New Interesting Job Opportunity!

This is a New & Interesting Job Opportunity for anyone who is looking to earn between $400.00 – $5000.00 + each month from home!

We are NOT an MLM, or a Home-Party company, or a company where you have to buy huge amounts of inventory, a Get-Rich-Quick scheme/scam (if that’s what you’re looking for, we’re probably not the right company for you – there I said it)…

Now that I told you what we are NOT – I’d like to tell you a little bit about what we are!

We are a 25-year-old, debt-free, health & wellness company providing more than 350 products in health & wellness that people use literally every day of the year. We were green 25 years ago when “green” was just a color!  If you know 10 people who clean their homes/apartments, take showers, wash their clothes, take vitamins/supplements, use some kind of skin care system, buys over-the-counter medicines – we are FOR you!

We love & value our customers, who 95% of the time, month after month, purchase our products online or by phone! We do this because it really is about helping the little-guy (95% retention rate)…& the money earned from those monthly sales goes back in to the local economy through the incredible residual income that is secured for anyone wanting a 2nd or extra stream of income.

Today’s baby-boomers can not afford to retire now, and 1 out of 4 says they’ll never be able to afford to retire.  That’s crazy – It’s insane that working 20-30-40 years for the same company – or a myriad of jobs does not give us a secure financial future. When I was released from my job of 23 years, 6 weeks ago, I knew I had to get down to the brass tacks and take the company that I had played with for almost 15 months, earning a few $100 a month, was the future I saw for myself and that I needed to review what I had done in the past and that by being consistent & persistent, I too could have the life I wanted without being chained to a desk in a company that did not care about me!

In a Time Magazine article in an acknowledgement of reality, 40 percent said they plan to work “until I drop.” & there is another poll that indicates that

44% of Americans born between 1946 and 1965 are not confident that they’ll have enough money to live comfortably in retirement, according to a new Associated Press-LifeGoesStrong.com poll. More than half (57%) say they lost money during the recent economic downturn and many who were affected (42%) say that’s why they’re delaying their retirement.

Economic anxiety has certainly taken its toll on us. Pensions, social security, and individual savings plans like 401k accounts aren’t secure enough to float the average midlifer’s retirement boat. The recession and its aftermath have not only tarnished our anticipation of the Golden Years but in many cases eliminated the option.

There is an answer and it’s not a “get-rich-quick” scheme – In fact Dave Ramsey, the financial guru, has called our company the Get-Out-Of-Debt company with real-time solutions – That’s what I call an impressive reference!

Poison Control Centers Lose 25% of Its Funding!

American Association of Poison Control Centers: Poison Centers Federal Appropriations Cut by Nearly 25 percent in Proposed FY 2011 Continuing Resolution;  Damaging Impact to States’ Ability to Help Citizens!

Alexandria, Va. –{U.S. poison centers suffered a nearly 25 percent cut in federal dollars in the proposed 2011 fiscal year continuing resolution agreed upon by House and Senate negotiators and released publicly on Tuesday – a damaging cut, but one far less brutal than originally proposed by the House of Representatives in H.R. 1.
The House of Representatives, in H.R. 1, had originally called for a 93 percent reduction in federal funding for America’s poison control system, a move that would have produced disastrous effects on public health. “We’re grateful that Congress has recommended that a majority of our 2011 federal dollars be restored in the final compromise,” said Richard Dart, M.D., Ph.D., president of the American Association of Poison Control Centers. “But we must be clear: These cuts are still extremely harmful for poison centers. The cuts come on top of budget cuts at the state level. Many centers are experiencing total cuts from all sources of 40 percent or more. It’s short-sighted to believe that centers can sustain these cuts and continue to provide the same level of service that they did before.”
Federal dollars account for roughly 20 percent of total funding for poison centers, with states and other non-federal sources funding most of the balance. Poison centers provide free and confidential medical advice 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and have been cited as a model for cost-effective health care delivery. “These cuts come during a time when poison centers are already facing enormous financial strain,” Dart said. “It’s too soon to know what these cuts mean. At best, callers to poison centers may have to wait
longer before talking to a medical expert. At worst, we may see more of our poison centers close.}

I went in to this website to verify facts I was reading about the sheer # of people who called in to the Poison Control Centers here in the U.S. for help because a child had accidentally ingested a potentially life-threatening toxic cleaning product.  It states that 92% of all poison exposures happen in the home.  And the truth is, it isn’t just ingestion that creates a poisoning effect.  It can be from breathing toxic fumes and by coming in to contact with toxic substances through the skin & eyes.

