Meetings & Conventions: Short Cuts November 1999
Cuts:On the SpotHow often are you on the road, and how does travel affect
your personal life?
"I'm traveling about 10 days a month and can't always
plan it as well as I'd like. My social life has to work around a
sometimes random travel schedule. It's difficult, but it gives me a
chance to see places and things I might not otherwise get to see.
There are pluses and minuses, I guess.""I'm on the road about 30 to 40 days a year. There are
lots of things you miss back home: family reunions, birthdays, any
general social event that's going on. In this business, something
could come up, and you'll have to cancel."

"I'm on the road probably about 30 days a year, a lot in
spring and fall. It's hard because I have three children. My
younger ones are OK, but my oldest is 8, and she's at a point where
she wants me home. You have to make a lot of arrangements around
the kids, and that's always a challenge."
