A Sizzling Hot Referral System

How would you like to...

1. Position yourself as "THE" go-to expert for your industry?

2. Get prospects to call, beg and cry out for your product or service?

3. Become a local superstar celebrity?

4. Get all the referrals you can handle?

If any of these things sound good to you then you'll love this referral system. It's based on the principle of "Education-Based Referral Marketing."

Have you ever heard the term, "People don't like to be sold, but they love to buy." The reason that people don't like to be sold is because they like to feel as though they made their own buying decision based on logical benefits rather than being "manipulated" into
making a decision.

That's why Education-Based Referral Marketing is so effective.

NOTE: This POST is pretty long, but it's worth every second of your time to read it!

______________________________________________

What is Education-Based Referral Marketing?
______________________________________________


Education-Based Referral Marketing is exactly what it says it is...it's a method of referral marketing that uses educational tools to help spread the word about your products or services.

When I use the term, "educational tools" I'm talking about information products such as audio CD's, DVD's, special reports, white papers, online videos, email
courses etc.

Once you have these tools developed, you simply ask your referral sources to give them away to their friends and business associates.

For instance, one of the ways that AOL exploded their membership is by having their referral partners give away free trial CD's. Every time I walked into the U.S. Post Office I saw a stack of AOL CD's being given away.

I also saw the AOL CD's in local computer stores, cell phone retail outlets, and even grocery chain stores. Millions of people were introduced to AOL through their CD giveaways at their referral source's place of business.

_________________________________________________________

Why Education-Based Referral Marketing Works Like Crazy!
_________________________________________________________


There are few other referral systems more powerful than a well executed Education-Based Referral Marketing program. Here's why...

1. Educating your prospect, allows you to introduce your products and services with the dignity and respect that you deserve.

2. Your educational message will attract the "right" prospects that you're looking for as opposed to selling-based messages that naturally repel people.

3. Because you're providing a valuable educational experience, people will naturally be attracted to you rather than you having to run after them.

4. Because your referral tool contains a valuable and useful educational message, your referral partners will feel proud to give it to their close friends and associates.

5. Referral tools like audio CD's and DVD's make it easy for your referral partners to spread the word for you because they are easy to distribute and they inherently have a value attached to them.

6. You easily track where you referrals came from by attaching unique ID codes to your referral tools.

7. Finally, and this is a huge benefit), instead of giving referral fees to your referral partners for a referral that turns into a successful sale, you can compensate referral partners for each referral tool that they give away.

In this way, your referral partner gets a direct reward for their immediate efforts, rather than hoping that their referral turns into a sale so that they can get their referral fee.

NOTE: You'll get 10 times more referrals by rewarding people for giving out your audio CD than waiting to reward someone for a referral that turns into a sale.

_______________________________________________________

What Is the Best Type of Education-Based Referral Tool
_______________________________________________________


You might be wondering, "Which is the best education-based referral tool? An audio CD, a DVD, a special report, a teleseminar, a webinar or an email course?"

The answer is, "It depends."

However, my favorite referral tool is an audio CD because is can easily be listened to in a car while driving to and from work and it allows people to hear your voice as if you were there, in the car, talking to them.

In addition, there is a high perceived value that people attach to audio CD's.

If you go to your local bookstore you'll find that audio books are more expensive than regular books, even though an audio CD is often cheaper to produce than a
book.

How to Create Your Own Audio CD Referral Tool
__________________________________________________


You might be thinking that it's too complex to create your own audio CD, but it's not. Here's a simple, step-by-step method to create your own highly effective audio program.

Step 1:
________

Think about who your best prospects for your products and services are and then identify their top 3 problems.

For example, a restaurant owner might struggle with (1)high employee turnover, (2)employee training, and (3)getting customers to return.

Step 2:
________

Create a 10 - 20 page report that (a)introduces who you are and why people should believe
you, (b)what the top 3 problems are, why they are so damaging, and how you solve them, and (c)make them an offer they can't refuse and let them know what the "next step" is to take advantage of your offer.

Step 3:
________

Download the "Audacity Audio Editor" software from the internet. It's will cost you nothing. Just go to Google.com and type in "Audacity Audio Editor."

Step 4:
________

Buy a computer microphone. You can get a cheap one at your local Radio Shack or computer store.

Step 5:
________

Read your report into your microphone and record it using Audacity. (You can automatically put professional music on the beginning and end of the recording using www.FrontandBackMusic.com)

Step 6:
________

Upload your audio file to www.Kunaki.com. Kunaki is a production and fulfillment company.

Kunaki will allow you to create a full color CD cover, print the CD and ship it for you. It will even take your orders for your CD using THEIR merchant account. (and it's extremely inexpensive!)

___________________________________________________

How to Get People to Give Your Referral Tool Away
___________________________________________________


It's not enough to create a great education-based referral tool. In fact, your referral tool is only as good as the amount of people that you can get to listen to it.

Your education-based referral tool is your automatic salesperson. It has the power to deliver your very best educational sales presentation each and every time it is played.

And the best part about it is, you don't even have to be there!

So the more people you get to listen to it, the more sales you can make.

With that in mind, here are some unique ideas to get your referral tool distributed to lots of people.

