We are under spiritual attack. Are you prepared for war?

By:


It’s time to wake up and face the truth. We are under attack, but I am not talking physical combat here. We are in the midst of a spiritual warfare. Wasting your days in front of the TV, or at the hand of physical and mental temptations – you are becoming more and more ill-equipped, unprepared, or simply not aware of what we’re up against. It’s easy to miss the things we can’t physically see, but it’s not ok to maintain a willful ignorance. If you don’t open your eyes soon, this will be your greatest downfall.

Essentially, there are 5 signs that show we are under spiritual attack right now:

  1. Sudden or extreme onslaught of various troubles, losses, and trials
  2. Attacks of physical danger, illness, life-threatening loss
  3. Increased temptation and luring towards sin or wrong choices
  4. Feelings of overwhelming despair, darkness, and fear
  5. Deep confusion, feelings of condemnation and guilt, dulled spiritual awareness

Between COVID, race riots, extreme natural disasters and a plethora of other things striking our nation, the signs are all there. As a whole, we are facing nation wide disparity. Businesses are shutting down and people are losing their jobs left and right with nowhere to turn. Mass amounts of people are dying due the global pandemic, not to mention the people dying at the hands of idiots that can’t seem to understand that every human life holds value. Media outlets are using propaganda and widespread manipulation tactics to cause chaos and pit the world against one another. Wildfires, climate change, killer bees, dust bowls, the list goes on and on.

Needless to say, there is a growing sense of fear in the air, but it’s time to let go of fear and allow God to protect us all. No longer shall we be subject to mind manipulation and mental anguish. No longer shall we direct our energy into picking fights with one another. This is a battle that we cannot fight with our hands. We must sharpen our minds and strengthen our spiritual connection. We must reach a point of true enlightenment.

At this point, you may be asking yourself, “what is it that I can do to win this battle?”

  1. First and foremost you must pray! You can’t win in spiritual warfare without a relationship with God. God invites us all to build a relationship with him, but it is up to you to openly seek it.
  2. You must educate yourself. This will help you be able to separate fact from fiction and protects you from falling victim to mental manipulation. There is power in knowledge.
  3. Limit your media consumption. Media outlets use propaganda to mislead you into making poor decisions. They are not there to inform you of what’s real, but they aim to control your mind and limit your way of thinking.
  4. Meditate. This will allow you to let go of the chaos of the outside world and become more in-tune with what’s within. This is a way to detach from the world, strengthen your soul and detox yourself of all the negativity that is constantly poured into you.

It’s time to let go of the hostility towards each other and realize the real enemy at hand here is greater than any physical being. Let’s look beyond what is set before our eyes and understand that spiritual warfare is a battle that we must fight with a different approach. Rejuvenate your mind and soul and prepare to protect ourselves at all cost. This is your future at stake here, it is up to you to decide whether or not you are ready to take back control.

So ask yourself, are you prepared to fight war?

If you’re not sure what you can do, start by gaining knowledge!

Ripping Off the Band-Aid: Why Payment Protection Programs are Not Good in The Long Term

By:


With speculation that another grand wave of COVID will strike again by fall, business owners and entrepreneurs should be stirring up a plan on how to handle it. When COVID originally swept the nation, it came as a surprise for most and suddenly caused major disruption for nearly everyone as a result of nation-wide stay at home orders. And even as things slowly begin to open back up, it will be awhile before we re-establish a sense of normalcy. That being said, if a second spike in COVID rates come about and the nation shuts down once again, you should not be caught off guard. Now is the time to prepare and set up your course of action.

If your business has survived up until this point, it is not just by chance. It is because you have a strong ability to adapt and adjust. However, one of the hardest parts of adapting has been finding funding sources that would allow you to press forward during these high pressure times. One of the first sources that many businesses turned to was obviously the government and they responded by establishing Payment Protection Programs aka PPP’s. While in theory this sounded like a good plan, when put into action it’s not going to turn out well for many of the small businesses and entrepreneurs out there.

Let me explain why.

For starters, a lot of the funds dedicated to the PPP were not distributed to the people who needed it the most. It comes as no surprise that a lot of the funds went to big corporations that already have investors and money in reserves. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of small businesses have had to close their doors because the government either left them with empty promises or the assistance came way too late. And even if you were able to receive PPP funding, the danger doesn’t stop there.

There are millions of small businesses still at risk.

As I have watched Congress scramble to get working capital to businesses across America, it’s clear to me that we’re now seeing a gigantic exercise in bridge lending. For those of you who don’t know, bridge lending is putting money into a company in an attempt to “Bridge” the otherwise normally healthy company into a time in the future when they are financially self-sustaining. In venture capital, start-up companies routinely commit to short-term loans that bridge their negative cash flow into a larger equity financing (i.e., “permanent capital”).

However, lending to an ENTIRE economy of normally healthy, mainstream businesses isn’t normal. It’s a new drill for our government and for the private investment community, both institutional and HNW retail investors. This is why it has come with so many kinks along the way. Usually evaluating an investment, in particular, a bridge loan, is all about expectations and the data supporting those expectations. Sometimes you are right (generating investment income) and sometimes you’re wrong (you lose on the investment).

