Lover. Motivator. Visionary. Dreamer.

Almost anyone who has ever worked a part-time job has wished they were their own boss. At some point or another. Each time they were asked to sweep the floor or mop up a customer accident, they wanted for someone else to handle the dirty work. Instead of doing the dirty work, they wanted to act as manager and schedule how and when something was done, not to be the one who actually had to do it. Throughout this process, there’s many things that can go “wrong.” Maybe they had an issue with someone’s management style. They saw how it was done, how it could be improved, and wanted to branch out with their own efforts. These types of experiences, after all,  are some of the main reasons franchisees start their own enterprises in the first place.

It’s also one of the main reasons they’re successful.
No matter what led you to starting your own business, however, there a number of perks that can come from being one’s own boss. The obvious ones, like not being told what to do, of course. But the list doesn’t end there. In fact, there are plenty more pros to being your own boss. Many of which aren’t realized until they’re readily being enjoyed. Such as:
Last-Minute Schedule Adjustments
As an employee, virtually any time you have an appointment, need to leave for a personal reason, etc., you have to approve it with the boss. When you’re the boss, however, no such formality is needed. So long as your customers are covered, you can take off and tend to what needs to be done. Even if the appointment is last minute.
Pleasing Yourself
It’s a great feeling to impress the boss. But it’s an even greater feeling to impress  yourself. It allows you to reach even greater accomplishments and is a satisfying step that will motivate you to work even harder.

1. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and say; ‘I am very rich. Marry me!’ – That’s direct marketing

2. You’re at a party with a bunch of friends and see a gorgeous girl. One of your friends goes up to her and pointing at you says; ‘He’s very rich. ‘Marry him’ – That’s Advertising

3. You see a gorgeous girl at a party. You go up to her and get her telephone number. The next day, you call and say; ‘Hi, I’m very rich. Marry me’ – That’s Telemarketing

4. You’re at a party and see a gorgeous girl. You get up and straighten your tie, you walk up to her and pour her a drink, you open the door (of the car as taught here) for her, pick up her bag after she drops it, offer her ride and say; ‘By the way, I’m rich. Will you marry me?’ – That’s brand recognition

5. You’re at a party and see a gorgeous girl. She walks up to you and says; ‘You are very rich! ‘Can you marry me?’ – That’s brand recognition [click to continue…]


What we strive to be in everyday life should be better people. Our goals should involve being more loving, more caring and focusing more on the positive aspects of life as 2015 is nearing a wrap. So I thought it would be best if I wrote about the way men should present themselves and hold themselves coming into 2016. As growing up does not necessarily lead to a boy becoming a true gentleman.

Being a gentleman does not evolve from the outside but rather from our own innate beliefs and values. These values and beliefs are not necessarily taught through schools or from parent and are required to be self learned.

I for one, am far from perfect however I continually look for ways that I can improve and I feel like it would be fitting sharing this with others in hopes that 2016 heads in the right direction of progression.

As we look at society as a whole we tend to find many issues with the way men conduct themselves, that is not to say, that women are perfect. No, far far from it. With the younger generations involving themselves in equally reckless behaviors including unsafe sex, binge drinking, drug abuse and other risk taking behavior on both sides. I want to look at 12 ways that we can start off on the right path and progress from boys to gentlemen.

1. Respect
As gentlemen, it is expected that we respect ourselves and others around us. In saying that, we must dress appropriately and in a manner that shows we respect ourselves and respecting those who we come into contact with.
We must respect everyone, including females and other men. Regardless of whether these individuals respect themselves, a true gentleman does not lower his standards to others. He does not cuss, he respects everyone and he does not degrade another male for the pleasure of himself. He respects and listens to the opinions of others including those who do  not agree with him.

2. Manners
Goes hand in hand with respect. Knowing whats acceptable in certain situations is down to education, for most manners are unspoken. A true gentleman says please and thank you, looks someone in the eye when they are speaking or are spoken to by someone else. He holds himself in good posture and again,  avoids swearing. This also includes taking other peoples feelings and emotions into consideration when making decisions, in your actions and in the way you conduct yourself.

3. Integrity
Stay true to your word. If you make a promise keep it. There is nothing worse in this world than a man who says he will do something and doesn’t do it. This also includes being loyal. Remain loyal to your friends and your woman.

4. Chivalry
Chivalry separates the gentlemen from the boys. A true gentleman holds the door for his woman, he pays attention to the little details of his woman and he makes her feel like a queen.

5.  Well Presented
I did mention this in respect but its that important that I had to highlight it again. No woman wants a male who looks like he just crawled out of bed to take her out. Focus on the details. Be well groomed and dress appropriately for the occasion. Being well presentable shows that you take pride in your appearance and that’s a must for the true gentleman. [click to continue…]


How to Get Higher on Google – Every Business Whether Online or Traditional Brick and Mortar Wants to Rank Higher In Google or Yahoo. Why? Well in one sentence….


In a nutshell a higher rank means more visitors, and more visitors mean more sales, or more advertising revenue.

If the phrase or phrases you are trying to use are already being highly used your not going to rank well and getting indexed or ranked well will be a long and hard process in itself. 

It used to be as simple as putting the keyword you were wanting to rank and bank for in the <title> and at least one part of of the page. [click to continue…]


Are you a Mom? If so, thank you for making life fun, fulfilling and meaningful and sometimes tough on us as kids…..well I know at least my mom was tough on me a lot but it definitely shaped who I am today.

If you have the title of “Mom” I have a deep profound respect for you because I know exactly how hard it can be and if you are a single mother even more so.

So from me to you, Thank you!

As we continue to grow our team and more people become customers of our products I am starting to see some amazing women emerge. Lives are being transformed in ways I did not even imagine possible but it is an amazing and fulfilling experience to be apart of this.

The money is a plus for being part of this company but more so for me is the vision and the freedom! My sole desire is to inspire others to want to live their dreams and show them how I did it.

I especially love to work with people that have experienced past struggles because we use this as their motivation for themselves and inspiration to get others started.

However, this phenomena has taken a life of its own because you know what you don’t have to be perfect to be successful….you just need to right steps and drive daily and you will be successful.
