GUEST SEGMENT
On our previous two shows we’ve discussed the importance of selling yourself first as a travel consultant. You compete in the travel marketplace by clients getting to know you, liking you, and trusting you enough to place their valuable vacation time into your hands. Catherine Heeg, a social media trail blazer in the travel industry, joins us to discuss how to use social media to gain the confidence and trust from potential clients.

GUEST SEGMENT
The world has moved beyond the traditional travel agent who at one time was simply an order taker. The client would tell the agent where they wanted to travel and the travel agent would book the trip. The internet can easily fulfill this function today. The travel agent of today must move into the world of travel consulting. Today’s show features Nolan Burris from Future Proof Travel Travel solutions. Nolan tells us how we can successfully move our business from the realm of the travel agent to the world of the travel consultant.
