I had a most amazing weekend. Between my marathon training, meeting with friends to catch up and share good times, planning a trip to Africa sometime over the next 6 months to a year, attending a wonderful Sunday service at the spiriatual center I attend, meeting with two women who run the horse rescue our little Dustin’s mother was rescued by (well, at 2 months little Dustin is not so little anymore) and enjoying time in my garden it was as close to a perfect weekend as I could have asked.
It started with a great training on Saturday. At 6 a.m. I met Jackie (my mentor) at Spencer’s Butte for our 15 mile speed/power walk. Wow! What an exhilarating feeling it was to complete the 15 miles.
Not only did we accomplish a great energy balancer, we had a wonderful conversation about the fundraising aspect of the marathon. I have raised nearly 80% of my targeted goal. I can’t thank those who contributed enough. Without you, I could not have done this. In order top continue to raise funds I have a great opportunity for you to access the MP3 and transcripts from a call I did with Amy Scott Grant called The Shortest Path to Abundance.

Back to Saturday. Later that day I went to an event at a local park. I connected with many friends I haven’t talked to in some time. When I shared what I had done earlier in the day, many asked if I was exhausted. “Not really,” was my response. Why? I learned a long time ago if I am going to do something, do it right.
From the very beginning of my training back in May, I was taught specific things I can do to minimize pain, injury and over training.
BathWhen I do a long session my coach recommends I take a very cold bath (as cold as I can stand it). I was also told eat something really healthy within 45 minutes of the training. This is in addition to the fueling I am doing while training. Every 45 – 60 minutes I consume glucose and carbs. This prevents me from “hitting the wall” and having my energy shut down.
The most amazing part is by doing what I am trained to do I have not had any injuries, my energy replenishes quickly and I feel great.
The more I train the more I relate the experience to business. Lots of people go into business and flounder. Why? Because they try to figure it all out by themselves or they get advice from the wrong people.
I would no more take marathon advice from someone who is a couch potato than I would take business advice from someone who has not “earned the right.” Over the years I have had some amazing business mentors. Mentors who had “been there, done that.”

Have I had people try to give advice without knowing what they are talking about? Oh yes! It’s amazing how many people will offer insights without a clue as to what they are talking about.
Take making money on the Internet. Why in the world would someone listen to anyone who has not proven they know what they are doing and has made money on the Internet before listening to them?
Sadly, this happens all the time.
What happens when we listen to people who don’t know what they are talking about is we can get led astray? We waste time, money and energy.
I have had countless numbers of people who come to me after they have been ill advised and ask what they can do to make money on the Internet. Many come to me in a state of massive frustration, fear and financial upheaval. I only wish they had inquired sooner. Likely they would have realized that not everyone who says they can teach them about making money is really qualified.
In answer to the many inquiries and really wanting people to learn easy to apply strategies I wrote a very comprehensive report on how to make your first $100 with a simple report.
To assure that people really get as much information as possible in the shortest amount of time as possible anyone who gets my special report will also get a seat into my one hour teleseminar on how to develop money making information products.
I priced the report as low as possible in order that as many people who are serious about this can have access to the information.
If you have been wondering how to “crack the code” I would highly recommend you click this link http://www.streetsmartsmarketing.com/ReportProductDevelopment.htm and get my report. I can assure you, it will be one of the best choices you make for your business.
Check out what several leading experts have said about the report. You will find their comments on the information page.
For anyone who is planning to market your book online I have a super report on how to become an online bestseller. As with the previous report you will also get a seat into the teleseminar. http://www.streetsmartsmarketing.com/bestsellerreport.htm

Be watching for information on the Horse Rescue non profit we are going to be helping to get the word out about. Sandy and Barb are doing some amazing things for abandoned and abused horses. More to follow on this in coming weeks.
