Taking time to Celebrate the WINS
Do you take the time to acknowledge your progress in your business?
You get a new client - Whoo Hoo!
You double your commission from previous months - YAY!
You reconnected with customers, by sending a newsletter, email, personal note - Great job!
As small business owners, it is often just a tick off the to do list and keep going. So, I am going to challenge you to think about all the things you have accomplished and celebrate those as you move forward. This is Episode 50! We are celebrating that.
6 Reasons why Strategy & Planning is Essential for Travel Businesses too.
Lately I have had business owners ask me if we 'should' be doing the latest, greatest tactic plus everything else. Whilst, it can be exciting to work like this, in my experience, it isn’t sustainable and can lead to overwhelm.
I also work with business owners that have a vision, a plan and experience growth. BUT - they know that a plan can be amended or adjusted when the timing is right.
This week, I share with you 6 reasons WHY we need a plan and strategy IF we want our business to move forward.

How to assess your Cashflow to keep your travel business afloat
When you own a business, money is crucial to survive. Tracking the money coming into the business and also assessing our expenses is key.
Why do we track this? Because in travel, you may have a client book now, travel in a few months and you don't get the commission until after they leave. This ultimately says you need to look at your cash on hand and prepare for the future.
I wanted to discuss cashflow as business starts to pick up. Helping you get organised and prepared for your future!
