How Important is Hydration?

A six-year study published in the May 1, 2002 American Journal of Epidemiology found that those who drink more than 5 glasses of water a day were 41% less likely to die from a heart attack during the study period than those who drank less than two glasses.

Drinking the equivalent of 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45% and drinking ½ your body weight in water per day decreases the risk of breast cancer by 79%

I think the reason why we often don’t give enough importance to hydration is that it is so simple. It is hard for our brain to connect such a profound effect with something as simple as drinking a proper amount of water each day.

So I am not going to argue the point too much – I think 99% of you will agree that drinking enough water on a daily basis is absolutely a good thing. So let’s get into the good stuff: how you can start to directly change the quality of your life with water!

The benefits of hydration

Drinking ½ your body weight in ounces of quality water per day will transform your health and dramatically improve the way you think and feel.

These are the Top 5 Benefits to staying hydrated!

1. Energy! As mentioned above, when we are dehydrated by just 5% most of us will experience a 25-30% loss of energy. And to be honest, I estimate that 90% of us are more than 5% dehydrated.  When was the last time you truly drank enough water during the day?  And when you did, how good did you feel?!

When we are dehydrated we get headaches, foggy thinking, fatigue in our mind and our body, mood swings, we overeat, our metabolism grinds to a halt, we underachieve and we lose motivation.

Water is needed for almost every body metabolic function – it is simply vital that we stay hydrated. When we are dehydrated our body just cannot do it’s job and our energy and mental state will suffer as a result.

Fatigue is a hydration problem. If you’re feeling tired drink several glasses of water over the next 90 minutes and see how you feel then!


2.  Weight Loss! Our brain literally does not distinguish between the sensations of thirst and hunger. Both are derived from the same place – low energy levels (linking it to point 1, above). When we experience these low energy levels the sensations of thirst and hunger are generated at the same time, and we instinctively assume that regardless of the driver, both of these sensations are ‘the need to eat’. In other words we eat food even when the body needs water.


By staying hydrated we separate these two messages and often eat a lot less – the right amount.


3. Clear Skin! When you start to stay hydrated and consume ½ your body weight in ounces of water per day you will also begin to notice some dramatic changes to your skin.


Problems such as acne, dryness, eczema, psoriasis and more will start to disappear. Why?  When dehydrated, the body preserves the water supply to critical organs, such as the brain and the heart, but “cuts off water” to peripheral organs such as skin.


Being hydrated also ensures that your body’s cells are able to function effectively, for nutrient absorption, blood building and circulating and to help the body remove toxins.


4. Alkalinity & pH Balance! When you drink clean, filtered water with a pH of at least 8.5+ you will notice that you begin to feel a surge of health, energy and vitality. Our body is designed to be alkaline,

maintaining a pH level of approximately 7.365 in our cells, particularly the blood.


When we eat and drink too many acid-forming foods and drinks such as colas, sugars, breads, sweets, pizza, chips, alcohol, white rice & pasta, trans-fats, fast food, refined food, sauces & condiments, dairy, meats and more we put our body under an incredible strain to maintain this pH balance at 7.365.


By hydrating our body with high pH water we help maintain this alkalinity, flush toxins & acids from the body (such as yeasts/candida and bacteria growths) and our energy and vitality will go through the roof!


Being over-weight is also an acid problem, so when you start to hydrate & alkalize you will also start to see the weight fall away. Seriously, just by drinking ½ your body weight in ounces of alkaline water per day you will begin to see huge improvements with your weight.


5. Anti-Aging! The cause of premature aging is an over acid, dehydrated body. Aging occurs when we do not dispose of the internally generated wastes and toxins in our body. This is the process of getting old.

Because this accumulation of waste products inside the body is the aging process, supporting the body to remove these old, acid wastes is the anti aging process.


Antioxidants are often referred to as a way to prevent anti-aging because they help to detoxify the body from these wastes – and so drinking alkaline, antioxidant-rich water is a fantastic way to slow and reverse the aging process.


