I am working hard at not going on the road as much in 2009 as the last 20 months have been rather exhausting. Between the planning of my two wedding events in 2007, the two events, one in Montpeyroux France and the other in San Francisco, plus the extended renovations in my community to 90 homes, plus my own home's expansion, those months have been an enormous toll on my body, and my mind.
In many ways, it has been a learning experience. First, I truly do work from anywhere. My business has grown dramatically in scope and size. Our work output only goes from great to greater heights and the time I spend away from home allows me to pursue my other passion, wine and food as I can always find a great place to find both.
But with 2009 only a few days away, it's time to take stock of what the first quarter has in store:
January 4-8 San Francisco for MacWorld
January 8-11 Las Vegas for CES
January 25 a trip to New York City for meetings
February 2-4 Miami Florida TMC's Internet Telephony and 4G Conferences
February 10-11 New York City Jeff Pulver's Social Media Summit
February 15-19 Barcelona for the Mobile World Congress*
March 3-5 Burlingame, CA for eComm 2009
March 15-21 Decouverte du Rhone, Rhone Valley, France (and likely a few more days on both ends)
So much for traveling less... :-(
