Benefit of a Lifestyle Business

Running an online business is kind of like pumping iron at the gym.

You have to experience uncertainty…
You have to take control of your destiny…
You even have to be in command of your financial future…
It can feel a little bit daunting.

And at first, it may make some of your new “entrepreneur” muscles a little sore.
That’s because learning new skills each day as you climb higher up the mountain will challenge you.
It’s the mountain’s way of testing you to make sure you’re truly worth of reaching the TOP.

As you have challenges and then gain success,
not only will you grow your income, you’ll also grow your character as well.

I think that this is one of the hidden benefits of a business that very few people talk about.
Work those muscles, grow stronger and create the life you want.

See you at the top!!

St. Martin – St. Maarten


The island of St. Martin/St. Maarten is split between French Guadeloupe and the Dutch Netherlands Antilles, located in the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean Sea. The island is one of the smallest land masses in the world divided between two countries. The northern, French side of the island is known as Saint-Martin, and measures 21 square miles. The southern, Dutch side of the island is known as Saint Maarten, and measures 16 square miles. To avoid confusion between the variations on the name, the two regions are commonly referred to as “the French side” and “the Dutch side.” Although the island is controlled by two different countries, there’s no real border, only delineating monuments and signs. Over 350 years ago the two countries agreed to allow residents of either country to travel across the border without difficulties.
Philipsburg is the capital of the Dutch side, and includes the cruise ship dock. In 2009, more than 1.3 million people visited the island via popular cruise lines, and construction of a second nearby wharf to accommodate a new generation of even larger cruise ships continues. The dredging has generated huge piles of sand on shore being used to rebuild Philipsburg’s main beach, previously eroded by storms. Marigot is the capital of the French side. Grand Case, also on the French side, features several excellent restaurants.Attractions worth visiting include the Butterfly Farm, which features hundreds of colorful butterflies under a tented mesh; the farm is a great attraction for families. At 1,400 feet, Pic du Paradis is the island’s highest point and features two viewing areas. Otherwise, beaches are the main attraction. The island has 37 beaches, most attached to hotels, and all are fine for swimming and sun bathing. Beachside bars and cafes are very popular attractions on the island, and offer exquisite European and Caribbean cuisine. Image result for st maartenThe character of the beaches varies widely, with family oriented beaches and, as befits an island with strong European influences, topless sun bathing. Nude sun bathing is also accepted but for the most part is limited to a section of Orient Beach on the French side and Cupecoy Beach on the Dutch side. Orient Bay also features an underwater marine reserve where snorkeling and other water sports are available.Perhaps the most famous beach here is Maho Bay, situated at the end of the airport’s runway, meaning large aircraft fly just feet over sunbathers’ heads. Some people actually engage in the practice of attempting to hold onto the airport fence as aircraft depart, although there have been injuries and deaths doing this. In any event, the view of the airplanes landing so close to the beach is a must-see. Just beyond Maho Bay is Mullet Bay, considered by some the nicest beach on the island, which offers food and drink vendors and beach lounger rentals, although few facilities. A full complement of tours and excursions are available, as well as water sports and parasailing.

Casinos are also a popular attraction on the island, with St. Maarten offering several casinos, including Atlantis World in the Cupecoy area, Casino Royale located in the Maho area, and Paradise Plaza and Tropicana located in the Cole Bay area. Phillipsburg has at least five casinos.

Aghios Nikolaos, Greece

 Image result for Agios Nikolaos, GreeceWith the mesmerizing Lake Voulismeni flowing into the ocean, Aghios Nikolaos, Crete, Greece is a perfect example of a magical paradise. Even the beautiful Greek goddesses Athena and Artemis are rumored to have bathed in the turquoise waters of the lake. Capital of the Prefecture of Lasithi, Agios Nikolaos, meaning Saint Nicholas, is populated with sandy beaches, ancient and modern architecture, restaurants, hotels, and trendy shops. It is a vibrant town with a peaceful atmosphere and breathtaking sites. Whether you are gazing at the skull of a young female athlete during the reign of the Roman Empire or you are touching the ancient marble columns of the Aghios Nickolaos Ragavas Church, the attractions show how traditions and history play a major part in Grecian society.

