As a Christian father with three daughters, I’ve always worked to set a good example for my children by doing the right thing. After finishing college, I went to work consulting for a large timeshare company.
In the beginning, it was wonderful. I worked hard, made a wonderful living for my family, and shared in the happiness and excitement of many new timeshare owners I proudly served.
But things were not what they seemed. As my experience and understanding of the timeshare business grew, I learned a terrible truth. The company’s upper management and resort owners were training employees to lie and misrepresent their timeshare products, cheating unsuspecting clients.
Making great money to provide for my family was nice, but my conscience would not allow me to continue working under this “management style” so I did the right thing, I resigned my position and left the company.
Later on I noticed there were more and more legal complaints as well as bad press for timeshare resorts. Soon to follow were “re-sell” companies forming to “help” owners out of rising maintenance fees, programs they can’t use, etc. These re-sell companies were taking advantage of timeshare owners. The companies saw an opening to make a buck. They call timeshare owners and feed them lies. They tell hopeful owners that they can sell their timeshare for a profit or that they have a “buyer” for them ready to go and all they have to do is pay a certain sum of money up front, then the company is never heard from again.
It’s quick and it is very easy.
Now I love what I do. I love the people I serve, but most importantly, when my daughters ask me what I did today, I can look into their eyes and say, “Honey, I helped someone today.”
