Strategic goals for 2022
As the world begins to reopen to travel again, we will invest in our team, our customers and our platform as we continue to build more incredible experiences for travelers and more robust tools for our hosts and operators.

travel more accessible and safer for all, and we'll achieve this by providing a seamless experience for topic experts, creators and businesses to plan, sell and host once-in-a-lifetime group experiences around the globe with their audiences.
Lessons learned over the last year
Community and togetherness is so important during a time of crisis, and fostering connections among our customers was critical to helping us through the challenging times of the pandemic.
Through active listening, we were able to identify pain points and build a plan to support through technology, new processes and ongoing communication with our team. Along these lines, I am so proud of the way our team reacted with tenacity and perseverance
in the face of adversity to overcome it.
The team is everything and we can't wait to continue building and expanding our platform as we work to bring the world closer together through travel.
No matter your space, whether it's beauty
and lifestyle, active movement, photography, gaming, body positivity, LGBTQ+ travel, writing, entertainment, and so forth, we all had to navigate change over this last year.
Our platform made it possible for creators, entrepreneurs and topic
experts to generate a new revenue stream and give people something exciting to look forward to. A much welcome change after a challenging year full of hardship and disconnect.
