basics, happiness, healthy, relax


“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.

happiness, relax, women at home

What if?

Found a new app,   YOUPER,   that literally has me thinking.

Auto response text conversations that respond based on the words you use to explain your feelings, mood etc.

It has been very reflective for me this weekend.

“What If”¬† is one of the responses¬† that really had me realizing that I look for the bad in too many things.

This week’s goal,¬† just be.

Be positive,

Be Calm,

Be OK.

Money Matters, relax, time management


I recently spent 2 months counting down the days until my much awaited, short but sweet, 5 day vacation.

Literally a full year had passed since my previous “time off to do nothing” reward.

I was amped up mentally, ready to woo hoo! It up.

Be a little crazy, not check my phone, or emails or website stats or ANYTHING to do with my businesses or day job.

With the exception of one nice Ebay sale, my inactivity went as planned.

I spent some much needed alone time with my hubby, relaxing by the pool, and enjoying some nice meals out.

I got to have some girl’s time with my sister in law, feeding the casino slots and competing for who could act the coolest when winning even the tiniest of bonuses ūüôā

I didn’t feel compelled to constantly keep an eye on my online sites, post perky motivational sayings on my Facebook page, nor comment positive remarks on 50 people I barely know’s biz pages.

All in all, a very “restful” time.

As all vacations go, it was over way too soon, Packed up, headed home and back to reality.

So where am I going with this?

Here I am, only 4 days after a great little break- again feeling exhausted, overwhelmed and completely dry of any motivation.


Why do I wake up some days and literally run to the computer, coffee in hand and with a mind full of excited promotional bs, ready to send thousands of emails, Post banners and links on hundreds of sites.

Ready to Reach out to the generous donations that come in daily to my  50/50 site .

But other times,¬† I literally just cannot…

When I (like any middle aged crazy lady) google my symptoms, low energy, lack of interest, inability to focus and overall feeling of exhaustion for no good reason… I always end up on. “Depression”.

Why would I be depressed? I”m only 58, I have a sweet husband whom I adore, 3 grown children, all with their own lives.

I work a full time “day job” and have several little “Work at Home” businesses that keep me busy, entertained and in a nice little bit of cash flow.

The M word,  (Menopause) often pops up,  normal with my age and gender-   but I think I should be passed that at this point too.

My own mind wants to continually go back to a wonderful training from Brendon Burchard,   about how making decisions causes stress.

Apparently,¬† every single item that your mind sees and “decides” on, deciding to stop, read, linger, share, or pass-¬† be it a social media post,¬† an email advertisement, a note from a friend, a text message or even an advertisement billboard on the freeway, ¬† ALL of these and hundreds of other visuals that your mind processes every day requires you to make a decision.

Every decision causes a little bit of stress until it’s resolved in your brain.

It’s an amazing (overwhelming, but amazing) concept if you stop and realize what your little head is doing all dang day!

What if we just “decided” to take a little visual break every day,¬† maybe just a half hour or so,¬† and either close our eyes completely, or choose to look at something beautiful.

Nature,¬† Water, Flowers, Art, ¬†¬† just anything that is NOT related to whatever business or project you’re working on.

Take time to NOT make decisions, choices, or even judgments for a few minutes.

If any of you actually read this until the end,   Please comment on what YOUR choice of

relaxing visual would be.

I really don’t expect any comments,¬† only likes and¬† invites-¬† because we are all so caught up in this process of promoting our businesses.

But I personally¬† will be visualizing,¬† and relaxing to this…

Month End Panic

box business celebrate celebration
Photo by on

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…
