Enjoy What You Do Online!

Enjoy what you do online! If you are involved in an online business opportunity or even if you have blog which you post to, the number one thing you must do is enjoy what you do online.  Think about the reason why you decided to get involved in your online activity.  Hopefully you pursued that opportunity because you were attracted to it.  Now, if you were attracted to it, you obviously figured it was something you want to do or would enjoy doing.  I have been re-evaluating my online activities just recently, and I realized I needed an attitude shift.  Check out my video as I explain myself further.

 

Enjoy What You Do Online!

I originally became involved with the Empower Network because I was looking for a form of employment.  I was checking out area jobs on Craigslist and was directed to the Empower Network opportunity in a round about way.  I personally have a problem when my leads I have within my opportunity take for ever to respond to the opportunity.  I was sold the first time I was introduced to the Empower Network!  Those who feel they aren’t quite sure if its the thing for them, are better looking elsewhere because they do not have what it takes to succeed in any online business as far as I am concerned.   They are the type of team members that will only bring you down.  They will never be satisfied with their results, because they are not going to be coming into the opportunity with the correct mindset to succeed.  You need to enjoy what you do online if you are going to realize success.

 

Enjoy What You Do Online!

Enjoy what you do online and embrace your opportunity.  We all know the feeling of going to a job we loath everyday.   It takes twice the amount of effort and energy to go to a job like this.   Some of people have chosen an online opportunity for this very reason.  If you are in an online business, and it has become a burden, then I would suggest you change your mindset and enjoy what you do online once again.  Writing a post for your blog should not be a burden, you should be excited about sharing a great story or some great motivational content with your readers.   If you do not enjoy what you do online, it will show through your work.  If that is the case, you will never excite anyone to join you in your opportunity.  They will see right through you and choose not to follow you.

 

Enjoy What You Do Online

 

 

Enjoy What You Do Online!

Enjoy what you do online and do it with passion.   If you have lost your way and can’t seem to get into it, take a step away and ask yourself your “why” for doing what you do!  So often we are focused to look at goals in only monetary measures.  This can actually get in the way for some in their online business.  There are times we can get so caught up in monthly monetary goals, that we loose sight of why we are doing what we do.  If you enjoy what you do online, the monetary goals will be the result of your satisfaction with your current “why”.

 

Enjoy What You Do Online!

Doesn’t this sound exciting to truly enjoy what you do online everyday.  I have found an opportunity that has allowed me to do just that.  I have this great blogging platform with the Empower Network that allows me to express myself, whatever I may be feeling.  By being genuine and opening up to those who read my posts, I am sharing myself with those who take the time to check out what I have to say.  Since I enjoy what I am doing online, I can easily connect with people when they ask me about my experiences online.  I basically tell it like it is, because I do that everyday when I write my post.  This opportunity has also allowed me to decide how things are going to be.  I make all the decisions.  When you are in this type of position, how can you not enjoy what you do online?

Anita basically says what we are all thinking, but won’t say out loud.   Here is a quote from Anita:

I’d rather people laugh because they relate to something I say than because I wrote a clever punchline. All my stuff is about my life – it’s real and it connects people — and that’s a wonderful thing.

Rat Meat Passed Off As Mutton In China

Rat Meat Passed Off As Mutton In China! Really!  Makes me want to buy only American even more.  How long is it going to take before the world community starts pushing back when things like keep coming out of China.  Remember a few years back when so many toys were recalled because of the lead found in the paint on them, and this continues to be a problem with items from China.  Here is a story as published in the New York Times giving the details of this disgrace.

 

 

Rat Meat Passed Off As Mutton In China

 

Rat Meat Sold as Lamb Highlights Fear in China

By CHRIS BUCKLEY Published: May 3, 2013

HONG KONG — Even for China’s scandal-numbed diners, inured to endless outrages about food hazards, news that the lamb simmering in the pot may actually be rat tested new depths of disgust.

In an announcement intended to show that the government is serious about improving food safety, the Ministry of Public Security said on Thursday that the police had caught a gang of traders in eastern China who bought rat, fox and mink flesh and sold it as mutton. But that and other cases of meat smuggling, faking and adulteration featured in Chinese newspapers and Web sites on Friday were unlikely to instill confidence in consumers already queasy over many reports about meat, fruit and vegetables laden with disease, toxins, banned dyes and preservatives.

