Back to writing info junkie stuff with a dash of small business

If you’ve read this blog in the past, you know I’m a small business owner.  All the hard work and no days off now behind me with the recent re-launch this past January of Cold Sores Begone Stick™ and Canker Sores Begone Stick™.

They’re both still equally effective, but now are all natural, organic, and in balm sticks vs the previous liquid.  Still safe for even young children.



When you feel the tingle of an oncoming cold sore. Apply for instant prevention, even if on- the-go. How awesome is that?







For those agonizing canker sores inside the mouth, very soft balm stick doesn’t sting! Yay!  And more, cankers heal  often overnight, but for some, it may take an extra day or two.





Look for both items soon in local health food stores, but until then, they can be purchased from the websites.

A website that helps women create new friendships locally

Girlfriends dining outI remember feeling so alone and lonely when I moved to another city where I had no friends.  I would be eating in a restaurant, alone, and watch girlfriends at another table, talking, laughing, enjoying the familiarity. I would look longingly at them, remembering when I had that, when I’d always had friends, many of them.  I was self-employed and working from home, making it a challenge to meet people.

I eventually  joined an organization that met every week, which lead to the close, long time friends I now have today.  I’ll never take that for granted again.

I only wish that had been available when I most needed them. It’s an online community where you can find local women also seeking new friends either due to a move, an empty nester, new grads making friends outside of school, or someone who’s newly retired. can provide online tools to help you create meaningful friendships with the qualities you hope to have in common.

Shasta Nelson is the brainchild behind and has been interviewed on numerous TV shows and in newspapers.  Tommorrow, Tuesday, March 12, 2013, 3:00 pm on ABC. she’ll be a guest of Katie Couric’s show.   Shasta shares some behind-the-scenes about her interview with Katie.

Dr.. Michael Mosley


In this fascinating, lively one-hour documentary, Eat, Fast & Live Longer, we follow UK medical doctor Michael Mosley, who wants to stay younger, lose weight but make as few changes to his life as possible. He admits he has a lack of self-discipline with food, and explores the powerful new science of fasting, finding a way of doing it that still allows him to enjoy his food. I’ve started it today, the 5:2 fast. You’ll understand what this is after you watch the video.  I’ll keep you posted on my results.

109 Year Old Holocaust Survivor With Answer to a Happier Life

I feel inadequate after listening to this woman.  With what she’s lived through, she chooses to see life as she describes. I know how to do it, so what allows me to forget, which I pay for.  That too must be a choice that I wish to will change right here, right now.   The video is only 1 min 21 seconds.

The incredibly embarrassing cold sore and how to prevent it

Yep, many of you can prevent a cold sore from surfacing, but you must be on top of it. When you feel that early warning ‘tingle’, you must take an antiviral medication or apply a good remedy right at the stage or you’re sunk.  Take it from my friend, Katie Holmes.


Once it starts to erupt (redness, a small bump, swelling, etc.), the sooner you address it, the better success you’ll have to keep it smaller and heal faster.  Results can vary among individuals how well this will work, but also a factor is the severity of the current infection.  Super-extraordinary stress and fatigue, for instance, can trigger a more severe infection.

There are FDA-approved medications available, but for those who prefer to go the more natural route, there are options people swear by.  Taking lysine supplements is a popular option. You’d be suprised by what some ‘natural’ enthusiasts apply – ear wax!  I’ve never been clear if it’s important that it’s yours or can be from a ‘donor’, LOL.

What works great for one may not for another, but a good place to start is to research consumer reviews.

Cold Sores Begone™, a remedy I developed 20 years ago, is a cult favorite, a number of celebrities order it online, and the two most popular health magazines,  PREVENTION and NATURAL HEALTH, have endorsed it.

Cold Sores Begone Stick™ is an all natural, organic lip balm and you really don’t want to be without it.   When you feel the tingle, apply, you’re good to go. Self-esteem stays intact.

Fortune Hi-Tech reps-you were meant to be here instead

As a network marketer myself, my heart goes out to you.  But I bring good news.

I belong to a global shopping network who’s founder has dotted every ‘i’ and crossed every ‘T’ to ensure it will be here for the long term.  No autoships, no joining or website fees.

I’m simply re-directing my everyday expenses, such as groceries, gas, clothing, travel, home maintenance supplies, pet care and more to retailers partnered with the network. And it doesn’t cost me more to do that, it saves me money.

There’s nothing like this out there that can and is helping consumers and businesses.  I get particular satisfaction as I see small and medium size businesses grow in their communities due to their partnership in the network.

This network offers 10 ways to earn money.  The following is but one of them.
