I started reading blogs over five years ago with KathEats; most of my reading is on “healthy living” blogs. They are still the same ones I read & a few have become clients over the years, I’ve never told them but that’s celebrity status to me! One of my very favorite types of posts to read are the “day in the life”! My day to day in the office can really vary; we are appointment only so some days are much busier & others I spend more time on the phone. It’s one of the best parts of this profession, no two days are alike.

9:30AM: Phone’s on – it’s go time! Still sorting through e-mails and any voice-mails…writing my to-do list in Outlook as I go, prioritizing by date.
10:30AM: I’ve already cleared out my inbox leaving those that need responding to, made my first three phone calls of the day to Celtic Tours to start a new Ireland itinerary, ask a question that I received regarding a cruise cabin’s bathroom & call in a payment. Oh & drank my third cup of coffee!
|Hard Work = Success.|
3:00PM: Shoot, I look up and it’s 3 PM already! I’ve met with a client, spoken on the phone with two others & continued to reply & send e-mails. I’d say over 60% of my day is e-mail! It’s a love/hate relationship. A request for a D-Day tour over the anniversary sends me into overdrive as I know lodging is going to be nearly impossible to come by even five months in advance.
Lunch is eaten at my desk between 1-3PM most of the time, especially now that I’m only in the office three days a week, every minute counts.
