Tribute to those who've helped us grow
Since we have so many distributors I thought it would be nice to acknowledge them. We have some great people doing great things with Mind Alive products, whether it's helping children, people with brain injuries or suffering from pain among the many other uses of AVE, CES and tDCS. Many of them help me out by clicking "like" on Facebook and participating in discussions. Our products are always hard to sell, because of a strong educational component that needs addressing. Yeah, it's a bit difficult to help people understand that flashing lights and sounds can relieve their aches and pains.
I'd like to give back by maybe starting to blog about small business since I come across different articles about social media and tips and tricks about growing a small business.

Post Traumatic Stress in Children
She was home a lot with me, which helps her regulate greatly, but for the first time ever!?, she was able to remain calm and in control while her brother tried to act silly and get "her going" with his antics (which ALWAYS sends her spiraling out of control, laughing crazily and ends with her hitting and pinching him, etc-- they feed off each) but she remained with me calm, ignoring his silliness...I think that was a HUGE moment.
She was also very CALM around her baby cousins (babies are a huge trauma trigger due to severe neglect) and actually said: I LIKE babies NOW. Another potentially HUGE step in her transitioning. Actually, I just remembered, that I held my baby niece a lot (which typically triggers her anger and insecurity causing her to be be very angry, jealous and pulls away from me -- she did none of this??) She played with her two year old cousin, and thought she was cute...which 2 year olds are the greatest trigger (we adopted her when 2 -- it was NOT an easy transition)...
The last week or two, she wanted to be very close to me, and has said she missed me at school, and has slept in our room to be close and safe...these are all positive changes...I pray we keep moving forward....
