Publishing my First Book!! Excited!!



I am so excited that my first book is going to be ready in the next month to six weeks!!  I have worked on it for 8 years so this is a big accomplishment.

Why did it take that long?  Resistance!

First of all I didn’t even want to write it.  It is about healing crisis’ that happened in the past that I didn’t want to put any more energy into.  They were resolved and I was complete with the outcome.  The Universe had other plans because the things that happened to me and how I healed them could help someone else do the same with a healing crisis they might be in.  So I woke up one morning and most of the first chapter was written in my head.

I think it is important to know that one of the biggest things that gets in the way of people completing books is vulnerability.  What are people going to think about what I have to say?  Does anyone care what I have to say? What will they think of me?  Those questions cause instant shut down.  I know because I asked them myself and I shut down.   Parts of my book are very personal.  There are things in there that no one knows.  I get real about my feelings.

Getting real and authentic takes courage because some of the questions above might not have the answers you are looking for.  Some people might not care.  Some might questions what you wrote. Some might even think your are crazy, but you know what? It doesn’t matter!  Those aren’t the people you are writing for, you are writing for those who need to hear what you have to say.  We never know when something we say might change someone’s life!

I was afraid of all those things.  I stopped writing this book several times because of my fear.  I still wonder if people will think I am crazy, but it isn’t stopping me.  I wonder if people will care, all though the response from my posts about the book on Facebook say they do care.  I just hope that one line, one paragraph, one chapter or the whole book will impact just a few people. That will make the effort I put in writing and the courage it is taking to put it one in the world, worth it.

If you have always thought about writing a book but never quite get to it do it now!  There is a reason you have thought about it in the first place.  You have something to say that no one else can say and the world needs your voice.

The cover of my book is showed at the top of this post.  It is called Empowered Health and Wellness; Awakening the Inner Physician.

This book is an invitation to join me on my personal wellness journey,as well as for me to share alternative techniques for achieving wellness,with the hope that it will help you expand your ideas around health and wellness. Most of the issues that I transformed were things doctors told me would not get better.  I write to support you to engage your inner healing wisdom, which I call, your Inner Physician. This book is an intimate look at my personal journey, so it is vulnerable, juicy and raw at times. I have been transparent to give you an inside view into my illnesses and the struggles I encountered in the process, in hopes that it will inspire your own journey. I have had what I would call bizarre and unusual healing experiences that resulted in miracles that occurred on many levels.  I want to say early in this book that I am using the words health and wellness as much as possible rather than the word “healing” because that word suggests that something is wrong that needs to be fixed.  If we believe we must heal something we are always in a state of fixing, rather than a state of perfection. If on the other hand we focus on wellness that is the journey we will take. Also healing might not mean recovering from something,instead gaining insight and evolving from your experience might be the healing.

This blog post story, which has had over 2500 hits since I wrote it and another blog post that had over 6000 hits are stories in the book.  I have re-written them in more detail but this will give you an idea.


If you would like more information about getting a copy of  the book please email me at magnetickatelyn@gmail.com for details.

Have you ever wanted to write a book?  What keeps you from doing it?  If you have written one, what were your challenges?  Please add them to the comments.  I would love to hear from you.

My Business Grew by 181 People in the Month of March!

March was a pivotal month for my It Works Business.  My team increased by 181 people, 77 distributors and 104 customers and my income more than doubled.  This growth is reflective of where this business is going but also what I have come into alignment with.

What I mean by this is that if I wasn’t in alignment and open for this kind of growth to occur it wouldn’t have happened.  We has the same promotion last year and I only added about 12 people to my team so it was less about the promotion and more about where I am in my creation process.  My vision is to build a strong, successful team in It Works Marketing and become financially free.  I finally believe it is possible and am seeing the fruits of my intention setting and clearing.

It Works Marketing is poised to be at the top of the Network Marketing field and we have not reached the tipping point yet so it is a great time to get involved.  Not only do we have first to market products that are changing peoples health but we also have state of the art marketing tools and training program, a hybrid compensation program, international expansion plans, riding on the trend of anti-aging and health and wellness and a founding team that has integrity and team spirit.

