Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant- Is It Worth The Annual Fee?

 

Is the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant credit card worth the annual fee?  Even now, in a world where things are shut down and people aren’t traveling much?  In a word…YES!  If you travel…anywhere. (In normal circumstances, and our current virus situation won’t last forever, so I still think this card is totally worth it!)   I know $450 sounds like a lot for  a credit card, but this one easily pays for itself. 

First of all, you get $300 a year in Marriott “spending money”.  Which means it’s good for the room, restaurants, spas….anything spent in a Marriott.  And let’s face it…their hotels are pretty much everywhere, so it’s not hard to find one where you want to stay.  I love to use it for my rooms to get essentially free stays.  And the best part is, you don’t have to do anything to use it.  It’s automatic.  As soon as a charge hits from Marriott, they take it off until they reach $300.  So if you’re only staying 1 night in March and It’s $100, you can still use the leftover $200 for you trip in June.  You don’t have to use it all at once.

So that right there takes the annual fee down to a reasonable $150  ($450-$300).  Besides the sign up bonus (click the referral link to see the most up to date sign up bonus that Marriott is offering), you also get a free night every year on your card anniversary up to 50k points!  Now, we’ve more than paid for the card’s hefty annual fee.  But you also get:

Marriott Gold Status 

Global Entry/TSA precheck 

Extra points on your credit card for money spent on groceries, gas, restaurants, and Marriott hotels  

Priority Pass Select to get you into certain lounges in the airport

Along with other benefits that you can read about here and see what they are currently offering as a sign up bonus 

Is it my favorite card??  It’s a close one.  One that I will keep renewing every year….even during this time of the coronavirus/lockdown/less travel, the card is still totally worth it to me and I just renewed it last month.  It’s just so easy to get the value out of it.  So, is it my favorite?  No, but it is close!

Why We HomeSchool- After Years Of Public School

Why We HomeSchool- After Years Of Public School

Reasons We HomeSchool

When most people find out you homeschool, the first question you’ll probably get is some form of “Why???”

Everybody knows the stereotypes of homeschooled kids; that they’re weird or awkward because you think they don’t get socialization (big misconception), or that they aren’t actually learning anything and just stay at home sleeping til noon, watching TV or playing video games. Or…and this was a new one for me…that they’re super religious. Apparently, it used to be that if you homeschooled, it was because you were very religious and wanted more of those teachings for your children than they would get in public school. I hadn’t realized that one until we started researching homeschooling for ourselves.

As we are brand new on our own homeschooling journey, we are getting asked a lot of the “Why” questions ourselves…and I’m sure this is only the beginning. But it’s really hard to tell Aunt Sue or Karen at the grocery store your reasons for homeschooling when you’re caught off guard and only have a few moments to explain yourself in passing. So I decided to write out our reasons for wanting to go down the homeschooling path. Maybe you have similar reasons yourself.

My husband, son, and I have talked about homeschooling for years and never went through with it for many reasons (some of which may have been stereotypes mentioned above too!), but that’s for another post. Then this whole Coronavirus flipped the world upside down and almost everyone was forced into homeschooling! We thought it would be a great way to kind of try it out and see how we all felt. Turns out, my son loved it and made his decision. He didn’t want to go back to school for 5th grade next year and wanted to homeschool.

So besides the fact that we wanted to and because it’s what we feel is best for our family, here’s a breakdown of our other reasons to take him out of public school and start our homeschooling journey.

Tailored Learning

The ability for one on one attention is a huge pro in our eyes. My son is advanced in Math, but could use some extra time in English. Since first grade he has been testing out of his math classes, but not able to make honors classes because of English. This left him bored in Math with the teachers not able to teach him on his level since they have to teach the same thing to everyone.

His 4th grade teacher actually gave us a separate math book and told us to “homeschool” math anyways. This work was never even looked over at school. It’s not the teacher’s fault. The system is hard. Having 20+ kids in a class, trying to make sure each child understands the subject enough to pass their tests, and having to deal with all the kids paying attention, behavior issues, etc. We’re super excited to be able to teach him one on one in a style that works best for his learning, and topics that he is interested in!

