Dream Vacations Inspires Entrepreneurs to “Live Their Dream” at “Entrepreneur L!ve” Conference in Brooklyn
Creative experts from the Dream Vacations travel agency franchise attended “Entrepreneur L!ve,” which has been ranked as one of the top five e-commerce conferences to attend in 2018. In one inspiring day, Entrepreneur magazine brought together world-renowned influencers and innovators to share their unfiltered, unconventional, unexpected and thought-provoking insights into what it takes to launch, sustain and grow a business. We learned valuable insight into the minds of small business owners that will assist us in better servicing our franchisees. This year the keynote speakers were retired race car driver Danica Patrick and professional tennis player Maria Sharapova who are also entrepreneurs who started their own businesses. As the only franchisor in attendance, Dream Vacations was invited to encourage attendees to “Live their Dream” and pursue their passion of business ownership. To generate excitement, we hosted a contest to give away $500 toward a Dream Vacation, and our Vice President of Marketing & Strategic Partnerships Rosemarie Reed conducted a Facebook Live interview. Check it out.
The conference confirmed what we already knew. Entrepreneurs are not afraid to take risks and Dream Vacations is made up of savvy risk takers. Our network of home travel business owners and entrepreneurs took a leap of faith and pursued their passion for travel by opening a travel agency, many times with no prior industry or even business experience. They minimized their risk by joining a well-established organization with a reputation of being the best travel agency franchise. The leaders of Dream Vacations are risk-takers. They launched a new franchise brand (Dream Vacations) that speaks to all types of vacations as the sister brand to the well-established CruiseOne brand. Together, we are changing history and leading the evolution of home-based travel agents.
Are you passionate about travel but not sure if you can really make a living? Joining a travel agency franchise should be at the top of your list. To own a successful business, you need to have more than passion. You need to have a fundamental understanding of organizational behavior, technology, finance, and marketing. While this can be a challenge for those who do not have a business background, many of these are solved for when you join a franchise. That way you can solely focus on your bottom line and making dream vacations become a reality. Not only do you have access to tools and resources to make running a business a seamless operation, but you also have a team of subject matter experts at headquarters who can educate you on these topics and guide you on your path to success. Of course, at the end of the day you hold the key to your success and the franchise provides a support system. As part of a franchise, you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself.
You shouldn’t talk yourself out of owning a travel agency franchise. Travel agents do exist and they not only make lucrative incomes, but they also enjoy the lifestyle it affords by taking advantage of travel opportunities.
