Another couple that went on a FREE trip through the LIFE Leadership company was Jon and Heather Groves.  They are awesome friends, family and leaders to many.  We were so excited when they told us about earning this vacation and getting the call from the travel agent.  I asked them to send us a little recap of how this trip was and what others can expect to get when they go.

Here is what they had to say:Groves Family Disney Trip

It’s the trip you’ve always wished you could take with your family but couldn’t quite pull off. Instead of eating snack bars and pb&j’s stuffed in a backpack for the day, you actually go to all of those restaurants you told your kids to not even think about the first time around. With a simple signature on the bill you’re off to enjoy more sights and rides. The travel agent is extremely helpful with all of the details and investigating all of the options that you could want. We stayed an extra night at the resort the day/ night before the park tickets so we could take some time to relax after the trip and enjoy the amazing features of the hotel resort itself. A day and evening at one of the many pools does the trick. A bonus of actually staying at
the resort at Disney is that you have Extra Magic Hours available to you and your family at all of the parks. Some are in the morning and some after regular close time hours. These are hours that the park either opens early or stays open late specifically for those staying in a Disney resort hotel. There are significantly less people in the parks at these times and you are able to ride your favorite rides or see your favorite sights without lines or crowds. Two of our favorite dining experiences were the Crystal palace in the Magic Kingdom where the characters come and greet you at your table and pose for pictures. It’s an amazing buffet so you just keep eating until you’re stuffed. The second favorite is the French restaurant in Epcot where our bill totaled over $200 and all we has to do was sign our name and say thanks. Gourmet food for a signature, that’s what I call a dream. The kids loved the “Yeti ride” in Animal Kingdom, Space Mountain in Magic
Kingdom and the Tower of Terror at Hollywood Studios. We all loved Soarin’ at Epcot and where most people are lucky to ride once we were able to ride 4 different times over our stay. We frequented the Haunted Mansion and were even privileged to go in the middle of the night during Extra Magic hours which is an entirely new experience. Talk about creepy. Kiley loved our room at the resort, the food, and the “Yeti” ride was her favorite. I don’t think she actually finished
one meal there was so much food. Shad was most impressed by the food. His favorite restaurant was the buffet in Africa at Animal Kingdom with its assortment of new and unique foods. As a growing teenage boy, the food was key. He says what he loved most was just spending time together as a family. Maddi loved the Crystal palace buffet and the Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor in magic Kingdom. For Jon and I, being able to earn a dream trip like this for our kids was the best part. It’s all about the memories. Jon and Heather Groves

Congrats again to Jon and Heather for earning this FREE trip, you deserved it.

I remember meeting Ed for the 1st time when we were buying our house.  He was the inspector that came to check the house out for us.  Today we are great friends with him and Tina.  They are a great couple and very powerful in a leadership role.  They earned this trip by doing the work, Beth and I were so excited for them to go on it.

Here is a Summary of the Trip and what it felt like to take a free 7 day trip:

 
 
Our family recently returned from our 6 for 6 trip and our overall feeling was “awesome”! Keep in mind that our family had NEVER taken a weeks vacation. We had always snuck in a couple of fun days with a work trip here or there or taken a long weekend, but never gone 7 days without working. So, to say the least, we were pumped!

We chose to go to Disney World after some debate of the cruise. It ended up being the perfect choice for us. The travel agent that called us was very friendly and helpful and made many helpful suggestions that made it even better. We were able to get a 7 day stay at the Pop Century Resort on the Disney property, with tickets to all the Disney Parks, a bunch of discount coupons, a family meal plan, and air travel for our allowance.
 
The week was amazing! We had great weather (it was in the 70’s all week), went to every park, including a night at Downtown Disney, and had a day that we stayed at the resort and relaxed by the pool most of the day. Everyone had a favorite ride or park or show but we were all in agreement that the best part of the week was truly spending the whole entire week together. My best memory was that at one point or another, I got to spend quality time and hold hands with both of my kids and my wife and really re-engage with all of them. It truly made us see that being free is achievable for us and that our taste of freedom makes us want to run harder to qualify for the next trip and earn our freedom.
 
We want to thank Steve & Beth  Morgan for being our  mentors and friends and for introducing us to this fabulous business! We also want to thank all the other Band of Brothers for their support and example.  We are truly blessed to be where we are and would encourage everyone to run faster the chase their dreams and earn this trip. It will be LIFE changing!
 
Beth and I have so much fun talking to all of the trip qualifiers after they get back, we love to hear about all of the dreams come true.
 
What trip are you gonna earn?
 
thanks for reading,
