About the author

As a travel advisor, I love coaching my clients on their travel dreams. My background as a mastermind group facilitator and retreat coach makes me uniquely qualified to do this! When I work with my clients on their travel plan, they discover new travel ideas and we meet in person or by video conference to discuss their results and brainstorm trips that match everyone’s desires and interests.

I am passionate about travel and learning as much as I can about this beautiful world we live in. My first travel business was in college; planning, selling and chaperoning spring break and summer trips. During my 20’s, I traveled through Europe on a shoe string budget. I have had my own business as a Group Retreat Planner and Facilitator for 20 years and I love to plan group and multigenerational travel. My family and I are all scuba certified and go on three week, luxury vacations around the world each summer as well as special scuba trips and ski vacations.

I am also one of a few select Virtuoso Wanderlist Certified Advisors. Wanderlist is a Travel Portfolio Plan to build your bucket list and curate the best trips for families over a few years time. Its a deeper relationship with my clients where I specialize in them and we map out a game plan of favorite places, types of travel and experiences as well as a budget for them and all their extended travel companions.

This book is derived from my very successful workshops, called "Travel Talks". I facilitate these for various businesses and their clients. In particular with Financial Planners, as putting together a travel portfolio goes well with having a financial plan for your future. Your most valuable asset is your leisure time!

I am also very comfortable on camera and plan to do as much press and on camera interviews as possible. I have been an actress since a child and have professionally worked for producers to teach in their online corporate training videos for sale.

I'm building several partnerships with established brands. Along with the book launch, I have designed and am co-branding a new line of travel bags similar to the Prada nylon bags as well as a line of travel inspired jewelry. I am also part of a few teams of travel club websites including one that is travelers and bloggers. We will be making the book available to all members. My goal is to sell the book in every airport, bookstore and online and offering the products through my partners stores, clubs and on my website.

$1500 Custom Travel Bucket List Consultations and Portfolio

0 readers

Some people find the very idea of a list to be daunting.
Your list is supposed to be deeply personal and meaningful. It’s intended to launch you on a series of life-fulfilling experiences . . . well, you might be intimidated by the prospect of taking on such a project all by yourself.
That’s one wonderful way in which an experienced and travel-wise professional can support you.
I would be delighted to help you on this journey.
When I work with my clients on their travel plan, they discover new travel ideas using an amazing, private online Netflix style travel portal filled with videos, articles, music and activities from around the world. Then we meet in person or by video conference to discuss their results and brainstorm trips that match everyone’s desires and interests. To cap off the experience, I give them a gorgeous wooden travel portfolio, filled with all of their information, survey results, budget, maps, a travel trip sequence and schedule. After you have your portfolio completed, I will be on the lookout for special offers and unique journeys comparable with your dreams.

Bonus description

I will present a Keynote address or hands-on, in-person workshop guiding your team to build their travel portfolios (including a schedule and budget). I'll show that when an organization’s culture encourages time off, employees are more likely to benefit from vacation time and those benefits last longer. Upon returning from vacation, employees who said their organization’s culture encourages time off were more likely to report having more motivation (71 percent) and were also more likely to say they are more productive (73 percent) and that their work quality is better (70 percent).

Synopsis

Everyone wants to look back on a life filled with cherished moments they’ve shared with family and friends. But for many people, planning a lifetime of travel with such a high bar can be overwhelming. Where do you start? Where do you go? How do you ensure these experiences will be extraordinary for everyone? Many plan trips based on popular destinations and then come home a bit disappointed that it wasn't as memorable as they expected. What was missing was a Travel Bucket List; a simple but effective long term plan that motivates and guides you through one amazing journey to the next.

In "Your Travel Bucket List", you are encouraged to plan well ahead and your creativity is sparked with thoughtful journaling prompts, quotes and conversation starters to help do a deep dive into why you travel and what you most want out of your trips. There are also inspiring true stories of other travelers' and families' bucket lists as well as stunning visuals to give you new and unique trip ideas. As you complete the book, you will uncover what you love to do, create a travel style, and set the bar high with goals of what you want to accomplish on your trips. The final worksheets help you set goals and create tailored plans to achieve your travel dreams.

Cranthorpe Millner logo Cranthorpe Millner

250 copies • Partial manuscript.
Cranthorpe Millner operates a hybrid publishing model. This means, should an author pass our editors’ strict filtering system, we can offer different kinds of agreements depending on the author and the manuscript. With some authors, we work under a ‘traditional’ model, whereby we cover the full cost of publication and the author is offered industry-standard royalties (8-10%). To some authors, we offer what we call a partnership or contributory agreement, whereby the author is asked for a financial contribution so that we may share the risk and enter into a partnership together to publish the author’s book. In this case, the author receives around 60-75% royalties.

1106 Design provides book design, production, and publishing services for independent authors who seek all the quality of traditional publishing without forfeiting their rights and royalties in return. 1106 Design provides traditional publisher quality with one-stop, end-to-end services from copyediting to worldwide distribution. We operate just like a publisher with one difference: YOU maintain complete control of your book, your schedule, and most importantly, your payments.

In our model, distribution accounts are set up in your name. When a book is sold, the retailer takes a cut, the printing cost is deducted, and the balance is deposited directly into your bank account, never ours first. The difference can amount to several more dollars per book in net revenue to you. Our most popular package for non-fiction books, 50,000 words and under, including copyediting, cover design, interior layout, proofreading, eBook formatting, and distribution set up in your name is just $7,353.
