“I think that the future of bookkeeping really lies in the advisory portion of bookkeeping. I think that we are at the point in technology where we no longer necessarily need a person to do the data entry.” -Jennifer Hume It is hard to know our own value. We often undervalue ourselves while overvaluing the skills and abilities of others. Shifting our mindset to one that balances these opposing points of view is the first step in building the kind of future in our businesses that we often covet in others. Technology is progressing ever faster, and it can make us feel like we can't keep up and that our skills aren't as valuable in the face of AI. But AI is sourced from us, and while it may be the future of our systems and processes, we are a very long way away from it being able to convert all that information into truly nuanced and helpful advice. Jennifer Hume, owner of Coronation Bookkeeping & Tax Services, is this episode's featured guest. She has spent her career helping businesses manage their finances and taxes effectively. In this episode, she speaks powerfully about the power of mindset in business success, what the world looks like when we get out of our way, and how our human experience and advice will always trump AI. If you are struggling in your bookkeeping business, not sure how to move up, feeling lost and alone, then this episode will get you thinking about the future differently. One that sets technology to work for you, so you can do more of the work you love. During this interview, you'll learn...

There was a time in my life when I viewed my wrinkles and graying hair as embarrassing signs of aging, a flawed depiction that society often perpetuates. It was a journey of self-discovery and unlearning these misconceptions that helped me realize the beauty that comes with aging and every gray hair, wrinkle, and year is a testament to our resilience, wisdom, and beauty. Today, I'm eager to share with you all what I've learned about aging gracefully, challenging societal norms, and debunking myths about aging. Together, we'll be embracing the aging process as a natural part of our existence, rather than a dreaded inevitability. As we navigate through this journey to redefine aging, we will delve deeper into the importance of health habits and self-care as they play a crucial role in aging gracefully. We'll explore the significance of nutritional choices, regular exercise, and quality sleep and how these can influence our aging process. Our conversation will not just revolve around the physical aspects of aging, but also the societal and cultural implications that often cloud our perception of growing old. Let's challenge the narrative around aging, shift our perspectives, and celebrate every bit of our journey - every wrinkle, every gray hair, and every year. Chapter Summaries: Redefining Aging (0:00:06) Unlearning societal norms and internalized beliefs, embracing aging, nurturing health habits, and debunking myths about aging. Aging, Nutrition, Exercise, and Society (0:19:14) Fueling with nutritious food, exercising, quality sleep, and understanding cultural influences on aging is key to aging gracefully.

The concept of traveling in consciousness to parallel realities is a mix of quantum physics, metaphysics, and speculative fiction. While no scientifically proven methods currently exist to undertake such travel, many fictional and theoretical ideas have been suggested, both in scientific literature and popular culture. I have personally experienced traveling through parallel realities in meditation, dreams and in real life. I have received numerous confirmations of this. I have documented my experiences in my book. I of course am unable to prove this. I want to explore the ways you can move through through parallel realities from quantum entanglement, to vibrational alignment, from guided trips to worm holes. Understanding this will open you to vast multiverse of possiblities To end this I take you through a meditation to help you shift into the parallel reality of your choice. Intro 00:00Meditation 30:08

In Allen's part of the USA, an escaped emu that was on the loose! We then discuss an investigation into a wind turbine collapse at the Akmene wind farm in Lithuania, which was caused by a malfunctioning sensor that provided incorrect data to the turbine controller. The root cause analysis took several months, and the wind farm was shut down until the issue was resolved. Shifting to policy news, the podcast analyzes the UK's latest CfD auction round which awarded 1.5GW of onshore wind capacity across 24 projects in Scotland and Wales. Offshore wind was absent from this round due to limited funding availability and inflation concerns. In the US, Equinor and BP are seeking to renegotiate offshore wind PPAs for their Empire Wind and Beacon Wind projects off Massachusetts unless they can achieve a 6-8% rate of return. On the technology front, we discuss a PES Wind Magazine article from Vaisala about how lidar systems can measure turbulence intensity to improve wind farm performance. Mounting lidar systems on turbine nacelles provides hub-height data to anticipate incoming wind conditions. To close, we cover news that EDF Renewables will repower Africa's oldest wind farm in Morocco, doubling its capacity to 100MW with new Siemens Gamesa turbines.

