"A business trip is not about sleep," said Mr. Stevens, who spends the wee hours in his hotel's lobby or bar, mapping his strategy for the next day. "Nobody comes out of any business meeting and says, 'You did best today because you look freshest.' Clients couldn't care less if I am fresh as a daisy. They just want to know that when I or my team comes to the table, we've got a big idea."
Sleep deprivation eventually catches up with you:

Hi, Fellow!I like your blog!
I just came across your blog and wanted to
drop you a note telling you how impressed I was with
the information you have posted here.
I have a women in business

Come and check it out if you get time :-)
Best regards!
