Your Health!

One of the top reasons most people lie awake at night is because of their own health or a family member’s health. Hippocrates said “All health begins in your gut”. If your commitment for 2024 is improving your health, this is the book that will help you reach optimum health.


Book Review: Magnetic Marketing by DanS. Kennedy

Magnetic Marketing is a radical, dramatically different sea-change in the way new customers, clients, patients, or prospects are attracted and in the way products, services, businesses, and practices are advertised. It is a “change movement” that has established itself in over 136 different niches, business categories, industries, and professions, but is still also a “best kept secret” – its practitioners are in a “secret society”.

It – and only it – offers real protection from commoditization, Amazon-ization, price and profit destruction. It is soundly based on well-proven strategies dating from the turn of the century to the present. No academic theories, no vague “ideas”, no fads. No BS! Discover the makings of a system for your business’ sustainability and growth you can rely on. It is introduced to you in this important and timely book.

You have made a wise decision obtaining it. Bolt the door, bring out the device, and get started.

Dan Kennedy is now teamed up with RussellBrunson , author of Marletomg Secrets.


Mass Texting for You to Become More Effective!

If you fail to stay in touch with your team, constituents, or prospects, someone from another organization will! send them an occasional text and share information of value. If you use your phone, you keep getting voice mail; if you use US Mail and it takes forever unless you use FedEx or UPS that is expensive; if you use Email you get an open rate of 1 out of 17 (5.8 %), the others never open your emails or see your content.
So, the answer is Mass Texting.

Mass Texting with photos, 1,000-character messages (instead of 140 characters), unlimited contacts, unlimited chats, unlimited file attachments, smart contact importer, archiving, seeing who downloads your files, and a phone number for text messaging, voicemail drops, call forwarding and outbound calling. Get 1,000 texts for $30 a month (that’s $.03 a text). Studies show 90% of your text messages are opened within 5 minutes. Go to today!


Have a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous, and Safe Week!
