Welcome To Our Wild Ride Of Gelato And Blogging!
Random, yes, I know. Who writes about both gelato and general blogging, well….we do 🙂 Websites should be free to express their crazy ideas yet still deliver great content which is exactly what we plan to do. Sit back and enjoy the ride!
I know we touched on law of attraction earlier and how it can affect you life in so many positive ways. In talking about the law, I have to talk about where I got my start from which was a program from Bob Proctor called “Six Minutes To Success”. Here is a short video about it by Seth from LOA Coaching:
To give a little backstory, I had just gone though a bankruptcy and had to move back home to the studio above my parents garage. Single with no money and still in debut, this wasn’t the greatest time in my life. I was making pretty good money in my then career as a general contractor, but was extremely unhappy and unfulfilled with it. Going to work in the morning was like pulling teeth. Even thinking back now I get the chills. I knew there was more to life and needed to find my passion but wasn’t sure how I was going to do it. One day I ran across a youtube video of Bob’s that just grabbed me. I ended up watching the video 16-20 times and getting something from it every time. The video talked about this very course. I eventually decided it was time to make a change and I signed up for Six minutes to success. It was the least expensive of the programs he was offering. It seemed really simple at first and I didn’t see how it was going to make a difference, but after a month I started feeling better about myself and where I was heading in life. I had a feeling that my path laid somewhere with Bob. After a few more months I decided to take a bigger leap and sign up for an advanced coaching course from Bob. After that, my life has never been the same and I owe everything to that simple six minutes to success program. I have since changed careers, doubled my income and wake up more happy than ever. I will be soon doubling my income again thanks to the principles I have learned through Bob’s training.
I was nothing special at all, but I had a dream and a desire. I know that anyone can do what I did as well. Just wanted to share this.
Seth From Law Of Attraction Coaching Is A Closet Gelato Lover…
Seth is a good friend and co-owner of lawofattractioncoaching.net. I am personally guilty of getting him hooked on Gelato. He has always been a big person on health and fitness but we all enjoy a little treat every now and then. So how I hooked him was the fact that gelato tends to be made from only pure sources and no additives. No chemical preservatives and that really appealed to Seth.
It is really scary some of the stuff they add to all types of food these days and the long term affects can not be good. As time goes on, we will discover just how bad, but until then, lets start to get conscious about it now!
Seth runs a successful law of attraction coaching site that helps people apply and use the law of attraction to achieve a better quality of life and go after some of those big goals you may have had but have given up on. According to Seth it is never too late to achieve your dreams in life and achieve a higher level of happiness, health, and wealth. We all deserve a little more and to wake up happy and excited about life is worth every penny and minute spent learning more.
Seth has done some coaching for us here which is why I know what they teach works and I can highly recommend. As for us, it has helped us go after some of the far fetched dreams we had and do so with confidence and a plan to achieve them. I thought it all sounded a little hokey at first, but then started to realize that these principles they teach are universal and similar to principles that the worlds most successful people use on a day to day basis. We have seen results to eliminate any questions in my mind as to whether it works or not. They have some great law of attraction videos over on Youtube that I would recommend that you check out, I’ll include one below. I don’t get any kick back for saying this, just giving my honest opinion.
Now Seth has started to expand to his group about Gelato because of us, so I guess it is a give and take relationship! If only we could sell gelato here on the site….hmmmm….maybe someday. Until then, Seth has become a small gelato connoisseur in his own right. I believe that he mentioned that his current favorite is a flavor called “after eight“(pictured to the right). It is basically gelato’s version of mint chocolate chip ice cream. That is one of my favorites as well. They have some great recipes online that we will have to try and make a video on down the road.
Well, we hope you enjoyed this brief post and opened your mind to a few new possibilities in life. Be sure to post or comment any questions you have below or visit Seth and law of attraction coaching to learn more about how to get more out of life!
Thanks for listening and Gelato on!
Matt From Oregon Web Solutions Loves His Gelato!
Business and Gelato – What A Mix!
In speaking with many business people including our own search engine optimization expert Matt (CEO at Oregon Web Solutions), there are a lot more people then I even knew who have a passion for good old Gelato! I thought we were the only crazies, but I guess not.
