Glenna Griffin is a travel consultant with WorldVentures who teaches ordinary people how to have a travel lifestyle.
Note: Glenna and I go way back. She was one of the first women I connected with when I left my home office and started networking. Check out our networking tips video from 2013.
Describe your business:
My business is a travel club, not just club, it’s a travel lifestyle. We show people how they are able to take affordable vacations. I am passionate about travel and the need for people to take vacations. Vacations are about memories and memories have no price tag.
How did you get started in your business?
My sponsor was visiting Linen ‘n Things just before they closed in Katy. Met my son, he said he wasn’t interested but thought I would be. He gave me her card and I set up a time to meet. After looking at the concept I knew it was for me. I previously worked in the travel industry and loved to travel and this gave me the opportunity for a travel lifestyle.
What was the biggest hurdle you had to overcome in your business?
My biggest hurdle I have had to overcome is learning how to network. I had never been part of a multilevel marketing company. I was totally out of my comfort zone.
How has this hurdle made you better?
I have learned how to network and be comfortable talking to people I don’t know.
