Australia to Welcome New Skincare Brand in May 2017


Good news, Australian friends! The wait is almost over to be first in Australia to partner with the doctors who created Proactiv as they launch their new line of anti-aging skincare products Down Under!

This is an unprecedented opportunity! The anti-aging skincare industry is a fast growth, disposable income opportunity!

Sure, you have other direct sales companies pitching you on their businesses, but none of them have become world respected with millions of free media impressions each year. None of them are offering to let you own a piece of the company that created the #1 acne treatment in the WORLD! Not one is offering you the opportunity to represent the #1 premium anti-aging products in America, the #1 premium acne treatment in the U.S., or the #1 fastest growing skincare brand in America five years running.

Where would you be if you had been allowed to own a piece of Proactiv when it first came to Australia? You'd be wealthy beyond  your wildest dreams! This is your one chance to be first in Australia to represent the same dermatologists on their new clinical brand for men and women.

Launch date is coming up in May 2017. You have a few short weeks to pre-enroll and start talking to your friends before EVERYONE is talking to your friends! Email me for more details or Pre-enroll  with no obligation to get some free gifts and updates.

The Bible on Anxiety


Anxiety is a silent killer. Stress hormones wreak havoc on our immune systems, mental health and overall health. According to webmd, among other things, physical symptoms of stress can include:

  • Low energy.
  • Headaches.
  • Upset stomach, including diarrhoea, constipation and nausea.
  • Aches, pains, and tense muscles.
  • Chest pain and rapid heartbeat.
  • Insomnia.
  • Frequent colds and infections.
  • Loss of sexual desire and/or ability

Faith is a powerful healer. The Bible provides us with some great ways to deal with stress in Phillipeans. 
  • 1. Prayer. Turning to a Higher Power with your worries can provide a sense of peace and assurance someone bigger than you is in control
  • 2. Petition. Asking God to actively participate in the solutions to your problems can help provide solutions
  • 3. Thanksgiving. Counting your existing blessings and remembering the ways God has already provided for you can help allay your fears and worries and give you peace of mind.
  • 4. Present your request to God and trust that He will provide a way. Then stop worrying!

Nerium Under Fire for Fraud

My face before using Nerium (when I was actually ill) and with my Nerium burn


ALERT! NERIUM FRAUD!!! 

The Nerium brand of skincare is under fire yet again and faces even more trouble now. In addition to faulty science, Nerium burns, Nerium rashes and lawsuits from celebreties like Ray Liotta for using his likeness to make false claims, now the CEO Jeff Olson is accused of massive fraud. 

Nerium burned my own sensitive skin badly and caused pimples and irritation after just three days of use which is why I began researching the products and the company. This is why I have always warned people: Nerium = bad products and bad business.

Men & Marriage: Debunking the Ball and Chain Myth

What Popular Culture Teaches Men About Marriage Is Not Necessarily True

Marriage is not worth it for men. It’s not worth the practical and financial sacrifices, the lost romantic opportunities, or the “lack of freedom.” All in all, a spouse is a ball and chain—of little benefit to any man interested in pursuing happiness and well-being. 


Considering both the latest survey data and the continuing decline in the marriage rate, it’s fair to say that this viewpoint is becoming more entrenched in our society, particularly among younger men.1 But despite its prevalence, the ball and chain view of marriage is simply not supported by the research. Indeed, the benefits of marriage for men are substantial by every conceivable measure, including more money, a better sex life, and significantly better physical and mental health. Yet many men remain ignorant of these benefits, a view seemingly promoted by popular culture.

Read about the health and other many benefits of marriage for me here:

Nashville Woman to Climb for Lung Disease

https://us.vocuspr.com/Publish/3099793/vcsPRAsset_3099793_120823_c2742960-b4bc-426f-96db-8bfc547b53e9_0.PNG


Erica Honeycutt, a 28-year-old from Murfreesboro, was diagnosed with Non Specific Interstitial Pneumonia (NSIP) in summer of 2015.  NSIP is a very rare lung disease that affects the tissue that surrounds and separates the alveoli, or the tiny air sacks of the lungs.
”Back in the latter part of 2014, out of nowhere, I began to notice being short of breath by doing normal daily activities,” says Honeycutt. “For example walking to the mailbox, carrying in groceries, and even talking became difficult.”
In the beginning of her journey, Erica was diagnosed with a grocery list of possible conditions, such as asthma, lupus and Castleman’s disease.  During a hospital visit in February 2015, a hematologist at Vanderbilt noticed scarring on her lungs and enlarged lymph nodes in her chest. He referred her to a colleague pulmonologist who conducted a biopsy.  She was diagnosed with NSIP in June 2015.
“I remember being afraid, feeling alone, angry, and devastated because in the mind of a 26 year old, you should be perfectly healthy, and when you all of a sudden can’t breathe and don’t have answers as to why, you begin to feel hopeless,” says Honeycutt. “However, you are not alone and you don’t have to feel hopeless”. 
Over 33 million Americans are currently living with lung disease.  Young or old, smoker or not, lung disease can happen to anyone at any time. Erica will be sharing her story at our 2017 Fight for Air Climb in Nashville on Saturday, February 18th from 8:00am to 10:30am.
This unique and signature event challenges participants to complete the 29 floors, or 638 steps, of the Fifth Third Center. Registration is $35, plus a required $100 fundraising minimum to climb. We invite the Nashville community to join our fight against lung disease as we climb for those who are not able. This event is expected to sell out, attracting over 100 climbers and local fire fighters to step up for a cause.
We invite you to step up to the challenge, to climb for Erica and the 33 million effected by lung disease.

