Wellness Coach: Amy Bowers

I am so excited to announce the beginning of HOMEmade Bodies!  It’s main goal is to focus on health and fitness and the benefits of working out from home.  It is based on the concept that “lifestyles begin at HOME, not in the gym”, as that is where I believe our decisions start daily.  We all have the power to make the choice every morning to wake up fresh and make changes in our life that will bring about positive results.

I began working out from home 7 years ago after I became a mom for the first time and it has been my main source of fitness and health ever since.  After years of being asked “What do you do to stay in shape?” I decided to share my HOME workouts and tips with all of you.  After a fantastic summer it is time to re-set your health and…

Time To Re-Engage

It’s been awhile, life has taken me on quite the journey since Oct last year. And I thought before I got back on here blogging I had to decide what could I share that would be worth while to others to bother to read?

Well not much of an answer came back, not because I had nothing to share but more on which subject and where do I draw the line?

So I decided on a mixture of everything a blog on life on my life. I know I’m unique but yet an everyday man. I want the same goals and dreams of many fathers out there. A loving wife a healthy safe family and be able to provide a quality life. Also same goals and dreams of any sports guy, attend pro games, the superbowl, roadtrips, fishing trips and tail gating. I have a finance background so I LOVE talking about economics and stock trading which I do for a living. And I am involved with a health and wellness company that I am very passionate about and absolutely LOVE their products and truly believe that whomever takes an unbiased look will see just from the labels what I am talking about. I LOVE being a parent and raising my children and moulding them into amazing young adults and can’t wait to witness all they achieve. 

So in a nutshell this blog will be all over the place but in reality so are our lives, so I hope you enjoy, I hope that one piece of info or one thought shared can make the even smallest impact in your lives and that will be worth more than I can ever find the words to explain.

Every single day LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH.

Monster Residual Checks!!!!!

..in case you didn’t know, Halloween
is my favorite holiday of the year. As a kid I had a pretty wild imagination

(still do)…

I would fantasize about being a ninja
trained by the last surviving member of a
warrior clan who’s sole responsibility was
to avenge our fallen brethren…
or an international spy, (cool gadgets
& all) trapped behind enemy lines,
evading detection, while uncovering
secret soviet plans for global domination
(during the cold war, obviously)
Or just running around the house, shirtless,
with mom’s red lipstick across my chest in
three “cut marks” ala Bruce Lee in  “Enter
The Dragon”…
(Those pillows never had a chance 🙂
Never embarrassed, never shy, and
never once thought it couldn’t happen…
…anything was possible…
But somewhere in our teens we start to get
“cooler” then costumes, trick or treating, &
forget the fantasy we so easily accepted as
“possible” when we where younger……(I blame puberty 🙂

We Start To Grow Up…
We abandon or fantasies in favor of the
harsh realities of the “real world”…
We start to believe others’ limitations are
true, and stop looking-up to what we could
be if we chose…
In essence, a little bit of our spirit dies…
But Halloween, gives us a chance to
pretend again…
For one day out of the year we’re able to
don our safety pinned towels & fly around
like superman again, and it’s 100% ok…
So I would strongly encourage you to
embrace your inner child today, have fun,
let your imagination run wild, and pretend
After all, if not today, when?
So what does this have to do with
Monster residual checks, you ask?
Everything, actually…
You see, when I joined my first home
business I found myself dreaming again…
Fantasizing about how my life will be, now
that I’d found such a killer opportunity, to
share with the world…
But just like my youth, reality crashed
in filled with doubters, pessimists &
haters, all saying, “get a job”, “give up”,
and “It’ll never happen”…
But I didn’t give up
(too stupid to quite, remember 🙂
And as a result was able to achieve
recruiting success again and again…
How was I able to do this?
How did I persevere when every barrier
was set against me?
I fantasized…
I dreamed of what my life would be like
when I reached my financial goals, driven
by the desire to say “I told you so”, pulling
up to the next gathering in my new luxury car…
Able to send my children to the finest
schools in the state, and travel monthly
to see new places…
Every day, I held on to these dreams, and
let them drive me to find the skill-sets
that allowed that fantasy to become a
When doing the work i needed in order
to achieve my dreams got hard, I
“borrowed from the future” to help
inspire me through…
All of the great things I enjoy now (including
Monster residual checks) all stem from
my “wild” imagination & fantasizing…
So again today, pretend to be super
human, but don’t stop there…
Every day make it a point to “fantasize”
about who you want to be when you
grow up…
…And never, EVER, give up that fantasy.
Because no matter what, I believe in you too…

