I want to thank you for reading my blog. I am going to fly to Chicago on Tuesday. I will sit (yes sit) in one of the most advanced MRI's in the world. It is the "sit down and smile MRI". The inventor of MRI's diagnosed me at the FONAR plant where the special MRI's were invented and are being built. Check out how cool they are at http://www.fonar.com/ . If you go to their site, scroll down and you will see the clarity of such a scan. Please pray that my surgery is still successful. I have to admit again, I have neglected my rehabilitation.

I really had a rough week with pain and depression, but the Lord blew the clouds of heaviness away when I received a phone call from Maureen Lee. We met on Facebook and I am so blessed and honored to have met my sister in the Lord at such a perfect time of the Lord's plan. She is a gifted writer that is in the process of writing another inspired novel. I have asked that she write on this blog. Why should I keep all of her God breathed words just for myself. I love her as if I had known her all of my life. I know that she will always be in my life for eternity.

As some of you know, my website is NOT a representation of me. I am on a journey, a journey where creating wealth while assisting others to create wealth so they don't have to depend on Social Security or the government. Being disabled is a challenge and having a work at home opportunity without having to leave the house is a Gigantic Miracle. No more getting worn out just to get ready and get out of the house. Now we can work in our PJ's , while drinking coffee and turning on the computer with microphone. I am getting worn out right now. I need to pack and get ready to go to Chicago. Most of my family lives there, so I am excited.

Keep yourself educated and keep up with your health challenge by researching the internet. I watched a program today PBS and became very angry. A physician was going to fuse a 16 year olds back because of her scoliosis. People who have had tethered cord surgery at http://www.thechiariinstitute.com/ in Long Island, NY, know that many people are crippled because of physicians that JUST DON'T listen to their patients . There should be NO excuse for performing incorrect surgeries. Be your own advocate, have an advocate and be an advocate for people who have chiari malformation, hydrocephalus, syringomyelia, tethered cord and ehlers-danlos syndrome.

Hugs to All!

Dear Friends and Family,
I know what it is like to constantly battle depression and physical disabilities.  I often wonder if I am the only person in the world that has challenges.  I heard the news today that depression hits 1 in 4 people and it is the number one cause of disability in this country, creating billions of dollars in lost wages and billions of dollars in medical costs.  

Disabled people are particurlarly succeptable to depression because we tend to isolate.  Well, thanks to the internet, the disabled population can join the outside world in creating an income that can make our dreams a reality.  Network marketing has added to my self-worth and self-esteem.  I have also made some very special friends and business partners all around the country and even in other countries!  All from my home.

If you are interested in working from home, contact me.  You will not be alone, I will partner with you right through the internet and telephone.  

Warning:  There are many scams on the internet, especially now in these economic times.  
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is not true.  Check with the Better Business Bureau and other online sources.  

If you have any questions at all, please fill out my form.  I will call or email you.   My purpose in life is to help others to become successful!

Have A Great Day!
Linda

Chiari, Syringomyelia, Ehlers-Danlos and Tethered Cord, Oh my.......

I have been trying to compose my About Me page on my website. It has been difficult to say the least. I have decided to tell MY story on the Welcome page. I am not going to create a fictional Linda Covert who has it all together. I have every condition that is in the title. My tethered cord surgery was done at http://www.thechiariinstitute.com lat May. It put a stop to a lot of aches and pains. I will tell the TRUTH about how successful I am in Network Marketing and how I can assist you with your goals and turning them into a reality. If you are disabled, you are a strong person just to be on the net and reading this blog. I am sure if you have or know someone who has any of these conditions they usually are invisible to observers. Many sufferers try to lead a "normal" life, only to get depressed because they become isolated and weary of being diagnosed by most physicians with "it's all in your head" diagnosis. Visit http://www.chiariconnectioninternational.com/ Facts and Stories, Also A Great support group. Or contact me in www.lindacovert.com

Enter your information and we will talk. It gets pretty lonely behind the computer all day long.
Every single person has a purpose and my purpose is to let you know that you won't be alone on this journey.
Until tomorrow.
Blessings, Linda Covert

I have found my niche and it is in helping the disabled with finding doctors, comforting and yes, earning money from home. I have been with one of the companies for almost 7 years now. I worked diligently from home and created a nice check. After 1 year, I became ill and to this day, I am getting a check from the same company that pays for my house payment and other bills.

The biggest blessing is, the money I earn still comes in if I need to travel to New York for surgery or travel to my daughters house in Mexico.

I encourage you to go to go back to my website and press on My Team tab. Enter your information and I can give you a call and we will talk. No pressure. It is theraputic to get to know people that we would not have met, had it not been for the internet.

Happy Saturday!
I got so excited to find pics of my grandchildren that I had to post them. Thank You for sharing them with me. I traveled to my daughter's house today. It is near Jackson Hole Wyoming. She is going to start eating www.covertchocolate.com because she wants to lose some weight, get healthy and earn another stream of income.

