Should I Co-sign A loan, credit card, or Apartment for a Family member?

If you’re a parent then I suggest to add your kids on your credit accounts as authorize user.  This will build up their credit, so you as the parent will not need to co-sign for their student loans, cars, and apartments. 

Now, if you have a family member or love one that having credit issues and they ask if you would sign for them a car, credit card, or apartment, then I would suggest you not to do it.  The reason is that it could ruin the relationship.  For example, if a family needs to move into a new apartment and they ask you to co-sign and you decide to do it.  If that person loses his or her job, then you’ll be stuck with making the payments or ruining your personal credit and the relationship.

I always suggest if a person is having credit issues offer to help them repair their personal credit, if they refuse, then you know that person is not the one to be offering help too.  Some may argue that you should look at how financially responsible the person is in order to determine if it’s worth you putting your good personal credit on the line.  However, you must factor in that things could happen to the person or their employment and that may leave you on the hook for extra bills.

So, in conclusion, I would suggest find other ways to help them, rather reserve the relationship then jeopardize personal credit if the person is not will to fix their own credit.

Read more… 5 Reasons Internet Marketers Fail in Business.

In this video I discuss why Internet Marketers fail in business and how to avoid these failures.
1. Internet Marketers or online marketers don't know how to properly structure their business.  They seek out help from companies like Legal Zoom to help them structure the business.  However, companies customer support  does not understand that their is more things that go along with structuring the business then just filing some secretary of state paperwork.  The clients business must be properly registered online in multiple data bases, so the company can get the exposure it needs from 3rd party companies.

2.  Many internet marketers don't use their own products.  This is a problem because if you don't know your product then it becomes challenging then to get someone else to purchase and use your product.  The force their products on potential customers not knowing if that  product it right for that customers.

3.  Internet Marketers need to build relationships with their customers.  Building a good relationship before and after they purchase from you.  This help builds the customer confidense that they made the right choice in purchasing from you. You never want a customer to have buyers remorse, because you never communicated with them after they purchased from you. 

Although, many of them may not use the products giving them a follow up call or sending them an email shows that you were interested in their purchase, and you want to see if they make have an issue with the product.

4. Learning how to manage the business.  A lot of internet marketer don't treat this as their business. They look at it as away to earn some extra cash with out the responsibility. Understanding they may be using it as a career change, it still is a business.

You still need to invest in the business, whether it may be education or software to help you run the business much soother.  Their accounting and taxes to be paid for what ever income that's generated from the business.

5. Many internet marketers want instant success.  They don't realize it takes time to grow the business in order for your to have success in it.  It's not easy, it's a growing and learning process.  We would all like to have short cuts in business, but it could lead us to a loss.

I encourage you to join the business credit forum to get access to more videos and other resources to help you grow your business.

  •  Get your Hair Business started for $19.95
    Here is a great example of how you can create yourself some GREAT income
    with Micore Intl!!!
    While we wait on the Retail Shopping Cart to come online, let’s not forget Micoré is NOT just about RETAILING! Selling hair to your own clients sounds nice and prestigious, but what is more important….a BUSINESS CARD….. or a BIG CHECK?

    If you had 10 clients buy hair from you each week, and you averaged $50 per client, you’d earn $500. At $75 per client that’s $750. Yet in order to have 10 clients buying from you every week….you’d have to have 60 clients consistently buying from you every 6 weeks! THAT’S NOT EASY TO DO FOR ANYONE! For $750 a week?

    What if you signed up 10 Consultants into Micoré?
    You give up the Coded Bonus on your first 2, and are “Coded” to everyone you enroll after your first 2! SO YOU’D BE CODED TO 8 NEW CONSULTANTS, RIGHT?

    Those 10 pay anywhere from $19.95 to $325.00 to enroll!
    3 pay $325.00 ($81.25+$32.50= $113.75) Total $341.25
    2 pay $175.00 ($43.75+$17.50= $61.25) Total $122.50
    1 pays $195.00 ($48.75+$19.50= $68.25) Total $68.25
    2 pay $70.00 ($17.50+$7.00= $24.50) Total $49.00
    2 pay $19.95 (your 1st two paid $19.95)
    YOU EARNED $581.00
    (25% Fast Start + 10% Coded Bonus in above examples)

    (REMEMBER: If someone Joins for $325 Product Pack. All they have to do is enroll 4 New Consultants for $325 each and that NEW REP earns $390!
    ($81.25 x 4 + $32.50 x 2 = $390!)

