Licensing My Online Business

I finally paid for the service in Registering my business. I feel so relieve because I know that this will be the start of everything that I have been working for. Whether this business will make me quit my full-time job or not, this business will definitely stay on the internet.

I am not sure if this business will make me quite my full-time job, but all I know is that I have some pleasure doing this in so many ways. It doesn't really necessary about money but I can feel some gladness with simple positive feedbacks from my customers. It's always been my pleasure to answer inquiries that inspire me to keep working because I know that there are people who are interested with my products.

I am not sure how long will I have to stay on my full-time job specially that we are planning to move to a better house. But I am praying so hard that by the time that we are finished with all our extra financial responsibilities, I will definitely quite my full-time job and find something that will give me more time for my business.

Business Progress Software

I finally did the bookeeping of my business and blogging activities using the Spreadsheet. I have to spend some time recalling my knowledge in using the Spreadsheet software. It was about more than 10 years ago since I last used this software. I actually almost forgot everything but I am glad I was able to recall the basic.

Spreadsheet is very useful and economical software for business. Now I can easily monitor the progress of my sales so I can control the expenses for each month.

There are some days that I really don't have the time to do the work for my blogs when I am continously receiving orders. I will also use this software to monitor my blogging activities, so I will know when to start getting back on my feet and how much work to do to cope up with some lost times when I am busy processing some orders.

I worked on the data of my sales for this year and I am suprise to see the progress of my Sales from the graph. I never expected any profit for my business this year, but looking at the graph, the lost was not actually bad for a one year old online business.

The program that I did using the spreadsheet will help me to monitor my business activities to control the cash flow each month.

Fun Night

I had fun at the party last night and I really hope everybody had their fun moments too. I just had fun and I really hope that I never stepped on anyone's ego or shoe this time, which I never intended in any way. It's just fun!!! I seldom had it because my mind is focus on more important things in life. It's Christmas and I really think it's good to share everyone's joy in their own little way.

I guess it was just someone's word that strucked me that I am always trying to be the center of attention, or should I say STAR of the party. Well, I am there to have fun and not to act like a hyprocrite!!! We sometime have to act like a child!! hehehhehe!!!

Everybody have different personality and it just happen that, this is who I am!! But I really think that everybody had their fun moments and if someone didn't, well it's not my problem anymore!!

A New American Auction Site

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Bidazzled. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you love to have fun bidding online, there is a new and interesting auction site. Bidazzled is an online auction site where they sell brand new products at a very low prices everyday. Products cost usually starts from 18 cents or less. Bidazzled is an American Auction site and is designed to provide entertainment, support a charity for lung cancer and offer great bargains and savings over retail prices.

Bidazzled.com was launched in early November to offer savings of up to 90% on name brand merchandise while funding a charity. They have this Penny Auctions or Pay-Per-Bid auction sites, where bids are purchased in advance and then used to bid on merchandise. The price increases a few cents with each bid placed and a few seconds are added to the countdown clock to give others a chance to bid. The auction ends when no other bids are placed. So if a new laptop ends at just a dollar, then you win the laptop for a dollar.

Here are some of the higlights;
- Auction winners usually save over 80% off retail.
- Nobody Loses:
If you don't win, you receive up to 50 Bonus Bids as a thank you for participating, and you can purchase the auction item less the investment you had in the auction. If you win, Bidazzled typically make an offer to buy the item back for either cash (paypal or check), or cash and bids or bids.

In their first month, there have been 2 winners of Nintendo Wii's who have won with just their 5 free bids!

The Way To Market Your Products

She is really funny. I can't believe that after raising her eyebrow everytime she hear about my beauty cosmetic business, and here she is selling beauty skin care too in a very cheap and unprofessional way. Isn't it so funny?

Starting a business is not as easy as anyone can think about. Some people thought that successful business happened overnight. It require a lot of hardwork and dedications. If you want to have money, you should continously work on it. It also require a lot of studies on how to market your products.

Oh well, let us see how and until when, she can do this business. So don't laugh or raise your eyebrow when you see someone starting a business for something that they love to do for a few bucks. For all you know, your way of starting your business may look cheaper than anyone else...

Goodluck my friend, as far as I know selling your skin care products OFF the internet will require a lot of hardwork, money, dedication and patience to make it work. There are so many competition out there and if you are selling your products to the wrong people, you better change your products to fit to your targetted market. Or perhaps, change your marketing strategies.

Today's Excitement and Worries

I feel exhausted and I feel like I am having a sore throat. I just hope it is just because of physical stress and not something serious. If I still have sore throat when I wake tonight and start feeling some body ache, I will call on sick at work. But I really hope everything will be okey with me.

I just need to pick up my order to my supplier and process the order for my customer, and hopefully shipped the order today.

I am pretty excited to make my own body butter and I can't wait to get the ingredients that I will use so I can start making my body butter. I am so addicted with my products... lols..

Continues Blogroll Clean Up

I have deleted so many links on the blogroll of each of my blogs. I am doing this regularly. I am visiting blogs on my blogrolls and I am so devastated to learn that there are so many inactive blogs for more than one year now. There are also many blogs who have deleted my link from their site and I am really pissed about it.

I didn't totally deleted their link on my blogroll by leaving their anchor text behind so that they will know that they've been deleted because I couldn't find my link from their site. So the next time they visit my blog and ask for an exchange link, I will know that they are not a good site to exchange link with.

Expensive International Shipping Cost

The international shipping cost for UK is very expensive. I hope that the customer will not withdraw her order. It was a big order and the weight is quite heavy that's why the shipping cost is unbelievably costly. I feel bad about asking her an additional amount to accomodate the shipping cost to her place. I just wish there is a better and cheaper way to ship orders outside Canada and USA.

My Two New Promotional Calendars

I know I have Print Design blog where I can share my passion in digital print designing. But I have the two Promotional Calendars to be published within a week in a separate post. I can't wait to see its images posted on a blog so I thought of blogging about on this blog.

I love the way how I created a very simple Calendar template into a Custom Design Promotional Calendar simply by putting a cute borders. Very simple yet elegant Calendar to promote your products or services. Visit my Custom Print Design.

Random Blogroll Visit For Cleanup

I will be doing my daily blogroll visit on all of my blogs from now on. I am visiting at least 5 blogs from my blogs randomly. I noticed that there are so many links on my blogroll that are inactive or have not been updating their blogs for one year already. And the worst thing is, they removed my blog link on their blogroll!! A BIG WHY!!! everytime I see this blogger's blog.

Linking a website or blog that doesn't exist or don't have a reciprocal link can have negative effects on the value of your blog or website. It's hard to visit all those blogs listed on my blogroll because there are so many. Aside from that, I have more than 10 blogs with different links on it's blogroll. So I will be doing the visit randomly.

Advantage Of Taking Opportunities

I am starting to take good opportunities from my sponsors now. I realized how much time it's taking me to do some opps. It's been a while since I do some opps this much and beside, there's not much good opportunities since the economic crisis started.

I am sometimes running out of topic to post on some of my blogs and taking opps from my sponsors is helping me to post informative topics for my blogs. Aside from the extra traffic, I am also getting few click on my PPC since most of the product I am reviewing have highly searched keywords. I hope to receive more good offers from advertisers

Good Progress Of New Blogs

I am so happy with the progress of my two new blogs. The keywords search and optimization is working. I've seen it on my Beauty Cosmetics blog and I am doing it now on this two new blogs I just created. How?

I search for a good number of searched keywords using the Reverse Search Keywords software. It is integrated on my webstore builder account. I used this keywords and keywords phrases from the URL, Title and description. For a less than a week blogs, getting someone to subscribe is a great progress already. I really think this two new blogs will give me a good number of clicks on my PPC sometime next year.

