Have you heard about ARBONNE yet?
The idea to provide skin care products unparalleled in quality and effectiveness developed in Switzerland in 1975, when one man, Petter Mørck, together with a group of leading bio-chemists, biologists and herbalists, fulfilled his vision and founded Arbonne.
Arbonne’s skin care products, based on botanical principles, became a reality in the United States in 1980 and are now shared throughout the world through Arbonne’s network of Independent Consultants. Building on these same founding principles, Arbonne’s product line has since grown to include both inner and outer health and beauty products that are unparalleled in quality, safety, value, benefits and results!
The wonderful thing about Arbonne is that it’s not just about great products, it’s also about great people. The Arbonne family is made up of thousands of individuals working to make their dreams come true. Through sales incentives and rewards, travel opportunities, a generous SuccessPlan and great products, Arbonne offers a unique opportunity that can help make anyone’s vision for the future a reality.
DO YOU DREAM OF FINANCIAL FREEDOM? ARBONNE CAN MAKE THAT A REALITY….
Independent Consultant/ District Manager
Obviously you are trying to market your products to grow your business. Listing a long paragraph of information is not going to help. Keep your marketing message short and sweet. I know what Arbonne teaches and I understand why you are growing your business BUT think about why consumers buy products. You will be more successful if you listen to yourself in trying to market your business rather than following what they tell you to the letter. Don’t spend alot of money either. No matter what they tell you. Your upline should not be making you spend tons of money.
What is best for my child?
My pregnant girlfriend recently broke up with me and I’m confused about what to do when the baby is born. She has two children already to other men (both suggested abortion, one is not around and the other barely makes and effort) and I loved and cared for them as if they were my own however things changed for her and we split up. I was not excited when first finding out she was pregnant (she saw baby and I saw baby, costs AND three kids) I grew into it and I am looking forward to being a proper Dad.
Where my dilemma lies is that I am from one side of the country and she is from the other. After news that her Dad doesn’t have long to live we returned to her hometown so she and her kids had as much time with her Dad as possible. Unfortunately, five weeks later, she decided that she didn’t want me to be a part of things. Despite intending to move back at an appropriate time after her father passes she has since said that she will probably not return to the west coast (where we were and where I’m from).
Her hometown is a country town two hours from the nearest major town and six hours from the nearest major city. I’m not a country person by any means and job opportunities are scarce. I also love the west coast. All of my family and friends are on the west coast.
What I would like feedback on is what is best for my child. My three options are as follows:
1) Give up my life, support network and potentially happiness while living on the east coast and being 50% of a father. My girlfriend’s other two children spend time with different people often so my child spending time with me wouldn’t be a huge dilemma other than my girlfriend is very controlling. When he/she starts school I would prefer that he/she is treated the same as his/her siblings and I worry that me taking him/her away will affect all of the kids (especially as the oldest has no father and the second child’s Dad comes along when he pleases). I know that I will make friends and develop a new support network in time but until then it would be me and baby (half the time). That’s it.
2) Give up my child and live on the west coast (not an option to me). As sad as it sounds, my child will live a happy and healthy life without me around. I know this as my girlfriend’s older kids have a lot of love and support without their Dads around and mine will receive the same. My girlfriend is a fantastic mother and I know my child will not go without. Also, it means that the kids won’t have to deal with ‘why does he/she get to go here but I don’t’.
3) Return to site work. I used to work on remote mine sites and it gave me financial freedom however it meant living away from home for 2-4 weeks at a time and living life during my one week break. Work at these sites consisted of 13 days of 10-12 hour days followed by solitude (or binge drinking with bogans/rednecks – not my cup of tea) until sleep. My employer was very happy with my work and has offered me a position if I choose to return. This option means having no life for 2-4 weeks while I work and having no life but being able to see my child for the week that I am off work. If I choose to see friends or family on the west coast I would have to sacrifice time with my child or they would have to fly to the east coast, something that can become costly nor would I expect people to do. It would also mean asking (and expecting) to have my child from the moment I get my girlfriend’s hometown until the moment I leave (roughly five nights – there is a lot of travel involved and it’s limited time so I feel this is a reasonable expectation, even as a newborn). This would be OK while all of her kids are younger but will be questioned as they get older. I would be happy to take the other kids too but I’m not so sure she would be happy with that.
So this is probably a strange question but that’s what I am facing and I would like to know what people think will be best for my child. I would love to be an active father but I also don’t want my child to be screwed up. He/she and his/her siblings will have a hard enough time as it is.
Thanks in advance for your answers.
Have you thought about seeking custody?
What career choice should I pick?
I have an MBA from Harvard Business School. I also love music and the music industry (I have a great ear for music). I would like to achieve financial freedom and become wealthy. Which career option should I choose?
1. Work as an associate at a major investment bank in NYC.
2. Start my own record label and be CEO.
3. Work at Sony Music Entertainment in NYC.
4. Work at MTV Networks (Viacom) in NYC. (I interned there and I LOVED IT!)
Which of these options is the best? Which of these options would pay the most money?
