Facebook Group Offers Networking Opportunity

29 07 2009

I am pleased to introduce a new Facebook group: 

Living a Life of Purpose and Passion


This group serves as a community to provide ideas and resources to people who may be trying to align their lives with their true purpose and in the process living out their passions. Many people at some point or another get so wrapped up in their comfortable, steady job that they forget what is possible. I have been blessed and have had my eyes opened to the potential that exists when one is truly living their life’s purpose. Abundance and success follow when one is in tune with their passions!

This group is a forum for networking, sharing books, websites, ideas, etc. regarding the path to finding your life’s purpose. Whether you are looking for a business or just a good book please feel free to join the conversation. I hope that this group can be a source of inspiration and support for those individuals determined to align their life with their purpose and passions.


Some of you that join this group may be ready for serious, immediate changes in your life to connect with your purpose and start living out your passions. If you are ready to overcome your self-limiting beliefs and become an empowered and goal-oriented force in the business world I have the income-vehicle for you. If I told you that a six-figure income in the first year is realistic, and that setting your own schedule was normal, would you consider a home-based business?

If you are interested, visit – http://www.lifeofpurposeandpassion.com
You can also check out my blog – http://www.lifeofpurposeandpassion.wordpress.com


This group is being created for positive networking and is NOT intended to be used as a shameless advertising vehicle, so please be tactful if you are looking to share your services with others.

Please invite all of your friends who you feel would be a great addition to this group who are interested in aligning themselves with their life’s purpose and passions!


Finding Freedom In Owning Your Own Business

28 07 2009

In order to truly find freedom in your life, you must first be in control of your situation. The only way in which I have found and have heard experts speak on the topic is to become an entrepreneur. Now many of you may be saying, “How does a person open a business in this down economy?” The answer is to think outside the box. Today, Internet businesses are booming as traditional businesses in some genres are struggling. Traditional business owners may find themselves stressed out personally and financially over the continuous flow of bills to pay despite declining work loads. The home based Internet business sector is expanding in today’s economy and the entrepreneurs of these businesses are experiencing financial and time freedom. When you discover a home based Internet business opportunity that has been properly created, you will also find individual entrepreneurs who are experiencing work loads of about 30 hours full time, and annual incomes of multiple 6 and even 7 figures.

Home based business entrepreneurs can truly create freedom for themselves and their families. They are able to set their own work hours, put in the amount of effort they wish to generate the income they desire, and work from their home or anywhere else they choose. Speaking of working from wherever you choose, I recently went on a family vacation to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. outer banksWhile my husband and various family members took off an entire week of vacation time from work to come, I had to ask no one for permission to leave. I was able to occasionally check my emails, contact leads, and work as much or as little as I chose around beach and pool time. It was truly a stress-free vacation for me as I looked forward to coming home to continue working my business as opposed to dreading everything that had to be done upon my return.

Although, I wish it wasn’t so, the only true security net in corporate America today is to be self-employed. Using your creativity and perseverance you can become a successful home based Internet business owner. These businesses require no previous knowledge, you can begin earning money your first day, and learn the necessary information as you go, growing your business at whatever pace you choose. Isn’t it about time you really lead a life of freedom? Home based internet businesses are not too good to be true, but if anyone tells you making millions overnight is a piece of cake, they are lying to you. Begin the process of living life on your own terms financially, personally, and with time freedom today by considering a home based Internet business.

Great Vacation!

27 07 2009

Excuse my absence lately! I just returned from a family vacation in the beautiful Outer Banks, North Carolina. We rented a massive house. There were 20 of us total. We were right on the beach and the house had it’s own beautiful pool so needless to say I was a little waterlogged by the end of the week. It was a great time I would suggest Corolla/Duck to anyone. The best restaurant we actually found was a pizza place in a shopping center called Timbuck II. Unfortunately because the restaurants are seasonal there isn’t much fine dining, at least that we found. But there are lots of place where you can order out such as a steamed seafood place where you pick up the seafood and then just steam it on your own oven. Good seafood to be found if you look! The beach was beautiful, weather was gorgeous! I came back with a nice suntan! 🙂 If anyone is looking for a great family-type vacation destination the Outer Banks were quite enjoyable. Hope everyone had a great weekend! I’m looking forward to a prosperous week!me and ry N.C.

