By now, many of our friends and families have seen one of us rocking our new favorite “I’m God’s Favorite.” T-Shirts and made comments and/or asked about where it came from. So, we would like to share where we got them from. It’s actually a print-on-demand Shopify store that Daniel has been working on. We have decided to open the store in progress to the public so others can buy the shirts as well. Have a large order? You’re welcome to contact us for discounted pricing.
As we’re about to celebrate the US Independence Day on July 4, I’d like to submit the idea that we can also hope for and work towards our financial independence day. Just as our founding fathers fought for our independence back in the day, so we can today also fight to become financially independent, and for some of us, mark the day on our calendar when we found ourselves there, on our very own financial independence day.
Today, I’d like to talk about a training program that I’ve been looking into over the past month called, Wealthy Affiliate. While I’ve been a web developer for over 10 years now, I’ve found the training quite useful in terms of learning how to market a website, do keyword research and generate traffic.
What does this have to do with financial independence or independence day?
The training helps ordinary people that aren’t writers or marketers find out that they can be and that they can make income on the side or even a living out of it. When you think about it, everyone is an expert on at least one subject. Wealthy Affiliate provides the training on how to put that to good use and also provides the tools to succeed.
And Wealthy Affiliate is so much more too. Wealthy Affiliate is also an online community of over 800k active members from all walks of life that help each other succeed through forums, chats, and training built from past experiences. Members share with each other what works and what does not work. Also, members help each other when they get stuck. And, members give constructive criticism and provide feedback on each others’ websites to further boost search engine rank and community engagement.
How does the Affiliate in Wealthy Affiliate become Wealthy?
Affiliate marketing. The training provided at Wealthy Affiliate is a step by step guide on how to create a new website (with WordPress) and through thorough keyword research generate organic search engine traffic. When there’s traffic on the website(s), there’s also the potential for affiliate links. Affiliate links are, essentially, links to services and products that are related to what your website is about our products and services that we recommend. Once a user clicks on such a link and buys that service or product, the website owner receives a commission. Many website owners have become quite wealthy with this strategy.
Make it your financial independence day with Wealthy Affiliate
I’d like to challenge you today to mark this day, Independence Day, as the day that you begin your journey towards financial independence by giving Wealthy Affiliate a try and give yourself a chance to benefit from the many services and features that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer.
What can I do with the Starter Membership?
Here’s a comparison chart that shows exactly what’s available with the Starter Membership vs what Premium members get. Oh, and by the way, when you’re using the free Starter Membership, you get a discount to upgrade to Premium Membership. I recommend taking full advantage of the first 7 days of membership and learn as much as you possibly can, then, if you decide that Wealthy Affiliate is for you, upgrade your membership right before the 7 days are up and take advantage of the huge discount.
In closing, I’d like to offer anyone who is interested in learning more about the program at Wealthy Affiliate, please reach out to me with any concerns or questions. I’m here to help. You can use the comments below or send a message via the contact form.
Our newest morning favorite is a green tea smoothie we like to call the green tea summer morning smoothie. It’s easy to make and only has 5 ingredients
To 24oz of unsweetened, cold almond milk, add:
- 1 teaspoon local raw honey
- 1 teaspoon green tea matcha
(we recommend Aiya’s Organic Ceremonial Matcha)
- 1 teaspoon cacao powder
(we like the organic cacao from Thrive Market)
- 1 drop peppermint oil
(we use Doterra peppermint oil)
Blend on high for 30 seconds. Enjoy!
Optionally, add a couple of ice cubes before or after blending. We’ve found that we like both options to make it colder or the no ice option with cold almond milk, either way it’s awesomely refreshing and boosts focus!

We bought a 2-pack of Honest Healing Balm at Costco sometime last year and we have started to use it for nearly everything! It works great for minor scrapes and cuts but lately we’ve also found that it works well as for parched, dry skin and lips. Instead of buying lip balm, like we’ve done nearly every year, we’ve decided that Honest Healing Balm does the trick much better than anything we’ve used in the past. The same thing goes for moisturizing hand-lotion – we just use the Honest Healing Balm instead.

Our insider trick
One thing that we’ve found out using the Honest Healing Balm which we’d like to mention here is that if it’s stored at low-ish temperatures (like under 60°F), it gets a little hard and is also harder to apply to the skin. We assume that’s because of the natural oils and beeswax. So our insider trick for making it a little easier to apply is to simply put it in our pocket for about 20-30 minutes before using it.
If you’ve tried the Honest Healing Balm yourself, please leave a comment and let us know so we can compare notes!
What we like about it
It’s made of ingredients that are not worried about putting on our skin or our children’s skin.
