These are very special messages to the Subscribers of this “ROAD TO FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE” Blog!

My first message is to “THANK YOU VERY MUCH” for your interest and subscribing to one of my favorite activities.

I thank you sincerely for your receiving all publication releases as well as your excellent acceptance of the content! From a small business owner viewpoint this blog is a major testimonial for a Blog created using “Attraction Marketing” and “Content Marketing” techniques, as the initial post was made only (4) years ago and has achieved a substantial readership. Thanks to Ann Seig for Attraction Marketing techniques and Ty Tribble for Blogging techniques.  To me it says that many businesses, individuals and other entities can benefit by providing their own Blog, especially “small businesses”.

American Business is Overwhelmingly Small Business… “in the U.S. Firms with fewer than 500 workers accounted for 99.7 percent of those businesses, and businesses with less than 20 workers made up 89.6 percent.” Further information from this same study reveals the following “

• 51.6 percent of businesses were operated primarily from someone’s home.

• 23.8 percent of employer firms operated out of a home.

• 62.9 percent of non-employer businesses were home-based.

Creating blogs and advertising my business via “attraction marketing techniques” gives me sincere pleasure and satisfaction and has allowed me to develop my personal “Mission Statement”… and that is “to inform as many as possible as to how to improve their health and longevity, increase their wealth, and to have greater peace of mind.”

 

Health
Rainbow Falls

And now to share the special and vital information for everyone that I have learned during the last several months. Even with significant college study in pharmacy, exact sciences and business marketing and management I never encountered any meaningful information on the subject of “ionized, alkalized, restructured, micro clustered, antioxidant water” . I believe that it would have changed my life significantly both health-wise and financially had I known this information many years ago. What I heard about water was that I should drink about eight 8-ounce glasses each day with no mention as to timing, type, or properties. That was left up to the advertisers in the tv and media industry.

The total nominal spending on medicines in the U.S. in 2014 was reported at $425 billion and the U.S. exports of biomedicals to the foreign markets at some $47 billion. Sales of bottled water in the U.S. in 2014 were estimated at about $13 billion.

I am so very pleased to know this now as I still have some time to do something about what I have learned and to share it with my family, friends and truly everyone that will listen…it is that important…in my opinion. What amazes me about sharing this information is the number of people with “closed minds”.. It is like many people have a preconceived notion that unless you hear and see something on tv or the mainstream news media…or from their medical doctors…that it can’t be true. And the most serious phobia by the uninformed is that if a product is marketed by and individual other than a store-front or retail store that you see on TV that it must be a scam. To the contrary, you probably benefit more from direct selling than by the entire retail chain sharing their 5-10% cut to take products to market. Some people harbour preconceived notions that direct sellers are mostly scammer. How uninformed they really are with attitudes like this.

I wonder if these same people who resist information ask their doctor or the TV people if virtually all sodas, bottled water, tap water  and energy drinks are good for them before drinking them? These people would be amazed at what they are drinking to hydrate their bodies. No wonder we have so much obesity, illness, cancer, and other serious illnesses. Here is a list of settlements brought by our Federal and State governments against the pharmaceutical companies…and U.S. Citizens buy about two-thirds of prescription drugs sold in the world…

List of largest pharmaceutical settlements – Wikipedia

My opinions are that we are bombarding our bodies with more than 100,000 inorganic chemicals internally and externally. A very smart man that came up with Newton’s Laws concluded…”for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”.  Could it be that all of the wonderful chemicals that we spray on ourselves, wash our clothes with,  wash our dishes and bodies with, spray our foods with to protect them from insects and disease, injecting into our soils and animal bodies like GMO’s to stimulate growth..and on and on…could be having any adverse effects on our health?

I am not a qualified medical professional of any kind and that for advice that you should seek the advice of a qualified medical professional of your choice to gain advice. Ironically, I consider it very important that during my researching this information that I have personally asked (41) professional medical doctor professionals to see if they were familiar with the topics that are written about below, and I discovered that only (9) of those (24) were aware of some of the information about any alkaline water (created with chemicals) and even less about alkalized water.

From this I concluded that my research on the subject of “water” had informed me to a level that was much more than my professional medical doctors whom I rely upon for their medical advice. A profound fact is that our bodies are made up of 60% to 75% water averaging around 72%. Why not as much attention to what we hydrate our bodies with as we give to prescriptions for illnesses?

In my research I discovered an organization called the American Anti-Cancer InstituteThe Mission of the proposed American Anti-Cancer Center Campus, is to eradicate cancer and other immune-degenerative disease in humans through the Hippocratic philosophy of Natural Medicine among three proposed Campus facilities:
The American Anti-Cancer Institute, The American Anti-Cancer University and The American Anti-Cancer Clinic. Did you know about this organization and their efforts that have gone on for years? I did not and as a prior (5) time malignant Cancer Survivor, this organization information was a revelation to me. Especially since The American Cancer Society states publicly that they project that each American man has a 1 in 2 likelihood to contract cancer during their lifetime where every American woman has a 1 in 3 likelihood to contract cancer during their lifetime. 

