Off to the Wild West

Greetings and Happy Tuesday!  This week I have my very first solo client meeting business trip.  I went to Des Moines with my boss in May and to Charlotte for an office visit 10 days ago, but on this trip, I will do client meetings on my own with a sales rep...  I am excited and nervous at the same time as I will be the 'expert' that the sales rep brings along to the meeting.  Gulp.

I flew into Austin last night.  I have 3 client meetings today and a conference this evening.  Then I fly to Dallas Wednesday morning, do another meeting there, and then fly home on Thursday morning.  It's going to be a whirlwind trip, and I imagine I am going to be super duper tired when I return on Thursday, but I know this is a big step in my career.  My boss has traveled a ton this year and I need to be able to take some of those trips off his hands, so this is an important first step.

Wish me luck!  I won't have much internet access (besides my phone) nor much downtime as my schedule will be similar to my Charlotte trip (minus the pay-for-it-in-the-morning-pineapple-potion), so the lights will be off on this space the rest of this week, and I won't have time to comment/read blogs. 

Wish me luck!  Hopefully I return next week and am able to say that the client meetings all went really well...   Have a great week everyone!

Good luck, Lisa!! I know you'll do amazing. :) I can't believe how much you're traveling with your job lately -- that's great though! Hope you can get good nights of sleep between these crazy days!

I know you will do great!! You are so passionate and knowledgeable about your job - I'm sure you're going to do amazingly solo! When I'm alone on business I think I actually do better because I'm not worried about bosses watching me and I'm more confident.
I really hope you're feeling better - maybe the Texas heat will zap whatever is brewing! Fingers crossed!
