In my recent conversation with lead generation and conversion master, Chris Snow, we spoke about how to maximize paid leads, but today, I want to take a different angle. That is, what if we lived in a world where paid lead generation wasn't an option? In the absence of paid leads, how would we go about getting new business? Would we change anything we're doing now? My guess is, most of us would shift our focus to referrals, and that would require providing better service. The question is, why aren't we operating like that regardless? In this episode, I'm doubling down on the importance of offering stellar service in an industry that's all but forgotten what that looks like, and why doing so has the power to supersize your business.

Building a team, buying a business, and building your brand. None of these is related to your success. None of them are required for your success. Stop looking for external reasons and take ownership of your trajectory. Learn to pro-actively lead generate, or you will never be in control of your potential! Building a team: When you've learned how to be a powerful listing agent, one who knows how to find, prequalify, present, list and sell listings, you can refer your buyer business to a buyer partner. Keep two or three buyers in your own pipeline, but these will be listing clients who are buying with you, repeat clients or quality referrals.

“Every piece of the supply chain literally is being affected by inflation, from availability issues, to transportation, starting all the way down at the plant material and taking it all the way to the consumer.” Ryan Lockman (23:21-23:45) In the ladder part of 2021, you've probably experienced several delays in packages or going shopping for items that weren't at your local retailer. It's clear that we're in a crisis with the supply chain and the issues we're seeing, especially when we shop for groceries. There's a rising cost of goods, inflation, lack of supply to meet demand, and a struggle to get U.S. grown products in front of consumers. Lori joined Ryan Atwood, one of the owners of H&J Farms in Florida, a blueberry grower and packer, and Ryan Lockman, the Vice President of Sales and Procurement for North Bay Produce, a long-standing partner with The Produce Moms and marketer of fresh produce. Lockman manages relationships with large grocery retailers like Kroger, Aldi's and Meyer, and also distributes Atwood's blueberries under the North Bay brand. Since Ryan Atwood is someone who's on the front lines and starting point of the produce supply chain, he's formed a strong opinion as to where the rising cost of goods originated from. Atwood thinks labor costs went up at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic as a result of people deciding to stay home and get out of their 9-5 workforce jobs. In order to attract employees and talent, companies have had to raise their wages (something H & J Farms has done). “Growers haven't received the proper returns for a long time. I wholeheartedly think that our growers have needed higher returns or larger profit margins since I started The Produce Moms.” Lori Taylor (13:15-13:34) Ryan Atwood has experienced a firsthand result of inflation with fertilizer. Every year there's a fertilizer bid which, once the bid is received, it locks out the price for the entire year, however this year, Atwood was told fertilizer prices were only good for a mere 20 days. The fertilizer prices he was quoted in 2021 compared to 2020 completely doubled. Ryan Lockwood also believes we're running into some very tough times because “the cost of growing fruit is increasing, but also on a daily basis the amount of mobile money the average retail consumer has to use on purchasing groceries is decreasing because of the rising cost of goods in retail.” Every item across the produce department is increasing in cost and the availability is decreasing for the consumer. Consumers still want to eat healthy and buy wisely, but farmers have no choice but to charge a higher price than what the produce item was in the field, which inevitably makes certain produce items unattractive to consumers, such as blueberries. “When you look at what the price of gas costs and the price hikes we've seen in proteins… We haven't seen that kind of inflation with fresh produce yet, but even the small hike in price (which is inevitable and will continue) has put commodities within the grocery store and the produce department at risk.” Ryan Lockman (19:18-19:49) We aren't sure just yet how retailers and the supply chain are going to respond to the fact that the cost of producing and growing blueberries is rising and the result that creates when trickling down to the point of sale. There's a longer lead time for all things in the supply chain, from packaging, to cardboard, to the cost and availability of trucking, warehouse staff, and more. Ryan Lockman thinks lead times are higher than they've ever been in history. This also affects our quality of food because when it finally hits the shelf it's a week older than it should be and also creates a delay in marketing plans for promotions and sales. Both Ryan's want consumers to understand this because it's important to know why you have to pay more for a superior product versus putting a subpar item on the shelf for a lesser price. If you want to play your part in helping decrease our supply chain issues, support U.S. grown produce as much as possible. Relying on produce exports is creating a food security issue for our country and our American farmers and growers need your help.

