Why I quit Chat To Text

Today is a bit of a sad day.

I quit Chat To Text after being in it for a year.

There were changes made to the commission structure that I could not agree with nor did I feel that it would be marketable with the new commission structure.

It is a shame because I put many hours into it.

With every trial though there is a lesson and I've learned a few from here, so I can thank CTT for that.

1. Think VERY HARD before joining a new start up in Network Marketing. I know all new start up's are going to disagree with me on that and of course there are people that do get in at the start and it works out. But they are far and in-between. Safer to join a company that has at min. 5 years stable track record.

2. Investigate the founders before joining a any Network Marketing Co.
If they don't have a background in Network Marketing itself then don't join. There will be too many trial and errors during the ride to get it right before they discover what really works and does not work. In the mean time you suffer as a rep. with all the growing pains.

3. If there are no terms and conditions in writing, RUN! This means they can change things on the whim and not be accountable to anyone. After all if they don't have it in writing, it's not legally binding.

In retrospect, I loved the Chat to Text application. It was great in how it worked. Getting a text message on my cell phone when someone had a question about my blog here, or on one of the social sites I have was a great idea! It was unique and useful for any small business owner that had a website online. This is what attracted me to Chat to Text in the first place. Why not stay as a customer then?
Because I cannot condone their actions on the business end by paying them money for their application.

So, learning these lessons has taught me a great deal about Network Marketing Companies in general, so with that; I have to say it was worth it!

Thank you and wishing you more Wealth and Riches in your life!

"Every failure is a lesson well-learned, every success is a battle well- fought." The yardstick of success is not achievements, but how well we learned our lessons, and how we, in turn, allowed ourselves to touch lives of others, that they, too, might make it. What am I for, if I'm not for my Maker and others?"The virtue of friendship isn't in finding a perfect friend, but loving the friend perfectly. True friendship doesn't have a happy simply doesn't end."

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs.

But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

"Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing." ~Denis Waitley~

"Men succeed when they realize that their failures are the preparation for their victories."~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

"I never see failure as failure, but only as the game I must play to win." -- Tom Hopkins

"Don’t let your victories go to your head, or your failures go to your heart."

"When the archer misses the mark, he turns and looks for the fault within himself. Failure to hit the bull's eye is never the fault of the target. To improve your aim - improve yourself."Gilbert Arland Writer

"Lack of will power has caused more failure than lack of intelligence or ability."

"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up." -- Thomas Edison

"You're on the road to success when you realize that failure is only a detour."

Why so many quotes of failure? Because we all need to know what failure really is and is not. Now that you know, quit beating yourself up and go and be what you want to be, do what you want to do; and have what you want to have.

Wishing you more Wealth and Riches in your life.

The Job Scheme

Job Scheme- You work hard to pay your bills, a roof over your head, food on the table, a car in the driveway. Year after year you do this barely making enough to continue having a roof over your head, food on the table & a car in the driveway.

Problem is you notice that the owner and maybe a select few at the top has more than enough money, but for some reason you do not...You have entered "The Job Scheme".

The good news is, when you are old enough to retire, you'll have your 401k money income and social security income to barely make enough to have a roof over your head, food on the table, and a car in the driveway until you die...hopefully!

A true form legal Pyramid where the people at the very top get RICH and as it trickles down, there is less and less money; the bottom being where the MOST of the people are, doing the daily things a business needs to survive.

Oh I suppose nature is like this too. The bee colony for example. You have the Queen bee, and then the workers. The queen gives the orders and makes sure there will be future generations (of workers and one queen to take her place later when she's too old to multiply). The workers go out and find the pollen, return to make the hive and honey to feed the babies, and the cycle goes on and on.

Or the Lions. The female lions do all the hunting while the male KING lion lazes around in the sun. She brings home the bacon so to speak, and he grabs some and eats. He does have a function of being intimidating and protecting any unwanted lions from entering in the fold, but over all it's the females doing all the work.

Thank God though, we are more than animals. We actually are given choice.
That means we even have a choice to break out of "The Job Scheme" and become the "Queen" or "King". And that my friends is the BEST thing about Network Marketing. Each person is the owner of his own business, which co-working as a team of other owners to create lots of money for EVERYONE that actually puts in the effort. Those that do not, end up falling away and staying in The Job Scheme. And those that do stay, are those that have the CHOICE of exiting the Job Scheme and becoming full time with other networkers that have done it before them.

Does it happen overnight? Only people that I've known that don't have jobs overnight are people who were either fired or won the lottery. The others worked their way on out. Great Plan! Easy? No, workable? Yes.

