Lloyd Irvin Launches No-Cost Online Coaching to Help People Get Started in Internet Marketing


Camp Springs, MD (PRWEB) March 12, 2014

Lloyd Irvin, the leading internet marketing expert, has this week launched a no-cost email coaching program to help people interested in starting an online business or growing an existing one.

His “30 Days to Master Internet Marketing” course shares specific tips and actions that allow anyone to get started in in internet marketing in just 30 days.

He says there are many reasons why now is the ideal time for people to learn about internet marketing. The reasons include:

    It has very low startup costs.
    The income potential is almost unlimited.
    You have the chance to make money doing what you love.
    It can be profitable quickly.
However, he points out that most people don’t know what steps to take to get started in internet marketing and there is a lot of misleading information being published about it online.

Lloyd comments:

“When I got started in internet marketing, I was a complete novice. I thought it would be a source of a bit of extra cash but it’s totally transformed my life.

I was only able to succeed because others with more experience shared the right steps to follow.

I recently realized that now almost nobody is sharing good quality information about how to succeed online with beginners. I created this free course because I want as many people as possible to have the opportunity of seeing the potential of internet marketing and of learning exactly what they need to do to succeed quickly.”

The key elements covered in the “30 Days to Master Internet Marketing” course include:

    Millionaire Mindset: Learning the thoughts and habits you need to create success
    Accurate Targeting: Finding the precise market that is best for you
    Suitable Offers: Identifying the products and services your market wants and will pay for
    Tons of Traffic: Reaching the maximum number of prospective customers
    Effective Conversion: Turning as many prospects as possible into customers
    Relationship Building: Encouraging customers to stay longer and buy more
Lloyd adds:

“If you are interested in getting started in internet marketing – or you have been trying it without achieving the success you want so far – some of what I cover in this free 30-day coaching program may challenge your thinking. Some of the steps I cover also require a bit of work.

I can’t promise you any specific results because I don’t know how hard you are willing to work. However, if you apply even just a few of these ideas, I’m confident your life can be transformed just as mine was.”

Anyone interested in creating additional income from an online business – or getting better results from an existing one – can sign up for the free course at http://www.lloydirvin.net.

Lloyd Irvin is one of the few entrepreneurs who have built multimillion dollar businesses both offline and online. He was among the first in the world to use internet marketing to grow his martial arts school.

The success of that led him to see internet marketing as a way of possibly adding a few thousand dollars a month to the income from his school. However, he has since built multimillion-dollar businesses in many different markets including running several million-dollar online product launches.

Freedom Laser Therapy President Craig Nabat Commends Billionaire Real Estate Tycoon Donald Trump for Listening to His Big Brother; Offers $10,000 to Help Trump Employees


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 07, 2014

Donald Trump is considered by many to be a shrewd and savvy businessman. Freedom Laser Therapy believes him to also be an intelligent person. When it came to smoking, Trump never started.

If anyone knows about credit, it’s Donald Trump; and The Donald is giving credit to his brother for helping mold his behavior. They say with age comes wisdom; and Donald Trump’s older brother Fred Jr. appears to have had his share when he told his little brother: “Don’t ever smoke, don’t ever drink.” — something Trump shared with Piers Morgan on “CNN Piers Morgan Tonight. “I say that to my kids now – no drinking, no drugs, no alcohol. So far my kids have been following my lead.” In the same heartfelt interview, Trump shared, “I had an older brother named Fred, who was a great guy, a handsome guy – the most handsome guy that you’ve ever seen. He had everything going: he loved flying airplanes, he was a professional pilot. Somewhere along the line, I think he was in college, he started drinking. It got worse and worse. He also smoked a lot. He was one of my great teachers, if not my best.” Sadly Fred died at 43.

Although The Donald is a teetotaler and non-smoker, surprisingly he has had issues with smoking and even had a vodka named after him. Not long ago, as a casino owner in Atlantic City, Trump was faced with the looming issue of a ban on smoking on the casino floors. One might assume that given Trump’s apparent abhorrence to smoking, this might seemingly have been a perplexing dilemma for The Donald, as he stated in the April 25, 2008 USA Today article, Trump: Atlantic City casinos should sue over smoking ban, “I’m not a smoker, and I don’t personally like what smoking does to people,” Trump told The Associated Press in an interview in his Manhattan office. “But this puts us at a huge disadvantage.” In the end, much to the delight the casino owners, the boardwalk avoided the ban, and their bottom line remains unaffected. As for the vodka with Trumps’ name — it didn’t last. But perhaps, as Billy Long restated on http://www.leadershipvoices.com, “How do we handle failure on the team?”, September 17, 2013, the answer falls under one of Trumps’ most well quoted lines: “Sometimes by losing a battle, you will find a new way to win the war.”

