At the risk of tooting my own horn… 🎺

Happy 30th anniversary to me!!! 🥳 🎉 🍾

Yes, 30 short years ago, I began my journey in the travel industry. From starting out as a travel agent in the 🏢 corporate world, to going independent, to creating my own business and 🏫 travel school, and all the other adventures I’ve had along the way, it’s been a heck of a ride. 😎

I’ve been fortunate enough to visit countless amazing places, meet incredible people, and have experiences that 1993 Cyndi couldn’t have 💭 dreamed of. But the best thing about my time in travel is that I’ve been able to help so many other people create their own fantastic careers in the travel world that I love. And the magic that makes it happen is our signature and most popular program, Careers On Vacation.

In my latest 📽️ video, “Cyndi's 30th Anniversary Panel Interview,” I talk with some of my favorite Careers on Vacation graduates about how things are going with their travel businesses. Since graduation, these owners have all become Disney Earmarked and run multi-million dollar agencies! It’s a great convo, and I think you’ll be excited when you see people just like you who are really making it in travel. Here’s the link:

You really have to love something to still be 😃 excited about it after 30 years, and that’s exactly the case with me and being a travel business owner. If you’re ready to get in on this excitement, I highly suggest you start like my fabulous panelists did: by applying for Careers on Vacation!
