As I watched a YouTube video this morning about the flooding in Nashville, it struck me once again why I am so passionate about my AZPortaVault product – and how I participate in protecting others from being devastated by the loss of their vital documents.  If you have ever visited my website, you will know that as an Insurance Agent for close to 30 years, I have seen it all happen, and I know, first hand that NOT ONE OF US is exempt from experiencing a significant catastrophic occurrence in our lifetime.

Let me ask you a really serious question, “What have you done to protect yourself in the potential loss of your vital documents?  If you have ever had a wallet lost or stolen, you have experienced the nightmare that is to resolve protecting yourself from identity theft and replacement of vital documents.  Can you imagine what it would be like if you didn’t have your items all together and had to quickly evacuate your home?  The time, the cost, the emotional burden?

I am about being proactive and being personally responsible for your life choices; I am also about solutions and resources that I can provide those who support my own professional success.  It is with that thought in mind that I went in search of  a resource that you can access in that same process of being proactive in knowing what to do if/when disaster may strike you and your family.  I hope you will be somewhat relieved to know that fortunately, most important personal records can be replaced. Depending on the document you need, use these links as a starting point.

Note:  This is one of those resources where I am taking it direct from its source and giving full credit to its creator – being, in essence, the vehicle by which you are made aware and your life can be positively impacted by my spirit of belief and my spirit of generosity…

Network Marketing can be anything you want to make it!

It can be the scam that for many years the MLM industry experienced by those who knew to focus on nothing more than the huge sums of money they could make – not by helping other people, but by robbing them of their dreams and money by selling an idea and a bucket-load of training materials.

Or…

It can be the new business model in a troubled economy that creates a perfect mechanism to counter the economic woes we experience – – – by helping each other create dreams through a system of responsibly mentoring, training and supporting those people who catch a glimpse of what it is REALLY all about.

I was more than touched at this YouTube video where Kevin Spacey reveals what Network Marketing CAN and SHOULD be, with the results being many changes lives on many levels.  This IS the business model of the future I would like to see!

Thank you for watching,
