THE MYSTERY OF JURY DUTY

THE MYSTERY OF JURY DUTY

My Sweet Cuz And Her Sense  Of Humor!

Right on time, I received my recurring, 18 month summons to appear for jury duty and yesterday was the day. To avoid the extreme, rush-hour traffic into Phoenix, Dick demanded he take me rather than I even attempt maneuvering public transport to the area.

(He would be a welcomed companion into this trek into the unknown). As I calculate, this would be my last possible summons before I will no longer be age-appropriate and can opt out of future opportunities. YIP!

We allowed two hours for the trip to the big city and were undeterred by the parking lot of cars sitting on I-10 as we journeyed to our exit, then, to the appointed parking lot and furnished bus ride to the courthouse.

 

1903_Apr11_Colliers

We were shocked by the estimated 400 potential jurors already checked into the assembly room upon our early arrival. My heart leaped, thinking, ‘With this crowd, I’ll never be called’, at least that was my hope.

I’ve never witnessed such a gathering of people sitting motionless, without even whispering a word or looking directly into the eye of another.

Zombies all; looking at their electronic devices (duh), reading books or just starring into space. As Dick read his book, I worked two crossword puzzles and whipped out my latest edition of Judicial Watch to ward-off evil.

The twenty-some TV screens played silent public programming until the court’s video announcements and instructions replaced the disregarded tennis match that was streaming. Soon after, the action began as lists of the various jury selections were displayed on the massive screens.

Let me just say, I’ve often rejoiced at being married to an “A” (Alpopp), but today, not so much – I didn’t want to be first, I didn’t want to sit in the front row, I didn’t want them to start at the beginning of the alphabet and I didn’t want the notoriety of seeing my name emblazoned on those dratted screens.

We sat in silence as the first four groups of fifty-some each, were called out for the various court assignments. Rick and I took a collective breath, blinked with a knowing signal of satisfaction, but said not a word; we were hoping against hope it would soon be over.

Not so fast – there is was: S ALPOPP – doom had landed after all. I collected my necessities, made plans for the lunch break and took my place in line with fifty other sheep.

From that point on, I was Number 19 and trying to make it as lucky as I could among these strangers in paradise. It was at that moment, I decided to change my persona and become the silent, mysterious woman I knew I could be – for once; not engaging in casual conversation, not making little jokes or exposing what lurked behind my naked eyes;

 

I just watched, waited, and followed orders like a militant. As we were about to depart, the drama began. When we took our initial step toward the courtroom, one woman rattled the crowd by voicing her fear of the tall escalator. (Oh, brother, here we go – the crazies are out and running.

She got her special treatment through a secret passage – oh, lucky girl!) We trailed up the escalator, through the halls, over the bridge, through the woods and into elevators to another building before we landed on the thirteenth floor.

(|A groaning reality to the superstitious in the crowd – I tried to ignore the nervous comments). Miss Scare-Dee-Cat arrived and took her numerical place in line – she was No. 13, oh yes, and one to remember later. We squeezed into numerical order in the courtroom and awaited the Judge, his instructions and all the questioning that would surely follow.

The interrogations became the jaw-dropping entertainment of the day. I came, wide-eyed and open to the experience, while the rest came rehearsed and prepared for a quick dismissal.

This was Central Casting at its finest; right out of Hollywood and I was about to witness some of the most dramatic recitations in the modern day, legal world. In numerical order, we each stood to recite a brief statement of our background.

Those demonstrations, alone, got my juices flowing; not in what they said, but in the mealy-mouth delivery of their life experiences. They spoke so low, the Judge kept asking them to repeat themselves and each acted as if they were afraid to come out of the shadows of themselves.

I stood and spoke so loudly everyone knew not to mess with me and sat down, chastising myself for exposing the mystery within, as I had promised. (Lesson to self: shut-up)

The Judge began the long questioning task – delving only into the questions of those who raised their numbered card number to give oblique answers to hopefully, and artfully, weasel out of jury duty:

-Anyone have a medical condition that would cause difficulty…..???