Craig Nabat, founder of Freedom Laser Therapy, says: “It would appear perhaps that society at large might still have a bit further to go to eliminate all trepidation surrounding the end of tobacco use and win the war on nicotine addiction; but at Freedom, we applaud Mr. Trump for his vital stand and in turn offer The Trump organization, at no charge to them, $ 10,000 worth of the new (for home use) Freedom Quit Smoking System, for your employees or anyone you know that desires to quit. Freedom’s goal is for Trump to recommend the corporate smoking cessation program to the rest of his team once our success is proven.”

About Freedom Laser Therapy

Freedom Laser Therapy Inc. is an established Los Angeles-based nicotine addiction clinic that has helped change the lives of thousands of smokers. After years of research and development, the company has launched the innovative “Freedom Quit Smoking System”, highlighted by its convenient 10-day at-home use, natural and nicotine free way to to quit smoking—as a means to help Americans across the country quit this deadly habit and promote healthier lifestyles. April 2014, marks the beginning of the Freedom Corporation Smoking Cessation Program’s nationwide launch.

More Than 80% of Florida Students Are Not Prepared for College Summer Programs May Offer Help


Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) February 27, 2014

Only 18% of high school students are prepared to face the rigorous demands of college, according to an ACT Florida Profile Report. Summer enrichment programs are one way that parents are helping their teens prepare better, focusing on academics, social and communication skills.

SuperCamp, an academic, life and career skills camp, is holding programs at the University of South Florida this summer to help teens improve grades, confidence and motivation. “It’s about helping students discover that learning can be fun, which leads to intrinsic motivation,” says President Bobbi DePorter. “More students are applying to top colleges than ever before. They need to know how they learn best and gain powerful strategies that help them excel.”

Even top-performing students may find themselves unprepared. Many students with academic talent coast through middle and high school, earning A’s with little to no effort, says DePorter. When they go to college and find work that challenges them, their work ethic and study habits often aren’t sufficient to succeed.

Researchers from the CRIS initiative argue that college readiness extends far beyond academic success. Determining success rates among students, they insist, requires new and different ways to measure college readiness that extend beyond test scores and grades. 40% of high school students are chronically disengaged from school, and confidence and motivation are often overlooked.

Carol Hall, a Miami mom that sent her son to SuperCamp in 2012 and 2013, was skeptical at first. “I had no idea how effective it would be. But at graduation, I knew that something was different in the smile he gave me. I took a deep breath, stepped back and have been letting him lead the way ever since. The change in him is remarkable and I recommend it to all the parents I know.”

About SuperCamp

SuperCamp is the world’s leading academic and life skills summer camp. For more than 30 years, SuperCamp has helped students increase their grades, confidence and motivation. SuperCamp has made a difference in the lives of over 70,000 graduates worldwide, with 73% of students improving grades, 81% experiencing increased confidence and an average 100-point increase on SAT scores. Florida sessions for middle and high schoolers run from July 14-20 and July 23-August 1.

Arab and South Perspectives Help Shape the New Global Development Agenda


Doha (PRWEB) February 20, 2014

Arab and South perspectives help shape the new global development agenda.

Success in ending poverty hinges on conducive policy frameworks, training and resources.

Developing countries of the South are taking greater control of their development future as the world debates a new global development agenda that will shape the 21st century, concluded delegates to the “First Arab States Regional South-South Development Expo,” which concluded today in the Qatari capital, Doha.

While countries of the South, including all those across the Arab region are rapidly developing, three elements are needed to ensure that South-South efforts to end poverty are successful and sustained: clearly formulated regional and national policies, effective institutional coordination capacities for experience exchange, and dedicated resources, including packaged knowledge, expertise, funding. This recognition has emerged as a concluding agreement at the end of three days of the Expo.

The Expo was the first ever such forum held at the regional level modelled after the Global South-South Development Expo, which has been convening annually, since 2008, to document successful development solutions from the global South and promote their replication and scaling up to meet common development challenges.

“We are proud to have hosted this landmark gathering,” said HE Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al-Thani, Assistant Foreign Minister for International Cooperation Affairs, State of Qatar. “We see the great success of the Expo, only as a beginning of concerted follow-up efforts that will capitalize on this success and institutionalize South-South Cooperation in the Arab region. We reiterate our commitment to continue to support such an endeavour.”

Practical focus: Solutions showcased, debated and transacted

The Expo focused on three thematic areas of priority to the region, but that are of global relevance as well, including youth and women’s employment and decent work, energy efficiency and renewable energy, and water and food security. Held under the motto “Solutions to Action,” the three days of the Expo included substantive deliberations; solution exhibitions; launches of cooperation-mapping and transaction-facilitating tools; and specialized solutions exchange forums.

