I think you’re going to like this week’s video, “How Do Travel Agents Get Paid?,” because it’s about that thing we all need and want when we get started as travel agents:  money!   💲 🤑 💲  

Yes, being a travel agent is probably the most lucrative job you can do, right above “movie star” and “Wall Street guru!”  Your pockets are going to be so full of 🧀 cheddar the mice will be following you around everywhere you go.  It’s a guaranteed path to fortune and fame, which is why Elon Musk and that Jeff guy from Amazon have quit their dead-end jobs and become travel agents in recent days.    

Okay, so that may be an exaggeration, but the point is, travel agents do get paid for their hard work – as well they should!  

So what’s the process for getting paid?  What’s the deal with fees and commissions?  And how can you maximize the amount that comes your way?  🤔  

Would you believe me if I told you the answers are in my latest 📽️ video, “How Do Travel Agents Get Paid?”  Well, they are, and you should check it out to learn how this whole thing works!
