DON’T OPEN THIS BLOG POST¬†UNLESS YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THE BEST BUSINESS SYSTEM EVER TO LEVERAGE FOR BUILDING YOUR OWN LIFESTYLE FREEDOM You’ve been hearing from me about the amazing business system that I’ve been leveraging for the past few months. Well, at least some of you have! Those of you who have been reading my blog posts, opening my emails. You might have seen my YouTube videos of my first “big commission” month, $1694+ so far this month. The thing is, really, if I can do it, anyone can. First off, I started almost 9 months ago from […]

Entrepreneurs, 5 Ways To Increase Your Email Conversions

Hey there, Today I want to encourage my entrepreneur readers who are doing or considering email marketing with a few suggestions to help you increase your email conversions. One of the most important concepts I learned in Montego Bay is to always include a “CTA”, a Call To Action. In effect, we ask people who are interested in learning more to “raise their hand” and let us know that they are and why they think they will be a good fit with us. These individuals are our most engaged audience. They are letting us know that they are interested. Second, […]

Entrepreneurs, Have Fun, Help Others, And Create Wealth

Hey there, Just sharing some joy now! Got the phone call I’ve been waiting for this morning from Nate Rio in Malaysia, congratulating me on my first “big” commission. I knew that this business system was the real deal, not a get rich quick scheme, but a solid business system to be leveraged. So, I got to work with enthusiasm and persistence and in the past few months started seeing some real results, the kind where you get emails telling you that commissions have been paid into your eWallet. Even so, we all enjoy proof, don’t we? Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cm6-KaCMI8M   […]

More Time With The People I Love, Encore Career

Hi there, I spent most of my adult life trading my time for money, lots and lots of it, in fact, years and years of it! As a Cardiovascular Registered Nurse with a couple of stints of management over the 30 years that I worked in the hospital, hours were long and the work absorbing and demanding. As a single parent, there was no real end to the responsibility and the actual tasks to be accomplished. Vacations were few and far between and had to be planned about 6 months in advance. Getting coverage with expertise in the specialty areas […]

Entrepreneur Living ~ Learning Is Fun

Hey there, I have to confess that I cannot think of any time that I have had as much fun learning as in the Diamond Mastermind in Montego Bay. First off, we learned from some real masters there! When I say masters, I mean entrepreneur superstars so real that they are delighted to share information with others about what is working for them in their businesses right now! Also, we met lots of fellow entrepreneurs and we all had a wonderful time there beyond time in the conference room actively learning, while meeting and greeting, filming ourselves and each other, […]

Seek First To Understand, Accept – Then Reinvent

Seek First To Understand, Accept – Then Reinvent Listen (Listening is SO important) Accept what is! (Okay, you don’t have to love it, but it really does help if you accept what is actually happening!) Don’t take things personally! (Most of the time, it really is NOT personal at all and taking it personally keeps us locked into a negative feedback loop that helps no one, especially¬†us.) It is really up to us to figure out who we are at our core and accept that, and then figure out how to get that message out there to the people who […]

Ten Rules For Success From A Superstar

So, I was listening to a Gary Vee YouTube talk. I enjoy him. He’s obviously VERY smart and kind of a wise guy too, and he’s funny. His language is a little over the top for me, so I’ll try to distill this without all the “F” words he uses when he talks and get the meat of the ideas for you. Gary Vaynerchuk’s 10 rules for success: Bet on your strengths and don’t bother at all about what you are not good at. Focus on what you are good at and put all of your time, effort, energy, and […]

Persistence And Little Baby Steps

Persistence And Little Tiny Baby Steps Sometimes all the persistence one can muster is to take a few little tiny baby steps at the close of a day that has seemed very long in many ways.