The Myth About Selling

Often in MLM I get asked if ” I have to sell ” normally my response is NO, I don’t sell I share a product I’m passionate about to other people, I do not retail it as I give the the opportunity to pay the exact same amount as I pay.”

But yet some will say that alone is a sales pitch so I say fine then it is, the choice is now up to you. I thought I would share this little story about the myth of selling.

When I was a child I absolutely despised salesmen.You see, one sunny day, this real “slickster” of an insurance salesman drove up to our farm in the swamp country of Northern Ontario and asked for my father.

By “slick” I mean polished with Bull S***.

His shoes were shinier than our bathroom mirror.

His teeth sparkled like glitter…

His eyes glinted like greedy little bandits in caves…

The man just “oozed” fake…

He sold a legal but fake insurance policy to my father…

It covered everything you could imagine…

The catch was…

It only “kicked-in” if the doctor kept you in hospital for a week.

Now, I’m not sure where you’re from, but nobody who isn’t in a full body cast or dying is admitted to the hospitals for more than a day or two around here…

They don’t even keep pregnant women in for more than a day or two.

They boot them out the door the second the baby flies out of their vagina.

So it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that when my father was injured and unable to work for a month in my teenage years that his policy was useless as a cup of dirt…

That’s why I hated salesmen for years. “They” ripped my father off.

I thought they were downright crooks out to rob the poor…

Then I started my first business when I grew up and I realized that somehow I had to find some customers for my business or I would starve…

I suddenly realized that I had become a salesman…

That the salesman I knew was a bad one.

But I didn’t have to be.

This is what growing up is all about. It’s about throwing away the childish myths we believed when we were children about the people we “know”…

It’s about growing up…
Yours in success,
Courtney James

Two Choices

As a father this story really hit home and I needed to share.

What would you do?….you make the choice. Don’t look for a punch line, there isn’t one. Read it anyway. My question is: Would you have made the same choice?

At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves children with learning disabilities, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling the school and its Dedicated staff, he offered a question:

‘When not interfered with by outside influences, everything nature does, is done with perfection.

Yet my son, Shay, cannot learn things as other children do. He cannot understand things as other children do.

Where is the natural order of things in my son?’

The audience was stilled by the query.

The father continued. ‘I believe that when a child like Shay, who was mentally and physically disabled comes into the world, an opportunity to realize true human nature presents itself, and it comes in the way other people treat that child.’

Then he told the following story:

Shay and I had walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were playing baseball. Shay asked, ‘Do you think they’ll let me play?’ I knew that most of the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team, but as a father Ialso understood that if my son were allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging and some confidence to be accepted by others in spite of his handicaps.

I approached one of the boys on the field and asked (not expecting much) if Shay could play. The boy looked around for guidance and said, ‘We’re losing by six runs and the game is in the eighth inning. I guess he can be on our team and we’ll try to put him in to bat in the ninth inning..’

Shay struggled over to the team’s bench and, with a broad smile, put on a team shirt.. I watched with a small tear in my eye and warmth in my heart. The boys saw my joy at my son being accepted.

In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay’s team scored a few runs but was still behind by three.

In the top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a glove and played in the right field. Even though no hits came his way, he was obviously ecstatic just to be in the game and on the field, grinning from ear to ear as I waved to him from the stands.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay’s team scored again.