-Anyone have family members, friends, neighbors in law-enforcement, legal work……?

-Anyone ever been a victim of a crime, abuse…….

-Anyone have opposing views of marijuana….?

-Anyone ever been charged with a felony or had a family member involved in a felony……?

-Anyone have trouble following the law or making judgment as a juror….?

-And on it went on. (This guy was getting a fair trial for sure – it was Self-Elimination Day)

Oh, Those questions prompted responses by the score – cards were waving like they were in a ticker-tape parade.

Number 13, Miss Escalator 2017, had just be diagnosed with an undefined heart condition, requiring a single medication to address it and more testing ahead. It took her an hour to get to the court today and the traffic caused her much stress.

(“Hey, Lady, do you think the rest of us were hosted in a downtown hotel last night?; I think we passed you on the interstate this morning.”) Later, she told the Judge she was also under much stress in thinking this 3-day trial would cause her beauty shop great financial loss if it was closed too long, after all, she was stressed, being the shop’s owner and sole support……yak-yak. (Now I lay me down to sleep)

A lady behind me said she was Catholic and could not judge another human being – “God is our only judge|”.

(Let’s call the Pope in on this, please) Nearly everyone was related or knew someone in legal work and law-enforcement, except me.

I could not think of one person except my late Uncle, from forty-years ago, but perhaps, today, he would qualify for me. (As I sat silent – I thought – “Hey, I licked stamps for a lawyer once”).

The Judge’s follow-up questions to these flimsy excuses should have provided an embarrassing moment for some of these people, but no, they went on and on.

Number 18, sitting next to me, explained the depth of his marvelous BA degree in Law and Criminology, about eight years ago. When the Judge asked how he was using that education, the jerk reported he has been unemployed for some time now.

(I bit my lip) This is the guy who would later, pace the halls with us, explaining to this captive audience, how, why and what to expect from the Judge and this trial. He was wrong on every count. (Jail him for false testimony!)

A twenty-five year old gal who sat on my bench, three places down, previously unnoticed by anyone in the group, started quivering, as if on cue when the Judge asked if anyone had a reason for feeling they could not participate in the trial.

Her card was waving so hard, all surrounding hot flashes ceased. She said she was having an anxiety attack and began weeping. WHAT? There had been no meltdowns downstairs, on the escalator, in the elevator nor in the hallway; not until this moment. What just happened here?

Was she suddenly stressed because her pants and shirt were too tight? (and not in a good way). (I am boiling inside – but my maturity holds me back – I AM that mysterious woman after all). I passed her tissue. Gad!!!

Two women needed to pump milk, periodically, for their new babies – one had no stash for tomorrow’s feeding – her son would starve without her.

(I could not compete with that line – I nearly passed out) Hadn’t the Mother, without a sufficient supply of milk, ever heard of advanced planning or a refrigerator? (I handed them coupons for canned milk).

A father of five, spoke of his early brush with the law when a policemen asked him to turn down his car radio when he was sixteen. (A nothing-burger attempt for being excused.

Note: He’s raising children of his own teenagers now – send them all to counseling) Another had an aunt in law enforcement, in Florida, twenty years ago.

(I can’t sit here) Miss Priss’s husband had his watch stolen ten years ago. The watch was recovered and some insurance reimbursement was offered, but she could be impartial in this case. (Really? This is about drugs; not theft, lady. Free me from this madness now!)

It was almost noon when the Judge and the attorneys huddled around the bench to decided which jurors would be dismissed from service and then, read their numbers.

Half the room emptied – decidedly, the wimps were among them. Good riddance!

Wait!! I’m still here! I had no story, no embellishments, no legal entanglements, no drama, no where to go, but to lunch with Rick. On the long walk between the courtroom and assembly room, I quieted my shock by reviewing the puny excuses that apparently worked.

