Be Sure to Do This When You Start Your Network Marketing Business

So you have joined a network marketing business. You are now in business. What is the one thing that will start you on the road to building a successful network marketing business? Your attitude! It is the single most important element that you must consider when starting out.

Lack of an appropriate attitude is the single most prevalent reason why people fail at network marketing. People just do not take their network marketing business serious. Too many people view it as a part time hobby. And that is the results they get, part time, if they do get any results.

As you begin your journey into the world of MLM, do not focus on the tons of money you'll make, because that is quite a ways down the road. What you want to focus on is foster your attitude to the point that you realize that you are now in business. You have to make it a focal point of your life if you want to build a successful business.

Why do you think there is such a high failure rate in the network marketing industry? Some will say it's because most of the people have no business background. Some will say it's because they have no computer skills or marketing skills.

The reason is simply because they do not take their business serious enough. If they took their business serious they would take the time to learn some business skills. They would learn how to use the computer. They would develop their marketing skills. If they were serious about their business they would take the time to learn these things.

Why do so many fail to have the right attitude to build a business? Because most people who get involved in the home based business industry by joining an MLM company are already working at a regular "job". They are working between eight to ten hours per day and just do not have the time to build a business.

Or so they think! You can build a very successful networking business on ten to fifteen hours per week. That's not too bad, considering the returns that await you after two to five years of building a business. If people would only have the right attitude they would be on the road to success.

If you think you only have a part time business then you will only get part time results. And too many people view network marketing as a part time business. That is why so many fail to build a full time business. If you have the wrong attitude you will achieve the wrong results.

As you begin building your network marketing business focus on creating the proper attitude. Make it a part of your your day so it ever becomes a part of you.

Cat Labor Signs – 7 Ways To Tell That Your Cat is About to Give Birth

So your cat has been pregnant for awhile now and been getting rounder and rounder. Suddenly, her whole demeanour changes and you’re standing there, wondering if this is really it — is your cat in labour?

Are her kittens coming?

How can you tell?

Just what are the signs of labour you should be looking out for?

Cat lovers the world over do their very best to make sure that their beloved pets receive the best care possible.

But when our feline friends become ill — or in this case, are due to give birth to kittens — we begin to feel very anxious and out of control as we realise that we simply don’t know enough about the situation.

After all, we can’t all be vets! You need to know what to look out for and you need to know fast.

Your cat is due to go into labour around the 64th day of her pregnancy, although it is very unlikely that you will be able to be that accurate in your calculations. Instead, you will have to rely on your ability to read the signs of the stages of pregnancy and of her impending labour.

Firstly, you are likely to have noticed that your cat’s appetite will have almost doubled in the past few weeks and you will be able to see her kittens moving around in her abdomen quite clearly.

Also, she will have been displaying nesting behaviour — looking for a safe, warm and quiet place in which to give birth. Hopefully, you will have already provided a suitable nesting box for her to use, otherwise you may find that she has chosen to give birth in the middle of your bed!

Then, as your cat nears the start of her labour, her appetite will reduce dramatically. It may even disappear completely.

A further sign of your cat’s labour is that she may become particularly clingy and want to be around you constantly, seeking your affection.

As she gets closer to the time that her labour begins in earnest, you may find that your cat starts pacing about, appearing nervous or particularly excitable.

Another very distinct sign that your cat is very close to going into labour is that she will begin to ‘call’ to you. Even if you have never been present when a cat is giving birth, you won’t be able to mistake this particular sound!

As the time approaches, you will see your cat repeatedly licking her bottom as she reacts to changing sensations in her body as it prepares for the birth of her kittens.

And finally, when your soon–to–be mother cat starts to feel the first twinges of her labour, she will appear to be uneasy and will repeatedly go in and out of her nesting box, ‘treading’ on the nesting material that you have already provided.

When you see this last behaviour, you can be quite sure that your lovely cat is entering the first stage of the birth process — your cat’s labour has begun.

In conclusion then, when you find yourself faced with a heavily pregnant cat and are wondering just when things will start to get moving, the foregoing, seven signs will give you a good guide to follow.

But do yourself a favour, the hard work doesn’t stop there — for you or your cat. Learn just what you need to know to help her through the actual birth process and how you can best care for your cute, newborn kittens by visiting the link in the box below.

Golf Shirt or Polo Shirt: What’s The Difference?

The golf shirts on the market today feature a roomier chest, bigger arm holes, longer sleeves just to the elbow and an extended shirt tail. The oversized features allow freedom of motion during the golf swing.

