I’m Thankful for: Google Maps

Consumer Goods High Technology Chief Innovation Officer

Just Google it! Sometimes it is the simple things that make our lives easier. 

I travel all the time, usually to new locations or ones that I visit infrequently. I am very thankful for Google Maps and the ability it gives me to travel with confidence everywhere I go. I no longer worry about finding my way. The days of traveling all over Los Angeles making sales calls using my Thomas map book are a distant memory. Now all I have to remember is to bring my car phone charger with me, as the Google app does drain the battery very quickly!