When we are hydrated, our cells function optimally, our digestive system works wonderfully and we can remove these aging toxins easily!

Tired of Suffering From Stiff Joints?


If you have stiff, achy joints you’re not alone.  I can’t tell you how many of you have told me they’re so stiff in the morning that it is miserable to get out of bed – or that everyday activities like climbing a flight of stairs is a painful event.

Unfortunately there aren’t many good pain relief options available, especially if you have cardiovascular concerns.  Clinical studies have shown that the most popular pain relievers for joint issues, NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), can negatively impact blood clotting.   Consequently, it would seem they are not the optimal choice for anyone with cardiovascular concerns.

The good news is there’s an all-natural breakthrough that can provide dramatic joint pain relief safely and effectively…

This discovery gets to the root of joint pain – delivering safe, lasting relief.

Scientists have uncovered an all-natural pain reliever called Re:Flex® that does what no other nutrient has ever done, it…

Previous name Infi-Aide

  • Provides fast dramatic relief for stiff, painful joints – by blocking pain right where it starts
  • Contains antioxidants that help protect your joints.
  • Plus, it’s not only safe for your heart – it actually boosts heart health!

This is such a huge breakthrough for your joints, muscles and your heart.

Re:Flex blocks your joint pain right where it starts.

Re:Flex contains highly bioavailable form of ingredients.  Once in your joints, Re:Flex blocks the top pain-causing enzymes we all hear so much about.

Plus, it’s safe and natural, so you can confidently take it every day!

The study results are quite dramatic.


To order RE:FLEX visit Vollara’s website at this link

In a leading study, Reflex improved pain, stiffness, and physical function by over 58% and mobility by 336%.  Re:Flex also promoted a 16-fold drop in C-reactive protein (CRP), which is the measure of inflammation in your body.  That dramatic CRP reduction isn’t just benefiting your joints; it can make a real improvement in your overall health.

Then, to round out the Re:Flex formula, it supplies a powerful combination of natural herbs and proteolytic enzymes that support the immune system’s natural anti-inflammatory processes.  This helps to reduce oxidative stress on your joints, heart and entire body.

Re:Flex can make a real difference
in your health and quality of life

Not only does it do an excellent job of relieving your everyday joint pain and stiffness, it can make a real difference anywhere in your body that CRP is causing harm.  Remember, not only does Re:Flex relieve joint pain and stiffness; it’s safe and natural so you can confidently take it every day with your cardiovascular medications.  In fact, it can help improve your cardiovascular health.

Reasons You Don’t Need to Hide From Friends in Network Marketing

Hi, my name is Brian. What is yours? What do I do, you ask?  I’m a former stockbroker, now a full-time network marketer.  Wait! Why are you choking? Why are you suddenly trying to run away?  This is a pretty common scenario when I meet someone for the first time.

I’m not an old guy. As a matter of fact, I just turned 49.  I have been blessed with many experiences, and thankfully some different careers in my life.  I have been a professional touring musician, a real estate broker, a business owner, a financial planner, and now…..I am a full-time network marketer. And by the way, very proud of it!

It’s funny. When I was in the music industry, people stuck to me like glue, especially girls in small towns. They saw me as a ticket out of Hickville, USA or as a stepping stone to help their career ambitions.  Never worked. We musicians called these “ladies” diesel sniffers.  For those of you not familiar with the term diesel sniffer, it means the same thing as a groupie or whatever other name you choose to call them.  Every career field has them in some form or fashion.

When I was in real estate and the stock brokerage field, and people would ask me what I did for a living, once I told them, they started in on me for free advice. “Well, what do you think my property is worth, or what should I invest my money in these days?”  Naturally, I never gave away free advice; but, this was a common scenario.

