New Simulation Shows Possibility of 100% Renewable Energy Worldwide

Don’t try to fight the existing reality, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

Buckminster Fuller said that, and it’s true. A common misconception is that clean energy cannot provide all of our energy needs because it’s not always windy and the sun doesn’t shine all the time. Now scientists have developed a model disproves that myth.

The Real Reason Your Stomach Hurts

The Real Reason Your Stomach Hurts

Why does your stomach hurt?

Why does your stomach hurt? Years and years of eating over-processed food products, too much sugar, and not getting the nutrition your body needs for fuel. Fast food, alcohol and dairy products. Yep, that'll do it. Problem is, most people don't know what to eat and what to avoid. And who has time to spend in the kitchen washing fresh fruits and vegetables every day? Or read the labels on food products when you can't even pronounce the ingredients?

If you want to avoid chronic digestive disease, prescription pills and expensive hospital procedures -- listen to your gut, and do your research.

With stomach pain, bloating, and terrible gas, I was afraid of losing my part-time job. I wanted to understand how to permanently heal and maintain my ailing GI tract. It was up to me to figure it out. First I did a few internet searches and watched some health and food-related DVDs from Netflix. Then I headed to my local library to do some research (so old-fashioned, I know). Right now I'm reading The Inside Tract: Your Good Gut Guide To Great Digestive Health.

breakfast buffetOver the past year, my breakfast has gradually changed from dining at the breakfast buffet once a week, and making scrambled eggs and sausage, having cereal or oatmeal at home. Fast forward to today, to vegetable juicing once a week, and drinking antioxidant-rich smoothies or power porridge with blueberries for breakfast. This morning I had a Blueberry Mint smoothie, with mint leaves, watercress, cashew nut butter, a scoop of brown rice protein and fresh blueberries - delicious! My stomach feels better every day. What did you have for breakfast? Do you need caffeine to wake up each morning like I did?

Why the change? My stomach has been killing me for more than two years and despite visiting five different doctors, I was still no closer to a diagnosis or a solution. To their credit, two doctors suggested I take probiotics, avoid dairy and wheat products, and of course, schedule a colonoscopy. Good advice, but not enough.

This indispensable guide is changing my health for the better, and it can help YOU. It's dedicated to the more than 60 million Americans who are known to suffer from digestive disorders. What may surprise you is that chronic digestive disease can eventually lead to hypothyroidism, chronic fatigue, asthma, osteoporosis, arthritis, anxiety, depression and worse. Autoimmune diseases have their root cause in digestive disorders. Don't take my word for it. Get the facts from the GI specialist and nutritionist who teamed up to write this detailed guide on digestive health. It takes the guesswork out of your weekly menu with simple and nutritious recipes and how to use supplements to aid the healing of your gut. I recommend you read this book at your library, or buy a copy at your favorite bookstore.

fresh produceSince I have proactively changed my diet, eating more nutrient dense whole foods, vegetables and fruit, it is easy for me to skip my favorite caffeine drink -- coffee. Now I hardly drink it at all. It's hard to believe because I was a die-hard daily coffee drinker for 40+ years!

Your health and vitality, career success, important relationships, creativity, finances and spiritual life all work together to weave a solid foundation for a happy and fulfilling life.

Don't fool around. If your stomach hurts, do something about it (and I don't mean take a pill). Listen to your gut and get back on the road to health.

How To Eliminate Distractions

Tenaya Lake summer 2009Have you noticed that being 'busy' is not getting you the results you want? That you can always find some busywork to distract you from the few critically important actions you want to avoid? After all, you started your business so that you can free your time to live a more fulfilling life. Not become a prisoner of endless unimportant tasks that take your attention away from your goals.

As an employee, your goal is to increase your value and free up time to fulfill personal dreams. For entrepreneurs, the goal is to decrease the amount of work while increasing revenue. Time is our most precious asset. Learn how to eliminate distractions, use found time productively and create a meaningful life.

