So, a few days ago I was getting a little nostalgic, thinking about my youth and days that held in them more ideas than responsibilities. It didn’t take long before I got to thinking of an old friend from college and so I wrote her a Merry Christmas email. Bebe does things I can’t do. She ...

Finding Ego

I took a quick trip across the pond this week. It was a last-minute jaunt to the city Dickens wrote about – a four day break between jobs and a sure fire way to peek back at myself when I was younger, independent, courageous and even a bit feisty. Huh, Zoe? All that is embodied ...

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 ...

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 ...

Blondes have more fun!

About a year ago I became a blonde. Well, sorta blonde – brown with some highlights is the technical description, I guess. It all started when I was out to lunch with my mom in my hometown and we ran into a bunch of teachers and none of them recognized me. Over the years, I ...

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 ...

“Like Minded Individuals”

I first heard this little phrase while working at Lehigh several years ago. I oversaw the communications team and we were writing a little blurb on some alumni travel program and the writer wrote that alums going on this, what was it, boat tour of the Danube, would enjoy themselves because they be among “like ...
