Probably one of my favorite hotel room views ever! If you’re headed to NYC let me know and I’ll get you booked. Even if you want to stay in Manhattan - I would recommend spending a night or two here. It’s such a special hotel and there’s nothing quite like the city view from Brooklyn!
Realizing that we’re now halfway done with January and time is moving so damn fast. So, here’s a few thank-you’s to the powerhouse ladies who came together to bring a vision to reality: @shannon1014 for all the little things that add up to big ones 🛠 , @leilabrewster for capturing the moments 📸, @florabrookny for breathing life into our spaces 💐, and @lovelauraevents for pulling it all together like a boss and making it all look effortless 👑. You’re all magic ✨
Say 🧀. Flashback to #sfcore19. What a week! The annual event builds knowledge, relationships and excitement for the new year! #bts

#tbt to the time we solved the world’s problems in the @21club private wine cellar.
Here is a quick glimpse into what our CORE Retreat looked like. I could not be more grateful for the opportunity to be surrounded by such an inspiring and enthusiastic group of likeminded people.
The CORE Retreat is a great way to get centered, motivated and organized for 2019. I am truly looking forward to implementing the many tools and ideas I learned. Stay tuned for more about who I am as an entrepreneur and what our goal is as brand.
Thank you @thesmartflyer for hosting such a productive few days and being such an outstanding partner.

It’s been almost five years since I joined @thesmartflyer and started this wild ride. I love what I do everyday for many reasons - the clients I get to connect with, the amazing adventures I get to plan and the challenging nature of working in an industry that is constantly changing and evolving — BUT one of the most unexpected joys of this adventure has been the people I get to work with every day. SmartFlyer is made up of the best in the biz, not only professionally, but personally. I loved every minute of our time together last week at #sfcore19 - until next time! 🎥 by @thesmartflyer
Some of you may wonder what it means that my one-woman business, @swoon_travel, is also an independent affiliate of @thesmartflyer. While I run my business solo, and work 24/7 to make sure my clients have the best travel experiences possible, I also get the distinct pleasure of being affiliated with over 100 like-minded colleagues all working collaboratively towards the same goal. What does this mean for my clients? They get the best of me, but they also get the network and expertise of all 112 of us. These people are some of the best in the biz; travel-savvy, hungry, creative, and passionate. If I haven’t been to a destination (and let’s face it, one person physically can’t travel to every destination in one lifetime), chances are one of these folks have. That translates to better, more creative experiences for my clients, a more successful business for me, and max support all the way around. Love being a small part of the SmartFlyer family! #sfcore19 📷: @leilabrewster

It’s been a happy and inspiring week hosting @thesmartflyer team from all over the country. But, you guys, literally nothing would happen without these two 👯♀️, they’re as good as they come. And, I’m just the lucky one that gets to hang with them every day. #sfcore19 📸: @leilabrewster

Thank you @1hotels Brooklyn Bridge for the most perfect stay! All of the design is so thoughtful, sustainable, and chic - making for an extremely comfortable stay! The skyline views from everywhere in this hotel are just stunning and the Statue of Liberty is off in the distance! If you’re looking for a special stay - Brooklyn is closer than you think and offers so much charm!
The perfect first trip of 2019 ✈️ Thank you @thesmartflyer for consistently inspiring and supporting me as I work to create unforgettable moments for my clients. Oh, and for introducing me to some of my favorite people on the planet! 😉
Incredible morning at @thesmartflyer conference in Brooklyn! I gave a talk on how to honor relationships. In the travel advisory business, building relationships is 🔑! #sfcore19

In one of yesterday’s #SFCORE19 panels, the topic of enjoying the moment versus photographing it came up. My ‘best practice’ is that I try to take all of my pictures in 2 groupings in the day, once in the morning (usually after breakfast so we have more patience 😬) & once in the evening (right before dinner). I love taking photos and then love putting my camera away. I’m definitely not perfect at it though. I struggle because some scenes just BEG to be photographed but I know that the best record of a moment is in my mind. How do you balance taking photographs for the memories versus living the moment in real time while you travel? #CozyTraveler

Day 2. Perfect way to start Smartflyer’s annual retreat learning about work/life balance with CEO Michael Karsch of Juice Press. “Stressing about failure is praying for what you don’t want.” Dr. Dianne Dillon from Canyon Ranch reminds us about the simple power of breathing. Thank you Smartflyer for bringing us all together for an incredible two days of learning!