When Matt isn’t running his successful company, he is a bit of a foodie. Not in the way a lot of people would expect. He enjoys the northwest way of pure, real food. This means food in it’s rawest of forms and not a lot of processing or additives. “It truly scares what some companies add to their food to give it a longer shelf life of better flavor!” Matt Says. “They don’t care or take into consideration the long term effects those preservatives may have on the human body. It’s all about the bottom dollar.” “This is why, when I get my sweet craving, I go to Gelato! It is in it’s purest of forms and even though it may not be healthy due to the high sugar, it is non processed with a bunch of chemical crap that I don’t want in my body.” “Do you ever eat store bought ice cream and get that weird flavor or feel like it coats the roof of your mouth with a layer of who knows what?!” “I don’t get that with fresh made gelato!….love it!”
Matt is one passionate guy when it comes to his ice cream/ gelato I suppose. We all have our vices, so why not have one be a little gelato right! So when he is not building his search engine optimization Portland company, he is trying new flavors and dispensaries for both ice cream and gelato ever searching for that perfect scoop you might say! Naturally Matt is a fan of our site as it include his 2 favorite things (gelato and business) so I figured I would throw him a bone and get him in on a blog or two.
When asked, Matt says that if he had to pick his favorite Gelato flavor that he has had, he would have to stick to the tried and true and go with either, vanilla, chocolate, or coffee. Boring right! Sometimes perfect can be simple. Not everything in life needs to be over the top or crazy according to Matt. “I first discovered gelato in my home town in a little Italian coffee shop that had what I thought was pricy ice cream. I tried it and it blew my mind how good it was! I was hooked!”
All this aside Matt runs a business that delivers superior SEO service to companies across the globe and of ever size and shape. If you would like to learn more about SEO you can visit his Portland SEO Facebook.
We want to thank Matt for his time and having fun with out little blog today. We look forward to having him again in the future and get more into his experiences a little more.
Now before we go, I have to add in this great video of another person trying Gelato for the first time! Too funny…

Why we love gelato ice cream so much
In the United States we are traditional ice cream eaters. For most, Gelato is a foreign language and few understand what the term actually means. Gelato is simply the Italian word for ice cream, which is made slightly different than the way we traditional make it in the States. The base for Gelato is made with milk, cream, and sugar with the flavoring coming from fruit and occasionally egg yolks. Traditionally, the main difference is that eggs are not used in the recipe. In Italy Gelato is wildly popular and has been slowly making it’s way around the world. Recent studies show that the trend is beginning to catch on here in the US as sales rose from approximately $10 million in the early 2000’s to nearly $214 million in total sales at the end of 2014. This huge interest in this delicious Italian version of ice cream has single handily kept the frozen desert industry alive according to many industry experts. For years, I have loved making ice cream at home with traditional ingredients and recently decided to learn how to make the Italian version of my favorite dish. As a long-time ice cream lover, there’s something about the cold, smooth, and fruity texture of Gelato that really perks up my taste buds. As I kid I can still recall make ice cream from scratch at my grandmas house in the South. Down there, this was a tradition of theses, and back in the day the only way you could eat ice cream at home. Nowadays times have changed, and anyone can simply go to the grocery store and choose between hundreds, and in some cases thousands of different flavors of this delicious treats.
As Gelato gains popularity in the United States, I decided to dig deep and learn the secrets of the ancient tradition. From my research, it appears the main difference between Gelato and traditional ice cream has to do with the consistency. Ice cream has a thinker consistency due to the heavier cream content and the use of egg yolks. It’s Italian counterpart has a more smooth consistency that feels more gourmet and homemade. In fact, over the years it has gained a reputation as being hand made in small batches which is popular in the more ritzy and trendy areas of the country. Plus, anytime something is new or different then your standard fare, there will always be a level of excitement that surrounds it.
In Itally, the history of Gelato ice cream has a large amount of lore surrounding it. The legends say that before the advent of freezers the early ice cream makers would have to hike up into the mountains to gather snow and ice to create their delicious deserts. Nowadays, modern refrigeration allows us to create and transport these delicious recipes anywhere in the world. As time has passed, the traditional recipes have evolved. Some choose to add egg yolks and other non-traditional ingredients, while the purest refuse to deviate from the original recipe. If your looking to excite your taste buds with a unique twist on traditional ice cream then give Gelato a try.
