How can affiliate marketing improve your live and at the same time contribute to a healthier, more sustainable way of living?
Let me share on how my friend build her affiliate program after reading the 4 Hour Work Week book.
She decided over a decade ago to produce ORGANIC WHEATGRASS JUICE.
This idea came after WHEATGRASS made the change from ill to healthy for her. As a cell-biologist she understood why the shot of vitamins and minerals had a healing effect. At first she produced at home for herself, but after reading the book 4 HOUR WORK WEEK, she set up a larger scale ORGANIC production.
By now she distributes over Europe and even to the US. Below links to get information on the amazing benefits. To me and family it gives a a healthy nutritional basis. What I notice is that it feels good, I am energetic.
And as I am not at all analyzing all the time what to eat – and with all kids the complex diets are not the easy ones – it gives me comfortable idea of having basic vitamins and minerals. My partner is even more enthusiastic because she notices very well the difference in her energy throughout the month when she does or doesn´t take the juice!
As you may know, I am more an ECOLOGIST than a nutrition specialist, but my friend can explain all ins and outs on the functioning of the body very well.
Getting older – and that in Corona times – , it is more comfortable having a good basis.
In a life-zoom presentation that is coming up soon my friend will explain on the health benefits of the juices.
What I can see in Europe is the huge difference between the nature on ecological/organic produced lands in comparison to “so called CONVENTIONAL FARMING.
Not just on the land, but also there is much more live in the water. This is why I promote the organic production.

THIS POND IS SURROUNDED BY ORGANIC FIELDS IN GERMANY. ONE OF THE HIGHEST WATER QUALITY PONDS IN THE AGRICULTURAL LANDSCAPE AND WITH MANY RARE AMPHIBIANS AND INVERTEBRATES AS THE MEDICINAL LEECH.
Permaculture better, yes, but organic is also step towards more sustainable direction.
One of the reasons why the Organic Wheatgrass company is growing is the stable and good delivery (fresh frozen – even reaching Spain and Dutch islands – of course unfortunately the packaging and travel isn´t that green; but where to get ORGANIC PRODUCED FRESH JUICES FROM THAT IS GROWING NATURAL SPEED AND SOILS ? )
You can not compare the field grown with the green house wheatgrass. One of the benefits of field grown is that you CAN take many sackages a day and still feel well!
ONE OF THE BIGGEST REASON FOR GROWTH MAY BE THAT SHE HAS AN AFFILIATE PROGRAMM.
Apart from the commissions, you get free juices if you facilitate 3 clients (Juice Club members). Combine consumption with facilitating others the access to these ORGANIC and HEALTHY, and combine HEALTH with WEALTH. Many persons now have ADDITIONAL income and INCREASED IMMUNE SYSTEM.
Here are the wins for you that I can send you (email me):
1. FREE PRESENTATION on tips to improve health and immunity (ask me via email)
2. INVITATION TO JOIN LIFE MEETING WITH BRITT – where she can explain the healthy benefits and affiliate options (email me, so I can send link when meeting comes).
3. Get two weeks of shots EXTRA ORGANIC WHEATGRASS on your first order ! (email me for the dicount code!)
Do you know what means the word procrastination? As English isn´t my native language, it was a new word to me not that long ago. But, ones it was described I directly understood and recognised I have been applying it much of my life and to a lesser extend still do.
Procrastination is defined in Wikipedia as: the action of DELAYING or POSTPONING something. In other words, pushing something ahead. I´d like to at to that the something to be done is important or high up on the (mental) to do list. However, there is always a very important reason why you are not doing the thing and you may invent 1000 of other things to do first. At the same time, if really the action to be taken is important, then pushing it ahead is adding a second problem: not feeling satisfied about yourself. This second problem commonly is even worse than the possible consequences of using your time first for the action.
But, if it is so important, then why push it ahead? There can be many reasons that will be different for each person and in each specific situation. You may recognise that it could be because the thing that is on top of your to do list isn´t something you actually like to do or it may be that you are worried about the consequences it may have if you do it. I mean, imagine that the thing you have to do is finished, wouldn´t that create the time for a next thing to appear in the chain of end-less requests that you don´t like?