Now, with two outs and the bases loaded, the potential winning run was on base and Shay was scheduled to be next at bat.

At this juncture, do they let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the game?

Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that a hit was all but impossible because Shay didn’t even know how to hold the bat properly, much less connect with the ball.

However, as Shay stepped up to the

Plate, the pitcher, recognizing that the other team was putting winning aside for this moment in Shay’s life, moved in a few steps to lob the ball in softly so Shay could at least make contact.

The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed.

The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly towards Shay.

As the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball right back to the pitcher.

The game would now be over.

The pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could have easily thrown the ball to the first baseman.

Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game.

Instead, the pitcher threw the ball right over the first baseman’s head, out of reach of all team mates.

Everyone from the stands and both teams started yelling, ‘Shay, run to first!

Run to first!’

Never in his life had Shay ever run that far, but he made it to first base.

He scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled.

Everyone yelled, ‘Run to second, run to second!’

Catching his breath, Shay awkwardly ran towards second, gleaming and struggling to make it to the base.

By the time Shay rounded towards second base, the right fielder had the ball . The smallest guy on their team who now had his first chance to be the hero for his team.

He could have thrown the ball to the second-baseman for the tag, but he understood the pitcher’s intentions so he, too, intentionally threw the ball high and far over the third-baseman’s head.

Shay ran toward third base deliriously as the runners ahead of him circled the bases toward home.

All were screaming, ‘Shay, Shay, Shay, all the Way Shay’

Shay reached third base because the opposing shortstop ran to help him by turning him in the direction of third base, and shouted, ‘Run to third!

Shay, run to third!’

As Shay rounded third, the boys from both teams, and the spectators, were on their feet screaming, ‘Shay, run home! Run home!’

Shay ran to home, stepped on the plate, and was cheered as the hero who hit the grand slam and won the game for his team.

‘That day’, said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face, ‘the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and humanity into this world’.

Shay didn’t make it to another summer. He died that winter, having never forgotten being the hero and making me so happy, and coming home and seeing his Mother tearfully embrace her little hero of the day!

My Inner Battle

This past week has been amazing and eye opening. I have had some inner sea saw battles with my limiting beliefs. I guess the best way to share it with all of you is to try and frame the story first.

A little over 3 years ago I joined my first MLM company. I had zero experience with this business and zero clue on what I was going to do next. So I employed the techniques that I had always used in my life when I was faced with this problem. I “winged it” I started sharing something I didn’t really know or understand, but was confident that it was a good thing, I was confident I would learn as I went. The results in the beginning were mixed. Some jumped on board with some said no and we moved on.

What I wasn’t prepared for was the X factor in the MLM industry. To me that X factor was how much of my success was going to be strictly tied to my inner beliefs and how big of a person I was. My success was going to be determined on how much value I personally could offer my team and chained to my limiting beliefs about myself.

Lucky for me tho I picked up on this quickly. And I began my journey on self growth. I attended seminars, read books, listened to tapes. Now I’m not going to go over all of this in details, you can check out the stages of this journey in my new years entry. All of these actions I took opened and unlocked more and more limiting beliefs I had holding me back. So slowly but surely I felt I was eliminating these limiting beliefs and growing. But was I?

During this time I also dove into learning all I could about network marketing. I was starting to see some success and wanted more. I bought all the books and online courses. I bought a ton of their programs and newsletters and just soaked up all the info. Early on I picked up on a trend a new wave of thought in the MLM industry. That new trend was online internet marketing. I knew instantly this was the key this was the secret but I had zero experience and knowledge and most of the things they said I needed to do was out of my comfort zone. But I pushed ahead anyways. So yet again I dove in buying all the books, training and programs. I attended live seminars of the guru’s and with each passing lesson I picked up a little bit more info to apply. I was getting frustrated reading about all these success stories how these individuals picked up this one course and in two months were making 50K a month. Why wasn’t this working for me?

So I went back to my growth books and began looking inside, looking for that limiting belief that was holding me back. I built up my belief that this was going to work, I didn’t know HOW but just that is was.

