What is Kinship Travel Academy Membership?
Kinship Travel Academy Membership, or KTA as we affectionately call it around here, is a program for travel advisors, created by travel advisors.
KTA is a monthly membership that every quarter addresses the mind, body and soul of a travel advisor. Each month we release a new education opportunity that focuses in business operations, marketing, or mindset for a travel advisor.FAQ's
Is KTA right for me?
You want to focus on the big picture
KTA prioritizes our own mental and physical health above all else. We give you the tools to work smarter not harder. KTA knows that this is hard sometimes and celebrates each other’s wins and supports each other through our struggles. Finally, KTA believes in a more holistic approach – every quarter we delve into the mind (marketing), body (business operations), and soul (mindset, attitude, heart) of your business.
You are looking for an Inclusive environment for all agents and all agency models
KTA enables an environment that allows you to do you. KTA values community and collaboration over competition – a rising tide lifts all boats.
You believe you are a part of something bigger
KTA practices business in an environmentally and socially responsible way by implementing strategic business practices that support those efforts as well. KTA has zero-tolerance for bigotry and discrimination, and is a big believer in Karma. We want to continue passing on the good vibes and put out good juju into the universe.
You are ready to help write the next chapter in the travel industry
KTA believes everyone has something to contribute – we see your potential before you do and we are experts at helping you understand what you have to give. We believe we must invest in ourselves and our businesses to grow. KTA doesn’t accept “no” – we want to figure out how.
What can I expect?
KTA monthly trainings are released once a month with easy-to-follow videos, done-for-you templates, resource lists, and worksheets. All of the training is online inside our private KTA member only site. Travel Advisor members can view the training videos, connect with others, and compare notes with classmates.
KTA also holds monthly strategy calls where members can call in for strategic advice regarding any issue they are having in their business to ensure they are always moving forward.
You also have access to a members only community where you can collaborate with fellow KTA members, bounce ideas, share resources and finally get the support for your solopreneurship experience that you have been looking for.
Finally, we will be hosting a retreat* for members only, where you will have the opportunity to participate with in person classes, working sessions, collaborative hot seats, and a mini-FAM. Can't participate live? All sessions will be recorded and available in your members-only portal.
