I’m going to launch another newsletter that will be devoted to business travel tips and will add you to that when it goes live, here are 5 tips that I want to share right now - let me know if you like them:
When you go to Seoul make sure you have Citymapper
installed. Google Maps does not work at all. Citymapper is flawless in this city. Google Maps on the other hand works beyond amazing in Tokyo.
: I picked up a Google Pixel 1 phone so I could use Google Fi
which works amazing - 1 SIM card to rule them all - its expensive at $50USD per 3GB including voice and text but its handy as if I miss a phone call it transcribes it and sends it to my Google Chat I can also receive International text messages via Hangouts - now I’m trying to figure a way to hack it into my iPhone because honestly I just can’t do Android. (See last item in this newsletter)
I collect tons of name cards, so I scan them into Full Contact
right away – which then finds all the social media info of the contact and adds it into my address book automatically. I pay for the full version and I have the app and a desktop app as well. Lifesaver for organizing contacts and then there is a great plug-in for Gmail that syncs up profile pics and everything. Best product for business travelers.
(Full disclosure, Full Contact is a partner at RISE.)
