Tough Job

View from the office, 1/15/12
Mystery shopping has taken me across the country plenty of times, but the view doesn't get much better than this.  Across the bridge, in the distance, is the Atlantic coast.  Incidentally, the hotel we check into today is on that coast, not merely yards from it as the one we are checking out of this morning.

I first posted about high end mystery shopping in June, 2010.  Be sure to read that page before considering getting into this line of work.

This week I am visiting 5 luxury properties in the Fort Lauderdale and Miami area.  The weather could be better as the highs are only in the 70s (okay, okay...I'll stop!).  Don't be fooled - this certainly entails a degree of effort that keeps me from calling this a vacation.  Still, I'm eating great food, sleeping in $300+ hotel rooms, and getting paid to report my observations.  It's enough to make me want to pinch myself.

I don't see myself ever working for "the man" again.
