Sponsor an activity Pouch to a child in the Hospital
For only $15 you will be bringing a bringing a smile to a child’s face : )
Both my children were in the hospital several times throughout their young lives. They were each given an activity bag to keep while during their stay and to bring home as well
This really helped keep them busy and made them feel REALLY special when they were there! These activity bags were donated by local groups/church/organizations.
I would like to be that person again this year. That being said. I am asking each of you to buy/donate one of these zipper pouches for a child this year for the holidays. I will be using the proceeds to purchase things like coloring books/crayons/puzzles etc. to keep sick little ones busy during there stay in the hospital. I will also be having other children writing get well cards to be included with each pouch.
I will be donating the Activity Pouches to the Pocono Medical Center Pediatric Floor sometime in December
* 100% commission from each pouch purchased is being donated back into filling each pouch.
Please help this amazing cause : )
Feel free to share with all your friends…spread the love for a great cause…

Most direct sales and small business companies offer not only Superior products in their category, but financial freedom to their owners. And no, the money you are spending on non quality products actually doubles when you have to replace or buy new products that never worked at all.
Direct sales aren’t always well received, and that’s fine. For some reason when your friend starts selling these things, many of us find every reason to not support them, rather than the big corporations. But what if you were helping your friend pay for her kids Christmas?!
If you are a distributor, ambassador, representative, presenter, consultant or owner of your own business then I’m sure you’ve heard this reasoning from your friends☝️☝️
*If I have the chance to support my friends, over a billion dollar company that doesn’t care about me, or their product quality, I’m going to. I have shared some links for our family and friends sites for you to use this holiday shopping season.
DIRECT SALES AND PRIVATE OWNER FRIENDS, GO AHEAD AND DROP YOUR LINK IN COMMENTS BELOW PLUS ANY HOLIDAY DEALS YOU MAY HAVE GOING ON.
AND IF YOU ARE A FRIEND READING THIS, MAYBE CHOOSE TO SUPPORT SOME SMALL BUSINESSES (families) THIS SEASON!
Just some food for thought:
Kylie Jenner releases a lip kit 💋👍
Jordan puts out a new shoe 👟👍
Dre has new headphones 🎧👍
Diddy has a new brand of Vodka 🍸👍
A friend or a family member starts a business ✋🙅👎✊❌
Why are we so quick to support someone we don’t know, who already have plenty of money 💸 ???
But have a million reasons not to support someone we know living a regular lifestyle just trying to make their dreams come true? 🌟
When you support direct sales/network marketing and a small local business you are helping someone provide for their families 👪 someone pay for their son to go football training ⚽ or their daughter to go ballet 🎀 someone get back on their feet 👣 and someone you know 👭
Yet so many people would rather contribute to a celebrity’s new vacation ✈ home 🏡 or expensive sports car collection 🚘
We are just trying to build a future for our family… ❤️
Did you know that you don’t even have to PURCHASE from us to help? 👉even LIKING our posts or commenting helps us more than you know! 😚
For those who support us and help, thank you from the bottom of our heart!

Well, think of it as your first date with your browser. This is your next opportunity to convert your browser into a real follower. At this point your browser has most likely read your AboutUs or BIO page and thinks it would be in their best interest to follow you. How do we convert a browser into a follower with your first autoresponder? Let us share what we have found to work and some additional ideas we found in researching the web on this.
Have you set up an AutoResponder? Is it set up with your blog and social media accounts? In the Social Comments below, let us know if you have an AutoResponder setup and ready to capture browsers and convert into followers. In our next post we will review how we are setting up MailChimp with this site.
If you have found value in Establishing Your First Autoresponder, please use the share button to share it with your friends.
What is on your AboutUs Page? Did you know this is page is one of the most visited page of blogs and websites? A clear and interesting AboutUs page will influence your browsers into becoming a subscriber. With our Top 5 AboutUs Page Tips, we hope to lend you the proper direction in building you a super silent sales person.
We have researched the web for the best tips to building a silent salesperson to sell you to your new viewers. Now, so you do not feel overwhelmed we narrowed our list down to the top 5 AboutUs page tips. We found make these make the biggest difference in converting a browser into a follower.
I have seen from multiple mentors and websites shows how much a browser trusts an expert is being able to see the expert is real. Share a nice picture of yourself. We have seen many different styles for pictures. We have seen professional head-shots to pictures showing the expert having “Fun” and every where in between. We will stay with the two most common we will refer to as Head-Shots and Fun Photos. I personally like the Head-Shot as it displays a professional manner of yourself. However, as viewing many of my mentors about pages, many are choosing a Fun Photo. It really depends on the type of business you are conducting. I am thinking of using a Fun Photo in my next AboutUs page revision. Let me tell you why. In today’s social media generation we are noticing a turn from the old business model to a newer social business model. Browsers want to connect to people they can relate to. A Fun Picture will show a more personable side to yourself and a browser may relate to you better.
Take a moment and think. Have you ever been recommended to go to a specific mechanic, flower shop or even diner? While you are writing your page it is a great idea to mention a mentor or two, even linking to your mentor. As an added value, if you have a mention by your mentor, link to that mention. With WordPress plugins there are many ways to show social proof. We like to use Spider Facebook. With this app you can add a sidebar to show your FaceBook Fan Page. It also lets your browser see how many followers you have on FaceBook. All of this is to show your browser your social proof.
As you are writing your page you want to keep your experiences simple. What I mean is do not make it look like only you can succeed in your experiences. If your goal is to help them succeed with a similar process and you sell yourself like a super hero, the browser may not feel they will be able to have the same experience. In addition, open your own failures to your browser. This will help the browser relate and understand they are not the only ones that experience highs and lows in life.
When a browser is looking over your site and page, they are ultimately looking for what you may be able to offer them. Remember that while you are writing your page. Now do not go into a sales mode. However go into a problem solving mode. Focus on one of your common business hurts and express how you have already helped make the hurt go away. It is also a good idea to link to an actual client or partner to help in validation. If you share any of your failures make sure to share how you learned and grew from them. You will be surprised how many of you browsers may have experienced the same, but never overcame them.
With this page being a big part of your silent salesperson, are you maximizing your opportunities with a call to action? This is a great time to convert your browser to a subscriber. This is a great place to put your blog subscription form or e-Mail list. Remember the browser is just getting to know you so take action yourself and put together a great first e-Mail. Fear not if you do not have experience in this, I will be reviewing this topic for next week.

