Analysis skills gained from being a Real Estate Sales and Management has allowed Ibsen to breakdown ideas and plans from fellow Co-founders into actionable steps to ensure efficiency.
  • Despite the vast difference between Real Estate and Travel industry, past project management experiences on creating systems to make company operates better are the same. Running day to day operations requires actionable metrics to effectively evaluate business decisions. Sharing the same passion of building a business in Travel Industry as his fellow Co-founders, Ibsen strongly believes that “if we don’t fix small problems on the get go, we can’t focus on the big picture”. Same applies to when traveling, if one avoids gritty details of planning a trip, problem will arise during the travel. Getting hands dirty to get the job done is necessary no matter how hard the work is.