This prompted me to read several books including “Killing Cancer – Not People” by Robert G. Wright, and “The Confessions of a Skeptical Physician” by Dr. Tim McKnight, MD, plus several other writings that I have listed on my research sites. There are many videos posted on YouTube.com and Vimeo.com and other sites which I have learned that America’s medical, pharmaceutical, medical university, legal and media industry are closely aligned to drugs, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals for our medical solutions, and that the NIH is continuing on that same inorganic path.

Have you heard of these publications? They are extremely important, among others, and if you are or have someone in your family with a serious illness, I highly recommend that you read these books as soon as possible.

Would you agree that KNOWLEDGE is POWER? If you do why not read below in detail and in my opinion possibly improve your health and longevity, increase your wealth and have greater peace of mind?

Here it is!..this very important information that very few know about now…although I believe that there will be a major information explosion on this topic soon…the solutions have been developed in hospitals by doctors and medical employees beginning in 1974. The initial research began by German Scientist Otto Heinrich Warburg  and in 1931 he was awarded his first Nobel Prize. The Russians, Japanese and other countries continued research on related topics of life longevity, acid rain, and water.

In 1974 the Japanese developed and introduced high technology ionizing devices to receive tap or faucet water, filter it from impurities however leaving valuable minerals in the water, and then to provide restructured water that when produced as alkaline water it is a powerful anti-oxidant water. This alkalyzed, electrolized, micro clusterd and restructured,  anti-oxidant water, electrically charged to connect with free radicals, has proven very useful to many thousands of people.

This water emulates the few truly clean, mineral rich healthy water sources around the world that is produced by a fast running, cold mountain stream or waterfalls with rocks where the water is cascading over these rocks.  This is what nature once provided to man…however is becoming extremely scarce now… it only exists in very limited parts of the world today. This similar kind of water is now available to you, produced by you as you turn on your kitchen faucet and the water proceeds through an electronic medical device system that produces this kind of water. Just think…eliminate the millions of gallons of petroleum to deliver water to you, no mystery as to where the water was produced, how old it is, how fresh the water really may be, what chemicals may be inside, and no plastic bottles leach bpa.  This will help to avoid further contamination of our oceans now filled with five major plastic garbage vortexes, with one “Garbage Patch” which is larger than the State of Texas…and growing. This problem to me seems much more realistic and proven than global warming!

The real danger to you and anyone that drinks our current water supplies, and especially bottled water which is virtually unregulated as to quality, whatever the source, is how to avoid the chemicals, poisons, herbicides, pesticides, groundwater pharmaceutical contaminants including viagara and all of the hospice disposals made in toilets of homes. And the impurities of heated plastic and bpa contaminants adds a new dimension of risk to the human body.

I am your Independent Distributor for Kangen Water, Enagic USA Ltd and this is my way of sharing this message with as many people as possible. I can help you get your Kangen Water System for you counter to connect to your faucet anywhere around the world…and also to help anyone establish their own Independent Distributorship only if they choose… this is by choice only. And I will explain to you how you can earn your Kangen Water medical device FREE!

So you may think that I am kidding with you…not so…I invite you to do your own research just by entering the words “kangen water” into major search bars and see what you find. Our doctors suggest that you use “www.pubmed.org” for the most accurate medical info. I have enjoyed finding several thousand videos on both www.youtube.com and www.vimeo.com.  I especially enjoy the one called Celebrities Drinking Kangen Water“. Why would people like Bill Gates, direct his research analysts and attorneys to recommend anything but the best for his use?

Now available in 172 countries around the world in homes, hospitals, restaurants, and certified and prescribed by 7,000+ Japanese doctors this technology certainly deserves your time and attention for your own analysis.

Thank you again for your reading time and being a Subscriber to this blog. I sincerely trust that you enjoyed this information and that it may benefit you in some ways.

Consider A Plan For Personal and Small Business Risks

Do you or your family ever feel at risk about anything? You may be so fortunate that you are blessed with total “peace of mind”! Or maybe some risks concern you. If they do then the next question is do you think you should do anything to minimize those risks? This post suggests that you take a few minutes to reflect on major risk areas in your lives and decide if you should take any actions. As humans, we are much more concerned with fear than with any other emotion that we experience…so why not explore ways to address our fears?

