Ellaville Glossary of Success

Ellaville Glossary of Success If you are considering starting your first MLM business in Ellaville, is it helpful to understand basic direct selling jargon.

Affiliate: A participant in a network marketing company. Ellaville affiliates are also called consultants, independent distributors, associates, and representatives.

Auto-Ship: An automatic shipment (usually monthly) of products such as Xocai Xe Energy Drink. Auto-ship benefits the Ellaville customer who doesn’t have to remember to place a new order every month.

Auto-ship makes it unnecessary for the Ellaville distributor to store a lot of inventory in their home.

Compensation Plan: The structure which determines how distributors are paid from their own sales and earn residual income from the sales of the distributors in their downline.

Downline: The people who make up your MLM network. This includes Ellaville entrepreneurs you recruited or sponsored, (your frontline) and the distributors recruited by the people in your frontline, and so on down the line.

A distributor’s downline is arranged vertically by legs and horizontally by levels. Your frontline is the first level. All the recruits under one person in your frontline is a leg.

Fast Start Bonus: A one-time compensation designed to reward new Ellaville Xocai Xe distributors who start expanding their home and online businesses shortly after joining.

Network Marketing: Any business which allows participants to sell products such as Xocai Xe or services directly to customers. Most direct marketing companies in Ellaville also allow participants or distributors, to recruit additional distributors. Network marketing is also called multi-level marketing (MLM), referral marketing, and direct selling.

Ellaville distributors earn income from their own sales and also from the sales of their recruits.

Residual Income: Repeating payments earned from work done one time. Some examples: a writer in Ellaville who receives royalties on an e-book sold on an online marketplace. A successful Ellaville investor who receives stock dividends. Network Marketing is one of the best ways to create residual income streams in Ellaville without having to invest a lot of money up front.

The Right Bedtime Snack Can Help Ellaville Kids Fall Asleep

The Right Bedtime Snack Can Help Ellaville Kids Fall Asleep

Andersonville parents know that sleep is important for their child’s health. If your Ellaville child has a hard time falling asleep, you may want to try a bedtime snack. Well-chosen evening snacks can help ease the transition to sleep.

Eating too much before bedtime is never a good idea for anyone, but a small snack may be just the ticket to dreamland for little ones in Andersonville. Foods containing the amino acid tryptophan are a natural sleep aid, especially if they are coupled with carbohydrates, which help make tryptophan more available to the brain.

Bedtime foods you can purchase at your local Ellaville grocer include soy milk, dairy products, nuts, seeds, and legumes, such as lentils or chick peas. These foods coupled with a healthy carbohydrate make the perfect bedtime snack. Your Ellaville kiddos will be visiting the sandman before you know it.

Try a glass of soy milk with a few whole grain crackers or string cheese and apple slices. Low-fat cottage cheese with pineapple helps my munchkins fall asleep.

I am a local Xocai Xe Energy Drink representative and a children’s health advocate. If you live in Oglethorpe, Andersonville, or Ellaville and would like to learn more about children’s health contact me today!

This ranking is current; this ranking is credible; this ranking is Incredible!

News from Ellaville Georgia: BBB Ranking For MXI Corp.: ‘A’ Jeanette Brooks, President Andrew Brooks, COO

Relax In Ellaville Over a Steamy Cup of Healthy Cocoa

Oglethorpe MLM Secrets There is something special about savoring a steamy cup of cocoa here in Ellaville. For centuries, Europeans have enjoyed afternoon tea, a ritual that allowed them to relax and spend a few minutes with a friend or family member. You can begin your own tradition of taking a daily ‘hot cocoa‘ break, a time when you slow down and recharge your batteries.

Your hot cocoa break in Ellaville does not have to weigh you down with fat and high-fructose corn syrup. Xocai Sipping Xocolate tastes too indulgent to be good for you, but it contains the antioxidants and flavonoids found in the other super-healthy Ideal Xocai chocolate products.

Your cocoa break can also be a Oglethorpe ‘health break,’ when you enjoy a drink that boosts your immune system, helps protect you from chronic diseases, and energizes your body and mind.

When would be a good time for you to enjoy Xocai Sipping Xocolate? In the morning when you are going through your emails? While reading the Oglethorpe Sunday paper? When you are snuggling up with a child or grandchild to share a story or movie? While driving to your Ideal office on cold winter mornings?

Perhaps you are burned out on Oglethorpe coffee. Try Xocai Sipping Xocolate for a healthy change of flavor. Xocai Xocolate is the ‘espresso’ of premium hot cocoa.

In our complex, fast-paced world, a daily hot cocoa break is one of life’s simple pleasures. Xocai President Jeanette L. Brooks’ mission is also simple; to promote good health, well-being, and the opportunity for an abundant life through Xocai antioxidant chocolate.

I share Jeanette’s philosophy. If the Xocai message resonates with you, let’s get together. We can talk while sipping the healthiest cocoa in Georgia.

Ellaville Kids and Bug Bite Dangers

Ellaville Kids and Bug Bite Dangers Healthy Ellaville kids love to play outdoors, but Georgia parents need to be aware of a potential danger: bug bites. The ability to tell a harmful bug bite from a benign one is essential to keeping your active Ellaville child safe.

