Top 7 Signs You Need a Travel Coach

What would it feel like to come home from your next vacation relaxed, refreshed, and reinvigorated?

If you think like me, it would feel amazingly good. I envision having the energy and enthusiasm I need to get back to work, and I would feel free from stress. People I interact with on my first day back at work would be able to hear the calm and peace in my voice. Words like blissful, carefree, and renewed come to mind.

So as I consider the joy this kind of mindset would bring me, I ask myself: Is this even possible?

The answer: Yes!

Top 7 Signs You Need a Travel Coach

  1. You come home from your vacation feeling like you need a vacation.
  2. The stress of planning a vacation causes you to miss the fun of anticipating your vacation.
  3. You and your travel companions have disagreements over the details of the vacation.
  4. You spend more time working than relaxing during vacation time.
  5. The accommodations and attractions you pick online don’t seem to measure up in person.
  6. Your vacations feel too structured/allow little flexibility.
  7. You come home feeling like you were only away for 2 days, instead of 7 or more.

If any of these statements resonate with you, it may be time to hire a travel coach… someone who can walk alongside you during the planning stages of your next vacation.
