Gillian Morris, CEO and Founder of Hitlist #bizoba (Summer Special)
Planning your next vacation, #bizoba ballers? If not, by the end of this episode, we think you will be.
In this summer special, we talk to CEO and Founder Gillian Morris about her remarkable journey toward building Hitlist, a travel company focused on helping you turn the trip of your dreams into an affordable reality by filtering cheap flights on flexible dates to droolworthy destinations. If the saying is true, that "traveling is the only thing you spend money on that makes you richer,” Hitlist is on track to make everyone a millionaire.
Tune in to hear Gillian share about the high school choir trip that sparked her wanderlust, the post-college journalism gig that led to an odyssey around East and Central Asia, and the hackathon that took her from Istanbul back to the United States and onto her biggest trip: into entrepreneurship. Riding out the turbulence of startup life and flying higher every day toward making Hitlist the next travel-tech success story, Gillian Morris is very much in the business of being awesome.

#bizobabullets of wisdom from this episode:
1. Everyone experiences turbulence on the journey to finding and doing meaningful work.
2. “Seize the opportunity to travel” because it’ll make you a healthier, happier, more creative person
3. This one isn’t original, but J.R.R. Tolkien had it right: “Not all who wander are lost"