New Poll Reveals Which Hazards Increase During Holidays

New Poll Reveals Which Hazards Increase During Holidays 
Allstate finds homeowners not quite prepared for holiday home hazards 

Festive, joyful and togetherness are just a few words that come to mind when thinking about the holidays. However, a new Allstate poll shows “hazardous” should be at the top of the list, too. 
Allstate’s fourth annual national holiday home hazards survey The 2016 Allstate Holiday Home Hazards survey was conducted by FTI Consulting from October 6-16, 2016. The survey was conducted among N=1,015 adults (home/condo owners and renters) and an oversample of N=224 first-time home or condo owners who purchased their very first home in the past year.
reveals homeowners as well as renters aren’t prepared as they could when it comes to protecting their homes during the holidays. Some of the most common pitfalls are leaving temptations for “porch pirates” and sharing too much on social media. (See details below). And in Southern States* specifically, Allstate found the following hazards have the largest spikes during the holiday seasonPercentage change based on holiday season versus non-holiday season homeowners, condo and renters claim frequency for *Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana and Mississippi during the three-year period of Jan. 15, 2013-Jan. 15, 2016, with the holiday season from Nov. 15-Jan. 15. Only hazards that occurred at least 10 times during the three-year period, with positive and statistically significant percentage changes, were included.   :
  1. Bursting Pipes from Freezing 
  2. Fire originating from a fireplace
  3. Smoke damage from Kitchen
  4. Ice Dams 
  5. Glass breakage
“With so much focus on shopping, gift giving and making holiday meals and other preparations, people may overlook simple, but important safety steps to protect their homes,” said Steve Blume, Allstate agency owner. A few precautionary measures can better protect the hosts and their guests:

  • Test smoke alarms and/or carbon monoxide detectors 
  • Inspect home interiors and exteriors (including windows, roofs, gutters and chimneys) for leaks and damage.
  • Keep your home heated above 65 degrees to prevent pipes from freezing
  • Limit the number of lights per outlet or power strip to prevent a live Christmas tree fire. 
  • Place a live tree away from heat sources to minimize fire risk 
Not taking proper precautions can lead to costly damage. Allstate claims data shows the median cost of bust pipes from freezing was $5,500, fire-related fires was $10,149 and electrical fires was $22,683
Holiday trips also may become holiday home hazards as travelers often leave behind opportunities for theft. 
  • Consider stopping your mail and/or newspaper delivery before taking a holiday trip.
  • Ensure all doors and windows are locked before leaving on a holiday trip (Only about 77% of homeowners and renters plan to do this).  
  • Lock all vehicles left in their driveway or garage. 
Think no one will notice you’re not home? Think again. Allstate found the following happens more frequently during the holidays: 
  • Missing Property from garage increases 37% during the holidays (median cost $1,697)
  • Burglary increases 6% (median cost $2,911)
  • Theft from unlocked vehicles increases 2% (median cost $1,177)
SOCIAL MEDIA SHARING – Oversharing can send a message to criminals that a home may be unoccupied. Those who post on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and other popular sites should think twice before: 
  • Sharing pictures of yourself at holiday travel destinations 
  • Sharing details of travel itinerary, such as being at the airport or on their way home 
  • Showing off presents
Taking a few simple steps can be the difference between the holidays being happy and memorable for all the right reasons.

Take to the Stairs and Fight for Air

https://us.vocuspr.com/Publish/3099793/vcsPRAsset_3099793_120823_c2742960-b4bc-426f-96db-8bfc547b53e9_0.PNG



Registration is open for the 2017 Fight for Air Climb in Nashville

If the stairs don't take your breath away, the view from the top of the Fifth Third Center will. The American Lung Association in Tennessee is holding its annual Fight For Air Climb in Nashville on Saturday, February 18, 2017, and they're looking for hundreds of participants to help them in their fight for clean air for everyone! 

On Event Day, climbers, walkers, runners, firefighters, first responders and supporters of the American Lung Association will climb Fifth Third Center in downtown Nashville. The participants will challenge themselves to climb 29 flights of stairs, 644 steps, while raising money to help support the fight against lung diseases. 

The registration fee for the Fight for Air Climb is $25 through December 31, 2016; and $35 after January 1st. For $45, thrill seekers can take part in the new Power Hour Challenge, in which 20 advanced climbers will racer up and down the stairs as many times as possible in one hour. In addition, all participants need to raise a minimum of $100 to participate and can quality for a variety of incentive prizes based on the amount of money they raise. 

Lung diseases such as asthma and COPD cannot yet be cured, but they can be managed. Making sure people know what's needed to take control of these lung diseases is one of the American Lung Association's top priorities. Thirty five million Americans are living with chronic lung diseases such as asthma, lung cancer and COPD; lung cancer is America's #1 cancer killer. 

You can climb as an individual or form a team with family and friends or one's company. Anyone interested in more information about the Climb, participation in the Climb or in making a donation to support this event, please visit the website at www.ClimbNashville.org.
