A Clear PassSo you can wiz through the line at airport security on your way to the next road show presentationhttp://www.clearme.com/?gclid=CKbKtN_B0KUCFRRqgwodrjBxlQ4. Something really expensive for your spouseMake sure it’s not something that needs to be plugged in. After all the crap your spouse has put up with and tales about “just wait till the exit” , you’ll need to keep your best allies in the game. Might as well buy a chew toy for the pup , too.5. An upgraded Linkedin AccountCongratulations! You now have joined the 500+ Club and are ready for the Bigs.6. Two tickets to “Death of a Salesman”It’s so hard to be humble, but not after watching this 1949 Arthur Miller classic7.

A business card readerIf you don’t come back home every night with someone’s business card, you’re not doing something right. What’s more, don’t waste your time typing in all that information that’s likely to change soon anyway. 9. A PayPal accountWhile starting your company, you’ll need to find something to do to make money. Consulting, writing online articles, working with industry or gathering coupons might get you through and you’ll be paid with online credits. At this point, go back to #1 on this list.10 . A New White Shirt and Power TieYou will need it after spilling coffee from Starbucks on your shirt while reading the Wall Street Journal.Happy Holidays.
I'd like a weeks sleep, but I'd take a solid 10 hours.
