Today we’d like to introduce you to Kendra Hampton.
Hi Kendra, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Growing up, I’ve always had a thing for traveling and seeing different parts of the world, but being the youngest of four to a single parent, it wasn’t many places we were able to go.
Once I turned 16, I paid for my own passport and begged my brother to take me out of the country (my siblings also had a thing for traveling) to my surprise he said okay lol. We decided to go to Cancun, Mexico and I paid my half of the trip. It was the most breathtaking place I’ve ever seen. At that point, I knew that this was something I was going to take seriously.
We went to clubs, went swimming with the dolphins, went to the beach, etc. The trip was nothing short of amazing! That was the start of many trips for me. Last year, I started to look into becoming a business owner, the main thing I was thinking is “what’s something you like to do?” to make sure I picked the right path. Nothing topped traveling so I looked into a business I could do dealing with travel.
One day it hit me “Travel Agent” I can plan trips for other people, especially because people used to always ask me when I took my trips “where did you book this ?” “How did you book that?” So I knew it was perfect. I got started doing my research and here I am now and I couldn’t be more grateful.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
So far with me being in business less than a year yes it has been pretty smooth thank, God!
I’ve run into things such as cancellations, rude clients, flight changes last minute but nothing that makes me any less excited to keep pushing and becoming better at what I do.
We’ve been impressed with Dream Travel Vacations, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
So I am a Travel Agent/Travel specialist here in Saint Louis but help clients from all over the world. My goal is to help as many people as I can to see the different places of the world. I plan vacations, cruises, cabins, all-inclusive resorts whatever it is the client wants.
I help people see countries they never thought they would be able to see. I also offer payment plans so everyone has a chance to go on any of these trips and pay for them. I’m known for sending clients on the most adventurous, exciting, lit trips that someone can have, lol.
What sets me apart from the others is it’s nothing that I won’t do for my clients, I’ve gone into my own pockets for some of my clients just because I want everything to go perfect and everyone to have a great time. I go out of my way for each of my clients to make sure they know/have everything they need for a successful trip.
I’m most proud of the number of people I’ve been able to help take trips and hear the stories when they come home about how amazing it was. That’s what keeps me going more than anything.
Alright, so to wrap up, is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
I help anyone that wants to go on a trip rather it’s solo, a baecation, girls trips, family reunions, or just for fun. I do all of the work for you and offer payment plans for you to take the trip you’ve always dreamed of. It’s so much in the world to see and I won’t stop.
