Part 2. My social media marketing & luxury travel backstory contd.
If you haven’t tuned in earlier to this series about how I went from turning my passion, experience & education into a successful marketing & production company then be sure to check out that post. SAVE this post if you’re trying to find your way or a way. 🥰
Six years ago I was working for a massive media company & thinking about my future post graduating. I knew I was on a track, wasn’t sure it was the ideal track but I wasn’t going to stop. Fast forward to graduating with double majors in Sociology & Marketing, I decided to put my efforts to use. Ta dahhh, I started my very own luxury travel agency. It was a step in the right direction, I was able to obtain an IATA number (travel advisor license number). I aligned myself with one of the biggest travel host companies and @virtuosoltd an invite only travel consortium which allows you to add high end amenities to your bookings based on properties in the group.
So now I was making commissions on each uber luxe itinerary, and not to mention numerous travel perks and discounts. This allowed me to travel to luxury hotels and start snapping more pics. This should have made me content, but I wasn’t. I was itching to travel every time I booked another vacay for someone else. It was at that moment, I knew I had to continue my quest to merge multiple endeavors.
