Love This Podcast!!!

This review is long overdue. I have been listening to this show for months and love it. I am a home based advisor and work alone. I have no associates or employees which can be isolating. So, I really appreciate the connection I feel from this podcast. Thank you both so much for all of the news, updates and sharing of your general thoughts and struggles. I relate to so much of what you share and appreciate it so much!! This is really my favorite industry podcast. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. I hope to be able to thank you both in person some day. (I am a TPI agent too.) Best wishes to you both.

A Must for all Travel Pros

The TIN Lounge has become a solid part of my Thursday morning ritual. Korrine and Theresa are such a joy to tune in with and they have so much knowledgeable information to share. Every travel pro should be listening to keep up on all the ever-changing industry news (I promise - this podcast is WAY more fun than your inbox). Thanks so much Theresa and Korrine for sharing this wonderful podcast with your fellow travel colleagues!

TIN Lounge ladies are a joy to listen to

I love listening to Korrine and Theresa opine about the latest travel news. As a busy Travel Advisor, I don’t have time to read every article so I look forward to the gems they discuss.