During the lunch break, my only comment was, “Pass me my sandwich, p-l-e-a-s-e”. I couldn’t speak to him about the proceedings, but did relay my lowered expectations in not being called to trial after all.

With about twenty-eight potential jurors remaining, my fate was almost sealed, but there would be another round of questioning after lunch.

The twenty-eight lucky losers assembled in the hall outside the courtroom – most looking down at their phones while the law professor paced, preaching his prophesy to those who refused make eye contact.

I stood silent in my new-found aura while others whispered small talk nonsense. The door opened and we were seated again in our appointed spots for more drilling; more juicy tales of woe.

I sat, flipping through my empty Rolodex of referrals, trying to conjure a previous appointment with a dirty past. I was void. I was that special sacrifice to legal doomsday.

After another hour of tall tales, we numeric specimens were relegated to the hall again for a short break that lasted far past the Judge’s prediction. That’s when a few jury potentials started finger-pointing and singling-out their choices of finalists.

One view was, that all the women would be chosen because they represented sympathy toward the sorry defendant. Others would be dismissed because of their past experiences with legal issues.

I remained silent; just listening to the theories, both musing and assessing the credibility of their ideas.

They just couldn’t decide about me because I never raised my card, nor spoke. I smiled, but the joker inside wanted to shout, “Fry him”, and scare them all.

In my faith, I know I am flawed, but a redeemed human being for eternity, however, this eye-opening experience leaves me thinking, I’m closer to perfection than I could ever imagine. Either that, or I am just too boring.

The door opened after the long, overdue session within and we were all asked to go in and sit on the benches in the back, in no particular order. Dead silence reigned.

With the defendant and attorneys standing and facing us, the Judge thanked everyone for appearing for service. What’s going on? Had there been a plea? Was it over before it started?

Were we all about to be dismissed? No! The Judge said, “As your number is read, please take the seat you are directed to, in the Jury Box”. (The mood was sobering)

Seemingly, in order, numbers were read and one by one and people moved to the hot seats. Two, Nine, Twelve, Twenty-three; on and on it went.

I dared not breathe, they skipped over nineteen, but I never exhaled for fear they were tricking us with the numbering system. Finally, after the selection of ten people, it ended. Only ten?

It is a trick! But when the Judge said, “Thank you all for your service – those whose numbers were not called are dismissed” – it was rats on a sinking ship as people started stepping on and over each other to scramble out of that room.

In the end, most of those chosen were those who had talked too much about crime and their attachments to law enforcement or experiences with same – those with the excuses.

Perhaps, the defense attorney thought they would be more passionate with the circumstances of the case. Several of those chosen were the very ones who “anointed other jury candidates” in the hallway earlier. (Yes, there were chuckles as we left)

Mysterious or not – this was my answered prayer. I had prayed that God would “get me through this” – didn’t know how; didn’t know what, but in the asking, it happened.

I praised the Lord with every rapid step back to collect Rick and tell him the news. I had not spoken but a few words all day and it all came tumbling out after the bus ride back to the car with other dismissed jurors, and all the way home.

That’s when my true self was released and revealed – a blabber mouth. What a “mysterious” day in the life of jury duty.

it’s not just working towards fixing the problems it’s about building the system’s setting up the infrastructure the right way so that we build this into the company that we know it’s going to be and so as we get there remember you know we are pioneers we are fighting and building every single day sometimes you guys are going to see what you want to see but trust us we are working on everything together I want to just trust me want to show you we’re going to you know that’s part of what this call is to talk about what the specifics we have that we’re putting into place the things that we’re

passion that’s what that’s what that’s what’s going to make this company great so I do want to jump in let me give you some specifics and manual things that we are putting in place right now that you’re going to be able to see the number one when we put the the VIP card Commission data up on the back in your back office that was a wonderful thing and people said thank you we can finally start to see these cards that were put there were giving out there are actually being booked can use and were able to see those dollars actually collected and that was a great start but you know we really

