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.
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.
1. Onboarding Training For All ICs
2. Guided Mentorship and Shadowing
