This is a great read.... It is much more then just about money...
Give Me Money! (unabridged) Audio CD Review
By Made for Success
Some of you might know that I have been under the weather and I have been catching up on reading. All is well. So I will be doing some book reviews, and different reviews on products, with recipes. Try to get some more videos out as well.
Okay, about the book. I read this book and feel the need to write a review on it. I think the title kind of says it all what most people want, but for you sceptics it has some really valuable personal and business information. More then just about getting money,or a get rich quick scam, but it is mostly about personal growth. I personally think the title doesn't do it just, because it is so much more than about money.
I am a business owner and practice the Law of Attraction philosophy. I wanted to find something for my local Mastermind group that would inspire, give them valuable information, and teach them techniques on how to get ahead in a down economy either with their business and/or their personal lives. Well, this Audio Book did it. This audio is marketed towards CEO's, but you don't have to be a business owner, or a CEO of a big corporation to need this information.
This is a Audio book so if you are like me and don't have time to read I recommend this book. It is a must have! I did my reviews on Amazon as well. It includes 9 famous speakers/authors. So, it is really 9 books in one. We worth every penny. I listened to it twice and have a note book of notes.
I have to agree with what the description says in this Audio program. “In order to reach your moneymaking goals and get all the satisfaction you deserve, you've got to start with the proper mind-set. Once you have your attitude in place, the numbers associated with wealth become academic. This concept is the core wisdom of the nine choice speakers and authors in this special program. Each expert has devoted time and attention to the topic of wealth generation and will offer various perspectives with step-by-step instructions on how to be rich. So if you want the answer to the question ''How can I become a millionaire?'' invest in this audio guide and get started on your wealth-building program today.”
Just loved lisening to Jack Canfield, T Harv Eker, Loral Langemeier, Coach Carl Logrecco, and many more on this Audio book. They all were great speekers. I will recommend this to all that want great business advice, great financial advice, and to all my Mastermind and Law of Attraction friends, it is worth every penny. I have a notebook of notes. I think besides every business CEO or Manager reading it. It should be even the ordinary regular people such as a house wife, should read it. It is for everyone that wants to make something out of their life should get this audio book.
Add comments to what you think.
Here is the link to the audio book below. As I said it is well worth it!
For Fathers day:

Month 1 -
To the Formula to Being Younger
I said that I would post my results and any information in regards to my earlier blog on with the formula "Do You Want to Feel and Look Younger" is doing to my skin and if I am feeling younger.
I am not noticing much energy change but my skin is flawless. I have had some skin issues have almost disappeared. I have added one thing in addition to the posted formula. I am now using vitamin E oil on my face and skin issue areas every night, especially around my eyes. Which I had fine lines starting and have been using very expensive creams to get rid of but am finding I might not need them. I have been taking faithfully the new vitamin formula that are listed in the "Do You Want to Feel and Look Younger" blog. I have seen that I do not need as much face creams. I have even less lines around my eyes and my skin is looking flawless. Any puffiness, dark spots, and even fine lines are diminishing. Therefore, I am noticing just in a little over four weeks results. I think by me eating healthy, getting exercise regularly, and now adding these extra vitamins I am looking younger in just a month. My hair and nails look healthier too. I haven’t noticed much on memory yet. We are hoping.
Why Vitamin E? Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and prevent cellular damage from occurring. Vitamin E is one of the most powerful antioxidants, but your body cannot produce it, which means you have to make sure you're getting enough of this valuable nutrient in your diet and on your skin.
