Smashing Chocolate Smoothies Recipes

It’s fun to make your own chocolate homemade smoothies at home – either for family, relatives or friends. It’s easy to make and quick to do (once you have all your ingredients set out). Best of all, you can expect an easy clean-up afterwards.

Chocolate smoothies bring a lot of added health benefits, too. It’s rich in magnesium (that helps prevent hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and joint problems), has trace elements of calcium, iron, potassium and vitamins A, B1, C, D, and E), and lowers high blood pressure.

It is also delicious (who doesn’t love chocolate?) and makes us happy because it triggers endorphin production and has serotonin (both substances that makes us feel good, content and happy). And when you include it in smoothies, yes, definite bliss.

How to Make a Living Online - and How Not To!

Making a living online can be fraught with danger and pitfalls. Here's how to avoid some of them....

"I make a living online!"

That's a statement right? Right!

But is it a statement of fact?

Who knows?

Well, I do because I know it's true, but how do you know I'm telling the truth?

You don't of course. But there are some things you can look for that will help you decide.

How often have you seen something like: 
"Make a ton of cash - now!
No selling
No stock to buy
No customers to deal with
Join our upside-down, instant-cash matrix now and get rich!

It goes without saying that the above is dubious to say the least. Yet, many people fall for ads like this on a regular basis.

So, the old saying "If it looks too good to be true, it probably is", could be words of wisdom.

Golden Rule: Go with your gut feeling.

Grade these statements:

1. Anyone can make a living online!
2. You don't need capital to start a business!
3. It's much cheaper to start a business online than in the 'real world'!
4. You don't need to sell products or services to make money online!
5. You can make money instantly online!

These are my thoughts on the above:
1, 3 & 4 - generally speaking, true.
2 & 5 - generally speaking, false.
An observation about 1 above is to make a distinction between 'making money' and 'earning a living'. The former could be a one-off 5 cents, while the latter could need to be $100 per day, depending, of course on individual requirements.

My dad often says; "you don't get something for nothing!"

Translated into American English it means; "there's no such thing as a free lunch!"

Never invest in an opportunity that you are not sure about. Instead, find something that you are interested in and will enjoy doing. In other words; do what you like doing, and the money will follow.

"Okay Anginetta", I hear you say, "get to the point".

The point is this:
If you expect to make a living online without doing any work and without spending any cash upfront, go get a 'proper' job instead - preferably one that allows you to daydream a lot.

However, if you're prepared to spend some time, researching, listening & learning and have allocated some kind of budget (we're not talking megabucks here), then it's perfectly feasible to make a living online.

I started an enterprise about seven months ago with $300 and it's now earning me $500 per month residual income and growing. It took some hard work and a steep learning curve at first but now it's got into gear and I could virtually leave it alone to keep increasing month on month.

The Internet is a fantastic source of information - it's up to you to find that information and decide whether it's worth using or just more 'pie in the sky'.

Working from home is becoming a trend, so don't sit back and wish things would get better for you financially. You are just a click away from making your dreams a reality. 

Happy Holidays

Total Peace Of Mind...

My Why Just Got Bigger...

A few weeks ago I was formally introduced to Motor Club Of America, only after I got a speeding ticket driving back to Missouri from Texas visiting my Son and Sister who lives there. (pre-grandbaby)
I don't drive at night and on the way there I was so terrified of my Sister's night driving (80mph on a pitch black highway) like there was no possibility for a deer jumping out on her, and if one did she got it under control.

Well to make a long story short, I for got about the ticket and i'm sure you know the consequences of that. WARRANT!!! But I thank God I made it back safely, and i'm just going to be honest I almost cried before I got there. It was 20 long hours to get back home. I actually got pulled over twice. The second time I only got a warning, and oh yeah my Sister got a speeding ticket too. Thank God she was made to give up the wheel. By the way her license was suspended...go figure.

Some people feel that they are the safest drivers in the world...and fail to realize that so many that have lost their life, or suffered injuries due to automobile accidents that wasn't their fault.

My Why...Ok He's 23 days old today but I love this 2day old picture

With the benefits that Motor Club of America offer, outside of the referral bonus of 200% advanced commission on each person you refer and residual monthly income, I feel totally secure with their affordable monthly membership. Below is what they offer...may vary by membership.

Protect yourself and your family TODAY! Or share this with someone you love. There are so many out here with no insurance or not enough that it may be a blessing to know about this company. Enjoy Total Peace of Mind like I do and make an extra income while Helping Others.
