I never left the continental United States before my honeymoon in 2013, when my new husband and I traveled to St. Lucia for a stay at Sandals La Toc. As a single mom to two sons and with busy – yet unhappy – career as a nonprofit executive, traveling wasn’t much of an option. In St. Lucia, I fell in love with the people, the beauty and the chance to experience and learn about a culture completely different from my own. After that initial trip, I was hooked on travel. I suddenly became that person looking for the next vacation while on vacation.
A few years later, I decided to leave my nonprofit burnout behind and took some time to figure out what was next for me. I had been looking for the right opportunity to dive into entrepreneurship but was clueless what that should look like. I always wanted to work for myself and looked for opportunities since the days of dial-up internet. One day in early spring of 2018, I found Cruises Inc. and Dream Vacations listed in an article about franchises in Entrepreneur.com. I watched the webinar and it was as if this amazing business opportunity found me.
More than a year later, I have met awesome people from all over the country with a true passion for travel. Starting a business in any industry is not easy and while it requires work and perseverance, I am confident I made a great choice and found a wonderful company to build my future with. Cruises Inc. headquarters staff and fellow agents offer a supportive, nurturing, fun and informative environment. Every training I have attended in the past year has motivated me to become successful in my business and thanks to the great training I’ve received with Cruises Inc., I went from Bronze to Gold level in our company in less than a year.
I cannot say enough about my experience with Cruises Inc. thus far. If you are looking for a company with caring staff, supportive colleagues and thorough, comprehensive training, look no further. You’ll be glad you joined our family.
