IDLIFE TRANSFORMATION

The right Nutrition is the key to your body being in balance and performing as it should. For me personally, my joint pain was horrendous and I didn’t want to take medications that had worse side effects. My IDNutrition includes supplements for inflammation that have decreased the pain from a 10+++ to a 1 or 2. I had tried almost every over the counter products but nothing ever helped like this, the most I got was quick relief for maybe an hour then I was back to the same. See what your IDNutrition would look like.

Are you listening to God?

Are you listening to God? So many times we pray to God for answers.  And we keep praying. Then we pray some more.  “God why are you not answering my prayers?”  We pray some more…. Get frustrated, get angry, pray again… It is a cycle many of us are all to familiar with.  

This is my story and inspiration to you. My health has been poor for a while as many of you know. Being a diabetic and having Rheumatoid Arthritis has taken its toll on me, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I have struggled to maintain a normal life, maintain and continue to grow our business, take care of Ed and the house, and also talking care of others before taking care of myself. I have become exhausted to the point that my doctor told me I needed to take time off from everything to get myself healthy again.  My doctor has been good, however the answer to everything has been to add another medication to fix the problem.  Currently I am on 8 different meds, several vitamins my body is low on, and two different insulins. My weight is out of control and I struggle daily to do things most people take for granite, things like walking without pain, standing up without pain, bending over to pick something up without pain or dizziness, etc… my day is overwhelmingly a challenge.

I knew the doctor was right, however with everything going on I just couldn’t see how I could take time off from work, our company is just the two of us, my husband and I, and I do the sales and marketing for the company, a company that does marketing and advertising via Internet Radio and website ads, a company that has been around since 2000, helping small business owners promote their business affordably.  If I take time off, how can we survive, how can the company survive?  My business needed me, the organization I volunteer for needed me, my husband needed me and to take a sabbatical would mean letting everyone down.

The stress was building, and the finances were not supporting the needs of the company or the household. My husband was stressed out, you see, he is in Renal Failure and has been on dialysis for 6 years, there is only so much he can do. So I really needed to be healthy for all our sakes.  When I talked to him about what the doctor said, he said he looked up at me and saw my spirit dying in my eyes, that’s the moment he decided we needed to downsize the company and move into a smaller office, one that he could run by himself while I took the rest of the year off to get healthy again.

This was the last week in September, and that started the chain of events of us packing eight years worth of stuff collected at the office. The search for a smaller office that we could use to record in and finding help for the move.   And telling a good friend who had been using one of the offices that he needed to move his stuff out by the end of Sunday. A friend of ours had office space available and he said we could work out a deal.   Step one accomplished, a place to set up a recording studio. Now to put out a request for help to make the move.

We are almost packed up by the weekend of the second week when the bad news hits, this was Friday night. Due to issues the friend had with his investors, he said he was canceling our lease because he didn’t know if he was going to keep the complex. What are we going to do now? Finding a office space on short notice that we could afford to get into was impossible. Emotions were running high from the stress and sheer exhaustion, nerves were raw and patience thin.  We wanted to be out by the end of the weekend to cut back on what we would have to pay for rent, our financial situation was stretched to the max. I went to the office on Saturday, meeting the kids there to pack up and move what we could. My request for help, went unanswered, my son’s request went unanswered… no one we knew was willing to come out to help. I was so stressed at the burden I was putting on my son and daughter in law, taking away from their family time, just to help us clean out the office.  And Ed was hustling to get a storage unit to store stuff in so we could start moving.

