“WordPress is a publishing platform that makes it easy for anyone to publish online, and proudly powers millions of websites. It comes in two flavors: the fully hosted WordPress.com, and the self-hosted version available at WordPress.org.”

I recommend and use wordpress.org for my on-line business “Achieve Your Dreams” as I am able to create and maintain my own website with this version and add advertisements and links to my affiliate business partners. This is ideal for the Entrepreneur!

‘A Day in he Life’ is a unique look at just some of the adventures that Australian Author Michael E Thornley has experienced over the last five years.

During that time he has traveled from Australia to Bali, Dubai, Spain, Canada and the USA, the latter where he lived for a year.

We share many of the humorous outcomes as he ventures out into the unknown on his daily walks! Well that is the unknown suburban streets and parks of cities around the world. Yet only he could have an adventure in such a situation what with bowling maidens over; being serenaded by turkeys and falling into large holes and having to be pulled out by his feet!

Michael is also in tune with nature as we find him trekking through woods to the Gates of Terror; chasing skunks over wetlands in the moonlight and having visitations from white coyotes and shovel nose rays.

Yet he also shares with us his inner most thoughts and emotions that are felt in some of the more serious moments. Hence it truly is a ‘Diary of Humour and Emotions.’

Have you heard of Fiverr ?

There is nothing quite like Fiverr.com when it comes to outsourcing for your business. In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past 2 years, Fiverr.com is a website that is dedicated to US$5 jobs! People will do all sorts of different things for US$5, from making videos, promoting your website, or even collecting & sending you sea shells from their local beach lol.

You’d be surprised how much you can outsource on Fiverr for a measly US$5. If you’re already familiar with Fiverr.com then you know exactly what I’m talking about.

I have utilised the services of Fiverr on a number of occasions and found those that I have  dealt with efficient and trustworthy. Besides, the Fiverr system does not pay them unless you are happy with their service.

However, it also gave me an idea that some of you out there are looking for additional work so why not list your services on there! People are looking for many different types of services so ask yourself….. what are you best at? And US$5-00 is only a starting point. You must offer a basic service for that amount but then you can promote the other services that you do for a higher cost.

Now i want you to know that whilst I am an Entrepreneur, I am simply sharing this with you as my trusted subscribers. I do NOT receive any form of financial benefit form Fiverr.com for promoting them .

Just some FREE & FRIENDLY advice 🙂

The 10 Questions You Absolutely Must Ask Before Choosing a Home-Based Business

Let me tell you a story about the word YES

Let me tell you a story about the word YES

“A friend of mine is finishing off her Yoga Teacher Training Diploma, and the other day she had the decision whether to say YES or NO to a spotlight moment.

While she has done yoga for years, she has never professionally taught it. Needless to say it’s pretty daunting to teach people something where they may get injured – and she has never had to stand in front of people to teach anything before.

Oh, and did I mention, she is over 60 years old, and learning with a bunch of young things. Amazing!

So the other day she went to a yoga class and the teacher didn’t turn up. Someone who knew she was finishing off her Diploma said: “Kathryn, you should teach the class.”

These are the spotlight moments I talk about all of the time. You can say yes or you can say no. 

So imagine her situation. She has very little experience in teaching yoga, and only practiced teaching with a small group of friends. Here were 18 people staring at her, waiting for her answer.

She had done no prep, so if she said yes, she would have to think on her feet. If she screwed up it would impact her confidence and how the people in the class thought about her.

 

What do you think her answer was, yes or no?

Catriona Pollard 

When she recounted the story to me she said my TEDx talk about “Being open to yes” flashed in front of her eyes. Even though I wasn’t there, I was willing her on. She thought – I’m going to say YES!

 

Filled with trepidation, a bit of anxiety, and huge amount of bravery, she walked to the front of the class and taught her first yoga class. And when it finished, she received a round of applause with people asking her to run more classes.

If she hadn’t said yes, she would still not know her capability as a yoga teacher or have the opportunity to share her beautiful energy with the class.

 In my experience saying that first yes is like letting the genie out of the bottle. It can lead to many yeses that are full of magic and wonder.

 Yes can open up opportunities you never even dreamed of. So I’ll leave you with a question. What are you going to say yes to today?

Here’s to seeing you in the spotlight.

Something Inspiring!


Inspiration Something inspiring

I have thought long and hard about something inspiring to share with you today. Some days it flows; some days it ebbs and other days it ebbs and flows 🙂 Surely out of my interactions today something inspiring would manifest from the positive vibes that have abounded.

Certainly something ‘inspiring’ was found in all these events yet nothing stood out as a particular grand something inspiring moment more a collective of inspiration.Yet when I thought I had lost the something inspiring moment, the proverbial something ‘inspiring’ light came on. It was clear to me what the something-inspiring’ something was!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And it was quite simple and certainly inspired something in me…..the message was that you should always do something that inspires others, that is the reward and that is something inspiring in itself 😉

Bacon -wrapped tacos

The other day I saw a cutesy little video, filmed in time-lapse style speed, showing how to make hard-shell tacos without the hard shell.

