If you are the parent of a special needs child then you know that growing up special in today’s world is not easy. Finding ways to help your child be successful and to be as independent as they can be is often a challenge. Too often those children, or young adults, are shuffled off to a seperate area or to a “special” program. Acceptance is sometimes hard to come by.
Therefore, it is vitally important to create an environment where your special person is accepted, loved, encouraged and challenged to spread their wings. Finding appropriate venues to integrate them with “normal” or “average” peers is difficult.
When you are able to find a good fit…often you must force yourself to stand back and let them do and be. That is easier said than done. As a parent you are always in a protective mode…and you should be…but…you must also let them be as independent as they can be without interference. 🙂
Do you have some great experience that you could share with other parents of special needs children or children who have been adopted who struggle with issues? If so, others could benefit from your successes and possibly even your struggles. Check out this blog: http://www.growingupspecial.com/ Introduce yourself and leave a comment. You never know…you just might find others to share with.

Alpha Inventions, I wondered if you have heard of them yet? I discovered them the other day when they made an appearance on my stat counter on my blog site. I wondered who are they and; how, and why are they referring so many visitors to my blog. Not that I minded the traffic; in fact, it was quite wonderful. However, sometimes sites connect to your site that you wish had never heard of you; you know what I mean? Some of them bring traffic that i don’t want associated with my blog.
Anyway, i did a little sleuthing and found out it is a site that is relatively new. From what i understand…it is a site that brings exposure to a multitude of sites-in real time. So, as soon as you post to your site/blog others can see it at that moment. In doing so, they are current on what information or products you are trying to bring to the world wide web. I don’t understand all of the ins and outs of their algorithms…but, thankfully, it isn’t my job to understand it. I am benefitting from someone else’s brillance. That is ok with me. In return, i hope that my blog brings something to them as well.
Interesting though when you stop to think about the name. Alpha Inventions…when I looked it up there were many definitions for Alpha. Of course, we all know about the Alphabets…a listing of letters that begins with the letter A. Then, there is the definition of Alpha as first or beginning-beta (as in beta testing). Then, there is the definition of top of the line or dominant. And finally, to be the most prominent, talented or aggressive. Congrats to Alpha Inventions for thinking outside of the box. Think of it as free media publicity for your writings or your business/marketing site. It is another tool to use to bring attention to your goals that you are trying to accomplish on your site.
When you stop and think about it…all of those terms apply to http://www.alphainventions.com . It is an experiment in transition i think. However, a brilliant one…I think it will be fine tuned and will catch on like wildfire. Like any invention…it will go through several phases of development. In the meantime, enjoy the extra traffic that they send you…you won’t be sorry.

What’s little ol me doing on a call with a Billion Dollar Marketing Dream Team? I remember starting out with a lot of self-doubt and I pushed myself to take a risk to either fail or succeed. The only thing i can figure about my being asked to join the call is; that each one of those people started out with a goal, an idea or a dream. They built up their businesses by learning and growing in their area of expertise. They each had mentors, role models, and experts that they were smart enough to connect with. This helped them with their goals and helped them to build up their accomplishments allowing them to live the life of their choosing.
The call is a free tele-seminar that i was asked to join, by businessman Michael Penland. This call is for small business owners and internet marketers who want to grow their business larger and aren’t quite sure how to go about it or want to discover what they are missing. Learning how to make extra money is never a bad thing when you are willing to work towards your goals.
I am not a business-person. I am a wife,mother, daughter and blogger. I sure do wish to grow my blog; i would love for it to be bigger and better. Michael Penland knows how to attract people who are good at what they do. I would like to learn as much as the next person. Michael heard about my blog and asked me to join on the call. I am a bit nervous, as I am not sure where he will go with the short interview…there are others on the call who will have much to say; and, are very accomplished in what they do. Let the call be an encouragement to your future; commit to the call by registering for free.
If you have a business or website that you would like to grow…you might want to join the call tonight at 9pm eastern time. It is free after all; and, if it helps you to discover how to make your dreams come true…then, it is worth sacrificing a little time on a tele-seminar. Here is a link to register…there are only 200 lines open so hurry. http://tinyurl.com/6k3tpr Is your dream worth a little time on a call?