Nowdays, it is a totally different story. When people find out that I actually work in the network marketing or MLM field, they will break their neck trying to get away from me.  I think a lot of it has to do with the way a certain company years ago conducted business in this industry. I call this a scamway! I think we all have been invited to dinner with friends to find out when we got there we had been harpooned into an MLM presentation.  Not the way to do business!

Here’s the thing most people don’t understand. Just because I work in the MLM industry does not mean I want you working with me in the MLM industry. Surprised?  It also does not mean that everytime I see you I am going to try and sell you something.  You see, that is the misconception. Everyone is afraid of network marketers because they think they are going to be marketed to, or hounded seven days a week and twice on Sunday. I don’t conduct business this way. That was scamway, remember? Now, I will admit, many MLM people still attempt to conduct business this way. You know the type, they are in a new deal every other month, and they never make any money!

Many of the people I come into contact with on a daily basis couldn’t become a partner in my business if they paid me. Surprise you? I know, it really does. Here’s why I say this. Network marketing, despite what you hear, is very hard work — probably the hardest work I have ever done. Many of the people I come in contact with couldn’t do my job — they’re too lazy, they are looking to get-rich-quick, and they are much too negative about most everything you mention.  I know, this sounds mean and cruel; but, it is just the down-right truth!  In my network marketing business, I only talk with those individuals who want to talk with me. I’m looking for those unique, special people who are looking for me.  There are those who are very content in their careers and that is well and good. There are those who like working 9-5 everyday and being told what to do by their wealthy boss. They like that guaranteed paycheck. But guess what, there are no guarantees. You call in sick one too many times, or make the boss mad, and you’re gone. In a few minutes you are in-line at the unemployment office.

I have chosen my career path because I like doing what I want when I want to do it. I like getting out of bed whenever I choose. I like working when it fits my schedule not someone else’s. I like getting paid what I’m worth, and I like knowing that I can make as much or as little as I choose, not what some corporate executive thinks I deserve. Here’s what I enjoy: financial independence, time freedom, control, and unlimited opportunity, and I’m no longer over-qualified and under-paid!

Relax. I’m not trying to recruit you into my deal. I’m not trying to sell you something everytime I see you. I don’t usually work with just family and friends, if I did, I would be going hungry.  Can you imagine owning a McDonald’s and putting a sign out front that reads “Only family and friends served?”  If you’re looking for me, I’m looking for you. It’s that simple. Period.

Love to hear your comments and feedback.

Your Work Is Important.

Me and Hollywood movie producer, and fellow Vollarian, Glenn Greene

Happiness depends on feeling good about yourself. It is based on your relationships and achievements. When your gifts and abilities are developed and utilized through your life’s work, you grow in confidence and strength.

If you are unhappy at work, it will affect your family life, even your health. Take time to plan your career and life’s work.

Your work is a gift from God. “…to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God,” (Ecclesiastes 5:19).  “The Lord shall make thee plenteous in goods…and…bless all the work of thine hand,” (Deuteronomy 28:11 – 12).

God has given you your life’s work to bring you personal fulfillment. It is a vital key to your self-esteem and significance. If you are investing forty miserable hours each week on a job you do not like, two hours of church on Sunday will not necessarily cure it.

1. Are You Really Happy With What You Are Presently Doing? Your personal excitement and enthusiasm about your productivity each day is important. Nobody can answer this but You.

2. Is Your Present Job Actually A Short-Range or Long-Range Goal? For instance, high school or college students may not intend to work their entire lifetime at fast food restaurants. So their “after school” job is a short-range goal. They are gaining education, experience and basic financial provision.

Likewise, you should clarify in your own Mind the real reasons why you have chosen to work where you are presently working or where you desire to work.

3. Are Your God-Given Gifts And Strongest Talents Being Developed?  Prosperity and promotion usually come to those who totally focus on their most significant skills.

4. Are You Working Just To Pay Your Bills And Have Fun or To Truly Express A Contribution To Life And To This Work? Prominent achievers go the extra mile.

