4 Surprising Things That Are Holding You Back From Wealth
By Dr. Steve G. Jones, creator of Total Money Magnetism [Link this to >> https://www.totalmoneymagnetism.com/?affiliate=cksniche&type=video
Does it sometimes feel like other people in your life just have it easy?
You see them getting great jobs and promotions, earning big money, or not having to work hard for what they get… while you are constantly STRUGGLING?
Do you sometimes think to yourself…
‘Why can’t I have what THEY have? Is there something I should have done differently?’
Well, let me tell you right now it’s not that they’re ‘better than you’.
It’s not that they’re smarter than you, luckier than you, or they deserve it more.
As a hypnotherapist and self-made millionaire, I see clients every day who are struggling with one (or more) of 4 things… which make it almost impossible to get the wealth and the life you want.
#1: Fear of failure
‘But what if I FAIL?’ ‘What if I’m not GOOD enough?’ ‘What will I LOSE?’
‘What will people think of me?’
We are creatures of habit, and our subconscious minds are great at keeping us in the same routines or behavior patterns.
Because there is a certain safety about doing the same things we’ve done before.
Basically, it’s a survival mechanism, which causes us to feel nervous, uncomfortable, or fearful when we even think about doing something different.
And this goes double when it comes to big things like making a career change, starting a business, or moving somewhere new.
We fear what will happen if we FAIL, and our minds are great at coming up with all sorts of inventive negative scenarios.
But the important thing to remember is: If you continue to do exactly the same things, you will continue to get exactly the same results.
Creating wealth doesn’t have to be ‘hard’. But it does involve stepping out of your comfort zone.
#2: Fear of success
‘But what will happen if I get rich?’ ‘What will happen if I get that promotion?’ ‘What will happen if I buy that bigger house?’
‘Will people treat me differently?’
‘Will I become someone ELSE?’
Yes, fear of success is also a very real thing.
Again, this comes down to our natural resistance to change.
For instance, although you may WANT to land that dream job, there is a tiny part of your mind that is stressing out about what will come with that new job…
…a new office, new responsibilities, new people to report to, and higher expectations.
And, underneath it all, you may not feel that you are truly deserving of achieving this kind of success and becoming wealthy, especially if others in your life are struggling.
When in actual fact, you are just as worthy and deserving as anyone else!
#3: You’re suffering from the toxic cash-repelling ‘Scarcity Virus’…
‘I’m just not that lucky’ ‘I don’t have what it takes’ ‘There isn’t enough money to go around’
If you’re frustrated with where things are at in your life and feeling helpless about your finances right now, chances are you are suffering from the toxic, cash-repelling ‘Scarcity Virus’.
Basically, you have some serious inner hang-ups about money and what it means to be rich… and whether you actually have what it takes to BE rich.
In fact, the majority of the population suffers from this same problem.
You might think you’d love to be wealthy, land that dreams job, or live that luxurious lifestyle, but inside your mind is telling you something different.
Because on some level, you’ve learned that “money is BAD”. Or, that you’re not “good enough” to ever be rich.
Maybe you or your family have struggled with money in the past, and therefore you’ve come to associate wealth with feelings like fear, jealously, or resentment.
And even as an adult, these feelings have remained rooted within you and can be extremely hard to shake.
#4: You’ve been following the wrong footsteps all along
‘But my father told me that getting rich is about hard work and saving’ ‘The more hours I work, the closer I’ll get to success’
The fourth crucial thing I see holding people back from wealth is that they have been listening to advise from the wrong people their whole lives.
Instead of looking for successful mentors who can teach them the real steps to success, they follow the guidance of people who may actually be struggling themselves.
For instance, parents, siblings, or friends who provide well-meaning yet unhelpful comments such as, “You just have to work HARDER”.
As I can personally testify to, building your income really isn’t about working double the number of hours and putting in double the effort.
It’s about tuning your mind into what really WORKS.
Are You Ready To Shape Your Brain Into The Brain Of A MILLIONAIRE?
Sometimes the cash-repelling mindsets and behaviors above are so ingrained that it can be difficult to overcome them. They can sabotage you without even realizing it.
However, I’ve created a method that will allow you to effortlessly overcome these mental blocks and start manifesting wealth like a self-made millionaire (in just a few minutes per day!)

5 Reasons Why You Are Worthy Of Wealth
By Dr. Steve G. Jones, creator of Total Money Magnetism [Link this to >> https://www.totalmoneymagnetism.com/?affiliate=cksniche&type=video
This might sound a little strange… but do you truly believe that you DESERVE wealth?
Sometimes the number one thing holding people back from manifesting wealth is that deep in their subconscious minds, they don’t really believe that they are worthy of a financially free life.
There are many reasons why someone may feel that they aren’t worthy of being wealthy, and we’ll get to these soon.
But what you need to know right now is that believing that you are deserving of a life of abundance is VITAL to being able to manifest all of the money and success you want.
Because attracting wealth doesn’t come from living in fear of what you don’t want – being ‘poor’ and struggling – it comes from a place of self-love, acceptance, and belief.
So that’s why today, I want to share with you five reasons why you ARE worthy and deserving of wealth and show you how you can break free from the false beliefs that are holding you back right now…
1. There is an abundance of money in the Universe just waiting for you to let it in.
First of all, there is no shortage of money in this world. There really isn’t.
Money is abundant, and there is plenty available for all who reach for it, including you.
Does this idea sound a little crazy to you right now?
If so, that’s OK. But it may mean that you are operating from a ‘scarcity mentality right now.
A scarcity mindset tells you that there is a lack of money to go around and a lack of opportunities to make money.
And when you believe that money is limited, you can start to compare yourself to others and find reasons why you ‘fall short’ – why you don’t deserve to have as much as others.
You feel anxious and helpless about your finances, and as a result, you never move forward.
On the other hand, is the empowering mindset of abundance.
When you train your brain to develop an abundant mindset, you will discover that there are ALWAYS new opportunities to make money and that you deserve to have wealth just as much as everyone else.
You will be free from the fear and doubt that previously kept you stuck in a cycle of struggle, and open to a future of financial freedom.
Do you have a ‘scarcity brain’ or a ‘rich brain’?

2. Money has no prerequisites. You are already enough.
One of the things about having a scarcity mindset is believing that you have to be a certain kind of person to be wealthy.
For example, that you need to be top-of-the-class smart, have a career in dentistry or law, be a ‘trust-fund baby’, or a workaholic that never has time for fun.
The truth is, wealth has no ‘prerequisites’ – ANYONE can become wealthy, no matter what their background.
And whether or not you realize it yet, you have your own special strengths and talents that have the potential to bring great wealth into your life!
In fact, you may not believe it right now but I guarantee that there is an opportunity waiting for you to turn one of your passions into a source of income… you just need to recognize it.
3. You are not limited by your past.
It doesn’t matter what has happened in your past, your age, or how ‘bad’ you may have been with money… you can still manifest a future of wealth and abundance!
It happened to me. At the lowest point in my life, I was $80,000 in credit card debt, literally living in my office, and on the brink of a nervous breakdown. I just couldn’t see a way out of it.
But now, I can happily say that I am a multi, multi-millionaire, free of all debt, and every day of my life is more amazing than I ever dreamed it could be.
How did I get from that point to this point? And, how can you transform your own life in the same way?
Well, that is a story too long for this article. But if you’re interested in learning how I went from being thousands in debt to a cash millionaire in just a few years, then you can check out my story here. >> https://www.totalmoneymagnetism.com/?affiliate=cksniche&type=video
4. Everyone deserves the chance to live a rich, happy life.
Does that family down the road living in that 2-story mansion and driving late-model BMWs really deserve wealth more than you do?
You, just as much as anyone, deserve the chance to live your richest, happiest life.
So if money troubles are preventing you from living that life right now - a life where you are free to live the way you want - then it’s time to look at your relationship with money and how it is affecting the energy you are producing.
If you are feeling unhappy, frustrated, or fearful about your finances, unfortunately, these emotions will be causing you to manifest only more of what you DON’T want - more doubt, more fear, and more scarcity.
In this situation, trying to manifest wealth is like trying to plant a ‘money tree’ in poisoned soil… it simply won’t grow.
But if you can cultivate a mindset of abundance and self-love, this will be the foundation from which your financial success can flourish.
5. By manifesting wealth in your own life, you can help to enrich the lives of others.
One of the great things about having money is that you can use it to help others. Giving back to help others in need and spreading the message of abundance is incredibly rewarding.
One way you can do this is by donating money or resources to charity.
I personally support a number of charities - particularly the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society as my Mom died of leukemia and the American Lung Association as my Dad died of emphysema.
Another way to do this is by helping your children to develop an abundant mindset and educating them about managing money so that they too can enjoy an abundant future.
Personally, through my work as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and wealth coach, I try to help as many people as I can to free their minds from barriers to wealth and experience the financial freedom they deserve.
You are worthy of wealth. You are deserving of wealth. And now, you just need to start believing it, so that you can start manifesting all of the wealth you deserve!
Is It Time For YOUR Body Makeover?
I am losing my own personal little war with belly fat.
This has been going on for a while now, but like all the minor annoyances in my life, I try to remain optimistic that a solution will shortly be in hand.
It isn't working. I am starting to sense that something larger is going on here and that I am not fully in control of my body any longer. Rather, it is in control of me and is dragging me in a direction I do not want to go.
Of course, I am hardly alone in this. Millions of people are losing their own little war with their body. It is an epidemic of the modern age. Perhaps it is THE epidemic, and people will look back on the 21st century with a smirk and say "What the heck were those people thinking? They willfully destroyed their bodies and cut 20 years off their life span. Couldn't they see what was happening to them?"
You'd be surprised, but I think it's safe to say that most people DON'T see what is happening to them until it is too late and some major health crisis sets in on the back of having been too fat for too long. Part of the problem is that people simply do not recognize the health risk of carrying around an extra 20 or 30 pounds of blubber on their midsection.
It is a BIG mistake, this ignorance, or short-sightedness. Being overweight has consequences that go way beyond loss of breath, lower back pain, and varicose veins in the legs. Excess fat, and particularly the stubborn fat carried in the midsection area, does more than sit there looking unsightly. It affects the proper functioning of your internal organs, and even sets them up for failure.
So if you are carrying around more weight on your midsection than you know now is good for you, what can you do about it? What is the BEST way to launch your own little battle to fight the war going on inside you between that unhealthy fat and your vital organs?
How about get yourself a body makeover? That is what Carolyn Hansen is suggesting. She has just set up her fat loss membership program that she calls The No Excuses Body Makeover Program.
Instead of giving you an ebook and letting you head off to do battle on your own, her goal is to provide you with an environment that helps you establish the correct mindset to win your war, and then she holds you accountable for your actions. If your battle strategies are doomed to failure, you'll discover it soon enough and she (and the other members in her membership program) will encourage you to come up with a plan that WILL work for you.
You'll get all the tools needed to formulate your approach to making over your body, and you will get the encouragement to put your plan into action.
So if you have decided this is a war that you HAVE to win, and it is time to say goodbye to that apple-shaped midsection that is causing you to cover all the mirrors in your home, be sure to check out Carolyn's No Excuses Body Makeover program. She'll help you tool up, plan your makeover attack, and back you with the reinforcements you need to achieve your desired body weight goal.

