Help Increase Your Energy Levels and Reduce Insomnia Problems

Ever feel tired and lethargic?

Do you notice a loss of muscle tone or perhaps your muscles are tender?

Not sleeping as well as perhaps you think you should?

Maybe your concentration or your memory is not as sharp as you think it once was.

Are you anaemic?

Could it be your body is deficient in something and it’s making you feel this way?

If you are suffering from any of the above it may be that you are deficient in Vitamin B.

So let’s take a look at Vitamin B – well actually it is not just one vitamin.  Vitamin B consists of a group of vitamins namely  B1, B2, B6. B12, Folic Acid,  Niacin (B3), Panthothenic Acid (B5) and Biotin.  All these vitamins make up what is known as B Complex.

The B vitamins are water-soluble vitamins.  Water-soluble vitamins cannot be stored by the body and need to be ingested every day.

B vitamins do not provide the body with fuel for energy, however they do help the body to use the fuel to provide energy.  Some of the B vitamins form part of the coenzymes that assist certain enzymes in the release of energy from carbohydrates, fats and proteins.  Other B vitamins play a big role in metabolism.  Others help cells to multiply – some of these cells being the red blood cells and cells that line the gastrointestinal tract – cells that deliver energy to all the others.

The B complex group of vitamins all work together synergistically like one big happy family. An excess in one could produce a deficiency in another.  For this reason, if you decide to take a Vitamin B supplement, it would be better to choose a B Complex rather than individual B vitamins.

A shortage of one of the B complex group of vitamins can hinder many metabolic processes – another good reason to take a B Complex.

So what can cause a deficiency in B Vitamins?

A diet high in refined carbohydrates, alcohol abuse, overuse of antacid drugs, the contraceptive pill, smoking and stress can all cause a deficiency in B vitamins

How do I top up my Vitamin B naturally?

You can increase your intake of the B vitamins by eating foods such as: liver, kidney, nuts, egg yolks, milk, dark green vegetables, pulses, wholemeal cereals, and fish.  But remember these vitamins need to be topped up daily!!

An outline of each of the individual B vitamins:

B1 (Thiamine) – Rapidly destroyed by heat – essential for complete aerobic release of energy from carbohydrates.

B2 (Riboflavin) – Concerned with carbohydrate and protein metabolism, especially in the eyes and skin.

B3 (Niacin) – helps in breakdown of fats, inhibits the production of cholesterol, and is associated with energy-releasing reactions in cells.

B5 (Pantothenic Acid) – involved in energy production, production of anti-stress hormones, controlling fat metabolism. formation of antibodies, maintaining healthy hair, skin and nerves

B6 (Pyridoxin) – crucial to blood formation and energy production and has anti-depressant and anti-allergy functions.

B12 (Cyanocobalamin) – essential for production of red blood cells which carry oxygen to al other cells in the body, needed for making use of protein, detoxifies smoke and other toxins in food

Folic Acid – Only a very small amount of Folic Acid is stored in the body and as it is essential for DNA synthesis, when it is lacking then cell division is impaired and it can lead to anaemia.

Biotin (an unofficial B Vitamin) – associated with the metabolism of carbohydrates

Lots of these vitamins can lose their goodness into the water when boiled.  A better method of cooking which will help to keep from destroying the vitamins would be to steam them.

Forever Living Products have an amazing range of high quality supplements all the components of which we either produce ourselves or we control the ingredients from source .  For example in our Forever Living Aloe Vera Drinking gel (which contains all of the vitamins we are talking about)  we grow and process all our own aloe vera plants organically.

This little video will give you an idea of how we do this

Our topic tomorrow will be on how to fight off cold and flu, give your body another dose of antioxidants and a further boost in energy levels.  In the meantime if you would like to learn more about our company, our supplements or any of our other natural aloe vera based products please visit  our website http://www.geraldinelay.myforever.biz

For a long time, I thought I was going crazy. I’d convinced myself that something horribly wrong was about to happen. I thought I would be stabbed, shot, or arrested every time I left my apartment. I was sure that there was an impending disaster that would melt the…

Diary of a Virgin Multi Level Marketing Professional – Week 1

The title of this post is a little contradictory I know but although I am brand new to the Multi Level Marketing business I am focussed on becoming a Professional Multi Level Marketer and what better way to achieve this than to learn from those who are mega successful in the business, and have been for years!

Before getting involved with Multi-Level Marketing read as much as you can from those who have been in this business for many years and more importantly are successful in this business and really listen to what they are teaching you.

