It’s Here – The Lifestyle Upgrade

Together we can achieve more.!!

I love working remotely and have done so on and off since 1993.  I found it very beneficial while bringing up my two children who are now adults.

I enjoyed working from home and being available to go to the school and joining in with their outings, helping with lunchtime clubs and afterschool clubs. My work fitted in between.

I had learnt some online skills and was able to find small business enterprises, here in the UK and globally who were offering similar services.]

Working globally via an internet connection gave me opportunities, A local business clubs I was offering #OnlineMarketing it was new, people didn’t think it would take off and now it’s a popular skill to learn and receive tangible results.

While working #freelancer I was part of the remote team for the online business club #Ecademy. Through #Ecademy I joined their premium membership #Blackstar and was able to attend workshops and learnt the benefits of networking which evolved my business skills and I was able to create a service to offer other people  > Social Media support/creating and social selling.

We undertook several profiling assessments with view to improve teamwork and networking.

I love travel and meeting other people from different cultures and in 2012 I joined a Travel and Lifestyle club. The opportunity to travel, meet other like-minded people and I was particularly drawn to their self development programme because the church I was involved with also enlightened me to the fact I was “Born for More”

Thanks to the leadership of Marc Accetta via Marc Accetta seminars I am on a journey to develop a positive mindset and this is leading to an opportunity to  have a Life Style Upgrade   

Not to sink and feel like our glass is half empty, but to realise it is half full and rising because we have made the decision to believe that thanks to this opportunity and the people we share it with team effort will create us a good living and have the life we have always wanted and the assets we thought we could never afford.

Mid week

I have had to leave this blog a couple of days to give me time to catch up with all my emails and do some marketing for my various businesses activates.  Still quite a bit to do, but I have started with some of it so there is information for people to read.

Over 1000 messages to read on LinkedIn, some of which are invites that never seem to diminish.  I don’t connect with everyone these days.   I have stopped connecting with people who are going to write to me to ask about me finding them work i.e outsourcing to India  I am only connecting with people that may be interested in something I am offering or they have something I need or are willing to network. People that are just adding me to get their numbers up I will decline, also people that have no profile or no picture.

I really need to go back through all my connections and re-connect via email.  I never will run out of people as “The Connector” I always have lots of people interested top connect with me.

Julian, Sonia and I sat up late and watched the “Shutter Island –  with Leonardo DiCaprio,  my advice is don’t watch it before you go to bed like we did

On Empire Avenue, Nokia invested in me – sometime since I invested 10 in them.  Quite an achievement to receive a reinvestment.  I have two accounts (e)TheConnector and also (e)IveyBusiness and so I have to play every day to maintain the score.

I am currently putting the (e)eaves aside to be able to buy extra shares in other people and it takes a bit of time to do this but it is part of the game and helps to raise the score.

We bought the whole set of Harry Potter and then watched them all in a week and went to see the last film earlier on in this month.  I never realised it was Alan Rickman that played the part of “Snape”.  Since this time I have been following Alan Rickman’s acting career

There is an amazing amount of information on the Internet and video clippings on Youtube.   I have created two playlists – one called Alan Rickman – and the other is anything to do with Harry Potter itself

There are quite a few people that have set up accounts on Twitter that post info on Alan Rickman and art-work created by fans, it is all quite interesting. Quite a few people are pretending to be Snape and I have connected to a few

Well, since I have been more vocal on Twitter I have had quite a few new people follow me this week, this has helped my Klout score.

I was to be part of the team with the Digital Brighton Conference at the end of this month and have to tweet details about that so have also had a few local followers.

I found out yesterday that the DBC has been postponed.  I am glad as I need to concentrate on my own business so I don’t let down the people that depend on me to develop their lead generation.

I am also still tweeting about the £5 million Penthouse and the paper is still being circulated around my Twitter Accounts though it could do with more subscribers.

I have had a good response to my Digital Marketing and was able to book appointments for 3 way calls later on this week.

Today I will be networking on Empire Avenue and re-vamping my profile on LinkedIn..