To appease your shopping addictions, Agios Nikolaos has many quaint shopping areas. From designer labels to antique souvenirs, its expansive selections of goods such as art, jewelry, home décor, and clothing are satisfying to tourists in need of retail therapy. You can take a piece of Cretan culture home by shopping at one of the antique boutiques or you can treat yourself to a juicy fruit or gourmet cheese from one of the local markets. The picturesque beaches are inviting and they encourage you to lie under the bright sun, or you can cool off in the sea and try to dodge the waves. Not only can you swim with the fish, but you can catch them as well. The waters of Agios Nikolaos are filled with numerous species of fish like snapper and mackerel, and there is nothing like the thrill of a fish gnawing at the end of your hook.

Enjoying a hearty meal and sipping on the town’s best wine is also a great cultural experience. The delicious aromas coming from lamb, braised goat, and moussaka fill the air at the La Casa Café’- Restaurant. For an all-in-one lounge, restaurant, and bar head to the Gold Lounge Bar Restaurant and enjoy live entertainment while dining on dishes like freshly caught lobster and beef fillet. For creative Cretan delicacies like fish soup and stuffed, fried zucchini blossoms, Meet and Eat in Crete also provides a relaxed ambiance with the panoramic view of the ocean in the background. Agios Nikolaos has a variety of delicious cuisines with inviting atmosphere that will leave you fulfilled yet still craving more.

Image result for Agios Nikolaos, Greece

Plenty of sunshine all year round makes Agios Nikolaos a great destination spot. During the summer there is little to no rainfall because the weather is mainly hot and dry. In July and August the temperatures average from as high as 91.4ºF to as low as 71.6ºF. In April (spring) temperatures reach a little over 64.4ºF and throughout the Month of May temperatures range from 68 ºF to 75.2ºF. In June temperatures soar to 80.6 ºF and the wettest months January and February temperatures can get as low as 53.6 ºF. However, In September and October the temperatures remain slightly above 68 ºF.

Bus Transportation in Agios Nikolaos is located near the town center. These buses run every 30 minutes and they travel to the towns of Sitia, Iraklio, Ierapetra, Elounda, Kritsa, and Plaka. Ferries travel to Athena every other day and glass-bottomed catamarans go to the marine water world which cost €18.50 (23.17 USD) for adults. In addition, there are boats in the summer time offer inexpensive rides to Spinalonga. However, the best memories can be made by just taking a simple stroll or cycling while admiring the beautiful scenery.

Worry Less and Smile More!

  • Anyone else tired of reading the news? It’s been a rough year on many fronts, with global economics, violent shootings and unpopular politics filling the news cycle. Some days it seems next to impossible to filter through the negativity and find good in the world.

    It begs the question: Are optimistic people living in a state of self-delusion? Where is the value of positivity? Before you give up on humanity, really take a look around. There is good everywhere. There are wonderful things that will soften even the most callous heart. The key is ending the cycle of negativity in favor of the power of positive thinking.

  • Unplugging

    Our constantly connected culture comes with some serious perks. Social media, smart phones and tablets help us connect with loved ones on a level never before dreamed possible. However, all that connectivity keeps us dialed into the outside world all the time.
    Designate a part of your day, preferably a large part, as tech-free time. Give yourself permission to disengage from cynical Facebook posts, guilt-inducing blogs, dreaming of a better life on Pinterest and following negative news stories. Use this time to engage with the people around you.

  • Take 30 minutes to read books to your kids, prepare a meal with your spouse or call a good friend. These simple acts will boost your sense of well-being. When we make a conscious effort to leave our digital life behind, we re-enter the real world where you can make priceless memories.
  • Accentuate the Positive

    You can find the good in the world. You can break the cycle of negative thinking. It all starts with where you choose to look. Some people wallow in the negative. You know the people; they are the dramatic, needy, negative, energy drainers who you feel obligated to stay close with. Let them go.

  • Surround yourself with positive people, and you will find yourself becoming more positive in the process. Choose to spend your time with those who inspire you, lift you up and help you see the world for the beautiful place it is. These good people will put your challenges in proper perspective and keep you from focusing your energy on things beyond your control.Here are some lessons we can learn from our children on being happy.

