Making of a Slave 2018 (So Get a Coach!)

Some of us have read, Making of a Slave by Willie Lynch, while some of us know not of its existence.  If you have been fortunate enough to have taken the time to dissect that reading, maybe you’ll agree that many things have changed in our modern society as some things have undoubtedly remained the same.  It is my effort today to not glorify but to bring relevance to Willie Lynch’s piece of work.  It is my aim to share my thoughts while getting those who will read Making of a Slave 2016,17,18... an opportunity to explain, if not to another then to themselves, how we shall now overcome.

 

Part I:

If a people have the audacity to cause pain and degradation that is powerful enough to intimidate, infiltrate, subjugate and exterminate another group of people which then ultimately poisons the spirit, the minds, and even the souls of their offspring …in my opinion this is this is the new definition of madness.  In my opinion, this type of pain and degradation is one far greater than Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or any other “order” man has selected to label as some sort of mental dis-ease...

Every Day There is Something to Be Grateful For

Tonight while scanning through my Facebook page, I came across something that really stood out. Of course in this world of "posts" I usually find several things that make me do a double take.  Well, there has been nothing like this.  Let me tell you about it.  No, how about I share the actually posts:

*****Note, I deleted all the names involved except mine.
 

Initial Comment:

Something pretty amazing happened today. I have been working on my credit, saving and 

changing my attitude about money. We were released from work early and I said, I wonder if I 

can get a checking account.  On a whim, I drove straight to my bank. He pulled the report and 

instantly I was approved. I have not had a checking account in six years, but it sure feels good to 

know I'm on the right path financially.

How I Manifested a Husband, a Child, $50,000 and Saved My Home!

I remember when I first heard about the law of attraction it was like I had discovered the earth, wind and fire. It was just that fantastic to me. Fantastic can’t even describe the way I felt. It was as if the light had been off and then someone clicked on the light switch. The thing about it is, I knew I was in the dark. I knew I was in my own hell. I knew there was something else too...something better. I just didn’t know how to get to it. The great part about my misfortune is, I was trying to find the light and then the light found me.

I grew up in church. I knew there was GOD. What I was told though, that there was this GOD outside of me who controlled me and everything else around me. What I found unbelievable is that this GOD would be the author of good as well as bad. How? Impossible I always thought. To me, the image of my God was an image like my grandfather. He was kind. He was stern. He was loving. What I discovered OR shall I say, I remembered later is that the great energy I call God doesn’t move and shake just because I want him to or because anyone else want him to. There are laws that govern this world. Spiritual laws; these universal laws change not. They are set. Just like the law of gravity is forever and ever amen. So, are all these laws.

Getting reacquainted with what I had forgotten as a physical being was like food to me. I ate it. I slept it. I longed for it. I longed for everything spiritual. It wasn’t easy to totally embrace initially. As time progressed, I even began to accept the spiritual wisdom as I accepted the wisdom of my grandparents and their parents. I began to have faith. I began to believe that I controlled my destiny. I had to believe this in order to live my life without going mad. I figured if my destiny is in the hands of someone else, I mind as well die. I cannot live knowing this. That’s a scary thought. So, what did I do? I began to test what I had learned. According to the Word of God, I had every right to.

1 John 4:1–5King James Version (KJV)
4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.

I believed the true Word would not disappoint.  I used the techniques I used as a child (without knowing what I was doing at that time). I began to visualize. I started writing down what I desired. I started creating vision boards and holding desires in my mind until I drifted off to sleep. Guess what? One by one manifested. Now don’t get me wrong, I wont pretend that every moment and every second was filled with bliss. There were challenges like we face everyday. So, remember we are still living in a physical world as spiritual beings.

Yet I continued even during some long dark days. I posted picture of my husband and me ( I really wanted love); I posted pictures of the money I wanted (all of it is not in my account yet); I posted pictures of a jazz band that I was singing in; I posted my master’s degree hanging on the wall; I posted a baby; I posted a house my home being saved (it was almost foreclosed on); I posted an apartment that I needed due to my military duty.

Yes, one by one and I mean quickly manifested. At one point I was taking pictures down weekly because they had manifested. I asked for an apartment right? The picture of that apartment was a one bedroom. Now, check this out. Never once did I think about whether the apartment would comfortably hold me and my husband plus our things and our dogs. LOL! Yes, husband appeared and we were tightly loving one another in my one bed room apartment. Thank God it takes nine months to birth a baby. We three would have been tightly loving each other in that one bedroom. The lesson there is to really think about what you desire because some times it shows up just like you asked for it.

When we finally moved, the money came. It was discovered that I had been underpaid for three years. YES! That was $50,000 minus taxes. We had a ball. We paid off some debt and got ready for our baby girl. Isn’t that something?

What did I miss? If I missed anything, I’ll make it up when I manifest my knew desires.

Nine Questions to Ask When Evaluating Affiliate Networks

When you want to start an affiliate program it can be difficult to know how to choose the right affiliate network. Before you can even begin to choose, you really need to understand the right questions to ask when evaluating them. It's an important choice to make and migrating to a new system isn't always seamless. Here are nine questions to make the decision easier.

