Special Announcements

Special Announcement #1

If you have not been receiving notices of the updates being available at this site, please resubscribe to receive them at this link

If you are a group leader you may have people who are not aware every Wednesday and Friday by about 3:00pm Eastern updates are posted at this site, so you may want to distribute this link above.

We think when the data was transferred from our old email mailing provider to our own system some email addresses "may" not have been sent. Also, because of this change, these email notices may be ending up in your spam/junk folder and you'll need to white list again.

Also, it's possible and may be blocking our "notices of updates" with the subject line, "Latest Info" so just to be on the safe side please use an alternate email address if possible.

Otherwise, just visit this site on Wednesday's and Friday's after 3:00pm Eastern:

Special Announcement #2:

I think you know how I like to keep special opportunities 'in the family' so to speak. So...

I may and I stress the word 'may' have a need for a CFP (Certified Financial Planner) with a Series 6 License. 

The reason I'm not sure just yet is I'm awaiting our attorney's opinion on this matter, meaning if we need to have a Series 6 licensee endorse our copy, for a fee of course, for our A.I. trading software. 

If you know of someone who has the qualifications and may have an interest in a quick buck and possibly ongoing revenue stream, have them send me an email with the subject line "CFP / Series 6" with their name and phone number to this email address: <mtg @> (without the spaces).

Keep building and let the rain do the talking.

Fun / interesting

I was delighted to learn just this week about Vicki C.

She has been a long standing loan partner. In a discussion with our seller he told me he was quite impressed with her, her enthusiasm for what we are doing, and he said she is sharp, excited, and energetic.  Turns out she is now part of our seller's team for attending various trade shows. Congrats Vicki!

Our deal

Some people think my updates are too much 'filler.'  As I have said before, if anyone feels that way all they need to do is skip to this section: "Our deal" and stop complaining.
   : )

A few things to cover so let's get started with this item first:

As you know our seller recently did a "P.R. video" about just one of the companies.  And after watching that public relations video Ivan sent me this link.  Ivan's comments were, it's an excellent video explaining Metaverse in an exciting and understandable non-techy way.

I think you should watch it. You are part of this world now. And this technology all by itself is not only changing the internet, it will change the way business is done.  Watch the video, you will see what I mean.

About the P.R. video, on it the seller makes reference to the value of the company, being promoted on the video, three years or so down the road. Unfortunately some viewers took that to mean we would not have a sales / closing until then. Nonsense!

Our seller on the video, without making a hard pitch, was also inviting people, remember it was not directed to the 'Mike G' group - to be part of just this one company. So know this: companies are bought and sold all the time while keeping and preserving stakeholder positions.

So let me re-state it this way: This company, when ownership transfers, will transfer without the need to buy out any existing stakeholders, of which I am told will only be a few.  'Nuff said.

I recently heard a new rumor (surprise, surprise!) someone posted online that we would be closing our deal the 18th of June.

I can only say whoever posted that comment has a keen sense of what is going on behind the scenes, however their timing is off. 

Let me explain...

It's true that their is an awful lot going on right now on several fronts.

The NFT / tokenzation project is all part of the collateral / refund project. Remember?

It is an enormous undertaking, these tech and programming pieces need to be firmly in place before the seller gives me a form to give you for anyone who 'wants out' of the deal.

Please remember this:

No refund was ever offered for any loan made for "our deal."

This has all come about in no small measure, to my urgings.

So when it's finished, and I hope soon, people who want all - no partials but all - of their money back, will be able to place their request.

Also to remind you the purposes for all of this which are absolutely positively in progress, is this:

One, to prove once and for all this deal is in fact legit.

Two, this proof plus refunding any naysayers their loan dollars will also be accomplished.

I also think it's important you know the bankers, the buyers, and the lawyers, are all absolutely in concurrence and desirous to finalize the refund program and they wish to do so as soon as possible.

Personally I think, and this is just my opinion, the lawyers want to make certain there are no legal issues following the closing because of naysayer activity.

Makes sense. Remember the lawyers are representing the buyers and no one wants to deal with 'after the fact' complaints. Because of this when that refund form goes up, you will see very specific legalese language on it preventing and barring those who receive their refund from making any derrogative remarks about the deal, anyone connected with the deal, and well, you get the idea.

About a closing date:

The last three times I have mentioned a closing date I was ALWAYS very careful to use words like EXPECTED, ANTICIPATED, TARGET DATE, etc. 

Yet there are those who, for whatever reason, somehow thought I was guaranteeing a closing on those dates where I use those words, and even more puzzling to me is why some would think I have any control over a closing date.

If it were up to me we would close tomorrow.  : )

It's not.

But because of those 'projected dates' I have mentioned in the past, and the resulting 'tar & feathering' I got because it didn't happen, I will NOT EVER give a closing date again.

That said, I will say this..

I know it's all hands on deck time. I know what needs to be done - like the collateral project mentioned above.

And like the person who started the 'closing on the 18th rumor' I too am confident of a closing in the near future.  And I am going to be very careful here, however I have a sense it will happen fairly soon after all the refunders legally sign off on this deal.

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.