Richard Bliss Brooke has a great book out called The Four Year Career which compares the world now to how it used to be and why multi-level marketing is the way forward.

Eric Worre writes another fantastic  book called Go Pro.  This is a brilliant guide to how to be a Multi-Level Marketing Professional.  Both books are well worth investing your time in.

Multi-level marketing is not a way to get rich quick!  Sorry if that disappoints some of you but that’s a fact.  Yes it has happened to a very small number of people but not many.

To be successful you do need to work hard BUT you can work hard and enjoy what you are doing.  You can socialise whilst you do it which can be great fun.  The difference is you can end up after 4 – 7 years with a six figure income and a great pension. For most of us – how many jobs are there that can give you kind of future in this current climate?

And the beauty is you can start this business part-time to fit around your current commitments of work, family, etc., then build it up until you can afford to really fire it up and go full time.

Richard Bandler (Neuro Linguistic Programming Guru) teaches us that we can learn to do anything by duplicating that which others do brilliantly so I am passing on the little pearls of wisdom I have learned from the masters this week.

1.  Finding the right product is essential. You need to use the products yourself and more importantly believe in the products and have 100% confidence that the products deliver the benefits that they say they will deliver.  If you really love the products your enthusiasm will shine through when you talk to others about them.

2. Once you’ve found the products check out the company

How long have they been in business?

What are their profits and have their profits been showing a steady growth year on year over say the past 10 years?

How much do you have to pay to join the company?

Where are their distribution centers ?

How long does it take for delivery of orders?

What is the returns policy (and what percentage of their sales is returns)?

What support do they offer you and what training is available?

How ethical is the company (if this is important to you)?

3. Look for the right sponsor.  There are lots of sponsors out there.  Some great sponsors who offer tons of support and encouragement and some who are not so great.  You need to feel comfortable with your sponsor and know they will be there to prop you up at times if you need some support.  Get to know your sponsor before signing up with them.

4.  Understand that when you go into this business it is YOUR business.  You run it how you like and you earn as much or as little as you want/need to, depending on the effort you wish to put in.  Although the company will offer you all the support (if you are lucky enough to find the right company) it is up to you and you alone how you run your company.  Starting a new business by yourself can be very daunting, but if you choose the right company you will never be on your own.

5. Understand the company’s compensation plan.

How much commission will you earn?

When and how is it paid?

Are there other bonuses, if so at what stage do they kick in?

How do you build your business?  Building a business takes hard work and effort – I repeat – this is not a get rich quick business – it takes time to build it!

6. Where does the company hold it’s Business Presentation evenings.  This is where you might want to take your new distributors when they sign up with you so make sure it is at a convenient distance to where you live – you really don’t want to be driving 100’s of miles to get there each time you want to take someone and it could put new distributors off if they think it is too far for them to be travelling.

So that’s all the things I have learned, some of which I hadn’t really been aware of / thought of before I joined the company I am with – fortunately I struck lucky!  But don’t leave it up to luck – you might not be a fortunate as I was.

I hope this helps you to find the right company with the right products, the right sponsor and a truly fabulous lifestyle.

Giving up my day job!

Having been a complementary therapist for the past 8 years (on a very part time basis and whilst still holding down a day job) I have finally taken a leap of faith and made the decision to give up a very stressful position (I left my job last week 🙂 ) and take a huge step forward forward to a position of being able to help and heal AND work in a wonderfully stress-free environment. In other words my perfect “job”.
Confucius quotes “Chose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”.  I hope never to work another day in my life!!
However although I do realise there are massive benefits in doing this, it is very scary.  As you probably already know:
1). It takes time to build a full time practice and not many clients stay with us indefinitely.
2). There are only so many days in the week and hours in the day I can work
3). There is only so much strain my hands/back and brain can take – as we all know our work can be physically and emotionally draining sometimes
4).  I have given up a full time with an exceptionally good salary and although money is not the driving force behind us complementary therapists, in realistic terms we all need to eat and pay our bills.
So before taking the leap I did a lot of thinking around how I could make a residual income which took the pressure off me and meant I didn’t have to raise my charges to my clients.  I have always wanted my therapies to be beneficial to as many people as possible and still do. Raising my charges may make the cost of a therapy too expensive for some.
I wasn’t looking for something that would mean having to put in more hours and I certainly wasn’t looking for something that was going to cost me a lot of money to do. Time and money were not in abundance and I couldn’t afford to waste either.
BUT I was looking for something that would be congruent with my therapy practice. It had to be something that enabled me to offer more benefits to my clients and something I truly believed in, something that feedback would tell me was as good as I believed it was.  And I found it!
My new job ad:
The job is with a Company larger than Gucci, and promises a secure position even in these troubled financial times. You can pick your own hours and pay rises and promotions are positively encouraged! This job allows you to meet people, and help others. You will be provided with a secure pension in which you invest time rather than money. And to say thank you for your hard work, the Company will give you a new car and free holidays around the world!
You see the job, but would you apply? Would you decide it was too good to be true or would you seek more information? Well that advert is here and now, and the opportunity for more information is here for the taking. I know it because this is exactly what its doing for me! There are more vacancies – tell me, what have you got to lose?

