Natural Jerky Making Business Startup: How to Start, Run & Grow a Profitable Beef Jerky Business From Home!

by Jim Davis

Natural Jerky Making Business Startup

How to Start, Run & Grow a Profitable Beef Jerky Business From Home!

I am a retired butcher; I worked with meat products for 37 long years, so the meat has been a big part of my life. As a hobby, I started experimenting with making various types of jerky in my free times, and soon I realized this is a very addictive, fun and rewarding hobby. The way I discovered the rewarding part was when one day just for fun I set up a table at the local flea market to see if anyone would be interested in trying my jerky. I took roughly about 25 lbs. supply with me. At first, I just ask random people if they wanted to try a sample of my creation. 6 out of 10 people I asked agreed and most of them liked the taste of the jerky enough that they bought from me. To my surprise, in just two hours I was completely sold out with enough request and orders for the next week that I was blown away.

Long story short, I became a regular at the flea market and typically sold about 150-250 lbs. of jerky each weekend. From there I was approached by a grocery company that sells to gas stations and convenience stores in 5 states. But to sell to this grocery company, I had to come up with high-quality packaging, which I did. It took about two months to get all the details worked out, and then I started to wholesale to this company. Their average monthly order grew from just 500lbs the first months to little over 2500 lbs. in just five months. Once again I was blown away with the demand.

Fast forward nine years, I sold my business for a decent price and decided to retire and enjoy life a little.

I wrote this book to show you that if I can do it, I know anyone can. I was not even a good cook if you don’t believe me just ask Ann, my wife of 35 years, she will tell you.

In this book, I share all the inner workings of jerky and how to get started in Jerky business. I get down to the nitty-gritty of meat and how the process works and what and how you can get started.

Growing Gills: How to Find Creative Focus When Youâ??re Drowning in Your Daily Life

by Jessica Abel

Go from overwhelmed, anxious, and stuck, to consistent, clear, and in control of your creative life.

If you feel like you’re floundering in the deep end (Not waving, drowning!), and anxiety over the complexity and enormousness of your creative projects overwhelms you, stop scrambling to fit everything in and feeling stretched thin.

  • Sustain the energy you feel when thinking of how awesome your projects could be.
  • Value your own creative work as highly as work you do for other people.
  • Build a reusable structure and process that will consistently get you to the finish line.
  • Blast through your stuck-ness.
  • Focus. Finish. Move on to the next project.

You’re a creative person. Even if you have a hard time calling yourself a “writer” or an “artist” in public, making your creative work is core to who you are and how you see the world. You may be harboring a big, ambitious idea for a project. Possibly a lot of them.

And it’s killing you.

You lie awake thinking about itâ?¦and hating yourself for not doing more to make it real. And then in the morning you’re exhausted, and you can’t believe you “wasted” more time on this stupid idea. Who ever told you you were creative anyway? You try to shove your idea away, to forget it. But your creative work is what keeps you sane. You can’t not do this. So you live with guilt and anxiety all the time.

You’ve tried to carve out the time and attention you need to devote to your creative work. You’ve made ambitious goals, you’ve written lists, you’ve scheduled calendarsâ?¦you’ve installed shackles on your desk chair. But chaining yourself to your work only seems to make you more distractible and more miserable. (And those unsightly leg sores!)

Maybe you’ve even tried to borrow time-management tips from the business world. Get things done! Build seven habits! Eat that frog! But following business-minded productivity systems just doesn’t work for you. The issue isn’t simply getting “things” done, it’s allowing yourself to devote precious time and attention to the vital, self-generated creative work that builds toward your vision for the future.

The problem is, the life you’re living is already full. You’ve made a lot of promises, to yourself, your family, your friends, and your community, that you’ll be there for them. You probably have a job; you may have kids. You may well have many competing ideas for your creative work. Where, exactly, can you find that mythical Creative Focus Unicorn?

In Growing Gills, you’ll discover that the power is already within you to make your work.

The biggest obstacles to your getting your important creative work done lie in the unknowns you’re facing.
Growing Gills takes you step by step through the process of pinning down exactly what’s stopping you from finishing your beautiful, inventive, and potentially game-changing projects.

Using the power of conscious decision, you’ll build your own unique system for fitting creative work into your existing life, taking into consideration how you work best.

Like a custom-designed, powered exoskeleton, your personal system will bolster and support your creative practice day in and day out, so that you can grow up and grow old while continuing to make your creative workâ?¦without chucking out all the other connections to your family and the world that make your life rich and worth living.

GROWING GILLS: Breathe in the deep end.

With your purchase of the ebook or print edition, you’ll also get:

  • The Growing Gills Workbook for free
  • A checklist to identify what specifically stands in your way
  • An invitation to a 5-day free minicourse where you’ll build a plan to overcome those obstacles.