  • Financial Budgeting and Cash Flow Risks… Includes meeting your financial obligations such as paying your mortgage and bills and having enough money to do all the things you want to do including having extra money for travel, college, vacation, retirement, second home and more!
  • Career risks… Are you satisfied with your career and future employment situation? Are your earnings needs being met? Look good for the future? Do you have a Plan B?  Could additional and multiple income streams benefit your lifestyle and degree of financial independence?
  • Disability Income Risks… In the event of accident or long-term illness do you have protection for these possibilities?
  • Personal and Family Legal Risks… Includes those events that are subject to laws, actions by others who may want to file legal actions against you, by people who may not abide by the laws and adversely affect you, traffic violations, court representation and accidents,  which occur and may bring significant legal actions and consequences. What happens to you and your family in case of trivial or traumatic legal issues? Do you have any way to cover these costs? Do you know and trust good attorneys in all fields of law?
  • Identity Theft Risks… The risks associated with someone stealing your personal name and identity and using it or selling it to someone else, using your Social Security number and filing your tax return or using it for employment, your Drivers License number to avoid arrests or to gain the ability to drive, your checking account to gain access to your cash assets, and credit cards to purchase goods illegally. For (12) years now this has been the largest consumer complaint crime in the U.S. and some 30,000 new victims of identity theft wake up each morning to this very horrible event that many times takes professionals to access your private data and years to restore.
  • Medical Risks… Includes health issues whether caused by natural or accidental reasons. Most everyone would agree that if you do not have good health that all of your other aspects of life are very much in question. It is imperative that we maintain good health! Do you have good medical protection to protect you against depletion of your assets as well as adequate cash reserve and/or disability income insurance to sustain you through an extended period of time?
  • Home Ownership and Rental Risks… Includes those risks that occur in the event of fire, flood or personal activities on properties. Do you have insurance on your property, personal items, and personal injury, accident or lawsuit?
  • Automobile Risks… Includes risks of damage or destruction of property and injury to individuals. Do you have also have legal coverage to pay your family’s legal costs to represent you in the case of being charged with accidental homicide? Ask your agent if you have this legal representation? Rarely does an automobile policy include such coverage.
  • Small Business Ownership Risks… Includes thousands of issues involving legal contracts, reading and modifying contracts, legal advice and counsel, legal representation in case of suits,  legal costs, property costs, liability costs, healthcare costs and many others.  Do you have a plan for affordable legal services as a small business owner?

Do you have a budget planned for each of these potential risk areas? Do you think that it may be a good idea to protect yourselves for these risks?

It is my intention to inform you about solutions to solve these issues, at costs that you can afford, who can help you with each, and to give you options of what to do next.  Just contact me on my email at dannorris42@gmail.com or call me on 407-749-9395.

The Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Connection

Kangen Water® - Change your water, change your life!Dear Dear Friend,

The Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Connection

Mind BodyWhat is the link between a healthy body and mind? The natural mind-body connection is truly amazing! For example, when you feel stressed, your immune system can suffer. When you allow tension to distract you from making positive choices, your health can deteriorate. What’s interesting about all of this is that YOU have the power to avoid stress triggers and focus on positive lifestyle choices! These choices can have a positive impact to create a more healthy body and a healthy mind!

Constant stress and worry are actually all forms of “mind toxins”. Chemicals such as endorphins can stimulate the production of extra cortisol and adrenaline in the blood stream, making it difficult to fight illnesses.1 It’s important that you take time daily to clear out your mind of any worries and find ways to rid yourself of a build up of negative chemicals.

Reduce the Stress, Naturally

It’s a sad truth that we live in a time when chronic levels of stress have pervaded much of society. This unhealthy lifestyle, coupled with poor eating and sleeping habits, can create havoc on the mind and body.

 

Kangen Water - Change your water, change your life!

Here are some suggested ways to reduce stress, naturally:

  • Give your mind a break from information overload. We live in a world that includes too many forms of stimuli, like television, radio, cell phones and the Internet. Make a sincere effort to get away from this by turning them off when not needed.
  • Start meditating. Find a quiet spot in your home or office and learn mindful meditation techniques to clear the mind of all the day’s stresses. Learn to listen to your body by deeply breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth, making note of your heartbeat and the sensations of your body.
  • Allow positive thoughts to replace negative ones. Focus on the good things in your life and let those things that don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things dissipate. By paying attention to the positives, the negatives won’t seem as powerful in your life.
  • Once you are in a calmer state of mind, get outside and take a brisk walk, ride a bike or go for a run around your community. Bring extra Kangen Water® to keep hydrated during exercise. Taking in the fresh air and clean water will have a naturally refreshing effect on your spirit.

What Can be Done About Stress?

It’s common sense that some of the better ways of preventing long-term stress are getting plenty of sleep, exercising regularly, and maintaining a healthy, balanced diet. It is unrealistic to expect optimal performance from your brain when it is deprived of critical nutrients. Your performance, thoughts, feelings, and behavior are all affected by the health of your brain.

Natural Hydration

Water – Natural Brain Booster

Water is quite possibly the most important element of your diet for a healthy mind and a healthy body. Water is your body’s principal chemical component and makes up about 60 percent of your body weight.2 Without water, your body’s delicate balance between mind and body may be compromised.

Do You Know What’s in Your Water?

What's in your water?The answer to this question may shock you! If you are drinking from public or community water systems, you may be surprised to find that there are contaminants and chemicals found in water in most homes. These unwelcome additives can actually work against your best efforts to stay hydrated and healthy. Here are some scientifically proven facts about what’s in the public water system.