Flea bites are common in Andersonville, Ellaville, and Ideal. They appear as a rash on a child’s skin with individual raised spots that might have a puncture in the center. Ellaville children will usually complain of itchy skin if they have been bitten by fleas.

Bee and wasp stings, also common in the Oglethorpe area, can be differentiated by the number of stings. Bees only sting once, lose their stinger and then die, whereas wasps (as well as hornets and yellow jackets) can sting multiple times. Georgia homes often harbor wasp nests under the eaves.

The sting of a fire ant will usually cause Oglethorpe kids to have a red hive that may develop into a itchy, pus-filled lesion. Chiggers, which are tiny arachnids, cause multiple itchy red welts on kids’ skin. Check your local Ellaville drugstore for itch-relief products and watch the welts for signs of infection.

Ticks bites will cause an uncomfortable redness on your Oglethorpe child’s skin and may even swell. Since ticks can carry harmful diseases, you should contact your Ellaville area pediatrician if you child has had a tick bite.

My name is Derrick Winkel and children’s health is very important to me. I sell a fantastic nutritional product for Ellaville families. Call me at 949 412-1001 if you would like more information. Thanks for visiting my Ellaville children’s health blog!

Rethinking Oglethorpe Schools

Rethinking Oglethorpe Schools Welcome to today’s Healthy Oglethorpe Children blog. This site is dedicated to promoting children’s health in the Oglethorpe area.

Unless you have been living in a cave for the last 20 years, you have heard about the obesity epidemic among U.S. children.

There are many worthwhile programs in the Oglethorpe community that promote healthy eating habits and increased exercise for our youngest residents. I came across an interesting article last week that focused on how the design of schools can affect children’s health in general and obesity rates in particular.

‘Many schools were planned without thought given to how students can safely walk or ride their bikes to school. Playgrounds have been cut from budgets. An overemphasis on competitive sports has created a disproportionate amount of funding going to a select group of high profile sports, while minimizing the opportunities for the majority of students who desperately need exercise.’ Joel K. Sims, AIA, “Designing Schools To Fight Childhood Obesity,” School Designer, May 2007, http://www.schooldesigner.com/Articles/Designing-Schools-to-Fight-Childhood-Obesity-Part-1.asp, accessed on May 16, 2011

Here are some suggestions for making schools fitness-friendly:

  • Incorporate features of professional health clubs
  • Partner with community fitness centers to create multi-use facilities
  • Combine electronic entertainment and exercise
  • Incorporate movement into lesson plans

As we plan for new and renovated Oglethorpe schools, let’s take our children’s fitness into consideration. As Oglethorpe parents and educators, we can also promote lesson plans that incorporate movement. I also believe we need to look at how our tax dollars are spent. Do competitive sports programs in Georgia receive more than their fair share of available funds? Could we better use this money to provide exercise opportunities for all Oglethorpe children?

I encourage you to raise awareness of these issues in your Georgia city. The only thing that will spur change is if parents, educators, and government leaders work together to lower the obesity rates in our Georgia communities.

Jeanette Brooks’ Million-Dollar Chocolate Company

Ellaville Home-Based Business Almost anyone in Ellaville can take raw cacao, ferment it, alkalize it, emulsify it, add a generous amount of sugar and milk and concoct a great-tasting chocolate treat. (It helps, of course, if you live in Cote d’Ivoire and grow cacao trees.)

In fact, the billion-dollar chocolate market is built on hundreds of chocolate producers and millions of chocolate consumers like almost everyone I know in Oglethorpe.

Unfortunately, traditional chocolate like the Ellaville offerings of Cadbury, Godiva, Nestle’s, and Hershey’s is full of bad stuff for your body. The Oglethorpe men, women and children who are popping M&Ms like popcorn are not doing themselves a favor.

The saturated fat content of a 12 ounce solid chocolate Easter bunny will eventually give that bunny a heart attack.

Jeanette L. Brooks’ Xocai antioxidant chocolate is unique.

Xocai healthy chocolate with acai berries actually improves your health. Yes, you heard that right; it improves your health. Xocai dark chocolate products go from raw cacao beans to delicious chocolate through a patented cold-processing method that preserves the natural antioxidants in cacao and does not require vast amounts of refined sugar to make it taste good.

Xocai President Jeanette L. Brooks has built a thriving company that continued to grow at a steady clip as other Ideal companies closed their doors.

With Jeanette’s Xocai healthy chocolate, Ellaville chocolate lovers get nature’s top two sources of antioxidants, cacao and acai. With the Ellaville Xocai business opportunity, Andersonville entrepreneurs can enhance their income as much as they enhance their health.

It doesn’t take a genius to see the possibilities with a Oglethorpe antioxidant chocolate business. There is a Xocai product for every kind of chocoholic–cookie lovers, protein drink users, chocolate candy nibblers, energy drink fans, and hot cocoa sippers.

If you want to try a Xocai Omega Square, a Xocai Powerhouse cookie or the Xocai Activ beverage, contact me at 949 412-1001.