    Not bad, and of course the numbers could be higher or lower, but look what happens NEXT….

    The 8 Consultants you are Coded to are on a MISSION to get 4 each…and YOU are Motivated to HELP THEM because their FIRST 2 go to you!

    Those 8 each enroll at least 2 each….so they bring you 16!
    Now those 8 have done their job and you have 16 to work with!
    (Not that you have to help each one of them!)
    Those 16 bring you 32 New Coded Consultants….3rd GEN
    Those 32 bring you 64 New Coded Consultants….4th GEN
    Those 64 bring you 128 New Coded Consultants….5th GEN
    Those 128 bring you 256 New Coded Consultants….6th GEN
    Those 256 bring you 512 New Coded Consultants….7th GEN
    What if 100 of them sold or purchased $300 in hair in month?
    $30,000 x 10% Coded Bonus means YOU EARNED $3,000!
    What if you did that weekly?
    What if 200 of them purchased or sold hair or products? 500?
    What if the average purchase was $400 instead of $300?

    Let’s not forget that this is only ONE of the ways Micoré PAYS!

    Can you see how HUGE it can become if you choose to BUILD A TEAM?

    Retailing BY YOURSELF is much harder!

Everything in this world seem to cost. I have been researching the World Wide Webb for around 4 years for making more money opportunities and I have found so many scams, programs to join that cost anywhere from $25 -$499 and up to $5000 or more just to join  not even getting set up,or after I got in that I was not interested in it.

Once I got there I did not know what to do and of course if I needed help it cost more money, more money, and more money; I am talking about at the beginning everyone know on down the road you need to upgrade to improve your quantity of money but at the beginning it sometimes for some people ( especially with the economy and people business having to close) it needs to have a very low cost to get started and free would be great but you also need most of the time especially at the very beginning someone to either hold your hand showing you or give you setup by step easy to understand and be able to follow instructions so you will have your foundation set right to make your money grow like you want it too. Most of the time even when you pay all the money they want you to shell out you still don't get the complete blue print of step by step instructions to follow through with.

But I have found it and it is Free to join and Free step by step video instruction so simple as though you may not be experienced with the internet or working on a computer. 

Just listen and follow the Complete instructions and soon you will be making money for your self or for your business. You might need to upgrade your brick and mortar business or your internet business but what ever you need or want the extra money for this will help you. This one is for real so if you would like to check it out for your self or for a friend here is the link: http// 

Don't shut down now just follow through with it completely and give your self a chance to change your life style or help keep your life style up that your or already use too.

Oh, Very Important in the beginning make sure you write down on your agenda or calendar the date you are suppose to cancel subscriptions if you indeed want to cancel and than cancel before the end of the free trial or You will be Charged a Fee for the subscription you forgot to Cancel. These are companies that already have a large marketing budget for you to subscribe to there free trials. 

Go to this link  and it will fully and completely explain every detail of what, when, where, and how to get started making You some Money.

One hour might be fine for you every other day; you know your goals and how much you will want to be earning daily, weekly, and monthly.

Simple Savings Strategies

A savings fund is your best defense against forces that seek to derail your debt free momentum. Yes! Forces intent on keeping you mired in money mishaps, floundering in financial fiascos, or let’s face it – deep in debt are real. Alliterative exercises aside, a savings fund is a must have. It’s just not always an easy must do.

Before tackling a debt repayment plan, set up a Mad Money Fund. This fund should contain at least $1000 (depending on your comfort level). Some balk at the low figure, but consider your recent emergencies. Would $1000 have been sufficient? Don’t dread using the cushion in a genuine emergency. The Mad Money Fund exists so you avoid the madness when emergencies happen.

  1. Start your budget. The quickest way to give yourself a raise is to tell your money where to go. You do that with a budget.
  2. Setup auto saving. Redirect money to your savings using automatic tools. You don’t miss what you don’t see.
  3. Sell everything. What are you hoarding that can be converted into cash? Ebay. Craig’s List. Garage Sale. Clean house and build your savings.
  4. Stash windfalls. Do you have a lump some coming? Instead of spending before you receive, plan on using that to pad your savings.
  5. Seek extra income. Do you have a marketable service? Hire yourself out. Secure part-time income and save up.