very very soon into your dashboard so you’re going to be able to see not just the dollars that you’re accumulating from looking at the number of these cars that are actually getting activated and that’s important because you know we’ve talked about how you share the good life and how you share the VIP cards it’s not just throwing out you engage you teach you talk to people about what we what we are you follow up when you can and so you really want to be able to see what’s working what’s not and the activation date and something’s really critically important so we’ve got that coming for you and that’s something that’s that’s a positive that something is going to be in place very soon you’re going to be able to see that and and we’re excited about that the other thing I wanted to touch on briefly was shipping and fulfillment obviously you know we have a third part of your problem that was what I I’m feeling for that statement and shoot your dog or your screen or this one actually it’s a problem very quickly be resolved removing a great face thats going to cover that these are good problem for problem number less you probably say that before but another great area that were working on is obviously with our fulfillment we have third-party fulfillment that we’ve talked about in the past and we are continuing to improve that process getting the software in place making sure that we streamline that process one of the things that we actually just put into place today was a software fix that was allowing us to actually take the orders the new IBO kid orders and actually placed them hand them directly often fulfillment so it’s an extra step that we needed to work through but now that we have that orders that are going out that are being made are going to contain easily into our shipping q so that’s going to represent a big step forward is fulfilling these orders and getting them done quicker of course we still have that kind of backlog of orders that we need to address and we are working tirelessly day and night to get those orders not just the ideal kids but the the court orders themselves get them out the door there’s a simple solution to have you got to stop working and you know we got up but if you don’t want to do that yeah we do our part to make sure we catch up to you at once again don’t don’t don’t matter what happened a good mood so one of the things i want to have you made chili because we’re really really excited to have him here because he’s adding something really spectacular 22 are you are companies and how we’re going to be able to grow really set the future but before we get into that I didn’t want to touch you have much of the programming we want to be honest we want to direct we’re going to talk about this clearly and openly so you know I’m gonna be serious here for a moment you know we’ve made a lot of promises that we have not delivered when it came to our program and you know what actually happened is this you know we talked about this and some and you feel like you feel so bad when you really want to deliver something for everybody just hasn’t happened here’s the bottom line we spent a lot of time and a lot of money paying a bunch of developers that guaranteed a certain delivery dates and certain things that would happen and the bottom line is they just didn’t deliver we fired much Pete we just had a fire and realize that you know what we’ve lost the time we lost the money and we’ve got to start over again so we started with new developers developers are doing a great job we’ve got away now to kind of look and evaluate what’s happening on a day-to-day basis to make sure this never happens again and we’re moving very very fast pace to deliver what we’ve always thought we were going to deliver about two months ago for you out there what it means is this we’re going to see listing platform a while longer just funny works functional functional everything’s got to do in calculating but what it doesn’t do is the things we really want to be able to do which is bringing all the outside teams and which for a lot of you out there and i said before we’ll for those years are building will come up quite a bit when that happens now for the people who are building your income will probably go down you know when that happens so obviously you wanted yesterday and we understand that so we’re working to get that done but but you have to look at what the grand plan is your guys we’re talking about something debt with this legacy tree and starting to open other countries we’re going to be having explosive growth everywhere we go and obviously we’re building a platform that will handle that growth in the future so we can’t accept anything left and so we’re not going a little analysis done we know that it’s going to frustrate you a little bit longer trusts reits us what kind if you look at things on it sometimes happens yeah I’ve seen people get involved how come they were successful other people you know why people become successful lot of people fail because the people online are social excited what happened against the problem this is too much I can’t do this I’m I’m gonna deal with this i’m not i just go somewhere and great you can do that but the reality is in life the opportunities always there and you sometimes have the biggest issues in the biggest problems we solve that if you stick it out and that’s always had success if everybody else quit i’m just getting started because I believe that splits the difference in life and business and that’s what you guys are all right now because promise you for those who maybe don’t stick it out but you’re gonna look back no doubt you look back two years on my gosh what did i do what did i do the top think that companies because ladies if you look at what we’re talking about today you can realize whatever the options are we’re going to fix him yeah we’re going to build spending customer service Jones gonna be talking about that in just a minute we’re expecting company service to solve all the problems all the issues were fixing the shipping problems there’s going to be a thing of the past year and a week and i’m gonna be talking are foundational things these are the critical things that have to be right and we can make up some story we could bring in some substitute for a solution that’s not what we are now we’re ever going to be we’re going to do it the right way even if it means have any contrast and painful reality you know what we wanted to deliver this but it wasn’t what we wanted it wasn’t our vision you want to deliver to you so we have our developers and they’re out there and they’re making it happen now and and you know the great thing is it comes to our corporate offices and you see this happening you know we just doubled our sides are spaced we just took the other half of the building so this thing is growing very rapidly will bring it on to employees that Julie talk about what we’re doing from a standpoint of customer service now because that’s one of the issues to is getting to the calls and answer the call in my head right now further ado here’s our new manager of operations brings a lot of great experience a lot of great perspective on things and really somebody’s going to come in and help us really in all of these areas build systems that we’ve talked

