Thanks to Tammy, I not only was able to turn the wedding from hell to a one that I am profiting nicely from (was even able to have 90% of the wedding book excursions and transfers which before they declined), I was able to get free travel to attend the wedding (client really wants me there for some reason), and got new clients (some of the wedding guests) who who want me to book outside trips (some of which have already booked those trips with me). Other client trips have not been this stressful but, Tammy knows how stressful this one was for me because I expressed it to her during T.A.S.K. As the wedding approaches in less than two weeks, it has gotten easier and easier because of Tammy’s advice. I don’t know why I waited 2 years to go to T.A.S.K. but thank God I went! I am a firm believer in give props and thanks when due.
Thanks so much Tammy!!!
TASK will make you a travel agent rock star
I meet Tammy at an industry event in Baltimore in August of 2014 where she was the keynote speaker. I was blown away by her testimony and I was encourage with her resilience. We had a round robin session to talk to vendors which was only 5 minutes. In this limited amount of time I was intrigued with her TASK program. I knew I needed to have an opportunity to talk to her about her TASK KIT, TASK mentoring program and TASK Live. I took her card and I told her that I would call her the very next day. Yes I called Tammy the very next day around 3:30 pm and I remember saying to her. “Hello Tammy…This is Valencia. I meet you yesterday in Baltimore and I told you that I would call you today.”
Needless to say, I started mentoring with Tammy and went to her TASK Live in June of 2015. Since becoming a TASK student, Tammy has showed me how to close more sales, how to increase my clientele and to grow my business. She gives you all the tools to increase your commissions, to be able to develop and grow long standing strategic partnerships with others inside and outside of the travel industry and is an amazing mentor. She is always there for you but please note if you get off track, she will “Whip” you back into shape. Believe me know and she recently re-ignited the fire in my business but most of all in me. She really cares about your growth personally, this industry and your growth of your business…No strings attached. I am so grateful that she is in my life and she has really shown me how to be a travel entrepreneur/agent rock star. Thank you for all that you do.

I came across Tammy Levent just by chance. I had an Incentive Travel group that I was having problems trying to book and searched the internet for someone who trains in Incentive Travel and came across Tammy’s name. I called her and she offered to help me with no strings attached. After speaking to her I purchased her online course which I have since completed.
In trying to book my group I was only able to find one supplier willing to book my group with a $900 commission after my host agency’s cut and $50 per name change if needed. Tammy was able to book it for me with 2 free name changes and a $3100 commission with Tammy getting $600 on top of my $3100. Since then she has helped with other bookings always increasing the commission I would have gotten through my host. As a result I have signed up for her TASK Live training in April 2016.
Starting in January of 2016 I will be leaving my host agencies and going independent. Tammy has set me up with a writer, printer, and a web designer while walking me through the steps to set up my new business. I don’t know how she has enough time in the day to help everyone and run her own business, but she does. She has personally answered every question I have had be it by phone or email.
If you are thinking about taking the leap of faith and following Tammy, she is well worth the time, money, and effort to turn your business around and make it very profitable!
I hope this email finds you well. I attended the Travel Industry Exchange event this past week. I also attended your session and truly enjoyed all the information given. I have your flyer that you gave out at the trade show with the Offer for your Travel Agent Success Kit. How do I go about ordering that?

I cannot thank you enough for your generosity, and I am so excited to learn all that I can from you. And thank you for sharing your inspirational story with us all.

Hi there Tammy,
Thanks so much, not only for your VERY generous offer for your T.A.S.K. program
but for your vision and insight! Just what I was needing to super charge and revision my
agency….I’ve been just riding along on the crest and didn’t realize that the wave had
broken and I was landing on the beach, at least, until recently.
I look forward to the log in information and to JUMPING in with both feet and all
of my energy as soon as I have this data!
Bless you and I am truly grateful for this opportunity from you.