It was roaming around scaring local residents. And in fact, the, the local animal control officer said, Hey, be careful because emus are dangerous. But they did capture the emu. He would have been left behind by a former owner who moved out of state. And just left the emu behind and the new owners of the property were willing to help cooperate to kind of capture the emu. So the emu will have a new home with a local species expert and I assume that local species expert is in Australia. So you're getting another emu, Rosemary. Because Massachusetts is not the right place for those things. Rosemary Barnes: Oh, all right. That, that hurt, that hurt my ears as an Australian. Can we just clear one thing up? It's emu, emu. It's not an emu, it's an emu. You, you Americans, you know, like you don't get to take an Australian animal and give it your own, your own name. Just respect, respect the emu. Allen Hall: Well, you're getting a new friend in Australia. I'm going to send that emu right back. Enefit Green along with GE have been looking at an incident or accident that happened at the Akmene wind farm in Lithuania back in May. And they've been conducting a series of evaluations over the last couple of months, where they finally have come to a conclusion and, looked at the findings and determined that this wind turbine fell over and it's, it's about a, I think it's a five megawatt machine fill up in Lithuania. And there was 14 wind turbines total that the root cause analysis revealed that a malfunctioning sensor provided incorrect data to the turbine controller, resulting in excessive stress on the tower structure and the subsequent collapse of the turbine. So that sounds like, to me, everybody, a single point failure in some GE turbines, and they didn't turn it back on until, actually, this week, until they got it all figured out.
There's another “State of the Industry” report out this month. It actually came last week from Linqia, which is one of the enterprise influencer marketing software companies out there. These reports are always useful, so I like to report on them here on the show. If you want to read the full report for yourself, which I encourage you to do, you go to their website and sign up and trade your email address for their research. You become a lead in their platform … that's how B2B marketing often works. But it's a fair trade and, who knows? Linqia might be just what your company needs. So, go do it. We'll certainly share the link to do so in our show notes for this episode. But Keith Bendes, who is the vice-president of strategy for Linqia is here today to dig into the highlights of the report with us. He is also the co-host of another great podcast, by the way. It's called Creator Economy Live. So go check that out when you have a moment as well. Keith knows the influencer space as well as anyone. And you know what that means … we just turned on the mics and cameras and had a fun conversation I think you'll enjoy. We hit on plenty of the report insights as well, so you'll be informed as much as or even more so entertained today on the show. Here are some of the nuggets the report surfaces we're going to touch on: Influencer Budgets are increasing. 75.5% of Linqia's survey respondents either increased or remained unchanged from last year's spending. Brands are using influencer content in more places. It's no longer about organic posts with a few paid ads. Influencer creative is driving brand creative now. Paid amplification is bigger than you thought. More than half of brands are spending at least half their budgets on media amplification. But there are still challenges. ROI is still the big one. And of course, new topics like AI, Threads, and Creator Generated Content … which we'll distinguish from User Generated Content makes its first appearance in the Linqia study. We dig in more with Keith Bendes from Linqia today on the show. This episode of Winfluence is presented by CIPIO.ai. We are helping brands transform their digital marketing with user-generated content videos and images at scale. Come see us at CIPIO.ai.

Women, want to learn how to confidently take control of your money? First, we've got a lot of things working against us. We start and stop our careers many times for kids and family members, and we live longer than men on average because of that, we typically spend our money taking care of our male partner and tend to avoid talking about money. It makes sense why, as our guest Jenifer Sapel, a financial advisor and owner of Utor Wealth, said at the beginning of this episode - we're often talked to like infants. But Jen cautions us that context is important. You see, the financial services industry was designed by and for cis white men. So, as women, we've got to start talking about money, educating ourselves about money, and aligning our money with our values. Jen brings it all in this conversation, where she shares the 3 phases of your financial life that you need to know about, why we need to break the model of ranking things from best to worst when it comes to money, and why you need to know that wherever you're starting from is perfectly ok - learning about money is a lifetime practice. And you don't want to miss our conversation about fun financial facts about women - like that banks could legally require a man's signature for a woman to apply for a loan all the way until 1988. That's not that long ago. The opinions voiced in this podcast are for general information only and are not intended to provide specific advice or recommendations for any individual.