Mattie Jackson Selecman dreamt of being an author, yet she never expected her first book Lemons On Friday would be about the tragic + unexpected loss of her beloved husband of 11 months. Daughter of country megastar Alan Jackson and New York Times bestselling author Denise Jackson, Mattie became a widow at 28 years old and was forced to navigate a future drastically different from the one she had planned. Relying on her faith, she embarked on a deeply personal journey through devastating loss and the difficult dance that followed. This conversation is a reminder that no heartbreak or loss is unredeemable and by confidently clinging to hope, we can truly heal. SHOW NOTES: Value of work + humility: Growing up in the quintessential country music family, Mattie is grateful for how her parents raised her and her siblings. In her book, It's All About Him, Mattie's mom Denise candidly shared her and Alan's marital struggles, giving Mattie the confidence to share her own difficult journey. Intrigued by the history, science and art of wine, Mattie spent six years owning a wine bar restaurant. "You are the sweetest and best thing that ever happened to me." Mattie describes her late-husband Ben as joyful, abundant and filled with momentum for each day. Eleven months into their marriage, Ben suffered a fatal traumatic brain injury while vacationing in Florida. Nearly a year later, Mattie surrendered, chose to trust God and did not need to understand the "why" of her loss. Advice to those with friends, families and others close to someone experiencing a devastating loss: It's less about what you do and more about being present. In the midst of being emotionally, mentally and physically exhausted, open-ended questions are overwhelming. Direct questions like “do you want to get lunch today or can I drop something off?” helped her manage to make even the simplest decisions. During difficult moments, such as baby showers, Mattie would recite Romans 12:15: Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Through researching heaven, Mattie found comfort in knowing where Ben was. Books that helped her were Randy Alcorn's Heaven and John Burke's Imagine Heaven. Approaching the two-year anniversary of Ben's death, Mattie wrote Racing the Dark, sung by her father, to fight the instinct to run away and find the courage to face challenges. "Grief is less about learning not to hurt. It's more about learning how you hurt and how to navigate it."

With the onset of the new year, everyone is pouring fuel into their business intentions for 2022, especially when it comes to marketing. In this episode, Nick talks to Phillip Stutts, the best-selling author of 'The Undefeated Marketing System', and a man who has used his considerable talents and skills in marketing to aid in over 1400 election victories and 3 presidential victories. Phillip joins Nick to talk about the art of marketing, and how you can truly influence minds and decisions in order to not just reach your target audience, but to convince them of your message. KEY TAKEAWAYS We excel when we aim high. There is no sense in playing it safe in order to score mediocrity. If we push ourselves then we try harder, fly higher, and achieve more. Many people who do extraordinary things are fundamentally flawed in other areas. Nothing pushes us harder to succeed than feeling as though we might fail entirely. Relying on one single channel when it comes to sales and marketing is never wise, especially if we do not own the data or the system. Competitors can always use processes to keep us down or affect sales. Look for ways of centralising your output and owning the data. We lack empathy in our society. People across the world seem currently obsessed with telling their own stories. Empathetic marketing begins with looking at data and coming to understand what matters to the world around us instead of ourselves BEST MOMENTS 'What I loved about it is the game - the marketing game behind how politicians get elected' 'A lot of people who do extraordinary things are flawed characters' 'The marketing world is rigged for almost every single business out there' 'My mission in life is to wake up business owners' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global Join the free Scale Up Your Business community: scaleup.vip/community Take the SUYB Predictable Growth Assessment™, to measure your current business performance and show you where to focus next to get to where you want to be: https://scaleup.vip/PredictableGrowthAssessment Phillip Stutts - https://www.winbigmedia.com/phillip-stutts ABOUT THE HOST Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Tim Baker talks through the unique financial needs and considerations of Generation X. Key Points From This Episode An introduction to today's topic of Gen X; the sandwich generation. How Gen Xers are often providing for their parents, plus a young child or a child over 18. How these financial expectations are often overlooked or pushed to the side. We talk about average incomes, the rising cost of education, and what their debt load is. The impact of the ups and downs in the last few years on their financial mindsets. How Gen X wants stability but might not have the financial plan or means to get it. You can take out education loans for your kids, you can't get retirement loans. Hear how Tim Baker follows the one-third plan and a reminder of what that is. Relying on the act of planning, versus having a plan. Some important questions Gen Xers can ask themselves to get financially stable. Making sure you're not on autopilot, particularly in your peak earning years. Tackling the fear and inertia of having left it so late in life to start saving and planning. Having empathy for Gen X needing different priorities from the previous generation. That Gen X really wasn't dealt a great hand economically, but the problems are fixable. Reigniting the vision and finding the motivation to do things differently. Speaking about the lack of confidence in social security for future retirement. Tim shares a great exercise you can do to check your retirement age and benefits! We discuss the shifting dynamics of generations and the transfer of wealth. Some parting words of encouragement from us here at the YFP team!