It will be a lot of work but I need to regularly update and start submitting to different live directories to gain good page rank and eventualy place on good position on the search. I am thinking of creating a Travel Blog once I saw a good result on this two new blogs until next summer.

I Can't Focus

I am going nuts. I keep doing something I am not suppose to do which makes me feel exhausted. There are more important things to do but my mind is preoccupied in doing something I am not suppose to. I keep playing around my templates and my software instead of doing more important things for my business.

Ahhh I just want to free my mind and I do things I want to do. It makes me feel relax and free from all the problems I have to think about.

I hate the homeowner assign to all the problem we are having in our townhouse. There is a leak on my basement and the person who is suppose to look on this is not returning my call. This is really need to be fix and this has been my problem since last winter. I am going nuts. I don't know why God keeps challenging my faith. I just need to keep my mind off from all this things. I really can't focus whenever I have things in my head that make me nuts!!!

Hoping To Make Money From Two New Blogs

I am so happy with the layout design that I just made one my Print Design blog. I can't wait to start working on my two new blogs after the transition of it's new custom domain url.

I am not sure if I will change the layout of my Soap blog but for now, I think it's okey. I am thinking of making it pink since my Soap product is also included is also included on my ecommerce website. But I dont have the time to play around with the code so I will let it stay this way for now.

I really hope that I can make extra income from this two new blog domains next year.

Domain For Blogging

I purchased two domain name for my two new blogs today. This time I know how to use the right keywords and keywords that has a good number or search on the internet. I used the reverse keywords search of my online store provider. I find it very effective through my Beauty Blog.

I dont know if this feature of Google Adsense is new but I only learn lately about the top search panel on my Google Adsense account. It shows there which of my blog gets most of the click each day. And I found out that it was my Beauty Blog where I get most of my clicks in Google Adsense.

My Beauty Blog actually is all about my beauty products. I never thought that I can make money from this blog through pay per click by simply blogging about my own products.

So since I know the importance of having a custom domain name in blogging for money, I thought of buying my two new blogs and hoping to make money from this two new blogss sometimes next year. It's going to be an added work for me but I will take that. I like learning on this online business.

New Ideas In My Head

I am busy and still too much thing to do. Work never stop and it just keeps coming. If the only thing I do the whole day are the things that I love to do, I will never complain. But weekend is almost done and my time to do what I love to do will be restricted again for 2 to 3 hours.

Things I want to do keeps poping up into my head. New ideas that I want to do but just don't have enough time to do it. This is the problem with me, when new ideas pop up into my head, I just want to jump and do it right away. While I know there is nothing and noone is pushing me to do it right away. It can wait but at the back of my mind, I really want to do it now.

I want to create more colors for my mineral blush and mineral eyeshadow that will match the color for my new mineral lipgloss. That would take some work to do. I will create the stuff, take a picture, fix the size of the photo to fit my webstore, create a good title and description, not to mention each meta tags and start blogging about it.

Then here comes another passion inside me that I thought would be a great product. I just started a blog about it, about two days ago. I am happy with the template design that I made. I search for the possible income for the keywords of this products and woohlaaa, there is a potential market for this. So I am planning to buy a domain name for this since I will be aiming to make money from this blog, and start working on it during my Christmas vacation. I might create a webstore for this products sometime next year when I have the time. I wish I have the time to do it all right away.. It's frustrating!!

So since I just created another new blog, I thought of holding on in buying a domain name for my Soap blog for a while. This new products I am planning to work on, is quite different from my cosmetic products. I might work on my soap blog sometime next year, if I can... Well, I am not a super woman!!! I wish I can have it all in my hand. It's a lot of work but, guess what? These are my passion!!

Tired Of Working For Money

I feel a lot better after the down moments last Sunday. I am still hoping and wishing everyday, that someday I will wake up to do the things that I love to do. Making money in doing things that my heart wants and not just because of money alone. I am so tired of working simply because of money.

I am so jealous of those people who are making money by doing what they love to do. Did they work hard to get it or God just simply gave it to them? I wonder how long should I work hard until God hear me. Or maybe he can hear me, but still not ready to give it to me.

Down, Stuck and Jealous

There are days that I feel so much joy in my heart. But right now, I feel so down!! There are so many things in life that I should be thankful for but why do I feel so frustrated. I feel like time is running out. That I should be in hurry to get there, but here I am stuck into something. I am blaming someone but shouldn't I be blaming myself?

Life is so wonderful, but right now I feel like it's dark everywhere. I don't know why but I feel so stuck. I am jealous of some people's life that I never even met in person. I sometimes don't want to believe what they say about their life because I find it impossible to have it for myself right now. Is it true? Is it possible? Or they are just making me dream!!! AHHHH, I SHOULD BE HAPPY!!! I have so many things to be happy. I pray that when I wake up, I am back with a happy heart!!

Frustrating Week Ahead

Grrr!!! the weekend is over and I wasn't able to finish the second page of the brochure for my products. I keep doing unnecessary random things and too lazy to do the important things. I guess this is part of my frustrations. I just want to do what comes into my head without thinking which is more important. My head is in chaos and cannot organize my head to prioritize things.

Anyway, I am on my way to finish the laundry and do few walking or dancing to keep me energize. I will porbably go back to bed after, and prepare myself to attend the mass. I wanted to cook pansit (filipino noodles) but I don't think I can. Ahhhh!!! it is frustrating to think that it is going to be another crazy week!!!

Absence At The Service

We were not able to attend the CFFL service again tonight because I have to drop my kids to their friends house for trick or treating. I dont want them to go there walking so we have no choice but to be absent again to the service tonight. I hope God will understand our situation.

I feel so lazy to do anything today. I feel so tired and I really want my body to rest all day. I will just do my household chores tomorrow. I hope to finish it all before the church.

But I am glad that I was able to create one color for lipgloss today. I will try to create 5 more colors next week and hopefully to be able to post it after, on my webstore. I love my business, I wish I have the energy to do everything I have in mind. But my body is so tired during the weekend. Ahhhhh!! I wonder when will it happen?

Homemade Business Brochures, Catalog, Calendars, Greeting Cards and more

I have been wanting to create a website that offers different Business Paper solutions like business brochures, business catalog, business or personal business calendars, business or personal greeting cards and more. This are the things that my heart desires to do all day. It's my frustrations right now, but I know someday or sooner, I will be able to do this on fulltime basis.

I might be creating a blog about the Business Papers solutions sometime next year and see how it goes through blogging. I might offer these stuff for my wholesalers, resellers and dropshippers from my webstore for a very affordable price. So the design should compliment the tyoe of products that I have on my webstore. Visit me All Natural Cosmetics 4u to learn more about my products.

Updating Multiple Blogs

I have created few draft articles to be automatically publish within the week. I wanted to save time in regualrly updating my blogs because I noticed that Google also punished blogs that are not regularly updated.

It's not easy to manage multiple blogs but it's the best and cheaper way to promote my products. It is also a good source of extra income whenever I don't have orders for my products.

Google Adsense also help in giving me extra income by simply putting the code on each of my blogs. I simply optimized my blog and focus on creating relevant contents to receive few clicks everyday. I just hope that my Google Adsense income will improve this time, now that I am focusing on regularly updating all my blogs.

Weekend Service To God

I had a terrible headache this morning. So I went to bed at 7am and forgot to set my alarm clock. Nobody woke me up so we can attend the 11am Sunday Mass. Geee!! I feel so guilty not going to church today because we didn't attend the mass last Sunday as well. I was the only one who is encouraging everyone inside this house to attend the mass every Sunday, while hubby is the one who encourage us to attend our Saturday CFFL service.