Thanks for Reading
Today we are going to discuss the common mistakes that marketers make when advertising online. By understanding these mistakes and avoiding them, I hope you can improve your success rate in any form of online advertising.
Without further ado, here is the first mistake:
1. Bark Up The Wrong Tree
I once heard a story that goes like this:
Someone once asked a notorious bank robber why he only robbed banks. The robber looked a little surprised and simply answered, ‘That’s where the money is.’
This story becomes popular in the teaching of success philosophy because that’s the essence of success in doing anything. The same principle applies to online advertising. Before you start to advertise, the first question you need to ask is, ‘which online sites do my prospects frequent?’. Whatever the answer is, your challenge is to find ways to reach out to those sites and channel the traffic to your own site.
One common thing I hear from advertisers is they think their product is for everybody. If you think that your product is for everybody and you simply advertise everywhere to get traffic, chances are most of your advertising effort may be wasted.
2. Not Having A Bait
Most advertisers simply use a hook to catch fish instead of using bait. They have a sales page that tries to sell something and they expect people to buy. This will work if the traffic has been ‘presold’. But if the traffic arrives at the sales page without learning about your product from somewhere else, the chance of making a sale is slim. If you have a mechanism to convert them into your list, you may have a second chance. Else, you will miss them forever.
A bait system is different in the sense that the objective is not in the sales. The aim is to reach out to people who can be your potential buyer by giving them part of your product free (not just giving away a freebie to build list, but to give away part of your product to let them have an experience with what you are selling). Say if you are selling a software, you can give away a ‘lite’ version of the software.
The concept of a bait system is very simple. Basically there are only 2 groups of people, let’s call them to group A and group B. Group A are those who are not interested in what you are offering. Group B are those who are interested. In Group B, there are 2 more sub-groups, Group B1 and B2. Group B1 are those who are ready to pay, and Group B2 are those who are not ready to pay. Most advertisers only target Group B1. In a bait system, your target is Group B. Once you have people in Group B in your net, sales is almost guaranteed, provided you deliver true value.
3. Too technical
Everyone knows it is important to prepare a good ad, but most people are too obsessed with the technical details. One typical example is they focus too much on the ‘features’ rather than the ‘benefits’.
You may ask, what’s the difference?
Features are the language for techies whereas benefits are the language for layman. For example, if you are selling a download manager, one of the features of your product may be ‘to be able to split files into parts and download them at the same time’. If you just leave it as it is, it may not make much impact. But if you translate that feature into its benefit, that may mean that your software can ‘download files 4 times faster’. ‘Downloading files 4 times faster’ is a benefit that will appeal to normal users, as compared to telling them about the technical aspect of it.
Another example is if you are selling a course on how to create a WordPress blog, instead of advertising it as ‘how to create a WordPress blog in 1 week’, you should say ‘how to create a money-making blog in 1 week’, or if you have a testimonial to back you up, you can even say ‘how to create a blog that makes $1,337 in its first week, starting from scratch!’.
Just remember, it’s the benefits that will appeal to people, not the technical details or the process of how to do it.
4. Lack Of Following Up
Last but not least, many marketers focus on generating traffic but fail to follow up with the traffic generated. When I say ‘follow up’, I don’t just mean converting the traffic into sales. That part of following up is important, but it’s not the only follow up you need to do. Another follow up that is equally important is encouraging the traffic to promote you.
As I always said, advertising is like a fire starter. You need it to start a fire, but if you want the fire to sustain and grow big, you’ll need to tactfully position lots of charcoal around it. That ‘charcoal’ is your follow-up system that encourages your existing traffic to bring in referrals.
If you are anything like me, you find yourself constantly wading through a sea of email on a daily basis.
Everything from work-related emails to personal emails, funny emails, nonsense emails was probably waiting for you in your email inbox this morning.
Some of these emails may have come from newsletters you are subscribed to, blogs you follow and businesses whose lists you are on. And if you are like me, you found yourself quickly putting emails into three categories: Emails you deleted without taking a second look. Emails you opened right away to at least take a quick glance at.
Emails you kept because you want to see what it’s about but just didn’t have time for at the moment. Some days, you might actually go through and quickly unsubscribe to emails you find annoying or that simply no longer apply to you.
Guess what. Your email marketing subscribers are going through the same process on their end. They are quickly making decisions about the emails they receive, including yours, and they are taking action.
How can you, as a small business owner, make sure that your readers stay subscribed to your emails, open your emails and click through your links to read more? Even better … how can you make sure that your readers share your emails and newsletters with others and bring even more subscribers to your list? The key to this sort of success is to become a highly effective email marketer.
Before we go any further, let’s cleat that when I say “email marketer” I do not mean that you become one of those sleazy spam spewing monsters that loads email inboxes with sleazy slimy offers of little to no value.
What I mean is that you learn and apply tried and tested principles of successful email marketing that can take your email open rates and click-through rates through the roof. What I am going to share with you now is 16 Highly Effective Email Marketing Tips can help you get more from your email marketing.
Tip #1 Get Your Subscribers’ Permission First
Think about it. Of the emails you receive every day, when you get some email offer that you know you did not actually ask for, your first instinct is to delete the message, right? Make sure you are sending email messages to only those subscribers who have actually requested the information.
But when you get emails that you know you have asked for, you are more inclined to read them right away or to save them for future review. Your subscribers are the same way. Always make sure you get the permission of people to send them emails. Do not add people to your list without permission even if they are past customers or current ones. Direct them to your sign-up page or capture page so they can request your information for themselves.
Tip #2 Pay Attention To What Your Audience Wants
Be sure you actually do your homework before you send out emails You should regularly be using tools like Google alerts, conduct surveys, participate in online forums and keep an eye on your competitors’ sites to keep in touch with the latest trends. When you pay attention to and answer the questions your audience is asking, your message is simply more relevant.
This simply means your email marketing message is more likely to be opened.
Tip #3 Have a Specific Purpose
Never start writing an email marketing message without first deciding what it is you want to accomplish.
Why are you sending this email, to begin with? Are you wanting to deepen your relationship with your subscribers? Are you wanting to send your readers to a particular page on your web site or blog?
Are you wanting your readers to share the article with their associates? Are you wanting to make your readers an offer? Be absolutely clear on what you want to achieve before you even start writing your message. If your message is unclear, even if it gets opened, it is highly unlikely your readers will take any action at all, much less the action you want them to take.
Tip #4 Write To One Specific Person
Who is your ideal reader? Write your messages for that one ideal reader. You should know exactly who would be interested in hearing from you. You should also know who might not be a good fit.
Becoming this specific improves the chances of your message resonating with your target audience and your response rate can go through the roof. If you try to create a message so broad it won’t offend or target anyone, in particular, there is a big chance your message will appeal to no one.
Tip #5 Address One Person
Never start an email with “Hi, Friends” or “Hello, Everyone”. This makes your message look like mass spam.
Sure, you are writing to everyone on your big list. Every ready knows this but they still want to feel like you are speaking directly to them. Be sure to use the merge tokens in your email management program to automatically populate first names. Then, as you create your message, imagine writing it to that one ideal prospect that you want to do business with you.
Avoid group phrases like “As you all know” or “most you already realize that … ”
Tip #6 Stay Consistent
When people sign up to your list, they are basically letting you know they want to hear from you. They are placing their trust in you. Never take that for granted. Never send them content they didn’t ask for. Don’t email too much. Don’t send anything but promotional emails all the time. Being Consistent means fulfilling the promise you made to them. Remain consistent in your desire to be of service to your readers.
Tip #7 Create Subject Lines that Beg To Be Clicked
The first step to getting a click-through is to make sure your message gets read in the first place. The key is to create a subject line that makes your readers want to click on it just to find out what’s in the message.
Tip #8 Don’t Deceive Your Readers
Don’t you hate when you click an exciting subject line that captures your interest only to find out that the content doesn’t have anything to do with the subject? This technique is called “bait and switch” and if you do it, your subscribers will start removing themselves from your list very quickly. They feel tricked. You have violated their trust and they don’t want to read any more messages from you.
Make sure to give your readers what you promised in the subject line. If you want to use ultra-casual email subject lines such as ‘hey’ or ‘I forgot to tell you …” or ‘have you ever felt this way?”, give them content that is personal because this is what they expect. If you promise benefits or actionable tips in your subject line, then give them that. If you tell them that an offer is about to expire, then this is the information they expect and not a link to another offer.
When writing your subject lines, follow the 4U formula (Urgent, Unique, Ultra-specific and Useful) follow up on the promise for the continued trustworthy relationship.
Tip #9 Avoid Spammy Words and tricks.
You know those emails where people intentionally mask common spam words or just type use them. These are the messages that typically end up in your spam or junk folder, or they just don’t get through. Pay attention. If you do that same stuff, chances are that your messages are not going to get through.
Tip #10 Create Messages People WANT To Read
Remember that time you signed up to someone’s list, got a confirmation and welcome message and then … silence? Maybe you heard from them again a few weeks later but by then you had forgotten that you ever asked for the information.
Stay in touch with your subscribers on a regular basis. Send them your content as soon as they sign up. This builds your credibility with your readers and makes them more likely to want to hear from you again.
This is one of the great benefits of using an AutoResponder service. You can schedule several messages in advance and let the system send them out automatically. This helps keep your brand in front of your subscribers and helps build your reputation as a dependable resource.
Tip #11 Stay True To Your Brand
Your email message doesn’t have to be extremely fancy but should look and feel like your web site or blog. If you have a logo on your site, include the logo in your email marketing template. This helps you ready feel like they are dealing with someone who is professional and reliable.
Tip #12 Help Your Readers Reach a Goal
Every message you send should provide some sort of solution or access to a solution for your readers. Your goal should never be to simply demonstrate knowledge or show off writing skills. Focus on your readers’ needs and show them how you can help them get what they are looking for.
Tip #13 Keep Your Message Relevant
If your subscribers joined your list to learn more about gardening, don’t send them information about binary stock trading options. Keep your messages focused on the content that made your readers subscribe to your list in the first place.
Tip #14 Have a Clear Call To Action
Your message should have one clear goal and that message should include clear instructions. Your message should not be filled with a variety of options but should contain that one clear call to action, whether that is to watch a video, visit a blog post, take a survey, forward your message to their associates, etc… Give them one clear step to follow and make sure that step is easily found in your email marketing message.
Tip #15 Become a Detective
Be willing to experiment with your messages and always check your results. Measure your open rates and your click-through rates. This is how you find out what is working and what isn’t working for your email marketing. When you find something is working, keep doing it and never stop testing. Perfection is probably never going to happen but one of the keys to success is continuing to make improvements as you learn more.
Tip #16 Care About Your Readers
If you want to experience outrageous success in email marketing, find a way to let your readers know that you care about them. How can you make them smile? How can you help them solve a problem? How can you help them learn a new tip or trick? When your readers feel that you care for them, they are more likely to open and read your messages. The more that happens, the better your chances of success become.
This company knows about this. Not only that, but they’ve written a book to tell the rest of us how 8 Star, a remote software company, focuses on problems. Not on their problems, but on the ones of their clients.
Once they have those on the radar, they build products to help businesses remove friction and solve problems. Initially, a web design company, 8 Star, the creator of Basecamp, safety gears to develop web applications.
Let’s take a closer look at lessons learned from their recent book, Shape Up:
Stop Running in Circles and Ship Work That Matters. Even though the book is geared for product development teams, any team can learn from what they’ve learned at Basecamp.
that seems odd, doesn’t it? Actually this tactic is a way to stay focused. Too often businesses will get off track by flirting with a new project.
If it seems as though there might be a fit, put it on the table and have folks take a look at it.
After the details have been examined, a decision is made. If it’s NO, then that still may keep a project in the queue. The time is just not right for now. However, if it’s YES, then the team is stuck.
Saying YES takes away your freedom in the future and you’ll have to work on it. Regardless, building a team works when projects have a time limit.
Completed Projects in Six Weeks
Could it be? Don’t most projects take longer than six weeks? Not if you look at a portion of it. That’s what works. Your focus?
The deliverables that can be completed in six weeks. Most people can do anything for six weeks. They don’t lose momentum. They don’t lose their vision.
And if things don’t work out on that project and it comes to a standstill?
Not much time has been lost. It’s only for six weeks. Regardless, building a team works when everyone focuses on the finish line.
Cool Down In-between
The world has sped up. Everyone seems to be charging through their days at such a frenetic pace. Long hours lead to long days.
People become spent and then overspent. You can shape up the team by having a cool-down period in-between projects.
The project is done and behind you. It’ll soon be time to take on a new one. In-between, though, the team takes a break. Perhaps they’ll compile a list of lessons learned from the project recently completed.
Or maybe they’ll do some research to discover more that can be done. Regardless, building a team works when there’s time to chill between projects.
Stay on Track
Once a team moves toward the finish line, they may be lured away from the main path. Perhaps this would be a nice feature to add. Or maybe we should backtrack and try this instead. Nope.
This focused refresh recharges a team’s battery before they move on to the next project. Those on the team need to sort out the must-haves from the nice-to-haves.
That way they’ll stay on track and meet the deadlines. Regardless, building a team works when everyone focuses on the finish line.
Build Your Business
Think about what your team does and how you can build your business by shaping up. Perhaps one of these lessons learned is the boost you need. Do you and your team say yes too often?
Or do you find that the team works on projects way too long so that they go on and on and on? Might you all rush from one project to another with no break?
Focusing on one of these lessons may help to shape up your processes and maintain your business standards. There’s another way to shape up your business and build your subscriber base and your sales.

There will be tough times. There will be distractions. There will be setbacks. This is why you MUST train your mind to stay focused on your goals and the processes that lead to success. Without this step, nothing else will help you.
How do you spot someone with a mind trained for success? They aren’t complaining. They aren’t jumping from one program to another. They aren’t making excuses. They are attending webinars. They are reading personal development books. They are constantly learning and contributing.
I use free and paid traffic resources, advertising resources, traffic exchanges, social media, etc… to constantly build my list of prospects who are LOOKING FOR the kind of information I offer.
This is why I do not have to chase down friends and family. The people I talk to are people who WANT to know more and have requested information. A targeted prospect list is an incredibly valuable business asset and should never be overlooked. How do I build my list? All of my advertising and posts direct visitors to my capture page where they can request more information.
When they fill out the form, they are added to my list for follow up and they get the requested information. This happens 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
By the time I hear from them, they have typically seen my videos, read my information, and have a few questions. This makes it much easier to talk to them AND helps to disqualify those who are not serious.
This is a HUGE part of getting MLM results, no matter what business you are involved with.
When I write articles for my blogs, I will typically focus my content on how to solve a problem. The content may be about helping businesses use email marketing to grow, helping network marketing professionals learn how to generate online leads, and other related topics.
The articles are designed to answer questions and provide solutions. Most of the time, my articles will also include an option for visitors to request more information by filling out a form.
This takes us back to Step 2. Along the way, I get to meet new people, make new contacts, even make new friends and build my lists. This helps build credibility and good rapport. That leads to sales. Not everybody who reads my content wants to do business with me. But some do. And that is when the fun starts all over again!
Take the time to train your mind, build your lists, and create value in the market place. You will find that you can switch your focus and start getting MLM results in your business that will last for years to come.
As a web hits traffic reseller you can earn sizeable income by selling traffic from your web page to generate traffic to another website.
Some websites pay very good money per hit to redirector use pop-ups to generate hits.
Two very good services for this are:
You could easily take advantage of these services and generate extra monthly income from your high volume websites. Reselling your traffic does have a downside, it distracts users from your websites. You need to be sure to maintain user interest within your own web interests so your sales do not decrease.
If you notice, there is another bundling strategy that could be employed using Adsense, web hits resales, and search engine submissions. All three of these businesses rely very heavily on volume. You can build another profit pyramid utilizing an on-line travel agency as a base.
The travel agency, based on a brick-and-mortar concept like a club or association could provide a stable income through group affiliation and use. The search engine submission and search engine optimization service could form a less reliable income tier that could sizably contribute to the owner’s monthly budget.
The top layer again could be the random income base of Google Adsense and web hits resales. This random layer provides income coverage in a revenue spread that fluctuates wildly.
These layers of income can provide steady revenue streams that could easily replace your fulltime job.
The travel agency takes in chunks in the $100-$300 range, the search engine submission service will probably less frequently give your business portfolio bumps in the $30-$75 range, while the hits resale from a higher volume website and Google Adsense can form an excellent form of additional income for a web-based business.
A monthly profile for a successful marketer could look like the following:
Marketer ZOnline Travel Agency $4700
Search Engine Service & SEO $3800
Google and Hits Resales $1000
Income for the profile’s monthly total equal $9500. Marketers need to look at their overall strategies and employ a bundled strategy that takes advantage of those resources the marketer currently has available.
The profile above considers that the marketer has trafficked in abundance. The earlier profile was not focused on traffic but mostly on product concentration, development and creativity.
The reader must look inside himself/herself and ask what his /her greatest strengths are. The scenarios presented here are just a few possible scenarios. Bundling strategies are the core element in taking advantage of any traffic that enters your website.
Let’ stake a look at some activities that you can make money off of whenever a surfer enters your website.
A potential visitor could:
1. Buy a product
2. Click a link
3. Leave the website via another link
4. Enter a pop-up on your website to go to a new website
5. Download software
6. Complete an information form
7. Complete and apply for a loan or credit card 8. Plan a trip or vacation or some other activity
Every item listed above is an activity you can be paid for. Every activity can take place without your direct involvement.
Bundling these activities gives users more chances to make money for you. Close your eyes and think about it. I come to visit your website and I see the screen.
There are 15 links on your website. The links on the screen are exit and entry links to other websites. Every item on the screen is connected to make money for your business in some way.
This should be your goal. Your websites should be loaded with financial opportunities in much the same way that a farmer plants seeds in a field. Please remember the business you are building is asset rich.
Every dollar you invest today is potential profit tomorrow. It is imperative that you extract the maximum value of your business at all times. Your website generates traffic, the user clicks, product orders, and builds your contact list 24 hours per day.
It is imperative that the person who uses the internet as a source of income know the true value of internet resources. Search engine position and direct orders are only indicators.
A true businessman knows that success lies in the extracting of maximum value from all internet resources. For people who started on the internet years ago, it was not possible to be paid for incoming and outgoing traffic.
They remember an internet that was completely unregulated, unpoliced, unintelligent, non-dynamic and almost impotent. Today you can order a hot pizza via the web. The internet has changed, and it has become a gold mine.
Marketers need to be smarter and savvier to make money on the web. Everyone has heard of people who make $5.00 per day on Google. Do you want to be one of these people? We don’t. Bundled strategies take advantage of well-designed websites with layered revenue inlets.
It is clear that a well-designed website with moderate traffic is asset rich. It is your job as a marketer to get out there and extract that value.
If you put together these tools, in a smartly layered fashion, you can set up a scenario where checks come to you in the mail and your Paypal account fills up faster than an alcohol’s shot glass.
The items in this guide are a powerful toolset that creates many financial opportunities for you. It is our deepest hope that these tools when properly used will provide you with the success that they have afforded us for more than 7 years.
If you follow these suggestions not only will you make money while you sleep, your dreams will be filled with gold!
So you have finally stepped into the world of making money online. You too, like the others, have decided to start with the affiliate programs. Also, you must have heard that it's not a big deal to make good money with affiliate marketing, provided you choose the right programs and do some strategic planning while promoting your affiliate products. So far so good.
Whether you are promoting other people's products or promoting your own products - that doesn't matter because after all, it is nothing but your own business and your means to earn good money. So whichever be your case, I am sure you would not want to leave money on the table and invite others to steal your share of profit.
Even though the industry of affiliate marketing is pretty competitive but if you are cautious and are strategic in your marketing techniques then, it could be very profitable for you.
Take a close look at the industry, you will see that not everyone who gets into affiliate marketing is successful. People who are doing well leave no room for failure and take all security measures and understand its importance.
Yes! Security is one of the key factors in affiliate marketing. If you do not adopt proper security measures, then your business will be at high risk. One of the most important way to restore security is to protect your affiliate links. Do not take them for granted. A bit of carelessness on your part in regards to affiliate links may cost you a lot of dollars.
Do you know the long complicated links that you send to your prospective customers not only look convoluted but they can create a lot of problems too! If you send such an affiliate link to your customers, then the smart ones will definitely figure out that you are promoting someone else's product and they would rather visit the parent company. Also, if your link does not function then your customers have to type a really long URL into the browser, which will definitely put him or her off.
You could be a victim of even a worse situation. What if some devious Internet pirates steal your affiliate links and replace them with theirs. If they do that, then you get no commission at all.
Did I scare you off with all of the above possibilities? Well, that certainly wasn't my intention. I just wanted to open your eyes and state facts that actually happen in the world of the Internet. It happened with me until I came across ViralURL, that brought a revolution to my online ventures.
So, if you are not getting the desired results out of your affiliate marketing, don't lose hope. There's definitely a remedy to this problem and that is ViralURL