And let me tell you, there is GOLD in here today, friends. Pure gold. I first mentioned The Store back in Episode 51 when we talked about ways to build meaningful relationships in the community. The Store's social media presence is a great example of showering appreciation on supporters and partners. Last week in Episode 71 we talked about how it's important to always be learning, but also taking ACTION. Today's guest is a perfect example of that combination. Courtney Vrablik is the Executive Director of The Store in Nashville, TN. A few years ago, Brad Paisley and his wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley (yes, that's the country singer and the actress) volunteered with their kids at Unity Shoppe in Santa Barbara, California. That sparked their dream to address food insecurity in their own hometown of Nashville. Courtney became the Executive Director just before the pandemic of 2020 hit, and what a time to step into a new role! She's such an incredible combination of tenacity, confidence, and humility. Key Takeaways This conversation is full of so many inspiring insights. Courtney shares about: Staying on top of her game and the ability to make decisions quickly Relying on her supportive board to advise and guide Importance of having a community of peers to build each other up, share resources, learn from each other's strengths Pooling resources with other organizations in the community Nashville's unique culture that contributes to the generosity Being open to areas where we need to grow, and also learning to trust our gut Courtney gets raw and real about her personal journey and how it's helped her better serve the community now The importance of going back to your mission when making decisions and determining your services Creative ways to share your nonprofit's story while maintaining dignity and privacy for clients Finding fun ways to lift the heaviness and still talk about the needs Being good stewards and building trust with donors Determining what success looks like for each client “There are so many moving parts to our work that my go-to should never be to put the burden of proof and the burden of why we exist on the customer who's experiencing the greatest amount of need.” This is one inspirational interview you won't want to miss! Meet Courtney Vrablik: Courtney Vrablik is the Executive Director of The Store in Nashville, TN. The Store is the result of a dream Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams-Paisley had to address food insecurity in their hometown after their experiences volunteering at Unity Shoppe in Santa Barbara. With a mission that focuses on dignity, The Store provides free groceries to qualifying families and individuals who are seeking self-sufficiency and opportunities to break cycles of poverty.

One hundred years ago today, on 20 December 1921, the newlywed Hemingway's arrived in Paris. After almost two weeks on the S.S. Leopoldina that left New York on December 8th the two finally arrived in the City of Light. Relying on Hadley and her eight years of French, the two found their way through day to day life. Friend and author Sherwood Anderson armed Hem with letters of introduction to other American expats and even made them a reservation at the Hotel Jacob et d'Angleterre on the Rue Jacob in Saint Germain-des-Près. Filled with fellow Americans, the hotel fittingly sits on the same spot that Benjamin Franklin and John Adams worked on the Treaty of Paris in 1783 that would end the American Revolution. When Ernest and Hadley stayed it was just 12 francs a day and in a bit of disrepair. Holes in the staircase carpet that Hem would call “traps for drunk guests”, but the price was right. Today the staircase and the inner garden is still the same, although they have changed the carpet. On those cold days of December the two would walk the streets of St Germain “arm through arm, peering into courts and stopping in front of little shop windows”. Dining almost nightly at the nearby Le Près aux Clercs on the corner of Rue Bonaparte and Rue Jacob, just steps from their hotel. They could get a fantastic meal for just 12 francs and dine like royalty.. Those next few months and years are the most documented of his life. The countless books change the facts or add in a bit of their own point of view. Listen to the newest episode of Paris History Avec a Hemingway on La Vie Creative Podcast to hear about these early days when everything was “poor and happy”.

