IWas You

When I started in the travel business 10 years ago, I was excited and eager to share my love of travel with my clients.  I couldn't wait to get started as a travel agent and I quickly signed a contract with the first agency that was willing to accept me.  I was ready to go!  But, wait, how was I going to reach my goals?  Surely, my new agency would offer me some support and training.  I felt like I was screaming into the void.  "Hello?  Can anybody hear me?"

Things did not start off well.  I received a THICK handbook in the mail shortly after signing my contract but no real support.  I had to muddle my way through marketing, sales and even how to actually book a trip.  I made a ton of mistakes that cost me a lot of business and it took me forever to get up and running.  Even though I had a background in sales, trying to figure everything out myself was exhausting.

Fast-forward five years and I had built a decent business and had become the sales manager for our agency.  Then, things started to go awry.  Commission payments started to come later and later.  I always felt like there were things going on "behind the scenes" and it made me really uncomfortable.  I began to have a sneaking suspicion that my commission checks were going to fund the owners' family vacations and I didn't like it.  I had finally had enough and I quit to start Modern Travel Professionals (originally known as Magical Mouse Plans Travel).  I was determined to build my ideal agency -- transparent, honest and drama-free.  I set to work.

At the beginning, I kind of looked like this...

...but I got my feet under me and have built the kind of agency I always dreamed of working for. We've got a great team going and we've got room for a few great travel specialists.  Are you ready to be a Modern Travel Professional?

Why Modern Travel Professionals?

I won't pretend we are the only agency that offers on-time payment, a great culture, and lots of support.  However, I think we are the BEST!  Why?  At Modern Travel Professionals, we offer some unique features that you won't find at most boutique agencies.

  • Top-Tier Commission with our preferred vendors. We are small but mighty!

  • Complete Six-Week Training Program Our exclusive, six-week training program will ensure you have the foundation you need to grow your business quickly.

  • Dedicated Agent Support Manager and easy access to me.  You don't have to wonder who the owner of your agency is. I will be with you every step of the way.

  • Online Tools to make your business more efficient.  A complete customer relations management system that you can access from any computer or phone.  Never be without your client information at your fingertips!

  • Marketing Money.  Our vendors support our marketing efforts and we can often work with them to cover a portion of your marketing costs.

  • Family Atmosphere.  We are small by design.  We love getting to know our agents personally and we can't do that if we have 200 hundred agents.  You will never be a cog in a wheel.

  • Transparency.  We've got nothing to hide.  When we make a decision or a change, you will know why.  

Does this sound good to you?

Being a travel professional is certainly not an easy job.  We deal with difficult clients, crazy airline schedules, and competition from big box stores.  Shouldn't your agency make growing your business as stress-free as possible?  It's time to discover life at Modern Travel Professionals.

We look forward to speaking with you!