The Tipping Point is defined as the moment of critical mass, the threshold, and the boiling point. It is the point when everyday things reach epidemic proportions. The moment they take off, when they reach their critical mass, is the Tipping Point. The Tipping Point is one dramatic moment in an epidemic when everything can change all at once.  After the tipping point a business becomes a household word and those involved before this happens have great potential of reaping huge rewards.

It Works Marketing is a company on the threshhold of reaching the tipping point.  You have often heard of people who were in on a business before the reached momentum/tipping point who become financially free because they were in the right place at the right time.  People in It Works or joining now, will be part of the momentum that carries the company over the tipping point and are in the right place at the right time.

If you dream of being financially free you will want to check out this business opportunity at http://www.inchlossdiva.com.  Here is a video that might help as well: http://www.youtube.com/itworksmkt#p/a/u/1/WawikW0ehLw  or contact me at hummingbird@usfamily.net

Creating Your Own Economy

Why would anyone want to start a home based business

Here is what Paul Zane Pilzer, Author and Nobel Prize Winning Economist says about network marketing/home-based business:

“Home-based businesses are one of the fastest-growing segments of our economy and that trend will only continue, as the age of the corporation, which began barely a century ago, now gives way to the age of the entrepreneur.”

With that said I predict that in the future we will be buying from each other and the corporation will be a thing of the past.  We will be in charge of the economy and everyone will have the potential to be financially free. The business model of network marketing also known as MLM and direct marketing is the most viable vehicle for that to happen.  Currently it is one of the only ways to purchase cutting edge technology and cutting edge products for personal use.

Why does it work for me?

Like most people I have dreams of things I want to do when I get more time.  I have always thought of retiring early so I could do those things that I feel I am here to do  as part of my purpose, like my visionary art.  I remember waking up several years ago and realizing that at the rate I was going, working for someone else, I would never be able to retire!  That is how it is when we exchange time for money, we build someone else’s dream and never get around to our own.

The day that I had my realization I decided I needed to find ways to build residual income that would keep coming even when I wasn’t working and after I quit working.  This is when I started looking into network marketing.  Like most people I was skeptical at first.  I tried several business opportunities before I found one that was a fit.  It is a first to market product, with cutting edge sales tools and training, with a fabulous comp plan in a company that has not yet reached it’s tipping point. To me that is a recipe for success

When I was introduced to It Works in May 2008 I was involved in three other business opportunities with my very dear friends Che Lisa and Tim. I love the direct marketing/ mlm/network marketing business model because it is the only real way for the average person to become financially free. This is one way to create you own economy.

Che called me and told me about a body patch that was made with all natural herbs, essential oils, minerals and homeopathics and when it was applied to the body it caused people to lose inches in 45 minutes. I signed up without trying the product because I could see the vision the beauty of selling a first-to-market product.  When I got my business builders kit the following week and tried the Ultimate Body Applicator I lost 8 1/4 with the first one.  I love our products but do have my favorites.  I am in love with the New You 3.0, Ultimate Body Applicator, The Defining Gel, Greens and the Ultimate Thermofit and I have seen hundreds of people’s lives change using these products.  Learn about the Ultimate Body Applicator.

It was important to us to see corporate and meet the owners so Che, Tim, myself and 5 other new distributors drove to Michigan in June 2008 to meet the owners.  We had been in the business about six weeks and Pam and Mark and Debbie and everyone at corporate rolled out the red carpet for us, treated us like family and even featured on the first webinar It Works did.  I was sold on It Works! and dropped out of the other business opportunities I was involved in. This welcoming, family atmosphere continues today as we expand internationally. It works is now available in the US, Canada, the UK and Australia.

I feel that Network Marketing/MLM/Direct Marketing is the best personal growth workshop on the planet because if my business isn’t expanding and growing there is something in me that is out of alignment with my dream. When I use this approach and sift myself my business shifts immediately.  I have used this to develop personally as I grow and expand my business and support my team.  It has been exciting for me to watch It Works! grow along side me. Article by Robert Kiyosaki on Network Marketing.

