What I Learned This Week
Hello, and welcome to Tourpreneur episode 91: What I Learned This Week.
This month I have spoken with 2-3 tour operators each day. Some of those conversations you can hear on the Tourpreneur Podcast in our COVID-19 check-in. In this episode, I share why I am so inspired by tour operators optimism and resiliency.
I also share why those touting the Law of Attraction (a.k.a. The Secret) across the tour operator Facebook groups are promoting a delusional type of positive thinking which could end up harming your tour business. That’s not to say they are not well-intentioned but as the Artic Monkeys’ once sang ‘don’t believe the hype!’
The world’s only independent weekly podcast for the tours and activities industry, this is Tourpreneur.
Resources for Tour Operators – What is Tourpreneur Approved?
Not a week goes by when I don’t receive an email from a tour operator who paid for a service/product/tool/app/course that did not deliver.
None of us can afford to be taken for a ride. So today I am asking you to help me create the ‘Tourpreneur Approved’ directory – a free resource for tour operators.
This will be a free online directory of services/products/tools etc. recommended by tour operators for tour operators.
Who have you hired that has helped your business? It could be anything from a bookkeeper to a wordpress expert. Email us here.
