Create Lasting Memories

It seems like so often we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life that we forget to smell the roses.  I know it sounds a little cliche however it’s true. More so than you realize.  When was the last time you slowed down enough to notice what was really going on around you?  When was the last time you walked barefoot through the park, or played hopscotch with your kids.  Consider engaging your children on their level. Life is too short not to enjoy the small things.  “Stuff ” isn’t all that important when you’re not around to enjoy it.  Creating lasting memories often times require little to no financial input. You’ll be surprised that those insignificant moments to you created a lasting impact on your children.

I spend a lot of time with my kids being a stay at home mom and everyday is a joy.  I learn and experience something different with each of them. Taking nothing for granted and trying to teach them to do the same.  I give my kids each a mommy date day. This day comes with a day off from school where we hang out and do something they want to do. Each one gets their own day separate from their siblings.  It gives me a chance to focus on just that one child with no distractions. They have always looked forward to these days each school year. They also get those special days with their dad. He is a truck driver and he takes them one by one on the road with him during the summer months. Children grow up so fast.  I just asked myself, “where did the time go?” I have a son graduating from high school in a few months, a rising 10th grader and a rising 8th grader. It struck a nerve with me because I feel like I have so much yet to experience with them.  As kids get older they tend to want to hang out with their friends more and be more independent of their parents, but I feel its up to us (as parents) to continue to create those family, bonding moments separately and collectively.

Take some time and do something different. Surprise your family with a game night after dinner, or a walk on a nature trail. Get to know your kids and allow them to know who you are. Engage your spouse in date night. Reconnect with them and savoir those moments.  Reconnecting and building stronger bonds will allow you to reap lasting rewards for years to come.  Talk…..Yes, actually have conversations with one another  Put away the electronic devices and engage one another.  Share stories and create new ones!

creating memoriesThe little things are what we remember. The talks, the walks, the cry’s, the unspoken moments of  unconditional love.  It’s what we hold on to.  The Memories….making them and remembering them til the end.

My Reflection

I decided to walk to the park today instead of drive.. My mind has been clouded with so much with all that has been going on in my life.  I had a great walk to the park and then I did a few laps around the track before I sat at the bench to reflect on a few things and before heading back home.

As I sat I wrote in my journal for a while and then I began reading the Bible. I started with Psalms 1 and went through to Psalms 18 and then it hit me….  It’s not that God isn’t conscious of how my life is going it’s more of what I’m not doing to further up lift his kingdom during these trying times (just like in the good times) that is holding me back from having my tree bear fruit so to speak.  So often I find myself trying to control the situations around me and I realized it’s not up to me. I have to let God do His thing so others may know that it wasn’t me it was HIM. The one word that kept coming up was ‘Meditation’. This is something I must put into action. We all must set aside moments in our day for daily reflection on Gods’ words. This will not only ensure that we have a deeper understand of what we should be doing but will also show God that we are serious about our commitment to live a Righteous & Humble life.

I don’t claim to have all the answers but what I realized is that it’s not hard to find them.. It simply takes for you to humble yourself enough to get the courage to grab your Bible and say a prayer as your open the pages, “Lord, I come to you as humbly as I know how seeking guidance and understanding.  I can’t do this alone and I realize I don’t have to. Show me the way Lord that I may forever lift your name above all others. In Jesus name Amen”

Below was a post that was shared from a friend on a social media website that got me thinking and I Pray it blesses you as much as it has me.

Whatever you face, Jesus Christ has already faced it.
Jesus knows what it is like:
to be hungry
to be tired
to be lonely
to be hurt

to be hated
to be beaten
to be persecuted
to be misunderstood
to be mistreated
to be mocked and laughed at
to be betrayed by a friend
to be tempted to sin
to be responsible for employees
to feel forsaken
to feel hopeless
to have no spouse
to have no earthly father there to help
to have lost a loved one
to have to pay taxes
to have money stolen from you
to have the responsibility to provide for a family
to live under an oppressive government
to experience extreme pain

Don’t be afraid to talk to Jesus about anything. Not only does He understand, but He knows how to help you so you can overcome and have victory.

*He Bore it All that we might Live*  He lived as a man and paid the ultimate price that we may know that it is possible to live in the world but not be of the world.
God’s promises have always been contingent upon us living by His word, following His guidance and doing His will. Before you call on Him in your time of need stop and make sure you are living accordingly and that excludes mans way….If not, know that it’s not too late.  God loves unconditionally, without malice or judgement in his heart how can you not want someone like that on your side cheering you on? He is the ultimate friend, counselor, healer and provider.
All the Best ~Tamara

Self Reflection

The most difficult thing in life is to know yourself.
~Thales

I was trying to put some things into perspective for myself and justify why things are the way they are.  What I’ve realized is that I’m blessed beyond measure despite what my situation currently looks like.  I need to learn how to role with the flow instead of always trying to fix something or correct it.  I can’t continue to live my life according to the standards of what others feel life at this stage should be.  I have to be appreciative of how far I’ve come and where I’m going and just know that as long as I continue to move in a positive direction and continue to grow things will be okay.