The Empowered Woman

The Empowered Woman — By Sonny Carroll

empowered woman

The Empowered Woman, she moves through the world
with a sense of confidence and grace.
Her once reckless spirit now tempered by wisdom.
Quietly, yet firmly, she speaks her truth without doubt or hesitation
and the life she leads is of her own creation.

She now understands what it means to live and let live.
How much to ask for herself and how much to give.
She has a strong, yet generous heart
and the inner beauty she emanates truly sets her apart.
Like the mythical Phoenix,
she has risen from the ashes and soared to a new plane of existence,
unfettered by the things that once that posed such resistance.

Her senses now heightened, she sees everything so clearly.
She hears the wind rustling through the trees;
beckoning her to live the dreams she holds so dearly.
She feels the softness of her hands
and muses at the strength that they possess.
Her needs and desires she has learned to express.
She has tasted the bitter and savored the sweet fruits of life,
overcome adversity and pushed past heartache and strife.

And the one thing she never understood,
she now knows to be true,
it all begins and ends with you.

The Quickest Way To Living With Abundance and Prosperity

2 07 2009

What does it mean to have abundance and prosperity in your life? Certainly it may have to do with the money in your bank account, but that’s not all. Having prosperity and abundance refers to the opportunities that you feel are all around you, the relationships and family members, and the knowledge in your life. Prosperity and abundance come when you are using your talents and gifts to help others by living out your true purpose in life.

The Abundance Mentality, according to Stephen R. Covey is, “the paradigm that there is plenty out there for everybody.” There is an unlimited supply for all in the universe. Think of it as a cup overflowing with water. If you live according to the abundance mentality you are happy for people when they succeed, and look it as an opportunity to learn from them and reach that level yourself. The Scarcity Mentality is the opposite. If someone is living in scarcity they may be jealous of successful people, thinking these people took their opportunity for a raise, or to move up in their company. Truly successful people are those living in abundance which Covey says, “results in the sharing of prestige, of recognition, of profits… It opens possibilities, options…and creativity.”

Feelings of abundance and prosperity apply to money as well. When you can believe that there is plenty of money in the world to go around as opposed to believing that money is hard to earn and attain, you will see changes in your financial situation occur. To attain wealth, one must believe that there is plenty of it in the world, not just a little bit. True prosperity is not only having enough money to live a life of freedom (after all, more money = more options) but knowing how to use that money to benefit others. Try giving some away, the more you give the more you get. Being stingy with your money takes you right back to the scarcity mentality but at the same time blowing it all is frivolous and disrespectful of it. You need to find a happy medium and place top priority on that, which is of utmost importance, the relationships in your life.

Once you get very clear on exactly what your life would look like if you believed you were living in abundance and prosperity, begin feeling grateful for it. Feel grateful for those things in your life as if they were already there. Gratitude puts the Law of Attraction in an accelerated state and you will begin to see abundance and prosperity occur in your life.Abundance

As you begin considering the abundance mentality, remember that the universe is limitless. It is only we humans that put restraints on what is possible. The sooner you realize that the whole universe is interconnected and start putting out those positive vibrations of abundance, the sooner more positive vibrations will find their way into your life. Remember, the more you think with a scarcity mentality, the more scarcity you will attract into your life. The more you think with an abundance mentality, the more abundant and prosperous your life will seem.

