How To Overcome Information Overload

0_3E8AInformation overload is extremely hard to deal with. Most small business owners who begin marketing are usually very ecstatic to take in all of the information and resources.  However, when they realize that there is so much involved with building a business, they give up and they find it hard to process all of the information that they get.

Information overload is about learning and researching, only to find yourself covered by so much information that none of it is being processed. Overcoming information overload isn’t all too difficult, but it can take some time before you truly beat the confusion and the difficulties.

The best way to overcome all of that information is by taking everything one by one. Don’t try to learn everything all at one time. You should pick one area and focus on becoming productive in that area.  Find the method that works best and stick to it, then attach the next area.

In other words, if you realize that you need to build a site, build a site first without moving on to the next thing. Most people will usually build a site and build backlinks all at the same time.

It’s only normal for these business owners to feel confused and smushed by all the pressure and misunderstood information. Take your time, and you’ll find your niche isn’t tough to make money from.

To get started on the right path, don’t keep learning from different sources. Basically, if you find a great mentor, continue to work with that same mentor. They know where you started, and they know how you should continue.

If you bought an ebook or joined an online training membership, follow everything one by one. This will help you to do everything without putting so much pressure on yourself.

I find lots of new things to follow or books to read and then get overwhelmed with information in my inbox.  I take time periodically to unscribe from different sources and clean out what information I am getting.  Some of the big marketers will sign you up to four or five of their lists just so they can get one message to you.  That’s a lot of clutter in your inbox.

I have been working on several other sites and have added them into the links section.  Please check them out.  I will keep updating you as we get more sites up and running.  As with anything you see here if you need help , just contact me and I will gladly help you.

A Little Update…

Life has presented me many opportunities the last few months and some have taken me away from this site.   I hope to begin keeping this up a bit more, but first a bit of an explanation of what has been happening.

Not posting much recentlyis kinda a two part problem. First and for most we have been working really hard at growing Rijas Services. Going to gun shows most weekends and spending other free time doing the necessary paperwork while still holding full time jobs has been challenging for both my husband and I. 

Second has been my health.  Nothing bad, just learned about a month ago that my thyroid was not producing enough hormone.  When that happens I don’t have the energy to do much of anything.  I had been basically slowing down since about January.  I went in for a check up and suggested a blood test, because just too many things were out of whack.  Luckily, I was right and the meds are working wonderfully.  I have even had the energy to mow parts of the yard with the push mower.  Something no long ago I would never have dreamed of doing.

We are starting to get more interest in the horses and it is quickly becoming evident that my hsband will be quitting his full time job soon to focus on the other two businesses.

I am way behind in reading my gmail account.  If you have emailed me there in the last several months I will not be reading it.  I had +96k emails.  I am up to May with 71K to go and not reading any while deleting.  As I get closer to the March range I will try to scan for important ones, but if you really need to get in touch with me you can find my information on the contact page.

I have a few projects that I will be posting on this and will try to make postings at least once a week.  I will be evaluating what programs I am in and will let you know if I decide to drop one.

Hope you have been having a profitable Spring!

To Your Success!!

The Top 5 Fat Burners

turbulencet3_flatBy: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS

Let’s get right to it…here are 5 ways to make this a great fat-burning day…

1) Do Something You Love

If you are a beginner and you hate the gym, just do something you love! Don’t make your healthy lifestyle a prison sentence. Enjoy what you eat and do. Just don’t eat garbage and don’t look at exercise as punishment.

2) Strength Training

A very, very recent study (published in the May issue of the Journal of Applied Physiology 102:1 767, 2007) showed that resistance training boosts metabolism by 10% and increases fat burning by 100%!

3) Interval Training

The latest research from Australia showed a more weight loss from interval training than from long, slow cardio. In fact, the long, slow cardio group didn’t lose any weight. AND – this study was done in women…so yes, Turbulence Training works for women. Strength training and interval training are the 1-2 punch that blowtorch fat off your body.

