Hello, Everyone,

I'm Phyllis-Joy -but you can call me PJ. I'm new to the Free Spirit Network. It caught my interest, seems like an exciting place to be. I'm a fitness trainer working on becoming a life style coach. I started my teleclasses in October. I'm just starting to adjust to the phone classes. It was pretty strange at first. Anyway, my website has been going thru many changes of late when I realized I wasn't exactly "linking" to the rest of the world according to the popular search engines. All of you computer - website savy people out there- know what I mean, I'm sure. Anyway, I'm looking forward to unveiling my updated website version very shortly. Of course it caused a few frustrating moments with my boyfriend - who is much more technical than I am. Anyhow, I think all is O.K.
Looking forward to chatting with more of my fellow members, and getting into some exciting new topics. Here is my quote which I created a few years ago.

Everything we experience in life is never wasted. It is just a stepping stone or a pathway to something greater.
Phyllis-Joy (PJ) Feel free to stop by and sign my guest book.

Hi Lasse,

I made a mistake joining FREE SPIRITS, I thought I would be getting free whiskey but it seems to be somewhere to mention your favourite quote,so here it is and it is attributed to Winston Churchill:

"A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty."

Hi all!

This network sounded and looked interesting, so I was compelled to join.

Looking forward to the discussions!

Oh, and Simon's Churchill quote above reminded me of another one I like from him.

have neither.” -- Winston Churchill, 1940

Hi Everyone!

I am in sales/business development. I work for Logical Imagination, www.logicalimagination.com, full time. We provide software training, software development, and web site design.

In my "spare time", my husband and I are independent consultants for Wine Shop at Home. Our web site is www.homewineshop.com. We love wine and were looking for something fun to do to make an extra money, so this fits perfectly for us. We've been consultants for just one week, in fact, our web site just went live last night.

My favorite quote is by Maya Angelou, "When you Know better, you Do better." In other words, don't beat yourself up for doing something in the past. Now that you have learned from your mistakes, you do things "better".

Hello everyone,

Here’s an intro from a displaced limey. My name’s Jonathan and I’m a 34-year old interim CEO (high-tech) originally from England but now settled in sunny San Diego, California. I’ve not got around to doing anything with my profile yet but please drop by my personal website at:


This is my ‘shop window’ which I threw together in the hope of shortening the transition period between engagements. I would be much obliged for any critical feedback.

I love travel, reading, writing, fine wine, and until recently, flying (after nearly killing myself and the occupants of an In-N-Out-Burger I decided to find a different pursuit. Pressing wild flowers, perhaps. The moral of this story is that if you need a licensed mechanic to rebuild an aircraft engine, make sure you find one that DOESN’T have a crack-cocaine problem).

My focus these days is finding a good fit with a troubled, venture-backed company that needs a fix-it guy. If anyone knows of any opportunities there’s a finder’s fee . . .

Hello Everyone!

"Free Spirits" Great place so far. Thanks for inviting me to your network.

I'm Bizymommie! Mom of a 3 & 4 yr. old amped free spirited kids. Guess they got that trait from dear old mom.

I am currently doing multitask work online as an entrepreneur/infopreneur, niche marketer and web designer. There's too much that I want to do online, just not enough time in a day or night. It's all about having fun doing what I most enjoy is the bottomline.

Come see my work at home businesss: http://www.bizymommie.ws

I enjoy networking and meeting people around the world globally. It sure has been an adventure and definitely enriched my mind.

Hi FreeSpirits,

That's me on the left and my friend Claire from Singapore on the right. I'm in my 6th year of marketing financial education online. I joined the trend before Peter Drucker published a story in Forbes magazine several years ago. It's a hot trend associated with information marketing and I feel fortunate to be working in the international marketplace.

My favorite quote comes from a new friend, Richard Friesen, from Leadership Magnetics in California.

"There is a path to powerful leadership. It is radical, personal and precise."

I've spent the better part of my life mastering my mind set and taking myself to the next level of achievement, enjoyment and engagement in life.

