Create an Email List

An email list is an important part of your on-line business if you want to grow and get customers. I am working on creating one and I have already 3 subscribers. Yahoo!! I have set my goal on minimal 1000 for this year so only 997 to go.

So for the next couple days I am going to finish my newsletter which is also a template for the newsletters which I want to send out every month with new information about Essential Oils, how to use them, which you can use and for what, freebies and more. I am working on it for 3 days in a row now. Not only to find the right content but also because the program I use isn’t cooperating. I think I have to find a different approach, because starting over constantly is extremely frustrating.

I want to use this newsletter to build my list. The idea is that is the newsletter is interesting enough people would sign up for it but they would also be willing to share it with other people so they can sign up. And from that interest in essential oils and how to use them, how to find oils to replace common over-the-counter medicine I will find customers. I will take time to find these people but I will get there.

I have to bring out my name consistently so people know where to find me but more important want to find me.

Curious about my newsletter?? Send me your name and email and it will be on his way.


The last day.

Just one day left and then everything is back to “normal”. My husband and my oldest daughter’s boyfriend already started working this week, but school didn’t start yet. But it will start monday which means I have the house completely to myself again the whole day. I can do what ever I want to.

Not that it are going to be crazy things. I am too boring for that lol. But I can start concentrating again on my business and on my running/working-out-schedule without any disruption. No tv turned on which distracts me. No being social and having conversations. I know I don’t have to watch but I just don’t have enough willpower to keep myself away from that screen. And I love to have conversations with my daughters.

I will have a lot of extra hour though which gives me finally the change to finish my first newsletter and to finish that landing-page and get going to find these 1200 customers and to start working on loosing weight again and ……

Talking about my business: Anybody interested to learn more about essential oils and changing your life? 

Lavender as medicine?

Lavender is a well-known plant all over the world. Who doesn’t know the pictures of the endless lavender fields in France or has seen the fields themself. The sight of the fields are magnificent, the smell is relaxing and makes you so sleepy.

For centuries lavender is used in the aroma therapy but also as medicine. Dried lavender was placed between the clean sheets to keep a nice smell and leave the bugs out. When the sheets were placed on the beds the lovely smell helped to enhance sleep and relax. Doctors used the lavender herbs and oils for burns, cuts and abrasions.

A lot have changed since then and the chemical world had its uprise in our household and medicine cabinet or through prescriptions by doctors. The laundry is done with nice smelling soap, if you have a headache or have problems to sleep you just take a pill, there are plenty of over the counter or prescription ointments available for burns and cuts.

But nowadays there is also proof that all these chemicals together with an unhealthy lifestyle (unhealthy food, no exercise, stress, etc) are not very good for you on the long-term. People are developing all kind of lifelong problems like asthma, eczema, thyroid problems, are overweight, or many more problems.

Don’t misunderstand me. I am not against the modern products or medicines. But I believe that a lot of products can be replaced by natural products like herbs and essential oils or essential oils-infused products. We just have to learn how to live healthy again.

Young Living is selling a package with 11 oils (this month even 12) and Lavender is one of them. Or you can buy the bottle separately. But you should try it. Really. Diffuse it in your bedroom and I can almost guaranty you, you will sleep a lot better.

I normally grabbed that nice bottle with white pills if I had one of my headaches again (and I have them a lot due to a neck injury). I was addicted to them and over the years I had to take more and more to get the same effect. Now I use Lavender. I have a little container with coconut-oil and added Lavender and  sometimes also Peppermint to it. The Lavender relaxes my muscle and the Peppermint gives a great cooling feeling in my neck. And the amount of pills I take is a lot less, and I mean a lot less than a couple of years ago.

Really you should try it.

2017 is going to be ridiculously AMAZING

That’s going to be my motto for this year. And I have my goals ready for this month, for the next 90 days, for this year to make it happen.

I am going to do work very hard this year to start earning some money with my business. I am going to find my customers, I am going to find followers, I am going to find all the people who are interested in my Young Living products. I will start small and it will expand this year to way more.

I have 2 days booked for a market, and more will follow. I have written down a couple of new ideas to get people interested, so that is going to help to my success this year too.

I also made a start with a monthly newsletter, and according to my planning that would be send out to everyone next week.

If you are interested in my newsletter about the essential oils/blends and other products of Young Living, follow this link.

I am also going to make a killer landing-page, I am going to make killer ad’s, I am going to post on regular basis on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter so people will start to know me.

Watch out for me! I am on my way.

But that isn’t the only reason why this year will be amazing. My personal life will change too. Last year I already lost a lot of kilo’s (lbs). Beginning of December is was at 14kg (30lbs). Must admit that this holiday hasn’t been good to me. Or better, I have not been good to myself. Lack of excercise and no lack of too much food had brought it down to 11kg (25lbs). But that’s alright. I am going to loose another 10 kilo’s this year (plus 3). Not “much” I have to do: extend the distance of running from 5/6km 4 times a week to 8-10km AND keeping an eye on what I put in my mouth. I also participate in a UA challenge to run 1017km this year, so I will reach my goal for sure.

Second change this year concerns my horses. Instead of only feeding them, cleaning after them and keeping myself busy in the summer with the never-ending story of  repairing fence I will start exercising and training my horses too.

I am going to have so much fun this year.
