How to Have More Fun, Create An "Experience Portfolio", and Create More Freedom
Justin Ehrecke is the co-founder of Wave World Travel, a company he started with his sister to solve the problem of travel-planning for busy professionals.
Justin was first introduced to sales during college and used his summer book business to create the income and freedom to travel to 50 countries by age 25.
His first trip internationally was on a sales incentive trip to Costa Rica at age 20.
He soon caught the travel bug while studying abroad in Cyprus on a program that led him throughout Europe.
And while we aren’t traveling much right now, you CAN start thinking now about how to create an Experience Portfolio while baking more fun into your life.
Justin lives for adventurous travel and recently saw all 7 continents in 1 year while managing his insurance business.
He is passionate about travel consulting to inspire and lead others on life-changing trips, and challenges friends and family to LIVE more through fun challenges like the “3 P.M. Cartwheel” or the Calendar Club.
