Poison Ivy Paranoia Or Not?

A few weeks ago I was working out in the yard racking leaves, trimming hedges and weeding the garden. I noticed a small vine climbing up the side of the house. I immediately knew it was poison ivy because it had a red stem and 3 pointed leaves. 3 days later I work up in the morning itching all over my body. My skin broke out in numerous rashes and leaking blisters. It was extremely irritating. I was getting so irritated from scratching myself that I wanted to throw a brick through a window.

My New Zealand Family Vacation

Mt Maunganui
It’s been 17 years since my family visited New Zealand. My kids were all under 6 years old so they don’t remember much about their previous visit. So I decided it was time for them to rekindle relationships with their uncles, aunts and cousins as well as get to know their Father’s birthplace. We decided to visit during New Zealand’s winter as it was the only time all our family was free (US summer holidays). Fortunately the temperature only goes down to zero at night but increases to 60 F during the day.

LastPass Review – The Last Password You Will Ever Need To Remember

  • Are you sick and tired of trying to
    remember all your online passwords?
  • Do you worry about a hacker gaining access
    to all accounts on your computer?
  • Want to save time by just remembering one Master Password?
  • Want to quickly access all your accounts
    across all your devices?

Watch My Review of LastPass

Since the year 2000 I’ve created 100s of passwords to log in to different accounts online. I often used the same password for every account thus making my accounts vulnerable to hackers.

Whenever I cleared my browser cache and cookies I’d lose all my login passwords and need to refer to my excel spreadsheet to find them again…a huge waste of time.

If I tried to access my accounts from another computer I’d often waste time trying to remember what passwords I used..usually making several attempts to find the correct one.

Perhaps you’ve had the same experience. If so, the best solution is to sign up for LastPass…a secure password manager.

Here Are The Top 3 Benefits For Using LastPass

5 Ways To Prevent “Shiny Object Syndrome”

shiny object syndrome

  • Do you currently have reports or software on your hard drive you’ve never opened or used?
  • Have you ever purchased products that did not deliver what they promised?
  • Did you ever buy products because the sales page was so good?

I have to confess I’ve purchased a lot of “stuff” online that still sits inside a folder on my computer waiting to be opened or installed. I bought it because I’d say to myself “I’d better get this now because I’ll probably need it later.” Inevitably I get busy with other things and soon forget what I’ve purchased and the initial excitement and enthusiasm for the product has disappeared.

What is “shiny object syndrome?”

Building and running a business online requires a lot of discipline especially if you’re doing it all yourself.

Some of these things may include content writing, search engine optimization, link building, video marketing, social media marketing, pay-per-click management, split testing web pages, writing a press release, podcasting, bookkeeping, publishing a newsletter, etc. These activities could easily occupy a full time marketing staff but because you can’t afford to hire employees you do it all yourself.
