It was sort of an accident, but a very happy one.
My Tourism Currents social media training business has always been a two-person operation since our launch; just me and my co-founder Becky McCray.
We’ve been so busy ourselves developing content, marketing and doing training/speaking that we had not seriously considered bringing anyone else onto our team, at least, not yet.
That changed about two weeks ago, in the middle of a Google Hangout video business call with Leslie McLellan, a marketing expert based in Lake Arrowhead, California who was one of our BlogWorld tourism track speakers in 2011.
We only planned to get together to bounce some ideas around, but by the end of the call she’d agreed to join Tourism Currents AND jump on a plane to attend the SOBCon business conference with us, in Chicago.
Suddenly, we have another energetic, smart person, in a different region of the US, as part of the team.
I cannot tell you how excited I am by the possibilities now in front of us! Welcome, Leslie – we are so happy to have you onboard.