Freight forwarders say the spot price market isn't ideal.New Zealand freight forwarders will have to rely on the spot price market next year as the sector understands shipping container company Maersk will drop contracts for smaller container movements.

We were warned. Relying on the federal government to magically limit its own power would guarantee that power would always grow. As a result, we live under the largest government in history today. But there's an awakening - more and more people are recognizing that the path to liberty lies not in D.C., but in resistance to it on a state, local and individual level. The post State of the Nullification Movement 2021 first appeared on Tenth Amendment Center.
Do you ever feel like something's in your way, blocking you from getting out of debt and generating wealth? From not having clear goals, to lacking connections, to poor time management, there are lots of ways we block our own path to success. Often, we even do it unconsciously, out of habit or an unwillingness to confront harsh truths. In today's episode, I'm talking about these wealth blockers and how to bust through them, breaking down ten forms of behavior that may be keeping you at a plateau. I'll kick things off with a quick discussion of Cyber Monday and a reminder that there are still tickets available for the workshop in January. Then I'll move on to the main discussion, pointing out that everybody, regardless of their financial situation, can benefit from assessing themselves for blockers holding them back. Throughout the show, I'll go through ten wealth blockers—including skepticism, isolation, and having a short-term mindset—and offer constructive ways to move past them and achieve greater success. I'll wrap things up by encouraging you to invest in yourself and believe that you're worth all the work and effort of breaking through these barriers.

You're worth it. You're worth the work.” - Kristin Ostrander Quotes: “3% of people actually have written down goals.” “Successful people also take full responsibility for their successes and their failures. So don't look outside of yourself. If something isn't working, you need to get super honest with yourself and to be accountable because honestly, no one's going to reach your goals for you.” “Just be you. Walk your journey. The only comparison you're allowed to make is you v. you. You versus yourself.” “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is unless you validate it.” “Skepticism always blocks creativity, which then also blocks your wealth. You could be saying ‘no' to an opportunity of a lifetime.” “Your network is your net worth.” “The side-lines are not where the magic happens. The magic happens on the court. The magic happens when you're in the game and you're playing. Even if you're falling and you're stumbling and you're hurting yourself and you're looking like the biggest idiot out there, you're in the game.” “Healthy wealth building is slow and steady.” “If you have more time than you have money, then use your time to make money. If you have more money than you have time, then let your money work for you by investing in it and getting interest or dividends or capital gains on your money.” “168 hours a week, that's all you get. That's all any of us get anytime, anywhere, anyplace. 168 hours. What are you doing with yours? Because time is money.” “We can control what we say ‘yes' and ‘no' to. ‘No' is a complete sentence.” Related Content: 2022 Workshops - Coupon code: workshop50 Wholesale Bundle System Email questions Learn With Us Coaching The Amazon Files Hub Grow Your Amazon Business!

“Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.” Luke 21:32–33As we approach the final days of this liturgical year, we continue to read about the end of the world. Today we read that both Heaven and earth, as they currently are, will pass away. This is worth pondering.We know that life is full of change. It has been said that the one thing that never changes is change itself. Everything else changes. But when it comes to earth, it is hard to believe that it will one day “pass away.” Some scientists believe that the earth has existed for over four and a half billion years. That's a long time! Now consider the fact that Jesus prophesied the end of this earth as we know it today. When will it happen? Only God knows.Heaven, as it exists today, is also prophesied by our Lord to pass away. Heaven, as it is right now, is a pure spiritual reality in which the only corporeal bodies present are those of Jesus and our Blessed Mother. The rest of Heaven consists of the Divine Essence, the souls of those who have been redeemed and the angels of God. But if Heaven even passes away, what awaits?First of all, the only reason that these two realities, Heaven and earth, will pass away in their current form is because, at the Final Judgment, there will be a “New Heavens and a New Earth,” as spoken of in the Book of Revelation. At that time, Heaven and earth will be united as one, and this new creation will exist for eternity.But is there anything that is currently eternal? Anything that will never experience change? We humans will be changed at the resurrection of the dead, the angels will encounter a new home, so to speak, and God will establish a new and permanent Kingship. But, according to Jesus' teaching today, the one thing that will remain are His words: “...my words will not pass away.” Again, this is worth pondering.In a world filled with change and uncertainty, we need some form of stability. And that stability is the Truth found in the Word of God. The Word of God, as revealed to us through the Scriptures, must become our rock foundation upon which our whole lives are built and exist. Pondering, praying with, meditating on, and believing the Word of God enables us to stand on firm and unchanging spiritual ground as we go through the change of this life and even the changes that will come at the end of time. Though this may seem somewhat mysterious in nature, it is a helpful truth to understand and believe. Everything will pass away except Jesus' words. Thus, the most secure thing we can do in life is to cling to His words and never let go.Reflect, today, upon the importance of truly immersing yourself in the Word of God. How much time do you spend each week reading it, praying with it and allowing it to become your daily food? The Word of God is not simply a book of teachings meant to inspire you or guide you. The Word of God is a Living Word. It is God in His unchangeable form. God, in His essence, will never change, and engaging Him through the revelation of His written Word is one essential way by which you will be able to experience true stability in life and prepare for each and every change to come until the final order of life is permanently established.My Eternal Word, You are unchanging and eternal. You are the rock foundation upon which I must always rely. As I continue to experience the many changes encountered in this life, please enter my soul through Your written Word, so that I will find the stability I need. As I stand firm in You, I look forward with joy to the New Heavens and New Earth that await. Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: catholic-daily-reflections.comCopyright © 2021 My Catholic Life!

Human beings have an ability to tolerate quite a bit. Oftentimes, this is a helpful survival strategy. Rather than being overwhelmed by life's frailties to the point flight or fight is kicking in, it's generally a good thing to accept the realities of existence that cannot be changed and then operate accordingly on that basis. This is better than being constantly unnerved by real and sometimes alarming things that it seems one cannot control. But sometimes a huge disruption lets people know that they have been tolerating something concerning that's impact could have been mitigated by a sustained effort which leads to a new solution. Neil Day, CTO of R-Zero, makes this point about the seeming unstoppability of certain infectious diseases. Main TakeawaysSolving Multiple Problems: Not only was the coronavirus a huge problem, typical disinfectant solutions, such as liquid disinfectants, were difficult to apply and inefficient. Of course, massive problems are also opportunities for innovation.Relying on Something Tried and True: Using UV light as a disinfectant has historical precedence as well as scientific evidence concerning its effectiveness to curb the spread of viruses. R-Zero leaned into this established technology and then created a product that could utilize it effectively. Sensors in the machine as well as its capacity to hold data allow for implementation of risk management procedures.Now That We Are Utilizing UV More…: UV technology may become a more typical means to disinfect both businesses, and, eventually, homes. In recent history, people have mostly accepted that illness from viruses is an inevitable part of life. Based upon the experience of the pandemic and the potential solutions that may spring forth to solve that problem, this mentality may evolve and push humanity into a different expectation concerning health.

This week Brian speaks with Ben Stein, CEO of Staple! Relying on humans to extract, enter and manage data is a valuable waste of resources. These activities can be slow, error-prone and expensive, and worse still, no employee enjoys this sort of mundane, repetitive work. Staple has developed an ML tool that reads, interprets and extracts structured data from documents faster, more accurately and more affordably than any human can, at scale. Our data extraction capabilities operate successfully regardless of layout or language. Although business documents like invoices and receipts are common use cases for AP automation, we can an also capture data from semi-structured and unstructured documents including medical claims, bills of lading, trade settlement documentation and many more.

