Women in Business: Cyndi Isaak
Making their own way

  Cyndi Isaak & Mattie McAdoo
Name: Cyndi Isaak

Business Name: Cyndi's Cruise and Travel

How long have you been in business?

We have been in business for 3 years now, but I had 12 years prior experience with Southeast Executravel.

What is your business?

Cyndi's Cruise and Travel is a full service travel agency offering all aspects of travel that include groups, vacation packages, cruises, and corporate business travel. We strive to offer the lowest fares for people while not compromising on excellent customer service.

Why did you go into business?

I went into business for myself after Southeast Executravel closed. We had many customers that I wanted to be able to continue helping. This was an opportunity to open my own agency and I was able to do this within my home so that I could still be with my children and keep costs low. Mattie McAdoo is our full time agent, and we have 5 agents that work from their homes, with some of them located in the lower 48. It is a great career that offers challenges and rewards when you hear from that happy customer that just had a fabulous vacation!