The idea of being mere passengers on a ship meant to sail to the farthest points does not appeal to people who like to put their destiny into their own hands. They have the desire of manoeuvring the ships themselves, of being able to be the ones to take it anywhere they want to. Being aboard a ship on its way to a particularly great destination is something each and every one of them dreams of, and the knowledge that they have the capacity to steer it themselves is what makes them actually want to.
Perhaps this is the reason why more and more people are succumbing to one of the most popular businesses around – affiliate marketing. It is because, in this business, there are no bosses to order the employees around. There are no deadlines to meet and no clutter of work do to. One only needs to be equipped with the tools needed to succeed in a business such as this, and he is bound to get what his heart ultimately desires.
Just what are the things needed to be able to succeed in affiliate marketing? What must one have within himself to be able to do well in this industry? There is a lot of competition involved in affiliate marketing, and to be able to rise above the norm, one must be equipped with just the right stuff necessary to propel him forward. There are five things one must ultimately possess if he wants to achieve the glory he is yearning for in this business, and these five things are a must for him to possess to be able to stand out among the rest.
The very first quality one must possess if he wants to try his hand in affiliate marketing is the willingness to learn and be trained. Treading through unfamiliar territory is scary stuff if one is not properly equipped, and he might get lost amidst a jungle of the unknown. Learning the tricks of the trade is also an important aspect of the game, and one’s willingness to know it all will give him far better advantages in the business than he could ever imagine.
The second quality one must possess is the willingness to invest time and effort even if direct results do not seem at all apparent. Although several months may pass without good news, it is important for one who has his foot in the industry to hold on and wait. It is this quality which would save him from giving up after investing a lot of himself in the business.
The third quality one must possess is self-determination. If one wants to conquer the affiliate marketing world, he must have the ability to push himself ahead. Never having to say die is a quality each and every affiliate marketer should possess, and the ability to motivate oneself into scaling greater heights is an ability which would actually take an affiliate marketer there.
The fourth quality one must possess is discipline. If one knows how to teach himself to work every day with all the energy he can muster, then he is close to achieving what he has set his heart to having in the first place.
The fifth and last quality one must possess is optimism. Negative attitudes and hearsays should not discourage an affiliate marketer from pursuing what he has to in order to make life better for himself and for everyone concerned. Neither should anyone influence his attitude toward the business, because once in it, it is a must for him to be the captain of his ship and the master of his soul.
The ingredients to success in a business such as an affiliate marketing are diverse and manifold, but the most important thing one needs to be able to make it big lies in himself alone. It is he who has the capacity to do everything to be able to realize his prospects, and the desire which fuels his heart in doing so is the gasoline which should keep the engine going.
Affiliate marketing is all about putting one’s fate into his own hands. The right attitude is the key to being able to steer one’s ship into that part of the ocean where a certain kind of serenity can be found, one that permeates the atmosphere as the ship sails calmly on.
What does it take to become a successful Affiliate Marketer? What are the ingredients of an affiliate marketing success story? Is there a shortcut to Affiliate Marketing glory? All these questions play around in the minds of affiliate marketers who want to make it big in this business.
Although affiliate marketing is touted as one of the easiest and most effective ways to earn money online, it is not as easy as it sounds. The wise affiliate marketer plans every action and executes it the best way he can. He should also maximize the potential to earn by utilizing the right tools necessary for a successful Affiliate Marketing business. We have consulted some of the most successful affiliate marketers in the business and below are the top three necessary tools for a successful affiliate marketing business.
Important Tool #1: Your Own Website
The most important and indispensable tool in Affiliate Marketing is your own website. The first step in any successful affiliate marketing business is building a good, credible and professional looking website. Your website is the jump-off point of all your marketing efforts. Thus, you must first build a user-friendly website, which will appeal to your prospects and encourage them to click on the links to the products and service you are promoting and make a purchase. Therefore, you must first concentrate your efforts in building a website that will cater to what your prospects need.
The most important thing you should consider is that almost all web users go online to look for information, not necessarily to go and buy something. Above all else, make your website full of original, relevant and useful content. People will love articles that are appealing and helpful. Keep in mind that, on the internet, content is still king and good quality content will not only build your credibility, it can also help you achieve a higher search engine ranking. By posting relevant and useful articles, you establish yourself as a credible expert in the field, making you a more trustworthy endorser of the product or service you promote. Establishing a good reputation is a good step in building up a loyal consumer base.
Important Tool #2: Incentives
Competition is extremely tight in the internet world. You must always be one step ahead of your rivals to ensure that you capture a significant share of your target market. Therefore, you must use every possible means to encourage people not only to visit your site but also to click and proceed to the websites of the products and services you are promoting. Building an opt-in email list is one of the best ways to gather prospects. Offer a newsletter or an e-zine. Better yet, offer incentives to your prospects to encourage them to subscribe to your newsletters. You can present free software, access to exclusive services and other freebies that will be helpful to your prospects.
Important Tool #3: Link Popularity
The importance of driving highly targeted traffic to your website cannot be emphasized enough. The all-important web traffic is at the top of the list of the most important entities in the internet world. Attracting people to your site should be the first step you should carry out. Do everything to achieve a high search engine ranking. Link Popularity is one of the factors that search engines use to determine search engine rankings. Therefore, to enhance your link popularity, you must launch an aggressive reciprocal link campaign.
One of the best ways to do this – at no cost at all – is by submitting articles, with your website's link at the resource box, to e-zines and free article sites. You will not only gain exposure, but you will also have the opportunity to advertise for free, just include a link back to your site. The more sites you submit your articles to, the better your link popularity is. Make your articles original, relevant and useful so that more websites will pick it up and post it.
These are but three of the many tools that an affiliate marketer can use to maximize earning potential. The possibilities are endless and are limited only by your imagination, creativity, resourcefulness and determination. You can always explore other ideas and adapt other strategies, which you think might help you become a high rolling affiliate marketer.
As someone who has been around the block a few times when it comes to internet marketing, I was a little apprehensive when I stumbled across the latest offering by Aaron Danker and his Super Sales Machine.
I have been involved in this business as both a product creator and an affiliate marketer for nearly 12 years, and it would be fair to say that I have seen it all when it comes to products which offer step by step methods to making money online.
Would the Super Sales Machine be any different to similar products on the market and do what it says on the tin, or would it be another case of the same old out-dated techniques and worn out products that have been flogged to death by every man and his dog?
So, what is Super Sales Machine?
The Super Sales Machine is a membership site which provides two review websites each month (free and paid versions) which promote popular products sold through Clickbank.com
I know from personal experience how lucrative this business model can be.
There can’t be many better feelings than hearing aping’ on your mobile phone when you have made yet another sale, or waking up in the morning to see numerous notifications that sales have been made whilst you have been asleep.
Affiliate marketing offers the man on the street a realistic way to truly embrace the internet marketing lifestyle without having to invest a fortune to do so, but choosing the best offers to promote is often described as the fine line between success and failure.
One of the best-kept secrets amongst those who are making money with affiliate marketing is that a well-written review of the product which is being promoted is the easiest and most effective way to make sales.
The problem is unless you are going to spend a fortune and invest in every product that you promote, AND you have the time and expertise to put together a review which will generate sales, you will find it an extremely slow and arduous process which results in many newcomers to the business simply giving up.
So, with that in mind, you can perhaps understand why I was a little wary when I heard about the Super Sales Machine, even though the man behind it has a superb reputation within the industry.
On arriving at the official website, you are greeted by a video and information which tells you exactly what is on offer, and I have to say that my concerns were immediately put to one side, but not for the reasons that I was expecting.
Please let me explain.
As already mentioned, the business model is a membership site which supplies members with two Clickbank review sites every month.
These review sites are of extremely high quality but more about that later, for now, I would like to touch on the type of products which are being reviewed.
A mistake I often see from inexperienced internet markers is that they choose to promote products which are here today and gone tomorrow.
For example, it is all well and good promoting an eBook which takes advantage of a so-called Google loophole in order to gain higher search engine rankings.
They may make a few initial sales, but then see any income grind to a halt as the loophole becomes outdated.
The marketers who achieve real success are those who promote evergreen products which will not only continue to sell this time next month, but also this time next year, and the year after that.
I will talk about some of the products that the reviews of this membership are based on later, but I should also point out the benefits of promoting on the Clickbank platform.
If you have not previously been involved in affiliate marketing, you may not be aware that you usually must obtain permission from the vendor to promote their products.
In my early days of internet marketing, I made the mistake of spending hours putting together a review site to promote a home study course but when I applied to join the affiliate program I was refused!
Different vendors have their own reason for accepting and denying affiliate requests but with Clickbank, you are automatically accepted to sell every product on their platform.
If you are not already signed up to Clickbank it is just a matter of doing so, and then you will be qualified to take advantage of every review site which is included in the Super Sales Machine membership.
Ok, now we’ve got that out of the way, let’s have a look at what you get when you grab a membership with the Super Sales Machine.
There are two types of membership on offer, a free version and a paid version which should cost $97 per month but is on offer now for $97 for a full year.
I know that it is always tempting to go with the free version of anything but in this case, an investment of $97 for what basically equates to 24 of the high-quality review sites is something of a no brainer.
Don’t get me wrong, if you decide to go for the free version you will still be able to go out there and make money, but it will be far easier to make sales with the paid versions.
The big difference between the two types of review sites is that the ones which come with the paid membership are video sales letters.
Believe me when I say that there is a big difference between the two when it comes to how well they convert.
These are not that kind of video sales letters which are based around someone speaking over a PowerPoint presentation but instead, professional actors who expertly use powerful techniques to explain the benefits of the products which are being promoted.
The subjects of the review sites in the Super Sales Machines that I reviewed are about as far removed from the usual ‘internet marketing’ niches and this is one of the reasons why I am so impressed by this membership
The four review sites which I reviewed promoted the following Clickbank products and I wouldn’t blame you if you had not even considered entering some of these markets before.
The thing to remember is that large numbers of people are passionate about these subjects to the point that they sometimes think of nothing else.
They are actively looking for the products that these review sites promote and all they need is a little persuasion in order for them to get their credit cards out and make a purchase.
I’m sorry if I sound a little over-excited by what is on offer here but the potential to go out and make money from these lucrative review sites is huge.
I am probably the same as you when it comes to running my online business in that as well as looking for ways to make money, I am also interested in saving money!
So, if you were asking yourself if you could put one of these review sites together yourself and save some money, I don’t blame you because I asked myself the same question.
I started to make a few calculations but after a few minutes, I found myself staring at my calculator in disbelief.
The membership to Super Sales Machines is on offer at the moment for $97 per year, which equates to 24 of these review sites.
I couldn’t even get the price down to $97 for one, in fact, the lowest I got to was just under $150 and that was by cutting lots of corners, not a very good idea!
I couldn’t be more impressed with the Super Sales Machine membership package and I actually feel bad that I had my doubts when I first heard about it, but I should have known better when I saw that Aaron Danker is behind it.
It’s not often that a membership site like this ticks all of the boxes but this one certainly does.
- High-quality sales letters
- Promoting superb, evergreen products
- Easy to set up
- First-class support
- Suitable for beginners and experts
- The ability to generate sales for years to come
If money is tight, I would advise that you take advantage of the free membership that Aaron is offering but if at all possible, make an investment of $97 and it will go down as one of the best investments that you will ever make.
In these times of uncertainty, when so many people are worried about their financial future, this is probably one of the best opportunities out there to make a wonderful passive income whilst having the time and resources to enjoy the finer things in life.
I think you can probably tell that I am impressed with the Super Sales Machine, so it goes without saying that it comes with my highest recommendation.

