Greetings

Happy New Year from all of us at YEI. We wish you an excellent year ahead, full of good health, happiness and joy. This is our first e-Newsletter of the year – we trust that it will interest, inspire, and motivate you.

2011 was a wonderful start for www.youve-earned-it.co.za. As you may recall, we launched on 23 September 2011, and are delighted to see that new subscribers are signing up on a daily basis. As we move rapidly into 2012, and as our subscriber base has grown beyond our expectation, we thought it might be fun for our subscribers (especially our new subscribers) to see our Top Ten articles, as clicked on by you in 2011.

2012 will be an exciting year for YEI and our subscribers. We have listened to our YEI subscribers, and it is with great pleasure that we are introducing a section in the monthly YEI e-Newsletter, where we will welcome new advertisers on board (see below). We are also planning further new development and products during the year – watch this space.

YEI will be running a series of articles on boomers who have embarked on encore careers, starting with this edition. If you have taken the time to reflect and retool for your second career in your later years, please tell us about it, and we will consider featuring your story on YEI.

We are encouraging our advertisers to place any “news” on their products/businesses on the YEI Facebook page. Please go to the YEI Facebook page to read snippets on Traveltime’s upcoming art course and their trip to the Grahamstown National Arts Festival. Primi Piatti are asking what you like to see on their new menu launching in March 2012 – now’s the time to have your say!

It has come to our attention that some subscribers are experiencing a problem when viewing their e-Newsletters. This may be because some service providers do not support the embedded images as they are displayed on the YEI
e-Newsletter and might explain why some subscribers are not in a position to view the e-Newsletter in its entirety. If this applies to you, we would like to suggest that you view the e-Newsletter in its correct format on the website. Go to the section titled e-Newsletters, and then click on the relevant month.

We encourage you to give us feedback on the articles and on the advertisements, and to get discussion going in our “Readers Posts” section. The more we hear from you, the better we can deliver what you want.

Don’t forget to tell your friends and family about us, so that they can register for FREE on YEI by visiting www.youve-earned-it.co.za. And please “like us” on Facebook – you will find the link to Facebook on the YEI website.

Kind regards,
Marilyn and the YEI Team

   

For a generation raised on dinner table discussions, reading and radio, the concepts of SMS, MMS, Flickr and tweeting highlight the modern-day inability truly
to communicate. But there is a good side to technology. It can buy you time.

 
   

Encore career is a term used to describe a second (or third) career that you take
on in your later years, working on your terms. Encore careers combine continued income, greater meaning and social impact.

 
   

And, as we have a good chance of being retired for about 10,000 days, it’s worth spending one day to make the most of the next 10,000! These days when we retire, we are, in general, much healthier, more active and have a longer lifespan ahead
of us than our parent’s generation (well that’s the idea anyway).

 
   

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease caused by the inability of the pancreas to produce insulin or to use the insulin produced in the proper way. After a meal, a portion of the food a person eats is broken down into sugar (glucose).

 
   

2011 was a wonderful start for www.youve-earned-it.co.za. As you may recall, we only launched on the 23 September 2011, and are delighted to see that new subscribers are signing up on a daily basis.

 
   

A new year brings with it new developments and new products. We have listened to our YEI subscribers, and it is with great pleasure that we are introducing this new item in the monthly YEI e-Newsletter, where we will welcome new advertisers on board.
