I'm increasing my house savings goal 😳 Last night I was talking to my mom, and she asked me a very important question. She asked, "Are you going to use some of your cash savings for furnishings or upgrades?" Honestly, I never thought about this before. When I leave my apartment, I will have very little furniture, and I don't own a washer and dryer. It also got me thinking about house maintenance. I don't want to completely deplete my house savings because I would like to have some cash for house expenses, such as a broken water heater or a leaking roof. I also don't want to sacrifice the initial amount that I was going to use for the house purchase, the entire purchase. So, today I woke up more excited than ever. I created this new house savings tracker that will allow me to see my overall progress for my entire goal, all $400,000. I'm not going to lie, this is a gigantic goal. Some days I think to myself "That's going to take F-O-R-E-V-E-R." But then I wake up like I did today, excited for our future. There are so many reasons why I have decided to buy my dream house with cash. Being self-employed and not have to worry about a huge mortgage payment is one of them. But so is FREEDOM. The possibility of never having to worry about working again, if I decided not to. Being able to save more for retirement, and not worrying about my payments going to interest again. There are so many reasons, and my heart is truly at peace with my decision. Is this house savings tracker something you would like to see in the free resource library? It would be blank where you could customize the amounts🤷♀️ #savingsgoals
This week, I gave a healthy food presentation for the fourth and fifth grade class at my kids’ school! The title of my talk was “5 Things I Wish I Knew When I Was A Fifth Grader”. I handed out a corresponding document (link in bio) along with this phyonutrient checklist (link in bio) then dressed up as… …Porky the Pizza! And presented the following: #1: You Are What You Eat -The #1 thing not to eat because it’s what makes up your body: vegetable oil (show and tell and let them separate good oils from not, e.g. grass-fed butter vs. Crisco, margarine and "I can’t believe it’s not butter", avocado oil and olive oil vs vegetable oil, etc.). I had volunteers come up and separate the good oils/fats from the not-so-good. #2: Eat the Rainbow - I went shopping for reds, oranges, yellows, purples, greens, etc. then split the attendees into boys vs. girls & we came up together with a rainbow of foods based on the phytonutrient doc. #3: Not Everybody Is The Same - Right diet not for everybody I brought a gallon of milk, a loaf of bread, and a block of tofu, then explained what these do to some people’s bodies and explain elimination diet to figure out what’s best “for your tummy”. #4: Not All Health Food Is Good For You - Just because something is healthy doesn’t mean you can digest it. I passed around a jar of sprouted quinoa vs. regular bag of quinoa to explain how to make foods more digestible and also brought a bag of regular sugar and compared it to more nutrient-dense options like raw honey, stevia and blackstrap molasses. I used these examples to demonstrate nutrient density vs. digestibility. #5: Healthy Food Can Be Delicious - Healthy food can actually taste good. During the Q&A, I brought some of Jessa’s chocolate macaroons & pumpkin seed brittle to taste wonderful desserts that are also healthy for you. I then opened it up for Q&A & handed out @gsgrobyn’s book “Adventures Of Junk Food Dude” (link in bio) to the top

As you may already know, both @genaseesager and I work with a doctor that’s 100% online through @SteadyMD. How is it possible to have a doctor that we never see in person? 🤷🏼♂️ With modern technology, it’s easy! We can just send them a photo or video to help diagnose and prescribe when possible. They recently sent us a kit with several devices to help us stay connected to our doctor without having to drive to an office or hang out in a waiting room. The kit included handy items like a blood pressure cuff, an otoscope to send our doctor pictures of our ears/nose (very helpful with ear infections! …or if you’re like us and just want to see what the inside of your ear looks like! 😜), and a connected thermometer to automatically send a temp to the doctor. Sign up for SteadyMD by the end of February and get a 💥 FREE Wellness Kit 💥 after the first appointment with your doctor. 🙌🏼 Just click the link in my bio or mention my name when you sign up!
Как привлечь подписчиков? Листал картинки в поисках подходящей иллюстрации, и подумал, что эти пугливые американские олени будут в тему. Только без обид, мои читатели, я вас люблю! :) Я бы не хотел ничего менять, не будь мой Инстаграм помимо обычной галереи ещё и коммерческим средством продвижения фототуров. И тут встаёт вопрос: как увеличить аудиторию? Наверное, вы заметили: последние пару недель я активизировался, регулярно загружая новые картинки. Одной из целей было проверить теорию, что в этом случае подписчики начнут расти. Не сработало. У меня нет статистики о том, кто отписывается, но создаётся ощущение, что чуть-чуть не угадаешь с тематикой поста, и на одного подписавшегося может приходиться человек 15 отписавшихся. Вон они бегут по полям (листайте картинки в карусели). В связи с чем у меня есть несколько гипотез, как раскрутить Инстаграм легально: 1) надо снимать не просто хорошо, а архикруто, желательно, чтобы каждая работа тянула на высшую награду в самом престижном конкурсе! Вот тогда, может быть, новые читатели соизволят снизойти на тебя 2) возможно, самый действенный