Many activities can potentially reduce the risk of early memory loss later in life. The Anti-AgingGames.com science team reviewed over 17,000 medical studies to create this list of best lifestyle changes that can keep your brain fit and memory strong. You may share this information with others as long as it is copied in its entirety.Click here for the video version of the tips (recently selected as an Editor's Pick on TEDxTalks)Anti-AgingGames.com features fun and easy memory, focus, and relaxation games designed by Nolan Bushnell, the Founder of Atari, and a team of expert neurobehavioral scientists. Anti-AgingGames.com is the only brain stimulation site optimized for cognitively healthy people over the age of 35.
1. Move it!: Aerobic exercise is one of the most effective ways to reduce the risk of early memory loss. The Canadian Study of Health and Aging found that brisk walking 30 minutes a day five times a week is linked to 33 per cent less Alzheimer's and 30 per cent fewer strokes. And vigorous aerobic exercise is even better and is associated with Alzheimer's rates by 50 per cent. One reason for this is that fast walking increases the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain, re-energizing it with nutrients and washing away waste by-products. If you can't walk briskly, ask your doctor what aerobic activity is suitable for you and how best to stretch before and after exercising.
2. Teach your brain new tricks: Your brain loves novelty and variety. Keep your brain stimulated through mentally engaging activities because learning helps build new neural connections, even in adults. Sites like Anti-AgingGames.com feature brain stimulation games and there are many things offline that you can do to engage your brain: play chess or bridge, learn a new instrument or language or complicated dance. You don't even have to be good at the activity. The best learning activities for your brain are mentally engaging, interactive, enjoyable, and new for you. Make lifelong learning and brain stimulation a priority in your life starting today.
3. Avoid poisons: Smoking even social smoking should be avoided. If the damage smoking can cause your lungs isn't enough of a reason to quit, then consider the impact it can have on your brain. Researchers at Kaiser Permanente found that heavy smoking in mid-life may double the risk of dementia later in life. And a study from the Netherlands showed that tobacco use in mid-life was associated with more twice as much cognitive decline more than two decades later. Other types of poisons to avoid are lead and toxic chemicals in products you use regularly. CosmeticsDatabase.com is a free website that allows you to look up safety ratings for shampoos, soaps, sunscreens, cleaning supplies, and makeup so that you can switch to safer brands.
4. Eat more colourfully: The diet that has been most strongly connected to the best health benefits is the Mediterranean Diet. Researchers determined that people who followed the Mediterranean Diet most closely were 36% less likely to have stroke-related brain damage and 28% less mild cognitive impairment compared to those who followed the diet least closely. Even those who only moderately followed the diet had a 21% lower risk of brain damage and 17% less mild cognitive impairment, compared with the lowest group. The Lyon Heart Health Study concluded that after an average of 46 months on the Mediterranean diet, people who followed the diet had a 50-70% lower risk of recurrent heart disease. The Mediterranean Diet is a colourful diet and involves eating 7-10 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, eating whole grains instead of white bread, using herbs instead of salt, and using extra virgin olive oil instead of butter. Vegetables and fruits that are dark green (spinach, broccoli, asparagus, and collard greens), orange (squash, yams), dark blue or red (blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries) are particularly good for you. If you eat dairy, choose low-fat or skim varieties. Beans, peas, lentils, and sunflower seeds are good sources of folate, which is essential to make and repair DNA. Fish is one of the best foods to eat and is recommended twice a week. Salmon is preferred because it has a lot of Omega-3s and wild salmon is recommended because many farmed salmon are said to contain PCBs, a type of toxin. Sardines are also recommended and are a good source of calcium. A number of studies have shown that regularly eating a small handful of raw nuts (especially walnuts and almonds) may have protective properties against cardiovascular diseases. Try to get plain nuts, not roasted or salted or ones with hydrogenated oils. Also, remember that nuts are high in calories so you'll need to decrease the same number of calories by cutting down on fat and sugar from other parts of your diet. Remember to check with your doctor before you change your diet since some foods can cause irritation for some medical conditions and may even interfere with certain medicines.
5. Kick back and relax: Too much stress can actually rewire the brain, impairing memory and decision making capabilities, increasing anxiety and reducing the ability to regulate mood. That's because chronic stress causes an increase of certain brain chemicals and hormones, like cortisol, that in large quantities can negatively affect parts of the brain that are essential to memory. Find something you enjoy that helps you relax, like a hobby, reading a book or doing yoga. The brain is resilient if you give it a chance! Sleeping enough is also important. Researchers found that people who sleep less than six hours per night or more than nine hours per night tend to have lower cognitive scores than people who slept between 7.5-8 hours per night.
6. Be social: Spending time with friends and family is far more important for your mental health than most people realize. A Harvard University study discovered that people with five or more regular social ties had half the risk of cognitive decline than those with no social ties. Another study found that even a ten-minute social interaction resulted in improved cognitive performance. The quality of the social ties appears to matter, so make sure you spend time with people you genuinely like.
7. Find life's purpose: Having a purpose in life is even more important than a reason to get out of bed in the morning. It's also good for your brain. Researchers at Rush University Medical Center found that people who scored high on a life purpose test were 2.4 times less likely to develop Alzheimer's than those with the lowest scores. It's never too late to find something that you truly care about, start a project or volunteer for something that is meaningful for you.
8. Partner with your doctor: Consult with your doctor before making any changes to your diet or exercise regime because changes, including supplements and foods, may interfere with your medicines or aggravate certain conditions. For example, one study suggested that eating broccoli and cauliflower twice per week was linked to at least 20% less cancer (for some types of cancer) but both broccoli and cauliflower may not be good for some people with thyroid problems. It's not enough to have a nice doctor or one who has been your doctor for a long time. A good doctor is proactive, understands the role of nutrition, stretching, exercise, and doesn't rely on symptom-covering medicine and surgery only. Find a doctor who really understands preventative medicine, never skip your annual checkup, and always check in before making changes to your diet, exercise, or lifestyle. Your doctor can also help you sort through the numerous health fads and studies that grab the media's attention every month, and figure out which ones will actually benefit your health.
9. Don't forget to floss: Daily flossing and brushing aren't just critical for healthy teeth and gums. They also might help keep your brain healthy. That's because your teeth can be a major source of inflammation as well as infection, both of which may cause damage in the brain, heart, and other parts of the body. Some scientists believe that the inflammation caused by gum disease might increase the risk of Alzheimer's.
10. Protect your head: Some studies have linked moderate-to-severe head trauma to two to four times the risk of Alzheimer's. Protect your head and avoid activities that pose a high risk of brain injury, like texting while driving which has been found to increase the chance of a car crash by 23 times. Five major studies have shown that bicycle helmets reduce the risk of brain injury by as much as 88 per cent. Don't panic if you've already hit your head, there are a number of factors including what area was hit and how long you were unconscious for but take extra care to protect your head from now on.
11. Positive attitude matters! The Nun Study tracked 678 nuns over the course of their lives and found that nuns who described their lives with more positive emotion words not only lived longer but also were healthier. There seemed to even be a neuroprotective effect that surprised scientists and will warrant further research. You can practice optimism and break the habits of cynicism or ungratefulness. Look for the opportunity or lesson in each challenge and practice random acts of kindness. One study showed that people who think of five reasons to be grateful before bed daily reported feeling happier after just 21 days.
12. Decide to live better right now: Just reading the tips isn't enough; to potentially improve your health and life you'll need to take action. Program into your phone, computer, or calendar a monthly reminder that says, "Live Better". Every month you see the reminder, ask yourself what incremental change you can make to live better. Perhaps you need to walk more, see friends more often, relax more, or eat better. Continuous improvement over time is a great way to improve your long-term since you are regularly inviting yourself to take an honest look at yourself and see what areas can be improved.

In this blog post, I will give you my personal review on a brand new site called ViralPLR.
There's been a lot of garbage and hype out there about the latest and greatest tool that can make you rich overnight. Don't be fooled because there's no such thing. There really is no magic pill to riches.
What you need is a product which you can sell online, and a system that can build all this for you.
Well, today I'm proud to recommend ViralPLR.
What is ViralPLR?
It's a site where you can get access to a brand new, rebrandable product every single month.
These products are information products based around hot topics related to Internet marketing and self-improvement -- both proven to be big markets where a lot of money can be made.
At first glance, you're probably thinking that ViralPLR provides PLR (private label rights) products. Although they do provide private label rights in its upgraded "Gold" membership (explained later), but if you sign up for free you get rebrandable rights.
What this means is that each product is rebranded with your details such as your name and website on the eBooks� title page so it appears as though you authored the eBook.
This gives you a huge advantage because 1) you don't need to write a single word and 2) you build your credibility and authority.
The rebranding of each eBook is done automatically using the ViralPLR Rebranding tool. You don't need to mess around with document editors and PDF.
How Does It Work?
After you've signed up to ViralPLR, you can access the members' area and the product of the month.
Follow the steps that are shown in the members' dashboard. You want to make sure you fill in your details correctly as it will be used on the current eBook and every other eBook you receive each month when a member downloads your rebranded eBook.
You are given a unique promotion link to promote each product. There's a link to promote the product as a lead generator and a link if you want to resell the product to make money.
If you want to use it as a lead generator, it will use the ready-made "squeeze page" where people can sign up to download the product.
If you want to make money, it will use the sales page where people can purchase the product where you'll get paid per sale.
The best part is that any leads you generate will be stored in the ViralPLR Email System which you can then use to broadcast any emails like an offer or newsletter to your leads. This makes it one powerful system in my opinion.
What Are The Benefits of ViralPLR?
Firstly, it's going to save you time and money by not having to create new products, designing web pages, web hosting and write.

How to Improve Your Memory
Those first signs of slipping memory can be a little alarming – especially if you know the dreariness of that route. You may first see it in your 40s, or even younger, with memory loss symptoms like slower facial recall or where you left your keys. What groceries were you supposed to buy? Wait – you forgot your grocery list at home.
While it’s normal to forget things on occasion, it’s a pattern to watch. The makers of Brain Pill natural memory supplement believe it’s important to keep your brain active. Challenge your memory – just like a muscle, give your brain a good workout daily with these memory-boosting tips courtesy of Brain Pill: Use Your Memory Daily – Your brain needs a workout just like the rest of you. It’s a case of ‘use it or lose it’, so use your brain every day.
Try crosswords, for example, or read a section of the newspaper you’d normally skip. You might also take a different route to work, for example, or learn another language or how to play a musical instrument. See Your Friends – You’re not an island, dude.
Depression and stress can both lead to memory loss, which is why you’ll want to socialize often – especially if you live alone. Be with others and take them up on their invitations. Life gets better when you do.
Organize Your Life! – You lose points with a cluttered home because you’re more likely to forget stuff. So make lists and notes of appointments and things to do in a special notebook or on your calendar. Heck, download an app on your iPod and write down what needs to get done.
Speak it out loud too, to reinforce it in your memory, and check-off your tasks when completed. While we’re on the subject, try to stay focused on the task at hand and limit distractions. You’re more likely to recall information if you concentrate specifically on that rather than multi-tasking.
Put another way, focus on what you want to remember later and you’re in better shape to remember it quickly. Sleep Well – Shut-eye helps your memory. Most adults need seven to eight hours of sleep each night. So make time for adequate rest – go to bed earlier if you have to and work on your sleep hygiene. Your memory will thank you when you try to remember stuff the next day.
Eat Healthily – Do you see a pattern here? Your memory likes healthy living. That extends to your diet, with plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Opt for low-fat protein, like fish and skinless poultry. Drink plenty of water too, and watch the alcohol intake. Exercise Daily – This boosts blood flow throughout your body. That includes your noggin.
Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity (like walking) each week, says the Department of Health and Human Services, or 75 minutes of something with greater intensity, like jogging, though even a few 10-minute brisk walks per day will suffice in a pinch. Stay in Touch With Your Doctor – Chronic conditions can affect your memory, to say nothing about the rest of your health.
So follow your doctor’s recommendations, be it for depression, your kidneys or anything else in your medical history. Review your medications often with your doctor as well – some medications can reduce your memory.
Try Brain PillWe can’t end an article on how to improve your memory without mention of Brain Pill natural memory supplement. That’s because it’s simply rocket fuel for your brain; a cognitive booster with clinically proven nootropics like cognizing, vinpocetine and ginkgo Biloba, which increase alertness and blood flow in your brain.
Studies also suggest the ingredients in Brain Pill enhance and may even protect memory. They don’t call it ‘Your Unfair Advantage’ without good reason – better memory is linked to higher cognitive function. Your brain is more efficient with a sharp memory, which gives you better intelligence, and the financial and social rewards that go with them.
Try Brain Pill to improve your memory. Combine it with the memory-boosting tips we’ve discussed in this article, and you really do have an unfair advantage.
Your memory will like it too, and you may finally have a solution to that pain-in-the-butt issue of where you left your keys!For more information: >>> https://www.BrainPill.com/ct/293116
8 Reasons Why You Need to Keep Growing, No Matter Your Age.
While some people would like to think that learning and changing are things only younger people need to worry about, nothing could be further from the truth. Personal growth and developing is actually something you should worry about at all times, no matter your age. Lifelong learning can benefit you at all stages and should be something you strive for at all points in your life. Here are eight reasons why…
Reason #1. You Will Live Longer. Studies show that those who continue to be mentally active throughout their lives will live longer and be much more fulfilled in their later years. Learning gives you a purpose and helps you stay healthy.
Reason #2. You Can Share Your Knowledge with Others. Those who value lifelong learning appreciate the opportunity to share what they know with others. They enjoy teaching as well as learning. When you help others learn, you become a leader and apply your knowledge in new and more profound ways that strengthen your understanding. Being a continuous learner means that you want others to continue learning, as well.
Reason #3. You Can Value and Understand Different Perspectives. Instead of thinking you already know it all, continuous learning helps you see that you can gain a great deal from other people. Knowledge helps you understand different viewpoints, solutions, and perspectives, and the more you know, the more you value that others have different ideas from you. Only when you are open to learning can you truly change who you are and what you believe.
Reason #4. You, Will, Be More Socially Aware Only when you intentionally seek out perspectives and viewpoints different from your own can you increase your empathy and social awareness. If you want to know more about the world and make a difference in your community, then you must be willing to learn about the problems that people face and to find solutions that can help.
Reason #5. You, Will, Be More Employable. The days of one career in a lifetime are over, and we all need to keep learning to survive in an ever-changing job market. If you want to stay employable as well as continue to advance in your chosen field, then continuing to learn and grow is imperative. Knowledge and skills need to grow with your industry, and at some point, you might change careers altogether, so your ability to learn will come in handy when you do. Employers today want people who can learn, not people who think they already know everything.
Reason #6. You, Will, Feel More Confident When you are good at what you do, you feel confident in yourself. Lifelong learning and the ability to keep growing can help you master your capabilities and raise your self-esteem throughout your life. When you feel confident, you are more likely to succeed and to take more risks, which can bring you more significant rewards.
Reason #7. You, Will, be Better Prepared for the Changes of the World. The world is continually changing and evolving, and if you do not try to keep up, you can soon get left behind. Whether it is technology, world events, economics, or just the skills needed to survive in the world, it is vital to stay fresh and always be learning about the latest thing. The more you know, the more prepared you are for changes and can more easily keep up with life and the fast-paced world.
Reason #8. You, Will, Be Better Prepared to Deal with Challenges. When you value learning and growing throughout your life, you see opportunities instead of challenges, which makes you better prepared for facing the obstacles that life will throw at you. When you are faced with unexpected outcomes, your ability to learn will help you stretch your comfort zone and find new opportunities instead of wallow in unfortunate circumstances.
Aging is a natural process that everyone is subjected to. As a matter of fact, the ageing process started kicking at the moment we were born. However, its unsightly effects are only felt when we start hitting middle age.
Despite this, knowing what triggers the unwanted effects of ageing and being aware of the right products can actually help you easily slow down or give the illusion that you have halted the ageing process before its effects actually get on your nerves.
Many people are getting more and more afraid of facing the signs of ageing. There is definitely no one in the world who would love seeing visible lines on their face or damaged skin complexions.
Unfortunately, age sneaks up like a thief in the night. You might not like it nor appear to be combating it lightly but inevitably, you grow a year older after every three hundred sixty-five days.
As years add up to your age, they come with changes that take the youth in you. The function of the cells and organisms in your body shift, creating visible changes that sometimes come rapidly.
The ageing process may be different with each individual because there are many factors that contribute to it, but the bottom line is, everyone will surely get to it at one point of their lives or another.
Some of the bodily changes that you will experience include a significant difference in your weight and height. Weight increase is one of the major concerns that ageing people wish to find a solution.
Reduced physical activity due to the weakness of the bones and muscles will definitely take its toll on your weight. Your height, on the other hand, naturally decreases as you get older.
This is a result of a handful of factors like changes in posture and in the growth process of your spinal bones. Aside from these, your skin is also a foolproof sign that you are getting older. It becomes rough, loose, and dry. Women get more concerned about skin changes than men because they tend to experience them faster. With the many hormonal changes women go through starting at the onset of puberty, pregnancy and menopause included, their skin rapidly becomes more vulnerable to age.
Your mental abilities may also become limiting as you grow older. Learning would be a lot more hard work than, say when you were on your twenties. Memory loss is also one of the more popular effects of ageing.
Older people are oftentimes forgetful because of their brain process information slower than usual. Your mental fitness would also contribute to the many emotional combats that you will face. Anxiety and depression are very common among the older population because of the physical and mental limitations that they come across.
Sexual performance is also greatly affected by ageing. You may either lose the appetite or the ability to do it all together.
Some say maintaining a constant supply of the magical Human Growth Hormones (HGH) is like enjoying a youthful life forever. HGH production peaks in adolescence and slowly decreases after you reach your twenties.
The decrease is more significant as you grow older, which explains the overall difference that you experience if you are beyond your fifties. Low levels of HGH in your body system is the main reason behind the visibility of the signs of ageing.
Among the many things that can be benefited from the aid of proper HGH levels are healthy skin, a more functional immune system, decreased body fat, increased muscle mass, increased bone density, low cholesterol, and high energy levels among others.
The older population may submit themselves to an HGH Replacement Therapy to continuously enjoy the limitless possibilities of being young and healthy.
There are, of course, things that you can do to enjoy the youthfulness of being young without having to go through pricey medications and therapies.
One is to maintain a healthy lifestyle, meaning, continuously participating in physical activities. Regular exercise is a good solution that will slow the ageing process down without having to shell out bucks.
A good exercise program that you follow regularly is the best answer to combat weight gain, muscle loss, bone density decline, or even any form of heart and cholesterol-related diseases for that matter.
Eating healthy is another trigger that could make you look and feel young longer. The right choices of foods and taking in the right amounts of them would create a great impact on your body's vitality.
Do away with less fat, less salt, less sugar, and more greens, so your body could enjoy the most benefits from eating rather than suffering from the ugly consequences of not eating right.
Avoiding harmful vices like smoking and alcohol drinking can do loads to you more than you can imagine. Smoking is detrimental to the whole body. It triggers premature death but will not let you go looking young as well.
The major components of cigarettes have harmful effects that are especially reflected on your complexion. Dry and rough skin can be caused by the poor circulation and low oxygen levels in your blood, which are generated through puffing airs of smokes. Alcohol, on the other hand, depletes your body of the vitamins and minerals it needed to be functional. It also causes dehydration.
Keeping a stress-free and happy life most of the time would surely make you feel better about a lot of things and in the process, would make you age gracefully. Stress affects your body and your well-being greatly so make sure that you manage all the aspects of your life well including your career and your personal and social relationships with people.
Admittedly, the fast-paced era held back people to keep a healthy, balanced, and stress-free life only realizing later on that they should have done so. But by that time, you may well be reaching old age and would find it difficult to repair the damages that your old habits created.
The good news is, there is a tried and tested way to help counteract the symptoms of ageing in a no-sweat fashion. GenF20™ helps supply your body's needed HGH to maintain its youthful glow. It tackles all the ugly nightmares that most people worry about getting older. Amid all its benefits, GenF20™ is also safe, so you will not have to worry about side effects.