More than 20% of untreated water samples from 932 public wells contained at least one contaminant at levels of potential health concern, according to a 2010 study by the U.S. Geological Survey.1

BacteriaWell water can be contaminated by fluoride, run-off, and pesticides. A 2009 study showed that 23% of sampled wells had at least one chemical contaminant that exceeded human-health benchmarks.2

EPAA 1999 study from the Environmental Protection Agency indicated,Much of the existing water infrastructure (underground pipes, treatment plants, and other facilities) was built many years ago. The EPA findings were that drinking water systems will need to invest $150 billion over a 20-year period to ensure clean and safe drinking water.”3

No one knows exactly the ramifications of long-term use of public water for hydration, cleansing and more. However, it is known that consumers who fall under certain special groups, based on health and age, can experience problems associated with the contaminants found in city and well water.3

Kangen Water - Change your water, change your life!

The Solution: Kangen Water®

Kangen WaterKangen Water® is a better choice for hydration. It is ionized, pH balanced, and filled with helpful minerals such as magnesium, calcium, and potassium. The Enagic® Water Ionized Filter Machine produces delicious alkaline drinking water.

Since over 70% of the body is comprised of water, doesn’t it make sense that drinking healthy water is the most basic choice for your wellness and longevity? Your investment in an Alkaline Ionized Enagic® Water System is an investment in your future.

Law of Attraction – Build It and They Will Come!

Today’s topic is about a “Marketing System” built on the principles of the “Law of Attraction”.

Law of Attraction
Attraction Marketing

There are two key examples of the “Law of Attraction” that I like to point to in order to give the reader a point of reference for my information.

The first example is the movie called Field of Dreams, a 1989 American fantasy-drama film, that received three Academy Award Nominations. The story is about building a baseball stadium in the middle of a farm field.  The second example is The Law of Attraction. A book and movie are available on the topic and you can watch the full length video on YouTube.

As an avid student and practitioner of many marketing approaches the concept of Attraction Marketing, Relationship Marketing, Article and Video Marketing are all  very appealing to me as compared to harassment Marketing, Interruption Marketing, Warm List Marketing, Direct Mail Marketing, Telephone Marketing, Shotgun Marketing, Ambush Marketing, Article Marketing,  Alliance Marketing, TV and Radio Marketing and on and on with many more types that are many times so boring and redundant. I find myself watching three or more programs on the TV just to avoid the commercial breaks on my primary program.

Marketing Concepts
Law of Attraction

To cite my preferences, tv commercials, cold calls, radio commercials, and calling on your warm market including your family and friends, are absolutely not my most enjoyable ways to invest time…at least for me.  And in our buying process most of us prefer to deal with a company and people that we know or that we can develop confidence in very rapidly. This approach is called “Relationship Marketing” and known to be the most effective marketing method currently in use. Now if this is the best possible marketing method how do we implement this concept to appeal to the millions of internet users that we do not know? Here is where the appeals of “Attraction Marketing” kick in. As human beings we have an insatiable desire for knowledge, and the internet provides us with an incredibly wonderful tool to share information. The concept of a marketer generating “content” that people are interested in reading… about goods and services that people want and need…and then providing goods and services of value to these readers is a basic description of “Attraction Marketing.”

If “Attraction Marketing” is of interest to you I suggest that you read the following free document authored by the leader and teacher of more than 350,000 people on this subject, Ann Sieg.  With her partner Ty Tribble, leading U.S. blogger, I am enjoying immensely learning about the art and science of prospective customers finding what they want.

Law of Attraction
Attraction Marketer’s Manifesto

Under the Attraction Marketing tab on my blog pages, you will find many posts on this subject. And I would welcome the opportunity to chat with you about them.

Today’s Topic!

As I listen to the heartbeat of America today I believe that the single greatest need in our country is for many millions of our citizens to have the opportunity to earn a good income. This includes many who are un-employed and are seeking employment, many who are under-employed and have taken employment positions which are much less than their qualifications and earning capabilities, many who have taken reductions in regular wages because employers will not pay the usual incomes due to worker competition, and many people who have had their working hours slashed from 40 hours to 32 hours or less because of new government laws and regulations that penalize employers for the number of employees that they have or the number of full-time employees.

And then there is a significant number of people in the U.S. who have learned that they can make more from government handouts…averaging $30-$45k per year…than they can earn at legitimate jobs. The current administration is aware that less than 50% of U.S. citizens pay taxes, and insists that the 50% who work for a living, pay taxes and have any assets should sacrifice to take care of those who do not work. This administration chooses to penalize those who have and give to those who do not have. Is this the right way to run America?  Our country and it’s people are in a very serious unemployment and underemployment situation and so many have stopped seeking jobs that real unemployment continues well over 10%, even though the Labor Department’s new methods of reporting have changed drastically which allows reporting to portray the economy as much improved from what it really is now.