Idea #1
__________

Get your referral partners to give it away.

To do this you simply place your audio CD's in a CD holder that you can buy at www.displays2go.com.

Then you just go out and ask all the people that you do business with if you can display your CD's in their office or retail location.

This reminds me how AOL became so huge a few years back. You see, AOL created a start up CD that it used to introduce people to their internet service.

Everywhere you went, you saw the AOL CD being offered for free by referral partners.

The local post office. The local grocery store. The local print shop. Everywhere you went, there was an AOL CD offering a free trial.

Idea #2
__________

Ask your referral partners to display a link on their websites to the order page for your audio program .

Or you can pay complimentary websites to give away your audio CD on their websites.

Idea #3
__________

Ask your referral partners that ship products in boxes if you can insert your audio program into their packages as a ride-a-long.

This is similar to an "insert program." You can pay companies that sell complimentary products to insert your CD into their packages. Popular insert managers are www.Millard.com or www.StantonDirect.com

Idea #4
__________

Print a bunch of CD's and take them to your next networking meeting and give each person three CD's to give away to their friends.

Idea #5
__________

Hold a customer appreciation event and send attendees off with several CD's per person to give away to people (or simply send each customer a packet of 5 CDs to give away.)

Idea #7
__________

Pay the sponsors of meetings where your best prospects gather for each audio CD that they give away to their attendees.

Idea #8
__________

Offer your audio CD to others businesses as a bonus that they can give away to increase their own product offer.

For example, I have a friend who create a video titled, "How to Get $1 Million in Free Publicity." He allowed anyone to order that video at his cost from his duplicator in a minimum quantity of 20 units and then give them away as a bonus when someone purchased their product.

These are just a few ways to get your referral tool distributed to a wide audience using joint ventures and referral relationships.

Success is Something YOU Attract!

While browsing YouTube I came across this great video
containing some wonderful advice from Jim Rohn, the well-known motivational speaker.

Enjoy!



“Success is something you attract by becoming an attractive person”
-Jim Rohn

I'm DELETING, Deleting, deleting Links!

Time to clean house... I spent way too much time focusing on time wasters in the past. I had signed up for numerous money making schemes and affiliate programs. If you're a regular reader, I'm sure that you noticed all of the banners and buttons that had accumulated in my sidebar. I regret that I spent so much time applying for and adding those links a few months ago when I first started this blog.
I originally wanted this to be a place where you could find legitimate ways to earn a living from the comfort of your home. And that's exactly what I am going to continue doing. But I want this blog to contain nothing more than quality information that you can rely on. In the next few days you are going to notice many more banners disappearing. I am taking the time to log into each account, and if I haven't earned any money or gotten any referrals, that button will be gone! My focus will be entirely on educating you on things that are working for me.
So, I'm hoping to have this site cleaned up by the end of the week. No more clutter! No more waiting for this site to load because of all the data! This blog will undergo a total makeover... and I would love to hear from you to see what you think about the new look. So check back soon... Until then... I would like to leave you with some food for thought with one of my favorite new quotes:
"Appreciation wins over self-promotion every time!"

The One True Secret to Referral Success!

Your success in your business life will depend largely on your network of people that know you.

It was once asked of President Bush Sr. what single factor he could attribute to him becoming president of the United States.

His response was that he had taken note of every one he ever met and made it a point to stay in touch with them over the years.

If you want to predict a person's future income, just look at the size of their rolodex!

And To Take that One Step Further...

It's not about who you know, or who knows you, it's more about how WELL they know you!

So basically, your success boils down to two simple success factors...

Success Factor # 1 -> The number of people who know you.

Success Factor # 2 -> How well each person knows you.

The bottom line is if you have a large amount of people who know you, like you, and trust you, you'll always have all the business you can handle.

Here's the Secret Key to Having It All...

The key to putting these success factors into action lies right in your contact manager.

There's millions of dollars lying there in your contact manager and you probably don't even know it.

The secret to extracting that money and success from your rolodex and contact manager is to see it as a source for GIVING!

When you give, you'll always get.

Or as Zig Ziglar once said, "If you help enough people get what they want, you'll get everything you want."

Some Action Steps for Success.

Now that you understand the principles of success, I want to give you some very specific ACTION STEPS that you can immediately start using to attract success into your life.

Action Step # 1
Put one new quality person into your contact manager every day.

Make it a goal to meet one or two new quality people every single day and add them to your contact manager.

Action Step # 2
View your contact manager as an opportunity to give back.

Scan your contacts and ask yourself, "What can I do for someone today that will make the world a better place?" Look at your contact manager as a resource not just for
getting something, but for giving back.

Here are some suggestions for using your contact manager to give back to people.

Suggestion -> Give a referral to someone.

Suggestion -> Send a "thank you" card.

Suggestion -> Send a "thinking of you" card.

Suggestion -> Send a "I'd like to get to know you better" card.

Suggestion -> Send a compliment card.

Suggestion -> Make a phone call to "check in" with a person.

Suggestion -> Introduce a person in your network to another person in your network who you think ought to meet each other.

Suggestion -> Sponsor a networking luncheon with people in your contact manager. Send them an invitation card.