In The 4-Hour Work Week, Tim Ferriss devotes an entire chapter on eliminating distractions. For starters, "identify the few critical tasks that contribute most to income and schedule them with very short and clear deadlines."

1. Get clear on whether you are being productive or just active, avoiding the important. Decide the one thing that if you accomplish it today, you will be satisfied with your day.

2. Spend less time with friends who poison you with pessimism and low expectations of themselves. Spend more time with positive friends to have the life you want.

3. Cultivate the low-information diet. For one week do a media-fast cold turkey: no newspapers, no magazines, no television, no books except for [Think And Grow Rich and The 4-Hour Work Week] and an hour of fiction at night; and no web surfing.

4. Schedule interruptions. Each night before you go to sleep, write a short list of 2-3 important tasks for the next day. Finish an important action before distracting yourself with email. Check email only twice a day (this is critical). Turn off the phone until you complete a task; screen and avoid unwanted calls and establish do-not-disturb hours. Get comfortable with saying 'no,' eliminating those things that waste time.

family timeThese a just a few tips for reclaiming more time to focus on truly important actions that take you closer to your goals. You only get one life so stop wasting time. Set the rules in your favor. Get serious about creating the meaningful life you deserve.

Honor Your Past Then Challenge The Rules

Honor Your Past Then Challenge The Rules

Wintry mix in Maryland, Dec. 2013

When you were born, you unconditionally accepted beliefs about what's possible in life from your parents and environment. Often limiting beliefs are more predominant. It's important to respect and examine your past, and decide which beliefs have outlived their usefulness. It is also time to consciously decide what YOUR beliefs are and what's possible for you.

I lived in Maryland for 34 years. Before I was born, my parents met at Morgan State College in Baltimore. My dad joined the Army after he graduated from college and was stationed in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. My parents got married in Baltimore and moved to North Carolina, where I was born and my sister and brother (fraternal twins) were born the following year.

Blizzard Dec. 2013Next my dad was stationed in Waikiki, Hawaii, where my youngest sister was born. Eventually our family settled down in Baltimore in 1961.

When you're a young child, you don't think about whether your family is rich or poor or notice that the people in your neighborhood have somehow changed skin color. Your job is to go to school, play softball at the park, jump rope, play dodge ball in the alley, fly kites and play jacks on the front porch. I still keep in touch with my good friend Linda now for over 50 years. On a visit this month to see my mother in Maryland, I talked to Linda. The weather was awful and roads were icy, so we didn't get a chance to see each other.

Now I live in Henderson, Nevada (near Las Vegas). When I turned 40 I challenged the rules and left Maryland, taking a job in northern California. My mom was appalled. It was the biggest decision of my life -- I challenged the status quo and took a risk. Even while honoring all the sacrifices my parents made for me. That decision paid off and I am forever grateful.

Are you better off than you were 12 months ago? If the answer is no, things won't improve by themselves. Time is flying faster than a high speed train. There has never been a better time to test the limits of your parents' reality and your own beliefs about what is possible for you.

Learn how lifestyle design principles can work for you to overcome the old concept of retirement: work 40 years like a slave during your best years, and if you're lucky (and in good health), you'll have enough money to retire and do the things you've always wanted. There is every reason not to wait to start living the life of your dreams. Honor your past then challenge the rules.

Don’t Wait ‘Til You’re 58! Start A Home Business Today

Don't Wait 'Til You're 58! Start A Home Business Today

Talking it over

The past 3 years have been nothing short of transformational. I was almost 55 when I started my home business; this month I turned 58. So glad I made the decision to get started. Don't wait as long as I did!

I remember that day in the spring of 2009 when I knew my full-time job was definitely NOT a good fit for me (that's putting it mildly) and was no longer tolerable.