That day was long and stressful as boxes and equipment were  loaded up and hauled to storage or to the house.   The kids worked hard that day without complaint. All my son said was “It’s all good mom, we got this”  We managed to acquire a trailer and a person who use to work for us stopped by to drop off his sales book and jumped in to help move without any hesitation. This was a true blessing, he had no idea we were moving, so once we explained, he said “What do you need me to do?” That is a prayer answered, someone to help my son lift the heavy stuff.   After several hours, multiple loads and a lot of blood, sweat and a few tears we called it a day, with plans to finish it on Sunday

Sunday morning is here all to early and we agreed to meet at the office after the kids got out of church and had lunch.  Ed was worried about me, and ask me to let the kids finish the move. I was exhausted and hurting in every inch of my body but determined to help with the rest of the move.  So I got dressed and headed down to the office around noon to get what was left separated in garage sale items and storage items.  The day had began

When I got to the office on Sunday our friend had gotten his stuff moved out and only our stuff was left in his room, so I started in his room moving the few items left in there that I could move. File cabinet, 2 plastic chair mats, chairs etc… putting them in our back room in the garage sale pile.  Next I went into Ed’s office and started moving stuff in there as well. An hour later I needed a break so I decided to go sit down at my desk up front. Exhaustion washed all over me and the tears started to fall.  It had been a long two weeks plus the thought of leaving an office that I had called my second home for 8 years was overwhelming. I shook my head trying to shake off the emotions. I didn’t want the kids to see me like this, a basket case crying and all emotional.  Something nagged at me to sit there and wait on the kids. Like a voice of reasoning trying to get through the muddle of exhaustion. But of course stubborn me didn’t listen.  Drying my eyes, I pushed myself up and forced myself to focus on what needed to be separated in the front office.  I was on my third trip to the back room carrying an end table and several bags of things to go to the garage sale when something happened that would change everything. I set the table down and walked around and set the bags down behind the file cabinet. When I turned to go back up front my foot landed on the plastic mats and caused the mats to shift. I can’t tell you how many times my knee, foot and leg popped or how many directions it was bent in. But I know I heard it pop at least 20 times before I hit the floor. Bare in mind that this all took place in a matter of seconds.  When I looked at my leg it was going in one direction and the foot was flopped over in the other direction.  My first thought was I’ve broken my leg,  The pain was intense and the tears were falling and I was so angry that God was allowing these bad things to happen. I beat my fist on the floor in my anger, like that was going to make a difference. Then I realized a few things:

  1. I was still by myself
  2. I didn’t have my phone
  3. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and already have issues getting up and down

The next thing that hit me was how close I came to hitting the file cabinet and end table. Then the realization that my son, daughter in law and grandkids were on the way and would totally freak out if they came in and saw me lying on the floor. I had to find a way to get up in one of the chairs, How I didn’t know, especially since it was across the room. I couldn’t bend the leg at all and all I could do was scoot myself with my hands inches at a time, fighting the pain and the nausea. 

What seemed like forever, was only minutes, the chairs were in front of me.  Now how to get in the chair was the next problem.  Shock was setting in and desperation to not be on the floor had me fighting to pull myself up. We had a Gazelle Glider sitting behind the chairs so I pushed the chair up against it for stability and started pulling myself up, I couldn’t do this pulling up again, I knew I didn’t have the strength, so I grabbed the Gazelle and pulled as hard as I could. Now I’m standing up but I can put absolutely no pressure on the leg, thank God the chair had rollers, I barely got it behind me before the good leg gave way to the stress I put on it.  I fell back into the chair, and cried as the pain washed over me. I had maybe five minutes to get control of the emotions, when my grand daughter came in saying “hi grandma”. Then she stopped and looked at me and ask if I was ok.  I said not really, grandma fell and hurt her leg, and ask if she would go get dad.  My son came flying in and I knew from the look on his face that he already knew it wasn’t good.  I never ask for help.  

As you can guess, the next steps were to call my hubby and go to the hospital.  Since I couldn’t get in our car due to it being to low to the ground, my son took me in his suburban and my hubby met us there. While I’m waiting, my son went back to the office and he and his wife proceeded to finish the move so we could close this chapter in our life. Now for why I told you this story.  God started talking to both myself and my husband at the first of the year, placing on our hearts the need to downsize.  We talked about it many times but neither of us were truly listening. My health was steadily going down hill and even though the doctor said it at every visit, I wasn’t listening to my body or my doctor. We lost several major clients, and still continued thinking that in this down trodden economy we could pull in more clients.  Still not listening. Then we finally did listen about the downsizing and started the process. However I still was making plans to attend my volunteering, going to a mixer, a conference, a wedding, and a concert. Plus I was looking into some new networking groups I had been invited to. Really sounds like I was slowing down doesn’t it?