“South-South Cooperation is not an alternative agenda to the MDGs or the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Agenda, currently under debate even though it can help us shape global development priorities” stresses H.E. Zsolt Hetesy, Vice-President of the United Nations General Assembly High-level Committee on South-South Cooperation. “Most importantly, South-South Cooperation adds a practical and vital tool to our global toolbox to proceed deliberately and effectively towards shaping our common development future.”

More than 500 delegates from 45 countries examined and exchanged views on evidence-based development solutions, platforms and mechanisms in the Arab States region and other countries that were successfully tested in addressing development challenges. The “Solutions Exhibition” featured booths for 30 organizations and showcased over 40 solutions, while 9 “Solution Exchange Forums,” presented over 60 well documented solutions from 20 countries, from the Arab region and beyond.

In addition to forums presenting solutions from the host country, Qatar, and from the private sector, the seven UN-facilitated forums included the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD); the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA); the International Labour Organization (ILO); United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN-Women).

The forums examined and debated potentials of replication and scaling-up of successful experiences in such areas as, employment generation, supporting entrepreneurship and business development capacities for youth, women and other vulnerable groups; energy efficiency (through education, regulation and standards) and providing clean and renewable energy alternatives; water harvesting and enhanced irrigation systems to build resilience to climate change; enhanced agricultural productivity; maximizing green economy opportunities (green jobs) for youth and women; the use of cooperative, solidarity and apprenticeship schemes to enhance employment opportunities; and wastewater treatment for food security.

The Expo launched the “Tool for Mapping of South-South cooperation mechanisms and solutions in the Arab States Region,” jointly produced by the Islamic Bank for Development, UNOSCC and UNDP. The publication version of the tool documented 40 solutions and 28 coordination mechanisms of successful South-South cooperation from across the region. Those solutions and mechanisms are also entered in an online version of the tool, which aims to grow into a comprehensive repository and hub of information gathering and an avenue to easy-to-use, real-time access to tried and tested South-South Cooperation solutions and mechanisms in oreder to facilitate future networking and exchange.

Additionally, the South-South Global Assets and Technology Exchange (SS-GATE) mobilize the participation of 67 private sector entities at the Expo and organized a “Matchmaking Space” to facilitate discussions and negotiations among participants, which managed to match 8 companies representing a range of sectors including food security, water, waste management, and clean energy. Negotiations and matchmaking continued over the three days and will be followed-up beyond.

The Expo also witnessed the launch of a large project employing South-South Cooperation modalities to strengthen Somalia’s education and health care infrastructures, and improve the livelihood of thousands of displace, unemployed men, women and youth through skill development, entrepreneurial training and micro-grants. The project combines forces of the Government of Somalia with the UN Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) and the Organization of Islamic Cooepration.

South-South Cooperation for Development taking hold in the Arab region

The First Arab States Regional South-South Development Expo came as the fruit of a strategic partnership between the State of Qatar, UNOSSC and UNDP’s Regional Bureau for Arab States.

“The dedication that we have seen over the three days of this Expo reminds us that the nations of the Arab region and the world can and must seek human progress as a common cause,” said Mourad Wahba, Deputy Regional Director of the United Nations Development Programme-Regional Bureau for Arab States. “We thank the Government of Qatar for generously hosting this event as yet another sign of extraordinary commitment and leadership to development cooperation, across this region indeed beyond. We look forward to continued collaboration with Qatar to build on the solid foundations laid here in this Expo.”

The Expo facilitated the building of many bridges of South-South Cooperation in several areas. It initiated bilateral partnerships and opened doors of assistance to solution providers to expand their operations to other areas of the Arab region. For example, the Small Scale Wastewater Treatment Plants project from Palestine has started collaboration discussions with organizations in Qatar and Jordan; the Egyptian Businesswomen Association and Afro-Arab Network for Women Empowerment offered to train women and youth entrepreneurs through their Training and Business Development Centre and Incubator. They announced that they will be holding a joint conference on South-South cooperation for Economic Empowerment for Women and Youth in April 2014.

Participating UN Resident Coordinators agreed to establish thematic working group to coordinate inter agency and joint work on South-South Cooperation, while representatives of regional UN entities agreed to set-up a regional mechanism for enhancing South-South Cooperation, including the facilitation of grants.

While many of the presented projects in the different areas generated some debate about feasibility of replication and scaling-up they only resulted in initial commitments during the sessions. Convening agencies committed to ensure follow up on these commitments and explore the possibilities of their further materialization into specific collaboration projects.

In his closing remarks, Yiping Zhou, Director of the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation emphasized that “this pioneering Expo has provided extremely rich regional perspectives on South-South cooperation and how it can help achieve development results.” He added “It is my task now, through my Expo report, to make this regional voice heard globally, not only conveying it to the UN Secretary General, but through him to the General Assembly deliberations on the Post-2015, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Agenda, which will shape our futures over the next decades.”

