My friend and mentor Art Jonak teaches that we need to “step over the poop”.  We may h ave network marketing success and there’s always something to take care of.  I believe the late, great Gilda Radner of  Saturday Night Live fame also said: It’s always something”, although when she said it we all laughed.  And her book had that title.

Well, like most of us, I’ve been dealing with a lot of that lately.  There’s the stuff with my daughter Leila’s house, housemates, and support coordination.  Also, her birthday is rapidly approaching and I am preparing for that – her 30th.  And we have to fit in a snorkeling lesson for Leila  in prep for our upcoming team cruise to the  Caribbean.

I recently had to replace my computer and also my printer.  It’s never the same again.  And I’ve been dealing with Gracie’s hormones; she’s been chasing Sueño from under the TV furniture.  She took it over as her “nest” and really gets into “mommy protect the nest” attack mode.  So he’s been wary of her.  I’ve been putting her to bed early in another room to try to regulate the hours of light she receives.  That seems to be paying off, but Sueño doesn’t trust her.   By the way, they are blue-headed pionus parrots (amazons).

And I thought the kids were hormonal growing up!

Any way, like the rest of us I get  up every day, deal with what comes up, make sure I have fun doing my coaching and mentoring, and carry on with theater, music and life.

Here’s hoping you are dealing with and enjoying network marketing success – and there’s always something –

It’s soooooo nice to have my computer back for network marketing success!

I don’t know about you, but I’m not a techno-genius.  I’m not even a techno-expert.  Although next to my mother I look like an expert.  My old computer had died – rather, the motherboard did and could not be replaced.  So I had to get a new computer. 

This one has Windows Vista, although I’m supposed to update to Windows 7 when my copy comes in.  The Data Doctors are having some difficulty with that.  Anyway, I’ve been reluctant to do much till I’ve upgraded.

So what next?  My HP All-In-One printer died.  First the paper pick-up feature failed – I had to keep feeding over and over till it finally took a piece of paper to print.  Then the fax died – I CANNOT do without a fax – too many papers, forms for Leila and other things for me.  So I had to get a new one of those.  Hopefully, this time the scanner will work! 

Don’t ask me how long it took me to  install or why I was on the phone with HP in India at 1:00 am.

A lot of what I do for network marketing is online – especially the Mentoring for Free processes.  We do have a pro system that I pay for and use and it works.  Only $19.95 a month for at least 4 times the cost anywhere else for all the features we get.

Meanwhile, back to work helping and mentoring others, furthering my own skills with all the live training calls and recorded calls in the database.  If you have not been successful in network marketing, this is the place to be for all the training is generic.  No company names or products are mentioned.

It’s definitely so nice to have my computer back for network marketing success – contact me anytime if you’d like the free training we offer.

Wishing you all the success you desire,

Birdie Ballet

As many of you know I have 2 blue-headed pionus parrots Sueño and  Gracie.  You can see Sueño on my shoulder in the blog photo.  Poinus parrots are Amazons as opposed to African or Australian parrots.

Parrots are prey animals.  This means that they are the victims of hunter animals.  So they have a built-in distrust of unfamiliar or even known things, sounds, smells, surroundings,  etc. that could harm them, as a deer would of a bear or mountain lion.

So when a parrot steps on a stick that  I would hold or onto my hand, it is a sign of great trust that I will not harm it, drop them, or move my hand away quickly as in a trick and they would fall or be off balance.  Of course, just because they have a sense of trust doesn’t mean that they will always step up when I want them to do so.  They have a mind of their own and they are still wild animals.  I don’t understand everything – I’m not a bird whisperer nor Dr. Doolittle.

I have had parrots continuously for the last 39 years.  I find them to be wonderful companions and each one with his or her own personality.

The other day I was catching up on a recording I did from PBS of the ballet The Nutcracker done by the San Francisco BalletI had read that it was different and innovative – and I found it to be a wonderful, creative version that was very enjoyable to watch.  I don’t go to live ballet because when I did go I was distracted by the sound of the thud of dancers landing.  I prefer the de-thudded version on television where I can just enjoy the dancing and the wonderful music.

You know, the easy-looking way the dancers raise their legs in precise movements and angles from long study and practice.   How dainty are the leg raises, circles, pointing – just beautiful.  I love watching the movements I never mastered when I took ballet as a kid.  I never wanted to, as I much preferred tap dancing.

Anyway, I noticed after watching that delightful performance that when Sueño and Gracie decide to lift their foot to go onto my hand that the foot-lift seemed like ballet.  They raise their foot high and then gently lower it to connect with my hand or finger.  Voila!  Birdie Ballet!

Hoping you enjoy your birdie ballet or just your dance through life,