I think this is both important to do during the weekend for God. It's hard to do both regularly, because of our busy life. We always miss one each week and most of time, our commitment to attend the Sunday Mass is suffering. Because we are both exhausted during the Saturday night service. We are trying hard and I hope God will give us more strenght to do it both, regularly.

Small Way To Serve God

I am too lazy to do my new soaps today. I am also suppose to create new colors for my eyeshadow but my laziness keeps on hunting me. I am not sure if I can do this but I will try my best.

Somebody is inviting us for dinner tonight but we have to attend to our weekend service in CFFL. My kids are willing to attend the dinner that we were invited to but I dont know if hubby will want us to skip the regular Saturday service. I know that attending the Satuday night service is much more important because this is our only way to serve God in a very small amount. I hope my friend will understand if we cannot attend her dinner tonight.

Short Budget

I am supposed to order some supply I will use for soap making and mineral makeup. But our budget is short this week so I have to withdraw all the money I made both from my blogging and my webstore.

Some of the remaining expenses we spend on our vacation in Seattle came in on our bills. And I am very thankful that the money I made from the internet help us in paying those bills.

I will just wait until I save another money from blogging and selling my products so I can buy those supplies I need. I know God will help me on this soon.

Sharing With God

It feel so good to be able to share at least few of our blessings with some people on our CFL community. We cooked spaghetti and my daughter Kimberly cooked one tray of cookies. This is our only way to share some blessings.

I know that there are many struggles in our life, but God is so great to us. He never leave us in times of troubles. I may have some shortcomings with him, but still he is always there for us. I really hope that we will always have the time to do all the things that we can share in his name.

Happy With The Progress

I can't wait to offer my soaps of different scents. I will combine the scent with my body butter and body creams. I am still thinking if I can create a bubblebath with the same scent as my soap for combinnation, as well as my shampoo and conditoner. I hope can do this before x-mas buying season as my X-mas gift items.

I am so happy with the progress of my online business. Everyday I am receiving inquiries and subscription. The number of orders are improving. I really wish that this will continue to grow until I reach my goal.

Sharing My Blessings

Me and hubby prepared some foods and drinks for the CFL meeting. Good thing that we decided to prepare two big servings of food. I am so glad that the food were not short for everyone.

It feel so good to be able to share some blessings. This my only way to share my blessings with my small success on my ecommerce endeavor. I just wish I can have more time and perhaps money to share, but I can only share what we have for a moment. I know sooner, I will have more to share. Not only financially, but time wise.

My business is continously recieving orders. Some customers who ordered the free samples are coming back to order for larger batches. It feel so good to be able to offer something beneficial for everyone. I feel so glad to know that there are people who were pleased with the quality of products that I personally created. This inspire me create more products that I know will be beneficial to a lot of people with a very competitive price.

I Can See My Dreams

Yepeey, I have another order and the number of orders each week is increasing. Even if the orders I am receiving are sample orders, I am happy because most of the people who ordered the samples keeps coming back for larger order. I really hope and pray that this is already the start of what I have been waiting for.

God is so good. He is always there to show me how to reach my goal. There are so many ups and down but after those hard work and sincere prayers, I can already see and feel the result. And I will continue to work hard so my business will make all my plans and dreams to come true.

Some Loss From Start

I am happy with another order I receive today. Although I am not making any profit from this, because I have to order some ingredients to my supplier and they require a minimum amount per order, but I will be using these ingredients for many times for different orders. And I also included to my order some of the things that we are using at home, so that's okey. I need to accomodate orders from my website. I believe that for a new business, there will be some loss.

Orders are coming in and I am so happy about it. I really hope that my business will continue to grow so I can someday work on this on a full-time basis. I have so many plans in my head but I can't move because I have other fulltime job. Ahhh, patience and I know God will grant my wish.

Ready For The Week With Less Stress

I feel a lot better now. I have been working things out since I am absent from work for two nights. I organized my closet and my files. I need more organization for my products but it`s more organized than before. So I feel less stress and ready to face my busy working housewife`s life.

I will start my blogwalking next week. I will also start submitting my blogs and website to some live directories for maintenance. I will continously create articles on my blogs to promote each of my products. I find blog articles very effective tools in online marketing. I will be adding one to two products a week if I can to send new product update during the weekend. This also one great way to market your product.

I will continue to focus on loosing some weight before the end of the year. I haven`t walked my dog eversince we came home from our vacation in Seattle, so I will start spending time with her again next week.

My hopes and dreams are hanging. But I am so happy that my business is doing great. It`s making me smile each time I see the progress.

Broken Thoughts

I was so busy since I came home from our vacation in Seattle. I gained so much weight which made feel so depressed. I spend too much money that ruined my budget for the year, and I felt frustrated. I need to pick the little broken pieces of my thoughts and put it back on the right places.

I am starting with eating the right food and a daily exercise. Spend less and wisely to pay all the extra expenses. I hope God will forgive me and help me to build all those broken thoughts. Waaaa, I need to loose weight.!!!

A Sudden Slow Down

I was talking to my fellow merchants and they are all complaining about the slow sales from their ecommerce site. Well then this explain why I probably don't have any sales for more than 2 weeks now. I used to have about 2 to 4 orders a week and inquiries and subscriptions almost everyday, and all of a sudden, I have none.

Oh well, business is business. I guess I should get used to this and just continue to have fun. I love playing with my natural cosmetics and now I am getting hooked on soap making using Melt and Pour. I have so many things to do and add on my webstore and I guess I should focus on that until I start getting sales again.

Sunday Bible Message- The Words Of Eternal Life

John 6:53, 60-69

Jesus said to them, "I am telling you the truth; if you do not eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you will not have life in yourself."
The Words of Eternal Life

Many of his followers heard his and said, "This teaching is too hard. Who can listen to it?"

Without being told, Jesus knew that they were grumbling about this, so he said to them, "does this make you want to give up? Suppose then, that you should see the Son Of Man go back up to the place where he was before? What gives life in God's Spirit: human power is of no use at all. The words I have spoken to you bring God's life-giving Spirit. Yet some of you do not believe." (Jesus knew from the very beginning who were the ones that would not believe and which one would betray him.) And he added, "this is the very reason I told you that no people can come to me unless the Father makes it possible for them to do so".

Because of this, many of Jesus' followers turned back and would not go with him any more. So he asked the twelve disciples, "And you- would you also like to leave?".

Simon Peter answered him "Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life. And now we believe and know that you are the Holy One who has come from God."

Seattle Vacation Next Week

I just can't stop thinking about soap making for some reason. I just need to do this to satisfy my curiousity of creating soap. Crazy it may sound, but I can't help it. So I will order some of the soap making supplies to my supplier tomorrow, and pick them up the next day.

I will also order the Essential Oil diffuser as a wedding gift to my cousin in Seattle Washington. I thought of buying this for them because I find it as a unique wedding gift and it's very handy for our travel to Washington next week.

Then I might just buy an Essential Oil burner plus 5ml of Pure Essential oil for my cousin who will accomodate us on our stay in Washignton. Me and my kids are excited on our vacation in Seattle next week.

Patience For Ecommerce

It's very time consuming to answer all those inquiries I am receiving about my products. I sometimes have to answer 4 to 5 emails at the same time. But that's okey. This is a very good sign about a good future ahead. I will patiently answer all those inquiries and continue doing what I have been doing.

I have been wanting to add all the products that I want on my webstore but time is killing me. I have to get some sleep so I will have the energy to work on my fulltime job.

