Why You Should Travel Before Starting Your Next Job

The party’s over, I show up at the new job. 

Take a break, you deserve it!  You will not look back in 10 years and think, “Thank God I started the new job a week earlier, it made all the difference in my career and financials.” Traveling is a perfect use for Facebook, so see below for the “how to” guide on documenting your travels through Zuckerberg’s little site, to the delight and amusement of your friends.

Day 1 – Thursday sailing in the San Francisco bay on a brand new 31’ Beneatau.  Conditions could not have been better, 70 degrees, sunny, and 10 knots of breeze!
