Jodi Ralston commented on Dr. Jason Cabler's blog post 20 Simple Ways to Curb Impulse Buying for Good
"Good post.  I impulse-buy all the time at my local dollar store.  When everything is a dollar, it feels "okay" to indulge.  But the only thing you are indulging is a bad habit."

Hi Jodi,

Thanks for getting back to me.

There is a lot of helpful information here. Were you talking about Dan's podcast?

The next issue of our newsletter is coming out in a few days. 4 Points Coaching is a bi-monthly. May we start sending it your way?

PS Also, if you didn't check out the free e-resource I offer entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! ($47 Value) to those who join the REAL Success E-Zine community (also free) at www.liveitforward.com, be sure to do so. I think you'll get a ton out of both resources.

Jodi,

Just noticed you joined 48Days.net -- WELCOME! It's a great site with tons of great people.

If you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out the following groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place.

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

One other thing…I want to offer you a gift. You can download my FR EE e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! by joining the REAL Success E-Zine community at www.liveitforward.com. It's a growing and dynamic community of people striving to live WAY BEYOND their average in the most important roles of their lives. I think you'll get a ton out of both the Goal-Setting product and the REAL Success E-Zine. And again, both are absolutely free.

Looking forward to connecting with you!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian

Hi Jodi,

Welcome to the community. You'll find this to be a pretty good place to make new friends and exchange ideas.
There are plenty of ways to get involved depending on what your interests are.

One group that is worth looking into is 180 Career Coaching.
Good stuff going on in there.

Another group you'll want to stop by is the winner's circle. That's my group.
Good discussions and quite a bit of activity as many of the members share their thoughts and insights. We look forward to your participation.