The climate cool material is made of 100% polyester that will keep you cool on those hot and humid days on the links. Due to the moisture wicking technology, this material actually removes the perspiration away from your skin to keep you dry. When your skin is dry you naturally feel cooler. The anti-bacterial finish helps eliminate body odor. If you tend to perspire a lot I would highly recommend this type of material. Stay away from the 100% cotton material for your golf shirts because when they get damp from perspiration or rain they tend to restrict your swing.

For more added comfort some manufacturers like Adidas and Izod heat screen their size labels into the neck for tag less comfort. Everyone has had a golf shirt that the size label has rubbed you the wrong way. Cutting it off doesn’t help, it actually makes it worse. Then you try taping it down, it works for awhile until the tape falls off and then you’re back to the same situation. With the new tag less label you never have this problem.

The new materials that the manufacturers are using now will keep their shape and comfort level up for many laundry washings. The UV rays from the sun won’t fade them as much as the 100% heavy cotton; these shirts tend to fade around the collar and the shoulder areas from just being out in the sun. This is especially true with the darker colors.

The original classic fit polo shirts features are somewhat smaller in the chest and sleeves. The sleeves extend halfway down on the bicep and the arm holes are smaller. These features may restrict your golf swing a bit if your intent is to wear it while playing golf. Stick to the golf shirt for the added comfort.

There are two other styles of polo shirts to choose from. The custom fit polo is smaller in the chest, has shorter sleeves and shorter shirt tail. The slim fit polo has the narrowest chest of the two and is not made to tuck in your pants. These two styles will wear well under a sport jacket but are not recommended to wear for a round of golf.

Both the golf shirts and the polo shirts are designed to keep you cool and comfortable on the links or at a back yard BBQ.

I have pointed out some of the differences in them, so now hopefully you have more information at your disposal to you make your next purchase.

Building Blocks of Wellness Programs

In recent years, corporations have come to the realization that workplace wellness programs are beneficial to both employees and management, and more importantly, to their bottom line when it comes to profits. The building blocks of wellness programs may vary from program to program and from company to company, but overall, many wellness programs share many of the same characteristics and certainly the same goal – to improve the health of your employees.

Health Screenings

On-site health screenings are either the most basic of the wellness program building blocks, laying the foundation or starting point when it comes to improving your employees' well-being. It is worth the time and effort to find a company that offers quick screening in 30 minutes or less, with a turnaround time of about four days to deliver results and ultrasound images. Many companies take up to 21 days to inform the employees of their findings, but most doctors agree this is not optimum. When it comes to health, time is very often of the essence.

Most importantly, health screening companies can identify many health-related issues before they become debilitating, or even deadly. With simple, painless tests administered by trained professionals, your employees can find out if they are at risk for heart attack, stroke, abdominal aneurysms, or osteoporosis. Their own doctors can utilize the findings to develop a strategy of medication, or surgery, or sometimes both, to correct or improve any potential problems.

Motivating Your Employees

Of course, your company's wellness program has little chance of succeeding without the enthusiastic involvement of your employees. Motivating them to find ways to better their health is a key issue. Health screenings can often assist in encouraging employees to do just this, especially if they get a wake-up call from their findings. If they find they have atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, they may be more likely to quit smoking, lower their cholesterol intake, or find ways to lower their blood pressure. If they find that they are at risk for osteoporosis, they may be more inclined to increase their weight-bearing exercise and add calcium to their diet each day. Motivation can also come from healthy competition, such as seeing who can improve their numbers by the next screening.

Making the Workplace Healthier

Another way to motivate workers is to make the workplace itself healthy. Add a small gym or walking track for employees to utilize during breaks, and change out the junk food in the vending machines to healthier options. Implement "fun fruit Fridays" where a variety of fresh fruit is handed to employees as they come for work in the morning. When given more healthy options, many employees will take advantage of them.

Your company may also consider offering stress counseling, nap suites, or in-house mini-massages on a regular basis to combat burn-out and short tempers, making for a mentally healthy workplace environment.

Corporate wellness programs offer a wealth of advantages, including lowering a company's health-care and overall costs, cutting down on the amount of needed sick days, increasing profits, and making for happier, healthier employees.

The Male Deer Exercise

The Taoist deer exercise was developed by observing the actions of deer in the wild. The ancient Taoist observed that the deer had a strong sex drive and they adapted the exercise for human use.

The deer exercise helps to connect the mind, body and spirit. In fact, the deer exercise is a mental, physical and spiritual exercise in one. By performing the deer exercise, you will come to realize that sex is a spiritual experience as well as mental and physical.

There are many benefits to the deer exercise. The exercise balances the body. The Taoist refer to seven glands, but they are similar to the seven charkas. The deer exercise draws energy through the seven glands to the pineal gland. This idea is similar to the concept of drawing energy up from the root to the crown charka.

