I am now a journalist (Examiner)

I’ve just been accepted to be an Examiner with . What does this mean? I will be a contributing writer for the subject of Career Coaching for the Colorado Springs, CO area. So, while I’m doing this blogging stuff, I will also be doing a weekly ‘column’ on this subject. This is a big step to move from the Blogosphere and into the world of e-writing.

But did you know that this is on more way to get exposure of your work and perhaps an other small source of income? I let you know a little more on this when I get more settled in there.



The way to get rid of ’emotional baggage’

The real way to get rid of emotional baggage…have fun!

Coffee that’s healthy and smart?

I have been trying for some time now to find a ‘healthy’ coffee that will provide energy and be a core to social functions while building an income. Wow coffee that is healthy? Who would ever believe this? I’ve checked this out and came across five reasons why this particular series of coffees and teas may be one of the best social function builders and provide a long term income:

1. There’s the product, of course — an ideal fusion of wellness and deliciousness, health-mindedness and genuine cafe indulgence. From bold black coffee to soothing red tea, luscious hot cocoa to hearty steel-cut oats, Gano Excel’s line of Café 2.0 products are unlike anything the world’s seen. And with the health benefits…well, come on. It’s pretty amazing stuff. We decided that this is what most people love: great products at a reasonable price, and a honest dedication to quality.

The product is also super-easy to market. I mean, we’re not peddling potions, lotions or pricey juices — this is coffee, affordable, delicious coffee.

2. Knowing where the product comes from! Unlike some companies, we have our own plantation in Malaysia, and a high-tech research facility where our Ganoderma-infused products are produced. If you think about it, how many companies like ours can say they control the creation of their product from top-to-bottom? Can any other “healthy coffee” company say that? That’s why Gano Excel is more than healthy coffee — it’s Café 2.0, a totally new idea of what it means to bring wellness-boosting coffee to the people.

3. The comp plan is mind-blowing. It’s like we’ve taken the best parts of every referral marketing plan you’ve seen and brought them together. It’s perfect for people who just want their coffee to pay for itself AND the serious business builder — which is, if we may say so ourselves, awesome.

4. Field and Corporate Synergy. We’re all on one big team here: field and corporate, equal and united! Whether through cool new marketing collateral, functional online tools like your back office, or hosted events and special video presentations, it’s our job to serve you. Our IT guys and our programmers, accountants and customer service reps, vice presidents and creatives, and (of course) our CEO and founder are all here to make your life easier. At out corporate offices, affiliates shares desks with corporate employees: we’re one big team at Gano Excel!

5. PEOPLE! Sorry to be all shout-y about it, but that’s one of the most important things in any company — the people you work with. We get emails from and meet with Canada, Peru, and all over the United States, and we’ve yet to find a Gano Excel affiliate we wouldn’t want to share a cup of coffee with! Our top leaders are friendly and accessible, and our affiliates are fun, people-oriented and (frankly) the best in this industry.

I know this sounds unreal to some. The thought of a healthy coffee that can build an income. Give it a try and see what YOU think!

No to talk, no to transgressions, no to the People?

Wait a minute. First we here in Colorado can only go to Obama talks if we are invited. Somewhat elitist? Don’t forget that when the Democratic Convention happens is Colorado that all homeless people will be gone from sight. They will be given tickets to movies, or sent to ‘hiding’ events and so on. I thought the programs that the Democrats fight for were to help these people. MMMM? Has something gone wrong here? Even if these people can’t vote based on a lack of permanent addresses, they matter and are part of US. Why must they be hidden?

Now Obama wants to run away from the Town Hall style debates McCain offered with Obama saying no because he might say something that is actually real perhaps showing his ideas of what the real changes will be. Now it appears if any campaign worker and I mean even down to volunteers can’t say ANYTHING that is not on an approved list of whatever it is, they get kicked out. I don’t get it. Why is he running away from the people? Why is he not wanting to actually face the PEOPLE (US mind you)? This is change? Change to what. This is not Democratic, not Liberal, and not even within the realm of our desired direction. I feel that Ombama might be walking so far to the Left that he looking at fascism as the change. Please listen to him (directly) not what the press says, not what the media says. Listen to bloggers that count. Listen to independent non-big-media sources that give you the real information. Please take time to do research on all involved in this upcoming election. The change is OURS! WE count. We matter. WE VOTE!!!

Free Press? Big Media is getting nervous and calling US names.

Listen to this and comment. We are the Citizen Journalists! We make the difference and want the real public to know what is really going on.

It’s obvious to me that Bill Moyers has the right attitude to support us , the PUBLIC not mainstream media.

Your thoughts wanted on this

Here’s a statement I’m throwing out for all my readers to comment on:

Why do we embrace confusion when we should welcome social fusion ?

That’s all. I would like to have you all comment on this question.

Psychological Sales and The Marketing of Stuff

What is really going on with marketing of everything from ‘stay at home moms’ and ‘single mothers’. Is this real or is this a new trend in psychological techniques to get a sympathy purchase. What do you think when you see an incentive that says something like: we will donate x% of sales to save the y ? Are you more likely to buy something from a group that claims to be ‘green’? I’m throwing this thought out because I feel that a new marketing strategy is being used just to get us to buy more and more when we have less and less to spend.

Sure we want to help a particular group when they say certain things. But, how much does it really help and how do you know it actually is going where it claims? Does anyone out there take time to check the legitimacy of these ‘social strings’ attached to get a sale?

I offer a product that works and has a great track record. The purchaser all of a sudden changes to another vendor simply because they make a specific claim. They end up paying more, getting worse service, and perhaps have their name sold to every other marketing group.

Are you more likely to click here for a special business or click here for a business that supports ‘Save the Children’ ? Would you buy a cell phone that is designed for seniors and children buy clicking here or just doing ‘regular’ cell phone shopping by clicking here?

It’s up to you!