Which brings me back to this past week. You see a little over a week ago all my dreams and wishes came true. I finally had my hands on a online system specifically designed for my product and MLM company. I didn’t know the how but the universe delivered what I had been dreaming about, delivered what I had been wishing for and SO much more. I not only received a lead generation machine that is unrivalled in the whole industry but it came with a complete step by step training engine that ensures duplication and massive growth. Literally everything I could have possibly asked for and more. It came with amazing leaders and coaches to help usher us to greater heights than maybe even I thought was possible. SO right about now you may be asking ” what’s the problem? Why the inner battle?”

Great question and one I had to ask myself yesterday. Why was I feeling down? why was my energy level low? why wasn’t I happy?

The answer: My mindset, you see my limiting beliefs sometimes set some unrealistic expectations and when I don’t hit those on my first try my beliefs say “see told you that wouldn’t work” BOOM zapping my energy and my happiness.

I had to reset, I had to tell myself out loud what I was grateful for and repeat out loud all my wins. I went over my success’s opposed to measuring my losses. I gave myself permission to start slow and learn. I told myself it was ok that I wasn’t converting at a pro level because I’m not a pro. This process was new to me and if I attacked it like everything else in my life then I would succeed.

The result was I awoke this morning with a sense of calm a stirring excitement deep in my gut. I awoke happy to attack the day and the week ahead. I followed up with my coaches today and was honest with them about my feelings and thoughts and again was reassured about the success I was and am on the verge of achieving.

So moral of my story is if your battling with your inner self…stop take a step back and look at the whole picture. Celebrate your wins and forget the losses because with time and practice the wins grow and the losses decrease. With time the limiting beliefs disappear and are replaced by bigger stronger empowering beliefs. If your battling with your inner self it means a good thing because your getting un-comfortable and your growing.

Live the LIFE you desire and seize the moment!!

As Gold Passes $1822 And Markets Tank, Is This “The Big One?

With the DOW down -409 points at the time of this writing, and gold hitting $1822, (another all-time record high), words like “parabolic” are starting to seep into the headlines…

The QE heroine from the past two years is wearing off, and as expected, the economy is falling into withdrawal.

The entire global system is headed for a massive depression of epic proportions that SHOULD have taken place back in 2008.

Just as wildfires keep forests healthy by burning off dead, insect-infested wood and brush, these massive resets that take place every 80-100 years are nature’s way of clearing the corrupt and diseased within the economy, in order to reset the system and create an opportunity for a new cycle of growth.

So is this the big sell-off that will take the markets down 40-70% over the next few weeks or months?

It should be.

But Washington and the Fed will do everything within their power to prevent that from happening, because it will be their heads on the line if it does.

Their only course of action left is to literally buy the Billions of dollars in stocks being sold, and flood the world with freshly printed currency. They have been doing both with zeal.

Obviously, these are the desperate moves of con artists who are out of ideas and options, and the American people are going to take it in the ass not once, but twice in the form of a hyperinflationary-depression. (Pardon the vulgarity, but I prefer blunt honesty over political correctness).

Whatever you have in the markets will be toast as they collapse, and whatever you have in savings will be turned into toilet paper through inflation.


The stock market is completely rigged. When the Fed can just come in on a down day like this one and simply buy the indexes until it ends up green again, you’re participating in a scam.

The dollars in your bank account are fake pieces of dirty paper that represent your lifelong repayment of debt to sociopaths.

The “miracle market” that is China is a complete fraud filled with more than 22 FAKE Apple stores. Do you really think an economy that’s based on lies, fraud, bribery, and communism will lead the world into a new era of growth?!?! Really!?

It’s all coming down folks.

But remember… Wealth is never destroyed, it is only transferred from one person to another.

While the masses have been losing money this morning, myself, along with many EVG Members are up 12%. The worse the market does, the more money my investments make because I’m simply betting on honesty instead of fraud.


