Working 9 to 5 – Is it really the best way to earn a living?

It's the ability to work around your family life. It's the freedom and flexibility of choosing your own hours and your own clients, and always being there for your children.

It’s the ability to work around your family life. It’s the freedom and flexibility of choosing your own hours and your own clients, and always being there for your children.

And it’s a freedom that can be yours every week, for the rest of your life.

The regular 9 to 5 grind is the most common way to earn a living, but is it the best way?

Well probably not.

Already, hundreds of Travel Agents around Australia have taken the plunge into going mobile with MTA.

And they’ve never looked back.

But make no mistake.

Working from home is serious business, and just like any other job you’ll need to show up at the desk each and every day, ready and willing to put in the hard yards.

But unlike working in a traditional retail travel or corporate environment, the rewards of being your own boss are astronomical.

Not only do you have the freedom and flexibility to live your life on your terms, but it can also help you reap massive financial rewards – the kind of income that can completely change your life.

Here are five ways being a Mobile Travel Agent with MTA can help you earn more money selling travel.


1. You can choose your own clients


This is a big one.

No longer do you have to serve whoever sits in front of you or calls your office – from the budget backpacker to the Internet savvy millennial keen on getting the cheapest price possible.

As a Mobile Travel Agent working for yourself, you can choose who you work with.

Perhaps it’s the 50+ cruise market that you want to target.

Or perhaps it’s high-end leisure travel that floats your boat.

Either way, you can choose to only work with clients who value your service over the bottom line.


2. You can choose your own suppliers


Some suppliers pay higher commissions than others.

And as a Mobile Travel Agent with MTA, you can choose to work only with those wholesalers that allocate a sizeable portion of their profit to you as a hefty commission.

They look after you, you look after them. It’s a win-win situation.


3. You get a superior commission structure


Forget about earning a measly 10 percent commission on your total sales at the end of each month.

Working as a Mobile Travel Agent with MTA entitles you to earn 70 percent (and more on select products) of the commission you bring in – this is what’s going to make a massive difference in your life.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, that other 30 percent goes towards giving you unparalleled back-office support, marketing assistance, free in-house ticketing, choice of GDS, professional indemnity insurance, Virtuoso and Cruiseco membership (at no extra cost), and more.

4. You can spend more time with your family


Being able to work from home means you can work around your family life and always be there for your children. In other words, you can work to live, not live to work!

Such freedom and flexibility to create your own schedule means you’ll be able to create the perfect work/life balance, one that’s sustainable and compatible with every member of your family, leaving everyone with a smile on their face each and every day.


5. You can work when you’re most productive


Not everyone’s a morning person.

Some people find it hard to be productive at 9am on the dot, and prefer to sleep a little more and start their day later.

As a Mobile Travel Agent you can work when you want, and that means you don’t have to waste a good couple of hours every morning struggling to get into the swing of things.

Being your own boss means you can work when you’re most productive, and utilise those hours to bring in the most income.