Why am I writing about this today? It is because I am so concerned about the millions of people who currently are not taking advantage of the opportunity to live the real American dream of free enterprise. This opportunity is available for you to seize now! Our economy is being restrained in so many ways by our government and policy now that it is choking the life out of capitalism. My purposes in writing about this are the following. First I think that every citizen that feels adversely affected by this current economic environment should contact their congressional and senatorial representatives and ask them to make changes to improve our situation. Secondly, the patriotic way of the American people is to get strong and overcome any obstacles that we face…as we always have done.

And thirdly, I challenge any Americans who want better lifestyles to take action to improve their incomes and financial status in life by becoming entrepreneurs. Yes, this means starting your own business either part-time or full-time, depending upon your situation, and preparing yourself to be financially independent and free of control from the government, employers, or anyone else who is deciding your standard of living.

Is ObamaCare Good For You And Your Business?

ObamaCare
ObamaCare Train Wreck

Suggestion: Listen to ” America The Beautiful” by Ray Charles while you read this…start video at bottom of page.

This post tonight is about a critical subject being decided upon during the month of September…

Is ObamaCare Good For You And Your Business?

This country is attempting to implement an original 2700 page Bill that was never read nor debated in the House or the Senate nor read by the President. This was a political concept which was never properly discussed or debated.

Can you imagine the Constitution of the United States being passed in such a careless manner? Is this how a great country is supposed to represent it’s people? Is this how we express our exceptionalism? It used to be my friend…

Or does Washington know best for everyone…and we do not dare question their opinions, beliefs, or decisions??? Are we to be led by an ideological party and narcissistic leader to “total transformation of our country” like cattle to slaughter?

Sorry my friend, this is not the way that I do business, either personally, politically, or spiritually!

Only Democrats voted for the Bill. No Republicans voted for the Bill. This is extreme proof that this is a partisan Bill. The day before passing the Bill the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi when asked what was in the Bill said…”We have to pass this Bill so that we can find out what is in it.”

This is the President’s signature presidential accomplishment and his first priority for the country was to get this Bill passed. The employment issues and economic issues took a back seat to ObamaCare. Obviously he wants to preserve the Bill at all costs, especially since it would be a serious threat to his presidency.

The reasons for the Bill are clearly political as the major purposes are to take resources from some people and provide those same resources to other people with government controlling the collection and redistribution. And the government gives a 30-40% haircut for the process of redistribution. Even with the planned implementation we will continue to have 30 million people uninsured…which was supposedly the reason for the bill to start. This is decisively a wealth redistribution bill which gives the government much more control over our personal information, our lives, our money, and our freedoms.

When the ObamaCare Bill was taken to the Supreme Court, it was declared legal only as a “tax” by one vote by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. This was a very creative decision that none of the other justices even considered, which to me makes it suspect.

This Bill takes away from our independence and freedoms. This Bill is a precursor to what the Democrats really want which is a single payer insurance system, non-competitive across states or between companies, and totally controlled by the Federal Government. This would put the government in control of your health, your information and your livelihood. This would be a total destruction of what has been the greatest medical system in the world.

60%-70% of the American population today say they do not like what they know about ObamaCare.

CBO estimates of ObamaCare were $940 billion. CBO now estimates costs to be double at $1.8 Trillion.

Many, many organizations have been given waivers out of ObamaCare including the Government, and the Unions are asking for their waiver.  Thousands of waivers have been granted…all favoritism to obtain votes.

Insurance costs were not supposed to increase. Since approval of the Bill insurance costs have increased 25% to 100% across the country. Insurers are withdrawing from states as they cannot maintain profitability.

Many doctors are withdrawing from the medical profession as they can no longer be profitable or practice medicine according to their ethical oaths. This will cause a decrease in the quality of medicine and increase costs even more.

The Federal Government is spending hundreds of millions of tax dollars on advertisement promoting ObamaCare.  After all of the publicity given ObamaCare to date you would think that people would like it and not have to be convinced.

Employers are limiting growth of their businesses to no more than 50 employees so as to avoid the penalties of ObamaCare.

Employers are reducing employees working hours to 30 hours or week to avoid penalties of ObamaCare.

The Cleveland Clinic, largest employer in Ohio, announced today they are slashing $330 million in cost reductions because of ObamaCare and will implement employee layoffs to effect these cost-reductions. This is occurring at hospitals across the country.

Home Depot is announced that due to costs of ObamaCare that 20,000 employees would be transferred to the Federal pools for insurance to deal with the impact of ObamaCare. This is commonplace across the country.

Insurance companies are withdrawing from the insurance industry or markets due to non-profitability.

Many more issues are arising from ObamaCare implementation every day.

Do you like ObamaCare for you and your business and do you want it to be implemented?

As a small business owner and individual I strongly oppose the implementation of ObamaCare for many reasons. I have very little confidence in the policies of this Administration and consider this one a major failure.

This Bill impacts 1/6 of our total economy and appears to be seriously affecting a large number of people.

I continue to look for the advantages and disadvantages and the negatives seem to far outweigh the positives.  If I could find a list of advantages of the program I would list them here now. I would welcome from you a list of the key advantages of ObamaCare to the American People.

I hear many people saying…I wish I could do something about stopping ObamaCare but I do not know what I can do.

