Th Ocean is one of the most unexplore areas of our blue planet.

Webster’s dictionary describes it as: a secondary phenomenon accompanied by another one and caused by it; SPECIFICALLY: A secondary mental phenomenon that is caused by and accompanied by a physical phenomenon but has no causal influence itself.

 I NEVER looked at myself as being writer material…ever.

When I was in school and through to my mid-twenties I had and sometimes still have issues with spelling and grammar. I failed English miserably in High school, and was told they were surprised I was literate.

I never cared much for writing. I didn’t know to take the ideas in my head, and turn them into stories on the page.

 I liked poetry and creative writing which followed no standardized guidelines, but as far as essays and professional writing… I think at the time an educated primate would have a better chance at it than I would have.

That being said, I am now a fully published and credited feature writer for a widely distributed magazine in the Adirondack NY area, and soon to be a freelance contributor to one of the largest business to business newspapers in the area….I am in fact a writer!

My epiphenomenon started two years ago in my English 102 class at HVCC in Troy, NY.  My English professor was Joseph Cardillo, an author of 15 best-selling books across the nation.

He was awarded honorary PHD’s in Psychology and Neurosciences due to his investigations into the workings of the mind body and personality.

Cardillo saw in me something I had ignored my whole life. A spark of creativity tapped only by the way of pain and suffering. In the two years I sat in his Engl 102-103 classes, he helped me harness my abilities and become the writer by planting the seed of interest in my mind.

Once I started thinking about writing and about how well I could write, suddenly the more I liked it and the easier it came.

I work at home, for myself. Yes I still have a “regular job” but that’s only because my big money writing gig hasn’t started up yet… It’s coming… soon!

I have an opportunity to make $1000 a week working for myself as a freelance writer! That’s just one lead! In the time it takes to write this blog (if I did it for money) I would already have made between: $15-$25 working on a blog site writing about predetermined topics.

That’s what I like about Empower Network.

 You own the blog, you write about whatever it is you desire and generate traffic to your site and interest in your business.

 I have seen postings on freelance sites looking for content writer FOR people who own Empower Network blogs.They are making enough money from home to pay somebody else to write their blogs for them!  But I digress.

It is amazing to see how putting my mind to achieve something created the desired outcome! My other issues were always having low and negative thoughts about my actions. The outcome was always low or negative and never as good and lucrative as they could have been.

I started having this outlook on life as if I was “born to fail” all I can seem to do lately is succeed!!! I put all my positive energy and effort into an idea and it happens.

I’m not saying its magic! If anything its pure science! Energy comes in many forms and is simply an action waiting to happen.

If you focus on the action and the outcome of the action, the energy has no other choice but to follow that which it was designed to do.

 I put that in my own words but Albert Einstein said something along this very same lines of [anything th at has the potential of action is energy]

The Phenomenon was the idea that I could do something that I had always thought would never be done by me. The epiphenomenon was me actually DOING it and succeeding at making my living AS A WRITER!

All thanks to s small seed of positive energy flowing my way from and instructor that I am ever so grateful to have had the pleasure of studying under;

If a D-F student can turn her life around, Become a 3.50 GPA College student and make a lucrative business freelancing…WORKING FOR MYSELF… Than anyone can do it too!

My friend Michael Spodnick is and amazing philanthropist. He started by searching around his local communities looking for people to inspire to do better for themselves and offer solutions to their problems. He is the ultimate success story.

I have said it so many times to friends and neighbors, but it bears repeating to the world: keep your eyes out for this guy… He will be the next face you see on Success Magazine, the future poster child for creating your own wealth form home.

I am so proud of his accomplishments. He has come so far in his life. He has changed in ways that most people couldn’t do in everyday life. Now he is intrepidly paving the way for everyone to have their  fair shot at TRUE liberty. But again I digress.

The point I am making here people is that, No matter what walk of life you hail from, no matter how down out and miserly things seem….. Your future is never predetermined. It is chosen, created by the energies that you release into the world and reverberate back to you.

This isn’t magic. I am not telling you I have the ONE solution to ALL your problems. Many people have a multitude of issues, and there is no “magic pill” to cure them all…. But it’s a start to something better.

Go ahead and roll your eyes… huff and puff… and navigate away from the page if you wish. The only person you will hurt by ignoring this chance to improve your life is YOU. We won’t be offended I promise.

BUT! If you are intrigued, excited to try and help yourself and your family to have a grasp on something better… Then contact my friend Michael. Listen to what he has to say… Take in his life story and let it resonate with you….

He helped me change MY life….. And is helping other’s change their own…  Let him help YOU too…

AGAIN… He isn’t magic… he isn’t a shaman or witch Dr. He wont roll his eyes in the back of his head and magically change you… But he will help you to learn how to change your life yourself… It is all you…

Give him a shout… See it for yourself, and I hope to talk with Michael and hear about the newest person he was helped to reach their dreams!

How To Find Work Freelancing


The word invokes images of some independantly wealthy guru enjoying the fruits of life, while others slave away at their 9-5 jobs.freelance-8 It can be quite rewarding! Imagine creating a lucrative business working for yourself.

No longer being at the mercy of someone else scheduling your life, getting to that point when you can wlk in to your job and tell your boss he’s fired!

It all does sound so nice! Making your work schedule around your life instead of trying to schedule your life and family around your job.

That is one of the perks! Everything depends on what YOU do. Which can also be a downfall. It is all on YOU. You decide your success of failure.
A budding entrepreneur cannot go very far without the proper resources and exposure.
But… Where can we Freelancers turn to find such essential resources to promote ourselves and showcase the services we provide?

My Top Four Websites For Freelance:

1) is a great website for freelancers of all skill sets to find decent paying jobs.The pay is safe guarded through an “escrow” clients deposit into once a freelancer is contracted to the job.

2) is another wonderful site. It allows you to not only find work via their website, but also keep records of jobs you are doing outside of the website.

3) is a great site! Not only is it a great site to find work, but it also allows you to connect with other like-minded individuals and potential clients.

My last one may come as quite a surprise…

4) Yes really! If you look in the Gigs underneath the job listings, there is a list of jobs that are usually short-term or looking to outsource freelancers to do the jobs. This is where I found my first freelance job, which turned into a longterm opportunity with endless possibilites.

Once you start getting yourself established and build your repertoire of quality jobs done with examples of your work, you can kiss your “job” goodbye and start enjoying your CAREER!
Happy hunting freelancers…and good luck!
