Interview w/ Carolyn Pearson of @Maiden_Voyage! #61

We had a fabulous chat with the woman behind Maiden-Voyage today, Carolyn Pearson!

Carolyn Pearson knew there had to be a better way for women traveling alone to experience the journey.

Women today travel far more than 20 years ago. It has become routine to many and screaming for improved experiences.  Imagine. You’re planning an upcoming trip solo. You’ve never been there before.  Wouldn’t it be ideal to have REAL LIFE insights? How about being able to log on to a website and see others in the same location looking for complimentary meetings, a new friend, insights beyond their present horizons… etc?  It is definitely one of those services/communities you can’t remember what you did before you had it!

Carolyn Pearson desired this for herself, her friends, and so many more. Discover the passion and drive enabling her to create a global network.

She shares her biggest business obstacle, one most of us DEFINITELY relate to, and even a snapshot of the biz books she loves!

About Carolyn:
Carolyn Pearson is the founder and CEO of the global community for female business travellers, making their trips both SAFE & SOCIAL. It was on a lonely business trip to LA, that Carolyn Pearson found herself dining alone in yet another restaurant and decided to create a social network to enable women around the world to connect for dinner as an alternative to work and room service. After appearing on CNN and in the New York Times, the site grew quickly and now has over 7,000 members in over 60 countries. Since its launch has expanded to include recommended “Female Friendly Hotels” and a global ambassador network of travel savvy ladies who are there to support incoming business travellers.  Carolyn left her successful corporate IT role to run full-time and now spends her time traveling the world meeting like-minded inspirational women, sourcing the best business hotels and writing for a number of business and travel publications