How do sexual enhancement creams for women work?
The cream is applied to the woman's genital area, specifically the underside of the clitoral hood, allowing the active ingredients to directly stimulate the tissue surface.
Once applied, the cream improves blood flow and dilation of the blood vessels around the clitoris, greatly enhancing sensitivity and arousal. Although response time varies with each individual woman and with the specific product chosen, the effects tend to develop more rapidly with sexual stimulation through touching, rubbing, and licking in the clitoral area.
Are the effects noticeable immediately?
Yes, most products, especially Vigorelle™, immediately increase sensations. Not only does the product work right away, but with continued use, a woman's responses should become even more intense.
I used to have a strong sex drive and much more sensitivity, but over the years this has diminished. What's going on?
Would a women's enhancement cream help?
Women naturally undergo many hormonal, physical and even attitudinal changes during their lifetimes that can affect sexual response.
Good overall health and a concerted effort to reduce stress can be helpful, but adding enhancement creams to the sexual routine will provide a significant impact on any woman. Users of the Vigorelle™ brand of female enhancement cream report excellent restoration of youthful sexual intensity, and experiences that are new and exceptionally conducive to orgasm.
Are there any side effects with these products?
With high-quality products, the answer is no. You should check to see that the cream you're choosing is 100% all-natural with no propylene glycol or methylparaben substances.
Quality creams are safe and natural and work through direct application to the skin. Since they are not pills or powders that must be ingested, there's no incidence of gastrointestinal upset.
On the other hand, it is always wise to sample products like this with a small dosage before using it on a larger scale. If no irritations develop during the test, you should be good to use the product as directed.
How do I know which product to try?
You can investigate the ingredients and the method of manufacture (look for safe, certified pharmaceutical-grade facilities).
Also, you should go with a reputable company that's been around awhile and has a large number of satisfied customers. Our testing showed Vigorelle™ to be the best product in this category, though product choice is essentially yours.
Are female sexual enhancement creams expensive?
Prices vary by manufacturer. However, it's good to keep in mind that you get what you pay for -- and in this category of products, we'd advise shopping by criteria other than price alone.
Companies that use only top-quality essential active ingredients obviously cost more to make, consequently have to charge more for their products.
How can I obtain these products and maintain my privacy?
Ordering online is a great way to discreetly get the product you want.
Read the site carefully to find out how the manufacturer ships; if they don't already ship in plain packaging that doesn't reveal the contents, you may be able to request the service.
How about a guarantee?
You should insist on a guarantee, and make sure to read the fine print. Although all reputable companies offer them, not all companies that have them are reputable...
Take the extra time to read how the guarantee works, some products require a one year supply to be eligible for a refund, so shop carefully! If you have trouble finding a product you trust on your own, we recommend Vigorelle™, as it features a straight forward guarantee that you can have confidence in.

ProSolution Plus is a Natural Remedy For Premature Ejaculation.
Here's a question for you: how many factors can trigger premature ejaculation? Here's your answer: lots of them, from medications and lifestyle factors to stress and performance anxiety. Often it has no visible cause - but now there's a remedy.
ProSolution Plus is a natural male enhancement supplement. The makers of ProSolution Pills launched the product in 2013 with an eye on Chinese and Ayurvedic remedies for premature ejaculation, with the latter affecting up to 30% of guys and with often devastating quality of life.
It's no stretch to say you can call ProSolution Plus a natural remedy. In a study published in the American Journal of Therapeutics, the ProSolution Plus formula improved symptoms of premature ejaculation by up to 64%.
Take a magnifying glass to the product and you'll observe a methodically researched and strategically blended mix of time-tested minerals, vitamins and herbals, including:
Tribulus Terrestris - Used for thousands of years by Asian cultures to naturally increase sex drive and function, researchers validated this practice in 2008 with a study published in Phytomedicine, in which they found that Tribulus Terrestris increased mounting, ejaculation and recovery time in rats. Further evidence suggests it may naturally increase testosterone and DHEA.
Withania Somnifera - Often used in Ayurvedic medicine, Withania somnifera promotes relaxation and is ideal for guys with performance anxiety.
Your erection will thank you too - a 2003 review by Italian researchers found that this plant and member of the nightshade family increased nitric oxide synthase in macrophages. Translation: more blood flow to the genitalia.
Asparagus Adscendens - Asparagus may fly low on the radar among natural aphrodisiacs, but you'd be mistaken to ignore it.
Asparagus is high in potassium, fibre, vitamins B6, A and C, thiamine and folic acid. It's a natural anti-inflammatory too, and it proved to increase sexual activity and attraction to your partner. No wonder 16th-century herbalist Nicholas Culpepper said: "asparagus stirs up lust in men and women"!
Mucuna Pruriens - Wanna feel good? Mucuna pruriens is a tropical legume with L-Dopa. That's a precursor to l-dopamine, a chemical that regulates sexuality, mood and pleasure. Animal studies show that mucuna pruriens increases sexual activity and recovery time.
Asteracantha Longifolia - Mount frequency, sperm volume and greater attraction to female sexual partners. Asteracantha is a plant used in Ayurvedic medicine believed to increase fructose levels in the seminal vesicles. These are the tubular glands that produce your semen.
Curculigo Orchiodes - In 2007, researchers found that the rhizomes in curculio orchioides helped penile erection, mating and frequency of sexual activity. This is a flowering plant that has many researchers salivating for what else it might do.
Asphaltum (Shilajit) - Shilajit develops between rock cracks in the Himalayas and central Asia. With origins like that you can see how it's packed with over 85 vitamins and minerals that may offer protection against many ailments, including arthritis and GI disorders.
But it's the sexual health applications that are of interest to you, and there's plenty of that with shilajit - evidence links it to increased vitality, better sexual health and improved premature ejaculation.

Beating Male Depression
Despite what you may have heard, depression affects men as profoundly as it does women.
Yes, we've all heard the jokes about the male mid-life crisis and the questions of self-identity that go with it.
But there's a darker side to depression in men. Over a million people take their lives worldwide each year. American men are three to four times more likely to commit suicide than women. In fact, American men between 20 and 24 have a suicide rate seven times higher than women in the same age bracket.
While not all depressed men are going to commit suicide, symptoms of depression affect men's lives and can have a profound impact on their careers, health and their loved ones. Symptoms of depression include feelings of hopelessness, guilt or helplessness, low mood and an inability to feel pleasure, lack of energy and insomnia.
Compounding the problem is the fact that men can find it difficult to reach out and ask for help with depression. Reaching out can make men feel unmanly and weak.
This article outlines how to reach out to men experiencing depression, either yourself or someone you know.
First of all, talk to people. While men often find it difficult to talk about depression, they're more likely to talk about depression-related symptoms they might experience, like insomnia or lack of energy. Talking to a doctor is a good place to start, as it may help diagnose the root cause of the symptoms.
Don't bottle up your feelings. If you've had a blow out with someone, tell someone about it. Alleviate the tension that can build up inside.
Stay active. Exercise benefits both the body and mind, and not only help you sleep better, but it's also a great stress relief and an effective way to shed excess pounds. Recent studies are now linking depression to obesity. At the very least, you'll look better with regular exercise. Chances are, you'll feel better too.
Maintain a healthy diet, with lots of fruits and vegetables. Some of the best depression-fighting foods include brown rice, whole grains, leafy vegetables and oily fish. Salmon, herring, mackerel and sardines are all high in the omega-3 fatty acid EPA. In a 2002 clinical study, researchers found that participants who took a gram of fish oil each day experienced a 50% reduction in depressive symptoms, including insomnia, feelings of hopelessness and suicidal thoughts.
Stay away from processed foods and foods that are high in fat and sugar. Also avoid excessive caffeine and alcohol, which can make depressive symptoms much worse.
Practice relaxation techniques and exercises like yoga. Have a massage or practice aromatherapy. Lemon oil, for example, is a powerful anti-depressant and clinical studies have shown it can reduce stress.
Try to sleep between seven and eight hours a night. This can be difficult when experiencing depression, as insomnia is a common depressive symptom. Therefore, practice good sleep hygiene. Make your bedroom an inviting place to sleep. Keep it dark and cool and avoid coffee and stimulants before going to bed. Having said this, try not to get upset if you can't sleep. Avoid sleeping pills, and with enough healthy lifestyle factors, you'll eventually sleep better.
Don't forget to do something you enjoy! Spend time on a hobby or something you enjoy. Maybe it's golfing. Maybe you're a stamp collector. Whatever you enjoy, spend some time to do it. And if it gets you outside when the sun is shining, even better.
Review your lifestyle. Many men who experience depressive symptoms are also perfectionists. In some cases, it can be wise to reduce expectations or workload. Or even explore the options of a new career.
If nothing else, take a break from your regular routine. A vacation can do wonders for your life perspective, but even a few days or a few hours can help.
And finally, try a good human growth hormone (HGH) releaser. These are dietary supplements that boost HGH production in men and women, which reduce the effects of ageing, including fewer wrinkles, less body fat, increased lean muscle mass and enhanced sex drive.
An HGH releaser can reduce depressive symptoms in men and boost the overall quality of life, including more sex, younger appearance and increased feelings of well-being. And because they're dietary supplements, they're available without a doctor prescription. Privacy is a good HGH releaser for men, as it's specifically formulated with natural ingredients to address andropause or the steady decrease of hormone production in men, and comes with no known side effects.
Depression in men is a serious issue that can have far-reaching consequences. But it doesn't have to. With the tips you've found in this article you're equipped to manage depression and minimize the disruption it can create in either your life or someone you know. For more info >>>
What is Instant Wrinkle Reducer?
So you thought Botox only came in needles. You were right – but wrong at the same time. Because although Botox injections remain the raison d’etre of the anti-ageing elite, and get rid of wrinkles fast, and with shocking efficiency, Instant Wrinkle Reducer is formulated with a peptide from those famous injections.
The peptide, called Argireline, gives Instant Wrinkle Reducer the same effect as Botox, albeit to a less (and less invasive) degree. That makes the product of interest to women and men who want to look young quickly.
Like Botox, the results are not permanent with Instant Wrinkle Reducer. And yet you get a similar result: use Instant Wrinkle Reducer to make wrinkles fade quickly – as in while you watch. Then enjoy the gift of looking younger for up to eight hours.
Introducing Instant Wrinkle Reducer
Instant Wrinkle Reducer is a topical cream from the Skinception line of skincare products. Like you’d expect with a product with that name on the label, it’s on the cutting edge of skincare science.
Admittedly, Instant Wrinkle Reducer is not the product you’d buy for ongoing wrinkle reduction; this is to look young now. You’re paying for fast results with Instant Wrinkle Reducer, and that’s precisely what you get, thanks to its combination of two ingredients that quickly get rid of wrinkles and help make facial skin look youthful and resilient.
Those ingredients are:
Argireline – A peptide fragment of SNAP-25, Argireline is a substrate of Botox and works in a similar manner, but has a short term effect.
Hyaluronic Acid – A substance that occurs naturally in human connective tissue, synovial fluid and the eye, hyaluronic acid binds to water in the skin and keeps it hydrated. Hyaluronic acid tends to decrease with age, which contributes to ageing with the passage of time.
These two ingredients pack an instant anti-ageing wallop to facial skin; the Argireline prevents the facial muscles from contracting, and the hyaluronic acid binds to water in your skin. The latter helps to restore two skin proteins, collagen and elastin, which gives skin its thick and resilient qualities present in young people.
What to Expect
Expect what the name implies. Instant Wrinkle Reducer gets rid of wrinkles instantly, for up to eight hours, so you look radiant at work, out for the evening, or other times and places where you want and need to look your best.
Use Instant Wrinkle Reducer for:
A Quick Fix – The real reason you’re buying Instant Wrinkle Reducer. You won’t be disappointed – the product is formulated to fade wrinkles while you watch, and keep skin looking youthful for close to a full workday (or a long night out!).
Painless Wrinkle Reduction – One of the biggest selling points of Instant Wrinkle Reduction is the fact that it’s topical. No needles here – Instant Wrinkle Reducer does not hurt (and it absorbs quickly).
Awesome Results – You’re getting the same mechanism as Botox with Instant Wrinkle Reducer. That may not last for three months, but you should see a huge difference regardless.
90 Days to Get Your Money Back
Instant Wrinkle Reducer is a Skinception product. You know what that means. Aside from the reassurance of a quality label, it also gets you 90 days to try the product and return it for a complete refund minus shipping and handling if you’re not happy.
Very few clients are returning the product, but that certainly helps. You wouldn’t get that for the $800+ you’d plop down for a Botox injection, but you get it with Instant Wrinkle Reducer – and the immediate and dramatic results that go with it.
The gist of things with Instant Wrinkle Reducer is you’ll look younger, fast, and get your money back if you don’t. That’s reassurance, and a nice touch by a company that cares about its clients. For more info >>>
How TestRX Can Help Your Weightlifting
Tell me if this sounds familiar. You’ve hit the gym hard for months and the gains are slower. You’re bummed, because you’re barely maintaining the muscle you have. You’ve got less motivation to hit the weights as a result – and you really, truly don’t want to be in the gym at the moment.
Can you relate?
You’ve hit your plateau. This happens to the best of us when we’re weightlifting, and it can really affect your confidence in the gym. Is there a solution? Here’s an idea – take a step back, make a new iPod workout list and try TestRX weightlifting supplement, which boosts testosterone and can help get you back on track.
Weightlifting and Protein Synthesis
Protein is the building block of muscle. Sound familiar? Well, it’s true – muscles occur when your body repairs the microtears in muscular tissue after weightlifting (or resistance training in general). Your body adds extra tissue as a response, to help you adapt to the greater workload.
Protein fuels this process, and testosterone makes protein, in a process called protein synthesis, which makes that protein usable by the body. If you want to get technical, testosterone binds to androgen receptors in muscle cells, which stimulates protein synthesis and gives you bigger pipes.
Most guys tend to lose about 1% of their natural testosterone levels each year after 30, though it can often be more than that. And that’s where TestRX comes into play – it stimulates natural testosterone naturally, and can help you get the body you want without needles or synthetic hormones.
How Does This Help ME?
If you’re plateauing, TestRX can give you more testosterone. It’s important to vary up your program though – you should take at least a week off and tweak your routine a little (TestRX has a good resource on its site on how to break though plateaus – be sure to check it out).
If you’re not plateauing, you will at some point. TestRX can help you regardless, because it’s a natural weightlifting supplement that stimulates natural testosterone, and that helps protein synthesis, and aids with faster recovery, bigger muscles, and a variety benefits that help in the weight room. Stuff like:

Bigger muscles AND more sex. There ain’t nothing wrong with that!
Think about this as well; muscles on a guy are like breasts on a woman. We can’t take our eyes off of them (don’t lie – you know what you’re looking at when a woman wears a low-cut dress!).