“It's all mindset” You hear that a LOT I'm sure, and while maybe you know it's true on some level…. You might feel like you DO have a pretty good mindset. You're positive, upbeat, optimistic. You desire success. You feel like you deserve success. Yet…. Somewhere you're stuck. And, knowing that you CAN achieve success but haven't yet is the most frustrating part. So, what gives? Unconscious mind does. Literally (lol). Here are some things to understand foundationally: Unconscious mind isn't logical Unconscious mind picks up beliefs (or patterns) from life experience that it continues to play out… unconsciously (lol) You can't “think” your way into changing your unconscious Unconscious only does things it believes have some value (it's not “out to get you”) Unconscious would rather you be miserable and in a “known” spot, than go into the unknown and potentially be happy In fact, unconscious isn't concerned with your happiness at all. It's only job is survival… and procreation. Because of all of this, unconscious mind can create a lot of blocks for us on our road to success. And that's what sparked this series of podcast episodes where, together, we'll work through some of the most common belief systems I see – and exactly how to shift them. So instead of saying “It's all mindset”, let's say… “It's all unconscious programming you picked up when you were younger that, while it served a purpose at some point in time, it's holding you back from your next level of success – and therefore we want to shift out of it” (I think I need to work on my catch-phrase lol) Ok! Excited yet? Let's dig into the latest episode of the Scottie Taylor Jr Success + Money + Mindset Podcast! This episode will be for you if you find yourself… Not saving as much money as you'd like Experiencing patterns of debt (where you get debt, pay it off, and then get it again) Are feeling “stuck” and not growing your business or net worth End up making money just to overspend and lose it Are sick and tired of feeling stagnant in your life / business / finances
Dr Dieter Veldsman, an award-winning psychologist and HR executive, explores the employer-employee changing relationship and what the future of work might look like. Dieter shares some of the significant changes that have occurred surrounding this relationship, including employees redirecting their focus to consider how their work fits around their life, purpose and meaning. Similarly, employers are questioning if the jobs they have designed are creating meaning to someone's life. By engaging in a journey of self-exploration, employers can ensure that they are driven by their purpose and values, allowing them to develop an authentic narrative which is attractive to employees and potential talent. We discuss how trust-based collaborations are the core to navigating through these changes, and Dieter shares how employers can build this trust.

Successfully securing funding for a new zero-till drill or a nitrogen-saving fertilizer treatment feels good, but one-off payouts to farmers as a funding model for advancing agriculture in the big picture is short-sighted, says Peter “Wheat Pete” Johnson, RealAgriculture’s resident agronomist.

Today we are joined by Dr. Karen Carr, Associate Professor Emerita in the Department of History at Portland State University and the author of Shifting Currents: A World History of Swimming (Reaktion Books, 2022). Shifting Currents is the winner of the 2023 North American Society for Sports History Monograph Book Award. In our conversation, we discussed the historical, cultural, and geographic divisions between swimmers and non-swimmers; the reasons for the rise and fall of swimming in Northern Eurasia; and the racialization of swimming starting in the 13th century. In Shifting Currents, Carr offers a comprehensive history of swimming from the paleolithic to the present. Over four hundred pages, and with almost one hundred images, she illustrates how a centuries long divide developed between Northern Eurasian non-swimmers and the rest of the world, including Africa, the Americas and Australia, where people swam frequently and well. She argues that since the early Iron Age, Northern Eurasian people adopted and abandoned swimming several times but never really adapted to the water as a natural site for human social engagement and play that characterized indigenous swimming. This longstanding divide between swimmers and non-swimmers persisted not only because of the climate, but also due to long-stranding Northern Eurasian prejudices against getting in the water: namely that swimming was and is too dangerous, too improper with close connection to nudity and sex, too sacred since water was connected to the gods, and too foreign. These prejudices have surprising longevity and explain in part northern European practices such as the floating of witches, and the preference for the breaststroke. At the same time, as Carr points out, elite Northern Eurasians began during the Iron Age to swim and they continued to swim (with waxing and waning popularity) throughout the Middle Ages and into the present. While indigenous swimming was a lifestyle practiced across class and gender, in Northern Eurasia swimming was a shibboleth to status and wealth. At times it was central to elite status. As Plato claimed, a well-educated men could be identified because they knew how to read and how to swim and by the 19th century swimming became part of a well-rounded middle-class education. At other times, it was disfavoured: Carr argues convincingly that the Mongol invasions significantly undermined swimming's importance among northern Eurasian elites. In the third and fourth sections of the book, “Still Swimming” and “Changing Places”, Carr shows how swimming became racialized and the damage that this racialization has done to indigenous swimming practices. African, American and Australian peoples were stronger swimmers than Europeans (who had largely forgotten how to do the crawl). Europeans viewed non-Europeans strength in the water as a sign of primitivity and used it as part of their justification for enslaving people in the global south. By the 19th century, European's feelings about the water reversed and colonizers around the world now sought to bar people of color from swimming in the same places as white people. Carr ends on a declensionist note: Europeans and their settler-colonial descendants have largely succeeded in stamping out indigenous swimming around the world. Shifting Currents is a very compelling history of swimming that not only charts its development around the world but does so in a way that ties together its history with larger trends in global history. Written in a very readable style, full of handsome images, Shifting Currents should be read by scholars and non-schoalrs alike interested in swimming, sport more generally, and global histories that decentre the global North/West experience.

