| Pasture with Flowers | Barn in Background |
Bundle of flowers | Bull with cows standing behind

   During my 18 years working as a Livestock
nutrition representative, I saw a lot of rural scenes
 like you will see below and I heard many fun

   I also learned a lot about life and how it is so
similar to our lives. For example:

   There was a young man from town on his way to
pick up his date at her parents Farm House.  He
noticed some beautiful wild flowers on the way
and a thought came to him that his date might be
impressed if he picked some and gave her a bouquet.
                    Pasture with flowers Barn in distance

   He was pretty excited and intent on choosing
the different flowers. He was so intent, that he
did not notice the animals moving in behind him.
 He did not have many yet to make a beautiful
Bouquet. He kept on picking the flowers as the
herd was quietly closing in.

   He heard something like a sniffer, turned around
 and here was a Bull and a heard of cows behind him.

He look the other way and saw the rancher
leaning on the fence. He shouted to the rancher
"is that Bull safe." The rancher said," O OOHH
yaw!  I would say that Bull is very safe, but I
don't know how safe you are."

   Are you in a new place in life or are you
running into new things, some of which are new
 and strange to you? Do you feel like it is over
whelming sometimes?

   I remember when I started out on the internet
in 1999, I was very green as many were even
though I had my first computer in 1983. We
used it for financial book keeping and writing
in place of the old typewriter. I also had abut
twenty five years experience in sales work.

   I finely joined a group by chance.The
developer and leader of that group was very
experienced.  He was a very good teacher
nd coach. He is still very active online today
and I appreciate him.

We have a big announcement coming soon.
I can't tell you about it yet because you can
not see it, but I can tell you this
  • You need it.
  • You want it.                  
  • We have it.

Sales on Top ?

 | humor | Double Deck Buss | Driving | Intersection | Traffic Signal Lights | Red Light|


   Two bowling teams, one made up of accountants and one made up of salespeople, chartered a double-deck bus for a weekend of  a bowling tournament in Atlantic City.

                               Double Deck Buss

   The accountants rode in the bottom of the bus. The salespeople rode on the top level. The team made up of accountants down below was having a great time when one of them realized that there was no noise coming from up above.

   One of the accountants went up to investigate. When he got to the top, he found all the salespeople frozen in fear, staring straight ahead at the road, and clutching the seats in front of them with white knuckles.

                            Cartoon of Face of Fear
   He asked, "What's going on up here? We're having a great time down below."

   One of the salespeople looked up and answered,
"Yeah, but you've got a driver!"

   Do you know that most people have a hard time believing in something that they cannot see, hear, feel, taste or smell. Right!

   Ummmm, how about driving in the center lane of a four lane Blvd. and coming into an intersection at about 35-40 miles per hour. Most of the time you can not see the lights for the cross traffic.OH!

                 Image of traffic lights at intersection

   If you continue, is that believing in something you can not see.or are you trusting that the Signal Lights are working correctly?

   Driving through, are you believing that everyone is going to obey the red light which is supposed to be in their Signal Light? Can you see what they are thinking?

Are you trusting that they will all stop. No mistakes running into you?

We have a big announcement coming soon. I can't tell you about it yet because you can not see it, but I can tell you this
  • You need it.
  • You want it.                  
  • We have it.

Seeing is Believing?

Seeing is Believing?
| Flying | Excited | Training | Stinson | Cessna | Bonanza | Types of Airplanes |

   I have always been excited about Airplanes since I was real young. My uncle had a Stinson 105 based at a grass runway airport about 1 mile south of my parents Fruit Ranch in California.

  Stinson 108 Airplane 3 passanger

   My Uncle Art took the time to show me most all of the airplane and took me for a ride many times during my pr-teens and early teens.

   I was so interested in airplanes that I would even take a date with me to an airport and stop and watch the activity.

   Fast forward from High School Graduation 1955 to 7-7-1973
(my birthday) Beth said, "well maybe you should learn to fly and see if it really is something you want to do."

