Where does the time go?

Oh my goodness... I am not going to ask this question again.  LOL!!!

Well, it's been a great first month of a new year.   There was some accomplishment with me blogging more which will get much better in February (my birthday month).

I got a new business partner name Pam.  She and I meet over a year ago at the Rich Dad Poor Dad seminar here in Dedham, MA.  She invited me to take a look at her business which I did find to be interesting.  Anyway she has now joined me.  Way to go Pam!!!

I went to my second "Don't Weight" meeting on Thursday.  I had not progressed much at all.  I did horrible with my goals especially my eating.  I didn't lose or gain.  Over the next two weeks I will drop two pounds.

Are you looking for motivation to get you out of a rut? How can I help?

Do you have a business you are passionate about and would like to promote it?  Let me know.

How can I know if someone I'm speaking to is a good prospect for you?

Hope you had a wonderful January.... On to the Next!!!

Already been too long!

It has been too long already since my last post.  I am not going to allow that to happen.  So let me tell you what has been going on with me.

So much has happened......

I started in a Our Community 52 Week Money Challenge on Facebook.  Have you heard of it?  Would you do it?
It is really easy.  You start with $1.00 and each week you double that dollar until you have put in $52.00 the last week of the year.  By then you will have $1378.00.  What would you do with it?
I have not decided yet what I will do with it but I will let you know as it draws near.

My last few weeks has been loads of fun.  The week of the 6th, our big event 2014 Road To Diamond Tour went great.  I was in charge of the time which everyone still went over.  We had 85 in attendance and 29 were potential new business partners.  It was so exciting.  It was going on simultaneously in seven different cities around the United States.  We were in:
Birmingham, AL
Boston, MA
Detroit, MI
Los Angeles, CA
New York, NY
Philadelphia, PA
Pittsburgh, PA

Do you live in either of those locations?

I started with a weight loss support group this past Thursday.  There are 5 women and 2 men, a nutritionist and the administrator, both women not included in the 5.
Our first meeting we introduced ourselves a little different.  We stood up the first time, gave our name, where we lived and our favorite color or whatever we wanted to share about ourselves.  If anyone in the group had your same first name or last, liked your favorite color or lived in the same area would stand up too. It went like this:

My name is Lisa
I was born and raised in Boston, MA
I have one daughter
I love all kinds of foods (most of the time)
I love all colors but Orange is the top
I crochet
and I'm an entrepreneur

If you can relate to any of those, you would stand up too.
Someone said they loved chocolate and all of us including the men stood up.

We did that three times.  The next time it was to tell what were our triggers and what brought us to the group.  The last time was to talk about our goals and what we would like to get from the group.
We filled out a form with our food changes and our activity changes  for the 20 weeks we will be doing this.
My food change is to have more fruits and veggies for snack.
My activity change is to walk 90 mins a day 5x a week, dance 30 mins 3x a week and weights 30 mins 3x a week.

How have I been doing?
I am doing good.  It will be great when that time of the month is over.

Speaking of that time of the month.... I CAN NOT WAIT UNTIL IT IS OVER FOR GOOD.
Now I said it!!

I have never ever ever ever felt that way before about something good for my body but let me tell you... I AM OVER IT!!!

So this past weekend, I went hanging with my cousin for her birthday.  Her friends are a riot. We had a good time.  Our first destination did not get started until we arrived.. For real!  You've heard that saying "The party don't start till I run through'.  Well that was the truth.  It was like tumble weeds in there.  Then we went dancing.  That was the first time in 27 years that I went out and did not drink any alcohol.  I was pregnant then.  If I didn't tell you before, I am not drinking for 90 days.  I started January 1st.  This is not a resolution but it was time to detox the liver and it's going well.  It feels good to know that I do not have a problem with it. Being out while others were drinking did not make me desire any.... Out of the seven of us ladies out four were not drinking.

BTW, I am moving up the ranks... I made Regional Executive tonight.

What have you been up to?

Happy Monday!!!

This is the first official week of the New Year and by the end of the week it will be very close to the middle of the month.  Time is flying!!  Okay, I won't rush it.  

What is your resolutions for 2014?  How many have you broken or forgotten about already?  If you are serious then you are solid...

I did not make any resolutions only solutions to what was not working for my business and my home life in 2013.

My business is on the EXPLOSIVE growth.  I am on a 90 day blitz to gain my rank of Presidential Executive by March 22nd.

I gave up alcohol for my 90 days.  I am on Facebook much less  and working to get on Twitter and Instagram more.

My current living arrangements had to change and I made that happen.  AMEN!!!

Like I said these are not resolutions, just solutions to things that needed to be changed.

What are your solutions for 2014?

Happy New Year 2014!!! 
It has been a very long time since my last post. 365 days to be exact.  I am totally ashamed!!! 
This is not be an annual blog, I do promise.  My #1 goal to my blog is to post on a regular basis. To share what is going, ask questions, meet people and explore.   

Today is the first day of a new year with new challenges, rewards, novices and experiences.  

I started my day with the Inspirational Morning Vitamin aka the IMV. It was a great start to a my day and giving myself the jump start needed to be inside of those ropes featured at our next convention in April.  

I went off to the store in pursuit of a very important side dish needed for my New Year's day meal.  Well, of course because I waited til the day of to get it, there was no more.  Completely out at three different stores.  Was I upset they were out?  No, it only solidify my actions over many years of my life.  Sometimes I don't exude the drive needed to exemplify URGENCY.  I was in the store on Monday, I didn't have a list with me so I didn't think about my need for my ingredients.  If I had taken my planned walked that did not happen, I could have gotten it then but since I didn't leave the house at all.... You get the picture.

How will I change this in 2014?  By setting goals, sticking to them. Making a to do list not the day it needs to be done but the day before. As well as a weekly list, a monthly and yearly.  

Today I spoke with a few people about making changes and exploding this year.  Getting more eyes in front of the screen is my biggest goal from here on out.

So let us get reacquainted since it has been so long.

What were some milestones, thrown stones or non-passed stones in 2013 you endured, accomplished or overcame?

Here are a few things I can remember doing in January 2013.

I cut my hair for a new look and fresh start.
I gained two new preferred customers for my health and wellness business.  We had our first meeting for the year on the 14th at the ZAZ Restaurant.   I remember having a wrap there that I wasn't too fond of (pic attached).  That was the first time that had happened out of all the times I had eaten there over the last four months of me going there.  I think it was the veggie wrap which the hosted had referred.  I let her know I didn't like it.
I was consulting at this law firm in the Financial District.  The Jamaica Tourism Board hosted a private dinner for us as a thank you for coming down as if they had not done enough when were there.  I was glad I was able to attend.
We tried a new sushi spot called Genki.  It was pretty tasty enough for us to go back a few times during the year.
I was a vendor at a Health and Wellness fair in Weymouth.  It was a positive experience and I will support them often.

I went to the Bridal Expo at the Park Plaza Hotel and let me tell you, I had the best cupcake I had ever had.  I would be ordering some more.
