Owning Your Own Business

Owning your own business has so many advantages. You can work the hours that you want. You can write your own paycheck instead of having someone else pay you what they think you are worth. You can take your break and lunch when you want.

Of course there are a lot of difficulties as well. You may have to consider hiring staff, paying the rent or lease on the building that your business is in. Then there is the electric and water, payroll and accountant.. Ohh, let's not forget about office supplies and of course inventory. If you are online, chances are you will be shipping as well.

Working hard and being consistent is of course the key factor. There may be times when you go without because of all of the other expenses. It may even get to a point where you have a hard time paying your employees, keeping the electric on, or scraping change up to ship an order to someone.

You can own your own business that is LEGIT and YOURS. You write your own paycheck. Guess what? My home business is transferable...Meaning, I will pass my business down to my children. And I will actually be able to retire and walk away knowing my kids are secure.

I don't Sell, Carry Inventory or Take Orders. This is not an MLM, where the first person in, wins. This is not Pampered Chef, Mary Kay, Avon, Watkins or Amway...

I open up Wholesale Membership Accounts. This is Direct Consumer Shopping at it's best. Very similar to BJ'S, Costcos and Sams Club....Except better. Deeper Discounts, No Bulk Shopping, Access to over 70 other Retail Stores ( Sears, Kohl's, Target, Dell, Overstock ) to name a few, which provide discounts as well.

Want help in finding a lower mortgage rate? We have that. Need Auto Insurance/House Insurance? We have that. How about a little help with Lowering your cost for prescriptions? We have that. As well as Internet, Long Distance, Cell Phone plans and so much more. Our members actually get "Thank You" checks in the mail from the company just for shopping.

Can you see why I love my business? I am helping people all over save money. And with this economy the way it is, who doesn't want to save even more? Again, it's not just the savings that you get...It's all the other little perks that are included, the little thank you checks that the customers receive and all the other services that are available to them.

When someone contacts me, I escort them Directly to the factory where they can see ALL we have to offer. And why we stand apart from BJ's, Sams Club and Costcos. Yes, I am making a difference for families in a time when they need it the most.

Ohh, maybe I should mention that my business also received the "Torch" award from the Better Business Bureau. How's that for credentials?

Side Effects Of Too Much

One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University study.
Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen..
Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.
Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?
(No kidding, all of the above is true...)
Of course, too much water may have strange side effects.

What Do I Need Goals For?

You hear a lot about setting goals, writing down your goals and keeping track of your goals. But what is the sense in it, you may ask?

Goals keep you focused on whatever it is that you desire to achieve. It's good to start out with a few little baby goals....Like planning a to pay off a credit card by a certain time. Or taking a vacation by a certain time. By doing this, setting a deadline, give you the time-line to achieve a certain task by a certain time....

It's ok if you don't meet your deadline.... If you fall short. If that happens, you reset your goals and start over. But I am a firm believer that without setting goals to begin with, you would have fallen much shorter than you would have if you had set goals. Setting goals keep you on pace in achieving what it is you desire.

Whatever it is that you want to achieve, write it down on paper and know the steps that you need to take in order to reach your deadline. Look at your goal list everyday... Compare it to how close you are to it in reality. You can them determine if you are right on track or if you need to work a little harder....

Remember, write it down... It's NOT enough to know in your mind.

Come On, Now

I really don't think there is much to say...
Let's see, I know, "You knew that someone was taking a picture of you".... Or, "He just slipped out of your hands"....

Makes me wonder....How will you treat him when he's actually grown up? Unacceptable!

I Can Help!

Do you have a dream? A goal? Do you long for more than you have? Do you have a desire to be more than you already are?

What if I could give you the vehicle to get you where you want to be? Would you try? Or would you just scroll on by, not thinking twice?

Our children grow up with a ton of dreams and goals.... But as adults, we tend to just want to get by. What if you were given the right opportunity to make things better in your household? In your income? Do you really desire it enough to take a look?

If so, I may be able to help.... It does not hurt or cost anything to take a look.

To My Followers

I just wanted to thank my followers for coming back and visiting me.... Whether you are a subscriber, or a occasional visitor, I appreciate you coming by.

I try to keep my blog very versatile.... Since, that is the kind of person I am. I am more than a mom.... I am a friend, a sister, a daughter, a grand-daughter and so much more. So I try to add a mixture of all of it....

Again, thank you for coming by... Tell me what you like, what you don't like... And I will see what I can do.
I'm not going to vacuum 'til Sears makes one you can ride on.
As a senior citizen was driving down the freeway, his car phone rang. Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him, ' Herman , I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong way on Interstate 77. Please be careful!' 'Hell,' said Herman , 'It's not just one car. It's hundreds of them!'
Three sisters ages 92, 94 and 96 live in a house together... One night the 96 year old draws a bath. She puts her foot in and pauses. She yells to the other sisters, 'Was I getting in or out of the bath?' The 94 year old yells back, 'I don't know. I'll come up and see.' She starts up the stairs and pauses 'Was I going up the stairs or down?' The 92 year old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea listening to her sisters. She shakes her head and says, 'I sure hope I never get that forgetful, knock on wood.' She then yells, 'I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who's at the door.'

