So you bought a timeshare and now you can't use it... It is hard to book what you want... Everything seems to need more points than you own... You are not even sure how you would do what the salesperson said was possible.... You are angry and feel lied to.... Well, you wouldn't be the first person to feel that way.

In this video, I go through some options of how you can dig yourself out of this whole. You can't control what the salesperson said or what you understood at the time... But you can control what you do next... My goal for you would be to help you book your first vacation even if it isn't as grand as the salesperson promised... But by slowly getting better, you may begin to achieve what you had hoped for. Hopefully, this video will provide at a minimum a chance to keep going...