Starting A Home Based Business – 5 Key Ingredients You Must Have

2 07 2009

When deciding which home based business company to join there are several key ingredients that you must have if you expect to experience success. If the company you are considering does not have these key ingredients, don’t stop your search quite yet. I’m sure that anyone who is considering a home based-business has already taken into consideration that there is only a small percentage of people who ever make really serious money. By serious, I’m referring to upwards of 15K per month. There are a few reasons why this is the case. Simply put, the perseverance and mind set of the individual play a huge role, and just as importantly, do they have a quality company behind their business with the key ingredients to success? Here are a few tips which will help you determine if a home-based business is right for you, and if so, does the company you are investigating contain the elements necessary for success?

1.Would Joining for Free Really Make You Feel Comfortable?

If you are considering a company with hopes of making a six-figure income joining for free should make you nervous. WHY? One reason is because the owners of a legitimate home based business where making serious money is a real possibility are not going to waste their time training people that aren’t really vested in the opportunity. Secondly, what does FREE say about the quality of the product and company itself? Not much in my opinion. So how much can you expect to invest to get started with a quality home-based business company? I would say between $1,500 and $3,000, a small price to pay for a potential six-figure income. You should choose a company that allows you to start making money from day one. If the company you are considering requires “training sales” or “pass up” sales before you make any money, you can do better because there are companies that do not require this. One last tip, whatever company you do choose should offer a relatively quick return on your investment. It should not take you years to make up your initial cost. Just a few sales should do the trick.

2. Finding the Right Company and Mentor

If you have been doing any serious research, you probably know that many people are staying away from MLM businesses these days. The main reasons are that they usually only offer small profits while requiring a lot of time to build a downline and they usually have high failure rates. I suggest you find a company with a Top Tier Direct Sales system in place. Top Tier Direct Sales companies often allow for larger commissions anywhere between 1 and 15K per sale!

Equally as important as the right company is a mentor that will work with you to achieve your personal and financial goals. You must be able to trust this person and feel like they are there for you. You want a leader who is having success in the business themselves and can show you the step-by-step process to get to that level. They should be able to show you marketing techniques and tools to help you find success.

3. Training Must Be In Place

Training is not something you should have to do yourself over and over with each new business partner. There should be training provided by the company itself so that you can spend your valuable time marketing and bringing on more potential associates. Company trainings could include phone calls, webinars, and video tutorials on topics such as marketing and ways to improve your business. While you will do some training of your associates, you shouldn’t be expected to do it all. The company should have top-notch trained professionals in the various areas of home-based businesses providing daily trainings.

4. Starting Part-Time with a Long-Time Vision

Any company you are considering should allow you to make money from home on a part-time basis. It is understandable that you cannot drop everything and dive in to this new endeavor full-time. You should however, be able to make money on a part-time basis until you can replace your current income and work from home full-time. It is your decision, and only yours as to when you are ready to tackle this new career on a full-time basis. While you may want to start slowly, make sure the company and its founders have a long term vision. Check to make this company has been around for awhile and has a plan in place to stay around for awhile.

5. No Cold Calling or Selling

You may be wondering, what do I mean no selling? How will I make any money if there is no selling? Competent companies have systems in place that do most of the actual selling and explaining of the business for you. This is sometimes referred to as duplication. Having a system that you can tap potential customers into which will do most of the selling for you, freeing up your time to be expanding your marketing and talking to other prospects is critical. Cold calling is not necessary. The company you choose should have a marketing system in place which brings interested persons to you, not visa versa. By following specific marketing techniques and simply having a conversation to see if your business is the right fit for the interested lead, you can eliminate any stress over the whole idea of selling. You shouldn’t have to push your product, its quality should stand for itself and your job is just to simply make others aware of this opportunity.

Last but not least, enjoy what you do! You should be passionate, exuberant, and supportive of the company you choose. If you are not excited about the products and business opportunity you are offering, how can you expect others to be excited? Providing that you have joined the right company you will experience the freedom to work from home, be your own boss, and be in control of your own income! How much better does it get? Have fun and be passionate about your business! Loving what you do and having success go hand in hand.
