Don’t Die With The Music Still In You

Don’t die with the music still in you. We all get wrapped up with life that we forget that we have a purpose. Last year I watched a You Tube video by Dr Wayne Dyer, called The Shift. I recommend it. In it he said “Don’t Die With The Music Still In You”. I didn’t quite know what he meant at the time but now I am glad to say that I do. Find your purpose, find your “music”. Find your “Fulfilment” Before it is too late. I have now found what I am to do, I have found my purpose. I can see that fulfilment coming towards me. How to find your fulfilment? Well that is done by offering value, by helping others.

I am still working on it, this is a journey I am on. I am on this journey with lots of other people who have the same values. We have a community of like minded people. They are all willing to offer help. I have a mentor, a coach which is very important if you want to be successful in what ever you want to achieve.

I am looking for people like myself who in later life are looking for their purpose, looking to be fulfilled. I am doing this by building a successful online lifestyle business. Helping people to realise their own dream. This is way more than building an online business, it is about building a lifestyle, a lifestyle in the service of others.

About This Book

Spiritual Consciousness is nonfiction, it is a journey of one person’s journey from a young boy to adulthood. His experiences encounters many aspects of life and life beyond death. It encompasses family and friends, happiness and heartache.

Synaesthesia, What Is It?

From as far back as I can remember I have looked at days of the week in colours. I never questioned this, I just thought it was normal. I don’t see any writing in connection with the colours, I just see each day as a different colour. 

Days of week in colour

It wasn’t until very recently that I have found out that other people have this ability and not only do they see days as colours but also the months as well. I personally only see the days of the week in colours.

I also found this ability has a name and that is “Synaesthesia” I was just searching You Tube videos and came across a video of someone explaining that they saw the days and months as colours. You can imagine I was surprised to hear of this persons experiences. I started to dig deeper and began to learn more about this ability.W

What Causes Synaesthesia?

Synesthesia is a perceptual phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. People who report a lifelong history of such experiences are known as synesthetes.

Is Synesthesia a real thing?

In the psychological phenomenon known as “synesthesia,” individuals’ sensory systems are a bit more intertwined than usual. Some people, for example, report seeing colours when musical notes are played. New research tests how real these claims are.

Can You Teach Yourself Synesthesia

Conventional wisdom says that synesthesia is innate — you’re either born with the condition or you’re not, end of story. … A group of psychologists at the University of Amsterdam have been testing whether synesthesia might, actually, be learned.

Who has synesthesia?

All of these artists—along with Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Mary J. Blige, Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, and more—have synesthesia, a condition in which a person’s senses are joined. They hear a certain timbre or musical note and see a colour, or smell a perfume and hear a sound, or see a word and taste a flavour.

Can you see sound?

Scientists Say We Can See Sound. Turning conventional neuroscience on its head, new research suggests the human visual system processes sound and helps us see. … The textbook rewrite: The brain can, if it must, directly use sound to see and light to hear.

“Why Having Quality Content On Your Website Is Important”

The content on your website is the most important part of each page. Content writing, blog writing, and product descriptions drive the way that people search for and find your company. You need a quality website that is easy to read, contains all the information a customer needs, and helps the customer make a conclusion about buying your product or service. You will learn how to write a blog, how to write education articles, and how to write product descriptions below. 

1. How To Write A Blog

Antique Typewriter

You need to know how to write a blog because this is the easiest way for you to work with the public. People who frequent your site will read the blog because they want to get information about your company, about your products, and interact with you. Blog posts will garner many comments, and you can use those comments to offer customer care that your customer base wants. Most people who have questions about your site will send in emails, and you could answer those questions in a blog post.

Learn how to write a blog so that you can speak to the public directly. You should learn how to write in an informal style that will give people immediate information, and you might want to learn a few different formats that would be appealing to your customer base. 

You could host an AMA where the Ask Me Anything crowd sends you questions. answering questions for the AMA is a lot of fun, and you get to know your customer base as they are learning tidbits about you. You should try to write one of these posts a month so that you can interact with the public.

You could write blog posts about how you use your company’s products, or you could write blog posts about current events. These news stories tell the public your thoughts on what is going on in the news, and you can explain the position that your company has taken on all these issues. 

2. Product Descriptions

The word description

Product descriptions are very helpful because they show your customers everything they need to know about any product that you sell. The product descriptions that you write for your site lay out everything that the product does, how it was made, and why this product is useful. You must write something that helps explain why the product soars above other products on the market, and you might prefer to show how your product compares to others.

A bit of research goes into each of the products that you write up, but you must create full charts that show how your product has specifications that compare to others. Using these specifications to give the best information helps you write something that will turn up on Internet searches, and you must read other sites to see how they have written their descriptions. 

3. Educational Text 

Education text should be written for your company because you must tell the public what is going on in the world, why your company is helpful, and where your products fit in. It is simple for you to write an educational text when you talk specifically about what your company does for the customer. You must tell the customer why your work is priced in the way that it is, and you must talk about specific examples that prove your point. 

The educational text that you write should be specific to a product line or your company as a whole. You should title your articles in a way that will make them easy to find, and you should focus on content writing that tells people benefits. Content writing that you have done as a cast study shows how your product performs, and content writing for your customers should answer as many questions as possible.