Cessna 150 2 passanger Airplane trainer plane

   That is all it took,  I had my Airman Certificate in a couple of months. This Cessna 150 is almost like the one I received my It would cruse at about100 air miles per hour.

   I had joined a flying club in Blair where we lived in Blair Nebraska.
The flying club owned a 150 much like the one above and also a Cessna 182. This was a four passenger Airplane. I would cruse about 145 (?) air miles per hour. 

Cessna 182 4 passanger Airplane

   Then later as I became a Sales Manager over five states working with our Disturbers of Farm equipment an airplane was a very handy tool for this amount of traveling. So a friend of mine and I bought this Bonanza

Me flying our Bonaza 4 passenger retracting

   Many times I have had somebody riding with me in our airplane. If this is their first ride in an airplane they can be pretty Nervous.

   I remember one who watched me read and check through the take off check list and said to me,"If you have to read the instructions before take off, please take me back to the hanger." This was not a joke, he really was terrified.

   If I had a rider with me for their first ride, I would usually ask the rider to put their hand on the control wheel and instruct them to turn it a little. Now when they feel the pressure, they begin to release that the
air we live in and breath is something real even thought we can not see it.

   Is this developing faith in something that you can not see, smell, taste, hear or feel? Sometimes I have to remind myself that there is.

We care at Petersen Ministries

Which Shingle?

      |   Shingles | Shingle Photos | Humor |

  I started writing this for humor, but I have had a very mild case of the shingles and I would like to show you that the shingles can be a very serious condition. Bottom photo is graphic, but I feel that younger people need to know about this and to take precaution. The older we get, the more likely a person will get it.

What is the shingles? It is the dormant virus which caused the Chicken Pox which comes out through the nerves at a later date.

  One of the most beneficial things we can receive from IBO is learning how to write. One of the things I discovered, is that we get into bad habits and not giving a full description (words) to give a complete (picture) to the other person. (Poor Guy).

   A man walked into a doctor's office, and the receptionist asked him what he had. "Shingles," he said. So she took down his name, address and medical insurance number and told him to have a seat. 

                  Image of shingles rash

   After a wait of about fifteen minutes, he started walking down the hall and a nurse's aide came almost running after him and asked him what he had. "Shingles," he said!.

   She took him into an examination room proceeded to gather more information for the records. Then she took down his height, weight and complete medical history and told him to wait in the examining room.

   A half-hour later a nurse came in and asked him what he had. "Shingles," he said. So she gave him a blood test, a blood pressure test and an electrocardiogram. Then she told him to take off all his clothes and wait for the doctor.

   An hour later the doctor came in and said, "what is it that you have?" "Shingles," he said.

   The doctor said, "Where?"

   He said, "Outside in the truck. Where do you want them?"

| preaching | forgiving | humor | living long | old age | enemy |


Some of you know that I am a Pastor. Not as one which you know who Pastors a Church, but I am an Evangelist. In this position I work for churches who want me to come in for one or several special
messages or some kind of help.

   One day I sat in on a Bible Study Class. The class consisted of very young to very old people.

                Very young boy in suit and tie preaching on stage

As this Pastor was finishing up on a teaching about forgiving one's enemies, he wanted to drill the meaning of the lesson home so He asked for a show of hands of those who were willing to forgive their enemies. About half of the class raised their hands.

   He continued on reteaching some of the material and then He asked again, "Are you are willing to forgive your enemies." This time, 80 percent of his congregation raised their hands. Not giving up, the minister continued for fifteen more minutes.

              on stage with mike.

When he again asked for a show of hands, all members--except--one raised their hands.

   "Mr. Jones," asked the Pastor, "are you not willing to forgive your enemies?"

   "I don't have any."

   Pastor said, "Mr. Jones that is very unusual. I know you are eight-nine years old. Would you please come down to the front and explain to all of us how you have lived so long without making a single enemy in the world?"

                 Very young boy with a walker like an
              old man

   Mr. Jones shuffled up to the front, holding each pew to support his balance and slowly said "It's easy. I've outlived every one of them."

