A preposition is the wrong thing to end a sentence with. But not really: Most of us don’t speak so stiffly that we’d say, “Grammar lovers are a group of which I’d like to be a part.” It’s cool to say, “Grammar lovers…they’re a group I’d like to be part of.” According to Patricia T. O’Conner, author of Woe Is I, the rule probably stems from the word’s meaning: “preposition” means “position before.” (She also notes that both Milton and Shakespeare ended plenty of sentences with prepositions and they did pretty well for themselves…)
It’s “should have” as in, “I should have paid more attention to my kindly English comp teacher.” (Same goes for “could of” and “would of.”)
This one I see a lot from native English speakers and always wondered. Now I know which one is correct
The other day I corrected an british man.
It was my Tuesday morning (early morning like 8 am) Entrepreneur Meetup group. After the meeting and most people had already left, I was chatting with Maria.
James, one of the attendees came over to us, ready to leave and said: “Can I give you my card?”.
And I said: “May I, because you are physically capable of giving us your card. The question is, may you (interrupt us)”.
He had to laugh because he as a native had to be corrected by a non-native english speaker. He said that not me
Of course it was all in good fun. We certainly had good laugh at it.

Happy New Year and an enchanted 2015 to you and your loved ones!
When I first started with Empower Network soon they were talking about a 90 day blogging challenge. Without prizes and nobody „controlled“ whether you did it.
More over, nobody told us to share our blog posts. Back in those days I had not discovered the Facebook groups yet and I don’t think anybody else in the company/team did.
Eventually people did discover the Facebook groups. They even discovered that you can send a 3-line message via email to about 300 groups at once!
Then they shared this strategy and more people started doing it.
Eventually Facebook black listed and banned the Empower Network domain. Though I recently discovered the banning was lifted.
Now, there are syndication groups, more and more you have to comment on other people’s blogs in order to share your blog which I think is a really good idea. I did the same for my syndication group.
For one you get to see other peoples blogs (the layout and all) and for the other you see what kind of content they share, what kind of call to action they use.
Especially for a beginner that’s awesome, if you see something you like, you can use it (steal, model…). And it gives you ideas.
Comments are key nowadays for ranking on mighty Google. But they should be related to the blog post. All those spammy comments I get on my Xarahsblog.com (your ordinary WordPress blog with a really old theme but I like it so I’m keeping it as long as it works) are no use. So I rather delete them. But at least it tells me that particular blog post got indexed on Google
After about 2 years I think I had about 600 blog posts. But no comments. No wonder, eh?
I started last year in December to be more active in those syndication groups. Commenting on 3-5 blog posts and now also getting comments. Getting read, you know?
Now, this new 21 day blogging challenge that started on the 29th, or the 31st – depending whom you ask – is different. There is a group specifically for this (though it seems people are only posting the link and not commenting).
Apparently the new Kalatu blogging platform is counting the posts, too.
I’m still on the old „Blogbeast“ so there is no counting. Only I count
The question is, should I start a new blog for this, with a new topic? Or just pick one of the half dozen that I already have (on the same platform), or my Xarahsblog?
For now I’m posting winter pics on this blog here. But I also have a passion blog: Xena Warrior Princess (a TV show in the 90ties). Even though the show has been off the air (but for reruns) for over 15 years, the community is still going strong. And have annual events. Though the rumor has it, this year (February) is going to be the last one. But then, the organizers said the same 4-5 years ago.
Anyway, I have added some content to that blog Xenaverse.net but not regularly. I’ve decided to use my passion blog for the 21 day challenge and add every day something. Music videos. Pictures from my trip to New Xeland and visit of the set. I just have to go hunt those pics down. LOL
The trip happened in the last century, pre-digitized and pre-smartphone times. Hm, where did I put those pictures….
But I also want to add content to this here blog, maybe every other day.
Let’s see how that goes.
I’ve read an ebook about the amazing traffic vortex, I guess that’ll be the next post to write about. Interesting concept.
Thanks for reading and commenting
PS: If you don’t have an Empower blog yet, click here to get one, try it for $7 bucks now. Non-techy people love it. Even techy people like it. And the new blogging platform is probably going to blow me out of my warm cozy socks. The issue is not you already having a blog, the issue is, is it making you money yet?
82% of the people who do graduate never work in the profession or field they went to college for.
In this industry, network marketing, affiliate marketing, direct sales, it’s ok to fail. You know? It’s not ok to give up your dreams, by the way, just wanted to throw that in
It’s ok to “fail” and join another business and try it there.
It’s ok to have been in more than one deal.
Dave W wandered Walmart to find people to join his Amway business for 3,5 years! Because his upline kept telling him, talk to just one more person when ever he asked them what to do to become successful.
After 3,5 years wandering Walmart he could count 15 people in his team.
After 3,5 years having 15 people in your team is not a lot and it also does not pay a lot in a traditional network marketing deal.
It looks like he failed, doesn’t it?
What a great and cheep education though that was!
Only a few years ago, he had discovered the internet and now earns more a month than his entire extended family of over 30 people – every month.
Good thing he quit wandering Walmart, eh? And it makes for a good story.
Remember, this is an education industry. We, the good students, who are constantly open to learning will eventually be rich. Hopefully rich with money but certainly rich with knowledge and experiences.
So, what’s easier, wandering around, talking to people or studying?
Frankly, wandering around is retarded and repels the very people you want to bring into the business.
Yet, still to this day this method is being taught. Not by me though and not by the leaders in this my company.
Of course it still works – for the people who like wandering around. But what about the people who get told to wander around, talk to everybody still breathing even though they could chuck up every time they just think about it – and eventually quit this wonderful industry?
Are you done wandering around?