I found it somewhat funny to put Pharmaceutical Grade of Vitamin E on my skin because it is just salad dressing to me. It is made up oils such as sunflower oil, corn oil, and olive oil, maybe a few more oils but these are what comes to mind. In addition, to putting this on my face everynight, I eat things that are high in Vitamin E as well, such as avocado, which is good for your skin on the outside. too. Just mash it and use it as a mask on your skin. However,I rather eat it and use the oil on my skin. Other high vitamin E foods are almonds,hazelnuts, peanuts, sweet potatoes, mango, apples, asparagus, turnips, spinach,and tomatoes. Wow! I found out that this Vitamin has many benefits. Look below
Thekey to getting enough vitamin E on your face and eating a balanced diet that includes a mixture of fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Check out the blog link with the formula to healthier skin and feeling younger. Blog Link
I love your feedback - Please let me know if this is working for you

Ladies Are You Are Seeking the following:
Here is a formula to being younger
I have been doing some serious research on how I can come up with a youthful formula that is affordable for everyone. I truly believe besides buying a great beauty cream (keeping moisturized which is a big key), buying just a multi vitamin, and besides using produce on your face (such as avocado, fresh cucumbers) to help with aging skin process that you need to start from the inside. Plus, I want something more than just a younger looking face. I want to look and feel younger, have better memory and I want my mind to be more alert too.
My main goal is to find supplements that are not sold by another MLM Company! I want to do it myself and buy it at a regular store, but cheaper,and help others do it as well. So that is why I am writing this blog.
I know I can make any formula myself if they can do it, then so can I. I can buy the ingredients, but the main thing is not only the cost, but also feeling healthy, but I want seeing the results on my face and mind. Yes, I want the best of both worlds. Just go back 15 years is all. For a fraction of the price that you would pay companies like Juvenon (Dr. Ames, who founded Juvenon even told people they could buy this cheaper at Wal-Mart) or maybe other companies beside Wal-Mart you might find these productsat a Online drug stores such as VitaCost.com even cheaper. I am not saying anything bad about Juvenon their product is good and has good reviews, but I need to be able to afford it and I know other women need this as well. I also look at shopping at large warehouse clubs, like Costco and Sam's Club.
I have been try these products for about two months and I will continue to try it, and post my results. I am all about eating healthy and that shows already on my skin and my over all heath and body. In addition, I use Jafra skin care products, which I find, are one of the best skin for the money. Yeah, a nice plug for Jafra. No, I do not sell it, but I do recommend it. I also, love going through places like Sephora when they have big sales on skin care products, or even going to the local CVS and buying regular products with coupons is my all time favorite or even Amazon.
Now that I am getting older, I need even more brainpower, so I am going to try to see if supplements will help. I figure it can't hurt. I will be using supplements that will not break the bank with purchasing a miracle pill or product from some MLM that cost me $1000 a year when I can take maybe 3 to 4 pills or less (because some of these I can find combined in your Multi Vitamin that I am already taking), this might cost cost me addtionally $300 a year and look and feel 15 years younger. If I was to go through a MLM it would cost me about $3,000 a year in addtion to want I am already doing.
I am already doing anti aging with food being on a Mediterranean Alkaline diet for over 16 year, which as kept me cancer free for that long. I believe, and many of my Dr believes when your Ph levels are balanced you are not as likely to have disease, and I believe that this diet has kept my cancer away. This diet has not only has helped me, but has helped several of my customers fight off cancer. I will post more about this diet later.
In addition, to my diet, I meditating regularly, and exercise regularly. Very important taking care of yourself and getting enough sleep is a must. Therefore, I will be adding this formula in my blog to my life now and will keep you posted on what's happening. I do not think you will see much improvement on the outside because my skin looks good already with my diet and skincare products that I use (Jafra and putting natural produce on my face). I do have some fine lines around my eyes that I will be watching. What do you expect for being in your fourties. I have skin problems in some area's that should clear up too and already have improved. I do not need much more skincare, but this is preventive care mainly. In addition, to the skincare I need the brainpower more.
Are You Are Seeking:
Here is My Formula:
A list of what you need to buy separately or combined
If you need any of those things listed then you might want to try this formula with a good multi vitamin:
I like taking probiatics occasionally too (to keep promoting healthy bacteria/microorganisms) Which help digestion andurinary problems. Yogurt have this in it naturally.
Okay, I am not guaranteeing this works. This is just what I have found from my research. So, if you would like to try it with me. Please answer my blog…
Written by: Chef Linda Galyean
Please post your comments...
