How to Create Your Promotional Calendar (The New Year Planning Episode)
Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want to Miss:

Time to hit the ground running for your 2018 planning. And I mean starting TODAY.
This episode is meant to be your goal-setting workshop in a box—I’ve got everything you need to plan for 2018: How to do it, the questions to ask, and plenty of examples to inspire you to take action.
If you have felt like in the last year you are flying by the seat of your pants, or you have been frustrated with your promotions, or you have no idea how you’re going to make money NEXT YEAR, then it’s time to listen up and take action. [1:15]
By the way, the focus is on the first six months only, because you may want to repeat some of the success you saw in the first half of the year. I’m all about the rinse and repeat! Also: Opportunities will come your way, and I want you to have some flexibility in your planning for those.
Rules of Engagement Upfront:

I want you to take an entire day to do this process. I know, I know. No bellyaching. I don’t want you to feel rushed or pressured to get it done.
Pick a “special spot” to do this. If you want extra credit, book out a hotel room or a co-working space. If you’re going to do this at home, promise me you’ll send everyone away so you have the space to create, focus and think.
Don’t do this alone. Engage your virtual assistant or anyone on your team (either via Skype or fly them out!). I understand that you may be a “one-person show”—I encourage you to then find a friend or a peer that can be your sounding board.
Grab a whiteboard or a big sticky board. You’ll need a space to put your notes.
The freebie for this episode is EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED TO PLAN:

Kangen How much do you know about Antioxidants

 

Kangen How much do you know about Antioxidants?
Take this little quiz to find out!

TRUE OR FALSE
Oxidation is extremely healthy for your cells.
Free Radicals kill your cells in order to replace their missing molecule.
Antioxidants are only found in fruits and vegetables.
Naturally-occurring antioxidants and synthetic antioxidants have the same health benefits.
All of those questions are FALSE!
Surprised? Keep reading!
Let’s take a deeper look at Antioxidants:

Why you need them in the first place, and how to choose the highest quality antioxidants for optimal health.

Oxidation
Oxidation is a chemical reaction that happens all around you.

An apple turns brown; iron rusts; coal burns.

Oxidation occurs in your body due to a variety of factors – pollution, cigarette smoke, excessive alcohol, poor diet, etc.
These factors introduce oxygen to your cells and cause an atom to lose an electron.

Like all things in nature, the loss of balance can have problematic effects.

When a cell is oxidized, the best case scenario is for the cell to die – which isn’t as bad as it sounds!
Your body is a pro at replacing dead cells with new ones. The real problem arises if the cell is damaged by oxidation, but doesn’t die.

This damaged cell turns into what’s known as a Free Radical.
Free Radicals
Free Radicals may be tiny, but they can have a fiercely damaging effect on your body. These cells roam around your body in attack mode, looking for other cells to hijack so they can replace their missing parts.
Instead of killing other cells (which your body could easily replace), Free Radicals leave damaged cells in their wake.

This damage goes so deep that it even affects the cell’s DNA. Now the cell mutates, replicates, and spreads its faulty DNA.
This is how disease begins, and why it can spread so quickly throughout the body.

Antioxidants

 

IMG_0580
Enter the Super Hero of our story (and your health).

Antioxidants neutralize Free Radicals.

They work by donating an extra electron to oxidized molecules, so the handicapped molecules don’t have to steal one from healthy cells.

Now the cell is back to normal and operating as usual!
It’s no wonder scientists keep finding more and more health benefits of Antioxidants – they are Nature’s way of STOPPING diseased cells before they spread!
Nature has given us many different sources of antioxidants: Beans, fruits, vegetables, nuts, tea leaves, cocoa, and more. But not all antioxidants are created equal, and some are much stronger than others.
The stronger the antioxidant, the more oxygen it will reduce in your cells.

Unfortunately, many consumers try to skip corners by purchasing synthetic antioxidants or supplements that have a very low Antioxidant capacity, but the health benefits just aren’t there.


ORP Meter

IMG_0581

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to measure and compare Antioxidants?
Good news – there is!
The strength of an antioxidant CAN be determined by its Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) level, and this level can be measured with an ORP meter.

A powerful antioxidant has a low or negative ORP level, which indicates that it has great ability to reduce oxidation.

A low ORP level indicates the antioxidant is strong enough to, for instance, reduce the corrosion of metal or the browning of an apple.
Would you like to see an ORP meter at work?

How about comparing the Antioxidants found in your favorite beverages?
You might be surprised at what you find!

There was once a time where you left school and got a job for life. These days,

many of us move around from post to post in the same industry, while others

change careers completely. Five people who took the plunge and tried something new share their stories

 

From Courtroom To Kitchen

IMG_0565Nisha Katona is the brains behind the “twisted Indian” eatery Mowgli Street Food, which has four branches.
The 47-year-old spent 20 years as a family and child protection barrister before opening her first restaurant on Bold Street, Liverpool, in 2014.
She had spent years building her passion for food before quitting her day job.
“I was working as a barrister and all the while I was teaching other lawyers and judges about cooking at my home and our local farm shop kitchen.
“I started a YouTube channel as I am evangelical about how simple and healthy Indian food is and how different eating at home is to what we see in the curry houses.”

 

Karen Beddow Qualified Litigation Lawyer Found Her Passion For Travel

The Key 🔑 To A Balanced Family Life

IMG_0567

Karen Beddow felt she was sacrificing time with her young family while working 12-hour days as a property litigation lawyer.
She now runs a family travel blog from her home in Wirral, Merseyside.
“As well as being a lawyer I sat on two boards – one as a non-executive director of a housing company and as chairman of the trustee board at a care home,” she said.
“There was one particular day where I went to the office at 7.30am, spent my lunch hour on an hour-long phone call, and ran out the office at 7pm to get to a board meeting.
“I got home at 9pm and was still making dinner at 9.30pm. I then sat down and wrote three blog posts, just because that’s what I loved doing and how I switched off, odd as that sounds.”

China – The Environment And Quality Of Life

China will find new ways to boost growth, through high-end consumption, innovation, green and low-carbon technology
Liu Xiaoming

However, growth will amount to nothing if it comes at the expense of the environment.

China recognises this,and will encourage green finance, energy efficiency, environmental protection, clean production and clean-energy industries.

We will establish agencies to manage state-owned natural-resource assets and monitor ecosystems.

We will strengthen environmental control on water, air and land pollution and

bring polluters to account.

High-quality growth in a major country with a population of 1.3 billion will be key for sustainable development in the world.

An effective email marketing campaign is more than sending weekly or monthly newsletters.

By creating engaging marketing campaigns, you can gain more email contacts, more website visits and repeated visitors all at once, strengthening your relationship with existing customers and attracting

new potential customers.

Maintaining and growing your email contacts is vital.

Here are some top tips for getting the right email addresses and forging new relationships with audiences – without having to spend huge amounts

of money.
