"Colleagues should take care of each other, have fun, celebrate success, learn by failure, look for reasons to praise not to criticize, communicate freely and respect each other." — Richard Branson
Tonight I'm celebrating another successful year by exhibiting in the trade show portion of our annual Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce winter gala. It's my third time with a Nine Muses Travel table at our event, and I'm looking forward to seeing familiar faces and networking with new people too. I have so much to celebrate with Nine Muses Travel, looking back on 2023. You already know I've traveled a lot this year, and I did it while increasing sales in 2023 too. How does she do it, you wonder? I can work anywhere there's an internet connection, and thanks to Zoom, I even met with clients from the Atlantic Ocean during my Virgin Voyages cruise. I've built efficient systems and processes into my business operations, and most importantly, I truly, madly, deeply love what I do! I'm excited each day to help my clients lead well-traveled lives on their own terms, with all their own preferences in place.
Yesterday, I finalized plans to cross off a country extremely high on my list, and I don't think it's even sunk in yet. First, I was graciously invited to Cape Town, South Africa in April to attend ILTM Africa, a travel show focused on African destinations and suppliers. I'm a fully hosted buyer, meaning my flights and hotel are covered by the show organizers. As if that wasn't already a dream come true, a country I've fantasized about for years is Namibia, located across South Africa's northern border. So... 2024 is the year I finally visit Namibia! Right after ILTM Africa, I fly to the capital, Windhoek, and join G Adventures' incredible National Geographic itinerary Wonders of Namibia (with a special advisor rate).
If you're not familiar with Namibia, just for fun, click the below Google Image searches for some places we're going to experience to see why I'm obsessed with it. I'm so curious to learn how plants and animals have adapted to survive in the Namib desert, which may be the world's oldest. I have so much to share about why I'm fascinated by Namibia, but for now, a picture is worth a thousand words!
In 2024, where would you like to see yourself? What dream destinations have you put off long enough?
