How do you know if your collection of frequent-flier miles borders on addiction? Kathleen Mojas, a clinical psychologist in Beverly Hills, California, points out these symptoms:
- Are you booking long detours that take away from time spent with your family?
- Are you spending money you don't have to collect points?
- Are you buying things just to get the miles?
These could be signs it's time to ground the airline obsession--and get back to running your business.
