A Product That Performs

Nobody can promote something they don’t believe in. Behind any successful marketing strategy is a product that performs, that not only meets but exceeds expectations.

How Our Bodies Work

Scientists are only now beginning to truly understand how our bodies metabolize the foods we eat. To understand why two people eating the same foods can have totally different results, has baffled people forever. Or why some people feel hungry all the time, and others don’t. But one thing is for sure, weight loss is much more than controlling calories and being physically active, it’s about understanding and controlling our Endocannabinoid System.

If you haven’t heard of it, don’t be surprised, many Doctors are just now becoming familiar with this new research.http://smarterfittness.com/obesity-in-america-new-researchOur Endocannabinoid System, simply put, is how different hormones affect certain neurotransmitters in the brain, that control not only our feelings of hunger, but the foods we crave and how we metabolize them.

Five Years Ago

Five years ago we have developed a neurological system, in a cup of coffee. To date we have done 90 million in sales and are in 91 countries.

It’s Coffee

Our SlimRoast Optimum Coffee has been formulated with natural appetite suppressants along with detox components, powered by our patented Nitric Oxide Antioxidant Booster. Not only will you get exciting results managing your weight, with one cup a day, but you will love the taste of this delicious dark roast coffee.

Keto Creamer

For those who like cream with their coffee, we’ve developed a sugar free Keto creamer, that will not only help you get to your goals faster but keep you healthy longer. This sugar free addition to your coffee, delivers healthy fats to your system that enhance Ketosis. You burn fat rather than sugar.

Unique Approach

This unique approach to weight loss not only opens closed neural pathways to enhance the metabolism of fats and sugars, it also reduces cravings and improves your overall sense of well being, and mental clarity.

Opportunities

Because this product is only sold direct, it offers our customers some unique earning opportunities, both single-level and multi-level, depending on your talents and desires. While this product will benefit everyone concerned about weight, not everyone will want to market it.

LIST BUILDING: More Important Then Ever

What’s Better, a Cold Lead or a Warm Referral

Everyone knows that a referral is much more valuable than a lead.
Referrals come from people you know, family, friends and business
acquaintances. This network of people is often called your List.

The Value of Lists

People are just now starting to realize the inherent value of their
personal List, of family, friends and acquaintances. If people had
known how valuable their Lists would become, they would have taken much
better care of nurturing and growing them, throughout their lifetime.

Everyone Has a List

If Boomers think back at all the people, friends, business
associates, mentors and mentees they have had over their lifetime, their
list would easily be in the 100s if not in the 1000s.

It Used To Be Hard To Maintain a List

It used to be that maintaining contact with that many people over many
years and many moves, was very laborious and time-consuming,
consequently many of us have allowed good friends and valuable business
contacts slip into obscurity. Many of us have loss contact with people,
we wish were in our lives today.

The Beauty of Technology

That is no longer the case. Today there are numerous e-mail list
building strategies. With technology, it’s now possible to create your
own auto responder, that not only can reach out and touch your List on
special anniversaries, birthdays, etc. but can be used to update contact
information in the event of a move, divorce or a change in e-mail or
phone number.

Maintaining Your List Is Important

As people realize the potential value in their personal Lists, this
maintenance not only makes sense, but may be one of the most financially
astute things you can do for yourself.

You Never Know When You’ll Want To Use Your List

As people live longer, the old Linear Life Plan is giving way to the new Cyclear Life Plan .http://smarterfittness.com/introductory-content-why-the-linear-life-plan-is-disappearing-last Because of the increase in longevity people are engaging in multiple careers throughout their lives. The chance that at sometime down the road you might want to extend an offer or a business opportunity to your list is very real.

Don’t Squander It

There is no doubt that someone will consider an offer or opportunity much more seriously if it’s coming from someone they have known for years and even decades. Too many Boomers are squandering this valuable resource. They go to their grave without ever utilizing it, to either help themselves or their children.

It’s Only An Offer

An offer or opportunity made to your List is never a hard sell but rather an invitation to take a look. It’s something you find of value and your list might also or know of someone who would. The value of a List can be huge, especially if it involves a Network Marketing endeavor, http://smarterfittness.com/why-diets-dont-work where you earn a percentage of everyone you bring in. A very comfortable residual income can be created, very quickly.