Carrie Miller: Hello everyone. Welcome to another episode of the Serious Sellers podcast by Helium 10. I'm going to be your host today. My name is Carrie Miller and this is our Walmart Wednesday, where we talk about all things Walmart. I answer questions we have. Sometimes we have guests, we do demos about how to utilize Walmart and how to sell on Walmart. Let's go ahead and get into it. I'm going to go ahead and get into some interesting information. Carrie Miller: Today I actually went to the Walmart conference. I think it was about two weeks ago. There were some interesting updates there and I wanted to share them with you, just in case you weren't there. There were about 1,500 sellers there. It wasn't invite only, but hopefully in the future it'll be open to more sellers, because that would be, I think it's a really great opportunity not only to learn from Walmart, but also to meet other Walmart sellers and get encouraged and see how everyone else is doing. Carrie Miller: The first thing that I want to talk about is that they're actually opening another marketplace, which is really exciting, because that means more opportunity for sellers. The first marketplace is obviously the US. We also have Canada, Mexico and now Chile. If you ever had any interest in selling in South America, they are opening a marketplace up in Chile. That's a great opportunity there if you're able to do that. Another thing I wanted to share is that they actually mentioned that they are still rolling out brand stores. If you haven't gotten access to it, don't fret, because they should be giving access to everyone soon. They're slowly rolling it out, just like they did with WFS, and they slowly just added people to those. Just keep an eye on that so that you can start creating your store just like they have on Amazon. You can put all of your products in there and showcase your brand. All they have to do customer has to do is click on your brand name on your actual listings. Carrie Miller: The next thing that I have on my agenda here is that they also mentioned that they are going to allow same day pickup. The same day pickup basically means for anyone who is a local store owner, If you have a brick and mortar store, that means that you can actually offer your products for pickup and people can actually come to your store and pick it up. Or if somebody wants same day delivery, then Walmart has a last mile pickup service that you can utilize to get same day delivery. That's pretty cool for anyone who owns a brick and mortar store in any location. It would be mostly for wherever people are local to that brick and mortar, but a really good opportunity for anyone who is local with a brick and mortar. Carrie Miller: Another thing is that large items are now available to be fulfilled through WFS. Before it was only up to 150 pounds, but now you can actually ship big things like multi-boxes, like maybe a patio set or trampolines or canoes or anything like that. Very exciting, especially because you get a lot more visibility and it helps your ranking when you're utilizing WFS. Now you can use WFS if you have big products. Another thing is that and I actually posted this in our winning with Walmart group Side note, if you're not in our winning with Walmart group by helium 10, go ahead and join that so that you can get access to other sellers and ask questions and we can answer them for you. Video ads are now available if you're a brand registered owner. If you are brand registered on Walmart, go ahead and check it out. You should be able to get access on ads because you have brand registry, but if not, you would probably want to open up a ticket. If you can't find access to that, Then this is one of my favorite updates and I actually got an email about this, I think, two days ago and that is that you can actually put a credit card or a debit card on your ads now, before it. Carrie Miller: Just they basically Always take out the amount out of your total sales, but I like using a credit card because I like to use travel points and so. On Amazon, I use you know, you know those travel credit cards to get a bunch of points and by the end of the year I have, you know, tons of points. I know a lot of other sellers like to do that too, but it was such a bummer that you couldn't do it on. On Walmart, too, but now you can actually add a credit card on there or a debit card so you can pay for your ads that way, which is really awesome. So that's something, to you know, look forward to if you are one of those people who likes to take advantage of the opportunity for travel points, All right. Carrie Miller: So I'm gonna go and get some into some discussion about just some issues that people have had. I have been looking in the group and I noticed a lot of people talking about so different situations and one of the things is comp errors. So comp errors are Basically kind of like the pesticide errors that you get on that you get on on Amazon. So if you ever get those pesticide notices where you get your product taken down, Comp error is similar but they