in order to edit them, or to save them on an extral drive.
This is how my business partner Mike Hobbs does it:
Are you having difficulties getting the video files off of your iPhone and onto your MAC computer to edit in ScreenFlow? This tutorial will help!
ScreenFlow is powerful, easy-to-use screencasting software for the Mac. With ScreenFlow you can record the contents of your entire monitor while also capturing your video camera, microphone and your computer audio. The easy-to-use editing interface lets you creatively edit your video, and add additional images, text, music and transitions for a truly professional-looking video.
Maybe “Image Captures comes with ScreenFlow. I don’t know because I don’t have ScreenFlow – yet.
I use iMovie and Screen-o-Matic for screen-capture videos. But since that is not the topic of this blog post…
When I plug my iPhone to my Mac, iPhoto automatically opens. It could be that when I did that the first time I was asked if I always wanted this action to happen.
Now I select the file or the files and click on import. I usually click on delete pictures which makes them delete on my iPhone.
Under “last import” I can see what I just imported to my Mac. I select them and move them (drag and drop) to a folder. That one was a toughie for the longest time. I couldn’t figure out where my imported pictures and videos were at this point. Until one day I just tried to drag and drop.
AND IT WORKED!!!!
Next of course import to iMovie and edit the movie there, add images, music, background sounds. Or just use as is.
The little trick Mike shows with the buttons is pretty clever, makes it easier to either shoot a picture or a video.
Hope this blog post was helpful. Let me know in the comments.
PS: While writing this blog post I was scrolling through my content on my iPhone and found tons of pictures and videos. From my garden, from our national day, from my niece’s wedding… eventually I’m going to have to download them LOL
Don’t get me wrong, I am not sponsoring 3-10 people daily – yet. Still learning
Who do you learn from? Obviously from somebody who is doing it. Let me share David’s hangout with you.

The reason why I want to have an online business, digital versus tangible, is because I – and I’m sure so do you, we want to live our dreams. And I want to work where ever I want and when ever I want.
Who wants to chase friends and family? I don’t.
Who wants to be on the phone all the time? I surely don’t.
Your time has come, discover a world you probably never thought possible.
Congratulations on making a decision to get started right now.

