Claire Soares shares her journey growing up in Virginia, working at a Fortune 500 Company, learning about food and wine on her business trips, and then identifying the underserved market for Black luxury travel. She shares her process of founding her company as a side hustle and then leaving her corporate job to build “Up In the Air Life” to a 7- figure business serving the Black Luxury Travel niche. She explains the importance for new entrepreneurs of creating a substantial financial runway and the power of using lifestyle arbitrage by living in less expensive countries.

Claire then shares some of her trip offerings, itineraries, and highlights ranging from super-yacht parties to black-tie events in wine vineyards. She explains how she creates 5-star luxury trips to Africa, Asia and Europe without sacrificing cultural and historical substance or immersion in the local communities.
