Can You Travel And Make Money At The Same Time?

Here’s the story of why I chose Global Resorts Network over Coastal Vacations and many others out there.I have had interesting careers throughout my life, but got burned out by the 9 to 5 grind and difficult bosses. I also had run my own businesses before with a modicum of success. I am good at what I do, and never had trouble selling my product in the marketplace. Then along came the internet and online marketing and I was up against a whole new set of industry standards.A couple of years ago I decided I wanted out of the rat race and looked for something I could work at from home. Seeing as I am looking to enjoy myself AND make money, I thought I’d pick something lucrative and FUN. My first thoughts were the travel industry, because it happens to be a 7 billion dollar a year industry, and people are spending more time for their leisure. We are working harder, but we are also playing harder.I jumped in with the first thing that came along which was Coastal Vacations. I found out there was nowhere to turn to get simple questions answered and the package was a nightmare. It arrived in a hundred and one loose pieces with no instructions in a terribly outdated 15 year old vinyl binder. Then I tried booking a vacation and wasn’t prepared to jump through all the hoops I had to… just to stay in a two star hotel for the weekend. I was wondering how people were making money with such an out-dated and confusing package. Most of them weren’t. I felt thankful I had not even TRIED to bring in any sales reps under me.I started looking around again. And there’s a lot more travel companies out there but I suggest you hold on to your money. Most people fall prey to a savvy individual in their upline making good money. They’ve been in it for years and know all the tricks. They are usually the loudest too. They’ll encourage you to take their expensive trainings and buy into their latest business to help you with the one you just bought into. Before long, you have put out thousands of dollars without any sales or hope of making it in the travel business.I was so fed up I started looking into a new travel business. I wanted one that DELIVERED, one that was simple and one that had a good reputation. I didn’t want to handle customer complaints. I wanted something modern and all inclusive. And I found Global Resorts Network, which is an affiliate of a very successful European travel membership. I joined with the top team who does most of the companies marketing. We have telephone meetings every week with a strong support team. The membership gives you a password to get into a worldwide internet booking service that rivals Expedia, Travelocity and Hotels.com and has a 24/7 call center.So, why wait any longer? Our membership and pay plan is the best and you can relax that you are working with the right company at the right time with the right sales team. Call me or check out my website today. Live your dream as I am. Travel when you want and make the money you need.

Shoe Repairs And Several Other Things When I Was 7

Shoe Repairs And Several Other Things When I Was 7
My Dad repaired most of our shoes believe it or not, I can hardly believe it myself now. With 7 pairs of shoes always needing repairs I think he was quite clever to learn how to “Keep us in shoe Leather” to coin a phrase!

He bought several different sizes of cast iron cobbler’s “lasts”. Last, the old English “Laest” meaning footprint. Lasts were holding devices shaped like a human foot. I have no idea where he would have bought the shoe leather. Only that it was a beautiful creamy, shiny colour and the smell was lovely.

But I do remember our shoes turned upside down on and fitted into these lasts, my Dad cutting the leather around the shape of the shoe, and then hammering nails, into the leather shape. Sometimes we’d feel one or 2 of those nails poking through the insides of our shoes, but our dad always fixed it.

Hiking and Swimming Galas
Dad was a very outdoorsy type, unlike my mother, who was probably too busy indoors. She also enjoyed the peace and quiet when he took us off for the day!

Anyway, he often took us hiking in the mountains where we’d have a picnic of sandwiches and flasks of tea. And more often than not we went by steam train.

We loved poking our heads out of the window until our eyes hurt like mad from a blast of soot blowing back from the engine. But sore, bloodshot eyes never dampened our enthusiasm.

Dad was an avid swimmer and water polo player, and he used to take us to swimming galas, as they were called back then. He often took part in these galas. And again we always travelled by steam train.

Rowing Over To Ireland’s Eye
That’s what we did back then, we had to go by rowboat, the only way to get to Ireland’s eye, which is 15 minutes from mainland Howth. From there we could see Malahide, Lambay Island and Howth Head of course. These days you can take a Round Trip Cruise on a small cruise ship!

But we thoroughly enjoyed rowing and once there we couldn’t wait to climb the rocks, and have a swim. We picnicked and watched the friendly seals doing their thing and showing off.

Not to mention all kinds of birdlife including the Puffin.The Martello Tower was also interesting but a bit dangerous to attempt entering. I’m getting lost in the past as I write, and have to drag myself back to the present.

Fun Outings with The camera Club
Dad was also a very keen amateur photographer, and was a member of a camera Club. There were many Sunday photography outings and along with us came other kids of the members of the club.

And we always had great fun while the adults busied themselves taking photos of everything and anything, it seemed to us. Dad was so serious about his photography that he set up a dark room where he developed and printed his photographs.

All black and white at the time. He and his camera club entered many of their favourites in exhibitions throughout Europe. I’m quite proud to say that many cups and medals were won by Dad. They have been shared amongst all his grandchildren which I find quite special.

He liked taking portraits of us kids too, mostly when we were in a state of untidiness, usually during play. Dad always preferred the natural look of messy hair and clothes in the photos of his children.

Pfizer Rallies After Announcing A Huge Price Hike For Its COVID-19 Vaccines
S&P 500 is currently trying to settle above 3730 as traders’ appetite for risk is growing. The U.S. dollar has recently gained strong downside momentum as the BoJ intervened to stop the rally in USD/JPY. Weaker U.S. dollar is bullish for stocks as it increases profits of multinational companies and makes U.S. equities cheaper for foreign investors.

The leading oil services company Schlumberger is up by 9% after beating analyst estimates on both earnings and revenue. Schlumberger’s peers Baker Hughes and Halliburton have also enjoyed strong support today.

Vaccine makers Pfizer and Moderna gained strong upside momentum after Pfizer announced that it will raise the price of its coronavirus vaccine to $110 – $130 per shot.

Biggest losers today include Verizon and Twitter. Verizon is down by 5% despite beating analyst estimates on both earnings and revenue. Subscriber numbers missed estimates, and traders pushed the stock to multi-year lows.

Twitter stock moved towards the $50 level as the U.S. may conduct a security review of Musk’s purchase of the company.

From a big picture point of view, today’s rebound is broad, and most market segments are moving higher. Treasury yields have started to move lower after testing new highs, providing additional support to S&P 500. It looks that some traders are ready to bet that Fed will be less hawkish than previously expected.

S&P 500 Tests Resistance At 3730

S&P 500 has recently managed to get above the 20 EMA and is trying to settle above the resistance at 3730. RSI is in the moderate territory, and there is plenty of room to gain additional upside momentum in case the right catalysts emerge.

If S&P 500 manages to settle above 3730, it will head towards the next resistance level at 3760. A successful test of this level will push S&P 500 towards the next resistance at October highs at 3805. The 50 EMA is located in the nearby, so S&P 500 will likely face strong resistance above the 3800 level.

On the support side, the previous resistance at 3700 will likely serve as the first support level for S&P 500. In case S&P 500 declines below this level, it will move towards the next support level at 3675. A move below 3675 will push S&P 500 towards the support at 3640.
