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.

Business Help

What a relieve when hubby help me out on my business. He is now doing the wholesale pricing of my products. 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.

Another International Order

Weee I got another order but this time it's an international order meaning it was from someone outside USA and Canada. I do accept International Orders, however the payment method is different because I am not sure how much will the shipping cost from other countries.

I am so glad that my webstore is now starting to pick up visitors from different part of the world. I am also having a lot of Private Labelling, Wholesale and Reselling inquiries. Ahhhh, Just one wholesale shot and it will be the start.

Never Ending Webstore Update

My One night off from work is over, Now I have to go to bed early because I will be working tonight again. I did a lot of work on my webstore and looks like its going to be a never ending work. I noticed that my webstore is being index for Mineral Makeup or Natural Cosmetic recipes. So I did few downloadable recipes and I will be adding more. I also added few Mineral Makeup Ingredients to be purchased on small orders for those who are interested to make their own Mineral Makeup.

I ahave so much Natural Ingredients to add on my webstore, that are useful for those Natural Cosmetics hobbyist and interested to sell Natural Cosmetics. 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.

Creating Blog's Custom Domain URL to Promote

I purchased a domain name for my new blog for my products. Why do I have to purchased a domain for that blog? Because I want my blog where I will promote my products to dominate the keywords that I am using. Having a free account where I wil promote my products will take time to jump into a good index position on the SERP. I've seen a tremendous difference when promoting products on blog with its own domain URL.

Most of the traffic of my webstore are coming from my >Embracing Health For Life blog with it's own custom domain URL. Now I know why I usually receive offers from advertiser on this blog. I created a blog for my products to create a community for my future customers. Here they will be able to read articles about my products. But creating a blog with custom domain URL will not only create easy community for my products but also to dominate the keywords for my products on the search engine.

Skeptical On One Wholesale Inquiry

I received another wholesale inquiry from one of the largest supplier's directories worldwide. I am a little skeptic about the inquiry since their trading company is located on China. Although most of their customers are from USA, Europe and Canada, why the heck they will get products from someone from Canada where costs and currency exchange are much higher. There are so many products made from China that are being exported from different parts of the world. I also visited their website and most of their supplies are made from China. Hmmmm,...

They are asking me for a brochure of my products and the lowest wholesale price that I can give them. I actually bought a pack of brochure papers since last month because, I was planning to make a brochure for my products to enclose on every orders. But I just didn't have the time. Updating and fixing minor errors on my webstore is taking so much of my time. But since, this can be an opportunity for my products, I will try my best to make a brochure this weekend. I am a little skeptic but there is no harm in trying...... the smart way... lols..

Orders and Wholesale Inquiries

Yepeyyyy I got new orders again and wholesale inquiry. It seems that the inquirer wants to sell my products so she ordered many free samples. But I can only send a maximum of 3 free samples. I have some issue on my shipping software. The customer wasn't charge for the amount that she was supposed to be charged.

My webstore is now being shown on the Search Engines. The referer site was Google Search Engine and I am so happy. My hard work and dedicaton is starting to pay off. I hope I will get more soon..

New Line of Natural Cosmetics Soon

Yay I am to lazy to create a new formula for Mineral Foundation for Fine Lines and Wrinkles. I have created the description on my webstore but have not published it because I need to have the color images. I wonder what will keep me motivated to do this. lols... I am actually more motivated to do new Bubble so I can use it later on. I was thinking of making cucumber with licorice extract Bubble bath. I find it very smooth on my skin when I added it on my Shower Gel. Now I wanted to put these extract on my Bubble Bath and see how smooth my skin will be. ahhhhh, whatever!!

Busy Weekend Ahead

It's the weekend once again. Since the ingredients that I have been waiting for are already here, I will try my best to finish my Mineral Makeup product category so I can start the PPC campaign. I am a little nervous on what will be outcome. I just want to get the first 100 visitors and see what are the changes that I need to do for my website.

I also want to add few products on my Body Bath and Facial Care Category. I just love the Cucumber with Licorice Cleansing Cream that I made. I use this together with my Cucumber Witch Hazel Astringent and Papaya with Licorice Body Wash. My kids love the body wash too. I might be making a cucumber with licorice botanical extract Bubble Bath. We all know how beneficial these botanical ingredients when added to skin care products. I wish I have ample time to do all of these.