1) Does the network have an exclusivity clause?

This is something you absolutely do not want. These clauses can reach far into the distance after your first contract is up, and can affect advertising and marketing campaigns that you want to run with other networks even then. Immediately it affects you because you cannot be part of more than one affiliate program. You shouldn't allow a network to stranglehold you in your marketing efforts.

2) What is the commission structure?

Does the affiliate network allow you to choose your own structure? Can you have more than one level of affiliate, or tiers? Is it customizable so that you can create your own structure from top to bottom for affiliates as a group or even individually?

3) What is your budget in terms of time, expertise and money?

When you think of your budget, don't just think about dollars - think about the time you may need to invest, and whether you have the expertise to set things or you'll need to hire an expert.
 
* Time - Do you have the time to focus on creating, running and managing your affiliate program yourself? When you test out the network, do you understand how it works?

* Expertise - Are you going to be able to set up the network yourself, load in products, code for your affiliates, and so forth? Does the network offer any type of support with this or will you need to find your own expert?

* Money - Consider all fees associated with the network, such as hosting fees, monthly fees, cost shares, and anything with a dollar sign. Add up the worst-case scenario with any network instead of the best case.

Put all your findings into a spreadsheet so that you can understand the value of each individual network at a glance, including the cost of the expert help if you need it.

4) Does the network have a good reputation among affiliates?

If you're not sure what affiliate network to use, ask affiliates. What network do they prefer and which network are they most likely to use when signing up to promote your products? If there are high rates of click fraud going on, or payment issues, you want to know up front and you'll find these answers from people who already use the system as affiliate marketers.

5) Does the network offer any support?

If you call someone, will they answer? If you are okay without having a lot of support, you may be able to use a less expensive system. If you require answers to your phone calls, as well as some handholding, you may need to seek information about more expensive options. It's all in perception; some people are fine using open source platforms that offer no support other than group support. Other people aren't.

6) Does the network offer analytics and reports?

It's a great idea to be able to look at a wide variety of reports and analytics so that you can see which of your affiliates are doing super well, which are not, as well as your overall performance, clicks, views and so forth.

7) Does the network host your digital products?

Many affiliate networks do not actually host your products, or they have size limitations. Be sure to check on these factors. You may need to invest in another server to host your items and understand how to set that up so your customers can download your products.

8) Can you communicate with your affiliates easily?

Being able to communicate with your affiliates is an important because the more you can talk to them via email, webinars, and so forth, the more you will be able to offer them the tools they need to promote your products. Also, the more you can encourage them to sell, host contests and so forth.

9) Does the network use your list addresses to contact them?

Believe it or not - some affiliate networks will, if you're not careful, contact anyone you sell a product to, or who signs up for your email lists, or who signs up as an affiliate with their own marketing. If you don't want them to do this, read the fine print.

It's clear that you have a lot to think about when choosing the right affiliate network. But if you have clear idea from the start about what features you need in the network, you'll be able to make better choices.

How to Choose the Right Controversial Topic to Write About

One way to capture more attention on the internet is to write about a controversial topic. Controversial topics can encourage more audience participation, which can actually go viral - thus grabbing even more attention than you may be prepared for. It's a fine line to walk when using it to get more attention on social media. But, there are ways to choose controversial topics to make it work for your needs.

Know Your Audience

Every blog post starts with an understanding of your audience. That goes double for choosing to write about something controversial. You don't want to completely alienate your audience; you want to, ultimately, get them on board with you regarding the controversy. Take the time to survey your audience about various topics that could be controversial to make sure you really understand them.

Ensure That the Topic Is within Your Niche

Remember the point of your blog. You can have a lot of lofty goals for your blog, but ultimately it's to attract attention in order to capture leads that will convert into sales. Your controversial post should attract visitors within your niche. If the controversy surrounds something outside of your niche, there is no real point in doing the post.

Choose a Position Based on Real Feelings

Don't try to play both sides against the middle. You won't create the controversy you want, and the post will fall flat. Choose a topic in which you can clearly take the controversial side of the argument without question. The controversial side of an argument is always the one that fewer people choose. If you really believe in the opinion and are invested in the topic, it will help you move forward with your blog post.

Back Yourself Up with Facts

Try to find a lot of statistics to help back up your opinion. As someone once said, "You always have a right to your own opinion, but you don't have a right to your own facts." Using facts to back up your stance will go far in making your post readable, understandable, and logical, while still keeping the controversy that will propel your blog post to become viral.

Be Willing to Change Your Mind

When presenting your argument, invite others to try to change your mind with facts. This is a great way to lessen the blow of your alternative opinion about a topic within your niche. If you're not being one sided, but leaving some sides open for exploration in comments, you can keep the controversy going longer in the discussion portion of your blog post.

To recap, remember to keep the topic within your niche, take the minority view (but only if you really believe it), back yourself up with facts and statistics, show examples and allow an open dialogue to ensue after your blog post. Be willing to change your mind once there is discussion based on sound reasoning and facts.
