We have a guest post from blog sponsor Marilyn Sarno, Independent Consultant Apriori Beauty.

Self-care Lists are everywhere especially on Social Media. I read all of them to find out if I missed something because I am a Beauty Consultant and want to keep up with the latest fads, trends and beauty advice. I promised myself I would keep an open mind to new beauty ideas even though there are a few I think are crazy like black lipstick and nail polish.

There are self-care webinars, mini-courses and books created for all age groups. The video tutorials are great fun and easy to learn new make-up techniques.

I am proud to be a sixty-something woman and I am amazed that I survived the past decades without self-care lists. They simply didn’t exist. My generation relied on our mothers, grandmothers and chatting with our girlfriends to keep abreast of beauty trends.


Paramount to External Beauty is maintaining Internal Beauty with consistent healthy clean eating (whole, unprocessed food), adequate hydration and physical exercise which impact your skin’s beauty. Living a balanced life, managing stress and a good night’s sleep every night keep you looking years younger.
My Top Seven Beauty Tips for all ages:

1. Learn to love your own unique beauty; You know there is only one of you so focus on your best features.

2. Remember to smile throughout the day. Your smile can instantly bring sunshine wherever you are. Your beauty rays are attractive and mirror a positive mindset.

3. A schedule and discipline in looking your best each day matters. An organized beauty routine will keep your skin looking fabulous. Plan your morning and evening Cleanse-Tone-Firming Serum – Lip and eye treatment then day/night moisturizer will erase years from your face.

4. Presentation or first impressions mean you take the time every day to create the make-up look that works for you, your hair, clothes and shoes are clean, neat and fit well. It feels good to look beautiful.

5. Don’t forget treatment products. Weekly facials, scrubs, detox masques, and glycolic peels will keep your skin looking refreshed. Make-up looks best on a well moisturized exfoliated face.

6. Once a year treat yourself to a make-over to learn the newest make-up techniques and Seasonal colors for either a day-time look and an evening, glamorous face. What colors will make your beauty pop? I like experimenting with new lipstick shades each season.

7. Update hair style and color for a younger you. Don’t be afraid to try a new ‘do’. Hair grows back and you can start all over again.

You are all set so go out there and make a difference in the world!
The world needs your beauty!

Yesterday I had a coaching client say, “I never seem to achieve my goals. Am I hopeless?”

Here is my thought: No one is hopeless – misguided maybe but not hopeless.

Achieving goals involves a combination of emotional preparation and physical activity. The mindset of success is just as important as the physical activity of working toward your goal. Without the mindset of success, physical activity can be like spinning your wheels on ice – the wheels go around but you’re not going anywhere.

Using words such as: Never, hopeless, I’m a loser, this doesn’t works for me and it’s a waste of time are all setting yourself for failure. These words create thoughts of disappointment, not success.

Here’s a short checklist for creating a successful goal achieving mindset:

1. Belief in yourself and your ability to succeed. Belief can make the difference between spinning your wheels and living out your goals. What do you believe about your ability to succeed? Do you say positive things about yourself, to yourself? Do you believe without an ounce of doubt that you deserve to succeed?

2. Clearly know what you want to achieve. Are your goals clearly written in specifics? Is there a beginning date and completion date? Can you clearly visualize your goal and does it seem “real” to you?  Are you specific and definite about what you want to achieve?

3. Is the “why” for achieving your goal strong enough to overcome roadblocks and obstacles? Your inner motivation must be big enough and powerful enough to keep you going forward even when you’re faced with negativity and discouragement. Is your “why” is big and strong enough, discouragement won’t deter or dissuade you?

4. Make your goal your own. Is your goal really your goal? Is the goal you are aiming toward and working to achieve really your goal or is it someone else’s? Sometimes, we get caught up in the hopes and dreams of others and we can’t seem to separate their wants and needs from our own. If the goal you’re aiming toward is important enough to you personally, professionally and/or financially, you’ll emotionally and physically work extremely hard to achieve it.

If your desire to achieve is strong enough and the plan you’ve set in place is workable, your goals have an excellent chance of becoming reality.

The question remains: Do you have the mindset of success?

We have a guest blog post from our blog sponsor BJ Dudley, Independent Distributor JAQX Smart Home Security System.

I want to share with you a little about myself and “WHY JAQX”

Somewhere in my soul, beats the heart of an entrepreneur. Over the years I have tried a variety of things from making hand made paper, to quilt making and nutrition.

BJ Dudley

Nutrition was something that I truly believe in and I still take the product I was selling to this day. While doing this for several years I came to realize two things about myself. I love to share anything I believe in, but I am terrible when it comes to “asking for the order”. The truth is, asking for the order is not part of my DNA, nor is asking for “anything”.

Even though my mother died when I was 3 years old I never once thought that would happen to me! I just knew I was not going to die, young! But, as crazy as this might sound I also never realized I was going to get old. I understood aging but never connected that with being old. Nor did I ever consider what it would be like, to live on a fixed income or not be hire-able.  I want to say that I realize how very fortunate I am, compared to so many other people.

I had been living in Oregon and Nebraska prior to returning to California and I must say, when I did it was sticker shock.

My brother, who was 12 years older, than me and who had a very good retirement and savings had moved into assisted living along with his wife, to the tune of $8000 a month. At this point he became concerned that they might out live their money. They have since past away and what he was so worried about, never happened.

However, it was wake-up call for me! I knew that I wanted to do something – to not only be more active but also more financially independent. I wanted an income and ideally, I wanted one that I could build on.

A friend of mine, who I worked with at the nutrition company, called me not too long ago and told me about JAQX. After looking at the website and compensation plan I decided “this” was something I could do, and this was something I really wanted to share with others. In my mind’s eye I had found the goose that laid the golden egg. Right then and there, decided I wanted to share it with the world.

So here I am at 84 years old and starting my new adventure – with JAQX

To be honest, my family wasn’t very happy about it!

They just did not see what I saw. In their defense, I’d previously gotten them involved in some other adventures and they decided to sit this one out!  Enough is enough is probably what they thought! Actually, what they said was, “We will support you in what you want to do but YOU NEED TO DO IT! IT’S YOUR BUSINESS!” I have two daughters: One is an entrepreneur and the other is a long-haul truck driver with her husband. Both love me. Neither wanted to be part of this business!

I was deflated and disappointed however I was determined to forge ahead. As they said, “this was my business!”

Now fast forward and here I am!! Face to face with my old problem. I CAN’T ASK – WON’T ASK – DON’T KNOW HOW TO ASK FOR SOMEONE/ANYONE TO SIMPLY LOOK AT MY BUSINESS.”  Yeah “THAT PROBLEM” I love this company and product and I’m not sure why it’s so hard to simply ‘ASK’ someone to look at what I do and just tell me if they think it might be a good fit for them? If it might help them?  If they might be interested?

So, as I stand here, before you today, and I know you might think I’m a bit crazy and maybe I am! But I invite all of you to laugh out loud with me and say “BJ, what in the hell are doing?” Well, I’ll tell you! I’m working for a company I love and I’m doing my very best to bring something great to the world and to gather the courage to ask, “WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT JAQX?”

That’s my story and I’m sticking with it! So, onward and upward and here we go!
