Exotic Pet Dangers In Apple Valley

Exotic Pet Dangers In Apple Valley

Does your child have an unusual pet? Many Apple Valley parents have bypassed cats and dogs for pets that don’t leave hair, urine, or vomit on the carpet. Ease of care, however, is not always a wise trade-off. Apple Valley parents should be aware of the multiple health and safety risks associated with reptiles, rodents, ferrets, primates, and even fish.

The following list of pets and the possible dangers reads like a script for a horror movie:

Fish: infections that can cause lung disease, skin infections, and leprosy
Hamsters: a virus that causes irreversible nerve damage
Hedgehogs: salmonella, yersinia pseudotuberculosis, rabies, and fungal infections
Iguanas, lizards, snakes: salmonella (the animals themselves can tolerate levels of salmonella far greater than humans)
Monkeys and other primates: herpes B (can cause meningitis in humans), tuberculosis, serious injury
Ferrets: these fierce critters with razor-sharp teeth have maimed many children
Prairie dogs: tuleremia (often fatal infection)
African Gambian rats: monkeypox (smallpox-related disease)

The foregoing information was taken from an excellent U.S. News article which can be found at http://health.usnews.com/health-news/blogs/on-parenting/2008/10/06/8-pets-that-pose-major-health-threats-to-kids

With proper hygiene and safety precautions these pets may not cause problems, but it is important to understand the possible dangers. Consult an expert for comprehensive instructions on caring for any traditional or non-traditional pet.

Direct Selling Has Evolved In Minneapolis

Direct Selling Has Evolved In Minneapolis

Network marketing in Minneapolis is nothing like it was twenty years ago. Minneapolis direct sellers had to host home parties and other events to show their products and explain the opportunity.

The internet has revolutionized Minneapolis home businesses in general and MLMs in particular.

Minneapolis direct marketers still have the option to sell Best Sellers Variety Case in person, but most of them use their website as their main marketing vehicle. You can make money online with Best Sellers Variety Case direct sales.

If you ruled out network marketing in the past because you don’t like to make presentations in person, I invite you to reconsider. Internet storefronts have taken direct selling to a whole new level.

You can find new Best Sellers Variety Case customers online, collect contact information, and build a database without leaving your Minneapolis home! You can also explain your home business opportunity to people all over the world.

I am Linda Sheplee. I launched my Best Sellers Variety Case online business in September 2010. My phone number is 651-285-1587. If you would like to learn more about online direct sales, contact me today at 651-285-1587.

Connect With Your Apple Valley Target Market

Connect With Your Apple Valley Target Market If you are a Apple Valley home based business owner with an online store, you have probably learned some of the basics of mass communication on the web. Today’s article focuses on how to refine your marketing efforts to connect with your core group of potential customers: your niche.

My niche, for example, are people who could benefit from Best Sellers Variety Case and would be most likely to buy it from my Best Sellers Variety Case home based business. Since this is a fairly broad group, I have broken down my target demographic into smaller sub-categories.

I have a category called ‘New Best Sellers Variety Case customers who have never tried a similar product’ and a category called ‘Customers who have used inferior Best Sellers Variety Case copycat products.’ I also have a category called ‘People who are interested in the Best Sellers Variety Case business opportunity for supplemental income’ and another called ‘People who are interested in a Best Sellers Variety Case business as a full time career.’

Anyway, you get the idea. Now let’s talk about connecting with your niche. Here are some suggestions from our helpful social media experts at businessbloggertips.com

Subscribe to three other blogs in your target market industry and read them at least once a week. Remember, these businesses do not have to be Apple Valley home based businesses or Minneapolis network marketing businesses. They simply need to be business blogs sponsored by businesses in your industry. In other words, these guys are targeting your market also.

Quoting other blogs is a great way to establish yourself as a hub in your niche and demonstrate your connection to the industry.

Link to other relevant sites. Don’t let your site become a dead end for visitors.

Make comments on other blogs in your niche. This establishes yourself as an active participant in your community and will help raise your site in the search engine rankings.

Any Apple Valley internet business owner can follow these simple steps to engage with their niche. I have been doing them for a while and am amazed at the results.

