Business Trip Packing List

I’m all about creating a Business Trip Packing List. Half the time I never know what to bring on business trips1 I never want to pack too much, but I also don’t want to not bring enough! As you know – I co-hosted with my bestie Vera Sweeney – our Permission to Hustle Retreat 3 weeks ago! We had 40 incredible women with us for 5 days at sea with Carnival Cruise… we spent the entire time learning, sharing, talking, exploring and relaxing. It was truly a phenomenal way to work – it was definitely business + fun! We had a fun Business Trip Packing List that we made sure everyone had on board!

Business Trip Packing List

It was a life-changing retreat for me because I realized that this is something I want to do in my life. i want to bring women together. I want to create events that will inspire and motivate women to hustle. I want to be someone who helps women go after their dreams! It really changed my life and my outlook on where I want to go and what I want to be!

We wanted to give each women a fabulous time and as we were doing this, we put together an amazing gift bag for everyone! Each item included was an item we were so excited to share with the ladies! We wanted to give you a peek at what was inside of our gift bags this year. We’ve actually had women asking us if they could purchase a gift bag!! That’s how amazing they were!!
