I'm Just Starting Out - Is This Right For Me?


A career in the travel industry, especially if you are new to the industry, is not one to consider lightly. While many of us love travel and enjoy our own - only those with a strong work ethic, intuition for client service and desire to hustle will succed. It is not an easy feat and there some key important aspects to consider prior to making this decision.

We've put together the 5 Keys Of Success As A Luxury Travel Advisor to help you in making this important career choice.




Can I Work Under My Own Brand/Company Name?


Yes. LaVon Travel & Lifestyle fosters an entrepreneurial community platform allowing you to choose how to build your success. We encourage you to choose a path that best supports your personal career endeavors. Whatever you choose LaVon Travel & Lifestyle is truly a collaborative community where you can thrive. LVTL BRANDED ADVISOR Launching a career in luxury travel can be exciting but also overwhelming and confusing. You may have researched online how to get started, working with a host agency and other avenues to starting your journey. However many new Advisors leave a first choice host agency after realizing lack of support, guidance, mentorship and a sense of conmmunity. LaVon Travel & Lifestyle has created a different type of platform and community that includes everything you need to succed as a an entrepreneur and grow a success business. SELF BRANDED ADVISOR You’ve created personal brand that engages your clients and network, yet you're looking for a platform and community that will support you in growing your business to the next level. At LaVon Travel & Lifestyle we foster entrepreneurship as in an environment that provides all the tools you need to further develop your brand and build financial success within the travel industry.




Why Be A Luxury Travel Advisor?


1. BE YOUR OWN BOSS
While we provide you with the mentorship, community, resources, tools and technology to be successful, we also encourage you to develop your own business systems that will work best for you in building your own path to independent success.

2. WORK FROM ANYWHERE
Leave the 9 to 5 office grind behind and live a true work/life balance from anywhere across the globe. However you will always remain connected to our community and have access to the support you need to thrive.

3. CONTROL YOUR SUCCESS
This is a sales based position and like any other - what you put in is what you reap in reward. You won’t go it alone as part of the Lavon Travel community and if you are prepared to invest the time and hustle towards building a long-term career you will see much success.




What Is The Commission Split?


At LaVon Travel & Lifestyle we believe in entrepreneurship. Unlike traditional host agencies who see you as simply a part of their bottom line, our goal is to help you succeed as an entrepreneur and build a sustainable and profitable business full-time. While we will provide tools to support you operationally, we believe your money earned should be maximized for profit and success.

Our commission structure is transparent and incentivized for you. All new to industry advisors start at 60% with the opportunity to increase to 100% based on your personal success. We do not take ANY split on client service fees charged by advisors. Established Travel Advisors (3+ plus years) starting splits will be evaluated upon joining.




Do You Provide Leads?


It is important that new ICs have an extensive network they plan to tap into for clients and referrals. We provide all LaVon Travel & Li festyle branded ICs access to an exclusive lead program opportunity, as well as lead matching for new inquiries we feel may be a fit. However, new clientele is not guaranteed and ultimately you have to be resourceful in building a solid client base in order to see success.




How Does Your Mentorship Program Work?


We believe mentorship and training is a collaborative effort between the IC, our Founder and community of Advisor. You will be provided with access to a robust collection of educational platforms, tools and software for self-led training. In addition we will offer:

1. Onboarding Training For All ICs This must be completed by all new ICs. During onboarding training you will learn about our internal practices, systems, and guided trip planning process. There is no cost for onboarding and we do not charge any monthly or annual fees to be a part of our IC family.

2. Guided Mentorship and Shadowing For new to industry Advisors (under 3 years), we require a commitment to invest in your professional start with us. We value the resources and time we put into helping our Advisors succeed and want to welcome those that are willing to do the same. All mentoring is done directly with our Founder, Tiffany Layne who designed this program because of your deep rooted dedication to helping others navigate the industry pathways with ease. Mentoring will increase your knowledge, confidence and understanding of the industry, while providing guided professional development through weekly one-on-one calls and detailed shadowing for your first three bookings from start to finish. Once you are comfortable with the client management and the booking process - your support will continue through our community of amazing advisors and leadership team. There is a $350 onboarding and setup fee for all new advisors. Therer is a required $1,500 mentor and program fee for all new to industry advisors to join the collective.
