In a short while you may never look for another job ever again.
Instead, you may decide to spend more time relaxing at home, take trips with your family, and help others experience the world through travel. The pressure you feel to provide and pay those bills could all be a distant memory!
Imagine... You wake up, snug in your warm bed. You roll over lazily to look at the clock on your phone.
It's 9:00 am, the time you would normally be at work. The light comes through the window. There's no rush. You wander over to the computer to check on your business. While you were asleep, 2 new businesses signed up and ordered 100 incentives from you at $10 each. You made $2000.
You smile, and take your first morning stretch. No need to get dressed and stumble into work. No racing through traffic. No office politics. No boss to kiss up to. You're writing your own checks now. You relax for the first time in ages, sinking into your comfy bed again, trying to remember why you didn't start this sooner.
You're different now. You're more easy going, more playful, and smiling more often. Your family wants to be around you more, you want to play with the kids more often. You say "yes" when friends and family invite you somewhere, because this time you can afford it. Heck, you can pay for everyone else including yourself!
Your life becomes enhanced, you become relaxed and secure. You finally become more...YOU.
Sound like a fantasy? To some, it is. But for anyone who understands business, the offer available to you is truly a one of a kind income generating machine.
Don't worry - we'll show you how it all works, step by step. But first, you may be asking - who are we to give you money making advice? In fact, who am I? Let's start there and tell you a little bit about me....
One day, I was on my way to work at a top level financial planning firm. I loved going to work. It was my dream job. A dark shiny desk, my own office with a view, a long list of appreciative clients and moral support surrounded me there. I'd landed some really big clients for the firm, especially for my young age, and had gotten a reputation as a go-getter. I'd had a horrible flu several days before, and had to take a few days off to get better. I was anxious to come in and catch up on things.
When I got into the office, all I got from my co-workers was a quick "hello" and a sudden turn away. "They probably don't want to get sick," I thought. I couldn't blame them. When I got to my office, my boss was there, in my chair. This didn't seem good. I sat down across from him on the other side of my desk.
"What's up? What's going on today? Are we moving offices?" I asked. "I'm sorry Ryan, but I've got some bad news. Your largest client called in looking for you over the weekend and said it was an emergency. They couldn't reach you, so I handed them over to Stan."
I was relieved. "Oh ok, no big deal then. I will tell him thanks for helping out & touch base to make sure they don't have any additional questions. Is there anything else?"
My boss looked at me like I was a complete idiot, and said, "Ryan - the client now belongs to Stan. You're a good kid, but Stan is here every weekend, and was here to take the call when you weren't. That's the kind of dedication we're looking for here."
I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I had put in months to land that client! I depended on that client for a large percentage of my pay check! They gave away my client because I didn't work WEEKENDS?! Did I have to completely sell my soul to be successful or taken seriously at this firm? As I found out, the answer was "yes." I didn't understand why a company (or any business), would want to play employees against each other, reward unethical behavior, and randomly change rules that kept employees guessing, instead of dedicated to a common goal.
I guess I still don't. I only worked at that company for a few months after that. I couldn't stand the snarking I got from Stan, and the ever changing office politics that never seemed to end in my favor. I was disheartened to say the least. The job that I worked for and dreamed of, to help others with their money, ended up basically robbing me of mine. It was a tough lesson.
The day I left that job my mom called & asked me to lunch. My father passed away when I was just 14, and she'd been very wise to make weekly lunch dates to keep a close tab on me (which proved helpful during my teen years).
She'd listen to me without judgment during those lunches, and even if I might get a lecture afterwards, those times were always special. I was feeling so badly, I found myself looking forward to a little sympathy.
Boy was I in for a rude awakening. I met my mom for lunch, but sympathy seemed to have gotten lost on the way there.
She patted me briskly on the shoulder and said, "Son, this is just one of many curve balls life will throw at you. You've got to take what you know, and make it work for you. No more whining now, let's eat!"
It was hard to hear at first, but my mom kept my mind off my own problems and told me about work at the agency.
She told me about how customers aren't sure if they should use travel agents anymore due to all the online booking options out there.
That head of mine did some thinking that day. And the next day, and the next. About a week later, I had convinced my best friend Mike to help me out part time on this crazy idea I had.
Over the next few months, I spoke with travel wholesalers all over the world and got them to agree to this crazy idea.
What if, instead of marking up hotel prices, and charging customers a percentage when we book them - what if customers just paid a flat fee up front, and we NEVER marked up the price?
It was just crazy enough to work - and we had one client who was VERY interested in a corporate account, if only we could put it together in time...
