At the time you sign up for the mentorship option, we'll set up a call for a strategy session. This will allow us to hone in your goals and the steps you need to take to reach them. This is a chance for us to create a clear plan that is indivudualized to where you are in your travel writing or blogging journey.

Quarterly Strategy Session via phone or Skype

These calls allow us to check in on your individual progress and re-strategize. The calls are one-on-one and personalized to your goals and where you are in your travel blogging journey.

Academy Media Trips

One of the many perks in the Academy is media trips! The media trips are a great way to work with tourism boards and PR. Another huge perk is spending time with a group of fun travel writers, bloggers and photographers! It's amazing what you learn from each other during a trip-- it's actually invaluable! We have visited:

  • Scottsdale, Arizona
  • Tucson, Arizona
  • San Diego, California
  • Puerto Penasco, Mexico
  • Cancun, Mexico
  • Mexico Wine Country
  • and many other locations

Live Group Coaching

Each month is a schedule group video call. Many calls I encorporate a lesson or blogging tips. This is also a chance to ask any questions you have about the world of travel writing and blogging. It's also a great opportunity to connect with fellow travel bloggers. 

5-Minute Travel Blogging Tips

5 Minute Tips that are videos. These bite-sized, actionable items are meant to take your blog to the next level quickly. You'll  have access to all videos in the library as well as all new videos as they are created.

One huge perk is I ask for your requests. If you are stuck with any aspect of travel blogging, you simply ask me to create a video tutorial!

Academy Yearly Mastermind plus Media Trip

We meet for three days and focus on everything from writing, photography, social media, monetizing, working with PR, landing more media trips and so much more. I have even brought in special guests to visit and talk about all things travel blogging!

The main purpose of the mastermind is to allow the travel academy members a chance to have focused time to get great feedback about how to take their travel writing or blogging career to the next level.

What I think is an even bigger outcome for the attendees is quality time hanging out as a group.

After the mastermind is a three to five day media trip. How often do you get 5 to 7 days to be with a group of writers and bloggers?
