This is so cool only today I checked out the Facebook groups and I’ve noticed many people aren’t using the Facebook likes, comments, follow, post.

Many people are creating blogs and sharing in different groups which is call syndication.

Now I received this e-mail from about Facebook likes. This was just Karma to me. To see that it crossed my mind earlier on and now here comes a comic post about it. This is why I choose to add this post to my blog. 🙂


Have you ever experience people who join your business, super pumped up, just got their first signup and they couldn’t be more EXCITED!

They follow the training instructions, join social media sites did everything that’s necessary and all of a sudden their upline quits because it didn’t work for them, or some other reasons and they decides to quit too?

…It actually happens a lot in this industry. I attribute it to one thing! They base all their actions off EMOTION!

…If these people were really serious about owning a business and knew why they got into the business, they wouldn’t quit within such a short time.

Take a look at Mike Hobbs video.

…It explains how to overcome this emotional roller coaster and why a true professional would never get caught up in this mindset!

I’m not saying it’s wrong to quit. If you are in a business for a reasonable time and you have not seen success, this is the time for you to improve your mindset and try to get some help by connecting with others who are in the business at a higher level, try to follow the training, and probably find a mentor to help you.

If you tried your best to fix the problem and still sees no improvement then I suggest it’s time to move on, cause the business is probably not the right one for you.

Unemployed, Underemployed? Social Networking Can Help

unemployed, underemployed

“Unemployed, Underemployed? Social Networking Can Help”

Most people would agree that having a job is better than not having a job in today’s economy. But therein lies the problem — you do the job because you have to, not because you want to. Job seekers not only face a selective job market with high unemployment, but with high underemployment.

Underemployment, despite its advantages over unemployment, is an issue not to be overlooked.

What is Underemployed?

It includes people working part-time who would like full-time employment, and people working at lower-level jobs than what they are qualified for, or earning less than they should be, due to the lack of available jobs. According to Gallup data, 18.1% of U.S. adults in the workforce are underemployed, while one in three young adults are underemployed (and twice as likely as older adults to be so).

The disadvantages of underemployment aren’t too different from being unemployed.

People seem to lose motivation in their career path and are set back from advancing, potentially for a few years. An even bigger and distinct disadvantage is not having the time to look for employment because of current job obligations. The recession produced layoffs and a selective job market, leaving many qualified professionals settling for jobs that don’t utilize hard skills and their degree at large. Those baristas with MBAs, those waiters with biochemistry degrees, and those receptionists who went to nursing school are just as unable to find and land the job that’s a fit for them.

The underemployed have a different set of challenges — they are more set on building a career with relevant positions, but also need to find these positions without much digging. Fortunately, social networks, such asFacebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, make the job search much more direct and accessible. Below, you’ll find three ways to optimize your social networking if you’re one of the many underemployed.

Target Companies

The underemployed aren’t just looking for another position, they are looking for careers.

Careers are built by companies, not just one job. Companies related to your degree and career interests will take people with common backgrounds and place them into roles that are challenging, and they’ll advance upward.

Make a list of target companies that offer roles on your projected career path. Follow them on Twitter and LinkedIn, and “like” their Facebook pages. Also look for “insiders,” or current employees, on social media to connect with. Your best bet is to reach out to someone at, or just above, your career level with a similar professional experience and background, and ask a few questions related to the job search and that person’s career.

Don’t simply ask for a job, but see if they can provide insight into the job market in your area, or advice on how they advanced their career, or even if they can connect you with relevant contacts within the company. Do this periodically (set a time about once a week) so that you can start finding better leads to jobs you want and can see yourself enjoying. Even if you’re offered entry-level work, despite ten years in the field or a master’s degree, consider what you can do to advance in the position, or better yet, ways you can meet people in the field more easily if you get your foot in the door.

Target Connections



In line with the tactic of reaching out to insiders, consider tapping into your own extended network. Your co-workers, friends, family and colleagues all serve as connections to jobs within their own networks. Remember that connections produce direct opportunities to jobs, whether it’s by a warm lead or through referrals.

When using your social network, be transparent about your job search progress and what you’re looking for through status updates, tweets or your bio. Don’t worry about coming off as desperate, unless you’re literally begging for someone to help you. Just simply state your current situation and what the next best (but relevant) situation you’re looking to gain. For example, “Emerging public relations practitioner looking for opportunities in non-profits and government agencies.” It’ll give everyone who is willing to help a better idea of what you’re fit for when they come across an employment opportunity.

Go in a New Direction

After being unemployed and then underemployed, some may feel their career path is just not working out for them. It may be saturated, or the person might not be in the right area with enough jobs, yet be unable to relocate. For some, changing fields is a last resort. For others, it can be a rewarding way to build a stable career path.