Start your own lable after working for a Sony for a year, while working – take notes, save money and prepare to go off on your own, after you are working there for a full year, you should have enough contacts and knowledge of the business to run one yourself, at that point – take the money you saved and invest it in your own record lable, you can work in Hollywood, office space is cheaper than NYC and you have more potential clients…
Where can I find Barack Obama’s 2002 anti war speech. I can find the text but not the video of the speech.
Remarks of Illinois State Sen. Barack Obama Against Going to War with Iraq
| October 02, 2002
October 2, 2002
Good afternoon. Let me begin by saying that although this has been billed as an anti-war rally, I stand before you as someone who is not opposed to war in all circumstances. The Civil War was one of the bloodiest in history, and yet it was only through the crucible of the sword, the sacrifice of multitudes, that we could begin to perfect this union, and drive the scourge of slavery from our soil. I don’t oppose all wars.
My grandfather signed up for a war the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, fought in Patton’s army. He saw the dead and dying across the fields of Europe; he heard the stories of fellow troops who first entered Auschwitz and Treblinka. He fought in the name of a larger freedom, part of that arsenal of democracy that triumphed over evil, and he did not fight in vain. I don’t oppose all wars.
After September 11th, after witnessing the carnage and destruction, the dust and the tears, I supported this administration’s pledge to hunt down and root out those who would slaughter innocents in the name of intolerance, and I would willingly take up arms myself to prevent such tragedy from happening again. I don’t oppose all wars. And I know that in this crowd today, there is no shortage of patriots, or of patriotism.
What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war. What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz and other armchair, weekend warriors in this administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne.
What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks like Karl Rove to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income – to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression. That’s what I’m opposed to. A dumb war. A rash war. A war based not on reason but on passion, not on principle but on politics. Now let me be clear – I suffer no illusions about Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal man. A ruthless man. A man who butchers his own people to secure his own power. He has repeatedly defied UN resolutions, thwarted UN inspection teams, developed chemical and biological weapons, and coveted nuclear capacity. He’s a bad guy. The world, and the Iraqi people, would be better off without him.
But I also know that Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors, that the Iraqi economy is in shambles, that the Iraqi military a fraction of its former strength, and that in concert with the international community he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history. I know that even a successful war against Iraq will require a US occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences. I know that an invasion of Iraq without a clear rationale and without strong international support will only fan the flames of the Middle East, and encourage the worst, rather than best, impulses of the Arab world, and strengthen the recruitment arm of Al Qaeda. I am not opposed to all wars. I’m opposed to dumb wars.
So for those of us who seek a more just and secure world for our children, let us send a clear message to the President today. You want a fight, President Bush? Let’s finish the fight with Bin Laden and Al Qaeda, through effective, coordinated intelligence, and a shutting down of the financial networks that support terrorism, and a homeland security program that involves more than color-coded warnings. You want a fight, President Bush?
Let’s fight to make sure that the UN inspectors can do their work, and that we vigorously enforce a non-proliferation treaty, and that former enemies and current allies like Russia safeguard and ultimately eliminate their stores of nuclear material, and that nations like Pakistan and India never use the terrible weapons already in their possession, and that the arms merchants in our own country stop feeding the countless wars that rage across the globe. You want a fight, President Bush?
Let’s fight to make sure our so-called allies in the Middle East, the Saudis and the Egyptians, stop oppressing their own people, and suppressing dissent, and tolerating corruption and inequality, and mismanaging their economies so that their youth grow up without education, without prospects, without hope, the ready recruits of terrorist cells. You want a fight, President Bush? Let’s fight to wean ourselves off Middle East oil, through an energy policy that doesn’t simply serve the interests of Exxon and Mobil. Those are the battles that we need to fight. Those are the battles that we willingly join. The battles against ignorance and intolerance. Corruption and greed. Poverty and despair.
The consequences of war are dire, the sacrifices immeasurable. We may have occasion in our lifetime to once again rise up in defense of our freedom, and pay the wages of war. But we ought not — we will not — travel down that hellish path blindly. Nor should we allow those who would march off and pay the ultimate sacrifice, who would prove the full measure of devotion with their blood, to make such an awful sacrifice in vain.
Thanks but Im look for a video of the speech in it’s entirety.
It sounds like you are helping him push propaganda.
How do i (a teenager) promote affiliate products?
I’m only a teenager so none of my friends will be interested, so social networking isn’t really an option.
I’m trying to promote a 21st Century Academy homestudy course, by allowing people to get their hands on a free DVD & Ebook
The DVD and Ebook teaches you how you can change your life in massive ways to change your mindset into a millionaires mindset and achieve financial freedom.
Now i know this may sound ridiculous to you, and you probably see these types of posts on the internet all the time, but i really hope you guys can atleast take a look at the link, as skeptical as you may be, just take a look… its free why not?
I’m trying to get commissions so i can actually afford to become a 21st century member, because i believe this organization will help me become financially free in the future.
And thank you to everyone that helps me find ways to promote this
