Advice For The Marriage and The Business~ *Communication*

Image
As most of you know, I do have a Lingerie and Romance Accessories Business.  One of the reasons that I started a business in the romance industry is because a happy, healthy and thriving marriage is very important to me.  I figure if you're gonna go through the whole marriage ceremony and repeat those wonderful marriage vows, then why not put in the work to actually live out those vows?  Especially if you have children!  That's right, I said "the work", because that's exactly what it is and don't let anybody tell you different.  We don't live in fairytale land, you have to actually work at a great marriage.  Take a look at the image of the couple above.  Have you ever felt like that?  Believe it or not there are people living out that image daily in their marriage.  It should not be this way.  I shared a quote on facebook today that I thought was so real.  It's by Scott Gardner, "If the marriage ain't happy, ain't nobody happy."  An…

Whether you work at a corner of the dining room table, in the spare bedroom or in your own private office, staying organized can pose one of your biggest challenges as an entrepreneur. Many of us let filing and organizing go during busy times and think we'll deal with everything when we "have time." But beware of the clutter trap; it can truly take on a life of its own. A messy desk and chaotic filing system siphons off your time, energy, focus and productivity. Here are some tips for getting organized and staying that way in your home office.


Attack That Pile of "Stuff"

If you're starting out with an intimidating pile of stuff on and around your desk, don't despair. Take a deep breath and devote a small amount of time -- half an hour -- daily to sifting through it. This makes the job more manageable, and if you stick to the discipline of doing a little each day, you WILL reach t…

The Power of Positive Affirmations

Image

Affirmations are positive statements that describe a desired situation, and which are repeated many times, in order to impress the subconscious mind and trigger it into positive action. In order to ensure the effectiveness of the affirmations, they have to be repeated with attention, conviction, interest and desire.


Imagine that you are swimming with your friends in a swimming pool. They swim fifteen rounds, something you have never done before, and desiring to win the respect of your friends, you want to show them that you can make it too. You start swimming, and at the same time keep repeating in your mind, "I can do it, I can do it...". You keep thinking and believing that you are going to complete the fifteen rounds. What are you actually doing? You are repeating positive affirmations.


More than often, people repeat in their minds negative words and statements concerning the situations and events in their lives, and consequently bring upon themselves undesirable si…

It's been the talk of the town in the MLM and Network Marketing Industry.  That's right!  Some of you may have already heard about it...V-mail.  Video e-mail.
What is V-mail you say?  Well, I'm glad you asked.  A couple of weeks ago a Facebook friend of mine, fellow Network Marketer and Health Guru, Lakeidra Capers, told me about this great new product and opportunity that is changing the game.  I must say, I was a little skeptical.  I said, "How is this different from any other Network Marketing Company?" And, "Why is this any different from Youtube?"  I agreed to go through with the presentation and I'm glad I did, because it totally changed my perspective on Branding.  When I say "Branding" I'm saying "Branding You and Your Business".  In the network marketing industry it is A Must that you brand yourself and stand out from the crowd.  You cannot be just another salesperson!  Note: A great way to brand yourself, no matter w…
