To spree or not to spree, that is the question

We all need sales. Anyone sellling anything needs sales. But how does one go about it. Of course, the traditional ways, pounding the pavement, and going door to door. No one likes to do that though. Today door to door salesmen are seen as intrusive and sometimes shady. Online sales are bogged down by the number of wahm women wanting to gain an income for their families. Who can blame them, it is a cruel world in the corporate arena. And getting nastier. The online arena is becoming increasingly popular, and tougher to gain just a 2.00 sale. Therefore, women have turned to spree and shopping groups to try to keep up with their monthly, quarterly or yearly quotas. But are these groups functional and productive? The goal of direct sales, in my opinion is to make some extra money. Unless you have a downline of 400 people, who have the same goal as you, the direct saleswoman will only make some spare change. This is one reason these groups have become popular. However, being in these groups doesn't guarentee anyone a sale. Many times women/men will drop out without putting the agreed sale into the consultant that is due the sale. Being in these groups does not guarentee you repeated sales either. I've been in shopping and spree groups. It is like back peddaling into an upstream river. Albeit, the group of well intentioned woman is to help one another, it rarely turns out that way. And what if someone is dissatisfied with you, then they go to the proverbial complaint dept, and complain as to what they deem as inapropriate. Sometimes it can be very disconcerting if the complaint isn't warranted. The key to any sale is in getting a person to like and trust you. One does this by communication. Talking to people 1, 2, or 3 at a time will help develop a bond and actually get someone to buy your product. Joining a shopping or spree group just puts a bandaid on a growing problem of quotas, and a bad economy.Carole

This is too much

I've been a democrat much of my life. I am a liberal, but I think more on the conservative side. In any case, I did subscribe to one of those liberal newsletters. It was too much, too all assuming, too ridiculous. Not one of us knows how long we will live, what genes we will end up with. To say the white house could be in jeopardy because JOHN MCCAIN might get dementia is assuming much to much in my opinion. I don't get into politics or discuss it to much, but this and a networking site just has me over the edge with their assumptions! Take a look.

McCain Owes America An Alzheimer's Test
While Ted Kennedy and Michelle Obama were rocking the Democratic convention in Denver, John McCain made his 13th appearance with Jay Leno to joke about his age.
But McCain's age is no joke. He will turn 72 on Friday and would be halfway to 73 if elected and sworn in on January 20. That would make him the oldest first-term President ever, two years older than Ronald Reagan. He has survived four skin cancers (melanomas), including one in 2000 that was classified as Stage IIa.
McCain is two years older than his father was when he died suddenly of a heart attack at 70. He is 11 years older than his grandfather was when he died suddenly of a heart attack at age 61.
The United States cannot afford the risk that McCain would die suddenly in the middle of an international crisis.
Nor can we afford the risk of dementia. 22% of Americans over 70 are affected by mild cognitive impairment, while 13% of Americans over 65 have Alzheimer's. Ronald Reagan was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at age 83, but early signs were evident during his first term. Britain's "Iron Lady" Margaret Thatcher developed dementia at age 75.
McCain has never had an Alzheimer's test, even though he has 6 of the 10 warning signs , including his inability to remember recent facts like the number of homes he owns, the $1M lawsuit he filed in 1990, or the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003.
John McCain owes America a thorough test for Alzheimer's and cognitive impairment long before Election Day.

Needless to say, I didn't sign the petition. Must be my Alzheimers kicking in.

Spotlight on Mineral Makeup

With so many Mineral Make up companies out there.....

How do you know which one to choose? Does Freebie sound good? How about free shipping with orders over $15? Furthermore how about some tips on how to use our makeup for you? Take a look below.

Flawless Foundation Coverage In 7 Steps
1. Start with a clean, dry face. If you feel you need extra moisturizer, apply first and wait ten minutes before applying Monet Minerals. Or, for extra coverage, you can mix some of your moisturizer and Monet Minerals Foundation on the top of your hand and apply it like liquid makeup using your fingertips. This way works great as a liquid concealer.
2. If you wear concealer, use a concealer brush and apply it first (your mineral foundation can be used as a concealer).
3. Unscrew the cover to your Mineral Foundation and place your Kabuki brush over the sifter holes. Gently turn it upside down and shake it so that some of the minerals get on to the brush.
4. Turn your Kabuki brush upside down and tap the handle on a counter or other hard surface, allowing the minerals to settle down into the brush.
5. Apply to your face and neck using circular strokes. Do not buff into your skin. Nothing should ever be forced into your pores.
6. Allow Monet Minerals to work with the warmth of your skin for 10 minutes. If at that time you need more coverage, repeat.
7. If you would like a finished matte look, end with one of Monet’s Mineral Veils. Veils can also be used as a foundation if you need less coverage.

tips are from MONET MINERALS mineral makeup company.
