If you are considering going home-based, these responses might help you make up your mind

The recent National Travel Agent Survey – an independent nationwide survey of almost 700 Canadian travel agents – had a few questions where agents had the opportunity to write in their comments.

Agents were asked the following questions and encouraged to write about how they felt, rather than just a multiple-choice answer.

Some of the most revealing answers about being a home-based agent came from this question: What do you like most about being a home based agent? Why did you become one?

The responses provide great insight into the benefits of being a home-based agent from their own perspective.

If you are considering going home-based, these responses might help you make up your mind.