    Seeking the joy.

    Now that you’ve learned to worry less by reconnecting with the real world and ditching the negative influences, it’s time to smile more. Smile more and mean it. Smile more and feel it.

    Happiness is a choice. It’s one we make over and over, every single day. We can choose to find joy. Get outside, celebrate the big and little moments, find your passion and follow it with purpose. If you can’t find the good in your world, create it. When you dedicate your time and talents to bettering the lives of others, you become the good you want to see in the world. What a powerful sentiment.

    Perfect for the Stay at Home Parent working with Coastal Travel Vacations

  • The Inevitable Conclusion

    What are the consequences of letting go of worry and choosing to see the positive? First of all, you will stand out among the crowd. Some people may categorize you as naïve or idealistic, but you can’t please everyone all the time. Don’t worry about the detractors. However, there will be an even larger number of people awed by your influence. People will flock to you, and they will follow in your footsteps.

    Don’t run from leadership. Put yourself and your positive attitude out there. Disappointment may follow, but don’t let yourself get sucked back into the vortex of worry and self-doubt. Even the best people have horrible days, but bad days do not have to become a habit.

    The world is a beautiful place, full of good people who are doing a great work. Join their ranks. You have power over your emotional landscape, and you really can choose to worry less and smile more.

Get Bumped Up to First Class on Your Next Flight!!

First Class

Admit it: Flying first class can make the hassles of air travel so much better. I’ve been bumped up to first class twice: once while traveling solo on a business trip to Boston and once with my husband on our honeymoon. Let’s just say I liked it very much. Who wouldn’t appreciate a glass of Cabernet while waiting for everyone else to board?

While I love flying first class, I don’t exactly want to pay for it. First-class tickets can cost four times the coach fare, and it doesn’t seem worth it for a short flight.

So how do you increase your odds of getting moved up? Here are 10 things you can do to increase your odds of flying first class for free:

1. Dress the part. Pack your yoga pants, torn jeans, and flip-flops, and wear something that belongs in first class. You don’t have to wear a suit (although it wouldn’t hurt). Just wear something professional, and shows that you belong.

Bob Atkinson, travel expert at TravelSupermarket.com, advises sticking to the “smart casual” code, and that “a cashmere shawl or linen jacket can make all the difference.”

2. Ask for an upgrade. Sometimes if you want something, all you have to do is ask. When you check in, say to the agent: “If you are upgrading passengers on this flight, I would like to be considered.” Be sure to smile. Many of the people gate agents deal with are complaining; you’ll stand out if you’re friendly and polite.

“Be nice to everybody from the moment you walk on airport property,” former flight attendant Carolyn Paddock, founder of the website Life in Flight, told Bankrate.com. “You’re talking to people who are decision makers.”

3. Be early. The early bird gets the worm. Instead of trying to get the attention of the agent while he or she is busy with other passengers, show up early and be the first one to ask. Your flight may have only one or two upgrades available.

4. Travel solo. There is a greater chance that just one or two seats will be available in first class. If you frequently travel with co-workers, your odds of getting singled out are slim. Instead, fly by yourself to improve your chances.

5. Travel during peak times. If the flight has fewer passengers, chances are no one will be moved up. Airlines are more likely to upgrade people to make room on flights they oversell.

6. Sit next to the baby or take the middle seat. If a flight attendant is moving passengers, he or she may look to make the trip more comfortable for someone by moving them from a less desirable seat.

7. Give up your spot. When the gate agent asks for people who are willing to give up their seat, volunteer if you can be upgraded on the next flight. You will experience the delay, but it might be worth it if you can fly first class. This works especially well if there aren’t other people volunteering, Jeanenne Tornatore, senior editor at travel website Orbitz.com, told Market Watch.

8. Check your seat. When you sit down, make sure your armrests, recliner, tray table, and seat belt are in working condition. If they’re broken, let the flight attendant know. Passengers in broken seats will be reassigned–and it could be to first class.

