In your life as a travel agent, are you satisfied with your 💵 take-home pay?  Or do you wish you were making more money?  🧞 💲 

Full disclosure, I’ve never met anyone who has told me they didn’t wish they were making more money.  Even if money isn’t your end-all, be-all reason for working as a travel agent, and I hope it isn’t, everybody feels like making more of it would be a good thing.  

So how do you do it?  How do you make more money as a travel agent?  🤔  

The first thing that comes to mind is usually the notion that maybe you’re not working hard enough, or putting in enough hours. ⌛ So people buckle down, tack on an extra hour or two per day, trying to drum up more business.  And that lasts a month or so until they burn out on all that extra effort and sink back into a more comfortable routine, not really solving the problem.  😧

So what’s the secret?  How do you make more money as a travel agent without cutting into the precious time you have for family, friends, travel, and other important aspects of your life?  

Let me assure you, it is possible.  I have loads of tips for increasing your income without burning yourself out or putting in so many hours that your daily life suffers.  If you’ll check out my new  📽️ video, “How to Make More Money as a Travel Agent,” you’ll learn about new avenues for income and building your business that can be implemented in today and going forward.  Take a look!

I hope you’ll put my advice from the video into practice in your travel business.  I want to help you maximize your income 💰 without compromising your life because you shouldn’t have to choose one or the other.  You deserve abundance in both.
