Hello Ellen
How are you doing these days. It's been quite a while. How all is well and even better than when we last communicated.

Hi Ellen,

We women are the care givers of the world. In today's time we are raised to believe that we can do everything (and most of us can) and we can be anything (which we can) we want to be. That puts us in a position of being care-giver, house keeper, bread winner, cook, taxi driver, peace keeper, pet trainer, laundress, organizer, bookkeeper, entertainer and goodness knows countless other titles. Throw in "business owner" and our list doubles especially if we have an outside "job" along with trying to run our business.

I know I fall into every category above and then many more. By the end of the day I'm trying to figure out if I can find just a few more hours to advertise one or the other of my businesses. Time to network and say "hi" to all my friends. Then by about 11 pm I'm thinking "I have to work for my client at 6 AM and I haven't taken 5 minutes for ME"

We burn out quickly and want to do it all (after all we have been told how many times "I am woman hear me roar"). My "roar" is turning into a "meow". I'm trying to learn new things, keep my client happy with extra little jobs to bring in more income (I only have ONE client, he's keeping to his promise of keeping me too busy to have any others that is for sure) work for my client a 40 hour "regularly scheduled" week, trying to balance the books (husband is again out of work), relaunch both my sites, gain new customers, keep the house clean enough so that the health department doesn't crash down my door, keep my son fed and my husband somewhat in an "up-beat" mood. Taking care of all gets, well, tiring.

So, as a woman, a business owner, and the caregiver of all, what do you do to "refresh"? When your days are so busy trying to "roar" what do you do to make yourself "purr" with contentment? What "short cuts" have you found to make your day a little easier?

Have a great evening

Right now there is a company in Pre-launch and it holds an awesome opportunity for you and your families.

I have attached the info below.

I just want to point out it is free to sign on during pre-launch.

What this does is secure your position in the company.

Once the launch happens October 25th there is a lot of money to be made.

You don't have to recruit, but if you do you will make some serious money.

You get paid on things you already do like, shop, eat, entertainment and most of all BUY GAS. Just a tidbit (you will be able to get a $100 gas card to EXXON, SHELL or CHEVRON for $40-$80 and get $25 - $50 in free gas every month). Visit the site and view the presentation.

You Are One Of The First to get high priority position!

Thanks for reading!!

And if you do decide to join, feel free to use this message to send to all of your friends and pass on the info! Just make sure you use your own links! :)
Ok!! Here is some more info I found while researching the company.
Please keep in mind that the reason there is so little info available RIGHT NOW is because the company is in a Soft-Launch. The ideas is to spread the word and give people a FREE position in their awesome matrix! After the soft-launch, the website will be fully loaded with all the details and they'll be in a Pre-launch position, giving us a chance to further investigate the opp and see if we want to stay in.
YOU SHOULD SHARE THIS OPP WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN NOW!! I copied and pasted this info below from an article I found about ABG.
Compensation Plan Potential

With Acquire’s compensation plan there are 5 ways to earn money. Quick note. The payplan will not be 100% set in stone until the company starts its official pre-launch on October 26th. So there could be some minor changes.

1. Fast Start Bonuses. 3 Levels Deep. ( $50, $20, $10)
2. Matching Bonuses. 6 Levels Deep. ( 100%, 30%, 20%, 10%, 10%, 10%)
3. 3X9 Forced Matrix Pay. ( Up to 6 levels without sponsoring )
4. Leadership Bonus.
5. Roll-Up Bonus.

So lets look at an example of someone who can sponsor people.

Assuming I personally sponsor 30 people during this soft launch that is going on right now they would receive $50 X 30 or $1500 on first level fast start bonuses.

If each of those 30 only average 3 people and fill their first level then I would receive an additioanal $20 X 90 or $1800 on my second level fast start bonuses.

If those 90 only average 2 people each then I would receive an additional $10 X 180 or $1800 on my third level fast start bonuses.

So if no other people are sponsored then I already have $5100 just in fast start bonuses.

I would also get a check every month that matches exactly what my personally sponsored people make in matrix pay. So if each of my personally sponsored people average only $250 in matrix pay then i would receive an additional $7500 per month and that would be every month. Even if I never sponsored another person.

So add $5100 to the $7500 and I have potentially made $12,600 my first full month in Acquire.

Best part is those numbers don’t include the matching bonuses on levels 2 thru 6 or any leadership bonuses that I would receive.

Are you starting to see the potential?

What if over 12 to 18 months I was able to personally sponsor 500 people and they each were able to earn only $250 per month in matrix earnings?

The first level matching bonus alone would be $125,000 per month.

ps. you don't have to put your social just put n/a..

Hi I wanted to stop by and introduce myself and let you know a little about me,

THIS IS NOT A SALES PITCH, I promise, I'm not trying to get you to join my down line (I don't have one). I'm just letting you know a little about me and my companies.

My name is Nikki. I run two online businesses. DeNapoli Services, an off-site admin service that caters to Ecommerce businesses. I am assembling a small team and will be relaunching this in November.

I also have Shop Denida, this is an online store that puts creative women in the spotlight. This is my way of giving back to all the women. I have run into a small stumble on this for lack of funding. I only have 100 products up in the site and about 400 more to put in there but need to purchase a larger shopping cart first. This will be happening in the next couple of weeks. You can help with this wonderful Idea by supporting it on Idea Blob. It takes a moment to sign up (they do not spam you) and vote for me. Thank you in advance for your support

My Idea

I'm always open to advice so if anyone has any on either business I would LOVE to hear it. I'm really good at taking constructive criticism.

Along with these two business I'm a mom of 2 and a wife and of course a woman. I have many pets that I love to take care of and actually have business ideas on that too. However I have learned that one business needs to take off and run before I can start to many more.

I'm a firm believer that hard work pays off. Shop Denida has only been live since September 1st and I already have a Google ranking (albeit only a 2 but a ranking none the less) and will be learning more about internet marketing in the near future. Once I have that mastered it will be one more service that DeNapoli Services will be able to offer.

Another thing I am doing with Shop Denida is spotlighting a woman's cause. The cause I'm currently doing is the Pink Ribbon Tour. they will be having their home coming on the 26th of October and I will be gathering donations for baskets. Visitors to the home coming can enter the drawing for $5 for a chance to win one of the baskets. This will raise money for Breast cancer awareness. If you have anything you would like to donate please contact me. Donations will give you the opportunity to get some advertisement in the community. I plan on giving full credit to anyone that donates an item or something. I already have some vacations, T-shirts, pictures and a few other things. The bigger the basket the more donations. I will also be doing a jar of pink jelly beans, for a buck people will be able to guess how many in the jar and be entered into a prize drawing for another prize.

I'm very excited to be a part of this group. I plan on doing lots of networking this weekend to get donations for the prizes for the home coming.

I hope you have a great weekend.
