Big changes previously alluded to...

So on to the big changes.. In January we decided we would like to get out of the alpaca business in 2011.  We have nothing bad to say about the business model, but due to the economy, our business plan just is not working like we had hoped, and rather than keeping ourselves tied down to a business that is costing us in feed and vet care instead of making a profit by now, we would rather turn our attentions to other pursuits.  We still fully believe the alpaca business will bounce back when the economy bounces back for those who will wait, but A) we are tired of waiting, and B) We are losing our faith in WHEN the economy is turning around.

SO, we are liquidating our herd and have been selling alpacas fairly rapidly.  We are down to 24 now, which is far from the 100+ we had here only 2 years ago.  We have some unbelievable deals for super quality animals, and some have taken notice.  We have no regrets on the path we have taken.. especially as that journey has led us to the direction we are now moving in.  In the meantime we had 3 babies last week and have 5 more due before the end of the month.  So it's hard to know haw many alpacas we own on a given day.

The Cria at play!

Last September we took a Rich Dad (Robert Kyosaki) weekend course on Options trading and got very turned on by that.  So Mike has been educating himself to be able to contribute to our household via that vehicle.  And I, as most of you know am TOTALLY immersed in Send Out Cards.  The company just gets better and better (and the checks just keep getting better and better).  I believe in the product, in the heart of the company, in the law of attraction, and the good things that come with appreciating others.  It has been truly transforming in my life, and I am so excited about the prospects this company has to help others lives as well.  The income opportunity is something that so many people in our country these days are begging for, and even if the opportunity is not for you the product is something that is changing the world for the better every day.  Send Out Cards has just removed all membership fees for retail customers (unbelievable value for FREE!) and they are going to open up globally in the next few months.  I truly believe Send Out Cards is going to make a lot of billionaires in the next 5 years....  But I'm gushing and saying too much.... I just can't help myself!

But as mentioned in the earlier post.. It's too easy to get distracted and let the Send Out Cards business stagnate.  So to help me to stay focused, 4 weeks ago I joined a mentoring program that runs for 1 year, in which you must dedicate 15-20 hours a week to Send Out Cards to complete.  This is going to be a serious commitment, to keep up all the other things I have going, but I want my Send Out Cards business to flourish, and this is going to be what it takes!  SO.. my friends, you may not see another post for another year!!!  ;-)