Are you looking for a way to become a new Apple Valley home based business owner? Call me today. I have the product, company, and business plan that will ensure your success.

Hot Chocolate Is The Market To Watch In Minneapolis

Cottage Grove Home Business All over the world, chocolate is a consistent best-seller. St Paul food trends come and go, but Cottage Grove chocolate sales just grow and grow. In my lifetime, I’ve seen the following Minneapolis food trends boom and fizzle: frozen yogurt, designer cupcakes, panini sandwiches, bagels, Jelly Bellys, and juice bars.

It seems like there is a new Woodbury pizza trend every month. How many different ways can you combine cheese, meat, sauce, and crust?

Chocolate, however, is a staple like bread, eggs, and milk. There are, of course, trends within the St Paul chocolate world. Some, like chocolate fountains, chocolate-covered pretzels, and chocolate covered strawberries, are still going strong. Others are losing steam; like chocolate-covered bacon, for example (did it ever have any steam, to begin with?).

How many global industries have such a loyal following? Even Coke and Pepsi are losing sales because of competition from energy and juice drinks. Starbucks seemed to be taking over the world in the nineties but has closed thousands of stores in the past few years.

Clearly, chocolate is a sure investment, but here’s the clincher; there is a high-antioxidant, low-fat chocolate that chocolate lovers can eat to promote health and well-being. Though it sounds too good to be true, Xocai Healthy Chocolate is that revolutionary chocolate incarnation that health-conscious St Paul chocolate junkies have only dreamed about.

Not everyone who eats chocolate cares about the health risks of traditionally-processed chocolate. However, there are thousands of Minneapolis people who are concerned about one or more of the following: oxidative cell damage, the heart consequences of a diet high in saturated fat, the evils of refined sugar, and the dangers of a weak immune system. As Apple Valley boomers age, more and more are cleaning up their act.

When I tell my St Paul Xocai prospects that they can continue to eat chocolate everyday if it is Xocai healthy chocolate, they order without skipping a beat. (I am, of course, their new best friend.) MXI President Jeanette Brooks says that the Xocai philosophy is simple: replace the bad with the good.

That’s the Xocai antioxidant chocolate business plan in a nutshell; replace the bad with the good. If you want to be part of a world-class organization in a recession-proof industry, call me today.

Minneapolis Mega-Meals: Don’t Eat The Whole Thing!

Minneapolis Mega-Meals: Don't Eat The Whole Thing!

It’s no wonder that many St Paul children and teens struggle with weight issues. What is considered a ‘normal’ food portion has been getting bigger and bigger. In some cases, as with gargantuan St Paul fast food soft drinks and Minneapolis Costco muffins-on-steroids, it is absolutely ridiculous. And extremely unhealthy.

The findings from three large national surveys demonstrate:

‘Hamburgers have expanded by 23 percent; a plate of Mexican food is 27 percent bigger; soft drinks have increased in size by 52 percent, snacks, whether they be potato chips, pretzels or crackers, are 60 percent larger.’1

St Paul restaurants and Minneapolis food and beverage manufacturers are not the only ones sabotaging our children. Portion sizes have increased in homes, also.

If St Paul parents are going to help their children maintain a healthy weight, learning proper portion sizes is critical. If we don’t know the size of a healthy portion, how can we teach our children?

The Mayo Clinic website has a great slide show that helps Minneapolis parents and other children’s health advocates understand what ‘4 ounces’ or a ‘half cup’ actually looks like. You can see it here: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/portion-control/NU00267

To order a terrific nutritional product for Minneapolis kids, call me today!

St Paul Entrepreneurs More Satisfied

Make money fast with online marketplace opportunity There are a growing number of Cottage Grove entrepreneurs who have traded traditional jobs in Minneapolis for flexible home based businesses. I am one of the new St Paul entrepreneurs who wanted to improve my lifestyle. I now sell Best Sellers Variety Case from my St Paul home and have never been happier.

I couldn’t quit my St Paul day job until I had grown my home based business large enough to generate sufficient income. I have now built a sales team (Eagle Xpress Team) that provides residual income every month. Some of my team members work part time but others have also ‘crossed the bridge’ into a full time home business as a Best Sellers Variety Case distributor.

