Janice Waugh is founder, publisher, and contributor to Solo Traveler, a website she conceived of based upon her own need for better information about travelling alone. Since launching the site in 2009, it has grown to a readership of over 120,000 monthly with a subscriber base of over 50,000 that eagerly awaits four mailings per month. In addition, she is the publisher of The Traveler’s Handbooks, founder of The Solo Travel Awards and, most recently, author of The Wits & Wonder Travel Course. Gathering data on the solo travel market and understanding the demographics and psychographics of solo travelers has been fundamental to the success of Solo Traveler and its clients who have chosen to be early adopters and capture a piece of the growing solo travel market. Janice has spoken at the Smithsonian Institute, the World Travel Market, TBEX, and The Social Travel Summit.