There is a difference between relying on each other and relying on Them. I believe healing and progress will take place in our country when there is more of the first and far less of the second, but in order to have less of the second, we have some uncomfortable questions to answer. I think this is important to talk about because as the world is going through these challenging times and shifting into whatever is coming next, I hear so many people say, “Screw it. I'm just gonna lock my door and be a hermit.” or “I'm gonna move to the woods and be all by myself because I don't need anyone else.” And so they shut themselves off from the benefits of community, sometimes because of a misguided belief that we're not supposed to have to depend on anyone. But here's the thing. There's a difference between learning to rely on each other and learning to rely on Them. Relying on people with a face and a name you know—someone you could invite over for coffee—in a relationship that's an agreed upon, two way street is completely different than relying on Them, the government or giant corporations/systems. Each other vs. Them Surviving and thriving because you depended on each other was normal way back in the day, and is even pretty common in some communities still. (I'm looking at you, Yoder.) Community and depending on each other used to be the name of the game. If it was 1800 whatever and you were on the prairie, would you give a rat's ass or probably even know what the government was up to on a daily basis? But I bet they knew what Mr. So and So was up to down the way. They had to. Mr. So and So and Mrs. Whoever and your family were the only ones for miles. You had each other. You didn't have Them. Community is give and take. Community is I'll scratch your back, you scratch mine. Community is I'll help you finish siding your house if you butcher and process my deer this year. It's bartering. It's helping each other. It's following through on your end of the agreement. It's offering help in ways that you can and knowing other people will help you out when you need it. I don't feel that with government. I don't feel that with the public school system or the medical system or the corporate food system. That's not community. That's Them. And yet there's a lot of people relying on those things. And when that system starts to break down—as it currently is—we have a lot of struggle and chaos. Because people have been relying on Them, not each other. This is important to talk about I hear people in the survival community sometimes spout off the importance of being able to care for yourself because ain't nobody coming to help you. And while I agree with that, I think some people misconstrue what they're saying. The way I see it, they're saying learn to take care of yourselves because They aren't coming to help you. But you'd better believe that someone is coming to help you. Your community will help each other, right? You've seen this happen in times of struggle, right? Gosh, I hope so. If not, you need to build that community. I also think it's important to talk about because there are people out there who won't accept help from others because they've learned that relying on others is weak. Or that you're taking a handout. Or that you should be able to fend for yourself. And I think they've learned that because of watching others take from the system and everything that comes from that. Some uncomfortable truths Now, I want to point out here that I think it's great that there are food banks and soup kitchens and places for people to get clothing and there are shelters for people who need it. I'm not against assistance. I just know that some forms of assistance are horribly abused by some people. And I think it's harder to abuse that assistance when it's not done on a large scale by Them. But, and this is a huge but, if we're going to be a people who talk about how it's not the government's job...
The path that led Goura to Damanhur started when she was a little child. The life she was born into didn't resonate with her - so, Goura left her home in Italy searching for something different from a “normal” life. She knew there was a path out there for her, but she didn't know what it was. Relying on her inspiration alone, she was guided to move to Costa Rica - but before she could leave, her sister and synchronicity pointed her to Damanhur. The day she arrived at Damanhur, she visited a temple and within three hours fell completely in love. That day she gave up smoking - the only rule at Damanhur - and then went home to pack her bags. 21 years later, she still calls Damanhur her home. Goura is not a rational person - purposefully - because she allows herself to live deeper than her rational mind. But even for Goura, overriding the rational mind took practice. In her life at Damanhur she has been exploring the material plane, but also her own potentials - and really, who she is as a person. Every day, she works to know who she is, and to manifest it. Using experiences, practices, rituals, instruments, technologies - all integrated together to build the relationship to herself and that which is all around her. We are all born with greatness - but we need to put in constant work to get through the multilayered, ongoing process of being in touch with that greatness. Humans are a complex system, in a complex world - but we're just bridges who get to experience all these dimensions, and that's the true gift of being human. We connect to ourselves through other life forms, and to gain a deep reconnection means to live life differently from the divided world that leads us to be separate. Your spiritual journey has to manifest through you in your daily life. You need to treat plants well, and your body well, and accept others' diversities and perspectives, because your divine manifests through the human divine. You can remember the oneness and harmony we all belong to, because it's all love, and the love is always there for us. Being in a place like Damanhur helps us touch into this magical alchemy because Damanhur itself is alive, but it is available outside Damanhur, too - we just have to remember to feel it. You can also visit Damanhur through their virtual reality tours, where you can take part in specific experiences such as meditations. Or, if you feel called, then just go in person because there's really nothing else like it. Goura's Bio Goura is the co-creator and instructor of the Damanhur School of Alchemy and Rituality, a transformational travel coach, tour guide of the Temples of Humankind and a facilitator of personal and group meditations. For more than 16 years she was part of the Damanhurian Spiritual Way of the Monks/Nuns. She spent the first 11 years being a nun, fully embracing the discipline of this path to live Mysticism and the Sacredeness of one's potential. She currently continues to help and support Damanhur Magical Journeys all over the world. For over 10 years Goura has specialized in welcoming and guiding people from all over the world in the exploration of Damanhur Federation of Communities and its Temples of Humankind.She became a student of Alchemy and Rituality many years ago, studying directly with Falco Tarassaco, the main founder and inspirer of Damanhur. She continues to learn the theoretical and practical sciences of these subjects with her research group of passionate people like herself.

