Winning #sbs back in November 2010 was fantastic! Bookings have been increasing month by month since and the #sbs community are extremely supportive. It's a great place to be.
I have been a college lecturer and also worked in marketing and promotional work including cold-calling and telesales. When the course I was teaching was downgraded and my job disappeared some years ago, a friend asked me if I would work as a "jumper-oot" on the tour. Some months later he wanted to sell the tour. As somebody once said, "I liked it so much, I bought the company". It uses all my skills and I love what I do.
If you have no passion about what you do, why should anyone else? Accept that there will be setbacks at times, but never accept that they'll beat you
