The unstable airline industry is in turmoil. Mark Hatano, a 12-year veteran of the industry, has found a silver lining in his home based travel business.

Since the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the airline industry has not been the same. Bankruptcies and the likelihood of imminent consolidation look to shake up the industry even further. Hatano predicts 2007 is going to be a big year of change for the industry.

Says Hatano, "There is a lot of talk about who is going to be merging with who." Being an insider, he hears from many experts that consolidation is not a matter of "if" but "when." Like many other of his fellow airline employees, he realizes it is time to leave the airlines.

Hatano finds it ironic that his love of travel was how he stumbled upon his way out of the airline industry. A couple of years ago, he was looking for discounts to supplement his already significant airline employee travel discounts.

Hatano found what he was looking for when he discovered the Coastal Vacations Lifetime Travel Membership. It allowed him to save up to 75% on hotels, condos, and cruises.

He was surprised to find out he could earn between $1,000 and $6,500 for referring the membership to others. However, he was leery of running a home based travel business and definitely not interested in selling.

When his friend told him that he didn't have to do any selling, he decided to investigate it further. He learned that they use a professional call center with a full time staff that explains the membership, closes the sale, and sends members their commission checks. Since opening in February 2005, the Coastal call center has paid out over $1.7 million.

In a recent interview, Hatano said, "Many people have the entrepreneurial spirit but do nothing about it or are afraid to act. They are looking for a home based business idea but don't know what to do or how to do it. I sympathize with those who want to leave their job and start their own business, but are apprehensive about doing it. I felt the same way when I started."

Today, Hatano shares the Coastal Vacations business opportunity with all who are interested. With three kids of his own, he understands the tremendous advantages of being your own boss, and a stay at home mom or dad.

Hatano has been a director with the Coastal Vacations Home Business since 2005. "People want a business that is solid, fun, and profitable," he explains. "Coastal Vacations has been around for over 25 years and been a home based business for 12 years." He adds emphatically," The Coastal Vacations Business Opportunity uses only licensed and bonded vendors. It is easy to see why it is now a Top 10 home based business."

The Coastal Call Center is open to speaking to the public about how their unique business model works and is doing a no-obligation, free presentation to all who are curious.

Hatano still shakes his head at the turn of events. What started out as a search for a cheaper way to travel turned out to be his ticket out of the tumultuous airline industry. He says, "The Coastal Vacation business opportunity has been what we have been praying for."