Once I am done with all these personal favorite products, I will start completing the Natural Cosmetic Ingredients like the Essential Oil, Floral Waters etc.. Then I will add all the Cosmetic Bases for people who want to make their own lotions and other skin care cosmetics.

The last project that I want for this very first webstore, which will probably happen when I start receiving inquiries and request, is to sell Mineral Makeup Ingredients. Since these ingredients are imported from USA, I need to invest money so I can sell them in a very competitive price within Canada. My thoughts are big on this business

Confrontation That Will Open Her Eyes

Well at least I have confronted her. I will take her word that she never heard anything from somebody. I maybe right or I maybe wrong. As long as I dont have any proof that someone was trying to stub me on my back, I cannot say anything against somebody. It was only the strong feeling I had inside me, that someone was trying to stub me on my back. You may say or you can act to convey that I am just being Paranoid, but one thing I know for sure... I AM NOT STUPID! and God is my only witness.

At least now you know who are you are dealing with. I never trust anyone who dont see anything but imperfections of everyone. These kind of people are full of bitterness in their heart. These people can not accept the fact that someone can be better than them. These kind of people always try to find something to others to prove themselves that they are not alone with the imperfections that they have within themselves. Or perhaps, you can suffer to your guilt that you yourself somehow stub me on my back as well. Without a word from you, You are already forgiven!!!

Dreams To Reach

I just send two orders today and I am so happy. Receiving orders is such a joy especially for a 2 months old webstore. When somebody ask me how my business is doing, I just say "SO, SO"... My webstore is only 2 months old and it is barely seen by the Search Engines. For those who dont know how this internet business go, it really takes time before you can get real time orders, unless you pay for internet marketing like Google Adsense. Google Adsense can be costly but your website will be place to search pages where people can easily see you website.

I already created a Google Adsense TEXT AD but I am still waiting for some more ingrediends (color pigment) for my mineral makeup category products. I will spend money for Google Adsense marketing basically to get more than 100 visitors a day. This is the best and fastest way to get as many traffic as I can, so I can determine what changes I need for my website and how will I improve my products.

I know some envious people from my real world are reading my blogs. Well, sorry but this is how and where I blog my thoughts. My thoughts are focus on worthy things to improve my daily living. I love my products, I love learning things on how to make money on the internet. I love the challenge I am in right now. I want to see my webstore fly on the internet with flying colors. I am dreaming of getting many visitors and orders before the end of this year. And perhaps create a new webstore and start doing this challenge all over again. Maybe on my third webstore, I can quit my job.

How will I do this? Simply use my brain and time for worthy things. There are techniques on how to have a successful webstore. It may not happen in one day or two but through hard work and perseverance, everything is possible. I am expecting to get many visitors and inquiries this summer. And early next year, I want to see customers coming back and more unique visitors, ordering on my website.

There are no suppliers of Mineral Makeup Ingredients here in Canada, so I want to invest money to import large orders of Mineral Makeup Ingredients so I can sell in a competetive price within Canada.

Are you raising your eyebrows? My friends, there is nothing wrong with what I am doing. This is my journey, so dont judge me with the things that I want to achieve; things that are making me happy; things that I love to do. If you dont want to support me, at least dont put me down.

Love The Business You Are In

For those who are visiting my blogs to see whats on my thoughts right now? Well I have a very eager customer who wants to order my mineral makeup. She filled up the contact form but the email address that she entered is invalid or probably she entered the wrong email add. So my email in response to her inquiry keeps on coming back to me as a "MAILER-DAEMON". Yay!!! I got this customer inquiry from one of my blogs where I always blog about my products. It surely work to promote products on blogs.

I am also very happy that one of my customers contacted me to request for a pure SheAloe Butter custom made. So I am waiting for her to drop her money today so I can order the ingredients and hopefully pick it up tomorrow. She said I should sell this product because it's what people have been looking for. So I will post this on my website soon.

I love webdesigning and now hooked on Natural Cosmetics. As I have been always saying, "Find something that you love doing and make a business out of it".... So if you love cleaning houses, well good for you. Now you found something that you love doing. Focus your mind on how to make it big, instead of talking and finding something bad to talk about people you are pretending to be a friend, BEHIND THEIR BACK.

Sunday Bible Message- The Temptation of Jesus

Mark 1:12-15
The Temptation on Jesus

And the Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness for forty days, tempted by Sata; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angles waited on him
The Beginning of The Galilean Ministry

Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the good news of God and saying, 'The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news'.