Sometimes I find myself being frustrated with my kids behavior at home, especially since for the most part due to my husbands job I’m here alone with them.  Instead of always focusing on the negative I need to embrace the positive.  They are very well behaved when we are out, or I have to leave them with people. Neither one of the older boys (19, & 17) have brought home any babies.  They make good grades and haven’t been in trouble with the law or at school.

Sometimes I find myself being frustrated with my current financially situation, especially for the most part I’m in a one income household. The income from my home based business isn’t at a level YET where it needs to be to bring my husband off the road.  What I’ve realized is that it’s not so much where I am but where I’m going. It’s about the fact that not one week goes by that God hasn’t provided us with what we needed to sustain our lives.  We may not always have what we want but we have what we need.  That’s what matters and that’s what’s important.

Sometimes I find myself being frustrated with the current state of being a work from home mom in the MLM Industry for the most part because I don’t feel as if I’m moving at a rate I feel I should be.  What I’ve learned is that as long as I do what I need to do to progress and I continue to market myself and my business wherever I will get to where I want to be in this company.  Most importantly as long as I keep God first in everything things will be fine. I’m determined to be successful in my business and that determination will get me to the top.

Sometimes I find myself questioning my decisions period as if I can’t make right decisions.  I’ve learned that it’s a matter of what is best for me mostly and my family. My life actions should not be based on what everyone else has going on.  I’m growing into my own, and I don’t feel the need to justify my actions as long as they aren’t harmful or dangerous. God has blessed me with a nice home, beautiful children, wonderful husband, income to sustain our lifestyle, a wonderful home business opportunity, food, clothing, and transportation. I’m SATISFIED! I’m HAPPY! I’m GRATEFUL! I’m BLESSED!

In this self reflection the most important thing I’ve learned is to just breath.  I have to  move forward in my life in a positive direction that keeps me growing and focusing on the positive more than negative.  I have a forgiving God, I have a loving family, a loving husband and a wonderful home based business with wonderful people that I have come to call my friends/family.

I am so thankful for the life God has afforded me to live. I’m even more blessed to be a blessing to so many. I’m stepping into what is divinely mine and moving forward. My business is overflowing and my income is overly abundant. I’m wealthy beyond measure.

God first – Family second – Business third

Wife of a Truck Driver

My husband has been working in his dream job for 14 years. Driving OTR {Over The Road} doing what he has dreamed of doing since he was old enough to speak.  This started out as a great adventure for me as I had never really left the boarders of  my home state Georgia. With a 3 year old and a new born often times we packed up and hit the road with him.  It was during these times of travel early on that I gained a new respect for truck drivers and their families.  This is a hard life and a dangerous life. Getting paid to travel the country is the way I view it.  With the birth of our third son I traveled less often.  My friends often asked, “How do yo do it?… Your husband is gone for a week at a time and you are home alone with the kids.”  My response, “It gets easier as time goes on. You learn to develop a lot of trust and patience.”

As the children get older you have to start to deal with a lot of questions from the kids of why can’t dad make it to this, or when is dad coming back.  Those moments reduce you to tears. Even though my kids have grown up with their father on the road they still hate having him leave.  On those rare occasions when we all get the chance to ride with him all they do is sleep.LMBO…yeah they sleep and eat. In between that they do enjoy themselves. Especially when their dad let’s them walk around with him while he does his PTI {Pre Trip Inspection}, or sweep out the trailer.

I did attempt to learn to drive in hopes of becoming is partner on the road, but that didn’t go so well. I was afraid to back up with the trailer.  I learned a lot but driving I knew wasn’t going to be my thing. His ability to dictate his schedule became easier when he became an O-O {Owner Operator}.  With the rise in fuel prices and the many repairs we made the adult decision not to put our dream of working for ourselves before our family and turned the truck in.  You would be surprised at how many drives will not do that. So many drivers value that truck over there families. We look forward to doing it again.

