40 Great Ways To Make Your FORTUNE With A MicroBusiness! [Abbott ePublishing blog]

Job satisfaction is at an all-time low. The job market is soft. It's been very hard to find a decent, good paying job.

But there are some jobs that are really, really easy to start, with little cash, and offer the hope of not only being one’s own boss, but being able to make a bit of money in these depressed economic times.

Despite what the economists say, people still need basic services and are willing to pay a reasonable price for them. Sometimes, if marketed correctly, with a high level of personal service, and the price is right, even NON-basic luxury services can "sell" in this economy.

Passion is perhaps the most key element to starting your business. As www.winelibrarytv.com founder and social media guru Gary Vaynerchuk says, "When you build a business around a passion, that's when you really hit it out of the park."

Abbott ePublishing's "Forty Ways to Make a FORTUNE with MicroBusinesses" outlines 40 such “instant” service business ideas that are well-suited to this economy, and are super-easy to set up.

Each of these jobs are simple to start, depending on your level of skill and ability to focus on the start-up with drive, vision and passion.

Check out "Forty Ways..." at Abbott ePublishing today. For just $1.99, you can't go wrong, and you could even be starting a new chapter in your working life TODAY!

Did A Modern-Day #Nostradamus Predict #Trump's Rise (And Fall) In 2009? [Abbott ePublishing blog]

In January, 2010, Abbott ePublishing released an eBook, "The Prophesies of Madame Mary Ordana for the 2010s." Ordana, a mysterious woman of Caribbean extraction, writes over 50 predictions, and does so with great specificity - rare for one who claims to be seeing into the future, since many tend to write in vague stanzas that could be easily interpreted as a "success" later on.

She tackles plane crashes, royal deaths and births, missing children, the rise of new religions and the fall and death of well known ministers. 

The predictions were composed in 2009, and submitted for publication in January, 2010.

It's been speculated that she has already gotten some of her predictions right, such as her specific prediction that 2010 would be a "year of earthquakes," the crash of an Asiana Airlines plane in 2013, and her shocking description (in Stanza 8) of the death of two Hollywood actors - presumably Lauren Becall and Robin Williams:

"Two deaths at once, oh how sorrowful.
Old Hollywood cries.
One still dominated the screen
Another, aged, alone she dies."

Note that the eBook was published January 20, 2010, and these deaths occurred in the summer of 2014.

Ordana spends much time on politics, noting the rise and fall of governments, the death of old dictators and the appearance of new leaders, some of whom are demagogues or rogues.

This is, of course, the appropriate time to consider whether any of these Stanzas predicted the rise of Donald Trump, who is, at the time of this writing, the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party.

For example, Stanza 36 would tend to indicate a leader arising in the US but not succeeding, ultimately:

"The one who cries will make a power play
Before the statue, he holds a huge crowd’s sway.
“Freedom!” he cries but few hear,
As he reaches for the White House by using fear.
Attacked by both sides, he falls into the sea
Loved by some, but feared by many.
The demagogue fails in DC."

Does this hint at Trump? He has been accused of "using fear" - of illegal immigrants, for example - and has certainly been "attacked by both sides, including many in his own party. He's also been labeled a demagogue. If so, this means he might fail in his bid to reach DC, or to convince Republican congressmen there to join with him in his campaign.

It may also be that this refers to another popular figure - TV personality and author Glenn Beck. His cries of "Freedom" (something Trump rarely addresses) before a statue, and the fact that he is "the one who cries" (Trump has never cried in public, Beck has) may refer to his August 28, 2010 rally before the statue of Lincoln on the National Mall in DC. This "Restoring Honor Rally" was seen by some as an attempt to "reach for the White House" and promote his possible future candidacy, though he made no such allusions, nor did he attempt it. Yet.

Another possible Trump reference may be Stanza 34, which could allude to a trade war with China in early 2017 after Trump is sworn in as president:

"Stocks in this new year take another wild ride,
As China’s eye for investments begin to roam
A trade war is threatened, and stocks again slide
Before negotiations make their mark and calm the waters
Yet damage is done and millions will lose their homes."

Finally, an election bringing "great change" is mentioned in Stanza 5:

"Elections bring great change
New leader is well-read. 
The opposition wins
After old leader was handed his head."

While the election of Trump would likely bring "great change," (and his "Make America GREAT Again" seems to be alluded to in this wording) the fact that the new leader is "well read" would tend to discount Trump, who doesn't pretend to be a great reader. The "opposition" winning though would mean the Republicans, if this even refers to the United States. The "old leader" being handed "HIS" head cannot be Hillary Clinton, a woman, though it might be her husband, if he is the subject to numerous attacks from Trump during the campaign.

Did #Christ Return To Earth In the 1990s as a Chinese Woman?

An Obscure Chinese Religion Believes IT'S TRUE! 
The Chinese-based religion "Eastern Lightning" teaches that in the 1990s, Jesus Christ  returned to Earth - as a Chinese woman in her 30s named Yang Xiangbin (photo on the left - the only image known to exist.)

This controversial "cult" has been vigorously persecuted by the Communist Chinese government, which labeled it "subversive," and Christian missionaries in China and throughout Asia have also labeled it as "dangerous," not just for its aggressive tactics and alleged criminal behavior, but because its teachings vary from Christian "orthodox" teachings.

For example, Lightning from the East (or "Eastern Lightning," also known as "The Church of the Almighty God") believes that in the Old Testament, God was "Jehovah," while in the New Testament, this same God was known as Jesus. But in this age, Yang Xiangbin has become the third incarnation of God, the "Almighty God."