The Rule Of Three

Our society is becoming more interconnected, and “The Rule Of Three” is very real. We are all only three people away from a millionaire, somebody who could possibly change your life, and very easily banish the fear of financial insecurity from your life.

The Linear Life Plan: Age Discrimination in the Workplace

Why The Linear Life Plan Is Disappearing

Last Update: February 14, 2019

 

The Linear Life Plan

Until recently the charting of our
lives has been very neat and predictable. First you learned, then you
worked, then you died. There are a number of reasons we accepted the
Linear Life Plan.

Three Reasons

First it fulfilled the biological and social requirements of a short life span. Second it was tradition, you were expected to act your age. Third it was the law, we created Government regulations and Institutional rules that prescribed the ages at which we should go to school, begin and end our work careers and when we could retire and receive a pension.

Our Assumptions

And lastly it was our own assumptions. Who
hasn’t said at one time or another, ” It’s too late for me to try that”
or ” If I could only have another chance to do it over again” or “If
only I were younger, I would…..”

No Deviation

In many ways we would judge ourselves by how successful we were at following the Linear Plan. We convinced ourselves that any deviation from the Plan would leave us poor, childless and socially ostracized.

The Cyclic Life Plan

Today we are seeing a dissolution of the traditional Linear Life Plan and in
its place a much more flexible arrangement, known as the Cyclic Life
Plan, is emerging. Due mainly to the increase in life expectancy, we are
starting to realize that not only will we live pass 50 and 60 but still
be vigorous, active, and independent into our 80s and even 90s.

It’s About Longevity

Because of this longevity, we are beginning to find ourselves cycling in and
out of several careers throughout our lives, each interspersed with
periods of rest, recreation, retraining and personal reflection. We are also seeing blatant age discrimination in the workplace. While some of
us will hit our career stride for the first time, long after it was
considered time to retire.Many of us will become discouraged, disheartened and made to feel like losers, because of the workplace attitudes, towards anybody over the age of fifty.

Rethink Retirement

Increasing life expectancy and better health are altering the very definitions of
“old age” and “retirement”. The increasing length of non-income earning
retirement can cause severe financial hardships. We are seeing more and
more older people, not only having to work in some fashion, but many who
prefer to work. They are shocked when they find, that not only are there no opportunities for them, but they are actually discriminated against.

Retirement can be a Problem

Growing numbers of people have begun to question,
not only when to retire, but whether retirement as it now exists even
makes sense. Many see retirement as an uncertainty or even a problem.
Something that will separate them form the kinds of productive lives
they are capable of living, well into their 70s and 80s. But because of rampant age discrimination, many begin to doubt themselves and begin to believe that they are not capable.

Second and Third Chances

The dead hand of tradition, the weight of regulations and our own expectations
are given way. We no longer feel forced, to do exactly what the
generation before us did. In a longer life there are second and third
chances. We have the opportunity, to go back and do some things we
weren’t able to do, for whatever reason, earlier in life. It starts with challenging the status quo, and having our voices heard.

So why are so many people choosing to stop working in their later years, even with the risk of outliving their money?

  1. They still live in the Linear Plan.
  2. They are tired of doing what they were doing and see no worthwhile alternative.
  3. They assume that it’s too late to start a whole new career.
  4. There is age discrimination, which although illegal, still makes the barriers
    to re-entering the work force, extremely difficult to overcome.
  5. Work schedules today are usually all or nothing, or they expect you to work third shift.
  6. Can only find work that is 100% commission or requires you to wear an apron, vest or a paper hat.

Workplace Is Changing

Luckily as our postindustrial economy matures into a more technological one,
more and more jobs will be based on connecting with people, utilizing
knowledge, experience and judgment. Increasingly with each new wave of
professional obsolescence, millions of men and women at varying stages
of life will begin the sometimes frustrating often times exhilarating
process of beginning entirely new careers. Age discrimination in the workplace will only get worse, as long as we accept it. We can force our Legislators to act, we can re-focus A.A.R.P. and we can boycott offending Companies.

Internet Marketing Can Take You There

It’s projected that that by 2020, seven percent of the work force will go
to work without leaving home. If a self employed lifestyle appeals to
you, were you can adjust your hours and working conditions to more
easily meet your needs, then learning on-line skills will be necessary. There are Companies that offer e-learning, training and expertise.     http://smarterfittness.com/affliate-marketing-for-seniors . You just need to treat it like a career and not a hobby.

