Oh My GOSH - Who Knew They Hid So Much?

Oh my GOSH!

Last week I was hired to write the "Medical Report - What Doctor's Won't Tell You" ...and the more research I did for the document, the more sickened I became.

The cover-ups and borderline lies being created for some drugs on the market would make you absolutely SICK ... if you knew about them.

But there's the problem --- millions upon millions of people have absolutely no clue.

And here's worse news.

Millions of doctors also have no clue --- and it's not their fault!

I'm still trying to melt down the information (and believe me, there's TONS of it) to pull together a sharp, consice, accurate report that GojiTeam can hand out to their visitors --- and the hardest part about this project is all the information I have to leave out because of space limitations. This entire "hot bed" of information really deserves an entire BOOK on the subject.

Maybe I'll keep all the notes I've compiled, and who knows... I may have one of the most shocking books the world has ever seen another year from now.

If you want a copy of this shocking report, register at GojiTeam and look for the Medical Report request box. It's well worth reading if you or a loved one is taking any type of medication!

That's it for now. Stay tuned. I have more SHOCKING details to bring you on this subject.

How Would You Like To Make Money Writing?

Can you make a living through writing?

I remember the scene with my mother so well. We were standing in her kitchen when I told her in my 14 year old "wise" voice ... "Mom. I want to be a writer."

Keep in mind, 14 years old was a tough age for some girls in those days. It was the "in between stage" ... not quite old enough for dating and boys ... not young enough to be content playing with dolls, watching cartoons, or whatever else younger children did to amuse themselves back then.

The dramatic reaction my mother had to the statement can only be described as horified.

She whipped around from putting groceries in the fridge and stated emphatically, "You don't want to do that! Writers NEVER make any money! You'll be starving broke all your life."

Gee. Thanks Mom.

So I followed my parents plan for me. I entered into the Accounting field like a good little girl. Since my math marks in school were so high, they figured this would be the best move for me, that I'd make my fortunes on the path of analyzing historical numbers for various companies in stale office environments with little to no stimulation for that creative right-brain that kept complaining to me every night I fell in bed.

Was I passionate about accounting? Absolutely not.

Did I make good money in it? Definitely not.

I suppose I could have, if I were passionate about it and followed the course past the 4th level CGA program and graduated in a field where the money was flowing well, but I switched to the purchasing field where more of my right-brain thinking could be put into play.

Now, here it is, 30 years since that fateful conversation with my Mom, and I'm having my first $10 Grand month ...with many more ahead for me... and earning most of it how? WRITING!

And here's an interesting point.

I'm also looking for an apprentice, because I have so much work lined up that I can't even keep up with it all ... writing clients have been lining up at the door, and I'm even having trouble keeping up with the demand for my small home business that I built from scratch a little over 12 months ago.

Thank the lucky stars for Goji Juice. I wouldn't be able to keep up with all the demands without that sweet nectar pulling me through the 10 to 14 hour days. It takes a great deal of energy to produce killer copy for some of my clients ...and very little effort for other clients... and yet, I'm LOVING every minute of it, doing what I've had a passion for all my life.

Can you make money writing? Contrary to what my Mom believed way back then - YES!

Is there a writer hiding inside you?

Contact me. Who knows where it can lead...

PS: Get some Goji Juice too at
There's a good reason they call it the "happy juice" ...and it sure helps make the words flow!

How do you stack up with the competition?

If you are a full time at home worker, you know you're competing with a TON of other products and services around the world.

"By one estimate, 700 new products are introduced every day. Last year, 26,893 new food and household products materialized on store shelves around the world, including 115 deodorants, 187 breakfast cereals and 303 women's fragrances. In all, 2 million brands vie for attention."

For instance, I have one website converting extremely well for our topselling Goji Juice - a fantastic drink I have every single day - from FREE traffic. In fact, I get better sales from my free search engine traffic than I do from my PPC traffic. (Go figure?)

Another website, which I won't link to here since it's going through some MAJOR overhauling, is doing poorly in both search engines and elsewhere. (It needs a TON of work to fix!)

And yet, I've only just begun my exploration into blogs and bloggings as a means of getting more traffic to all of my websites. Will it prove to be a useful marketing method? Or just another HUGE investment in time that leads to few, if any sales?

Then, of course, I do the free News Release thing. (This has resulted in more than a few reporters contacting me.)

And also the link exchange thing.

Oh, and I recently found a super cool offline media auction thing where I might play with a few magazine ad slicks...

But, when you consider the numbers of new products, stacked against all those that already exist, competition is fierce --- agreed?

Sure, I have over 200 different "guerrilla marketing" techniques that I employ for marketing everything I do ...and here's the MOST surprising thing.

The majority of all my income comes through REFERRAL marketing.

Yes! Even my copywriting services (which are now adding up to $10,000 a month and more) ... every single job I've done for website content and for related writing services has come from a personal referral of one kind or another (such as customer follow-up autoresponder series, prospecting series, flash movie choreography and content, etc., etc. ...mostly for Network Marketing clients yet also a few from outside the industry).

Even our retail sales through the business my husband and I own jointly ...sales from referrals add up to more than 45% of our income.

If you're not using referral marketing in one form or another, you might want to reconsider. Just imagine how much money you could be walking away from.

Uh-oh... I smell food cooking. My wonderful husband must be doing dinner for us tonight. Gotta run.

Have a SUPER weekend!

4 Year Olds And Their Imagination

Ever since the tornado blew through our front yard and whipped away a bunch of our little guy's toys, I've been trying to help him with the dreams he's been having.

Last night he shared a bad dream with me...

"Mommy, you and Daddy were both gone. And the car was gone and the truck was gone, and I woke up alone....

I woke up and ran downstairs but you weren't there ... and neither was Daddy.

So I runned back upstairs and looked out the window and there was the big tornado right where the truck and car was 'spose to be, and stuff was flying all around... and then the mean blue lady came up the stairs and she was carrying the bad flowers --- the flowers that eat you ... and I was so scared."

Now, I know where he got the tornado idea...

But the blue lady?

And the flowers that eat you?

He continued with, "Mommy, you always have good dreams. I like your dreams. But me and Daddy always have bad dreams."

To which I answered, "Well, I have good dreams because I put good thoughts in my head and I think of nice things, and nice people, and how beautiful the world is."

"You sure have a good 'magination, Mommy."

Okay... not much I could say on that point.

Keep smiling and have a super day!
