WISER TRAVEL AGENTS BUSINESS FORMS
MEET THE WTA FORMS CREATOR
Wiser Travel Agents Business Forms – About. Learn about the WTA Forms Creator (Wiser Travel Agents Business Forms and Documents), Celeste Cooley. She’s a Chicago native whose lived in Southern California most of her adult life. This luxury travel advisor retired in 2021. Celeste proudly served in the U.S. Navy Veteran (Petty Officer 3rd Class) as a Hospital Corpsmen during the Vietnam Era. For three years, she assisted with the care and recovery of injured troops returning from Vietnam. It was a humbling experience.
During that time, her strong work ethic, integrity, sense of humor, and leadership qualities impressed her Commanding Officer. He elected to send Celeste to Officer’s Candidate School in Annapolis, Maryland. However, having little interest in a Naval career, she declined the opportunity to become an Officer. Instead, she aimed her sights on working in the entertainment industry as a writer and producer. A few years later, Celeste would finally realize and accomplish that goal.
Detail oriented with creative abilities are what helped Celeste develop and design documents easily. Inherently artistic, the design process is in her blood and fuels her imagination from concept to completion. This skill started when she worked at various corporate industries. When she noticed that forms were needed but not available, she had to create those documents out of necessity. This go-getter has developed and written many training manuals as well.
It seems becoming a travel agent was a natural career transition for this avid history buff. After attending travel school in 1996, she built a successful luxury agency with her then husband. Her joy and knack for planning very upscale and intricate family vacations, intimate romantic journeys, and historical tours was a specialty. Also arranging short exotic getaways, small group travel, and coed golf trips developed her luxury niche. Celeste was such a dedicated travel professional who made sure her client’s “travel dreams” became reality every time.
Celeste’s Mission Statement is: Let us help you experience the joy of travel.
While her company’s motto is: “We treat all our clients like Celebrities.”
Furthermore, this agent dedicated much of her time just pampering all of her clients like VIPs. She wanted them to enjoy the planning process, relish their unique travel experiences, and return with many special memories. A strong believer in honesty and transparency when consulting and planning trips. Celeste advocated for and advised her clients with all the information and assistance they needed for successful and extraordinary journeys.
Ms. Cooley’s passion for travel began as a child. Fueled by a love of history, foods, and cultures these are the seeds of her passion for travel. We can’t discount her enjoyment of writing that includes travel articles and a relaunch of her travel blog. Celeste enthusiastically shares her travel experiences through writing, photographs, and videos with her former clients, family, and friends on social media.
Other leisurely pleasures are playing golf, practicing yoga, walking, reading everything in sight, learning languages, and creative writing. However, spending personal time with immediate family: her adult daughter, her younger sister, nephew, and her eight-year old male Chihuahua mix; plus, extended family and close friends are all at the top of her enjoyment scale. Life is great!
THE BUSINESS DOCUMENTS
Actually the notion for this project came about after Celeste shared some business forms with a few colleagues. Then other agents began requesting those forms as well. Consequently, fulfilling these requests would be a huge undertaking and a timely task. Since the forms included her agency branding they would need a generic updating. These forms had to be modifiable and easy for travel agents to add their own branding and modify the forms.
At the same time, this creator began thinking about a quicker means of delivering all those forms to travel agents instead of “one by one” via email. Obviously, the forms also needed packaging in some way. They would have to be digital and downloadable for immediate and easy access. So, in developing this business Wiser Travel Agents Business Forms was created to make it happen.
Even though it was an arduous task to update about fifty of these travel agent business forms, she did beginning the process in early 2017. The entire process of revising, editing, and reformatting these documents took four months to complete. Shortly after completing those updates, Celeste stopped for a planned FAM Trip to Ethiopia. That trip put this project on hold for two weeks. Upon returning, the work to build this website took two more months to complete. Nevertheless, after overcoming all sorts of delays and technical challenges with setting up the website, the work was finally completed and the site published. Thus, this WTA Forms Creator met all goals.
Initially, when producing these travel agency business forms eons ago out of necessity it was for Celeste’s personal office use. In the beginning, the thought about sharing these documents or even selling the forms on a small or large-scale never entered her mind. These documents were simply created to run her travel business more efficiently.
After consideration to provide these forms to travel agents, the goal for this Wiser Travel Agents Business Forms Creator was to revise and complete just a few of the more important forms. No amount of planning could project the scope of this project. Nevertheless, once the revisions were under way it became clear that every document used fulfilled a particular task and did so chronologically. Thus, knowing it was imperative for her to include, add, and revise more forms than Celeste originally planned to offer her colleagues.
Although she had shared a few forms in the past, it was only after commencing this project that she realized her forms could possibly become the standard business documents used in the travel industry by agents worldwide. Celeste now envisions other ways she can develop this travel agency documents business by adding other products and services in the near future. Currently, she hopes the documents offered here can one day help fulfill the business needs of travel agents worldwide.
WTA FORMS CREATOR – IN CLOSING
Finally, it’s been a pleasure to create and update these professional Travel Agents Business Forms and Documents for you. I’ve enjoyed preparing my treasured business forms for agents as a whole. Our industry so desperately needed standardized agency business forms. Even though it was a laborious time-consuming task I prevailed. On the other hand, I completed this project without losing my mind. It was so important to fulfill my goal and deliver what I promised. In the process, another idea was born to deliver a service related to the forms.
So, I’m thrilled to offer travel agents and other business owners a Custom Designed Forms service too. Let me create any type of form anyone would need, have in mind or suggest. Subsequently, just call me a forms wizard since I’ve been creating them for a very long time.
My new mantra, “Retirement is not an option,” and my personal motto, “Always have something to look forward to” and “keep moving.”
Even though I have retired from the travel industry as an advisor, life goes on. In fact, I will keep working on something interesting everyday for my personal enjoyment and enlightenment. Maintaining that something to do mentality is about doing all the things I enjoy daily which keeps me healthy, mentally alert, physically active, and always informed; plus, exceptionally happy.
Celeste looks forward to hearing from and responding to travel agents who have purchased her forms or have questions. Also from those who would like any tailor-made documents through her custom design services, she’s ready to help you.
