So, what does an Independent, Home-based Travel Agent really do?

Every day is an adventure. Especially for an Independent, Home-based Travel Agent. My day actually started 16 hours ago, when I went to work at my full-time job. After completing my 8 hour shift, I came home to begin working on setting up some Black Friday travel deals. And, let me tell you, there are some AWESOME Black Friday deals out there this year!

I have spent the last several hours scouring my suppliers websites, and reviewing the multiples of emails I have been receiving the past several days for the deals I want to put together. I’m looking at posting the deals I’m looking at on my website and my Facebook page later today.

In addition to all that, I’m also continuing the training courses that I’m currently enrolled in with the travel agent academy and the travel institute, and will be starting a new course on Windjammer in St. Lucia later today. As my host agency likes to say “The more we learn, the more we earn!”

Of course, there are always the trips that I am putting together for clients, as well as the research I am doing for a WW2 Pacific Battlesites tour that I will be putting together in the next 1 1/2 to 2 years.

Every day is an adventure. An exciting adventure. And, I wouldn’t change a thing.
