Life as a Corporate Gypsy: My Own Personal Pipedream

As Pipedream’s resident road warrior, I happily accept a lifestyle either loved or loathed by my peers. I spend countless hours in airports, weeks in hotels, and endless hours traversing the country in rental cars. To some, all the money in the world couldn’t possibly compensate for a few nights away from home, but for me, travel keeps life exciting and fresh.

The purpose of racking up all those airline miles is to present Pipedream to a national audience. While on the road, I work with retailers and distributors to foster brand recognition, coordinate events, and educate sales staff on the ins-and-outs of our product lines. From target markets to pleasure product materials to body understanding, I’m responsible for sending our customers away with a plethora of knowledge. Though increasing numbers is an obvious end goal, I aim for each presentation to contain more than just a sales pitch. The best part of my job is inspiring passion for sensual health and wellness.

Life on the road is nothing and everything that one might expect. Roaming brand new cities filled with wonderful places to eat, beautiful natural sights, and smiling customers keeps my spirits high and thirsty for my next business trip. There are, of course, the missed flight connections, lost luggage, and other perils of travel, but that’s why life on the road is the best kind of teacher. The more you leave, the more you can learn.