Instead, the shell was made of…wait for it…fried bacon.

I know, right? ……..  Bacon-wrapped tacos.

Now, I love me a few strips of (uncured) bacon from time to time. And tacos? Don’t even get me started (especially when they are made with organic, grass-fed beef…yummy).

But, let’s be honest…nobody needs bacon-wrapped tacos. Not even me. (Especially not me).

The way I see it, you are only detracting from the deliciousness of each already-awesome treat. It seems to me that this meal would become “white noise” to the palate.

Too much, sometimes, is too much.

And that’s just about how most people approach business and life.

They try to pile on one unnecessary thing after another on their journey to “success”:
– “I just need one more webinar…”
– “I just need to download that new app…”
– “If I just get that book/course/audio/PDF, or attend that event, I’ll finally make it!”

…said no successful person ever.

“Uh, JT…YOU sell books/courses/audios/PDFs, dude! Don’t be a hypocrite…”

Great point. Except my position is never to claim my stuff is the magic bullet. And I would never submit that you need any of it.

Its about being strategic. Being intentional. Being on point and on purpose. Being focused.

Instead wrapping your life’s work in the metaphorical fried-bacon shell (I know…my mouth is watering too…), consider the better option of streamlining your business and life.

Take a more, dare I say, ‘minimalist’ approach to business.

I talk about that and more on this week’s episode of The High-Altitude Mentorship Show. Check it out:
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/jtdebolt/2016/02/03/streamlining-success-a-minimalist-approach-to-entrepreneurship

Collecting clutter, squandering time and searching for more and more ‘stuff’ to fill the void in our lives is the opposite of a high-performance strategy.

The 4 things I share today, however, are. So if you must pile a little more on your plate, at least go for the gourmet stuff I share on today’s episode.

Listen…and if you insist on doing the whole bacon-wrapped taco thing, at least bring the guac.

Fly High. Fly Fast. Fly Far.

Welcome Yourself in Your Heart

Welcome Yourself in Your Heart

‘Loving yourself does not mean being self-absorbed or narcissistic, or disregarding others. Rather it means welcoming yourself as the most honored guest in your own heart, a guest worthy of respect, a lovable companion.’ ~ Margo Anand

‘Aspire to Inspire before you Expire’

That feeling you get when a cop starts to follow you

I am sharing an Email he sent me which is relevant to us all 🙂

‘Aspire to Inspire before you Expire’

“Last summer on a family road trip I saw a guy pulled over on the side of the road in a late model Hyundai. It was the typical scene:

The cop, with his lights flashing and hand on holster, was leaning on the roof of the car as the poor guy fumbled for his driver’s license and whatever else the cop asked him for.

The moment barely registered in my sleepy mind before I noticed that a different cop was now following me. I had been getting drowsy from a long drive and was no doubt weaving like a guy with nine beers in him.

What happened next is probably something you’ve experienced once or twice in your life.

Instantly wide awake, I scanned my instruments and saw that my speed was about two ticks over the speed limit; well within legal range. I felt my foot lighten and the engine give in just a bit.

My thoughts went from “License is up to date, registration is good, insurance is paid in full…” to “What’s to worry about? to “WHAT’S THE DEAL?!?!”

Then came the lights.. Not the cop’s headlights, or the flashing red and blue overheads… but all of them.

Instantly my brain lit up and flooded my bloodstream with adrenaline…just as the cop pulled away and raced off to whatever crisis she’d been dispatched to.

Damn…that was close. And I was left feeling a mixture of relief, annoyance and exhaustion as my adrenaline dissipated. (And maybe a hint of “amused”…)

Ever experienced that?

Almost everyone has, and not just while sitting behind the wheel of an automobile.

Sometimes, we see evidence of someone going through a tough time; could be a broken relationship, a career rut, a financial flatline or a stagnating business. We slow down and observe from the relative safety of our own “driver’s seat”…until the cop pulls in behind us.

We look down at our metaphorical speedometer and see that we’ve been racing along mindlessly and fallen behind on our goals.

We realize our driver’s license of life has expired due to our own negligence and inattentiveness.

And due to our focus on the “small” stuff (bills, nagging neighbors, bickering family members, increasing waistlines…) we start to drift out of the lane that is supposed to take us to our dream, to our mission.

We are literally asleep at the wheel of our business and life. And now that cop called REALITY is pulling us over. Or worse; we never wake up, and drive off into the oblivion of a mediocre life.

You can either fight through it on your own, mask the sleepiness with the “caffeine” of another escapism TV program or social media binge…

…Or you can wake up. For good!”

Fly High. Fly Fast. Fly Far.
