    Budget Re-Release

    Budget Re-Release

    Throwback to our 2nd episode ever released on budget. This one feels extra timely now, as we prepare for travel interest to pick up in the coming months, it's important we have the ever important money talks with clients.

    Post-pandemic we'll have be diligent to educate our clients on why there won't be a ton of travel "deals" dropping and how travel pricing is based on supply + demand. With reschedules still to confirm, and a pent up demand, we'll be facing more challenges than usual.

    As always I'd love to hear from you, send me a DM @travelprotheory on the gram

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!