a lot of these guys are talking about you know these are growing things you know we’re always going to experience these things in the beginning and you know that’s part of the success so that’s part of the process you know if it was eating everybody would get in the beginning but that’s why you guys are here on the ground floor you know we really do appreciate you taking the time and you know

with customer support with shipping or even going to be doing some international expansion here very i’m excited to work with you that’s going to be the fun part absolutely have to all the great

open those countries and sometimes they just want you doing this so that we can look at a lot of different countries and and what we’re going to look at as a company is ok where is the biggest excited to come from whatever that country is it’s creating a massive amount of free registration and excitement guess what that’s going to do next is we’re gonna open because obviously that’s going to be the most beneficial to all of you especially if you understand the legacy trail is so if you have to know people in countries that some countries were talking about that may be interested you might want to start letting them know they want to start setting up some of the some of the materials and some of our some of our videos and thanks because that’s going to be set up i’m hoping that will be up in the next week based on what i’m told i will be able to deliver that but i’m not saying for sure i’m hoping strongly hoping that i can get that sign up for you so these are a lot of really exciting things that we have going on oh it’s on our events but saturday Saturday at ten a.m. in miami we’ve got an IBO sponsored event at the hilton garden inn and it’s going to be a spanish and english presentation so if you’re in the Miami area if you have Hispanic with friends or if you want to come and have that experience it’s also going to be in English as well as can be sightings can be fun and really excited yes I have actually speaking I didn’t know that my wife and formula back I’m doing one portion of the so you wouldn’t translate in both Spanish and English ok so we’ve got up and not going out the few cities but we are talking and trying to get some date certain for some cities to get the get the the bus out back on the road in New York arizona i get to the place where we get a lot of interest to try to do something very and it’s the same thing there are people if you have people that are interested in you know you can kind of promised a substantial amount couple hundred people that are going to be a room we’re gonna we’re gonna get there in some form or function so we want we want to help you build your organization we want to help get that word out it’s just with these live events when we get out on the road it is it’s just the excitement is it something else that is really some state to actually keep thinking about that Atlanta Atlanta a couple weeks ago and just Channing good life good life in the room I guess what covers maybe a little about what we got left is yeah you want to try and wrap that up and then I just got one thought I want everybody to tonight’s call but what we’re also really looking at doing here in April or May is our first Weaver seminar and this is going to be open to any ideas that wants to attend going to be in a beautiful destination of course we actually one of our first dream destinations where we’re looking right now at either something maybe at all inclusive in Mexico we’re looking at maybe a Caribbean trip and we’re also looking at cruises so we’re going to kind of make that decision what we’ve talked about doing is putting up a site here i was just talking with John right before we went live he said give us till friday so on friday will try to put up a site John making know this is able to deliver on this it will have a site where you can go in and we’ll give you some options or what you would like where you’d like to go and also how many people you think with a tent that was yourself and maybe part of your group because one of the things we’ve got to do is is we got to figure out how many people are going to be going so that we can go go out negotiate the best deal because obviously the buying power we have already got great prices but we can really get unbelievable pricing we’ve got a group going somewhere so we’re going to put that out and we’ll give you all the details to the website to go to so you’ll be able to look at that and start that three registration process therefore the event and again