Three reasons why becoming a Travel Counsellor could help beat the January blues

Many of us see the New Year as a chance for a fresh start. We reflect on the highs and lows of the previous year and vow to refocus our energy as we move into the new one. However, it’s easy to slip back into old habits between the dark mornings and rainy afternoons. It’s no surprise that many of us start to feel the January Blues; January 16th has even been touted as the most depressing day of the year, 'Blue Monday'.

This may just explain why January is the most popular month to switch jobs. In fact, we’re delighted to announce that we have 12 new Travel Counsellors joining the business this month, bringing over 150 years’ worth of experience with them.

The most common motivations for a career change in the new year are finding your job boring, feeling that you need a new challenge, or wanting to earn more. If this sounds familiar, let us give you 3 reasons why becoming a Travel Counsellor could be the career change you need in 2023.

Follow your passions

A day at work will never be boring once you have the freedom to follow your passions. Love selling your favourite destination? Prefer winning new business? A social media wizz? With the flexibility to work together with other Travel Counsellors in the community, you can run your business how you want, allowing you to play to your strengths and do what you enjoy.

“The best thing about owning my business is being in control. I love what I do, I sell what I want to sell and I market to the customers I want to have.” - Alex Buckle

Whatever your background, our bespoke, industry-leading training will equip you with all the tools that you need to make your business a success. You’ll then have the support of accredited business coaches, as well as a whole community of experienced Travel Counsellors.
