Health and Wellness Fair

Kelly and Trevor just returned from a wonderful day in National City. Thank you to all the sponsors of the Health and Wellness Fair and to all the vendors from Sharp and the Super Dentists to Souplantation and The University of Phoenix. Every potential client that we spoke to today, hopefully, walked away with a better knowledge about "why using a travel agent" is more beneficial. Travel agents do all the work for you and they can sometimes get you the same or better that what you see online. E-mail me the information you have on your computer screen and before you click PAY see if I can help you. It never hurts to ask. I look forward to working with all of you!
