Success as an Independent Contractor

Building Your Travel Network

Your Experience & Gaining Experience

Clients value the knowledge and personal experience of a ‘seasoned’ travel specialist, but you do not necessarily need to travel all countries of the world to be a very valued travel specialist!

  • Start where you ARE – meaning sell what you are familiar with already.
  • EDUCATE yourself on destinations you are NOT familiar with but THINK you could sell very well by using the PVGT webinar and educational tools we provide through our Travel Leaders, CLIA, and ASTA networks.
  • Using OUR network enables you to curate spectacular experiences in every destination for your clients – even if you have NOT personally been there!
Selling Yourself will Sell the Destination
