Day 1 Topic: Planning Fees for travel advisors - everything you need to know!
During the pandemic, many travel advisors lost it all....except of course for those who had charged planning fees! It's no surprise that over the past 3 years, we have seen travel advisors and agencies rush to implement fees in their business. If you haven't taken the leap or know you need to improve on what you have done, this training is for you! We will cover the following (and more):
How to start implementing fees ;What to tell existing clients; What to tell your new clients; How to make the first move; How to do it if you are scared

Day 2 Topic: Removing the noise and overwhelm, to make space for new leads
How many times each week (or day) do you feel overwhelmed in your travel business? Too much to do, not sure where to start? Maybe you have to-do lists that never end. Don't panic! While it is totally normal, you can't continue this way. Having any type of chaos or disorganization in your business will block the blessings coming your way.
In this session we will show you 5 amazing tactics you can implement into your business right away, so that you can remove the noise and overwhelm in your travel business, allowing you to make space for new leads. This session is for you, if you want to be more organized, more focussed, less stressed and more intentional in your travel business.

You deserve to have a consistent stream of new clients for your travel business
In this session we will talk about the most common ways that profitable travel advisors find leads and what your next step should be.; whether you are a new or seasoned travel advisor.