5. Do You Feel That God Is Satisfied With What You Are Doing Now?  I remember one tremendous guitarist who left a nightclub band after honestly answering this question. Though he loved his music, he felt God did not want him sowing his talents in such an environment.

6. Do You Feel That You Are Doing The Highest Quality of Work That You Are Capable of Doing?  Millions cultivate the habit of mediocrity in their daily duties. If you are not striving for total excellence, you have either the wrong job or the wrong attitude.

7. Do You Feel Like You Are Working “As Unto The Lord?” You must see the work you do for your boss as work you are doing for God. If not, you will soon resent your boss and the time you spend on his work.  This attitude will eventually cause you to feel unfulfilled and unproductive.

Seriously consider the above questions. Then, ask The Lord for his instructions regarding your career.

8. How Much Income Do You Personally Feel That You Need To Consider Yourself Financially Successful?  Each of us have different needs. Some have 5×7 dreams. Others have 16×20 dreams. Neither is right or wrong. The key is to establish a true picture of your personal desires.

9. What Kind of Problems Do You Really Love To Solve?  You can determine this by your favorite topic of conversation, favorite books and magazines that you enjoy? What would you enjoy talking about the most? Those things reveal your true interests.

10. What Kind of Environment Do You Find Most Enjoyable? Some people discover that they need many people around them to be most productive. Others prefer solitude.

11. What Are Your Social Needs? If your job deprives you of important relationships, it will become a source of discomfort and depression. You must diagnose the personal leisure and social needs that your happiness requires.

12. What Kind of Family Life or Time Do You Feel Is Necessary?  Obviously, a bachelor schedules his life differently from a family man with five children or a divorced mother of an infant. The job that is right for you should provide adequate time for sharing with those you love.

13. What Level of Social Approval And Respect Do You Need? Each of us wants to be accepted by our friends. Never work for a company of which you are ashamed.  One man admitted to me that he had no confidence in the products he was promoting. Consequently, he experienced very little success. He left that job and went to work with a company he could honestly support.  It made all the difference in his happiness.

14. What Kind of Financial Future Is Necessary For Your Peace of Mind? While very few jobs offer a lifetime guarantee, every one of us needs a sense of predictable income. Tomorrow does come. You must find where God wants you to be and what He wants you to be doing, and move as quickly as possible in that direction. Paul wrote, “With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men,” (Ephesians 6:7).

The article above was written by Dr. Mike Murdock, a dear friend and mentor to me. It was taken from The Wisdom Papers of Mike Murdock WPMM#36. For more information on Dr. Murdock’s ministry, visit him online at

When I received this information from Dr. Murdock, I was personally going through a time in my life where I had just made a major career change.  I had been in the financial services industry for many years, and had, quite honestly, become very successul. I had worked my way up to earning a mid six-figure annual income; however, God decided it was time for me to move in another direction. I thought I was happy. I had all the things in life that make one appear to be happy…nice homes, expensive luxury cars, exotic vacations…yet, I was miserable inside and didn’t know it. I was also lost and undone…I was living a lie…I thought I had a relationship with Jesus; however, I had an empty, selfish life. On December 11, 2008, I personally accepted Jesus Christ as my very own Personal Savior and now I know what that relationship truly means. Life hasn’t been all perfect since that day. Actually, it has gotten harder! I now know what things in life are important to me. God…family…true friends. You see, money buys people, but not friends!

I have a very varied career past…I have worked in the real estate industry, law enforcement, been the owner and/or co-owner of several business ventures….even worked professionally in the music entertainment industry. I had played with the Network Marketing industry previously; but, I had never made any serious money….that is until I got involved with a healthy-living technology company in 2006.  My wife, Joyce and I, started seeing checks of over $5,000 each month within five months.

