You’re smart, successful and strong-willed.
You’ve done it all the 'right way.' Checked all the boxes.
You’re the type who’s always thinking, always doing and always moving on up.
So honestly, it’s not a shock that today you’ve ‘got it all’ – the great benefits. The generous salary. The gorgeous apartment.
You know your skills and you’re capitalizing on them, and as a result, you’ve scaled the corporate ladder in your stilettos (and you’ve looked good doing it, obviously).
But sometimes you wonder, “What’s it all for?”
Now that you’re at the top, it feels like you’ve hit a plateau. You’re coasting, not challenged.
Every day rolls on like this:
Sign the check. Go to the meeting. Grab the Starbucks caramel macchiato with sugar free syrup. Assign the tasks to the team. Rinse. Repeat. YAWN.
You're a top performer (especially when it's something you're excited about). But it’s hard NOT to think, “Is this it?” or “Wow, I really can’t do this until I retire.” You love your life, your family and your job (most days) but what you hate is the ROUTINE.
The corner office you used to yearn for now feels like a literal ball and chain.
And the only time you get a little reprieve? A moment to yourself, to breathe? To explore? To try new things? To let your hair down?
Is when you go on vacation.
That’s when you feel the most alive. When you feel most like YOU.
On vacation, there’s no one to impress (no one who knows you anyway). You get to meet exciting new people, soak up the books you’ve always wanted to read, try a delicious new dish you’ve never even heard of before (and probably can’t pronounce).
You get to explore. You get to admire. You get to EXPERIENCE.
So for now? You’ve decided to just work harder and wait to travel until you retire. Or the kids are grown. Or your husband finally gets more freedom in his schedule.
But you know something is missing. And you know that honestly, something needs to change.
You’re tired of working your butt off to save up for just a few trips a year.
You’re tired of only ‘feeling like yourself’ for 7-10 days max – like while you're strolling cobblestone streets in Montmartre, or feeling the strong Caribbean sun on your skin.
And you’re really tired of the fact that you don’t know what to do about it.
You don’t have to lead a boring, uneventful, mediocre life.
And you don’t have to give up everything you know and love to travel.
There’s a better way to see the world.
A 12-week career training & success program for travel-obsessed women like yourself who are ready to have an unique career that pays you to travel the world, while doing work you love, so you can live a global lifestyle without giving up all the good you’ve got going on at home.
It’s comprehensive career coaching that’ll walk you through the core steps you need to take to:
- Figure out your unique skill set and strengths
- Explore travel career options (Destination marketing? European trade shows? Social media for a hip hotel? A study abroad company? PR for hospitality?)
- Validate your career idea and make sure it’s the right one for you
- Schedule, prep and show up armed and ready for informational interviews
- Create a killer resume that gets you to the top of the pile
- Nail your dream interview
So you can become a permanent professional jetsetter.
You’ll sashay away with at least one career path idea that requires international travel and is perfect for you based on your skillset. You’ll be ready to go out and interview with confidence. Basically? You’ll be well on your way to getting or settling into your dream travel career.

ABOUT YOUR ‘TRAVEL GUIDE’
Hi, I’m Kimberly Ramsawak, travel career strategist, global lifestyle coach and the creator of the Professional Jetsetter Academy.
I know right now you might be thinking:
“But I don’t wanna switch careers. There’s no way I could do MY job and travel.”
“Won’t I have to leave my kids/husband/lover behind all the time?”
“Is this even really possible?”
Trust me, not long ago I felt just like you. I thought I had to compartmentalize my love for travel and my love for getting ahead in my career.
I thought ‘a career in travel’ meant making $12/hour as tour guide or signing up to be a flight attendant and ‘going places’ without ever seeing them. (No thanks.)
It wasn’t until I applied for an International Business graduate program – and was denied – that I realized there’s actually a whole range of travel careers out there that would allow me to make a stable salary and see the world.
