Travel agencies are dead – or so they say.
I was in college when I walked into a travel agency, asked for a brochure, and walked out with a job selling honeymoons. I was an unmarried college student. Great. I took the job and sold romance as a single lady. The challenge wasn’t just lack of experience, it was convincing every single person I met of my value.
Fast forward to six years later – the same courage that it took to explain my worth over and over again led me to opening my very own travel agency – one that is very much alive and thriving. You guessed it, Honeymoons and all!
Sometimes you just have to have the guts to look people in the eyes and tell them why you’re worth it.