I also have so many offers for advertisements on my blogs with good PR but, I only take those offers where products are relevant to the content on my blogs. Blogging for money is very unstable since all depend on Google's PR distribution. The hard part is, Google's system in giving PR is very unprecitable and complicated. So I'd rather focus on working on my ecommerce endeavor. Just more patience is needed.

Weekend Religious Activity

Eversince we started attending the CFFL, our regular Sunday Mass suffers. It's so hard to be active in a religious community with this busy life that we have. We tried to attend to both every week. Every Saturday night for CFFL household meeting which can take from 2 to 3 hours and the Sunday Mass. Plus we have to do all the household chores like cleaning the house, catching up the laundry, grocery etc.. Easy to say that we can do it, but I sometimes feel frustrated not to be able to attend to any of these every Saturday and Sunday. I lack sleep and sometimes crave to just sit infront of the TV and relax. I wish God will give us more energy to do it all

Empty Sales

I finally bought the labels I will used for the images of my products. I am not sure if can start doing it this weekend because we will be busy for the preparation of the household meeting. But I will difinitely start doing it one day at a time next week.

I have no new sales this week. Just the three orders I got from last weekend. But I have been receiving subscription everyday and some inquiries. I wish it will be converted into sales one day.

I will try to add few more products and send a new product updates message later. I find sending updated one effective marketing strategy. This sometimes remind subscribers about their interest on my products. Ahhhh, I will relax for a while and continue sleeping so I will have more energy to do everything tomorrow. Have a great weekend

Time To Do My Pleasure

The household meeting will be held in our house on Saturday night. So we will be busy for the preparation and I don't think I will be able to start my plan for changing the images of my products on my webstore. But that's okey. God first before anything. I am sure God will find a way for me to finish my plans.

I have so many things in mind that I wanted to do. My products and my online business is not just for money alone. I don't find it as a work that I have to do, but something that I want to do because it gives me pleasure inside. The only thing that frustrates me is the lack of time doing it all.

Images For My Products

I really need to create original images for my products. This is one good way to gain trust from people who are visiting my webstore. This shows people how I present my products. I noticed that images really captures the attention and make people curious to what's more inside my website. Most of the visitors who bought from my webstore bought my products with original images on it.

As an online shopper myself, everytime I buy items online, images is where my eyes are focus. I want to see how will I receive the items that I will order.

I dont know how and when will I do this, but first hand, I need to buy clear labels. I want to present my products as simple as I can since all my products are NATURAL.

Sunday Bible Message- Jesus The Bread Of Life

John 6:41-51
Jesus The Bread Of Life

The people started grumbling about him, because he said, "I am the bread that came down from heaven." So they said, "This man is Jesus son of Joseph, isn't he? We know his father and mother. How, then, does he now say he came down form heaven?"

Jesus answered, "Stop grumbling among yourselves. People cannot come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them to me; and I will raise them to life on the last day. The prophets wrote, 'Everyone will be taught by God.' Anyone who hears the Father and learns from him comes to me. This does not mean that anyone has seen the Father; he who is from God is the only one who believes his eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert, but they died. But the bread that comes from heaven is of such a kind that whoever eats it will not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If you eat this bread, you will live forever. The bread that I will give you is my flesh, which I give so that the world may live".

More Business Thoughts

Nothing much going on with my online store. But the traffic statistic is getting better. I was so inspired about the number of orders I got last week. I am thinking if I will still get the same number of orders this week and the following week.

That number of orders I got from last week, woke me up from my laziness to update and add more products on my webstore. Aside from the fact that I really don't have enough time to complete the products that I want to add on my webstore, I started loosing hopes which made me feel lazy working on it as much as I did before. It frustrates me whenever I can't finish what I need to do and end up spending less time with my family, so I slowed down a little bit. I feel good when I slowed down working on my online business. I feel less stress and was able to spend more time with my kids.

Now here I am, starting to feel so inspired again and wanted to work more time for all the product that I want to add, and do all the changes that I want for my webstore.... But nope..., It will still be my family and God on top of my priority. My business can wait and if it will happen, it will happen.

Sunday Bible Message- Jesus The Bread Of Life

John 6:25-35
Jesus the Bread Of Life

When the people found Jesus on the other side of the lake, they said to him, "Teacher, when did you get here?".

Jesus, answered, "I am teling you the truth, you are looking for me because you ate the bread and had all you wanted, nor because you understood my miracles. Do not work for food that spoils; instead work for the food that lasts for eternal ife. This is the food which the Son of Man will give you, because God, the Father, has put his mark of approval on him."

So they asked him, "What can we do in order to do what God wants us to do?"

Jesus answered, "What God wants us to do is to believe in the one he sent."

They replied, "What miracle will you perform so that we may see it and believe you? What will you do? Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, just as the scripture say, 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat,'"

"I am telling you the truth," Jesus said "What Moses gave you was not" the bread from heaven; it is my Father who give you the real bread from heaven. For the bread that Gove gives is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world."

"Sir" they asked him, "give us this bread always."

"I am the bread of life," Jesus told them, "Those who come to me will never be hungry; those who believe in me will never be thirsty."

I Can My See Dreams

I am so happy that my webstore is starting to get some sales. Six months after I build and work hard, I am finally getting real time sale and not just free samples. I am really hoping that this is finally the start of my answered prayers.

I will continue and I will never stop praying for guidance with our Lord. My heart is full of joy and thankfulness that finally, I can see all the hard work that I have done in building my website. I really hope that my business will continue to grow and help me to finish all our financial responsilities. I will continue to wish, hope and pray for my dream of working on my business in a full time basis in the near future.

It's Friday Once Again

At last, it's FRIDAY!!.. Weekend is the only time that I can have peace in my mind and in my heart. This is the time when my mind is far from those chaotic world I am in at work. I may have some bad moments from my life on the internet, but not as chaotic as I have in my workplace.

I am always praying that someday, all my hopes and dreams to be a work at home mom will come into reality. But I dont know if it will ever happen at all. But still, I am holding on to my plan of changing the kind of environment that I have, as soon as my financial concerns are over.

The traffic, as well the sales of my webstore is getting better each month. I am having inquiries and subscriptions everyday too, which is a good sign that my webstore is starting to get qualified visitors. I am not sure if my ecommerce will make my plan of quiting my job to come true. I can only pray hard for it.

Slowly Going Away

I am so glad that I am slowly getting offers for some of my blogs with good PR. I can feel that the world wide economic crisis is slowly going away. I really hope that everything will be up next year and the year that is coming.

I am happy that I can start seeing few bucks on my paypal account by doing few offers here and there. I was able to buy few personal things and some for my family from my blogs.

Sunday Bible Message- Jesus Send Out The Twelve Disciples

Jesus Send Out The Twelve Disciples

Then Jesus went to the villages around there, teaching the people. He called the twelve disciples together and sent them out two by two. He gave them authority over the evil spirits and ordered them, "Don't take anything with you on the trip except a walking stick- no bread, no beggar's bag, no money in your pockets. Wear sandals, but don't carry an extra shirt". He also told them, "Whenever you are welcomed, stay in the same house until you leave that place. If you come to a town where people do not welcome you or will not listen to you, leave it and shake the dust off your feet. That will be a warning to them!"

So they went out and preached that people should trun away from their sins. They drove out m,any demons, and rubbed olive oil on many sick people and healed them.

Saturday, July 11, 2009

Continous Effort

At least 2 to 3 times a week, I have new subscriptions, inquiries and few incomplete orders. I never stop answering inquiries as soon as I received the notification. I also never stop communicating to those who have incomplete orders to know why they didn't complete their orders.

It's very uninspiring to continously work on something that don't have the returns that you have been expecting, but I guess I need to stay foot and wait until the economic crisis is over.