Trying to pay off debt without a savings stash is like filling a leaky bucket. Eventually, frustration may cause you to give up completely. The Mad Money Fund will help you avoid using credit so emergencies don’t derail your debt repayment plans.

Do you have other simple savings strategies to share?

Read more… 1-800-652-7157 In this video, I explain, why many businesses fail.

Many people imagine having a business already exstablished just like a full grown plant.  However, they don't full understand that they must do the following steps in order to see it grow to its full maturity.  Lets look at how you grow a plant. You pour the dirt, plant the seed, your water it often so it won't die. So basically you have to take time to nourish the business just like a plant.

There are specific reasons a businesses fail.  It starts with money.  Most people will borrow from their retirement plan or 401k, they borrow from their friends, family and relatives, the borrow from their saving and credit card.  

Now they've dumped all this money into a business that sells tangible products.  When they need money to restock they have no one to fund their business.  Another reason many businesses fail is because of the market they are trying to cater to may not be responding to their product.  For instance you can not stick a Louis Vuitton store in the hood, because people making between 25k to 35k don't have the means to buy 1k purses.  

Another reason many businesses fail is because of their product.  Most people sell a product because of the trend and it's making money now. However if you learn to do what you love and make that a product then you'll have less competition.  Especially if you further your education on that product.  Stop doing thing because it's trendy and making money now educatte your self on what it is you love to do and you'll always make money in your market.  

I get calls from a lot of people that want to get into real estate however they know very little about real estate investing.  They have very little knowledge  about buying a property and what is it going to take to get that property back on the mark to get a good rate of return.  Now with wall street buying residentual real estate from the banks for pennies on the dollar it better to focus on buying commercial real estate..  You get about 5 or 6 partners together and buy a strip mall and rent it out to people that are starting new business.  

I hope this video was informative to someone, thank you.

The DOs and DON'Ts of Blogging

Alright, well SOME Dos and Don'ts for blogging. Of course there are A LOT of things you should and shouldn't do when it comes to blogging. At this point you should already have an idea of what you are going to blog about. I am going to point out a few of the important Dos and Don’ts. Let's start with the DON'Ts.


Spend ALL day online. First your eyes will start to hurt and then you will start to experience horrible headaches. LOL! This is what happens when you sit in front of a computer screen all day. Searching, writing, reading, watching. At some point during the day, you have to give it a rest. The great thing about the Internet is that what you are looking for will always be there. Go back to it later. If it is taking you more than an hour to write a blog posting (unless in depth research is involved), you need to change the subject.

Plagiarize. Duh. Just like in school, you cannot do this. You would be breaking the law if you did. AND for the record, there is a difference between copy writing and plagiarizing (you can research those). You can always get ideas from other bloggers, but never ever copy anything from their posts WITHOUT recognizing them.

Waste time in forums and communities. You are going to hear a lot of people suggest you do this. But my suggestion is to find 3 to 4 forums or small social networks you like. Share the same postings from your blog with these select forums, on a regular basis. You may not be recognized at first, but eventually they will notice you.

Spam. Not only is this annoying but it’s bad “etiquette”, if you will, for bloggers. One example of spamming is coldly commenting in a forum or on another bloggers site and including your website information:


NOT cool. Another form of spamming is sending your blogs to people that didn't ask to read them. Post them on your blog, forums and communities. If people are interested in reading them they will find you.

Post every day. Not only does that put a lot of pressure on you, but people don’t have time to read your posts daily. Think of all of the online publications, newsletters and bloggers you are subscribed to. If they send you information everyday, do you actually read it? The truth is, NO. So don’t put your readers through that. Give them something to look forward to every week. Now on to the DOs!


Get advise from an experienced blogger. If there are certain blogs you have found that you really like, take it upon yourself to email the blogger and see if they would mentor you. Find a good business coach that may be able to help you focus in on what your goals are.

Ask for feedback. NOT from people in the forums you choose, but from your family and friends. They are our toughest critics. So, if they have suggestions or opinions about your blog posting, take it in stride. Don't take EVERYTHING to heart and change everything they think you should, but you should definitely take their suggestions into consideration.

Be patient. I say this all the time: Just because you create a blog or website and throw it out on the WORLD WIDE WEB (notice the word, WORLD), doesn't mean people are going to flock to it. It will take a little time to build popularity but it is definitely possible. You just have to be patient and keep posting and keep directing people to your site.

