What a great question!
Individuals who participate in the Travel MBA program get a travel advisor training program and a wholistic professional development program all in one. Yes, we teach them how to sell and book travel. We also teach them how to run a sustainably profitable business selling travel. The entrepreneurial education, guidance, mentoring and collaboration they get from their Travel MBA program is how we equip them with the tools and resources to not only beat the odds against them but to crush them.
While they are getting all the nuts and bolts on booking and selling travel they are also learning how to build a business the right way – right from the start. The reason why over 70% of all travel advisors never make a profit is because they are missing the critical wisdom of how to run a profitable business selling travel. Over the 7 years we have had this program, we have seen just about every type of business you can imagine and have advisors build these businesses to fit their desires – not put them in a box that we think you need to go in.
Here is just a taste of what the Travel MBA program includes:
• Support provided by three mentors with more than 60 years combined experience
• Twice weekly coaching calls with the entire TMBA community so you can get questions and learn from the questions others are asking
• Direct support from the mentor team via a dedicated email account
• Support from GTN’s branding and marketing experts
• Hosting with GTN so you can start booking travel when you are ready
• Access to luxury travel consortia Virtuoso
• Access to enhanced amenities and benefits with Elite Hotel Programs
• Access to a library of forms, documents, and other resources travel entrepreneurs need
• Private Facebook forum for the TMBA community (in addition to the GTN member forum)
The cost of the Travel MBA program is less than 1% of the lifetime value of your business which is unheard of in the land of start-ups and the initial investment. It is targeted at people who want to build a sustainably profitable business and life they love around their passion for travel. The Travel MBA is an incredible value at the $10,000 investment level and is very well priced- compared to that of other startups and franchise models - especially for a business that you own!
We look forward to receiving your application and setting up a Zoom call to discuss your business in more depth. https://giftedtravelnetwork.com/travel-mba-application
