Since being an independent agent with Outsideagentlink, it has been very enjoyable. Though you are your own agent, the assistance and support is well rounded. To be able to pick your commission tier and pay just one annual fee is a nice aspect since most online home based companies require you to pay extra for training whereas you can gain your own training as you feel the need. I also like the fact that you become a travel partner with most if not all major travel companies such as Carnival, Disney, Disney, AA Vacations, Apple Vacations and the sort.

After having been involuntarily retired due to age, I needed to find another avenue to keep me occupied. I had tried another travel business several years ago, one where you were only a referral agent. The company had many, many problems and was not one I wanted to be associated with, so I dropped my membership. Towards the end of 2017 when I was fully "retired", I started looking at top agencies that would help me get back into the travel industry. I heard both good and bad stories about several, including Avoya. As in everything in life, there are two sides to every story. I called a few of their top agencies that I was able to locate and received nothing but positive encouragement. No one was afraid to share what they knew, only wanted to help me make the right decision and become successful like they were. I signed up and started my training, graduated in early 2018 and was accepted, formed my LLC, did everything that I was asked to do, and started receiving live leads. As in any business, you only get out of it what you are willing to invest. Not every lead was a sale, but I kept going. I took advantage of the many training opportunities with Avoya and with the cruise industry and continue to do so. My first nine months were not what I had hoped for, but through the Mastermind Program, Live Leads, weekly training webinars, and staff that are willing to help you, I did not give up. 2019 started with a new group booking, more successful live leads that resulted in bookings from a variety of cruise lines and from Amtrak, and I am on course to having a record year for me, far surpassing my goals for 2019. I could not have done it without the continued support from my host agency - Avoya Travel. I choose not to listen to negative people and to believe negative reviews. I have to do what I have been trained to do - keep learning from this top host agency, accept their help and advice, continue to ask for help when needed, and reach for and obtain that next higher goal. Thank you to Avoya Travel and everyone on staff for your help. Renewal time is here and I am staying right where I am.
I started with Nexion in 2013 after looking for a host agency that would provide greater profit through higher commissions as well as back end support. I got more than I expected! First, they treat us like family, are committed to our success and want to have FUN doing it. (Wait until you go to one of their CoNexion events or conferences!) They are professional at what they do. They have also smartly integrated with the resources and support from Travel Leaders Network to give us great tools, and scale advantages with Suppliers like discounted fares and special amenities . Lastly, they have created a strong network of all their agencies that are committed to help each other. Nexion leadership goes out of its way to recognize individuals that are helping the network be even better. I can easily ask other agents for help, ideas, suggestions through Nexion town and get immediate help from my peers --solving problems or coming up with suggestions to help my clients. Joining Nexion was one of my smarter business decisions! I can really say that I proud to be a Nexion agent!

Hi, I’m Steph! I own the site. :)

I’m passionately curious, always up for something new! I love to travel, read/write, and meet new people. I have an 80-lb. Collie mix named Rigel that keeps me company!

I grew up in the travel industry (my parents had a travel agency) and built and worked at a host agency for years. Sometimes I get so excited about things, I think I leave a trail of rainbows in my footprints! :)
