Travel can be a life-changing experience for some, helping them develop a new perspective on life. Travel takes you to different places and different cultures that are typically outside the world you have seen growing up. What starts as a journey to explore countries ultimately becomes a journey of self-exploration. Pablo Valero is one such example, who rediscovered his life through travel and is now living his dreams. He is working with the second-largest cruise line in the world, Royal Caribbean International while managing his own business.
Pablo Valero grew up in Mexico. After graduating with a degree in Commerce & International Business, he landed an office job that was enough to pay his bills. He also pursued certifications on the side to improve his skills. He got certified in Data Science and Data Analysis from IBM and Social Media Marketing from Facebook. Being a lover of adventure sports like surfing, indoor skydiving, and rock climbing, Pablo was always enthusiastic about fitness. He also got a certification as a personal trainer.
As his office job had no opportunity to travel, not even for business purposes, he felt stuck. This stagnant situation led to extreme boredom and he decided to unleash the wanderer in him. He decided to make a bold move and work for Royal Caribbean International, the second-largest cruise line in the world. During the pandemic lockdown, Pablo returned home to figure out some way to create a steady source of income. He started to make use of the connections he had from traveling around the world on the cruise ship and meeting new people. This made him launch his own social media marketing agency, Valero Media.
He has been helping brands increase their follower base and maintain a positive impression on digital platforms with his social media agency. Within a year, Valero Media has generated a seven-figure revenue in just management, giving Pablo much-needed financial security. He is now working on expanding his business and helping more brands make an impact on social media.
This exposure to the world helped him rediscover himself as a person. He developed a more practical approach to life. With this newfound realization, Pablo understood that cruise travel can work wonders for a wanderlust like him. He has been able to make a lot of meaningful connections while traveling and working on a cruise ship. This has directly benefited him in his new role as an agency owner. Pablo is taking advantage of the opportunities that come his way. He has already made multiple investments in different markets around the world and is optimistic about his return on investment.
Travelling has changed Pablo’s life forever. All of this was possible because he dared to step out of his comfort zone to pursue his dreams. He too had his struggles and fears but he overcame them all to follow his passion. Pablo is a motivation to millions around the world who are stuck in jobs they don’t like and are afraid to follow their dreams.