Is it working for you ????
I ask that you please do not post anything from a MLM company. I am not promoting selling of any MLM products. Just want to put addtional information out there to help people find affordable options. If you post I will delete your comments and account.
I do not have anything agains MLM companies. I use Isagenix and have used other MLM products. I think they are wonderful products, but have found that I can't (many of my friends can't) afford them. They will say that you only pay a couple dollars a day, but I can get it down to pennies a day.

What do you think of the NuVal Score system?
I don't know if any of you are aware of what you will be seeing in our grocery stores soon. It is called The NuVal™ Nutritional Scoring System, which helps you quickly and easily compare the nutritional value of the food you buy.
The system scores the overall nutritional value of food on a scale of 1 to 100. The higher the NuVal™ Score, the higher the nutrition.Grocery stores will be posting this information soon.
What they are saying about the NuVal System:
The science behind it.
The NuVal™ System was developed by a team of nutrition andmedical experts from leading health organizations and universities.Using a patent-pending algorithm, the system considers more than 30 of the following nutrients found in food and beverages then summarizes their nutritional quality in a single number:· Carbohydrates· Protein · Fat· Fiber· Vitamins· Minerals. The Score considers how these nutrients influence health outcomes and relate to USDA and Institute of Medicine dietary guidelines.
How the NuVal™ System benefits you.
The NuVal™ Nutritional Scoring System helps you make informed decisions about food quickly, easily and with confidence - right inthe supermarket aisle. Why the NuVal™ System is so important.
The NuVal™ System considers more than 30 different nutrients,nutrition factors, and their impact on health outcomes to give youa fair account of a food's true nutritional value.
The NuVal™ System puts better nutritionright at your fingertips.
In addition to the overall nutritional score, you'll also find other vital attributes right on the NuVal™ shelf tag, including:· Gluten-free· Good source of fiber· Low saturated fat· 100 calories or less· Low sodium· Good source of vitamins Want To Learn More About NuVal™?

My brain just does not work anymore….
I had a client inspire me to write this blog. She sent me and email stating she went to email me three times and got side tracked. It seems I do this all the time lately and I am hearing the same from more women in my circle. I ask myself is it the added stress we put ourselves under every day? Is it more stress these days because of the economy? Yeah, right let's blame the economy. I am so sick of hearing that! Is it our environment? Is it the foods we eat and the microwaves we use eating our brain cells? Alternatively, is it the cellular waves in the air interfering with our brains? On the other hand, is it just we are getting old and our brain is not producing as it was.
I am not the only one trying to figure out how to get smarter or at least keep what little smarts you have. I have given up on us getting smarter. I am looking for ways to boost our brainpower and let me tell you it is big business. In addition to ever-popular alertness boosters like coffee and Red Bull, pills like Focus Factor and Brain Advantage are hot items, with customers shelling out $70 per month or more to stay on top of their mental games. Ginkgo biloba, an herbal supplement billed as a memory enhancer, generates nearly $1 billion in annual sales in the U.S. alone. Some folks go even further: as the prestigious journal Nature recently reported, 20 percent of scientists responding to a survey admitted to taking so-called cognition-enhancing drugs like the stimulants Ritalin (to aid focus) and Provigil (to stay alert without caffeine’s jitteriness), without apology. “It is my duty to use my resources to the greatest benefit of humanity,” said one respondent. One-third said they’d even feel pressure to give their own children these drugs if other kids in their circles were also using them. No, I will not resort to doing that to my children or even myself.
There is no way I am ready to pump myself with drugs in order to remember something more quickly, I did want to regain control of my mind, and, if I could,head off cognitive decline. The main question I ask now is could improving my diet help? I began scouring the science to find out. I also wondered whether the American diet I’ve been spoon-fed (and am currently spoon-feeding my children) was to blame for my mental malaise. I wanted to figure out whether a smart menu at each stage of life could fend off dullness and make me—and my family—sharper.
