-Fi didn’t work in Paris, I had to ask the locals for directions. This led to many wonderful conversations about where to go, what to eat and I learned secrets that only the locals know. Some of the Parisians even walked me to my travel destination.
