Healthy Eating for the New Year

by Janet Gomez

The New Year but it is fast approaching though getting through the Christmas period is what most of us are thinking about at the moment. However, straight after it the New Year is with us.

Typically it's the time many of us are regretting the excesses of the Christmas period and thinking about how we can improve on our eating habits and get healthy for the New Year. In anticipation of these thoughts I'm going to share with you nine of my favourite tips that can be used during the holiday period and beyond!

Choose attractive foods. Remember we start "eating" with our eyes and if the eyes are happy, our stomachs and our mind are more likely to feel satisfied more quickly.

Eat meals at the same time each day. With regularity comes stability at all levels.

Allow a minimum of 3 hours between meals to allow the previous meal to digest properly and leave the stomach before having the next one. Ideally wait to feel at least a little hungry before eating.

Drink plenty of non-sparkling water between meals and sip warm water with meals only if thirsty. Drinking too much fluid with meals dilutes digestive juices so that our meal will take longer to digest and/or won't digest properly.

Eat warm organic freshly-prepared local seasonal food. Avoid reheating food if possible. Ideally only cook as much as you need to eat for each meal and enjoy it soon after it has been prepared.

Make lunch (between 12 and 3pm) the main meal of the day. According to Ayurveda this is the time when your digestive capacity is at its highest. So you'll digest what you eat more easily and more quickly!

Eat dinner early, around 7pm, especially if it contains raw food. In Ayurveda, it is known that raw food takes more energy to digest than cooked food.

Eat light and warm meals in the evening,

Eat a variety of food and in moderation. Variety is the spice of life and quality instead of quantity keeps the digestive system happy.

What next? Put aside enough time to prepare and eat food calmly. Observe how you feel after each meal. What is your energy like?

Desperation Generates BAD Leads

by Paula Pollock

Have you ever had a slow month or a slow quarter and starting feeling desperate? It's a scary place to be, but we've all been there. The unfortunate byproduct of declining revenue is desperation and its evil spawn - poor quality leads. And if you allow yourself to believe these leads are potential customers, you will continue the downward spiral where these fictitious prospects 'kick-the-tires', waste your time, rarely convert and if they do, become nightmare clients that take you in directions you never wanted to go.

Quality Starts with You - Envision yourself at a shopping center with two escalators: one going up and the other going down. The highly successful businesses have learned that allowing their focus to waiver towards desperation is like taking the first step onto the down escalator. It's going to move them to a place they do not want to be and they know it. They catch themselves the second the doubt arrives and they mentally squash it immediately and take a step on the 'up' escalator - even if it's a small, tentative step.

Crystal Clear Targets - Humans have a tendency to want to keep options open. We don't want to make decisions quickly or at all, sometimes. We want it all. Choices mean saying no to something. Regarding clients, it translates into too broad a target. You've heard me and practically everyone else in marketing tell you how important having a niche is. Well, it's even more important in targeting and attracting quality leads. How can your best possible prospect choose your company if you're trying to make the entire world happy? If they don't think you are solely interested in their needs, they will move onto some company who will.

Attract, Assess, Adjust, Repeat - To assure your success in generating quality leads you must dedicate yourself to the process. Just sending out a single sales letter, writing your website once and forgetting it or running a static ad once is an utter waste of money. You need to monitor the performance of your tactics constantly. And if they are attracting the wrong prospects, you need to adjust something. Even when you attract the right leads, then you need to continue to adjust but now for quantity.

Are You Using These Traits of Successful Entrepreneurs?

by Deborah A. Bailey

There are a lot of people who are starting businesses these days, and often they're coming from the corporate environment. It may seem much more desirable to be your own boss after experiencing a job loss, but it takes more than a business plan to have success. You also have to consider the transition you're making from a regular paycheck to having an income that may have its ups and downs.

If you're going into entrepreneurship and still holding on to the belief that it's the same as being employed (except without benefits and job "security") - you will find yourself in a very limiting position. Having your own business will force you to develop certain traits that will help you transition from employee to CEO. Once you master those, you will be in an excellent position to build a successful business.

Are you using any of these in your business?

Creating a Vision

  • What do you really want to do? What do you feel is your purpose?

  • Where is your passion?

  • Can you picture yourself in your ideal situation?

Connecting with your creativity

  • Think outside of the box - take risks

  • Don't make future decisions based on past experiences

  • Be open to new approaches

Trusting your intuition

  • What do you feel is the right action to take?

  • Listen to your "inner voice" when making decisions

  • Trust that you know what's best for you

Taking Action

  • Make a decision once you have the information that you need

  • Be proactive instead of being a victim of circumstances

  • Not making a decision is also a decision!