Why Diets Don’t Work

WHAT’S A DIET

Most of us think of Diet not as “the customary food and drink of a culture”, but in its more insidious form as “a temporary and highly restrictive program of eating in order to lose weight”.

Here are five reasons they don’t work.

  1. You regain the weight you lose. Studies have shown that 95% of people who lose weight by dieting will regain it in 1-5 years. Since dieting, by definition, is a temporary food plan, it won’t work in the long run. Moreover, the deprivation of restrictive Diets may lead to a Diet-overeat or Diet-binge cycle. While on a Diet, because your body thinks your starving, it automatically slows your metabolism, which is another reason its so hard to lose the weight.
  2. Fad Diets can be harmful. They may lack essential nutrients, for example. Moreover they teach you nothing about healthy eating. Thus, when you’ve reached your desired weight you simply boomerang back to the unhealthy eating patterns that caused your weight gain in the first place. This is the beginning of “yo-yo dieting, which not only prematurely ages you, but can bring on other health problems.
  3. Overly restrictive diets can take the pleasure out of eating.
  4. Dieting, along with frequent and compulsive weighing that accompanies it, can lead to eating disorders. Studies show that people who diet are 8 times more likely to develop an eating disorder, or physiological issue related to food.
  5. And most importantly, new research is starting to uncover that our ability to process calories and control our hunger is at the mercy of a chemical process known as the “Cannabinoid System”.http://smarterfittness.com/obesity-in-america-new-research 

    INSTEAD OF DIETS

Instead of going on a restrictive diet that limits the foods we eat, we need to have a better understanding about how the Cannabinoid System works in our bodies, and how by blocking certain neural receptors we can increase our body’s metabolism more effectively burn the calories we intake. It’s about making our bodies more effective in digesting the foods we eat and reduce the false mental cravings.

A WEIGHT LOSS COFFEE

Valentus has done just that, with its development of a SlimROAST Optimum Coffee. A neuralgic system of several independently performing nutrients, working together to deliver this “stack” to the right places in the brain and throughout the circulatory system through its nitric oxide production.

Not only will you manage your weight with SlimROAST Optimum Coffee, but you will love the taste. The coffee is even more effective if mixed with our Prevail KETO Creamer, which promotes natural ketogenesis.

  • Weight Management Coffee with a Neurological Purpose
  • Helps shut off Cravings from the brain and the stomach
  • A logical and easy solution to intelligent weight management

These are some of the reasons why Valentus has grown to over 90 million in sales in 91 countries, in just four years. Visit the link below to order yours today.

Obesity in America; New Research

LEADING CAUSE OF PREVENTABLE DISEASES

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 70% of the $3.5 trillion America spends on healthcare goes toward preventable diseases. And the leading cause of preventable diseases is obesity, which has been associated with increased risk for Type 2 diabetes and other chronic conditions, which in turn is the catalyst for everything that goes wrong. The CDC concludes that more than two-thirds of American adults, aged 20 and older, are simply too fat. Approximately one-third of Americans are a healthy weight, one-third are overweight, and one-third are obese.

PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND THE CAUSES OF OBESITY

The bottom line is that the big solution lies in getting people to understand why they are overweight and what causes obesity, it is not a matter of just over eating. One has to wonder if the root cause of the healthcare problem is just bad leadership. America seems to be simply agreeing to pay for healthcare for people who have made themselves sick.

HEALTHCARE IMPLICATIONS

If one-third of overweight Americans became fit, so that two-thirds were healthy, problem solved. Fixing obesity would nearly eradicate Type 2 diabetes. And fixing obesity would free up significantly more money than the current tax proposals would dredge out of American pockets. There is no single act of leadership that has bigger money implications than simply doubling the number of fit Americans.

Significantly reducing the percentage of obese Americans would save multiple times more taxpayer money than pulling all U.S. troops out of both Iraq and Afghanistan.

IT’S METABOLISM

Americans are confused and while experts tell us that obesity is a self-inflicted condition, new research is starting to uncover that out ability to restrict out calories and control out hunger is actually out of out control. That we are at the mercy of a chemical system that cunningly influences how much we eat.

