BioElectric Shield Sterling Silver with 14K Gold Tab Polished Finish

Who knew?

Who knew that spending time in front of your computer, or using a cell phone, flying on a plane, or even visiting the mall was hazardous to your health?

Electromagnetics are real and they affect you every day.  And if you are like me, you spend a great deal of time in front of a computer screen.

It zaps you. The electromagnetic radiation coming off the screen, from the fluorescent lights, buzzing out of the battery on your cell phone, is negativity affecting you all day every day. A whole host of new diseases is cropping up because of the amount of electromagnetic “noise” everywhere in modern society.

Tiredness and a poor immune system are just two of the symptoms. There are tons of others.

A recent medical study indicates that kids with cell phones are several times more likely to develop brain tumors than their peers who don’t use a cell phone. And it seems that its worse the younger the child.

Some people are highly sensitive to it and literally feel like they are being burned when they hold a cell phone or sit in front of a computer screen. Others are simply worn out at the end of the day after being in front of a computer screen or under fluorescent lights.

I’m sure you’ve heard that stress is bad. Well electromagnetic radiation has your body under stress all day. And fighting it is exhausting.

Luckily, thankfully, there are ways to shield yourself from this attack.


Dr. Wayne Dyer endorsing the BioElectric Shield


One of the best methods for electromagnetic shielding that I’ve found is the BioElectric Shield.

Back in the day, when I was an engineer working in a factory, surrounded by computers and other electronics, fluorescent lights and such, it was all I could do to get through the day. Then I heard about the BioElectric Shield.

I had tried other products on the market, but never could tell that they were doing anything.

I will never forget the day my BioElectric Shield arrived. I put it on and instantly felt all my muscle relax. It was like for the first time – ever – I wasn’t tense. My body had been trying to fight off the attack of the electromagnetic radiation for years. And, I wasn’t tired at the end of the day. Now that was something new. That was back in the mid-1990’s.

I’ve been wearing a BioElectric Shield ever since. I started with a sterling silver with brass tabs. I eventually upgraded to sterling silver with gold tabs – which my former husband managed to loose somehow. I’m now wearing an all-white gold shield. I would never sit in front of a computer, talk on a cell phone, or travel without one.

Have a delightful day,

Homeschooled kids are amazing!

One of my facebook friends just posted this link.

Cab-Schooled Student Earned Ticket To Harvard

You can read about, and listen to the story, here:

You go girl!

Yes, as a homeschool mom, I am a bit biased. Some pretty impressive people were homeschooled including Albert Einstein, the Wright Brothers, George Washington, Thomas Edison, and many others. There’s a pretty good list at this link:

The truth is, all kids are fabulous and my dearest hope and prayer is that they all grow up in the best environment possible to help them shine and become all that they can be. For some that is homeschooling. For others its public or private school. May they each be blessed with exactly what they need to succeed.

Want to know more about homeschooling, visit my site to learn more about what it is, the various forms it takes – including riding in a big rig – and if the choice might be right for you and your family.

Have a great day,

Summer is the time of doing. You definitely need to take some time for yourself and “be” every now and then. But primarily summer is the most activity laden season.

For those closer to the land, it is the time of working the fields, tending to the flowers, being outdoors and getting everything done to yield the best possible harvest.

The same is true of your life.

Actions need to be taken for the dreams and goals you have set. I’ve read recently, in a few newsletters and on facebook, the goal setting advice being spouted right now by personal/spiritual growth gurus. Step 1, Step 2, blah blah.

Sorry, it’s not time to plan, or dream, or sit around making your dream boards and posters.


It’s time to act.

I remember having dinner one night in Santa Fe with Andi and Jonathan Goldman. It was a very special occasion and I was honored to be included in their plans. It was their wedding anniversary – a wonderful time of celebration.

As we talked endlessly about life, what we’d been up to since our last time together, we got on the subject of “The Secret.” The movie had just been released. I already had a clear opinion about the matter. So I was quite curious to discover what Jonathan had to say about The Secret.