New to Multi Level Marketing

So you’re thinking of joining a multi-level marketing company?  You’re not on your own – currently with the unemployment situation and the lack of security in “normal” jobs lots of people are looking for something that will give them control over their future.

There are many reasons people are deciding to go down this route. It may be because you’ve just been made redundant for the umpteenth time and have decided to take your future into your own hands or that the entrepreneur inside you is bursting to get out.  For whatever reason you have,  are you totally prepared for the journey?

The first thing is to find a company that you feel totally in tune with that has great products you are really interested in – your enthusiasm for the products is key.

The second thing I believe is to have products that are consumable.  You want customers to use up what they buy and then come back for more.  A lot of business (think I read somewhere recently that about 80%) is done by repeat sales – so look after your customers!

The best advice I got when I joined Forever Living was to use the products.  This really wasn’t difficult as they stretch across a wide range of health and skincare goodies and I already had tried their deodorant and their shampoo and thought they were fabulous.

So I cleared out all the cleansers, moisturisers, shampoos and soaps etc. I had bought in the supermarket and replaced as many as I could with my new Aloe Vera products and set to using them.  It wasn’t long before my husband’s curiosity got the better of him and he wanted to try them too.  And it wasn’t too long before people started to comment on how great my skin and hair were!

I loved the products so much I started to tell people about my experiences with them and before I knew it I had quite a few customers!

SO LOVE YOUR PRODUCTS AND TELL EVERYONE HOW MUCH YOU LOVE THEM AND WHY!!  TELL THEM ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF USING THEM

Once I had told everyone  I knew about my products and my wonderful new business – I wasn’t too sure what to do next.  You can’t keep ramming it down people’s throats otherwise you start to lose friends and family dread you coming over!  You might be completely blown away with your new business but others don’t really want to hear about it every time they see you. I am sure we have all met (or tried to avoid) people like that!

Although my products are consumable, one of their best selling points is that you don’t need to use a large amount of them to get great benefits.  Unfortunately that means that your customers don’t need to re-order too often.  Great for your customers but not great for your sales figures!!

So I guess I needed more customers.

But if I got lots of new customers – how would  look after them so they got the personal service I wanted to give them.  I joined this business to have more time to myself not less.  I wanted to work part-time.  I already had a job that was full-time and really didn’t want to have another one.

Well next thing to do is to find others who could do what I was doing.  Use the products and recommend them to friends and family – sounds easy enough doesn’t it?

……..to be continued

Multi-level Marketing – Is it for you?

Multi-level marketing is set to become one of the more popular ways to earn a living in the future.  People’s jobs are becoming less secure and more people want to take control of their future instead of leaving it in the hands of someone else.

So what are the benefits of multi-level marketing?

Well for me some of the benefits were:

  • I wanted to be able to work from home
  • I wanted to be able to work the hours I choose
  • I wanted to be able to start part-time (to fit in with my current job and my family) and build a full time income
  • I wanted to be able to earn an uncapped and willable income stream
  • I wanted to build a secure pension
  • I wanted to build my business without massive overheads or worrying about employing people
  • I wanted to be able to work outside in the sunshine on those odd days that we got any!!
  • And I wanted to meet more people and have fun doing something I really enjoyed!!

But there are so many companies out there offering an opportunity.

So how do you even begin to choose which company to work with?

Well, I wanted to work with:

  • An ethical company. This was very important to me.
  • A company that produced top quality products that were consumable (giving me regular sales) and  products that did what they said they would do!  (Last thing I wanted to deal with was the aggravation of customer complaints.)
  • A company that paid me a good income
  • A company that offered lots of training on both their products and their business AND offered me support when I needed it
  • A company that recognised my efforts and rewarded me for them
  • A company that offered me a global business – and I mean GLOBAL
  • A company that supplied my products within a couple of days so I didn’t have to hold stock or keep my customers waiting a week to get their order
  • A company that wasn’t asking me for £1000’s to join them!
  • A company that offered me the opportunity to travel and have fun!