Have you ever looked at the procrastination as a tool to help you and protect you? If you recognise you are procrastinating already you have gone a big step ahead, because you can be thankful for this action. How about in stead of walking away and invent 10´s of things that are nicer to do, dive into what it actually is that you are worried about?
Is it that you do not like the feelings you have when you do that specific activity? For example, do you not like doing the dishes or write a complicated email. Or is it because of the consequences it may have? To stick to the example of the dishes, do you happen to brake the plates or glasses or burn your hands in the hot water? Or is it more, that after the dishes you´d normally have to clean the floor and that is really something you don´t like? And with the email is it that you stumble over the words and are worried about all the little comments in your head, or are you worried about the possible consequences of the reaction it may give ones you have send it out?
But, then again, have you asked yourself if you feel better by leaving the dishes, or wait with the email? Does the pushing further ahead solve the problem? Or does it only mean adding this feeling of discomfort for not doing what may feel as most important to you or others.
There are different ways how you can get along with the procrastination. One thing is to work on your feeling of guild for not doing the thing, because in many situations nothing really happens if you do the thing later on. But, if you do it later on, than it is more comfortable to do that with full acceptance of pushing it and enjoy the thing you do in between. The other thing is to work on what it is you are really worried about.
One of the tools I use myself is tapping. By tapping on the EFT points, I get in a more comfortable state and can put things in another perspective. Also suggestions to resolve issue x come up a lot easier.
Another useful tool, is to make a list of things to do in the day. But not a long list of end-less things that can not be done, but a short list of say 3 “project-lines” with each 5 actions. If you make that list in the morning and look to it a few times in the day and cross out the things you did, you may recognise it is not so hard. For me more over it helps to do the small, but important things, that I forget when I just go with daily routine.
Another useful tool is to write down the main things that occupy my mind, things that are really important and cross out the ones that within the next 3 months I can not do anything about to solve. For the other things, reflect on what I can do to get further ahead with them and do those things as a main priority for the to-do lists in the next months. This helps focusing. By focusing on these things and crossing out the ones you can not do anything about, you create mental space allowing also space for other things.
One of my best friends is a very good example of somebody that really avoids procrastination. He keeps his to do list active continuously and enjoys the crossing out. I don´t know if he likes to do the things or the crossing out, but it helps to progress very fast. Give it a try, or push it for tomorrow 😉.
As I still was a digibetic or analphabetic in the digital world, I was often amazed by the images and videos that are used in YouTube videos. Where do they get them and how can they find them? Now my question is: how much work is it to offer my images there?
There are many different websites where you can download your images, videos, and music for free for simple use as websites. For example, I use sometimes pexels (www.pexels.com). It didn´t take long for me to recognize that pictures are downloadable for free, but regularly for the nicer ones you have to pay a price. The free pictures make it attractive to get to the website of the stock and like that reach the wider offers.
Depending on the type of use for the download a customer pays a higher or lower price. For professional entities that regularly use images or videos in their digital communications, there is the option of membership. You may wonder, but who would be interested in that? Well, a member in Shutterstock can download 25 images for free per day, which means it already pays off if you´d regularly buy or use ten high quality pictures in a month. With the 25 pictures per day, the flow of good pictures to use for general purposes is higher.
Let me share the illustrative example of a friend who informed me the other day because I asked about the option to use the system for offering pictures.
My father is an amateur photographer with professional quality pictures. If you know me, you will not be surprised his key topics are nature and landscape. About twenty years ago, I told him that if he wanted to keep taking pictures, he´d better go digital and leave his slides.
It took a while, but the other day he mentioned that he is so happy he did listen to me (at least for ones he did…:)). For about two decades he is digital photographer now with 100.000´s quality pictures. However, he still uses them mainly for his presentations and books and has not commercialized them. Always I have been amazed at how he can pay for his expensive hobby because of the few lines he has for sales, presentations, and books. He offered that I can use them, so we discussed why not to put them available to a wider audience.
