Getting to know – Audrey from Aloha Travel
Audrey, like most momtrepreneurs, has two passions – her family and her business. Finding balance is always difficult but the benefits of being there for your family and being able to run a successful, supportive business make it all worth it!
Are you a momtrepreneur, dadtrepreneur or familytrepreneur? Tell us more about how it all started?
It has been my dream to have a career in the travel industry. However, with the working hours and my 3 year old son, it was really hectic. I decided to start my own online travel agency.
I have been enjoying the flexible hours and the great advantages for my clients such as easy online bookings, great customer service, many options for all quote requests and giving them as much info as possible to assist them with their decision making.
What has been your greatest success?
Managing my time between my son and work.
And your biggest failure?
Not starting my business sooner.
What advice would you give to other familytrepreneurs who are just starting out?
To start a business that you have a passion for. Be prepared to put in a lot of hours. Save as much as possible as it takes time for clients to trust you and for your company name to be established.
What is your favourite quote?
Live, laugh, love
Anything else you wish share?
Never give up on your dreams.
