Lose Weight in 10 Minutes

Did you know that most people would lose weight if they would cut out their worst 10 minutes of eating each day?  Is it true?  Can you really lose weight in 10 minutes?

 

It only takes 10 minutes to eat 500 calories or more of refined carbs.

You can eat perfect all day and then hit a low point where you just feel like eating a comfort food and wham! Your diet is blown.

 

Do you have a worst 10 minutes of the day for eating?
Do you gobble down a burger and fries in the car?
Is cereal before bed your downfall?
Do you head for the junk food drawer as soon as you come home?

 

Just having this ah-ha moment could be enough for some of you to break the habit and this one shift alone could help you drop 4 to 5 pounds by next month without changing anything else.

 

For others you might need to give your body some assistance to curb those cravings.  A meal replacement will help do that along with other benefits like more energy.  Get in touch with your [imwb_cgt_cityName], [imwb_cgt_regionName] team member for more information and to get started.

Setting Goals and Achieving Them! Part 1

Let’s start with the foundation of why setting goals is so important in life…
 
If you think of it from the standpoint of getting into your car and but having nowhere to go. If you didn’t have a job to go to, school to attend or someplace to go, you would just sit there in neutral. There is no forward progress, there is no backward progress, and you would just sit still. The key is to not over complicate it though; your goals are really like a road map, they give you direction or a destination. This allows us to chart out a path to get to that destination. This “road map”, much like in traveling, gives us direction in life and keeps us focused. Without it we run the risk of being totally lost.
 
I recall hearing about a trainer who did an exercise with two sheet of paper. The trainer said, “Write your goal down on the first sheet of paper.” After writing down their goals, the participants were instructed to crumble it up and throw it. The participants asked, “Where?” The trainer again simply said, “Throw it.” As you can imagine paper was thrown all over the place. Then the trainer asked them to again write their goals on the second sheet and crumble it up. He then walked to the center of the room and placed a trashcan on the floor and said, “Now, put it in that trash can.” People began to get up and really focus on throwing their paper into the trashcan. He even offered a prize for those who made it so some even walked their paper over to the trashcan and dropped it in. The difference between the first and second paper is that with the second paper they had something to focus on, the trashcan. The trashcan, in this example, represents what goal setting is.
 
You have, hopefully, heard of S.M.A.R.T. goals. If not, you should for sure study up on them and the importance of this acronym. I will give you the basics here:
 
S – (Specific) You have to be specific about your goal. It needs be definable. Nothing is dynamic until it becomes specific. It is important to understand the difference between a “dream” and a “goal” here. For example, to say, “I wan to make a lot of money” is a great dream but not a goal. To say, “I want to make $500,000 this year” is a specific goal.
 
M – (Measurable) You have to have a way to keep score. Imagine a sporting event with no scoreboard? How would you know who is winning the game? The same applies to your goal, if you can’t measure it how will ever know if you have reached it or not?
 
A – (Attainable) You have to base this one on your own resources and level of commitment. If it requires 35 – 40 hours a week and you are only willing or able to commit 10 – 15 hours, it is not attainable for you.
 
R – (Realistic) This is the one you have to be careful with. If people set goals that were always “realistic” imagine the lack of advancements we would have in technology and everyday life. You also have to make sure your goals are realistic from the standpoint of the laws of the universe and physics. For example, if it was April and you wanted to move into a million dollar mansion (that you are going to fully customize) in June and you have not even bought the land yet, it is obviously not be physically realistic.
 
T – (Time) It must be time certain. Without a timestamp it is a dream, not a goal.

Then Keep Reading!

 
We all are doing our best to equip our children to succeed in life’s journey with the tools we’ve been given. Now there is finally a resource that shows you how to give your kids the best chance to get ahead in life…

 

All of us who have influence over today’s youth are faced with these realities…

  • In just the past 20 years the average workweek jumped from 41 hours to 48. Becky Sweat www.gnmagazine.org
  • By the 1990s parents were spending 40 percent less time with their children than their parents did in the 1960s and 1970s. Becky Sweat www.gnmagazine.org
  • The media and entertainment industry is exposing kids to sex, drugs, and violence at record levels.

