Starting a business all on your own from home can be a big learning curve where you are in unfamiliar territory.  It can be easy to spend huge amounts on a startup.  People who are prepared to risk their savings on expensive dreams are becoming rarer. However people still take their retirement payout and “invest” in a startup business.

Yes it can work for you but the present day statistics point to pause for thought before jumpino-sellingng into a traditional bricks and mortar business. The finance decisions are yours totally until you need to involve banks etc then it becomes an accountable burden,  so its worth being critical and careful.

The baby boomer generation is turning 60,  and the prospect of retirement is looking more frightening than ever before.

House prices are dropping, retirement plans dwindling, interest rates not paying enough on savings.  So retirees are now facing challenges they had never anticipated. Those challenges aside, retirement packs its own host of roadblocks for those who want to leave the workforce.

The cost of living is often more than most people assume, and few workers are able to retire with as much savings as they need in order to live comfortably.

“Everybody thinks your expenses go down when you retire,” says experienced home business owner Rita Canney. She says  “My expenses stayed pretty much the same!”

For the solution to those problems, many retirees, Rita included, are looking to the same source of residual income that Elizabeth Lindberg discovered nearly 25 years ago.

At the time a retired  66-year-old nurse  she’s now earned over  $1 million to date from her Melaleuca business. Elizabeth enrolled with Melaleuca in December 1985,  just a couple of months after the company opened its doors, a year after most people retire.

The company had only eight products, all based on Melaleuca oil. “The first appeal was the safety of the products,” says Elizabeth. “I was a nurse in a hospital and I saw so many children come in because of unsafe products. I had to let everyone know, especially parents with children, that they needed safe products in their homes.”

Over the years, she built her business to a high management level. “I know I couldn’t survive solely on my Social Security; so my Melaleuca check gives me a secure retirement,” she says. “I lived during the Great Depression, so I know about financial hardship. If people want financial security, Melaleuca, I truly believe, is one of the best sources.”

Elizabeth had her 94th birthday recently and now lives in a retirement home but is still being paid every month on efforts from years ago. I emailed her a birthday congratulations and she responded almost immediately. ” Thank you Colin for your kind words.Best wishes for success and isn’t it fun helping to clean up the world? Elizabeth






As its National Lupus Awareness month I remembered I had recently listened to a call about this illness and decided to share and post part of the call as a point of reference for folks in my group so they can hopefully help others with this valuable information.

For more information on any of the products discussed feel free to contact us.


I agree about the energy levels. I’m a homeschooling mom of 4 with lupus. Exhausted is my first, middle, and last name! After taking the supplements  pack for about one month, I was able to notice a HUGE difference in my energy levels, my nail growth, and my hair. They most important to me was the energy level though. I’m thankful of these products and that this company makes such a great product!

After a year of bizarre symptoms and unbearable pain, I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus and its companion, Fibromyalgia. The medical answer was to take a powerful anti-malarial drug that has side effects that are accumulative and irreversible, (i.e.)pigment deposits on the retina that would cause eventual blindness, chronic diarrhea (embarrassing and uncomfortable) causing a depletion of potassium and other trace mineral.

None too sure that the cure wasn’t worse than the disease I began to try to find an alternative treatment. It took six years before someone introduced me to this range. After only two months following the regimen recommended by Dr. Ramero, the joint pain has subsided, my energy level is unbelievable and my blood pressure no longer requires prescription medication, and I am taking only half my dose of Plaquenil. It is my sincere belief that anyone with Lupus would benefit from these products.



I battle with a slide to the left in my golfswing.  There I have said it!!

I blame this recurring flaw / movement on playing a lifetime of golf at a windy Scottish links course and  trying to keep the ball down. Incidentally, I moved to an inland course for a few years and was amazed how high these inland players hit the ball! Anyhow this slide makes me push or slice the ball which knocks yards off drives into a wind which  means a much longer second shot to long par 4s. Also means a lot of scrambling with chipping and putting having to be relied on to get a score. So I finally decided to do something about it by looking carefully at my swing.

I downloaded an app for my Iphone called V1 Golf which allowed slow motion recording of my swing and a enabled a closer look at this fault.

First thing I noticed was where I was at impact.01886cf5f6aa20c9243ad482c5eeed81a796c17caa

I slid through with upper body over my left foot during transition from top of the backswing to impact mid downswing. This meant being forward through the ball. Clubhead behind my hands with obvious opening clubface caused by this move.

Look at the picture on the right of a young Rory Mcilroy or VJ Sing for comparison.

As I am getting older and am shortening my swing slightly as well to allow for reduced flexibility but extending through the ball while keeping weight on left side with a tilt to right is my swing thought.

Post in comment below your thoughts and pictures of your swing .
