Happy New Year! 2016 promises plenty of change and with that, depending upon your outlook, either challenge or opportunity. I confess that I often see change as challenge thinking that ‘new’ means more work or greater risk. My resolution for 2016 is to look for opportunity in every situation, even the ones I would dismiss as too much change (Hello recession!).
This year has special meaning, as it is 25 years since I started Kalahari Management Inc. and dove headfirst into ecotourism. In those days many people had never heard of ecotourism so my leap wasn’t considered a prudent move. It has been an interesting journey as I’ve watched ecotourism’s combination of travel and environmental concern move into all areas of tourism. I’m eager to see what the next quarter-century brings.
25 Years, 25 Conversations
The best celebrations are the ones you share so I’m marking 25 years in business by giving back. I am giving away my time (yes, you read that right) to help other people interested in travel and the earth. I will provide 25 minutes of free consulting time to 25 people. We can’t solve the world’s problems in 25 minutes but perhaps we can tackle some of the smaller issues. Want feedback on your newest tour? Looking for input on your marketing strategy? Need hints on how to find a job? Maybe you just want insider tips on a great holiday destination; I will share the knowledge I’ve gleaned over two decades as a pioneer in the green tourism field with you – gratis!
How Does it Work?
Send me a short email explaining who you are and what you’d like to talk about. I will pick two or three winners each month and we will set up a time to talk via Skype. I’ll be picking the first two winners by January 31st so don’t let the winter blues slow you down. Email today for your FR+EE consultation. If you know someone who doesn’t receive my ezine, but would benefit please share the news.
