When waiting in line at the supermarket checkout, have you ever ended up buying a beauty magazine that you saw by the checkout counters? If you have, you are definitely not alone. While a large number of individuals, possibly just like you, purchase beauty magazines on occasion or as an impulse buy, many others have to have copies of all beauty magazines and on a monthly or even a weekly basis at that. While it is okay to have a collection of beauty magazines, you need to be careful about wasting your money.

When it comes to buying beauty magazines, there are many individuals, especially first time buyers, who wonder if beauty magazines are really worth the money. In all honesty, you will find that it depends. Beauty magazines come in a number of different formats and they are made and published by different individuals and companies. For that reason, no two beauty magazines are really the same. That is why you should examine each beauty magazine individually to determine whether or not it is worth your money.

One thing that you will want to examine is the contents of a beauty magazine. Beauty magazines, as previously stated, have different materials inside of them. If you are looking for something in particular, like how to keep your face clean and free of pimples, you may want to make sure that the magazine you are interested in buying covers that problem. If it does, the magazine in question may be worth your money, but if not, it may actually end up being a waste of your money.

What you also need to remember is that beauty magazines are not the only way that you can go about familiarizing yourself with the latest in beauty and fashion trends, as well as get tips on how to improve your appearance, beauty wise. You should also know that you can turn to the internet. Online, you may be able to find online beauty magazines, which are similar to the printed magazines sold in stores, but they come in online formats and many are offered free of charge. You may also find online websites that are designed to offer you free tips. There also online websites that have beauty message boardson them. These message boards are nice because you can not only get free beauty tips online or share tips that you know, but you can also make an online friend or two.

Yes, beauty magazines are not all that expensive. In most cases, you will find that beauty magazines cost around three or four dollars an issue. With that in mind, however, you need to remember that some people have a hard time with buying just one beauty magazine. Beauty magazines, over time, can get fairly costly; therefore, you will want to make sure that you examine each magazine that you want to buy before actually doing so. Even if you stop yourself from buying a beauty magazine even just five months out of the year, you may enjoy your extra savings.

In short, the decision as to whether or not you want to buy a beauty magazine or a number of them is your decision to make. However, with that in mind, it is important to remember that you don’t need to buy a beauty magazine to get beauty tips and information on the latest trends. If you do decide to buy beauty magazines though, you will at least want to take a few minutes to skim through them. This will give the opportunity to see if the magazine or magazines in question are really worth your money.

How to Write an Effective Press Release

A press release (aka a media release) is a public relations announcement sent out to the media and other targeted publications to let the public know what's going on with you and your business. It's a way to get coverage in newspapers, magazines, websites and blogs.


Before sending off your next press release, here's what you should know to make it effective:


Have a good reason to write and send one. A few reasons to send a press release: You're starting a new business, celebrating a business anniversary, launching a new product, you've received an award, or you're hosting an event.


Watch the length. If you're sending a hard copy of your press release, it should be no longer than two pages. If you're sending it electronically, it should be between 300-500 words.


Include contact information. This includes your (or the contact person's) name, phone number, email address and fax number. You want to be sure the person reading can easily figure out who she can contact for more information. If she can't get in touch with someone, your information may lose its appeal, and you may lose the chance of being published. Be sure to include the date as well.


Use AP (Associated Press) Style. This is what journalists use; and by using this style, the editor won't have to change anything, which makes his/her job easier (and that's always good).


Create an attention-grabbing headline. Although an editor/publisher will likely rewrite it, your press release should have a good headline for two reasons: 1) It helps ensure the press release gets to the right person; and 2) It helps determine the content of the press release.

From Funny to Insightful

Today as I watched Loony Tunes (yes from time-to-time I like to watch the cartoons I grew up watching) I was amazed at the subject. One of the cartoons that aired exactly discussed investing money!


In Heir Conditioned, Sylvester had inherited a large sum of money. His first thought was to spend the money on "stuff" (everything he WANTED in life).


Elmer Fudd, his financial advisor, kept telling Sylvester, "you don't want to spend your money on things you don't need, you must invest it." Elmer even brought some salespeople to the house, to pitch their products and services, so Sylvester would not have to go look for investment opportunities on his own.


