January 31 – February 14, I spent two glorious weeks on a working vacation as a client intensive retreat in Huatulco, Mexico. Some people may think that is an oxymoron, but it worked well for me, my business didn’t suffer, I made money and had a ton of time for playing. I was at the Secrets Resort, which is gorgeous. The town is only 10,000 people so it isn’t touristy yet and is safe to visit and walk around.

Business travel isn’t part of your job. It’s a lifestyle.™
By the time I got off the plane at almost 1:00pm EST, I felt like someone had taken a hammer to my head while there was a wild animal eating its way out of my stomach, and, of course, I was supposed to drive directly to work at a site visit with my manager. In that moment, I knew that if I was going to survive in this business, I had to get it together. My travel, my nutrition, my exercise, my sleep, and my work had to be very focused.. There could be no more Marcey-induced spontaneity if I was going to have any hope to not end up a fat, frazzled business traveler that looked ten years older than I was, and burned out after two years on the road.
I’ve been staring at my computer for five hours, with no break except to fix dinner and eat in front of my screen.
I get up again at 3:30am and bust out another three hours.
I used to work this way?
