Branding, Share With The World

Branding | How To Create  Landing Page

I read somewhere that One of the biggest challenges to online sales is to develop a  landing page that converts into action or a sale. Wealthy Affiliate  training  indicates this is an important part of online success. This page serves as the contact point that the viewer  comes to AFTER an ad has compelled them to take action to get to that page…

Branding | The Challenge 

You can have the best offer ever, but if it is presented in a manner that does not at once capture that viewers imagination enough to want them to move on and click on another link that clearly focusses  them on your offer,  you will lose that sale.

What are the components of a great landing page? 

How about a checklist you can use as guide to make sure that you have covered all the main components of the page in a manner that will assure success. Perhaps a thank you page is also in order as well as a bonus page, to create a sense of trust to the viewers. The message, to the viewers,  should be clear to what lies before and after. Another way to build more trust about your product.

I believe the landing page is a component of a sales funnel, and in that role, it should  convey the offer in a manner that is clear to what lies before and after…Branding

Developing your Branding

I have found that Branding is a very important part of achieving success online. As an example, just the brand names you know related to fast foods, beverage, hotels and so on. The list never ends.

Where to start looking ? Imagination is a great creator of many inventions and great online business sites. once you a website designed look at it and see if it displays any kind of branding icons to compliment your content. Isn’t the idea here to attract visitors to your site because of something special that makes them want to check more of your site out ? Of course it is.

Branding | Why should you develop a Branding profile?

Today it is more than ever to be unique and stand out from the crowd.

Smart Branding is Crucial | To Beat your competition in some cases.

Internal Branding Profile |  Core Values, Story, Beliefs etc.

Eternal Branding Profile | Core Scheme, Slogan, Logotype etc. Below is an example of a company Logo..

Women In The Workplace, Successful On All Stages


2019 Women In The Workplace Successful On All Stages

In this day and age it is evident that more women are reaching for higher positions in the workforce, and in many case they are achieving this goal. That is an awesome reality to many women who wish to compete on equal footing with the male employees.

Their great attitude in the workplace is always a plus for success.


RIO 2016 | Our Women are also leaders at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Women in the workplace are successful in all kinds of venues, not just the in the workplace, as you can see from all the world media coverage of RIO 2016 Olympics. They are breaking world records as well as individual records. They are the future leaders for women in the workplace.


Here in Canada |  we are extremely proud of their individual and team efforts, achieving their goals, while they lead and entertain the world like they did at Rio 2016. Yes, they made us proud to be Canadians.

Successful In Management | I am aware that many women are very efficient, great attitude and focused as leaders in a variety of occupational situations. One thing to keep in mind is that it is sometimes harder for women to network, but it is crucial they succeed in order to develop more connections in the right places. Women make a difference. When was the last time your attitude, good or bad, made a difference?


Gender Equality | Are more women reaching the upper ranks in corporations ? According to reports in some news journals, despite some progress, women are not represented enough at every level in many corporations. Men appear to have a more even playing field than women do. Do you feel that is right ? I sure don’t.


Introducing BEYOND by Ashley Graham - designer dresses in Misses and Plus Size at dressbarn.com!

Inequality At Home | Many women face an uphill battle when it comes to competing for leadership roles in their working environment. It has been noted that even in households where both partners work full time, about 40% of women indicated that they are doing more child care and 30%  report doing more chores than men.

In other words, women continue to do an uneven share of child care and housework, which obviously creates extra challenges of juggling home and work responsibilities.


Men have a clear advantage | over the women making it easier for them to move up the corporate ladder. What about the issue of equal pay ? That again is a hot topic considering. In my view women are being unfairly discriminated against when it comes to compensation.

Women, in many proven cases they do a much better job of leadership than men do. Women have caught up with men in terms of education. In the United States and a number of other countries, women now actually surpass men in educational achievement.


Corporate pipeline | Women remain underrepresented at the senior levels of leadership. Encouragement is needed to further improve their opportunities to reach senior management positions.  Are they are less likely to advance than men ? It seems to be the case in many big businesses and corporations. Many women also succeed very well with their own businesses.


Women Online Businesses | The online market place is also perfect for women in Business especially with leadership experience where they learned to make tough but fair and practical decisions. This new reality provides an opportunity to completely bypass the old male dominated power structure.

This comes with great responsibilities, so it is important to carefully consider your goals and what type of difference you want to make, before committing yourself to building your business platform.


