My name is Michelle Hampton. I am a wife, mother of 2 and a grandmother of 2. I have been an entrepreneur since 1992. I had a temporary agency, I have a graphics design firm, a tractor trailer repair company, a trucking company and my travel company. I have had success with all of the companies but none compared to the travel company. Since joining YTB, I have been able to spend more time with my family as it is an internet based business. I have traveled to places that without YTB I probably would have never gone, for example Tahiti.
I enjoy working from home, but I truly enjoy being able to travel for cheap and get paid for it. My husband and I are closer since we have more quality time together. Since it is a home-based business, my children were my employees and they just loved being able to help mom out. Now that they are young adults they have decided to join the business themselves because they like the freedom and lifestyle it provides.
When this opportunity was present to me, I jumped at the opportunity not because of the money, but because of the travel benefits. I watched my mother and father work hard all of their lives and not be able to see the world. In 2002, I went to Hawaii with my husband. During our trip to Hawaii, my father called me everyday to ask about the weather, what I saw and what did we do. You see, he was trying to picture in his head what Hawaii was like. When we returned we showed him all the pictures and he was so excited. He died a week later. I then decided that I wanted to do something different. I wanted to be able to see different parts of the earth that God created and YTB makes that possible.
After experiencing the travel benefits and talking to people about my WHY, I soon discovered that there are many people that want the same thing. I enjoy helping people realize their potential and Dream again. So I tapped into the marketing side of YTB, marketing is optional with this company, but it has a very lucrative compensation plan for the marketing side (the compensation plan is copyrighted). So not only do I make money 60% commissions from booking travel on my personalized website but when I refer someone to this business I also get paid; and travel for Cheap. That is AWESOME
You must have a Passion for helping people. I have always loved to help people, now I help people see that they CAN dream about living and actually realize those dreams. Since travel is your business it would help if you like to explore different places and see the world.
There are many ways to market your business and sell travel. Everyone loves to travel, most think they can’t afford it. Since this is my PASSION, I talk to everyone I meet about this business. I feel it is a once in a lifetime opportunity, just like Microsoft and Google were. You can have home parties, opportunity meetings at hotels, online meetings, etc. It is your business, do what works for you.