More Wealth and Riches in your life!

Ningxia Wolfberry, the most Powerful Antioxidant in the World

The Ningxia wolfberry, a small red medicinal berry has been gaining attention as a functional superfood and antioxidant powerhouse since it hit the market in 2000.

Native to Ningxia Hui, China, wolfberry or Lycium barbarum L has long been regarded as a national treasure and has been used by Olympic coaches as their "secret weapon" to achieve gold medal results. It is now being studied world wide for its health benefits.

What's behind Aging and Illness?

To understand how the Ningxia wolfberry help combat accelerated aging and illness, you have to understand what causes it.

Have you ever noticed that an older person smells different than a younger person? It is not unreasonable to compare aging with going rancid from the inside out as our fats go stale and proteins become caramelized.
The buildup of oxidized fats and malformed proteins in the body builds up an aroma which no deodorant can eradicate.

Free radicals is what causes the buildup of rancid fats and denatured proteins within us.

You could say a good part of aging is the result of continuous free radicals attacking the cells of the body. As rancid fats and denatured proteins build up in our tissues, our cells become overwhelmed and start to self-destruct.

What happens to cells that suffer a daily onslaught of free radical attacks?
*They die off
* They mutate and become harful cells that can be linked to cancer, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, Parkinson's disease, and many other degenerative diseases of aging. Blunting free-radical damage can bring about major improvements to health, especially as people grow older.

Antioxidants are the heroes that neutralize these molecular bad guys. They help reduce inflammation, keep arteries flexible, and preserve the genetic material of each cell. While the human body produces some antioxidants naturally, others must be replenished through food sources.

Top Antioxidant Foods
ORAC Scores
Antioxidants are visible to the eye as pigments in the color of plants. Some antioxidants have medicinal value. Among the numerous benefits of berries is ellagic acid found in the wolfberry. Research has shown that ellagic acid increases phase II liver enzyme activity, lending critical support to the liver's detox mechanisms.

The ORAC score is a scientific standard that determines which foods or substances have significant antioxidant value. The higher the score, the greater the substance's power as an antioxidant. Of all major foods on the planet, the Ningxia wolfberry delivers the most antioxidants.

NingXia wolfberry (dried)- 303
Chinese wolfberry - 202
Acai - 184
Black Raspberry - 164
Pomegranate - 105
Prune - 57

Can the Wolfberry Enhance Immunity?
The immune system in the intestines and the rest of the body is composed of polysaccharides (glycoproteins). Its components are proteins that need the correct sugars to function properly. This is one of the reasons that refined sugars depress the immune system. Ningxia wolfberry provides the right sugars, thus enhancing the immune system.

* In a 1988 report published by the State Scientific and Technological Commission of China, scientists reported that the immune-enhancing effect of wolfberries showed a 700 point increase in white blood cell counts, a 10% increase in lymphocyte transformation rates, and a 75% increase in immunoglobin A (a decline is associated with aging).

The Wisdom of Whole Foods
Natural Polyphenols Outperform Vitamins
Recent studies raise questions about how effective Vitamin C, E, and beta carotene really are. Why? Supplements don't provide the protection seen in diets rich in fruits and vegetables. The real benefit appears to be when you get these antioxidants from food based sources, such as fruits and vegetables.

The fruits richest in antioxidants, such as wolfberries, raspberries, blueberries, and pomegranates may represent one of the most important natural therapies to slow the onset of degenerative diseases.

Who Can Drink Ningxia Wolfberry Juice?
Anyone with a digestive system, including pets. There have been no known side effects to Ningxia wolfberry, including to children. The latter should not be exposed to any whole food before six months of age. After that, smaller amounts compared to an adult are recommended until they appear to tolerate higher portions.

Serving portions may vary from 1/2 ounce to 30 ounces per day.

Start with an ounce per day of Ningxia Red juice. If positive results are seen, increase the portion gradually until improvement in the condition is observed.

There is no best time to drink Ningxia Red. Do it when it fits your schedule. Some people notice such an increase in energy that they avoid it before bedtime. It is probably best on an empty stomach, since you do not want to dilute your stomach acid, which is vital for digestion and for healthy flora.