I began a Blog called “The Conservative Blog” to have the opportunity to speak my political opinions about my concerns as to what is happening to our country. I much prefer to share my political opinions on that Blog, however, “The Road To Financial Independence Blog” is about business, our economy, how to be employed, how to get ahead, and tips and ideas on being more effective in business, and I consider that it is appropriate to write about this subject here.

To me the ObamaCare Bill is seriously impacting the economy, the growth of my business, the growth of individuals and businesses that I serve, as well as the overall welfare of our wonderful country, the United States of America.

I submit to you that as Americans, our rights to free speech are invaluable, and that it is in our best interests to let our voices be heard strongly in Washington during the coming days. I support you in your opinion whatever that may be…maybe not agree with it but will support the fact that you are entitled to your opinion.

If you were not pleased with our country’s recent imminent attacks on Syria, I hope that you will consider that the vote on ObamaCare is extremely important to you and I…especially during these days of September. Harry Reid  and Barack Obama do not want to hear our opinions and protests.

The backroom joke in Washington now is that the only “red line” that the President will stick to is his refusal to negotiate on key issues with the Congress and the Senate. Tell me, are President Putin and President Assad more important than the people of the United States? I hope that we can determine this in the coming days. These are extremely important times for our country.

I believe that the American People are the only ones that can make a non-partisan, non-political, objective consideration of the facts and see the potential destructive looming damage of ObamaCare…and that each of us should speak up now with our own opinions, therefore fulfilling our duties as citizens in a timely fashion. Your forefathers would be proud of you for speaking your peace. Will you contact Washington and let them hear from you?

I plan to be a part of the 10 million+ petition I just received a call on to be sent to Washington requesting that we defund ObamaCare. Will you be a part of this Petition?

It is time that we let our voices be heard Americans!

Attraction Marketing

THE ATTRACTION MARKETER’S MANIFESTO

Attraction Marketing Manifesto
Attraction Marketing Manifesto

Success in your own business, internet marketing or any other business, comes from making intelligent business decisions in all areas. In the last two years I have found two incredibly good business opportunities that are second to none. The first is an internet marketing approach that applies to any business ranging from internet marketing to storefronts. The basic principle that makes this approach so successful is that it is based on your prospects and customers finding you as opposed to you finding them. Technology has given us communication tools and other marketing techniques that allow people to search for what they want on the internet by typing in a few keystrokes. The savvy business person now needs to find marketing mentors that can help them in learning about Attraction Marketing and how to go about it.

Renegade Marketing
Ann Sieg
Renegade Marketing

I am fortunate to have found Ann Sieg whom I consider the leader in Attraction Marketing strategies and training…and she has trained some 350,000 people around the world so that they can be profitable in their businesses. There is an offer below to provide you with a free copy of Ann’s highly interesting e-book…The Attraction Marketers Manifesto!

My secrets to success for those who choose to work with me also include mentoring and guiding them as to how to proceed in the study of necessary information and techniques. I have always been a do-it-yourselfer…rarely asking for any assistance…however after three months of determining my own direction…it was obvious that I needed to be a participating member of Ann’s Renegade Marketing Team…a closed group of more than 1000 professionals sharing information on how to best learn and implement Ann’s attraction marketing techniques.

As a result of my involvement with the Renegade Marketing Team I have been fortunate to receive the mentoring of a highly competent member of this team,  Edwin Cabrera, http://edwincabrera.com/Online Marketing Strategies – Online Marketing Consultant who has provided his knowledge and services to me for several weeks now..and this has been invaluable.  Also assisting me are several others who have many years of experience and expertise to help me become successful.

My important point is that it is rare that you can be successful by yourself…you need the right marketing strategy, the leading key mentors, and willing and competent individuals who will share their secrets to success on an ongoing basis. If you want to begin modern-day techniques of marketing your business, increasing your customer base and increasing profits. If you would like to build your internet marketing business with the latest marketing technologies…like “getting people to come to you rather than you sorting through them” to find warm prospects, I am really impressed with Ann Sieg’s excellent work for the last several years on Attraction Marketing! The Attraction Marketers Manifesto…Click here now to get your free copy!

Dena Kouremetis, Contributor 3/18/2013

So how do you start a blog? Most small businesses know they need original-content-laden blogs, but the daunting task of putting one together stops many individuals cold. Others can’t keep up, abandoning their efforts and making their blog pages look like foreclosed homes from 2008.

Here are some ways to ready your blog-writing future before ever hitting the “publish” tab on your WordPress.com, Blogger.com or proprietary web site blogging programs:

So Are You Looking To Realize The American Dream?

The American Dream
The American Dream

Maybe you just graduated from college and you have the “average $33,000 college tuition debt” or more. You have now begun searching for a corporate “JOB” in a career field in which you are qualified, or maybe any field that will help you pay your bills and/or move out from mom and dad. Or maybe you graduated a year or two ago or more and you wonder how you are going to get on the right career path.  Or maybe you have been a victim of the downsizing in this most unusual American economy and you are wondering how you can ever have an enjoyable, pleasure filled life for you and your family again.

