Miss Know It All,
Okay I guess I’m weird. I have a boss who travels a lot and wants me to come along. I am married with kids at home. I really don’t want to do this. How would you handle this?
If you weren’t told that this was part of your job when you interviewed, then you have every right to say you won’t go. But only you know the work dynamic. It is a matter of life or death whether you travel or not? In other words, what would be you doing that couldn’t be done by someone else?
I know celebrities that hire people JUST to travel with them. Suggest that option. It’s wouldn’t be a full time job and therefore they would save money in the long run and you would save your sanity.