When I made my career change in 2008 out of the financial services industry, I prayed hard and long about which direction God wanted me to move toward. It was about this time that Dr. Murdock sent me the article quoted above.  God showed me clearly the things I enjoy doing. I enjoy working and being around people…the one’s I choose to be around and the one’s God chooses to send into my path. I enjoy having time freedom. I enjoy being able to spend as much time with my wife as I possibly can. I enjoy being able to spend tons of time with my two beautiful granddaughters…and I like being able to take trips and vacations whenever I choose. I also like having the ability to earn as much money as I want to earn! The great thing about my network marketing career is the fact that I can work from anywhere in the world. As long as I have my iPhone, I’m in business.

Network marketing isn’t for everyone. Contrary to what many think, I don’t want  all my friends and family members in my business. I only want those people who are fed-up with making someone else rich….working when someone else tells them to work…being off when someone else tells them to be off. I want the individual that is career-disturbed, tired of the rat-race of corporate America, tired of being under-paid, under-appreciated, and over-worked!

Is this you? If so, I have a very good website…actually, it is a great webiste. Spend some time on my site, and if you want to talk, complete the information form on the site, and I’ll contact you. No obligation, whatsoever.

The site is right here.

There is one thing for sure, my company, Vollara, is rocketing to the moon…come fly with us!

How would you like to have every possible opportunity in your life open up to you? How would you like unlimited possibilities?  If you will fall in love with the network marketing industry, your success is inevitable!  If you’re already a member of the network marketing industry, I applaud you. Fall in love with your industry. Fall in love with your chosen company, and fall in love with your products. If you’re not in this industry, I urge you to prayerfully consider joining – either part-time, or if you are in a position to do so; make it a full-time career!

Network Marketing is a way for you to achieve everything you’ve ever wanted in life – and by helping others!  Your success can be directly proportionate to the level of service and support you provide for other people. This is phenomenal!  From your very first day in network marketing you are free!  Free from commuting, free from office politics, free from being tied down to a boring, dead-end job, and free from making someone else rich while you struggle to survive!  And what about you corporate guys and gals?  Are you career-disturbed? Are you over-worked, under-paid, under-appreciated? How about over-qualified? How about…just sick and tired of the corporate rat race? And, don’t even get me started about you folks that have to catch a plane somewhere every day, or every week. Aren’t you tired of being “tired?”

John Kalench said in his 1990 book, Being The Best You Can Be in MLM**, “Network Marketing is such a unique and extraordinary system that I firmly believe it will open up for you – as it did for me and has for thousands of others just like us – a vast new horizon of possibilities for your life. Once you begin to grasp the unlimited potential of Network Marketing, you’ll begin to reveal your deepest desires and aspirations.”

Here are the three things you must do in order to be successful in a Network Marketing career:

  1. 1.  You must use you products and love them! You may ask me, “Brian, what will I have to do if I join a Network Marketing company?”  I’ll be the first to tell you, there are no shortcuts, and that’s a good thing, too!  Network Marketing offers some of the most extraordinary products and services in the world. Take my chosen company, Vollara. We have the absolute highest quality, most amazing, eco-friendly technology the world has ever seen! I am my own best customer – and with this combination, I have a win-win situation! I use my own company products!
  2. You must share and recommend your products to others!  This is very simple. You already do this, and you don’t realize it. What happens when you eat at a great restaurant? You tell your friends and family about this awesome restaurant!  What happens when you go see a good movie?  You tell your friends and family, right?  Do the restaurants and movie theaters pay you residual income for sending all your friends to them? NO!  Gues what? Your Network Marketing company does! Every time I tell someone about my Vollara technology, and they use my product, I get paid! Isn’t this the most exciting thing you’ve ever heard of? Professional marketers know they have to get people to try their product, they have to get you to use their product or service again and again, and lastly, and most importantly…the thing all marketers dream of accomplishing: they need you to like the product so much that you recommend it to other people!
  3. 3.    You must sponsor other people to join you. When people see you’re having fun building your home-based business, when they see you making money…they will start thinking pretty long and hard about joining you. This is a very critical point…do not miss this! Network Marketing is not about begging people to join your business. It’s not about “hard-selling” them. It’s not about “high-pressure. And, it sure isn’t about deceiving them into coming to dinner or to your home for a social event, and then hitting them with your opportunity meeting! This is unethical, and it is wrong!  You know what it is about? It’s about honestly offering people your opportunity and letting them make a choice. Network Marketers are not in the persuading business or convincing business; we are in the sorting business.  Just keep offering until you find the right person at the right time. Period!

