So I’m browsing around the internet, trying to learn more about ‘crowdfunding’, and the potential opportunities ahead, and I find a potential website you might be interested in.
This isn’t a pitch. I just might think it’s something cool.
I’m mostly interested in the impact of farming, and where the potential crowdfunding opportunities are for the agriculture industry. I can’t wait till be can invest in anything ANYWHERE around the world, and can own equity in something WITHOUT actual having to be an ‘accredited investor.’ Narly.
Let me know what you think via comments below. Some of you might have had some experiences with it. Some of you might know someone who’s had some great luck with it. Leave your comments below.
I’ve recently been listening more to hip hop to start making some more unique rap/hip hop beats. No matter what your opinions are about hip hop, the bests/music they make is still nevertheless interesting, AND, if I’m not mistaken, the most bought genre. Would you agree? Anyone got proof of that?
When life get’s hard, slap it in the face.
There are times when your decision is challenged. This happens to EVERYONE whether they know it or not.
The key is understand the #clarity of making a decision.
At times, there will be times when you have a million and one options, and you come to the point that you have, or you know you have to make a DECISION.
Decisions aren’t always easy, but most often they give the individual clarity.
The problem that most individuals face when making a decision, is that the 110% normal phenomenon of what I call the ‘roller-coster’ comes into play.
How does the ‘roller-coaster’ come into place your thinking?
Mother nature, or rather some NATURAL normal unspoken law steps in, and throws a HUGE curve ball, or natural curve balls that challenge your once recent concise decision.
All of a sudden, you went from knowing what you were commmited to do despite any adversity, have most recently INSTANT clarity, to all of a sudden believing that what you did, the DECISION, was COMPLETLETLY wrong, or the wrong decision.
The decision what wasn’t wrong. The commitment, or rather lack of commitment during the ‘roller-coaster’ phase is what wrong.
The emotion to not feel like your decision was 110% correct is…
To be expected from those who have continually felt the power of commitment.
But what isn’t natural …
… is giving up.
I’m not saying here that banging your head AFTER taking action on a previous commitment is wrong…
Rather banging your head on the wall is normal, and THIS is at the point you ‘pivot’. Not when the normal, natural, 110% predictable ‘roller-coaster’ phase takes place.
What I am saying is that ONCE that decision is made, STICK WITH IT, and WAIT for the predictable adversity to pop up, fight through the adversity, the normal 110% adversity, and LATER ON you’ll get to the point that your ACTUALLY banging your head on the wall…
The PRE-PHASES in the ‘roller-coaster’ phase are NOT when your supposed to ‘pivot’. Your supposed to ‘pivot’ later AFTER the roller-coaster phase, while experience your commitment for a while, THEN banging your head THEN pivoting.
Make sense? I could see how this could be a tad bit confusing … But there’s more.
And so what does ‘sticking with it’ do, through the 110% predictable adversity?
1.) It shows the world, the Universe, whatever… that you mean business.
2.) People take you more seriously.
3.) People trust you more.
3.) You gain a ‘tempered’ personality helping other people, because adversity doesn’t stick to you the way it once does. Your strength is tempered like a Japanese sword, making you stronger and stronger.
If you loose your commitment, you then thus start to loose people support. BUT, then again you might gain support from the support group in which your pivoting, but that’s a whole other conversation.
Now it’s AGAIN not to say that ‘pivoting’ (as mention in the book the Lean Startup, and we’re not talking about business per se here) isn’t the wrong thing to do, but RATHER…
- ‘Breaking things’.
- Makin mistakes.
- And failing in the mist of the ‘stink’n think’n’ roller coaster phase, think’n you can’t do it for the XYZ reason whether true or false is…
… the path to take.
Now commitment, doing what you said you weren’t going to do ISNT for everyone. And sure pivoting, or rather taking a next new step is key, but it’s SUPER important to differential the two.
Let’s look a tad close of the two concepts… (To wrap this up. :))
1.) Giving up.
Letting your fear of ‘reality’, or what I call ‘alleged reality’ IS giving up.