don't really actually tell you. Usually when you get a comp error it just says comp error and your listing is seen down. You've no idea how to fix it. But usually it's because you use a product, a word that is, you know, forbidden. So what I would recommend is kind of going through those words that you know you can't use on Amazon. If you used any of them, a Walmart, delete them from your listing. A lot of times your listing will literally just come Pop back up within 15 minutes. So I think that's a really good, you know, A good thing to just try if you have the comp errors, and so I mean I've been seeing a lot of these comp errors. So that is something to take a look at and you know kind of refine that if you really have to delete the whole thing and start from scratch, I would recommend doing that too. Carrie Miller: Another question that somebody had is that they wanted to know why they weren't, you know, seeing any spend their ads and they had budget in there and they've set it up. And I have a few thoughts about this. Number one is that you're probably not targeting the right keywords and maybe your bids aren't high enough because you need to get those impressions. So I'm gonna actually, towards the end, I'm gonna talk to you a little bit about Cerebro and how you can do some exact campaigns for your PPC. But it's really important to make sure that you do keyword research and helium 10. We do have our Cerebro tool, which is literally the best keyword research tool. There's nothing else like it for Walmart and you can find, you know, all the best keywords by using Cerebro. So how they recommend doing that. Carrie Miller: And then another question that people have been asking is that if they Add an ace, if they should add an ace in on their product when they're actually uploading a product. So when you upload your product, you know it'll say you know what is your Amazon ace in? I don't recommend putting it there. I don't see why you would want to do it. I know there's one way to upload where you can literally just connect all of your Accounts, like you can just upload to Walmart via Amazon or Target or Etsy or eBay. I really don't recommend that method. My best suggestion for you to get your products and listings up properly is to use the flat file or bulk Uploads. Okay, it's a little bit harder, but once you learn the flat files, you have more control, the update faster, you can add variations in there, you just have a lot more control over your listing in there. So I highly recommend just uploading your listing with the flat file instead of these other ways, and you do not need to add an ace in there. There's really no reason for that. So I would suggest not doing that. Carrie Miller: I have a question. You said someone said I have nothing on Amazon. I still have comp errors. Okay, so somebody has saying they've compared. So what I would suggest doing is maybe kind of looking through your listing and seeing if there are any kind of Comp errors type errors maybe something like maybe you use antibacterial. There's lists on some forums about Amazon words. That's kind of what I have looked at is those words that are forbidden on Amazon and just kind of see if you have any of those. Or you could delete your listing completely and see if you can start over and just kind of slowly see if there are some trigger words in there. Another thing is I definitely recommend, you know, opening up a case for that If you still have issues. SellCord they've actually been on our podcast and Jake was on last month, sellcord.co if you contact them they always are able to help with. You know, account deactivations and compares. So if you really can't solve it on your own, I would just contacting them because they can help you expedite that whole scenario. Carrie Miller: Okay, and then another thing you know with all of that is it just has Matt in general. So I've kind of run into this issue. I was doing some, you know work on getting up a hemp cream and it was very difficult experience. You need to. You know, for any liquids you always have to submit a safety data sheet if you want to get your product in WFS. So if you're selling like a shampoo or a lotion or something like that, you always need to do that and submit that. When I first uploaded the hemp cream, it was denied, denied, denied, and then I got it approved. So I had, you know, the product up enlisted because there are other hemp products on Wal-Mart. However, apparently it's actually not. You're not really supposed to sell this product, even though there are some on Walmart and it's for sure forbidden from WFS. So some kind of has Matt type products you can sell on Walmart but you have to ship them yourself. So just keep that in mind. If you sell anything like hemp or you know any liquid issue products, you could have these kinds of issues and you might have to ship them yourself. It's kind of a stressful thing, but you know, I think it'll change in the future where you can send these things in, but for now you can still get on there for the most part and do F