Social networking can ease this transition smoothly. First, meeting professionals in your new career path is easier than ever. You can find them usually occupying industry-related spaces, like Twitter chats or groups on LinkedIn and Facebook. Ask questions, participate in discussion and absorb all the advice you’re given. Additionally, these social networks are vast in sharing specific career resources — conferences, webinars, ebooks — anything and everything to craft your hard skills for your new career. Use social media to engage with your connections, and you’ll be able to learn what you need to do to lessen the impact of your minimal work experience.

Being unemployed or underemployed isn’t fun. It’s time consuming and frustrating, to say the least. But, making the most of the connections you have and fully utilizing your social networks can help you determine what direction you need to go in, and how to get yourself where you want to be.

It’s sad how so many people are unemployed and underemployed. They struggle to get the right paying job which isn’t easy to find anymore, especially if it’s an offline job.

It sometimes makes you wonder if getting a degree really counts.

There are so many people who are making lots of online income, some of them are college drop outs, some have their associates, bachelors, masters, doctorate degree and couldn’t get the right typed of job they studied for. NOW! Most of them start a career doing network marketing, internet marketing, affiliate online business, work at home business and they market their business through social media marketing.

Social networking is a great way to land you a job, you’ll learn how to engage with others it’s the right platform where you’ll get to meet others. A few social networking sites for jobs are Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, here you’ll find lots of professionals adding job openings to their groups and profile.

Homeless Man Uses Flip Cam, YouTube to Spread Awareness

“Homeless Man Uses Flip Cam, YouTube to Spread Awareness

A homeless man in San Francisco is using technology to give the world a new perspective on homelessness. This homeless man name is Henry Moses Thirkield, affectionately known as Mo, and he’s been using a Flip Cam to document his day-to-day activities and his interviews with other homeless men and women.

How Mo the Homeless Man Got Help!

Mo doesn’t have access to a computer or a cellphone, so he’s unable to post videos online himself. His friend Ryan Hupfer, who works at a Silicon Valley startup, gave Mo the Flip Cam and set up the YouTube channel, HomelessMo.

“We [met when we] ran into each other in the San Francisco Caltrain station when I was coming back home from work one day,” Hupfer told Mashable. “He asked for money and cigarettes, but I was getting ready to grab a Subway sandwich, so I offered him something to eat instead.”

The two kept running into each other, and they became friends thereafter. Hupfer has given friends cameras in the past to share their stories, and he figured doing the same for Mo would yield the same result — almost allowing viewers to put themselves in his shoes.

Wonder How The Homeless Man Mo Got His Content Distributed?

“He creates the content and I edit and distribute, and it’s really worked out well so far,” Hupfer said. “I try my best to tell his story, and if anyone emails, I say that I’m posting on his behalf. One of these days I’ll get him on [the Internet], but that’s going to take some time.”

SEE ALSO: Homeless People Start Tweeting in New Awareness Initiative Using the Flip Cam, Mo is able to give the rest of the world an idea of what it’s like to live on the streets of San Francisco. In a video posted on Monday, Mo gave another homeless man a snippet of his background:

“I’ve been homeless for almost four years now,” Mo says in the video, behind the camera. “I’ve slept under the bridge at Fourth and King over here, and I had to learn how to survive out here because I worked all my life. I didn’t know what it was [like] sleeping next to someone you don’t know, or ‘sleeping with the rats,’ as we call it.”

Hupfer says Mo is in his late 50s and is originally from Chicago. He used to sell drugs in San Francisco before he was imprisoned for selling a pill to an undercover police officer. He’s been homeless ever since he was released.

You can now learn about Mo’s stories on platforms other than YouTube. Hupfer set up a Facebook page for Mo and a WePay campaign for anyone who wants to donate money.

On Facebook, Hupfer shares Mo’s thoughts and status updates. One post from Sunday reads, “I got a gun pulled on me tonight … for $16. A good reminder that I’m still on the streets, but I know with all of your help it’s only going to get better. I don’t think I could do it without all of you pulling for me.”

Hupfer has been been using MailChimp to send updates to everyone who has given money to Mo via WePay, and in order to maintain transparency and openness, he created a Google doc for all of the donors that shows how much money Mo has raised, how much he has left and what he’s spending it on.

“We’ve raised close to $1,500 right now, which isn’t a lot, but that’s enough to keep Mo fed and off the streets for almost three months,” Hupfer said.

Mo told Mashable through Hupfer that his main goals are to get off of parole, get a job and eventually be able to give back to others who are in similar situations and support programs that already do. He also mentioned speaking to younger people about his story and doing his best to keep people from getting into his situation in the first place.

As far as what he wants the world to learn, he said, “That no matter who the homeless person is, they’re all human beings, not just some animals that should be ignored and they should never be treated that way. Get to know a homeless person’s story and you’ll start to realize that they’re not that different from anyone else.”