Social Media | This is a powerful new frontier area for business owners. It appears that women are more at ease using these communicating tools and are doing very well in areas such as sharing their stories, connecting emotionally and building relationships along their online business  journeys. Believe, You can do it with style.


Entrepreneurial Skills | The individual who demonstrates a true passion for building a great business, push themselves to the limits in order to achieve  big goals. In other words, they are ready to go forward and see what is out there to help them build a successful online business if that is what they are passionate about. The sky  is the limit.


Affiliate Marketing | the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. You find a product you like, promote it to others, and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make. More information here.


Websites | Here at Wealthy Affiliate you can build your online business by starting with two free websites for Free. That’s right. No credit card required. I always like to try something for free before I commit myself to the next step. I trust you feel the same about this. It a wise move to try it out before deciding on your next step. Check out my WA review for more details.


Your Choice | It’s in your hands now. You alone are in charge of making a difference in your lifestyle as you consider building an online business. Should you decide to start your online journey, I will be there to help you get started. Wishing you the best as you move forward and build your future. Believe in yourself, I do.

Fear Of Failure, Are You Worried?


How To Overcome Fear Of Failure…

Fear | What is it really? Maybe it has something to do with unknown spaces. Fear of failure, are you worried ?Remember when you were very young and you were sometimes scared to go into an old abandoned building? Don’t feel bad about those moments even though at the time you were plain scared. I’ve been there too. Fear of failure, is real, if you give up and don’t try harder.

Live your dream | Best motivational video 2016

Failure | Usually means something did not turn out as planned. If this happened to you how would you deal with this setback ? Does this motivate you to try again with more determination ? I suspect that you already know how to fix this. Life is always a challenge that one must rise to for a more successful journey and peace of mind.

Affiliate marketing | What do I mean ? As an example I refer to trying something new to change or add to your current financial situation. This could result in learning to do what has to be done to improve your financial position. Perhaps discovering a way for new stable income such as starting an online business.

NRA | Online Business | No Real Action | Until Now | that can be a scary proposition don’t you feel ? I thought so to when I had the same opportunity to checkout this online business program. While browsing the internet I came across a site that explained what Wealthy Affiliate was about. Now I understand what website building real action is about. No more fear of failure right ? You can do this.

Free products | I don’t know about you, but I like to try things out for free before I make a decision on my next move. When I read the part where it stated that I could build two free websites for FREE. That’s right Free. As you can see I pushed my fear aside and started on my online journey.

Free websites | I was a little skeptical at first especially with all the online scams going around. Like you will probably do before you decide join, I read more information and even read several reviews on Wealthy Affiliate.com and learned all about the Free starter membership which includes two free websites with free hosting.

Training | Instant training starts the minute you join and start your free websites. Built in live video training once a week, plus a variety of getting stared lessons. All free until you decide to move up to have more access to additional training to enhance the quality of your business websites. This is your choice alone. You can remain for free with your two websites as long as you wish.

No Free Lunch | That’s right. No free lunch. If you want to be successful in life you need to focus and be ready to work hard. Anyone tells you its easy to build a successful online business without working hard is not being truthful with you. Success is not cheap and easy. Be prepared to work hard like any other successful business owner. It’s important that you you are aware of this fact before deciding to join wealthy affiliates.

To Believe | Should be your primary goal to success. Your future is in your hands as the decision maker, for future growth and building your online journey into the business world. Fear of failure is not an option you want to blame for not trying your best.

Your Turn Now | Hope to see you inside | Wishing you the very best as you decide on your future direction. I know you will make the right decision for you.

Wix Review, My Observations


Wix Review | Product Summary

The question to ask | Is Wix a good company for building websites ? I tried to build a wix  website a couple years ago using some of the tools provided but found that I did not have any support access other than FAQ, a forum and phone access.

Product name: Wix.com

Website URL: wix.com (http://www.wix.com)

Price: Free to start (includes free hosting and 500 MB of storage)

Price Premium: Monthly fees: 5 upgrade choices – in US currency.

VIP $24.92 | eCommerce  $16.17 | Unlimited $12.42 | Combo $9.25 | Connect Domain (most basic) $4.08

Founders: Avishai Abrahami, Giora Kaplan, Nadav Abraham

Overall rating: 6 out of 10

WIX.com

Overview | I have tried  Wix and noted that my overall experience is acceptable. Impressed with how easy it is to get started including the drop & drag options. A variety of templates to choose from as you design your site.

Impressive designs | for beginners and first time website builders. We were all beginners at first and felt comfortable with ease of access and clear distinctive steps to use as you started learning website building.

