Im glad that we found this blog. The information has been invaluable in developing our new travel agency. Even with many years of outside sales for a local office, going out on our own presented interesting challenges. Now that www.travelpersonality.ccom is up and running, we are thankful to this blog. I found it when listening to various podcasts that I picked up on iTunes. Their podcasts are a good way to grab the info on the run. This particular podcast, even as a repeat is invaluable.
