The Pros & Cons of Being a Travel Agent in 2023

Feb 2, 2023 | Aspiring travel agents, Launch a travel business

If I had a magic lamp that came complete with a wise-cracking blue genie 🧞 and all that, you know what I would wish for? 

Well, first I’d try the “wish for infinite wishes” thing.  It’s worth a shot.  ♾️ 🤞 

But after the genie and I had cleared up that scenario, I would wish for the ability to know which choice is the best choice for me to make in any and every decision-making situation.  Don’t you think that would be a cool power to have?  

I know a lot of people are facing big decisions about their futures as travel agents right now.  The lure of entrepreneurial freedom, of talking about travel, and helping people book fabulous vacations is a powerful one. 🛫 🛳️ But on the other hand there are concerns about whether being a travel agent in 2023 is enough of a viable, stable, reliable profession for providing for your family right now. 💵 👪  

It would be great to just magically know the best decision to make, but failing that, your best bet is to make a pros-and-cons list.  In my latest 📽️ video, “The Pros & Cons of Being a Travel Agent in 2023,” I go over the main things you’ll want to weigh against one another to determine if this is the right time for you to be a travel agent.  Take a look right here:

The choice of working as a travel agent in 2023 can only be made by you.  When you’re weighing the pros and cons, you have to determine how much of an impact each one will have on your decision, and how your decision will impact your life.  If you go into your decision-making process with a practical mind, an open heart, and a thorough pros-and-cons list, you’ll give yourself your best chance to make the right choices.
