"It's a problem most agents face on a regular basis: Clients, old or new, want to go on a vacation, but they don't know where..."

"Using her experience as an agent, Hawkey has created a destination-matching service in the form of an easy online quiz agents can present to clients. The quiz comes on a white-labeled website agents can customize, and it includes destination guides. Hawkey no longer sells travel, instead devoting herself full-time to the company."

"It's fun. It's different. It's an experience," she said, adding that the price of the headsets is not prohibitively high, nor are they low quality.
