“Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better and your better is best.”St. Jerome
I hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday!
Here are the five points I think you will like today…
FIRST, I have a surprise for you next week! I wanted to do something special as a thank you for being a subscriber to my newsletter, so next week we will be launching the SOCRATES (Pot of) GOLD Sweepstakes! Over a 15-day period, we will be giving away 3 Grand Prizes and 15 daily prizes (Grand Prizes will be worth approx. $800 each and the daily prizes will be valued at $100 to $500). It will be exciting!
SECOND, I’m sure you’ve heard of Tom’s Shoes and similar companies that give away free products to people in third world countries. But, do these actions actually help or hurt the people they’re trying to help? Here’s a very interesting perspective, and some insight into how to TRULY help the people of the world.
THIRD, everyone needs a good laugh, right? This is absolute comic genius.
FOURTH, I’ve talked a lot recently about how Google, Facebook and Twitter have almost total control over what you see online. They manipulate us in an invisible way. I think newsletters, like SOCRATES GOLD, will become much more important in the near future. Here’s something to think about.
FIFTH, are you aware of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup and it’s affects on your health? “Water testing shows that at least 70% of American household’s drinking water is positive for above detectable levels of glyphosate… Glyphosate shows up in mother’s milk at significant levels. Urine testing also shows 10x higher levels of glyphosate in U.S. citizens compared to Europeans, where it is used less.” Learn more here.
SIXTH, I want to add a quick sixth point. Yesterday was Suicide Awareness Day. I’ve noticed that many of today’s youth are depressed. We can ponder all the reasons in the world, but in the end it comes down to just being there for them and providing humble guidance and reassurance. I have reached out to a couple of my son’s friends who are now 19-20, and I’ve offered to be a trusted friend they can reach out to. The other day one of them took me up on my offer and came over and we talked for almost three hours. He was struggling with direction in life. I gave him whatever help I could, and he left feeling better.
I’m grateful that you choose to read my newsletters! Thank you!
P.S. If you are involved in a church or humanitarian organization, we are offering discounted rates on the SOCRATES FIRE for bulk orders for such organizations. Please reach out to me for more info!
Minding My Business…As I mentioned, we are launching the SOCRATES (Pot of) GOLD Sweepstakes next week. If you’ve been considering advertising with us, now would be a good time to do so, because you will be part of our sweepstakes and will gain a lot more attention. Apply here.
SILENT POCKET (use coupon code “socratesgold” to receive a discount).
I talk a lot about digital security, but you also have to protect yourself physically. Today, thieves don’t have to physically steal your credit card. All they have to do is walk by you at a shopping mall with a scanner, and BAM, they stole your info. UNLESS your wallet is shielded. This is also true of your passport and even your car FOB. Silent Pocket produces wallets, handbags, briefcases and bags that protect you from having your credit cards, passports, ID cards and electronics from being scanned from a distance. I recommend all of their products. Go to Silent Pocket’s site here to learn more.
