Amazon, the company,seems to be everywhere, much like the river in South America it was named after. Amazon started in 1995 with a single book sale out of Jeff Bezos’ Seattle area garage and has since grown to over 135 billion of revenue in 2016.
Here’s a bit of the history of Amazon’s stock price and revenue over the years
Who knows where/what Amazon will go or do next but it’s obvious that Amazon is here to stay and has forever changed the shopping landscape.You can use Amazon to buy just about anything, from just about anywhere and have it show up where you want it in as quick as a couple of hours. Wow, talk about convenience!
I’ve been a user/fan of Amazon for nearly 20 years.
The question is, “Is Amazon good for you, or it an evil scheme to get all your money? Let’s explore that a little more and see what the answer might be.
The answer? It’s both good and evil, depending how you utilize it:
Visit CamelCamelCamel as a resource for price checking on items you may be considering.
Use Google Shopping or some other similar service to research/check prices.
Meditation is one of the best things you can do to relex, destress, re-energize and improve your life. Unfortunately meditation has also gotten a reputation of being difficult, time consuming and elitist. Well, it isn’t any of those at all. You can realize the benefits of meditation in a very short time. How short? How about 8 minutes!
8 Minute Meditation is a fantastic, easy to use book. I’ve been using the book to help me meditate for several years now. While I find myself being slightly sporadic in my practice of meditation (I haven’t done it in a few months), whenever I do make a commitment to it I realize the benefits almost immediately (within a couple of days). I will usually meditate either when I first get up or right before I go to bed.
