Are Your Comments Welcome?

Do you have something substantial to say or are you spamming the blogs that welcome your comments? It takes time to build a site that people take the time to read. Why your comments are never posted on the site? Hmmmmmm
you may not have anything I think others want to read when they come to my site. Some of us take great pride on sharing our tips and tricks if you post spam you should get slammed. This is not the way to get traffic to your business and I would never do business with you. Your first impression is something you cannot do over. Be proud of your opinion have the courage to stand behind you comments. Dropping a link is one thing taking advantage is another. Don’t spam!

The world doesn’t need it and those that read the comments do want it.  Time is one thing we don’t get back and you rob everyone when you leave spam. Like commercials that break in on the best parts of the movie we don’t want it. So again Thanks, to those of you that take the time to read the post and comment seriously about what you read.
We want to be validated that what we do is making a difference.
If you have nothing to say, stay away from the comment tab.

Next time open a discussion on the topic or leave a complement. Mom all ways told me if you don’t have something good to say leave it alone. I read all my comments and find it interesting that people want to use my site as their advertisement instead of asking for help to set up their own site. Marketers that do credible work are all ways will to share their knowledge with you. It is not that hard to get started and as you learn you will find more than just advice you may find a friend.

I hope you comment on this post, I do it in good faith and would really like to know what you think. D

Is It Worth Your Time

It is our time. We live in a country that people are free to make choices. The one choice we have is to vote on the Laws and those who enforce them on the highest level. I feel this is a privilege and that comes with responsibility to keep this freedom for us and for our children.

So when I was chosen to do jury duty, I could not understand why I felt like I didn’t want to go. Yes, I had 100 excuses why I didn’t want to go. No reason not to and now that the boys are older every excuse I had did not seem as important and I thought that it would be setting an example that for them and some of my friends that can’t be bothered. I thought what’s so bad about it and why was I called so many times and others weren’t? The fact is that depending where you live the pool for jurors is slim so you can get called over and over again. If you serve your time on a jury you can turn it down for three years. Then your name is put back on the list.

People who are able to serve are expected to serve one week or less every three years. So what is the big deal? I found the worst part is waiting to be called for the selection process. Once selected to enter the court, you are asked the same questions as everyone else. You can tell the judge and the lawyers your answer in privet if you don’t want anyone to hear maintaining your privacy. The questions are usually if you or anyone in your family has been convicted of a crime and if it would affect your choice to follow the law as it is written.

If you are luck, like I was you get picked for the jury. Lucky because you’re not waiting anymore and it becomes interesting. You hear the charges and then opening statement from both sides. You don’t discuss the case with anyone until the judge reads and explain the law to you. Then you go to the jury room to deliberate. Everyone must agree on an outcome even if that is to disagree.

The process is really not bad even though you have to do a lot of waiting and your life at home or work is put on hold. They should give you a pager that way you could still work at home or in an office. I am glad that I went through this and will probably do it again. I feel that we should be held accountable when we break the law especially when you hurt someone. I know the burden is put on the court to prove that the person on trail is the one in fact that has committed the crime. The facts are proven by the process the choices that we make good bad or indifferent and if you follow the law and how it is explained it becomes a clear choice. Guilty, innocent or undecided when you come back into the courtroom the decisions made will affect you as much as the person held accountable for their actions.

The big deal is that they have to send 500 letters to get 200 jurors her where I live and in some large cities they have to send 3,000 letters to get the same amount. We what to live safe and worry free so I think before you say you can’t consider that your freedom or your children’s freedom could be at stake. If you give your leaders the power to do this on their own who will hold them accountable for the choices they make. Men and women give their lives every day to protect our freedom the least I can do is protect the judicial system by serving. Is it worth your time?

Start Your Business on the Net

What you decide to market, will decide what you are all about. Pick a product or service to market. I have some that may interest you; the value is in the product and the training that the company has to offer. The timing is always right to join a million dollar company that gives you the tools you need at little or no cost to start a business.
The amount it cost you in dollars is minimal to your pocket, but the time it takes to start earning is up to you. Companies that are making millions using small business to promoting, selling and recruit are going to supply you with all the tools you need to succeed. There are many ways and many products to choose from. The better you are at representing the company, the more money you will make and the more valuable you become to your business. You can start without a product if you have built a brand of your own. Your brand is the value your business brings to others and gives them a reason to share it with others. Now are you willing to move forward?
Great, I have worked for years with these companies. I feel that they hold my interest and do business in an ethical way. They have training in place that support the top ways you can learn, earn and start your Internet business on the right track.
Here are some companies that have what it takes to get you started a niche you might be interested in. They are not out for just themselves they know the value of the people who help them bring their product and services to the world and are willing to pay you highly for the brand and the people that qualify.