Suggestion -> Send an invitation to a person for an early "coffee meeting" to see how you can help that person.

The key is to add value to people in your contact manager without expecting anything in return.

Action Step # 3
Educate people about what you do.

Cold calling for new prospects is not necessary. You'll have access to all the resources and new
prospects you'll ever need simply using your contact manager.

Your objective is not to "sell" them, it's to get to know them better so that you can be a better resource for them.

Also, you want to "educate" them about what it is that you do and what a good referral looks like for you so when the time is right, they will be able to spot a good referral candidate for you.

Action Step # 4
Make notes in the notes section of each contact.

In your contact manager, you'll want to keep good notes about each person so that you can use that information to enhance your contact's lives.

Some of the notes that you'll want to write down are...

a. Important dates

b. Notes from past conversations.

c. Important people in their lives.

d. The date you met them.

e. What they like to do in their spare time.

Four Important Questions You Need to Ask Yourself...
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to improve the quality of the relationships with people in your network, and you don't know what to do, ask yourself these four important questions.

These questions will guide you as to what to specifically do to improve your relationship with them.

Here are the four questions...

Question # 1 - Do they know you?
Are there people in your contact manager that you've only met one time who probably don't know what you do? Have you explained what it is you do to them?

Question # 2 - Do they trust you?
Would they call you for advice or for ideas? Do they consider you a valuable resource? What have you provided to them that would prove to them your value?

Question # 3 - Do they consider you a friend?
Let's face it, people love to do business with friends. So as you go through your contact manager you should ask yourself, "What can I do to become better friends with that person?"

Question # 4 - Can they depend on you?
Do they know that you are rock solid and that you'll be there for them when they need your help?

The Big Mistake!
Too many people look at others as "people they need to sell" when they meet them, rather than NEW FRIENDS.

When you meet a person, your first inclination will be to see them as a sales opportunity. When you do that, you are basically treating them as an object.

Friends don't treat friends like objects!

Friends get to know each other. Friends build trust. Friends do things for each other. Friends have fun together.

If your friendship does turn into a "sale," then it should only be one small step in a lifelong
relationship with that person.

Summary: You Want to Focus on Five Things...
1. Adding people to your network every day.

2. Getting to know the people in your network.

3. Making sure people in your network know you and what you do.

4. Adding value to your network each day.

5. Viewing your network as an opportunity to give, rather than to get.

One Final Thought...
Harvey McKay, the author of the bestselling book, "Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive" has said, "If I were being mugged and I had to make a choice of giving up my wallet or my rolodex file, I would rather lose my wallet. It would be scary, expensive, and a hassle to lose my wallet. But losing my rolodex would be devastating. I can replace all my credit cards and I can live without a few dollars, but the information and contacts I've gathered over the years is irreplaceable."

A Simple Tool for Putting This Strategy Into Action...
Creating relationships is all about touching people's lives in a meaningful way - - on a consistent basis.

I've never seen a tool that does this better, faster, cheaper and easier than SendOutCards

SendOutCards allows you to...

1. Automate your relationship building efforts.

2. Keeps track of birthdays and special occasions.

3. Act on your promptings to make someone feel special.

4. Create memorable cards that touch people's hearts.

5. Stay in touch for pennies a day!

MLM Spoof... from Todd Falcone (it's hilarious!)

I just received the funniest video via e-mail from Todd Falcone today. It read as follows:

"When something this good comes down the pipeline, how can you possibly resist getting involved?

Seriously though, whatever you do, look at this video.
It's at least worth a good belly laugh! It's my latest creation!

Seriously...if you don't laugh your rear end off at this one, I'm gonna have to go to comedy school again. Watch it. It is going to make you smile!
"



+++++++++++++++++++
TRAINING TIP OF THE DAY
Have FUN in your Business!!
+++++++++++++++++++

You've got to watch the 4-minute video above to tap into what Todd is about to say in this short training section. I've quoted him below:

"For years, I took my business very seriously...as I still do today. But, I also learned many moons ago that it was important to 'lighten up' and have a good time while going about building your enterprise.

When I began to combine my "intensity" with being light-hearted and "fun", THAT is when my business began to explode.

Remember this. People want to be surrounded by individuals who are a pleasure to be around. If you get too serious, you'll find yourself not having fun.

Enjoy the journey on your way to success. Smile and laugh a lot. It is good medicine. And...please, watch this video if you haven't already!

Now, after watching this...you might understand why I have so many people who attend my live trainings and my weekly conference calls. Feel free to forward that video to any of your network marketing friends for a good laugh. They deserve it!
"

Thanks for sharing this hilarious video Todd!

Get More Referrals Using the "Rule of 250!"

