Arrival Announcement of Personal Website: 3 Matters that Make a Difference

Arrival Announcement: Personal Website Considers 3 Matters that Make a Difference

The path of awakening is not about becoming who you are. Rather it is about unbecoming who you are not. Albert Schweitzer

Like any proud parent, I wish to announce the arrival of my completed personal website.

It has taken 70 years to give it birth, much experience, contemplation and finally a legacy to leave the world as such. I'm sure we can all relate to the levels of wisdom we can accumulate with age; but I have three matters about which I feel strongly enough to try and make a difference on this world wide stage.

...the exponential growth of the Digital Economy, the dramatic changes in the internet marketing industry within the last ten years and how more marketers can take greater advantage.  

Question: Along the way, if it is undeniable  that  internet marketing has simplified and compounded, then how can regular marketers and business owners adapt to changes and compete fairly with marketing powerhouses?
Answer: Get a different insight to avoid the earlier common marketing blunders and how to stay competitive through Business Leverage and the Power of You as an online core identity. There are two reports to check out called How to Start to Grow a Profitable Online Business and The Self-Franchise Report. The recommended program is based on a tour to try the benefits of a total marketing system, a one-stop-shop  for tools, resources and assistance every online business owner needs

Excerpt (The Self-Franchise Report): There is always need for new tools that give direction and resources for success in the digital marketplace for every person with or without technical skills with no critical details missing. In fact, if you have a plan or a tool to help the masses how to market...fortunes will be made by helping so many others.

...the internet has also hugely changed our culture with important memes that are part of any culture; our jobs, our families, social relationships, lifestyles, goals and world views. Along the way, young teenage girls with their cell phones and Selfies have openly participated in assuming adult roles as portrayed in the Social Media Circus with many kinds of negative results.  

Question: Is there a way to show teenage girls that their adolescent brains may have been hacked causing problems and regrets with Selfie addiction, with a discussion about the importance of respecting their timelines?

Answer:  A new e-book called A Teen Girl Faces Time in the Sand ...A Timely Tale of Social Media struggles, Regrets and Survival with a Super-Power Tool. The key question is asked in chapter one, "What if, you had the power to see the future and how your actions today may affect it? Would you make the same choices today?"

And so, this story is told of a young adolescent girl's struggles in a hyper media environment, the realization of her rash and brash  brain, her descent into drug addiction, her nightmares of media control, and her gradual awareness of the transient TIME measured not by numbers, counting hours or days, but with blocks and circles of experience as first drawn in the sand and explained by her Grannie.

Excerpt"BUT time is only the medium not the victim here.  A 14 year old girl can become a victim because she can make a mistake that will affect her whole life. How fair is that?  Is it her fault or is it the selfish culture around her? There must be an answer how to stop making the wrong choice at a young age."

...more recently, with greater alarm, the world is paying more attention to the Earth's bio-systems, ecological balance, pollution and climate change in particular.

Question:  How can we show young people that ecological systems are related and depended on each other from the smallest micro-organisms to plants, animals, air, water and even hydrocarbons where humans play a deciding role in survival at all levels? 

Answer: New e-book called The Incredible Journey of a Water Sprite with Roots...on his mission to find Cyclical Truths ...a children's story for all ages who care about the Earths ecosystem
This unique water sprite with plant features is often amazed with his encounters with different characters, some imaginary, but in real settings; and how many life forms and systems are interdependent where one broken link can affect the whole system. He can communicate with other beings because of a shared affinity with any organic life form of which there is a great quantity derived from our carbon based planet. The story is first person narration to personify the water sprite as a friend we should all care about his manners, fears and hopes and the essential cyclical truths he discovers.
My thoughts wander about the kind of ecology that humankinds believe in, as I have witnessed. Do they get it that natural life begins with DNA in a nucleus, one celled animals and plants, then species and then an ecosystem? Do they know that every small ecosystem is part of the total large biosphere on Earth that connects them all; water, air, food, resources, and shelter? Do they realize that perpetual growth, industry or destruction of any habitat is not sustainable on a limited planet?
to download by the end of next week.

