    048 - A completely different business model for travel agents

    048 - A completely different business model for travel agents

    Our world is never going to be the same, and that is especially true about the travel industry, and travel agents specifically. The way we think about and run our business has GOT to change if we want to continue helping our clients have amazing vacations.
    But if you keep doing things in your business the way you've always done them, and the way EVERYONE has done them, for decades and decades, your business won't survive.
    Elizabeth de Quillacq, from Souvenir and Far, shares the unconventional way she started and runs her agency, that not only prevented her from losing money during covid, but has allowed her business to thrive. It's a model we can all learn a lot from.

If there's enough interest I can see if she'd be willing to do that for us. :-)

    045 - It's time to start treating your travel business like a real business

    Are you treating your travel business like a real business? Do you see yourself as a true professional, with a business? 
    If you've been treating your business as anything but a legitimate business that deserves to be respected and taken seriously, that needs to change, and it needs to change now. 

    In this episode, I talk about why that has to change, and I give you some tough love about things you're going to have to do differently if you want your business to succeed in the new, post covid world. 
    Here are the links to the resources mentioned in this episode: I have 2 episodes I've recorded about charging fees. Episode 7, and Episode 28. Who the F am I to be a Coach, by Megan Jo Wilson is a great read (and quick at just over 100 pages) even if you're not trying to be a coach.
