Written without using legal jargon, the content is presented in an easy-to-understand format that helps to limit confusion and uncertainty. Visitors to the website get full access to a library of articles, news, blog posts, videos, and responses to frequently asked questions.

The website encompasses two main practices of law related to financial difficulty: bankruptcy and foreclosure defense. Visitors to the site will find that many of their most pressing questions are addressed up front. Some of the types of questions the website answers include:

Major differences between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy
What to do when you receive a foreclosure notice in the mail
Whether bankruptcy will stop wage garnishments
Which debts are erased by bankruptcy

Business Model You® Workshop

— Essential Training for Enterprising Professionals —
A full-day workshop on reinventing your career

Workshop: Friday, November 7 (Amsterdam Zilveren Toren)
Master Class: Saturday, November 8 (Amsterdam Zilveren Toren)
Both events 9:30 AM till 5:30 PM

If you want to get more out of your life and career, you’re not alone. More and more people today want greater meaning, value and personal enjoyment in their daily lives. This workshop is designed to help you achieve that, and more. 

Have you read the global bestseller Business Model You: A One Page Method for Reinventing Your Career? It describes a “personal business model” methodology that reveals insightful ways you can identify evolving market needs and uncover fresh, more fulfilling career and life possibilities.

If you enjoyed the book (and even if you’ve yet to read it) you’ll love our live workshop, where you’ll quickly learn the Business Model You® methodology with direct guidance from its creator, Dr. Timothy Clark.

Two important questions

Like most people, you probably work for an enterprise, either as a manager, employee; contractor or vendor. If so, ask yourself these two key questions 1) How does the enterprise make money? 2) How do you make money?
These questions are not just for businesspeople. Every enterprise — whether nonprofit, for-profit, government, or social venture – must generate cash to carry out its work. And every enterprise has its own business model. What exactly is that? A business model shows how an enterprise creates and delivers something valuable to customers — and is paid for doing so. As a professional, understanding business models is vital.

What that means to you

You have a personal business model. It’s how you create and deliver something valuable to an enterprise — and are paid for doing so. If you can bring your personal business model to work and add value to the enterprise, you can achieve great success and make the changes you desire.

Whether you want to advance in your current role, change jobs, or start your own venture, you must know 1) how enterprises make money, and 2) how you make money — or can make money (perhaps in entirely new ways). Learn to answer both questions, step-by-step, in this essential training for enterprising professionals.

This immersive workshop is for you if:

  • Your career has hit an impasse or glass ceiling and you’re keen to reinvigorate the sense of possibility and growth you previously enjoyed
  • Your team members have trouble seeing the “big picture” behind projects
  • You’re considering going freelance or starting your own venture
  • You need a fresh approach to managing enterprise talent

If you or your clients face challenges like these, you’ll get a jump start by mastering this proven approach to business modeling. Here are just a few of the things you’ll accomplish:

  • Articulate the personal value you provide and identify new prospective customers

Learner Praise for Business Model You®

“I loved the ability to actually rehearse and say what I am
and simplify my message and clarify the whole model for myself with the help of others."

Francisco Baptista

So I have a totally different mindset compared to how I thought in the past.
And I think I will progress that going forward
and I definitely know that this will help in my future career."

Rolf Crisovan

“As an MBA candidate, I’d gleaned bits and pieces of career insight

Empower Network Review of David Wood and David Sharpes New Affiliate Marketing Program Revealed

Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 27, 2012

Created by two former homeless guys turned millionaires, David Sharpe and David Wood,The Empower Network is an affiliate marketing program that makes it easy for any affiliate to make sales on the Internet of any product including Empower Network itself. Due to the high rewards and the professional training that the program created by these top internet and MLM marketers offers Internet and multi-level marketers, direct sales, and other business owners are flocking to join it. An Empower Network review shows how this program not only provides marketers the training and tools that they need to make money with the program and also in their own businesses but also offers them a 100% commission on all their sales.

David Sharpe and David Wood have created an automated sales funnel that they are constantly perfecting and have used their training, expertise, and knowledge and transferred it to this new program. Affiliates of the Empower Network get access to a highly optimized blogging platform that brings in traffic and converts visitors to sales for $ 25 a month. Affiliates can promote their own programs or other products and can blog about anything they want which also makes it ideal for MLM and Internet marketers.

Internet Marketer and super affiliate John Barry of states, “I have promoted hundreds of products in lot of different niches but nothing has gotten me as excited as the Empower Network opportunity. With just the blog one is given, one can make thousands with it, but the opportunity to promote quality products that practically sell themselves is even better. Nothing is better than making a residual, recurring income with high priced backend products. The cool thing is that people of all experience levels are making money with it too.”

An additional $ 100 a month gets members access to the Empower Network Inner Circle Training that includes access to weekly calls including archives from top earners in MLM, direct sales, internet marketing, and more. Affiliates can purchase and promote even higher level trainings. The Empower Network Costa Rica Intensive for $ 500 offers 11 in-depth video lessons about how 7 figure earners are marketing their businesses both online and offline. In a bonus lesson, David Wood shows how to use all the previous lessons and use them in their own business.

With lessons from top marketers that teach different skills one can plug into their business to earn at least $ 1,000 a day in their program quickly, the Empower Network training is the 15k Formula that costs $ 1000. There is also a $ 3500 Costa Rica Masters Retreat program, that affiliates are able to sell and receive $ 3000 as commissions.

Only those who purchase a program are able to promote it, so as they upgrade to the other levels, they not only get access to the additional training but also able to get commissions on those programs. With a unique commission structure that allows the affiliate to make money off of the people they refer, Empower is a great fit for both those with no internet experience and those with advanced marketing skills. The affiliate keeps the 1st, 3rd and 5th commissions and the 2nd, 4th and 6th go to the referrer. Thereafter, every 5th commission goes to the referrer. This is great for a passive, residual income as the more people an affiliate refers in, higher are the pass up commissions that they can get.

To help more people get started and making more money with Empower Network faster, John Barry of has created a unique Empower Network Bonus package that can be found on his website. Click The link above to learn more.

For those who are ready to join or who want more information should go sign up here at the official website.

Those would like to contact someone directly can email realjohnbarry (at) gmail(dot)com or call 1-877-524-2556.

Small Business Marketing Ideas and Strategy from ByReputation’s New Small Business Promotion Service

Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 07, 2013

To get a free small business marketing consult from an expert, please click on the link below:

Get a Free Small Business Marketing Consult

To increase a small business ranking in Google, Yahoo, and Bing, search engine optimization gauges the patterns from past site statistics to find keywords and phrases with the highest conversion rates. The search engine specialist will then adjust the page factors on the site which have the highest part in the search algorithm. Once adjusted, a continuous off page optimization campaign will begin using only white hat and penguin safe techniques.

Local search directories such as Yahoo Local, Yelp, Yellowbook, and Superpages, which receive over 100 million hits a month, are search engines relied heavily upon by customers today to find a small business in their area. ByReputation concentrates on the top 30 local directories making sure each of the small business listing is enhanced over all other services to reach out to more businesses.

Then there is content marketing which is centralized around the use of blogs to publish up-to-date articles about the small business two to three times a week. Consistent blogging about small business procedures raises the Google freshness score for the domain name which then allows the small business to show up higher in the rankings.