These I recommend:

  • The Qivana Company is new multimillion dollar company it is in the business of sharing products that support your health and wealth. They have developed great products with great training in place. A team of high earners leading you to success. Qivana is ready to show you how their product can change the way we look at the product we put in our bodies and just as important the production and the science behind what they offer. Qivana is a company that uses science and is on the cutting edge of healthier choices to keep you in good health.
  •  Free Life also a company that has great organic product with scientific research to back up the Goji Berry and how it can improve your health and well being. Free Life has a training program that is easy to follow and has stood the test of time. They dedicate the company and products to change lives for the better. Their superior training and support maybe just what you are looking for.
  • Essant’e World Wide is another company that has organic products and experts that decide it was time to make a better line of products and offer them up to the world. This is one company that is also on the cutting edge of science and healthy preventive care. The training is as great as the products and with a support team to help you along the way you will find a great opportunity here.

Okay that covers Consultants, Reps and Independent Business Owners, in the niches that I am interested in. I hope this helps you in some way and if these are companies you like I will help you get started and if not, you have to finding companies and products that you are interested in. These companies work hand in hand with you to represent the products, the company and they make a point of supporting and practicing being green. This is important to me and it may be important to you as well. If what you put in your body helps you feel better, you will want to tell everyone, so they can feel better too. You can maintain your health, go green and share this to create your business.

These companies all have the great systems in place they give you the tools you need including a website, support, webinar and great products. You do have to put a small amount up in the beginning and there is a site fee or product order to full fill. These are very small amounts to pay for great products that support our health and wealth not to mention the free training and excellent support.
Building a business on the Internet is easy when you have the tools, but most important thing is that you are going to have to work hard at it every day just like you would open doors to a business at the mall. The difference is the world is your mall and you are in control of how well you do and what business choices you make will show everyone who you are and that you are here to say!

Marketing Weight Loss As Your Home Business

Weight loss and business have a lot in common. You tell yourself when you are in doubt; you can’t do this. Who cares about what others think and what gives them the right to judge? This is some of the crap we feed ourselves as we put on the pounds or avoid getting starting at owning your business. We stop looking in full length mirrors knowing you still look good from the neck up and your unemployment hasn’t run out yet. It is also what you think when others put you down for marketing on- line when you don’t make money when you start out.

We think about others judging us and assuming we know what they think. Truth is that no one really cares. You would think your spouse should care, but he or she doesn’t notice. My husband and children don’t have more than one thought at a time and it usually is about them. My health and wealth is my responsibility. My responsibility is to myself and my family. Change the thought change the person from the inside out.

When you see an old friend and they are so glad to see you, they ask about everything except your weight. They are never interested in hearing about the marketing business and they are your friend so they will let you ramble on just don’t throw your pitch at them. They will ask if they want more information. The only one that can make you feel bad about yourself is you. Why beat yourself up on what others may think of you. If you don’t look at yourself in a full length mirror you are the only one that can change it. Don’t be afraid of what you see and you might decide to do something about. Wouldn’t you rather have walked away feeling the pleasure of the visit, feeling comfortable in your own skin and confident in who you are. You are a marketer so offering them a product that you know will help them solve a problem.

I’m fifty-one, I look at myself everyday in a full length mirror, I try to change the things I need work on. Every day I am improving, every day I learn something new about myself and my business. I know what my friends and family think of me. As you get older things that matter change for all of us and everyone’s need are different. Some of us want to age gracefully and others will fight it tooth and nail. Then there are those of us who want to take charge of our wealth and build our own business but are afraid to get started. The fact is you have to do what’s best for you. Take a good long look at yourself from top to bottom, if what you see is working for you, great. If not change it!

You can improve, if you really want to. There are companies that can sell you health in a bottle and have it delivered to your front door. The best part of these companies is the products; they let the science back up the products and the testimony by pleased customers who have found the answers that they are looking for. The opportunities with these companies are great if you are will to work for your future. They supply you with a web site, training by the top earners in the company and compensation plans to support you. Now you are on your way to creating a business.

So many people are looking for products that support their weight loss efforts. I work directly with some of these companies. These companies are great; each has a weight loss program different from the other, they all are great tools to help you with your weight loss efforts, I know that when you find something that you like, you want to share it with everyone you come in contact with. So get paid for your recommendations. There are so many people looking for away to start a home business and companies that put your health first.

I am a marketer and I can tell you this it does not matter what product you use to help support your weight loss. First you must check with your doctor and run the product information by them. Then you must stop making excuses, weight loss and marketing both take a lot of work and your choice to join the marketing community is not something you should do if your heart is not in it. The choices you make in business have to come from the knowledge you gain and the training you apply. Remember if you want it bad enough you will use these products and the weight loss programs as a tool to gain success. You know that there is no magic pill for weight loss and there is no business that becomes successful without working hard at it. Good Luck with both your weight loss and your business choices.

Green Is Respecting The World

Aware of our effects on the world is at the for front of every one’s minds today. The world is going green like it or not. It’s changing for the better and people are aware of how they want to live in it. Taking pride in the products and the companies you represent is your business. Having a business that is branded green says it matters what foot print you leave on the earth.