Original Re-Post

I choose this article because it relates to David Wood & Dave Sharpe homeless story.

This article is an interesting story. It would be nice to show this homeless man how he could improve his lifestyle. How this once homeless ‘van man’ and ex-construction worker discovered this lucrative solution to the complicated online marketing world.

How they launched their Empower Network business a few months ago and have became the big BUZZ online, on social media sites with thousands of people joining their business and making 100% Commissions from working their business.

Mosses also known as Mo has been a homeless man for 4 years.
Mo interviews Homeless Man Andrew who has been homeless for a few weeks.

Online Home Business Information

Information On How to Make Money In Your Online Home Business

How to make money in your online home business, first you’ll need to create a solid plan, that should consist of marketing strategies, SEO traffic strategies, and a strategy to earn more profits from your existing customers. Once you build a solid plan like this, you’ll stand a better chance of seeing success with your online home business.

Lesson-1 On Online Home Business Information

Here are some of the things in today’s lesson you can use to improve your sales and profits easily without you having too much to do. Now you won’t make overnight income – but if you continue to keep doing them, you’ll find that your online marketing efforts are there for the taking.

Before I give you the tips for online home business success, you should know that they only work if you put the time and effort into it. Don’t just sit on your Behind and hope that maybe someday you’ll get around to it. Do it NOW! While you still have the chance…

Here’s the first tip for having success with your online home business marketing efforts:

1) Know Your Niche First Then Supply The Product.

Many people do this all wrong. Some people may say! “They want to sell jewelry online”, or “They want to sell arts & crafts online”, or “They want to sell apparel online”. All of these ideas are ideas that get lost when the person behind each scenario realizes that there are too many people online selling the same product and you have to compete with other marketers online to get exposure for your business, to be listed on Google SEO first page, to make sure you get your products sold.







Because of this, it’s important that you start off by finding your niche first, and then go and find a solution for it. Never find or create the product first. Sure the product was created for a reason, but if you go after the niche first, you will see that there are all kinds of profitable products that you can sell whether you like the product or not. Personally, you don’t have to sell product that you like, sometimes you’ll like the product and it may not sell. You could sell product that you don’t know much about. The important thing is the product is selling. I wouldn’t care and would just continue to market to people over and over again.

Here’s the next tip for having online business success:

2) Your WHY?

Why should anyone buy from you instead of someone else? What is so special about you that people will choose you over another rival competitor? This is something that you need to think about and come up with a very good answer. If you don’t have a good answer for this question, then you’re pretty much walking on the moon.

This question is known as the “SSP.” Your SSP stands for “special selling proposition,” and it can help you to differentiate yourself from your competitors, and help you to stand out as a business owner who has a solution that is deeply sought after. It’s important to find a good answer to this question, because without it, how are you going to convince someone to buy from you?

3) More SEO Exposure!

Another way to have more success is to focus on your SEO strategies, it’s important to join social media sites to give you more online exposure. Social sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest and a few. You could also do some YouTube video marketing about your product, what’s going on with you and the business etc.

You can now be a part of a SHIFT in the way home business are being started worldwide.

These 3 ideas for online home business success are things that you would need to consider if you want to have success in your online home business today.  Now! Take them and apply them to your online home business, and you’ll be set to go.






To Your Success,



P.S.  If you want to start an Online home business this is the way to go…


how awesome and powerful you are

Wonder WHY! The Empower Network Has The Internet On Fire!

 The Empower Network Has The Internet on fire!

People are talking about it left and right. If you’re on Facebook or Twitter, you’ve seen the ad’s three and four times. Everywhere you turn, someone is asking about Empower Network. If you’re new to the internet, you’re probably wondering what the Empower Network business is all about. You’re also wondering if it’s for you.  You click on the link and say to yourself this is interesting but “I’m not too sure if I can do it?”

empower-networkhow awesome and powerful you are

The Short Answer Is YES!  I’ll Explain WHY!

Internet marketing is HUGE right now. Everybody that is alive is setting up their own blog. There are approximately 152 million Blogs, and that number is growing.  People are using the internet to brand themselves and their businesses, and to earn affiliate income too. With so many Blogs and Websites out there, how is the newbie marketer going to be able to survive?

 That’s Where Empower Network Comes In!

Let’s pretend for a second that the Empower Network did not exist.  Heck it’s only been around a short time. Anyway, let’s say it didn’t exist. To market on the internet, you would need: a domain, hosting, a blog, a designer if you can’t build the blog yourself, a lead capture page, a sales funnel, and a auto-responder. Along with the auto-responder, you’ll  need an auto-responder series to market to your list as it develops. Each of these has a cost – both in time AND money.

Question! Is Empower Network Costly?

