I have some trees in my yard that look like they’re close to 100 feet tall, and although they have probably been on this property a lot longer than I have, it kind of worries me to have such tall trees around, as they could eventually fall down and cause a lot of damage. I want to hire a company for tree service in Asheville NC to cut down some of the trees in my yard, and in particular, I would like to get rid of some of the trees that are close to my house, as those are the ones that bother me the most and are the ones posing the most potential risk to my property.
I am not sure how much it is going to cost to get them cut down on a per tree basis, but after talking to some of my neighbors, I am pretty sure it is not going to be that cheap. But still, it is in the best interest of my family to have these trees removed and so I am pretty sure that is what I am going to do, even if it is kind of expensive to make it happen.
I want to work on getting the trees cut down closest to my house first and see how much that will cost. Actually there are a few trees that kind of look like they are starting to die near my house, and those are at the very top of my list of concerns. I do not want dead trees falling on my house. We had a winter storm knock over a lot of trees in this area about 15 years ago, and I do not want to live through another storm like that and the potential damage that it could bring to my house and my family.
People think the FDA is protecting them. It isn’t. What the FDA is doing and what the public think it’s doing are a s different as night and day.

October – Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Is A Very Profitable Month
Every October there is much hype over “finding the cancer cure.” Can someone please explain to me why it’s taking so dang long to so-called “find the cancer cure?” (Rhetorical question.) Continue reading →
A macro-nutrient that EVERYBODY needs. Beyond its well known reputation for building muscle, protein also builds new cells, tissues, enzymes, antibodies and hormones and energizes, increases stamina and supports a healthy weight!
PLANT-BASED PROTEIN VS ANIMAL PROTEIN; WHICH IS BETTER?
Plant based is becoming more and more of a popular statement in regards to ultimate health. The main problem with animal protein, just as with plant-based protein, is the source of where it’s coming from. Man nor animal can thrive when eating genetically modified plant-based food, hence is one reason why factory farmed animals are not an adequate source of nutrition for those who desire optimum health. The following video gives many more reasons… Continue reading →
Trim Empty Carbs From Your Diet While Whittling Away Your Waistline.
-Muscle & Fitness June 2014, pg 134
Lately I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen and I must say things are going well, especially after years of being told, more than once by different people, to just stay out of the kitchen (okay so I’m capable of burning water – lol). Continue reading →
The recommendations above include both Animal and Plant-Based foods. On the animal side of things, I recommend staying far away from Intensive farming, Factory farming, or any mass production of animals (and crops). Take a look at the video below to see why…they are as far removed from nature and natural systems as you can get.
The goal of Factory farming is to produce as much of a product as quickly as possible. It’s all about production…the land and the animals in these systems are strained to the utmost. Choose Sustainable/Organic farming instead; it works with nature rather than against it. Continue reading →
Trim Empty Carbs From Your Diet While Whittling Away Your Waistline.
-Muscle & Fitness June 2014, pg 126
If you knew me at all you’d know this is something amazing…me in the kitchen cooking, lol. Seriously though, I’ve been told, MORE THAN ONCE, to stay out of the kitchen. But I did it! I made something cool and actually tasted good! Lol
I’ve picked up plenty of magazines, books, articles, etc that have amazing recipes inside, but until now never seemed to prepare any of them. I’ve not been much of a “cook” in times past, but recently I’ve taken an interest in preparing meals! In my post “Will the REAL Brandye Dague Please Stand Up” I state my journey back to me.

It’s time to get back to B (me). I began blogging, over a year ago, with Empower Network. I was told over and over to blog about what I’m passionate about and tie it together with the Empower Network opportunity, BUT…
Rather than be coachable (the main ingredient to success) and Just Be B…I basically became a copy cat of what other people, in the business, were passionate about because in my head it was more “in line” with Empower Network (EN)products. Again, Dave Wood, founder of EN, and other leaders continued to teach to blog about my passion/s. Eventually, I became “burned-out” because I wasn’t staying true to myself. But now I’m getting Back To B! Continue reading →
As an entrepreneur or even in our personal lives, learning to rely on others is vital to our success.
Although, this blog series is focused on the business side I want to provide you a personal example…
My sister, who prior to April 1, 2008, was living a life of prostitution, addiction and hopelessness. I love listening to her testimony when she talks about the day she cried out to God saying, Continue reading →
Folks in the wealth system are frugal. They spend their money on things they deem fulfilling, which leads to Lifestyle Freedom.
Those who are truly wealthy are less likely to live in expensive neighborhoods or drive luxury cars. Those who accumulate wealth believe that financial independence and personal freedom are more important than displaying social status. Continue reading →

COMMUNITY, A Collective Mindset
Overnight success is a lie…the journey of an entrepreneur is lifelong and comes with many hurdles of uncertainty, setbacks and disappointments. Along with passion, determination and endurance it will take a community of support – a network of others, whose knowledge and experience can be leveraged in order to help you reach your goals.

It’s not just what YOU say about your business…what others say holds the most weight.
While your brand can be portrayed through a logo, tagline or a name, it’s the actions behind these that really speaks volume. Your brand is the result of your actions. You’e heard it said best this way:
Actions Speak Louder Than Words.
Branding yourself as RELIABLE = your success. This speaks to both business and your personal life…wherever we are, in whatever we do, we are building our brand. Do you do what you say you’re going to do when you said you’d do it? And at the price you said you’d do it for? Continue reading →
All people want to earn more money to aid in improving life. Simple things such as eating organic, upgrading to a more reliable car, allowing little Johnny to participate in both, basketball and karate. Traveling/vacationing. Providing the best care for our elderly parents.
What does lifestyle freedom look like for you?
side note: the above link introduces you to our newest AUTOMATED system which makes creating lifestyle freedom even easier!
But more times than not we find ourselves living paycheck to paycheck. Trapped in low paying jobs and/or unsatisfying careers; asking ourselves “why is it I seem to never get ahead?” Continue reading →
One’s effort can only take them as far as their understanding.
To succeed we must be willing to learn.
Today’s post is number 4 (#3 click here) in the Entrepreneurial blog series I’ve started. I’ve not yet decided when it will end as I am learning SO much from the class and I want to pass it on to my audience!
As mentioned in the 1st post, I will showcase the entrepreneurs that were interviewed for the curriculum. From gang members to foreigners to single mothers to disabled and handicapped, my hope is that their stories will inspire you to follow your dreams no matter the challenges you will face… Continue reading →
PROBLEM SOLVING…The Secret Of Recognizing Opportunity
Problems are opportunities – this is the fundamental mindset every entrepreneur must understand.
The “secret” of entrepreneurship is simply this:
By solving other people’s problems you create success for yourself.
Here’s a problem I’m passionate about and have found a solution for…
Statistics report only 20% of people love their job. The problem is, the majority of people (80%) do not. The underlying problem is people are not living to their full potential which leaves them unsatisfied and unfulfilled. Continue reading →
Over the years I have ventured into many community based business opportunities. Fortunately, I was exposed, early on, to a team of people who focused more on helping people than on money.
A true entrepreneurial mindset is focused on solving problems for other people knowing that by doing so they create success for themselves.
I love quoting Proverbs 11:25, because is matches the entrepreneurial’s mindset:
The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed;
those who help others are helped. ~The Message Bible
