But first,

Know I’ve been there — at the point where I’d taken a full-blown travel course but truthfully didn’t know where to apply the information I learned. I was frustrated, to say the least.

“Plan Your Solo Media Trip (Like A Pro),” is one example of the mini-courses I created to help you dive into travel writing. They’re niche-specific and help you break down the barriers that hold you back from planning the solo media trip of your DREAMS.

That’s why I created a high-value $10 mini-course cheat sheet that teaches you THE FUNDAMENTALS OF PLANNING AN EXTRAORDINARY SOLO MEDIA TRIP. You can buy it here, now, and get a jump on your plans today. 

Why is a solo trip so important to your career?

There’s safety in numbers and group trips can also be exciting for a few reasons.

  1. You get to check on your competition.
  2. Group trips shield you from the limelight.
  3. Most group trips are orchestrated and you travel together.

But what if, for example, you don’t want to visit a winery or brewery or you’re not interested in sports? Or hiking? Or fly fishing?

A solo media trip gives you more flexibility and a chance to conduct one-on-one interviews with key people in the lodging and tourism industries. In other words, in most cases, you can plan your own agenda, order the meals of your choice, schedule your day(s), and negotiate services and costs. Those are a few of the perks of taking charge of your destiny.

Competition?

The Travel writing field is FLOODED with writers, journalists, retirees, and just about everyone else who loves to travel. In fact, there’s so much more to consider when you’re plotting your course.

  1. Protocol
  2. Transportation
  3. Cost
  4. Schedule

Theoretically, when you invest your time and money in a travel course, you should be able to come out of the gate and land a travel assignment. It’s as simple as that. Or is it?

Learn from a Pro

Before I branched out into travel writing, I spent most of my career in PR, advertising, event planning, and photojournalism. Make no mistake, those positions helped prepare me for every position I’ve held in 30 years. Clearly, I’ve discovered through trial and error, you need more skills than a love for travel and an ability to document your every move.

I’ll Guide You Through Your Journey

So how do you make your way through a densely populated forest of writers and get your name in front of the people in the travel industry who book travel writers?  

My cheat sheet focuses on the tips and techniques I’ve learned as a journalist and travel writer while covering a myriad of destinations and events on more than 50 media trips in five years.

How do you get your name in front of the key people who set up travel assignments?

Imagine the possibilities that await you in the travel world!

I’ll teach you how to break into the travel industry with step-by-step instruction and help you set goals.

Throughout my careers in journalism and travel writing, I learned we all need a coach now and them to help us achieve our dreams.   

The truth is my years as a print journalist were some of the best days of my life and winning five newspaper association press awards was the icing on the cake.

But I owe my success in travel writing to the mentors and coaches who guided me along.

That’s why I created the Everything, Everywhere, Travel Writer “Learn Travel Writing” private group. You’ll find the answers to your questions, guided support, weekly challenges, writing prompts, and so much more for $49 per month.

Give me a month and I’ll get you started in your travel writing journey.