I have a rewarding personal life that includes frequent family vacations, a variety of Minnesota recreational pursuits, volunteer work with two St Paul civic organizations, and a slew of hobbies. Now my work blends seamlessly with all the things that mean the most to me.

I have integrated my St Paul home employment with my personal life in a way that enhances both.

I love being able to work whenever I want–whether it is on an early Sunday morning when the everyone else is still sleeping, or after a workout on a Saturday morning. I am not limited to 9-5 on business days, or swing shifts, or graveyards. I feel like I am channeling my energy more effectively.

I spend more time with my spouse and kids since becoming a Xobiotic Squares distributor in September, 2010. We don’t have to plan months ahead for vacations. I am able to attend all of my children’s soccer games, music recitals, and swim meets.

The online marketplace for Best Sellers Variety Case is going strong with no signs of slowing. Become a Best Sellers Variety Case distributor in Minneapolis and establish your own channels of passive income.

Underemployed in St Paul?

Underemployed in St Paul?

While unemployment statistics are the numbers that usually make the news, underemployment is usually more common here in St Paul. Working Minneapolis people who are ‘underemployed’ have jobs that are not sufficient. This usually means the position is part-time or it doesn’t pay enough.

One solution for people in the Minneapolis area who find themselves underemployed is to start a home based business. I’m Linda Sheplee and I have a home business selling Best Sellers Variety Case in and around Cottage Grove, Woodbury, and Apple Valley.

Members of my Eagle Xpress Team team enjoy earning supplemental income in their free time, and they find that the personal nature of direct sales is the optimal way to sell Best Sellers Variety Case.

If you are an underemployed St Paul resident who would like the opportunity to earn residual income from home, call me at 651-285-1587. I would love to tell you why I chose Eagle Xpress Team for my St Paul home business.

Fun Exercise Ideas For Apple Valley Kids

Fun Exercise Ideas For Apple Valley Kids

When I was growing up in Apple Valley, my friends and I never ran out of things to do, and most of our activities provided at least a little bit of exercise. I have fond memories of playing kick-the-can on warm summer nights and swimming at the old Apple Valley community pool.

Unfortunately, many of today’s Apple Valley kids spend hours daily in sedentary activities. Exercise benefits our physical, mental, and emotional health. Perhaps you might enjoy participating in some of these with your son or daughter.

Fun exercise suggestions:

  • Fly a kite (It’s even more fun if you sing the song from Mary Poppins while you are doing it.)
  • Wheels: bike, skateboard, longboard, inline skates, rip stick, scooter (don’t forget a helmet!)
  • Rake the yard
  • Hula hoop (The Apple Valley Wal-Mart carried them last time I checked.)
  • Martial arts
  • Juggling
  • Hacky sack
  • Badminton
  • Weight lifting
  • Hopscotch
  • Jump-roping
  • Tug-of-war

I am concerned about the state of children’s health in Minnesota and like to share information about health issues in my blog. If you are looking for a low-fat, high antioxidant chocolate product that tastes like a diet-buster, call me today. I sell Xobiotic Squares and Best Sellers Variety Case, two tasty treats that help my kids stay healthy.

Artificial Sweeteners And Your Cottage Grove Child

Artificial Sweeteners And Your Cottage Grove Child When Cottage Grove parents try to limit sugar in their children’s diets, they often turn to sugar substitutes. There are dozens of sweetening options available.

NutraSweet, Splenda, Equal, Sweet’N Low, Xylitol, Sorbitol, highly refined Stevia (Truvia, Pure Via) possible benefits:
May help kid’s consume fewer calories
Doesn’t contribute to tooth decay
Generally safe for Cottage Grove children with diabetes (check with your doctor)

Don’t overdo it. Some Cottage Grove children experience diarrhea and other intestinal problems if they consume artificial sweeteners. If your Minneapolis child is trying it for the first time, go easy until you know how they react to it.

Many people believe artificial sweeteners cause cancer, contribute to weight gain, and cause health problems. Talk to your Cottage Grove pediatrician for children’s nutritional guidance.

To improve your child’s nutrition, ask me about Best Sellers Variety Case today by calling 651-285-1587. It’s a hit with children all over Minnesota and I am sure your kids will love it also!