Friz Freleng wrote Heir Conditioned and two more cartoons, "to educate viewers about consumerism and businesses. That was in 1954! Today we see history repeat itself. Haven't you gotten your tax or financial aid/loan refunds (or any other source that may bring you additional income) you go out and spend money on a lot of "stuff?" If you are like most people you do not look at investing in start up businesses or any other business for that matter.


As I write this blog, I wonder how different my life would be if I would have invested in any one of my favorite places I like to purchase "stuff" from. It amazes me how my life would have really been if I had invested in FB, Twitter and other companies that started up in the last 5 years.


This year when I got my tax refund, I invested my money in two companies. One caters to the health and wellness industry and one caters to making what you have, more efficient for you. I'm glad this year, instead of spending my refund on "stuff", I did what Elmer Fudd was advising Sylvester to do and that was INVEST! I did not have anywhere near the 3 million dollars Sylvester inherited, but I know the money and the time I'm investing in both companies today will leave me and my children with a brighter tomorrow.


This is my insight for you and get back to me and let me know some of the ways that went from funny to insightful for you.

We’ve all done it; we come across an intriguing article or blog post with a killer headline that really grabs our attention and we find ourselves compelled to read it. After we do, we discover how much we enjoyed it and now, are inclined to learn more about the author. So what do we do? We Google them.

We eagerly search their name to receive results in hopes of uncovering additional and equally valuable content. Low and behold…we do! We are excited to have just discovered a wealth of information all created by the same individual. In our mind now, Google has instantly provided this author with immediate credibility in his or her chosen area of expertise.

Now, we begin to dig deeper and read more from our newly found author. We can now locate them on Facebook, see the size of their Twitter following, watch the videos they have uploaded to YouTube, subscribe to their blog and of course…Get Connected!

Within a short amount of time and a quick search in Google, you are able to learn who this once unknown individual is, what they are all about and what exactly it is they do. You can see what comments are posted about them, check out their business and find out what others are saying about them…all because you typed their name in Google.

Do you realize this is the way your potential customers and partners are checking up on you? When someone types your name in Google, what will they find? How are you perceived to others online, in your network circle and in the groups or forums you belong to?

Like it or not, wrong or right, people are judging you by your presence and visibility online. Think about it, would you do business with a company specializing in marketing and yet you can’t find them in Google? How about a branding specialist who can’t even brand their own business because they are not “found” on Facebook or Twitter?

Check out my video and see how Google is helping me, build my business visibility and credibility online:

So, today I'm going to briefly discuss the difference between business and sizzle cards. First, what are business cards? Usually business cards are bits of information with your name, business information, phone numbers to reach you and email address. EVERYONE should have a business card. Even if you don't necessarily own a business. It's just an easier, classier, neater way to pass on your information when you meet someone.SIZZLE cards ( also known as drop cards) although sometimes the same size as business cards, have an advertisement as opposed to just your information. They are often masked as $5, $10, $20, or $100 dollar bills. For example: As you're walking down the street, you see a $100 bill and pick it up. You think you’ve hit the jackpot but instead it’s a card that reads: Tired of Living Paycheck to Paycheck? Earn $2000-$3000 Part Time! Call now for more information. 555-555-5555See? There’s a hot, SIZZLING message that allows your prospects to make the choice to call and create their own jackpot, or not. Now of course the point is to pass out or drop as many of these cards as you can because the odds of someone getting in touch with you then are much better then giving 5 o 10 out a day. Do your research. There are plenty of great Sizzle Card companies, that have good messages and quality cards to offer. So, today I’m going to create my own electronic SIZZLE card. These are great to post on different sites as well. Here's my ELECTRONiC sizzle card:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------WOULD AN EXTRA $600 A MONTH HELP YOU OUT?Tired of being short a few dollars every month? Want to replace your existing income quickly? We can help.Check us out and see how it literally pays to have out how my partner made $600 in 4 months would your sizzle card say?

