Thirteen years ago, I searched and wrestled with appropriate names for my business, dumping ideas on friends, relatives and co-workers (at my then full-time job). I had tons of clever names but none seemed to catch the notion of my own personal journey so much as "Discover Your World Travel".
As a young person, reading was my way of discovering the world. Travel was usually throughout the USA and I was awed by the different cultures, vast scenery and "awesomeness" that was within our own borders. And yet, I knew through the books I read there was so much more to see and explore.
My father was the one to open up my world of travel and we shared some great times. He encouraged in me a sense of boldness and discovery of other people's experiences.
WHAT ABOUT THE WEB NAME?
MyTravelShopper.com was purely born of a desire to serve my clients in a very special, customer focused way. Spending time in the Pacific NW, I had enjoyed shopping in a particular department store that excelled in service. The moment you entered the store and heard that grand piano playing you knew you were going to experience a different style of shopping.
When I chose MyTravelShopper.com I remembered the personal shoppers of this department store. Where your preferences are remembered, and you received a phone call when your favorite items were on sale. They got to know you, your sizes, favorite colors and your wardrobe. I wanted to give that level of personal, custom service.
So, I built my business with those foundation stones and thoughts. It would be personalized and focused on the customer. Not for a quick sale but for the long-term professional relationship. I take pride in crafting great travel packages, partnering with wonderful vendors who deliver good quality products/service and bringing my client added value throughout the travel planning process.
