One day I was at my medical practice and I had a revelation. No kidding. As the idea jumped into my head I was really excited: I had a new understanding of my purpose. I had just talked with Mrs. Peters. She was broke and with tears in her eyes she bent over and said, barely above a whisper, “I can’t afford the medicine”.
I had heard her story hundreds of times over the past 20 years. She was painted financially into a corner and was having to decide between food and medicine. At the same time I knew I was sitting on the most powerful health product I had ever seen. I knew it would help her even more than the medicine. I had seen miracles happen—yet she couldn’t afford it!

Although there is a tremendous amount of controversy surrounding the use of technology for gender selection, folks have been attempting to influence the sex of their children for millennia. Some cultures tend to want female children, while others are adamantly pro-boy. There are many countries that have anti-ultrasound laws in place right now to prevent mothers from terminating pregnancies of a child of the undesired sex. Needless to say, throughout the ages, many natural techniques have been developed to help couples choose whether they have a bouncing baby boy or a giggling baby girl.

EVERY WINNER HAS SCARS
Your life is made up of a series of experiences.
Each one will make you stronger, even though sometimes it will be hard for you to realize it.
Life is your classroom in which you are being tested, tried, and passed.
Always try to stay in the midst of life and activity.
Don’t isolate yourself from the action.
Be among people and things, among troubles, difficulties and obstacles.
Your character develops itself in the stream of life.
Life expects you to make progress in reasonable time.
That’s why they make those grade school chairs so small.
Learn quickly that the setbacks and grief’s you endure
actually help you in your march forward to success.
The world was built to develop your character.

“Human beings have the remarkable ability to turn nothing into something. They can turn weeds into gardens
and pennies into fortunes.”
“We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter’s evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.”

My family has always been a source of love and inspiration for me. I admire my parents and siblings because they have always embraced the good times as well as the bad. Life is certainly far from perfect, but they have taught me that for every seed of adversity there is a seed of prosperity. I will always feel rich because of who they are and I am thankful every day to have them and my husband in my life. Most of all, I feel truly blessed to have my daughter, Yasmine. My prayer is that we are able to teach her the life lessons my parents taught me and to help her walk from childhood to adulthood with confidence. I hope she knows that our love is unconditional and that our support for her will not cease when she is an adult. She is my ultimate inspiration…My Why. Continue reading →
Can you deduct your home office from your taxes?
If you work at home, as millions of Americans now do, it’s well worth investigating whether you qualify for home office deductions. The 1.5 million tax filers who claimed exemptions for the business use of their homes cut their annual Federal tax bill by an average of some $2000 in 1994 (the last year for which data are available). But before you take those savings to the bank, you’d better understand the rules.
A home office need not be the only place you work to qualify for a deduction. You can, for example, hold a full time salaried job and still deduct the costs of the home office where you run a business on the side. However, you generally cannot deduct costs associated with a home office where you do work for an employer. In fact, you’ll disqualify a home office used for an independent business if you also use the same space to do employer related work. Continue reading →
I have always wondered how some blogs manage to make money right off the bat. I mean, dont get me wrong, I was making a good 11 cents per day once I started up my blog. It took about a month before I started to see enough to get a check in the mail. It only took me a month because I worked hard everyday to get my stuff in order. I consider myself to be using a gray hat I suppose. When I ask the question, “What color is your hat,” I am actually asking you whether or not the traffic you receive to your site is legitimate or not. White hat techniques refers to the ethical process’ that a webmaster uses in driving traffic to his or her site.