Write UNIQUE and CREATIVE content. Even if you know what you are going to write about, you need to make sure it is DIFFERENT from everyone else's. Also, you do not have to write about the SAME subject in every posting if you do not want. Make it interesting for your readers so they will keep coming back for more.

Get paid for blogging. Well yeah! What other reason would you be blogging for? There are several ways you can get paid to blog. One way, is to get advertisers on your site, that will take some time to happen, but it is definitely possible. Another way to get paid for blogging is to find a blogging platform that will pay you to actually blog and show others how to do the same. I use a great system that does just that. You can sign in and find out more here => BeFamousOnline2

Blogging does not have to be difficult or tedious. It can actually be fun to share with others your life, opinion or information that could help them. You just need to keep in mind some DOs and DON'Ts so you can be a SUCCESSFUL blogger.

Alright. Maybe you're not famous yet. But if you are striving to be, these tips may help you move toward your goal.

Blogging Tip #1: Choose the best time to blog- As I have stated before, it is not necessary to blog everyday. As you may overwhelm your readers (unless you are a gossip blog). However you should come up with a day or two throughout the week that works best for you. Make sure you post EVERY week on those days, so your readers know when to expect something from you.

Blogging Tip #2: Work with someone who knows what they are doing- Just like famous people have managers and agents, you need a coach to help you build your blog, business, or brand the way you envision it. They may be able to expand your vision and take you to another level. Of course managers, agents and coaches do not always come for free, but there are affordable ones. You need to get out there, find someone you like, and see if they would like to coach you.

Blogging Tip #3: Posting pictures on your blog- One suggestion is to either Google "public domain pictures of ______" and insert whatever you are looking for in the blank. Another suggestion is if you find a picture on another site, make sure you reference the site and author in your blog and you should be covered. You can also become a member of picture sites like and These sites offer public domain pictures in any category you can think of. Some pictures need to be paid for but offers a lot of free pictures.

Blogging Tip #4: Which blogging platform would you get the most visibility with? Visibility meaning...FAMOUS! Which platform will get you noticed on a Google search, etc?  There are several options for you to create a free blog, but I know of an option that might as well be free, that offers visibility and puts you on track to become famous online! You can find out more information here => OR you can join me here (for close to free) and start working with me here => on your journey to Be Famous Online Too!

These tips are just a FEW of what you should know about blogging. There is so much information. What other questions do you have about blogging?

Let Your Light Shine

With the advent of the London 2012 Olympics and the illuminating flame-lighting ceremony on Friday July 27,  2012, I thought this title would be fitting. Today one of my fellow industry divas,  Nicole S. Cooper Facebook-ed,"I believe that we all have greatness on the inside of us, but I don't believe in allowing excuses to be the deterrent for why we never allowed our lights to shine!"

She wrote this in response to a client who thanked her for pushing them to move forward in their business. Her response was so key. EVERYONE has the ability to accomplish their goals and essentially create a better quality of life for themselves. But lets face it, ultimately the only reason why you are not where you want to be is because of excuses (especially in business)... just isn't the right time, I don't have the time, not enough money to get started, don't know anything about the industry, I don't like or know how to sell, my teeth hurt today, blah blah blah. ALL excuses.

BUT just as Nicole said, stop allowing excuses to keep you from letting your light shine! Stop allowing excuses to keep you from fulfilling your dreams. Stop allowing excuses keep you from recognizing someone special in your life. Stop allowing excuses to rule your life! At some point you have to take control of your life and begin to fulfill the dreams and goals you have for yourself.

I lost a very dear friend last week, he was only 34 and it got me thinking. We NEVER know when our last day on earth will be. When the last time to speak to a loved one will be. When the last time to do something you've ALWAYS wanted to do will be. So you cannot continue to allow life to pass you by with all of these excuses. You have to find "your light" and start letting it shine. Start working towards the goals you have for yourself. Unfortunately, some of your goals may require more income. And there are so many opportunities available to give you the financial independence to achieve the things you want to. One of my favorite sayings is, "If you will DO for a season, what most won't, you'll be able to live the rest of your life the way most CAN'T. It's not a matter of whether you can or can't its a matter of whether you WILL or WONT." Find a business opportunity that  you are comfortable with, find someone you are comfortable working with and start accomplishing your goals. Start to Let your Light Shine!

bigstock-Its-Raining-Money-7156297-300x200.jpg?width=300Aren't you always hearing "I wish I could attract more money into my life?" I think I've said it myself a few times...I've heard it a lot of times. Especially with that mega millions lottery in the U.S. a few short months ago! And we all heard a few stories coming out of that one, didn't we?

