Skift Take

Silicon Valley is overrated: Gloria Bohan built Omega World Travel from bricks and mortar in the early 1970s, and she's around to tell a story about persistence and survival.

Gloria Bohan is where I would like to be when I reach age 70.

She is the founder and president of a 524-employee travel agency based in Fairfax City, Omega World Travel, which she built with her late husband, Dan.

Bohan built Omega from scratch, starting with a small office in Fredericksburg. It now bills more than $1 billion in travel and has offices from London to its headquarters in Fairfax.
