If you think your problems in the Travel Industry are unique or somehow different than other industries, I am afraid you exhibiting a mild form of denial.
The common denominator among all the groups I speak to is the fact that they are all people. And all (most) people strive to do well for themselves, their families and their company.

- This is a good example of staying in front of prospects without “hawking” your services.
