In episode 146 Steph and the lovely Lindsay Lauer of Travel Leaders 365 answer your excellent questions! 1. Would the Accelerator course be helpful if I've been an employee? I'm thinking of going on my own. I do a volume of around $1M and have 2.5 yrs experience with over 1000 cruise bookings. --Anonymous 2. Can I require my agency's independent contractors (ICs) to work exclusively with my agency? A few prospective ICs have told me that exclusivity is not allowed by law. Is this correct? --Anonymous 3. I’m wondering if I can start with a host agency right away, or if I need to complete any training first. Does it vary by agency? --Donna A.
