The Necessity Of Watchfulness

Mark 13:33-37
The Necessitiy of Watchfulness

'Beware, keep alert; for you do not know when the time will come. It is like a man going on a journey, when he leave home and puts his slaves in charge, each with his work, and commands the doorkeeper to be on the watch. Therfore, keep awake- for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening or at midnight, or at cockcrow; or at dawn, or lese, he may find you asleep when he comes suddenly. And what Iay to you I say to all: Keep awake.'

Excited For My Products

At last, I got a response from the author of the website where I will get the ingredients for my own product. I am pissed with all the terms and conditions of the natural beauty products suppliers so I will make my own product. It's all very cheap and very easy to make.

I have found one supplier of the ingredients I will use for skin care products like lotions, bubble bath, shampoo etc... Their office is about 20 minutes away from my house so I dont have to pay for the shipping. I just need to confirm on Monday if I can get the product from their warehouse by myself.

I can't find a direct supplier of some ingredients that I will need, so I have to order some of it outside Canada. I just need some confirmation about the importation and then I am ready to order all the ingredients.

About 25% of our household expenses are from skin care products like shampoo, conditioner, lotions etc... I will just finished all the chemical skin care products that we have in our house, then we will start using all the products I will make after. I will be saving a lot of money and all will be environmentally friendly. I am so excited to make my own makeup and other skin care products .

Second Product To Sell

I am bored waiting for the response of the website programmer. They are close until Monday for Thanksgiving. I am just waiting for my first 25 pages to be done and I will do the rest of my website. So while I am waiting, I have been searcing for the supplier for my second online store.

I am crossing my fingers but I think I have found a supplier for my second online store. If not, then I might start doing the product myself... lols.. I am so passionate to sell mineral beauty products. It was actually my first choice of products to sell on my fisrt online store but it is soooo hard to find a supplier for this products. So I decided to have fitness equipment to sell on my first online store since I found a supplier who offer flexible dropshipping program for first time online store owner like me.

Do you know how much people all over the world who are looking for mineral beauty products? Click the image for larger view!!

I wanted an online store for this product simply because I have a very sensitive skin. I am looking for a supplier with quality mineral beauty product to sell and I can personally use. I am using Proactive products and it is very expensive. But it works so well on my sensitive skin. I been buying my loose powder from them for CND$35.00. I found out that most of this brand name products are not really the one making their products but mostly small business owners. I can have or even make this loose powder and will only cost me about CND$3.00.

This beauty products is one of my business dreams. At least, I can make it come true through internet..lols.. I thought of looking for a supplier or direct manufacturer for this product and sell it on my online store. But I found out that most of the manufacturers of this products are small business owners and most doesn't know about dropshipping to widen their business market. Most of the suppliers I have contacted are from USA and it is costly to dropship to Canada. I need to sell products with reasonable price so I try looking for a supplier in Canada.

I found out that there is not much supplier of this product in Canada. There are mineral beauty products in Canada, but most are very expensive because or the brand name and imported from USA or UK. Even if I found online stores for this products, the price are very expensive which means that they are not the manufacturer of the product.

While I am searching for a supplier for this product, I came across with one website that shares her free tips on how to make this product. I found out that it is not hard to make this product. It can be fun and a cheap investment. I can imagine how much money I can make if I will make my own product to sell online.

I will actually start to make bath and body products for myself to start with. I ordered the 5 ingredients. I am just not sure about one ingredient to order so I need answers from the author so I can pursue the order. Making one will not take so much of my time, which I really love. Just mixed it and ready to use. It's cheap and very natural. I can't wait to get the ingredients and use it myself. Then I will try the rest of the recipe on my next order.

Working on Christmas Vacation

I have submitted all the requirements needed by the website programmer to start building my online store website. I really really hope to launch it before Christmas, so I can start working on it's links during my Christmas vacation and hopefully make it to the first page of Google!!! ( HIGH HOPEs eyyy!!!). I will also start doing some simple marketing like submitting it to different free directories and free ads. I will only pay ads once I start getting good traffics.

I hope I will be able to start building my second online store too, so I can start working on it, together with my first online store. Unfortunately, it is so hard to find a supplier that will fit my plans and capabilities as a new online store owner. I am trying my best to find a perfect supplier for my second online store.

I maybe working on my Christmas vacation but I will definitely love what I will be working on....

Online Store Suppliers

I am pissed with the website programmers customer service. They are located in USA and I need to call them long distance only to keep me waiting on the phone. GRRR!! I emailed them since Friday and if I didn't email them three times today, I will not know that I need to complete few more details.

So I have completed the details on the website. They will now submit the detailed informations to the website programmer and start building my online store website.

While I am waiting for the website to be build, I have been shopping around the internet to find some products for my next online store. Although I haven't started my first online store, I really think that this is a better way to make money online since you are in control of your business. I have been blogging for more than one year and I have observed how online business goes on the internet. Unless you are very very lucky, then you can be rich on this business. But for most of the internet money makers, one website will not be enough to target good amount of income but decent enough for an extra money.

