Sometimes, when things are hard, a question that arises, is WHY….
Why have I chosen to do something. In this instance, a question I am hearing often right now is: “Why am I still here in travel?” “Why do I still remain on the roller coater of emotions as a pandemic surrounds me?”
If you have asked yourself this or many other “Why” questions, you are not alone. Sometimes I too ask myself this when having a tough day. I answer myself with my love and passion for the industry, travel and adventures we can have exploring this incredible planet we live on and my passion for helping others create memories of their own experiences as well.
Over the last few years, I have shared my journey with you. How my team and I have worked through the struggles, challenges, and moments we faced. As a team and also as individuals.
In this episode, I asked one of my long term clients share her story. She has ridden the same roller coaster, lost thousands of dollars worth of bookings, but decided that this was not the end of her travel experience as an advisor.
It is a journey of discovery, experience, up-skilling and working ON herself and her business to come through this time. A story of hope and what you can do too.
Kerstin has been part of the Travel Agent Achievers community since its inception and to watch her overcome the challenges has been an honor and privilege.I have seen her grow and flourish. Riding the wins and achievements as well as walking with her through the challenging times.
Her big heart for travel and wellness has helped her pivot and cope at times during the pandemic.
Even though her business ground to a halt, when the shock and main activity subsided, she did not let emotion and challenges bring her down. She asked herself - "Why" but then also followed with "What".
She has worked on what resonated with her and has taken action working ON her business. Given the greatest gift of time to get organised.
Business can be challenging. No one ever told you that having your own business would be easy. But with the right support and guidance, you will come through this time stronger and more resilient than ever.
You can be the Travel Advisor that clients are looking to turn to. One that is an expert, knowledgeable and ready to take care of them.
Kerstin is a member of the Achievers Mastermind as well. Her progress, implementation and training have been remarkable. I know that with the solid foundations she is putting in place, her business will soar when we are once again allowed to travel.