A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better.

David was a man of excellence. The Bible tells us that David played his harp “skillfully.” He didn’t just play it, he played it with excellence. When he slung the stone that defeated Goliath, it wasn’t an accident. It wasn’t just a lucky break. David had practiced the slingshot year after year out in the shepherd’s fields. He was extremely talented with that slingshot. Some experts say he could hit a small bull’s eye more than 100 feet away!

In the same way, if we want to see God’s hand of promotion, we need to live excellently. In this day and age, if you’re not growing, then you’re at a disadvantage. If you’re at the same skill level this year as you were five years ago, then you are falling behind. It’s time to step it up a notch. Whatever you are doing, do it with all your might! Don’t get complacent. Keep growing; keep learning; keep improving. As you do your best to live excellently, God will bless the fruit of your labor. He’ll pour out His “super” on your natural and cause you to rise up higher into the life of victory He has in store for you!

Showing Appreciation

As those that keep up with me know, I am a single mom with two kids. I do the occasional dating thing....But I will NOT get involved deeply with someone because I am running my own business and don't want to get caught up in the "Can't wait to see you" or Can't wait to talk to you again" theme. I know I am prioritizing way differently than most would. But, I have to do things this way. My way!

I'm writing a post about showing appreciation where it is due..... I have moved on as well as my ex...And, even though I may not agree with certain situations involving my son and the "girlfriend" I do have to be honest and sit back and take notice.....

So many times couples break up and it's bitter.... And when there are children involved, it seems to make the moving on even harder. Unless of course, the break up was done in a nasty way like it was in my case.

It's funny... I was listening to WMMS today... The Maxwell Show.... I hate it, but it was on and I was listening... There was a man on the radio saying how he had his girlfriend living with him and found out she was cheating on him... He wanted to know how to get rid of her....

I am amazed at how shallow men are... If there is a woman living with you, in your house, and all the bills are in your name... and you find out she is cheating,.... Then ask her to leave!!! What woman would stay if the man she is with, asks her to leave? No one I know. Ask me to leave, and I am gone...But this guy called in asking for advice.... There is no advice....Ask her to leave and if she does not, then slap her with an eviction notice...... SIMPLE!!!

So when times passes and you find your ex happy.... With another woman......Succeeding in life....Achieving what he desires....Let him or her know that you are happy for them. And even if you disagree with some of the way things are handled between the new girlfriend or boyfriend and your children. ....Sit back and take notice....

When you learn to open your heart... Admit that someone else IS the match for your ex that you were not.....That your ex is happy....And the new girlfriend or boyfriend don't mean to do certain things or say certain things that may upset your children....You have to swallow your pride, pick up the phone and thank them for being important in your exes life and your childrens life.

My ex and I are exes for a reason... We did not work... I don't want him hurt.... Nor my son. If I found out that my ex was being mistreated, I would feel hurt, sad and want to try to help... But really, there is nothing I could do..... But when children are involved, I have every right to step in and speak.

I hope to come up with the courage to pick the phone up and call the girlfriend and let her know that I appreciate the touch she has made on my son....And my daughter really cares about her and she needs to know that as well..... It's up to me to let her know that I think she is doing an ok job in impressing my children....and making my ex happy.... That's all I could ask for.

Choose Your Words Carefully

As a woman running my own business, I had to learn something that is essential. "Blocking Out Negativity". You know those comments such as "You are not gonna make it" or "Cindy, It's not going to work" or my most favorite is the "Why don't you go get a real job".....

I've also come to realize that it's only their own thoughts and beliefs that would make a person say such things. If they don't think it would work for them, then they don't think it's going to work for you. You need to block out the negativity...That Simple!

I believe that's a skill that children need to learn at a young age as well....Too many times there are people that say hurtful things to a child. Whether you are arguing with your child or a statement just rolls off the tongue, you need to realize when something hurtful was said and then apologize for saying so.

I don't believe in taking personal issues or concerns that a child or even an adult may have about themselves and then use it in any manner against them. Let's take a persons weight for example.

If you have a few extra pounds, the chances are that you don't feel as good about yourself as you could. Now, when this is the case of a child and a comment is made about their weight...Whether it's jokingly or you meant to say it....You need to stop and realize that you just hurt someones feelings. Do you know what is going through their thoughts? Do you realize the hurt you just added to their heart? How a comment can slowly destroy their self confidence....Make them feel LESS..... Just because they will become an adult one day does not mean that the hurtful comments will just disappear... They will linger in the back of their minds and stay in their heart, and even grow right along with them.

Makes me wonder how a parent would feel if your child made a hurtful comment about your weight or even your partners weight? I bet most parents would approach the child and point out how they said something that was hurtful....Some may even make the child apologize to the adult. Hmmm... What a concept... I think the adult needs to apologize to the child as well.
