THE STORY:My first memorable international travel experience was a 7-Day Cruise to the Caribbean at the age of 21. I immediately became addicted to the cultural differences. A few years later, I was fortunate to travel with my father back to Lulea, Sweden as an adult. The vacation reshaped my outlook on life, decision-making, and perspective of how I wanted to live my life. I never looked at travel the same again.
Fast forward, after countless vacations to the Caribbean, I was introduced to the travel business through multi-level marketing. The idea of making money in an industry that I naturally had a passion for made sense. Multi-level marketing gave me the opportunity to travel more for less, learn about the industry, build lifelong relationships and partnerships, and learn the power of leveraging in business. Five years later, I own a host travel agency; Dream Travels by Patina. Dream Travels by Patina is a group of home-based agents who have a passion for travel and who enjoy helping others create life experiences.
It started as a hobby, and it became my passion, and eventually a lucrative business. Today, I dream of traveling to Cologne and Koblenz, Germany along the Rhine River on a luxury river cruise and taking in Elba a small Italian island in the Tyrrhenian Sea’s Tuscan Archipelago National Park. Why not love the life that you live? Lifestyle is a choice.

RULES/PRINCIPLES:Fairness is the most important thing in life to me. It’s not always easy, but I feel that when we learn to give, naturally the fairness principle works to the advantage of everyone. I believe that if you don’t give, then you cannot expect to receive in fairness.
GLOBAL FOCUS:If I had the power to change one thing about the world, I would get rid of the selfish mindset that has consumed our world. Once people realize the power of “WE” and not “ME,” we would accomplish more as a civilization. I believe that we would experience healing in our bodies and souls, breakthroughs in our personal and professional lives, and experience a complete wholeness in our day-to-day living. We would walk closer to our divine purpose.
