Or something like that...said Mick Jagger at Altamont back in 1969.
And in 2011, it still rings true. Let's all work together and be cool.
I've had a day full of phone calls and e-mails from various people and organizations associated with timeshare. He says this, she says this, Player #1 doesn't agree with everything Player #2 is doing, Company #1 is stalling on moving ahead because the President of Company #2 won't talk to him and instead sends him to the Vice President. What a day!
The only way we are going to make progress...and progress is defined as more people who own, understand and are happy with their timeshares, less scam artists and other unsavory companies trying to rip off people and a more flattering view of timeshare from the traditional media...is to work together.
More than 6 million Americans own a timeshare. There is no reason why 500,000 of them should not belong to the National Timeshare Owners Association, get involved in their annual HOA meetings, pay attention and support ARDA-ROC, subscribe to TimeSharing Today, know about and use alternate exchange companies when it benefits them, know the difference between a licensed timeshare reseller and a scam artist, take advantage of Bonus and Getaway Weeks, refer friends and family to timeshare and of course, read my blog, follow me on Twitter and/or own at least one copy of both of my books. Hey, it's myu blog, I can be self-serving now and then.
Let's make 2011 the year when we all band together and make a positive difference in timeshare. Who is with me?