On the otherhand, I am happy that at least, my effort on how to reach people who are searching for my products has been a success. This is by working hard in doing everything that I have been learning. I still have so much things to learn and do, but time is my enemy. I will just be waiting for the right time.

Our 12th Year Wedding Anniversary

The week is almost over again and here I am, I did nothing new for my business. I just feel so lazy and uninspired. My mind is so focus now with my family that I have neglected for quite some time. It's our 12th year wedding anniversary and I am so glad that we were able to stay this long. I wish for more years to come together with the man I love.

I was so mad yesterday with my husband about some silly thing. I called him and kinda nag about it. He was late for about 30 minutes going home from work and called him with my angry voice on the phone. He said that he just bought something and he will be home soon. And when he got home, he hand me a box of cake and a small gift box. It was Dulce Vita Christian Dior perfume. hhehehehe. That's why he was late...!!!

Sunday Bible Message- Jesus Is Rejected at Nazareth

Mark 6:1-6
Jesus Is Rejected at Nazareth

Jesus left that place and went back to his hometown, followed by his disciples. On the Sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue. Many popele were there and when they heard him, they were all amazed. "Where did he get al this?" they asked. "What wisdom is this that has been given him? How does he perform miracles? Isn't he the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren't his sisters living here?" And so they rejected him.

Jesus said to them "Prophets are respected everywhere except in their own hometown and by their relatives and their family".

He was not able to perform any miracles there, except that he placed his hands on a few sick people and healed them. He was greatly surprised, because the people did not have faith.

Things I Realized

I am off from work for one week and the more I stay at home, the more I realizd how nice it is to be able to stay closer with my family. How nice it is to take good care of our house myself. Everything is clean and organized.

But it is somewhat sad to stay to home the whole day. Life is boring and not much people interactions. This made me realized how lucky I am to still have a job while a lot of people are loosing their jobs. I am very thankful to God for taking good care of me and my family. I guess life can never be perfect. I will cross the bridge when the time comes that I am ready to work at home in a full time basis.

Paid for Blogging Again

I am glad to do 3 opps yesterday for 3 of my blogs. PPP is back but with different system, and website. I miss those days that I am making a decent extra income from blogging. And most of my opportunities were from PPP. I feel sad when their offers starts to get slower and cheaper.

Although I only got one opps from PPP, I am glad to take the other two relevant opps from my other sponsor. I really wish that this time, PPP will be back for good. I hope this time they will really screen their bloggers so they will have better quality paid post for their advertiser.

Understanding The Concept Of Spiritual Groups

We had an interesting home session for Couple's For Christ. I still couldn't get the deep concept of it but I still don't know why we keep on attending this community. I guess I can feel that hubby like it. But to be honest, I still can't get the deepest personal purpose of it.

As far as I can see, the purpose of building this commnunity is to develop group of people for friendship where their communication will revolves around the Lord' words of wisdom. Which is very good instead of wasting time and effort with some group of people whose main topic is about other's people's life.

However, there is some part of me that is not YET comfortable. Maybe because I have not develop the deep relationship with the group of people that I am assigned with. We dont have anything in common except that we all believe in the real concept of being in this community.

Travel Plan In Seattle Washington

We are planning to attend my cousin's wedding on Septmeber in Seattle Washington. I still have two months to prepare our travel. My cousin suggested us to drive to Buffalo New York to fly going to Seattle Washington for cheaper airfare.

Hubby will start working on his and our twin's Canadian Passport while I search for a better parking spot in Buffalo. I will also have to work on finding a good place for our dog while we are gone for a cheaper price. Dogsitter is expensive!!

Thinking about seeing my cousins whom I haven't seen for such a long time, makes me so excited. They will be accomodating us, so our expenses will only be the airfare. I really hope things will turn out good.

First Module With Perfect Attendance

I had few fun moments on the last session of Couples For Christ first module. I admit that I still have some doubts deep in my heart about my sincerity of understanding the real concept of this Catholic Religious Community. I still couldn't see what this community will do to find the deepest Faith in my heart. The Faith that I presently have already given me enough strenght to face many life's struggles and I know that there will be more. Fear and worries still hunt me in my dreams and faith is my only hope.

My interest and excitement is empty to tell myself how long should I be on this community. But for some reason, I just can't stop attending the session even if there are moments in my heart that there are some empty space that needs to be filled to give my heart the highest enthusiast in continuing the sessions. There are some challenges in my heart but me and my husband were able to complete the first module of 9 sessions with perfect attendance.

Second Order For This Week

I just processed new order today and my husband will mail the package this afternoon. I am so glad to shipped two orders this week. I really hope that this will continue to grow as the days go by.

I have loosen myself on working double time for my online business thinking that it will make my plan to quit my job earlier than I expected. But I was wrong. I shouldn't push myself too hard on something that can't happen as I wanted to. Things will happen if it is meant to happen. Receiving inquiries and small orders just made me more inspired.

Mistake On The Software

I was busy processing two orders yesterday. From this orders, I saw few things that I need to change on my software and the system or ordering on some of my category products. I actually didn't make any money form this orders because I made a mistake on the shipping program. But that's okey, good customer service is more important to me than making profit at this point. I am learning from my mistake.

Sunday Bible Message- Jesus Eats The Passover

Mark 14:12-16, 22-26
Jesus Eats the Passover Meal with His Disciples

On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the day the lambs for the Passover meal were killed, Jesus' disciples ask him, "Where do you want us to go and get the Passover meal ready for you?"

Then Jesus sent two of them with these instructions; "Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house he enters, and say to the owner of the house: "The Teacher says, Where is the room where my disciples and I will eat the Passover meal? Then he will show you a large upstairs room, fixed up and furnished, where you will get everything ready for us".

The disciples left went to the city, and found everything just as Jesus had told them; and they prepared the Passover meal.

The Lord's Supper

While they were eating, Jesus took a piece of bread, gave a prayer of thanks, broke it, and gave it to his disciples. "Take it" he said, "this is my body".

Then he took a cup, gave thanks to God, and handed it to them; and they all drank from it. Jesus said "This is my blood which is poured out for many, my blood which seals God's covenant. I tell you, I will never again drink this wine until the day I drink the new wine in the Kingdom of God."

Then they sang a hymm and went out to the Mount of Olives.

Interested on Business Site

Somebody contacted my through email about my products. They are trying to make sure that my webstore and my business is not a spam. She is interested to visit my site but I explained to her that there is no factory; that my products are homemade products.

I have to prepare a small part of my basement where I place some of the ingredients that I use on making my cosmetics products. I will buy some containers and place the powders on the container. This way, my homebased business will look more presentable incase she really visit my place and for everyone who are interested to see how I make my products.

While Waiting For That Day

I have another subscriber for my webstore today. I am glad that almost everyday, I am receiving inquiries and subscriptions. I am not wondering why this is taking so long to happen. I guess the economic crisis that we are all experiencing is the main culprit. I will just keep on working and updating my website until the day come. At least I feel more free now and have more time with myself and with my family.

I am walking with my dog everyday and I can watch TV Shows now. I also have time to maintain my regular household chores. I am just crossing my fingers that before the day that I have been waiting is here, my business is already in a good position.

My Mineral Makeup is focused on Oily and Acne Prone skin because this is the type of skin that I have. But I also want to created a Mineral Makeup that focus on different types of skin problems like dry and mature type of skin. Reading the articles that Scrubs have, just gave me so much insight about different types of Makeup that women from different part of the world have been looking for. I was able to get a lot of ideas on what women usually are looking for in a Makeup for their type of skin.

