Freedom: unbridled

As a 19 year old, flying a million dollar war bird in Vietnam - (101st Airborne Division ("Screaming Eagles")) attributed to the American Bald Eagle - a bird that does not group in packs, I had unbridled Freedom to do whatever my mind lead me to do, as I patrolled the skies, usually a single ship, hunting any thing that wasn't suppose to be in my area of operations - I was a free spirit, governed by my own desires.

I was aware of my freedom then, and, while I don't miss war nor Vietnam, that same sense of freedom don't exist in everyday life.

 Freedom is only seen as limited when one is in a situation that is outside their comfort zone.

Mothers Day reflections

Honoring Women on Mothers' Day

Anna Jarvis, the founder of Mothers' Day, did not like the commercialism of Mothers' Day.

"Mother's Day is a personal, family and memorial day. It’s a celebration for sons and daughters; a thanks and offering for the blessings of good homes." - Anna Jarvis, Miami Daily News interview 1924.

Mothers' Day: although its a special day to honor mothers, I would like to point out that its a great time to reflect upon the great things that all women do to make life worth living.

Begin each day with a special thought for the millions of women, mothers or not, who may be starting their days in very different ways - keep them in your hopes and prayers - and do whatever you can to ensure that young girls are able to grow into great women.

Thanks for reading this, I know its off the usual path of business, but I have always had a great love for the well-being of women and children world-wide. I pray you don't mind me taking this time, to promote well wishes for women all around the global communities.

I have been away from home, in my country and in other countries, and there were always some women there who nurtured me with a mother's love and made me feel taken care of - showing me how to do things to take care of myself --

Happy Mother's day to my mother and all the wonderful women around this planet.

Keyword or long tail keywords

When looking at "keywords", you may wish to consider that one little letter at the end, the letter 's'. Getting on the first page is not about 'keyword' but 'keywords'!

Take for example, 'marketing', that is too vast a subject to get quality visitors to your site. A person using just the one word 'marketing' in their search, may have no idea what they are actually looking for or are just wandering what the term means - using the internet as a dictionary.

If you have a site on marketing, in order to stand out (B unique), your content must address some specific aspect of marketing that other sites do not address and also fill a need for a large number of people that are interesting in marketing.

Thus, your content will have a lot of words on your unique subject - a few of those words will be "Key" to people finding your information. Thus, the term - "keywords" (plural).

Long tail keywords are defined as keyword phrases that consist of between two and five words, usually used when searching for a rather specific item. Therefore, long-tail keywords have less competition and when your site have the correct keywords within its content and that content is unique - you will rank on or close to the first page of the search engine.

Plus, when the person that reach your site is actually looking for the unique content they find on your site, they will interact more with your site. The person doing a general search, say for 'marketing', may not find anything they think is useful on your site. They wont stay long which is bad for your page rank and if your site is set to produce income, they wont be there long enough to buy anything.

The trick is to make sure your content (the 'words' on your site) are 'key' to what you want people to search for in the first place.

Warm Market Success for Your Business

Do you dream of financial freedom or do you lay awake at night worrying about money?

Dreams have power. They are the language of your subconscious and can unlock your mind's potential. So, dare to dream, even to dream big, but remember in order to be successful you must take action! If things are not going as well or as fast as you would like them to go, just hang onto your success plan, work your plan and soon you will achieve success in your endeavor.

Many companies suggest we sell to our "warm market". They say, tell your friends and family about your new business. What do you do after you use all your "warm market"? Simple, create new "friends" - then tell them about your business. Some people refer to this as "list building".

The Plan: Contact your warm market; Ask for their opinion on a product or service as a way of introducing them to that product or service; make it time sensitive but do not pester, persuade, convince, sell or guilt your peeps into doing anything they don’t want to do.

In sales and direct marketing your warm market is said to be people you know, which could be friends, relatives and existing customers, even referrals are said to be a warm market - { referral marketing below }. There is simply no faster, nor a more profitable way of getting started on the fast track to success in Network Marketing and Affiliate Marketing than to approach your warm market.

Referral marketing is a structured and systematic process used to maximize the potential of word of mouth advertising. This is accomplished by encouraging, informing, promoting and rewarding customers and contacts to think and talk as much as possible about your supplier, your company, product and service and the value and benefit the supplier brings to them and people they know.

Becoming successful in business is rooted in Prosperity Consciousness. Discover how you can improve your Prosperity Consciousness and bring your dreams to reality!

Is Your Belief in God keeping you Poor?

1 Timothy 6:10
New International Version (NIV)

10 "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs."

Do you despise someone who is able to make more money by doing less than you?

Do the word abundance make you cringe when you hear it spoken?

Do you make yourself a servant to another man - 40 to 80 hours a week for the rest of your life, for the "love of money"?

Is your relationship with your children and your spouse suffering due to you being a servant to a job so that you can make money?

Do you have the time to do what you were created to accomplish?

Money in and of itself is not evil. Pursuing wealth, however, while ignoring contentment is a recipe for disaster.

We are Formed by The Almighty to be builders - to manifest an abundant life where we have the ability to be a blessing to those around us, and not a burden.

The possibilities in life are endless and the blessings of The Almighty are abundant - reach in and grab a hand full any time you so desire.

The Hebrew king, King Solomon, according to historians, was at least the wealthiness person in the world at that point in history. The Tanahk says that it was Yahuwah (the Holy One of Israel) who gave Solomon his wealth. King Solomon didn’t ask for it nor did he lavish wealth.

The book of Proverbs in the Tanakh show us that, "He who works his land will have abundant food, but he who chases fantasies lacks judgment" (12:11).

Proverbs also tell us that, "A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children" (13:22).

In order to leave an inheritance we must achieve an abundance, not only to leave to our children, but to our children’s children. This requires work, discipline, investing, planning and the saving up of our money.

We have to manifest an abundance, an increase in our wealth, in order to have tithes to place in the storehouse for our people in times of lean years. We also have to have abundance in order to bless those who have less than they need to live.

Being wealthy, when done correctly, is the attributes of wealth received do to diligent work, wisdom, personal sacrifice, patience, perseverance, self control and wisdom - "the blessing of Yahuwah brings wealth" (Proverbs 10:22).
