How to become a Certified Travel Agency Owner
To become a certified travel agency owner, you must participate in a yearlong certification process, which includes 13 core training modules, participating in classes, setting up your agency according to standardized practices and putting your learning into action. Successful completion of the Wanderlust CEO Certification Program and passing the final exam will then allow Agency Owners to use the Certified Travel Agency Owner™ designation. This industry recognized designation will let consumers know you are a certified and skilled travel agency owner. This will set you apart from other agency owners in the marketplace.
About the Certified Travel Agency designation
As a Certified Travel Agency Owner you are also able to use the Certified Travel Agency™ designation for your agency. This tells perspective clients and staff that your agency operates using the best practices and growth strategies within the industry, making you the premier choice for both consumers and prospective new hires.
Am I ready for the WLCEO mastermind?
Not everyone is ready for this mastermind and that is ok. Our programs support travel entrepreneurs of all levels. To apply for the Wanderlust CEO™ Mastermind, you must be a graduate of the Careers On Vacation™ Mastermind [OR] have at least 300k-1M+ in annual sales. If you meet one or both of these criteria, you are eligible to apply. If not, we recommend you begin with the Careers On Vacation™ Mastermind. You can also take the quiz to find out which program is best for you.

How does the WLCEO Mastermind compare to other travel agency training programs?
Great question! Good vetting should be part of your screening process no matter who you hire to support you in your growth initiatives. Please don’t invest in anyone (even us) until you’ve vetted them to see if they are a match for you.
Remember, the cheapest solutions are rarely the best for tangible results. It’s always best to go with someone who works in our industry and can show you proven results. We have more than 200 case studies from our clients – you can watch some of them here. Also, here’s a free checklist to help you see how we measure up against the competition.
There are plenty of franchises and hosts that will allow you to “sub-host” under their parent structure, and in return, you pay a percentage of your commissions to them. Additionally, with traditional hosts and franchises alike, you will also have to pay them a percentage of all your team’s sales, as well!
We didn’t like those models, so we are breaking the mold and helping you build your business like the big guys. We never take any commissions from our clients. Not only will you earn and keep 100% of your commissions, you will be able to earn a percentage of commissions from your agents’ sales too. Not to mention, we are going to show you how to market, scale, and monetize your travel business in multiple ways. Check out everything that is included here.
Our improved business model has the most earning potential in the industry, bar none. Plus, you may be surprised to learn that even those that host under others or purchase a 15K-20K franchise still end up hiring us to help them grow. This program will save you that huge lump sum, and set you up for maximum earning potential for a lifetime.
How do I grow a team when I'm busy selling travel?
If you are producing the most sales for your organization, it’s hard to image how you will stop selling to start supporting your growing team. We have you covered. Inside the program, you'll learn how to successfully transition from salesperson to CEO (we literally have an entire module dedicated to it). We'll also show you how to monetize your hiring process so you can keep cash flow coming in while you grow your team.
What if I don't have time to build a new-hire training system?
In a nutshell, you don’t have to. We will do it for you.
One of the biggest challenges travel agency owners face is successfully training new staff and getting them to perform quickly.
When you participate in the Wanderlust CEO™ Mastermind we actually train your new hires for you! Yes, you read that right. All mastermind participants will have access to our Travel Professional Training Kit – a plug-and-play training that you can share with your entire team.
Do I get to work with Cyndi?
Yes! In both our mastermind programs you will have access to Cyndi and her amazing team of industry and marketing experts.
Do I earn a certification?
Yes! As a program participant, you will be able to proudly display that you're a Wanderlust CEO certified agency, and use a watermarked logo on your website and in your marketing efforts. This brand recognition will help attract and retain more qualified candidates for your team.
How can I guarantee that I will have more success in record time?
Do all of your homework. Be totally committed to your success. Understand that this is a process – yes, a proven one – that works if you take action and implement all of the steps.
Program members who diligently apply every step of the Wanderlust CEO™ Mastermind have successfully built travel businesses, grown their teams and manifested bigger abundance in much less time than they would have on their own. With the added bonus of enjoying the freedom of working for themselves from any location they choose, all while traveling as much as they’d like to.
Okay, okay. But does this REALLY work?
Yes! We have built a huge reputation in the industry of delivering tangible results for our clients. The result of our work is an approach to shifting your mindset and putting a proven strategic business model in place so you can confidently manifest your company growth to any level.
There is no other company in the industry that can boast 200+ case studies (check out our testimonial page here) and more than hundreds of five star reviews.