Now that summer is on it's way, I have been trying to figure out the best way to wear my makeup, to make me look fresh and natural all day. Reading the tips and tricks on proper way of applying Makeup according to skin type, color and season have given me so much valuable knowledge that I can share to my readers.

So if you are looking for a place to find the latest fashion and trend in beauty the healthy way, I highly recommend Scrubs. This is more than just another clinical nursing site. This site is specially made to give informations that will help you face the challenges that you might have. You will find different career advice and many inspiring stories, beauty and fashion tips as well as different ideas that will guide you to good living.

Sunday Chores

I feel so free and just leaving everything to God. In my mind and in my heart, I will always pray that someday my hard work will be paid off and God will make it happen. I am still doing my regular work for my business, but I want my mind and heart to lose a little bit of so much passion and anxiousness.

I am busy relaxinf my mind watching Filipino TV shows. I have to catch a lot of thing on my house and I am planning to do it one day at a time. We spend about 5 hours at the church yesterday, praying and prasing him. And I hope God will understand if we will not attend the mass today.

I am just waiting for my daughters to wake and so we can start cleaning the house. I have done a thorough cleaning on our kitchen and the dining area yesterday, including the closet for the jackets. We will do the cleaning for the wholesahouse today and I will try to maintain it like I used to do before I was too much hooked up with blogging. I will try to catch at least one opps before I turn off my computer.

Waiting For The Time

I feel so light now that I am starting to accept the fact that it can never happen in one snap. I can't run after the time. I can't make it happen at the time that I wanted it to happen. But I just can't forget and leave everything behind. It is already part of my daily living. I just need to move on and set my goal without relying on something that is not tangible.

I am thankful that while a lot of people are loosing their jobs, and here I am - still busy with my work. Yet I am complaining while I should be thankful! It is just so painful to hear when someone will make a comment trying to discourage my plans. Is money more important than happiness. I am just waiting for the right time.

I Woke Up In A Long Dream

I woke up that one thing is not include on my dreams anymore but will always be part of my hopes and my daily life. I guess I have loosen myself and made me feel free in some ways. There are so many things in my life that I have neglected but not wasted. And I need to catch up. One thing I've learned from the Couple's For Christ sessions that God always hear us but there are some things that he will and he will never give because there is always a good reason behind. Perhaps there is a right time for what I am asking, but I will never loose hope that someday, it will be given to me.

I feel a lot better and feel so free after almost two years of working so hard to make it all happen. But it's seems that I have gotten so far, that I felt that I have to loosen myself. Something woke me up that dreams will happen if you will make it happen but will be given at the right time. There are more important things to do and to prioritize while waiting for it to happen.

Sunday Bible Message- Jesus Appears To His Disciples

John 20:19-23
Jesus Appears To His Disciples

It was late that Sunday evening, and the disciples were gathered together behind locked doors, because they were afraid of the Jewish authorities. Then Jesus came and stood among them "Peace be with you". he said. After saying this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples wre filled with joy at seing the Lord. Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father sent me, so I send you", Then he breathed on them and said, "Received the Holy Spirit. If you forgive people's sins, they are forgiven, if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven".

I can only pray that all my hard work and dedications will have the result that I have been praying for. I dont want to be a millionaire or to receive tons of money. I simply want to work at home and be able to do the things that I love doing, while I have more time with my family.

Ahhh, I really hope that this will all make it happen. It's hard to keep working without knowing where will it go or will it go anywhere at all. All I have is just faith in my mind and in my heart.

I have so many plans and I couldn't move. I can only do all my plans when everything that I have been working for will give me something to do all my plans. Right now, I can only hope for the best.

Hoping To Make It Happen

I am so happy that another interesting inquiry I receive today from my webstore. She has been selling different items on the internet for quite a long time now. She used to sell Mineral Makeup through dropshipping program. But her supplier don't deliver their Mineral Makeup outside the USA. So she stopped selling Mineral Makeup on her website. Since I take International Orders, she become interested in selling Mineral Makeup again. She created a dropshipping account on my webstore and I approved her application.

Two days ago, somebody purchased my downloadable Mineral Makeup Recipe. I just tried using the download system on my storebuilder account to see how it work and just created a simple recipe using notepad. I can't believe someone will purchase it. She even pay for the shipping while she have the option to choose the Free Shipping since it is a downloadable item. So I refunded the shippping cost on her account. I re-write the recipe for her, so she can clearly understand. I send the recipe to her email because she was having trouble downloading the recipe.

And yesterday, somebody wants to order the eyeliner pencil container. The container is not available on my webstore but I told her I can arrange the price and the shipping cost for her. I just need to know how many container she need. If she will need more than 5, I will have to order it from my supplier in USA so it will take longer.

Ahhh, I can see what are the products that people are looking for. Most of the people who are visiting my webstore are homemade cosmetics makers and looking for supplies they will need to start a business. I need money and time to invest to this kinds of products.

I am happy that my webstore is now starting to get people for my products. I really hope that God will make it all happen

Sunday Bible Message- Jesus The Real Vine

John 15:1-8
Jesus The Real Vine
"I am the real vine, and my Father is the gardener. He breaks off every branch in me that does not bear fruit, and he prunes every branch that does bear fruit, so that it will be clean and bear more fruit. You have been made clean already by teaching I have given you. Remain united to me, and I will remain united with you. A branch cannot bear fruit by itself it can do so only if it remains in the vine. In the same way you cannot bear fruit unless you remain in me.

"I am the vine and you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will bear much fruit; for you can do nothing without me. Those who do not remain in me are thrown out like a branch and dry up, such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, where they are burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, then you will ask for anything you wish, and you shall have it. My Father's glory is shown by your bearing much fruit; and in this way you become my disciples.

The picture above is the gift I receive from my twin daughters. I am so lucky and very happy the God has given such a wonderful gift in life that one mother could ever had. I sometimes questions myself if I am worthy enough to receive such a wonderful children like them. I bear such a wonderful people in this world.
Happy Mother's day to all the mothers

Who Are You and Who Am I?

They judge my dreams, eagerness and my hope that someday my business will make me quit my job. They see me someone arrogant. That's why I kept my mouth shut to people who are supposed to be there to support me. I kept my ups and down HOPES about building my business, to keep them from judging me. They are laughing behind my back.

I try my best to make my time worthy. I love dreaming and hoping. I like working on reaching my dreams. I dont care if I fail or succeed, as long as I enjoy what I am doing.

But what about them? they enjoy watching TV but complaining about their life without doing nothing to get what they want. Will I judge them?

Who am I to judge them? And Who are they to judge me? Who am I to laugh on their way of living? But who are they to laugh on my dreams. We are all created equal in the eyes of our Holy God. Noone has the right to judge anyone but GOD.

The Rudeness Of Using Language

I feel bad how one of my white canadian co-workers feel about Filipinos when talking in Tagalog infront of other races. About 85% of the employees at work are Filipinos and talking in Filipino most of the time. Making other races feel left out.

I really think it is very rude to speak language or dialect infront of someone who dont understand the language or dialect. I was the only one who came to her and talk. She burst into words abour how rude Filipinos are. And I feel so ashame for my fellow Filipinos for not using the right ethics. Common, it is rude!!

Waitiing For Real Wholesale Inquiries

Another wholesale inquiry for my products few minutes ago. I wonder when will all these inquiries will turn into something to start with. I am happy that my page is effective enough to make someone interested to do business with me. I just hope that one of these days, I will get something more valuable than just inquiring.

I started yahoo ppc campaign and my ads will show up anytime today. I want to compare the traffics from Google Adwords and Yahoo. It's good learn all this things as an online marketer. I dont expect anything big but learning along the way can be good.

