Chadricks Everette always knew he never quite fit in to the corporate citizen mold. He had no idea that being a self-starter would land him as a travel entrepreneur and founder of Dipaways, a travel company planning epic trips for fun-seekers wanting adventure, connection, and growth.

He’s kind of a wonder kid, and he’s always been had an enterprising spirit. As a teenager, Chadricks started a national anti-smoking campaign and raised nearly $1 million to protect teens from the tobacco industry. More recently, he started Dipaways after leaving a marketing career to help others travel the world, and he started as a travel entrepreneur with Travel Noire.

He now scouts all the top spots in a location to create a curated travel experience for his guests. As he put it, the itineraries are often “inspiring, imaginative, and handcrafted.”  He has two current trips available to Bali, Indonesia and the Amalfi Coast, Italy. There’s one in development to Costa Rica.