Basically there are two digital paths to choose from:
Focus on becoming a well-known photographer, and for that dedicate to building and maintaining a website, use social media, communications with clients and so on, or
Use existing stocking programs where you will not be very famous maybe, but your images and videos reach a wider audience and the automated system organizes the flow.
The first thought we had was on calculating a picture price to see if it makes sense to put in the effort. The single sales a photographer makes to specific orders from clients can give several tens of euros. However if you look at the prices offered to the clients per image via the stock-systems, you will have fun, because that is over ten times less per image. And most of that money goes to the stock-bureau. Logically our first thought was that it doesn´t work for him, because he wants good prices for his work. But, you will be surprised what my friend shared on this.
Not being a digital analphabetic anymore, I explored further. Because 1000 pictures sold in an automated system for a low price, may result in much more efficient sales. Selling 10 pictures with a lot of effort for a good price, or 1.000 in an automated system for a lower price? And, be realistic, the old-fashioned system would not allow him to scale to 10.000. He simply can not dedicate the time that is involved in attending to the clients.
I dived into www.shutterstock.com and yes, the picture price for customers with membership is low. Going over example pictures there from birds, I opened one and …it was from a friend. No idea if the algorithmics has linked us and for that reason, he was on the first page, but I want to believe the systems have not linked on that level. We met 20 years ago when we both already worked as nature consultants. As I asked him about the system, he said: “oh, yes, my main income comes from there now“. Even he has left his old career (as an employee) and became a freelancer choosing his activities by combining his picture sales with consultant work.
We had a zoom-call and he explained that he started ten years ago and has improved with adjusting his photography a bit to make more sales via the automated systems. Here comes the share with you. and what made my father okay to jump on this digital track too. The friend has uploaded about 9000 different pictures and the automated systems are selling for him HUNDREDS OF IMAGES A DAY. The prices per image have gone down a lot, but simultaneously the number of sales has increased.
Exploring for a few days, it gave me huge insights in this digital line. Not only can we increase sales and use of the pictures, but also more valuable images become available. I just love this part of the digital world. Everybody wins. The clever stock bureaus make pictures available from the photographers and organise the clients to the photographer.
Because of the low price offers, the flow of images is huge. It is the numbers that make it work and the automated system makes scaling possible. For the clients, they can improve their presentations and illustrations with high-quality pictures for a ridiculous low price (at least that´s what the photographer would say). However, the automated systems sell multiple times the pictures he can directly sale and in addition, they sell and pay a better price for images that are used for wider commercial purposes.
How about you? Do you have high quality pictures to put available online? You want cheap access to a wide offer of images and videos? Have a look and get started: www.shutterstock.com
A nice combi of Law of attraction, ideal day visualization and tapping!
When you are taking your life in another direction and use visualización techniques, 3 tips here that I use to make the process easier and increase the impact.
I recorded the video above because later in the day we had an online meeting with the Dutch and Belgic SFM members on the Law of Attraction.
One way to give yourself the belief that another life can be real is by experiencing it as real already. With a few simple techniques, you can make it easier to tap into your future image.
It is like applying the reaction of being worried or scared because you imagine something may happen – it doesn´t matter if the thing happens real or not, your sensation is real and with that if feels real and you interpret it as real.
What matters and impacts your thought, feelings, believes and SENSATION of reality, it is what you interpret.
And because of the law of attraction, you attract this reality. This is similar to positive ideas or imaginations, when you feel them and can live them as though already, they are real.
Have a look at the video and later apply the simple tips while doing your DAILY FUTURE VISUALISATION.
The tapping facilitates to allow the energy flow in a more natural way – without much of the thoughts and worries interfering.
When you are practicing your ideal day visualization, use these 3 tips to give it a bigger impact.
This nice picture came to my phone today while yesterday I discovered that one of my friends is organizing Forest Bathing activities.
After experiencing spontaneously the healing impact of energy at trees at an energy point in Estonia I regularly meditate under trees. That´s why I am not surprised anymore about the stories on healthy benefits from hugging a tree.
