Wor(l)d GN and Helo

I just have to bring this information here to this space because I KNOW that there are people out there with the vision and the passion for this...

A few weeks ago, I joined a company called Wor(l)d Global Network after completely LOSING MY MIND over their Helo product.



Let me tell you why...Helo is a health awareness band and the nurse in me absolutely LOST IT when I saw what this thing can do (and will do SOON!). It is like a FitBit on steroids...it does all the fitness tracking (heart rate, steps, calories, sleep etc.) that other wearable devices do but it also has the ability to do blood pressure, sense mood and fatigue, and it can even do a basic EKG (plus oodles of other amazing things!). WHAT?! And later this year it will be able to do non-invasive blood glucose monitoring, oxygenation, blood alcohol levels, and more!!!!


Yes, my mind was blown. How could it not be?! Imagine what this can do for people in terms of health awareness. The possibilities are flipping ENDLESS. ENDLESS!!

But then...oh, my friends, THEN...I immersed myself in learning about this business and my heart was lit on fire. Wor(l)d GN is going places and I want to be a part of that!

Did you know that Forbes has predicted the wearable device market to grow by $20 billion (TWENTY BILLION DOLLARS!!) over the next 2 1/2 years and Wor(l)d GN, being a network marketing company, plans to pay US (you and me) a portion of their share of that $20 billion (click here for full income disclosure).

Why network marketing? Because the CEO of the company, Fabio Galdi, is committed to network marketing because of its success with getting products into the hands of people. He recognizes that instead of paying a marketing company millions of dollars, he can put that money into the hands of REAL PEOPLE (aka: you and me) and change their lives.

Friends, this opportunity elevator is going to the top and it is about to leave ground floor...I want YOU in that elevator with me! Opportunity doesn't wait...the time is NOW!

I want to share this with you...contact me at: melissa.a.helo@gmail.com or leave a comment with your email address and be prepared to go ALL IN!

What Happened?

I've suddenly found myself at an interesting "phase" of life. I'm now that mom who looks at her friends with young babies and I feel everything. EVERYTHING.

All.

The. 

Things.

Like, when did I suddenly become the "old" mom of the group?

And, where did my babies go?

And, how on earth do I have a 21 year old?! TWENTY-ONE YEARS OLD, PEOPLE! How can that be when I feel like I'm only 26?!

Surely someone is playing tricks on me.

But then, something happens and I smacked upside the head with the reality that yes, indeed, I am that "old" mom. For example, my middle child broke his hand a couple of weeks ago. Broke a bone in his hand clear through...no teeny little fracture or anything, but a bonafide break. 

Once upon a time I would've been sick with worry. Probably teary eyed and weepy over the whole thing. I would've made him a bed on the couch and he would've gotten gifts to wish him well and I probably would've written a blog post about whilst he was getting his cast. But this time? Now that I'm an old seasoned mom?


Well, this time I waited it out through the whole gosh dang weekend. He broke it on a Friday evening at a birthday party but was insistent in his plea of "Don't pick me up mom, okay? DON'T PICK ME UP!" Poor kid didn't want to miss a moment of the party and I figured it couldn't have been that bad if he was unwilling to leave a birthday party. (Okay, fine, I may have said, "Well I'm not going to take you to the ER right now anyway!"...but still.)


When I saw his hand the next day, I knew it needed to be looked at, but I'll be a son of a gun if I was gonna take him to the ER, my nurse brain was telling me "well, they'd want the swelling to go down anyway", but just to make sure I wasn't doing him any harm, I asked a doctor friend of mine her take on us waiting until Monday to be seen and I got her approval.

So, Monday rolls around and long story short, sure as heck, the dang thing is broken. And we all (the nurse and PA)  got a good chuckle about "nurse mom's" and their poor kids.  No rookie tears here, just veteran laughs at the whole ordeal.


For the record, the PA said I made the right call about avoiding the ER...she said they would've splinted him and told us to follow up with Ortho on Monday. I just saved us that step! Yahoo!


In any event, I realized, as I was signing my son's cast (which, he is very proud of, as you can see in the above picture), what a stark contrast my response was to what it would've been several years ago.

Yup, I'm that old mom.

Guess it's time to embrace it.