Build your website | Lots of apps to use such as SEO and email marketing, domains & mailboxes.  100’s of templates to try out. Also mobile optimization. Overall quit a few apps and templates to help you build your websites.

Free accounts | Premium packages | available when you decide to move away from your Free site so you can build a serious online presence. Upgrading to premium includes – 1 year free domain, remove wix ads, 10 GB storage and Google Analytics.

Overall View | I like the website builder. I don’t like the wix ads which supposedly disappear with premium upgrade. Template / theme change may affect your content which could mean rebuild your pages which is not a good thing if that is the case. I found the FAQ section very informative and should be read by anyone thinking of building a website.

Recommendation | I would recommend this service to anyone who is not serious about an online business. Has some good points.

Rating | I rated 6 out of 10 because I feel it is a good place to start learning website building. From there the opportunity to move on to more commercial side of online business is a good avenue with the learning acquired at Wix.

Wealthy Affiliate | I am pleased that I found wealthy affiliate in my online search. An amazing organization with the best online platform found anywhere. The starting motivating introduction offering two ad-free websites including free hosting was the best opportunity in my view. For more in-depth information, check out my Wealthy Affiliate review.

Keywords, Low Hanging Fruit


Keywords | Low Hanging Fruit

What are some “low hanging “ keywords for an online business site? Well that depends a lot on your niche. Writing quality content around low hanging fruit keywords is a must if your site is to have a chance to rank high in search engines.

Keywords | Low Hanging Fruit in the right place in your page with good quality posted content should provides additional information about your specific topic, product, affiliate marketing and so on. Search engines can use this information to better identify the content of your page, and hopefully better index your site.

Jaaxy | Keyword search is fun – try it now

How Search Engines Treat Domain Name Keywords | Do search engines take into account keywords in your domain name? It is important to consider how much traffic that will really get you in the long run?

Google owns the majority |  of the search engine market, two others, Bing and Yahoo, appear to be trailing quite a bit  behind.  In general, search engines do credit you for the keywords in your domain name, but that’s primarily so your customers can find you (ie. by the name of your business). I feel that makes good business sense.



What Is SERP

SERP ( search engine results page ) are web pages that are displayed for you when you entered a word or phrase in a a search engine like google. It means that sometimes your results look better when search engine presents them, which can be an additional benefit to visitors.

The user enters their search query (often using specific terms and phrases known as keywords), upon which the search engine presents them with a SERP.

How To Find Low Competition Keywords | Like low hanging keywords

Low hanging fruit keyword is a low competition keyword. Like a fruit tree, it is the fruit that is typically smaller (it gets less traffic),

What are SEO keywords? Those are the the keywords and phrases in your web content, which make it possible for people to find your site when they do a internet search.

If your website that is well optimized for search engines (speaks the same language) as its potential visitor base with keywords for SEO that help connect searchers to your site.

Did you know keywords are one of the main elements of SEO? That includes the so called “low hanging fruit keywords”.

In other words, you need to know how people are looking for the products, services or information that you offer, in order to make it easy for them to find you—otherwise, they’ll land on one of the many other pages in the Google results.

Implementing keyword SEO will help your site rank above your competitors.

Developing a list of keywords | is one of the first and most important steps in any search engine optimization initiative. Keywords and SEO are directly connected when it comes to running a winning search marketing campaign.

Because keywords are the foundation for all your other SEO efforts, it’s well worth the time and searching to ensure your SEO keywords are highly relevant to your audience and effectively organized for action.

 

Keywords | Low Hanging Fruit and SEO are directly connected to your online business success.

Workplace Fraud, The Enemy Within

Workplace Fraud | The Enemy Within

The high cost of Internet and workplace fraud is increasing at an alarming rate. Most of the frauds are committed by in house experienced employees. The risk of workplace fraud continues to climb as the economy slows and more employees experiencing financial problems.


Reporting Internet Fraud

Every fraud should be considered serious, especially to business and also personal situations. They must be reported so that alll government levels are aware in order to be able to structure training and budget for extra resources. Yes, that’s right. You the taxpayer are paying the bills for this costly crime.


Internet Fraud Statistics

Fraud statistics are getting higher every hour. The fraud investigators will tell you that it has become a very serious problem everywhere. Police departments have had to increase the number of personnel in order to get timely reports submitted.


Fraud cost small businesses $6,200 last year | Preventable

According to Kim Inglis, Business fraud is a major threat to any small business community in Canada, hitting victimized small businesses an average of $6,000. or more in financial costs in the past year.