With just a few days left until the end of the month, as well as April being Financial Literacy month.   I thought it was very ironic to hear a recent radio advertisement announcing that certain individuals should take part in a great program being given by creditors; it’s called “The Credit Amnesty Program”.  This advertisement was encouraging people who have credit scores as low as 480, to come and apply for INSTANT CREDIT no one is turned down.  Lie!!!!!, this is the biggest gimmick and it’s been around for years it just has a new name, but the financial shackles are the same for individual with bad credit.  Why because the people who buy into these tactics are given interest rates as high as 18% or higher, the debt these individuals accumulate is designed for them not to pay if off which in turn many of these people will default on their debt.  I recently did a webinar regarding “What impacts Your Credit” during this webinar I showed the cost comparison of a credit worthy consumer and an unworthy credit consumer.  Take a look:

Examples of Credit Profiles

Here is an example of the cost of a $20,000 car loan over 5 years:

Prime 680 or higher score - Interest rate 7%, Payment $405, Total Cost after 5 years $24,300

Sub prime 500 - 619 Interest rate 14%, Payment $477, Total Cost after 5 years $28,620

Jilted 500 or below – Interest rate 21%, Payment $557, Total Cost after 5 years $33,420

As you can see in this example there no advantages of being an unworthy credit consumer, you may be able to buy material purchases but the consumer with bad credit pays a big price at the end.  Don’t buy into the hype, educate yourself.

Mad about Mimi!

Thanks to Lashanda Henry I am back on my grind for my business.  A few weeks ago I purchased the 40+ audio series from her and it is so worth the money.  Instead of overwhelming myself  with the wealth of info that she gives I decided to marinate on one concept at a time and then move on to the next when I feel comfortable; which has been working for me.  Anywho, I just graduated from learning about email advertising.  After checking out all of the companies that she suggested I decided to go with Mad Mimi because they looked to be very user friendly.  To my surprise I got that and then some for $8 per month.   The other day I sent out my first email with Mad Mimi and the service is super easy to use, the templates look good and I get to track my email effort by a built analytics program, which shows me how many people opened my email, how many people forwarded my email, how many people unsubscribed to my email and how many people have  yet to open my email.  I am thankful to Lashanda for bringing this to my attention and I an thankful for Mad Mimi for making this aspect of my advertising easy and inexpensive.  I highly recommend this service.

Business Productivity Tools - FREE

To the cloud! Sounds like the Microsoft commercial right? Umm, excuse me Microsoft.... what cloud are you speaking of?

Cloud computing is the new form of "shared" working options. For small businesses, this can be an in-expensive way for their business to operate and share information with staff and end-users. Just like the different types of actual clouds, you have options when it comes to the virtual cloud that you select for your business. 


Microsoft offers the following services to its users:

  • Email
  • Document sharing
  • Instant Messaging
  • Calendar and Task tracking
  • Blogging services
  • Photo Sharing Services

Using Windows Live for your business can be a great way to share information and access your information on the go, however it does has its limitations. 


Google offers a great FREE option for small business owners that are looking for a way to cut the cost of in-office computing. MTS has fully integrated the majority of googles productivity tools into our business operations. With googlee we get the to use these great tools to share information and always be in contact whether in or out of the office:

  • gmail 
  • google docs (my personal favorite of all the apps)
  • google voice
  • google calendar
  • blogger
  • youtube
  • google checkout
  • google talk

I could keep going but the list is endless. The one key component that makes Google stand out from the rest is the fact that all of their services integrate with one another which allows for seamless integration of all their software into your business operations. Your gmail username and password will give you access to all of the great features that google has to offer and you can also link/connect with other google users. 


For us, at MTS, it is important to be able to share docs, have an virtual office calendar, task list and easy email. The best part for us is that we can access all of our information on the go and all of our Gooogle docs can be donwloaded into a MS format so transition from "The Cloud" to our actual pc is easy and painless. 


I know, it sounds like an advetisement for google, but it really is just a great resource for small business owners, that is free.

Are You At Risk Of Being Exposed?

This morning I was awakened way before my scheduled interruption. It was about 4 o'clock AM. After tossing and turning, I was unable to go back to sleep. So me being the person that I am filled with such "bright" ideas, I made the decision to go to the gym. A decision that I have not made in a very, very long time, but this morning I persuaded myself.


While at the Gym, I was to the treadmill, exposed to the elliptical machine, the ab machine, weights, etc.... Well you get the picture, right?


So my question to you today is; Are you at risk of being exposed?