More Time As A Family

The school year was always crazy for our family, just like everyone else’s probably. Wake up super early, make lunches, quickly feed breakfast, get everyone dressed and out the door. By the time you come home in the evenings, do homework, have dinner, shower…not to mention any sports or extra curriculars…you have what? 10 minutes together? Plus the fact that my husband works evenings…left hardly any time as a family. We only have our kids living with us for a short amount of time. Call me crazy, but I want to spend that time with my family…not spent rushing, arguing over homework, or rushing out the door. I want the time to raise my son with our values, enjoy the learning process, and growing as a family.

Worries About School Culture

Ok, I’m not quite sure how to label this one, but yes, we have had worries about what you hear happening in schools lately. Guns, shootings, drugs, bullies, bus drivers getting into accidents. Sure, maybe none of this stuff would ever happen. Maybe we’re over-reacting a little. But some of these school shootings that have happened in the news hit a little close to home. We haven’t had any problems with bullies or peer pressure, but we all know it happens.

In this day and age with the internet and cyber bullying and all these stories you hear of kids committing suicide from being bullies…it’s a scary time. Yes, I do think my son would do the right thing and not listen to bullies and stick up for other kids…but why go to school in this situation? And before people say, but how will he ever grow up to be strong and tough in the world…I say….do you need to be bullied to know what to do in that situation? Do you need someone treating you horribly to grow up tough? I’d rather have him put in situations that will instill his self confidence in other ways.

Travel

This one is big for us. It’s no surprise that travel is a large part of our lives. By homeschooling, we aren’t stuck to traveling during school breaks or having to worry about missing too many days. Now we can travel whenever we want and get to enjoy travelling when the prices are cheaper and the crowds are less! Being able to travel and see the things we learn about and experience other foods and cultures is an important part of the education I want to give my son. (This is going to be even more true come the end of November when we start our adventure slow traveling around the US and Canada! if you want to follow along on our journey..where will we stay, how will schooling work, what about money, etc- join our email list for monthly updates!)

What about those misconceptions? Socialization? Won’t he be sheltered?

They’re legitimate questions and ones that most people have if they don’t really know how homeschooling works. As for socialization, first we have to ask ourselves how much socializing our kids our getting in school. I know in my son’s school, they didn’t get much. And from what I hear many others are the same. Lunch is 20 mins and that includes the time for kids to walk the halls, wait in line, get there lunch, eat…they have no time for talking with their friends. Recess is the same. 20 minutes. The rest of the time they are told to be quiet and sit at their desks.

Homeschooling will let us get out in the world, make friends with kids of all ages and interact in society…you know…the real world- just like how you do or how all the kids do when they’re not in school. And the idea that being homeschooled means you’re sheltering your kids? We’re homeschooling so we can show our son the world. Different cultures, backgrounds, religions. Make friends with different ages. Be in society like you or I. Just like what “real” school is supposed to prepare our kids for….except just going out there and doing it.

Regular school means staying in the same four walls with the same kids with similar backgrounds for years on end. I want him to learn about the places by seeing them, feeling them, experiencing them….not just reading about them in a textbook. So who is more sheltered? This is nothing against anyone who goes to regular school. My husband and I went to public school, my son did til 4th grade, so does most of the population. That’s what’s normal and expected and works for many people. But honestly, I’ve never felt the need to be normal and have always just done what I felt is right. Right now, for our family, we feel homeschooling is right.

This is also not to say that I don’t respect teachers. I love teachers and give them so many props. They have a really hard job. It’s not their fault. They have 20 or more kids in a classroom at all different abilities and are given a certain curriculum to teach and try to make sure everyone passes their tests. Along with dealing with behavior issues, trying to get all the kids on the same page, etc. It sounds exhausting. But I only have one child. And I have to ability to teach him one on one and tailor everything just for him and his learning style. These are some of the reasons we are deciding to homeschool- as you can see it’s a bit hard to explain all this to everyone that asks “why?” Maybe we can just point them to this post? lol


How Is The Coronavirus Working For You?

How Is The Coronavirus Working For You?

How is the coronavirus working for you

 

 

In this time of lockdown with everyone “staying safe” at home, there’s a lot of fear, political debate, and information out there to sift through….not to mention kids are home from school, no sports or other extracurricular lessons, parents working (or just staying) home, not being able to see friends/family or go out and do things we normally would,…and if you’re like my family….all this free time, no schedule to be on, and we can’t travel!!!  Let’s face it…there’s a lot of things we can find about right now that we probably aren’t liking.  But that’s not what this post is about.

