The future of travel publishing with Laura Bartlett, Founder of House of Coco magazine | Call from Leeds, UK

Read more

On this episode of Adventure Calls, I spoke with Laura Bartlett, the founder of House of Coco, a luxury print travel magazine sold on the newsstands in London. During a time when the world became overrun with travel Instagrammers, Laura chose to go in the opposite direction, launching a print magazine, with the goal of creating a platform that allowed her and her team to travel and live their best lives. It definitely worked. Today, Laura has over 50 creators who create content for the magazine, inspiring readers to see the world and step out of their comfort zone. 

Born in Leeds, England, Laura started a few different magazines and had an unsuccessful pitch on an episode of Dragon’s Den, the show that inspired the US show, Shark Tank, before landing big with House of Coco. She is a larger than life example of failure breeding strength, and the tenacity it takes to make it in the world of publishing today. 

In this call, we discuss the role of travel magazines in the current climate of COVID-19, and how she thinks print magazines will fare in the future, once  the world starts back up traveling again. 

Note: This next Adventure Call took place roughly four weeks ago, the world has changed yet again, and it wouldn’t be right to continue without acknowledging that. There is a second pandemic that has erupted since the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmend Aubrey and Breonna Taylor, among others. The disease of racism has always been there, and has now come to light with millions marching around the world. In March, when I realized that travel, as we knew it, would stop for a while, part of what made that chill run down my spine has nothing to do with the money and jobs that are lost. Travel opens our minds and our hearts to each other in a way that no other action can do. You meet strangers and people who don’t look like you at a time when you are not bogged down with work, or chores, and your spirit is open and ready to receive new information. “Vacation” is a trojan horse that lets light in to our fear of the ‘other’. 

In the words of Mark Twain, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness. That is what drives me and what makes me passionate about helping people explore the world. You can not generalize when you know so many specific cases. You can not stereotype all black people, all latinos, all asians, all white people, when you have seen, with your own eyes, the different ways in which all humans live, the different societies in which different people thrive. I stand with the Black Lives Matter movement and I stand with the protestors.

20. Laura Bartlett - defying the odds and daring to succeed

Read more

Laura Bartlett is a one-woman entrepreneurial whirlwind. In a world that said print journalism is dead, Laura stuck two fingers up to the status quo and founded House Of Coco, a luxury travel and fashion magazine for the "nomadic adventure seeker", of which she is also editor-in-chief. It is, quite simply, beautiful, and there's a reason it's now stocked in Harrods and Selfridges.

When you see the stunning photos of places she travels, Laura's life looks pretty great from the outside, but her career has by no means always been plain sailing. By her mid-twenties Laura had started two successful businesses and taken one to the Dragons' Den (of which more in this episode), but she then made what she thought at the time was a smart business decision that unfortunately led to the subsequent failure of her first magazine, Urban Coco which went into liquidation. Laura was, as she says, pretty broke at this point. Surely starting another magazine wasn't a good idea? Think again. 

Laura's infectious enthusiasm, can-do attitude and overwhelming positivity were really striking to me in this interview. She is not one to lie down or be crushed, even after humiliation on national television. I for one was really inspired by her and was delighted to learn that this week she has been nominated for the 'Outstanding Entrepreneur' award at the Northern Power Women Awards. Good luck Laura! 

Show notes

In this episode we discuss:

  • What Laura wanted to be when she grew up
  • Applying for her first job with no experience and landing a role as a media sales executive
  • Developing her skills in sales and advertising and getting through the ‘no’s’ to get to the ‘yes’
  • Her first business selling handbags via Facebook, and her establishment of a pop-up shop in Birmingham
  • The founding of Urban Coco, a fashion magazine distributed in Leeds, and her her subsequent appearance on Dragon’s Den
  • Resilience, coming back from a bruising experience on television and picking herself up to launch the magazine internationally on news stands the same weekend that the show aired (it was a sell-out by the way!)
  • Going to the Clothes Show Live as a media partner, investing all her money and energy into the event and losing everything on one big gamble. 
  • Starting from a point of bankruptcy to launch House Of Coco, utilising existing content and having the audacity to start a new magazine
  • Running a business without any external investment, and how to generate a profit without having to pitch to investors
  • The practicalities of running a team of 30 people remotely and Laura manages and mentors her team
  • Finding their niche in the industry as a high-end brand that is fearless, brave and honest, but being cautious in the 
  • What’s next for House of Coco, and launching the magazine in Leeds and New York in addition to London
  • Developing #TeamCoco and the #TeamCocoGang, and Laura’s aims for the future in growing a community of brand ambassadors and supporting them in their side hustles
  • The challenges of being a freelancer in the travel industry
  • Being a female leader and developing her career as a young woman in the publishing and magazine industry
  • New trends for destinations in 2019 and the team Laura has on board with different interests which give complementary views on the world
  • Self care in a world of ‘busy fools’, and having ‘Me dates’ such as a solo trip to the cinema or a massage as a reward to herself