If you are struggling to generate referrals because you don't have a network of people that know you and will refer business to you, then you need to carefully read ALL of this.
_______________________
A Common Complaint...
_______________________
99% of your referrals will come from your "network" of people that know who you are and what you do.
So it's critical that you stay in touch with your network on a continual basis.
But I often hear the same common complaints from professionals who are just starting out.
I hear comments like...
"I don't know anyone, so I don't have a network."
or...
"I don't get out too much so hardly anyone knows me."
or...
"Other than my family and a few friends, I really don't know a lot of people."
Have you ever felt this way?
_____________________________________
There Is a Common Misconception...
_____________________________________
...that you don't know a lot of people.
But in fact, if you asked yourself the right questions, you would be surprised to discover that, in fact, you DO know a LOT more people than you realize.
And those people are just waiting to send you referrals, you just don't realize it ....yet.
You see, if you really thought about it, I don't care who you are, you DO KNOW a LOT of people.
___________________
The Rule of 250
___________________
In his famous book "How To Sell Anything To Anybody" Joe Girard, talks about his "Rule of 250."
The "Rule of 250" says that the average person knows around 250 people.
Joe, says that If you ask yourself questions like...
1. Who do you go to church with?
2. Who do you know at the local gym?
3. Who does your hair?
4. Who did you go to school with?
5. Who lives on your street?
6. Who are the parents of your children's friends?
7. Who were the last 20 people you sent an email to?
8. Who works at your bank?
9. Who you worked with in previous jobs?
10. Who were some of your college friends?
...you will start to discover that you DO know a LOT more people than you ever thought.
Now...
Just because you create a list of people that know you, doesn't mean that it will instantly create referrals.
But your list can become your "Golden Goose!"
________________________________________________
How to Produce Gold from Your List of Friends
________________________________________________
Ivan Misner, the Founder of BNI International has a great quote. He says...
"It's not what you know and it's not who you know, it's how well you know them."
You see, the gold is in the RELATIONSHIP you have with your list.
In many instances, it's not necessarily the size of your list that's important, it's how well you know the people on your list.
The better the relationship you have with them, the more referrals you'll receive from them.
So after you've created your list, you need to re-warm it back up and the best way I know to do that is to contact each of them and let them know how much you appreciate them.
________________________________________________
Appreciation Wins Out Over Self-Promotion Every Time!________________________________________________
It's true.
People are tired of all the self-promotion, hype, in-your-face marketing stuff.
They want to know that someone cares about them.
That's why I use PoweredByCards.com every single day in my own business.
With the simple push of a button, PoweredByCards.com allows me to express my feelings of appreciation, in a personal and heartfelt way, with my entire list of friends and associates.
How good is that?
Every day, I wake up and send out at least 2 unexpected cards to people that I care about.
That one habit has reaped great rewards for me, both personally and professionally.
If you're not using PoweredByCards.com yet, why?
_____________________________
What Is Holding You Back?
_____________________________
If it's the cost, then you need to think about how much money you're LOSING right now, by not building relationships of trust with people using this simple system.
I can guarantee you...
...what you'll gain in referrals will massively outweigh what you'll invest for a license to use the PoweredByCards.com system.
Isn't it time you made the move and invested in PoweredByCards.com?
Thanks for taking the time to read all of this... If you're still with me, I'd love to give you a free trial so that you can send a couple of cards out for free on me!

Grow Your Business with Greeting Cards

Sending Greeting Cards
WILL
Increase Your Profits
Retain Your Customers
Get Referrals

Greeting cards are a great way to stay in touch with your customers and an excellent way to expand your business. Like any other business, home-based business entrepreneurs also need to develop strong relationships with their customers and referrers to grow a thriving business.

Remember the 80/20 rule?

80% of your business will come from 20% of your customers.

The most effective group to market to are the customers that you already have. Your existing clients are your marketing goldmine. The trouble is you don’t know which clients will fall into that 20%. The key is to treat them all like friends of the family. And one of the most effective ways is to stay in touch with your customers by sending greeting cards! Show them just how much you appreciate their loyalty and business!

Greeting cards will help you:
  • Build your business
  • Retain more existing customers
  • Expand your referral network
  • Have more free time for your family, yourself and your other interests
  • Protect your business from competition

Make your greeting card marketing work

Keep the overt marketing to a minimum. You don't EVER want your customer to feel like the greeting card is a sales pitch.

Sending greeting cards is an effective way to strengthen the relationships you already have with your customers, which will ultimately grow your business!

"Offer your customers a long-term Relationship,
then do everything possible to build and maintain it."
-Brian Tracy

Fact: 66% of all prospects come from word-of-mouth referrals.

That's two thirds of your business!

How do YOU make sure your clients are singing your praises?

Does that client you serviced two years ago remember you fondly?

If you would like to know more about how Greeting Cards can work for you, please visit my website: http://www.socreview.com/PoweredByCards

You'll create waves of excitement and opportunity with our Greeting Cards!

Don't ever quit on a bad day!

If you are new to building a network marketing business, here are a few things to realize:

1. Don't forget, YOUR BUSINESS RUNS IN CYCLES (like the seasons). You will have up cycles and down cycles. When it seems that no one is working, stay in motion and your business will re-emerge stronger than ever before. Don't ever quit on a bad day! A good day is always just around the corner!

2. Typically, it's only ONE PERSON that WILL BREAK YOU LOOSE - You will learn of people that will sign up anywhere from 3 months to as much as 2 years after hearing about it and will go on to build groups of thousands of people! You will never know who that one person might be. So, make sure you are working and active when they come back . . . if not they will sign up under someone else!