 

I’m a firm believer that everything is always working out for us, whether we see it now or not.  Now, that’s not to say that I think this horrible virus that’s killing the population is a good thing, no, obviously it’s not.  What I am saying, is that I try to find the positives in every situation.

 

So how is this Coronavirus lockdown benefiting your life?  Have you thought about it at all?  I know for us, we’ve been talking about wanting to try homeschooling out for years but have been nervous to take Jaxson out of school to try it, even though he was down!  We’ve been talking about moving to another state (again), for years as well, but again….school and also my son’s travel soccer team is here that we love.  My husband and I have wanted more time for family and to spend on focusing on our online businesses to hopefully one day be fully location independent.  

 

Guess what?  The mandated lockdown has given us all these opportunities.   You want to try homeschooling but you’re scared to take your kid out of school?  BOOM, now everyone has to homeschool and schools are shutdown worldwide…no school for anyone!!  You don’t want to leave your son’s soccer team?  Guess what?  Soccer and all sports are cancelled and may not start up in the fall!!  You want more time with your family???  Nobody (at least here) goes to work!  Both of your work’s are shutdown!!!  You want more time to spend on your online business ventures??  See the last one….no going to work for you!!  

 

Well, wow.  Literally everything we had been thinking about, wishing for but was hesitant to take action on was literally laid out on a silver platter for us.  All we had to do, was now take the action.  Put in the effort in homeschooling, put in the effort into our online ventures…and see if that’s really what we wanted in life.

 

We’ve come to a lot of big decisions as a family that I’ll post about later on down the line.  Are there any positives that you can think of that has come out of this lockdown for your family?  Things that you wondered about, wanted to try, or wished for that now you find yourself smack dab in the midst of?  Was it how you envisioned or completely different?

Hotel Review- Residence Inn- Charlotte, NC

Hotel Review- Residence Inn- Charlotte, NC

We recently stayed at a Residence Inn (by Marriott) for the first time.  We were evacuating South Carolina due to an incoming hurricane and were trying to decide on a city (far away from water) to go to.  I checked all the hotel brands I have status/credit cards with (because, come on, I’m not going to miss out on an opportunity for points! lol) and came across Marriott’s Residence Inn in Charlotte, North Carolina.  It was only about a 4 hour drive from us and plenty away from the water (and had good reviews, free breakfasts, accepted dogs, and other perks that I’ll tell you about in a minute) that made me think it was the perfect spot for a little hurrication!  (Make sure you read through all the way to the end to see how we ended up getting the stay practically for free…and how you can too!)

 

One thing that sold me on the Residence Inn is that they have FULL kitchens in the rooms!!!  This was going to be huge since we’d be gone for at least a few days (and didn’t know if it would need to be more) and were pretty much just planning to relax and not spend money since it was note really a planned getaway.  So full kitchens, free breakfasts, annnnnd they have an event Mon-Wed each evening where there is an hour of small bites and beer/wine for free as well!  Huge perk of the hotel.

 

The other major part that made us choose this brand over the rest was that there was no pet weight limit.  There is a pet fee, but you can have 2 dogs with no weight restrictions, which is a big deal with our 60+ pound guy.  Turns out, they also had a decent amount of green area to walk the dogs along with pet waste pick up stations (that were actually filled (not empty) with ready to use bags while we were there!)

 

 

Here you can see the bedroom area of the hotel room.  We got a room with a king size bed and a sofa bed.  

If you have a Netflix account, the TV here can access it as well so you can watch all your favorite shows, just like at home, which I thought was pretty cool even though we didn’t use it.  (The TV was mostly turned to hurricane coverage while we were there)

This is the living room area.  You can see they have a desk, couch that turns into a bed (we just used it how it was though) and a comfy chair.  I loved the pop of blue.

The KITCHEN!!!  I loved this aspect!  Look at that full size fridge!  They had a dishwasher you guys!  You can see there was also a microwave, a stove top (no oven–so maybe not full?), toaster, coffeemaker (but we boujie so we brought our french press and coffee with us, haha) the cabinets were stocked with all the plates, silverware, pots and pans that we needed.  They even provided a packet of microwave popcorn for you which I thought was a cute touch.

There’s my doggy, Cody.  The Residence Inn passed his test (which is saying a lot, because he usually doesn’t care for hotels and will sit by the door looking at us to leave most of the time).  I already told you about the no weight restrictions and the fact that there is a pet fee, but…notice the (fake) fireplace here!  There was a controller that turned it on that made it look like a real fire, which was cool even if no heat or real flames happened.