9. Join the airline’s loyalty club. Even if you don’t travel often, it doesn’t hurt to become a member of an airline frequent-flyer club. You’ll often receive upgrade opportunities, and if agents are looking to move someone, they could look to their list of members first.

“If our airport staff are looking to upgrade passengers on the day of departure, there is a process that they follow which generally sees passengers that are frequent flyers of the airline–or those that have paid for a fully flexible ticket–benefiting,” Harriet Bevis, Virgin Atlantic spokesperson, told the Daily Mail.

10. Let flight attendants know if it’s a special occasion. If it’s your birthday, anniversary, or honeymoon, let the flight attendants know. And if you don’t get an upgrade, you just might get a free drink.

Impress Your Team – 12 Distinctive Ways That Will Make You Stand Out

IMAGE: Getty Images

Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by what we get, and we make a life by what we give.”

To make a great impression takes much more than just being present: It takes giving fully of ourselves. When we do, great things can happen.

Here are 12 unique ways to impress your team.

1. Be True to Yourself.

Working with a team doesn’t require a special personality or great intelligence.
The secret is to be the very best parts of who you are.

If you set the right example, you won’t need to worry about being impressive.

2. Be Appreciative.

Thinking and speaking from the heart, acknowledge and appreciate those who work hard, and have passion for what they do.
When you appreciate those around you, you show you care.

3. Be Honest.

Honesty is the ultimate competitive advantage, and the first chapter when it comes to effective relationships.
Most people don’t want perfection; they want truth. There is no stronger foundation between individuals than honesty.

4. Be Inclusive.

Give those on your team room to grow, to be themselves, and to exercise their diversity, and appreciate their differences.
Without diversity we would not be productive , and without inclusion we would not be effective.

5. Be Respectful.

Are you operating out of respect for each member of your team? If so, you are going to succeed; if not, you’re likely to fail.

6. Be Collaborative.

The strength of the team is each individual member, and the strength of each member is the team.
Those who make the biggest impression are the ones who truly understand that doing something alone
is not as powerful as doing something collectively.

7. Be Caring.

Never stop doing the little things for others. Sometimes it’s those little things that occupy the biggest part of our hearts.
If we can shift our focus away from ourselves, if we can extend our care and concern for our own well-being to those around
us, the response is likely to be immediate and overwhelming.

8. Be Excellent.

If you want to do excellent work, you must give your best to everything you do. Excellence is the gradual result of always
striving to do better and be better. We are what we repeatedly do; therefore, excellence is not an act but a habit that we
create every day in all that we do.

9. Be Supportive.

Look for ways to give each member of your team more control over their piece of the business to show that you believe in their competence.
Bet on people, not on strategies. Believe in their competence and let them surprise you.

10. Be Confident.

Confidence is not a state of mind but a way of life, not something that you turn on and off but something that you emulate every day.
Confidence breeds competence and competence breeds consistency.

11. Be Committed.

Commitment to a team is critical. It takes the commitment of everyone to truly make things happen.
One person who wants something is good; a team who works together to make something happen is great.

12. Be YOU.

Bring your best self to your team and allow them to see your gifts and potential.
When you are part of a team, you behave in a defined way to reach a common goal.

Many of us work on teams, and those of who don’t, work with others in some capacity. To be impressive,
we must care for one another without boundaries; we must acknowledge that great work requires inclusion and diversity.

Don’t Allow ‘BUT’ to Stop You..

BUT
Most of us go through life pretending…
That we don’t have any special goals or ambitions or desires..
When deep down inside we do really want more..

We block ourselves, and use these words almost like we’re in a trance..
Like we’re sleepwalking through life.

We find way to cancel our dreams.
A lot of things we want to do, a lot of places that we want to go,
a lot of things we would like to experience and we just stop at ‘BUT..’

‘BUT’ will cause you to hide out behind fear.

‘But’ will cause you to come up with all kinds of excuses that you can
validate your inaction and NOT acting on your dreams.

‘But’ is a Dream Killer.

Most people, do you know what they do?
They go through life quietly and tiptoeing to the early grave.

We’ve been holding back, we have ideas that we don’t act on.
Things we want to do but are afraid to take action on….
