Shark Bites: Business Travel Tips from Daymond John

How does a shark take a bite out of travel hassles?  I recently met Daymond John, the snazzy Shark, at the Travel Goods Showcase in Las Vegas. I asked the self-made multi-millionaire how he survives life on the road.

Daymond (because we are, of course, on a first-name basis) travels about 250 days a year. Even assuming he travels only in first or business class, all of that airtime has to take a toll. To stay grounded, he follows these rules religiously:

1. "I always read my list of goals first thing in the morning and last thing before I go to sleep. That way, I can spend the day putting goals into action, and then I set myself up to dream about them during the night."

2. Also on Daymond's to-do list: A workout first thing in the morning.

3. Daymond gets even more exercise while returning telephone calls. He sets aside two hours for phone calls...which he makes while walking.

4. "I never schedule dinners after seven," he says. Good idea, Daymond. Late dinners mean a body has to work overtme on digestion into the wee hours of the night.

5. Finally, a shark on the go has to learn to say no....or better yet, no tanks.
