Multiple Streams of Income

"Don't put all your eggs in one basket"

For as many years as I've been doing network marketing, the quote above has been used by people as justification for joining and promoting more than one mlm program at a time. I know this may be point of contention with some, but for as I've been following the debate the consensus among those who are actually "successful" in network marking is that trying to build more than one mlm downline at a time is counter productive.

I think there's a Better Way to develop Multiple Streams of Income

Obviously, as a proud network marketer I wholeheartedly believe that finding a High Quality Network Marketing program to promote and build, can and should be a solid foundation for anybody who's interested in Earning Extra Income to supplement and enhance their lifestyle.

Without making any explicit income claims, I can tell you that my own experience indicates to me that there's no other way that ONE relationship I form…

Hawaii Sunrise at the Beach

I messed up my sleep schedule badly last night. I fell asleep shortly after work at about 5:30pm, and woke up at midnight. I couldn't go back to bed, so I decided to make the best of it and head down to the beach to take care of something I've been meaning to do for a while now ...

Get some pictures of Honolulu, Waikiki, Diamond Head, etc, as the sun comes up.

Here are a few that I liked. I hope you enjoy.

Aloha til next time,

Pink Hibiscus

It's been awhile since we did the flower thing here on this blog. So, today's Hawaii Picture of the Day is a nice Pink Hibiscus.

I'm embarrassed to say that I forgot some of my elementary school lessons (I went to Hawaii schools from 2nd-7th grades), because I didn't realize until after I'd decided to do this post that the Pink Hibiscus is actually the Hawaii state flower.

Pretty cool ... I've got the Hawaii state flower just out my back door.

Aloha til next time.


Unique Business Ideas

So I'm watching CNN very early this morning, and they were interviewing a couple who run a very unique business ...

It's a dog poop clean up service.

I almost laughed, until they started talking about where their business is at now. They currently have franchises in over 40 territories, and revenue of about $60 Million

What I really loved was how the guy came up with the idea for the business ...

He was stuck in traffic, and was trying to come up with an idea for a business that he and his wife could start. He remembered how much he didn't like cleaning up after his dogs when he was younger, and figured many people might feel the same way.

He said several time during the interview that if you can find something that people don't like doing, but that needs to be done, there might be a good business opportunity.

Makes sense to me.


Hawaii Fireworks Show

As promised, here are a few of the fireworks shows at Hickam AFB and Magic Island. We're lucky living here in Iroquois Point. It's about a 10 minute walk to the beach, where we can see 2 different fireworks shows ...

Magic Island is a bit off in the distance, but the Hickam show is basically right in front of us. Just after those two shows ended, we got another show from Pearl Harbor that we watched on the way home.

I took quite a few pictures, and ended up with a couple that I liked. All shots were from a tripod using my Canon 20D with a Tamron 28-75mm lens. Most were 4 second exposures at F9.0.

I hope you enjoy. Aloha til next time ..


Independence Day at Schofield Barracks

With no kids in the house (mine are in North Carolina, and Ana's are with their dad) we decided that sitting home and watching lifetime movies just wasn't going to be a very good way to spend the 4th of July, so we took a quick jaunt up to Schofield to check out the holiday festivities.

Luckily we were there early, so it wasn't overly crowded. They had some good food booths (we had Puerto Rican BBQ), games for the kids, and several rows of booths selling things. In addition they had a big stage (which you can see in the picture) where Billy Ray Cirrus will be playing later this evening. lol, you wouldn't believe how many 10 year old girls are already there wondering if Miley came too.

We left early to beat the traffic. But fortunately we have a great view of 3 fireworks shows from the beach here at Iroquois Point. I'll post some fireworks pictures tomorrow.

I hope you all had and/or continue to have a fun day.

Aloha til later ..
