How Do You Make Connections?

How do you make connections? Sometimes it is so easy other times we are reluctant to try. Does it get easier with our time spent online? It takes time to have a true trusting relationship. Some of us have gotten burnt by people we thought we could trust and it takes time to learn how to trust again.

My friend said if the divorce goes to fruition that she would not trust again. I told her that she has been through a very tough life and if she finds someone that will treat her right it will make up for all the trials she has been in. This was not just mental it was physical pain brought on. I mentioned that the cycle continues and she should have aborted a bad situation a long time ago. Needless to say I was not allowed to speak to her because she started to stand up for herself.

When you have people on your list then let them start seeing all the sides of your personality. Open up some of your personal experiences and they will relate to you in many ways that they could not before. We are all intricate, wonderful people and there is more things good about us than bad so it is okay to share.

I have some people that have become good friends and never met them in person. Then there is the ones that only contact me when they want something. If they take time to reach out it is still a good thing.

Is Change Good?

Is Change good? If it is breaking old habits and starting good ones, than yes it is. If it is something you have no control over than it is something you are going to have to learn to live with.

When people talk about becoming an empty nester you think that will not happen to me. The good sign is that you lived long enough to become an empty nester. I remember being a young person with a little baby and seeing older people. Now it is the reverse I am that older person. Time sure creeps up on us faster than we know. I think it was better when the grand boys were here. It is wonderful to see everything from a young persons happy point of view.

When we find things that work well in our business it is nice to share so we can give others shortcuts. They are happy to learn about easier ways to accomplish the jobs to save time. We are all trying to make some money but without being locked to our computer all day.

I think the barter system should be a thing of our present. I guess that is why some sites like Fiverr show up. They give of their talents for a few bucks. This helps us as we can give the task to someone else and tackle some more important duties. I look for the specials they run with a buy one get one free down the line. Make sure you look at their qualifications and the response from their customers.

What is a Challenge?

What is a challenge? Sometimes it is just getting out of bed with a happy attitude. The whole day brings on more challenges. Dealing with people is hard to do.

I found people on the property spraying and called the electric company. I got the okay to tell them to stop. I still have to wait and see if any of the animals fall sick from all this poison. I told the person on the phone that I could smell the poison in my house. I use a fan to stay cool but I think it was bringing more of the bad fumes inside.

After they disappeared I took the hose out and sprayed water on as much of it as I could reach. They have never invaded the space this close before. He said, It is okay? I go no it is not! I said the sling blades fine but the poison no, no, no! I think there is too many shortcuts and the environment needs to be protected, as well as the animals.

The first guy said no English??? I go let me talk to the boss, then phoning the company. I had a problem with the last ones cutting too many tree branches. Then they left the debris behind.

Everyday is different and we find many challenges. I have been trying to be a sound board for my friends as they go through some challenges of their own. We can only be as good a friend as we can and listening seems to help in all situations.

You Can Never Give Too Much!

Charity they say starts at home but it sends out waves in many directions. If you show you care about others then it will definitely rub off on the little ones. I did meals on wheels for several years and the children enjoyed the older people. I think the older people got a kick out of the little ones, this may be what they looked forward to more than the meal itself.

When you give it will come back to you. I get plenty of mails asking for money to help animals, the parks and keeping people well. Then at Christmas time I get presents from them to remind me that they are so happy I helped. Remember to open those important envelopes and give with a glad heart.

My friend uses Thanksgiving as a way to show her boys that is is better to give. They help serve meals to people that have no where else to go. This gives them a sense of helping out in the community and getting the blessings of the holiday too.

It is never to early to get the giving bug ingrained in the new generation coming up. They need to concentrate on giving as a way of real life and not just the me syndrome. It goes along the line of communication and exercise which people are not getting enough of. Now everyone has a cell phone up to their ear and cannot take time to talk to people. It is a sad situation when there is not a connection between the human race. You can make someones day just by expressing good conversation and a happy smile.

Overwhelmed With Too Many Choices

What do you do when you have so many choices? It is better to go ahead and make a decision to work with one program. When you focus on one it makes promotion easier. You can add your URL to your signature file in your emails.

You can add your URL to classified ads these are working for a long time. Some will last as long as 6-9 months. Posting classifieds are a slow way to get your ad out but if you use a submitter than your job will be faster and it will go to many places. Allow one day just for adding your promotion to classifieds.

Then you can surf and put out ads the rest of the time to make sure that people find your program. Make your own splash pages and this will attract people, they see the same-o ads and when you delight them with something new they will check it out.

It takes a long time for people to decide where they are going to settle in to promote. Just because a new program comes out does not mean you have to join. You will notice that there are plenty of new programs coming out each day.

If you find one that you enjoy then upgrade to lifetime. You know that there is only so much you can do in one day so limit yourself. Time spent on the ones that are delivering the goods are what you are looking for. When you do upgrade to lifetime there is no surprises later when your charged again for a yearly or monthly subscription.