With Empower Network, you get all of that included to $25 per month. The auto-responder alone could cost you $15 – $20 per month.  For $25 per month, you will get a blog already set up. This isn’t just any blog. It is highly optimized, fully functional blog! The ‘secret’ to this blog is that the Empower Network provides a higher page rank, which allows your posts to get ranked higher and faster on search engines, such as Google. With an ordinary personal blog, you start out with a page rank of Zero – meaning the search engines don’t even know you’re alive.

One of the main problems internet marketers’ run into is lack of marketing knowledge. As a new marketer, you need to learn how to market! The Empower Network offers you Fast Start Training by video. There is little left to chance, so that you learn how to market. The videos tell you EXACTLY what to do! The Empower Network has weekly conference calls designed to train you as a marketer… from the BEST internet marketer in the world!

As a new marketer, you are almost guaranteed to not make any money your first few months . While there are a few superstars out there, odds are you won’t be one of them. By using the Empower Network to get started, you have a smaller investment with a greater return.  In order to earn 100% commission you have to sign up for the $19.95 affiliate program.  For every person you refer who signs up with the Empower Network. Did I mention you get that commission immediately deposited to your merchant account? With every other company, you have to wait days and weeks to get paid! Not with Empower Network! Can you imagine the feeling of getting paid NOW?!

Being Followed On & Off the Train

“Waiting For The Train After Work And Being Followed On & 0ff The Train”


It was a bright sunny day in the late 1970’s on my way home from work in Manhattan heading to the subway station.  I waited for the # 2 train at the Fulton Street Station.

I noticed a guy staring at me…looking very strange, now there is nothing wrong with another guy staring at me, because that’s something I couldn’t avoid.  But this particular guy had a certain look about him that made me very uncomfortable.

I wore sunglasses to avoid his stare and not to look nervous.

The train finally came, anxious to take it hoping that the guy didn’t get on it.

I kept praying. “God please let me get to my destination safe.
I really don’t like the way this guy is staring at me.
He is acting very strange.”

There was about 10-12 passengers waiting for the train that evening.

As I  entered the train sat at the corner where two people can sit, the guy stood at the door staring, even though I had my sunglasses on trying to avoid him, knowing that he looked like a
loony,  I started to read my new testament book.

The train stopped so I got off the train to enter three cars away from the car I was in.   Didn’t know what happened.  The train stopped at another station for about 10 minutes before it moved.

As I looked up the guy entered the same car, sat opposite me staring.

OK!  Now my heart was beating so FAST! Scared as hell!

Wishing for him to get off the train.

That’s when I convinced myself that he was really following me. I didn’t know what to do.  I kept wondering if I should get off the train, but my instincts told me to stay on the train because it
would be worse if I got off.










Now!  Here comes my stop to Franklyn Avenue in Brooklyn.  I got off the train walked so fast to get away from the guy I tried not to look back so he wouldn’t think I was scared.   So I entered a store where I usually purchase from and told the owner I was being followed. Described the clothing the guy wore, the owner of the store went out to look for the guy, but he didn’t see the guy.

I tried calling my husband to meet me, but no one answered the phone.

I felt a little better, so I left the store headed to my home.  I didn’t see the guy anymore, felt a sense of relief.

As I arrived in front of my home I was astonished, he entered the same building coming towards the elevator.  Now I know this guy didn’t live in the building. Everyone knew each other in this building. I tried to act brave but I was scared as hell! I told him what the F! Are you following me for?

With God on my side my husband got off the elevator.  He had a small broken porcelain lamp in his hand to dump.

I was happy to see my husband.

I told him the guy followed me from work.  My husband approached the guy cursing with the broken porcelain lamp in his hand.  Well you know what went down! The guy got scared and said he wasn’t following me and ran.  Which was a big lie, he was too OBVIOUS!

The next day I was a nervous wreck, couldn’t go to work, hoping that the guy didn’t show up  again to bother me, so I called in sick, I became a nervous wreck from that experience.  It took me a while to get over the incident.

My husband had to meet me after work until I got over the fear.

I’m telling you this story and I’m getting flash backs from the incident.  I still remember the guy face.

After that experience I took Karate classes to learn to protect myself.

The lesson I learned from this incident is to be on your guard wherever you go, to be aware of your surroundings and people on the train, bus and streets.  There are too many crazy people on the train and bus.   You have to be able to identify the difference of when someone is looking at you because they admire with innocent thoughts or evil thoughts in their mind.

I have to say God was there for me and he sent my husband just on time to protect me.

Always have faith in the LORD!

We All Have to Stay Alert Whenever We Travel On The Train.

Another tip!  Do not fall asleep on the train.  You may miss your stop, this happened to me before and it wasn’t a pleasant feeling.  Why?  Because I ended up at a deserted stop, in the winter which was a bit dark and scary.  So take my advise and  stay awake be alert always, especially when traveling on The Train in Brooklyn, NY and New York City.