I walked away from a relatively secure state government job with good benefits during a historic economic downturn with no idea how I was going to pay my mortgage. Call me crazy, but if I had not left my old 40-hour-week 'matrix' and entered unknown territory, I would probably never have started this website and my own growing home business (and met you!).

Don't wait 'til your 58! Seventeen reasons why you should seriously consider starting a home business:

  1. Get paid what you are worth
  2. Experience transformational personal growth
  3. Learn powerful new business building skills
  4. Help hundreds or thousands of people with your products and services
  5. Keep more of what you earn with business tax benefits
  6. Soak up results-getting training from top earner industry leaders
  7. Turn around your mindset about money
  8. Enter a whole new world of entrepreneurship
  9. Unleash your inner genius and creativity
  10. Replace and surpass your employment income
  11. Spend more time with family and friends, enjoy the great outdoors, and travel to new destinations
  12. Attend exciting educational live events; discover successful motivational speakers you never knew existed
  13. Discover the power of teamwork for everyone's success
  14. Empower yourself to handle any circumstance
  15. Become the person you want to be, live where you want to live, create the life you choose
  16. Attract new friends and colleagues who support your dreams
  17. Build YOUR dreams, not somebody else's. Turn your crazy dreams into reality!

If you've ever experienced pain and suffering because of a financial setback -- we all have -- remember this. It's our THOUGHTS about an event that cause the pain! Instead ask the questions 'what can I learn from this?' and 'how can I turn this situation around quickly for the good of all concerned?' Focus your energy on the solution. It's not as easy as it sounds. But you have to imagine a positive outcome and spend more energy on that.

There's nothing you can do about the past. But a bright future still awaits. Don't wait until you're 58! Start a home business today.

Cheers!

Freedom From False Expectations

Freedom From False Expectations

Cindy McMillan Oct2013There's a unique feature in network marketing culture that seems so contradictory that it never ceases to amaze me. It's the reason network marketing is so misunderstood. When you're first exposed to network marketing, they make it sound so EASY, even a 12-year-old can do it!

No wonder it has a bad rap. If people knew how much work it takes to become a professional, and how many years of consistent effort and skill is required, right up front... well wouldn't You want to know that?

It's true that you can start a business of your own for a low enrollment fee and that you don't need a college degree in order to be successful. It's also true that it's simple: sell more services and products and you will earn more money -- not just your personal sales but also the people in your sales organization (or "downline").

But... how do you feel about cold calling people who have no interest in what you're selling? Are you prepared to establish 'You, Inc.' online? Are you willing to invest thousands of dollars for training? Can you afford to travel to industry events several times a year? Do you have an outgoing personality? How will you find qualified people for your service or product, and how can your potential customers find you? How do you feel about making presentations? Do you have the skills you need to attract like-minded industry leaders? How will you pay for advertising without going broke?

Believe it or not, it's exciting to learn new skills. If you're just starting out, your top priority is to generate revenue AND leads while you're learning. The main thing is to be realistic and free yourself from false expectations of becoming a top earner overnight.

As a new sales rep in your network marketing company, you will get extensive training on approaching people offline. If not, find a company or sponsor who offers the best offline training for its reps. It doesn't stop there...

successful marketingOnline marketing is a powerful way to enhance your offline efforts. For many people, it's the preferred way to do business. Three established companies that offer outstanding online marketing training are Magnetic Sponsoring, the Renegade Network Marketer and MyLeadSystem Pro. They all teach how to build the 'You Inc.' business model that all top earners have achieved.

In the online sales world the list of skills can be daunting to a beginner:

  • create a unique selling proposition (sales funnel)
  • make a compelling offer in exchange for contact information (opt-in)
  • create capture pages that convert into leads
  • follow up with your leads (email marketing)
  • build a relationship with the people on your list (establish trust)
  • create sales letters that convert into sales
  • create content your readers will love (know your audience)

Huh? Don't worry, there's a solution.

