Rob Karp, CEO & Founder of MilesAhead, a luxury travel concierge, founded the company when he was just a sophomore in high school. Today he’s a 20-year old rising senior at Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration. 

At 14, Rob developed a passion for the travel industry and a drive for delivering a best-in-class customer experience. Self-taught, Rob developed his airline knowledge by learning about points and began helping family and friends with their travel. What began as a hobby and one man operation throughout his high school years developed into MilesAhead. The company grew exponentially during Rob’s freshman year at Cornell University, where he met most of today's employees at the School of Hotel Administration. Today the company is powered by more than ten dedicated and passionate employees located across the country who sold $7 million in travel in 2017. In 2018, MilesAhead is on pace to generate revenues in excess of $1,000,000. Not bad for a company whose founder started with $600 he earned from refereeing soccer matches. 

Since hiring his first employee during the fall of 2015, Rob has grown MilesAhead into a ten-plus person organization, employing part-time college students and full-time “adults.” Rob and his team have visited over 300 hotels since 2016, spanning from Italy to Bora Bora to Japan, and utilize their time off from school to travel the world and deliver that first-hand knowledge to their 500+ clients. Rob has been featured in various news outlets, including CBS TV, Fortune, Forbes, Bloomberg TV and various Ivy League and Cornell publications. Named one of Travel + Leisure’s International Rising Stars in 2017, Rob plans to grow MilesAhead after college and follow his dream of creating the world’s best travel advisor.

In this episode Rob talks about MilesAhead, the travel biz, and his one way ticket to Florence, Italy!

Rob is just one of the superb guests featured on The One Way Ticket Show, where Host Steven Shalowitz explores with his guests where they'd go if given a one way ticket, no coming back! Destinations may be in the past, present, future, real, imaginary or a state of mind.

Natalie Glebova - author, motivational speaker, entrepreneur, and public figure, has been intensely focused on empowerment coaching and gender equality activism for the last decade. A former Miss Universe (2005) and UN Women's advocate, she is very passionate about encouraging young people to build their self-confidence and reach their biggest goals.

A graduate of IT Management from Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada with a Bachelor of Commerce, she also has a certificate in Nutrition and Sport from Washington State University. Natalie has been actively involved in charity work ever since she moved to Thailand in 2006, and was a spokesperson for world-wide and local organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Operation Smile, SOI Dog Foundation, UNDP, WWF, and Freeland Org.

Her first book Healthy Happy Beautiful became a best-seller in Thailand between 2006 and 2007, offering principles which highlight some fundamental steps towards taking care of our bodies through nutrition, exercise and a healthy mind.

Using principles she's learned from world renowned coaches such as Tony Robbins and Simon Sinek who she considers her personal role models, Natalie became successful in many areas of her life including career, relationships and personal development.

As an avid entrepreneur, she co-founded an online startup - Travelbook™ with her husband Dean, a travel-sharing platform that connects travelers through their experiences (travelbook.com). Her most recent business venture is EMPOWERED - a series of workshops, training courses and seminars to teach young minds valuable skills for living an accomplished and fulfilling life, such as building self-confidence, mastering public speaking, goal-setting, negotiating effectively, and positive thinking (EmpoweredClub.com).

Being a Russian immigrant in Canada when she was just 13 years old, Natalie overcame many obstacles and low self-esteem as she was growing up in a new country and adapting to a new culture. It was with this strong attitude and winning mindset which she learned from her young life, that she found the audacity to set big goals and break through barriers - becoming the first immigrant ever to obtain the Miss Canada and the Miss Universe titles.

Now, as a mother to her daughter Maya, Natalie's mission is to help young people become happy and self -assured. With her latest book, I am Winning - A Guide to Personal Empowerment, Natalie's hope is to ignite the spark of courage in her readers towards becoming the best versions of themselves.

In this episode Natalie shares tips for being the best one can be, plus her one way ticket to the very first Burning Man in 1986!
