Oct 20, 2022 | Aspiring travel agents, Launch a travel business, Operations

Working for someone else can be a real drag.  It’s one of the main reasons people start in the travel business in the first place – to get out from under a 👔 boss or a 🏢 company structure and enjoy the independence of self-employment.  

The life of an independent travel agent can be such a huge step up from your previous employment that you might be good with just staying a solo agent for the rest of your career.  And that’s great!  

But what if you’re ready to take on a bigger challenge?  What if you’re ready to be not just your own boss, but the best boss ever to a team of travel agents of your own?  What if you’re ready to take the next big step and start a host travel agency?  🤔 

Then do it!  

Of course, it’s not as easy as just raising your ✋ hand and declaring your host travel agency open for business.  You probably have a million questions.  

What does it mean to have your own host travel agency?  How will that change what you’re doing in the travel business?  And how do you go about making it happen?  

In my latest 📽️ video, “How Do I Start a Host Travel Agency in 2023?” I run through everything you need to know about getting the ball rolling on your own host travel agency.  Get out your pencil and paper, because you’re going to want to take notes!  

To be perfectly honest, a lot of people in the travel industry don’t want you to know this information.  They want to keep the great and powerful secrets of host agencies all to themselves. 🤫 But I’m here to tell you that starting your own host travel agency is something you are capable of accomplishing, and you’re worthy of the abundance that comes along with it.  And I would love to help you make it a reality!
