No, this is not a joke. You might laugh it off now, but later you will realize the importance of a pen. A businessman without a pen just does not make sense. You are going to need to jot down things any time anywhere.
On a business trip, you are likely to meet new people and have other business opportunities. So never forget to keep your business cards. Also, the language barrier can pose a problem, so you can simply introduce yourself using the business card.
An envelope is as important is a pen. It is one of the most useful items for a business man. Business folks have to keep a record of work related receipts as well as hotel, food and transport bills to keep track of all the financial transactions. To keep these bills and receipts safe, one needs to have envelops with then at all times.
“All work no play makes Jack a dull boy”. Be sure to pack few entertainment items for your business trip. For the journey, keep a book or catch up on a serial you have been meaning to watch. On business trips, one is likely to have long idle times. Without your family, boredom and loneliness can get to you, so to avoid that, pack things that will keep you occupied.
Clothes are the most essential items to pack without a doubt. For a business trip, the outlook and attire become all the more important. For some functions, you need serious business suits while for other times, one needs casual clothing too. I would suggest that you pack a suit or suits (in case of an extended trip), a few pants and several shirts.
Don’t forget to take foreign currency with you. Without the local currency, you will be in trouble. Get the currency before you land at your destination. Also, keep two credit cards in case one of it does not work.
These items have to be obviously packed for a business trip. But sometimes, one forgets to take along the most obvious things. Without your gadgets, you will be clueless and without the chargers, the gadgets will be useless. So don’t forget these important items.