Have you ever tried it? It can be refreshing and empowering. To me it feels like rinsing and the relaxing sensation is like hugging a loved one. As meditation, it facilitates reconnecting and alignment.
This is one of the topics that fascinates me but experience it by yourself next time you´re outside.
Which microphone to use for filming YouTube videos outdoor? As large part of my life is outdoor, it has been one of my first questions … it even came before thinking about how to upload from phone to YouTube.
There are so many professional microphones and equipment that one can use, but for me personally, I needed a handy tool that I can take along in my pockets and plug into the phone as the opportunity for filming is there. Also as an analphabetic in this field, I only wanted to buy a mic on basis of the direct experience of others.
Can you imagine, just starting for the first time online activities and considering YouTube flogging and then buy a microphone of over 50 euros? And that while realizing that the fragile electronic equipment in my hands or bags brakes in no time… It was a bit difficult to just buy that for my explorations.
Anyways, I explored a bit and first hit the microphones of Rode that were for iPhone use…and I had a Samsung. Digital-analphabetic me got a bit blocked there and didn´t want to risk buying something that my phone wouldn’t recognize. I waited some months in looking further (don´t worry: got to the solution also for the Samsung).
As I tried to make any sensible recording outside the first challenge was to get the camera focused on the subject, next was to get the right message to the film, but soon I had to recognize that with only a slight bit of wind the direct recording with the phone gave a lot of annoying noises. So I wanted to get the simple microphone to plug into my phone.
A few months later nature photographer and filmer Max Kessberger came along during a survey for the last surviving moorfrogs in Baden Württemberg. As he obviously has experience with outdoor filming under a wide variety of conditions, I asked his opinion. He suggested also that the Rode-lav would be perfect for me to use for basic outdoor recording. Himself he uses a much higher quality microphone (about 15 times the price of the Rode lav), but no need for that for starting with vlogging-like videos.
I then got to the cable version of Rode-lav, because I can plug it into my SAMSUNG galaxy phone. The wireless version is more expensive but has the benefit that you can use it at a larger distance without the cable hanging around. Anyways, the RODE-lav is a really handy small microphone that fits into nearly any pocket and came with a nice bag.
I have put a small plastic cub inside the bag to protect the fragile wires and iron support (see image above). Now, after about a year it traveled with me 10.000´s of kilometers, and even while I destroyed in that time two selfie-sticks the microphone serves perfectly fine.
I ordered online of course, but after a day or two got the message that the CAT (microphone windshield) was out of stock and it would take much longer. That´s why I started to use the microphone without the CAT. And….I am really enthusiastic about that.
The results are amazing (when I find the video I made ones in windy conditions, I will put it here), because even under windy conditions the recording is good without the blowing noises. Wind with moving twigs gives a lot of disturbance when you record on the phone without the external microphone, but even without the CAT the Rode-lav recordings are great.
Of course, I still want to get the CAT for more extreme conditions, but in one year haven´t really needed it.
A microphone without cable seems easier to handle. Max suggested that I could use the Sennheiser MZA 900P to amplify and get to the wire-less version like that.
It is easy nowadays to start an online business because there are many easy and accessible tools. Nearly anybody who con work a bit with a computer and establish regularly an internet connection can do it.
Ones you are inspired and you really see that the online marketing is a key for you to live the life you want to, than the main difficulty you will be facing is to keep going forward on that journey.
In the period that I am on the journey I could see others like Matthew building from scratch his online business. Others have developed three or four times my income. Thing is not to be motivated and keep going, but to get back on track when the going gets tough.
And very often it is not because of the technical stuff … However being in this community with other spiritually mind liked persons it is a lot easier to reconnect and again see and feel the bright light and life.
The video below I made for those that appreciate the seminars from Abraham Hicks and Ester Hicks. They describe so well the importance of becoming the vibration that matches what you want to materialise in your physical experience, and to reconnect again and again.
Have fun with this video, it is one of my first real ads that is being prepared for a wider audience right now by google.
Damm it is so difficult not to stumble over all the words …