I've checked around and couldn't find anyone who answered 'no' to this question. The reason is - like it or not - much of what determines how much enjoyment we get out of our business or even life depends on the amount of money we have. Sure there are people out there who will tell you they don't want to be rich and that money is the root of all evil blah, blah but these are really misguided beliefs about money that have developed over time. (By the way, the scripture actually says "the LOVE of money is the root...", but we won't get into semantics for this article. Check it out.)

But seriously, who wouldn't want to be able to afford the things they want and need? You already have the ability; you just have so much poverty thinking and baggage in the way, you can't make room for prosperity in your life.

Much of what I share about branding and putting automation systems in place has to do with money - either making more of it or saving it. If you are in business, you need money to keep the business going; otherwise, it's a H-O-B-B-Y, or something else.

It's important to put aside any negative limiting beliefs others have dumped on you about money (did you cringe just now because you read that word again? if so, that's a sign of those ill-gotten beliefs kicking in).

If you are one of the few who had parents with a positive money mindset, consider yourself blessed. But if you are in the majority of people who had parents who believed in hard work, education and the idea that anyone who made money easily was simply lucky, lazy or immoral, then keep reading because you need this.

Money is, of itself, not bad and the amount of it you have is in essence a result of a few key beliefs some people engage in very well. (Trust me, it's taken me quite awhile to get this. I wasn't the fastest cookie in the jar on this at first, especially when I was newer to business).

Let me share just a few brief principles here...
Develop A Wealth Mindset

If your head is full of the conviction that rich people are greedy or power-hungry or must have done something illegal in order to gather the riches that they have, then you don’t have a wealth mindset. And if you don’t have a wealth mindset, then no amount of hard work you do will make up for your lack of money. Just like the poor dad in Robert Kiyosaki's 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad, you will ALWAYS be struggling.

Here's something about rich people that you may not know. Rich people are people who have a strong conviction that there is nothing wrong with being rich and that they deserve it. Not only that, people with a true wealth mindset actually believe that money can be a source for good. It supports families and provides them with food, clothing and shelter. It launches successful businesses that in turn support and replenish communities.
Change Your Motivation

Money can help us get whatever we want. However, there are lots and lots of motivations for being wealthy, some of them good, some of them not so much.

There are people who believe the world is full of abundance and money is instrumental in that cycle of abundance. So it is natural that they think being wealthy is a worthwhile goal. They see it as being within their reach. And for these people, it generally is easier to achieve, because their belief system is in complete alignment and harmony with their sub-conscious mind, which always wants to push us towards well-being. Isn't that cool how God did that? ... creating us to be well? do well? It's our own choices and actions that often take us down a different path.

Something I learned studying NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) for a year with a master practitioner was "mind and body are part of the same system and affect each other", so what you have been programmed to believe shows up in the way you act and make choices. can change these beliefs. It's a choice you have to make though. Choose to live the way you are now, or prayerfully choose to change direction.

Unfortunately, having a positive mindset about wealth is not something adopted the majority of people. Most people go through life with a 'poverty mindset' and keep striving and striving to meet their immediate needs for fear that they will somehow not have enough.' So they do things like lowering their prices, sounding weak in their offers, giving away services they worked long & hard to invest in building.

Does this sound like anyone you know?

Well, to sum it up; if you desire wealth because you believe it's your ticket to achieving good things for yourself and for others, then it will be much easier for you to become wealthy. Your desire to free yourself from the slavery of having a day job, or working your business 24/7 so you can really live and spend more time with your family and be involved in your community is certainly a worthwhile goal. And you should remind yourself every day how worthwhile this goal is.

Sometimes a little structure and a plan can help...Saturday, 5/19/12 I'm holding a half-day virtual bootcamp called Reclaim My Money Power. If you are an entrepreneur sick of making weak offers, want step-by-step strategies to transform your mentality and you really want to design a wealth legacy for yourself and your family, come join me.