Nice little bathroom amenities.  They have a separate area with the sink/mirror where this was located, then the shower and toilet were in the actual bathroom.  It was nice to be able to have other people getting ready (doing hair/brushing teeth) while someone else was taking a shower.

 

 

Click below for a quick little video of my son taking advantage of the hotel pool!

They have an outdoor pool (3-5 feet deep) that J enjoyed using.  There’s also a volleyball court and basketball hoops near by.  (By the way, my son has just started his own Instagram account because he wants to give travel tips on destinations, hotels, activities, etc from a kid’s perspective.  He would absolutley looovvvee if you wanted to follow him.  No for real, he’ll run around yelling “I’m famous!” when he gets a new follower, hahaha)  He’s @JaxTravelz on IG (travelz with a Z because he’s cool, lol)

Some other highlights of the Residence Inn University Park in Charlotte, NC:

 

– The staff!!  Seriously, I’ve bever been so impressed with the staff at a hotel before.  Each person we came across had a smile on their face and seemed to bend over backward to help you even when we didn’t ask for it.  Anticipating needs before asking seems the be the name of the game.

A few examples:

-My son was kicking his soccer ball around in the basketball area and would sometimes shoot his soccer ball in the hoops.  A lady from the front desk brought him out a basketball so it would work a bit better for him.

– At one of the evening meal events, they had a piece of chicken and a piece of shrimp option.  I grabbed my food while my son was busy playing, when we was hungry we went in to grab him some.  He loves shrimp, so I had told him about it.  When we got inside, there wasn’t any put out.  So I was telling him, it’s okay, you like chicken too- it’s good, have some of that.  The lady working it was off to the side and asked what he was looking for.  When I told her he was just wondering if any shrimp was left, she went in the back and brought some special for him.  Totally unexpected and so very sweet of her!

– One morning at breakfast, it was particularly busy.  I walked in with my husband and the manager came over and said they had just opened up some more seating in other areas.  We went to one of those which was currently empty and as we sat down, he turned on the TV to the hurricane coverage (he knew we were there for that reason).  Again, none of this was asked for and so very sweet.    The staff was excellent all the way around.

We will definitely be searching out Residence Inn properties again!  Okay, on to how we got our stay practically for free!

How We Got Our Stay For practically Free and how you can too!

If you don’t know by now, my husband and I are big into “travel hacking”- using miles and points from credit cards to get cheaper travel.  Well, I have the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant credit card.  This card comes with a pretty hefty annual fee ($450) BUT, comes with soooo many perks that make it truly worth it for us.  Not only do you get complimentary gold status with Marriott just for having the card, but you also get– a free night each year, unlimited access to airport lounges for you and your guests, reimbursement on Global Entry/TSA precheck, bonus miles for signing up- it was 75,000 bonus miles when I signed up- and hitting the minimum spend (which we just pay our bills on it and pay that right off as we would normally pay our usual bills), a bunch of other perks, but the biggest one that matters here is that each year you also get $300 back on any Marriott stay (for hotel rooms, food at the hotels, incidentals, etc).  Our stay cost $370 (including the pet fee) and as soon as it went through on the card, Marriott took $300 of it right off!!  I love the Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant card.  If you want to check it out and get the perks for yourself, you can see their current sign up bonus here.  (If you sign up and get approved through this link, it costs you nothing, but we both get some Marriott points!  So, thank you in advance for using our link and continuing my points obsession, happy dance!!! lol)

Carnival Ecstasy Ship Tour

Carnival Ecstasy Ship Tour

















One of the cool perks I get for being a travel agent, is that you get to go on ship inspections.  A ship inspection is a tour of the public areas of the ship and then they give you lunch so they you can see all of the amenities, try the food, and take pictures so they you have a better idea of what it’s like so you can show your clients….and then they kick you off before the ship leaves port!  Well, earlier this month, I got to tour the Carnival Ecstasy out of Jacksonville, Florida.  

The Ecstasy is one of the older (if not the oldest, still in operation) under the Carnival fleet.  That’s not to say she’s not a beautiful ship.  The Ecstasy is part of the Fantasy class which is a smaller ship class than the rest of their fleet.  I personally enjoy the Fantasy ships because they are easier to get around/learn the lay out, you recognize people throughout your sailing, the areas don’t feel as crowded, etc.  Mostly for me…it’s the layout.  I have a horrible sense of direction and this helps me tremendously! hahaha.