This was all the things that were keeping me exhausted and I was still making plans.  Still not listening to what God was trying to tell me. The day of the fall my hubby tried to get me to stay home, my inner voice tried to get me to sit down and wait for the kids to get there, but yet again I still didn’t listen to the message God was trying to tell me. You see, God knew that I would never slow down on my own. I was dedicated to my business and wanted to keep it going. I would continue to look for ways to grow it, and I would continue to volunteer at the organization I was a part of, plus I would stretch myself to make all the commitments to the events and concert.  The only change I agreed to was to downsize to cut expenses.

Boom! God landed me on my butt with a very painful and very bruised leg that would keep me down on the couch and away from everything.  The only thing that would shut me down and give me reason to listen to what God was telling me. If I continued on this path I would have ended up having a heart attack or worse.

So my question to you is …Are you listening to God?  Or have you been floored due to not listening?  Don’t make the same mistake as I did, find a quiet place and ask God your questions and then be quiet and listen for the answer. Once you hear the answer, don’t ignore it. God won’t guide you unwisely. He does know what’s best for you and only wants to help you.

God Bless and I hope this helps you when it comes to listening to God!

Social Media Marketing

 

social media 1

The benefits of effective social media are tangible… consistent online exposure, increased website traffic, sharing of knowledge, better lead generation, improved search ranking, increased brand awareness, direct customer feedback and service, and engagement with customers.

Social media works by providing a platform (or several) where businesses can:

  • Reach an ever-expanding  network of followers
  • Build up a database of users who actually want information on their products and services
  • Drive traffic to their website
  • Increase the searchability of their website through use of keywords and other “get found” tactics
  • Engage with their current and prospective customers
  • Get feedback on products and services
  • Conduct research on customer needs and wants

Social media is not a one shot approach though, and it takes patience, persistence and passion.  Many people think social media means creating a new account and sharing couple of updates… Worse yet, they do the same thing on multiple social media channels and expect the same results.  Social media is not a field of dreams on auto-pilot. When people don’t get any traction, they give up quickly thinking that social media doesn’t work.

Consistency is the name of the game when it comes to social media. Time and frequency of posting updates is crucial. Keeping an eye on trends and alerts relevant to your business, and seeing what your customers are doing and saying matters. Interacting regularly and having conversations with your customers is necessary.

Social media marketing requires strategy, focus and execution. If a company wants to engage with thousands of small business service providers, owners and entrepreneurs, promote their products and services, and attract new customers.

Have a Blessed Day!

 

Christian Motivation Let God be in Control!

cross500Christian motivation is a whole different ball game than the world’s idea of doing what you want with drive and determination. Christians should desire to please the Lord and not themselves or others. 

 As Christians, you should not be crowd pleasers, working for self glory, fame, applause, or fortune. “Know your why” for building your home based business and let God’s Word motivate you and lift you higher.  

You want to be able to spend quality time with your family, have the ability to raise your kids in a Godly environment, have the finances to accomplish your goals and dreams, by owning your own business… and to create this you must also be willing to let God be in control.

Today you have the opportunity to take the world out of your business and put the Word in. (Take the “l” out of world) God is waiting for you to turn over the reins to Him and let Him be in control. 

i-throw-my-hands-up-in-the-air-som

When you allow God to take control of all aspects of your life, you open the door to multiple blessings in your life, your home, your business and your well being. God is waiting on you!!  So take the reins in your hands and throw them into the air and let God grab hold of them!

 

If you never give God a try, you will never know the blessings He can bring to you. So why not give it a try, let God be in control and then sit back and see what kind of results you get.  The Word of God promises to take care of you. You need to have faith, trust in God and the willingness to listen to what God says. 

1 Chronicles 29:12 Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all.

Have a Blessed Day!

 

 

Marketing Tips when Launching a New Campaign

Here are a few marketing tips to keep in mind when you’re considering launching a new campaign.

