Five years ago, I was sitting in our apartment in Turkey on a vacation high when a work email caught my eye. Our family had spent a week exploring and eating our way through Istanbul. We taught our kids the history of the Byzantine empire while Istanbul Not Constantinople played in our heads. We were 24 hours away from leaving to sail the Turkish Blue Coast for five days and I was enjoying a rare moment with a strong wifi connection to scroll through my phone.
When you own your own business, it can be hard to take a vacation. Mobile devices can feel like a blessing and a curse. On one hand, we rely on them to help us fully explore the places we’re visiting but they can also keep you tethered to work. We’re constantly challenged to find the balance between the two as we live and survive in today’s digital age.
But when I saw the subject “Opportunity to join Corning Gorilla Glass on upcoming trip?” I was glad to have my phone.
I admit that I didn’t know too much about Corning when I accepted the invitation. I knew they were a glass company but my desire to learn more made me say yes without hesitation.
