I am a planner. I am not a ‘fair weather’ planner, not a sometimes-if-the-task-requires-it planner. I am a full fledged, sit-down-with-a-pen-and-paper list maker! I love to plan the details, from grocery lists to multi day vacations for multiple families. I love to plan. I plan parties, international travels, family outings, birthdays, showers, church functions, shopping trips, weddings, volunteer benefits, funerals, reunions, vacations, business events, children’s events, you name it I have planned for it. It is in my nature, it is in my DNA, it is part of who I am.
I feel my business partner and I balance each other nicely. At today’s owners meeting (which I planned) we discussed topics related to our business, Soul Experiences. During the meeting the subject of “what our roles are” came up. I have always thought of my partner, who also happens to be my mother, as futuristic. She is always thinking of ways to change/grow our business. She will have an idea, bring it up to me and before you know it we are off and running on a new project. I am the planner. I work out all the fine details of how we get from her vision, to our finished product. We are a great team as professional travel planners and tour guides.
I feel blessed to have this talent and love of planning. I am very lucky to also have a passion almost as great for travel as well.