New e-books will be available to download by the end of this week at this website.

Comments and questions as always are welcome,

Entrepreneurship Runs Deep In My Family...One Reason I Am a Self Franchised Marketer

Entrepreneurship runs deep in my family…one reason I am a self-franchised marketer

 “The only true wisdom is knowing that you know nothing.” Socrates

A dictionary definition of an entrepreneur is “a person who starts a business and is willing to risk loss in order to make money” and it can also carry an additional connotation of vision and innovation.  

My grandfather and my brother believed in plotting their future to the best of their ability and faith in hard work to gain rewards. I hope to endorse this vision as my legacy, too. 

My grandfather was an immigrant from Russia at the age of 16. He learned to speak English and rather than being part of a communal lifestyle, soon bought some land in the valley, logged it, horse-plowed it into hay fields, built a log house without nails, raised sheep for wool, a garden to sell produce, even had a small mercantile storefront to sell supplies to neighbors. He was the first man  to own a model T-Ford in the valley and in his later years, drove a Volkswagon painted lime green (I don't know why) so he could take his grandchildren on picnics.

He was a master craftsman capable of doing most anything with his hands from making shoes, to sewing a suit of clothes, to baking bread and cooking, to animal husbandry and farming where he lost his foot in a haying accident.
To me, he was my grandfather who spend time teaching me to read and write, to play ball, to fish and wander the woods looking for hazelnuts. 

My brother, Jim, also had many innate talents to master anything he set his mind to do. His education was based on computer technology and when he was downsized from a corporation, his next logical step was to start his own computer business.
At first he worked in the basement of his house, guarded at that time by a large Rotweiller with the loudest bark that didn’t deter his customers who knew of his honesty and skill sets. 
Excellent success here led to buying a 8800 square foot building to grow his business services in town. His success continued into the late 1990's when the Internet of Things  became the juggernaut for any kind of retail business owners. Two years ago, he died at the age of 66 within two months of a cancer diagnosis putting the whole valley into shock. Tomorrow, he would have been 68. 

His memories, however, will never die and he will always be remembered as an entrepreneur with the grandest vision, a business man who never wore a suit, whose handshake was contract enough, a loving father of 3 children and an amazing brother who always had a smile and a generous helping hand.

And then there are my efforts at entrepreneurship. I worked hard at being one of the top students in high school, earned a Bachelor of Education degree and taught for 24 years. When I took early retirement, my focus readily settled on running a home business of some kind to the best of my ability. 
Network Marketing became a natural choice because I believed in its foundation of helping people achieve above average income and lifestyles with minimum capital and time equity based on 3 concepts: plug into a top product, share or duplicate the message and earn residual income with direct and indirect referrals. 

My journey has traveled many routes, some harder than others, especially with the advent of the Internet Marketing Wild West, but my standards of honesty have never been compromised. In fact, for awhile, I wanted to make my brand on the internet to be known as the Fair and Democratic Home Business Mentor…imagine that, understandably drawn from my background.

Internet marketing is now the new mantra and the focus is how marketers can best access, adapt to and profit from the New Digital Economy. This has culminated in becoming a  self-franchise entrepreneur or marketer. In my experience, the old ways are constantly being challenged and replaced and the new ways have to restructure the main principles of network marketing to fully embrace the powers of LEVERAGE and DUPLICATION. 

This vision is alive and well with a mastermind internet marketer and his total marketing platform every online business owner needs.

 If interested, you can read The Self Franchise Report in two parts:

 PART ONE: Three Reasons To Be a Self – Franchise Entrepreneur

PART TWO: Four Reality Checks and Adaptations to Keep IT Real

Questions and comments are always welcome. What does being an entrepreneur mean to you?  Do you think that entrepreneurship may be a worthwhile strategy to cope with the Digital Economy?


Check out my new website soon to include two new parts: an e-book for teen girls' survival in the social media age and a water sprite's ecological journey for children.
