Seeing Clearly

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Incendia Health. All opinions are 100% mine.

Our vision is one of our most prized possessions and having good vision is a gift many of us take for granted on a daily basis. I can't even imagine what a day must be like for people that have severe vision problems. Luckily today there have been many advancements in the form of Laser Surgery to correct vision problems. To celebrate the improvements corrective surgery can have in people's lives Abbot Medical Optics Inc. has lunched an awareness contest which allows people to submit video's of how laser surgery has improved their daily life. Check out the
iLASIK Video Contest now to see all the video's that have already been submitted and take the opportunity to submit your own story for a chance to win one of the fantastic prizes they are offering. The grand prize is $5000 and there are other prizes as well, 1st prize in each catagory is an HDTV package valued at $2500 and 2nd prize (again in each category) is a FlipHD camcorder valued at $199. It is very inspiring to check out all the videos that have been submitted so far to see what a differance these surgeries can have on someones life is so amazing. While visiting the site you can also get a listing of iLASIK Doctors in your area so you can book your consultation.

My Olympic Experience

I had an opportunity this week to run in the Olympic torch relay, I was a bit hesitant initially to accept this roll but I am very excited that I took the chance and did the run. The reality of this once in a lifetime opportunity hit home when I was standing with my torch awaiting the runner before me. That moment that we touched torches and my flame lit up was an awesome experience that I will remember for a lifetime. I would encourage everyone that has the opportunity to take part in the run as it comes through your community and support the runners as they pass by.

Financial Responsibilities

It can be a very awakening moment having children and a family when you start to realize how many lives actually depend on you for their emotional, physical and financial support. Life is one thing for sure and that is unpredictable so it is important to have a financial plan in place that will ensure the security of not only myself but my family as well. My expertise is not in financial planning so it was important to look at consulting with a Las Vegas CPA, Certified Professional Accountants, have the expertise needed to help look at my current financial condition and make a plan to help me achieve my financial goals.

Coffee Perks

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NESCAFE. All opinions are 100% mine.

When tough economic times hit it becomes important to start taking a review of your spending habits and cutting where you can. For me my one main vice is trips to the local coffee shop, at least a couple of times a day...sometimes more I will make the journey to the coffee shop and drop $2-$3 for a hot delicous cup of coffee, do I really need to do this, can I find a better way. Indeed it is time to break down and get a NESCAFE Dolce Gusto machine so I can make my own coffee in the comfort of home. The Dolce Gusto makes a variety of beverages from piping hot coffee to beautiful Iced drinks so it is very versitile and I can use it in the summer too when I normally convert to the iced mocha's etc. Now I can make my coffee and take it on the go with me in the morning, it will even save me time and allow me to get to work early instead of waiting in line at the drive thru window with all the other coffee addicts. If you want to find out how you can win one of these machines for your own home check out the link above.

Olympic Torch Relay

I had a great time at the Olympic Torch Relay, my kids ran along beside me as I carried the torch for my segment. I am waiting for the camera to come home so I can get the pictures uploaded so I will be back to add pictures from the event. I would highly recommend anyone that has the chance to check out the event as it travels through your community in the coming weeks.