I look forward to meeting genuine FreeSpirits from this elegant forum!

Warm regards,
Patricia Winston

Hello everyone,

Glad to be here. My name is Cedric Reynolds (aka The Entrepreneurial Pastor). I've been on the Ryze network since April and been having a ball. I'm happily married to Barbara (my sweeeeeet heart) for 20 years as of October 19, 2005. We have a son 19 Cedric James who's in his second year of college. We live in the beautiful city of Chino Hills. I've been pastoring CentrePoint Christian Fellowship since June 1994 and I supervise 23 Foursquare churches in Sunny Southern California.

Here's why I'm on Ryze:

1. To build a massive network of friends and business associates.

2. To connect my friends and business associates of like interests together.

3. To share my some remarkable products with people who are looking for a different & possibly better way to consume nutritional supplements.

4. To introduce a stand alone network marketing business opportunity to individuals who are looking to learn the right way to build a long lasting business.

5. And although this is last on my list, it is first in my heart - To introduce those seeking a new way to live to the most wonderful friend I have. Jesus Christ!

That's a brief. If there is anyway I can help you connect with one of my special friends or business associates just shoot me a private message.

Hi my name is manirangan, i have been hooked to this network for the past 3 months, i am a entreprenuer and running a successful software firm from bangalore, india.Initially my idea was to build a good network of friends who can help each other on professional basis. I thought this was a good idea to build my business and network.

The network has not only turned to be a good source of business prospecting(i got couple of good leads for my business), but also a tremendous source of information for chracter building.

The truth is all of us need to network irrespective of our backgrounds, business..and this will truly lead to making some very good friends and also makes very good business sense.

Hi Lasse and everyone here :D

I actually did go through every one of the many intros in this string here (also noted another "Rebecca" introduced just before me ;-)) - and its awesome to see so many beautiful people with so many things to offer to the world :D... honestly it was quite over-whelming.... this is the first network I'm seeing that has such a comprehensive introduction set and actually a well-set protocol for that too... hats off to Lasse on that - for moderating this :)

I'm Rebecca, from Mumbai in India. I'm part of the core research group of a Lab focusing on the "methods of knowledge". Won't go into more complex details... but anyone who wants to check out more can go to my Ryze Page itself... anyone wanting to know even more can send me a private message... won't bore the rest with it all ;-)

Looking forward to conversations with all of you on this network...

That's a very powerful statement:

"Do or do not...there is no 'try'."

We can 'try' to do things, but in the mindset we are "trying" automatically sets us up for 'failure'.

Maybe we should say, "I AM doing it and it's working."

Just a simple adjustment in thinking, right?

Hello all you free spirits: Thank you Lassie for inviting me to a very interesting world of friends. 1M friends is a great goal to have, after all if you don't have friends you don't have anything.

I'm Patricia from Mississippi. I'm an Independent beauty consultant with Mary Kay Cosmetics and owner of a formalwear shop. I changed careers completely after the free spirit inside me decided it was long enough in the corporate world. Wow, what a difference. It is great to meet so many people who share their lives rather than deal with those who constantly grip and do nothing to change their situtation.

I have a couple quotes: Reach for the moon and if you fail, you will be among the stars!

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope"

Free spirits are free because of the promises that God hath given us.

I look forward to networking with this group!

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.

We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time.

We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life... " Unknown

Dave and Margaret Duncan

We are David and Margaret Duncan. We are always looking for inspiration and motivation, this group sounds as if it has very "like-minded" people in it. We look forward to sharing inspiration and motivation with others here.

We are both in our mid-40's. We enjoy many interests like pets, camping, fishing, motorcyles, reading, and taking walks together. We are also "Empty-nesters" at this young age with all three of our children on their own. After years of raising children, it is kind of strange. Yet, we are adjusting pretty well. We still have our pets (our dog, Beano and the cats, Akeela and Zephyer) at home, so the house is never really empty! Also, the children don't live that far away, so we can still see them often. Taking on new "identity" takes some time. But, we are enjoying this extra freedom again.