I’ve always loved travel. I’ve always loved how it made me feel ALIVE, made my heart beat a little faster, and made my life feel just a little more meaningful.
After dabbling in several tourism jobs that didn’t actually require travel, I finally nabbed my dream career as National Director of Tourism Marketing & Development for America’s largest department store (really!). And for over a decade, I got to travel all over the world professionally.
Enjoying my fair share of free skincare products while flying business class.
Attending trade shows.
Dining at 5-star restaurants and staying at top-tier hotels.
...And doing it all on the company’s dime, which was a nice perk. ;)
The job satisfied my love for travel AND my love for nice things. My love for adventure AND my love for stability.
And did I mention I also got to bring along my hubby, sister and other guests? (I know people who bring along their children!)
So yes, there IS a way to see the world and have stability, too. It’s just that not a lot of people talk about it, and even less teach others how to get it.
You don’t have to choose a job that shackles you to your desk and forces you to give up travel. And you don’t have to live the life of a backpacker and stuff all your belongings into a suitcase.
There IS a middle ground. And I know if you’re anything like me, you like your life. You like nice things. And you like having a HOME base.
...You just don’t want to be there ALL the time.
That’s where being a Professional Jetsetter comes in.
This program isn’t about asking you to make a radical career change overnight.
It’s about taking the first steps necessary for finding a career that works for you, what you’re good at and what you ultimately want from life. In fact, it’ll take us TWELVE FULL WEEKS of working together before I’ll nudge you to get out there and start interviewing for your travel dream job. So don't feel overwhelmed.
For the first half of the program, we’ll work on finding a career that’s SO perfectly suited for YOU that both you (and the company) CAN’T say no. And then, we’ll work on the essential skills you need to get mentally and emotionally prepared to head into your interviews with confidence.
So don’t worry if you’re feeling a bit like WHOA, this is huge.
Because we’re going to break it down, make it simple and I’m going to hold your hand every step of the way as you transition from dreaming to doing. (Or from stagnant to skyrocketing!)
So, if you’re serious about a career change and you’re ready to make that good vacation-feeling last all year long, I seriously encourage you to come join us.
I’ll save you a seat in the cabana!

So, Are You Ready To Get Paid To Travel?
The Professional Jetsetter Academy is available by application only. Use the link above to schedule your complimentary Professional Jetsetter Breakthrough Session to find out if it’s the perfect next step for you.
Can anyone do this?
Yes! Most people who invest in the Professional Jetsetter Academy have careers that involve little to no travel. The Academy is designed to teach even total beginners everything you need to get started as a travel professional and apply the skills you do have to take your career in an exciting, new direction. No prior experience necessary, you don’t have to know anyone in the industry, and you don’t have to be from any certain industry or expertise.
You don’t even need an idea. I’ve put together a process and a set of exercises dedicated to the discovery, development and implementation of a travel career path that’s best suited for you - regardless of what level you're currently at in your career. I got you covered.
How much time will this take? I’m busy with work, family, etc.
Don't worry, Passport To Travel Career is a self-paced course and comes with lifetime access, so you can take a break from the material if you're out of town, on vacation, or just swamped for a few days. I get it! Interruptions happen, and your Passport To Travel Career course will always be available whenever you're ready. You’ll have the freedom and flexibility to work through the program at your own pace 24/7. (And BTW, it’ll take just about 3-5 hours per week to go through the course material. The more time you put in, the faster you’ll see results.)
What if I decide this isn’t for me? Do you offer refunds?
I’m fully committed to helping you change your career and your life. However, I do not offer refunds because I know that if you take action and do the Professional Jetsetter Academy work, you’ll get results. Let’s keep it real. If you pay for a gym membership would you ask for a refund if you don’t lose those 10 pounds? Of course not! And it’s the same here - the only thing I can guarantee is that I’ll give you everything you need to succeed. After that, it's your job beautiful.
Can you guarantee me a travel job?
