Every time I return home from Affiliate Summit my Facebook is lit up with people complaining of the conference flu.
Let’s be real… it’s the too little sleep, too many drinks have beaten you down flu.
That’s not to suggest that some people don’t pick up a bug at conferences. I am regularly appalled at the percentage of guys who go straight from the urinal to the exit and continue shaking hands.
Guys: wash your damn hands.
Anyhow, while there is no flu shot for the conference flu, I’ve managed to avoid it over all of these years of attending conferences.
My secret has been to mostly be back in my room and in bed by midnight, guzzle down a big bottle of water and a bottle of Gatorade, and wash my hands a lot.
