Amaze Your Lover – 16 Romantic Ideas To Keep Them Happy

by: Jessica Kihara
                                     <span class="style2">Some people have a natural ability to romance the oppposite sex and others seem like they don't even know what it means. However, everyone should know how to make their partner's heart melt because it's one of the finest acts of seduction.<br /><br /><br />For Your Wife/Girlfriend:<br /><br />1. Kidnap her for a surprise picnic. Plan your rendevous for the weekend or when you both have a free day. Make sure she doesn't have any plans. Then you tell her to come with you to the supermarket or something along those lines. Give her time to get ready, get in the car, and pick up some take-out food. Then head to a nice empty beach or park and explain to her that you're having a romantic getaway!<br /><br />2. Write her a poem. If this is not your thing, there are lots of places to get some inspiration. Try a poetry book, romantic song, etc. Just don't repeat anything word for word because it may sound familiar to her and she'll know you faked it.<br /><br />3. Cook her a delicious meal, light some candles, dim the lights and CLEAN the house! When she gets home, she'll be speechless.<br /><br />4. Hold her hand everytime you go out. If this isn't possible (because one of you is carrying a baby or pushing a shopping cart) then make sure to maintain some form of physical contact. This will make her feel like you're proud to be with her and can't keep your hands off her!<br /><br />5. Give her a spa like treat. Fill your tub with warm water then add some milk and honey. Invite her in, give a a nice scrub down, then sit behind her and give her a firm yet gentle scalp massage.<br /><br />6. Plan a photography session. Let your wife or girlfriend get all dolled up for you, then take pictures of her that you'll keep in your wallet, office, or car. Tell her that she's beautiful and that she takes amazing pictures.<br /><br />7. Get up a few minutes before her one day and write a simple "I Love You" on a post-it. Stick the post-it on the bathroom mirror or someplace she'll be sure to see it. This is guaranteed to make her feel special and lovey-dovey! If you wan't to expand on this idea, you can leave sweet little notes for her in so many other places too!<br /><br />8. If you're an artist, take inspiration from Titanic and draw, paint, or sculpt your lover. You'll get the best resluts if your masterpiece actually looks good but if not, tell her you could never create something as beautiful as her.<br /><br /><br />For Your Husband/Boyfriend:<br /><br />1. After a hard day at work, give your man an exquisite back massage. Use some aromatheraoy massage oil to relax and soothe him.<br /><br />2. Wear lingerie. This might not seem like the most romantic thing to do, but he will absolutely love it. He will definitely appreciate the effort you made and it'll seem super-romantic to him!<br /><br />3. If your lover shaves his face, you do it for him. Play some romantic music, lather him up, and use slow, gentle strokes to shave him. DO NOT cut or nick him! Just take your time and he'll feel satisfied and taken care of.<br /><br />4. Take some time out to just look into each other's eyes. Appreciate his presence, his scent, and his warmth. If you feel like kissing him, go for it!<br /><br />5. Pretend to need him. Men like to be the ones to protect you, so tell him you get scared when he's not around or that you feel safe with him there.<br /><br />6. Cuddle him unexpectedly. Warning - do this when you two are completely alone so that he won't feel uncomfortable or embarassed. To keep him happy, stop before he feels crowded. I suggest you hold him for about 5-6 minutes, then give him some space.<br /><br />7. Buy him tickets to a football or basketball game that you know he wants to see. To keep things romantic, go with him and cheer for his team!<br /><br />8. Cook him a huge feast, let him stuff himself, then you load the dishes in the dish washer while he rests. When you're done, sit near him and stroke his arms while whispering sweet nothings in his ear.<br /><br /><br />These are great tips that you can use anytime. Good for special occassions such as anniversaries or when you just want your partner to feel extra special. Don't ever let your significant other forget how much you care. Keep them feeling warm and fuzzy and they'll treat you so much better!<br /></span>

AFFILIATE PROGRAMS…WHO’S REALLY MAKING THE MONEY?

by: Gillian Tarawhiti

                                     <span class="style2">AFFILIATE PROGRAMS...WHO'S REALLY MAKING THE MONEY?<br />By Gillian Tarawhiti<br />Community Training Centre<br />http://www.millionairerippleeffect.com<br /><br />There will be a million and one affiliates out there who will tell you that the affiliate program they promote is going to be the best one for you.<br /><br />But have you considered who is really making the money and who gains the most out of affiliate programs.<br /><br />Let's take a step back and look at the AFFILIATE.<br /><br />What exactly is the role of the affilate?<br /><br />* The sole purpose of the affiliate is to PROMOTE the product and/or service<br /><br />What are the benefits of being an affiliate?<br /><br />* Get paid a minimal commission that is regulated by the owner of the product/service<br /><br />In short, As an affiliate it is your responsibility to make someone else rich whilst doing all the hard work. You take on the expenses of advertising, you are the one who usually misses out on subscribers if you haven't first made them your client before they buy the product/service you are promoting.<br /><br />And all this for what??? Maybe $20 per sale if you are really, really lucky.<br /><br />You also need to remember that when you are an affiliate, YOU are not the only person promoting that very same product/service.<br /><br />So what will make your offer any different to someone else who is promoting the exact same product, usually using the same sales technique, offering it at the same price.<br /><br />To be in the top 5%, which is the amount of affiliates who make more than $100.00 per month, you need to first have a really good, clean, targeted subscribers list of more than 50,000 subscribers, know exactly how to gain targeted traffic, and have a huge advertising budget.<br /><br />For the other 95%, the only way you are going to make alot of money from and affiliate program is to OWN YOUR OWN.<br /><br />It really isn't as hard as you might think to set up.<br /><br />So in conclusion, the best AFFILIATE PROGRAM, obviously is the one you OWN.</span>

Realism vs. Optimism in the Business Plan

Realism vs. Optimism in the Business Plan

by: Dave Lavinsky

The most important function of a business plan is to create interest among investors so that they write a check. In achieving this goal, business plan writers are often challenged by determining the proper level of optimism in their plan. That is, they must create a compelling story to investors while maintaining credibility.

Optimism shows investors that a company is confident about the market opportunity, its ability to execute on the opportunity, etc. Over-optimism, however, leads investors to believe that the management team does not fully understand the opportunity or the tough road ahead. As such, business plans must be sure to limit over-optimism and show investors they are realistic and credible.

Realism, the opposite of over-optimism, should be used in business plans to portray sobriety and credibility to investors. Realism should manifest itself in management team bios that tell the actual accomplishments of managers, rather than fluff. It should manifest itself in credible market forecasts and sober assumptions of the company’s growth.

While business plans must excite investors so they take action, if they are too optimistic, investors will discount their merit. Conversely, if they are too sober, investors may not feel they will get an adequate return on their investment. As such, business plans should present a compelling, optimistic picture, but continuously refer to hard facts and realistic assumptions to build credibility and genuine excitement
