Into 2013 with Amsterdam cruise


Moving into 2013

It's been a long time since I posted here, because I've been hit badly by the death of my partner.  Although I knew it was imminent, that doesn't make it any easier to bear.

The distress and the stress of the last couple of months then dragged me down with a dreadful cold that lasted 3 weeks and just wouldn't “go”, so the Christmas and New Year holiday periods were particularly difficult for me.

However, two very good friends invited me onto a short break cruise to Amsterdam and, although you'll see from the picture that the weather wasn't all that kind, they made sure I enjoyed myself and had a rest. (Apart from the time when my cabin-neighbours-from-hell thought it fun to “party” at 3am two nights out of three.)

So, now I'm back. It's 2013 and it's time to pick up the pieces.

First off I have several jobs to do for my “day-to-day” businesses, and ploughing on with those because they're guaranteed income!

After that, it's back to fighting this Internet Marketing again:-)

2012 was a BAD year for my Internet Marketing progress as I was diverted by a program I started in May that promised much but hasn't really delivered.

In case anyone wonders if that was because I was diverted from work by poor John's health problem, that's not the case. Much of his last months were spent sleeping, so I probably spent even more time working than I would have done if we'd been out and about.

So rather than waste any more time and money in that direction I have a new project I'm working on in the background.

And of course I will be carrying on improving my Hair Mineral Analysis site which is my best earner. To get some new ideas for marketing the HMA site I've invested in a low cost training course from Neil Stafford that's given me many ideas to implement. As an aside, Neil is a trainer I seem to go back to over and over again as his courses massively over-deliver and he's not a hype merchant. I printed out 500 pages from his latest offering last night and already implemented some of his quick tips. 499 pages to go…..

So, once I've cleared the decks of the jobs that accumulated while I was away and finished sorting out John's affairs, I'll be spending more time here.

In the meantime, a belated Happy 2013 to everyone.