This is literally her dream come true.
You have to see this to believe it so let
me start with the income proof below:
As you can see above she just had her very
best week earning $13,513.10 in income using
this system to do it.
(Sarita’s results are not typcial. Your results will vary.
See income disclosure here.)
Sarita is a stay at home ‘Mum’ of 2 from Perth Australia.
She first got started working with us using this system
in February of this year.
Her dream was not going back to work so she wouldn’t miss out on her children’s lives.
Now today 10 months later she’s earning more
money then she has ever dreamed possible.
Sarita’s story goes to show you…
With a strong big reason why, and the right
system you can achieve what many would
consider “The Impossible.”
I am so proud of Sarita for having the tenacity
to follow her dreams because now she’s positively
impacting the lives of thousands of others.
This is what our worldwide freedom-movement
is all about.
“Changing peoples lives”
In life it’s all about timing and taking massive
action accordingly and there couldn’t be a better
time than right now to MAKE IT HAPPEN.
This is the system we are using to move mountains
in this industry right now.

Did you know? Your home business customers shop with their smartphone. Question: is your business iPhone-friendly? Many network marketers are still trying to bring their businesses into the digital age by opening e-stores that cater to internet shoppers who shop from their home.
As it usually happens, however, customers are way ahead of entrepreneurs who operate network marketing businesses.
Internet shoppers are not only buying from their home, they are researching products and comparing prices on the fly with their iPhones, Androids and BlackBerry Curves.
This is good news for network marketers because it allows us to compete even more effectively with traditional local retail sellers.
Creative direct sellers will use the same methods the big guns use to drive sales. If group bartering, limited-time text sales, and special Facebook deals work for national retailers, why can’t network marketers use them to sell products and recruit team members?
Perhaps the next cool mobile selling strategy will come from the network marketing community.
I am Xarah Dax. I am currently building my residual income network with a variety of methods: old school and cutting edge. If you need a mentor for your home based business, I would love to help you succeed.
I will make sure you avoid the common mistakes new direct sellers often make. Don’t waste your time with trial and error, use my proven methods for home business success.

Are you considering starting your first MLM business? Then is it helpful to understand basic direct selling jargon.
Affiliate: A participant in a network marketing company. Affiliates are also called consultants, independent distributors, associates, and representatives.
Auto-Ship: An automatic shipment (usually monthly) of products. Auto-ship benefits the customer who doesn’t have to remember to place a new order every month.
Auto-ship makes it unnecessary for the distributor to store a lot of inventory in their home.
Compensation Plan: The structure which determines how distributors are paid from their own sales and earn residual income from the sales of the distributors in their downline.
Downline: The people who make up your MLM network. This includes entrepreneurs you recruited or sponsored, (your frontline) and the distributors recruited by the people in your frontline, and so on down the line.
A distributor’s downline is arranged vertically by legs and horizontally by levels. Your frontline is the first level. All the recruits under one person in your frontline is a leg.
Fast Start Bonus: A one-time compensation designed to reward new distributors who start expanding their home and online businesses shortly after joining. This is not available at every Network Marketing company.
Network Marketing: Any business which allows participants to sell products or services directly to customers. Most direct marketing companies also allow participants or distributors, to recruit additional distributors. Network marketing is also called multi-level marketing (MLM), referral marketing, and direct selling.
Distributors earn income from their own sales and also from the sales of their recruits.
Residual Income: Repeating payments earned from work done one time. Some examples: a writer who receives royalties on an e-book sold on an online marketplace. A successful investor who receives stock dividends. Network Marketing is one of the best ways to create residual income streams without having to invest a lot of money up front.
Now you have learned the most important terms in MLM. Now it’s time to ask some questions, like: how much will you earn in your MLM company. Generally a traditional MLM company pays out 50% to the field but that does not mean YOU get paid 50%. You’ll probably get paid 5-10%. You can easily do the math now: how much money do you want to earn? And how many distributors/customers do you need to reach that goal?
Here’s another question I have for you: wouldn’t you rather get paid 70% commissions? Wouldn’t you rather use a system that can help build your new MLM business?