I have a UNIQUE opportunity to share with you! Here's a little background on it:

* We're entering into the momentum phase (explosive expansion)
* We have a cutting edge compensation structure
* A very Unique Product
* There's absolutely No Competition (this is the only company of it's kind in network marketing)
* ANYONE can find a use for this, regardless of your current profession!
* It's not just a paycheck, It's a movement!

Referral Marketing - The Most Powerful Form of Advertising

Practice these referral marketing techniques and your business will explode with new customers
By John Jantsch


Business owners tell me everyday that the way they generate the most new business is through referral marketing. Yet they don't seem to grasp the power of this statement. Few if any businesses harness the true power of referrals by making the receiving of systematic referrals a cornerstone of their marketing efforts.

First let me tell you why you need to do this.

1. Referrals are credible right from the start. When a trusted friend tells you about a business you transfer that trust to this company...even if you've never heard of them before.

2. People who are referred to a business tend to spend more money. Research has proven this beyond the shadow of a doubt and it is likely because people tend to refer other who are highly qualified and not just tire kickers or price shoppers.

3. Referrals are very cost-effective. In some cases free or a fraction of what you might pay in advertising costs.

In some industries, like consulting and professional services most companies are chosen solely on the recommendation of a friend.

Are you getting your referrals...if not consider these little ideas.

1. Expect to get referrals but don't assume you will. Talk about them early and often and build them into your sales and marketing efforts...don't wait for people to offer them.

2. Create a system. It can be as simple as advertising $20 for every referral.

3. Follow-up by phone or mail asking for referrals

4. Give every client 3 business cards. Look in your drawer you've got hundreds. Give them out to clients and they may just pass them along.

Referrals are essential to your business so don't overlook them chasing the newest trend in marketing in your industry.

I had the privilege of meeting the CEO and Founder of Yahoo! Inc., Jerry Yang, yesterday at Camp Yahoo! 2008 (the company's annual summer picnic). Yahoo! is the reason that we transplanted out here to Silicon Valley in January. My husband accepted an offered position with the company last year. It has been a big adjustment for us, leaving friends behind in the Chicago area, but the Bay Area is wonderful! And Yahoo! is taking good care of us while I'm pursuing my entrepreneurial dreams as well!

Dream, Share, & Lead!

To become a successful builder, you must be able to do 3 things consistently. That is to be able to Dream, Share, and Lead... Doing these 3 things will dramatically improve the quality of your life!

Dreaming
is where it starts! You must exercise your dream muscles daily and realize that the dreams we have, create the framework for everything we desire. It's also important to understand that it doesn't really matter if we believe our dreams to be true or not. The mind doesn't know the difference between what's real and what's not. So write down your dreams! The bigger the better!

The next step is Sharing! As you share your dreams with others, your dreams will grow in intensity, building momentum! The movement and direction of your dreams will have much more intensity when you share them with others. This applies to any business and any dream!

Last but not least, Lead! As leaders we take responsibility for our teams. If you don't see yourself as a leader, this may be the reason that you haven't achieved what you want in your life! You must see yourself as a Leader first! Whether you lead your family, business or team, declaring yourself as a leader is essential to building your success. Leaders take responsibility for where they are and where they're going. Leaders dream and shape their own destiny! Leaders are creative and resourceful! Leaders share their vision!

So in conclusion... Dream, Share, and Lead!

A Safe, Green & Clean Home Business Opportunity

Did you know that the levels of pollutants in our indoor air is 5 times more than the level you’ll find outside? It's also a fact that women who work at home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer than women who work outside the home. (This can be specifically attributed to the contact they have with household cleaning products).
There are 73 million homes with children under the age of 18. Poison Control reports that 121,197 children under the age of six were poisoned by household cleaners just last year. The other issue with household cleaners today is that asthma rates are also escalating far beyond what any scientists can explain. Scientist believe that asthmatic reactions can be exacerbated by the kinds of cleaning products that people have in their homes.
So, there are all kinds of health issues and problems that involve our little ones that are crawling around on our floors and breathing in the fumes from the products we are using. I believe it's our responsibility to really share this information with other moms out there, because most consumers have no idea that the things they're using in their homes can actually cause them harm. People assume that most products that they buy should be totally fine for them to use in their homes, and that's simply not the case.
I would love to share a safe, "green" cleaning alternative with you... Changing the products you use can really change your life as well as being safer for our planet. Please take a moment to visit my safe, "green" cleaning site.
I say "green" because, just one of our household cleaning Starter Kits does the equivalent of these 3 things:
  • eliminating 108 pounds of packaging waste
  • eliminating 248 pounds of greenhouse gas
  • ...and the equivalent to planting 10 trees
You can also listen to a 3 minute recorded message that gives you an overview on our products. Just dial 1-925-924-3000
Won't you consider joining my team, or at least just buying a product that is safer for you, your home and our planet! Contact me for more info!

Please take 30 seconds to get involved...




