Clickbank Rocks–From Ghana…


Our Clickbank shirts sport “The World is Mine”


Clickbank has provided us a platform to run and grow our business from anywhere in the world.

In one sense, we have thousands of employees and resellers, BUT we don’t have to micromanage them, we don’t have to look over their shoulders.

These employees are our resellers / affiliates through Clickbank, who own and operate their own business by reselling quality products of others.  It’s a win for everyone.

It’s been fun to get to know their company, and we’re very happy to be with such a progressive, warm and fun group of leaders.

If anyone is interested in how Clickbank can help you start a business… it’s actually really simple so let me know if you have questions.

We’ll be posting pics on this category with us one of our Clickbank shirts in different parts of the world, to give a little truth to their tag line “The World is Mine.” 

We always get funny looks and comments from the shirts ;P

This is funny

I’m thankful for shrimp

It was around this time four years ago (four? that seems so long ago) that Jacob invited me to his work Christmas party. We were at an awkward stage—should I go on my mission? Should Jacob prevent me from going on one? He asked me out by sending a text: Date tonite, yes or no?

I decided, “Yes.”

That night, there was plenty of party food. As I got a plate together, I turned to Jacob and said, “You know what? I think this is my first time to eat shrimp in public.” “Really?” Jacob replied. “How often do you eat it in private?”

And I swear to you, that is the reason he knew he wanted to date me. He doesn’t even realize it but I’m convinced that’s what won him over. Since then, I have eaten shrimp in public (and, I suppose, private) countless times, but I never stop being grateful for that offhand comment that Jacob found so endearing and hilarious.



I think this might have been for Homecoming, one of our first dates.

I Heart the Italian food pyramid

In the Italian gym, they have a food pyramid that is posted. It’s different than the American food pyramid. Could this be one reason why there is practically not a single overweight person in all of Rome, despite the pasta, pizza, and gelato galore? Or maybe it’s just because everyone here is a chronic smoker instead.



I love this food pyramid for so many reasons.

1. I’m highly converted to limiting carbs. When I stopped eating so much bread at every meal, my belly fat disappeared. I’m serious, it was like overnight, once I made the decision to limit white bread in particular. I feel like I figured out a secret that probably everyone already knows.

2. Vegetables, fruits, and daily exercise make the foundation of a healthy diet.

3. Red meats are limited.

4. Good fats found in avocados and olive oil are emphasized.

American food pyramid, you are partly the cause of America’s obesity. 6-11 servings of grains per day? You’ve got to be kidding me. Especially since most of the grains Americans eat are of the white, highly processed, high glucose variety.

It’s funny, too, that corn goes in the grain section on the first one, and vegetable one in the American one…



Anyone else think the American one is a bit outdated?
