Traffic is insane around the Bay Area. To be quite honest, traffic is crazy around any big city. When you travel for work, you’re more likely to fly into these big cities than you are a small town. I mean, how often would a high powered executive need to go to a small town for work related purposes? Unless you’re buying up property for a farm as an executive for a food company, it’s highly unlikely. The amount of time you spend in traffic for work can add up over the years and you may feel like you’re missing out on important work or personal time. There’s one simple way to save some of that travel time when you’re working, and that’s by using a car service.

For some people, just getting through the day is a full time job. They may have things going on in their personal or professional lives that make it difficult to stay the course and continue working towards their goal in life. In some cases, they may have an issue with staying motivated without someone pushing them or some kind of incentive. Unfortunately, inspiring ourselves to “keep on keeping on” and maintaining that motivation in hard times can be one of the most difficult things we do as adults. There’s no shame in admitting we’re having a difficult time staying on track. Everyone goes through it, and the stronger ones are those that come out on the other side, having been made better by the adversity they overcame to get there.

Doing the same thing, day in and day out, can get tedious. It can make a job you love turn into a job you hate. If you work in an office, it’s almost guaranteed that you will spend a large amount of your time there doing the same thing over and over, every single day. While there may not be any way around that, there are ways that you can streamline those everyday menial office tasks.

Well-established companies and start-up companies alike will require travel from everyone to their entry-level employees all the way up to their CEOs for some reason or another. Whether they’re going out of the country to woo a potential client or to discuss a merger with a competitor, they’re going to need the support and assistance from the company they work for to ensure the business trips they’re sent on go off without any problems. This is just one reason why you should consider establishing a travel program for your office. While the thought of this could be quite daunting, especially when you are expecting to accommodate a lot of travel needs, it doesn’t necessarily have to be more trouble than it’s worth.

Traveling for work has become a necessity in most industries. Whether you’re going across the country for a meeting with colleagues at a satellite office or to woo a potential client, you’re probably going to incur a lot of expenses along the way. Some companies provide these work travelers with a company credit card so they don’t have to worry about keeping track of expenses. With a company card, the expenses are already there on the statement with details so there really isn’t anything you would need to do to keep up with those costs. However, not every company has the ability to provide their employees with a company credit card for all of the trips they may end up taking. This is when you will have to track your spending and expenses out of pocket to ensure you are fully reimbursed once you get back to your home office.

Depending on how you look at it, business travel can be the worst part or the best part of your job. When you have a family, it can be difficult leaving them for several days in a row, often missing out on important milestones in your children’s lives. On the other hand, if you like traveling across the country, or even the world, then it can be something that you actually look forward to. No matter how you look at it, it can still be improved upon thanks to the miracle of modern technology.

Spring has sprung which means the time has come to start planning out your garden. While most people tend to think about corn, lettuce, and tomatoes for their garden, might we recommend adding a few herbs and spices to the mix? Not only are they great for adding a special touch to your homemade meals, but they can also be used in a pretty unique and refreshing way: spring cocktails. Now that the weather is warmer, there is really no better way to end a long day of work than by sitting outside with a frosty beverage. You can also offer a signature drink for guests at a party or wedding by including those herbs and spices fresh out of your garden.

If you live in the corporate world, you’ve probably been to your fair share of business dinners. This is especially true when you travel out of town for work. Since you’re not in your usual building with the conference rooms you’re used to for meetings, the hosting company will usually take you out to dinner to talk shop. Discussing business over a delicious meal is a great way to break the ice and encourage conversation to flow more freely and more comfortably than it would in a sterile office. If you happen to be the host company and are expecting potential clients or executives from a different location to visit here in San Francisco, it’s a good idea to know the best restaurants.
