I signed a contract with a travel club on Saturday

I signed a contract with a travel club on Saturday 1/14/2017. I want to cancel this contract. In the contract it says that I have 3 days from the date of the contract to cancel. They say I must write a letter of my wish to cancel the contract and get a return receipt. My problem is tha Sunday, the day after the signing is not a business day, and the following Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. day and the post office is not open. The offices of this company aren't open until Wednesday, 1/18/17. Should I just send the letter, or should I go there in person. Does Sunday or Martin Luther King Jr da count as one of those 3 days that I am given for the time limit to cancel this contract?JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I live in Florida. Nothing to date has been filed or reported that I know of. the charge of $3000 is still pending on my credit card. If I could, I would simply get this charge cancelled off the card = but the bank isn't even open today i.e. Martin Luther King, Jr. day.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I can think of. Thank you.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. For years, I have

Thanks for taking the time to read this.For years, I have worked in an industry that has 2 main types of sales reps. Inside sales reps who work as employees of an organization, and outside agents who work for themselves as an independent contractor.I was lucky enough to have spent some years doing inside sales, some years recruiting outside agents, and now I work for myself as an outside agent.This has allowed me to learn all angles of this industry. And I would now like to start a side business doing consulting. My goal is to consult inside sales reps of other organizations, and guide them into going out on their own as an outside agent. I would be able to guide them to the right companies, based on their particular book of business, and help them get started on their own. With my experience, I would also negotiate their contract on their behalf. I would be a neutral party, not working for any certain organization, just guiding, consulting, and negotiating on behalf of the sales person.Now here is where I have worry about legalities. My idea to drum up business would be to create a flyer, and have flyers spread across the parking lot of these large organizations that hoard inside sales reps, who are successful enough to be out on their own. The organization hides the outside agent info from their employees, in hopes to keep them on board.Are there any laws about targeting a specific company with flyers, in hopes to steer their employees away from said company? I would not be recruiting them to come work for me. Just encouraging them to go out on their own, and call me for the guidance they need to do so. Would this be illegal in any way? Could these companies sue me for targeting their employees?Please let me know your thoughts! I look forward to speaking. Thank you!