4. Blog Writing Vs. Content Writing

You need both blog writing and content writing. Blog writing is needed so that you can speak naturally to the public. You learn how to write a blog purely because you would like to write in the casual style. Blog writing could help people relate to you, but content that you have written in the formal style will begin to explain how your company fills a gap in the market. 

5. Conclusion

The best thing that you can do is learn how to write in both styles to fill up your website. A quality website that you have written should appeal to all customers at all times.

How To Fill Out A (W-8BEN) Form

This video is a few years old now but I believe it is still relevant.

If you are operating any online business which is based in the USA then you are liable to pay USA tax unless your country of residency has a Tax Treaty Agreement in which case you can use the W-8BEN form which will exempt you from paying USA Tax. You will however most likely be obliged to pay tax on your earnings in your own country.

“Lifestyle Business Ideas For The Over 50’s And Retirees”

Turning 50 or retiring does not mean that your life is restricted to watching soap operas and sitcoms all day. With the modern inventions of the internet and smartphone technology, it is now easier than ever to launch a business of your own right from the comfort of your home. Creating your own lifestyle business provides both freedom and flexibility while allowing you to generate an additional income to enjoy during your golden years. 

What is a Lifestyle Business?

A lifestyle business is a type of business that is often defined by the individual who is in charge. Whether you enjoy traveling for work, working from home, or even spending time driving across the country to meet with clients, lifestyle businesses are optimal for flexibility and time freedom. Lifestyle businesses can include affiliate marketing, selling items or handmade products online, or even creating a dropshipping business that can be managed with your computer or even your smartphone while on-the-go. Choosing to launch your own lifestyle business with the business models that work best for you is possible with a bit of creativity, determination, and the willpower to move forward with your plans. 

Affiliate Marketing

One of the simplest business models to learn more about if you are over 50 or just retired includes affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is ideal for individuals who are not interested in raising capital or taking out large loans to generate a passive income for themselves. With an affiliate marketing company, you have complete control over how you promote a business, service, or even a specific product depending on the niche or market you are most interested in. 

Affiliate marketers are able to earn an income by generating leads and sales while also recruiting others to support the affiliate marketing program they have chosen. Before choosing an affiliate marketing program that is right for you, be sure to conduct thorough research to determine the best choice for you based on your current following and the type of industry you prefer to enter most.

Selling on eBay

While there are thousands of popular websites to shop for items online today, eBay is still a giant source for those who are searching for unique, one-of-a-kind, and even collectible items. One of the easiest business models to learn is selling on eBay (or another website such as Amazon or Etsy). Selling your items simply requires high-quality photos, vivid descriptions, and relevant keywords. Learning the basics of SEO, or search engine optimization, and how to better list or promote your items can drastically increase your chances of generating a sale and making money.

Before opening an online shop to sell your items or handmade products, it is important to research the market and niche you are most interested in. How saturated is the market? Is it going to be easy to outperform your potential competition? How do your products and their prices stand out from others who are already working successfully in the industry? How do you intend to reach prospective customers? 

Dropshipping 

Not all business models are the same, especially for those who are interested in dropshipping. Lifestyle businesses are often much more relaxing than managing an entire company in a corporate setting on your own. While some business models require more work and effort from the individual who is profiting with the business, dropshipping is much more simple and eliminates the guesswork that is often found in traditional corporations and office settings.

Owning your own dropshipping company is a great way to create a passive income stream without manually shipping and tracking inventory each time you make a sale. Dropshipping companies range from traditional household items to clothing, collectibles, and extremely unique niche products. With a dropshipping website of your own, promote products that are stored in a warehouse while third-party works to pack, ship, track, and manage the inventory at all times. Dropshipping lifestyle businesses are ideal for those who are interested in selling items online, but are unwilling or incapable of doing so on their own due to a lack of space or desire. 

With a dropshipping business, each time you make a sale you receive a percentage of the sale price, depending on your set markup and the overall profit margin of the item itself. With many dropshipping services and companies, there is little to no cost to get started with your own business aside from registering your own domain name and choosing a host for your website.

Blogging/Vlogging

Launching lifestyle businesses with your own website or a vlog with a community such as YouTube or Vimeo is a great way to generate a passive income while dabbling in your favorite hobbies and activities. Consider your favorite hobbies, passions, and pastimes and what brings you the most joy each day. Sharing information, unique content, and even tutorials with others who are interested in similar activities is a great way to build an audience with a blog or vlog. 

Create an official website along with social media pages to build an online presence for your brand or for the type of lifestyle businesses you envision yourself running. Update your social media consistently, sharing links from your blog and YouTube channel to drive traffic while garnering the interest of potential followers or customers. Blog at least two times each week to keep content fresh and visitors coming back for more. Engage and communicate with those who follow you on social media or those who subscribe to your newsletter to create a sense of community among your users. Implement and host third-party ads or reach out to work with sponsors once your following and traffic have flourished to begin generating income. 

Comparing the business models of different lifestyle businesses can help you find a path that is right for you and the lifestyle you want to lead. By researching and comparing various business models along with the requirements for each type of lifestyle business you are interested in, choose a route that works best with the future you envision for yourself and your family.
