I am somewhat of a road warrior, where I am in my car a lot. Personally, I travel by airline a lot less for business now being in a startup with an eye on the budget. Technology is an equalizer here. Web applications, mobile apps and the internet on my smartphone and my iPad provide me with the business tools to get work done. Frequent flyers for business have an equal need to remain productive when mobile.
In my own experience I found that life on a plane is not that difficult, rather, it’s the planning, scheduling and work in between that can get our of hand. Here are a few notable resources for frequent flying business people to help become more efficient when not ‘wheel up’.