Good morning Tammy !
I took your class yesterday, and you asked for me to email you so I can receive my code.
I congratulate you again on a wonderful class !
I am the travel agent in Miami that also belongs to the Travel Industry Association of Florida as a member of the board of directors.
Let us keep in touch, it would be great if we could schedule a Saturday morning half day seminar for our members.
I attended your seminar today at the Travel Industry Exchange event, and was extremely impressed by all that you had to say! Thank you for sharing your story and your enthusiasm.
I was not following any of the specific certification programs, mostly because there were so many interesting sessions from several different categories. During your session, you stated that if we sent you an email request we could receive a code of TASK. I would really love to get it and look forward to implementing your ideas and suggestions. Thank you so much for presenting at the conference!
I just wanted to thank you for an amazing few days while attending T.A.S.K LIVE in Jamaica, I thoroughly enjoyed our time together and really embraced a lot of Kick Ass information ~ I am a graduate!
I think everyone was positively affected by the group and their dynamic, it was very enlightening getting to know everyone individually as well.
Travel sales is a business of resources and without having good resources and the partners we need to execute them, we are like everyone else. Thank you for training us to make that distinction and how to excel and break from Mom and Pop agencies to Nationwide and World experts as sellers of travel.

2015 TASK live
In October 2014 I went out on a limb and made the investment to attend the first ever TASK in Montego, Jamaica. It was the best move I could have made as a travel professional as the material was relevant to my every day job and Tammy pushed me to take chances and build the infrastructure of my company that will serve as the foundation for success in the future. I could not have made a better investment in myself and the future of my travel consultancy. I highly encourage anyone serious about taking their travel business to the next level to trust Tammy Levent and attend TASK!!
Panama Travel Consultants
The first time I heard the name Tammy Levent, was at a sales event in Baltimore, Maryland in September of 2014. She spoke to a large group of Travel Agents and told us we needed to work smarter if we were going to survive in this business. I was immediately drawn to her enthusiasm and passion for the Travel Industry. At that Baltimore Event, I was given a flyer which had information regarding participating in the T.A.S.K. Live Seminar In October of 2014. Less than 24 hours later, I had enthusiastically signed up for the first T.A.S.K. Live Seminar hosted by Tammy Levent of Elite Travel Management Group at Secrets Wild Orchid in Jamaica. The event was far more than I could have ever hoped for and the partnership that I now have with Tammy has changed my business in more ways than I could have ever imagined. The most important information I walked away from these 3 days was simply this… I learned that the answer to my lack of growth was not money! That was an eye opener for me, as the words “if only I had enough money” would play over and over in my head at night.
Although I have been in business for over 20 years, I knew that if I was going to survive in this industry that I loved so much, that I was going to need to change the way I did things. I was given a composition book and was told that this would become my “bible”. A notebook that I would use to write down everything that I was to begin to work on. During the 3 days I spend with Tammy, I would keep copious notes in this notebook. I came home with a list that seemed like only superman would be able to keep up with. I began to think to myself, “Can I do this?” I found out very quickly that not only could I do this, but I did! As I look back at this notebook today, less than 6 months later, here is a list of what I have accomplished:
- Completed a 138 questionnaire in preparation for T.A.S.K. Live
- Watched hours of video by Tammy Levent in preparation for T.A.S.K. Live

“Tammy is one of the best mentors in the industry. Her entrepreneurial spirit shines through in all that she does. Whether you are an experienced travel consultant or a new agent looking to grow your business, Tammy will challenge you to think outside the box and push the envelope a little further than you ever thought imaginable. She is strong-willed; she is driven; she is creative; she is intense; and she is successful.
The T.A.S.K – Travel Agent Success Kit that Tammy created is a perfect program for those who are looking for a few more ideas to drive their business a little further in 2015. I joined T.A.S.K. over a year ago, and while I already had a thriving agency in West Texas, I implemented some of the strategies on which Tammy focuses. From 2013 to 2014, my business experienced 192% growth. Can I guarantee that kind of growth if you sign up for T.A.S.K.? The answer is no, and I am not sure Tammy will make those claims either. What I can tell you is the obvious. An open-mind, hard work, and dedication will get you where you want to be, and having a mentor and friend in Tammy Levent has made the ride that much more enjoyable!
Travel on, friends!

