Meredith Calloway, Chief Visionary Officer and Co-Founder of Gifted Travel Network (GTN) is a renowned travel entrepreneur, success mindset guru, and former Wall Street analyst. With a mission to help entrepreneurs build businesses they love centered around their passion for travel, Meredith draws on her 20+ years of entrepreneurial experience, learning from mistakes and cultivating a resilient success mindset.
In 2001, Meredith left her lucrative Wall Street career to establish her own boutique travel agency, Hills of Africa Travel. Although the initial years were challenging, she persevered, determined to monetize her love for travel. Through three years of intensive learning in client attraction, marketing, branding, and running a successful solo business, Meredith transformed her travel agency into a profitable enterprise. Recognizing that many travel professionals faced similar challenges, she founded the Global Institute for Travel Entrepreneurs (GIFTE) in 2011, providing education and support to help accidental hobbyist travel agents thrive.
In 2013, Meredith co-founded GTN with Jennifer Cochrane and Vanessa McGovern to address the gaps in the host agency landscape. GTN offered comprehensive marketing, business, and mindset education in a one-stop-shop format. While running both GIFTE and GTN, Meredith decided to sunset GIFTE in 2021 to focus on GTN's mission of providing an elevated hosting experience for luxury travel advisors.
Today, Meredith is a respected thought leader, traveling worldwide to share her insights on surpassing mediocrity and achieving success in travel entrepreneurship. Her empowering speeches inspire audiences to build not only thriving businesses but also lives they truly adore, fueled by their passion for travel.
"Selling luxury is entirely mindset. It is not the mindset of "I want
to sell fancy things." It is the mindset of giving people what they want and most of the time they don't know what they want. It is up to me to tell them what they want. It is personal. One trip is not the same for all clients."
