Happy Valentine's Day Videos

If Valentine's Day is your thing I hope you are having a great day!!!!

My day has got off to a less than impressive start.... i was updating my fiance's iphone when something froze and i had to restore the factory settings so he lost everything. It was lucky that I'd back up 99% of the photos and the one or 2 that weren't backed up were not important. iTunes notified me that there was a back up of the iphone... so I reinstalled that only to find out that it didn't back up his apps. Now everyone is tesnse and angry and to make matters worse it is pouting down rain so the kids can't go outside and run off their energy again. So I will be setting up the wii later for that reason.

I have made one video for Valentine's day and there will be a few more coming later.

making changes part 1 (identifying problem areas)

I've been giving a lot of thought to TEEs Me, Please! and why I'm attracting interest but not selling days.

The first problem is obviously the website.... and no calender.... .

Then there is only 4 blog followers.... nothing against you 4 but for TEEs Me, Please! to become my main income I need to have a large audience to show clients ("I have a 200 followers that want to see your business" makes more of an impact then I have 4 folowers). On Youtube I have 6 followers. I have 283 fans on facebook and that is a great start and twitter has around 50, but I still must get the numbers up.

I also need to take more pics throughout the day. This wasn't a problem when my daughter was my photographer as it's one of her passions but she's at school now and I dislike asking my boyfriend to take pics throughtout the day. I don't have my camera anymore either and I loved my camera.

The next problem is videos are now limited to the lattop and that is limiting. My phone was both a camera and a video....

Another problem is the laptop... I wanted this business to be portable to i could go out and about with my family and the company that is selling us the laptop aren't quite up to the job.

The companies that are interested don't always have a tee, hat etc. I don't want to be making shirts and I'm trying to source a company that will make shirts that are ecological and ethical and affordable for my clients.

The bar was set very high by the original tee wearer and I'm coming off as a tacky version.

I have a self esteem issue and that hinders not only the presentations but in how i promote myself.

I also have depression and every other day I feel useless and stupid.

so these are the main problem areas with TEEs Me, Please!

I have identified the problems and now i need to find the solutions. That will be another post for later today.

To my fans (taken from my facebook fan page)

I know that this may lose some fans but I'm not just looking to increase my numbers; yes i would like a large fan base for TEEs Me, Please to show to clients but I would prefer the fans to be fans that are interested in the companies that I am promoting or interested in buying days for their business.a few seconds ago ·

Yes I need the numbers but I feel that many people may have joined just to bulk up those numbers. I'd like to now that people are reading the messages and are interested. A lot of these messages relate to my own business or other people's businesses/events etc. I don't want to be seen to be spamming or bribing and so forth. I invite people to beinvolved because this business needs you to work.

Thank you and no offence. This message hasn't been prompted by anything specific; I've just realised that not only am I making too many compromises in my homelife but I've already started making too many compromises with TMP :( Have a nice day.

In honour of my Grandma

Today would have been my Grandma's birthday. The 24th is the anniversary of her death. So this year in memory of my Grandma I signed up to raise funds for mywatercharity.org. There are 59 days left of the campaign and the goal is $5000. I would like it if everyone could donate even $1.00 but if you can't please at least spread the word. I know that everyone is sending donations for Haiti and the world's greatest shave etc so another cause may be unwelcome.

In Bron's words... 
I first read about this campaign through an ezine that I am subscribed too; in the ezine was an article by Alyssa Milano. She was giving up her 37th birthday to raise money and wareness for this cause. I donated and then thought that I should start my own campaign. I am fortunate; I have 4 lovely children and while times have been tough we are still better off than many other people. I am lucky to have my children but I am also aware that there are too many children who don't have access to even basic water.

The name of my campaign is Doris Duckitt which is the name of my beloved Grandma; she passed away almost 6 years ago and I wanted to do something sepcial in her honour. She was a very special lady and I miss her a lot.



"Millions of women and children in developing countries walk over three miles every day to collect water. And sadly, often the only water they have is sitting stagnant in contaminated ponds and flowing through streams and rivers polluted by cows and human waste.

Unsafe water and a lack of basic sanitation causes 80% of all disease in the world and kills 4,500 children every day. And the time spent collecting water keeps children out of school and women from pursuing economic activities.

Clean and safe water is readily available in underground aquifers, freshwater springs or with the help of simple filters. It just needs to be properly collected and managed. "[from the FAQ]