Here’s a quick little photo review of some of the different areas on the ship.









Empty ship pic!!  I couldn’t help myself.  Being on such a large ship where you normally see people enjoying their vacations, it was so surreal to be walking around on it with only the employees.



This is a photo of a typical balcony cabin.  I didn’t take too many detailed room pictures as they are easily accessible on Carnival’s website.  I did take quite a few of the suites though since it was my first time having been in one!







Their waterworks area.  This is a great place for kids….and adults.  Besides the twister slide, they also have 2 side by side racing slides that you can see off in the corner of this picture.  There were also two smaller slides for little kids with sprinklers at the top.





This is the Sapphire room, their showroom.  It’s hard to tell from this picture, but the room is beautiful.  You can tell why they call it the Sapphire room, the curtain glistens blue just like the gem.  I took a video of this area where you can see the beauty of it more….but trust me…this is a showroom done right!  The seating is on this particular ship is great.  Some ships have a lot of pillars in the way making viewing not very easy, but the Ecstasy has plenty of fantastic seats to see the shows comfortably.











This is the Alchemy Bar located right outside of the comedy club.  This is a newer addition to the Ecstasy ship and is my favorite bar on any Carnival ship.  They make upscale, handcrafted cocktails.  You won’t find a “beer” or “glass of wine” here.  Head over to any other bar for that.  My go-to drink here is the Restorative Basil Drop.  They will also create drinks for you that are not on the menu based on flavors that you like.







This was one of my favorite rooms on the ships.  I just loved the Chinese lanterns and decorations.  Looking at it, I thought for sure it was a specialty dining room, but it turns out they use this room for a bar/karaoke area.  To me, it doesn’t really fit the feel of the room, but I’ll give them a pass since I think it’s gorgeous, lol.



Sneak peek of the roulette table in the casino.  The casino is a smoking area and is only open while not at port and in international waters.




Carnival has recently rolled out some new desserts (namely, cakes) on their buffets.  I didn’t get a chance to try them, but they looked really good.  





This was the set menu for our private group.  




This mushroom risotto was delicious! If you see this on the dining room menu, do yourself a favor and order like 5 of them! lol.  Whatever that creamy sauce was around the plate, was the best thing ever!

(I ordered the steak and veggies for my main, but didn’t snap a picture…sorry!)



And of course our meal ended with Carnival’s signature dessert, the Warm Chocolate Melting Cake.  Sooo good.






Bottom line….did I enjoy the Ecstasy?  Yes.  She is showing her age.  And there is visible rust in places.  She is going into drydock for deep cleaning and minor cosmetic touch ups in early October.  I do hope these items are addressed.  I’ve always seen reviews where people talk about the ship “showing it’s age” or having rust and honestly, I never really noticed on any ship I’ve been on.  I thought those people were nit picky.  But, when I got on the Ecstasy…..I noticed.  So while I absolutely love Carnival and there were some beautiful areas on this ship, yummy food, and a ton of fun activities….would I recommend this ship right now?  I’d probably steer people towards one of the other Carnival ships.


What do you think?  Have you been on this ship before? 
My first week as work from home online travel agent

My first week as work from home online travel agent

You guys, let me tell you.  I’ve seen these “at home travel agent” things for a while and often wondered about it.  I mean, it’s no secret that I love travel—doing it, planning it, talking about it, writing about it….and I would love nothing more than to be completely free to travel whenever we wanted to.

I’ve been a flight attendant, a reservations agent with an airline, and a travel blogger….travel agent (and doing it location independent) seemed like the next logical step.  So about a week ago…I went for it!

Have you thought of being an independent travel agent before and wondered how it works and if it’s real and if you could do it??

Well, I decided start writing a series about how it’s going for me (pros AND cons—real talk, nitty gritty, lol) to give you that answer!  I couldn’t find much personal experience when I was searching for it, so I just decided to go for it and document my own journey.  Ready??

Okay, my first week as an independent travel agent!!!