We bring products in to our homes every day that we assume are “safe” for us & our families because they’re available for purchase countrywide on the store shelves…But, nothing is further from the truth.  We, as consumers, need to make better choices in what we use in our homes!  Even the lotions, creams, soaps, shampoos, conditioners & deodorants contain toxic substances that can over time break down the immune systems and in combination with our toxic products under the bathroom & kitchen sinks create a home where the level of pollution is greater than the air we breathe outside the home.

There are solutions that do NOT have to break the family budget and that is a message we need to get out to the people.  I shout it out loud – I whisper it in the halls – but whatever I do, I want people to know it is because I care for them, their children, their grandchildren and this planet!

Call Me! – Email Me! – Let me show you how to live a richer and fuller life with better and safer products!

Green, Greener, Toxins, Carcinogens – And this means WHAT?

Well, what it means is that all of those things we’ve been taught are “good” for us – is bunk!  We’re poisoning our bodies, our planet, and our families with the lies that the major manufacturers and advertisers have told us for decades.  Soap Operas were called that because advertisers had to wrap something around their advertisements – Some of the young people who read this will go “Yea, right!”…

Left side Jar: Tide 2X, Right side Jar: Melapower 6X

It’s true and those of my generation who are suffering the effects of these toxins we’ve brought in to our homes will attest that what I’m saying is true!

I found this funny in my quick research.

Tide doesn’t have any real difference from the others other than fragrance. All laundry detergents are mostly water, with surfactants (which basically lower surface tension on clothes to allow molecules to release), usually some enzymes which are targeted at specific common “dirty” material, and sometimes fabric softener.

For exact ingredients go to “Tide Laundry Detergent MSDS” . All products on the market are required to publish Material Data Safety Sheets.

& surfactants in detergents help remove organic compounds from a substance by making them dissolve more readily in the water.ter in which the substance is washed. (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/surfactants)

Surfactants are largely made from the waste bi-products of the petroleum industry. Some time ago, scientists managed to combine propylene and benzene, producing sulphuric acid and then neutralise it by adding sodium hydroxide. The result was a product rather like natural soap and suddenly marketers were able to develop a new commercial must-have consumer line of detergents.

I actually found a blog posting that has great information about the levels of cancer-causing agents and hormone changing chemicals that are in our every  day products. http://www.pollutionissues.co.uk/additives-soaps-surfactants.html – The author ends with a Call To Action – We must start now to break the cycle we have been trained to believe was the only way to go.

This isn’t a joke and honestly there is nothing funny about it – although I truly wish there was!  Then writing this would be easy not having to search out the truth among all the ads, blogs, and websites that constantly send you back to the pollution/cancer-causing manufacturers. It’s amazing and sad…

Greenwashing!

The Earth flag is not an official flag, since ...

Image via Wikipedia

In an article in the AZGreen Magazine entitled “Is Greenwashing Wearing You Out?” the very title alone is exhausting.  They state that manufacturers every where have jumped on the “green” band wagon.  All I can say to that is “Boy Howdy”…every where you look it’s green this and oh this is green and oh my – did you notice that this manufacturer is now making laundry soap that is green?

I’m sorry, but they’ve had generations of time to get it right and yet over and over again they want to fool & deceive the buying public.  Biodegradable and consumable and a myriad of other tags go on bottles and sale ads and still they continue to produce products that are filled with formaldehyde, ammonia, bleach, phosphates; and the list of chemical compounds could go on ad nauseum!  And that is what it should do to you – It should make you physically ill to THINK of what has been done with our homes, health, family – All in the name of the almighty $.

