“Anytime I’m involved with anything that’s well-received, it’s a surprise to me.” – Larry David

As an entrepreneur there are many steps that need to be taken to finally get to the actual starting point of beginning a new business. There are  times you may even forget the original inspiration why you started such an undertaking. After our recent success, I was feeling reenergized and I remembered what started the idea of Tesla Trips. I wanted to see meaningful change in sustainable transportation and to help provide more options for the consumer.

The day following our approval to begin our services in the City of Portland I was invited to a monthly meeting sponsored by Travel Portland. This event reminded me that I was among a very passionate group of business people from various backgrounds such as Katie the marketing director at BodyVox and Mike from Travelocity, among others, that  share a passion for what they do.

Later that evening following the Travel Portland event I noticed our website had received quite a bit of traffic and I was exhilarated to see the number of requests we had received for wine tours, trips to PDX, and more! This level of excitement for Tesla Trips was awesome and although we had received the City of Portland’s approval there was a little more paperwork needed to complete the process before we could officially service our clientele. This should all be finalized very soon. All of us at Tesla Trips are dedicated to delivering an unrivaled experience for our guests and are excited to get started!

After sending out some emails to potential guests, I noticed that not only was our general website traffic was up, but it was breaking records…. In addition to our announcement our allies were promoting it as well. Green Car Reports had posted an article about Tesla Trips. The story was a total surprise and the exposure was very flattering.
