Wishes and Dreams Can Come True!
By: Rebecca Jones
Sometimes it takes a small nudge from an unlikely source to encourage you to follow your dreams. At least that’s what happened to me when my oldest daughter innocently asked me what my dream job was. As a stay-at-home mom, I hadn’t brought home a true income in quite a while, and I was okay with that. Until she asked me about my dream job, that is, and I truly started thinking about it.
I wanted a job where I could set my own hours, and have the flexibility to take time off to be available to my family, still have “mom” as my number one responsibility, and use my business skills from my previous life. Luckily, I found all that at Wishes Family Travel.
As a Concierge Agent with Wishes, I have found the perfect job for me. As a Disney fanatic, I love sharing the joy and magic of Disney destination vacations with other families. My goal is to assist other families have as much fun on their Disney vacations as my family does when we travel.
I’ve traveled to several Disney locations, and my knowledge of those locations helps me be a better travel agent. In order to help others, you have to know what you are talking about. So, at Wishes Family Travel, we look for people who have traveled several times to Disney World, or Disneyland, or on the Disney Cruise Line. Who knew all those trips to Disney World would help me find a job I love?
Another thing that has helped me be a successful Concierge Agent is my background in business and sales. Even though a college degree isn’t required, it definitely helped me develop a system that works for me, and gave me the skills necessary to organize my clients’ files, keep track of all their different due dates, and communicate effectively with them. It also helps me with writing blogs, such as this, and developing a marketing plan to reach potential new clients.
The final thing that I believe has helped me succeed at Wishes Family Travel is the support and training that our management team provides. From early on, I never felt alone. I always knew I could ask questions about anything, and the training that I received ensured that I knew the latest about Disney destinations, and the proper way to assist my clients.
Working for Wishes Family Travel is truly a dream come true for me. I can combine professionalism with excitement, and responsibility with magic. If you are an educated, business-oriented lover of all things Disney, I encourage you to apply for a Concierge Agent position with Wishes Family Travel.
