Can A Business Mentor Really Help You Become Successful?

Back in the day, direct marketing was really what we would call a “door-to-door” salesman or saleswoman. Some of the early direct selling companies were Avon, Tupperware, Shaklee, Amway and MaryKay. Over the years this industry has become increasingly popular because of the low cost to get involved and the flexibility it offers.

According to the Direct Selling Association (DSA), in 2016 20.5 million people in the United States were involved in direct sales, and 5.3 million were building an independent business through managing customers, sales and recruits Direct selling is not a new industry, but it’s seen a resurgence over the past few years as people are looking for opportunities to earn extra income or build a business outside a typical 9-5 job. Staring a direct sales business requires minimal start up costs but commitment, time and effort to become successful, just as it would building a company from the ground up.

As a direct seller you’re an entrepreneur and your own boss. Benefits include working when, where and how to you so you can be present for your family and pursue other interests. The majority of people in direct sales work from a home office, which presents its own unique set of challenges: scheduling work versus home time and keeping your business organized without having someone help you manage your time. There is a plethora of information available in written form, online and in books, but having a dialog with someone who has had similar experiences, made mistakes and continued to be successful is invaluable. A mentor can help you develop your own business voice and direction, and everyone, from the person just starting out to the leader of a large organization, benefits from mentoring. Here are four reasons you can benefit from a mentor or a business coach.

1. Identifying How to be Successful

Detox Your Home with Essential Oil Cleaning Recipes

One of the easiest ways to eliminate toxins and synthetic chemicals from your home plus save money is by making your own cleaning solutions. Recipes are simple and use ingredients that are easy to find and affordable. You can find these base ingredients at most grocery stores or large online retailers:

  • Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) for grease, odors and dirt
  • Distilled vinegar for disinfecting (never mix vinegar with baking soda or hydrogen peroxide; avoid using on natural stone and wood surfaced)
  • Borax (sodium borate) solvent for grease, stains and grime
  • Washing soda (sodium carbonate) solvent for grease, mineral stains and dirt

  • Hydrogen peroxide for disinfecting

A variety of essential oils can be used for cleaning, but these six are often used for because of their purported antibacterial and germicidal properties:

  • Tea Tree
  • Lemon
  • Sweet Orange
  • Peppermint
  • Eucalyptus
  • Lavender

Keep soft, washable cloths on hand for wiping surfaces; many people recommend microfiber clothes, which you can usually purchase in bulk online.

4 Reasons Meditation is the Missing Piece to Overall Wellness

Meditation has been part of our spiritual journey for centuries, but it wasn’t until the 1960s meditation gained mainstream notoriety in the west as a means of self-improvement. In modern times, meditation has become a part of a well-rounded wellness routine along with healthy diet and regular exercise. Meditation is a simple concept: sit still, breathe deeply and focus on a single point or intention for a short amount of time. As easy as it sounds, it can be difficult to schedule time alone to practice or keep your mind from wandering to your mental to-do list. After reading how meditation can positively effect your mind and body, I promise you’ll want to clear your calendar for a mere ten minutes each day to receive all the mental and physical benefits meditation has to offer.

Anti-aging

Stress causes hormone imbalance, which in turn can manifest itself in skin problems like acne, dry skin and rash. Depending on severity, skin issues can negatively affect our self-esteem and perception of ourselves. Relaxation and meditation are well-documented remedies for reducing the body’s stress response.  Mediation can also reduce inflammatory promoting genes, which can decrease the skin’s signs of aging like wrinkles and dark spots. Studies have also shown meditation to reduce blood pressure and increase blood flow; increased blood flow boosts the amount of oxygen and nutrients carried to cells, overtime.

Pain Relief

Incorporating mindful meditation into your daily routine could have long-term positive effects for pain management. Chronic pain sufferers often rely on opioid treatments for pain management just to be able to complete basic daily tasks. There is a large list of long-term side effects of opiate use including addiction and liver or brain damage. A promising study published in the Journal of Neuroscience showed participants in the meditation group’s pain ratings decreased by up to 24% compared to the non-meditating participants.

How to Make Mom Feel Like a Million Bucks

Every woman wants to feel cherished, loved and appreciated. According to a survey done by the Daily Mail with 2,000 women in 2013, receiving a compliment from a friend or spouse was the biggest confidence booster, followed by having perfect hair and looking good in pictures.

The study revealed that having a good night's sleep, a cuddle, being told "I love you" and a smile from a stranger were also guaranteed to make a woman feel happy about herself.

It also found that four out of ten women get an immediate confidence boost if they look good in a photo. Another 40 percent say they feel great after getting a night of good sleep.

While 60 percent of women follow a strict beauty regime to ensure they leave the house feeling confident, 38 percent only need a cuddle from a child, partner, relative or friend to feel loved for the rest of the day.

Women also get an esteem boost when others ask them where they bought something they are wearing, such as a sweater or purse. Another thing women love is when they’re asked who their hairdresser is or what brand of makeup they use!