Sixty-three people were arrested and accused of “buying fox, mink and rat and other meat products that had not undergone inspection,” which they doused in gelatin, red pigment and nitrates, and sold as mutton in Shanghai and adjacent Jiangsu Province for about $1.6 million, according to the ministry’s statement. The report, posted on the Internet, did not explain how exactly the traders acquired the rats and other creatures.

“How many rats does it take to put together a sheep?” said one typically baffled and angry user of Sina Weibo, China’s Twitter-like microblog service that often acts as a forum for public venting. “Is it cheaper to raise rats than sheep?”

Residents of Shanghai recently endured the sight of thousands of dead hogs floating down a nearby river, apparently the dumped victims of disease in piggeries upstream.

The arrests were part of a nationwide operation since late January to “attack food safety crimes and defend the safety of the dining table,” the ministry said. The police arrested 904 people suspected of selling fake, diseased, toxic or adulterated meat, and broke up 1,721 illicit factories, workshops and shops. Yet the ministry acknowledged that diners still had reason to worry.

In food safety campaigns in past years, “some serious problems have been dealt with swiftly and vigorously, but for a variety of reasons, food safety crimes remain serious, and are displaying new circumstances and features,” an unnamed senior official said in the statement.

“For example, there is selling of meat injected with water and meat from animals dead from disease, as well as passing off relatively cheap types of meat as relatively expensive beef and mutton.”

China’s prime minister since March, Li Keqiang, has said that improving food safety is a priority — one of the main grievances of citizens that he has said his government will tackle.

But similar vows by his predecessor, Wen Jiabao, ran up against inadequate resources, buck-passing and muddle among rival agencies, and protectionism by local officials, Mao Shoulong, a professor of public policy at Renmin University in Beijing, said in an interview.

“The United States and Europe can’t eradicate these problems, either, but they are even more complicated in China,” said Professor Mao, who has studied food and pharmaceutical safety regulation.

“Chinese food production has become larger scale and more technological, but the problems emerging also involve using more sophisticated technology to beat regulators and cheat consumers,” he said. “The government’s efforts need to catch up with the scale and complexity of the problems.”

This time, at least, the government gave consumers a stomach-churning glimpse into problems in the meat industry.

The cases described included a company in Inner Mongolia, a northeast region of China, caught with 23 tons of fake beef jerky and unprocessed frozen meat adulterated with flavoring chemicals and swarming with bacteria. Six suspects in Guizhou Province, in southwest China, were caught with 8.8 tons of “toxic chicken feet” marinated in a hydrogen peroxide solution and adulterated with illegal additives. Chicken feet, steamed or boiled with spices, are a popular dish in parts of China.

The fraud sometimes had deadly results. In February, the police in Shaanxi Province in northwest China arrested a suspect accused of selling a lamb carcass so heavily laced with pesticide that one person died after eating the barbecued meat.

In another show of official efforts to stem public ire over menaces to food safety, China’s Supreme People’s Court, the country’s highest court, on Friday issued guidelines for sternly punishing related offenses, like taking “ditch” cooking oil that has been used and dumped in drains and processing it to be resold for cooking. Such problems “seriously affect social harmony and stability, and seriously harm the image of the party and government,” the court said in a statement issued by state-run media.

Public discontent about food safety has brought growing pressure on the Chinese Communist Party leadership, especially since 2008, when officials acknowledged that tens of thousands of children were at risk from kidney stones and other organ damage caused by milk powder adulterated with melamine, a chemical used to bamboozle protein tests. At least six infants died from illnesses attributed to the toxin, which sickened more than 300,000 children.

Many consumers have recently stopped buying chicken and duck out of worries about avian flu. Parents in many Chinese cities, including Beijing, have become increasingly alarmed by acrid pollution that doctors blame for increased respiratory illnesses.

“Food safety and environmental protection face the same problem that although regulatory capacity has expanded, there’s been no fundamental change for the better,” Professor Mao said. “The fact that the police have become involved shows how serious the problems still are.”

Rat Meat Passed Off As Mutton In China

Rat Meat Passed Off As Mutton In China When is enough ENOUGH!  This type of news is known in the United States and countries that have an somewhat open media, but what about all the third world nations where China is probably allowing these corrupt business owners to pass off their deadly goods to unsuspecting people.  This does not say a whole for how low humanity has become.  Our world is so full of corruption and no regard for other humans.  We are in a sad state of affairs when things like this continue to go unchecked by the United States government.  Our government is so far in debt to China that it has no backbone to stand up to China.  This is what you get when you fail to heed the warnings of just such consequences.