TravelZoo was interested in our idea to offer a flat rate getaway. It was easy to understand, affordable and very flexible. No blackout dates, no advance booking requirements, choose any location. It was unlike any other travel incentive out there!
The customer would only have to pay the wholesale cost of the hotel when they finalized their trip - but that could mean they paid $30 a night or saved $500 on a beachfront Hawaii resort! The savings would vary from guest to guest - but the flexibility and potential savings was huge.
A totally new concept they were eager to jump on!
Our first deal sold over 11,200 in just 2 days. At just $49 each, that gave us $560,000.
Pretty soon, Groupon and about a zillion other daily deal sites wanted in. We had a business model that was working - and we were raking in cash hand over fist!
We started out using my mom's agency to answer phones and book customers, but soon outgrew them. Now we have our own in house agency that books all reservations.
Over the next few months and years we have developed incredibly high end brand name clients that use our deals and incentives. Bank of America, ASPCA, Geico, Ford, and many more.
As lame as this sounds - even with all the money, I was not really that happy. I mean, don't get me wrong. Piles of cash is great. I paid off all my college loans, my car, and my moms' car within 6 months.
It was just that I was working harder than ever before. More hours, managing sales, lots of paperwork and advertising costs to approve all the time. But I wasn't really building anything or helping anyone. It wasn't me.
My entire college career was built on the idea of helping others make money. I needed to expand the program to include this - but how? My buddy Mike had been involved in the business with me for awhile now, and had a great idea one day over lunch.
"What if we let other people sell the offers, instead of selling them all ourselves? They can earn 100% profits, but won't be employees! This will cut down on tons of time & costs, while letting other people generate a full time income in part time hours!"
So let me ask you a question.
How long does it usually take you to earn $100? If you have a full time job, the answer is probably approximately 1 day, give or take a few bucks.
Now count to 10. That’s how fast you could be earning $100.
Think about that. Real money in 10 seconds. That's about the amount of time it takes for a customer to click "Buy Now" and submit a payment.
Without recruiting family and friends. Without selling door to door. Without dusty products filling up your garage. Without any technical knowledge. It is more than possible. It's happening right now to thousands of members!
Here's how just a few of our many resellers make it happen!
One of our first resellers signed up when we first began. His name is Jeremy. Jeremy had pretty much graduated high school with straight D's. He was not a person who was motivated by school or the learning process. His family had all been electricians, and he expected that would be his lot - to join the family business someday.
Jeremy gave this a shot and didn't ask much to start out. He sold his first incentives for just $5. But he sold them in sets of 50. Every sale Jeremy made, he profited $250. Jeremy began to market to larger businesses, who started to buy them in sets of 1000 at a time for a $5000 profit. Every month.
Jeremy expanded this client to include other branches, and ended up with 24 offices ordering a minimum of $5000 worth of incentives every month. Jeremy eventually sold us this client, took what we paid him, reinvested it, and retired at the age of 34. The client was a number of Ford Dealerships who remain with us today.
At the time Jeremy left, his monthly income was over $120,000.00 a month.
Kelly is my hero. She was in high school when she signed up. Just 18, she was trying to earn money to take a graduation trip through a popular travel program called Outward Bound. The trip was for 2 weeks in the Costa Rica rainforest.
She used the printed incentives to go door to door to local businesses in her home town of San Diego. She sold them for $20 each. It took her just 2 days to earn enough money to go on that trip. One business she walked into bought 100 on the spot - the others she sold one or two at a time to individuals. Once she sold out, the business that had placed the large order called her the week after, asking if she had any more. She printed some more, called a few more businesses, and within a few months bought herself her very first car, free and clear.
Kelly is now an accountant, running her own successful firm. We're super glad that she was a part of our team and that she made it work so well for herself!
Since then, many high school and college kids have used our incentives to fund raise - from everything from tuition, to spring break funds, to backpacking trips through Europe!
Scott is in network marketing. He knows how to build a team. And boy, did he build a team! Scott had a brilliant idea to recruit college kids to resell incentives for themselves - and charged them just $99 for a whole year's worth of access! (Sound familiar? Scott is using our Elite Plan!)
Scott is a genius, and here is why.
He does NO work. He collects $99 up front. He sends the customer ONE email. He does NO customer service. He does NO booking. We handle it all. If his customers use the incentives for themselves to travel cheap - great. If they forget about it and lose interest - he's already been paid. If the customer is very active and has a thousand questions - we deal with it. Scott is a winner.
At last count, Scott has had over 865 customers sign up through his website. (That's $86,500 for you math majors!) And counting!