21 Best Superfood Cacao Recipes – Discover Superfoods #1: Cacao is Natureâ??s healthy and delicious superfood chocolate you can enjoy even on a weight loss or low cholesterol diet!

by Donna Davidson

Can so-called â??Superfoods’ really help you be healthier and feel better? Good question.

Co-author, Donna Davidson, says, I’m often asked things like, “Can learning how to make chocolate recipes and homemade chocolates from a costlier raw, organic version of chocolate really be so much better for you?” Or, “Can Cacao and other so-called ‘superfoods’ seriously contribute to a low cholesterol diet or help someone trying to achieve weight loss, or battle debilitating health problems?”

Actually, that’s exactly what happened for me. Today, 5 years on from my first tentative superfoods â??experiments’, I’m healthier and feeling better than I had felt for years, in my â??pre-superfoods’ days. And I’m not alone.”

Here are just 3 stories from ordinary people trying out superfoods for themselves:

Annemarie: Nick, my husband, has been using the green smoothie powder and is really noticing the benefits – he is a landscaper so needs the energy – plus he has sinus problems and this has really helped with that as well. Brilliant.

Sigrid: Still going strong with the smoothies and have one most days. Really like them and I think they are helping me cope with the stresses of my current life – very sick husband, work, coping with ten staff, visitors and the rest of the daily grind.

Michele M: I am having a smoothie every morning and my Green Smoothie Shot and the great thing is, I have been able to stop taking the Laxsol tablets that I have had to take for years. I decided to stop taking them straight away because they aren’t life threatening (just uncomfortable if this didn’t work) to see if the Chia seeds and Green Smoothie Shot made any difference immediately. I’m pleased to say it has and I’m (as) â??regular as clock-work’ without medicationâ?¦ wahoo! Now for the extra good news, I have lost 2kgs in just under 2 weeks of using the Chia Seeds, Cacao Powder and Green Smoothie Shot – so the products are obviously cleansing my body well. I’m using all natural 100% pure coconut water in my smoothies and a frozen banana which is awesome. Thank you so much for your recommendations and supplying such great products.

These stories are fairly typical of the feedback we get from people open enough to give superfoods a go. Over the past 5 years, I discovered I have a hidden talent for persuading superfood sceptics to give them a try – by simply relating my own story to them. Almost all reported experiencing the same increased sense of well-being and improved mental acuity that I’d found; while others also gained relief from persistent and debilitating health issues – which I similarly achieved after adding superfoods into my regular diet (not changing anything else in my diet at the time) by the simple means of drinking a delicious green smoothie every morning.

Donna and Kay both agreed that Cacao would be the perfect superfood for book #1 – because everyone loves chocolate right? And healthy, or certainly healthier, ways to enjoy chocolate have got to be a great addition to any chocolate lover’s recipe book collection. So, with Kay cracking the whip and Donna creating, making, baking, eating and perfecting the recipes, this â??Discover Superfood Series #1: 21 Best Cacao Recipes’ was born.

Kay says,”Just try some of these wonderful Cacao (natural organic chocolate) recipes for yourself and I think you’ll love them as much as we do! Enjoyed in moderation, (for sadly, you can even eat too much raw organic chocolate) these 21 best cacao recipes will be a lot healthier and better for you than the sugar and chemical-filled, commercial chocolate products at your local supermarket.

This book (and the rest of the Discover Superfoods Series to come) is designed to be an easy introduction to superfoods; simple recipes, easy to make, absolutely delicious. If you downloaded this book you are either a â??superfoods newbie’ or an existing fan looking for some new ideas. Either way this book is perfect for you.

THE HISTORY OF THE DEVIL (The Political and the Religious Aspects – Devil’s Role in the History of Civilization): Complemented with the Biography of the Author

by Daniel Defoe

The Political History of the Devil is a philosophical and historical work in which Defoe explores the role of the Devil in the history of civilization. It may be said that his view on this topic is that of an 18th-century Presbyterian – he blames the Devil for the Crusades and sees him as close to Europe’s Catholic powers. General scholarly opinion is that Defoe really did think of the Devil as a participant in world history. He spends some time discussing Milton’s Paradise Lost and explaining why he considers it inaccurate. Daniel Defoe (1660-1731) was an English trader, writer, journalist, pamphleteer, and spy, most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe. Defoe is noted for being one of the earliest proponents of the novel, as he helped to popularize the form in Britain with others such as Samuel Richardson, and is among the founders of the English novel. He was a prolific and versatile writer, producing more than five hundred books, pamphlets, and journals on various topics, including politics, crime, religion, marriage, psychology, and the supernatural.
