Spooky Halloweeeen

Happy Halloween!

Well the year is progressing, as usual! Today is Halloween.... and while we don't usually dress in costumes, we do enjoy seeing all the kids dressing up. Before you know it, it will be 2014!


View of Sanoviv

We went to Sanoviv in Mexico this month. We followed up on our progress and really enjoyed ourselves. All of us!The view from the property is just stunning, as you can see here on the left. Being there is like being on a retreat. We really appreciated the delicious food as well. Here you see a picture of a delicious omelet with avocado and creamy tomato sauceFood of Sanoviv. One of the great things we learned there was a drink to make to start the day.

Before you eat anything, Squeeze the juice of half a lemon and put it in a glass with a cup of hot water, drink it up! It won't wake you up, but it sure will make you feel good!

There are many benefits to drinking this as it helps to get your body going in the morning by:

  • Helps to jumpstart taste buds
  • Can stimulate and aid elimination in digestion
  • Helps destroy putrefactive bacteria in both intestines and the mouth
  • Purify’s the breath
  • Benefits the liver among others

You might think lemon is too acidic, however, it is actually helpful in getting the body to an alkaline state. When you add water (nature's solvent), it is the perfect way to start your day. You can also add a pinch of cayenne pepper for increased benefits, as the cayenne increases the blood flow to all parts of your body, increases your metabolism, and helps improve cell structure. For more information about the benefits of cayenne, check this link.

After the trip, we entertained ourselves in old town San Diego. The whole group joined in the fun, which really made a perfect wrap up for the trip. Hanging out in San Diego

The program at Sanoviv is really great, we learn a lot, get some good rejuvenation and really got to relax. We sure hope you think of joining us next year. The benefits are tremendous. Consider making it part of your self-care routine!

BANG Meeting & Hand Analysis

About our Hands

This month, the Business Accelerated Network Group (BANG) was great fun!

This month, Richard Unger was there and he provided everyone a detailed hand analysis.

In 1985, Richard founded the International Institute of Hand Analysis in Marin, California and currently serves as its Director.

The mission of the institute is:

  • To teach hand analysis as a profession or as an adjunct to a profession
  • To teach the philosophy of Life Purpose and Soul Psychology
  • To provide a forum for the exchange of information, ideas, research and support

He did not know any of us, and yet we found him to be very accurate in his analysis of us during our ten minute session. We were very surprised to learn what our hands and fingerprints revealed about us, and what our life path is, or could be.

My take away was when the light bulb went off and I finally saw how important it is for me to follow what my inner voice has been saying. Sometimes I can ignore all that great direction. I am making a conscious point to pay attention now.

We all need to be who we are, and stop resisting the direction we are receiving from our higher self. Trust your inner voice and follow it with faith. You will be surprised how helpful it is!

Private Lending Trip

This last weekend, Al had fun reconnecting with other private lenders in his group with George Antone and Wealth Classes. Al spent time sharing experiences with the participants who all deal with private lending. The groups discussed many different topics and had some really great guest speakers. Some of the key concepts highlighted in the speeches were:

  • The importance of Lifestyle as the journey is not only about working but also, remembering to have fun along the way to increase the quality of your life!
  • Private Lending compliance - how to keep you and all parties involved protected... (original: Knowing more about Private Lending Compliance to keep safe and protected for all parties involved
  • What to do when a deal goes bad, and how to mitigate your risk to minimize any potential negative impact should the deal go awry. Also, how to learn from others mistakes.
  • How to use your asset protection, the Bankers Shield, which protects your assets. Also, learned what steps to take and when. There was another bit of good information on how to set up and structure your private lending business properly to work both internationally and in the United States.

Till next month... we will be sending thanksgiving love to all! Enjoy the holidays everyone!