Fraud attempts | small businesses victimized

One third of small businesses have experienced one or more fraud attempts in the last 12 months, and one in five have fallen victim. Only eight percent of defrauded businesses recovered their full financial costs.


Common Denominators | are you aware

Fortunately, there are a few common denominators that small business owners can watch out for.

  1. Some fraudsters come through your front door and their contact is your employee – who will determine whether you get to keep or lose your money.
  2. Are you certain your staff has sufficient training to recognize common scams like credit card fraud, counterfeit money, or bad cheques or money orders ?
  3. People using fraudulent credit cards have very specific buying patterns ( only expensive items. no concern about price or warranty, et cetera ) that should raise a red flags.
  4. There are simple things your employees can do such as checking signatures or examining credit cards security features. However, if your staff is unaware of the techniques, it’s likely that someone will successfully steal your merchandise.

Fraudsters come prepared | They are determined to win

If fraudsters have determined they’re going to target your business for a bad cheque or money order scam, they arrive well prepared. They will have scouted your business and printed false ID and authentic looking cheques with fake “verification”  numbers. Again, there are specific signs and preventative procedures – but they don’t do any good if your staff doesn’t know about them.


Telephone Fraudsters | Scammers

They don’t come through your front door because their chosen weapon is the telephone, either by talking to one of your employees or through “fax back” scams.

The most common attempted frauds  are email scams and phishing, followed by directory fraud, malicious software and phone scams.


Training Your Staff |  Number one priority

Frauds continue unabated and successful mostly because businesses don’t have proper controls in place and they haven’t trained their staff.

Some prevention can be as simple as hard-and-fast rules about never divulging or clarifying any information about your business, or never agreeing to a telephone business proposal.


Theft And Fraud

Many businesses declaring bankruptcy are blaming it on internal fraud. They say that most frauds are committed by employees with several years experience. Somewhere between 7 to 14 years working for the company. Certainly not a good picture of what our future is facing if this continues at this pace.


Common Types Of Frauds

Include misappropriation of cash and inventory, which are probably the two most common in a great majority of businesses. This affects staff morale and management confidence that really take a big hit. Don’t forget the cost to the business reputation and trust.


Preventing Fraud In The workplace

That is not an easy task to undertake, considering that millions of dollars are lost through these types of frauds. The big questions, is where do business owners start to try and correct this alarming problem. Some early steps that can be taken, include more complete checks of potential employees. Background checks are often not done even though this cost is low compared to the loss of internal theft.


Code Of Conduct employee theft

Many companies and organizations are now insisting that once hired an employee needs to read and understand and sign a code of conduct form. This should be followed up with clear communication about expectations.


Internal controls

Systems and internal controls definitely need to be monitored. Only effective when controlling who has access to data, along with access to phone systems and vaults. Also, it is paramount that a “zero- tolerance policy” be clearly communicated as part of the prevention strategies imposed by the company.


Whistle-Blowing Hotlines

This is another way to effectively let every employee know that there is another pair of eyes and ears to help reduce the risk of fraud in your workplace. This falls into several categories including, embezzlement, corruption and fraudulent documents. These hotlines are becoming more popular in a lot of big businesses. Don’t forget the “National Crimestoppers Associations”.


Crime Stoppers Associations | Canada and USA

http://www.canadiancrimestoppers.org/home

http://www.crimestoppersusa.org/home


Workplace Fraud | The value Of Prevention

Security analyst and certified general accountants associations will tell you that each company, no matter the size, should view prevention, detection and action taken as an investment instead of a cost. Any thing that helps you recover some of the potential loss… is not an expense but rather an investment for your business.


Be Aware | Everyone Is A target.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure..

Overall Ranking: 90 out of 100 points – Totally legit

As you start to read this review, I want you to know that there is no free lunch, as the saying goes. Hard work and lots of free training lessons are part of your online journey.

INTRODUCTION | Wealthy Affiliate is an online business university (academy/training) started in 2005 by two young Canadian guys (Carson & Kyle) who are always ready to assist  active members sharing experiences and helping each other succeed.  It is about helping people, like you and I, to build an online business, working from home. Here is what I like. It is FREE to join. that’s right. It’s 100% completely free to join. That is absolutely true. The Starter membership option only costs you… ZERO dollars. That means it’s free, no upfront cash or credit card.  Nothing at all. It’s like creating a free email account, really. You just have to fill out a form and you’re a starter member, plus you get to build two free websites and have access to free training.

