Sep 9, 2021 | Grow a travel business, Operations, Travel Business

If you could look into the future and see yourself failing as a travel agent, would you just go ahead and quit?  I mean, why spend so much time and energy trying to succeed as a travel agent when failure is on the horizon?  

Well, I don’t have a 🔮 crystal ball, but I do have one thing that can predict the future fairly accurately:  experience.  

In my years in the travel business and in working as a travel coach, I’ve seen so many travel agents and advisors come and go for all sorts of reasons.  So why do some travel agents fail and others succeed?  🤔   

My time watching these travel agents fail while I was fortunate enough to succeed has led me to identify a number of patterns.  I explain them for you in my new 📽️ video, “5 Reasons Why Travel Agents Fail and What You Can Do to Succeed.”     

I hope these tips will help you and your travel business avoid the pitfalls and find nothing but success.  But I also want to say this:  don’t give up.  Even if you see failure in your crystal ball, you’re not doomed forever.  Keep trying, follow my tips, ask me for help, and keep your head up.  You can succeed in the travel business!
