An Interview With The CEO Of Chateau' Relaxo Episode 35
 I recently listened to the Little Twigbird episode of the Mike O'Meara show where they showcased a travel bit by comedian Nate Bargatze. It seems that Nate's wife had no idea how traveling and catching flights worked. This made me think about how fortunate I am to have a wife that "gets it" when it comes to travel, airports, packing, schedules etc . If you've spent any time listening to the podcast or reading the blog, you know that our family compound is called Chateau' Relaxo. The reason is very simple, when we built this house we knew it would be hard for anyone to leave. So much so, that we've actually picked up a new resident in the last 12 months.  Thanks for listening, safe travels and enjoy your day.

The Evolution Of Business Travel (Part 2) Episode 22
 Being recorded in the beautiful Hampton Inn, Thomasville, GA. Our last episode, The Evolution Of Business Travel,  covered some of the basics and got us to this point. Today it's the "Travel Trinity" planes, hotels and smartphones. Traveling by plane has truly become "Greyhound in the sky". I grew up with an uncle that was a pilot, and my Father-In_Law was also a pilot. I grew up in the world of flying on standby. That meant a jacket or dress depending on your gender coupled with polished shoes, and the rest of the patrons held close to those guidelines as well. Now when you fly, you'll be bombarded with those wearing pajamas and those that believe their ticket entitles them to, wear most anything.
