TravelTalkRADIO and BusinessTravelRADIO Your connection to the experts in travel and lifestyle.

Thank you for joining us this week. In our 17 years of working in the travel industry,
we are experiencing a time when there is more positive news about travel than ever before. Business travel is on the rise, airlines are becoming profitable, and cabin fever is all but eradicated with the onslaught of new and exciting experiences.

Perhaps one of the most exciting pieces we uncover today is the opportunity for those who want to join the industry, but have no idea how to begin. There are many niches in the travel industry where necessity has become the mother of invention. In fact, we see more and more products being developed for leisure and business travelers every month. Today we will examine a career that perhaps Moses himself could have started - the Tour Director.

Thomas Steinmetz from eTurboNews
and Sandy take a bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge, during Thomas's brief stop
in San Francisco last month.

With all due respect, if there had been an International Tour Management Institute (ITMI) for Moses to attend, perhaps he would not have gotten lost for 40 years. The good news is, ITMI is here for you today, and they welcome new students every month. Check out our first interview this week and pack your bags!
