 Special Announcement

It seems our old mailing platform Getresponse did not accurately send all of our data to us. I realize some people are not receiving the notification the update is ready because of this. Or, it may be delivered into your spam/junk folder so you may need to check there, for subject line starting "Latest Info".

I expect next Wednesday I will have a re-optin form, which I will post here also for anyone not receiving email notices. I have answered a couple hundred people and advised them to simply see these updates every Wednesday and Friday at 3:00pm Eastern or after at, nevertheless the opportunity to change an email address or add an email address will be ready in a few days and I'll let you know.

Today's quotes

First, one great quote, from the quote-master Jeff T.:
Forever Grateful

And here's another excellent quote, sent to me from Becky W.:

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
-- Martin Luther King, Jr.

My apologies / misunderstanding

On Wednesday I showed you an example of a response I sent to a 'naysayer.'  This email response was to demonstrate to you the lengths to which I will go to personally meet with any of these people, almost always people who have not been with us long enough to fully understand how all the pieces work together especially going back to day one. The handful of people who are hurting us all.

By the way, not one of these naysayers has taken me up on this invite, just ask yourself, 'why not?'.

Unfortunately, a number of my loan partners mistook that sample email as "their invitation" to visit with me.

I've had about 30 such requests.

As much as I would very much enjoy meeting every single loan partner, which I do truly expect to do in Vegas and hopefully sooner rather than later, I simply cannot take the time for all of these meetings.

I work on our big deal every single day without drawing a dime in salary for it. I also work on my other businesses.

If I were to meet individually with each of these wonderful loan partners... coordinate their stay and logistics, spend a day or any time, really, explaining the inner workings, going out for dinner, etc., I would be a month behind in keeping everyone updated, and progression on my own businesses would suffer.

Sure it would be simple to say yes to one or two, but then how do I say no to the other 28 or so? It just wouldn't be right. So I apologize for this misunderstanding. 

And I am looking forward to meeting you, and each of these individuals, and all my supportive partners together in Vegas!

Phone calls

Please, Please PLEASE! 

If you wish to speak with me send me an email first to:
<mtg @> (without the spaces),
explaining what you wish to talk about, and I will call you back or, if more efficient, will reply by email. Please use subject line: Phone call. Please include your name, phone number, and the subject matter you wish to cover.

You simply would not believe it, it doesn't matter what time I begin my day or what time I end my day, I just simply cannot keep up with everything going on.  I cannot drop what I am working on, or interrupt an important call to take another.

Emailing me first gives me the opportunity to call you when I am not involved in the middle of another project, and lessens the constant interruptions that distract my focus. I need your help and understanding, and I thank you.  BTW, 3 calls just while preparing this update.

Our deal

I touched on this somewhat in our last update, however, I wanted to provide a little more detail for you today.

There is a reason I have never given you all of the companies the seller owns which are involved in our deal. The number one primary reason is this: It is part of my non-disclosure agreement to not divulge these details.  This is a detail going way back to the very beginning, and something required by the buyers.

Remember, all of these buyers own publicly traded companies, and various regulations under which public companies operate, they simply cannot make known certain intentions without a procedure of advanced filings.

Next, as you can imagine the legal work and programming work required to set up, then execute, the collateral program which ties directly into the buyout/refund program, which of course will include the video explaining it all, takes an enormous amount of time and resources from very busy lawyers. 

Remember, for the 6th time now...  : ) 
The collateral all loan partners will receive has absolutely nothing to do with how partners will be paid after closing.  Which of course will be in real dollars.  Anyway, I am hopeful to have from our seller these details soon.  However, he too is being pulled in 100 different directions especially like this:

Yesterday morning the head honchos placed an emergency call to him informing him his presence was required for a meeting with the bankers in Hawaii.  He boarded the next available flight and arrived there sometime late yesterday.

I share this with you so you realize...
Our project is NOT on hold,
Our project is NOT being ignored,
In fact, our project is being worked on every day, day in and day out, by the veritable army of people involved.

I thought it important for you to realize everything is continuing to move forward.

About these updates

Please allow me to keep you up to date with what I CAN tell you as things develop, through these updates (again, meaning please no calls or emails about this update or this deal).

We as a group of like minded and generous people, coming together for a common goal, can and will change the world forever in ways we cannot even imagine today.   -- Mike G.

Finally, my future epitaph, hopefully a long time away:
He Did The Best He Could To Be The Best He Could.


Mike G.
