6 Ways How Travelling is a Passport to Being a Better Entrepreneur

How Travelling is a Passport to Being a Better Entrepreneur




Travelling to exotic places is a passport not just to 'finding yourself' but to being a more effective entrepreneur, according to a new infographic.


Those who explore exotic places return with a greater capability to lead rather than manage and have a boost in resilience and confidence, it claims.


It outlines six benefits, which also includes a strengthening of economic skills, as frequent travellers are often forced to strategize on a budget and get creative in finding the best deals.


The infographic was created by travel website Expedia, and includes research that 94 per cent of business leaders believe that travel experience results in a competitive advantage in the workplace.


This is due to travellers being more effective at communicating their vision and forming relationships with a range of individuals and cultures.


Picking up a second language on-the-go also helps to boost brain power.


The exposure to new ways of life was also found to promote cultural and business insights in globetrotters, who can witness a vast array of practices.


The infographic quotes philosopher Immanuel Kant, who theorized that travelling helps you recognize shortcomings in your own culture.


Finally, making decisions at every step of a journey, whether in a group or solo, was found to help travellers be more decisive and refine leadership skills.


Encountering new scenarios that are outside normal comfort zones can also lead to individuals becoming more creative with problem solving.


And acquiring all these attributes can result in a person inspiring their own team to go above and beyond the call of duty in the workplace.

  2. I completely agree! I am always saying, how do you know your place in the world if you haven't explored it?? I feel that it not only boosts character but confidence and creativity! It's sad seeing people who don't get out and see the world!

    1. You are right.

      These people who never goes out from their comfort zones, became short-minded and most of the time culture-shocked. And sometimes I pity them because it might not be their fault that they haven't travelled yet.

  5. I absolutely agree with everything in this. Travel has definitely helped shape the person I am and taught me so many things that you just can't learn in a classroom. The main one that stuck out to me is being resilient. Travel doesn't always go as planned and you have to learn to roll with the punches!

  9. Although I have never put travelling in this context of being a better entrepreneur, I can't agree more with your article. I think that generally, travelling improves us overall. We are a better person from the opportunities, experiences and sights outside of our comfort zone.

    1. Travel will help you to discover many things, and that includes the discover of cheaper resources which you can use on your future ventures, when you decide to settle down. Many entrepreneurs are former travelers, and any business persons needs to travel and explore their boundaries in order to grown their business.
