We all know how we feel after spending time around negative people.


They are draining and very unpleasant to be around. Just last night I noticed a person posting negative comments about a product that someone posted in a group in the comment section.  Not sure what they thought would be attractive about this technique unless they thought it would make their own product look superior.  The sad thing is that they did just the opposite. Negative people attract Negative people and things into their life. Positive people will attract positive things and people in their lives.  This also goes for prosperity. So needless to say this person is probably sinking financially. Even worse they must be miserable. Don’t get the “Negative Nellie” label.

Promise me that you will join me in becoming aware of any negative thoughts of comments that we may have through the day. Each time you have one of those thoughts, focus on something you are grateful for. Visit a place that makes you feel positive, Listen to happy music, listen to motivation audio and take your mind in the positive direction. If you feel the need to correct someone, always  focus on presenting it in a positive constructive way and offer suggestions instead.

road map to treasure my vision from God 2 years ago

I had a vision a couple of years ago. In this vision my thoughts were being programmed into a gps and the vehicle was driving me toward my dreams. I picture this in my mind very often and smile saying, Thank you God!

Sharing a positive thought for you below. Enjoy!

Could Your Client Engagement Skills Use a Sense of Humor?

Brands are using humor as one of their client engagement skills. Have you noticed that some of the best online marketers are using humor and funny videos to build their brand? Take note because this works! You don’t have to be a comedian but you do need to lighten up.   I am sharing a great post from, American Express today to give you ideas.

Time is Money! Amazon can help!

amazon services

Would it help to have your home cleaned during the holidays? Would it be nice to have someone  assemble the toys and furniture that you purchased as presents? Did you know that Amazon can help you with that?


If you know me, you know how much I love Amazon. Having an amazon account through the years has enhanced my life in many ways. Amazon has provided income as a merchant, but it has also saved me money and time in so many ways.  I could talk for days on this topic, but this post is about a feature that they offer that many people are not even aware.

A couple of years back, I ordered a set of tires on amazon. When I put them in the cart I noticed that they offered the service of having these installed by one of their certified local service providers.  I was able to choose the garage nearest to my home,  compare reviews, and compare prices.

I think this is so awesome in so many ways.  Being able to view feedback was so important for me. As a female it was nice to be able to feel confident that I would not be overcharged and I knew upfront how much it cost and paid for this service through amazon. This puts the power back to where it should be in that I am hiring someone to do a service for me and I needed to ensure that they are trustworthy and would do a good job. Having paid for this service through amazon, I knew I was covered by their awesome customer satisfaction guarantee and the provider would want to keep their good rating to continue with amazon. It was a great service for me.  So save your valuable time and look into the many services that they offer today.  Do me a favor and share your experience of using services here by posting a comment.

Happy shopping!
