The following article appeared as the Letter of the Day in the Times & Transcript on Wednesday, March 12, 2014. This is dedicated to all who have the courage to follow your dreams by starting a home business.

Never diminish humble beginnings and where you are at right now. When I think of my home business journey since leaving the corporate world over 3 years ago I know now that I am fulfilling my dreams and helping others discover theirs.

Home Entreprenuers lift NB’s Economic Tide

Has anyone even noticed that the economic landscape throughout New Brunswick has changed? We see the obvious drivers in the economy as forestry, mining, farming, fishing and tourism, as well as a growing demand in food service, food processing, retail and call centers – mostly minimum wage part-time jobs.

What we fail to recognize is this ignored emerging economy in home based entrepreneurship. The majority of these home businesses actually fall in the Direct Sales profession. It is believed that most homes in New Brunswick have a product or service that was purchased from a friend in Direct Sales; such as cosmetics, personal care, jewelry, kitchen ware, food and health supplements, home décor, or clothing.

These home based entrepreneurs are easy to find as you can see them at the local markets, at wellness fairs, all over social media, as well as many other public venues throughout our communities. We are your neighbors who work out of our basements, in our living rooms, and out of our home offices.

Individually we may appear small and insignificant but collectively we are well connected to the emerging global economy through technology, social media and the internet. We do not ask for or need government handouts. We are this new breed of professional entrepreneurs who are creating New Brunswick as an interesting destination. Many of us are doing business all over the world educating consumers and offering our products and services right from our homes, and right across the street in your neighborhood.

If I was the Editor of this newspaper I would seek out these unique individuals and feature their stories to highlight examples of those who are out there in our communities creating their own career path, carving their way through this tough economy and generating their own financial stability. There is another story here besides the corporate and government doom and gloom that we all read in the news.

Many of us have interesting stories that lead us to decide why we do what we do, what drives us to continue every day, and the value we bring back into the local economy. These stories might just encourage someone else to step out and fulfil their dreams in a province that so desperately needs to understand that things have changed forever.

Doctors Recommend Matcha

Did you know that doctors encourage cancer patients to consume Matcha to suppress the growth of cancer tumors?

Matcha is so powerful that 1 cup of Matcha is equivalent to 10 cups of green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content. Matcha is so potent that it is said to help slow the growth of cancer tumors and stimulate healing.

Matcha is 137 times more potent than regular green tea

In 2003, the University of Colorado published a report about the potency and concentration of EGCG, this powerful antioxidant found in green tea. The researchers found that Matcha green tea contained up to 137 times more than regular green tea. Now that is powerful!

Antioxidant in Matcha

Matcha is enriched with Catechins, a type of EGCG antioxidant found in the greatest abundance in the leaves of the Matcha tea plant. In smaller amounts, they are found in other foods such as berries and apples.

Dr. Oz has called Matcha, “his secret ingredient for its metabolism-boosting properties, which is prized in Japan for its health-benefits. When you drink it, you ingest the full tea leaves and all its healthful nutrients. It has great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.”

Dr Oz – stress-reducing and weight-loss benefits

In a recent segment that aired on January 14, Dr. Oz asked his TV audience: “What if you could boost your immunity, control your stress and lose weight with one simple drink?” With his guest, Medicine Hunter Chris Kilham, explained how you can do this with Matcha.

Dr. Oz calls Matcha “a Fat Blocker”. He also says, “it boosts metabolism and burns fat”.

Dr Oz was excited about Matcha containing about three times more beneficial polyphenols than regular green tea – enhancing its ability to support immune function and reduce cardiovascular disease risk – he was as enthusiastic about revealing that Matcha also works as a fat blocker.

In the segment Oz explained that Matcha blocks the ability of digestive enzymes break down fat, a step necessary for fat to enter our cells. So instead of absorbing and storing the fat, it gets passed through the body.
