Special Announcement #1

I'm leaving this special announcement up for one more issue. After this issue I will move this info to the last paragraph of every update.

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 the re-subscribe 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:

Today's quotes

Let us start today with a great quote submitted by Don S.:

"We need men who can dream of things that never were."
-- John F. Kennedy

And I love this one, it is an absolutely true story. This was sent to me by Dr. David:

In Monday’s Jeopardy!, Philadelphia-based ride-share driver Ryan Long’s winning streak concluded after notching 16 consecutive victories and pocketing $299,400 in earnings. He lost out to Eric Ahasic, a meteorologist from Minneapolis.

Following his loss, Long posted a lengthy statement on Twitter in which he thanked “everybody who watched and supported me,” before adding, “Sometimes it seems like society puts you in a box, and you are classified as a certain thing with a certain destiny, even though you may feel differently inside. For the longest time, I didn’t believe that a person could really break out of that box. But I feel like this thing that just happened is proof that you can.

“Trust yourself, hold on to your dreams,” he continued. “Take your shot, and don’t let anybody tell you you can’t do this or that, or you should be doing things a certain way. As my grandmom would’ve said, never let anybody steal your shine.”

Long ranks No. 9 on Jeopardy!‘s Leaderboard of Legends Consecutive Games Won list.


I want to discuss with you two recordings today.


This is a recording of the kind of free work I do every Tuesday and have now for 14 years now. I'm sending it to you just in case you want to get to know me just a little better.

On this recording I removed the one link where I did mention a network marketing program I'm involved in. I removed it just so you and everyone realizes I'm not in the database raiding business. And it would not be fair to me to recruit people away from other hard working supporters of "our deal."

As a matter of fact on this recording/ training session, I made reference to a site where I post all my training recordings and videos. On that site I additionally took the extraordinary measure of removing the free subscribe link, again, just to prove once and for all, it's all about integrity in marketing.

There are three sections to this training session.

They are:
1. I offer my live attendees only, free leads and I do this most Tuesdays

2. I discuss somewhat at length the FTC's promulgated Business Opportunity Rule 2011 and how the first 58 pages justify the Federal Trade Commissions reason for not including the network marketing industry in their industry killing new rule. This of course in addition to discussing the impact of this particular rule / law.

And I presented this information to my live attendees to demonstrate how our Federal Govt has via this law legitimized the network marketing industry. So when they speak to their prospects they can easily claim even our government recognizes the legality of the network marketing / MLM industry.

3. Finally, and the main course, I continue with Part B of Self-Confidence. Why we must have it, and how many areas of your life are impacted by it. How you may have lost it, etc., etc.

Anyways, that is the jist of it, and it's only purpose is to let you have the opportunity if you would like to have a better sense of who I am and what I do, through these sessions which I call, "How To Be A Better Me." 
Here's the recording link

The next recording, remember I promised to discuss two, is this...

Before next Wednesday I am hosting a very small teleconference with only a handful of participants that will no doubt ask me some tough questions about 'our deal.'  I will record this meeting and it will be in next Wednesday's update.

Again, another opportunity to hear from me live, learn things about our deal probably going back to the very beginning, and hopefully walk away with a better sense of everything.

Web 3.0 / Metaverse

Ivan sent me this link to an article published by Forbes, dealing with the enormity of Metaverse.

As you know, just one of the seller's companies is involved in this and in a very substantial way.

I think just this article alone will give you a far better sense of just one aspect of what you are involved in.

Our deal

Not a lot new today since Wednesday, which often happens. So today please allow me to clarify a thing or two.

Our seller is very much aware and really feels the pressure of getting this project done. He and my partner, Garry, discussed it last night and again this morning. What I'm talking about of course is the NFT / Collateral / Refund program.

It all ties together due to our seller's schedule and the fact that he is subject to the schedule of his programmer and his lawyer, he fully admitted he is running behind schedule on completion of this important project.

However he did say just this morning he expects to have it all done by the end of this month.

There is an age old adage that goes like this:
He Who Has The Money Makes The Rules.

So this is the clarification I referred to....

When this project is completed, any naysayer or anyone  who wants a refund, and completely not partially, but completely out of our deal, will need to sign via Docusign an agreement prepared by the lawyers which will basically state they will not divulge under any circumstances any details of this project or make any remarks of any kind about it.

All of this must happen first and here's why:

All of our buyers own publicly traded companies. And when this deal crosses the finish line all of the companies involved in the seller's umbrella, and all of the buyers names will be a public record.

The buyer's, the bankers, and the lawyers, are all aware of some negative PR online about this deal. Hence this is their way of making certain that when they take ownership they do not take it along with the PR negative baggage that may or may not continue.

Who knows what people will say about the buyers or about the companies, even after a closing, who knows?

So, he who has the money makes the rules.  It is all about legalities, protecting privacy, and protecting sensitive information whether based on conjecture or fact, makes no difference.

About the meeting in Hawaii last week?

Yes, the seller was there and yes, he met with a number of people yet primarily with two of the buyers. Their discussions where mostly but not entirely relative to this refund program. It's logistics, it's legalities, it's implementation, and so on.

Sorry, we have to wait it out.

I do not make the rules, I just share what is going on, and I continue to do it despite the challenges in doing so.

By the way, you might just learn something about self-confidence if you are inclined to 'get to know me' a bit better by listening to the recording I included above.

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.