Had enough? Here are some more startling statistics…

  • A Child will see over 40,000 murders on television by the time he or she turns 18.”  www.truceteachers.org
  • The average teen has had sexual relations by the age of 16. www.mathematica-mpr.com
  • The average American adolescent will view nearly 14,000 sexual references per year. Linda Klepacki, R.N., M.P.H. www.family.org
  • Studies show that too much television viewing can have adverse affects, such as more violent and aggressive behavior, poor school performance, obesity, early sexual activity, and drug or alcohol use. Judith Graham, University of Maine

Despite our best efforts, the calm and stability that children crave is fractured by parents traveling, working late hours, and living with the constant demands of a crazy schedule.

Studies indicate that things will get much worse before they get better.

 

With all of this going on, it’s no wonder why parents are feeling overwhelmed with the challenge of raising their kids!

 
Here are some typical questions that parents want answers to…

  • How do I handle my screaming infant/toddler when I can’t even understand what it is that they want?
  • What can I do to stop my toddler from throwing and breaking things?
  • How can I get my pre-schooler to go to sleep at the appropriate time?
  • My four year old wants to negotiate everything. How do I get him to willfully obey?
  • My 9 year old is an angel at school but is often rude to his father and me at home. How do we break this before he becomes an out of control teen?
  • My daughter has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Some of our friends’ kids seem to be doing well with mood altering drugs but I’m not sure that’s the best option. Any suggestions?
  • I have trouble knowing whether my young teenager is telling the truth. How can I get them to want to “be real” with me?
  • How do I deal with my 14 year old son’s computer based obsession?
  • Is there a way to help my soon to graduate daughter become more responsible with money?
  • Can I mend a relationship with my adult child?

Welcome to Modern Day Slavery…
You’ve Been Conned!

 

Think You’re Not A Slave?
That’s Exactly What They Want!

 
Let me share a secret with you…
 
There’s a sneaky and largely unnoticed form of slavery that still prevails in this country today. It is so undercover that most people never realize that these chains are holding them down.
 
In Fact… it’s much more sinister because people actually like it, embrace it and willingly increase it, year after year, until it owns their soul.
 
Chances are you have been working for a master whose modern day bondage is deceptive, accepted and even encouraged by our own government and the media that captivates your attention every day!
 
Right now you are being pushed around and bullied by these people who want to make you think you have it all while they set you up for a financial meltdown… and you ask them to do it!
 

Make no mistake, if you are in DEBT, you are a Modern Day SLAVE!!

 
Can this be true?

“Debt is so ingrained into our culture that most Americans can’t even envision a car without a payment … a house without a mortgage … a student without a loan … and credit without a card. We’ve been sold debt with such repetition and with such fervor that most folks can’t conceive of what it would be like to have NO payments.” 
~ Dave Ramsey

 

Just let this sink in for a minute…
 
Imagine being alive in early Rome where, if you couldn’t repay your debt, you would literally become a slave to your creditor. He could sell you or even kill you! That won’t happen today but creditors can still make your life miserable!
 
What does this have to do with me you ask?
 
I have a good job, a house, a couple of nice cars, a wonderful marriage and great kids. We take 2 vacations a year, go to movies, sporting events, play video games and have lots of friends.
 

If you are financing ANY of this
you have been duped!


Consider yourself a poster child for the masters of modern day slavery


 

“A debt is a bet, an implicit wager that you’ll have money later to pay for all the crap you’re buying now that you can’t afford.” 
~ Carolyn Bigda and Megan Johnston

 

Some of you are just now realizing that the sneaky form of slavery is a big part of your lifestyle. The rest of you are in bondage that is not so subtle, especially if you…

  • Have a bit of discretionary income, but you can’t seem to get ahead because of your credit card debt.
  • Assuming the month brings no unexpected expenses, you are just able to make your monthly payments.
  • Have almost no discretionary income and are living paycheck to paycheck.
  • Fear that any mishap will do you in.
  • Need to start saving for your retirement or your kids’ college but just don’t seem to have the time or the discipline to do so.
  • Do not make enough to pay all of your minimum payments each month.
  • Want to protect your credit rating at all costs.
  • Are starting to feel as though bankruptcy may be your only option.