Beside, I dont have money to start my own business in real life. And having an online store which require small investment, will make it all come true. My first online store is about fitness. I am so eager to have an online beauty store so this has been keeping me busy lately. I trying to find a direct supplier who can give me almost the same flexible deal as the supplier of my first online store.

I have contacted and received response from one manufacturer about music products, but I just need few informations on their wholesale and retail price. Most likely, I will have 3 online store before the end of 2009. So if you know a direct manufacturer or supplier of musical instruments and mineral makeup/beauty products, feel free to contact me.

Sunday Bible Message- The Judegement of the Nations

Matthew 25:31-46
The Judgement of the Nations

'When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the Throne of his glory. All the nations will be gathered before him and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separated the sheep at his goats, and he will put the sheep at his right hand and the goats at the left.

Then the king will say to those at his right hand, "Come you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world, for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, was a strnager and you welcom me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me." Then the righteous will answerr him, "Lord when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?"

And the king will answer them, "Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me". Then he will say to those at his left hand, "You that are accursed, depart from me into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a starnger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me".

Then they also will answer, "Lord, wehn was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty, or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?"

Then he will answer them "Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me". And these wil go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.

Selling The Supplier's Products

It will take time before my online store website will be up on the world wide web. And when it's up on the internet, it will take time and a lot of work before it can be recognize by the search engines and perhaps get a good position on the SERP search.

I am glad that the supplier of the product that I will sell on my online store allow me to start promoting the products anywhere I want. So I might be posting some of the images and description including the prices of the product on my blogs. I might also start selling each product on Ebay and hopefully start making money from it while I am waiting for my online store website.

I might be posting the products on my Embracing Health blog and Health, Fitness and Science blog including the price of each products. Happy weekend to all

Gathering Images For My Online Store

I will take the bus tonight to go to work because I want to buy book on this second hand bookstore on the subway station. I might try to get some idea on how should I make a short description about the products I am going to sell on my Online Store. I would also see, if I can get some images from the book to use for the header and logo of my Online Store.

I will start gathering all the images and description of the products I will put on my website. The website programmer will only create 25 pages and the rest are all mine.

Approval From One Supplier

Yepey!!! I have the approval of one supplier of my second choice product to sell on my online store. I was able to access the whole sale price of the products and the projected income I will get for each product.

I will now start getting some images I need to use on my header and images for my logo. I will also start gathering some of the detailed information and images of the products I want to appear on my homepage.

Most of the suppliers of my first choice product to sell don't do individual orders within Canada. So I need to invest some money to buy the product myself for a wholesale price, do the individual packaging and ship the product to my customer by myself. Nahhhh, too much work for me. Although, one supplier has a minimum wholesale order of $50.00 to ship here in Canada. I can afford that but I will probably step into that process once I learn the real flow of this business. I will still continue to search for a supplier of my first choice product and keep their records for now for my second online store sometime next year... if my first online store will be sucessful.

I am so freaking excited to see even the printscreen of my online store homepage. I hope my hard work will be payed off.

Learning While Waiting

Yay, since last Friday, there is only one supplier of the product that I really really love to sell on my online store, responded to my application. But they don't do individual shipping because they are wholesaler. I will ask if they have distributors that I can contact. I will keep their records for now since they have only limited types of products.

On the other hand, the suppplier of second choice product that I want to sell responded and I have one more form to complete and the business will start rolling.

I am not yet done with the Merchant Bootcamp DVD and I know I have a lot more things to learn before going further. I guess I will give it another one week for the suppliers of the product that I really want to sell, to response on my inquiry before pursuing to my second choice product. While waiting, I will take my time learning everything that I need to learn.

No Response Yet

No response from any of the suppliers that I emailed and I am starting to get anxious. I guess it is too early for me to expect a response. It's only Monday and some part of USA are still sleeping. But what about Australia? perhaps they have already received my request form? I like one of the products from one Dropshipper in Australia. But I still have to see how the business deals will go with all the suppliers that I contacted. I hope to get a response from any of them this week.

Sunday Bible Message- The Parable of the Talent

I was so inspired with the Gospel today. This just made more motivated on reaching my goals. I have so many dreams that someday, I will be able to share with some people who might be needing it.
Matthew 25:14-30
The Parable of the Talents

For it is as if a man, going on a journey, summoned his slaves and entrusted his property to them; to one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. The one who had received the five talents went off at once and traded with them, and made five more talents. In the same way, the one who had the two talents made two more talents. But the one who had recieved the one talent went off and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money. After a long time the master of those slaves came and settled accounts with them. Then the one who had received the five talents came forward bringing five more talents saying "Master, you handed over to me five talents; see I have made five more talents". His master said to him "Well done, good and trustworthy slave; you have been trustworthy in a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master"

And the one who have two talents also came forward saying "Master, you handed over to me two talents; see, I have made two more talents" His master said to him, "Well done, good and trustworthy slave; you have been trustworthy in a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master"

Then the one who had received the one talent also came forward saying "Master I knew that you were a harsh man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not scatter seed; so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours."

