Congratulations to the Newest Sole Sister!

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

The search is finally over!

Back in July, I announced that Sole Sisters was growing into a community of women travelers who are passionate about making travel happen for themselves and for others. And there was 1 position open: The Big Sole Sister who would help build that community.

Out of 22 entries, there emerged 3 awesome finalists: Madz, Jen and Lauren. That made the decision extremely difficult. I couldn't choose from these driven, beautiful, talented women with unique abilities that could contribute to the Sole Sisterhood. 

So I asked for your help and for your vote.

And for 3 weeks we all worked together in a task that will significantly change the way Sole Sisters can get  you closer to your travel dreams. And now we have the newest Sole Sister!

I'm so excited to meet Madz later this week, do an intro video and photo shoot with her and get to know her. I know she will be an awesome collaborator because it shows in her desire to chase after her dreams

Thanks again for voting and for making that effort in improving this blog and the travel community! Moving forward, Sole Sisters will stop being just a travel documentary. Our goal is to make it a platform where we can all exchange ideas on how to make travel happen and inspire each other to take that step. 

And that's what Madz and I will be working on. You can continue to make your voice heard and help us by answering this short survey form on how we can start doing things better around here. It is only 4 questions and won't take too much of your time, I promise. Madz and I will reward you with a video next week for making that effort. This really means a lot to us.

One more thing. Okay don't close the window just yet. We're working on creating a Sole Sisters Manifesto where we can share our ideas on how we make travel happen for ourselves and for others. If you want to contribute 1 or 2 sentences, we'll be happy to hear it. Just send it over to solesisters(dot)weare(at)gmail(dot)com or leave it in the comments section below. 

Thanks again! We owe you big time! Watch out for a bigger, better, wickeder Sole Sisterhood!

Muchas gracias,
Sole Sister Lois
