Lady Boss ~ Getting Started Tip 1

If you’re serious about starting your own home-base business, yet ‘Sales’ is not your forte, consider that there are some companies who thrive on doing the sales part for you. And I don’t mean ‘strong-armed selling’ or ‘pushy salespeople’ stuff. But finding a team leader who is a match for you and your friends, someone who knows the products and services better than you do starting out, who listens to what you need and who makes you and your friends comfortable with the promoting piece.
Make sense?

If you want to see if you and I are a great team match, please contact me.

Meanwhile, here is a good independent article for you to dip your toe into :

ipad stand

I have used several cover/stand options for my ipad and they just didn’t suit my needs — so I went with a very basic cover/stand for everyday carry protection and then at my home office, I use this great adjustable stand that I really like [works with my cover plus it folds up, weighs next to nothing, and travels well!] :

Swanson $5 Free Coupon

Once I have researched and found my preferred brand, I comparison shop between Amazon and Swanson [Bragg’s Organic Natural Apple Cider Vinegar with the ‘Mother’, Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil 54-oz jar, Stevita Spoonable Stevia 16 oz jar] for the best deal when I’m ready to order. Both have been great to work with.

And for my blog followers, a $5 coupon off your first order!

Have you had enough magnesium today?

You all know that I love our Vemma premium liquid nutrition, and it does wonders for my mature bod; yet there are times when I just don’t get enough magnesium — like when I try to move the coffee table with my toes or land a wicked one-pointer on my bum knee.  Soft tissue injuries are some of the longest to heal  so I’m told to add extra magnesium to speed up the healing!

There are all kinds of magnesium available and I haven’t researched many — my chiropractor recommended this one and when worked for me and earned my seal of approval, I stopped lookin’!

I love the Organic Orange flavor by Natural Calm [Other flavors are plain, lemon, raspberry lemon, cherry]. Make myself a hot toddy most evenings [add just a little hot water at a time because this stuff fizzes like Mt Vesuvius!].
Label says : Anti-Stress Drink, balances your calcium intake, vegan, gluten-free, contains no yeast, dairy, egg, soy, wheat, sugar, starch, preservatives, artificial colors or flavor, fructose, or artificial sweeteners. PS – 1 T a day works for me!

Are You An App Lover?

Okay, I admit it … I get carried away downloading apps and then forgetting I have them, never use them, you know the drill.  But, darn it, they really are great ideas!

So I’m going to mention the ones here that I actually use and just because they fit into my passions.

First this one for Effective Entrepreneurs : FREE iPad Notes [not Notes Plus, nothing fancy, you can’t doodle or dribble, just plain ol’ vanilla notetaking at its best!].   I can have unlimited Note categories, they stay there forever so I can add/ update at any time, I can have links to click and zip where I want to go PLUS I can email my notes to myself [or others]!  That’s what I call really ‘slick’ and efficient!

I just love the Dummies blogs for talking techie stuff in layman’s terms.  Here’s their take on iPad Notes :

And if you really want to take some speed notes and have trouble typing on the ipad keyboard [I’m talking to us oldie-but-goodie, speed typers who can’t look at a keyboard and type a darn thing!], I found this bluetooth portable keyboard that I just love!  Runs on 4 AAA batteries [so always carry some charged up spares for those long meetings], drop it in my bag, b/t connect, and type away.

Combo Car and Wall USB Charger

Another VTeam favorite!  Have you ever run out of the house with all of your ‘techie ‘ *stuff* like smartphone, ipad, headset ——->>>> and realize too late that you left all of your separate chargers at home?  Well, saddle up cowboys and cowgirls because this little piece of gear is super lightweight and works with any power source.  Just be sure to carry an extra USB mini and ipad cord with you and your combo gear.  Forget about how much juice you’re using in route or when your meetups run much longer than your battery!  PS – cheaper than separate car charger and wall chargers too … I like economical and highly functional gear!

Favorite Bluetooth Headpiece

This headpiece is perfect for my V Team!  It’s lightweight, has both an earhook and 3-sizes of  in-the-ear rings for a perfect fit, blocks out noise, connects to 2 devices at the same time so you can listen to your ipad podcasts / videos and hear / take calls on your smartphone.  Once paired, you’ll hear a message when you are out of range and then it automatically reconnects when you are back in range with another message confirming you are reconnected; no need to touch any buttons to answer a call, just say ‘answer’.  Listen to your amazon mp3 cloud player and automatically take calls.  One of the best headsets I have ever owned.  5 Stars from Your V Gal!
