Wow.  What a wonderful world we live in, where a simple Iowa girl from a humble Iowa family can relocate to San Francisco, get a job with an innovative ecommerce platform company, and ascend all the way to the lofty position of blogging for Carrying On with the likes of Tony D’Astolfo and Mike Daly!  May my contributions here be an inspiration for young girls everywhere.  Yes, little Suri, Shiloh, and Apple – you, too, could someday stand in these high heels!

In all seriousness, I am thrilled to have joined Rearden Nation, where the excitement and energy about travel innovation is so high.  And I’m glad to be working in our industry at this time in history, where, if we’re open to it, we can every single day witness mind-blowing new ideas and perspectives as they’re being developed in front of our eyes.  Scary some days, yes.  But fun, too.

I look forward to writing (and more important, conversing) with you about the emerging trends that are transforming companies’ best roads to retain employees, reduce costs, control spend, keep travelers and data safe, and work more productively.

Since we’re just getting to know each other, I’ll keep it nice and light today. (Besides, the super-heroically artistic band OK Go just released their new experimental “interactive choreography HTML 5 video” on the Google Chrome browser this week, and I want to get back to watching it over and over and over.)

I’ll be back next week and thereafter with some thoughts on compelling ideas, emerging concepts and practical advice for what to be doing about the future today.   I’ve got a book or two I’m excited to share, too. Join the conversation. Let’s think big together.  Let’s celebrate the journey!