You don’t have to go down with the ship as Obama and “The Bernank” ram the “USS Amerika” into one giant iceberg after another.

Get off the fucking boat. Seriously. Just get off while you still can.

Pull your money out of their twisted game, put it into the only honest money on the planet, protect your family, and raise a glass of champagne with me as we watch the looters of the world destroy themselves.

You still have time. Gold and silver are not in bubbles, or anywhere near their top.

While the market may drop significantly, this is not the big “panic” that will send gold to its final destination of $10,000 – $20,000+

You’ll know that time has arrived when there are literally riots in the streets, and when Congress is holding panicked emergency sessions once again in order to implement a solution to what the media finally admits is the worst economic disaster in history.


While most people lost everything, more people became millionaires during the Great Depression than any other time in history.

The only deciding factor is knowledge…. Do you know where to put your money and when…?

The Elevation Group was created in order to help you turn this disaster, into the greatest opportunity of your life.

The money isn’t going away, it’s just being transferred from the uneducated, to the educated.

I’ve spent the last three years of my life planning to profit from the events that are unfolding today, and helping others do the same.

You can create life-changing wealth with us, or go down with the ship.

The choice is yours, but you are quickly running out of time.

Building Belief – It Is The Secret Only The Super Rich Know

The more I dive into the world of success the more I am presented with the concepts of beliefs. The law of attraction and the power of our own mind.

Recently I just attended another course that was strictly on this topic. They talked about the book “The Secret” and Think and Grow Rich. But they said those books were only a synopsis of the subject. Only a fraction or incomplete steps if you will.

So in today’s blog I’m going to cover the two main points that I took out of the weekend and how this has given me a totally new outlook on life and has me vibrating with excitement.

First point is teachability, none of this will work or do anything for you if your not teachable. If your not open minded, if your not willing to believe in the unbelievable. I have always prided myself on being coachable, on being open and ready to learn what others who have succeeded are willing to teach and share. But what I realized was that was only true if they spoke or taught what I wanted to hear. Do you understand what I am saying there? I only listened, I only took action on their words when it sited me and my already pre-conceived thoughts of reality. Now if I just lost you don’t worry the ah ha moment will come and it will click.

So to the first point I decided to be 100% teachable meaning, “I don’t know what I don’t know,” I am taking 100% responsibility for everything in my life. For everything in my life is of my creation. Example if I got into a car accident tomorrow, some guy came out of nowhere and rear ended me. I didn’t even see him. That event would 100% be my doing for somehow I put into the universe for that event to happen. Now many of you might be thinking why would you put into the universe to get rear ended. Remember I don’t know what I don’t know so maybe what I put into the universe was I want a new luxury car and the universe decided the best way for that to happen is destroy my existing car send me to the hospital where the doctor fixes my broken bone, we get to chatting and one thing leads to another we make a connection and he is selling a luxury car at a sweet deal. If you think that is a far fetched story than at this very moment your not teachable. Open your mind and let life in.

Now the second biggest thing I took away from the weekend was…Don’t worry about the HOW. The how things work or the how can I make it happen or the how is that possible or the how can I pay for that none of it matters. The secret only the super wealthy know is that the how doesn’t matter. If you believe in something so strongly like it has already happened, If you have a burning desire to make that dream a reality the universe will deliver and you or I are not smart enough to figure out the how so why try? Look in today’s society we are all looking for the quickest and easiest way to something. Well here is the shortcut to the life you dream of the life you DESIRE. Forget the how and just believe. We have all used this technique at some point in our lives and it has worked. The little girl who dreamt of getting married and planned out her wedding to the tinniest of details. Years later getting the exact wedding of her dreams. Did that little girl worry about the how am I going to pay for all this? No she just believed.

When I look back on my life I see exactly when I have used this technique and it’s worked on both the good and the bad.  The very first time I laid eyes on my wife I called my mom that night and said I just met the girl I would marry. 3 years later I finally kissed her and two years after that we walked the aisle.

you just have to BELIEVE have a belief so strong it turns into a burning desire. Now I can give you 3 steps into building your belief but that is a HOW and the how doesn’t matter. So instead I will tell you what I am doing.