Liver issues? Look to Ningxia Red & Juva Flex

Today, instead of providing all the scientific facts (and there are plenty. If you want to know scientific facts about Ningxia Wolfberry, I'd recommend purchasing the book: Ningxia Wolfberry: the Ultimate Superfood by Gary oung MN, Ronald Lawrence MD, PhD, Marc Schreuder)of the ability of Ningxia Red and Juva Flex to make a difference in people's lives that have liver issues I'm going to provide instead actual Testimonials:

Testimonial: That Wolfberry juice

One of my clients literally tracked me down for another bottle of that delicious Wolfberry Juice at the health fair this weekend.

This man is 75, has been a drinker all of his adult life and this is his choice. One could imagine the shape of his liver and expresses the typical symptoms and discomforts that one might expect. I had pointed to the wolfberry juice because he had been sick with a persistent respiratory infection, but also because of its benefits for the liver. He had agreed to try the first bottle somewhat skeptically, and I hadn’t heard from him since, so thought nothing of it. But as the end of that bottle drew near, he was pretty determined to get more of that 'kickapoo juice' and said simply that it was 'making him feel better.'


Recovered from liver failure & cardiac arrest

Dear Friends,

I've decided to start by sharing a little bit about my story. My hope is that others might experience the same incredible healing I now appreciate. Please share this information with others.

The following is a version of a letter I sent to Gary & Mary Young, founders of Young Living, after a life changing experience I feel I had as a result of using their products.

Dear Gary & Mary,

I want to extend a heart-filled thanks to both of you, for your hard work and dedication, as well as to all others who make Young Living possible. I feel very strongly that because of God's amazing grace and your efforts, which have resulted in the product line you offer, I am literally alive today to share the following with you.

In a nutshell, I was hospitalized on Monday, March 17, 2008. I experienced liver failure and cardiac arrest, which landed me in intensive care. On Wednesday, March 19th my liver enzyme levels were the following: the ALT was 5907 & the AST was at 3116. My INR level was also at 2.57. As I'm sure you know, the normal liver enzyme level range is between 0 & 50, and the normal INR range is 0.86 & 1.14. I was transferred to another hospital and put under the care of a liver transplant team. The doctors did not expect me to recover without a liver transplant.

On Tuesday, I had called my sister, Brenda, and the rest of my family. Brenda, bless her soul, brought me 4 bottles of NingXia Red, Young Living personal care products and rubbed oils on my feet for hours at a time. Upon her oils treatments and the drinking of NingXia Red (a bottle a day), my enzyme levels started dropping dramatically. By Saturday, March 22nd, 1 day before Easter and 3 days before my 34th birthday, I was sent home. My enzyme levels were still around 2500, but the doctors said they had done all they could and hopped that my numbers would continue to decline. I was advised to follow up with my primary care physician weekly.

By April 25th, 2008, approximately 1 month later, my liver enzyme levels were back to normal (ALT 33 & AST 36)!! My INR levels, and everything else that was off, also went back to normal.

Some doctors said that they had never seen anything like it, that I had experienced a miracle. It was also stated that long-term permanent damage is not anticipated. My healing experience IS a miracle, a GIFT from God, but I also acknowledge and know that the products you have made possible are a HUGE part of the equation and reason for my miraculous healing.

I am now, still, drinking NingXia Red daily, taking JuvaTone, using Juva Flex or Juva Cleanse and other Young Living products to keep my health on the right track. And now, more than ever, I am really excited about telling people about the products you offer, with the hope that they too will have the opportunity to experience the same miraculous healing!

Thank you again for your work and for all the love and support provided through the opportunity of being part of the Young Living Family.

May God continue to bless you and your family, much love and appreciation,

I was diagnosed with hepato-pulmonary syndrome. I was on oxygen 24/7! (My lungs were being affected because of cirrhosis of my liver) I spoke with the only known specialist worldwide for this condition at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. He told me I would be on oxygen for the rest of my life. I started cleansing my liver and putting Juva Flex directly on my liver and my liver foot reflexology point. Within two weeks I was off the oxygen! This was Jan. '05 and I am still great! I don't use the oil every day anymore but I still use it for back-up...just in case. The oils work sooo well. I thank The Lord & Gary Young for this wonderful oil and Young Living!!

Ningxia Red for Fibromyalgia

Author: Brent Gast

Location: Bemidji, MN, United States

Posted: 2005-10-05

My mother-in-law had been suffering with Fibromyalgia for some time and was slowly getting worse. She is a nurse in an O.R. department and works long hours, up at 4:30a.m. and to bed around 9:30 p.m. For pain she was on Tramadal HCL two to four times per day, she took 600mg of Ibuprophin 4 times a day and was taking a muscle relaxer Orphenadrine Citrate ER twice a day as needed. (In the evening). She was unable to sleep in her bed any more and still couldn't sleep all the night through in her recliner.