This is a challenging life, but I wouldn’t trade it for nothing.  I do admit there are times when I miss him so much it hurts to talk to him on the phone. I really takes a strong woman to live in this situation especially with children.  You have to be creative and learn to plan special away time just for the two of you.  It also helps to get the feel of what it’s like on the road at least once so you have an idea of what it’s like and not base everything from the movies,  t.v., or what you may have heard. Being sympathetic and knowing that you aren’t the only one lonely and missing him helps.  I try to make his job as a husband easier when he comes home. I make sure the grass get’s cut, the light bulbs that are out get changed stuff like that.  Even though he wants to still do things around the house as a husband should, I know those weeks he has ran hard he doesn’t need the added stress of knowing there are things around the house that need to be done.  I have some that say, “You are good because I wouldn’t do any of the things you do nor would I trust him out there like that.”  I look at it this way, we have a partnership. Our relationship has always been about compromise and not limiting one another to stereotyped roles.  I also know he would do the same for me if my job required me to be away from home like that.  We have a lot of trust in our relationship so as far as cheating is concerned that’s not something either of us are worried about.

The life we have chosen isn’t easy, but then whose is.  This is our life and we love it.

EnJoy Your Day

Do you Have What it Takes?

Why I am successful and how you can be also:

1. I believe trust is important. I want to know the members of my organization and I want them to know and trust me. Which leads me to my #2.

2. I don’t chase multiple deals. You see them all the time, one week a guru is tossing you the “minutes old” deal and the next its something else. How on earth can anyone trust someone like that? He isn’t a leader, he is a numbers chaser. I am not and never have been a number chaser.

3. I am approachable.  I make myself available to my team members and their team as well.  You don’t get to any level in any business without those below, beside or above you. Make time for those that are hungry for the success as you are because in turn you will get to the top and bring them with you.

4. I am coachable.  You have to be willing to explore other options. Other means to an end.  You can’t have an “I know everything mindset”

5. I am 100% dedicated, loyal and plugged in to the system that is provided with my business.

6. I am consistent and persistent with my promotions. A steady flow of new customers and new reps is the result of my constant reminders. It is a fact that most need to hear something 7 times before they remember it and take action. It takes 21 days to develop a habit so the more you do something the easier it becomes.

7. I believe in the product and I believe in the company. Belief is a huge factor. One must believe in what they are promoting or eventually it will show and they will lose credibility if they themselves don’t lose interest first.

I realize more key factors could be added however, I wanted to share the basics as this will be the foundation to build upon. Once you get these key elements the rest will come and you can expound upon what I have mentioned.

Setting Goals

Do you plan in life for those things which you want to attain OR do you sit by and wish for them to happen?  So many people make this mistake and they don’t realize this……….. If you fail to plan you plan to fail!    Profound~~~I know.  Sit with that for just a moment.

Take steps to begin to plan out every aspect of your life.  Write down your goals and aspirations.  Keeping them in a place that you will see everyday.  Goal planning doesn’t have to be this long list of things hoped for you can start off with baby steps.  Make a list of small things and give yourself a deadline to finish them.  Nothing has to be set in stone. You can write in pencil if that makes you feel better.  Working towards your goals is success in and of itself.  If you get to your deadline and you haven’t accomplished what you wanted then just stretch out your deadline, but never, ever give up.  Setting goals lends an opportunity for you to plan to be successful in whatever it is you are reaching for.  You can do monthly goals or yearly goals it’s all up to you.

You want to keep your goals posted around you in eyes view to keep you on track of knowing that you have finally began to add value to your life in a way you haven’t before.  Every step you take is a step in the direction of your hearts desires.  The best advice to ensure success even in small steps is Put blinders on!  Don’t allow the negativity of those who haven’t gotten their life together to rain on your parade. LOL!  Remember- Misery loves company.   If you have a spouse of significant other and in some cases children include them in on your goal planing.   Make them aware of what you are trying to accomplish so they can help you be responsible for reaching them.  Team work makes the Dream work!

Starting this Month-December My monthly goal is to:

  • Expose as many folks to my business/product as possible.
  • Add a new Distributor or Customer a week.
  • Get at least 4 pre enrolles a week.
  • Market my product to my local gym and/or  health food store .

It’s just that simple to get started.  It’s up to me to put in the work towards making those goals a reality however,  If at the end of the month I don’t accomplish one or more I will simply stretch out my deadline.                                           Never, Ever giving up!

I hope this gives you some ideas on setting goals for yourself and why it’s important.  Goal setting doesn’t have to be about your career.  It could be as simple as setting  a goal to purchase a car that you would love to have.

Tamara Brown ~ “It’s not about when you start as long as you start”

Education is Key!

Are you simply looking to build a business on the backs of those that will follow you or are you interested in developing lasting relationships and build a team of those that trust and believe in your judgment and efforts to help them secure a successful financial future for them as well?

