Man, what a difference it makes to your mood when it's sunny vs. when it's rainy. Don't you agree? I also always get energized when I have meetings that turn out really positively like all of mine did yesterday.
I'm in the process of creating a bunch of new online profiles for myself and clients which has been fun. Once they're a little more ready, I'll be posting them here too. I love building online presences because it's fun to create. To me public relations is very creative and satisfying in that regard.
I'm gearing up to begin hosting more Free Life Int'l introductory meetings which I'm excited about too. I'm partnering with our local compounding pharmacy called TLC Pharmacy located up on PCH just past Pier Ave and am excited to begin creating that event as well. It will be geared towards moms since TLC specializes in babies, hormonal balance and nutrition. Can't wait. More details coming soon.
I have to admit, yesterday I was a little blue because of the state of our economy. One of the new potential clients I had met with is unable to start with me because her husband lost one of his grants. Now she has to scale back her vision for her work and that is just sad to me.
I am very concerned about my country's financial stability and Obama's government spending plan. So much so, I called Senator Boxer to leave her a message and as I was doing so, I began crying out of frustration and probably fear too.
I just don't like the fact that we're going to be spending so much money with the plan as it is right now. If you look to history for past depressions, listen to economists, read national newspapers, they are all saying this current plan isn't the way to go.
I know there's that old saying, you need to spend money to make money to which I agree to a certain extent. However, heavy sigh, it just really, really scares me to hear these numbers. Especially when there are so many programs that only Dems push and this really isn't non-partisan at all.
I especially dislike the effort to reduce assistance to universities and colleges that have faith bases being cut out of any federal assistance (should this pass.) Where's Obama's faith-based initiative rhetoric in that? I just don't get it.
My stomach is tight just writing about it. But maybe that's a good thing because I'm practicing isometrics right? LOL
In any case, I have a bunch of new pix to upload which I'll share in a little bit. Need to get back to work, but just needed to share. What's your opinion on the government spending plan? Would love to hear.
Thanks! Leave a comment!
