Okay, I got a lot of texts and email and even some voicemails saying I left you hanging! Hey, Zoe….what happened at the gate? So, I thought you may have been worn out by my tale so I spared you the last leg. Upon returning to the gate we, we, we……waited. I still hadn't gotten ...

Homecoming

I was in Denver this week for what was my last business trip with my firm. I resigned a few weeks ago because I’m starting a new job with a large insurance company. Job is very similar to current job – running around the country trying to get people to talk to me about investments ...

Lessons from the Gym Floor

I haven’t always been a female corporate traveler. I started my career in non-profits and then academia and I buttressed my professional life with an aerobics career. I can thank my friend Ginie for taking me under her wing and spurring me on to become a real live leader of “power hour.” See, all aerobics ...

I took one of those online Facebook quizzes the other day and got “dolphin.” That’s right, my inner wild animal is the dolphin. I don’t know about you, but dolphin doesn’t quite scream “Female Corporate Traveler” to me. More like, “Friendly Female Flipper.” And just to rub salt in it, female dolphins are known as ...

So today’s blog follows a proven, sure-fire blogging technique that is bound to win me dozens and dozens of new readers. The Female Corporate Traveler’s Top ...

A Leading Lady

Today I took the Jenkintown local downtown to enjoy a trip down Memory Lane with my first “real” boss, one who hired me straight out of college and taught me a myriad of lessons, the most important of which had to do with leadership. That sounds kinda heavy and anyone who knew us back then wouldn’t ...

TL;DR

Tommy checked in today with a provocative email that basically said, “Check out Preqin’s report on high-level SWFs.” Hmmm. That seems a little odd. Why is the financial database that reports on alternative asset classes writing about senior level Single White Females? Are more of them rising to the top of hedge fund management? Are ...

Why I Don’t Carry the Chair

So I had this little dialogue last weekend with some girlfriends where, bottom line, they think I’m some prima donna because my 6’ 1 inch husband and 6’ son carry my beach chair onto the beach. Uh, that’s high maintenance? I’ve met high maintenance and that’s not it. High maintenance doesn’t work. She doesn’t clean. She ...
