Travelling for business can be tiring and stressful at times, what with all those long flights, jet lag, endless hotel stays and numerous meetings. Sometimes surviving a business trip is all about packing the right things so you can travel in greater comfort. Here are some of the things that top entrepreneurs take with them when on the road, with a few suggestions for other things you can do to make your trips more enjoyable.
Top entrepreneurs keep things simple
