Are you ready for the life as a Cat Adjuster or road warrior?

By Rob Britton @ AmericanWay

The life of a road warrior can be hard, not only on the traveler but also on his or her family. Experienced business travelers explain how they MAINTAIN THE PERSONAL-PROFESSIONAL BALANCE.

Late on a Monday night, road warrior Natasha Engan gets off the plane at Chicago O’Hare International Airport and drives her rental car southwest on I-55, heading 135 miles to Bloomington, Ill.

She’s a vice president of sales for a major technology ­company. She’ll be in meetings the next morning, back on a plane to O’Hare, then down to Dallas. Three nights later, she’ll head home to her kids, Samantha, 6, and Bennett, 4.

“I do [trips like] that almost every week of the year,” she says. “I’m in sales, and my customers are all over.”

Her husband, Irwin Schwartz, is also a road warrior. He’s a lawyer focused on business litigation and dispute resolution, and his clients are almost always a long way from his office. He’s gone 30 to 40 percent of weeknights, all year. “Natasha and I try not to be away at the same time,” he says, “but it happens.”

Their parents and other family are nowhere close, so how do they do it? Sure, they have great helpers — “tag-team nannies,” Schwartz calls them — but balancing home and work life is a tall order.