First thing first.  Let me tell you how excited I am!  I mean…besides all the obvious things one could be excited about…I now have access to all these awesome trainings and certifications from all the big companies ALL ABOUT TRAVEL.  I mean, planning and researching travel and trips is my JAM….now I get all this inside info and get actual “certifications” that I can print out saying I specialize in (insert company here).  It’s like going to school and being the person sitting front and center answering all the questions and gobbling up the information because you love it so much.  (Okay, if I scared anyone off with all that school talk…again, you don’t have to get any certifications to be a travel agent….I just am a dork and love it so I choose to! lol)

Okay, let’s start with the “cons” I’ve found out in this business within the first week.

Cons

– Commissions get paid out 30-60 days after your clients COMPLETE travel.  (this is normal in the industry, but still…you do have to wait a bit for your money)

– If I’m being 100% honest, I don’t really love the interface on my website for myself/clients.  It doesn’t have all the options I’m used to for filtering out hotel preferences and the pictures of hotels, etc on the site when you’re searching aren’t the best quality.  But, I’m used to always checking out multiple sites anyways when I’m searching travel, so this is okay for me because I’ll just search on the websites I’ve always enjoyed (hotels.com and booking.com for hotels) and then find the exact hotel I want and book through my own site.

– We don’t make a commission on domestic air travel.  So for flights within the US, we don’t get a commission….but for international flights we do.

Okay, that’s all I’ve got so far for Cons….but just WAIT til you hear the Pros!!!

Pros

– The biggest and obvious pros here are that you get to sell travel for a living….from anywhere.  And you’re your own boss- you set the hours and you put in as much time as you see fit!

– Like I mentioned earlier, I had some fun doing some certifications specializing in certain hotels and cruise lines.  Because I went through and got those certifications, not only did I learn about the company and what they offered, it opened me up to get discounted and/or free travel to check out those companies.  When a travel agent can experience your product, they can sell it better.  Therefore, taking a cruise or checking out the property is a win win.  So long as you as the travel agent know that they are there for work- to take pictures/video, learn about the product so that they can recommend it to the clients that would enjoy it,  and act professionally.

– I signed up for some ship inspections.  Ship inspections are a no cost tour that cruise lines give to travel agents on certain days (usually between sailings after one set of passengers debark their cruise and before a new group sailaway).  They usually last 3-4 hours and include free lunch.  This gives the travel agents a chance to see the ship, ask questions, take pictures, and try the food among other things!  I’ve got two that I’m signed up for right now- so be on the look out for my ship reviews for those!!

– I’ve signed up/got certified for my CLIA card.  CLIA is the Cruise Line International Association but it’s not just cruises, it partners with hotels and ports as well.  This is actually a really great thing to have as not many agents are CLIA certified so it looks better to clients, and it opens the agent up to higher priority for ship inspections, FAM trips, etc.

–  And maybe the best part…. Ya’ll….do you travel a lot?  Or are you the person all your friends go to for help planning their trips??  Get this…….you get commission ON YOUR OWN TRAVEL too!!!!!  What?! So, I’ve already went ahead and booked a couple hotel stays that we need and cursed myself for already buying two cruises before I signed up as an agent, lol.  But 30-60 days after I travel, I’ll be getting a commission check from my own travels…does it get any better than that??

– Another great thing I found out before I started was that your clients aren’t spending more so that you get a commission.  Whenever they book through a regular hotel or airline or expedia, etc…the commission is already in the price.  Someone is always getting it, whether it’s Delta, Priceline, or the travel agent!  So now I can help plan/book my friend’s travel, get paid, annnnnd it’s not costing them anything else!!

– Along those same lines.  I price checked.  I wanted to make sure that what I was selling wasn’t actually higher prices than what was out there on the normal big websites.  Everything I saw was the exact same price or actually a few dollars cheaper!!  My host agency also has a low cost guarantee as well.

– Did ya’ll know there are travel seminars out there?  Like a lot of them!  Different cities around the world, everyone gathering around the learn the newest and greatest thing in travel.  Yeah…I can go to those now!

Okay, I think that about sums it up for my first week!!  I’ll do another update again, probably monthly.

Do you travel a lot and want to save on your own travel?   Do you always book travel or help your friends plan their vacations?  Come check out the business!  I need people to do ship inspection with!!  Lol, really though….they don’t let spouses and children go and I want some friendly faces to check out cruise ships with!!

There are two different options in this business.  You can either just sell travel, or you can sell travel AND be able to sign people up for their own businesses as well!  You can sign up for a free video explaining the business here.
