DO YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL!?! Do you like unique business models?! Amazing. If you said yes to at least one of those, then today’s podcast interview is gonna make your week. Today we’re talking to the CEO of Scott’s Cheap Flights, Brian Kidwell.
If you haven’t heard about Scott’s Cheap Flights, we'd honestly be shocked. They’re a subscription email list company that sends out emails to their subscribers every month finding incredible deals on cheap flights.
Brian was a digital nomad who had always been interested in entrepreneurship and travel. After backpacking through Europe after college, Brian started a website focused on building a travel community where he would sell a bundle of deals on travel services. One thing led to another and Brian teamed up with Scott Keyes - the author at the time of a cheap travel ebook, and the two of them ended up founding Scott’s Cheap Flights which now has 30+ employees and around 1 million subscribers and growing.
Today we talk to Brian all about building Scott’s Cheap Flights. We ask him the ins and outs of an email list subscription program and how it works, building his team and company culture, how they navigated the pandemic in 2020 as a business built around travel, what he’s learned working with a business partner, and so much more. This conversation is not only fascinating and so cool, but it’s also incredibly inspiring as a business owner to think outside the box, be innovative, build a company mission and culture of honor and value, and so much more. I know I’m walking away ready to do more and do better and I know without a doubt you’ll feel the same.
