That HappyLuxe products are popular with frequent flyers should come as no surprise, given that a pilot, Leah Murakami, created them. (Our Story) Prior to licensing her designs to HappyLuxe, she sold them to her own customers and peers.
We caught up with one of her long-term customers to find out why he never leaves for the airport without his HappyLuxe travel accessories, and get some of his tips for managing his constant travels.
HappyLuxe: First off, Gerald, how often are you on the road or in the air?
Gerald: My company requires me to travel about 50% of the year. We have partners, vendors, and customers all over the world, so in the course of a year, I typically visit between 15 to 25 countries. I go to China regularly, and also Brazil, South Africa, South Korea, India, and most of the European countries.
HL: That is a lot of time in away from home, in airplanes and hotels.
G: It is – that is why I have a system!
HL: Will you break it down for us?
G: Of course. My goal is always to arrive at each destination ready to work, so being comfortable and sleeping on the plane is vital. I also only bring what is absolutely necessary. Here is what I do:
“I have traveled with Leah’s products for years because they help me travel the way l like to: in comfort, with as little baggage as possible, while keeping my valuables safe. Then, when I get home, I can throw everything in the washer and get ready for my next trip!”
Thanks to Gerald for these great tips!
