“Fearlessness is Boldness, they kinda live in the same house. When we can let go of our fear, we can really open up ourselves to unlimited potential.” ~ Jessica Blotter
Jessica Blotter is a journalist, speaker, advocate for the greater good, and CEO and co-founder of , the first ‘Give + Get’ hotel booking platform. What does that mean? In simple terms, it transforms travelers into a force for good that benefits communities, animals and the environment. Each $10 donation that’s made at Kind Traveler, gets you a big discount for one night at a hotel. Your donated funds then go to non-profits that help a variety of programs in communities around the world.
Moved by an experience on a trip to Belize in 2012, Jessica knew she needed to do something to give back. Combining her love for travel, sustainability, animal welfare and the desire to make a social impact, she created Kind Traveler.
I met Jessica in San Diego when we were both speaking at the Travel and Adventure Show. I knew very little about Jessica or Kind Traveler so this conversation was a wonderful exploration for me. We touched upon a number of topics including how and why she started Kind Traveler, how we can all be both better informed and more ethical in our travels and how she manages to stay grounded while running a startup.
