Learn How To Find/Maintain A Good Relationship

These relationships we make and raise children in are pretty important.

 I know I'm stating the obvious but sometimes we just don't put the time or understanding into our partnerships or dating life and it has such a huge impact when these things go wrong. I know from first, second and third hand experience!

 Are you a woman who, despite years of personal growth, is still perplexed by men and the ways they think and behave?

 Do you fear that the “right” man who will honor your strength, wisdom and beauty may not exist?

 Or that the man you’re with now just doesn’t “get you?”

 What you may be missing is what my brilliant friend and colleague, Alison Armstrong, calls “The Queen’s Code” — a way of claiming your power and relating to men that brings out the best in both of you, leading to far more fulfilling relationships.

 Alison has taught thousands of women these secrets and you can discover them for yourself in Discovering the Queen’s Code: How to Honor Yourself & Transform the Way You Relate to Men.

 This powerful virtual event is FREE. Please join me on Wednesday, October 5, by reserving your complimentary space here.

 If you don’t know Alison, she’s a world-renowned relationship expert.

The Queen’s Code is based on her remarkable book of the same title, hailed as a complete game-changer for women — like you — who are seeking a loving, committed and conscious relationship.

 Alison is insightful and funny, and she’ll show you how to shift your core beliefs about men and really enter their minds….

 Here’s what you’ll discover:
 The Queen’s Code for understanding and communicating with men, which allows you to stand in your power and honor yourself without disempowering them Secrets of the male “operating system” — so you no longer misinterpret their intentions, words and actions, and instead understand what makes them tick

Ways to become more magnetic and improve your relationships with men on the job, in your community and in your extended family

What habit you may be repeating that triggers men’s inner warrior (not in a good way!) —

and how to respond effectively to this reaction Key insights into why interacting with men may have been so challenging for you — and how you can turn things around I can assure you that Alison knows what she’s talking about!

She’s really mastered the complexities of relationships and I think you’ll learn a lot from her.

 P.S. Have you had enough “wrong” relationships to last two lifetimes? Alison Armstrong will guide you to transform the ways you relate to men!

 Registration is free! Just click here: Discovering the Queen’s Code: How to Honor Yourself & Transform the Way You Relate to Men. A recording will be provided later to all who register, whether or not you listen to the scheduled event.

Karma Is A Biz Team

How Karma Is A Biz Team Works

Karma Is A Biz has 3 separate levels.

1. Team
2. Mentorship
3. Membership (which also has 3 levels)

Currently our Team and Mentorships(4) are open.  Waiting lists for the mentorship and membership are also open, just apply to the team and when you answer question number 3 add that you have a business or want to start one and which waiting list you'd like to be added to.

To apply for the team click on the link here!

The terms of the Team works like this:

You will receive a link to a private page where you will have a number of different activities you can do to help your people, receive free products/coaching yourself(and discounts of programs/products) and potentially earn money.

Karma Is A Biz Team is great for someone who wants to help others but is too busy or uninterested in fully committing to this work.

It's also great for someone who may want to help others as a career or as a part-time job or side hustle but you also would like to gain more experience, support, or explore different ways in which you could help people, either through techniques or modalities.  You might also not know how to start and gaining this experience can help you to make a difference, see how it feels and discover the ways that work best for you if you were to go out on your own.

The Team will help get the word out about programs and products that will greatly help our overall humanity.  It could be through social media, graphic design or any other number of campaign strategies.  There is no commitment to reach a certain number or to participate at any particular time, but if you enjoy sharing your personal growths and appreciation of products/programs that have helped you or if you enjoy sharing your enthusiasm for improving humanity and our world in any way it could be a great experience for you to help and receive the incentives that come along with your help.

Mentorship is for those in the second group, who also would like personal assessments and trainings to help you devise your own strategy, freelance for others or find contracts based on what you've done with us.  With a mentorship you will receive different modules of education to help you understand the process of running or managing different aspects of a service/seeker based business (one in which the greater good of humanity is at it's core).  You will also receive certifications, a letter of thorough, personalized recommendation and coaching sessions in which you'll receive practice working with other businesses and figuring out your ultimate path.

Membership is for those who have a business or they are currently ready to engage in start-up mode. Through membership we support you in creating business relationships, relationships with your current clients/customers, relationships with potential clients/customers and in establishing or innovating the culture and communication style in your business and/or community/field to create sustainable leadership status, engagement and impact in your core mission, as well as your financial core growth. Our strategy is all about solid planning, networking, communication/engagement, content, loyalty following through on your core mission.  This is what will make you stand out, have outstanding support, survive difficulties and actually achieve regular satisfaction and morale within and surrounding your work.