“Living in debt is nerve-wracking, insomnia-producing, and family-wrecking. Just don’t do it. There is nothing you can buy that feels as good as being in debt feels bad.”
~ Ben Stein

 

Here’s the scary part…

  • America is the richest country in the world, yet, ironically, we have the highest percentage of people living paycheck to paycheck. A recent study from ACNielsen revealed that about one in every four Americans say they don’t have any spare cash. Kiplinger
  • Approximately 35 million Americans pay only the required minimum “as low as 2 percent” of their balance each month. Frontline. Aired on PBS
  • Roughly 2 to 2.5 million Americans seek the help of a credit counselor each year, mostly to avoid bankruptcy. Georgetown University
  • The size of the total consumer debt grew nearly five times in size from 1980 ($355 billion) to 2001 ($1.7 trillion). Consumer debt in 2007 now stands at $2.5 trillion. Federal Reserve Statistics
  • The average household in 2007 carried nearly $8,500 in credit card debt. Federal Reserve Statistics
  • Britain’s personal debt is increasing by ~ £1 million every 5 minutes.CreditAction.org.uk

 
Dani knows first hand what it feels like to be enslaved by debt. A bad marriage left her over $35,000 in debt, destitute broke and living out of her car. She used these same War On Debt™ strategies to pay off her debt, start a business from the trunk of her car and become a millionaire in just 2 years!
 
Since then Dani has equipped thousands of her clients to use her simple War on Debt™ method to pay off millions of dollars in consumer debt and become truly financially free!

 

How is War On Debt™ different than all those other debt programs?

This program is NOT:

  • A loan consolidation plan
  • Credit counseling
  • Debt negotiation and settlement
  • A gimmick to pay someone else to pay down your debt
  • A “find a loophole in the law” scheme

In this proven debt elimination program you will discover:

  • How to pay off your debt WITHOUT making any more money than you do right now

“Paying for yesterday is perhaps the most important investment you can make in your future. Getting rid of those debts will buy you breathing room. It will buy a future of freedom. And it will bring your dreams “the things you really, really want” into reach.”
~ Elizabeth Warren & Amelia Warren Tyagi

Exercise is one of the best tools to help combat depression. Leading an active, physical lifestyle will help you to alleviate stress and increase your endorphin levels. The next time you feel sad, instead of wallowing in your depression, or engaging in negative activities like drinking alcohol or overeating, try going for a nice long walk or bike ride, and you will be amazed at how much better you feel.
 

 
 

About David Hanscom

A little about David Hanscom, he has been blessed to be a successful entrepreneur and part of the Entertainment Industry since 1990 and involved in independent business marketing & consulting since 1996.
 
He says…
 
I believe in the simple truth, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want” ~ Zig Ziglar.
 
I enjoy connecting with like-minded individuals from [imwb_cgt_cityName], [imwb_cgt_regionName] and across the country to share my experiences over the years – both good and bad – in the Entertainment Industry, Independent Business Marketing and most importantly, why I never gave up.
 

 
What are the keys to success in any business?
Take a moment to look at all of the successful people you know in [imwb_cgt_cityName], [imwb_cgt_regionName]. Regardless of their industry or background, they all share at least 3 common traits. First and foremost, they have a goal, a precise goal, and a vision. Next, they have a plan. They seek out the proper training in their respective fields and someone who can be a mentor to them. Finally, they work their plan because they understand it is an investment in themselves and their futures.
 
Think about this…The first 40 hours of any workweek of one’s career is strictly for survival. Beyond that, any hours put in are an investment in your future. Some say, “You survive between 9 and 5 and get rich between 7 and 2.”
 