If you know anyone who has had a Mastectomy, you may know that there is a lot of discomfort and pain afterwards. Infact, a dear friend of mine back home had to have a double mastectomy just last year. Although hard to believe, insurance companies are trying to make mastectomies an outpatient procedure. Let's give women the chance to recover properly in the hospital for at least 2 days after surgery. Please take the time to make a difference! Please copy this to your blogs and/or send this to everyone in your address book. If there was ever a time when our voices and choices should be heard, this is one of those times. If you're still reading this, I hope you'll take 30 seconds to vote on this issue and pass it on to others you know who will do the same. There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which will require insurance companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital stay for patients undergoing a mastectomy. It's about eliminating the 'drive-through' Mastectomy where women are forced to go home just a few hours after surgery, against the wishes of their doctor, still groggy from anesthesia and sometimes with drainage tubes still attached. Lifetime Television has put this bill on their Web page with a petition drive to show support. Last year over half the House signed on. Please Sign the petition by clicking on the link below. You need not give more than your name, state, and zip code.

Sign The Petition Here

PLEASE PASS THIS ON to your friends and family, and on behalf of ALL women, THANK-YOU!

A Green Opportunity!

Ever since moving here to California, I've developed a new attitude toward the foods we eat and the health we have in this country. It seems that everywhere I turn, people are talking about "Going Green"! As a result, I've begun to seek better health for myself as well as developing an environmental responsibility. Being a stay-at-home Mom, I'm also working towards earning some extra cash from home. So it felt only natural when I found a home-based business where I could combine all of the above into one package.
I'm so glad I have been blessed with the opportunity to be able to give up rush hour traffic and corporate demands. I'm passionate about creating a new life with this company and am ready to share what they have to offer with everyone I meet (especially other Moms). I'm ready to help anyone build better health, wealth ... or BOTH! I know that if I can do this ANYONE can! We are all a part of the
NEXT GENERATION WHO WANT IT ALL, AND I BELIEVE I HAVE FOUND A COMPANY THAT OFFERS IT ALL!
I feel
empowered by our company's vision for what we can do to make this country and this world a better place! I feel like I'm on a mission to educate and help other Moms to have better health and the opportunity to be a WAHM (work-at-home mom) all at the same time! My hope is that you'll let me help you succeed in personal, environmental and financial health.
To find out more about what I do, feel free to contact me by visiting "
...going "GREEN" couldn't be easier!" or click on the button below! Then click on Contact Me at the top of the page!

The clean-up has begun

Well, I finally started the clean-up on my blog here to remove some of the programs that haven't produced anything and/or weren't worth the time and effort needed to make them work (at least in my opinion).
The first to go was TrafficZap Exchange. It may have generated a little traffic, but the pop-under was so annoying! Those of you that frequent my blog would probably agree, but I thank you for putting up with it until I came to my senses! It seemed to slow down the loading time of my page as well as interfering with my ability to click on links, etc... So... It had to go!
The next on the list was the Gomez PEER. They claim that you can earn cash for every minute your PC is on and connected to the Internet by running the Gomez PEER. They also claim that you will help them provide the most realistic picture of Web performance. Well, after the first night of running it I was ready to give up! My pc kept crashing and it took quite awhile just to earn one cent! I also noticed where they state "Be rewarded simply for being online! Earn over $1 per month just for having your PC online 20 hours a day!" Are they kidding??? $1 per month??? Needless to say, I canceled my account tonight and forfeited the whole 2 cents that I had earned. It definitely wasn't worth the headaches.
Anyways, there will be more clean-ups to report as soon as I sort through them. I will keep you posted on which ones I'm terminating and my reasons for dropping them.
I will also let you know what will be staying. And for all of my loyal Entrecard droppers out there... I am keeping Entrecard!
It treats me well and I can credit alot of my recent traffic to them. I myself may not be dropping as much as I did when I first joined Ecard, because it can become quite addicting. But I do think it's worth hanging onto. My newest goal with Ecard is to actually aim for more quality traffic now, and not just get the "hit and runners"...
That's all for tonight... I've really got to try and catch up on some sleep. It's been a busy week! I spent Tuesday evening at the Castro Valley Mom's Club's Pamper Night event. I had one of the vendor display tables set up with my Gourmet Candles. It was a fun event and I loved having the opportunity to share my Organic Scents with all the mommies... I'll try to post a few pictures of my display tomorrow. I haven't had a chance to download them yet. Until then... I hope you're all having a great week!

Helping Others Succeed

Today I would like to share an encouraging word that I received from Joel Osteen Ministries.

"God's system works on the principle of sowing and reaping. What
you pour out will come back to you in increased measure. When you give
generously, a generous harvest will return to you. When you help
others succeed, you will find abundant success on your path, too. What
are you investing in the lives of the people around you? Are you
helping others get ahead? There are people in your life who hold the
keys for you to reach your full potential. These are people that God
has placed in your life for you to help along. The higher they rise
up, the higher you will rise up. When you give generously of your
time, talent, and resources, you are setting yourself up for greater
success. People will come across your path that will help you grow and
reach your full potential. But you have to do your part to step out
and sow the seed. Be on the lookout for ways you can help others. As
you give of yourself to help others grow, you'll rise higher and
live the abundant life He has in store for you."



Today's Scripture:

"Send your grain across the seas, and in time, profits will flow
back to you" (Ecclesiastes 11:1 NLT).