fulfilled by merchant. So that is what I recommend on that. Carrie Miller: So let's go ahead and get into what I wanted to talk about. To show you just I get a lot of PPC questions and so I wanted to share with you some strategies about just PPC in general. So we have a reverse product ID lookup on cerebral for Wal-Mart. So when you go into helium 10, you're going to want to go over to Cerebro and what you'll do is you will put in product ID. So the product ID is actually in the URL. So if you go to a product so I actually looked at men's genes as an example here and let's just go with the George. Okay. So George Sheens, and what you do is you basically find the product ID up in the URL or, if you have the X-ray extension, you actually can pull up the X-ray extension and then oh, I'm having issues there you can actually pull up the product ID there and just copy it straight from the extension. So that is one way to find it. So this is what we have here and we're just doing a reverse product ID and just to see what that product is ranking for. Carrie Miller: So this particular product is ranking for quite a few things sponsored and organic. You can sort by sponsored ranks so you can see, when you put these things in, if they are even advertising. It looks like this person isn't or this brand isn't even advertising. But you can also sort by search volume and look through things. So a lot of people like to go for these main keywords, but I recommend kind of looking for the lower search volume as well, and I don't necessarily think you should look at brand names. But you can find a lot of keywords in here. That would be very profitable, but maybe they're only 1,000. Carrie Miller: Let's see big and tall. If you have big and tall jeans that's a good one to kind of look for. Men's Baggy jeans is only 94. I have some literal keywords that have only 17, such as a month, and I've made multiple sales on those. The more relevant keywords, the better Work. Jeans for men it's only 200 search volume, but again, if you have really good work jeans, then you can use this and what you can do is find a bunch of these little search volume keywords and they actually add up to a lot. So what I would suggest doing is putting five to 10 keywords in campaign of the lower search volume. If you have higher search volume keywords, you really should put those in their own campaign. I recommend doing exact sponsored product ads because I've really had a hard time making sure that I'm staying profitable. Carrie Miller: Maybe some of you are different, but the broadened phrase I've not been able to get control of as much. So what I've been doing is I've been going to Cerebro often and I'm looking for keywords and what I do is I find those keywords and I kind of group them into the lower search volume together, the high search volume. They're gonna be in their own campaign and that's how you're gonna do this. Okay, so that is what I recommend for your PPC and because we have access to these keywords, you actually can sort through, like, if you wanted to find phrases containing genes, you can find anything that has something to do with genes. So all of these keywords are genes related, but they're just kind of iterations of the phrases that you can find all kinds of great potential keywords to target if you're selling something like that. So what I would say is kind of go around bigger keywords as well. Make sure that you're also capitalizing on those smaller keywords. Carrie Miller: Another thing is attributes. So in your actual listing there are places where you need to put color and size. Put the color and size into your actual title where they say it Usually, if it says men's jeans, is there a certain color? Are they black denim or regular denim? And put that in the actual title so that people can find you. Put it in the back end on the attributes. Put all the colors, all the sizing, everything that you can possibly do, so that you will show up in these searches. So that's what I would recommend Make sure that you have everything fully optimized and look for a bunch of these keywords to target. Now you can do the video ads. If you're brand registered, you can do the headline ads. So it's really, really a great time to utilize this feature. Carrie Miller: If you're not doing pay-per-click advertising, you're definitely leaving money on the table. So pay-per-click advertising is the best thing that you need to do to start on Walmart, other than optimizing your listings. I actually talked to a lot of people that they basically they say I'm not having much success on Walmart and I asked did you optimize your listing? Well, I just copied it over from Amazon. That's no, no, number one. You should definitely not just copy over from Amazon, because Walmart does not like that. They will suppress your listing and not put you in the search. And then also then I'll ask hey, have you started doing advertising? And people will say, no, I have not done any advertising. So if you haven't started advertising, that's really, really important to get some