During my last interview , the topic of the name of this blog came up again.  It’s not  really surprising as it has absolutely nothing to do with the menopause in the usual sense of the word.   It’s mostly my thoughts on all sorts of different subjects.

However, just to set the record straight,  it came about because I was introduced to the world of the internet during one of my “menopausal moments”.  You know, those times when you act completely out of character.

Anyway,  at that time I had no idea about the importance of keywords and relevance as far as the search engines are concerned, and now I know better, but…

…this blog is comfortable.  It’s familiar like an old pair of slippers and I’m reluctant to change it.

I  have this idea if people are meant to find me, they will.

You did!

Anyway, that’s how the blog started, and since then I’ve done many things “out of character”, including joining some mlm/network marketing companies, which is something I’d never considered was really “me”.

To be perfectly honest, it still isn’t, BUT I can see the potential of earning residual income for promoting GOOD products,  and that’s the only reason I’m involved.

They’re  ALL , not just “good”, but GREAT products,  and I use them, and would use them regardless of whether there was an income opportunity involved, or not.

To me, that’s secondary, but I know a lot of people are making a LOT of money by actually making the introduction of the work from home mlm opportunities to others their sole business.

I just tell people about them because I like the products, know they can help people, and if anyone buys or joins as a result of my recommendation, then great.

It’s a win-win situation, isn’t it?

As you can tell from this site, I am a huge fan of everything GVO.  I’ve interviewed and even written a book about Joel Therien,  and I don’t put my name to things lightly.

I hate hype, and that’s one thing you don’t get with GVO, although I have to admit I hate it when they launch any new products, because everything is geared to the serious  mlm/network marketer type of person, rather than those less interested in that sort of thing…

… like me.

That’s the situation at the moment with MeetCheap, which is a phenomenally,  inexpensive, web based, collaborative tool, due to launch to the public on 23rd January, 2012.

At only $19.97 per YEAR for a 20 seat conference room, where you can hold live webcasts, web meetings, sales presentations, etc., anywhere in the world where there is an internet connection , and which has an mlm business opportunity included in the price as well, I guess they can be forgiven for a bit of hype.

After all, there’s NOTHING currently to compare to it out there in cyberspace, especially as it can be linked to ViralWebcaster so the webcasts can actually be held inside of Facebook!

That hasn’t been released yet either, but I’m reliably informed it’s very powerful and, “WILL BE the TOOL of 2012”

Viral Webcaster is the brainchild of Tissa Godivitarne and Mark Call, another two hype free people I like, because they are genuinely nice and helpful.  They also make a very profitable living from holding webinars so clearly they know what they’re doing and have implemented the best of everything in this new product.

If you want to check it out before it even launches, you can go to the ViralWebcaster page on Facebook, where there’s a short video explaining how it works.

Apparently, you have to first, click the LIKE button and, second, Click ALLOW, and then Mark Call gives you the details

Anyway, if you  also want to check out  MeetCheap, or any of the other GVO products, you can go to my 10 Questions page and scroll to the bottom.

They’re all listed on that page, because (according to those in the know) they all satisfy the criteria for the questions you should ask yourself before getting involved with any home based business.

The 7MinuteWorkout satisfied the criteria too, and is a great health and fitness lifestyle program, which I’m sure many people will appreciate in the New Year, especially if they indulge just a bit too much over the festive season!

Here’s  a video I made about it, and if you want to see more I’ve written about it, you can check out my 7MinuteSuccessWorkout site.

Finally, there’s ONE Group.

Now this company provides certified organic skincare amongst other things, and certainly doesn’t fulfil all the criteria for the 10 questions, BUT I suffered from mercury poisoning and had to get rid of as many toxic chemicals from my body as possible, and you’ll be surprised how many your everyday items contain.

I was!

Anyway, these Miessence, Mi-Vitality and Mi-Environ products only contain beneficial and active ingredients from food and plants, (which I can pronounce), rather than potentially dangerous Lab concocted toxic synthetic chemicals, (which I can’t pronounce).

That’s why I use them, and as I personally use a sufficient amount each month to fulfil the required order level to become an Independent Representative and potentially earn commission, then it makes sense to choose that option, doesn’t it?

If you want to read my story, you can check out my books at JeanShaw.com, or you can get my free organic report here.

Now, here’s a video I made about ONE Group, incase you’re interested in either purchasing,  or building a home based business with chemical free products , BUT it certainly isn’t for everyone, and of all the mlm opportunities I’ve found myself part of, this is probably the hardest to sell.

Of course, it doesn’t bother me, because I just want to use the products, but that may not be the case for you.

 

Anyway, that’s why my blog is called , “Jeans’s Menopausal Moment”, but  I guess my moment of madness  has  already allowed me to meet hundreds of people worldwide,  and led me to become an author, an interviewer, a blogger, an article writer, a ghost writer, video producer, webmaster, and an mlm and network marketer, albeit unintentionally.

That’s not bad is it?

The menopause is supposedly a time of change,  and I certainly haven’t stood still.

Wonder what 2012 will bring?

Best wishes for the festive season and take care.

As a young child in the late 50’s, I used to enjoy Watch With Mother in black and white on our one and only home TV.

 

It was a combination of education and entertainment, and I watched, listened and learned.

 

Now, in 2011, when I’m in my late 50’s, I’ve enjoyed Learn With Sally in full colour on my computer, and again I’ve been educated and entertained.

 

I’ve once more watched, listened and learned.

 

However, in 2012, I’m going to take action, because the tips, tricks and techniques used by The Blog Hopping Queen really work, plus, of course, slight Sally is not someone to be messed with.

 

This wee Scottish Lassie threatens to kick butt!

 

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Sally (again) following the successful completion of her first Learn With Sally coaching course, and also two of her more active students, Nikki Stephens and Barry Wells, who’ve put me to shame.

 

When  you listen to our chats you’ll discover why Sally’s method of teaching is so effective and how Gold Stars and acknowledgement can produce far more positive results than criticism.

 

In our lives we’re all guilty of being quick to criticise, and slow to praise, and maybe the world would be a different place if it were the other way round.

 

People generally remember the last thing you say, so if you want to make friends and influence people, try to make sure it’s positive!

 

You can listen to my interview with Sally here,

and with Barry and Nikki , here

On Sally’s last webinar in the course, she felt it was a bit like saying goodbye to her children and letting them loose on the world.  She was proud of ALL of them and  said she knew they’d go on and be successful in whatever they chose to do.

 

She’s like that – inspiring, motivating  and encouraging.

 

Sally’s course is no longer available, BUT you can purchase the replays, and if you’re considering starting an online business, or want to move yours up a notch, I seriously recommend you purchase them.

 

Sally covers blogging, social media, video, and various other easy to implement strategies , which help build that all important Know, Like and Trust!

Make 2012 your best year yet -just like me!

 

Take care and Season’s Greetings.