As for our career and business interests. I (David) am a Baker by trade. Margaret is an Executive Administrative Assistant. We also have a home-based business, so we keep fairly busy. We wish everyone here much success and invite everyone to stop by and say hello. As for quotes, we have many favorites, but here is a special one.

Hi everyone and thanks for the invitation Lasse!

My name is Chris Jordan and I am based in the UK, where I am working as a Humanitarian Entrepreneur with the Nourish the Children Initiative, alongside my Network Marketing business with NSE.

I live in a small town about 125 miles from London in the East Midlands, with my partner Wendy and her daughter Amelia - we have 4 cats and a few tropical fish!

My main interest is the fairly new arena of Social and Humanitarian Entrepreneurship, through which I am making a lot of new friends as we strive to use the power and motivations of business to solve various problems in the world.

Our particular initiative is feeding children with NOURISHING food in malawi, where we have constructed a plant which we have since donated to the local people, giving them a guaranteed income and a sustainable business for their community.

Well that's me - if you'd like to say hi or learn more about NTC (Nourish the Children) and how you could join in then let me know.

Thanks for inviting me in!

The idea of collecting and sharing success stories posted by Lasse got my attention and admiration. I visited his page, got an invite to join Free Spirits and here I am!

You are reading about Farrukh, a copywriter by profession, a poet by temperament, and a coffee addict thanks to the Nescafe machine in the office kitchen.

For more than 8 years, I have written ads and content for radio, press and the web. Now I am flirting with the thought of something more substantial like journalism or documentary films. Which means more cups of coffee. Thick, black and steaming!

I look forward to interacting and learning more from all of you and becoming a better person in the process.

Thank you for reading through and have a nice day.

Nov 27, 2005 2:47 pmre: I N T R O D U C T I O N thread... Introduce yourself here#

Hello everyone - I am a free spirit, and then some! I'm incredibly intuitive and intend to make a living at it. The intuition expresses itself in many different ways. I've been trying to fit it into the rest of the world's "box", asking for help, assuming I need to learn something, trying not to step on anybody's toes, but it's finally hit me this Thanksgiving weekend that my inner wisdom knows what to do already, so I just have to follow that. Which is what I want to do anyway. It's a "duh!" moment for me.

With that I'd like to show you what I can do. There is somebody reading this thread that has recently been given something to do with daisies. This has been given with pure loving intent, although there may be some personality differences. Might be time to clarify which is most important to the giver - the personality, or the love behind it. Go to a movie that makes you laugh together. Something like Chicken Little.

That may sound general, but the person that it pertains to will know exactly what I mean. And sometimes it's more than one person.

I've spent my life under a spell of perfectionism, so I have decided it's okay if my readings are a little fuzzy and obscure at times. My inner wise woman knows exactly what she's doing and I trust her. It's time to lighten up with it.

So I am ...

Hello, and thanks to Lasse for inviting me to this awesome network!
I am Kay Butler, of NH, USA and have worked since 1996 as a Licensed Massage Therapist (day spa, beauty salons, various events and home visits using Chair/Table). I've been a spiritual, Christian Catholic, single lady with two beautiful cats (my kids!).
Online, I've attempted many various mlm type programs without great results so far. My intention is now geared toward more divine guidance, to attract like-minded people to network with, to draw abundance and prosperity to me and those who work with me. My newest endeavor is an easy prosperity activity called Give1Get4 that I hope people are being attracted to. My sponsor has been able to receive over $7000 within a couple of months of joining her team. It is for caring people who enjoy sharing and pledging gifts - very simple!
I look forward to networking and joining discussions in this cool network. It is similar to Spiritual Entrepreneur Today network, hosted by Linda Miller, another wise, spiritual lady.