For most of us it is a daunting task to allow ourselves to step outside of our comfort zones. We spend countless hours repeating our same habits and rituals and it doesn't even cross our minds to try something different. Last night after teaching my third class in a three part series, during my Q&A session, several of my students began to share things about themselves and their experiences.


Let me first tell you that my classes are always very diverse. I have all races as well as various types of industries that attend the sessions. During an attempt to better explain his point, one of my students, used the analogy of scuba diving. Immediately other students in my class began to cut in and let him know that they could not relate to what he was talking about. I myself, could not relate either because I have never been scuba diving. I have never been "exposed" to it.  My lack of exposure is based solely on my lack of interest in the sport and not in my lack of ways of exposure.  Sure, I have many friends that take part in the sport on a regular basis, but because it does not interest me....I do not participate.


For the things in life that truly interest me, I have made it a point and a goal to gain as much exposure to them as possible.  It may be by way of surfing the internet, reading books, taking classes, etc.  By any means necessary, I have decided that I will be exposed to the things that interest me most. Your source exposure depends heavily upon you and your actions.


Now for many, they have interests that they have not even begun to act upon even though a way of exposure is directly put into their paths.  It's easy to find an excuse or a way to remain in the same position rather than to step out of the comfort zone and change lanes.  It's time to release yourself of your fears and allow yourself to be exposed.


The time for change is now.  Change doesn't happen until you make the decision to change and exhort the energy needed to make it happen.  Stop using the same old habits to try and make a new ending.  It is not going to happen.  You must travel a new route on your path to a new ending. 


Here's a few tips; on your way home from work, try another route.  You may discover that it may get you there quicker.  If you are used to wearing a certain color palette, switch to one that you have been afraid to try.  You may discover that those colors accent you alot better than the ones you've been comfortable with in the past.  If you and your family don't all sit down to eat dinner at the same time, try to set a time and a place for everyone to sit down and eat together for a couple of days out of the week.  You may discover some things about each other that you did not know. If you don't go outside of a 10 mile radius of your home for your regular errands and leisure... try going at least past a 20 mile radius... you may find a new restaurant or store that you can now call your favorite.  I'm sure that you get my point.


Stop being afraid of being exposed to bigger and better things.  Step outside of your comfort zone.  Open yourself up to view the world in a different light.  They say that you don't miss anything that you never had...but I beg to differ.  It is definitely possible to miss out on the finer things in life because you are too afraid to branch out and take advantage of what this world has to offer. 


Open yourself up to being exposed....

"Helping You Brand the Best You"

When I first began my journey as a network marketer, I was exposed to many challenges. The most prevalent of those challenges was my own inability to conform from the mindset of an employee into the mindset of a CEO. Although I had the desires to run my own company and build a successful organization, there were still parts of me that were engrained with the employee mentality. 

I half-wittingly did some of the things that I was being taught by the top earners of the company, but I was arrogant enough to think that I could do a lot of it on my own and not follow the map being laid out for me. So, needless to say, I was initially unsuccessful in my business. After watching my up-lines continuously receive large checks, I quickly learned that systems are placed for a very specific reason. S.Y.S.T.E.M = (Save Your Self Time Energy and Money). It’s that simple! Once I was able to grab hold of that concept, there was no stopping me. 

For many people that I have spoken with about network marketing their initial thoughts are that it is a pyramid as to where only the people at the top actually make any money. I then explain to them that although it can be considered a pyramid in some aspect, everything is a pyramid to some degree. The corporate world is actually more of a pyramid than any other organization if you were to really break it down. 

I think that what most people don’t initially realize about network marketing is that once you become a network marketer, you are immediately at the top of that pyramid and have placed yourself in a position of leadership. You then build your organization down. So, it is in your best interest to build a downline of great leaders or at least people with leadership potential, because if you yourself are a great leader, you will definitely be able to train others to lead as well. So for those that are extremely successful in the business, they have built a downline of people who see the big picture and are willing to do what it takes to be a success themselves and those people do the same and so on and so on.

Do you see the big picture? It is possible for everyone to be a great success with good leadership and the ability to see the vision and carry it out. 

In order to be the CEO that you’ve dreamt about being, you must first let go of the employee inside you that is holding you back….