Be Prepared | If at any point you decide to join Wealthy Affiliate, be aware of the following:

  • It’s Free to Get Started
    There is no credit card needed as the Starter Membership is free. That’s right. Free.
  • I’m Also Going to Help You
    I will be available to help guide you down the right trail of your online journey.
  • Dedicate Your Time | You MUST be committed to learning, asking questions and taking action.

Do Your Research | There are a lot of online ~ S C A M S ~ waiting for you to join them. They usually promise lots of easy cash, starter prizes, great lifestyle, with very little work, as long as you (Pay) a small startup fee for joining their organization, with usually no guarantee for your up front cash investment.

Wealthy Affiliate | is not that kind of online business. They also respect your intelligence and don’t expect you to pay for something you have not seen and probably know very little about.

No Free lunch | One thing to be aware off, is that you will be required to work hard to become successful. There is no free lunch when it comes to building your successful online business. Your website and training will play a big part of your success. I know you can do it with determination and a positive attitude. Remember, you are in charge of your destiny, and the only one to create success with your online business.



Wealthy Affiliate | is by far the most interactive, helpful, and thorough platform anywhere in the world for building a business online.

Starter Members = 2 Free Websites ( on .siterubix.com domain )
Premium Members = 50 Websites (25 free .siterubix.com website and 25 on your OWN Domains)

Premium offers WAY MORE than anything else there. WA free service typically supersedes any paid service.

Bonuses | If you join Premium within the first 7 days there are some bonuses that are part of your moving up to premium: See belowHow to claim your bonus.

Compare | When you put WA side by side with any product, it will make it apparent and a no brainer for anyone looking to getting rolling or expanding their existing business. Wealthy Affiliate is a potential option and it will be easy to compare WA along side any competitors going forward.

Integrity |  The integrity of this content is crucial to maintain a true flow of information to our clients and it is paramount to all we do / represent including supporters at WA.

Pros | As a starter you will receive messages from the the owners and members, welcoming you to Wealthy affiliate, and wishing you the best as you start your online journey. After starting my free training lessons, “Getting Started” course, I noted that I was being offered a 59%  discount on the first month if I decided to buy the Premium membership, before my first week was over (7 Days), to decide. I was also advised that I could continue as free member using the .siterubix.com platform for as long as I wanted at no cost. There was no pressure what so ever noted, which I feel is what people want to know before deciding on their next step.

Cons |  For newcomers the amount of new information may seem  “overwhelming” at first.  It  takes some time to “calm down”, refocus on an area and start again ( even that is easily solved by the big “Getting Started” button).You need to organize yourself so that you manage your time spent building your online business. Keep good notes and also make time for personal breaks. You will need to learn how to write good content on your pages and posts, ( there is lots of training for these tasks ) including website reviews of other members. Oh yes, Keywords are very important part of your online success, which means more training ( which is provided in the excellent training lessons).

WHO IS WEALTHY AFFILIATE FOR | Anyone can benefit, no matter what age you are. Teenagers to seniors, plus many business owners and retired professionals. The level of constant help, 24/7  when you need it. The member training lessons are simply amazing.

The owners, Carson and Kyle, can also be contacted for support.

Private Messaging | A personal one on one experience, makes it unique to contact any Wealthy Affiliate Premium member privately to discuss your online training or projects.  This includes contact with the owners, Carson & Kyle, for some help or feedback whenever you need it.

I believe that all the premium members find this to be the  BEST way to get some individualized feedback, and receive help on how to build their websites or just to get started the right way.

PRICE | Wealthy Affiliate has a two price points.

  1. Starter membership costs you $0 – free to join and learn, free to stay forever. Includes 2 free websites on siterubix.com
  2. Premium membership costs you $19 the first month (if you take advantage of the 59% discount during the first 7 days after joining) and $47 the following months. You may cancel at any time, if you wish to do so. If you decide to pay on a yearly basis, the Premium membership will cost you about $359. That would save you $205 than if you paid $47 per month during a year ($47 x 12 months = $564; $564 – $359 = $205) in savings, seems like a good deal!). Also note that the price may vary ( exchange rates may apply ) depending which country you live in.
  3. No Hidden Charges | You can also quit anytime and you can also come back. Does make it easier should you quit and have second thoughts about leaving WA.

FINAL OPINION/VERDICT

After working on this Wealthy Affiliate review for some time, I can certainly say that Wealthy Affiliate is a real legit opportunity. It provides everything you need to get started with your online business, quality training with amazing support, which is an excellent start for beginners.

