So thanks for sharing that Joanna. Do I know what is your favorite part of being a travel agent? Oh my gosh, there’s just so many things. I’ve been in this business Like I say a long time so you have to absolutely love it I love to see the smile on people’s faces or their children if they spur us With a trip, you know christmas is coming up So that’s going to be happening and just even being in an airport and just seeing smiles on everybody’s face So it’s nice to come to work and know in the end. You’re gonna put a smile on somebody’s face. Yeah I know with Christmas you get all those fun at videos and people saying, you know, we’re going to do Do you have a personal mantra or Something that you tell yourself if you ever get stuck, you know And you need to get unstuck because as a business owner as the travel agent You probably have those weeks that occasionally, you know, you’re just feeling a little stuck Do you have a personal mantra? And can you share that with us today? the mantra that I use the most and Always for everything is a little long but it is I am enough I do enough I am I am grateful for my blessings. I’m Happy healthy mind body and soul and I’m grateful to my God for that So I’m just I’m grateful. I am just learning to be so grateful in life.

Whatever like you are showing up for your clients day in and day out you’re showing up for your business day in and day out And you’re treating it like a real business and that’s another reason we chose Joanna Scott as our outstanding agent of the month here in the travel expert marketing Academy because She shows up every day and she does the work and so she’s working on herself she’s working on her business day in and day out and treating it like a real business and not just a Hobby, and there’s nothing wrong with hobbies, you know If you’re an agent out there or you’re just a traveler watching this and you have a little side hustle.
