Hello everyone, and welcome to Travel Agent Musings!
First and foremost, this blog is all about people in the travel industry: agents, managers, and owners. We’re going to be talking about the latest trends in travel and travel systems, as well as agency best practices that can help make us all more successful and profitable.
A little bit about me: my name is Rhonda Stanley. I’ve been in the travel business for over 25 years. In that time, I’ve worked as an agent and a manager, as well as selling travel technology. I’ve seen how agencies can get a leg up on their competition, what tricks help create repeat business, and what changes in the industry are likely to affect us all.
But I’m sure you’ve seen a lot too. That’s why we want to make Musings not just a blog, but an open dialogue about the travel industry. Our goal is to create a forum where travel professionals can not only read up on the latest trends, but also talk about them. We invite you to share your experiences, comment (whether you agree or disagree), and feel free to make some noise!
My personal goal is to engage you – travel professionals – in a meaningful conversation. Along the way, I think we’ll all learn a lot from each other. Heck, we might even have a bit of fun doing it!
So with that in mind, I hope you enjoy the ride. I look forward to hearing from you!