This number comes from just the top 100 Direct Selling companies on the Direct Selling News website that was published last month. With an average payout over the years of about 38% to distributors and consultants, that equates to over $30 Billion dollars put back into the pockets of fellow Direct Sales marketers. Let me ask you, did you have an opportunity at your JOB in 2015 to have a share of anything like this?
I wanted to take a look at how other industries did last year. Jumping onto the web it is easy to find data, using the DSN and Statista sites for my findings. With the exception of Oil and Transportation, that just blew every other industries revenues away by 10-20 fold, I confirmed that the Direct Sales industry definitely leads the way. If we block the Music, Video and Movie Industry together for their 2015 sales only equal about half of our industry. The NFL last year barely equaled about 20% of our industries sales.
I put the above graphic together to share with my Ambit Energy team and figured it is a great share for our master mind team.
If you find value in this Golden Nugget, please share it with with your team. Likewise, if you have any topics to share with our mastermind team, please email us so we can include your Golden Nugget with the team.
It is significantly cheaper than other advertising methods and, if done right, helps build loyalty and trust with customers. As a result, you generate more sales and more profits!
It has been almost a year now that we have been hosting FaceBook FanPage event on our FaceBook Page The Great Big Book of Everything – Paul Truman Jr. We run a #FanPageFriday event every Friday and #FanOfTheWeek event every Saturday. Between these two events we have built a solid following.
#FanPageFriday – How we run the event.
1 – Picture – Because our core business is energy, we picked a simple light bulb graphic that has become our FanPage Icon. We tried to keep the amount of colors in the icon to a few core colors. This lets us change up the look simply by doing a color swap in PSP. We tried different type fonts and sizes and found our current icon meets FaceBook AD specifications with the correct percentage of verbage.
2- Time of Post – We found that a post as close to midnight on Friday morning have the best responses. Now, I need my beauty sleep, so midnight normally never sees me. Thankfully, there is a way to schedule posts on FaceBook. I am all about automation, so I normally have an entire month of FanPageFriday events scheduled at the start of the month.
3- Event Copy – Well, we have gotten our hands slapped by FaceBook a few times with our #FanPageFriday event wording. With some tweaking below is the copy that we publish with our icon.
Welcome to this week’s #FanPageFriday event at The Great Big Book of Everything – Paul Truman Jr. Can We Get a “Show Us The Likes”? The rules are simple;
1. “Like” my page and leave us a comment so we can return the ‘Like”.
2. Share your #FaceBookFanPage url/link in the comments below the picture.
3. Like the pages of other #FacebookFanPage of the ones you like. (You don’t have to like them all.)
Don’t Forget to share this post on your page and invite others to the party! When we help out we all win!
Remember the more shares and interaction you participate on the page, the better the chance of being selected as the #FanOfTheWeek for a spotlight post.

4- Fan Interaction – You may have noticed my use of #HashTags throughout this post. These help the event gain visibility, organically in FaceBook. To help visibility I begin sharing the post. First on my personal page, then in FaceBook groups of like minded fans. Don’t forget to like the post yourself. This will help in adding visibility for this FaceBook FanPage Event. Normally,our event will have multiple interactions before lunch time. This is when I start individual interactions with the participating fans. With a simple Thanks and a like to their post on the event and their page, the relationship begins to build. At this time I would also add a comment to the event post that reminds my fans about the #FanOfTheWeek event that concludes Saturday morning for the week prior.
#FanOfTheWeek – How we run the event.
1 – FanPage Event Application – This FaceBook FanPage event is simple as it is just an application that you would install on your FanPage. You can look at our #FanOfTheWeek Tab to obtain the link to install on your own FaceBook FanPage. The application is free for trial and then monthly subscription. I am just running it in trial mode which selects the fan for us each week and does a little Spotlight Post for the selection.
2 – Interaction – In our FaceBook FanPage Friday event we mention interaction in posts of our page will raise their opportunity to be chosen as the #FanOfTheWeek. Once the APP chooses the Fan, we reach out to them with a TAG on the post to congratulate them on being chosen as #FanOfTheWeek. This helps get the post seen by the friends of the fan. Next we reach out to the Fan to give them an opportunity to send us a BIO of themselves and any business they may be a part of. We would then write a post on our blog including the BIO they submitted.
Other FaceBook Fan Page event that we have held include #Ladders and #TwitterTuesdays. However, we have not invested as much time on these. We do have plans to build these events into our FaceBook FanPage Weekly Events and will do a future post to share our process.