My Quest for Comments

In an effort to get some reader participation here, I'm posting these 10 Tips To Get More Blog Comments that I received in an e-mail from Popular Wealth's Stuff to Blog About! I also learned alot from these tips and will be taking action on some of them as well...

Did you know that between 95% and 99% of internet visitors will not leave a blog comment!

Almost all blog visitors are lurkers and a very small percentage of those visitors will take the time to leave blog comments or to interact with your site in general. In fact your blog’s most loyal followers will leave the majority of your blogs comments despite representing only a small portion of it’s total visitors.

The following 10 tips should help you generate more blog comments.


1 - Make it easy to leave blog comments.
A simple and clean comments template located at the end of every blog post works best. You’d be surprised at how many people refuse to leave a comment if they need to enter answers to questions, navigate pop-up windows and figure out what some blurry letters spell. Keep it clean and simple.

2 - Ask for visitors to leave comments on your blog.
You’ll notice an instant boost in the number of comments you receive if you simply ask for visitors to leave their opinions. Don’t be dramatic about it but a subtle “I’d love to get reader feedback on this” or other similar request works wonders in blog posts. Asking for comments is a call to action.

3 - Enable Gravatars on your blog.
Gravatars, also known as globally recognized avatars, allow visitors to display a custom avatar next to their comment. For more information visit gravatar.com

4 - Reward visitors who leave blog comments.
You can reward good blog comments, or regular commenters, in a variety of ways. Widgets exist for example that display the names of those who have left the most comments. Perhaps even more effective would be to simply write ‘great comment’ when you come across one that stands out, don;t overdo the praise however or it becomes worthless.

5 - Interact with your visitors.
YOU should probably be your blogs most prolific comment writer. Visitors will often have questions or opinions to share, take the time to answer questions.

6 - Humility.
I personally avoid leaving a comment on a blog when the post author acts as if they know everything and are always right. If I see an author tear into someone who doesn’t agree with them, I’m likely leaving for good if I’m a first time reader. Accept criticism and learn from visitors as much as they learn from you.

7 - Comment on other blogs.
Get active by choosing a handful of other blogs on your subject and interact with them by leaving comments. Keep it short, concise and make sure you share your opinion. I’d recommend keeping things light but sometimes being controversial works too, if you can keep from becoming annoying. Your goal is to become a regular and allow visitors of other sites to get to know you.

8 - Clean up your blog.
The Feedburner Chicklet that says you have 7 subscribers is a stain, get rid of it. Pop up or pop under ads, annoying! Cheap articles that took no thought to create mixed in with 500 ads? yuck! Before you get regular visitors, you have a lot of first impressions to make. Clean and simple with neutral colors and a lot of white works best, take advantage and remove any extra code to speed things up at the same time.

9 - Set a goal and blog about it.
Readers will remember and may very well check in again to see how it’s going. They may not care how YOUR blog is doing, in fact they likely will be seeing if what you’re doing works for their own reasons, but it doesn’t matter. Make an impression by following through with your goals.

10 - Write solid articles.
Write blog posts that don’t sound like dictionary dribble and make sure they engage your readers attention by making them think. A reader with questions and opinions is more likely to interact with your blog.

11 - Yes, 11, you didn’t think there were just 10 ways did you?
Multi-task! If you’re looking for articles that interest you on other blogs so that you can leave some comments of your own… multi-task. Find articles with pagerank that don’t use nofollow if getting pagerank is your thing. Find articles that use the top commentators plug-in if raising technorati rank is your thing. Find articles about technology or webmaster related issues if you want to give your Alexa rank a boost. Just make sure you actually have something worthwhile to add. Not all blogs are created equal, some have side benefits.

12 - I reserved this spot just for you,
Share something that works by leaving a comment below and I’ll add it to the list. What has worked for you on your blog?

Time for some Spring Cleaning!

As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm going to be cleaning up this blog a bit... I'll be removing some of the things that aren't really worth my time and adding some things that I believe will produce more for me. And speaking of being more productive, I feel that de-cluttering the workspace is definitely something that will improve my productivity... I'll admit it, I'm a pack-rat! And the clutter just seems to accumulate exactly where I don't need it, causing distraction and frustration!
Whether you have an entire room or just a desk, make it a place where you like to be. Clutter can often make us feel out of control and overwhelmed. Nowhere in the house is this truer than in the home office. Once all the paper clutter is filed or thrown away take the time to beautify your workspace. I’m certainly not saying to go out and buy all new office supplies! Rather add some finishing touches from throughout the house. A picture frame with your child's photograph, a potted plant, flowers, candles, a pretty coffee cup for storing your pens, will all do the trick!
So let's all take advantage of the "Spring Cleaning" season, to clean up our lives and brighten our days! This might even cause us to find more inspiration and motivation to work toward those goals we're all striving to achieve!

Who am I and why am I working from home?