You know, I sure wish I would have read these same words before I made all the mistakes I have made and spent all that money I have wasted!
 
After almost going completely broke, it did not take me long to realize that I need to find a better way. If I was going to be successful without having to take out a second mortgage on my home to finance it, I needed proper training and mentoring to avoid future costly mistakes. I needed to align myself with and learn from others who have already achieved the success I sought.
 
I knew that achieving my goals was possible but I needed help putting together my plan! The problem was where would I find the people who will help me?
 
Then the words rang in my ear like a beautiful song, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.”
 

 
Finally, A breakthrough…
Things really started to move in the direction I needed to be moving in when I discovered the power of an experienced mentor, someone who has already achieved success in their life, someone who is willing to teach you how to properly create your plan and market your business on the path of success.
 
My first mentor gave me the SECRET. He taught me to brand MYSELF first and the reason for and value of doing so. Then he taught me about Marketing; marketing on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and the list goes on. At first I just figured those places were for kids to chat and share pictures and videos. Then one day I watched one of those videos and it completely opened up my eyes to the power of social networks. You really can find TARGETED leads who are excellent prospects for your business using these platforms. I mean, lets face it, if you’re reading this right now, isn’t this the exact same way our paths crossed? See what I mean? Branding really does work!
 
My next Mentor showed me how to become a leader and understand the importance of helping others. Not just helping others, but helping others with no ulterior motive and completely from the heart. What really blew me away was he never asked me for a penny to obtain this knowledge!
 
It is now my mission to do the same, help others who are stuck where I once was. I still continue my daily educational efforts, my plan and my work. I still learn everyday from my mentors and even often times from my personal and professional relationships. It is a simple formula: The more I learn, The more I teach, The more I give, The more I receive.
 
OK, so who am I anyway and why would you even want to listen to any of this?
Well, I have a wonderful family and we live in beautiful Jacksonville, Florida. My friends will tell you I am carefree, fun loving, rather goofy, and love to make others laugh. They will also tell you I am committed to integrity, an honest day’s work and the success of all that I am blessed to be a part of. I was born in Portsmouth, Virginia and spent most of my life moving around the country (my Father was in the Navy for 30 years). I finally settled in Jacksonville in 1998 and began my quest to Discover my Ultimate Body, Balance and Business. In 2011 I joined the team from Neworld Coaching to help others, maybe even you, do the same!

Sometimes you just have to dare to risk public criticism!

I have made it my goal to help the Mobile DJ and Event Industry lose 1,000 pounds, including myself!
 
Several people have commented saying, “You don’t look like I need to lose weight”. Now, while I want to believe that most of the people who said that were only being nice, the fact of the matter is that I have worked hard for several years now trying to hide the truth about my weight.
 
Knowing that 40 is only a few years around the corner I have come to realize that if I don’t do something about my health and weight I will not be around to enjoy seeing my children get married or holding a grandchild in my arms. I won’t be able to live out the “golden years” I work so hard on now to have.
 
The first step is to overcome the fear of public criticism and admit I have a problem that needs to be fixed. I have decided to put together series of radical advertisements in hopes to accomplish 2 things:
 
1. To expose my weight issues to the world in a tactful and respectful way so that others will see that I truly do have some issues to work on. I do not in anyway want to offend anyone and will not say something about another person that I can’t say about myself.
 
2. To be a leader to others who may be in my very same position I am in and feel like they are alone.
 
The truth is you are not alone. 1 out of every 3 Mobile DJs is overweight or obese. The statistics are not too much better in the Event Industry as a whole. I hope that by taking the first step others will join me so that we can support and encourage one another to achieve our individual and collective goals together. Just by adding two or three people to your challenge will help you be accountable and increases your odds of success beyond belief.
 
I want to thank those who have already joined me and welcome any others that would like to be a part of the team. I can promise respect, love and support to every member of this team. Failure will not be an option and we will have a blast together!