When the energy hits the pineal gland, there is a tingling sensation though the entire body similar to the experience of orgasm. If there is a disruption in energy flow in any of the seven glands, the energy will not make it to the pineal gland until that energy imbalance is filled. Regular performance of the deer exercise will help bring energy to all the seven glands.

The deer exercise is also used in spiritual manifestation to allow for sexual transmutation. Sexual energy is saved and converted in to creative energy through sexual transmutation and the deer exercise.

The deer exercise also has the benefit of prolonging intercourse. If other artificial means of prolonging intercourse are used, damage to the prostate can occur over time. However; by practicing the deer exercise and training the prostate muscles, sexual encounters can last much longer.

Normal sexual intercourse ends when semen is expelled from the prostate. However; through use of the deer exercise and training the muscles, the male can experience multiple orgasms without ejaculation and without losing vital energy. Once the deer exercise is mastered, the male feels refreshed and energized after sex rather than tired and sleepy. Advanced users of the deer exercise can also practice the deer exercise as a means of birth control.

The deer exercise is best done in the nude. It can be done while sitting, standing or lying down. There are two parts.

Begin part one by building up the sexual energy. Rub your hands together vigorously until they feel warm. Then take one hand a cup your testicles. Do not squeeze, just feel the warmth.

Take the other hand and begin to make small circles on your lower abdomen between your navel and penis. You will likely make small knots in your hair, but it is worth it. Rub to feel heat generated. Keep your mind clearly focused on the movements and the feelings. Be gentle and do not try to force anything. Make 81 circles.

Now, rub your hands together again to get them warm. Switch hands and place the other hand on your balls and use the other to rub your belly. This time, make sure that the circles are in the opposite direction from the first set. Do another 81 circles. Keep your mind clearly focused on the motion and the sensations.

Now you are ready for the second part. Tighten the muscles of the anus as if you were trying to pull in air. Think of a deer wiggling its tail. Hold the contraction for as long as comfortable. Do not strain. Then, stop and relax.

Repeat the contraction. Again, focus on tightening the anus muscles as tight and as long as comfortable. Stop and relax again.

After a few repetitions, you will begin to feel a tingle going up your back. This feeling is the movement of energy up through the seven glands. If it stops at some point, you know there is weakness in that area that needs to be addressed. Eventually you will feel a tingle in the back of your neck and the tingle will expand through your body like that of an orgasm. This effect happens when the energy reaches the pineal gland.

You will likely not be able to hold the contraction for very long at a time at first. However; if you continue and practice the exercise twice a day, you will soon strengthen the muscles to the point where you can hold the contraction longer.

If you wish to test if the exercise is strengthening your prostate muscles, you can try this test: While urinating, try to stop the flow and then restart it. As your muscles grow stronger, you will find that you can easily control your stream of urine.

The second part of the exercise can be done anywhere and at any time. It can be used to give yourself a natural energy boost or simply for the pleasurable sensation. If preformed during sexual intercourse, you can achieve multiple orgasms without ejaculating. In this way, you can conserve your sexual energy and transmute it into creative energy.

Boost Your Business With Help From A Content Marketing Agency

Here we’ll be taking a look at some of the keys professional web design services use to unlock your content marketing strategies and make your business more accessible to your customer base.

It’s greater than the sum of its parts.

The first thing to remember is that content is not just made up of one individual part, but instead is comprised of everything from text and images to videos and even infographics. For content to be effective it needs to be part of a successful package rather than a standalone piece of writing or a single video.

A good content marketing agency will not only focus on the website text, but will also incorporate things such as relevant blog posts, creating a buzz on social media, set up email marketing, and anything else your site needs to reach its target audience. The ultimate goal is to turn them from mere visitors into paying customers that you rely on.

Give them what they need.

Getting to page one on Google means more than just making content available to the masses, it’s about giving them something of value that helps them achieve what they’ve come for.

Knowledgeable content marketers know that websites have a range of purposes, such as to sell a product or simply to inform, and the content displayed needs to be tailored specifically to your customer’s needs.

If a customer is not getting what they want from you, they’ll simply go elsewhere. They may want to buy your product or use your service, but if it’s not packaged appropriately then it’s going to be a major turn-off for them. Content marketing involves hitting the right tone across a number of platforms to boost interest and maintain it.

Content Marketing Services

The three biggest components of content on the website itself are text, image, and video. Images and video are actually quite easy to get right, but so many companies place uninteresting videos that do not hold the visitor’s attention and images which are low quality and serve no purpose. There are many affordable content marketing services that offer to complete every aspect of this so no digital stone is left unturned.