exposure for your products, get some ranking for your products. So if you haven't done that, I mean I don't actually don't know one seller who would say, oh, I launched a new product on Amazon, but I didn't optimize it and I didn't do any ads. It just unheard of. Carrie Miller: So think, keep the same energy that you have for Amazon from Walmart, so that you can, you know, just be successful. I talked to a lot of people at the Walmart conference and there were a lot of very successful Walmart sellers. I think the top was, you know they were doing about 700,000 a day in sales a day. So there is a lot of opportunity and a lot of possibility for Walmart. You just have to really push through and figure it out and just put that effort in to you know, making sure you optimize your listing and start the PPC campaigns. If you don't have, you know something to help you manage your campaigns. We do have Adtomic for Walmart. We also have a sister company, Pacvue. That is also has some Walmart advertising tools. So lots of great you know opportunities to find, you know software to help support you in the PPC journey. Carrie Miller: So I highly, you know, encourage you to go ahead. Make sure you start advertising. If you haven't started advertising, get your ads going. If you need help, you can always go into the Walmart winning with Walmart group and just get some assistance there. And also make sure you use Cerebro to find the keywords that I you're going to save so much money by finding these exact words. I did some auto campaigns at first and it was just out of control, not even helping me at all. So once I started using Cerebro I started becoming very profitable, so highly recommend doing that and good luck with everything. Let me know if you have any issues with anything and in the Walmart group, and I'd be happy to answer any questions. But hope you all have a great rest of the day and happy selling. Bye.

The enigmatic case of Rex Heuermann takes another complex twist as former FBI Special Agent and regular "Hidden Killers" contributor, Jennifer Coffindaffer, joins host Tony Brueski for a deep dive into the current speculations. Their discussion addresses the weight of eyewitness testimony, investigates family involvement, and explores the intricacies surrounding the crime scenes. As the conversation unfolds, questions on credibility, potential oversights, and inherent challenges in piecing together a decade-long puzzle emerge. Tony Brueski initiates the dialogue, referencing John Ray, the attorney for some of the Gilgo Beach victims and for the Heuermann family. Ray has been explicit about his concerns regarding the Heuermann family, especially Asa Ellerup, suggesting a closer investigation into their potential involvement. Ray posits that this might be a "large criminal enterprise" that Heuermann is a part of. However, the attorney representing the Heuermann family was quick to dismiss these allegations, viewing them as a mere "thirst for the spotlight." Navigating through past events, Brueski delves into the era predating Heuermann's involvement, focusing on the unsolved mystery of the Gilgo Beach victims. The debate centers on whether it's prudent to cast a wider net of suspicion that includes Asa Ellerup and other close acquaintances of Heuermann. Coffindaffer chimes in with her seasoned perspective, affirming the need for a thorough investigation. "They would be remiss not to," she asserts, emphasizing that the authorities would undoubtedly "take a look at anyone and everyone that could have been complicit." The speculation surrounding the crimes possibly occurring at Heuermann's residence becomes another focal point of their conversation. While some argue for this theory, citing its simplicity, Coffindaffer reminds listeners that there's no confirmation either way. If the crimes did happen within that household, the implications would be dire. Yet, in the absence of concrete evidence, she articulates the need to explore all possible scenarios. Shifting gears, Brueski introduces another layer of intrigue with the Julia Ann Bean case in South Carolina. A statement from Bean's daughter, upon seeing Heuermann's photograph, asserted that he was the last man she saw with her mother. The reliability of such eyewitness testimonies becomes a topic of contention. Coffindaffer elaborates, "Literally, the least reliable information in conducting a case is eyewitness testimony." While acknowledging Heuermann's distinctive appearance could bolster the credibility of such claims, she reiterates the paramount importance of independent corroboration. The broader narrative from this "Hidden Killers" episode encapsulates the challenges and intricacies inherent in high-profile investigations. Coffindaffer's insights underscore the need for meticulous scrutiny, a balanced approach, and the value of corroboration in weaving together a credible narrative. As the Rex Heuermann case continues to unravel, audiences and investigators alike are left grappling with the complexities of discerning truth amidst a sea of conjectures.
