The weekly How I Got Here podcast talks to those behind the success stories in travel and transportation, hosted by PhocusWire's Kevin May and David Litwak at Mozio.

    63. Noah Brodsky of Travel + Leisure

    The formation of Travel + Leisure Co. in January this year marked an important milestone in the career trajectory of its president Noah Brodsky.
    The new organization, which came about after Wyndham Destinations acquired the Travel + Leisure brand for $100 million, is now a multi-purpose group with a media arm (Travel + Leisure), membership club, timeshare and new online travel agency in the guise of BookTandL.
    It's 20 years on from when Brodsky talked his way into a restaurant manager job in Hawaii for Four Seasons Hotels - the start of a succession of positions at Starwood and then Wyndham Hotel Group.
    He even had a short, eight-month stint in 2013 at a then-still fairly new WeWork.
    Brodsky's experience, from the operational to the strategic elements of a business, is helping form the new strategy for Travel + Leisure, as he explains when appearing as the latest guest on How I Got Here.

    62. Joah Spearman of Localeur

    A common thread in Joah Searman's origin story is one of countering adversity.
    Localeur was born in 2013 with a mission to help people discover and share the best local places to "eat, drink and play" in destinations around the world.
    A tough market to crack (there have been many brands that have tried and failed along the way), Spearman's commitment to the cause along the way has seen the company survive and evolve over the intervening eight years.
    The company has raised (only) a modest $6 million in funding - in part due to a strategy to grow on its own terms but equally, as he explains, when the time has come to seek investment he has faced the same reaction from the financial world as other black tech founders.
    He joins us as the latest guest on How I Got Here.
