Travel Agent Training School
My online travel agent training school is the only one that gives you the what, why and how to become a profitable professional. We start at the beginning - this is a pencil - and walk you through each step of the entire industry. There are lessons to complete, drop down forms for your use, note taking guides and resource guides.
This is a serious business being responsible for clients emotions and money. Don't drop either one. This school is the border, then you can fill in the middle, like a jig saw puzzle, with ongoing training by suppliers, countries, cities, islands and properties.
My Areas of Expertise
Thank you Sharon
Thank you. Travel is getting more complex by the day, it seems. I'm not a super woman, but I do have resources that back me up and help us get you to your dream trip. No one can preduct the future of your travel, but lots of prayer and years of knowledge help. Appreciate the good report.
Ann, You are so generous in your review. It was a joy to help you. I hope you enjoyed the "little" surprise at the end!!! I can take the blame for some things, but not weather or earthquakes!! That was over the top. Thanks
Great family Vacation
Maui Hawaii a trip we will never forget.
Thank you, Kevin, Your family was wonderful to work with. Of course, Tom ranks high. Hopefully, you will do something else before those little ones are up and gone.

The best agent!
Thank you so much. Wow!! Time flies when you are having fun traveling. Thank you so much. More to come!!
Can't say enough about Sharon
We were in search of a river cruise in Germany and thought we knew what we wanted. Sharon was able to open our eyes on more than one cruise line and shared about 6 of them - she knew all of the owners too! She showed us pictures of the boats, explained the themes and what each cruise lines specialized in, and ultimately helped us pick the best cruise line for us.
We got the best price, best package, best time slot, best boat. We had a really wonderful time on what we felt was a first class trip.
Sharon is very thoughtful, respectful, and definitely what you want out of an agent, "helpful". She was our birddog as well in our preparation for our travel - asking us questions to make sure we were prepared, checking in with us on other aspects of our trip that we planned ourselves to make sure it all was going to work right.
She also helped us out with getting the reasonable amount of travel insurance coverage.
I can't say enough about Sharon!
Thank you so much, Ryan. You were a joy to work with. That was a great report. I try to put myself on your trip to make sure all the points are covered. I just wasn't "in" your suitcase. Waiting to hear what your next plan is.
Your the best.

Sharon Shines for Travelers
Thank you so much. It has been a joy to work with you and your son. Both of you are great adventurers and I love it.
Once in a lifetime experience!
Then on another occasion my wife and I got to go on a Mediterranean cruise with a number of other couples we knew and Sharon plan the whole trip we all met up in Spain got on the crew ship and spent the next 10 days having a blast.
I see Sharon as a true example of what a travel agent should be honest, diligent, detailed. She is the best!
Thank you so much. Travel memories are the best.

Adventure travel made easy!
Thank you very much. That was a bit of a nail-biter. It happens sometimes but glad it all worked out and you had a great time. Talk to you soon
An agent you can trust
Sharon is very thorough and detail oriented which makes for a very pleasant travel experience.
Sharon's attitude is always upbeat which carries over to her clients. I am a "glass half full" kind of person and so is Sharon. Her positive attitude can turn a negative situation into a bearable one.
Simply put, she is the only travel expert that I would trust to handle all my travel needs.
Thank you so much. What a joy you have been to work with and your whole group. You are more like family now. Through thick and thin you have been faithful and I appreciate you. Don't stop now. Your retirement is just beginning!!!
Fan trip! We hiked, kayaked and met great people.
Thank you very much. I love the adventures you take me on. More to come!!
