How Not To Be Like My Cat
By Pattie Arnold

beacon rock

My cat Tac, has to be the most interesting study in human behavior that I have had in a while. 

We just moved and after a week he still is totally rocked.  He was never one to like change anyway, when he was just a kitten, we brought home a new dog and it took him about 2 weeks to even be in the same room with the new beast.  Then the new kitten arrived, and he never accepted him.  His personality changed completely.  He went from a loving cuddly cat to a vicious snarlly, hissing ball of standing on end fur.  After Wilson's untimely run in with the car, Tac, became the loving cuddly fur ball that I loved. 

Then when we found Abby the perfect home, complete with retired owners who hiked and boated, Tac became the playful kitten that he was before Abby arrived.  Now, since his long ride in the airplane (about 11 hours in the dreaded carrier), he has become a very vocal complainer.  I never realized that cats could still howl when they were tranqed up, Tac taught me that.  So, anyway, he's very vocal now.  He's also an outdoor cat.  He'd much prefer to be outside than in.  That is when it's warm, sunny, and slightly breezy outside.  St Thomas fits his criteria quite well, but it's all too new.

Since we have arrived, he has longingly looked out the windows and complained that he is not out there.  So, being the good person that I am to him, I open the door to let him out.  No such thing, it's way too different!  Did you know that St Thomas smells different than Carson, WA?  I was out on the deck one morning, with him and Katy (the black lab mix that we've had for almost 10 years and the one that raised Tac) when he jumps from the deck to the ground below.  The jump is about 12 feet, and when I realize that he is missing, I figured that i would find him lying at the bottom of the deck with a broken leg or something.  Nope!  I search all over the place for him.  Calling his name, and looking.  Finally, I hear him returning my call.  He's wedged himself under a rock trying to get away from the dog next door that is safely behind a fence.  He was scared so badly that he couldn't move.  I had to climb the hillside, stick my hand into the cubbyhole that he was in and pull him to safety.  Since he has been slowly going outdoors, but he is still very unsure, even when I'm with him.  He allows his fears to get in the way of his enjoyment of life.

St Thomas, Pattie's new home!

All that reminds me of how change can affect some of us.  Before my move, some of my friends asked if I was scared of moving?  It would be so different, wasn't that uncomfortable?  Well of course the answer was yes.  Yes it was kind of scary moving; yes it was kind of uncomfortable.  However, if we stay where we are because we are afraid, and we don't move because we're not going to be comfortable, then what do we have?

Here in St Thomas, we have a beautiful sunny, warm day with a cooling breeze that we can't enjoy!  I never want to be one of those people that sit inside looking longingly outside but too scared to take the first step.  Taking that step even when you're scared can bring you some of the greatest joys!  As my husband Greg would say "All greatness is achieved while performing outside your comfort zone."

Pattie Arnold is what you might call a “Bridger”. While she hasn’t learned all the ins & outs of PHP, ASP, or XML, she does know what can and can not be done. She knows what a marketer is looking for and how to tell the programmer what needs to be done to give him what he wants. She tells the marketer the cool additions the programmer can give him and how that will enhance his business. She works with the graphic artist and the programmer, and the marketer, and the end user and speaks to each group so that the end result is a very finished and polished product THAT SELLS!  In addition Pattie records, edits and produces end CD products from conference callsLife can be very long and tedious and cost far too much when you don't have a Bridger around...Bridge your way to success, contact Pattie at pattie@../ or visit her at

Why the MLM Cruise is the
most powerful tool in the MLM industry!



Sold Out!

The Seminar at Sea is one of the very best tools in the MLM industry because; Over the years this cruise has become the root of most of my annual income.  Virtually every contact I have outside my own company has either come from this cruise or been introduced to me by someone I met on this cruise.

I won't tell you how much money I will make in 2006 as the result of networking with these super contacts, but I will tell you it will be in the six figures.   They say that your income will generally be somewhere near that of the people you hang out with.  I can tell you from experience that this is true.  Probably because if you hang out with people like Big Al, Robert Butwin, Ken Seto, and Art Jonak  long enough, it will so raise your expectations, you won't be able to help but raise your income level too! 

Between networking with the best of the best and attending the onboard seminars, you just can't beat it.  The life long friends and contacts you will make on this cruise can help make you a fortune.  Why are the best of the best attracted to this cruise year after year?  Because they know!  November 12th through the 19th - "Big Al" MLM Training Cruise -This year’s 7 day cruise leaves from San Juan, Puerto Rico to St. Thomas, to Dominica, to Barbatos, to Aruba and back to San Juan!  Book Early because this cruise sells out EVERY YEAR!
