We had the good fortune of connecting with Brittany Shuford and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brittany, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
Is there such a thing?? Lol I think I’m just now realizing the importance of having a work life balance. In the past I never had business hours or anything of that nature. So my phone would ring anytime and any place. No matter what I was doing. I would even take my laptop with me LITERALLY everywhere! Recently I purchased a second phone dedicated for my business. Hopefully that helps me balance things a little better. Wish me luck 😉

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m an Independent travel advisor. I have just over 4 1/2 years of experience as an agent. Around 2 1/2 years ago I decided to take on travel full time. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made but not the easiest. My income is based completely on sales. So no sales equals no money!! Last year with the Covid shutdown my income completely stopped. I can honestly say It taught me to not count my chickens before they hatch, I am most proud of how successful my business has become in the last two years. I’m excited to continue booking more travel for new and old clients. Also traveling the world and seeing new places!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
It’s simple my clients deserve all of the credit and recognition for my story. Without them believing in me, constantly booking trips and referring there’s no Journeys with Brittany!
