Welcome to our new home online.🤍 I wanted to start my first blog by introducing myself, our company, our goals, and the big ‘why’ of this entire rebrand. My name is Macy Moss, I am the Founder and Lead Travel Agent at Macy’s Travels LLC. Typing that out feels so surreal and knowing some of you will read this is even more of a pinch-me moment. Macy’s Travels started in 2018 after I had quit my full time job working as a receptionist for our family’s small business in Arkansas. I have always had a passion for creativity, entrepreneurship, marketing, and wanting something of my own. I have grown up traveling (even when we really didn’t have the money, my parents made it happen and it’s something I have never taken for granted.) My siblings and I have more memories of family trips than probably anything else in our childhood and they’re the best memories to have. All of that being said, both of my parents are also anal retentive and planners in their own aspects.
My dad was the OCD type of having everything in order, organized and ready to go, my mom was the one who needed everything to be planned, itinerarized (is that a word?) so between the two of them, we never missed a beat on vacations, destinations, experiences, and mindful souvenirs. Clearly, this runs in the family so I realized I had a natural talent and love for planning trips with a specific budget, interest, or aesthetic in mind; starting with my own honeymoon.
To back it up a bit, I wasn’t fulfilled at my previous job and was determined to find something that I could call my own, work as hard as I wanted, and make a living from it. I never dreamed of being a travel agent, nor did I know those still existed in 2018 haha. They do, and I did become one–spontaneously without knowing what I was doing or getting into! There are so many ups and downs to working in the travel industry, especially in the world we’re in right now but I absolutely love my career, my business, and the fulfillment it gives me. I love meeting new people (even when it’s virtually,) getting to know them on a personal level, and helping them plan a trip and a build memories that will last forever. I believe there are so many beautiful places, resorts, and experiences to be apart of in this world that I can’t imagine a more fun and challenging job to do everyday for you!
So, why the rebrand? Why a website now? Well, there are several reasons Macy’s Travels got a facelift in 2021😉
To wrap up my first blog post– eek! I want to leave you with this: Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for following, supporting, and dreaming with me. Here’s to traveling the world, spending money on memories not things, and an amazing 2022.🥂
First and foremost, my love for travel and vacations came from my parents. I am the youngest of three siblings and I felt my parents always made it a priority for us to have memories in different places... (Read More)
