If you’re beginning a travel business, you are probably super excited about the amazing perks that come with the territory – fantasy trips ✈️ to exotic locations (for research purposes, of course), being your own boss, living the “laptop life,” working on the beach 🏖️ instead of in some stuffy old office…  It’s a dream job!  And not only that, you get paid!  🤑 

But, where does the payment come from?  How do travel agents make money?    

These are questions we get a lot, so I’ve broken it down for you in my new  📽️ video, “How Do Travel Agents Make Money?”  In the video, I spell out commissions, fees, and all the other different ways you’ll be getting paid for the great services you provide as a travel agent.  

And not only do I tell you the basics of how travel agents get paid, I tell you how you can go from getting paid to getting PAID. 💰 We’re talking about the specifics of what it takes to get to a million dollars in sales.  (You can get to that level by averaging less than one sale per day – seriously!)  Take a look at the video and get excited!  😄

There’s more to life as a travel agent than getting paid.  But it is a job, and you deserve to be paid well for the work you do.  If you’re ready to live your life doing what you love and getting paid for it, I’m here to help.
