Santa Arrives on Boracay

Santa Arrives on Boracay

Dear Friends & Fellow Travelers,

Hello again from Boracay! We trust you've been having amazing holidays! This past month has been an exciting one for all of us: both Jon-Jon and Julian performed in their first play, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, with their school. On Christmas Eve, Santa Claus arrived on a yacht flanked by kayak-riding elves. Christmas Day was magical as we attended a beautiful beach-side buffet with friends accompanied by local/traditional entertainment.

We're noticing that as 2010 approaches, there is a certain magic in the air. And so we are capitalizing on that by spending the final days of this year immersed in the middle of the action down here on White Beach. We'd also like to pass on that positive energy to you!

As many of you know, this past Monday we held a free teleseminar on deliberate creation through which Kathryn shared many clues and tips on learning how to manifest the things you want. The call went extremely well with more than 500 people registered. In fact, some of the people who attended have notified us that they've already re-listened to the recording multiple times! During the event we also announced our upcoming and more intensive 4-part telecourse to hone your creative process even further.

Read on to learn more or register directly HERE.

Family LoveOn the 4th we're headed to Manila to greet our son Calvin for his 2 week visit during his winter break from college. We have a lot of fun planned for his time here and the younger boys are ecstatic to see him.

While it's not even here yet, 2010 is already off to a great start!

Wishing you all the best,
            Jon & Kathryn

Self-Made Billionaires

Bill GatesWe ran across this article on self-made billionnaires and while we don't agree with all of it, it sounds a lot like Portable Lifestylers, who tend to think for themselves in the exact same way. We love that it discusses those who started from scratch, excluding any inheritors.

Reading case studies like this can certainly further your own cause for independent wealth and out-of-the-box thinking.

Here's a link to the original article published by Forbes:
"Are You Born To Be A Billionaire?"

Stay tuned -- in our next issue we are going to present to you a reason why you will have no excuses left not to dive into a Portable Lifestyle in 2010. The story will drop your jaw!

Make 2010 Your Year with Our Deliberate Creation Telecourse

DC Telecourse PicEven if you didn't sign up for the Deliberate Creation free teleseminar, you can still do-it-yourself, and we HIGHLY recommend doing it now on the dawn of a new decade to take advantage of the change energy in the air (Have you noticed things already changing? We have!). You can ride on this vortex to watch your dreams happen more easily than ever.

If you took the free teleseminar Kathryn did Monday night, you know to pick 4 things that you really want in 2010 - no holds barred - write them down and hold them as sacred. Definitely make one intention to start diving into a Portable Lifestyle and even include a couple of dream destinations to visit this year!

Light a candle over them on January 31st if possible, then at midnight, make a toast and bless these intentions (you don't have to disclose what they are if you don't want to).

If you want to dive in further to make your intentions happen quickly (especially if they're big or if you have been stuck and not manifesting), look into Kathryn's 4 week telecourse on Deliberate Creation, which includes a private mini-session with her and therefore is very limited in enrollment, in January & February.

In just 24 hours, half of the slots already got filled, so if you want to dive further into making your intentions happen in breakthrough fashion, then look into joining us while we still have spaces available at:

www.kathrynalice.com/deliberatecreation/

It is simply amazing how intentions seem to work on your behalf, once you set them. We do this every year, and are agog at what happens in that year and how many are checked off come the next one.

Southeast Asian Transport Goes Green: The E-Jeepney

An E-JeepneyLast month we shared information on a number of unique modes of public transportation we've experienced throughout Southeast Asia. While the vehicles were developed according to resources available plus the needs of the people in each area, they're also quite ingrained into each culture.

If you've ever been to Manila, you know that traffic and smog is a mess (we can't decide if it's worse than L.A. or not). The diesel-powered jeepney is an aging relic of a different time. In the 60 years since locals first began modifying these abandoned military-grade machines (from WWII -- your relatives may have stories!), the design has essentially remained unchanged. Until now.

So how does a developing country get past its addiction to what was once a perfect merger between supply and demand in order to evolve into the New Millennium? Jeepneys are, in fact, using just as much fuel and emitting just as much pollution into the environment as air-conditioned busses which carry more than 3 times as many passengers. And Manila is in desperate need of reducing its carbon footprint.

So finally . . . introducing the electric jeepney, a big step forward!

In 2008 Green Renewable Independent Power Producers (GRIPP) with Greenpeace backing them introduced the E-Jeepney, a 4-speed fully-electric minibus that can carry from 12-17 passengers. All that is needed is an electrical outlet and you can travel 120 kilometers on one 8-hour charge. Look for a transformation of the streets in the coming years as mass production has begun by the Philippine Utility Vehicle Inc. (PhUV).