Every once in awhile, I am asked why I love network marketing. And, it’s a conversation I enjoy having as I find out a lot of people still really don’t know what network marketing is.
The simplest explanation I can give someone is, “Imagine referring your friends to a movie you really enjoyed and the movie theatre paying you a commission every time your referrals bought tickets.”. Most people understand that part pretty easy.
Then, I go on to say, “Now imagine the people you referred start doing the same thing. They can get commissions every time their referrals buy movie tickets. AND … since you are the one who showed them how to do it, you get a little bit of commission, too.”
And that is one of the reasons I love network marketing. It really is pretty simple to understand. There can be more complicated systems available, but my favourite way to think of it is “connecting consumers to products and services they enjoy”.
I also love the idea that I can decide my income. I can earn more or less depending on how effective I am at prospecting, selling, and training.
Traditional jobs pay you an hourly wage or a salary and you have virtually zero chance of making that income go up.
The only way to earn more is to take on more hours if you can, put in overtime if you can, or take on another job. Not exactly a liberating way to build income and create potential financial freedom.
Another reason why I love network marketing is that you have the power of residual income. Much like a songwriter or author gets paid for years to come after the work is done, network marketing allows you to create residual income that keeps coming in month after month, year after year, long after the original work has been done.
What are some of the things that got you involved with network marketing? Feel free to share in the comments, below:
Somebody trying to get you into one of those network marketing pyramid scheme deals? Do you know the difference between the two? Most people don’t.
It really makes sense to learn the difference. To help you understand what network marketing is, we should probably start with what it isn’t.
First, network marketing is not at all like any pyramid scheme. Pyramid schemes are scams similar to chain letters where people just “invest” money based on the promise that other people will put in money that will magically filtrate back to them and somehow, they will get rich. A pyramid scheme is strictly a money game and has no basis in real business. Normally, there is no product involved at all, just money changing hands. Modern-day pyramids may have a product, but it’s clearly there just to disguise the money game.
Network marketing is a legitimate business. This business model has been around for many years and is being used by many businesses, large and small.
Real network marketing is based on providing people with real, legitimate products or services they actually need and want at a fair price.
Some people do actually make a lot of money through network marketing. But it important to recognize that their financial benefit is always the result of their own dedicated efforts (actual work) in building an organization that sells real products and services to real customers.
Pyramid schemes are illegal. They are based on taking advantage of people. For a person to actually make money in a pyramid scheme, someone else has to lose money. Let that sink in.
If the only way for you to win is for someone else to lose,
you are probably looking at a pyramid scheme.
In network marketing, when someone buys your product or service, they should be receiving REAL value. As for income, each person can multiply his or her efforts, skills and talents by helping others be successful.
Network marketing has proven itself as part of the new economy and a preferred way to do business here and around the world.
Network marketing is actually serious business for serious people. Success in network marketing is all about leverage. You can leverage your time and increase the number of hours of work effort on which you can be paid by building a team of other people interested in working together.
You can earn a small income on their efforts. J. Paul Getty, who created one of the world’s greatest fortunes, said: “I would rather make 1 per cent on the efforts of 100 people than 100 per cent on my own efforts.” This simple concept is the cornerstone of many network marketing success stories.
By helping the people you personally sponsor to learn the system and follow your example, you can begin to duplicate yourself. As this process continues, you can create compound growth that can lead to hundreds or even thousands of people coming into your business.
You leverage your time by helping others be successful and earn an income from all their efforts.
There are many reasons to love network marketing. With network marketing, there are no major capital requirements, no or few geographical limitations, no minimum quotas required and no special education or skills needed.
Network marketing is a low-overhead, home-based business that can actually offer many of the tax advantages associated with owning your own business.
Network marketing is a people-to-people business that can significantly expand your circle of friends. It’s a business that enables you to travel and have fun as well as enjoy the lifestyle that extra income can provide.
Hopefully, you now have a better idea of what to look for when you get approached with the next “network marketing pyramid scheme” your friends are talking about.

Online Home Based Business Core: Learning the Basics of Internet technology
Learning the Internet technology is as simple as studying ABC. You need not be a computer technology expert or an Internet technician programmer or professional to handle a business online.
As a beginner, there are basic personal disciplines you have to develop. You also have to learn and understand the basics of Internet technology for you to be more comfortable as you progress.
Let's start learning the Basics
Everything you see online came from nothing. The Internet is a product of human thought and became a reality. Lets me answer some basic questions:
What is the Internet?
The Internet is a global network of computers being connected with a unique Ip (Internet Protocol) address that serves as an abstract object in-between two or more global network of computers. The Internet is a system that carries extensive tons of inter-linked hypertext documents and applications in the World Wide Web (WWW), electronic mails, telephony and peers to peer networks for file sharing, linking and transfer.
What are the required components of the Internet?
The required components of an Internet are:
-Client's electronic device such as a desktop computer, laptop or a smartphone with a software program that can request information from the server;
-The server is a computer on the network that stores content and delivers the content whenever it is requested by the client. There are servers that do special functions like handling database queries, stores and retrieves a user's digital ID to verify authenticity, e-commerce activities such as order entries, credit card processing, shopping cart application, online customer catalogue, searching domain name and hosting servers.
-Internet line which connects to link the Client and Server. An active working Internet line which includes a connection either a DSL line, a cable connection, a WI-FI connection, a modem or router.
-A software program such as Internet browsers and Microsoft program. Clients email addresses are optional but vitally essential for the majority of Internet applications.
Are there Rules to Comply?
Although the Internet seems to be accessible to anyone, the Webmasters, Servers and/or Network Providers have Terms of Agreement which they created and are strictly enforced. You need to comply whenever you want to use their sites else violation of the same would band you to use their services.
Who are the people whom you'll possibly meet online?
You'll meet many people from all walks of economic status in life with diversified reasons or purposes why they are online.
Years back, people need to go to the library to conduct research work using the Encyclopedia and other informative data. The Internet technology made research work easier, faster and you can access trillions of data stored in networks of computers in the comfort of your own home. The information is not as stable since web documents and data are very susceptible to change. It is our responsibility as users to evaluate and verify the information we have to gather for quality and accuracy before using the same as our source. You can even avail the free Encyclopedia in Wikipedia.
The Internet has made shopping easier. You'll possibly meet people who do their shopping online who want to save their time going to shopping malls to purchase their groceries, clothing, school and office supplies and etc. Wise customers or buyers usually compare the prices, shipping added charge and delivery lead time online before they push through their purchases online. Most of them do experience high risks receiving the items they purchased with a lead of time. If they are not satisfied with the item they received, they have the option to return the item back to the seller with the hassle of paying shipping charges added value and refund the proceeds less restock cost incurred by the seller for the lead time. If you also want to escape the hassle of going to shopping malls and would like to save your time, you can do your shopping at ebay.com, amazon.com, etsy.com, tripleclicks.com and any online e-commerce site where the item you need is there.
You'll probably meet job seeks or business opportunity surfers when you join in some social networking sites. The social networking service is an online platform used by people to build their social networks or social relations with other people who share common personal or career interest, activities, backgrounds or real-life connections. Some of the popular social networking sites are facebook.com, google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter and many more. You can find the complete list of social networking sites in Wikipedia.
You can also meet some of the Internet marketing entrepreneurs engaged in various industries online and can be your online competitors if you intend to be one of them in business as you progress online.
Are there scam sites online?
There are a great number of revenue stream programs where you can earn an unlimited amount of money. The Internet can be also a very dangerous place for someone who does not know anything.
You'll find a lot of free online revenue stream programs sold for an initial amount of offer; programs that aren't selling anything of value, networking, pyramid schemed scams, marketing systems sound like "easy to do and earn fast" and effortless ways to earn money concept.
There are sites that sound great but the system does not work for everyone. There are scam sites that prey on the basic instinct of most people who want to earn money quickly to achieve financial freedom the fastest, easiest, laziest and little to no effort way.
You'll never find a "get to rich quick scheme online revenue program" on the Internet wherever you go or search.
To reduce the risks of being a victim of scam sites and save your time, it is wise to LEARN BEFORE YOU GET STARTED.
5 Reasons Why You Should Use A Classified Ad Submission Service To Submit Your Classified Ads
If you're submitting each of your classified ads by hand, you're wasting valuable time and essentially money. Instead, you should consider using a classified ad submission service to submit your ads.
Doing so offers many benefits, from streamlining the process to a greater chance of ad approval.
Here, we'll look over the top 5 reasons why you should use a classified ad submission service.
1. Using A Classified Ad Submission Service Saves You Time!
Classified ads are one of the most effective ways to drive traffic and generate sales.
As opposed to traditional web adverts, visitors who search through classified ads are already
in the buying mentality, meaning they are more likely to purchase something than people just surfing for information.
2. If You Use A Classified Ad Submission Service Your Ads Will Be Automatically Re-Submitted
When They Rotate Off The Advertising Boards
There are several pitfalls many people face when submitting classified ads by hand, one of which is the run-length.
Depending on the service, most classified ads expire after a 30-day period. Once that period is up, you have to manually
renew or create a new ad. For some, this might not be a problem, but when you're forced to manually renew hundreds of ads
every so often, it can become a serious time-consuming issue. A legitimate classified ad submission service will handle
all the renewing necessary to keep your ads running as long as you want.
If you no longer want them to run, you can have the service hold of on that as well.
3. A Classified Ad Submission Service Can Help You Create Valuable Backlinks To Your Site
No one knows the magic formula to achieve top search engine rankings, but most will agree that backlinks are
one of the most important factors. In fact, it's proven that both the number of backlinks and the quality of sites
they come from are two factors which greatly affect your authority and rankings in the search engines.
A classified ad submission service can you achieve this by generating tons of backlinks on high-traffic
classified ad websites. These backlinks will not only generate traffic from shoppers clicking the link,
but your website will naturally rank higher in the search engines, allowing you to see more visitors overall.
4. Classified Ad Submissions Get Your Ad In Front Of Prospects Who Are In A Buying Mentality
No matter what type of product or service your website offers, you need traffic in order to be successful.
There are dozens of way to get traffic to your website, but you'll find most are either too expensive or junk traffic.
Ever see those advertisements from traffic brokers offering 5,000 visitors for $19.99?
Most of these places slam you with low-quality traffic might not even be a real human visitor.
This is why nearly 90% of customers who purchase this type of bulk traffic don't return for another purchase.
5. A Classified Ad Submission Service Is A High-Quality Low-Cost Alternative To Pay Per Click Advertising
Many new advertisers try their luck with Google Adwords. Their pay-per-click (PPC) program is one of the
oldest and best in the industry, serving millions of advertisers worldwide. But while their traffic is high-quality,
it's oftentimes too expensive unless you're a company with deep pockets. Depending on the keyword(s) and position
you're targeting, you could see prices as much as $2 or $3 per click. Rack up a couple of hundred clicks a day and that's
one pricey advertising bill.
A classified ad submission service offers high-quality traffic at a low cost. If you're currently spending
hundred per month on Adwords or other advertising programs, think of the money you'll save by switching to classified ads.
If you would like to submit your classified ad to over 1000's advertising sites per month on auto-pilot see

