NowLifestyle – Could This Home Business Opportunity Prevent Old Age Debt Problems?

Is Dean Holland's Quick Start Challenge The Answer?My gran was a remarkable lady and I often used to visit her.  She always wanted to reach 100 years of age and no-one had any doubt she’d make it.

She was in a nursing home but wasn’t the eldest there.  I know of at least two who were well over a hundred.

Indeed, one day, my mum went to visit Grandma and was met at the door by a well-dressed lady of 102 who was about to go for a walk outside.

Amazing, isn’t it?

Maybe it’s the water in this area, but there do seem to be a lot of exceptionally old people around, which is a bit scary if the statistic on the BBC news the other week is anything to go by.

It said three out of ten over 50’s have debt problems.

Hmmm!

You see, even if we retire in our late sixties, or early seventies, that still leaves an awful lot of years to survive without a regular income, and if many of us are in debt at fifty, the outlook is likely to be pretty bleak, isn’t it?

Many people will end up at home too poor to go out or live a healthy lifestyle.

My gran always said it was okay getting old as long as you have your health, but it doesn’t help to have a bit of money behind you as well, does it?

One possible way to solve that is to get involved with something you can do at home and keep active at the same time, and one person who can provide that opportunity is Joel Therien.

He’s on a mission to help as many people as he can to get fit bodies and fat wallets!

It’s quite an opportunity and his NowLifestyle is something you might want to check out if you want to stay stronger for longer before it’s too late (like me).

Good Luck!

The Importance Of Creating A Good First Impression

Now I realise this is showing my age, but when I went to primary school the main focus was on the three “R’s” – Reading, Writing and Arithmetic.

Okay, l realise only one of those subjects actually begins with the letter “R”, but I didn’t start the phrase.

Anyway, every day we would sit at our little wooden desks with the hinged lids, where so many children had sat before us, and practice our writing on small black boards with white chalk.  When we’d shown our completed work to the teacher, we’d rub it out with our small blackboard rubber.

As we got older, we wrote in “proper” books with ink pens, having first dipped their nibs into the inkwells found in our desks.  Depending on the slant of our writing and our skill with the pen, we often had to soak up the excess liquid with our allocated sheet of pink blotting paper.

Daily we would go through our times tables, do our sums, and recite the alphabet. To this day I can still say it backwards!

We were also taught proper grammar and punctuation, and weekly we would have spelling tests for words we had been requested to learn at home.

Most of us did, and usually, by the time we left primary school, the majority of us could read, write, and add up in our heads without the need for calculators and spell checkers, (which was just as well because they didn’t exist in those days!)

It was all pretty laborious, but provided a good foundation.

modern schoolFast forward five decades and everything is about speed.

According to a report on the BBC News this morning, many people are ruining their chances of ever getting an interview for the few jobs currently available because of the appalling spelling, grammar and punctuation on their CV’s.

It’s creating a bad first impression, and some potential employees are taking the attitude if the prospect can’t even be bothered to check their initial application form, then it probably reflects their whole attitude to work and life in general.

This even applies to university graduates, and one building society has even sent staff for English lessons, because the bosses couldn’t understand the internal memos written by their graduate employees.

So, what’s this got to do with this blog post you might ask?

Well…

… it’s firmly believed if you want to be successful as an internet marketer, you need to get your products out fast. It’s that old “money likes speed” thing, and after all, it’s no good having a brilliant idea if it’s just in your head, is it?

One phrase you’ll often hear is,  “You don’t have to get it right – you just have to get it going”.

I understand that, but I still like to see things written in proper English and presented well, because it’s certainly true, “You only get one chance to make a first impression”.

Guess I’m just showing my age!
