“Travel is like a giant blank canvas, and the painting on that canvas is only limited by one’s imagination.” –Ross Morley
Great Escape Radio Host, Jody Maberry and Great Escape Publishing Director, Lori Allen introduce us to Kevin Wenning.
“Out of all of the get paid to travel opportunities we publish at Great Escape Publishing, I REALLY love our tour program,” says Lori. “It’s super trendy to go on unique, customized, non-touristy tours—which makes it very profitable right now.”
Kevin is a true entrepreneur who has combined two of his passions into tours: biking and photography. He shares with us the back story…
“I used to commute to work by bike, so it was natural for me to want to jump on a bike when I would travel to a new destination.”
Renting a bike to get where he wanted to go became a regular part of Kevin’s travel style. Later, he added photography to his biking trips. Over time, he began to piece his ideas together. He talked to some friends who were also taking international biking vacations and discovered there was a market for this unique travel style.
Listen in as Kevin shares with us several things including…
- What inspired him to create his tours
- His marketing strategy
- The types of people who are interested in his style of tours (it wasn’t what he expected)
- The excitement of traveling with like-minded people
- The importance of staying prepared for opportunities that come your way
