“On a lighter note” may infer that I’m about to share something cute or funny. ūüôā

Although always my goal,  my actual style of writing generally leans more toward the edge of sarcasm or a dry humor at best.

A little darker,¬† a little less cheerful than most advertising Guru’s advise.

Today we live in a world that I believe requires a bit of reality,¬† not a constant spew of faked excitement, hyped urgency and misleading results…

When the heaviness of the current world gets to me,  I have to step back,  take a breath and review the basics.

Reconnect with God, His Nature, and His will for my life.

Get proper rest,  (good sleep and relaxing activities)

Eat nutritious food,  and supplement as needed with proven nutritional enhancers.

Limit my “Screen time”¬† including¬† TV,¬† and all forms of social media.

Take time to get back in touch with the people who are important to me,  not customers,  but true friends and family that bring joy to my own personal life.


I find that after just a couple of days of the above,  I can jump back on the hamster wheel,   start encouraging team members,  promoting my products and sharing the entrepreneurial lifestyle  that I believe will eventually lead us all to a less stressful existence.


When you have a minute,¬† take a look at one of those businesses that will actually help with all of the steps to “Stepping back”¬† that I mentioned.

Completely Natural, Organic Products,  including natural aids for sleep, stress and overall health improvement.

A FREE to Earn Business that includes a personalized back office and website to share.

Any Recommendations?

Not informative, just inquisitive¬† today…

I have a wonderful, all natural Anti-Aging hair and skin product for men and women

but the company prefers not to use the thousands of email marketing lists that I normally use to promote my products.

It’s preference is Social Media, ¬† but I prefer to keep my business and social separate.

What advertising source to you find to be affordable but effective?

Month End Panic

It’s July 31st, ¬† mid morning, and the panic of “Month End” is starting to hit.

All of my business friends are scrambling for that last sale,¬† last new partner, last little monthly goal to take them to the next level,¬† or allow¬† them to survive at the level they’re on.

My email is literally blowing up with offers from people¬† that I haven’t spoken to in months.

“Month end”¬† is very stressful,¬† even for the most successful of¬† business owners.

One more bottle of shampoo will get you over that $300 a month goal.

One more new business partner will promote you to Executive Vice President.

One more bottle of Hemp Extract and a new Free affiliate partner will keep you active and earn you a Free bottle for yourself.

Or for some,¬† at least one more sale or you may not be able to continue doing business in August ūüė¶

What the hell are we all doing?

What would happen if we all just checked out for that last day or so of the month?

What if we kept that “fresh month” attitude that we have on the 1st, ¬† all the way until say about the 28th, ¬† then just chillaxed?

Would everything crash?    Would anybody die?

Would online sales and marketing as we know it come to an end?


The reality is,¬† (my favorite statement, used in almost all of my posts?) ¬† the last day of the month,¬† “month end” as we refer to it, ¬† would come and go, ¬† we would wake up on the first day of the next month and see a true picture of our previous months efforts.

Good?  Bad?   Could be worse?

But TRUE results.

It’s my belief that the pressure applied by “uplines” to “downlines” near the month are one of the quickest ways to send a new partner packing.

The pressure of not measuring up in those first few months can be overwhelming to a person that is new to the day to day stresses of online sales and marketing.

The stress of trying to earn a large amount of money quickly in this business is not realistic and completely harmful to everyone involved.

What if we all used the last couple of days of the month to BREATHE,¬† and reflect and spend some time with the family that we’ve probably neglected just a little the past month.

Would our monthly totals suffer?          I doubt it.

I believe that resetting our priorities and taking a day or so to refocus at the end of each month would serve our businesses better than putting out that¬† MONTH END PANIC aura that we’re now in the habit of.

Today’s the day, ¬† what are you¬† going to do?

Call the team, remind them that they “only have until midnight!”

Buy something from yourself to appear to have met that monthly sales goal?

Or put down the phone,  close up the laptop and take your kid to the park.

Drink some good coffee,  maybe catch a movie.

Just forget “Month End” and CHILLAX! ¬† ¬†¬† ūüôā






healthy, relax


Sleep in.

Sit on the patio and have a great cup of coffee.

Listen to the birds sing,   watch the dog play in the yard.

Enjoy conversation with the one you love.

Make a healthy breakfast.

Enjoy more good conversation.

Attend the church of your choice.

Worship and fellowship with your friends and family.

After a little lunch,  go home and take a great nap.

Forget about work, forget about the world, forget you have any cares at all.

Sunday,  just one day.

Relax,  Refresh, Refuel,

Have a nice day…
