Is Network Marketing Lucrative?

I remember hearing about network marketing and immediately thought “scams” where it was to good to be true. I held on to that for years. I recently began researching companies that came out with products that appeared to be good. I found many had a lot in common in there approach. I would like to share some of that information with you because when you are uneducated you can make costly mistakes or fail to see when a reputable company comes along.

Self-awareness means just that-you are aware of, and can focus on, yourself. You give top priority to the physical, energetic, emotional, mental, soul-level, and spiritual aspects of your being. Furthermore, you take responsibility for your own safety and growth.

To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.

Although the question concerning how to find the “perfect partner” is often raised, the answer lies in loving and respecting yourself-first. As you heal… Continue

Could You Be At Risk For Diabetes

Your body naturally gives you many messages. It also tries to alert you in trouble situations, such as symptoms of pre-diabetes. The development of type 2 diabetes is almost always preceded by pre-diabetes. Pre-diabetes is a condition where the body's blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not yet at the level to qualify for diabetes. If left untreated, pre-diabetes can cause long-term damage to the body, especially to the hear and ciculatory system. This is a serious medical… Continue

The Beauty of Strength

Economic indicators, economic bailouts, economic bad news. Everyday we get up now we hear more stories of how bad the economy is and how bad people are suffering - and they are. When I got up yesterday I heard from an old friend. Someone I had not spoken with in at least two years. Back in the day this sister had it going on...House in the suburbs and a summer home on Martha's Vineyard.

She was living the American dream.… Continue

How long do we keep trying to conform to the world's standard of beauty...while at the same time damaging our girls that can't fit into that standard and then turning around and criticizing or victimizing them when they act out, are promiscuous or do all kinds of things… Continue

Make Your Life Over - Tell A New Story!

When we see women like Coretta Scott King and Michelle Obama what do we really 'hear'. Well for one..we hear their stories. Most often in their own words. But we never hear the drama, the pain, the victim (and believe me both of these ladies had/have enough to bemoan). Coretta lost her husband and was left as a single mother. Michelle has to hear stories and worries about her husband as the first African American President.

But how do… Continue

Black Women Business Owners - Journeying Towards The Dream

At age 50, I am part of a fast growing movement in America - black women who are launching their own businesses.
