You Actually Can Do THIS In Three Minutes A Day!

When we read the brief business profile that Jan Oliver submitted for our new section on female entrepreneurs, we thought here was one smart lady.

My 3-minute program was created for the woman who can’t stick to a diet or exercise plan” Jan wrote. “As a registered nurse with over 30 years of experience, I know there is only one way to lose weight: Eat Less and Exercise More. I have seen it time after time, in patient after patient, and in multiple settings (not always in sickness). It is the goal of my company to dispel weight loss myths with this one simple truth. I want to show you, three minutes at a time, how to incorporate exercise into your day naturally, without all the hype and dramatic wardrobe changes. A commitment of three minutes a day is a great place to start and totally do-able. Write to me today, tell me about your greatest challenge, struggle, mind game. What makes you go into a food frenzy? I would love to hear your story and will do my best to serve you with professional and accurate information and a passion to see you succeed.”

Meet Jan.

FOF: What is your background and what led you to this weight-loss program?

JO: I’m 60, divorced and have three kids. My oldest is 31 and the youngest is 25. I’ve been a nurse for 39 years. I was a labor and delivery nurse for 13 years in Spokane, WA, then we moved to California for a short time, and then back to Washington. I’ve worked in all fields of nursing, including ER, rural nursing, psych, rehab, geriatrics, and now I’m in hospice, so I’ve kind of come full circle, from birth to death. My job is admitting people to the hospice service, which is called Hospice of Spokane North. It’s been around for 45 years.

You’d Rather Buy A New Outfit, But Buying One of These Could Save Your Life!

I’ll never forget making a beeline for the supermarket during the early afternoon of September 11, 2001, to stock up on essentials like water and food.

The bridges and tunnels leading in and out of Manhattan, where I live and work, were closed. The subways and trains weren’t operating. Our phone service was spotty. The interminable lines at the supermarket checkouts were filled with thousands like me, who were completely unprepared for an emergency of such magnitude.

I didn’t learn my lesson. When a blackout crippled parts of the Northeast in brutal summer of 2003, we didn’t even have a proper flashlight or battery-operated radio. Even worse, my 80-year-old mother couldn’t go without sustenance in the wicked heat. My refrigerator was almost bare. Thank goodness, I made it to the store, seconds before it was closing.

Lisa Katzki, 53, has run into lots of people like I, during her career as a public health nurse. Determined to forearm us with the supplies we need to help get us through different types of emergencies, she launched There we can find kits to call on for tornadoes, earthquakes, power outages, floods, and more.

The PRE part of a PREPAREDNESS PLAN is the most important. DO IT NOW, before the disaster,” Lisa advises.

Perhaps the tagline for should be: “Forewarned is forearmed.”

Exercise Your Options!

Do this {really} good deed for the entrepreneurial women in your life, and you could win a
{really rad} $2,095 electric bike, for yourself
or for someone you love.

First, the bike:

The Pedego 26” Step-Thru Cruiser, in red with red rims, combines comfort, ease, and style for a dashing alternative to a car or traditional bicycle. Its long-life lithium battery lasts for rides up to 20 miles, with no pedaling, but the Cruiser does also operate as a regular bike. You’ll simply twist the throttle while you’re pedaling, to start or stop the quiet motor. All your friends will want one for themselves when they see you cruising smoothly down the road.

And think of the exercise you can get!