THE CANNABINOID SYSTEM

The Cannabinoid System explains why some people have more problems with obesity than others. Cannabinoids are hormones made from Omega-6 fatty acids, primarily in the liver and kidney. Essentially Cannabinoids hinder the ability of insulin to push sugar into cells, so we don’t burn the sugar, we end up insulin resistant.

Cannabinoids do this by blocking a substance called Adiponectin, produced by fat cells, which normally allow muscle to use carbs and fats effectively. This explains why some people gain weight and others burn calories more readily. This also explains why some are often hungrier when they get fatter, since a brain that doesn’t have sugar pushed into it still senses hunger.

BASIS OF FOOD CRAVINGS

Experts are starting to realize that the biological basis for food cravings and binges is that out Cannabinoid System creates uncontrollable urges that drive people to foods with a bias for fats and sugars. Cannabinoids also stimulate the liver to make more fat, which causes out Triglyceride and LDL levels to become elevated, another risk factor for high blood pressure, Diabetes and Heart Disease and they stimulate the brain to increase food intake, which leads to abnormal obesity, which leads to insulin resistance and glucose intolerance.

Cannabinoids also stimulate out system to store fat in the Omentum, a fat storing organ around the stomach. The Omentum also soaks up excess steroids released during stress and these steroids actually help the Omentum fat cells to bulk up even more.

WHY WE FEEL HUNGRY

Cannabinoids have some influence over the different signals that out brain gets to eat. Some come from the stomach but most come from hormonal regulators in the brain, that influence how other hormones work and how fast we feel hungry.

WHY VALENTUS COFFEE WORKS.

Cannabinoid receptor-blocking drugs have decreased weight more than twice as much as restricting calories alone, meaning that they actually increase your metabolism plus these receptor-blocking substances decrease the morbidities from obesity twice as much as could be expected from weight loss alone.

IT’S A LOGICAL SOLUTION

Valentus Coffee is a logical solution to a weight management program. Formulated with natural appetite suppressants, feel good ingredients, detox components and powered by VASO6 Tm, a patented Nitric Oxide, and an Antioxidant booster for optimum circulation and oxygen delivery. Designed to crush your cravings and promote brain health.

Social Network Marketing: Now More Then Ever

TODAY THERE ARE THREE TYPES OF BUSINESS SYSTEMS

  1. Traditional Corporations; You Develop it yourself, some great examples are Sears, Toys R Us, K Mart, and JC Penney
  2. Franchises; Buy existing system, some great examples are McDonalds, KFC, Burger King, Sport Clips, Great Clips
  3. Network Marketing; Buy into existing business, some examples are Herbalife, Amway, Avon, Mary Kay

WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE

People acquire their beliefs from their experiences. If someone lives on a street where everyone works for a corporation, that person will believe that working for a corporation is the only option. If no one on that street does Network Marketing for a living, this person will probably believe that Network Marketing, can’t be a full-time income. No Experience No Belief.

YOU DO IT EVERY DAY

The biggest sale we have to make as Network Marketers is to convince prospects that they already do Network Marketing every day, they just don’t get paid for it. If everyone really believed this, how hard would it be to sign up prospects? It would be so easy. All you have to do is simply sell a prospect on changing their beliefs about Network Marketing. Once a prospect believes that they do Network Marketing every day, their next question is how do I collect from it? It’s all about changing the dis-empowering belief based on their experiences.

“The best way to predict the future, is to create it.” -Peter Drucker

MAKE YOUR LIFE BETTER

Zig Ziglar, once asked his audience: ” Can you do something to make your life worse in the next three weeks?” The audience said, ” yes of course.” This was easy for them to visualize and accept. Then Zig said: ” Can you do something to make your life better in the next three weeks?” Ah! now the audience had to accept that they could.

YOU ARE IN CONTROL

This means that we are in control of our lives, we are not victims of circumstance, and we should stop blaming others for our current situations. When given an opportunity to do something to make our lives better, why do so many of us procrastinate?

STOP PROCRASTINATING

We need to ask ourselves the following questions.

  1. If I pass on the opportunity, will anything change?
  2. Am I happy with the status quo?
  3. Will the status quo change by itself?
  4. Can I continue to accept the status quo?

