Back in my NYC advertising days, I was asked if I could do anything, what would I do? I responded with, “Well, if I could find a way to travel and get paid, that would be my ideal scenario.” And that’s when the lightbulb went off. After doing my research on the yachting industry, I knew my NYC hospitality experience would help me out tremendously. I really enjoyed interacting with people and ensuring they had a great experience, so three months later, I was on a flight to Fort Lauderdale!
How do you remain fresh during a busy charter season – physically and mentally during these busy times?
Well, to me, doing charters is a workout in itself. On charters, I typically end up with over 20,000 steps a day. On days off, I like to walk/explore wherever I am and I stay away from the heavy party scene. The way to get through a charter season mentally is to not stress out. I prioritize my time and just remember that I am helping to create an unforgettable vacation and I have fun doing it. There is also a light at the end of the tunnel. The charter will end and I will have some extra cash in my pocket.