After looking at a number of companies I found the one I had been looking for!

If you are feeling that your entrepreneurial skills could be put to better use Forever Living offers all of the above and more.

Have a look at our website, you can watch the DVD’s and make your own mind up.

This business can be done by ANYONE, whether you are a mum at home and have a few hours to spare around your family commitments or if you are a professional person and wish to have a residual income to help fund those more exotic holidays or a bigger house or a bigger car or anything else on your wish list!  

Maybe you are  a student and need some extra cash  or on maternity leave and really don’t want to go back to work after your baby is born, but you can’t afford not to.  How would it feel if you didn’t have to?

If you would like to know more – just drop me an email to geraldinelay@sky.com or give me a call on 07973 422632   I can take enquiries from anywhere in the world!

I had been offered this opportunity a number of years ago – at the time I was too short-sighted or maybe too cautious or maybe just not ready  to go for it , but I really wish I had – I would have been much closer to my goal of retiring and enjoying the rest of my life .  WORK SMARTER – NOT HARDER

Know anyone who suffers with Eczema?

In the UK, one in five children and one in twelve adults have eczema while eczema and contact dermatitis account for 84-90% of occupational skin disease.  Statistics from National Eczema Society

The population of the UK on April 2012 was approximately 63.6 million.  Statistics from How Many Are There?

Correct me if I am wrong but even at 1 in twelve of the population that means that there are over 5.3 million people in the UK who suffer from this condition.  5.3 MILLION!!

WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE SUFFERING FROM THIS CONDITION?

No one seems to know why?  Could it be the chemicals in the products we use, or pollutants in the air we breathe, the water we drink or even in the food we eat.  There is no answer as yet.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT FOR ECZEMA?

One of the treatments for eczema is the use of topical corticosteroids which are applied to the affected areas.  However it is well known and documented that if potent topical steroids are used for a long period of time, particularly to the face and flexures, without adequate supervision skin thinning can occur.

Allergy to the steroid itself or to the base ingredients of the preparation can sometimes occur.

WHAT IF THERE WAS A NATURAL PLANT BASED SOLUTION?   Would you try it?

Aloe Vera (known as the miracle plant) is famous for its ability to heal – and most people know that if you burn yourself and rub the burn with the inside of an aloe vera leaf it will soothe the burn and help reduce scarring and inflammation.

Aloe Vera has natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties.

Forever Living Products have a range of Aloe based products and there are a few that work particularly well for people suffering with eczema/psoriasis and general dry skin problems.  One of these  is an  Aloe Propolis Cream – an excellent skin moisturiser and conditioner,  it is a rich blend of stabilised aloe vera gel and bee propolis, with other ingredients recognised for their contribution to healthy skin. Camomile, one of nature’s best-known skin care herbs, is also added to the mix. Vitamins A and E complete the formula, recognised for their natural skin conditioning properties.

This cream is applied to the affected area.  It is gentle enough to be used on a baby for nappy rash or indeed cradle cap.

DID YOU KNOW THAT OUR SKIN CELLS RENEW THEMSELVES?

The skin cells are the most common type of cell to undergo renewal. Skin cells start as live cells in the inner layer of skin and gradually die as they come to the surface where they are sloughed off. A typical skin cell lasts for about two weeks.

SO WOULDN’T IT MAKE SENSE TO GROW NEW CELLS THAT ARE HEALTHY?

Aloe Vera Berry Nectar drinking gel contains all the vitamins and nutrients to help build healthy skin cells and is packed with antioxidants.  Drinking a small amount of this each day along with using the Aloe Propolis Cream treats the eczema from both the inside and the outside.

I have personally seen the effects of these products on many of my customers, friends and family and Dennis (whose hand is pictured above) was delighted that his hand improved so much.

As a complementary therapist for the past 9 years, my objective has always been to do what I can to help people.  I came across these products when I was searching for something that would help a work colleague and my daughter-in-law.  I am confident in writing about Forever Living Products as they offer a full 60 day money back guarantee  – GUARANTEED!

I am really happy if you would like to contact me for further details – geraldinelay@sky.com, or your can order online at Forever Living Products