I have worked with most industries, however travel was not one of them. So, I went in search of a forward thinker in this industry and found you! So thank you!!
After reading your 6 tips on open jaw this morning, I just wanted to thank you for your timely advice. In April of 2012, I underwent shoulder surgery, nine days later, my 21 year old daughter passed suddenly.
The past three years have been a struggle, there are days that I do not want to get out of bed, but I do. I know that my Baby is with me, pushing all the time.
In 2013, when some of the fog had lifted, I was no longer able to perform my job and was faced with the reality that I would have to create a new life.
I thought to myself, what have you always wanted to do, the answer has always been, be a travel agent.
I bought a package to be an Expedia Cruise Specialist. The reality of low commission, led me to pursue my other dream of being an event coordinator, to subsidize my income. The fog has invaded many times over the past 34 months, making it difficult to focus on my training.
A series of small steps have led me back to my dream. I started immersing myself in my training a few weeks ago and am very pleased to say that I am ready for this exciting challenge.
Yesterday, I did my first booking. Okay, it was for my sister and myself, but now I know I can do it.
Sorry this was meant to be a short thank you, on a morning that I woke up feeling motivated.
So thank you.
I had the pleasure of only recently getting to know Tammy and attend a TASK seminar which she had presented in Jamaica. I believe Tammy’s professionalism, depth of knowledge and insight in the travel industry has made her an invaluable asset and resource to my business. Tammy’s interpersonal and teaching/coaching competencies are helping my business get to “the next level” and beyond. Tammy is an excellent model of how an individual can be successful despite the hardships and challenges that business and life present to us. I highly recommend TASK and the opportunity to work with Ms. Levent

Your course is fantastic. You have put it together beautifully. Yes, you gave me what I needed quickly, which was the leveraging part of the travel business.

I am choosing to spend my day working on the amazing videos that are part of the TASK Force Travel Agent Success Kit from Tammy Levent, one of the biggest names in the Travel Industry. Whether you are starting out as a Travel Agent, or a seasoned veteran, Tammy can show you how to take your business to the next level. She’s an amazing resource that I am happy to call a key strategic partner with my business, and I look forward to see what kind of role she will play in taking Your Travel and Cruise Concierge to the next level in 2014! Thank you Tammy for coming into my life – you are a blessing.
– Susan Jacobs Leonidas, Your Travel and Cruise Concierge, Tampa, Florida
As a travel professional since 1985, I read your story thoroughly. You are a wonderful example of a travel agent who sticks with the client until they are safely back at home. Under these circumstances of the complimentary trip, you were between too many obstacles to do anything other than their insurance. I pray he makes a full and speedy recovery and AZAMARA pays for their transportation back home.
-Mannette Raines, Travel With Mannette as part of Travel Alliance Network
The Travel Industry has always been an industry built on relationships. All of our successes are built around it. Whether it’s the relationship a travel agent has with their preferred wholesaler, their client, or the myriad of other relationships you build everyday, it’s important we all build them and respect them. At GoGo, our longstanding relationship with Travel Agents have helped us mutually prosper. We respect that relationship and are continuously looking for new creative ways to grow them. The biggest tool to have in business are your ears. While it sounds simple, the act of listening and understanding will lead to some of the most profitable partnerships you could have.
-Jim, GoGo Worldwide Vacations

This is Norm, Marie and I spoke with you last week, Thank You Thank You for the opportunity to work with you, so I’m going to take you up on it, I need your help.
Okay, several of your videos focused on writing for a magazine/paper. Well I took that suggestion and damn, it worked like a charm.
Well it worked tooooooo well, since we are new to travel industry and I’m a computer geek, not a writer, what do I do NOW?? LOL
Sorry for being clueless…I personally didn’t think it would move this quickly.
