Meet Nadine McLean of Divas Travel & Cruise 4 Fun in Stockbridge

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nadine McLean.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My passion for travel started about 25 years ago as a solo traveler until I met my husband Kevin and we started taking trips together. It was always a dream for me to explore different regions of the world growing up and I told myself, one day I will live out my dream and make it also a reality for others. I have a close niche of friends that travels and over the years, they have always entrusted in me to plan their trips from flights, hotels, tours and even for restaurant choices.

We officially started offering service to the public as of February 2019, so we are a little over a year in business and to date, it has been a good year thus far. It all started after planning a birthday trip to Dubai with a group of friends from start to finish. Upon our return, one of my friends Lincoln Salmon who was the birthday guy said to me “Nadine, you have been doing this successfully every time we travel so why not do this full-time” there and then I realize I could easily turn my hobby into a business I love.

Our company offers group tours and cruises specifically to women hence the name “Divas Travel & Cruise 4 Fun” although we do from time to time offer trips that are curated to include males.

Has it been a smooth road?
Entering a competitive and over saturated industry was a calculated risk but that did not deter me from aspiring for what I strongly believed in. I started the travel business on a part-time basis working from home with little or no customers other than my friends and families. During that time I had a full-time job as a Financial Analyst with The Coca-Cola Company HQ in Atlanta. When I learned that my job would be transitioned to India, that’s when I made the decision to put my everything into this business.

Since then, we relaunched our business and moved into a commercial space for greater access to the public. The daily challenges has opened up doors for us to improve our appearance and services to our customers and given us the opportunity to get better at what we do. In every business venture there will always be bumps in the road until it’s smooth sailing and we are up for the challenge.

We’d love to hear more about your business.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
South Atlanta is the place to be and indeed a good city for any business. The good thing about a travel business is where it’s situated you will always find people ready to travel, explore and repeat. I recommend starting a business here because I did it, so can you. Providing adequate resources for new business owners will help to improve the life of some businesses.