  • Most businesses will get 80% of their sales from 20% of their customers. Know exactly who those 20% are and aim your advertising to that segment.
  • Research is a vital part of your marketing plan. Your effort should produce answers to who your prospects are, and where, why, when, and how they are converted into active buyers.
  • As your business grows, prepare a strategic marketing plan looking at how your product or service will meet the long-term needs of your customers.

Many get confused when it comes to launching a campaign because they don’t do the research before getting started. If you don’t have all the facts you are setting yourself up for failure or best yet, loss of $$$.

Don’t jump into the middle and expect everything to be perfect. Start at the beginning and know that you have strategically accomplished all the steps needed to be successful.

If you would like tips on Marketing, Branding and Advertising tune in daily Monday – Friday on Apostle Radio for Straight Shot Marketing at 1:45 PM CST for Q & A and tips for having success when growing your business.

It’s not about Religion

10986-its-not-about-religion

It doesn’t revolve around what religion is or is not!                                                             It is about what relationship you have with God!

How you run your business is not about having or not having religion in it. It is about carrying God in your heart and your relationship with him that puts God in your business.  If you carry God in your heart and you are striving to do business the way you know it should be done, you will prosper!

So many people are afraid to let God in when it comes to business because they are afraid that it will somehow deminish the amount of business they receive.

If you truly believe and know in your heart that God is blessing you, stand proud and shout to the world that you, your house and your business believe in God!  The possibilities are endless when it comes to the blessings God will bring to you when you go against the worldly ways and stand for what you believe in.

If a person doesn’t come to your business because you believe in God, no worry…God will bring you 10 who will!

Be blessed and stand proud and let the world know that you have the best products, the best customer service, the best deals and the best of the best when it comes to bosses.  God is the owner of my business and I work for Him. How about you?

Blessings!

How many times have you felt like this?

end_of_ropeHow many times have you felt like this when you are at work and dealing with people who keep yanking on the rope?

You know that you have to stay somewhat calm and keep your thoughts to yourself, but if one more person yanks you in a different direction …omg you are going to explode.  Because your at work you keep your mouth shut, of course you do, you don’t want to lose your job…right?

So what does that do for you when you get off work?  Are you the only one who wished you were someplace else? No! We all have days where we wish we were someplace else or that the world would disappear. It makes for a tense workplace that normally follows you home.  At home the spouse and the kids are usually the ones that you vomit your whole days pent up anger on. The ones you love who really don’t deserve your wrath, however they are suppose to understand when you have a bad day. You don’t mean anything by it and you can’t understand why they get upset.

Instead of letting the day, the month get to you, you need to find your voice and let those people know in the most respected and polite way possible, to back off.  It is not an easy task and you do the best you can, however when things begin to pile up, your get angry and it sends you into a sideways behavior.  Anger is just a surface reaction to a deeper fear.  (Please stop telling me BS, you know I’m right or you would be upset reading this) What fear are those people poking when they keep asking and coming in distrubing you while you try to get things done. Is it the fear of not good enough, or the fear of helplessness, or maybe the fear of failure because you can’t finish what everyone is throwing at you.

What can I do to not let this happen you ask? Well I’m glad you asked.

STOP and visual a PAUSE button when you feel the anger coming on. Take a deep breath and let it out slowly, this will change the pattern of what you normally do.  Practice it over and over until you disfuse the anger when everything is coming at you. Then, in a respectful way let the individuals know that you will have what they need in (specify time frame) and you will get it to them then. Also tell them that everytime they interrupt it takes time away from that time frame you gave them and once you have accomplished, then you need to prioritize the job duties and work from the top down. Next by looking at the time frame you will be able to let them know that they are (# ?) on the list and that you will begin their request at that time. This accomplished, you will find that your life is a little more at peace, your home life is a safehaven and your stress level is much lower than before.

A Pause Button is like the Easy Button you’ve seen on TV. It can simplify your life if you choose to use it as a tool for controlling the anger that crops up.

Let me know if you try it and the results. It may not work the first few times, however if you continue using it you will be amazed at the results.

Blessings