My wife Sara and I had just joined Young Living and had our new Essential Oils Desk Reference and When my mother-in-law came over she wanted to know what it said about Fibromyalgia. On page 336 it says 'Fibromyalgia is an acid condition in which the liver is Toxic.' On page 463 in the section on Ningxia Wolfberry research it says it 'protects liver function'.

So we thought if she only tries one thing it may be a good choice to try Ningxia Red. So she ordered a bottle 'to help us out'. She started drinking 2 Tbs each morning, for about two weeks then she felt kind of better so she figured she would just quit drinking it. Within a couple days she noticed the pain returning and thought 'maybe it was working' and started her two Tbs per morning again and within one more week of starting back up she was off ALL the meds even Ibuprophen. She sleeps through the night in bed. She tells us she feels energetic and pain free, and will not go with out it again. So by trying one bottle she knows it helps her to get through her day and feels like doing things in the evening, even after a long day at work.

I have seen the difference in her, it's almost like two different people. If someone you know suffers from Fibromyalgia it is worth mentioning.

Liver cancer is history

Author: Beverly Carter

An old friend has been fighting breast cancer for 16 years and it had moved into her liver. The doctor's tried everything and recommended her for hospice.

I made a Liver Cancer blend of 30 drops frankincense, 20 drops lavender, 10 drops tsuga, 10 drops ledum and 4 Tablespoons of castor oil. These were supposed to be applied directly over the liver but since she was unconscious and attached to a lot of tubing, I got her husbands approval and I simply applied them to her feet - praying over the oils and commanding them to do the work in her body that God created them to do and calling down supernatural healing from Heaven on her behalf.

That night, the nurses said she slept more peacefully than any night she had been in the hospital. The next day, however, the doctor's had further bad news. They told the family that the cancer had moved to her brain and was metastasizing and that it was attacking the area that created speech, so basically she would never be able to talk to her family again and she would only survive 24hrs - 10 days tops.

I simply took all of that news and filed it in my 'whatever' bin and anointed her again on her feet with the blend I had put together. Her family began calling it her daily spa treatment. But I knew it was more powerful than that and God knew even more - in fact He had other plans all together. On the third day, she was awake and answering questions by nodding. I did her 'spa treatment' and prayed over her.

On the fourth day she was talking - answering simple 'yes' and 'no' but TALKING - doctors were baffled - I was not. I knew each day that something else WONDERFUL was going to happen. On the fifth day, she was fully talking, laughing and joking with the nurses and teasing her brother. She was now requesting 'spa treatments'. She also began to have bowel movements - several - this even though she had been on only IV's for 3-4 weeks! I believe her body was cleansing and getting rid of the cancer! PRAISE THE LORD!!

On the sixth day, they announced she was strong enough and they transferred her to a hospice near her home. The doctors still expected her to die. They kept saying that this was a temporary recovery before the end - God bless 'em.

In case some of you are unaware, hospice is the place where they send patients to die. It is terminal care to make them comfortable when medical science has done all they know to do and can't do anymore. It is extremely depressing and no one leaves hospice except to go into eternity. No one, that is, except someone that God has supernaturally healed. That is right, she was in hospice about a week and they told her to go home - they just couldn't understand why someone eating regular food and showering on their own needed hospice!

Wishing you more Wealth and Riches in your health and every area of your life!

NingXia Wolfberry Reduces Cholesterol

The NingXia Wolfberry (A berry grown in China in the providence of NingXia)has been proven to reduce cholesterol.

For hundreds of years, the Ningxia wolfberry has been used in traditional medicinal tonics to remove fat from the blood, lower cholesterol levels, and cut inflammation.

According to the Book NingXia Wolfberry: the Ultimate Superfood a 1988 report by the State Scientific and Technological Commission of China, reported on a clinical trial of 50 people aged 64-80 who were given 50 grams of wolfberries for 10 days. At the end of the sutdy, the lipid peroxide levels in their blood dropped by 65%.

Also a 2001 Chinese Academy of Sciences study conducted at the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry found that polysaccharides from Ningxia wolfberry dramatically inhibited the oxidation of harmful low density (LDL) cholesterol. High levels of oxidized cholesterol are more strongly linked with coronary heart disease than high blood fat levels.

Reducing Cholesterol by drinking an organic juice in my opinion is a whole lot better than taking medication that has potential side effects.

I'd highly recommend taking NingXia Red drink on a daily bases for your over all health and well being.