I’m dreaming everyday and every single day my single goal is to feel good. Remove all negativity and replace with only positivity and this goes for every aspect of my life be it in my mind or my physical environment. I am building a burning desire and not worrying about the how and you know what? Since starting this new life process my income has jumped significantly.

Be teachable, and create your burning desire by building your belief and not worrying about the how. ( simple right?)

tip: If your having trouble with this and the how keeps jumping in or mister negative inside voice keeps talking, just work on feeling good, try smiling for an entire day lower your goal or desire to a level higher than your currently at but low enough that you have zero doubt it’s achievable than repeat the above process. Best of luck and as always if you need any help or have any questions please comment below. Or leave your positive stories in the comments below as well.

Away on Vacation

Hello Entrepeneurs,

Sorry for the big gap in posts but I have been away on a 3wk vacation with my family in California and Nevada. With all the hard work I have put in the last two years to become the top earner in my MLM company I had to sacrifice a few things along the way.  One of those things was gold during the summer months and the other was a decent holiday for the wife and kids and myself a time to reset and rejuvenate, and boy have we ever!!

I will post a few pics ( on facebook ) when we get back but it has been an amazing trip and the cool part was while we were away the money just kept flowing. So now I do know for a fact I am building my business the proper way because I’m not needed lol. One of the best parts was having people signup while I was away and not even know it.

The reason I’m sharing this with you is because this is exactly the feelings and experience I want for each of you. So here is my promise to you!!!

Now that I am back ( well actually in two days because right now I’m writing from my room in the MGM Grand in Vegas ) I am going to ramp it UP BIG TIME!!

I mean I’m busting with energy and ideas to take you and your business to the next level.  This month I am going to for the first time ( I usually only do these for my VIP group ) do two public FREE webinars. Showing you exactly how to build a 6 figure income from part time work. Seriously this type of passive and residual income could and WILL change your life forever.

So the family just got back from the pool and we are gonna hit the road back home, looking forward to catching up and to the crazy month ahead.

Live, Love, Laugh

Summer Blockbusters!!

It’s mid summer and the blockbusters have been coming out. Transformers 3, Harry Potter, Cars 2 for the little ones. Why do many of these huge pictures come out in June and July? Answer: Timing.

You see summer time has an aura that comes with it. That tells us we need to be out and enjoying life. Don’t waste your time inside during all this gorgeous weather. There is summer fares and festivals. Camping and fishing, outdoor concerts and ice cream. Too hot head inside a watch a movie but whatever you do get out and spend!!

How does this relate to you? How does this relate to this blog? Simple during this time you can really test the work you have been doing in your business and the work you have been doing on yourself.

Did you just decide to take the summer off of growing or working your part time business. Or did you see that the summertime allows you more time to meet new people and build your business at a faster rate? Which one did you choose?

Summer blockbuster season doesn’t just have to be out the movies. You can use this time to EXPLODE your home based business. People are more social during this time and more willing to spend. People are going to be aware their holidays are used up and wishing there was some other way to make money so life could be a holiday.

I “sacrificed” two summers in a row to elevate my home based business and when I mean sacrificed I mean I didn’t golf as much as I would have liked we skipped some camping weekends to work a fare or two. But the reward far outweighed the sacrifice because now I do whatever I want this summer and winter. now I can take the family on a 3 week trip to california and take our time because there is no rush to get back home.

You know what the funny thing is tho? This summer which I could have done more camping and more golf I haven’t wanted to. Now my core desires have changed and all I want to do is help others reach this level allow them the opportunity to make this same decision. I find it more rewarding helping others succeed this summer than hacking up a course. Can honestly say didn’t see that one coming lol.

So go out enjoy the new Harry Potter but remember to take some business cards.

Live,Love, Laugh