If you answered no to the four questions above then you’ve decided, all that’s left is to accept the opportunity. Before accepting that next brain-dead job or start ruining your car driving for Uber. Click on the link below and see how you can do something to make your life better.

Lose Weight and Make Money Drinking Coffee

How would you feel if this happened to you?

Suppose I go to a coffee house and pay $2.65 for a coffee. You also go to the
same coffee house and pay $2.65 for a coffee but because you filled out a
simple form to join the frequent quest program, you got credits toward a
free coffee and I didn’t.

You and I did exactly the same thing,

But you got rewarded,and I didn’t. You continue to get credits on every coffee
you buy and eventually you get a free coffee.

What if

The coffeehouse told you that if you told your friends to join the frequent coffee
program, they would give you some extra credits, every time your friends
bought coffee.

Wow you would tell everyone you knew.

And get this, what if you got credits every time you bought a cup, and you got
credits every time your friends bought a cup, and if your friends
recommended the frequent guest program to their friends, you got more
credits, every time their friends bought coffee and so on.

This would be a frequent guest program on steroids.

Well I know of a program that works just like this, except in addition to free coffee they give you cash.

Using Jaaxy to Research Keywords

I recently wrote a blog on the The Placebo Effect. Even though most of the  articles in Google only dealt with how it worked with regards to medicines and diseases. To separate out this power of positive thinking and some other variables from a drug’s true medical benefits, companies seeking governmental approval of a new treatment often use placebo-controlled drug studies. If patients on the new drug fare significantly better than those taking placebo, the study helps support the conclusion that the medicine is effective.

Earn money with Jaaxy

 

But I was interested in how The Placebo Effect could also effect the changing long held beliefs we hold about ourselves, and with this line of inquiry the information was very sparse I was forced to go to other sources to come with enough supporting documentation to support my hypothesis.

But what I really want to talk about in this blog is how by using Jaaxy I was able to find keywords that were not only relevant but had a QSR that was rated as a great prospect when you relate it to how many other websites are using the same keywords.

The beautiful thing about Jaaxy is that it has a QSR function, or a Quotes Search Result that is a fancy term for how many other websites are trying to rank using the exact same term. I’ve attached this screen shot so you can see for yourself.

You can see that the Keyword search Placebo Effect Research has 128 searches a month, 22 hits if you are on the first page and only 99 competing sites using the same keywords.

 

What is Gravatar; Create Your Own Avatar

What’s an Avatar

In order to understand Gravatar you first need to know what an Avatar is. An Avatar is an image that represents you on-line. It’s a little picture that appears next to your name, when you interact with other websites.

What’s a Gravatar

A Gravatar is a Globally Recognized Avatar. Using Gravatar.com you create your profile and upload it along with the picture you select,and it automatically uploads to any Gravatar-enabled site, anytime you leave a comment.

It’ Free

Gravatar is a free service for site owners, Developers and users. It is automatically included in every WordPress.com account. If you want to be identified on the web, then you should use an Avatar from Gravatar.

It Looks Professional

A primary essence of building your personal brand, is to engage with topics and niches,in your industry. Using Gravatar puts a face to a name and eventually people, who see you repeatedly, will visit your site. Many feel that it looks professional and adds credibility, and that using Gravatar makes your comments stand out.

WordPress themes already come with Gravatar integration, if your theme doesn’t have it consider adding it as a plug in.

Primary Reasons to Use Gravatar

  1. You can link your social media profile links and boost their search engine credibility.
  2. You can add your personal website links to increase traffic, from your engagement activities.
  3. You can add multiple sets of images that you generally use on social media to enhance your image search optimization.
  4. Able to add logo to help build brand authority.

Potential Drawbacks

  1. Privacy, because you signed up in Gravatar your image will show up in all comments you make.
  2. Negative impact on site speed.

If your concerned about privacy you can still select a generic landscape or cartoon image. As far as the speed concern, while it’s true that Gravatar could potentially slow down your site, it would take 100s of comments to do so. Slow speed can negatively impact SEO, since Google ranking factors include site speed. If you suffer from too many comments to your posts, a plug in you can implement is WP User Avatar.

These drawbacks may not be a huge concern, but you never know when a post will attract an unusual number of comments.

I’m interested in hearing any comments pro or con dealing with Gravatar and the use of an Avatar in general. And as always, thanks for visiting. Dave
