I just got back late last night from a long weekend away to visit our friends back in NJ with my kiddos. This weekend I am doing a quick getaway with some friends.
And next week, conference season starts.
If there is a constant in my life, it is travel.
And I love it.
But only because I make it as stress-free as possible by adding in a few perks. These must-have secrets keep travel fun and keep my energy up. Two requirements for something I need to do all of the time.
For this birthday week kick-off, I am hooking you up with a few freebies of my favorites.
Plus, if you share a travel tip in the comments, you have a chance to win a travel ring light. Perfect for making videos or doing webinars from the road.
