Do You Have A Greater Purpose?


I just read an email that Jackie in GA sent to his database.  We’ve worked together in the travel industry for over 10 years.  It’s a very good read and a great point.


What get’s you up in the morning? What is your purpose in life?

I thought about this again recently. I saw a documentary on the CEO of Southwest airlines.

It’s a great story, he talked about what drove him forward in the early days of Southwest Airlines was their purpose which was to make air travel affordable for everyone. He saw it as a personal mission of freedom.

It immediately hit me…

I have always felt very similar, we give people the opportunity to travel to destinations all over the world at steep discounts. Take these two example from clients who posted on Facebook.

Karen and her husband just celebrated their 40th Anniversary using their Coastal Travel package. The booked a 7 night condo on a lake in Arkansas for $270.00 out the door. Saving them $577,00 off the normal rates.


Selene who is a single mom with 2 young girls who just sent me a private message last night. Selene purchased a Coastal Travel package from me several years ago. This is what she said,

"Picked up the Wanna Get Away 3 days, 2 nights for tax only = $24.80 total. We are at the The Resort at Governor’s Crossing, a popular area of Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. Look at the size of this room! For $12.50/night?? $224.92 is the resorts rate for the two nights. 4th floor, 2 double beds in a 1 bedroom condo with a view of the pool".

A mom who otherwise may not be able to afford to take her daughters out of town with out our Coastal Travel packages are now staying at a 4 star resort creating memories that will last a life time!

It doesn’t matter what business you start from home make sure it’s something that gives you a greater purpose in your life than what you are living right now.

To Your Success,
