It may look like a cartoon or just a comic from Bitstrips. ..
But in reality every thing is a tool or idea to create your own abundance. Books and movies like The Secret, the law of attraction and most abundance teachings describe envisioning your dreams.
Neal Donald Walsh discusses this in his books, Conversations with God. The three steps to creation are 1. Thought, 2. Word, & 3. Deed.
What that means: think about your manifestation, talk about, and then Do it!
Today I am raking in the money through online sales in my business.
Welcome to new world where your imagination creates your reality.

Love is unconditional, it is pure thought, word, and deed and fills one with a feeling of beauty and light.
If Love chose a side, would it not be through peace and courage? How does one fight against such negativity without falling down prey to the dark side?
Love. It is the answer I come back to time and time again. My parents are fighting by becoming less dependent on the government. Choosing to be prepared for economic collapse, talking to others about awareness and getting ready. I am proud of them, they are choosing to fight back. To stand for something they both believe in. While they are not pushing me to take their side, I can feel their worry for their children, family. I just can't accept that view, that fear and anger are the tools to fire up a nation into change.
So I am launching a new campaign,
Seeding Small Business.
We know that there are two things that run an economy, goods or services and how you pay for them.
Small business's are the driving force in creative development which from BIG business perspective is easier to let grow and buy later than doing your own research and development. Second starting a small business takes capital which the majority of American's are short on (see previous blogs on trickle down economics).
So how do we fight against the system that seems a labyrinth straight out of Lewis Carroll's Wonderland? How do we defeat the Queen of Hearts that lies in dungeon office at the Federal Reserve? What weapon's do we fight with to overcome a power corrupted government that no longer value's the people that it was created to protect and serve?
You guessed it, with Love.
Why Bitcoin? Because it is the only currency that is not backed by a centralized bank, or run by a small group of people none of us elected, EVER. Bitcoin because despite the bad press, arrests and knowing it was created by open source code which makes it great for illegal businesses, it is also surviving the onslaught of press.
Bitcoin is now rising in value because like you others notice that the world seems out of whack, and in need of a good Japanese torture massage.
Because Bitcoins are now being used by merchants like Target, Amazon, and over 20,000 business are accepting crypto currency. Not only does it cost less to process transactions but the checkouts are fast. And the top reason, no bank to tell you No.
No your business can't work. No your plan for selling this is a waste of time. No because your credit is poor. No. No. no.
Seeding Small Business is a non-profit which fighting against the Corporate and Political state of America with Love for the dream of Freedom and Bitcoins.
If there was a way to reach people without a central bank breathing down your neck. If there was a fight against tyranny that didn't include firing weapons. If there was a way to stand apart from the government and demand love without rioting wouldn't Love fight back?
So here, now, with you, and with each other we can stand against Corporate greed, bailouts that hurt the economy, and a government that hides behind fear propaganda.
Donate to Seeding Small Business and keep the dream of Freedom alive!

Their mission statement instilled a sense of pride and empowerment for their employees:
"Our goal is to provide customer valued solutions."
There was room for improvising, thinking outside the box, and even old fashion elbow grease.
During my last 5 months I took part in safety barbeques, employee lunches, and volunteer service work. As Christmas approached we began to gear up for the season. I am not oblivious to business needs, and expected black Friday sales to be typical of the commercialization of the holiday season. However, I was very surprised at the value system of the corporate machine. They changed little things in a few months that ripped at the fabric of their own mission statement.
First the cheer at morning huddle went from "never stop improving" to '"sell some stuff". Then the pep talk of pushing sales for unnessacary items. After the sales and inventory reports came back, the entire store was emailed with the amazing news. We broke almost every one of our records. Our store was a success and in the email from our own store manager the success was a direct result of associates stepping up to the challenge, digging deeper and upholding our mission statement. We had successfully separated ourselves from the competition by providing superior customer service. In the bottom line model we made more money, increased sales and found ourselves in another bracket: the 45 million dollar store.
That's when the bottom fell out of the illusion of a corporate giant making people first instead of money.
With only two weeks till Christmas Lowe's announced they were cutting 400 payroll hours. Several full timers with over 5 years were fired and there was another employee lunch scheduled with a Wii tournament.
Suddenly the store was vacant of red vest experts and customers wandered the isles hoping to find what they needed. I went from 30 hours to 15 almost every part timer was down to less. Fulltime associates worked without backup and their departments left abandoned so they could take their lunch. For the last three weeks I have worked a total of 6 days and while I have a secondary source of income many others do not.
This treatment of people will undoubtedly trickle down to customers and the once valued asset: people will be the one cutback that costs the store millions. It is this very reason why corporate America continues to decimate the economy: the greatest resource in business is people. If the value of the bottom line outweighs the camaraderie of human beings then we shall perish in refuse of our greed.
