I have worked in the Travel Industry for well over 25 years. But, 11 years ago I decided to open my own travel agency with a partner and we became Let's Go! Travel. We were the first home based travel agency in Tuolumne County.
During these past 11 years I have had to face the challenges of re-defining myself as a Travel Consultant, facing the increasing need to be available in all types of formats (mobile, web, social media) and just meeting the ever growing small business economic changes.
