Welcome Friends of the Ultimate Blog Party!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2008

Welcome Everyone to the Mel's World Travel Biz Blog! I am so glad that you stopped by to visit and hang out for a bit. My name is Melissa Mashburn and I tend to hang out most of the time over in Mel's World with Melissa Mashburn, which is my personal ministry blog.

It is my goal to stop and visit with you a bit and tell you all about the great things that I have been blessed to be a part of when I started my own Home Based Business. This blog, Mels World Travel Biz, is a place for me to share my hopes, dreams, and help each and every one of you realize your dreams by working at home too!

This week I will be giving away TWO prizes here on this site for the Ultimate Blog Party week...

Prize Package #1 -
- a One on One Consultation on starting your own Home Based Travel Business
* Learn how to travel more & spend less!
* Learn how to write off your vacations ethically and morally!
* Learn how to be your own boss!
- a Fun & Travel Vacation Guide Magazine
- a Success from Home Magazine (all about starting your own Home Based Business)
- and DVD explaining the entire travel business plan
- package valued at "The sky is the limit"

Prize Package #2 -
- $15 Starbuck's Card
- Fun/Travel Vacation Guide Magazine
- Success from Home Magazine

I can't wait to get a chance to get to know each and every one of you!

Hey, if you get a minute stop and watch the video (it is only 4 minutes, I promise) in the post before this (The Right Place at the Right Time). I'd love to hear what you think!

Travel, being my own boss, and computers -- three of my favourite things and daydreams all rolled into one!! I could tell from your opening paragraph that I'd like it around here!

Happy Party Week, Mel! I love travel, too - love writing about it - and love talking about with the guests who stay at our B&B. We are giving away a free two-night stay at our Bed and Breakfast in Southern Italy.

Thanks for stopping by! Your comments on by "14 things about me" page had me laughing! I like what you say to your kids "Do the RIGHT thing even if it is the HARD thing." Love it! Hope you don't mind if I start using it.

p.s. weird? freakishly organized - down to the sandwich.

Hi Mel- Gotta love travel-except security lines- :) Michelle

it's me, Val said...

Oooo, I would love either prize!!! Mel, I may need you to help me plan our 10th anniversary vaca. I'm in dire need of help . . . at least making the decision on WHERE to go. We've narrowed it down to 2 places . . . unless you have another great suggestion ;)

Debz said...

I love to travel and would love to have my own travel business! But isn't it hard to be successful at it? Most people I know do all their own booking over the internet. It would be great to be able to do though...make money doing something I really love!

Hey There! Nice to meet you! Thanks for your comment...everyone else that commented I sent them a direct email or went to their blog to visit. Your profile is locked, so I will try to get in touch with you through here.

You know what the GREAT thing about this is that it is completely internet based (just like Expedia, Orbitz, Travelocity, etc.) You work at your own pace, and you decide how much, how often, and how successful you are.

What's even more awesome about that is that you are never is a passion of mine to partner with you (and my team) to make sure they reach whatever goals they want. It's completely different for each person.

Did you get a chance to watch the Right Place/Right Time Video? You can click here... or read the post before this one to watch it.

If you have some time email me at mashburntravel [at] bellsouth [dot] net and I can get more specific with you and answer any questions you might have.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
Melissa ;)
