The Travel Industry's "Most Respected Business Adviser!"

No Hype or Empty Promises

Simple, Sound, Practical Solutions.



"I first met Dan at a conference where he was the keynote speaker and thought this is exactly the type of person my agency needs. I did not want to completely change everything but needed to refocus our sales efforts and office efficiencies. After several sessions with Dan I had completely switched our website design and online focus. We also reemphasized our agency newsletter and online marketing to be much more effective. We even switched around some of the office equipment contracts and telephone system. In the end Dan was instrumental in reducing our expenses and increasing our sales. He helped me work smarter, not harder to get the clients we really wanted to serve. Dan’s expertise in the travel industry is very deep. I would highly recommend Dan and the Wealthy Travel Agent. "

" I spent over a year looking for a business advisor that would do more than tell me that I am awesome and exclaim “You can do this!” I needed someone with the experience to evaluate my business and tell me, specifically, what I needed to do in order to grow. Luckily, I found Dan Chappelle. Dan is in the unique position of having both been an agency owner and having worked for travel vendors. He has been on both sides of the fence and, because of this, his insight is unique and invaluable. Dan did exactly what I needed an adviser to do. He analyzed my current business and made clear recommendations for improvement. He helped me get proper systems in place, make the most of my current vendor relationships and formulate a solid plan to move forward. He has worked side-by-side with me every step of the way. He has been generous with his insight and his time — often working well beyond our allotted time frame. Dan really cares about his clients and their success. I never feel like “just a client.” It feels more like working with a really knowledgeable friend. With Dan’s help, I now have an efficient organization that is well-primed to welcome new agents. He has helped me create an agency that offers a real benefit to agents who are looking for a new host agency. I know that what we accomplished in a few short months- would have taken me years to get to this place on my own. "

"I called upon Dan for his services as my personal business advisor. Dan has guided me through all aspects of gearing up my business and most importantly helped me focus on the most critical elements when dealing with the luxury client. He is incredibly knowledgeable and has built lasting relationships in the industry which proved to be wonderful resources for me as I set up my niche markets. Most importantly, I felt that Dan genuinely cared about my success and ensuring I upheld a work-life balance. Thank you Dan for all your guidance! I would encourage anyone thinking about hiring a business coach to give Dan a call. I only wish I had done it sooner."

"I approached Dan Chappelle about serving as my sales adviser to help me better understand how to successfully promote and sell customized vacation packages. True to his word and the deliverables he promised, Dan has customized a specific sales plan based on a thorough business analysis that he conducted of Panama Travel Consultants. He leveraged his extensive travel industry experience to identify opportunities for operational enhancements that would increase our sales. He also identified ineffective operational practices and components of the business infrastructure that were hindering our growth. What I like most about working with Dan is that he genuinely cares about your success and he is really a lot of fun to work with. Dan has high expectations and demands for you as a client but what you get in return is somebody who will be completely committed to your success. He doesn’t count minutes and often spends much more than our allotted consultation time. I would highly recommend Dan’s very effective coaching style to anyone who is serious about significantly increasing sales and taking their business to the next level through hard work and commitment to listening to a seasoned industry expert. Feel free to contact me at [email protected] about my very positive coaching experiences with Dan."
