I am very proud of what I have achieved. I have ambitious goals for the end of 2019 and I would like to lose 15 kgs. I'm about to do a holiday trip of a lifetime with my hubby.
I love the change that becoming a Travel Counsellor has brought to my life. No more stress! No more long hours! If I do need to put in the extra time I don't mind as its for my benefit. I love that I don't have the responsibility for the performance of staff. Working from home and doing what I love most is what attracted me to Travel Counsellors.
I am empowered to run a successful business. I currently make more money now than I ever did in retail! I have more time now with my family AND have travelled more!
I love that I have more time to spend with my husband, son and our 6 dogs! I love cycling with my husband, watching sunsets and exploring our beautiful world! I have travelled to 6 continents! Any place that I haven't travelled to, is on my bucket list. "Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