In October 2010 I got started training and learning part-time. I've learned a ton from many different top-earner trainers. Now I get everything I need for online marketing, lead generation and multiple income streams from one of the most trusted professionals in the online business training industry. Things really began to take off when I read Ann Sieg's book  The Renegade Network Marketer. Any top earner will tell you, "never stop learning." Also stay focused and follow a proven system.

The secret is simple: The more you learn, the more value you can offer your potential customers and partners. The more people you help to solve their problems, the more successful you become.

Once you free yourself from false expectations about getting rich quick with network marketing, you can get on with creating a fabulous new career, a steady income and the lifestyle you desire.

Freedom from false expectations can apply to any area of your life -- close relationships, health, finances, family, friendships, your employer and even retirement. Getting real is NOT the same as disappointment. It's more like making adjustments. It frees you to cut through the nonsense and take action in a productive, practical way to get you closer to your ideals.

Cindy at Wetlands ParkRemember: Stay on track, your dreams are waiting for you.

Your Inner Rock Star

Your Inner Rock Star

Master speakerLast week I went to my first Marshall Sylver event as the grateful guest of a good friend. I learned firsthand why the most successful business owners and network marketers are those who master public speaking. Marshall Sylver is a master.

If there is one thing that most people would rather become paupers than learn, it's speaking to large groups.

I would know. I quit college because I flunked a course that required an oral presentation in front of the class. No way was I ever going to do a presentation in college. I'm outta here.

My fear of public speaking started in the fourth grade. I suffered the worst humiliation in school when a Catholic nun wouldn't let me go to the bathroom during class. (I knew I couldn't hold it any longer.) Then she called on me to stand in front of the class and do the first presentation of my young life. What happened while I was standing in front of my fourth grade classmates was embarrassing and emotionally painful. Geez, I was just a kid! That event, among others, is burned into my memory and affected the course of my life.

Present your ideasAdmittedly my self confidence is still a work in progress and every day I get stronger. Top earners and successful businesspeople command a high level of confidence and willpower. When you join a network marketing company or start a home business with big dreams of financial freedom, prepare yourself for transformation. It's a simple concept -- make more sales. And for people with few skills -- it's NOT easy.

To earn a decent income in sales, you have to get yourself in front of thousands of people and communicate the value of your product of service. And even more than that, you have to communicate the value of YOU! That takes confidence--your Inner Rock Star. Master speakers have charisma, they educate you, are great communicators, they're entertaining and project oodles of self confidence. People are attracted to them and will buy anything they promote!
Like A Rock Star

So get your Inner Rock Star primed up for business. Become an expert at getting your ideas across with style and confidence. Reach more people at live events, webinars and with videos. You can start with videos and work your way up to speaking on stage.

Set realistic expectations if you don't master this skill. Your income will be limited only by your ability to reach more people and develop a connection with your audience.

Most everyday things that we buy don't require that we attend a live event. Think banking, food, gas, utilities, insurance. Those companies get the word out with expensive television ads, through direct mail, print ads and neon signs. Big brands are also connecting with customers through social media and direct selling, and so can you. Live webinar presentations are one of the most effective ways for top earners to educate prospects and close sales!

Lady Antebellum and pop band Hot Chelle Rae perform at the 2012 CMT Music Awards in NashvilleThe goal for large and small businesses is finding loyal customers whose buying habits become automatic. (Lifetime customers are the treasure you seek.) If you are determined that you never want to be a public speaker, you'll have to be resourceful and find other ways to build trust and connect with your audience both online and offline.

But back to the Turning Point event hosted by master speaker Marshall Sylver. He was so engaging and so talented that I had to be honest with myself about my beliefs. Can I learn to be a good speaker? Do I even want to? Can I reach my income goals without getting on stage in front of hundreds of people? What kind of person would I become if I mastered this one skill?

ConcertGet in touch with your Inner Rock Star. She'll know what to do and give you the courage to get it done.

You are a top earner.
You inspire others and take action.
You are a leader.

See you on stage!
