The Skinny on Nut Snacking

walnuts

Are you nuts over nuts like me?  The problem is; fuel filled, protein packed nuts are so good for our bodies, but only in moderation!!  Oh shucks!   Here is what I found out:

A healthy, fuel-filled snack of nuts should only be about 200 calories.  How many nuts is that anyway? 

200 calories of almonds = 29 almonds

200 calories of cashews = 22 cashews

200 calories of walnuts = 8 walnuts

200 calories of pistachios = 62 pistachios

200 calories of peanuts = 22 peanuts

200 calories of pecans = 10 pecans

200 calories of macadamia nuts = 10 macadamia nuts

At least I now know I can still have my favorite snack, if I don’t overdo it.

Happy snacking!

Crowdfunding: A Modern Way to Raise Money

crowdfunding

Imagine dreaming up a project that would be funded quickly and easily through crowd donations. Sound too good to be true? It wasn’t for Rick Wiley, owner of Port Townsend’s Wheel-In Motor Movie. On June 8th, 2014, Rick’s dream of a new digital theater system came true when his project was successfully funded through the crowdfunding website, www.kickstarter.com. Rick’s campaign was critical for the survival of the theater; as the conversion to digital cinema for his drive-in was necessary, extremely costly, and could not be funded without assistance.

So exactly what is crowdfunding and how can it be used? Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising small amounts of money from a large number or people, typically on the internet. Crowdfunding campaigns are funded by the general public, not investors. Each campaign has a set monetary goal and time limit. The beauty of crowdfunding is that it often offers individuals and small businesses a chance at success, by allowing their businesses and projects to be easily showcased and funded by people from all over the world.

There are four basic types of crowdfunding; donation-based, reward-based, equity-based, and debt crowdfunding. In donation-based crowdfunding, individuals donate money or other resources because they support a cause or feel connected to the greater purpose of a campaign. In reward-based crowdfunding, individuals give money to a business in exchange for a reward; typically a product or service that the business provides. With equity-based crowdfunding, a crowd becomes part-owners of the company in which it invests, so they will receive a return on their investment. Debt crowdfunding is the last type; in which a company raises money by borrowing it from the crowd. The business then commits to repay their loan back by a certain time and at a certain interest rate.

Top crowdfunding platforms include http://www.kickstarter.com, www.gofundme.com, www.angel.co, www.lendingclub.com, and www.fundingcircle.com. Each website has slightly different rules and processing fees. If you decide to donate to a crowdfunding campaign, do your homework since there are many crowdfunding sites scams. If a campaign has few supporters, unrealistic fundraising goals, botched photos, or vague fundraising details, it could be a fraud. Additionally, beware of crowdfunding websites that claim they are “100% free.” They charge donors fees instead of you.

How can crowdfunding help you accomplish your dreams, purpose or destiny?  I would love to hear your thoughts!

Stay tuned to my blog to find out how I’ll be using crowdfunding!

In good health and extreme happiness,

Embracing New Beginnings

path 1

“It only takes one idea, one second in time, one friend, one dream, one leap of faith, to change everything, forever.”            -Anonymous

In the movie Stranger than Fiction, the main character Harold Crick, does the same thing, at the same time, every day. His daily routine revolves around the tick of his wristwatch, thus making his life extremely dull and predictable. But one day his watch stops and his life is forever changed. Being thrown into a world of uncertainty, Harold finds difficulty in adapting to the world around him until he consciously chooses to start embracing his new life.

Do you ever feel like Harold Crick? Are you fearful of stepping outside your comfort zone? Do you struggle with change? Often, the scariest part of beginning again is the transition zone that occurs between ending one thing and starting another. We make excuses and do whatever we can to avoid the pain of this fearful place. However, the state of transition allows us to evolve from within while making peace with the past and allowing the uncertainty of the future. It is truly the place where the most personal growth and transformation occur. Transition zones can be terrifying, but they can also be the most passionate and enlightening moments of our lives.

Starting again doesn’t have to be scary; beginnings can be exhilarating and freeing. With change come opportunities and the chance to see things from a different perspective. Beginnings give insight to our lives so we can see what is truly fulfilling us and what is not. The great perfection in beginning again, is that whatever happens next, you’ll be stronger, wiser, and richer for it. Remember, every day is a chance for a new beginning. You are an eternal being and whatever you have once dreamed… the universe still dreams for you.

May 2015 be your best year yet!
