In 2010 I started a blog about a relatively obscure topic, while working in a cubicle for a major bank- pretty depressed after years of "reductions in force" and was pretty confident I never wanted my boss' job. The blog took off and less than a year later I left Morgan Stanley.. headed straight for JFK and went to Tokyo on a solo trip to figure out what my path forward would be.
Today we moved into our new HQ in Flatiron, NYC- an entire floor filled with creativity and aviation geek goodness- like our new Facebook Live studio with chairs from the Concorde (which I sadly never got to fly). We are 15 employees strong and our blog posts reach 3.5 million unique people a month. People stop me in airports and thank me for helping them travel more and save money. I have the best job in the world I want to thank every single person who has high-fived me along the way and been supportive of this crazy dream! ✈✈