If you enjoy Humor, we have many in our web site!
I really enjoy the humor page myself. I had others help me build
this page for your enjoyment.

Number 1, In 5 days - May I show you How?

Some of you have noticed that my last PR was three weeks ago.
Some have asked, where have you been. Well now you will know,
 I was in training and development.

Now, here it is.

I had a hard time believing that we could achieve the top position
on the first page of Google Search in 30 days or less.
Why was this so hard to believe? I believe that some of my
background will help explain this.

Back in 1983, one of our sons had just graduated from
University of Nebraska. His degree was in Livestock
Nutrition  and Computer Science.He came to join us in
a business we were operating. We acquired an IBM
computer to keep financial records for the business.

               Image of IBM computer of the 90"s     
It was a great improvement in writing letters. With the old
typewriters, we had white out to cover the mistakes, but it hardly
ever worked well enough to cover up the mistakes so the
computer quickly replaced the typewriter.

              over mistakes while using trypwriters
Then came the internet and I was not impressed. I held out for
awhile, but then I began to see a future in the internet. The first
endeavor was signing up in Team 2,000. This was developed
by young  man whom I now consider a good friend. This was
a very productive and profitable venture..
I learned a lot from him and went on to develop my own web site
to correspond with the team. This friend helped me a lot in the
beginning to learn the SEO system, how to recruit, how to buy
leads and call the prospects. I also found out that to be successful,
we had to develop in all aspects of the business. During this time,
I had a web site which rose to #1 in Google search. This however
took about 11/2 years.

So I went on and got my Dell Dimension 8400 Series with the
new XP Professional which is now going to be let out to pasture
or the junk heap. I don't like the flat keyboard on my lap top so
 I am still composing on desk top.

              Image of Dell computers

I am amazed at how so many web sites do not have any SEO
work done in them now.  I had a visit with this friend of mine
and he suggested that I contact this individual who seems very
experienced in this procedure.This young man said I could
develop mine or other web sites into the #1 on
Google Local Search in 30 days or less.

What, I thought; 30 days or less now, compared to my
1!/2 years. No way.

So now you can see  how surprised I was to have one make
it in Five Days. I was so surprised that I took this snap shot
and a video of this.

Image of Number 1 in Google Search in 5 days.
Notice, You can find this on your computer just using the
search as above.
This is a snap shoot of my computer screen. I am sorry now
that I did not take the picture of the whole page. This is the
first page and this is the #1 position.Notice that this is in
competition against  27 million 700 thousand other Web sites.

We have a wonderful place to develop our writing skills here
at IBO. However, if they don't see your web site, they will
never get to read your writing. First page of Google search
is where they will find you.

Would you like to be able to do this for yourself or contract
to do it for others, I can help you. We also have many other
tools in our program to enhance your success.

Are you tired of

  • trying this and that and loosing money and a lot of time?
  • listening toa tremendous sales pitch and then nothing?
  • feeling like everything is a lost cause?
  • loosing your self confidence?
Look, I already have contracts with some individuals
and companies to do their SEO. This is real business
and 10 to 1,000 times more profitable than paying
someone to let you work for them. How many times
have you found a job and you paid them so you could
work for them? Don't get me wrong, It is right to pay
rent for equipment or tools. It is also right to pay for
training, (but pay someone so you can work for them?)

How many times have you had the idea and tools to do
what only a few other people can do? There are business,
small and large who are hunting for someone like you with
this ability and tools.

Would you like to
  1. become known as the one who can really help people.
  2. be able to support your family without working night and day.
  3. pay cash for what you want, car, house, family vacations etc.
  4. people coming to you for your service.
If you do not have the skills yet to handle something like this 
we have other tools which we can teach you how to work with
to make money while you are developing the skills to handle more
sophisticated tools.

This is really too valuable and important to put it on a web site,
email, capture page, Splash page.

  • Let's get together on the phone.
  • Call me or send me an email and a time for me to call you.
