Good Evening All,

What a fun activity! We have another Hare here. Ideas are always coming out of my head.

My latest venture is Fuzzy Butts Bakery and will be launched this month. My husband and I have been very active in a basset rescue of senior dogs. We don't shy away from the elderly bassets over 12 years of age. They are wonderful and we truly enjoy giving them a quiet and stress-free forever home.

I wish everyone a terrific business week!

I am a licensed wildlife rehabber. I take in sick, injured and orphaned wildlife, attempt to rehabilitate them and return them to the wild. I am a specialist when it comes to critters that are give "24 hours to live" sentences and intake serious cases like that on a frequent basis. Most go on to live a full and happy life and outlive their 24 hour sentences.

I mostly teach the kids about wildlife at schools and this year am scheduled at the County Conservation Camp to work with the kids teaching them about rehabbing.

And I think I am all of those you listed -- at one time or another. :^)

I also operate an online business designing websites and offering online advertising resources to generate income to feed my wildlife as I don't get paid to be a rehabber. http://matzos.net/te.htm

I am in visiting mode ... starting with Denise St. John!

I Love your bandanas! I will order a St. Judes for big Velvet and send you a picture with her in it. She will probably look as thrilled as your pup - Charlie is it?

And ... your Get A Date Bandana is hilarious! Have you contacted DateMyPet.com to see if you can partner with them to promote this? It would be perfect for them.

You have great products and contributing to so many great causes -- opportunities for love.

Best to you - Viveca

My Velvet is 12 years old and I have enjoyed each and every year. This is an older hound mix that I keep eyeing at my Shelter 'cause I would love to add to my pack and don't want to repeat my past ...

At one point I had a pup and a eleven year old. That is too big a difference when it comes to enjoying the walk. My old love would feel left out (or I would feel it and project it onto her!) Too much.

Yes - the older pups have so much to give and I love Basset Hounds! That is the perfect dog for my husband who likes to walk to the front yard (or back yard) and then back into the house!


P.S. Be sure and let us know when your business launches and your website is up!

I'm a turtle!

It does an accurate job of describing me too!

We have a motley pack here! GREAT!

Turtles are wonderful (well we all are.)

Turtles see what's around the corner - they can foresee problems before they occur. Hares never see problems - can't imagine any of their wonderful ideas not working out until .... yikes!

Squirrels are the doers - they implement the ideas.

Owls are the ones who can look at a stack of ideas and choose the pick of the litter.

It takes all of us to make a balanced successful pack.

If you haven't yet taken the quiz, please do so. Next week we' discuss how this information is vital to our pack and personal success.

I meant to explain why I started this thread last week and it's significance to us as a group ... that was before I caught the flu. Well there is not time like the present ...

I came across this information 5-6-7 years ago. It fascinated me AND gave my personal and professional life new direction. Let me explain why as briefly as possible.

This quiz easily and effortlessly identifies 4 distinct personality types that are critical towards the success of any business, group or enterprise.

Hares - the "Idea" people.  

Squirrels - the "Doers" who follow through on the ideas.

Owls - ability to pick the best idea out of the litter

Turtles - ability to foresee the bumps in the road. Identify the problems so they can be handled before they take you down.

Now imagine you have a business with 4 people. If you have 4 hares you will have tons of ideas but no follow through because they can't pick best idea, won't foresee the bumps and hate detail work. This group will exhaust itself and implode.

Imagine you have 4 squirrels. They will keep doing what they are doing for lack of a better idea, literally.

Owls need the ideas from the Hares to pick the best one, the foresight of the turtles with the squirrels to follow through.

Now do you see why this is so important?

Here's a concrete example. Once I had the great idea to sell on eBay. Then I had to do all the "tasks" to list my product (bleh.) Then I sold it. "It" was a poster. Then I had to find the shipping tube and send it out to the buyer. This took me almost ten days! I ended up having to send 2 posters to make up for taking so long! That was the end of eBay for me! I am 100% HARE - can you see why this business wouldn't work for me? I hated everything about it except for the idea!

Take a moment NOW to look at your business team. Have everyone on it take the quiz and look at the results. Are there blanks? If so you MUST fill them in. If not -- someone, maybe you, is doing something they HATE to do and that is costing you money, passion, health and happiness.

With a balanced team you will not only have more success but you will be doing, like the quiz asks, "what you love to do."

Haven't taken the quiz yet? Come on ... there's no trick to this:http://www.oneminutemillionaire.com/tools/hots.asp

(On a personal note - my husband is an "owl/squirrel" blend and I am "100% Hare." Now ... how do you suppose we are with money? I have great ideas (a very thick folder) on where to spend it - he picks the best "ones" and follows through! We would be 100% BROKE! without our turtles - our accountant and the teachings of Dave Ramsey! This info also helps us be easier on each other - we are who we are and we can't be what we're not.)

Next week I will share how I am using this information in my business team (and please do likewise.)

Ok just a little behind. Just took the test and I'm a 'hare'. It's just a quick version of the Meyers=Briggs test, which is a personality test.