If you want to know more, or have questions, feel free to send me an e-mail. I can be reached at  If you would like more information on my company of choice, Vollara, you can see an entire presentation at

Thank you for taking a few minutes of your time to read my blog today. I am very humbled you have stopped by.  Will you do me a favor? Will you share this information with your team if you are in the Network Marketing industry? If you’re not in the industry, maybe you would like more information about joining the industry, or maybe you know someone else who could use an extra $1000 – $2000 each month. If so, send this to them. If you’re reading this from Facebook, or some other social media site, will you hit the “like” button for me? And if you really want to make me feel super special, subscribe to my blog. And please, if there is any way I can personally serve you, please do not hesitate to call on me. I believe in paying it forward. Givers really do gain, and I want to be a giver! Thank you so much, and may God bless you!

To Your Continued and Future Success!

Wall Street Sign. Author: Ramy Majouji

Yesterday, while doing some interviews with potential new business partners, I received an e-mail from an old school friend of mine. I couldn’t help but chuckle when I read her comments, “no thanks, I’m not interested in network marketing now or in the future….I would much rather earn my money the old-fashioned way….work….work…” 

When I think of a woman telling me she wants to earn her money the “old-fashioned way,” my mind somehow goes back to the oldest profession in the world! I won’t even start down that road!

Her comment did start me thinking. Do people view those of us in the network marketing industry as “not working?” I’ll admit, many of the high-pressure, hoopla-type, MLM folks of the past always tried to make people think that if they joined their new deal, their life would be all peachy-keen!  I have learned that nothing in life worth having ever comes for free.

I absolutely love the networking marketing industry. Compared to the Wall Street career I came out of, it is sweet bliss. I have found out that the industry is called network marketing for a reason….it is hard netWORKing! Probably the hardest work I have ever done….but, the most fun and rewarding!

The late Jim Rohn always taught that one could work for profits or wages. I used to tell my wealthy financial clients this, and they would always ask me to explain. It works like this:

When you work for Wal-Mart, McDonald’s, or whatever corporate job that comes to mind, and you’re paid hourly, or by salary, this is considered working for wages.  You give the employer 40-60 hours of hard labor, and they will reward you with a guaranteed paycheck….and they will take out things like taxes, unemployment, Social Security, insurance, well….you get the picture. You get what’s left over.

Let’s look at a real-life example: let’s say you work at the big box store down the street, and they pay you “wages” of $7.25 per hour. If you work 40 hours on that hard cement floor, on weekends, and many holidays, on a typical week, your wages before taxes and all the charges would be $290.00.  If they keep you around long enough for retirement, you’ll get a cake and a $100 wrist watch.  If you’re in the 15% federal tax bracket, your bring-home pay after taxes will be $246.50.

Now here in South Carolina where I live, the state is going to take out another 7%, so that brings your $246.50 “wages” down to $226.20.  So…..after everything else comes out that I mentioned previously, you will bring home probably less than $200.00.  Now, that $200 divided by those hard, back-breaking 40 hours of hard labor comes out to around $5.00 per hour. I know, I know….you’re saying; but, that check is guaranteed!  Yes, it is, until the company gets mad at you, or finds someone younger than you to do your job for less money. So, do you now understand how working for wages works?

Next, let’s look at the other way of earning a living…working for profits! This is my preferred method. Believe me, I have worked jobs in both categories, so I know what they both are all about. The majority of wealthy people in this world work for profits.  Let’s see how this works. 