4) Eat 6 Small Meals of Whole, Natural Foods

Fruits and vegetables, protein, nuts, and healthy fats. It’s that simple. Don’t spend another dollar on “the latest diet”. You ALREADY KNOW what to do!

5) Avoid Booze, Sugar, Trans-Fats, & Inactivity

Yeah, I know, real “secrets” here, CB. “Thanks”, you’re thinking sarcastically. Listen, sometimes we just need the motivation. Maybe there is a donut within reach, or you’re thinking about watching the tube instead of exercising, or you’ve got a cookie in one hand and an apple in the other.

Let this be a simple reminder to make the right choice.

Everything you do takes you closer to OR away from fat loss,

Warning: Do Not Read Unless You’re Over 40!

product-6-coverOkay, now remember, I said this blog is for people
Over 40 ONLY.
If you’re younger than 40, and you get offended by anything I say, tough tutus, you weren’t invited to this party anyway! 😉
Now then… I want to tell you what happened to me the other day… I bought an exercise dvd because I’m tired of being tired. I want to get into shape, I want to fit into my clothes, and I want energy – LOTS of it!
So I put on my old sweats, put on the dvd, and here was this barely 20 something girl in the shape of a toothpick, grinning menacingly (I swear!) at the camera like she was going to take a bite out it. Or me.
“Don’t worry,” she says. “We’re going to start out sloooowwww.”
Grin grin grin.
Barely five minutes into her jumping/gyrating/vibrating routine, I collapsed on the couch, completely confused, frustrated and ANNOYED.
Maybe, just maybe I could have kept up with her for awhile if something she did made SENSE.  But just when I was able to copy one of her moves, she was on to the next one like a frenzied rabid rabbit.
“Okay,” she grins, “Put your right arm up and step with your left foot and put your left arm out and hop with your right leg while bending at the waist and touch your forehead to the floor and snap back up and whirl your arms while moving your legs out and in and then turn left and slide down and roll and back up and bend and touch your head to your butt and…”
Holy @#$%&^*!  Who exercises like this???
Not me.  I’m over 40.  I want to get in shape.
I want to feel good, look good, and have lots of energy.
I don’t need a barely 20’s chicklet telling me, someone twice her age, how to get in shape.
Because frankly, she doesn’t have a clue.
What she teaches might be fine for people her age.
But I want to learn from someone MY age or older who is in the best shape of their lives.
Now THAT’S someone who can teach me how to be fit and feel great…
…and I know you probably feel the same way.
So I went online and started searching…
…and I think I’ve hit the mother lode.
The headline reads…
43-Year-Old Dallas Man Uncovers A Step By Step System For Living Fit And Healthy At Any Age That Is Literally Reshaping Bodies World-wide!
Okay, it sounds a little “sensational,” but I think we’re on the right track.
Read on…
“This Former Obese ‘Old Guy’ Ethically Bribed 52 Real-World Ageless Living Role Models and Talked Them Into Revealing All Their ‘Forever Young’ Lifestyle Secrets To Him…And Now He’s Sharing These Discoveries With Us!”
Check out the ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos on that webpage.
Do you see the guy who lost over 300 pounds??  Yikes!
Thank goodness I don’t need to lose anywhere near that much.
What about you? Do you want to lose a little weight?
Because I think THIS is the place to do it.
52 Real-World people who’ve gone from being…
-out of shape,
-obese and
-really obese…
…to hotties who frankly look BETTER than that barely 20 “stick” on that useless DVD I paid $19.95 for!
These are the people who can teach us.  And you know what?
Looking at their “before” photos, I know one thing…
…if they can do it…
…you and I can do it!

P.S. Want an easy shortcut to massive results fast?  Me too.  You’ve heard of role modeling, right?
It’s where you find the people who have the skills, knowledge or results you want.
When you copy their methods, you duplicate their results as fast as humanly possible.
Modeling gives you an unfair advantage that speeds up your rate of progress and slices years off your learning curve.
So why not use modeling to uncover and duplicate the health and fitness strategies of men and women who’ve conquered aging and disease?