Imagine the soul who has lived a life filled with complete abandonment to God. They achieved the heights of holiness and were not deterred by earthly distractions. Throughout their life they sought to serve our Lord and to be a continual instrument of Mercy for others. Many people were saved on account of their sanctity and their total devotion to the Will of God. Now imagine that holy soul entering into the glories of Heaven. What a profound experience of absolute joy! Nothing could be more glorious than that moment. But once in Heaven, is it conceivable that this holy soul will forget about those on Earth? Is it possible that the people who were loved and served so deeply would disappear from their minds as a result of being in Heaven? Most certainly not. In fact, once in Heaven, the holy souls who lived on Earth are even more consumed with a desire to spread the Mercy of God. Seek out these saints. Seek their intercession, ask for their inspiration, follow their example and know that you have a myriad of holy men and women seeking to serve you from the glories of Heaven (See Diary #1582).Ponder the saints this day. Especially ponder their burning love for you and their desire that all people receive the Mercy of God. God uses them from Heaven and continually sends them to distribute His grace. Open your heart to these holy men and women and they will pour forth the Mercy of God into your life.Oh, holy saints of God! How glorious you are in your Heavenly splendor! I thank you for your love and service on Earth and now I call upon your intercession from Heaven. Please pray for me and for all people that we may imitate your holiness while on Earth and obtain the glory in which you now share. Saints of God, pray for us. Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: www.divinemercy.lifeCopyright © 2021 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved. Used with permission via RSS feed.

Today I'm riding solo and I wanna talk about something uncertain that is causing a bit of a scare to all Amazon sellers including myself. This unofficial form that was released, if it becomes official, will surely stir-up and affect our rankings. The question now is, are we ready? Over the years, rules change and we eventually have to adapt to it. This episode, as we talk about the possible changes, we will also talk about how you could possibly crush it through. These rules may negatively impact your ranking, launch and scaling. Planning beforehand, techniques I do to adapt, and changes you should or should not make. I hope this episode gives you composure and helps you out in some ways. In This Episode: [00:20] Solo episode's inspiration [01:00] Seller form post about an unofficial rules update to Amazon.

The Information Age considers the economy and technology to be the driving forces of development. And so, society considers the rational left brain more important and emphasizes its analytical reasoning and logical thinking abilities. But as society enters a new age, it has begun to require more creative and meaningful thinking skills. Relying on the left brain alone is no longer enough to meet the needs of development. Therefore, we need to learn to develop and improve our six essential right brain abilities – design, story, symphony, empathy, play, and meaning. By doing this, we can cultivate a whole new mind. A Whole New Mind is a window for us to catch sight of the Conceptual Age and a new mind. Author Daniel H. Pink is a futurist who has been praised by Fortune as “the wisest thinker”.