My Father Is Leaving

I didn't went to church today. I have a terrible headache and I dont want to go to church sober. I hope God can understand me.

My father will go back to the Philippines on May 24. I feel kinda sad. I dont know when will I see him again after this. I haven't seen my mother for 3 years now. It is so hard to leave far from my parents. I wish I can make them stay here in Canada, but my mother dont like it here. Also, we have a business back home and they can't leave it just like that.

My brother will be here soon too, when they get the approval of their Immigrant Application. My parents will be alone in the Philippines and I am worry thinking about that. This is one of the reasons why I started a business. I am hoping that it will make me quit my job so I can go to the Philippines often to look after my parents. Or perhaps go back to the Philippines for good. I am thinking of putting up a business there while still selling online. But I need some money to do that though. Ahh I hope God will always be there for them

Private Labeling, Dropshipping Inquiries

I am so happy that the PPC campaign is working. I just need a little more work to do to have more exposure. I have one private labeling inquiry from the PPC campaign and one dropshipping inquiry from the manufacturer site that I registered with.

I really need to work on my wholesale pages so wholesale inquiries will have easier access on my wholesale prices. But I have to create new colors for my Ultimate Foundation and Mineral Eyeshadow. Weekend is just too short to do everything. Ahhh I will not stressed myself on this. I might try to finish the wholesale page first and if I have the time to do the new colors for my Mineral Makeup, then I will do it. But to be honest, it's more fun to created colors for my Mineral Makeup.

Wanting To Share and Sell

Too many natural cosmetics and mineral makeup makers but dont have the knowledge in web designing, even just the basic. Or perhaps dont have the patience to learn the basic. I am thinking of creating a website or probably just a page on my webstore where I can sell and share my little knowledge in web designing.

I just need to buy this software and learn how it works a little, for graphic designing for customimized Webstore or website template. But I guess it will take a while before it happen. I have no time for this and so much thing going on my busines. But few thought I want to share today.

Inspired To Work Harder

I am so happy that one dropshipping inquiry I had, is already working on her website to resell my Mineral Makeup products. It makes me feel so inspired to continue working hard for my webstore.

I will be working on new colors for my Ultimate Mineral Foundaation this week and few colors for my Mineral Eyeshadow. I wanted to start dropping some brochures to different beauty salons near my place. But I wanted to have more color choices on my webstore before I do the offline marketing. I need to work on this to make it all happen.

Less Clicks But Specifically For My Products

My Google Adwords Ads are getting numbers of impressions but still no clicks. Impressions mean my ads was displayed from the pages where people type in the keywords that I used for my ads. My Ads was displayed but was not visited. I will observe for a couple of days and see how it goes before I post another ads on Yahoo and MSN.

It's always fun to learn something new. I've been wanting to start learning how this Google Adwords work and I finally started it. I am nervous and excited at the same time. lols..

Instead of using large keywords, I used keywords with less searches. I have about 11 less searches keywords. I am trying to get targetted visitors for my products and not large volume of traffics. The larger the keywords, the more chances of getting clicks but most click can be either just looking or if you are lucky, visitors who will buy. So I'd rather have less traffic but with specific reason of clicking my ad.

Sunday, April 26, 2009

Less Traffic But More Specific

My ads is starting to show and I am glad that my text ad is on the first page for the keywords that I used. There are only few searches for the keywords that I am using but this will give me a very specific traffic. I really believe that it is more important to get specific traffic than having large but not targetted traffic. Beside, having so much traffic can slow down the downloading time of my website which can affect my sales. Also, this is a good start for a begginer in PPC marketing campaign.

Google Adwords PPC Campaign

I finally did my PPC campaign in Google Adwords. It will take about 24 hours to start the ball rolling. I will see how it goes from here. I also would like to try Adcenter but I would like to speak to their customer support for assistance because I dont see where or what to click when I want to stop the campaign.

For the meantime I want to see what will be the impact of Google Adwords on my products. I have been wanting to start this for such a long time. AND I am finally doing it. It's my first to do this and I know I got more things to learn. Crossing my fingers and wish me luck,,,

PPC Campaign Moves

Well I guess I am ready to do the PPC campaign for my products. I just need a little more time to do a good ad on each of the PPC campaign network that I want to try. I want to try doing Google Adwords and see how it goes. Adcenter, Shopzilla and Facebook sounds good because I only have to pay for the clicks on my ads. I might try these four and see how it goes. I need to see how this advertisement will do on my products.

The only problem I have eversince, is the time to focus on making a good ads. And since I have set a lot of things in place with regards to my website and products, I might as well start learning the online marketing. I will be sharing my experience here on this blog.

Happy Response From A Customer

I feel so happy when I receive the email of one dropshipping inquiry for my Mineral Makeup. She ordered some samples few weeks ago. She said she love my product and she is now building her website to resell my product online. It feel so great when somebody appreciate your effort to make a quality product.

I did a lot of changes both on my webstore and the formula of my products. I now feel so confident about the quality of my products particularly my Mineral Makeup. I have so many plans and products to add on my webstore, but my time is very limited. I will wait for the response of Health Canada.

Sunday Bible Message- sand Thomas

John 20:19-31
Jesus and Thomas

But Thomas (who was called the Twin), one of the twelve was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, 'We have seen the Lord' But he said to them, 'Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark of the nails and my hand in his side, I will not believe'.

A week later his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors where shut, Jesus came and stood among them and said, 'Peace be with you'. Then he said to Thomas, 'Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe'. Thomas answered him, 'My Lord and my God!' Jesus said to him, 'Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe'.
The Purpose of This Book

Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. But there are written so that you may come to believe, that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God and that through believing you may have life in his name.

We Are Joining Couple's For Christ.

Me and hubby will join the Couple's for Christ. We have been wanting to join this group but nobody is encouraging us. We dont know where to go and I must admit that we didn't really have the time to find ways or maybe we just didn't try hard enough. But God is so good that he always find ways to help us go to the right path. Finally, somebody is patient enough to spend time bringing us to this group. I am excited to learn more about being with this group of couples joining hand in hand to talk about relationships with God

Life Can Be A Dream

Is it bad to dream? Is it bad to work hard to reach your dreams? Is it bad to hope and pray that someday, all my dreams will come true. I am on my way to make it all happen. But I just need to do few things so evrything will be in place. I am hoping that before the end of this year, everything will be on the place where I always want it to be.

I will submit the papers to Health Canada tomorrow. I am now starting to inquire to different Liability Insurance and hopefully to find one soon. I will be attending some workshop to guide me on my business. I am pretty excited with the first workshop that I will attend to on Saturday. I really hope to learn a lot from this workshop.

Life is hard now, but might be easier for me soon!! I like learning new things even it makes my life a bit harder. But life should be worth living, without taking away God from our heart.

Sunday Bible Message- The Resurrection Of Jesus

John 20:1-18
The Resurrection Of Jesus

Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved and said to them. 'They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him'. Then Peter and other disciple set out and went towards the tomb. The two were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent down to look in and saw the linen wrapping lying there, but he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen wrapping lying there, and the cloth that had been on Jesus head, both lying with the linen wrapping but rolled up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple who reached the tomb first also went in and he saw and believed for as yet did not understand the scripture, that he must rise from the dead. Then the disciples returned to theri homes.

Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene

But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb. As she went, she bent over to look into the tomb and she saw two angels in white sitting where the body of Jesus had benn lying, one at the head and the other at the feet. They said to her, 'Woman, why are you weeping?'. She said to them, 'They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him'. When she had said this, she turned round and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her 'Woman, why are you weeping? For whom you are looking?' Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, 'Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away'. Jesus said to her, 'Mary!' She turned and said to him in 'Hebrew, 'Rebouni' (which means Teacher). Jesus said to her, 'Do not hold on to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and say to them, "I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God"', Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, 'I have seen the Lord'; and she told them that he had said these thing to her.