So Are You Looking To Realize The American Dream?

 

Or maybe you are one of those incredibly wonderful veterans returning from your all voluntary service and you are ready to begin your way to achieve the American Dream! May God Bless All of You for Your Service and placing your country and all of the people who live in it before your own priorities. We are so proud of you!!!

As a veteran of the Korean War in the 1950’s I empathize with you and on this very special Memorial Day Weekend, honor you and all veterans who have sacrificed their lives or even more for this country. I watched the TV History Channel for five hours yesterday and relived WWII where I remember on Sunday morning, December 7, 1941 the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. Did you know that 8 million Americans fought in this war and that 415,000 American Soldiers died defending America? May God Bless every one of them and their families. And this goes for all of you during the Iraq and Afghanistan military campaigns who have lost your loved ones, your arms or legs or eyes or ears, and have been maimed for life. May God Bless every one of you.

This post is dedicated to anyone and everyone that wants to realize “The American Dream”, no matter what your background or experiences, or how many arms and legs that you have now. With  many years of business experience I have succeeded in achieving the dream in my opinion and want to share with those interested as to how you might shorten your journey on that path. I am not filthy rich as are many who are extremely fortunate, and I have been up and down and up and down the ladder of success which seems to be typical in a capitalistic society. At this time I am very thankful for this country, the opportunity here, and the fact that I can share with others experiences that can be very beneficial.

To set the stage for your consideration of your career goals, I suggest that you compare the concept of being an Entrepreneur with that of Capitalism…do you want to decide your future or let someone else do so…including at least 5 days per week of effort 9-5 or thereabouts. Consider this statement on Capitalism…would you prefer to own your own business?

So how can you “Realize The American Dream”?

I am offering to share valuable information with you, without charge, and my reward will be that of getting you on your path. You may already know it all and you need no advice from your parents, your counselors, your peers and your friends, which is a real mistake. Very frankly, I sincerely wish there had been an internet when I came along and that there were successful people who were sincerely interested in advising me. I would have achieved much more than I ever have. Do you think that Donald Trump provides a service with his development of entrepreneurs? Do you ever watch Shark Tank to see how very successful business people choose to work with and fund entrepreneurs?

So what could I possibly do to help you to be successful (and not charge you an arm and a leg)? Sound trite? It is not. One of these days you will appreciate every helping hand that you can find. Here’s how we can get started…

1.   Have you recorded on paper so that you can see it at all times…your goals and objectives for the next 1 and 3 and 5 years. If not, are you willing to develop these now, print them out and post them in front of your computer? If not…thanks for reading this so far however reading any further will probably be a waste of your time. I remember an age old saying “if you don’t know where you are going you will probably get there”.

2.   Have you decided if you want to work for a corporation or someone else all your life or at some point in time do you want to be financially independent on yourself only?  I ask that you write the answer to this question on your goals and objectives page and state what you want and when.

3.   Have you inventoried your skills and recorded them on paper?

4.   Have you inventoried your likes and preferences and recorded them on paper?

5. Have you inventoried your constraints so that you can narrow your searches to the real opportunities available?

If you will do these things, then contact me, together, based on your goals, we can discuss the next steps.  You can reach me at email dannorris42@gmail.com or 407-749-9395.

By the way, my advice for you will be focused on helping you achieve financial independence…not a “JOB” which I refer to as a “just over broke” opportunity…which can also be a lot of fun and very enjoyable. I did this for (30) years with two of the top (10) corporations in America as well as (7) start-up companies for another (26) years. I currently have five businesses that I manage from my computer with a two hour per day investment. I wake up excited every morning to see what has happened around the world…and to see if I really made some substantial money overnight! Realizing the American Dream is not an overnight phenomenom…it is a process which takes commitment, a reasonable amount of time, and belief in yourself that you can be successful. Would you like to do this? Could you commit one to two hours per day to the goal of achieving financial independence? To me that is a very minor commitment to being your own master of your fate forever!

It would be a pleasure to talk with you.

And by the way, before writing this blog post, I had the privilege of watching and listening to Steve Smith of ESPN and I find him to be highly inspirational and to make a lot of common sense…please listen to Steve…

Recession and Your Financial Goals

Today’s post is about how we must deal with the current 5-year long recession and your financial goals…and what we can do to achieve your financial goals in the midst of this very severe economic downturn. Has this economy affected you in achieving your financial goals? It certainly has affected me. And frankly I don’t see any outside help in sight.  We are now the “regulation nation”, we have added more taxes for virtually everyone, we are seeing the suppression of truth and honesty, and as a result we have very little trust in our government.  Can we really thrive as a nation where the wealthier class supports the remainder with lenient social programs?

Can we as individuals overcome these major obstacles? It is a tremendous challenge!

Entrepreneurship
Financial Independence

My answer is absolutely YES! To me the real “American Way” is when the going gets tough, the tough get going. And I am talking about individuals now…not government. What is going on with our government is frightening in terms of intrusion on our freedoms, our constitutional rights, unbridled government spending, and wastefulness. Unless we change the way that our government is being managed, I have great concerns for the long term existance of our country as a republic.