Who Will Lead You to Success in 2010?

by Marquesa Pettway

Yes, you can do it by yourself...but without accountability, struggle and a lack of commitment pop up regularly. I truly believe that individuals that recruit a mentor/coach are serious about getting to the next level professionally and personally. Studies show that people who have the structure, accountability and support from a mentor/coach are generally more successful and complete their goals.

In this article, I share tips for choosing a mentor for 2010 that will help accomplish your goals for 2010.

Tip #1
In most cases, a mentor has accomplished a certain level of success that you aspire to reach...this allows you to stay motivated, inspired and educated.

Tip #2
It's really beneficial to you if your mentor has a system or program in place. Making it up as you go along can work in some situations but professional systems get results.

Tip #3
The connection is really important. You need to be able to share the good, bad and ugly with your mentor. It helps to have a good rapport and enjoy communicating with them.

Tip #4
Does your mentor have a mentor? It's important that mentors have someone to hold them accountable. (I call this walking the talk.)

Tip #5
Your mentor needs to stretch you, and at times, make you feel a little uncomfortable. This means challenging you to be your best and pushing you beyond your comfort level.

Think of the tips I shared and choose a mentor/coach for 2010!

Travel Tip for the Holiday Season

by Janet Gomez

With the holiday season coming up many of us are planning to go and visit family and friends. Often our travel plans involve flying, which can be tiring at the best of times. Whenever I fly I order a vegetarian option for the meal since I'm vegetarian. However, I'm going to share with you three good reasons to "go veggie" when you're travelling by plane even if you're not normally vegetarian!

1. We are served first (or before our fellow passengers). In any case this is my experience. It's the same principle of service that you have in a restaurant. It's rare that a large party of people is served before a table of two or three. The same logic seems to work when you're on a plane. You also have more time to enjoy your meals before the plates are cleared away. This means you can take time to chew and savour what you receive. This can be a great bonus if you're travelling with children. The only downside is that it's a bit unfortunate for your fellow meat-eating travellers who have to wait for their row to be served, while you're tucking in.

2. We get the lighter option - meaning that it's lighter on our digestive system. This is definitely the main reason to "go veggie" when flying.
Flying is dehydrating to the whole body. When the body is dehydrated you feel tired and your concentration decreases. Various functions, especially the digestive one, don't work as well as they could. Anything you can do to ease the work your digestive system needs to do when travelling will benefit you tremendously when you arrive at your destination. Other tips to improve digestion while flying include drinking plenty of water before, during and after the flight (warm water is best), and avoiding tea, coffee and alcohol while flying. With improved hydration and the lighter option of the vegetarian meal, you and your family will have much less jet lag when you arrive at your destination and will be able to start enjoying your holiday much more quickly.

3. We have "healthier" options - I always get salad and fruit when I fly. For some reason, airlines presume that if you "go veggie" you want the healthy option so I rarely am served a heavy cake when I take the vegetarian option. By taking in less refined food than the average traveller, our digestive system also functions better - another bonus :) A word of warning for good digestion when flying - keep the fruit to eat a couple of hours after you've had your meal. Fruit digests more quickly than other foods and so should be eaten separately.

Final point - you may find that some airlines seem to be unaware that there are different categories of vegetarians, and that some of us do eat dairy products. Sometimes you may receive margarine to put on your bread roll or crackers, which is a shame after the rest of the meal was so healthy! My opinion is that margarine is not a natural product and does not break down in the body so I just ask for butter, and if they have it, the airline gives it to me. And if not, I am fine about going without. It's a small price to pay for all the other perks of "going veggie" when flying!

What's next?

1. Call your travel agent/airline and book for a vegetarian meal option. Although many airlines now offer one you'll have different vegetarian options to choose from if you book it advance and also there's a greater chance of your having your chosen meal.
2. Remember to check that the meal has been confirmed when you check in!
3. Take some fruit or a nut and raisin mix just in case!

Women Entrepreneurs - The Secrets of Success for Wednesday, December 9th



Paula Pollock

Even before the economy took a turn, Paula Pollock saw that most upper level marketing managers spent less than 10% of their time actually creating marketing that generates leads. That’s marketing’s job after all and yet, no one was doing it. The Pollock Marketing Group started out of necessity when the telecommunications industry was imploding with layoffs and she began writing marketing plans for friends with new business ideas when she wasn’t working or taking care of her infant son. When her pink slip arrived she took her business full-time, again by necessity. After years of freelance consulting, she formed the agency that exists today: offering a one-stop resource for custom lead generation. In addition to private consulting and marketing outsource services, they offer end-to-end marketing project work for all size businesses. With over twenty years of corporate sales and marketing experience, Paula offers knowledge and value that few can match. Resources, videos and free marketing tips are available at paulapollock.com.
