Rules

Be Kind and Courteous

Any rude, lude, or bashing comments will not be tolerated.

Be Constructive and Keep an Open Mind, Enjoy Criticism

The people commenting are a part of YOUR network.

Listen to them. They are here to help, not hurt.

Try not to take anything personally.

Support Each Other

You will see many things out in the world to try.

Tell a friend. Better yet bring a friend.

You may not see the direct benefit that supporting others has on you, your ideas and desires, and your business.

There is always a gain when supporting others.

The least you can do is check out their website, stop by, or even send an encouraging message!

No Adults Only Content

We all like to have fun.That is a legitimate community  category to create discussion and network together.

As the blog grows, I will consider adding a venue for the expressive purposes of that part of our community.

Save your comments for then.

No Profanity or Blatantly Offensive Comments

Our discussions may lead to some racy and heated topics, but we are all adults.

Pick up a thesaurus and find another way to express yourself.

No Spammers

You will be barred from posting.

Promoting yourself is one thing…but spamming is obnoxious and uncalled for.

Don’t try it here!

Relax, Have Fun, Learn, and Teach

This site is for everyone because we know everyone deserves a chance if they recognize the opportunity!
