This weekend was a whirlwind of travel for me and I am so thankful that I am getting better at pre-packing so there is less stress and less of a chance that I will forget something behind.
When traveling for business, there are certain must-have accessories that I need to ensure that I am productive and efficient on the road.
One of the great things about having a home-based business is that I am able to work for almost anywhere. Over the past year, there are a few accessories that I have come to love to make my work and travel easier.
5 Must-Have Business Accessories
1 – Travel Essential Oil Diffuser
I have shared before how much I love essential oils and use them regularly in our household for various reasons. Diffusing them is something that is done regularly and having a travel diffuser has made a huge difference. Usually I take lavender (to relax) and sweet orange (for clarity and to fight off germs) with me while traveling.
Here’s one of my favorites to travel with and available on Amazon.
2 – Powerbank
A powerbank is a portable charger that you can slip in your purse or briefcase and quickly give your electronics a charge. I rely heavily on my smartphone when traveling so having a powerbank for it is necessary to ensure I’m able to check email, update my social media accounts, use my GPS and reach my family for “I love yous” and “I miss yous”. These, also, come in very handy when spending your days in conference sessions.
This is the powerbank that I own (also available on Amazon) and use for long-distance traveling. It’s bulky but I’m able to charge multiple devices throughout the day while in sessions or during long layovers.
3 – USB Charger
When traveling for business and staying in a hotel, the reality of just how many items I have that require charging hits home. And I can never seem to find enough plugs in convenient locations without unplugging a lamp or alarm clock. That’s why I love the intelliARMOR 4-Port USB Charger. I can charge up to 4 items at once using one device. It’s super light-weight and easy to pack. It, also, comes in handy in the airport so I’m not hogging ALL the plugs in between flights.

4 – A Mobile Hotspot
While most places offer free wi-fi, due to the confidential nature of some of the projects that I work on having a mobile hotspot is not just beneficial, but necessary. I have, also, learned not to depend on hotel wi-fi for connectivity. My mobile hotspot allows me to connect quickly and securely to the Internet.

5 – Trackers
I will admit that I can be a little scatterbrained at times. Especially when stressed or overly tired – both that seem to happen more when I travel. Having gadgets that will track my essential items (keys, cell phone, laptop, etc) if I misplace them are awesome and have helped to save me so much time and stress.

I need all of this. All. Of. It. Even the oils, because sleeping on business trips is very difficult for me. But if they smell good, that's good enough to.

I'm the opposite. There's something about a pitch black room and knowing that there are no little people depending on me to be alert and aware. The most awesome sleep! I'm always concerned I'll oversleep for an early morning meeting or session.