PIVOTING is when you failed ON purpose, with #PURPOSE, and thus made the necessary transition EXPECTING predictable failure to hit the ‘bottle-neck’, or necessary stage for ‘pivot’.
Make sense? Eesh… hope I didn’t loose ya’ lol.
Another tip, or tool, when your find justifications, whether REAL OR MADE UP out of fear because you don’t have XYZ tools/resources/resourcefulness, is to remember the teachings of people like Gary Chapman.
Gary Chapman’s books like The 5 Love Languages and Love As Way of Life aren’t so much about learning ‘love languages’/communication, as much as they’re about learning about the power of #commitments in the face of the ‘roller-coaster’ phase. You’ll often find people who don’t commitment to relationships, a bi-product of not understand REAL love, or rather giving REAL love via a person’s love language, as a core symptom of not understanding commitment, and thus bleeding off into other areas of their lives, such as making commitments to decisions. In ANY area of your life, and certainly NOT limited to relationships.

“In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.”
Ephesians 4:26, NIV
“The inability to forgive lies at the root of most unhappiness. It leads to feelings of guilt, resentment, anger, and hostility. If you’re holding a grudge, make an effort to let it go this week.”
“When someone has wronged you and refuses to apologize, the challenge is NOT to forgive the unapologizing offender but to RELEASE [HIM/HER] along with hurt and anger. If the offender confesses [HIM/HER] error and makes a positive change in [HIM/HER] life, you can then forgive. If not, THE CONSEQUENCES OF [HIM/HER] ACTIONS WILL FIND [HIM/HER] IN TIME WITHOUT ANY HELP FROM YOU. RELEASING a person is VERY different from forgiving. It does not lead to reconciliation, but it does free you emotionally and spiritually to become the person you were meant to be.”
~Gary Chapman in Love As Way of Life (pg. 76)
“Most of us need time to work through pain and loss. We can all find manor of reasons for postponing forgiveness. One of these reasons is waiting for the wrong doers to repent before we forgive them. Yet such a delay causes us to forfeit the peace and the happiness that could be ours. Some hold grudges for a lifetime, unaware that courageously forgiving those that have wronged us is wholesome, and therapeutic.”
“As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world – that is the myth of the atomic age – as in being able to remake ourselves.”
“We’re not here to save the world, we’re here to serve an emerging paradigm.”
The path to wisdom is not being afraid to make mistakes.
“If one’s life is simple, contentment has to come. Simplicity is extremely important for happiness. Having few desires, feeling satisfied with what you have, is very vital: satisfaction with just enough food, clothing, and shelter to protect yourself from the elements. And finally, there is an intense delight in abandoning faulty states of mind.”
~ Dalai Lama
“Every worthwhile accomplishment, big or little, has its stages of drudgery and triumph: a beginning, a struggle, and a victory.”

“Life without balance can cost you your relationships. Life without balance can cost you your health. Life without balance can cost you your spirituality. Life without balance can cost you your wealth and your happiness. So find things to motivate you from all areas of life. Your success depends on it.”
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back– Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”

‘Show me someone focused on money, I’ll show you someone tired, broke and hungry. Show me somebody that’s focused on helping people get something that they need and want I’ll show you somebody that drops a 112,000 check on their doorsteps, runs up the steps to change their clothes, and runs back down, and goes out the door to go do an in-home, and he forgets for 4 months theres a hundred thousand dollar check sitting on his step.”
“Don’t wish for things to be better, wish for you to be better.”

I think 99% of ‘entrepreneurs’ are a bunch of fakers.
A real entrepreneur stands up to bullies, destroys stupid industries. Makes the status quo beg for forgiveness, and at the same time, hands back the keys to God and the People.
We are all Gods.
There however is amongst us too many evil and fake people/industries. But eventually, evil ALWAYS get’s checked. EASILY.
“Fuck money, follow the problems.” ~Mj Demarco
Let me leave you with this Gandhi quote:
“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
Today I’m trying to learn more about what the heck ‘bitcoin’ is, and how it really works. As such, I’ve came across this YouTube video that’s fairly helpful, but obviously, probably like anything, you just have to get your feet wet.
