I recently saw an article by Travel on some of the world’s top luxury ecotourism destinations. I admit when I thought of ecotourism before my mind drew me to places that were overly hot with no access to showers. This article completely opened my eyes to what a true experience an ecotourism vacation could be.
An ecotourism trip to one of these resorts not only provides an incredibly gorgeous setting that allows visitors to connect with these rare surroundings, but they are also able to connect with the people and the heritage of the area. The goal is that by learning more about the area’s true heritage and what makes it unique, it will promote conservation and spark thought about what is needed to preserve these areas for generations to come.
Among these luxury ecotourism destinations were trips to the Mayan ruins, where visitors stayed in traditional Yurks and visited with local natives to learn more about the history and resorts nestled in the Costa Rican mountains that offered incredible amenities like infinity pools but also allowed tourists to spend their days in close quarters with the animals that live in these remote jungles – many who are at fear of extinction.

Josh Verne is a prosperous entrepreneur who has accumulated more than twenty years of experience in the industry. He focuses on initializing, selling and growing of businesses. Currently, he is the Chief Executive Officer of Flocku.com. His success in the industry is due to the one quote by Jonathan Swift that he sticks to “Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.”
He states that there are two different types of people in managerial positions, a leader and a boss. A boss demands utmost respect from his employees and expects them to do exactly what he says. A leader puts the welfare of his employees ahead of his and they set their goals together hence earning their respect. For a person to successful in the entrepreneurial industry and life in general, he should be a leader who practices leadership qualities.
Josh Verne explains that every deal you agree should be a win-win and not a win-lose. The deal should always result in a win for you, your clients, employees and the society in general. No matter how dire a condition looks, there will always be a way of creating a win situation for everyone. When you settle for a win-lose situation, you will always have to find the appropriate solution when faced with an unexpected challenge. The win-win situation always results in skyrocketing your business and reputation.
Josh Verne uses the example of having two ears and one mouth for a specific reason. You should always listen more and speak less. This will increase your knowledge capacity. The less you indulge in speaking, the more the authority and power of your words. People will always listen keenly to what you say.
He encourages all individuals to have balanced lives. Having all the money in the world does not make you happy. A healthy life and a happy family should be a priority for everyone. Balancing is more of making substantial progress in all aspects of life like relationships, personal growth, health and wealth. It is not all about spending an equal amount of time to all the aspects but spending enough time to ensure that you always grow.