it’s just you know you’re not obligate yourself together just saying look I really like to go and then it gives us an idea of what to expect and we don’t know if we’re going to have on the first 100 200 500 have no idea and we will make this something really spectacular for you guys because all the owners will be there some of top management from the company will be there all obvious all the top ideas will be there will be the first time for us to be together as a group and really exchange tremendous yeah idea it’ll be fun it’ll be educational and a great great forever changing my guess is we’ll probably be unveiling something I’m sure it’ll be something some surprises so that’s one thing i wanted to share and the last thing i want to share was just kind of a personal thought but is there anything else here I’ll wrap it up you guys do anything else you’d like to add my wrap this up now we’ve got work to do one last thing something to think about you know the other day I was listening in customer service and some guys called and he’s really upset about not getting his cards and stuff and he was talking about quitting and everything and it really bothered me really Bobby thinking this guy’s I understand the frustration i really do like get it quick because of it and I understand that but they can only some way I could convey to him if he would just hang in there what that’s going to mean am in the coming years because guys there is no way unless you do this like I have 45 years and you see what we’ve actually put together this legacy tree i think most people don’t get what’s going to happen for those of you like those children i’m talking about what would happen if you stayed and would have been in this legacy treat what that was meant to him and his family in the years to come because you’ve got to put in perspective it’s not just what you’re going to do once you have a legacy tree every country in the world that we open its going to fall under that tree and you’re gonna get compensation and you can’t put a price tag on what they could possibly mean and so I see here that it’s like it’s really it’s not that we gotta have and we’re gonna feel about no I feel sad because I don’t want that person to lose the opportunity I really don’t know one person to ever lose this opportunity itself you know i’m not blaming us a better job but also please use the chance because we’re going to this that’s shifting problem guys it’s going to be fixed in two weeks I don’t think we talking about again but you get over that and costing the position in the legacy tree was probably going to change his wife yeah so well put well put know that back to hang in there guys keep working and keep that vision keep that belief in what we know we’re building what we’re going to build together so with that we say thank you for tuning in the wonderful week take care and god bless

Good Life USA Info GoodLife Is It A Real Opportunity?

Good Life USA Info GoodLife Is It A Real Opportunity?

GoodLife USASo there’s a brand new network marketing company getting some buzz around the Industry. The company is called Good Life USA and as of this writing the company is doing a soft launch. Now if you’re reading this, then chances are you’re thinking about joining the company but you’re doing some research online. If that’s the case, then look no further because in this Good Life USA info, I’m going to cover all the essential details you’ll need before you join. With that said, I do want to disclose that I am in Good Life and I am a affiliated with them. I think it’s important for you to know that.

Good Life USA info – Who Is Good Life Anyway?

First and foremost, if you’re thinking about joining the company then you should start by looking at the company itself. Sure the compensation plan is important, but what good is it if the company is not set up to be around long term. Being that the company is so new and it’s going through a soft launch, there’s not a ton of information online. However, they do have a functioning company website which is a good thing. From what I see, the Florida-based company sells travel through a network marketing model. From a marketing standpoint, travel makes a lot of sense to market since you don’t have to explain what it is, and you don’t have to convince someone to do it. You’re basically offering savings on travel and who doesn’t want to save money? What’s unique about Good Life USA is they offer a 110% refund of the difference if you use the search engine and find lower prices on another travel website.