Green is respecting the world by what you put on it and inside it. It is the air we all breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat the things we put on and in our bodies. Finding ways to change things we did wrong and now those we know better not to do it again.

What are you doing in your business?

The businesses that are green wear the brand with pride. As a green representative you attract a customer base that are looking for the best value in products and services that their money will buy. These are the customers that have decided to make a stand on how they want to live and what environment they leave the generations to come. The traffic in this niche is endless. As more of your customers find the value in this the more they will want to share it with someone they know will benefit from what you are offering.

Take a look in the product you use and the foods you eat. What do you recommend to others? Can you say I live green? Living green is more than recycling and eating organic.

 Do you support companies that are doing what they can to be environmentally friendly?

Working with companies that are green is not only good for the environment but they are good for you to. The companies that are green have the highest standard in the way they do business and the people that represent them. You bring traffic to them and they supply you with the tools and products to keep everyone happy.

How do I design my business and support green?

Check the people you do business with. If you have worked with them for a length of time you will know. There are companies out there like I said, wear the green proudly. Getting the products and services are easy, but when it comes to business timing is everything. Research the companies that you want to do business with. New companies are qualifying people to represent them in the market place by the thousands and they are environmentally friendly based companies.

You may not like it but the word is going green with or without you. So why not brand your business around the companies that are proving that they are green and worth your time and energy. Looking for ways to improve your health, wealth and over all life is what most of us want. The beauty of marketing these products is you get the benefit of improving the business profile with a green brand and the people you are around are going to benefit on the change the world is embracing. Qualifying people for your company is one of the keys to getting the best out of these changes.

Finding products that you love whether it is electricity, recycled products, energy saving products or vitamins there are enough green product and companies out there that you can represent but do you qualify to represent them? Brand yourself and your business by practicing a green life style.

Your Brand is you

Now you are branding yourself and ready to launch your business on the internet.You want to be creditable, you want others to see you as a treasure with endless value. Everyone that receives your newsletter, sales letter or reads your blog is there for value. Your reputation it is your brand and it is fragile.

The Leader: The person with the answers.

  • What problem can you solve for these people?
  • Can you put yourself in there shoes?
  • How can you bring more value to their business?

Your brand is your personality, your brand is you. How the world sees you is your opportunity to show off how much you know about your niche.  You are the one with the solutions and that will set you apart from others, you are in the position that you are looking for.Show it off!

Here are some important things you should remember:

  • Design is not your brand. Yet it can reflect parts of your personality. How you dress up and go out is the image you want the world to see.
  • Advertising is not your brand it is world’s perception of how we present ourselves and the products we want to be seen or heard. How you act when you are out.
  • Public Relations is not your brand it is getting people to verify that you deliver on what you have promised in a positive way adding credibility to you.
  • Collateral. Collateral is not your brand. It’s function is to add interest and information to those who have decided to check you out.
  • Concept  is not your brand. A great concept can get someone to talk to you as a salesperson or click onto your link. Examples:  YouTube to do your blogging, a great sales letter, banner or add. Keeping it simple( takes a licking and…) you got the idea. Good concepts surprise, great concepts hold attention, Effective concepts are very specific, and very simplistic, about what they want to achieve.

So now that you can see your brand is fragile it reminds me of the saying “you can dress um up but you can’t take em out.” No one will show interest in you if you spam them with ads that are product related, if you want people to be attracted to you and what you have to offer remember this, people do business with the people they like and trust, not with someone who is just posting ads with no value.

As you are branding yourself come up with a design, advertising, public relations that show off your collateral in a winning well formatted concept. My mother always would say if you are hanging out with the wrong crowd it will only get you in trouble, people will see you as a troublemaker even if you are not. As you can see that branding is very important to who you attract to your business. I will only partner with people that deliver on how they brand themselves. If you deliver on your brand it is good decision for me to do business with you it can only make my brand stronger.

Focused on the idea that the new you is ready to deliver, your content for a specific audiences, and then developed campaigns on that concept with personality and style, your style. Put your twist on delivering what your customers (leads) want.

Today we are all trying to get on the fast tract to earning there are no short cuts if you want to be around for along time and successful while you are here. Dress up and go out into the world as a leader and others will follow you. The greatest complement is when someone want to be like you. We cannot be that person we look up to, we can emulate the charter that we respect and that we were drawn to.

Top companies work for years to establish a brand, today we can do it in such a short time on the internet. Social media is launching people to high positions and it is your responsibility to deliver on every thing that you promise. Do your homework, know your company and any products that you are backing, you don’t want to be with the wrong crowd when it comes to credibility. I back the products that I use or that I believe in. These people have prove to me that they can deliver and they will recommend the people who help them along the way to their success. This gave me the option to work with the best educated minds in the industry.

A recommendation is your ticket on the road to success and more then one is the difference between coach and owning your own jet. You should collect them as your treasures for they are priceless and one of a kind. You are the topic and highly regarded in your niche.

Branding is not as hard as we think, we have already started on the right track just don’t forget who you are and be authentic. Stay true to yourself and let your personality shine.
