What is meant by ‘multiple income streams?’

And why do we need them?

Having more than one source of income is a good idea whether you have a job or are in business. Both can change or disappear overnight. That applies to online and network marketing businesses too. I know several successful network marketers whose company and (big) incomes have shut down, without warning. And sadly, we probably all know of big companies and small businesses that have drowned under the pandemic.

Clearly a backup plan or additional source of income is essential, even for the very successful. So, what are the options:

  • investments – stock market etc.
  • property
  • savings
  • pensions, annuities etc
  • side business, passive income.

And any other ideas you can think of!

So do you have some or all of these? Most wealthy people do. Obviously, some of these options, most in fact, need some kind of investment, and some may be quite risky. Generally, the higher the rewards, the higher the risk. If you’re not ready to make any kind of investment, then it’s definitely got to be some kind of extra income or side business. And if your existing commitments take up all your time, then it needs to be something that will need little time or money to get going.

Once it’s up and running, start saving as soon as possible, even a small sum, in order to invest in some of the other options and get multiple income streams and financial security.

I am fortunate enough to have more than one income stream, but I’m always looking for something new and interesting since I took a step back from my network marketing business. And I’ve found a couple of interesting opportunities which make the most out of the high value of data, especially browsing and shopping data. Up till now, all the value of that data has stayed with the big tech companies, but now there’s a chance for consumers to get some of that value for themselves, with no investment and no selling involved.

It should be a nice little earner (as we say in the UK!).

Why is Marine Collagen causing such a stir in beauty circles?

First of all, what is collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body and it’s one of the main building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. In fact, it makes up about 80% of skin. It’s also found in many other body parts, including blood vessels, corneas, and teeth.

You can think of it as the “glue” that holds all these things together. In fact, the word comes from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue.

In particular, it gives your skin elasticity and hydration, and helps prevent the signs of aging.

But you start to lose collagen as early as your twenties. Then, you lose about 1% a year – not too bad. But by the time you reach your thirties, it can be as much as 30%. Not so good, is it?

This causes drier skin and more wrinkles (as well as possible health issues affecting your heart, bones, joints and tendons).

So what can you do about this?

First, you can avoid the following:

  • Sugar and refined carbs
  • Too much sun
  • Smoking

As they all damage collagen.

Second, you can take a collagen supplement. Eating collagen-rich food such as bone broth doesn’t seem to make a big difference, but extra collagen will:

  • strengthen bones and joints
  • reduce wrinkles
  • help with arthritis
  • boost your metabolism
  • strengthen your hair and nails
  • help with weight loss (by helping you feel full).

So Forever Living has produced a fantastic new supplement which is collagen in a highly concentrated liquid formula that uses a scientifically advanced marine collagen base. This is more easily broken down and absorbed by your body when compared to other forms.

And where some collagen supplements taste vile (yes, they do!), this has a sharp berry flavour. And, as well as the collagen, it contains black pepper extract, goji berries and green tea extract, along with vitamins C and A which contribute to normal formation of collagen in the body. Zinc and biotin also play a role in the maintenance of skin, bones, hair and nails. All that in easy and convenient 15ml sachets perfect for taking with you on the go!

It’s brilliant, it’s new and it’s here:


Are you getting enough vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 plays a vital role in the production of your red blood cells and DNA, as well as the proper functioning of your nervous system. It is naturally found in animal foods, including meats, fish, poultry, eggs and dairy. And it can be found in products fortified with B12, such as some varieties of bread and plant-based milk.

Unfortunately, B12 deficiency is quite common. You’re at risk of deficiency if you don’t get enough from your diet or aren’t able to absorb enough from the food you eat.

Those most at risk of a B12 deficiency are:

  • The elderly
  • Those who’ve had surgery that removes the part of the bowel that absorbs B12
  • People on the drug metformin for diabetes
  • People following a strict vegan diet
  • Those taking long-term antacid drugs for heartburn

But symptoms of a vitamin B12 deficiency can take years to show up, and diagnosing it can be complex. Here are 9 signs and symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency:

1. Pale or Jaundiced Skin

People with a B12 deficiency often look pale or have a slight yellow tinge to the skin and whites of the eyes, a condition known as jaundice.

2. Weakness and Fatigue

Weakness and fatigue are common symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency.

This is because your body doesn’t have enough vitamin B12 to make red blood cells, which transport oxygen throughout your body. So you can’t efficiently transport oxygen to your body’s cells, making you feel tired and weak.

3. Sensations of Pins and Needles

Nerve damage is one of the more serious side effects of a long-term B12 deficiency. Your nerves are surrounded by a substance called myelin. This protects and insulates them.

Without B12, myelin is produced differently, and your nervous system isn’t able to function properly. Pins and needles in your hands and feet is one common sign of this.

4. Changes to Mobility

If untreated, the damage to your nervous system caused by a B12 deficiency could cause changes to the way you walk and move and affect your balance.

5. Glossitis and Mouth Ulcers

Glossitis is a term used to describe an inflamed tongue. If you have glossitis, your tongue changes color and shape, making it painful, red and swollen. You can also get mouth ulcers and pins and needles in the mouth.

6. Breathlessness and Dizziness

If you become anemic due to a B12 deficiency, you may feel short of breath and a bit dizzy, especially when you exert yourself. This is because your body lacks the red blood cells it needs to get enough oxygen to your body’s cells.

7. Disturbed Vision

One symptom of vitamin B12 deficiency is blurred or disturbed vision. This is caused by damage to the optic nerve.

8. Mood Changes

People with B12 deficiency often report changes in mood.

9. High Temperature

A very rare but occasional symptom of B12 deficiency is a very high temperature or fever.

Vitamin B12 deficiency is quite common and can show up in various ways, making it hard to identify.

So if you’re at risk and have any of the symptoms above, speak to your doctor.

Still, for many people, a B12 deficiency should be easy to prevent simply by making sure you are getting enough B12 in your diet. But some, especially at risk groups, will find B12 supplements really valuable.

Forever Living has an ideal B12 supplement which is vegan-friendly and gluten-free. And it also contains folic acid which is especially important during pregnancy.
