Carol-Margolis-Smart-Women-Travel and were founded by Carol Margolis, a well-traveled consultant, businesswoman and international speaker who has collected countless pearls of travel wisdom over many years. Carol raised two children while being on the road the majority of their childhood, with some of those years as a single parent. She jumped in a plane or car each week with two bags, a load of guilt and very little in the way of a support system. She is sharing her pearls of wisdom learned over many millions of miles to create such a support system for fellow traveling women to ease that load of guilt and help them discover the joy that travel can bring.

Carol is a frequent radio and television guest, writer for various magazines, speaker and author.  She also blogs at the popular, Voices of the Business Traveler.

Carol leads a corporate bootcamp entitled “Business Travel Success” which prepares employees for proficient travels and addresses how to deal with life at home while away.  Carol also offers meeting planners with tip sheets, checklists, travel discounts and more – great for sending out to conference attendees before they travel to make their journeys easier.
