I want to show you how you can earn up to $98.50 every time you recommend my ebook, "Secret Vendor List." to your friends and they buy!

So many of you have written to me telling how "blown away" they are with all the content I gave.  The bonuses put the value way over the top. 

You can tell by the testimonials below from Susan and Fran, they are amazed, and the other testimonials support that fact also! They just cannot believe all of the information I shared. Information that NO business owner would EVER release. We've talked a little about this in previous newsletters… just the fact that every retailer feels like they have "paid their dues" so to speak, by researching, making mistakes, and traveling to vendor and supplier warehouses. They, like myself, have lost money many times trusting unscrupulous suppliers when I was a "newby" to the retail business world and as gullible as they come!
Susan T.~  Nancy I LOVE the Secret Vendor List and the wonderful deal you gave us.  I cannot believe all the information you included in this wonderful packaged deal:  the names, addresses, phone number, merchandise examples, advice and comments on the vendors – unbelievable!   The extras you gave in this special offer in addition to the list are fantastic.  Your knowledge on where to purchase items for creating wreaths, your detailed instructions/ideas on creating the wreaths, creating bows, decorating, shipping merchandise, etc. are amazing.  I can't wait to get started on a new project I have in mind for my shop!
Oh, and if I did not say you are a true inspiration in my last e-mail, please add that, because YOU ARE!  (North Carolina) ~ Susan
Fran L. ~ I opened the book on my computer and had no problem.  Let me say you hit the book out of the ball park!  On a scale from 1-10, it's a TEN!  My next request is for a video showing you decorating a home for Christmas!  You are truly a Christian business woman.  This country sure could use more of you!  Wishing you great success with the book!  ~ Fran
Here is how I am going to help you…
Next Tuesday, November 2nd, at 8pm EDT
I am going to show you step by step on your computer screen
How easy it is to tell others about products you like.

I have asked my good friend and expert, Linda Joseph, to show you how to get started.

"What Colors Do You Use for Christmas?"

Jumping ahead a little in this issue, I want you to start thinking about what your favorite Christmas colors may be…and I want you to be prepared for the Christmas Season ahead.  What are your favorite Christmas colors? Are there any specific ones, which you prefer, more than any other? Do you like them all – the reds, greens, burgundies, and golds?

This article is about using color at Christmas. And I don't mean just any color or a combination of two colors, or possible three colors? No ma'am, I mean COLOR – all colors. You will be surprised at how it can brighten your home, your lives and your Christmas spirit.

Years ago, when I first married, I used red – yes, plain old red…..I thought everything in my home had to be red. I don't even remember using gold with it! Yep, I know what you're thinking, and yes, I have changed so much since then – it doesn't even feel like that was me, but it was.

We all go through changes in our lives which affect our decorating tastes. Our own personal style is affected by what we see in department stores, on television, on pages of our favorite magazines, or even just a dear friend's home and the choices that they make during Holiday seasons. This picture is just a small example of my table last year for a Christmas party.  I used fresh potted plants of pink, red & white (sitting on antique pedistals, by the way.  Throughout the kitchen and the rest of my house I also had red, green , purple (lots – I like it!),  gold, blue, and even orange.  And, believe me, my home was very festive!

After the period in my life where red was "the" color, I then went to burgundy and gold. But each year as I pulled out my favorite ornaments, there were many – but they didn't "go" anymore.

So…. It was time….One year, I made a very decisive choice that if I liked something, then it would match in my home. If I like it, no matter what style, shape, or color, there really was an absolutely perfect spot for it! That was when my eye for decorating, color, and style changed forever.

This kind of style is now what we call eclectic, or whimsical… or any other number of descriptive words. The point that I want to get across to you today is: don't lock yourself into one or two or three colors, or styles.

Take a chance this year, and do something a little different, add many ribbons of many colors – buy XL glittering tree balls from local craft and hobby stores, make special ornaments with your children and grandchildren, fill you tree with stems of flowers and fillers in many colors, pull out everything you have not used in years because it didn't match any more, and have lots of fun!

I'm telling you, these choices can make your Christmas bright and cheery!!! Take my word for it, you'll be so much happier. I am filled with so much joy by the smallest things, and color is probably at the top of the list. My Christmas tree now has red, burgundy, blue, gold, purple, golden yellow, plus lots more.

There are now no limits, I use all of my favorite, and special ornaments….including the special ones my grandmother cherished.

I have huge ribbon toppers for my tree out of very colorful ribbon with red, gold, purple and burgundy. But then right in the middle of those XL bows, I have tied another bow out of golden yellow burlap. For these burlap bows, I went to the cloth store and bought it by the yard. I then cut it in very wide strips and tied bowties out of it – large ones!! Two of these are on the top of my tree, another hangs from the side of my XXL Christmas wreath on my front door, and then two more are anchored on the sides of the pots which hold my lighted 4 foot trees on either side of my front door.

If I like something, and it is reasonably priced (preferably from a yard sale, or flea market – tee, hee hee), then it comes home with me – and yes, there will be an absolutely "perfect" spot for it. All of my furniture in my home is interchangeable as are each of my favorite rugs. Style and color does not keep a bedroom chair from looking great in my den.

I am now comfortable and happy in my "eclectic" home wheather it is Christmas or any other season!