Your answer to that  question is key to knowing how far you will grow or if you will grow in any Network, Internet, or Home Based Business.  Your leadership and character are the driving force behind your success. Persons are more apt to gravitate towards those they feel comfortable with and can trust more so than the product or business you are promoting.  The business is just the icing on the cake so to speak.

Have you put yourself in a position to have people seek you out because of who you are as a person? Are people attracted to your energy? Are people inclined to come to you because they feel you are relatable?   Does your character waiver in times of adversity or in times of prosperity? Can you be relied upon to be consistent? More questions that will make the difference between earning a little or a lot in this Industry.

A Home Based Business of any kind is a Job…..Anything you invest your time and skill set to do and reap the rewards of financial benefits is classified as a Job!  The opportunity is that this is global & can be shared with the masses with minimum start up and overhead. Those that give little or a lot of effort still earn in this business. It’s all in the mindset you have when you work any business. Be it your own or for someone else. Treat it as such and you will reap greater rewards. 

Lot’s of people believe in multiple streams of online income but in order for you to be successful and hold your credibility of dependency for your team and those that are watching … you have to stay focused and committed to one business.  Rome wasn’t built in a day and I’m sure while building it they weren’t working on other projects at the same time. Doing so would have cost them man power & time.  This isn’t a challenge to see how well you can multi task it’s a challenge to see how well you are at being the best and most successful you can be with one REAL opportunity. Build ONE solid foundation with ONE company.  Your team will follow  you to the next business because they believe, trust, and know that you will remain focused on ONE agenda at a time, and not abandon them for the next new thing.

Think Long Term Residual Income Not Instant Passive Income!

Have a Business Mind and not a Mind of Greed and Your Business will flourish!

Here’s Hope

In that time of despair, that time of weakness, and that time of loneliness it should be the time in which you must fight the hardest to be strong. Fight the hardest to withstand those urges to give up.  It is in that moment that your faith is being tested for your ability to hold on long enough to give your testimony.

It’s in that dark hour that your future is determined by the decisions you make or don’t make. It’s in that moment that God is standing with you having given you the guidance and knowledge to see it through. Know that He intends for you to succeed but you must take action knowing that your faith will never fail you.

Satan’s main objective is to prove God a liar and have you turn away from Him in your darkest hour. God is a God of love, peace and mercy therefor the trials you go through are not punishments from God but a test of your faith, and patience. Knowing the sacrifice that Jesus made on your behalf and mine the question you should ask in your time of despair is “How strong am I?” not “Why me Lord?”

Even when things don’t go the way we think they should know that there is hope. Here is Hope>God.  Understand that there is a reason and a season for everything. God knows what will happen before it happens and his judgement is far greater than ours. It’s only when we insist upon doing things our way instead of God’s way that we impede on the design that was already laid out for us, but not to worry because God already knew we would do it before we did it. God already has a contingency plan in place.

The Bible is our guide for living. Our comfort in times of trouble.  Our way to gain strength when we are weak. Our rest when we are weary.  It teaches us to cope, to forgive, to pray, and to love.  It’s the tool of Hope.  The mere fact that God exist should give you Hope! The fact that he is  HOPE!

Don’t Knock It Till You’ve Tried It

Action always generates inspiration.  Inspiration seldom generates action.

Do you feel as if you are stuck in a rut? I ask what meaningful actions have you taken to rectify your own situation?  It’s not enough to just say I’ve prayed about it.

Are tired of  not having enough money at the end of your month?  If what you are already doing isn’t working  don’t Pre Judge.

The Network Marketing Industry /Stay at Home Businesses shouldn’t be frowned upon.  More Millionaires are created in this industry than an any other industry.

The MLM growth statistics are downright staggering.  Consider  these Statistics according to the Direct Sellers Association:

1. There are over 56 MILLION people in the world doing some type of business in the network marketing industry. That’s almost double the size of the population of Canada

2. There was over $100 billion in sales last year which is a staggering amount

3. The MLM industry in doing business in over 100 countries around the world. You can be sure that if there was a problem with the industry at least one of these countries would have figured it out by now and brought the whole thing down

4. The industry has grown by 90% in the last ten years. Name 5 other industries that have had that type of growth GLOBALLY. What’s the main reason for this growth…People are getting tired of “working for the man.” They want time freedom with their families…Quality AND Quantity. Basically the MLM industry is an awesome option for people to begin their business career with minimal risk.  The most exciting part of this. It’s only going to get better.

The Pillars of MLM Success:*Residual Income  *Leverage of Time and Money *Duplicability and Coachability

Those Pillars of MLM Success coupled with the Social Media World can make you an unstoppable force in this industry.
