We are celebrating Women’s History and Women all month long. What better way to celebrate women than to support their small businesses.
When the pandemic hit, many people lost their jobs or had to abandon them to stay home with children that were unable to go to school. Now as we slowly start to rebuild, small businesses need our help and support more than ever. During this month that we devote to celebrate amazing women of our past, present, and future, do your part to support women owned and operated business.
I am a travel professional helping guests travel to all corners of the world with Disney through parks, Aulani, cruising, and Adventures by Disney. Disney is truly a passion of mine. I also help guests with their Universal Studios travel and have recently became trained and certified in several cruise lines (Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Virgin) and all-inclusive resorts (Sandals, Club Med). I do this because I love to travel myself and I really enjoy helping others turn their travel dreams into memories that will last a lifetime.
If you are unable or not ready to travel at this moment, you can still support your favorite travel agent! Here are a few ways:
Like their posts on social media
Comment on their posts
Leave a review
Give them a shout out
Refer them to friends and family
That last one is probably the most important. A referral from a previous guest is one of the highest compliments an agent can receive. Also, we can work with anyone, anywhere. It does not have to be someone local.
I thank you for your continued business and support. It means so much!
