The Science of Getting Rich

Brian Beshore of Bayshore Records sent me this message and wonderful book.

I would like you to have the Wallace D. Wattles classic: "The Science of Getting Rich." If you aren't familiar with this book, this is the main source for all the prosperity teachers and law of attraction programs today. It was written in 1910 but it is a timeless masterpiece.

Marcia Wieder started me on my current path

When I thought to explore the possibility of coaching people, I looked around for information about coaches. Marcia Wieder was the person who inspired me the most. Known as America's Dream Coach, Marcia modeled something I didn't see much: giving away her expertise and talent. Certainly, she doesn't give everything away - after all, this is her business. Yet I came away from her site feeling better informed, smarter, cared for, and ready to take more steps. I experienced Marcia as generous and full of integrity.

From that site, I was moved to sign up to hear Marcia as part of a series of talks sponsored by Sarah Robinson (Direct Selling I learned so much that I was inspired to sign up for Sarah's entire course. That in turn led me to T. Harv Eker and Peak Potentials, as well as to many other great people and sites.

Marcia Wieder continues to inspire me. Her most recent e-mail talked about choosing happiness. Here's what she says:

"Happiness is a choice and one that can transform your life today.”
~ Marcia Wieder

I encourage you to check out Marcia's site and see how she can inspire and help you.

Breaking the Rules of Investing

Very interesting article from, a site for those of us who are - well, entering or in our third (st)age of life.

Basically it says not to listen to conventional wisdom about investing, lest we be led astray or to be too cautious. Best to do our OWN homework and decide what's right for us, including taking some small, experimental risks to see what we're capable of doing and earning.

Great Thought from Hillary Clinton

In her June 7, 2008 speech endorsing Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton said the following:

Every moment wasted looking back, keeps us from moving forward. Life is too short, time is too precious and the stakes are too high to dwell on what might have been. We have to work together for what still can be.

What a fantastic attitude! And one worth putting to use every day in my own life.

Prints of Paintings

My brother, a fine artist and all around fantastic handyman, found a site that sells prints of artists' work. He uploaded digital photographs of his work and then the site, ImageKind, allows buyers to choose the size of the print they want, frame style, mat color, and "glass" style. You also can buy notecards.

I think it's a great way for an artist to make some money from their artwork, for a mere mortal to own some fantastic art, and for art lovers to support their local artists.

The Good Timing Guide and Mercury in Retrograde

When communication breakdowns happen - the phone breaks or I don't get that e-mail message until days later or I miss that call - I often talk about Mercury being in retrograde. How do I know? I rely on Madeline Gerwick and The Good Timing Guide. Here's an excerpt from her June newsletter:

This Mercury retrograde (started on May 26th and ends June 19th) began with Mercury almost exactly square Uranus, a sign of technology challenges for sure. This could mean between now and June 10th, we could experience a lot more computer crashes, or technical problems with telephones, emails, faxes, printers, and other electronic equipment. So hopefully you prepared for this Mercury retrograde period well before hand and did a full system back-up. This cycle (Mercury square Uranus) will be back again at the end of June and early July, so once this retrograde is over on June 19th, you must still be vigilant about your computer back-ups and car repairs.

Mercury moves backwards through the sign of Gemini this time, suggesting that we’re all reconsidering certain data, finding our mistakes in the details we ignored before (just like above!), and since it’s square to Uranus, this Mercury retrograde could also bring us some upsetting or unexpected news that leads us to reconsider what we believe about the past. Mercury is also trine Neptune and this suggests that our intuition will work better for us than logical analysis. If you get caught in a tough situation during this Mercury retrograde, check into your guts or whichever part of your body sends you your messages. And speaking of guts, did you know that your guts have “brain cells” there? They’re known as neuro-peptides and that’s the reason your guts tend to get the information faster than our brains do. Our brains must go through a lot of processing of the data, but your guts just get the information and pretty quickly they give you an accurate sense of the situation. So tune in to what’s going on there.

It's fantastic information, that helps me understand a little more about what is influencing my daily life. If you want to know more about the Good Timing Guide, go to this site.