Rat Meat Passed Off As Mutton In China

Rat Meat Passed Off As Mutton In China.  So many of the items we now purchase in our stores in the United States are made in China.   I cannot find a good quality tool any longer, because so many of them are made in China and are of very poor quality.  There is no reason the United States allowed our industries to ship all of the manufacturing jobs over to China except for greed, and that greed includes the American consumer wanting everything at cheap prices.   If you purchased your cheap items that were made in China at the same store that great deal on your last barbeque meat was purchased, I would think twice about how great it tasted, especially if the meat was not grown and processed in the United States!

Easy To Grow Items For Your Garden

Easy to grow items for your garden  Once you have your garden site prepared, you will need to decide which vegetables and fruits you would like to grow in your garden.  I would suggest you begin growing items that your family will enjoy.  There are also some easy to grow items for your garden that you may like to include because you will be encouraged by your success and be amazed just how easy it can be grow some of your family’s favorites right in your own backyard!

 

Easy To Grow Items For Your Garden

Easy to grow items for your garden that you can plant directly in your garden by seed are a great start.  There are some seeds that can be planted as soon as you can work the soil without out it clumping up when you grab a handful.  If it does stay in a clump, the ground is too wet.   Wait until the soil does not form a clump before planting your first seeds.  I will not get into the planting depths and seed spacing here in my post.  All this information can be found on the seed packet.  I just want to mention, I am writing my post from the perspective of a Wisconsin gardener, we do have a shorter growing season than many areas of the United States, but our usually plentiful rainfall, warm summer days and abundant sunshine give us an ideal climate for most garden produce.

 

Easy To Grow Items For Your Garden

Easy to grow items for your garden I would suggest for starters include radishes, carrots, spinach, beets and leaf lettuce.  A simple tip I would like to suggest is to plant your radish seed  with your carrot and beet seed.  The reasoning behind this method is the slower growing carrot and beet seed can be marked by the quick germinating and growing radish seed.  Radishes also are ready to harvest much quicker than the other two and it makes a nice way to thin the carrot and beet plants out by having the radishes pulled earlier.  Spinach and leaf lettuce make a nice addition for your table for salads.  You can also grow onions, which I would suggest purchasing onion sets or plants at your local garden center.

 Easy To Grow Items For Your Garden

Easy to grow items for your garden that you will want to plant a little later  would include green beans, cucumbers, melons, pumpkins and squash.  Green beans will be grown in rows.  I usually plant bush bean plants because it is easier to work with them.  You can plant pole beans which will require a support for the plant to climb.   The other four items are vine plants, and will require more room.  There are some hybrid varieties of most vine plants that are of the bush or compact variety.  They will take less space.  Your can let your cucumbers climb vertically also to save on space.  There are summer squash such as zucchini which are extremely easy to grow and winter squash like butternut and acorn to name a few.

Easy to grow items for your garden will also include items that you may want to start off with purchasing plants from a local greenhouse or big box store.  Although all these items may be started indoors by you, it is sometimes easier especially for the first time gardener to just purchase some of these plants.   You can purchase different types of tomato plants depending on how you plan to use them.  I usually plant one or two cherry tomato plants as they tend to be extremely productive and if you plant many more than a couple of plants, you will have way too many!   Plant determinate type tomato plants if possible as they take up less room in your garden.   They will work better for staking or for tomato cages.   I like to plant some early season plants for fresh eating along with some later season varieties.  I plant roma variety tomatoes for making salsa and sauces.

Easy To Grow Items For Your Garden

Other easy to grow items for your garden that you may want to purchase as plants would include peppers.  I like to plant several varieties of peppers including sweet green, red, orange and yellow bell peppers.  Although I like jalapeno peppers, I also have found a mild version of the jalapeno pepper called “fooled you jalapeno” which has the same great taste of a jalapeno without the heat for those not liking the heat of a jalapeno pepper.  Peppers are great right off the plant, but any peppers hanging on the plant right before we get our first frost are picked and then cut up and placed on a cookie sheet and frozen.  I then put them in freezer bags and use them until we have fresh ones once again.  They actually freeze quite well.