Food for Your Brain
Just like we need a balanced meal for our bodies, research done by neuropsychiatrists Dan Siegel and David Rock tells us that we need a platter of brain food for a healthy mind. Including the following seven activities for your grey matter in your daily diet, your brain will function much better. Let’s take a look at how we should spend time for our brain.
Your body needs sleep more than you may know. Many of us stay up late, getting just one more thing done, and the morning surprises us. The night flew by too quickly! Your brain takes that rest time to do some housekeeping, integrating what is happening during your waking hours. When you are asleep, your mind and your body are not. They are working together, digesting food, making good use of sugar, and being vigilant against germs, viruses, and other internal varmints. TAKE TIME TO SLEEP!
Instead of telling yourself that you’ll do it tomorrow, get to the gym today. It’s not just your body that benefits from exercise. Believe it or not, Siegel and Rock and other medical professionals will tell you that moving those muscles help to make the brain grow and stay healthier for longer. Go for a swim, take a walk, ride a bike. TAKE TIME TO MOVE!
We live in such a frenzied, quick-paced world that we seldom take the time just to pause. To sit and do nothing. To chill. Just to relax. Too often we think that kicking back is not productive. Not so. Our brains enjoy a little rest with nothing, in particular, to think about. TAKE TIME TO RELAX!
It’s also important to have time on your mind platter to think something through and in a burst of cerebral activity, see it through, to put it into focus. Take a good look at a project you are working on or a solution you are pondering. Figure things out. Don’t let anything interrupt you. Stay put with your phone off and concentrate. TAKE TIME TO CONCENTRATE!
Your brain also enjoys moments of fun and games. Don’t always keep your brain in serious mode, but instead, break away to play a Sudoku game or to colour a picture or to sing a song. Let the child in you emerge and enjoy your youth lived at a later time. Giggle with friends, go to a musical, catch the latest show. TAKE TIME TO HAVE FUN!
Perhaps you don’t have a labyrinth nearby, but take the time to reflect, to go inside and explore your thoughts and feelings about things. By integrating your emotions with your logic, you can better make sense of things. Experiencing your emotions puts colour to your way of thinking, and anchoring your thoughts with the strength of logic helps you to balance your reactions. TAKE TIME TO PONDER!
Get out and talk to people. Enjoy the sunshine. Be in awe of your surroundings. Mother Nature’s best shows are often ignored accidentally. Be grateful for what you have and pass along a compliment to someone else. Do something nice without getting caught. Connecting with others helps you to connect with yourself. TAKE TIME TO BE KIND!
Are you still trying to figure out how to make money online?
I’ve been making my living online for more than 20 years, 18+ of them full time. People are often asking me how to make money online and I am more than happy to help.
This article is designed to cut through the clutter and get down to the realities involved.
The first thing to realize is that you will actually need something to sell.
For many of you, this may seem painfully obvious. But it should be said that I am amazed at the number of people I come across who seem to believe that buying an app or joining a program of some sort is how to make money online.
When this happens, the person that made the money is the person that sold you the app or program.
Now, if the program, app, ebook, etc.. that you bought has good applicable information, you can apply that information and start to make money online.
Here is a bottom line reality for those who want to make money online or offline. Money is actually made when a product or service is sold.
You might as well hear it from me. If you aren’t prepared to embrace the process of selling, you are simply not ready to make money online (or offline). There is no such thing as a product or service that “sells itself”.
There are products and services that are easier to sell than others. But the bare bones reality is that sales are how money is made.
Now, WHAT you sell is a decision that only you can make. It can be products or services that you create. It can be products or services created by someone else.
Many people have developed incredible incomes selling products and services created by someone else.
Salespeople, affiliate marketers, network marketers, and brokers around the world are making fantastic incomes selling products and services created by someone else.
If you are not creating your own products or services, you should be prepared to do some research to find something that works for you. You may find some ideas in my free ebook: 4 Steps To Creating Online Cash Flow
If you have created or found the product or service you want to sell, there are two big steps you absolutely must do if you want to actually make money online.
These are the two steps I am constantly focused on. Anybody I personally know who are making good money online is focused on these two steps on a regular basis.
Any time I run across someone who is struggling to make money online, I ask them about these two steps and they are typically not focused on them at all.
At best, they are sort of playing with these two concepts. Get these two things right and you will be making money online.
Master these two steps and you will be making STRONG money online.
The two steps are:
Driving Quality Traffic
Converting Traffic To Customers
Now, let’s break these two steps down.
Traffic: I am going to upset a few people with my next statement. There is only one kind of traffic: PAID Traffic. Even the so-called “free traffic” some people are excited about has a cost: Your time. Your time is worth money. Settle that right now. You are going to pay for your traffic with either your time, your money, or both.
When I first started out, I spent a lot of time earning “free” traffic. I participated in traffic exchanges. I interacted with others in discussion forums and blogs relevant to my market. (I still do). When I started converting some of that traffic to paying customers, I put some of that money into buying advertising.
Where do I buy advertising? I buy advertising on Facebook, Google, Bing, Yahoo, various classified sites (including this site), etc… The traffic exchanges I participate in all offer paid options. Today, instead of clicking for credits, I pay for advertising.
Where Should This Advertising Take People?
This is a BIG key to your success. DO NOT, under any circumstances, take your visitors directly to a sales page!
These new visitors don’t know you (yet). Why would they be willing to click a link and hand their money to you so quickly?
When someone clicks your ad, they should be taken to your capture page. This is where step 2 (Converting Traffic To Customers) begins.
Your capture page can be simple. It can be complex. I have run fancy capture pages with graphics and videos. I have run plain capture pages with a headline and some ad copy.
The important thing is that you have a capture page ready to go and that it has copy compelling enough to entice your visitors to give you their name and email in exchange for more information.
The way you get them to give you their name and email is to offer them a bribe. This can be free information, a free sample, a consultation, a free report. This is a critical step in the process.
Your capture page needs to be attached to a series of pre-written messages (via your autoresponder) that are designed to help you build rapport and increase the “know, like, and trust” factor with your subscribers.
As your readers begin to feel like they know you, start to like you, and can trust you, they are more likely to buy from you.
Let’s review. You want to make money online. To do that, you are going to drive quality traffic to a capture page. When they fill out the form on your capture page, they will begin receiving your letters. Your letters contain the information you offered them and links to whatever is that you are wanting to sell them.
Because they are on your list, you can actually sell to them again and again.
This article is intended to be an introduction to the basics of making money online. There are more details of fine-tuning and mastering the various steps involved. But the biggest part is to recognize that you truly want to make money online, you want to get started with these two steps.
Feel free to ask any questions you may have. I will be adding more content as we go along to help you better understand how to master these processes to reach your goals.
I am K S Chow from Singapore. I was a public Estate Management staff for over 30 years. During my career, I was a Senior Technical Officer, & now known as Senior Estate Manager, a Senior Property Officer and an Estate Manager working for public and private companies.
For several years I'm also in network marketing. That is a great area for someone like me who likes to meet interesting people from different destinations online and offline. And not just to meet people but to help them to seek financial and time freedom.
That is the best way to help ourselves. I'm a friend in the first place and helps to build teamwork. I became real friends with my team members, and this makes it easier for us to build our online and offline business.
I love fitness and reading, photography and travelling, ... My family and friends are the most important for me.
Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours.

7 Winter Safety Myths about Dogs You Shouldn’t Believe
During the summer months, there’s a lot of talk about the dangers of leaving your dogs out in the summer heat.
However, once winter rolls around, people don’t seem to be as concerned about the temperatures.
Of course, it’s common for people to remind dog owners to bring their pups indoors overnight when the weather drops below freezing. But, other than that, there’s not much to worry about, right?
Sadly, there are a lot of myths about winter weather and dog safety, so today I want to talk about 7 things you simply shouldn’t believe in order to keep your dog safe.
Have you mistakenly believed any of the following myths?
Find out now…
Myth #1 – Fur Protects All Dogs from Cold Weather
All dogs originate from wild dogs. And wild dogs don’t have homes to keep warm in during the winter.
Therefore, all dogs have good enough fur coats to safely stay warm in the winter, right?
The answer is no.
Our dogs’ ancestors were equipped to live in cold-weather climates. And some dogs (such as huskies) are still genetically designed to have fur coats that will keep them warm in harsh climates.
That being said, a large majority of the pet dogs we have now have been bred to have less hair and simply can’t thrive in cold weather anymore.
Some dogs, such as Brittany Spaniels or Chihuahuas, don’t even have a double coat anymore. This puts them at high risk for getting ill or even dying if they are left out in the cold for too long.
If you have a dog that you plan on leaving outside full-time during the winter, you better make sure he is a breed that is designed for cold weather.
Furthermore, even if your dog has the right fur type to live outside in the cold, it’s vital that you provide your pup with a doghouse or some form of shelter he can use to get out of the rain, snow, and wind.
In the wild, a warm den protects wild dogs from freezing to death. Your pup needs the same setup to ensure his safety.
Myth #2 – Dogs Can’t Get Fleas/Ticks in the Winter
A shocking number of people stop using flea and tick meds in the winter to save some money.
After all, it makes sense as most bugs die in the winter, right?
Sadly, this is a very common misconception. In fact, as the temperatures start to drop, bugs often seek refuge in your home to stay warm. And, whether you realize it or not, they can still be lurking around your home, looking for a food source—a.k.a. your dog.
Yes, the likelihood that your dog will get fleas or ticks certainly drops during the winter.
But cold temperatures don’t automatically protect your pet.
To ensure your dog doesn’t end up sick due to ticks and fleas, I recommend you keep an eye on your dog year-round.
If you have reservations about the treatment and want to minimize the usage or save money, then I understand. That’s why I fully recommend you consider using a flea bomb. These bombs will actually kill the flea eggs that are not on your dog and will break the cycle, meaning that you are safe from fleas for longer.
Myth #3 – Dogs Don’t Need Paw Protection for Walks in the Snow
Before we leave the house, we put on shoes. The reason: We need to protect our feet.
However, we don’t often give much thought to our pups’ feet when we take our dogs out of the house because their paws are designed to go barefoot.
For this reason, the idea of putting boots on your dog when it snows might not ever cross your mind.
And, honestly, is it really even necessary?
The answer is yes and no.
Think of it like this…
In the winter, people wear gloves to keep their fingers from getting cold. So if you’re out for a long walk or to play in the snow, you’d put your gloves on to keep your hands warm and safe.
On the flip side, if you’re simply running out for a minute to grab the mail, you probably wouldn’t put gloves on because your hands won’t be exposed to the cold for long.
The same logic applies to dog breeds that aren’t designed to go out in the snow.
If you’re letting your dog out to go pee, it’s probably not necessary for you to protect his feet.
However, if you’re taking your dog on a long walk through the woods and the ground is snowy and cold, doggy boots are important.
While dogs have tough paw pads, some are susceptible to frostbite and should be protected just like you’d wear gloves to protect your fingers.
If your dog spends a lot of time outside in the snow but isn’t built for cold weather, it might be a good idea to invest in a pair of dog booties. You can find them in any pet store!
Myth #4 – It’s Safe for Dogs to Eat Snow
Snow is just solidified rain water, so it’s totally safe for your dog to eat it, right?
The answer to this question really depends on where you live.
If you live in the suburbs or city, it can actually be very dangerous for your dog to eat snow.
The reason: Snow plows and ice trucks often dump dangerous chemicals on the roads to keep them from icing over. These chemicals can then spill over into the snow and make your dog extremely sick if he ingests it.
If you live out in the country where the roads aren’t treated with chemicals, then it’s typically safe for your dog to eat the snow. Just ensure it’s clean snow and there’s no trash hidden in it!
And don’t forget…moderation is key!
In a nutshell…be aware of your surroundings, and use your best judgment. A bowl of clean water is always the best and safest option for your pup.
If your dog really loves eating frozen treats, spoil him with one of these popsicle recipes.
Myth #5 – You Can Leave Your Dog in a Car during the Winter Because It’s Not Hot
Last but not least, a lot of people think it’s okay to leave a dog in a car during the winter months because it’s no longer hot outside.
There are a few flaws in that logic.
First, just because it’s not hot out doesn’t mean that the sun isn’t hot.
All cars are like little mini-greenhouses. As the day goes on, the sun has the power to warm your car up. And depending on the outside temperature, the solar heat in your car can definitely reach temps that aren’t safe for your pup.
Second, it’s possible that it could get too cold in your car—especially on a cloudy day.
If your heat is not running and you leave your dog out in your car for too long, he might get dangerously cold.
Finally, cars aren’t always the safest places for dogs, regardless of the temperature. For example, someone could easily steal your pup from your car, or your dog could get into something that could hurt him when left alone.
If you’re running a quick errand like dropping a check off at the bank, then your pup should be fine in your car. However, if you’re going to be away from your dog for more than 15 minutes or if you are going to be parked in the full sunshine, it’s best to just leave your dog at home.
Myth #6 – Dogs Can Be Left Outdoors As Long As They Are in a Kennel
Leaving your dog outside without protection is bad. But leaving a dog outside in freezing weather with access to a kennel is okay, right?
Well…the answer is sort of yes and no.
There are some thick-coated dogs, such as huskies, that can be left outside as long as they have a place where they can get out of the rain/wind/snow.
However, there are also tons of other breeds—like Chihuahuas or Labs—that just don’t have the right coat types for staying warm in freezing temperatures.
Also, do your research, and talk to your vet before leaving your dog outside overnight—even if you have a kennel.
Myth #7 – Dogs Only Need a Blanket on the Floor to Stay Warm and Comfortable
Yes, there are some dogs that have thick coats and prefer sleeping on hard, cold surfaces such as hardwood floors or tile.
However, many—if not most—dogs would prefer a comfy, cozy dog bed.
First, a thick dog bed can help keep a dog warm and cozy on freezing days.
Second, much like humans, cold weather can cause a dog’s joint pain to flare up or make a dog more stiff. For this reason, it’s nice to give a dog the option to lay somewhere soft and warm up.
Personally, my dogs love cozying up with a warm alpaca blanket.
Take a peek below at where my dogs sleep!
While a blanket is better than nothing, a dog bed is always a nice treat for dogs who want to stay warm and cozy in the winter—especially if you don’t let your dog on the furniture.
You came online to earn a part-time or full-time income, right, and I would be willing to bet that you also, hoped, in the back of your mind, that you could have FUN while earning, too.
C'mon, be serious, I'm sure you thought about that a bit, right? At least you didn't plan on your online business being daily drudgery that was almost as bad as a J.O.B. and, worse yet, didn't pay you a regular salary.
I was in the same boat, felt the same emotions, fears, and frustrations until I found an advertising and income HOME.
Yep, a trusted community where I could EARN (for referrals and performing simple tasks) that also gave me built-in advertising for my main program.
It was manna from heaven, let me tell you!
And what I found, that was truly fascinating, was that every time I uncovered a new and rewarding feature, I realized it was designed to create more money and better advertising results for members.
I was truly blown away, I think you'll agree, too, as we dive into some details about this new service.
First and foremost, it is providing me a way that I can EARN EVERY DAY by performing simple tasks. Yes, I have a primary business to build but I also need to earn consistent money while building my main business and I'm sure you are in the same boat and so is your team.
But, what's great, is that I can earn Free Advertising AND Cold Hard Cash Every Day by performing simple tasks just a few minutes a day.
I'm sure that you have heard of Traffic Exchanges which are a VERY Popular way for experienced marketers and "newbies" alike to gain exposure for their program at a very low (or even free) cost.
Well, I can tell you that I have found a First of It's Kind Traffic Exchange, just recently launched by Frank Bauer and Clinton Clark that is truly a Revolutionary LEAP Forward in Advertising and Income.
Infinity Traffic Boost ("ITB") allows you to earn traffic credits AND revenue share cash DAILY merely by spending a few minutes surfing other websites.
What's so cool, too, is that ITB is the world's first Truly Legal and Sustainable Revenue Share Traffic Exchange that allows you to purchase points from as low as $3.93 to as high as $3,888.68. Yep! There is something for everyone and EVERYONE can benefit from both the little and the big purchases.
I want to talk to you about the sustainable revenue share in a minute, but I first want to explain what blew me away with the compensation plan - an idea that has been a long time in coming in this industry - pay every member for every sale they make regardless of their membership level!
Think about it, if members on a low budget can earn big commissions, they will probably put a bit more effort into marketing, right?
And, if the Big Players, well-financed marketers, can earn even BIGGER Commissions, they'll be quite happy to market, too, right (I mean, c'mon, a $2,705.17 commission - with potential leverage - HAS to be appealing, right?)
That's what I found at Infinity Traffic Boost - ALL Members earn a MINIMUM of 30% commission on all sales they generate or get passed to them (ooooh, ANOTHER Hidden benefit!) and as much as 80%. That's real money!
And why is this important to you, why should you care about OTHER People making money?
Well, it's very simple, it's because the more people who are promoting ITB the more "eyeballs" will be seeing YOUR ads and providing YOU with more value and more exposure for your main program.
But, wait, it gets better, too (See, I told you that as I "peeled the onion" here at ITB the better and better it got!).
Every time there is an advertising purchase made in Infinity Traffic Boost 10% of the purchase price is allocated to the Surfers Rewards Pool. These Surfers Rewards are released to the qualifying participants in a consistent fashion creating reliable and income potential for participants. PLUS, that 10% is enhanced by even MORE admin contributions when a sale is made by a member who earns 30% instead of the max 80%.
So, you can see, that by merely surfing a few sites a day ITB members can earn consistent cash that could grow to be very sustainable and reliable and is further enhanced by purchasing additional advertising.
As members purchase larger and larger advertising packages they get more advertising credits to advertise their main program and they are able to EARN more from Referrals and SURF More to earn more in the Surfers Rewards Pool! (See what I told you... Everything they do at ITB is designed to generate more money and more (better) traffic for members!)
Should we dig a bit deeper into the compensation plan, peel that onion just a bit more?
Two things that I want to wrap up with here (1) Leverage and (2) Residual Income.
First, the leverage... ITB has created an INCREDIBLE compensation plan that rewards you for your referral efforts so you want to tell your friends about ITB right away. You'll earn 30% - 80% of their purchase of any package level equal to or one price point higher than what you have purchased as long as you have met the minimal surfing requirements.
But, here's where the Leverage kicks in (stay with me, it gets good here!)... The second sale you make at each of the purchase price points is paid UP to your sponsor or qualifying sponsor. Watch -- That means that YOU'LL be receiving the second sale from each of your direct referrals to infinity width and in some cases that can go to infinity depth!
NOTE: Another FASCINATING feature with ITB is that, while there are 11 price points, you do NOT have to purchase each package in ascending order. Nope... rather, when you purchase advertising credits at a particular price point you'll be able to earn boosted (80%) commissions one level HIGHER (as noted above) plus ALL the lower levels. Plus you earn 30% commissions on all remaining packages.
Wow, that is a HUGE incentive to purchase up a few levels, don't you think? Having the ability to earn boosted commissions on multiple levels by purchasing only on one? Wow! (Of course, always stay within your budget, but invest in and believe in yourself. ITB is here to help you earn, build and succeed!)
Now, the final piece to this fantastic puzzle (or should we say this dwindling onion as we peel it? LOL) and that final piece is RESIDUAL Income!
Check this out... When you purchase an advertising credits package in Infinity Traffic Boost you are immediately "Purchase Boost Activated" for 30 days to 2 years. This means you are now positioned to earn up to 80% commissions on that level, one level above and all purchase levels below for 30 days to 2 years. To continue to earn at that purchase level after 30 days to 2 years, you'll need to purchase another advertising credits package.
What ITB has created is an incredible opportunity to earn RECURRING Income without the fear and hassle of setting up a subscription payment. If you are earning from your efforts (surfing OR referrals) you'll surely want to keep referral and, here's the good part, so will YOUR Referrals and "Up" sales!
How cool is that?
So, I hope you can now see why I am so very excited about Infinity Traffic Boost. I know that ITB has already made me a nice consistent income and provided me with excellent exposure for my main program.
The Community at Infinity Traffic Boost is intelligent, active and engaged which is exactly the type of audience you want to view your ads, right?
I would encourage you to check out ITB now, join free and have a look around. Yes, as noted above you CAN earn as a free member and you CAN earn without referrals.
But WOW, Can you earn and benefit a LOT more as a paid member - Check it out today and feel free to post here any questions or comments that you may have!
Oh, and if you are wondering, you can purchase into ITB with Payeer, Earnings, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin or other Altcoin, Commissions on sales with Earnings, in Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin or other Altcoin are paid INSTANTLY Via Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, or Litecoin, and Surfing Rewards are paid out on demand, also via Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, or Litecoin.