I am still researching and testing these diets, but here is what I found.DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid, a long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid in the omega-3family that’s found in fish and their roe (particularly fattier types like salmon and sardines) is the magic nutrient du jour. I have seen literally hundreds of studies investigating its power to prevent cardiovascular disease.Now the focus has turned to the brain: dozens of studies report that mother animals deprived of DHA have offspring with memory, sensory and visual problems, and that supple menting them with DHA improves their performance on learning, memory, and problem-solving tasks. This makes intuitive sense: DHA forms the back bone of much of the brain cells’ membranes.
So, I found that test have been done when the mother eats omega-3 foods, the baby is in the womb and after birth, could have the same positive effect on human infants. Researchers collected umbilical cord blood from 109 newborns. They analyzed the DHA concentration in their cord blood (a good measure of how much DHA the mother consumed during her last few months of pregnancy), and then tested how well the infants performed on tests throughout their first year. They found that at 6 months and 11 months, infants whose cord blood had the highest concentrations of DHA performed better on a number of different tests—such as recognizing faces—than those with lower levels. “The mother’s intake during the third trimester, when the brain’s neurons and synapses are developing at a veryrapid rate, is most important. When we focused on that period, we found the most evidence of beneficial effects,” researchers say. I say "Wow, that is huge to any of my clients that are soon to be mommy's". I will pass this info on to everyone I know, just another good reason to write this blog.
So what does that tell me? Yes, we are what we eat, and we need to really analyze what we are feeding our children even before they are born and even the first stages of life. So, I want to get this information out there to my readers and let you know it is not too late. Try these few changes to your diet and let me know the out come.
Here is a list that I found on Eating Well’s website
Smart food for every age...
Are you getting enough of the right nutrients to support healthy cognitive function and improve memory? EatingWell’s quick guide to food solutions willshow you how.
1) Go fish.
Women who eat fatty fish,such as salmon, during their third trimester of pregnancy have babies who tendto perform better on cognitive tasks. Researchers think the omega-3 fatty acidDHA is needed during this time to build neurons and their connections. Can’t do fish then take an Omega-3 supplement or even buy Omega Eggs. The whole family can benifit from this.
Food solutions: Salmon and other fatty fish, DHA-fortified eggs and yogurt.
Add Iron. By 5 or 6 months,babies have used up the iron stores they’re born with and need to get iron fromfood or supplements to support brain development.
Food solutions: Iron-fortifiedcereals
Morning fuel. School-agedchildren should start their day with low-glycemic-index breakfast foods.
Food solutions: Bran cereals,oatmeal, or whole-wheat bagels.
4) Young Adult
Got iron? 10 percent of women areanemic and new studies show that being even mildly iron-deficient affectslearning, memory, and attention. Luckily, restoring iron levels to normal alsorestores cognitive function.
Food solutions: Dark leafy greens,beans, meat, or soy.
5) Older Adult
Eat your antioxidants. People who eat more brightly colored fruits and leafy vegetables have less cognitive decline than those who don’t; antioxidants in produce may mop up free radicals and protect neurons from damage.
Food solutions: Berries and other fruits, greens and turmeric (which contains curcumin).
So, what I have concluded from doing this blog is that I will be adding more Omega to my clients menus. I will now use Omega Eggs, and Add more Fish to my Menus. Plus, include a lot more Antioxidants on the menu too. This should help keep my family and my clients healthy. Which is my main goal.After all my family and I eat from the same menus as my clients.
Thank you for reading this blog. Please give me your input and if you know something that works, please share with my readers.
Healthy Happy Cooking,

The Old Food Pyramid has been changed
Old Food Pyramid above
There's a new food pyramid in town, and it's a plate.
The USDA's new food icon is a brightly colored plate that breaks a healthy diet into four main sections: fruits, vegetables, grains and proteins, with a small side of dairy.
