Middle Of The Summer And Picking Up Momentum

What The Hell, I am Taking It Off Line

In case this happens to be your first time visiting my little space here on the web my name is Larry Rivera. For the most part I bought the domain LarryRivera.com because it’s my name. I guess you can say I am serial blogger as I write in several other blogs. It seems when ever I come to this one I am never to sure what to say.  Lately though I just bought myself a Canon EOS Rebel T4i. I have to say I love the camera.

Here are some of the shots I’ve gotten with this camera

I am finally starting to do some off line networking.  I decided that I am taking my home business off line. I want to help as many people as I can break the chains of financial bondage & slavery. What I have discovered is that there are many people out there who would love to start a profitable home business they just don’t know how. What’s exciting is that it’s rather easy once you embrace the idea that making money is easy.

To many people struggle needlessly financially. I suppose a lot of it has to do with what our parents taught us as well as the school systems. We aren’t really taught to be free thinkers, rather we are taught to be part of the herd.

Here are some shots from my first off line networking event.

Staying Consistent In Action – The Path To Life Long Success

I was just thinking today how so many people start something and never finish what it is they started.  It seems when the going get’s ruff people just quit.  I am sure we all deal with our own demons in our own way.

I find it hard to believe though that by giving up on something you really wanted to accomplish will satisfy you. I think by giving up on something you wanted a little piece of you is torn away. We tend to live in the moment, so in the moment it seems like giving up is the easy way out of something.

…In truth;

Giving up only causes you to get depressed and feel like a failure. Nobody says you have to get to where you are going right away. I am a very happy guy. I love life, I love what I do but only because I have never given up on myself.

That’s what this blog post is about today, not giving up on your dreams.

Don’t sacrifice your dreams and ambitions, stay the course no matter how long it takes to get you there. All other roads leave you unfulfilled and always wondering what if. I talk to people all the time who are unhappy in their lives.

I doesn’t and shouldn’t be that way. Ironically we create our own sadness if you will. It’s a quite sadness that nobody else knows about. If you ask me it’s the worst kind. It’s the kind that leads to depression and other ugly emotions.

The simple fix if you will is just to decide once and for all your not giving up. EVER!  That YOU are going to do it! And your going to keep doing it and doing it till you get the results you want.

That’s my rant for the day!

…Well we survived yet another end of the world scare.

As we trek forward into the unknown of 2013 it’s time to take a look back to see how far we have come and look to the future. Years past I use to write a list of resolutions, but I found that writing that list did nothing for me in terms of keeping my goals. Then again, I have never wrote my list on my blog so this is a first and maybe this blog post will help keep me accountable to my goals for 2013.

My New Year’s Resolution List For 2012

When I turned 30 I decided  I wasn’t getting any younger and now would be a good time to start getting in shape. I ended up getting in the best shape of my life. I went from 225 to about 175. I maintained that weight for about 5 years and then took a year off. In that year I gained back 25 pounds. I find myself again battling my genes. This time around though, I plan on getting in even better shape than I was even 3 years ago.

The end of 2011 into 2012 I started a new home based business.  I joined Empower Network. I have been involved with online marketing for about 12 years now. I actually did struggle for many years. It always seemed like no matter how much money I spent, I just couldn’t crack the code. What I discovered is it wasn’t my effort that was the problem it was the commissions structure. Simply put I earned to little bit of money to create any meaningful results.

I made really good money last year in Empower Network, the commissions structure is solid, the company is solid the best part is I have been looking for a program for years that would take a person by the hand and literally show them step by step what they have to do to be successful online.

There is a lot of buzz going on about empower network. If your into home business you should really take a look at this, like now! –-> Click Here

I continue to train in my martial arts. –> It’s been about 18 years now that I started my journey in Kung Fu. Specifically Wing Chun, Tai Chi, Chi’na. My study into internal martial arts has given me great insight to what is possible with the human body.

What I Hope To Accomplish In 2013

As I said in the beginning of this post, I struggled online for many years. Empower Network is the closest I have come to realizing my online dreams and ambitions. This year I plan making even more money and helping more people see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I will loose that bothersome 25lbs I put on last year…

…Last but certainly not least I plan on continuing striving to be a good Husband & Father 🙂

Here’s wishing you a very Happy New YEAR!!!!!

Really It’s Old Yeller’s Fault | Crazy Dog Wedding

So Why Am I Blaming Old Yeller

I remember watching that movie in the 3rd grade. I think I was the only boy in my class who’s eyes were welling up when poor Old Yeller bit the dust. I think though that movie effected me for the rest of my life because I have always had a soft spot for animals.

Maybe that’s why I have 3 dogs and 8 cats.. Sure that might sound extreme to you but all my animals have been rescued because nobody else wanted them. Which brings me to this blog post. Just recently I attended a dog wedding.

Did you just say a dog wedding Larry?

I did 🙂 but the story behind the wedding is what is really important. The story itself  is very well documented. So I don’t need to add a lot of details. But I did commit to my wife that I would share the story on all of my blogs. The reason I am doing it is because I am showing my support for a cause that is worthy of support.

You can read more about the event here:

(This Is Serious) They Are Still Using Gas Chambers

As for my part I never considered myself an animal activist. But I am an animal lover. I love my dogs,cats and any other critter that happens my way. I feel it’s our duty as humans to care for these animals, especially ones we call pets.

Here is video footage I took of the event

Our newest edition to our family was actually suppose to be a foster dog. But when my wife brought her home she jumped on my lap and that was it. Hook , line and sinker… We got her from the same shelter that was gassing animals to death..

Here is a picture of Miss New Jersey with our Rosie


Here is the link to the article I wrote about this story again 🙂

So June Was A Very Busy Month For Me (But I Had A Great Time)

I find myself trying to catch my breath here. In the beginning of the month I went To Atlanta Georgia For The First Ever Empower Network Event. That’s me with the awesome Tracy Walker. I learned a lot about the internet network marketing community and I learned a lot about direct sales.  If your interested in bettering your life or finding a bit more financial security look into starting a internet home based business.  It can be a lot of fun and if you work with the right people it’s actually kinda easy to get started.

That’s not all I did in June though

I also spent time with my family camping in Assateague Maryland. That was fun though hot,


I shot a few videos while I was there. This is one I did while on a bike ride with the kid.

What I find to be absolutely amazing is the kinda of lifestyle that marketing online has provided me. I am not a very materialist person.


Being able to to spend time with my family and traveling is something I do like to do. I couldn’t do that stuff if I had a regular 9 to 5 job.  So I still have some stuff to do this month, I just wanted to drop a quick hello.

Talk to you all soon ,