The company’s CEO and Co-founder is Mark Seyforth. Seyforth is an MLM veteran and was last known for One24. While I was not involved with One24, I do know that some reputable marketers were making some good money there before it fizzled out. From what I’ve seen, Seyforth is a credible leader which is a good thing if you join since you want to have good people leading the organization. Overall, it’s hard to say how solid the company is especially because start-ups typically go out of business within their first 5 years. That being said, the company has an experienced management team and travel is a booming industry that’s projected to grow over the next 20 years.

Good Life USA Info- Can You Make Money With Good Life?

Good Life USAThere are a few different options to get started as a distributor. Here’s a simple breakdown of the 3 memberships available:

IBO Enrollment – $79
IBO + Silver Membership Enrollment – $129 + $9/month
IBO + Gold Membership Enrollment – $179 + $39.95/month
IBO + Platinum Membership Enrollment – $279 + $59.95/month

Like most network marketing compensation plans, there’s potential to earn immediate income and backend residual income. The two components of the compensation plan that are most attractive are the 2X20 Matrix and the various incentives as you move through the ranking system. As you grow your business you can qualify for cash incentives and monthly cash bonuses, as well as the opportunity to earn Private Club Memberships (Golf club, Boat club, etc.), Recreational Bonuses, Car Bonuses and Lifestyle Bonuses (which can be used for Dream Home, private plane, helicopter, etc.). As far as the Matrix goes, you’ll earn between 2% and 5% of the BV down 20 levels. The cool thing about a Matrix is you could get spillover from everyone above you if you get in early. So in theory, you could be earning residual income from efforts put forth by your uplines. You just need to get in early on (which is perfect since the company is in soft launch right now) and personally sponsor at least 2 people. After reviewing the compensation plan, it’s pretty clear that there’s definitely potential and for the right person Good Life USA could be a financial windfall.

Good Life USA Info – So Should You Join?

GoodlifeWell… only you can really answer that question. If you like joining new companies and you love to travel, Good Life USA just might be a perfect fit. The compensation plan is generous, the management team has experience and there’s no easier product to talk about than travel. All you need to do is join and see success, right? Nothing could be further from the truth. While all those things are beneficial to have in a company, your success ultimately depends on your ability to sponsor new people into your team consistently. This is why I recommend that you learn Attraction Marketing. If you could position yourself online and generate leads daily, there’s no telling how big your Good Life USA business can be.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Once you Activate your VIP Club Card, and create your login credentials, you will have exclusive access to Goodlife USA’s proprietary Hotel Booking Engine, which provides exclusive savings NOT available to the general public.

Members of the general public book their hotels on the Internet either through one of the Online Travel Agencies (“OTA’s”) such as Expedia, Hotels.com, Booking.com, Priceline.com, Trivago, TripAdvisor and others. There are hundreds of OTA’s, however; just two companies – Expedia and Priceline, own most of them. Accordingly, pricing in the public markets is generally the same from Website to Website. Try it for yourself. Search for the same hotel on Hotels.com and Expedia and Orbitz.com, and you’ll find the pricing to be virtually the same.

#GoodLifeSince Goodlife USA does not allow members of the general public to access its proprietary Hotel Booking Engine, they can show prices that are below what is shown on the public OTA websites. As a Goodlife USA VIP Club Card member, your login credentials are your key to accessing Goodlife USA’s proprietary rates. This is very similar to shopping at Costco® or SAM’S Club®. You pay a membership fee to gain exclusive access to their ‘member-only’ pricing online, and in their clubs. Goodlife USA brings you this same concept in online Travel, and we back it up with a 110% Price Match Guarantee!

You’re in the right place, at the right time, to start saving on over 900,000 Hotels and Resorts worldwide, with Goodlife USA. Once you get a taste of what we call, the ‘Good Life’, feel free to explore additional options that will allow you to save money on unlimited Hotels, Resort Condos, Cruises, Packaged Vacations, and a whole lot more.

And if you’d like to find out how you could make $100 when someone you give a FREE VIP Club Card to saves $200, just click on the video links, and Jodi, our friendly travel host, will tell you all about it.