I personally like what I see. I think this is very user friendly and even a child can understand it. The question is will American's follow it. Yes, it looks like a very well balanced diet, which I am very much for. I do not think you should be without anything unless a doctor has told you that you are alergic to the food. There are times that you need to not eat a perticular food but not cut it out for ever. I beleive that as we grow older our meals size should get smaller, unless you are very active. Take a look at the new pyramid and the new website and let me know what you think. I like what they have for weight loss and kids. See the website http://www.choosemyplate.gov/
New Food Pyramid below:
First Lady Michelle Obama unveiled the USDA's update on America's visual nutrition guide, replacing the familiar - and much maligned - pyramid with a plate.
The food pyramid has been around since 1992, but nutrition experts don't seem to be mourning its demise.
"It's going to be hard not to do better than the current pyramid, which basically conveys no useful information," Dr. Walter C. Willett, chairman of the nutrition department at the Harvard School of Public Health, told the New York Times.
The new design incorporates seven key dietary messages:
- Enjoy your food, but eat less
- Avoid oversized portions
- Make half your plate fruits and vegetables
- Drink water instead of sugary drinks
- Make at least half your grains whole grains
- Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1 percent) milk
- Compare sodium in foods like soup, bread, and frozen meals - and choose the foods with lower numbers. Experts argued the now-defunct pyramid lumped all types of foods in its design - including unhealthy ones at the top of the pyramid . That made it hard to tell which foods were better choices.
From Forbes: "We're working to make healthy choices easy choices," said Surgeon General Regina Benjamin at this morning's unveiling, who linked the new diagram to First Lady Obama's Let's Move campaign. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack followed by explaining the need for the tool, "My Pyramid was simply too complex," he said, and is confident the new tool will be effective is a "simple visual research based icon about proportion sizes and what should be on the American plate."
10 Tips: These are from the website and I like them. I had to share...
The Ten Tips Nutrition Education Series provides consumers and professionals with high quality, easy-to-follow tips in a convenient, printable format. These are perfect for posting on a refrigerator.
These tips and ideas are a starting point. You will find a wealth of suggestions here that can help you get started toward a healthy diet. Choose a change that you can make today, and move toward a healthier you.
Let me know what you think.

I had fun making 25 cuties ever baby shower cupcakes. The whole cupcake is edible and the babies and blankets are made out of Fondant. They were a lot of fun but very time-consuming making that many. Next time I think I will do a tiered cake and just top them with these cute little babies.

The Day After.....
After cleansing, I feel very energetic and light on my feet. I am not working out today knowing that I need to gradually work in to my normal program after cleansing. I just took the dog on a long walk this evening.My pants are very loose. I will have to messure myself. I know I have lost a couple of inches already.
After cleansing if find it not put any more impurities into mybody. It's time to get serious and decrease the non-nutritional foods anddrinks that you haven't yet eliminated from my daily diet.
Things like sugary drinks or even diet soda or coffee, today would be an ideal time to quit. If you can’t hand quitting then drastically reduce your intake.By changing my habits now, it will help me make my upcoming Cleanse Day easierto complete and I will feel better, lose more weight quicker, and just overall be healthier.
I have already replaced my morning coffee to an herbal tea called Good Earth, Sweet & Spicy tea. This tea I don’t even need honey in because of the sweet spices of cinnamon. It tastes so yummy. I got four boxes at Costco for $6. and some change. This tea has cinnamon in it, which balance your blood sugar. So, if you replace your morning coffee with herbal tea or water. Iced herbal tea is a great substitute for soda this GoodEarth tea is really good cold too. In addtion to it being great for this summer, I do love drinking plain water most of the time. If pure water is too plain, add a squeeze of organic lemon or orange for a subtle flavor and fragrance. I love doing this to my water to make it more exciting when I need something else besides plain pure water.
Tomorrow I will be going to the gym to do Pilates workout. This is an ideal exercise for Everyone. It is a popular fitness trend, so unless you’ve been living on another planet you’ve heard of it-Pilates. It’s an enduring trend because it’s ideal for beginning and experienced exercisers alike. It’slow-impact. Convenient and easily modified to any fitness level.
Core strength, flexibility and awareness of the body are emphasized in Pilates.
Pilates practitioners have testified to:
Get moving our bodies are made to move.
