In 2012 Lisette learned how to rack up millions of airline miles and hotel points using her regular household spending and travel credit card sign up bonuses. Learning how to “travel hack” has now saved her over $100K in travel costs and opened the door to amazing travel experiences.
Lisette teaches others how to earn and maximize travel rewards through her online course, Jet Set 101: Becoming a Travel Hacker. She’s also the host of the Globetrotter Lounge Podcast which won the Wanderful Award at the 2019 Bessie Awards for Women in Travel.
The Globetrotter Lounge has led to other podcasting projects, including co-hosting the Nav.it Podcast. This weekly podcast is dedicated to inspiring women to become prosperous on their own terms – elevating the way they experience the world and redefining what wealth means to them.
