See what some of our team members have said about working with My Vacation Lady:
I started out with a very large, well known host agency. They had great training and that’s what I needed as a new agent. My needs changed and I searched long and hard for a different host that could help me grow my business and I found it in My Vacation Lady. The owner, Mindy, provides solid leads to qualified agents at a generous commission split and tips to close the sale. She also encouraged me to take the plunge and start charging planning fees. She believed in my worth and now so do I! Mindy is always available to answer questions and provide mentoring and so are the other IC’s she hosts. To be clear, I have nothing but good things to say about the large host I started out with, but I’m so happy I made the change.
I am extremely happy with making the switch to a smaller host agency. Agency owner, Mindy, is one-on-one with her agents; answering any question, making suggestions, mentoring and educating. She encourages you to be your own business, have your own identity and form solid relationships with suppliers.
Finding the perfect host is extremely important, so if you’re looking to move and/or would prefer a smaller host, please give Mindy a call.
I couldn’t be happier with my vacation lady! For a small host/team the focus is on each of us to help one another to build our own businesses as well as to work together to assist one another. Our agency owner Mindy, is always available for questions and issues that may arise and goes out of her way to schedule mentoring sessions with each of us. She provides leads to qualified agents as well. Our team is highly motivated and 100% involved. I had no experience when I started, and in one year I have even surprised myself with all I have accomplished.
