It’s a group of relatively high income earners — the top two per cent once you’re past the $150,000 per year mark, in fact — who are worried about what YOU’RE doing. So worried, actually, that there’s a new “it” word.
Social media doesn’t help, obviously. And it’s probably what piques my own FOMO. Seeing images of the loveliest cocktails, beautiful handbags, white sandy beaches or adventures in yonder lands is enough to make just about anyone feel a bit anxious about what’s on her own bucket list — or shopping list.
But let’s face it: FOMO can also be a healthy driver, as long as it doesn’t sink us into debt. It’s what makes someone start surfing the net for the next family vacation, for example. And that’s all about memories. I’ll probably die penniless for this attitude, but I really do believe that you can always make money, but you can never get time back to make memories.
So join your @FamilyTravelCA crew for a chit-chat about travel FOMO this Tuesday, March 24 at 8 p.m. (ET). Joined by @NickCowling from Citizen Relations, we’re talking FOMO and how it impacts people’s travel planning and purchases.
Oh, but what would a #FamilyTravelCA chat be without some prizes?