As soon as your website is opened by a visitor they immediately start to consume the information with their eyes and begin searching for what they need. If your content does not quickly address their requirements then you can guarantee they won’t stick around for long. Images need to be appropriately sized, and if videos are used you should keep them short with an interesting title.

Content Writing Services

Text is perhaps the most important aspect of your website for a content marketer to get right. It conveys information images and videos cannot, and although images provide visual stimulus, the text is directed to the reasoning part of the brain. Here you can delve into the conscious, and sometimes subconscious thought processes of the visitor and generate emotion with your words.

But what should your text say, and how can you make sure it is of a high standard? Although search engines and SEO are important, especially correct keyword analysis, your website shouldn’t be created with keywords as the main focus. Your content needs to be geared towards the visitor and giving them what they came for first and foremost. They will be constantly forming an opinion of your site depending on a multitude of aspects such as the layout, the style or whether you are bombarding them with ads. You need to build trust from the moment the website pops open on their computer or smartphone, and good content marketers do just that. If you have spelling errors or broken links that cause annoyance, then what does that say about the overall quality of your content marketing services? Will you be making mistakes with the order? Will you be annoying them with your shoddy service?

Remember that a companying offering content marketing services will always aim to make your website more valuable, more credible and more helpful to your customer than it currently is- it’s what they do best. Be an authority in your sector that people can trust and depend on, and you won’t go wrong.

A UNIQUE View to Leadership – How to Employ Leadership in Network Marketing

What is leadership and how do we recognize, or practice, good leadership?

Leaders come in different sizes and shapes. Some are formal and some are informal. Some become leaders because of their age, wisdom or experience. Common for all of them is that they practice a combination of different leadership styles.

Make your actions become habits. Your credibility as a leader depends much on your actions and your interactions with people around you.

Some people are said to be born leaders, but they can still fail. Even if you are not a born leader, you can learn how to become one and develop the full potential of your leadership abilities. You have to learn leadership theories, but you also have to practice the theories among other people. You need both formal and informal life-long learning to gain leadership attitudes.

Any leader belongs to a group. Each member of the group has responsibilities. It is not a one man show. If the group will function effectively, each member has to do their share and fulfill their given tasks. Individuals will give birth to the group and form it so they can become an effective team. Thrust, confidence and respect is built from actions and social interactions within the group.

Leaders employ a combination of leadership styles depending on the situation, the competency and the motivation of the group. There is no rule that only one style can be used. In situations such as war and emergency crises, decisions have to be taken. It can be a matter of life and death and there is no time to consult the group. In other situations, when the time is not an issue, things can be discussed in peace and order.

There is no difference in being an offline or an online leader. As a competent leader you need to lead, cooperate, develop, delegate, anticipate, participate, attain good habits, be polite and reliable.

How would you act and influence as a member of an internet network group? How would you act as a leader of your own home based business? Would you like to participate and develop a network and even earn money from it?

Blogging – Excellent Methods to Boost Comments

In the event you have a weblog then you will want to interact with the viewers as much as you can. This may be dependent, naturally, on the good reasons why you have a blog site in the first place. However there are a multitude of methods to increase the remarks on your blog. Allow me to share a couple of them:

1. Request opinions – several times followers will not realize exactly what to do or how to do it right. With comments, they would possibly not be certain that you really desire a reaction. If you request them then they will be very likely to reply. It is possible to say “just what do you think?” or “just what are your sentiments?” or “exactly how do YOU make this happen?”

2. Inquire – if your blog posting is prompting the viewer to contemplate things more seriously then they are much more liable to respond. You can easily ask questions like “precisely why do they do this?” or “exactly how could they be expecting us to perform that?” Asking a question needs an answer and your followers are likely to provide you that reply.

3. Be insightful or controversial – if you write a write-up that rubs a rawness or energizes the imagination then you are going to be more likely to obtain a response. You do not have to be intense or insulting, nonetheless some matters have got markedly opposing viewpoints and your followers will definitely desire to provide you a complementary one.

4. Submit a great caliber subject material – individuals want to feel that you are providing a great product and furnishing useful subject matter. These sorts of blogposts may be a lot more prone to receive comments possibly even if it is just a “best wishes.”

5. Write frequently – familiarity with your posts will assist your visitors to engage. These types of folk will probably be much more likely to interact with you. If you seldom post to your blog, your visitors will forget you and your style of blogging. Be in their minds by posting frequent, good content.

6. Create discussions on well-liked themes such as food, relationships or sports. People really like to look over and act in response to those types of things. You must be sure that you don’t upset anyone but try to find at least some material that will act as a stimulus for your readers. What are THEY passionate about? What is controversial or delicate at the moment? Challenge your readers.