Some other easy to grow items for your garden will include potatoes.  You can purchase seed potatoes from a local garden center.  You will probably have to cut the potatoes into pieces which contain an “eye” and let them harden off for a few days.  You then plant them about 6 inches deep.   When the plant emerges from the ground, you will want to hill dirt up around the plant and continue to do this for several weeks.  You do not want to have the newly growing potatoes (by this I mean actual potatoes and not the plant itself!) exposed to the sunlight as they will turn green and are not useful when green.  Once the plant dies, you can carefully dig the plant up and harvest your potatoes.  I will do a post soon on how to grow potatoes.  There are so many different ways to grow potatoes and I would like to share the different methods in a more extensive post.

Easy To Grow Items For Your Garden

Finally, other easy to grow items for your garden may include broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower.  I do start some of these items from seed myself, but purchasing started plants is much easier than starting your own.  These vegetables grow quite easily along with kohlrabi and eggplant if you enjoy these items.

 

If you have children, it is a good idea to at least try growing some of the items they may want to try growing.   It is a great educational experience for the whole family to get involved in a backyard garden.  It is amazing to watch how the plants produce the items we find in our grocery stores.  This information should get you started in your backyard garden.  In my next post I will look at growing some fruits in your backyard!  Happy Gardening!

Focusing My Online Business To Profit

Focusing my online business to profit is a major shift I have consciously made within the past 10 days.  In order for my online business to become a business that is going to create not only a profit, but the personal wealth I deserve I realized I need to focus my attention on the very thing that is creating results for my business.  My blogging platform is at the core of my business and my online presence.  By developing my blog writing skills, I have become more consistent with my posts by focusing my online business to profit. 

 

Focusing my online business to profit is much easier to do than one may think.  It is so easy to be pulled in one direction and then the other.  A case in point for me personally.  I was involved in a group within my online business, and I have to admit I began to feel I was on a roller coaster ride!  We, as a group were being lead to do this step because it was the golden nugget we needed to break the code and finally see the results we deserved.   Just when I felt I was getting a handle on this particular strategy, the group was pulled over to this new technique or method because we needed it to get to where we needed to be.   WHAT!  There finally became a point where I said to myself, just wait a minute, its time for me to get off this silly ride.

 

Focusing My Online Business To Profit

Focusing my online business to profit was only going to be accomplished when I decided it was time that I started FOCUSING on my BUSINESS.  I wasn’t in charge of my business, I was being a follower and not a leader.  That is the first mistake many people make when they start in an online business.   They may not feel confident or lack some of the needed “perceived” skills that are required to make it in an online business.  So what do they do, they begin to follow someone who appears to know all the answers.  Now, to be fair to the person I was looking to for guidance, I learned a lot of valuable things about my online business, but I wasn’t focusing my online business to profit.  I was actually allowing myself to get caught in a rut.  That was not the fault of this particular leader, it was my fault.  I was too busy following, that I wasn’t focusing my online business to profit.

 

Focusing My Online Business To Profit

I began focusing my online business to profit when I started using the blogging platform with Empower Network  EFFECTIVELY.  I was drawn to the Empower Network opportunity because of the blogging platform.  I became a part of a Facebook group that syndicated the blog posts of fellow members.  This was a definite turning point in the road for me in focusing my online business to profit.  I finally saw the powerful tool my blogging platform had become.  My blog posts were much more the real me being  expressed.  I was taking ownership of my blogging platform and introducing myself to the online market.

 

Focusing my online business to profit means I am going to be covering topics I enjoy and want to write about in my posts.  There are so many different theories out there even within the Empower Network about how you need to blog.  I have taken the best of all those theories and have developed my own guidelines for blogging.  If a topic is suggested by my Facebook blogging group, I will do my best to blog on that topic.  However, I am going to blog with the purpose of focusing my online business to profit, and not just a post to fulfill a suggestion.  I decided to get into Empower Network and the blogging platform as a way of expressing myself.  If I do not express me, then how do  I expect to get a following from people who want to see what I have to say.

 

Focusing My Online Business To Profit

Focusing my online business to profit is also made easier because of the continued growth of Empower Network.  It is actually a very young company online, and it just continues to grow.  Over 100,000 customers have invested their time in a blogging platform.  Because of this size, it has an Alexa ranking of 187 in the United States and 411 globally.  This ranking puts Empower Network as the 187th most popular site in the United States.  This popularity makes focusing my online business to profit much easier.  Through my Facebook blogging group and the use of Google Keyword Search, many of my blog posts will rank on the first page of Google.  Through my focus and will to become not only profitable and successful, but also wealthy, my online business continues to improve.  Each step that I now take is for myself because I want to be focusing my online business to profit.
