Hello friend, 

I am back with another #TBTSeries and this one was Super FUN and does not need much of an introduction. Why? Well, It's a Youtube video that our friends at HAR (Host Agency Review) recorded while we recorded the podcast episode of Travel Agent Chatter. 

Steph is like my spirit animal and I had a blast. We talked about Destination Weddings (of course!), Social Media Marketing and Systems! 

Check it out Here: https://youtu.be/M3LLPp4qiGg

I am grateful for the opportunity to share my story and I hope it inspires you in some way. 

Enjoy!