Let’s say in my network marketing business, that I go out and spend three or four hours with a customer, and that customer decides to buy one of my widgets, or whatever I’m marketing.  As a self-employed businessman, I buy my products at a wholesale cost and sell them at a retail cost to make a fair “profit.”  Let’s assume I make $300 profit on my item my customer buys.  That’s a pretty good paycheck for three to four hours work, wouldn’t you agree?  This also does not include the bonus and residual income my company pays me for helping other people start their business.

We all know in the real world that not every customer buys every time; but, if I spend enough time talking with people who are looking for, or need, what my company offers, then I will make sales….thus profits. Now, comparing this way of working to my friend who works at the big box store, let’s compare numbers:

Big box store “guaranteed” wages for 40 hours hard work is $290.00 before taxes, insurance and the like.

My “non-guaranteed” profit for 3 – 4 hours work is $300.00!  So, I ask you, would you rather have $7.25 per hour in wages, or $100 per hour in profits?  Guess what happens if I work more than 3-4 hours? What if I work 20 hours in a week, and I make 2 or 3 sales?  You guessed it! Now I made $900.00 before taxes, and I worked half the hours you did, and I had much more fun. I also got to make my own hours, got to work from home and didn’t have to put up with co-workers I don’t like, and don’t have to worry about getting fired!  Yes, I still have to pay taxes and insurance and things like everyone else; however, I make more money, and I’m the boss.

SO, I ask you….profits or wages?  How about this? What if you tell me, “Brian, I can’t give up my guaranteed wages right now to start my own home-based business and work for profits?” Well, what if you keep your wages job, and in your spare time, maybe 5-10 hours per week, start a home-based business, and make some profit on top of your wages. If you make a sale, and you will if I help you, then you’ve got extra money plus your wages.  When your home-based business grows to the point to where it is making you more money than your wages job, then you have a decision to make. Do you start working for yourself full-time and give up the big box store job, or do you keep doing both and have all that extra money? That will be your decision.

If I have piqued your interest, and made you start thinking a bit more, then why not e-mail me at and let’s schedule some time to chat. No obligation. No high-pressure. No BS like most home-based scammers, just straight talk and honesty. Be prepared to work hard, but also plan to be in for the ride of your life. 

You can keep living in the basement apartment, or you can move on up to the penthouse condo. The decision is yours. If you keep on doing what you’ve always done, then you’re going to keep getting what you’ve always gotten! The view will never change.

Together, you and me, as a team….we can climb the highest mountain. I will make it to the top of that mountain, or you will find me dead somewhere on the side of that mountain! What do you say? Is it worth a few minutes of your time to look over some information and talk?  I’ll be looking to hear from you today!

God bless you.

To Your Future Success!

P.S. And to my friend who sent me the note about continuing to earn her money the “old-fashioned way,” I certainly hope that works out for you!

Let me start by saying that if you have ever dreamt of the financial freedom to enjoy a better life and to have more security for you and your family you need to take a serious look at our amazing company, “Vollara.”

Over the last 30 years I have owned 5 different businesses: a super-market, music publishing and record label, real estate company, import-export, financial planning practice and three multi level marketing distributorships.  Out of all my experiences this is the most exciting and most rewarding business I have had the pleasure of being involved with.  So if you are serious about changing your life you owe it to yourself to take a few minutes to investigate: the strength of our company, our simple success plan, and our unique, interesting and effective products.

I am in the business of training people to make an extra $500 to $7,000 per week from home. Full time or part time you set your own goals and degree of commitment.

The next step would be to call or email me and let me know the best days and times to call you. At that time I will give you more details, as little or as much as you want, at your pace!

I do not believe in pushy tactics or misrepresentation. I know many people have been turned off to some home-based marketing by other companies. I ask that you judge us by who we are and what you see, not by what you heard from someone else. With our system we can help you go as high as you want!

Remember time is money so don’t sit this on the back burner and let this opportunity escape you.