We all know about Christianity, Judaism, Islam and even Buddhism. But those aren't the only religions in the world, by far. There are many others that have captured the imagination and devotion of many across the globe. some that are small, secretive and even mysterious.

"Secret Religions and Obscure Faiths" is a fascinating look at just a few of those strange, obscure and even secretive religions that our editor has come across in the past few decades. You might be amazed at the diversity and colorful nature of some of these incredibly obscure religions, and you might also be inspired to seek out some "secret religions" in your own neighborhood.

You will ALSO read about:

  • A Japanese "New Religion" that teaches its followers that "Life is Art" and celebrates life with an annual fireworks show that draws thousands of onlookers.
  • Three modern "Mystery Religions" that take their cues from the Ancients.
  • The Taiwanese man who was so upset with US Pres. Jimmy Carter making "belligerent" and "warlike" comments that he asked Heaven if he could start a new, peace-promoting religion (hint: they said Yes!) 
  • The religion that wants to bring back the Old Gods and Goddesses of the Ancient World - but with new names.
  • The humble German religious leader who spent a lifetime in jail but didn't want his followers to glorify him.
  • The faith that reveres a cup they believe to be the Holy Grail

And MORE!

This amazing book is 80 pages in length (.pdf format) with a full introduction.

The Economic Case For Fixing Our #Calendar [Abbott ePub Blog]

Our economy is only now slowly clawing its way back to prosperity. There are some who argue that all other topics should take a back seat to solving our economic problems and getting people back to work.

That’s why, at first glance, talking about reforming the calendar seems like a waste of time. But in reality, it’s not, and there’s actually a great economic argument to be made that changing our old, antiquated calendar system could actually HELP the economy.

Dozens of great calendar reform ideas have been proposed. Many attempt to make the calendar perpetual, meaning that it would look exactly the same every year. Of course our Gregorian Calendar is not the same ever year, and does not look the same, but starts on different days of the week, has a variable length (depending on whether it's a leap year or not) and its quarters are uneven. Not so for these proposed calendars.

For example, the World Calendar proposal would start on a Sunday every year, and end on a Saturday every year. Each quarter would be exactly 91 days in length, making it easier for businesses to compare quarters.

The Symmetry454 Calendar also starts and ends on the same days ever year (starting on Mondays and ending on Sundays) and each quarter is also the same size, with the three months within each having 28, 35 and 28 days, respectively. The 18th day of the middle, 35-day month is the exact mid-point of each quarter, making it easier for businesses to use this as a “marker” to judge sales and progress, based on each quarter. By keeping the year at 364 days in length (367 every few years with the addition of a “leap week”) this proposal also makes comparing year-to-year sales easier.

Other calendar proposals also offer symmetry and balance in the place of the jumble of month lengths we currently use. The Sol Calendar, for example, has 13 months, each of exactly 28 days.

Each month begins on the same day of the week as January does in each calendar year. While business Quarters are not possible (since 13 is not divisible by 4) the equality of month lengths makes them comparable with one another. And it’s noteworthy that a 13-period financial calendar is already in wide use in business and accounting.

The New Earth Calendar proposal also contains 13 months of 28 days each, but starts each day of each month on a Monday by adding a leap week of seven days every 5 or 6 years.

The 30x11 Calendar concept is also among many that provides symmetry, with 11 straight 30-day months and one month, December, with 35 days (36 in leap years.) With a 35-day December, clearance sales would be easier to promote during the traditionally slow after-Christmas buying binge.

Business is always looking for simplicity and ways to better compare sales, costs and seasonal variations. By tinkering with our calendar design, we can offer businesses – small, large and multinationals alike – several advantages they don’t currently enjoy with the Gregorian Calendar.

5 Ways to "Re-Boot" Our #Calendar


Is our calendar perfect? Few would argue that it is. The number of days in each month are uneven, its quarters are unequal, and it's impossible to determine when on which day of the week any random date will fall.

But it turns out, there are many, many other - arguably better - ideas to reform it and make how we mark time more predictable and easier.

Here are just FIVE:

1. The 13-Moon Calendar. Inspired by the ancient Mayan Long-Count calendar, this proposal to reform the current Gregorian calendar re-names all the months, and introduces other innovations, including an extra month, which approximates many ancient calendars.

2. The Symmetry454 Calendar is a proposal by a Toronto university professor. It features four exactly equal quarters of 28-, 35- and 28-day months, making it easier to compare fiscal quarters. It's beautiful symmetry contrasts with the chaotic Gregorian.

3. The 13-month "Sol" Calendar updates an Old Idea - the 13- month year tied to the lunar cycle. This calendar's 13 months are all 28 days long, making it easy to remember the length of months. A leap year is added to the last month, December, and a new month, Sol, is added between June and July.

4. The New Earth Calendar is a bit of a hybrid - mixing the best elements of proposals like the Symmetry454 calendar and the 13 months of the Sol calendar.

5. Finally, the 30x11 Calendar is what its creator calls a "Gentle Update" of our current calendar. All of its months are 30 days long, except December, which rounds out the 365 or 366-day year with 35 or 36 days. It makes it incredibly easy to determine what day number each day on the calendar holds, and makes it easy to remember days.

All of these calendars - and MANY MORE - can be found EXCLUSIVELY on the new Abbott ePublishing eBook "A New Calendar for The World" available from the Abbott ePublishing website.
