Once Abused.. Can’t just Look the other way..

Once again, another sleepless night. Seems to be happening more frequently again..

You see, the way I can understand it for me is when you’ve endured abuse and live through it and gotten out of it, like I have because I fought back and I chose a different path. At a very young age I made that decision that it wasn’t going to define me.. and I won that battle, but where I struggle is seeing it all around me.. Abuse, it takes on so many roles: emotional, verbal, sexual, financial, elder, power.. I’m that person who will speak up and speak out all the time, the disheartening and let’s say exhausting part is watching so many Just Look the other way as if it’s becoming the Normalcy in the world we live in today.

Have we become that nation that so many will take the time to record the abuse rather then step in and stop it.

How many times have I heard, “it’s none of our business” or “it’s not your place” when in Turn I’m saying “It’s not right” or “what if that was you, wouldn’t you want help?”

So for social acceptance am I just supposed to sit down now and except that this is the way it is? If only just one person could feel in my heart and see in my head what I feel and see, I wouldn’t feel so alone..

Somewhere out there someplace there is someone that gets what I’m saying. Someone that is going through what I’m going through. Someone, Someplace, Somewhere… I know I’m not alone in this battle.

Is age just a number?

You know what the age-old saying is? “Age is just a number” or is it? I will tell you that age when your body is yelling at you because you have not done what it needs you to do feels that age is much more than a number. It is a feeling. It’s a feeling so deeply rooted that until you can sit back and think about how you feel now versus how your felt them you can’t completely understand.

As a very unfit and unhealthy person, the older I got the louder my body was screaming at me. Simple things like 2 beers made me so sick I would spend the night and entire next day recovering from what seemed to be a hangover but realizing now it was a sugar high and then crash as my pancreas was not producing the right amounts of insulin for my grossly obese body I had encased my being in.

The stress I was causing my body with the poor diet and 335 plus lbs I was carrying around was a contributor to the Stage 3 hypertension the Dr stated I had.. and in fact her words and let me quote her were ” You are immanent for a heart attack or stroke”  Not words one wants to hear at 49 years old. And to prove age is not a number I was a walking talking 70 plus year old at the time.. I just didn’t realize it. Those words changed my life. I went to my car and cried in the privacy of a hospital parking lot. I was talking to myself, ( to know me, you would know I do that a lot) and my questions to me was, Did God really put me through hell as a Child and teen to guide me to an area of survival to end up this way? The answer was clear, and it was “No, He Didn’t” so at that moment I made the choice to get on a path of emotional and Physical health.

In a previous post in my blog entitled My Journey I outline how I have done and how I am still striving for the weight-loss goal. But today I want to talk about that to some dreaded number. I will be 52 in May and I wouldn’t want to be any other age. I feel better today then I did at 30, my energy is better than most around me at the same age and even younger. I guess not I can say I understand that age is just a number. I look younger because I put in my body what it needs.. That is the message I want to send. Everything that goes into your mouth is a source of food or poison for your body and your body will react accordingly. There is a sense of accountability if you look at it that way. I know, not fun to actually ask yourself this before every bite. “Will my body like or dislike this?” “Is this providing a benefit or a non benefit to my body’s health?” It is not an easy thing to do and even all I have been through I have those bad days, but it is OK. Get back on track and remind yourself to be conscious of your choice. Yes I will have that cake tonight so I will eat something higher in protein and lower in fat and sugars for lunch.. Plan around the inevitable bad days. Sometimes they just can not be avoided.

It took me 49 year to get unhealthy to the point of nearly no return. Expect it to take time, Months, Years to get to a point of health and that is OK. Every good decision puts you just that much closer to these decisions becoming a habit to where you crave them .

I’m looking forward to celebrating my birthday in May.. Yes it is number 52 and it’s ok. Because when you feel good, AGE IS JUST A NUMBER .. Be Blessed Everyone ❤

Smart Financial Planning For Retirement ~ Ask Your Self One Question.. Are You Prepared?

No matter what stage you are in your life, planning your retirement is never an easy task.
Money is a necessary commodity that enables you to achieve your life goals, whatever they may be. Whether you want to buy a new car or save up for retirement, planning beforehand is the key. You have many dreams and wishes, but have to have a solid action plan behind them to convert it into something special.
So, next time you’re thinking of treating yourself to a $1000 watch, you need to think about how it may potentially affect your retirement plan and budget. Remember, good saving habits can help keep you out of financial troubles after you retire.
If you’ve never thought about setting some plan once retirement is near, this is the right time to do so! Here are a few key tips that you should be really looking at.
1 – Have A Written Retirement Plan In Place

You can’t achieve the formula to a successful retirement without having a solid plan in place, and the plan cannot be just in your head, or in bits and pieces here and there, it needs to be written down. A written retirement plan with goals provides the road map for every step you need to take.
Remember, financial success is a choice. It is an outcome of many small decisions you make every day. With no frame of action or a long-term plan in place, your life would like a boat without a rudder: just twirling in circles with no sense of direction whatsoever!
2 – Never Be Intimidated By Financial Jargon

