Create the Economy of You

More and more people are starting up side jobs to earn additional income. With that being said- I wanted to share this quick read by Kimberly Palmer:

“During the height of the recent recession, with new rounds of layoffs happening weekly, I realized something: The chances of me holding onto my current job for the next thirty-plus years was about as likely as me landing a spot on Survivor and actually winning the million dollars. I needed a back-up plan, or another source of income that would save me if my primary one suddenly fell through.

That back-up plan turned out to be my side-business of selling money planners on Etsy. Soon after I got started, I discovered a whole world of people doing the same thing – launching side-businesses to supplement their income. Not only does it provide greater income – and the incredible satisfaction that comes from creating a product or service that helps people – but it also works as a safety net. If our full-time jobs ever do disappear, our side-businesses are there to catch us.

Given those benefits, it’s no surprise that almost one-third of the freelancers on Elance.com also have full-time jobs, or that over 7 million workers, around 5 percent of the workforce, hold more than one job. Side-gigs are even more popular among young Americans: The Young Entrepreneur Council recently found that one in three millennials have launched one.

After interviewing over 100 side-hustlers, I learned that the successful ones tend to share these three traits:

1. They are intimately familiar with what motivates them, and it’s often something big: A new baby, a layoff, or another major life change. They use it to stay focused during the challenging parts of growing a side-business.

2. They pick side-businesses that leverage their existing skills, resources, contacts, and interests. Their ventures often enhance, rather than conflict, with their full-time jobs.

3. They keep their expenses low, which includes start-up costs. Since you can launch a side-business with very little cash by using existing infrastructure — freelance websites, e-commerce sites, blogging platforms, social media – you can usually get started for less than the cost of a nice lunch.

Building a side-business often starts off as a quest for financial security – but ends with much greater career satisfaction.”

Frequently Asked Questions

ultimate body applicator

What is the Ultimate Applicator?
The Ultimate Body Applicator is a non-woven cloth wrap that is infused with a powerful, botanically based formula to deliver maximum tightening, toning, and firming results in as little as 45 minutes! It continuously hydrates for firmer, smoother, more youthful-looking skin, and reduces the appearance of cellulite and skin slackening.

How do I use the Ultimate Body Applicator?
The Ultimate Body Applicator comes in a versatile shape that can be applied wherever you choose to see results, such as the stomach, sides, back, upper arms, thighs, or lower legs.
To use the Ultimate Body Applicator, simply open an individual Ultimate Body Applicator package (four included in each box of Ultimate Body Applicators), remove the Ultimate Body Applicator cream-infused cloth wrap, and unfold it. Place the cream-infused side of the wrap against your skin on the area of your body where you wish to see results.

How does the Ultimate Body Applicator work?
While many body wraps simply cause water loss, the Ultimate Body Applicator uses a botanically based cream formula that, when applied to the skin, gives you tightening, toning, and firming results that last. The botanical ingredients help to deeply hydrate and nourish the skin while reducing the appearance of cellulite and redefining the appearance of your body’s contours. These cutting-edge ingredients work to give you visible results in just 45 minutes, while other ingredients in the formula continue to work over the next 72 hours, leading to progressive results.

How often can I use the Ultimate Body Applicator?
We recommend you use a new Ultimate Body Applicator once every 72 hours. The formula in the Ultimate Body Applicator works progressively, giving you continual results for 72 hours after use. Each individual Ultimate Body Applicator can only be used once and should be discarded after use.

How long should I leave on the Ultimate Body Applicator?
If it is your first time using an Ultimate Body Applicator, we recommend that you only leave the Ultimate Body Applicator on for 45 minutes to test your skin’s sensitivity to the natural ingredients. For best results, use Defining Gel twice a day in between your Ultimate Body Applicator uses.

Can I wear the Ultimate Body Applicator overnight?
Just 45 minutes is all that is necessary, but you can wear the Ultimate Body Applicator longer. If it is your first time using an Ultimate Body Applicator, we recommend that you only leave it on for 45 minutes to test your skin’s sensitivity to the natural ingredients.

Can I use more than one Ultimate Body Applicator at a time?
Ultimate Body Applicators are intended to be used on one area of the body at a time. The Ultimate Body Applicator targets the specific area where it is applied, so using one Ultimate Body Applicator at a time on one area of the body will allow your body to better absorb the formula more effectively and, consequently, see the best results because its effects are being targeted to one specific area.

What about for arms and legs? Is it okay to wrap them at the same time?
You may use two Ultimate Body Applicators on areas such as the arms or legs (one on each arm/leg) in order to promote symmetrical results.

What size is the Ultimate Body Applicator?
Each Ultimate Body Applicator is approximately 13” x 21” and comes in a versatile shape that can be applied wherever you choose to see results, such as the stomach, sides, back, upper arms, thighs, or lower legs.

Is this just water weight loss?
Absolutely not! This is not a water weight wrap. The results from a full application (4 wraps) are real and can last from 2-6 months depending on your lifestyle habits. You can place the wrap anywhere on your body except the face.

How much water should I drink when I use the Ultimate Body Applicator?
We recommend that you drink up to half of your body weight (in pounds) in fluid ounces of water daily. Staying hydrated is key to helping you see maximum results with the Ultimate Body Applicator.

How long do the results from the Ultimate Body Applicator last?
While results from the Ultimate Body Applicator are lasting, you can counteract the results from the Ultimate Body Applicator by eating poorly and not regularly exercising (as is true with any weight loss or body contouring results). Applying Defining Gel, which can help improve skin’s texture and tightness, between Ultimate Body Applicator uses can help ensure that you maximize and maintain your results.

6 Simple Solutions for Getting Rid of Stress

1. Don’t take things so personally. Part of what creates stress is thinking that what other people do is something that is being done to us, or is a reflection of us or our actions.

2. Change your expectations. If you expect a co-worker to always be nice and they continue to be cranky, you’ll be disappointed. You are choosing to be disappointed when you expect others to do something even when you have evidence to suggest that the behavior is highly unlikely.

Overcome Your Fear of Rejection

I find that this topic is something most everyone can relate to in one way or another. This post in general is how to overcome fear in Network Marketing, however, the fundamentals can be applied to the fear of rejection in general.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Everyone experiences anxiety when faced with talking to others about their new home business. Sabotaging self chatter begins in your mind and eventually it will consume us. I was terrified when I first began introducing folks to my home business. I’d stare at the phone and shake. My heart would begin racing. I would literally play out the conversation in my mind before I even picked up the phone to call anyone.

7 Qualities Of Incredibly Productive People

7 Qualities Of Incredibly Productive People

Great article from INC. Here’s an excerpt:

#1 They do the work in spite of disapproval or ridicule.

Work too hard, strive too hard, appear to be too ambitious, try to stand out from the crowd. It’s a lot easier and much more comfortable to reel it in to ensure you fit in.

Pleasing the (average-performing) crowd is something remarkably productive people don’t worry about. (They may think about it, but then they keep pushing on.)
