Often the main concern for people considering becoming an independent contractor with Australian Escapes is: "How soon will I start receiving an income?" The answer is: "just 3 to 4 weeks*" subject to learning and application. If you have the desire to be successful in home-based travel consulting then in a few weeks you should start receiving an above-average, steady income. Plus you can save $4,000 to $6,000 per year or more in work-related expenses.
If you can work without money pressure for 3 to 4 weeks you'll never look back. All you really need to know is that the travel industry is right for you and that you want the freedom of working from home. You also must be willing to learn our methods and systems.