Shondra is the sweetest, and doesn't even sell her incentives. She runs a salon. She wanted a new way to attract clients, so she created a "Wedding Day" spa package for brides and bridesmaids. Shondra charges full price for every item on her spa and salon package. But she gives the bride to be a honeymoon of her choice! Her customers get to choose if they want to enjoy a 4 day All Inclusive Resort, a 5 day Hawaii trip, or a Luxury Resort week!
But the interest she has generated from word of mouth referrals, has doubled her wedding clientele. Why go anywhere else to get pampered for your special day - when you can also get a honeymoon out of it?! This brilliant business move is made possible with our Unlimited Plan, for just $99 all year!
Ben is a former mortgage broker. He doesn't want to return to this line of work ever again - so he doesn't. Instead, he's used our biggest and best plan to build up a website to do all the work for him! Customers go to Ben's site to get access to Vacation Memberships. But this is no ordinary vacation membership, and these are no ordinary customers.
Ben targets current and former timeshare owners. People who have owned, or still own, a set property that they paid thousands, sometimes tens of thousands of dollars for. Here is Ben's pitch.
"You paid $9,000 for this one property, and get to use it once every year for one week, right? Great, our membership will let you use UNLIMITED weeks for enormous discounts worldwide - you won't be stuck with just one property. Not only that, you can share it with your friends and family too! It's only $1000 to sign up, and $99 yearly maintenance fee for the account."
He earns $1000 up front for every sale, and $99 every year they remain a customer. He gives them access to all the vacation incentives you see on our site. The product he offers is NO DIFFERENT than the one you will be offering. It is just presented differently (and for more money.)
He now has 12 reps, who all make about 4 sales a day.
That's $48,00 a day. So, at life - Ben is winning. We're proud of Ben!
Georganne has 3 kids at home, one with special needs, a husband who works all day, and they were struggling to pay the bills. A perfect cliche. With a background in teaching, (and raising kids) she decided to target those she knew best - other moms. She created a blog and some free business cards from VistaPrint and began to write. She wrote about the first trip she took using her own incentives - how affordable it was, how it brought her family closer together, helped them enjoy life just a little bit more - and included a link to her site.
Sales were slow. She would check her blog views daily, but it just wasn't doing what she'd hoped. Always on a budget, she decided to watch some YouTube videos on marketing, and decided Facebook would be the first avenue she would try. She created a Facebook advertisement, and began to run it in different cities. After a few weeks, her blog views and sales really picked up!
Her sales today are approximately 14 a week. Moms who sign up pay just $99. This gives Georganne $1386 extra dollars each week to help her family. We have high hopes for her, she has only been with us for 3 months!
Worried that your paycheck isn't cutting it? You're not alone!

Just Sit Down, Relax, and Read This! Money Relief Starts Now!
My name is Ryan. I’m the founder and CEO of Vacation Incentives Unlimited. I graduated Northwestern University (Go Wildcats!) with a degree in financial planning. I made it my mission for over a decade to help others learn about money. How to view it, how to use it, and most importantly how to make it work for them.
My best friend Mike attended college with me, but he pursued a degree in online marketing. And wow - is he a pro! Mike has worked at some very prestigious companies over the years - but finally agreed to come help me out on this one idea we thought just might work....
You see, my background is actually in travel. My mom, my aunt and my 2 sisters have been travel agents since I can remember. My first job at age 14 was to answer phones in their agency, and over the next 4 summers, I learned a lot about travel.
But I digress...
Then I asked her the GOLDEN QUESTION that changed everything in our lives from that moment on...
"How come there is no way for customers to see the wholesale pricing for themselves?" She answered, "Because it's against the rules. No one is allowed to see wholesale pricing except for agencies. Anyways, it wouldn't matter if they did - we have to mark it up to make a profit."
An idea hit me like lightning. "What if you didn't mark up the hotels? What if you gave it to the customer at the same cost the hotel gave it to you for?" She laughed and said, "How on earth would we make any money?! Sometimes Ryan, that head of yours!"
If I was ever to have a man-crush, it would have been on Mike, in that moment. It was pure genius.
We began to put the plan in place. We slowly cut back our in house sales and advertising team, freeing up tons of time and resources. We began to beta test a few plans for interested customers to resell for themselves, and slowly began to cut out what they didn't need, and and paste in what they needed to be more successful.
The results were tremendous. Successful beyond our wildest dreams.
We had resellers who were earning everything from $10 per incentive to resellers who thought way outside the box, and sold package deals and memberships for THOUSANDS. We got letters, emails, gift baskets from many happy resellers. (Still do!) This was where it was at for me. Changing lives. Changing incomes. Providing THIS opportunity was what I needed to stay in business. So here we are, almost 15 years later.
