I recently talked with Under 30 CEO on how travel can fuel inspiration and creativity. Here's an excerpt:

How do you find inspiration and creativity for your company?

My best ideas don’t come from a clichéd “ideation session” or a set time of day; they happen when I’m outside the office. So I travel. A lot, if for no other reason than to get the creative juices flowing. There’s a reason why the top floors of a building are the most expensive to occupy, why top executives have the best views of the city, and why city planners and military generals create models to stare down at: When you have a bird’s eye view of the world, it’s a lot easier to put challenges into perspective and strategize your way around obstacles. Having a bird’s eye view of the world lets you see what’s both immediately in front of you as well as what’s on the horizon. Combine that with a plane moving 500 miles an hour and a good book, and you get the perfect storm for new ideas and creativity. For inspiration, I look at companies doing great things, reading stories about successful entrepreneurs, and how everyday challenges create opportunities.
