Heather Coffee Chat
This is an emotional one guys. Heather is taking a step back from TPT as she's now doing virtual school with her littles. So we decided to process and share the news on the pod.
This ep has a few crying spells and, we even came up with some great industry ideas along the way.
Mindset with Korrine Johnson
On this ep I'm chatting with Korrine Johnson about mindset, flow, and trusting your gut in your business. We're encouraging you to stop grieving 2020, and start getting intentional for the path ahead of you.
You may know Korrine from Journeys Travel, her travel agency; from Travel Biz Boss, where you can get some sweet templates; from the TIN Lounge, a travel news podcast with co-host Theresa Chu-Bermudez ; or as part of the Refresh Squad!

Love the honesty and great advice
I’m always happy to see a new episode in my feed. After 6+ years in the business, it has been so rewarding to hear other professionals approach the ups and downs as pragmatically as I try to do. It is so rare to hear a podcast where there isn’t always a spin on reality to try to make it seem rosier than it is but instead a nitty gritty “here’s how we see it” and “this is where we screwed up” and “this is what has worked best to navigate this”. Thanks to both Katie and Heather.
Rona Listening MUST for TAs!!!
So I’ve gone back and listened from the beginning and especially when the current climate is taken into consideration their honesty and professional sharing is GOLD !
Thanks for being willing to spend valuable time on us it’s truly appreciate by this TA who is revamping her bus and largely riding on TPT advice ! Having both sides in the ladies and their transparency you will not get anywhere else. Highly recommend you pull away from webinars and Netflix and start from episode 1.
Refreshing and on point
I’ve learned a lot from Heather and Katie since they started TPT and the podcast! They offer great info and I love how fun and funny they are! two girlfriends having fun on a podcast but at the the same time teaching us the newcomers how to be professional travel Advisors! I wanted to thank them very much for putting this free resource out there! I always look forward to new episodes! Thank you!