I have been in network marketing for 6 years. I graduated from Illinois State University in 1991. I was 35 years old and couldn't wait to earn "a lot" of many in the corporate world. That world is NOT very friendly, especially when you have an invisible disability. I am 50 percent blind and have a difficult time reading close-up work. I was promised a JOB with a huge corporation and when they found out that I couldn't read actuarial charts at a fast speed, the company's HR director said "this company will NOT listen to the government and spend millions of dollars in making this place handicapped accessible!". I was informed that I did not pass the speed test. Discrimination occurs often especially when a person is not visibly disabled. I finally was hired as an Executive Outside Sales Rep, where I became the 5th highest earner in national cellular company. I have the numerous awards to prove it. I earned as much as a MD. After 3 years, my disability landed me in the hospital and the company fired me! My manager had wanted my job. Firing someone because of their disability is illegal. I sued this company and after a 6 year battle in the courts, I decided to settle. The settlement paid off all of my bills (hospital, doctors and creditors)and the rest of my money paid the LAWYERS! I had given all of my POWER to the cellular company. I was earning 6 figures, had great insurance, profit sharing and more. I lost it all in 1 day. No one was going to ruin my life another time. My children suffered because we lost everything!
I was "fired" just one week before the company would have had to pay me $5,000 per month until retirement. My insurance was gone.


I never did lose the dream of being independent and free of this world system. I was not going to become another statistic of discrimination. So, I started working in network marketing. The Lord guided me to the RIGHT person and the Right place. The company I joined met the criteria for a good, stable company. The cost to open my business was less than $50.00. After 6 months, I had recruited 147 people into my business and won "Dream Team" for my company. 6 years later, even though I haven't worked the business actively for 5 years, I still receive my monthly residual checks that pay my house payment car payment and other incidentals.

I can take vacation and still get paid. No, I am not a millionaire yet, but I can be and I will assist my team with their goals. No one can fire me now because of disability. Chiari, Tethered Cord, Syringomyelia and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome ARE invisible but I was slowly deteriorating. (Update: I had surgery at www.chiariinstitute.com )

Network marketing is everything I thought it would be. Your success depends on your commitment and your company. There are so many money scams and ponzi scams on the internet. Do your due dilliagence and research the company.

Well, I will continue this tomorrow. Please, if you want information, don't hesitate to contact me.

Blessings, Linda Covert

Good Day,
Don't forget to take care of your health.  I just realized today that I haven't followed my surgeon's directions.  I was supposed to have 4 MRI's last November.  AI had Tethered cord surgery.  If you want to watch something awesome go to http://www.chiariinstitute.com and click on the gentleman at the bottom left of that page.  Prior to the surgery, I was losing control of my legs, having neuropathy (burning of skin),headaches, tightness in chest, headaches and unsteadiness.  I am so blessed to have had the best surgeons and the pioneers of this surgery.  So many people have tethered cord.  The symptoms are usually misdiagnosed by physicians.
I have met so many tethered cord patients and chiari patients that have been diagnosed with mental illness (all in your head), multiple sclerosis, arthritis, aging and more.  
  The common symptoms are depression, headaches, bladder and rectal control issues, neuropathy, looseness of joints, lower back pain and loss of coordination.  OK, now that I have had my surgery, I need to go to physical therapy, eat healthy and have my MRI's.  Sometimes I spend too much time on the computer and neglect my physical needs.  In order to enjoy this business I am building, I have to have my health so I can enjoy success.  The same holds true for everyone! 
God Bless, Linda Covert

Hi Everyone,
Winter has almost gone (it is still snowing)!  I can't wait until the trees bud and the tulips push throuh the dirty snow.  Spring is always a hopeful time for me.  It is a great time to get motivated for good change.  
Please excuse my website and blog.  This is my first attempt at writing on a blog. 
If you haven't signed up for Facebook,  you are missing a GREAT way of getting your voice out on the net.  Add me as your friend and let me know that you visited my blog.  I will add you to my friends and then, we can check out each others pictures and other interesting information.  

You can find my direct links at the bottoms of www.LindaCovert.com.   Enjoy the pictures that I will be posting today (if I figure that out).

At Your Service
Linda Covert

I Am So Excited About My New Website

I am SO excited about my new website and blog!  I have been searhing for ways to make a presence online and duplicable websites weren't the answer! Dave Bradbury, owner of www.brandyourselfmarketing.com is a GREAT friend and mentor.   I am going to use this Blog to promote my friends and friends to be (family too).  Friends that are challenged with Chiari and related disorders.   I have had these hindrances but this is the time of my life to branch out and help others create whatever they desire and dreams may be!    The disabled have a strength that "normal" people don't have.  Every time we make it over the top of the mountain,  we become empowered with "I can do it"!  Contact me and together we will take our dreams and make them a REALITY!  
God Bless You,
Linda
