Quite the buzz these days

Discretionary income has been quite the buzz word these days. According to investopedia.com, discretionary income is described as "the amount of an individual's income that is left for spending, investing or saving after taxes and personal necessities (such as food, shelter, and clothing) have been paid… includes money spent on luxury items, vacations and non-essential goods and services."

However, there are times when you just have to travel - especially if you are a business owner.
