Use, Share, Build With Shaklee~Two LIVE Webinars!

BE PART OF THE EFFECT (USE, SHARE, BUILD)

I just got back last week from an amazing week in California!  Took me a bit to adjust back to Florida time :-)  And the kiddos wouldn’t let me out of their sight after being gone that long!  But I will get a more detailed post up soon on my week with Shaklee friends and family!

Since, starting my own business, I have been able to earn an income from home, lots of free health products and other bonuses. I have made lifelong friendships, helped many to work towards their dreams and goals and helped them change their health and lifestyles.

More than all those amazing benefits, I have grown as a person and learned the skills that it takes to succeed and I am blessed to share them with our amazing team. This team is highly motivated and serious to impact their lives and everyone they touch.

Shaklee & Project Dream Intl. has changed my life and I will be forever grateful!

Getting Back To The Basics of Life

As I write this I am preparing for a missions trip with two of my three boys.  By the time you read this we will be back already :-)  I’ll put together an update post about the trip that you can find over on my blog.

Basics Of Life Feet of those

I am looking forward to this opportunity, especially for my 9-year-old son.  We live in a society where even those of us with very little have so much more than the rest of the world.  We are very much used to instant gratification and often so spoiled but we don’t even realize it!  I am hoping this trip will open his eyes to thinking outside of his own little world and show him what REAL need is like.  I hope and pray that he will embrace this opportunity to give and learn.  I pray that he will know how blessed we can be by blessing others.

5 Tips to Cure Writer’s Block

Awesome day yesterday!!  A long day of travel from Tampa to Long Beach for the Shaklee Global conference and as an extra special treat I got to meet up with Ashley @ Pioneer Momma for lunch!!  So fun!!

Kelly @ EyesOnTheSource and Ashley@PioneerMomma

Hey, everyone! It’s Ashley again, from Pioneer Momma. This post actually started out as something else. And before that, another something else. What can I say? It happens to the best of us. There’s a new monster in town, aside from that one called procrastination: Writer’s Block.

Writer’s block is when you sit down to write, and nothing comes out. Or maybe something does, you’re just not “feeling it”. It’s a real pain in the keister. You’re all nodding in agreement at this point, right? I wanted to share a few ways that I kick that monster to the curb.

1. Take a break. Simple enough, but how many times have you found yourself in front of the computer, staring blankly, until something comes through? I know I have, more than I’d like to admit. Taking a break is like having a fresh pair of eyes come in on the project. Maybe you’ll see something you didn’t before.

2. Eat chocolate. This one might be a little self-indulgent, but during nursing school, we all took a piece of dark chocolate in before a test. Somewhere along the line we learned that chocolate helps with memory and creativity. Not sure if it is scientifically proven, but we sure had some good results…And if it doesn’t spark anything, at least you got to eat some chocolate.

3. Go for a walk. No, no, take out those earbuds. Listen to nature. Listen to yourself. Walking increases the oxygen flow to your body and blood cells. Only natural it helps your brain, too. It’s helped me hash out problems many-a-time.

4. Talk to a friend. Having a conversation with someone goes two ways. Which means you have two minds working together, rather than one. I once had a brilliant idea come to me while talking about what seemed to be absolutely nothing with my sister.

5. Write from the heart. As bloggers, sometimes we can get caught up in “writing for the readers”. You get stuck thinking, is this what they want to read? How about this? When you write from the heart, you will gain those who actually care about what you’re writing. Your readers will come to you, but only if you are honest. Write what you are passionate about. You never know how many others out there enjoy the same things! It’s a great way to not only write fascinating pieces, but make great friends along the way.

Do you have any tricks for getting rid of writer’s block? Have you tried any of these? I’d love to know!

Get Clean Basic H2 vs. Vinegar

 

GET CLEAN BASIC H2 VS. VINEGAR

I often hear people say that they want to use “green” cleaners but they think it’s too expensive or they don’t think they cleaners do a good job.   So they try vinegar.  They like it but they hate the smell. They also think it saves them money. Even if you thought you were saving money and helping the environment using the old stand-by of vinegar, you might be interested in learning that even these formulas from the past end up costing more and are actually creating more packaging waste. Not fitting in with today’s picture of being environmental.

Let’s take a closer look.

 

Get Clean Basic H2 vs. Vinegar

Usage Per Gallon for a General Cleaner: Vinegar – 1/2 cup / Basic H2 – 2 teaspoons

Distilled Vinegar

(1/2 cup per gallon of water for general cleaning)

Cost per bottle = 16 oz / .89 cents (Acme brand 10/09)

Usage Cost: to make 1 gallon general cleaner = .22 cents

Usage Cost: to make 48 gallons general cleaner = $10.68

Packaging Waste: 12 Bottles to make 48 gallons of general cleaner

note: if you need to add baking soda, dish soap, or oil to the formula for persistent stains or cleaning that’s an additional expense and additional packaging waste.

Shaklee Basic H2

(2 teaspoons per gallon of water for ALL-PURPOSE Cleaner)
Over 1000 different uses with this one bottle!

Cost per bottle = 16 oz / $10.35 (10/09)

Usage Cost: to make 1 gallon All-Purpose Cleaner = .22 cents

Usage Cost: to make 48 gallons All-Purpose Cleaner = $10.68

ONE Bottle makes 48 Gallons of All-Purpose Cleaner!

(One bottle of Basic H2 equals the cleaning uses of 5,824 bottles of 26 oz.
Windex)

For every ONE Bottle of Basic H2 used for All-Purpose Cleaning you would use 12 bottles of vinegar plus, if needed, baking soda to do the same amount of clean. Plus, Basic H2 has the smell of “clean” and is pH balanced with our skin. No need to wear gloves or a mask.

Now you can see why millions of people love and use Basic H!  Order your own here!

DIY Two Minute Bug Spray

Every Saturday we have a family tradition of walking at a nearby forest preserve…even in the skin melting Florida summer humidity!  The boys have come to expect it and ask about it throughout the week,  “Is is Saturday yet?”  The first time we went walking there, the boys complained about how tired and hungry they were, so the next time I brought the wagon, snacks and lots of WATER to cure all of the grumpiness and they have loved it ever since.

Unfortunately…the mosquitos have also loved that we come there every week!  I am not at all a fan of the long list of unpronounceable ingredients on most store-bought bug sprays, so we needed to come up with our own effective solution.  Well, last weekend we tested out our recipe and NOT ONE of us came home with mosquito bites, YAY!  And we didn’t spend our whole time saying, “Keep moving!  The bugs are swarming!!”

I love how simple the recipe is to put together and you will too!

Ingredients:

2 ounces Filtered Water

2 ounces Witch Hazel

10-15 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil

10-15 drops Lavender Essential Oil

Ready?  It’s too easy…I used a 4 ounce spray bottle.  Fill half with filtered water, half with witch hazel.  Add essential oils and that’s it!  Shake well and you’re ready to go!  Safe for kids too!  Spray all over body especially neck and ankles (at least that’s where mosquitos always get me!) avoiding the eye area.