By the way, you should definately subscribe to Vices YouTube channel, and check out their website. Great stuff there. I particularly watch them for their coverage on Mexico, Central, and South American news.
So my buddy Steven yesterday asked me for some great Gandhi books yesterday, and or some more resources to learn more about Gandhi.
I recommend the following resources for those interested in learning about Gandhi…
Several movements throughout the world were replicated and duplicated thanks to Gandhi’s ideas, however what might be even important, is the peace and love that Gandhi had to leave these movements. To me, he was more influences by peace and love vs. protesting. As Mother Teresa stated in so many words, and I’m paraphrasing…
I’ll attend a celebration, but I won’t attend a protest.
Gandhi had that same kind of energy.
I’ll leave you all with those thoughts. Let me know if you have some other resources that you really enjoy from Gandhi. And when you get a chance, watch some of the videos on YouTube.
Now back to planning this trip to Colombia.
So my dad today sent me an email to check out Nerium. I thought I’d post you some of the information I replied back to him, and well some extra feedback on some tips and tricks to potentially survive the MLM Nerium trap.
Why do I say ‘trap’?
Well it’s no secret, that people in the MLM industry do NOT succeed. But with some little 1%’r ‘secrets’, you can succeed. And at the bottom of this blog post, I’ll share with you some of the tips and tricks, that’s allowed me to personally recruit 129+ people in my various online businesses and earn over $20K on autopilot in various affiliate marketing co’s, MLM companies, info products etc.
Nerium is a great co. It’s profiled on this months Success from Home Magazine, the same business magazine that I brought that card to your house, and then ended up joining Ambit.At the moment, am in about 7 affiliate marketing and MLM businesses, that fill in for the site at http://www.jasonCwaite.com and the 4 other various websites.I think it’s a good idea for you to build it, and or something that promotes health, and has top producers statistically in the MLM top 1,000 world-wide producers, and preferably on the highest rankings within the last 5 years. Old 40 year old distributors to me aren’t that attractive, as the slow model is boring.Here’s a semi-current evaluation of some of the top earners and companies they are promoting: http://www.businessforhome.org/2014/04/top-150-worldwide-earners-in-mlm-april-2014/At the end of the day, you need leverage and freedom. MLM can be a real job, however there’s much to learn from it. So far I’ve got about 125+ teammates in various offers, but I’ve by no means mastered it, nor completely understand it.Good luck. I’ll take a look at it though. Always looking for something to invest in, especially if am already consuming it.
Nerium isn’t a scam. In fact it’s a perfectly legitimate multi-level marketing company. But if your wanting to succeed, your going to want to know how to marketing your business/product, and making money online, versus chasing your friends and family.
Don’t believe your upline. Chasing your friends and family is stupid. Make money online. And make it on autopilot.
One of the weaknesses that I’ve had on the blog is not having a great footer image that captures leads. I’m approximating a 5 – 15%. I didn’t validate this, however I’ve had approximately those results on other websites.
I’ve decided basically to duplicate what I’ve done for my header, except do is similarly to the format that’s on my Empower Network blog.
It’s basically going to have the image, then the various copyright information and a teaser to get people to ‘opt in’ below the footer banner that’s just like, and the same dimensions as the header banner. It extends to the right sidebar.
As well, I believe having a link to other various social media like Facebook, Google +, Twitter, etc, MIGHT help out with the ‘authority’ of the page, as those pages are already ranking nicely in the search engines. It’s a test as well that you all might consider trying.
Note the image that’s clicked sends to a landing page, as well there’s teaser info that’s different from some of the copy on the page to continue the opting in process.
Here’s the information below…
If you have any questions about making money online, click this link.
I believe my personal blog might be different than the Empower Network blog, in the sense that it looks like the banner image is going to fit just like the header, and aligned to the right sidebar, while the copyright information will be centered below the banner image, just like the Empower Network blog.
Hope these blogging tips helped you out. Capturing leads via your website really is key, and small tweaks like these will help you take your personal blog to the next level.