They continue to take your weekly budget and increase the cost of items while downgrading the amount of product you actually get – if it isn’t more water and other chemicals added to your cleansers & household items, they make the bottles smaller and smaller.  Always giving you less and less.

In a time when every penny matters to every family budget – it only makes sense to seek out alternatives that “make sense” and make “cents”.  Our family $’s must stretch farther and provide better value – When people say that we must make a “Call-To-Action” – I am doing just that!  I’m making a Call-To-Action.

At Distinct Inspirations we are able to provide families with a way to not only save money on the items they use every month, but we also are able to help keep the family budget in tact by providing a way to eliminate impulse buying.  It’s a new way to shop that’s been around for 25 years – yes we’ve been “green” for 25 years! – So, let me show you with a webcast how you can protect your family budget, as well as provide an extra stream of income for your family!

I’m POSITIVE it will be perfect for someone you & those around you that you know & love!

Re-Purposing of Old Items

I am amazed every time I see the incredible ingenuity used by every day folk in taking things we would normally trash, adding to the miles of trash in the garbage heaps and finding brand new uses for them.

In the Real Simple article on 50 All-Time Uses of Old Things, they have the neatest tips – from using old picture frames with a piece of colored paper as a vanity tray to using old ketchup bottles to pour out perfect portions of pancake batter. Who would have thought of that? But…someone did and the neatest thing is – they didn’t keep it to themselves, but instead, chose to share it with us.

What good does it do to have wonderfully creative ideas if we never share them with each other? I loved my mom and still think about her several times a day even though she is gone from me; but she was a busy working mom who many times worked two jobs to keep food on the table and bills paid. Because of that, many times her approach to things at home was that she could do something faster herself then to take the time to teach me “how to do something”.  And as a working mom myself, I understand that train of thought.

But today, as we turn another corner in our lives, it is more important than ever to share with each other! To teach each other! To care what another person is doing! & to show them (us/me) a better way of handling the resources we have been given on this planet.  We have limited sources of energy, space, land, water and with the number of us living longer and richer lives, we must be caretakers of not only our own lives, but also those around us – young & old.  We are critical of so many things in the world, and yet, we are all here together.  Why not learn from each other? Teach each other?

How about this tip – use Lifesaver candies as birthday cake & cupcake candle holders? – Isn’t that the neatest idea? And very sweet too! (pun intended)  Or, one that we use in our home, use empty facial tissue boxes to hold the plastic bags we get from the supermarket when we forget our “green alternative” reusable bags.

The ideas go on and on and some are so simple you think, “Oh my gosh, why didn’t I think of that”? – well that is why we have each other and why magazines like Real Simple are published – to give us the “Ah-Ha” moments we all love and get such a kick out of.

If, when you read the Real Simple article, 50 All-Time Uses of Old Things, you have other ideas, PLEASE share them with us – we would love to pass them on to our readers…

The Killer Is Hiding In Your Laundry Room…

Is it a mass murderer with a knife?  A crazed person from your neighborhood store with a gun?  A maniac with a chemical poison to throw in your face?

What if I told you it is all 3 and you paid him to be there?  What do you think?  Impossible, you say?

We have demanded that the big chemical companies come up with better, harsher, more chemical-laden products to work faster, and more efficiently and always for less money…that last part “less money” is what gets you every time.  You can go to any dollar store in the USA and find products on the shelves that promise to do the same thing as their higher-priced counterparts in the supermarkets; and dollar for dollar – they probably do.

But, what you’re bringing in to your home, whether it’s from the $1.00 store or from the supermarket, or even from the “healthy” stores are the poisons and the carcinogens and the knife, the gun, the chemical poison and yes, you are the one paying for the murderer to hide right in your own laundry room.

We as consumers are not as educated as we should be.  We want the better, bigger,  more powerful and what we end up bringing in to our homes around our children, pets and yes, ultimately the environment is the very poison that will destroy our health, our homes, our lives and our planet if we don’t make a change.  We can’t continue to demand that companies make more and more toxic products for cleaning and laundry and pest controls – all to make us more “productive”.  We can NOT continue to be that ignorant.
