Things happen, and we have had to bump it to a later date. I hope you will stay tuned, and enjoy it when it is published.]]> May - June Tue, 02 May 2017 00:00:00 -0400 Traveling Smart http://www.jaxfax.com/traveling-smart.html http://www.jaxfax.com/traveling-smart.html None of the headlines about travel will stop your most intrepid clients from traveling internationally. They are willing to brave travel bans, fluctuating exchange rates, and even health and medical warnings. But, what about your clients who are not as willing to throw all caution to the wind? How can you best serve everyone?]]> March - April Thu, 02 Mar 2017 11:40:51 -0500 New Year - Fresh Start http://www.jaxfax.com/new-year-fresh-start.html http://www.jaxfax.com/new-year-fresh-start.html When I get rid of something that I no longer need, especially a lot of things, I feel a sense of clarity. It is as though my mind was subconsciously cluttered with stuff. A new year is a great time for a purge. It’s become an annual tradition here at JAX FAX!]]> January - February Wed, 04 Jan 2017 00:00:00 -0500 Changing Gears http://www.jaxfax.com/changing-gears.html http://www.jaxfax.com/changing-gears.html Here we go again! Another change of seasons, another time change, and another wardrobe swap. So many things in life depend on the season, and it also affects your travel business.]]> November - December Tue, 01 Nov 2016 00:00:00 -0400 Making Memories http://www.jaxfax.com/making-memories.html http://www.jaxfax.com/making-memories.html In case you did not know, JAX FAX sends out emails to our subscriber base, in hopes of bringing you “news you can use” in your business.

Our goal with the distribution of the host guide is to educate and inform agents of all of the options available to them when seeking a host agency, or even when considering a change.]]> July - August Tue, 05 Jul 2016 10:09:52 -0400 Essential Support http://www.jaxfax.com/essential-support.html http://www.jaxfax.com/essential-support.html Sometimes, when our magazine pages are finally off to the printer, I wonder how we managed to get everything done in time; from story assignments, to sourcing photos, to ad sales, to design and layout - not to mention all the behind the scenes administrative stuff. It truly takes a team to get it all done, and there is great comfort in knowing that together we create a product to be proud of, and one that helps so many travel agents meet the needs of their clients.]]> May - June Thu, 05 May 2016 00:17:26 -0400 Rise to the Top http://www.jaxfax.com/rise-to-the-top.html http://www.jaxfax.com/rise-to-the-top.html Not only are travel agents competing for business from online travel agencies, there is also healthy competition between travel agents themselves. As with most businesses, not all are created equally - some have advantages over others, but travelers don’t know what makes your business stand apart unless you tell them. How can you make your agency shine brighter than the rest, and be the best in this business that you can be?]]> March - April Mon, 07 Mar 2016 11:16:49 -0500 Finding the Balance http://www.jaxfax.com/finding-the-balance.html http://www.jaxfax.com/finding-the-balance.html If we asked someone what type of worker you are, would they answer that you spend too much time at the office and could be considered a workaholic? On the other hand, could someone call you a "slacker" and get away with it? Perhaps you are one of the few people who have found a really good balance of personal time and time spent working. I hope so!]]> January - February Sun, 27 Dec 2015 13:32:19 -0500 Time Flies http://www.jaxfax.com/time-flies.html http://www.jaxfax.com/time-flies.html The end of the year draws near, making it a time to reminisce, but also to look ahead. This is the last issue of JAX FAX for 2015, so of course we are reviewing what stories and industry information we reported on during the year, and also, making our editorial plans for 2016, our 44th year of publication.]]> November - December Mon, 02 Nov 2015 11:49:47 -0500