One of many quotes that I like:
"Gratitude brings your whole mind into closer harmony with the creative energies of the universe..." Wallace Wattles, author of Science of Getting Rich

Hi Subhash and all,
Thank you for your e-mail.
I'm on my personal growth journey deeply since 1998.
I'm working as a personal growth counselor in Istanbul and also i'm a Past Life Regression Therapy trainee in UK in "Past Life Regression Academy".www.regressionacademy.com
Every past life regression comes always with "big learnings/awareness" for me.

I'm organizing this training in Istanbul with my trainer Andy Tomlinson.

Past Live Therapy is so new in Turkey. I think in India people naturally believe in past lives.
I always wanted to come to India. My husband and i are coming to Delhi in March 2006 for "Past Life World Congress".www.regressioncongress.org
I'm so excited about that.

I appreciate what you're doing with hopeless people.
I wonder to know how you developed your skills about past life therapy?

Hi I am new here and thought to say hello to all the fellow free spirits out there. I have 3 children and a husband I speak of on my page. I am so multi faceted that I honestly have trouble saying what I am good at. I do have a passion for singing and one day hope to record. For now I am in the process of trying to raise funds for my oldest son who is 14 and was choosen to be a US student ambassador and will hopefully get to tour six European countries this summer. I am terrible about fundraising and asking for money, so this is a new challange. My kids are the center of my life as a stay at home mom, not totally by choice as I was hit by a drunk driver in 1993 and really worked hard at getting to be as normal as I can, I look ok and most would never know the suffering I went thru and still go thru unless it is a bad day and I have trouble hidding that fact.
I love to be at home and do home education but once the older two out smarted me, I put them into a cyber school. I now work with my autistic son who it wouldnt surprise me a bit if he checked out perfectly normal in a few years he has come so far. He is so smart and always amazing me.
My husband is also on Ryze under the pen name of Cempie,
he and I enjoy meeting new ppl and friends so do stop by say hello and I will post again after getting to read some new post. I am a bit backed up with email and things due to a death in the family and some other family issues and also being sick, now my husband is hobbling on crutches and has a bad torn ligament in the ankle.
Never a good time of year for sickness or injury requring time off. Murphy must have this one planned. LOL.

Hi all ~

Just joined Ryze today and the Free Spirits board as well. My wife and I are entrepreneurs who live life to the fullest here in Colorado. We enjoy too much to list here but you can check out our profile page and our web site below.

We are also part of a greater team of entrepreneurs that teaches others to generate a CEO-level income, without the stress. We do this part time from home so we can continue to leverage our time and income into multiple streams of income.

The keys to wealth:
1> leverage
2> a proven system
3> support and training

In the last 12 months, we've been to: California (twice), Cancun (would've been twice but Hurricane Wilma had something to say about it), Houston & Dallas, Puerto Rico, Vancouver & Whistler, BC and Phoenix (twice). Oh, and did we mention, we were generating revenue while on these trips.

Our team of like-minded individuals chooses the path of personal development and this is the main reason for our success.

“Do you truly feel that you deserve wealth? What is your ability to act in spite of fear, in spite of worry, in spite of inconvenience, in spite of discomfort? Can you act when you’re not in the mood? The fact is that your character, your thinking, and your beliefs are a critical part of what determines the level of your success. Your income can grow only to the extent you do!”

- T. Harv Eker, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind

If you'd like to join us on this path and you're a 3%'er (the other 97% just talk about gettin' it done), check this out:


Choose success,

I am also a consultant to non-profits who want to work in the educational setting. Currently, I am working with several non-profits that are hoping to make a critical impact on the Minneapolis Public School schools and children in preventing chemical abuse among students. It is a fun and rewarding experience.
I love travel. I try for 3 trips a year (this year Mexico twice, Alaska - my 50th state! and England) and sometimes manage to squeeze one or two more in. I would love to explore the idea of having my trips pay for themselves by combining business with pleasure.
I look forward to getting to know more about the people in this network.

My name is Pixi.
I saw the FREE SPIRITS network listed on a ryze aquaintance's list of networks and thought I'd stop by and check it out.
I consider myself as someone who is a FREE SPIRIT and always in pursuit of more freedom for myself and others.