My take on The Secret is that there are lots of wonderful nuggets in there and I highly respect the participants in both movies. It’s just that there is a whole lot not being said, and what is said leads one to believe that you can sit in a lotus position and dream your life into being.

Hmmm . . . let’s see . . staring into the eyes of Jonathan Rhys Meyers or Taylor Lautner (wow, he’s young) . . . lol (laugh out loud) . . . not likely, but a fun exercise nonetheless.

Mark Joyner did an amazing job in the very first exercise of Simpleology 101 in making the truth so obvious about what you need to do to accomplish your dreams and goals. The exercise is hysterical and proves the point better than anything I’ve ever come across. I think I actually had tears running down my face because I was laughing so hard. Mark was brilliant, as usual! (

Back to the conversation – Jonathan said that he knows most of the folks in The Secret and they are all extremely powerful marketers.

We talked about having to take actions towards your dreams. I mentioned “inspired action” being significantly more productive and effective than just doing to be doing.

Yes you have to be crystal clear about what you want. You have to focus on it and let the Universe know what you want – using whatever means works best for you – visualization, saying it out loud, writing it down, making a dream board, etc.. And you have to align your values with your goals. You have to overcome your blocks to success and fears – that’s where a great deal of my work comes in.

But then you can’t sit there on your bloody ass – oh my heaven’s I said it, didn’t I – and expect to become famous, wealthy, successful, healthy, in love, traveling the world, blah blah. You have to take action.

And all the people in the Secret are fabulous at taking action. They put themselves out there. They stand on the stage. They put up the website. They write their books and get them published. They do radio and TV interviews.

Yes when you have raised your vibration and are in alignment with your Divine (Higher) Self, life does unfold in magical and mysterious ways. I am constantly in awe of how much that happens in my life. I am ever grateful and blessed by the synchronicity and help I receive on a daily basis. But I “do” all the time.

When I meditate, I receive inspiration about actions to take. And whenever I follow those inner promptings, the results always exceed my expectations. You do meditate every day don’t you?

You have to take action as well.

It’s summer.

We’ve already planted the seeds. Now get out there and make your garden (life) grow and prosper the way you are intending.

Have a great day,

Why Does Debbie Takara Shelor Have So Many Beaches on Her Websites

I’m sure if you’ve visited any of my websites or social media profiles, you’ve noticed a great deal of imagery dealing with water and tropical beach scenes.

There is a reason.

And it’s not just that I love the ocean or tropical beaches. I do love those.

I love dolphins too! But that’s a story for another time.

There are numerous reasons for choosing tropical beach scenes to represent me and my business.

It has to do with stress relief!

I can’t think of anything more relaxing than:

  • beautiful turquoise seas,
  • white sandy beaches,
  • palm trees,
  • you and your friends kicking back sipping mai tai’s or some other exotic drink.

Life is good.

There is no stress.

Having me on board your personal yacht (business), making sure things are being taken care of properly, lets you relax and enjoy running the rest of your business as only you can. It’s like enjoying your relaxing time at the beach. You can be confident that your online presence is being handled.

Without me, the best case scenario has you spending countless hours and dollars lost in a little raft (your website) in the middle of the ocean (the internet) with no shore in sight. Worst case you are being eaten alive by sharks. That would be your competition that has a clue about internet marketing.

You can hang out at the beach letting me assist you in handling all the details of running a successful on-line business.

Or you can go it alone.

The choice is yours!

Have a fabulous day,

SEO Web Design Marketing PR Local Search

Online Business Success SEO Web Design Marketing PR Local Search

The Good Old Days

In the not so distant past, online business success could happen with a nice sign out front, a small ad in the local paper or yellow pages, and maybe an actual mailed advertisement every now and then. Believe it or not, you could run your entire business without a computer.

Wow, how times have changed!

