Hi Cherie,

Thought I would drop you a quick line. It's been almost a full year since I completed your on-line course (end of September). I have completed a full season with EF Explore America and am in full throttle with Paragon Tours.

I have passed my year end review with flying colors at EF and have been invited back for next season with a "not so bad" raise. This has all worked out well. I leave tomorrow AM for a Maine Booth Bay Harbor tour which at this time of the year will be beautiful.

I do have to tell you that your course has opened the doors and the information learned is as good as anywhere else. I constantly get asked by other TD's what year I went to … and really knock their socks off when I told them where I was trained. Most, after paying big bucks, the very expensive travel school … are amazed and some are "really put off" because I got the same job as they did without paying thousands of dollars. I can stand my ground with the best of them. Of course, the knowledge is one thing, but once learned, it's the personality that makes the tour (and tips :-)).

Anyway, that’s it for now and thanks again!!!!!!!

Thank you so very much for everything that you have done to contribute towards launching my career as a tour director. Your book, Tour Director Training Guide, get paid to travel, is like a bible to me for working in the tourism industry. In addition to reading your book, earning a Certificate of Completion for Professional Tour Management Training made me think about my life and experiences and focus on why I want to be a tour director and taught me how to achieve my goal. I just got off the phone with you, where you spent an extraordinary amount of time giving me positive feedback and tips and suggestions for my future. I think that talking with you, reading your book and taking your class have been one of the best educational and instructional experiences in my life. I will remember information that I learned from you and carry notes with me for the rest of my career. You've helped me with education and training for working in the tourism industry to specific comments about my resume and how to prepare for job interviews.

Everything was fantastic!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart and the soles of my tour director shoes.?

Cherie Anderson’s course, Professional Tour Management Training, has changed my life! The tools she provides will help get you noticed and in the door. I landed my first job soon after I graduated. Such a small investment in her wonderful class has yielded such big results. I now work full-time as a professional tour director and port lecturer for a cruise line. I am seeing the world and am loving every minute of it.