Every March the CEO, Mark Pentecost, pulls out all the stops to support everyone to take their business to a whole new level.  For the month of March this year it is really crazy because he dropped the cost of the business builders kit to  $99. The crazy part is you can make $240 just by selling the product that is included in the kit.  Not only that but with all the bonuses available this month you can set the foundation to grow an amazingly successful business.  You get $200 in free product just for bring in 4 customers, for example, and that is just the beginning.  That is why the $99 kit is crazy!  When I joined the company I paid $299 and I have built a successful business!  Details about the $99 kit.

My advice to anyone who is building any kind of home based business for yourself is to never give up, be patient, visualize success and be persistent.  You never know who is around the next corner and things can change in an instant! I wish everyone the success they dream of no matter what you choose to do to create your own economy.

“If I were start my entrepreneurial career all over again, I would start with a network marketing or direct sales business, not for the money but for the real-world business training I could receive”  –Robert Kiyosaki, Success From Home Magazine

God! I Hate Exercise!

I know it is important to exercise but it isn’t one of my favorite things to do. There have been many New Years Resolutions that I have made about exercising more, and all of them have been broken.

I think my disdain for exercise started in grade school when I played softball. I wasn’t very good and I didn’t get picked to play very often. Sitting on the sidelines watching wasn’t much exercise and getting booed for dropping the ball wasn’t fun either. I couldn’t run very well, I couldn’t throw and once in a while I was able to catch a fly ball. I wasn’t the coaches dream player. I got winded running the 30 yard dash for heaven sakes! I played softball again with a work league about 15 years ago and I was still not very good so I kept my day job.

My parents never pushed sports or exercise so I never developed a habit that would carry into adulthood. I think it is important for parents to encourage their children to find some form of exercise that they enjoy so they form habits early. It is really hard to start an exercise ritual when you are an adult.

In High School I was able to get out of swimming during gym class because I had my period. The teacher never questioned me when I told them I had my period every week. I didn’t want to be naked in the locker room to change into my bathing suit, I didn’t want to have all my make-up wash off to reveal my not so flawless complexion and what teenage girl wants to have a bad hair day! There was no way I was going to go swimming!

I joined an aerobics class at a fitness club years ago and I think I lasted 6 months. I remember how hard it was in the first couple of weeks trying to keep up with the instructor, watching what everyone else was doing, while doing something completely different myself and feeling awkward. I felt like it was more of a fashion show than a workout. Those were the days of black spandex and head bands with cool oversized tea shirts with cute graphics on them. I just remember feeling fat and inflexible and not very fashionable. I got bored before I got to fabulous.

I have done yoga alone to a video playing in my television with Rodney Yee. It was easy but I think I might have lasted 3 months before I got bored. Nothing against Rodney, I just don’t like to do yoga alone. I tried a few other videos and developed a pretty good practice for about 6 months until I went on vacation and when I got back I just couldn’t get started again. I have friends that do yoga and encourage me to do it too, but still I resist.

The most fun I have had exercises is the summer I hiked up and down the cliffs along the St. Croix River. It didn’t seem like exercise but more like exploring. I think there were about 50 stairs to descend and climb to get to the park where I would walk. I went there 5 times a week, just to be by the river, in nature and with the eagles and animals. By the end of the summer my body was in the best shape it had ever been in and I feel like I was exercising.

I know that most of the weight gain, problems of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and early aging occurs due to lack of exercise. I also know I have a long life ahead of me and I want to take a healthy body into my wisdom years. I have read the scientific studies and research across the world that have conclusively proved that regular physical activity leads to a higher life expectancy and better quality of life by reducing weight and managing body fat.

From what I have read, the greatest overall health benefits, experts recommend that you do 20 to 30 minutes of aerobic activity three or more times a week and some type of muscle strengthening activity and stretching at least twice a week. That doesn’t seem like too much to ask. My body has served me well and it deserves to be taken care of and it is craving the thing I hate the most. No not chocolate! I love chocolate! No, my body craves exercise! Knowing how important exercise is to my body I am determined to overcome my exercise phobia this year, but I am not, I repeat, NOT making a New Years Resolution about it!