My favorite quote:
"You were brought into this world from that which percieved you as an expression of beauty. It couldn't have done so if it thought you to be otherwise, for if it has the power to create; it also possesses the power not to do so. The choice to do so is predicated on the supposition that you're an expression of loving beauty. This is true for everything and everyone that emanates from the power of intention."

Thanks Lasse for letting us know about this fast growing network.

It's a pleasure to see so many creative and positive people in here and at Ryze.

I am posting an intro on behalf of myself and Mayura Sandeep. Both of us are writers and we have founded and moderate Creative Majlis - a Ryze network that brings together creative people from around the world to contribute their talent for social causes.

Personally I have great admiration for Lasse and I have a feeling that his dream of having a million friends is going to happen soon.

It's great to be a part of Free Spirits ad we wish it and its members the best.

Hi Everyone!

I'm new here too, as are many people. I was invited over to Ryze by Wohali Ugidali (some of you may know him as Eaglefeather) and this particular forum by Lasse. Thanks to both!! Wohali told me there were great people in FREE SPIRITS, he was right! I'm in very good company here.

I'm a divorced mother of 3 great kids, all grown now. I have 7 grandchildren ranging in ages from 14 to 2 years old. I grew up as a Navy brat as my dad was a career Navy man. My favorite place to live was in Japan. I've worked in Welfare for 20 years in two different states. I'm a cancer survivor.

The winter of 2004 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, (finally after everything else was eliminated) and discovered Emu Oil helped me (as well as my pain from Arthritis). I became great friends with the woman who introduced me to Emu Oil, and she encouraged me to start my own business as well. Emu Oil Naturally went live 5/23/05 on a shoestring budget. I now do not have to support Emu Oil Naturally anymore, the website is supporting itself!

I have recently joined the Fruta Vida team too. Emu Oil & Fruta Vida compliment each other both in health & in business.

I look forward to getting to know many people here,

who opened the door showing many of us how to use the edit part
of our home page to showcase our or our friends product lines.

Wohali loves my sig. other June's glacial clay so much he suggested I put it up on my Ryhze Page.

Yes my friend Eaglefeather, the page works.

I can be shy at times too....so that won't bother me. People do have lives after all as well.

Here's one of my favorite quotes: "A negative attitude is like a flat tire. You're not going anywhere unless you change it."

Greetings from an Eldermystic

I first opened up to metaphysical inquiry and practice in 1960. Been down a lot of roads since then.

I am a co-founder of Angels of Light Fellowship, http://angelsoflightfellowship.org, and at http://auriclight.com I have a second website for Auric Expressions with a variety of metaphysical information.

I publish MYSTIC MEANINGS monthly at Auric Expressions and publish SOVEREIGN SELF quarterly at Angels of Light Fellowship, both are free online.

Occassionally, my head fills with words that hang in there until I write them down. I call these Whispers. The 'Angels of Light' Whisper is on my Ryze Home Page. You can read more Whispers in the Author’s section of Auric Expressions.

I give an open invitation to anyone who would like to contribute articles, poetry, music, or artwork for consideration to be published in MYSTIC MEANINGS. The guidelines are on the last page of the latest issue. Email editor@auriclight.com for submissions.

Hi Amanda and Everyone,

Nice to meet you here at Free Spirits. Finally got a new pic on my page. How do you like it? Over the weekend, I got the scanner and computer speaking the same language (major accomplishment, I think). One of the benefits of being on Ryze is that is stretches my computer technical skills. It creates new problems for which I am discovering new solutions with the help of the more experienced pros we have. So, it's a real learning curve.

However, I'm still curious about a couple of things. How do we get the larger size pic for the posts and what does lol stand for?

Have a great week,

My name is Lajon Webb and I'm connecting with all of you from my home-office in Fairfield, California which is in the San Francisco, California Bay Area! I'm working with a group of entrepreneurs Mr. Randy Gage, Mr. Eric Worre, and Mr. Randy Schroeder. We're working on a project that we want to expand globally and we're looking for leaders who want to develop WIN-WIN, full of integrity and ethic relationships with other leaders.

