12 Jun You’re a Small Business Owner – Lean Into Your Role as CEO
Running a travel business is much like running any other small business: Your success relies on your hard work, dedication and ability to make decisions that will help grow your business. At Levarté Travel, we’re changing perceptions of what a travel business owner can be – it’s more than just a side hustle, and can be enormously successful in just a few years.
As the CEO of your business, you have the freedom to make the big decisions. You have control over the destinations you specialize in, your marketing strategies and the types of clients you work with. You’re empowered to build a business that aligns with your values, goals and passion for travel.
Of course, one advantage of running a travel business is the flexibility it offers. You can choose how much time you want to dedicate to your business, which allows you to balance work and personal life. You can also choose to specialize in specific travel niches, which can lead to more expertise, better experiences for clients, higher profits and even a team of advisors and support staff under your agency. Lastly, and one of our favorite benefits, is the ability to work from anywhere in the world.
We won’t sugarcoat it – running a business takes more than passion. It requires a lot of hard work and dedication to growth. You have to be able to manage your finances, market your business effectively, build strong relationships with your clients and look after the details. You should also make time to stay up-to-date on the latest travel trends, industry news and technology advancements.
But you’re in the right place! Our host agency provides travel business owners with the tools they need to be successful, with a range of services included in our memberships, such as custom marketing solutions, ongoing training and educational opportunities, back office support and more. Our goal is help you build your business by giving you a head start and a leg up on the foundational needs so you can provide exceptional service to clients right away.
And if you’re feeling like you’re on shaky ground going it alone, our community of travel advisors is a supportive and collaborative group that shares insights, advice and expertise. Being a part of this network allows business owners to learn from one another, share best practices and build relationships that encourage you to keep moving toward your goals.At Levarté Travel, we see all our members as C-suite executives, charting the course for their company.
