Who Wants To Color?

FabricDesignCarsAs we go through life, we sometimes forget to have some fun. I have met some wonderful folks through several entrepreneur groups that have put the fun back in life.  Check out these cool coloring books for grown-ups.

Don’t you remember as a kid the fun you had coloring and how everything was better if you could just escape into coloring? It turns out that coloring helps your brain. There are books for women and men. Simple books and harder ones.

I recently had a friend beat several different kind of cancers. She posted the very detailed drawings she was coloring every day on Facebook.  MegamuscleIt was great therapy for her to have a creative outlet to pour her heart into so she could heal.

It also turns out that by coloring a bit each day you help keep your brain younger and active. So if you get tired or reading or other activities that work your brain, why not try coloring.

Click on the pictures here and you visit Amazon to check out the great deals. The top two are on sale right now. And don’t forget to order some great colored pencils or markers to do you coloring.

If you have any questions or need other ideas or have ideas on how to keep your brain active, contact me!

A Year In Review…

10471158_10203585407293171_1427419185363643940_n

Sierra Ranch front pasture.  Weeds killed and grass mowed. – June 2014

Today marks one year since I have become single again.  I never really thought much about where I would be at this point in the beginning.  I was too busy learning to live a life that I loved and with people that cared about me.

Now that the first year is behind me the “What to do next” bug has bitten.  I have been working on what comes next.  The first order of business what getting the horse herd to a manageable size.  I am still working on selling several of the horses.  If you are looking for a horse or a way to help the horses, then please check out the Sierra Ranch Herd Dispersal Sale.

I have started a side business and will be expanding some.  You can see the  Damsel In Defense site. (Update: Check out Stormy Orchid, LLC)  There is everything there to protect yourself and ideas on how to help others.  I have a demo kit and would love to have some parties to show off what cool products we have. Contact me and we will set something up.

Things I have learned in the last year?  Live the life you love.  Take the time to play and enjoy the people around you.  Let go of the negative folks around you.  I have lost some pretty good fur friends this last year and gained some new ones.  I have found that not all guys are scared by the fact that I shoot, am pretty good at it, and like purple guns. I know it seems I put lots of things up about having a positive attitude, but sometimes that is all you have.  I am blessed to be able to look at any situation and find the good.

Now to go work on my new project and get it ready to hit the streets soon.  Someone buy a horse so that I can get moving on this new venture.  It will be AMAZING!

Five Reasons I LOVE Marketing on the Internet

For day seven of the Post-a-Day Challenge with IM Rockstars.  And since it is for Internet Marketing Rockstars, I get to tell why I like marketing on the internet.

  1. I don’t have to talk to people.  Being an introvert makes selling in person a real challenge.  Constantly being witty and knowledgeable about your product is difficult.  I have done it, and am glad not to have to continue to do it.  Although, I did learn a lot from the real person selling.
  2. I can select the things I want to promote.  And choose things that help make the world better, hopefully.  Check out my renewable energy sites.  Yeah, I need to update them again.
  3. I can do all this on MY time frame.  As I learned over the last month, sometimes real life just gets in the way.  You have to adjust and continue.
  4. I can tie the IM efforts to things I do in real life.  I have a cat site and a neat dog site.  Now I need to build a horse site or add it on to what I am doing with the other horse sites.  (My friends have no idea how many websites I operate.)
  5. Eventually, all these sites properly promoted will create a significant residual income that will make it easier to retire.  And having time to have fun is probably the one of the more important things right now.

So if you are new to internet marketing, and want some tips on how to start check out the link at the top of this page, or contact me.  Internet marketing can be what you make of it.  Whether it promotes your business or sell your talents to folks all over the world.  It’s a great way to develop your skills. Contact me if you need help starting.

Things I Learned This Weekend

Ranch

Sierra Ranch on July 25, 2013. Work to be done.

As with any ranch there are always things that need to be done. The work never seems to end, or you can choose what you want to see and just do the thing that needs to be done at that second.

As I have been kinda quickly placed into the status of single person after a 15 year marriage, I tend to look at all this as kinda fun.   I get to mold my ranch, and the businesses attached to it into what I want to do.  This weekend I started doing that by updating some of my websites with new pictures and information.

Here are a few things that I learned over the weekend:

Sharing a house is not fun under even the best of circumstances.  (Note: the ex is gone, but his business remains until he can relocate it.)  I can not find any tools, don’t have any gas for the lawn mowers, or even have one that wants to work.  Get down about it?  Heck no!  Find another of the million things to do.  And keep doing the thing!

Meeting a new guy for the first time you probably should not show him the rifles you think are the best prize from the divorce.  I worked in the gun business for four years and have a hard time remembering that some folks are creeped out about a gun that can hold 30 rounds.  Did it get me down that he kinda left abruptly?  Heck no!  Time to add something to my profile to let guys know I am armed, know how to use them properly, and am a good shot.  The right guy will think that is cool.

And lastly I learned it’s way past time to start doing things for myself.  I didn’t get to ride my Harley this weekend because the battery needs changing.  The ex had said just charge it, you need to ride more, ect.  Whatever!  It needs a new one.  I will go after work and buy it and then install the silly thing.  AND I will ride my freaking bike.  The freedom will be worth it!

And what does this have to do with business?  Well, I updated a few sites.  Still working on how to reword a few others and am slowly getting back to doing the thing.  What is that thing?  Depends on the day, but the most important thing is being happy!  And I am really good at that these days.

New Beginnings

Me on my 51st birthday.  By Dalia Hibbs

Me on my 51st birthday. By Dalia Hibbs

Well, I took a break for a bit to get some things in order in my life.  And yes that has lead to some new beginnings.  As you may notice on the horse websites I have removed Rick from the contact pages.  As of July 23, 2013 we are divorced.  Yes, it was quick, but it was necessary.

As I move forward, I will have more time to focus on the horses, learning to ride my Harley, and of course this site as well as others.  I already have a consulting job lined up on the engineering side.  I will be looking for more local businesses to work with.  This will start slow at first as I am getting my bearings, adjusting to taking care of the ranch, and yes, dating.

I have been doing some behind the scene things.  This is a picture on July, 15, 2013.  The cheerful glow is knowing that things are getting much better.  Dalia brought me flowers and took this wonderful picture.  I also had some head shots and other poses taken for the web sites.  I should get them soon and will be updating some things.

So come along for the ride down this new path.  I have joined the IM Rockstar Post-a-Day Challenge so you will be getting more posts as this challenge continues.  If you would like to join me in the IM Rockstar Facebook Group and get lots of great support from our group leader Lisa Gergets and other members let me know and I will hook you up.
