My husband works away from home a lot. He spends many days at a time on the road at conferences. Much of these days are spent at trade show exhibits. He really enjoys his job but there are slow times during the day and that makes being away from home harder for him than it already is because he feels unproductive during those times and misses his family even more. I came up with some ways to help him feel more productive on the road. He is able to get more done because he makes better use of his time so when he is home he does not have to spend as much time at the office. It has been wonderful to have him home and present when he is not traveling instead of at the office. Here are a few of the items which help to make this possible.
- Laser Keyboard- this is so cool, it projects an image on a surface of a keyboard allowing him to type up notes and documents. This has been his biggest time saver.
- Portable Scanner- Because he receives a lot of business cards and informational brochures this portable scanner allows him to slip the documents through saving the information in files that he can transfer to his lap top. It helps reduce the paper clutter he used to have to sort back at the office.
- Powermat Charging Pad- this charging pad not only charges his phone, lap top and tablet, it also cuts clutter at his trade show exhibit.