And now I come back to the individual American citizen. I have great confidence that enough of our citizens are going to stand up and fight for our freedoms until we can get this country on the right track again. We have many citizens of this country that will not accept and talk about what is real truth now. Political correctness is destroying many values in our lives. Many are so very disinterested in what is going on that even some college students do not know about current events including who is the Vice President of the U.S..   I believe that truth will win out. This is a nation founded under God’s principles and beliefs, and I pray that He will lead us in the right path.

keys to success
financial independence

In the meantime as we gather hands to correct our government, I think the even more serious issue is the welfare of Americans who are struggling for financial security and independence. I submit that the only way for us to individually overcome these obstacles is for each person to take strong responsibility for their own personal financial well-being including finding a way to achieve financial independence. I believe that each person in financial need identify skills that they have and determine how to share those skills and bring value to others. This means many self-based and home-based businesses to bootstrap each of us to prosperity.

And I offer to help individuals find those opportunities where they can become successful and to teach them how to market themselves successfully. For discussion contact me on email at dannorris42@gmail.com or by phone at 407-749-9395.

If you want to succeed – can you afford not to be a Blogger?

The topic today deals with the question…if you want to succeed in your business or affiliation – can you afford not to be a Blogger – or equivalent?

Blogs
Blogging

And this question applies to essentially any vocation or profession…not just to internet marketers. You may be an MLM marketer, direct sales marketer, CPA, attorney, financial advisor, real estate agent, store front business owner, insurance agent, and more. And if your business is investing major amounts in tv, newspaper and radio advertising, then you also  are evaluating the new consumer environment. What is this evolving  environment? At the heart of this transition is the use of the internet where in 2012 there were an estimated 2.4 billion users around the world. Let’s analyze a bit.

In the past we have relied heavily on tv, newspaper, radio, and direct mail advertisement to get branding, product and service messages to the buying market. These methods are expensive, however with enough expenditures they do effectively take products and services to market. We have a major transition occurring in our communications channels, with the internet having a major impact on our buying decisions. To give you an idea of the effectiveness of different marketing channels here is a recent analysis of SMB Marketing Channel Effectiveness Ratings. For full legible details go to the larger chart with the link.

Marketing Channels
SMB Marketing Channel Effectiveness

 

We can see that SEO, Online Display Ads and Social Media have displaced direct mail and print ads which includes the newspapers and magazines. At the top of the list is Person-to-Person contact as it should be. And with the internet now about 20 years old, where do you think we will be in electronic communication in 10, 20 and 50 years from now. Hard copy may be a thing of the past.

Today we have proceeded to be a society of electronic communicators, using many different devices, being very busy and with very little time to devote to a subject…we now decide online in seconds as to whether something is worth our time or interesting…and we may spend 10-15 minutes on any topic at the most.

Here is my question to you, if you intend to be in business either now or in the future, how important do you think it will be for you to establish your presence in the digital world? How will you communicate to others about you and your offerings? Certainly personal contact will continue to be the most important method of doing business.  Being involved in activities in your community and business societies are essential. I submit that it is equally important that you establish a strong presence in the electronic digital world.

As leaders in the industry of establishing an electronic marketing presence, I recommend strongly the concepts of Ann Sieg in Attraction Marketing and Ty Tribble in the art of Blogging.  Attraction Marketing and Blogging can be effective in many ways and I submit that these are two of the best trainers in the communications industry for you to learn from.

Tips For Your Plan B

Tips For Your Plan B

What is your Plan B?

So life is cool right…you are on top of the world….you have this great income producing job…and you are not even thinking about this subject “What is your Plan B” or whatever….or maybe you have a job that is providing you with 32 hours per week, and this is not enough to pay all the bills, and certainly not enough to save any money for vacation, retirement, education and other preferred lifestyles? What is your Plan B?

And if you don’t have a Plan B then you are a really good prospect to go over the financial cliff!

So let’s talk about solutions for those who want more ok…just bottom line stuff..solutions that you can pursue part-time or full time…whatever your situation and circumstances require.

To the short and sweet…what happens if your employer goes bottom up tomorrow? Do you care? Does this affect your life or just your weekly pay check? Have you made any alternate plans in case your primary employer is forced out of business, is sold to another company, or your job is no longer needed. What is your Plan B?

It is really cool to have a Plan B! What that means is in case your primary income ceases it is very important and rewarding to have another income stream to kick in and take up the slack. Let me acquaint you with meaningful, easy to implement options for Plan B. This blog contains many posts that describe several options for developing your personal business opportunities.

In addition, I am aware of several additional business opportunities that could be promising for certain people depending upon their personal qualifications, preferences and goals.

This is an invitation to you for a few minutes of complimentary personal discussion with you to see if there is any way that I might assist you on your road to financial independence.  It is my time in life to give back to a country and people that have been so generous to me.
