"I've been with YTB for 6 years now. I got into YTB because of the travel. In the beginning I mostly worked on mine and my family's travel. Then, I put together my first group and within 2 weeks, I received 2 more groups. I had no choice but to pull up my sleeves and learn Carnival Cruise Lines inside and out. I have been managing groups for about 3 or 4 years now and I receive most of them through referrals. I have earned several accreditations through education, including my Master Cruise Counselor with CLIA. Education is definitely a priority in managing my groups. I love the travel industry, and I'm so happy I was given this opportunity! I'm glad I made the decision to go with YTB and actually stick with them! I am looking forward to many more great years!"

"I have always loved to travel and decided to join YTB when encouraged by a neighbor in 2004. With the help of the YTB training classes, courses at various vendors, FAM trips, and research on the Internet for customers, I have learned and grown tremendously in my travel knowledge. I am now ACC certified with CLIA, a Commodore with Princess Cruises, and a Travel Agent with YTB at their top commission contract.
Although I have booked several individual vacations, hotels and airfare, my main focus is group cruises and escorted tours. They not only produce the most income, but they also generate referrals, which are a surefire way to produce more income. My third group cruise in 3 years sails in March with 40 passengers. I have received 19 commission checks over the last 23 months. Although they range between a low of $10 to a high of $6,650, this income has paid my travel costs and allowed me to sock away money for future trips. I am retired and on a fixed income, and in this economy, this additional income helps my husband and I take the dream trips we have planned for our retirement.
In June 2011, I celebrated my 50th High School reunion with 32 classmates and friends on a 12-day cruise tour to Alaska. I set up the cruise and then put it on the YTB groups booking engine. Each person booked their cruise through my website. Everyone said it was very simple and they loved it. We even had a couple join us that we didn't know. They found it through another YTB RTA. The YTB support personnel worked with me throughout the process to be sure I didn't miss a cutoff date and that my clients were satisfied."

"Prior to drinking Ganovia Coffee, I had been experiencing discomfort in my right shoulder for the last several months. A few days after drinking Ganovia Coffee, it dawned on me that I had no more discomfort! I must also confess that I have a “sweet tooth.” Since drinking Ganovia Coffee, I no longer crave sweets! What a difference it has made for me!"