Getting Straight About Writing

Two good posts for the writers out there:

One of the most important parts of being a writer is having readers.  Early readers are very important to career.  This post talks about it:

This next post talks about the next part of the process of a professional writer.  There is great advice here about the business of being published:

And if you're a writer with an online presence, this is some good advice on getting your online readership growing:

Finally, I just want to show a writer's blog that I think is a good example of a good writer's blog:

Let me know what you think about these and if any of them help you out on your writer's path!  Happy writing in 2014!

How To Help Your Grown-up Child

Got a job/career?  Let your teen or adult child help you or learn from you or a co-worker.

Got a business?  Train your child and let them take some control.

Lately this is something I've been thinking about a lot.  With the economy the way it is, it's tough to not notice a lot of relationship struggles taking place alongside the economic.

A lot of adult children live with their parents, and while I don't think that in itself is an issue at all, it can be when either of the following is true:
1. The child is under or unemployed
2. The child has been out on their own before and would rather not live with parents
3. The parents want the child to move out
4. The parents want the child to learn, work or "apply themselves" in a way the child doesn't want to
5. The child is starting a business
6. The child has children
7. The parents are starting a business or work from home
8. There's massive debt and bills between them
9. There are other adult children or dependents living in the house

You get it.  Some families choose to live together past the standard 18-22 because it works well and they all want it to be that way.  Sometimes this is not the case.  Sometimes the adult child isn't even living in the house but is still somehow a dependent.

The issues regarding these situations be balanced.  I certainly don't have all the answers but I know that underemployed, unemployed, self-employed, entrepreneurs, single parents, one-income families, etc. are full of experiences and skills.  Any moderately healthy adult has lived long enough to do something of help to the family.

If the adult child is not bringing in any or enough money, I think it's a good idea as a parent to give them some extra support.  More than likely you know some opportunities, you know people, you have skills and resources that your children are unaware of, so why not make the connections?

If you help your child get training to do something you're familiar with or someone you know and trust is an expert on for free, that may be the thing that helps your child get ahead of their current struggles.

Without naming any names I know a few families.
One of those families owns a business.  A local business.  They trained their children to work for them when they were teenagers, but they barely paid them, it was more of a family demand than a job, so their children also worked various fast food and retail jobs as teens.

The parents also work regular 9-5 jobs.  Two of the kids are now in college and one graduated from college a few years ago.

When one child comes home from school, he works a menial job.  The older graduated child got a regular 9-5 job but then was fired.  He wants to help his parents business but they won't let him.  He also wants to go back to school or somehow learn to take this skill that the family business is based on and make it more of an artistic and professionally opportunity for himself.  He wants to take the business and his skills to the next level and make it more than local, but he needs a little support and permission from his parents.

They encouraged him to get another job in another field that is uninteresting to him.  Why are jobs somehow better than self-led work for so many people?  Why not encourage people to make their own way?

Anyway, on the other hand there is another family member in this family who tried to come up with a plan with the son who wanted to take over a part of the family business. This family member has a lot of skills in growing businesses and marketing, though none of the technical skills.  The parents also shot down this member of the family (who was like a child to them).

I know a couple other families with very similar stories.  It leaves me wondering, if parents want to help their adult children to be more financially stable, why not start at home, where they are, with what they already know or can be learned easily through regular family interactions?

How helpful is it to continuously hold on to the ideas of testing children with independence with small bits of abandonment poured on top of each other.  Parenting doesn't end at the age of 18 or 22 or whenever the child graduates.  Rather they are financially stable or not, children will still need their parents support, especially during those first years of working and trying to support themselves, switching careers, losing jobs, finally finding your passion, trying to make your own way.

Do your kids have something to fall back on, if and probably when their first course of financial independence falls through?  Something you can and will support them in developing, training or starting of their own volition and by allowing them to share their own skills to make a project uniquely their own?

If you have work or resources, would you encourage your child to share their solutions, expertise and learn enough to give them a grounded approach to starting something where it's most comfortable to start...with people you know, love, trust.  Parents, grandparents, family friends? I don't suggest parents go out of their way to hold their child's hand step-by-step, but to maybe walk together to that place where they can discover and make an impact.

Maybe, we should start doing these things long before children reach adulthood.  Maybe that first 5-year-old business idea should be thought of as more than a dream, but as an opportunity to learn, make an impact, to make their own way.  Why not indulge these tiny pieces of trust, rather than push them away leaving holes of abandonment that may eventually leave a huge gash in your relationship?

What would you suggest to families in this situation?