I started this blog back in March of 2007, but didn't really do much with it. I think I posted about 5 times during the whole year! But then in March of 2008 I actually began posting regularly... Until now I haven't shared much of my personal life with you, but that's about to change. I feel it's important to form a relationship with your readers and to let them know that "Hey, I'm a real person"! =)
So, the first thing I'd like to share with you is my "Why" for doing what I'm doing with this blog. And why do I call myself Bay Area Mompreneur?
Well, my "Why" is simple... I am doing this for my family! Specifically my two little ones pictured here.
I've been a stay-at-home mom ever since my daughter Caitlin (on the left) was born... She's now 4 and Brandon is 2. Until then, I was a cosmetologist/hair dresser working at Sport Clips in Edmond, Oklahoma!
I feel it's important to be home for my kiddos and wouldn't want it any other way! Working from home is giving me the ability to do just that. As you have probably already figured out, I've got several projects I'm working on... and believe me, they do keep me busy! That's why I'm actually re-evaluating some of the things I've got going. I'm going to be revamping this blog soon and removing some of the items that I've found to be "Big Time Wasters" (at least in my opinion). I'll share with you what those are and the reason I'm dropping them as it happens. At the same time, I will also share with you the things that are working for me. And I will be putting more time and effort into those opportunities.
For tonight, one of the first things I'll share with you is that I just joined the Berry Tree and Nutronix a couple of weeks ago. I look forward to exploring the companies in more depth and growing my business with them while improving my health. They offer an exclusive line of over 20 unique natural nutritional supplements. Visit my Berry Tree site and/or my Nutronix site to learn more about what they have to offer!
And now, why do I call myself Bay Area Mompreneur? You can read more about the definition and meaning of Mompreneur by visiting What is a Mompreneur? It describes me perfectly! I've been a part of numerous home-based-businesses, I sell on eBay and Craigs List, I'm a fiber artist (knitting and crocheting) and I enjoy making jewelry to sell on Etsy. I'm also constantly on the look out for lucrative ways to monetize my websites as I own several domains and have a couple of online boutiques in the works. I'll be sharing these with you in the future.

As for the Bay Area part... We recently moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, CA (Silicon Valley) because my husband was hired by YAHOO!!! The company moved us out here at the end of December. We actually spent New Years Eve in a Hotel in Cheyenne, Wyoming. We had movers that moved our "Stuff" for us, but we chose to drive our own cars out here. We took 4 days to drive from Aurora, Illinois, to the Bay Area. There was snow on the ground the whole way! But anyhow, that's how I have now become a "Bay Area Mompreneur"! Besides that, I thought it had a nice ring to it!
Well, enough said for tonight... I just wanted to put myself out there and share a bit of my personal side with you all... I look forward to getting to know you all as well! Until next time...

New Professional Marketing System Explodes your Income!

The real secret to making money online has nothing to do with your site or the product you sell...... Fact!

What really makes the difference as to whether you make money or go bust is all dependent on how many people see your site each day.

If you only get 10 to 100 people per day that visit your site, you might as well give up now.

What if you could get 1 million visitors in the next 30 days? Would that make your sales increase?

What if you could guarantee that all these visitors were real people, and they would be on your site for at least 10 seconds each? And what if you could get all this completely free?

Would your bank balance be able to take the strain as the sales poured in?

There's an incredible new marketing system that can easily and very realistically send you over a million guaranteed real visitors to your website, and it won't cost you a thing.

All you have to do is check out T-2000 Ultra!

This is going to change the way you market forever!

    Pilikana and a unique Affiliate program



    Pilikana offers you opportunities to earn income by referring members to their website.

    Pilikana's revenue source is displaying advertisements such as Google ads. Instead of paying you a fixed amount per referred member, Pilikana uses a different method that will allow you to share part of that revenue. Every time a member's profile is displayed, Pilikana will display some advertisements contextually related to that profile. If the viewer clicks on the ad, Pilikana earns income. If that member is referred by you and you provide your Google AdSense JavaScript code to them when you join as an affiliate, Pilikana will display your ad and you will get the opportunity to earn income. Currently affiliates get 10% of the ad impressions. That means if you refer a member and his or her profile is viewed 100 times, your ad will get 10 impressions. You can potentially earn income from all these 10 impressions.

    This method means a significant benefit to you. With the traditional commission method, you will only earn more if you refer more people. With our method, your potential income doesn't solely depends on the number of the members your refer. Your income potential is unlimited even if you only refer a few members but their profiles become very popular.

    When you join as an affiliate, you will be asked to enter your Google AdSense JavaScript code. Pilikana will automatically select an appropriate format for the page where the ad is displayed.

    Automatically Make $1336 per month with the Berry Tree

    I just joined a brilliant company that actually Guarantees Your Success!
    I learned about this Newest Division of an 8-Year-Old, Debt Free, Global Leader through the Home Business Connection magazine.
    At first it sounded too good to be true... Even my own husband is skeptical... There are so many scams out there! But I did some research on the net, made the call, and even spoke with someone on the phone that has been doing this for about a year. Needless to say, I have decided to go ahead and take that leap of faith. So, I signed up last night. Even my husband says that if it REALLY works he is definitely going to join as well. He's just waiting to see my paycheck stubs first! hehe...
    Anyways, they're the only company that builds a business FOR you!
    With their one of a kind, patent pending, business opportunity, you will earn on EVERY member in the company.
    You don't ever have to recruit anyone or sell anything!