Nope. If I promised you that this program would land you a job, it’d be like a gym promising you’d absolutely lose those last stubborn 10 lbs. just for signing up. But, what I can guarantee is that this program gives you everything you need to succeed. I’m literally sharing ALL the exact steps (and resources) I took to go from an unpaid Intern to the National Director of Tourism Marketing & Development, where I got paid to travel to over 80 cities across 5 continents. If you’re committed, you make no excuses, and you do the work - this program is for you!
What if I can’t make a live call?
All our calls will be recorded and links will be provided within the exclusive Professional Jetsetter Academy membership site (as well as all other weekly content – yup, it’s all in one convenient place!). You can listen to the calls at your convenience if you miss one live, or if you just wanna give it a second go.
What if I’m not ready now? Will you be offering Professional Jetsetter Academy again?
I honestly don’t know how often I’ll offer this program, especially LIVE and at this price point. Plus, I only accept a limited number of women into the program per enrollment period. And honestly, if you’re feeling the tug to do this course, that probably means it’s the right time for you.
There’s never a time in life when you’re ever truly “ready” to do anything. You’ll always be busy and always doubt your “readiness.” If you’ve said to yourself, “I’d love to have a job where I get paid to travel,” then this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. The sooner you start learning the strategies I cover in the program, the sooner you can start to travel and do work that you love.
Will I get 1:1 time with you?
Yep! There are weekly calls during the 12 weeks of the Passport to Travel Career modules where you can receive laser coaching from me personally, plus office hours during the initial orientation phase.
And don’t forget: The Professional Jetsetter Academy is truly unique in that you not only have the opportunity to get one of a kind individual attention, you’ll also get extra accountability and sisterhood from the support of other like-minded, travel obsessed women inside our private Facebook group. My goal is that you’ll feel wildly supported every step of the way.
Couldn’t I just Google this?
Nowadays, anyone can Google anything. But when it comes to the content inside Professional Jetsetter Academy, I know for a fact this is something not a lot of people are talking about, and even less people are teaching. And this isn’t just regurgitated information. You’re getting an insider’s look at unique career opportunities from someone who has already been there, lived it and has the connections and know-how to help you get a serious leg up.
How is this program different than other programs?
I don’t know of any other group coaching program that provides such a high-level of coaching and travel career-specific support. During the Academy, I’ll personally guide you, make sure you are on the right track, listen to what you truly want and support you with the exact next steps, rather than settling for another pre-packaged job solution.
But please note, while I know you can walk away from this program with a dream job (or well on your way to one), it’s not so much about picking the perfect job right away or figuring everything out overnight. It’s really about finding the one travel career idea that’s right for you so you can break into the travel industry with ease AND create long-term career success. All you have to do is show up and take consistent, focused action, and I promise you’ll get there.
Why should I choose you as my coach?
Great question! I’m uniquely qualified to teach this stuff because I built my own highly successful travel career – from scratch. I started with zero contacts and zero experience. Today, I have over 18 years of corporate experience in sales and marketing, 15 of which have been in the travel, tourism and hospitality industry. I’ve restructured entire corporate tourism departments and managed human resources, interviewing and hiring over 100 professionals for various tourism and hospitality positions. (And, in case you’re curious, I also hold a Bachelor’s Degree in International Marketing and a Master’s Degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management.)
I like to think of what I provide as a blend of life and career coaching. At the end of the day, what I’m really doing is challenging you to think differently, to behave differently, and to become the professional jetsetter I know you’re meant to be!
Do I get access to the entire Professional Jetsetter Academy program all at once?
No. The curriculum is carefully designed so that you complete each weekly Module and the corresponding action plans, in order. This is a proven program and it’s vital that you follow the system. If you’re the type of person who always wants to “jump ahead,” and get to the “good stuff” because you “know all this already,” this may not be the right program for you. Everything has been designed to maximize your results and long-term success. And the best part? Once you complete the full Professional Jetsetter Academy program, you get lifetime access and can re-visit the modules in any order you like.