Here is some information on our project. Please review it in its entirety, so that you'll be able to discern whether the people you already know and those that you meet will be a great lead for me. Please PM your business information at lajon@comcast.net and I will do the same thing for you.

The Brainwave
Late in 2004, Glen Jensen had an idea—a moment of pure inspiration.
Glen is what you might call a visionary. Over 18 years in the network marketing industry–working his way up from customer service through international sales to the executive suite–Glen has always had a sense for what people want and how they want to get it. He turns new concepts and strategies over in his mind, finding better ways to do things. And as he lay awake in the wee hours of a chilly November morning back in 2004, he began thinking about...gel.

Athletes use gels to pound carbs right before competition or in the middle of a race. What if anyone could pound nutritional supplements in the same way—when it's most convenient for them? Could a highly accessible delivery system like the one athletes use be versatile enough to work with other consumable products?

The answer launched a powerful new delivery mechanism called Suspension Gel Technology.

We have set-up a very simple system that anyone can duplicate. Please call (877) 248-7063 and then go to http://www.ageldvd.com and review the information in its entirety. Then let's talk just as soon as you're done.

Good luck in living your dreams!

Have an AWESOME day and May God richly bless you!

Most people are alive but not really living because they have sick, naked cells that cannot communicate with each other. If you are one of those folks who are sick and tired of being sick and tired, do something about it now.

One good reason for doing the right thing today is tomorrow.

That certainly applies to your health. You only have one body.

Hi! This is Ken Stewart! (There are 4 of us in the MLM industry with the same name! LOL..Please, no more-we don't need a 5th as people often confuse me with one of the other's, like the one from Amway..)

My partner and I have over 50 years of experience in the MLM industry, having been early pioneers of the binary pay plan for the MLM industry and having built some of the largest, fastest growing, and most successful groups in network marketing history! (in our past 2 main companies we had combined groups of more than 500,000 distributors and sales of more than $1.5 billion.)

We're now involved in helping a 3 year old division of a 14 year old billion dollar company expand internationally into 43 countries with a revolutionary breakthrough recently featured in Esquire magazine and recommended by leading doctors whose principal ingredient was discovered in India over 400 years ago.

Now pre-launching in India, which will be the biggest and most lucrative market in the world for network marketing over the next 10 years.

Now here' an offer you can't refuse! How would you like to have everyone we sponsor in any of 43 countries go below you? Better yet, how would you like to have India below you, all of which would put you halfway home to up to $25,000 a WEEK in our 2 team revenue share pay plan? Now you can, but you must act fast!

Can you build one leg? If so, we need to talk! If you have internatonal contacts, especially in Europe, Asia, and India, we need to talk!

We have a position available in our powerline for a MLM leader with a proven track record-get positioned on top of the India team and everyone we sponsor in any of 43 countries goes below you! This position is worth up to $25,000 a WEEK or more! Who wants it?

You could put all of your ocntacts in one team and have India and all the people we sponsor in your second team and you'd be on your way to a lucrative weekly and monthly income!

Timing and positioning is everything in our business! If you'd like to be at the top for a change, get in touch with us as India launches shortly.

Hi all y'all!

I am a ICT architect (Information and Communications Technology) by trade, but a philosopher, innovator, and endlessly curious soul by nature. Life is a grand adventure!

Of late I have been building yurts with my oldest grandson. First a model, then a playhouse. Now its wrestling with options to replace an old horse stable with a yurt of their own.

Between projects, I am involved with the practical aspects of monorails for America, low cost community housing, and organic gardening.

"What then is insanity, but sanity of the insane? And sanity, but insane insanity." KMH 1972

It remains a crazy world!

A free spirit for many years now. In fact, keeping it that way seems to have become a single minded endeavor!

A jack of many trades, and specialist in some, it helps to keep the home fire burning.

Cheers! Glad to be here.