I once spent all the money in my pocket on a raffle because I wanted the chance to win a big bottle of merlot. I don’t even like merlot that much, but the value of the bottle seemed so much greater than the value of my pocket change, and my time, that I couldn’t resist at least attempting to win.
I know I sound like a less than a stable person but bear with me, because psychology suggests that I’m not alone. Human nature is – for better or worse – filled with one resounding issue: greed. In other words, we all want to have as much stuff as we can possibly get our hands on. If there’s a chance to win something expensive for free, then you can bet we’re going to grab it with both hands.
At Traffic for Me, we know what it takes to grow a successful email campaign. We know exactly what you need to do to get all of the traffic that you need to run an incredible business, and we also know that you need to keep that traffic engaged if you want some great conversion ratios. People need to be entertained if they’re going to stick around.
Running a competition for your business is one of the best ways to attract a list of targeted leads straight to your brand. That’s because promotions and competitions are fun, exciting, and easy to understanding. Sort of like the gladiatorial games, except (hopefully) no one gets eaten by tigers.
While many marketers consider running contests for sales, branding, and more, an option that’s often overlooked involves using competitions to grow your email list. Created correctly, contests can help you to fill your funnel with excited leads, which makes you and them happy at the same time.
Step 1: Choose your Poison
You can’t run a competition from your mom’s basement. Well – you can, but few people are really going to enter.
The first step in using competitions to engage your email list is choosing the perfect platform. Shop around and look at the different options that are available to you, making sure that they check off all the boxes that are important to you and your customers. For instance, a good competition platform should provide:
• Great functionality and lots of flexibility to play with new ideas.
• Options to tally entries and watch over campaign goals.
• Mobile responsivity so that you can access your campaign and make changes wherever you are.
• Clear and straightforward systems that make it easy to use for your target customers.
The goals that you want to achieve with your contest, and the type of contest you’re running, will have a direct impact on which features are the most important to you when you’re searching for a useful way to connect with your audience. However, if there’s one rule of thumb that all contest platforms should follow, it’s that they should all have access to social media.
Being able to share “I just entered to win a free iPad with “____” means that your customers can not only share their excitement with their social following, but do some of your advertising for you. After all, your campaigns are far more likely to go viral if everyone shares their entry with others. Imagine you get 100 entrants into your competition, and they share with 10 friends, and those 10 friends share with 5 friends, and so on.
If your aim is to engage your email marketing list, try using the following features:
• Share via email
• Share via Facebook
• Share on Twitter
• Share on LinkedIn
Step 2: Choose the Rules of your Contest
Rules are boring – but they have a part to play in any competition. After all, everyone can’t be a winner, right?
Once you’ve picked a platform that has all of the features you need to run a kick-ass competition, it’ll be time to put your contest wheels in motion. This means making a few more decisions about what you’re trying to achieve with competitive engagement. For instance, ask yourself:
1. How many winners are there going to be?
2. How long am I going to run this competition for?
3. What are the prizes for the top winners – and runners-up?
4. How am I going to advertise this competition to people beyond my mail list?
Remember to think carefully about the goals you’re trying to achieve in the long run and to make decisions about your competitions from there. For instance, if you’re hoping to create 100 leads from your contest, and you know that your general visit-to-lead ratio is around 20%, then you’re going to need around 500 visits to your content.
From there, you can come to us at T4Me for help with boosting your traffic while you’re looking for other ways to get more people excited about what you’re sharing. Just remember that outlining your goals will help to keep your expectations realistic and give you the insight that you need to achieve better things for your business.
Furthermore, choosing the rules and deciding the ideal outcomes for your contest in advance will give you a good benchmark to work towards when it comes to deciding what success will look like in your competition.
Step 3: Make your Dreams Come True
Here’s the part you’ve been waiting for – actually making your contest happen.
Turning your competition from a dream into a reality means thinking carefully about how you’re going to promote your efforts, get entries, and make decisions about who wins and who loses. To generate initial interest, you can buy additional traffic while hitting your social media accounts and your homepage with notices that something big is in the works.
You can also go ahead and blog about your upcoming attraction, put together some Pinterest boards, and share other content to make the competition out as a big a deal as possible. Just make sure that you’re actually creating something that’s worth getting excited about. There’s not much point in raving about a competition when the grand prize is a packet of marshmallow treats.
Remember that while you’re promoting, you’ll also need to watch the temperature of your contest and evaluate how it’s performing. Determine whether your promotions are bringing in the attention that you want and whether specific platforms are more beneficial to your goals than others. You might also want to ask yourself whether your technology is working the way that you’d expect and whether you’re getting more engagement overall.
Analyzing the results of your competition as regularly as possible will help you to get an insight into whether you’re actually making a difference with your campaign. Just remember that you can’t necessarily pull out and tell your followers that it was all a joke if you don’t get the incredible results you were looking for.
Even if you wanted 1000 people to get involved, and only 100 people did, you still need to pick a winner or risk being marked out as a flakey, untrustworthy company for all of the time.
You don’t want to be THAT guy.
Step 4: Pick your Winners – and Make a Big Deal out of Them
Finally, once all your entries are in, it’s up to you to select your winners and inform them that they’re the lucky recipients of…whatever it was you were offering.
If your competition platform lets you select winners at random, then you should probably do that unless your contest rules require you to do something different. Once you’ve picked your winners, email them and let them know, then get them to share their experience on Facebook, Twitter, and any other social platform you can think of.
You can always follow up with the winners of your campaign at a later time to prompt more free promotion by interviewing them about how they like their prize and getting them to send pictures in that you can share across your email and social campaigns in the future. Sometimes, winners will happily share the story about their win with the world – and this is great press for you.
Remember, there are 1.79 billion active users on Facebook every month. That’s nearly 2 billion people that can read your story and learn more about your brand. Sharing the results of the “big win” not only helps to get people more excited the next time you run a competition, but it generates more content for you and builds your authenticity. After all, the last thing you want is for all of your non-winners to think that you didn’t really give anyone the grand prize.
A Couple of Golden Rules to Keep in Mind
Before you run off to get your competition going, remember that there are a few extra factors to be aware of if you want to run a killer contest campaign. For example:
Your prizes need to be relevant to what your company does. In other words – if you’re a shoe shop, then you can’t offer prizes that are for free flowers or free wax. No one will know what the heck is going on and you won’t be promoting yourself effectively.
Set big goals to help you keep on track. The more you can track your journey to success with little benchmarks and smaller goals, the more chances you have of seeing what goes right – and what goes wrong with your competition campaign. This means that you’ll be better prepared next time around.
Check rules and regulations – Before you get your competition started, remember to check up with the legal department in your business for tips on laying out your terms and conditions.
Remember, a quick competition might seem simple, but it’s one of the best ways to keep your traffic engaged and grow your following on a more intimate level!

3 Tips to Teach Your Child How to Read
By: ChildrenLearningReading.com https://bit.ly/2zcezcc
Learning to read at a young age is important for the development of the child. It helps them develop a better understanding of their surroundings, allows them to gather information from printed materials, and provides them with a wonderful source of entertainment when they read stories and rhymes. Children develop at different rates, and some children will develop reading skills quicker than other children; however, what's important is that as the parent, you are keenly aware of your child's maturity and reading level to provide them with appropriate books and activities to help them improve.
As parents, you are the most important teacher for your children. You will introduce your child to books and reading. Below we have some tips to help you teach your child to read.
Teach Your Child How to Read Tip #1
Teach your child alphabet letters and sounds at the same time. Studies have shown that children learn best when they are taught the letter names and letter sounds at the same time. In one study, 58 preschool children were randomly assigned to receive instructions in letter names and sounds, letter sound only, or numbers (control group). The results of this study are consistent with past research results in that it found children receiving letter name and sound instruction was most likely to learn the sounds of letters whose names included cues to their sounds. 
When teaching your child the letter sounds, have them slowly trace the letter, while saying the sound of the letter at the same time. For example, if you were teaching your child the letter "A", you would say:
"The letter A makes the /A/ (ah) sound."
Then have your child say the /A/ sound while tracing the letter with his or her index finger.
Teaching a Child How to Read Tip #2
When teaching your child to read, always emphasize with them that the proper reading order should be from left to right, and top to bottom. To adults, this may seem so basic that anyone should know it. However, our children are not born with the knowledge that printed text should be read from left to right and top to bottom, and this is why you'll sometimes see children reading from right to left instead - because they were never explicitly taught to read from left to right. When teaching your child how to read, always emphasize this point with them.
Teach Your Child How to Read Tip #3
Teach final consonant blends first. Teaching words such "at" and "and" can lead your child directly to learning words that rhyme with these. For example, for "at", you can have:
For "and", you can have these rhyming words:
and so on...
You can start teaching blends once your child has learned the sounds of some consonants and short vowel sounds. You don't need to wait until your child has mastered the sounds of all the letters before teaching blends.
Learning to read is a long process, but it doesn't have to be a difficult process. Broken down into intuitive and logical steps, a child as young as two years old can learn to read, and older children can accomplish even more.

Have you ever wondered how people make money online?
Well... when you join CashJuice you'll find a simple 3 step plan that anyone can follow.
There's no magic, no hype and you don't have to pay, it's completely free!
Simple click on the link below and get started in 5 minutes.
A Glimmer of Light…
“My mind was completely broken. And, in those dark days, I couldn’t see a way out. Hearing the Word of God was growing my faith, and it was amazing. Through that, I found healing. When I had nowhere else to go, He showed up in a real way.”
The Bible offers hope and wisdom for every challenge we face, no matter how big it seems (or how small). And, when we listen to God’s Word every day, He can completely transform our lives.
Hearing the Healing: A YouVersion Story
In the video above, see how this simple practice led to spiritual, physical, and emotional healing for one veteran and his family, as he journeyed through Post-Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury.
To help you to better understand how building a list works and how it can make you a fortune, we're going to ask you to think back and recall what compelled you to enter your name and email address into the Easy Leads And Cash system?
There are many reasons why you may have chosen to do that, but did you know that on average only 7 people per 100 will do that?
Think that through for a moment, on average only 7 out of every hundred people that visit the Easy Leads And Cash system website will enter their name and email address in the form. That's a pretty scary statistic, especially if this is the first time that you have been told 'the truth' about mailing lists. This is why people who send a few emails to friends and family and think they have done enough are unlikely to succeed.
Don't think for a moment that these statistics are exclusive to mailing list marketing, it's much worse with traditional direct marketing with only 3 in 1,000 taking action from a flyer for example.
There's good news here too though because you are not looking for the 93 people who do nothing, you are looking for the 7 people who do!
The key reason that anyone joins any mailing list and becomes a prospect is always the same. They join a list because they are looking for a solution to a problem. In the case of the Easy Leads And Cash system we offer a solution to not one, but two of the biggest problems facing any online entrepreneur.
How to build a list
How to make a fortune
When you offer a credible solution to a prospect's problems you immediately have their attention. Solve two problems at once and you really have their attention.
With the Easy Leads And Cash system, we have created everything for you so that you do not have to understand anything about the setup process or think about what to write to your prospects. It's done in this way to allow you to focus on the most important part which is simply sharing your personal Easy Leads And Cash link with as many people as possible.
Even if you are new to the Internet and network marketing I'm sure you've heard the phrase "it's a numbers game" but you may not understand how the numbers work. Understanding just the basics of this is the KEY to your success. We personally spent years in the wilderness before we finally realized what we are about to share with you, and now that we know this stuff, it's so obvious that we feel a bit stupid admitting that it took us years to figure this out the hard way!
When a company places a 30 second commercial on TV it doesn't matter if the product is a bag of M&M's that sells for less than $1 or a Mercedes Benz at $100,000 the advertiser pays the same spot rate for the 30 seconds of airtime. Have you ever wondered how they can afford to do that? How is it possible that a single advert can sell enough M&M's to pay the cost of that advert and make a profit?
The simple answer is that it doesn't. A 30-second M&M advert on TV does not get 100,000 people to jump off their seat and immediately go out and buy M&M's. The reality is that if 100,000 people saw an M&M advert then some of them will do just that but most of them will do nothing immediately, it may not even register that they just watched an M&M advert but the next time they are shopping, statistically they are now more likely to buy M&M's because they are brand aware.
This is why you see and hear the exact same adverts day after day on TV and radio. Advertising agencies have a phrase for this, it's "Repetition builds Reputation" in other words, the more time you show people an advert the more likely it becomes that they will trust you and become a customer. This is why it does not matter how many times or how many people advertise the Easy Leads And Cash system or how many times an individual sees an Easy Leads And Cash ad, one day when the time is right for 'them' they will click the link and join. In just the same way that when the M&M ad ran on TV 'some' of the people did actually get out of their chairs and into their cars to buy a bag of M&M's.
Building a list and making money online is a pure numbers game. If five people click your ad and join your list and from that seven none of them take an action you have simply found the wrong seven people. The answer to this problem is not to quit and stop sharing your links, that would simply result in fewer people seeing your ad and that's 'really' not going to work. The answer is to share your link with MORE people and never quit, keep promoting until you have found enough action takers (people just like you) and then the growth in your team becomes exponentially and you cannot stop it.