Help Patients Lose Weight Not Opportunity


Rock Hill, SC (PRWEB) February 18, 2014

When a physician took the oath to practice medicine, they likely had grand visions of helping sick people and making them well. They likely imagined having overweight patients come into the office and, with their help, turning themselves into thin, vibrant individuals who were no longer plagued with excess weight and the health issues that usually come with it. But, that isn’t generally how it turns out, is it?

Sure, a physician does a number of wonderful things and are able to help a great deal of people restore their health and deal with the symptoms that ail them. However, weight loss is a completely different issue. One that typically gets pushed to the sidelines.

It is the Patient Who Loses

No matter how much a physician wants to help their patients lose weight and reduce their risk of serious, sometimes fatal conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, the reality is that a physician can only do so much. The time to sit and go over each and every one of their behaviors that are either helping or hurting their weight is extensively. Physicians lack the hours necessary to research the large number of diet plans out there to see which one is the best for them.

While this is certainly understandable, it is the patient who loses most. They are left confused which direction to go, so they generally stand still. They don’t know exactly what to do, so they do nothing. It is a sad reality, but it no longer has to be like that.

How to Help Patients Lose Weight Without Giving Up Time or Money

There is a doctor created weight loss solution called SlimPlate System and the co-founders, Dr. Myo Nwe (a board certified obesity specialist) and Dr. Sandeep Grewal (a board certified internist), are offering it to fellow physicians free of charge. There are two options for a physican to consider.

First, if a physician does not offer weight loss services to your practice, they can refer patients to register free online at http://www.slimplatesystem.com/register and the patient will get the help they need to deal with their weight issue once and for all.

The other option is if a physician is interested in adding their own weight management services, they can contact SlimPlate System to find out how easily they can establish this new service in less than one week with no cost and no time. In fact, once a physician start offering the weight loss service at a facility, they will enjoy 100 % payer-independent extra income.

“This program teaches participants not only correct portion sizes, but also how many servings of each food group are necessary to reach and maintain a healthy weight.” says Dr. Nwe, “All the individuals have to do is use the scientifically designed SlimPlate plates and bowls and the weight comes off intuitively and effortlessly.”

The SlimPlate System was presented to physicians at the American Society of Bariatric Physicians in 2012 and the response was overwhelming. After all, 85% of bariatric surgery patients return to their pre-surgery weight, meaning that they need just as much help learning how to live in a way that will help them keep their results long term.

Physicians not wanting to focus on weight loss can now give clients access to this tried and true online weight program absolutely free of charge. The physician also don’t have to worry about taking the time to explain how to lose weight to your patients who are seeking help. All you do is refer them to the online program and they’ll do the rest. Patients can register at http://www.SlimPlateSystem.com/register.

If a physician is interested in helping clients reach their weight loss goals without having to commit to a contract, shell out their own hard earned cash, or schedule longer appointment times, then the SlimPlate Authorized Professional Affiliate Program is for them.

Visit http://www.SlimPlateSystem.org or call (803) 325-1111 to find out more information. It’s time to help patients help themselves using a healthy, effective doctor created weight loss method. They deserve that, don’t they?

More Than Half of Illinois Students Are Not Prepared For College Summer Programs May Offer Help


Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) February 10, 2014

Only 46% of high school students are prepared to face the rigorous demands of college, according to the Illinois State Board of Education. Summer enrichment programs are one way that parents are helping their teens prepare better, focusing on academics, social and communication skills.

SuperCamp, an academic, life and career skills camp, is holding programs at Loyola University Chicago this summer to help teens improve grades, confidence and motivation. “It’s about helping students discover that learning can be fun, which leads to intrinsic motivation,” says President Bobbi DePorter. “More students are applying to top colleges than ever before. They need to know how they learn best and gain powerful strategies that help them excel. ”

Even top-performing students may find themselves unprepared. Many students with academic talent coast through middle and high school, earning A’s with little to no effort, says DePorter. When they go to college and find work that challenges them, their work ethic and study habits often aren’t sufficient to succeed.

Researchers from the CRIS initiative argue that college readiness extends far beyond academic success. Determining success rates among students, they insist, requires new and different ways to measure college readiness that extend beyond test scores and grades. 40% of high school students are chronically disengaged from school, and confidence and motivation are often overlooked.

Craig McKenna, a SuperCamp graduate from Hinsdale, says that he left the program feeling better about his relationships and better about himself. “I met some incredible people who pushed me to a level I never thought existed in me,” he says. “If you want to learn how to succeed in life, this is the place to be.”

About SuperCamp

SuperCamp is the world’s leading academic and life skills summer camp. For more than 30 years, SuperCamp has helped students increase their grades, confidence and motivation. SuperCamp has made a difference in the lives of over 70,000 graduates worldwide, with 73% of students improving grades, 81% experiencing increased confidence and an average 100-point increase on SAT scores.