An Obituary | Absolutely Brilliant

An Obituary | Absolutely Brilliant

COMMON SENSE

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years.
No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

  • Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
  • Why the early bird gets the worm;
  • Life isn’t always fair; and maybe it was my fault.
An Obituary ….Absolutely Brilliant

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job they themselves has failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

Common Sense declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became a drug addict.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar, in your own home, and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion by his daughter, Responsibility, and his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;

  • I Know My Rights
  • I want It Now
  • Someone Else Is To Blame
  • I’m A Victim.

NOT MANY attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

  • if you still remember him, pass this on.
  • If not, join the majority and do nothing.

Safety Against Scams, How to Avoid Online Scams


SAFETY AGAINST SCAMS | HOW TO AVOID ONLINE SCAMS

Child Safety Kit Scams | Beware Stay Alert

Every once in a while the Child safety kit scams shows up in different communities. That is usually only for you to meet with them so they can sell you a fraudulent insurance policy. Your local Police department showed be contacted so they are aware this is going on. Also many Police departments put child safety seminars on and sometimes provide identification kits for the parents to keep at home and only use in case a child should go missing. Great help to investigators.

 Stay Alert | The best security you can offer your family.

Most people know to keep their doors secure and locked, even when you are at home. Protecting your money and valuables is always a challenge in this day an age. Fraud Prevention is the goal of every law enforcement agency.

STAY ALERT | How to avoid being a Victim.


SAFETY AGAINST SCAMS

Teach yourself to know what is going on in your local and surrounding areas of where you live and work. National and local news media, including newspapers,  are constantly reporting different types of crimes occurring on a daily basis. Scams are #1 in many areas.


Lucrative Business

The BBB ( Better Business Bureau ) of Canada has all kinds of information available to general public. Check it out in your local or country where your from. These days you are not safe even in your own home. Scammers are able to reach you through social media, phones, computers and mail.


Reporting Statistics

Unfortunately, many victims are scared or to embarrassed to report that they have been a target of a scam, which is a serious crime. Only about 5% of the money lost through scams or frauds is actually reported. This is one place where family members can help. Be aware and keep in contact with friends and family members especially seniors or those who are medically handicapped.


Types Of Scams

The most harmful scams in terms of financial loss involve phony online romances, which costs victims millions of dollars every year. in some cases many victims have had to declare bankruptcy. Remember scams can target people of any age. The most vulnerable are seniors. They usual are at home during the day to answer the phone or the door. In addition to that seniors tend to be more trusting and may not have family nearby to ask for advice.


Identity Theft

This is another way that criminals can get access to your money. The CAFC, Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, is one place to check for ideas on how to protect yourself and your family. remember that there are a variety of successful frauds going around. High-tech thieves have a number of ways to obtain your personal information. Be Aware and don’t make it easy for you to be their next target.


Knowledge

Pay attention to what is going on in the fraud and scam world. Communicate with your families and  friends. Most of all,  if you become a victim or know someone who is, please make sure to notify your local law enforcement agency. they also need help from citizens to try and solve these serious crimes.  Keep notes of what you know so your prepared to assist during the investigation.


Common Sense

At the beginning I mentioned, How to avoid being a victim. Your knowledge and attitude will play a big part your security. With thought in mind I trust that you will share  your knowledge  any way you know how.


Good Practice

It is a great idea to make photo copies of all your important documents in case you should be the victim of theft or loss of your purse or wallet. That way you would know which bank to contact or which documents you need to replace. That goes for passports as well. keep in safe place.


Peace be With You as you navigate our complex world.

IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER


IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER – by Erma Bombeck
(Written after she found out she was dying from cancer).

Purple Hat

In honor of women’s history month and in memory of Erma Bombeck who lost her fight with cancer. Here is an “angel” sent to watch over you.

I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren’t there for the day.

I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.

I would have talked less and listened more.

IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.

I would have eaten the popcorn in the ‘good’ living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.

I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.

I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.

I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.

I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.

I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.

I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, wouldn’t show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I’d have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.

When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, “Later. Now go get washed up for dinner.” There would have been more “I love you’s”; more “I’m sorry’s.”

But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute… look at it and really see it … live it and never give it back. STOP SWEATING THE SMALL STUFF!!!

Don’t worry about who doesn’t like you, who has more, or who’s doing what!

Instead, let’s cherish the relationships we have with those who do love us.

Let’s think about what you have been blessed with, and what we are doing each day to promote ourselves mentally, physically, emotionally. I hope you have a joyous day.