You Are Now Living in the Digital Information Age

People under 30 don’t subscribe to newspapers anymore. Why look something up in the yellow pages, when you can go online or search for something on your iPhone? Why listen to the radio and all their disruptive ads when you can get commercial free satellite radio listening to only the type of music you enjoy most?

A recent study indicates that 79% of English-speaking American adults use the internet. The iPad sold over 2 million units in its first 60 days. There are 6.7 billion people on the planet and 61% of them have a cell phone subscription.

106 million people have Twitter accounts. Every day another 300,000 people sign up for Twitter. 37% of Tweets (messages posted on Twitter) are sent from a cell phone.

Facebook has over 400 million active users. That’s active users. Over 50% of those active users log in on any given day.

With the addition of social media (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, MySpace, LinkedIn), the internet has changed dramatically.

A Website for Your Business Isn’t Enough

Even having a website isn’t enough to be successful in today’s competitive marketplace. With eBay and Amazon selling everything from used books to health food,  it takes more than putting up a nice website to keep your company competitive.

Having a Web site and Having Online Business Success is a Lot Like Writing a Book

An author takes about 6 months to 2 years to write a book. Then they spend the rest of their life promoting it. Having an online presence is a very similar endeavor. It’s not enough to have a great looking website. It takes smart and consistent work with a website or blog and multiple social media profiles to have people find your business among the 234 million websites out there.

Being on the First Page of Google Matters

When a person types in words in a search box to find your website or blog, it matters where you show up in the results.

I wish I could remember who said this in order to give due credit. But, I’ve been on-line for 10 years and I’ve read thousands of articles, books, and blogs on internet marketing. The best comment about where you want your internet business to be was this: Would you rather have your business out in a corn field or downtown Manhattan?

Just putting up a website and doing no promotion is like sticking it out in the middle of a corn field. No one is going to find you. You’ll be paying for hosting, a web designer,  a domain name, and a whole bunch of other services and it won’t get you even one web visitor.

Working with someone like myself, an online business success consultant who specializes in social media management and marketing, is what you need to get your business on the first page of Google and other search engines.  That’s the equivalent of putting your business downtown Manhattan. If you sell real estate in Birmingham, when someone is searching for Birmingham Real Estate, if you don’t show up on page 1 of Google results, no one is going to visit your website. You might as well not even have one.

You can use pay per click advertising and get listed above your competitors. But that can get very expensive very quickly.

Being on the Internet is a Bit Like Being on Mars

It’s a very different world than your brick and mortar business on main street. It has its own language.  It is continuously changing. And to win the internet game, you have to learn and master every aspect of it even as it’s changing.

Anyone can throw up a website or blog. To be successful on the web, you have to do significantly more, And every step and component counts.

Why Hire an Online Business Success Consultant?

An Online Business Success Consultant is a person that already knows the internet inside and out. They have ample experience with traditional websites, blogs, social media, search engine optimization (SEO), and much more. You can read about the important aspects of an internet business here.

They have already successfully put their own websites, and those of their clients, on the first page of Google and other search engines for the important terms being searched by their prospective clients and customers.

They look at your business and the on-line presence you are wanting to create, and they help you put together a winning game plan by:

  • doing advanced keyword research to find out what people are searching who might be looking for you and your products or services,
  • helping you choose the best domain name for your site or blog,
  • recommending web designers, web hosts, domain registrars, autoresponder services,  social media sites, and other services,
  • picking topics for articles, press releases, blog, and social media posts to rank well on search engines and get targetted visitors to your site,
  • helping you determine if you need to get into mobile websites and text message advertising,
  • ensuring that your site(s) and media profiles stay updated with fresh content,
  • analyzing every aspect of your on-line presence on an ongoing basis to determine what is working well and what needs to be changed,
  • making changes to the plan as the business and the internet changes, and
  • keeping you updated with trends and laws that can impact your online business success.

There’s more of course.

The bottom line is this . . . to be successful in business, you must have a web presence. The only web presence worth having is one in which you dominate your market.

An Online Business Success Consultant is your secret weapon for making that happen.
