UPDATE: Tony Scott and cancer

UPDATE: It’s now reported that Tony Scott did not have cancer or any other major health problem, according to his wife.  Poor man, something tormented him.  I’m going to let this blog stand because of the hopeful information about cancer and the opportunity for more readers to watch the documentary about Dr. Burzynski vs the FDA (below).

ORIGINAL POST:
I’ve enjoyed Tony Scott’s work throughout the years.  I think most of us are assuming he committed suicide due to his cancer diagnosis, but the facts will emerge shortly.  For anyone reading this blog who may have what’s considered a terminal cancer diagnosis, you must go to the site, http://cancertutor.com.

HopeFor many – not all, of course, but many people have experienced a reversal of their health status following one of the protocols on the site.   I know from the wealth of personal accounts from those who have done so.  I’m not a fan of false hope, but am  of problem-solving and tenacity.  And acceptance when it’s the right time.

You may be interested to read my blog from June 20, 2011, about Dr. Burzynski vs the FDA.  The documentary runs 1 hr 48 min.  It will show you what’s possible in curing “uncurable” cancer.  It will also make you angry.

Set your state of mind each morning with this, says Wayne Dyer

feeling peaceful I greet every new day with the words, “Thank you, thank you, thank you.” That’s the state of mind that directs me, fulfills me, and sends me out into the world with a gift to share. It’s a blessing that I have learned over a lifetime—to experience the presence of Spirit in most of my waking moments. It’s a feeling of contentment and satisfaction, of peace and love.
—  Wayne Dyer

Yay! An Android short-cut cheat sheet!

Android 4.0 shortcut cheat sheetOk, it’s for 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) rather than most recent Jelly Bean but it’s still super helpful.  If you’re like me, and not fully up on even some of the basic functions for Android, you’ll love this.

It includes:

  • System navigation and home screens
  • Overall device configuration
  • App management

I printed it out, folded up, keep in my purse for handy referencing since I primarily use cell phone when away from home and office.

If you’d like a closer look at Android 4.0,  Lifehacker.com has it for you.

Incorporate for free in CA & NY (don’t worry, it’s legit)

incorporate for free in CA and NYeMinutes is on a mission to incorporate 500 businesses for free this year.  If you’ve been considering incorporating and your business is in California or New York (the two states where eMinutes can practice law), here’s the offer:

http://eminutes.com/entrepreneurs

They will take care of the filing fees and legal fees.  Of course, you’ll have to take care of your own corporate tax returns and any fees to Franchise Tax Board ($800 in CA starting year 2).  eMinutes will explain/disclose everything to you when you speak with them.

Go for it, this could save a lot of money.

Unique journaling idea when expecting new baby

Mom's memories about youBrenda Adams, a fitness trainer in Canada, wrote this:

I have a 9 month old and I started a journal for her during my pregnancy. I would write about how I was feeling, what she was up to in there, etc.  And now my husband and I write in it whatever we want her to know.

We leave it on our dining room table so friends and family can write in it anytime also.  I love all the messages that are in this journal waiting for her. We can share our excitement when she learns something new, our joy in just seeing her smile – all of it.

A pox upon you! How you, and Rihanna, feel with a cold sore

Well, a cold sore isn’t really a ‘pox’, which refers to smallpox during the Elizabethean era, but it feels like it when you have one displayed prominently on your lip or face.

Here’s a couple of photos from 2009, Rihanna trying as best she can to hide her cold sore while the paparazzi swarm around her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Katie Holmes with several cold sores. Picture was taken several years prior to her breakup from Tom Cruise.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Toddlers can get a cold sore.

 

 

 

 

 

If I had an early picture of myself with a cold sore, I would post it. But I don’t.  Isn’t that convenient?  But let me tell you, I suffered, not from the pain of the cold sore, which does hurt, but the embarrassment of how I looked.

A long story, but that’s how I came to develop Cold Sores Begone in the late 1980′s, which has prevented wannabe cold sores ever since.  A tingle on the lip is the early warning sign when you know to apply it before it appears.

The stigma of having a herpes simplex infection started 20 years ago thanks to a pharmaceutical company when launching a new herpes simplex II (genital) medication.   An old marketing tool, scare the shit out of people so they HAVE to buy the product, or drug.  They did a great job since the stigma is still alive and well today.  Ridiculous.

72% More Likely to Buy With WELL-PRODUCED Website Video

If you’ve been a reader of this blog, you know I wouldn’t steer you wrong.  This is a last minute opportunity for biz owners in NYC and surrounding areas to have a professionally produced video this Monday, July 30, 2012 ONLY.

I kid you not, it’s only $497 with Michelle Lange, a who’s who in L.A.  Run, don’t walk, contact her immediately.  The following day, she returns home to Los Angeles.

Phone: 323-715-5130
Email: michelle@mlangemedia.com

Those on the west coast can always contact her for a video but the $497 pricing is an east coast promo.

UPDATE 7/29/12: only 3 spots left. Call her!

Don’t worry if you feel totally unprepared for doing this tommorrow, she’s a wiz at this and will help with everything necessary.  She’ll make you feel comfortable.

Just can’t work out for tommorrow, Monday, 7/30, ok, so you’ll lose a couple of months, but was just told she’ll be back in New York City and Baltimore September 10-25 with another video special.  If you need a *sizzle reel, she’ll have a special for that, too.

*Sizzle reels, aka demo reels or promo videos, are 3- to 5-minute videos, fast-paced, a stylized overview of a product, service, or brand, can be a crucial in your marketing efforts to convey key messages to your target market.  Here’s the sizzle reel for M Lange Media, Michelle’s company, https://vimeo.com/44415829

Samples of Michelle’s other work so you know what I’m talkin’ about:
http://mlangemedia.com/video-samples/

This is what you’ll get:

  • A 1 hour professional shoot at studio, resulting in a 2-2.5 minute video of you speaking about your business
  • On-camera coaching during the session
  • Guidance on sharing your message in powerful soundbites during the session
  • Feedback on your script before the shoot
  • A fully edited HD video with lower third titles and your logo

Robert Grossman is just one of many industry experts who talk about the value of using video on your website. This is a quick and to-the-point read.

I’m a business owner.  You can’t afford NOT to do this, if not with Michelle Lange, then with someone else but you need to vet them first.  Not all videographers are equal.  It’s so much more than just pointing a camera and splicing.

If you’re lucky enough to get booked for Monday, please, please, please send me a link to your video, I’d love to see it!!!

BTW, I’m not being paid in any way, shape, or form, not even a barter or a dinner, I’m not a relative or close friend.  It’s like anything else I write about on this and my other blogs.  It just does something for me since the day I was born to problem-solve and share great or hard-to-find resources.  So enjoy it already.