It’s hard to avoid. There is jargon everywhere in the money world. When you are reading about or discussing your finances with a consultant, you will come across complicated financial terms and phrases. If a concept is not clear to you, you should just go ahead and ask the consultant to explain it to you. If they tell you to avoid debt and save 15% of your salary every month, you need to ask them how it might work with your current expenses. You can even go over your monthly expenses with them and see where you are losing money.
3 – Live Within Your Means
Try not to max out your credit card. Before you buy something, ask yourself if you really need it and if you can live without it. Rewarding yourself with something you like every once in a while is not a bad idea, but you need to keep your expenses in control if you want to save money every month.
4 – Have A Budget
Budgeting helps cut down on extravagant spending. Allocate reasonable amounts to spending on each item and limit extra expenditure. Keep a target amount you want to save monthly and distribute expenses accordingly. Maintaining efficient tracking of all outflows and inflow is essential in this regard.
5 – Keep A Record For Every Transaction
Maintain an expenses diary or an excel sheet to tabulate what you’ve spent so far. It helps you discover amazing things you’ve never noticed in your spending style.
6 – Set Realistic Goals
Keeping realistic targets help ensure that they are attainable. No one can possibly save up to $8,000 monthly out of an annual income of $40,000.
7 – Repay Debt
Being debt free in today’s leveraged economy is the ultimate gateway to financial freedom. Prioritize your repayments accordingly to estimate the required amount of time to repay all that you owe.
8 – Invest
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle while saving can be a gruesome task. Find out investment opportunities by staying in tune with the happenings of the financial world. Get to know when an existing company is going public; empirically IPO shares quadruple in value in a week’s time.
9 – Seek Financial Advice
Pay attention to the financial advice you are getting, no matter how insignificant it may be. A little help goes a long way. Make sure to carry out a credential check of your financial advisor. Check for his disciplinary record by some financial regulatory body. Always, ask to talk to other clients. If your advisor doesn’t approve of this, probably its best to walk away.
Bonus Tip

Don’t fall in the trap of fake performance promises. Numerous financial advisors boast about their previous returns. Past performance, as they say, is no guarantee for future gains just like the economic random walk theory when it comes to stock trading.

My thoughts this Morning..

I am laying here still in bed.. Waking up to a smart phone with a large screen is a occupational hazard as you can start your work day before your feet even hit the floor.. That’s how my morning started about 7am.

I send out a message to a beautiful young lady that I met through networking in another business. That business didn’t last for either of us but we have stayed connected like so many do via Facebook. Anyway, I responded to a question she had placed on my Facebook wall under my post about my new Jeunesse business. In our conversation I find out that her father, someone I know she was desperately close to had passed away. My heart hurt for her as I know how much pain she must be enduring.. Yet she is saying to me she needs to learn the ropes and make money from home as she has her two babies and her sisters baby that need to be cared for as her sister and brother in law work full time. Now I know all of these precious babies are all under the age of four years old. And the youngest is just a few months old so yes, she already has her hands full. But what I do know, is with this business it can be done. As I wrapped up our conversation I found myself thinking about some of the women who have recently joined my business.

2015/01/img_5301-0.jpg
Pure Strength..

My first business partner has cancer.. Yet she is the most positive women I know. And my biggest producer working her little tail off. All I have to say to the naysayers, women and men for that matter.. You think you have a reason you can’t succeed. This women will make you realize “It’s time you suck it up, Buttercup!”

My next beautiful lady that joined my business is in her upper 50’s and recently had to take custody of not one but four of her grand children.. Ages ranging from 3 to 11. Talk about starting over. Jeez, where does she find the energy? So for those Mom’s that think, I have kids I can’t do a home based business right now, message me.. I will put you in contact with her so she can talk to you about her day..

And then there is another.. Who when I met her as I was dropping off samples so she could launch her business so proudly told me she was in recovery. She used to be a addict. I wanted to at that very moment reach out and hug her but I thought she might think I was a freak. You see my sister in my early years was and still is today a addict. I would have given anything to hear those worlds come out of her mouth but I never did and I know now.. I never will.

So, in this business it is known that people “fish for the whales”. The ones that will bring their whole school of fishes over with them in one swift movement taking them to the top in zero to 60 seconds flat. But me:: I couldn’t be more proud to be working with these three women amongst all the other women and men that are on our team. Because I know with the heart and soul our team possess’ Anything is possible.

I Have A Dream.. I have a Goal.. This is My Vow..

Wisdom

 

My Dream .. About Network Marketing.. My Goal in an Industry I love..

That dream is to instill into an industry that so many distrust.. a level of truth, honesty and respect. One that is free of the Hype and over exaggeration.. One that encompass’s the best of the best.. of people who work from their Heart. People full of passion and grace.. People that only want what is best for others.. by putting those first before themselves.. Now I always want people to understand that there is no free ride.. Success comes from work.. Nothing is Free.. As with any other path to the “End” Keeping the end in Mind.. Working to get to where you want to be..

That is my Dream, Because this industry has given me relationships that have changed me.. Some that have warmed my heart and made me feel full of blessings, and a few that have made me learn more about the person I never want to be. Even One that in so many ways, Saved me..

So those blessings and the financial reward because if you work.. you get paid and no I haven’t made millions.. But I have Definately Made more then most in their first few yearts.. but what I have received in relationships is more than money can buy.. With that said, I will continue the Quest to achieve my dream.. I know there is a better awakening for what a Networker can do to change an industry so many distrust.. Together we can make it a phenomenal place, to change lives and live for the better..

Only 6 % of the world’s population will work in network marketing. It’s the same 6 % that take companies up to the top, move causing their former company to fall some..yet that same move then allows another company to move towards the top. It’s a precarious cycle..

Let’s just say my method of building a phenomenal organization is finding the gems that are in the 94 %