But his master replied, "You wicked and lazy slave! You knew, did you, that I reap where I did not sow, and gather where I did not scatter? Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and on my return I would have received what was my own with interest. So take the talent from him, and give it to the one with the ten talents. For all those who have, more will be given, and they will have an abundance; but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away. As for this worthless slave, throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth"

Delayed Plans

I thought it was that fast and easy to start the process of building an online store, but I was wrong. I have to contact and build a business relationship from the dropshipper or supplier of the product that I will to market on my online store. So I started sending emails to all the supplier of the products that I am interested. I need to get the specifiaction of the products, the terms and conditions that I need to follow in selling their products. So I guess, my plan of launching my Online Store this Christmas might be delayed.

Excited To Launch My Website

Looks like a lot of my online buddies are excited to see my online store.. Hmmm.. I was calling the customer service for three times already, to re-schedule the appointment for my programmer who will build my online store, but I can't reach them. While I was waiting for the for the programmer to arrive, I was looking around the different supplier's website of the product that I want to sell on my online store.

I got excited and I was able to rather all the images that I want to see on my future online store. The chat online support told me that I dont have to worry about the description of each products because the supplier will send it all to me to put on my website. I just need to edit some words and sentences for the search engine optimization.

I hope to launch the website before Christmas and I am so freaking excited to start the marketing of my online store. I love the products that I am going to sell and I am definitely the first one to buy on my online store. I will be posting the technical part of my online store creation on my blog Array of Hopes

Getting Around The Software

I am starting to get around the software I am using to build my online store. Tomorrow, I will gather all the informations and images of the products that I will sell on my online store. Hopefully, I'll be able to create meta description for my homepage. I will still try to learn more on how to get the right number of keywords and keyword phrases to put on my online store. I hope and pray that I can be in good index position on the SERP search with this.

It's hard to learn all of these and at the same time, try to catch opps to earn money. Not to mention the maintenance and regular update of all my blogs. I can't let all my blogs sit around just like that, without regularly working on it while I am working on building my online store.

Sunday Bible Message- Jesus Cleanses the Temple

John 2: 13-22
jesus Cleanses the Temple

The Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple he found people selling cattle, sheep, and doves, and the money-changers seated at their tables. Making a whip of cords, he drove all of them out of the temple, both the sheep and the cattle. He also poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. He told those who were selling doves, 'Take these things out of here! Stop making my Father's house a market-place!' His disciples remembered that it was written, 'Zeal for your house will consume me.' The jews then said to him, 'What sign can you show us for doing this?' Jesus answered them, 'Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.' The Jews then said, 'This temple has been under construction for forty-six years, and you will raise it up in three days?' But he was speaking of the temple of his body. After he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this; and they believed the scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.

I Hope and Pray

I am counting the days to attend the Internet Marketing Workshop on Satuday. I am so excited to learn and start my own Online Store. I want to learn when and how to start doing it. I really hope that before the big lay off at work starts by next year, my online business is already generating money. I may not be ready to leave my work at this point, until probably 2 to 3 more years, but if I see a good future ahead on my Internet Marketing journey, I will probably sign up for Volunteer Lay off, get my pacakage and start concentrating my love for making money online. I really hope God will hear my prayers on this.

Work Boots Website

Indirect marketing for your product is a major problem. You may have a business website that is lovely to look at. But the question is, will anyone can find it? A lot of people wander around the internet regularly. One way to get traffic to your business website is to make it interesting. As I've said, you should be an expert on a certain product or services for your visitors to trust you and to keep them coming back to your site.

Take a look workbootsusa.com. Their website is focus on providing quality work boots. They even challenge their visitors to find the lowest price from another website and they are willing to match it or beat it, just to show everyone that they are highly experienced in bringing the best products at the lowest prices.

Happiness For His Failure

Another busy night at work. Everybody is talking about a person whom I had some bad work arguments before. Some say that he was pressured and can't do the job that's why he was asked for forced resignation, some say he has find a better job, etc blablabla. But whatever it is, I believe it wasn't a voluntary resignation. But who am I to judge?

I know right form the very start, he will never succeed because of his arrogance. I never prayed for his failure. But to be honest, I feel happy for his failure although I know that I shouldn't despite of what he and his wife did to me. But this is what I am feeling right now. "IT WAS ONLY LESS THAN A YEAR FOR HIS PROUD ACTIONS. IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG FOR HIM TO FAIL. GOOD FOR HIM...HE DESERVE TO FAIL..!!".

But I pray deep in my heart, that when I woke up, my happiness for his failure is not in my heart anymore.

Sunday Bible Messages- Jesus Thanks His Father

Matthew 11:25-30
Jesus Thanks His Father

At that time Jesus said. 'I thank you Father, Lord of Heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

'Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light'.

I Just Don't Understand

I am a bit frustrated about PPP's unpredictabe system. There are so many things going on in my mind why they are making things quite complicated. I am sometimes thinking that they are probably affected by the recessions that has been going on all over the world. Or they probably need to do an update of their system since they have a lot of new rules for their members lately.

I just don't understand why they will reject a post and say that the content is not relevant to the product while it was open for the said blog in the first place. They shouldn't open the opportunity to blogs that are not qualified for the task. They should also take a look on the task requirements closely before they open it to any members or reject that post for some reason. I just value every minute of my time and I am sure everyone does.