Business Steps I am In

I am starting to work on the documents I will send to health Canada for my products. I will send some the documents I just finished. Sending this documents doesn't necessarily to get the approval from Health Canada. I am still responsible for the safety of my products. This is just for their records. It is exhausting to do all these documents. I will send all the documents that I can finish this weekend, by Monday.

I will be attending a Small Business workshop on Saturday. It only cost $16.00 and it's all worth for the guidance I will get from them. This is sponsored by Canada Enterpreneurs and I am glad there are programs like this.

I will wait for the response from Health Canada on how they see my products. While waiting for that, I will also be waiting for the ingredients for my Mineral Makeup. I am looking sometime May or June to start the offline marketing of my products. I might publish my products on the newspaper and see how will it go.

Time For Blogging

I will do my blog hopping today since I already shipped the order I received yesterday. I started working on the wholesale page of my webstore by doing it one day at a time. I hope I still have the time and energy to do a little of my wholesale page today, after my short blogwalk.

It's been three months since I published my webstore. I only received orders here and there but nothing really big if you will ask. However. I still haven't done any paid advertsing or PPC campaign as of now. And I was advice the I should do it. This is where I will see where and what o improve, both on my website and my products. But I am not in a hurry. I will do that once I have the chance. Doing the PPC campaign also needs some learning.

Beware of Spam Inquiries

Hubby is done with the wholesale prices of all our products, but I still have to enter all of them manually. I have so many household chores to do and I dont know when can I do it. I continously receive wholesale inquiries. I answer all of them but I only focus on USA, Canada and UK inquries. I hate to say this but, most of the inquiries from other countries is more on spams. So beware of this inquiries. You just have to use your instinct to know who are to beleive. No Money, No Deal. But so far, I have not closed any deal...lols.. But I know one day I will get it soon.

Another Reselling Inquiries

I have another reselling and mineral makeup making inquiries. I am so happy whenever I receive inquiries like this. I just wish that one day, one inquiry will turn into a business deal.

As I am always saying, most of this inquiries and subscriptions are coming from my blogs. Which of my blogs? Those blogs that have relevant contents, related to my products. I am using keywords to get the right traffic or visitors for my products.

I really need to include so many products on my websstore for these inquiries. I need to include larger size for each of my Mineral Makeups particularly the Mineral Foundation for those who are interested to resell my products.

I will also start including some the skin care cosmetic bases for those who are interested to make their own skin care products the easier way. All they have to do is add flavors and scent to make it their own. Ahhh I need time for these.

I hate UPS

I hate UPS!!, Their delivery people are too lazy to find our address to deliver products. I am always having problem whenever I choose UPS to deliver products that I ordered online. As much as I wanted to get their shipping delivery for my products, but then hubby reminded me how awkward they are in finding our place.

That's why I choose Canada Post for my shipping delivery. I thought of looking for other label companies for my products but then UPS said they will re-schedule the delivery tomorrow for the labels.

The company where I order my labels are cheaper and no minimum order. It's good for small business like mine. All I do is print my own label for my products. Very simple label for now. I will change to a better looking label when I start making regular orders for my products.

Busy and Upset

Busy night at work last night as usual. I bought a little Filipino Rice Noodles for few people. There are so many people on our department so I just thought to bring a little for people whom I am always with during break time.

Anyway, I am still upset with someone from the forum that I always got to. I am trying not to be upset so I am going to do a little blog walking to forget about that id**t. ..lols..

It's My Birthday


Happy Birthday to me..lols.. I am getting old but happier. God is so nice to me. I thank God for everything that he has given me. I can not ask for more. I just hope and pray that he will continue pouring me with his love.

John 12: 20-33 Some Greeks Wish to See Jesus

John 12:20-33
Some Greeks Wish to See Jesus

Now among those who went up to worship at the festival were some Greeks. They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and said to him. "Sir we wish to see Jesus". Philip went and told Andrew; then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus. Jesus answered them 'The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Very truly. I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it bears much fruit. Those who love their life lose it and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honour'.

Jesus Speaks about His Death

Now my soul is troubled. And what should I say- "Father, save me from this hour" No, it is for this reason that I have come to this hour. Father, glorify your nam'.Then a voice came from heaven. 'I have glorified it, and I will glorify again.' The crowd standing there heard it and said it was thunder. Others said, 'An angle has spoken to him'. Jesus answered. 'This voice has come for your sake, not mine. Now is the judgement of this world; now the ruler of this world will be driven out. And I, when I am lifted up from the Earth, will draw all people to myself'.

I guess I will relax and sleep for a while and hopely my laziness will be gone. I might add few product and then see if I can create a wholesale page. It's a lot of work again.

Busy On Webstore's Sitemap

I was busy for the past few days fixing the sitemap errors of my webstore on Google. I finally was able to fix the problem and the indexing of my webstore is now going strong. I really hope that this can give my webstore a big credit.

I dont have much wholesale inquiries latel. Well I guess I dont have to worry about it since hubby is not done yet on the wholesale pricing. I hope to finish the product catalog this weekend so I can post it on my webstore for downloading. And also, I can send it to all wholesale inquiries I am receiving and will receive in the future.

Aside from that, I got busy with this new store builder I got from one of my fellow bloggers, Genny. They offer free account for new account holder to try the service and their price is very cheap of 100MB store. So I registered and played around with my account. It is really a cool webstore builder.

I really have a plan to build a second webstore. However, not at this time yet since my first webstore hasn't gone far yet. In fact, there are so much things to do and product to add. As much as I wanted to build my second webstore on Storesonline, but their service is really disappointing. So I am so glad to learn about this new store builder. I would probably focusing on building my second webstore before the end of this year or once my first webstore start getting regular orders.

Sunday Bible Message- John 3:14-21

John 3: 14-21

And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.

Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in ordr that the world might be saved through him. Those who believe in him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgement that the light has come, into the world and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light so that their deeds may not be exposed. But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God.

He will now be in charge of the products while I do the website update and online marketing plus some computer stuffs like labelling. He will be doing the skin care products while I do the Mineral Makeup. And of course, I do all the thinking...lols.

Now I have finished the new labels for my products and did few changes on some of the images of my products. Once hubby is done with all the pricing, I will start doing the product catalog manually.

Products Variations Not Printing

The software on my webstore is not printing the price, weight, scent and flavors variations of all my products on the online catalog. I have been receiving wholesale inquiries and all are asking me for a products catalog. I didn't know that having a product catalog is very important. This might the start of my dreams and I will do my best to do it all.

I will only add those I usually use for my products.

Sunday Bibble Message- Jesus Cleanses the Temple

John 2:13-25
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 pured 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 said, 'This temple has been under construction for forty six years, and you will raise it up in three days?' But he waas 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.

When he was in Jerusalem during the Passover festival, many believed in his name because they saw the signs that he was doing. But Jesus on his part would not entrust himself to them because he knew all people and needed no one to testify about anyone; for he himself knew what was in everyone.

Need To Create Product's Brochure

Well I guess one of the inquiries I received this week is really serious. I got a response form the administrator and they really need to see all my products prices. I am glad that they are really interested on my Skin Care products because I can supply them big orders. The supplier of my skin care products is just about 20 minutes away from my house. I can pick up the ingredients the next day so the processing for orders are easier.

So I will be busy this weekend because I will make the brochure for my skin care products. I will be sending two traders inquiries. I hope to get at least one so I can start the ball rolling on my business. I just need one hit so I can spend the profit on marketing.
