If you are working are you paid what you think you are worth. This may seem like a strange question, however throughout most of my working life I can say I was paid what I was worth with the result that I never complained about being short of money. I was happy and Content.
I met many people who moaned about lack of money and the only advice I could give them was to stop complaining and change job or go and find another way of making money.
I suppose I was lucky and took early retirement at the age of 50, however last year I moved to Cyprus and got married and realised that I needed to boost my income because my pension was not enough to support my family,
So I returned to work as a consultant for someone else, however thing did not work out and I felt that I was not being paid what I was worth so I stopped working
Working for someone else usually has certain advantage such as regular payment which helps pay bills according to ones lifestyle, and the work is usually secure but the big drawback is curtailment of personal freedom as for X number of hours a week your time is not your own.
I am now returning to working online where in the past I have been able to earn an income and which provides flexible hours and I can work on my terms to build a sustainable income to enhance my pension.
Starting an online business can be quite daunting and there are many traps for the unwary, If it sounds to good to be true it usually is.One needs to understand that an online business is no difference to a traditional offline business other that greater use of technology.
Your business needs to sell consumable products, which people are wanting to purchase at a reasonable price, because you need customers. So you need to spend some time researching you opportunity.
There are many ways we can all act a little more earth-friendly today on this, the globally recognized Earth Day, April 22. Here are just a few ideas on how to make your day a little more green with a little help from Organo Gold:
Go Green, Drink Green
Organo Gold’s Organic Green Tea is one of several OG products that are certified organic by Ecocert, which means that the product is made with a minimum of 70-95% of organic ingredients. Earth friendly, packed with antioxidants and deliciously refreshing? That sounds like a win-win on all counts to us!
One of the biggest tips worldwide on Earth Day is for the coffee drinkers of the world to opt for reusable coffee mugs, instead of opting for to-go cups with plastic lids and paper that can end up in landfill. In addition to being super eco-friendly, it’s also a great way to promote your OG business and get the name out there. So today is a great day to head online and pick up an OG travel mug for you and every OG coffee drinker in your household.
Say No to Plastic Bags
One of the things that makes Organo Gold’s Ganoderma lucidum so potent is the careful way in which it is harvested. While other companies cut corners and use plastic bags to help harvest their Ganoderma mushrooms, Organo Gold only uses natural log harvested Ganoderma, which is more authentic and potent. So with OG, you can be sure you are not falling for cheap imitations that use unnatural plastic bags. Not only are plastic bags infamously bad for the environment, they are a shortcut some companies use to grow their mushrooms, which means they don’t produce the same potent natural spores as the OG method. There’s a reason that Organo Gold partnered with the largest organic Ganoderma plantations in the world, and invested in the $240 million Gano Herb Industrial Park in China — to ensure our products are premium and not just the finest on the planet, but the finest FOR the planet.
Happy Earth Day to all of our OG Family members and distributors! May OG products help you to live a little greener and be more environmentally conscious every day.
If you go way back, though, the Easter Bunny starts to make a little sense. Spring is the season of rebirth and renewal. Plants return to life after winter dormancy and many animals mate and procreate. Many pagan cultures held spring festivals to celebrate this renewal of life and promote fertility. One of these festivals was in honor of Eostre or Eastre, the goddess of dawn, spring and fertility near and dear to the hearts of the pagans in Northern Europe. Eostre was closely linked to the hare and the egg, both symbols of fertility.
As Christianity spread, it was common for missionaries to practice some good salesmanship by placing pagan ideas and rituals within the context of the Christian faith and turning pagan festivals into Christian holidays (e.g. Christmas). The Eostre festival occurred around the same time as the Christians' celebration of Christ's resurrection, so the two celebrations became one, and with the kind of blending that was going on among the cultures, it would seem only natural that the pagans would bring the hare and egg images with them into their new faith (the hare later became the more common rabbit).
The pagans hung on to the rabbit and eventually it became a part of Christian celebration. We don't know exactly when, but it's first mentioned in German writings from the 1600s. The Germans converted the pagan rabbit image into Oschter Haws, a rabbit that was believed to lay a nest of colored eggs as gifts for good children. (A poll of my Twitter followers reveals that 81% of the people who replied believe the Easter Bunny to be male, based mostly on depictions where it's wearing a bowtie. The male pregnancy and egg-laying mammal aspects are either side effects of trying to lump the rabbit and egg symbols together, or rabbits were just more awesome back then.)
Oschter Haws came to America with Pennsylvania Dutch settlers in the 1700s, and evolved into the Easter Bunny as it became entrenched in American culture. Over time the bunny started bringing chocolate and toys in addition to eggs (the chocolate rabbit began with the Germans, too, when they started making Oschter Haws pastries in the 1800s).
The Easter Bunny also went with European settlers to Australia—as did actual bunnies. These rabbits, fertile as they are, got a little out of control, so the Aussies regard them as serious pests. The destruction they've caused to habitats is responsible for the major decline of some native animals and causes millions of dollars worth of damage to crops. It is, perhaps, not a great idea to use an invasive species as a symbol for a religious holiday, so Australia has been pushing the Easter Bilby (above, on the right), an endangered marsupial that kind of looks like a bunny if you squint. According to some of our Australian readers, the Easter Bunny is not in danger of going extinct.
