Striking Up Conversations Form Business Alliances

Oh My Gosh!   Here is it week number five of the PAC Blogging Carnival.  


I have never had a problem talking to people.  You could consider me being a social butterfly.  I love to move around the room at a party or get together and meet and greet people.  Connecting with people is fascinating to me .  Finding out where they’re from, what they do, how much did she pay for those shoes all goes through my mind.  Getting the first word in gives me an edge on building a trusting relationship, if even only for a few minutes.

Once I made up my mind to become a serious blogger I started making connections with other bloggers who shared the same values, provided their readers with integrity and honest articles.  

One of my  PAC fellow authors Barrie Evans writes about developing alliances and value with cooperation in business.  Relationships help us to build a solid  foundation in our business practices.




Sometimes I myself forget that I too am able to obtain all of my goals.  Meeting and connecting with the Power Affiliate Club has given me a new edge on blogging and learning from some of the best in the business.

For Example

 Claudia Peevy is great with showing others attraction marketing.  Check out her site I think you will be impressed.

 Emi Koulev I really admire her style of writing. Recently she published her first book The Cake Decorating Series Of Sugarcraft is informative and gives great details into working with fondant and cake decorating. 

Building these relationships has been fun and exciting for me.  I am meeting new people from all walks of life.  I haven’t met each one of the personally and who knows if I ever will, the one thing I can testify to is that because of building these alliances I am becoming a better communicator, writer and friend.

I cherish each and every person I meet along the way. Listening, smiling and taking advice as well as dishing it out.  My journey is still on going and I am by far an expert on blogging.  Continue to read on with me and I write away to new things.

Last month I published my first article for the Power Affiliate Club as an Expert Author. At first I thought I had everything perfect and I submitted my article for review before publishing.

Lesly Federici the editor was gracious, caring and loving for advice with making all the right tweaks for obtaining the perfected product.

download (1)
Powering through — all the necessary corrections and revisions was wearing me down. I was so agitated and angry at myself that I felt like giving up. I did not quit! I kept on pursuing the end goal. What was the end goal, your asking? To become more proficient at writing a blog, attracting new readers to my site, engagement with others.
Taking the necessary steps

  • Decision – deciding what to write about was hard for me at first. I don’t want to become “another one of those bloggers” stigma types. I choose to write about RAISE THE BAR OF YOUR POSTS WITH PICTURES .
  • Taking The Journey – I was excited and ready to share what I had written. Then Lesly Federici in her loving and caring way would guide me towards focusing my attention to little details such as wording, learning how to master writing skills and more.
  • FOCUSED – Oh sure I was discouraged at times. Once I was so mad at myself I wanted to throw in the towel. The rewriting, and rewriting, deleting, and adding more became overwhelming at times. Becoming an expert author was everything I had worked so hard for in 2015.

I had to stay FOCUSED!
Finally Success!
Finally I achieved my end goal. The finished product was now worthy to be published on the PAC website. Lesey Federici had this to say:
“From the Editor,
This is Alicia’s first published article on the PAC Community Blog! After many drafts we finally have a finished post. What’s important to note here is PAC helps new bloggers, as well as seasoned ones, to hone their blogging skills. Writing is a big one to master – if it ever is. It’s an ongoing skill that is constantly revisited and explored. PAC gives new bloggers, like Alicia, the opportunity to enhance their writing skills, experience as a blogger and what’s involved, and writing for the PAC Community Blog. We all start somewhere and we only get better at what we do through experience. Congratulations Alicia! We look forward to more posts from you!
Lesly Federici “

The little voice inside my head said, “Hey You! Give UP! Quit!”
Focusing all my energy to having an awesome published product was hard.
Moving toward the goal was worth the struggle, the tears and the sweat. I gained so much more in the end. Seeing my idea and words come to life on a page with a final finished version.

As Always,
Gain The Advantage!

Learning To Take Actions


Three years ago I decided to start blogging more seriously about internet marketing, entrepreneurship, being an independent business owner and some things about life.


Making a decision to change a technique, business ventures, careers or anything takes action. Deciding to become  a series blogger,  one of the first steps I took was to search the internet for blogs and blogging advice.  

According to  How many posts are being published?  (There are about 58.3 million new posts and 43.8 million new comments each month). MIND BLOWING!

My Improvements

How was I going to improve upon what I started?   Searching and searching the internet is confusing, and overwhelming to say the least.  During my search I found a little community called MLSP My Lead System Pro which lead me to eventually meet a community called the Power Affiliate Club.   Yes I write about PAC a lot.  Search my blog and you will understand why.  PAC’s Infectious Mission

Action Creates Learning

Taking the actions necessary to become a better writer, author and presenter has led me to where I am today, an expert Power Affiliate Club Author. Looking back over the last three years, I have looked at my articles from when I combined my two blogs.  Honestly I now see the major difference in my tenacious appetite to become the best.

I had to learn how to make words flow together, to include images, improve my blog site by adding more content for readers to view and hopefully interact.

 When  you consider the  fact that there are over 58.3 million new blog posts a month and over 43.8 million views, how can a blogger survive?

Necessary Steps

Finding the necessary steps to my journey started with a thought.  Searching throughout the world-wide web for answers.  Being teachable, willing to learn and implementing those concepts and ideas.

Becoming more involved with the blogging community, reading positive mindset books, listening to CD’s.  Basically doing anything to improve my mindset as well as my blogging skills. When a person does the  investigating and implementing then a true learning curve can begin.

These are the actions that I took necessary to achieve my goal to become a writer and blogger.

I am so overwhelmed today. I opened up my blog site to sit down and write and found out that one of my readers ( Sweta Ojha) has nominated my blog for the Liebster Award. Thank you Sweta Ojha for this honor.


The Liebster Award is an award that exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.

5. Which is better – to speak a lie that saves or a truth that kills?
I see it depending on the situation.

Writing for pleasure.