However, with COVID, there are so many unknowns, that investors have to shift their thinking a bit. There needs to be talks about bridge lending or other investment structures that give businesses a sufficiently long window to either A) return to their “old normal” (pre-2020) or
B) find their “new normal.” My guess is that it will take 2 years or more to find financial equilibrium, considering the disruption to supply-chains that has occurred.

With the PPP, there just isn’t enough time for businesses to regain their footing. Yes, it is a necessary band-aid. But, in two months, one of the following will have happened:

  1. A very high level of small business bankruptcies
  2. Another massive PPP-like infusion has to be established
  3. Longer-term loan and equity investments have to be put in place.

The problem with band-aid solutions is that eventually the band-aid has to come off and in this case the wounds will not be healed when that happens. So essentially it all boils down to one question… do we want to remain dependent on these government “solutions?”

Personally, I’d rather have individual investors determine which companies survive COVID through thoughtful, case-by-case investment analysis, rather than the government, provide an ongoing “Get out of Jail Card” for all. While the government is making an effort to help, their methods are actually doing more harm than anything. Leaving the small business financial aid in the hands of investors who know the best ways to efficiently funnel money into a company, is much more useful. It’s tough, but it’s the only way to beat the odds – it’s why capitalism works.

Negative Conflict

By:


Our nation has been staring adversity straight in the eye, especially over the past few months. I have to break it to you, we are at war. It is a war between those who create wealth and those who believe they have some sort of divine mandate to appropriate wealth. They don’t have such an authoritative command. It’s a war unlike any other the world has ever seen. Why? Because instead of guns and bombs, most of the weaponry has come in the form of mind manipulation and a push for globalist policy. However, as financial warriors, it is important for us to hold strong. Although the weight of the current state of the world is heavy on our shoulders, it is our duty to bring a sense of positivity to help balance out all the negativity that has recently been thrown our way. It’s time to look deep within ourselves and rid our lives of negativity at its core so that we can assure we are at our strongest. If more people spent time solving the internal issues disrupting their lives, they wouldn’t have to project it onto the rest of the world. While there are a plethora of ways to detox your life of negativity, here are a couple things to consider that you may not have thought of before.

Spiritual Warfare

Look at the world around us. We’re faced with global pandemic, disgusting acts of injustice, destruction and utter manipulation. God, help us! It’s clear we are fighting a spiritual war right now and wasting your days in front of the TV, or wasting away at the hand of physical and mental temptations is debilitating. There are many of us becoming more and more ill-equipped, unprepared, or simply not aware of what we’re up against, or who the real enemy even is. When under spiritual attack, clarity can be hard to come by because the immediate outcome is often beyond your control. That’s why it’s important to rid negativity in your life by holding strong on the things you can control like keeping your moral values and resisting temptation. When your body and mind and soul are open and ready to receive, you will triumph.

Mind the Company You Keep

The people around you have a significant impact over your life whether you realize it or not. This is why you want to surround yourself with people that are optimistic and hold similar values. Just as important as having good connections is, I avoid, like the plague, negative people who emanate negative vibes. When your closest associates harbor negativity, it is almost certain to project off on to you. You have to watch out for the people who try to manipulate you, expect you to prioritize them but they don’t return the favor, and those that can’t and won’t apologize. Don’t be afraid to rid your circle of the negative people no matter who they are, family and friends included. Besides, those who think more in terms of turning a negative outcome into a positive potential have a much better chance of riding out the rough times. Most importantly, if you find that you are the negative friend in the circle, take the time to correct this. Push yourself to have a more optimistic outlook on life even in the times where things feel hopeless. Your mindset is a powerful tool, therefore use it to the best of your abilities to create positive change.

Again, there are so many different ways to rid your life of negativity, but I wanted to leave you with these two trains of thought so that you really do some deep soul searching. We have to seek answers internally in order to move the negative vibes out and insert a positive force. To find peace in the world, we must first find it within ourselves. It is important to hold strong and not allow the negativity of the world to cloud your vision. Never forget that you are on a mission to achieve the ultimate goal of freedom and that your purpose is divine. No one has the right to take that from you, especially without a fight. Whether you believe it or not, you are in a battlefield. You are in warfare. How you choose to fight, and on which side, is totally up to you. Just know that now is the time to stand up and put up a fight.

The New Normal

By:


The new normal of business is being written as we speak. What the new normal will look like across multiple industries as business re-opens following the COVID-19 pandemic.

Covid-19 has forced business owners to face something I have been trying to tell you people for some time now: In reality, success has very little to do with the idea and more about the team, execution, persistence, timing, and how good one is at adapting the business along the way. Adaptability really being key in this case. Businesses all over have had to make significant changes to keep their businesses alive and well. Many of these changes will become the “new normal” in their enterprises such as having a strong digital presence, working from home and taking precautions just in case a pandemic like this ever happens again. The long term effects of how people do business following Covid-19 actually have potential to benefit companies in the long run and will expand their business practices after this pandemic ends.

Internet Presence

One thing the Coronavirus has exposed for a lot of business owners is the importance of having a strong internet presence. Over time, Business Internet entities have become increasingly popular because they let you scale more quickly by creating, chasing, and closing longer and lower ROI opportunities. And for those who are not strictly internet-based companies, it allows for them to extend their reach and have better communication with a wide range of customers. However, we see now more than ever just how beneficial technology has been. It’s become a saving grace amidst this time of social distancing and has allowed opportunities for everything from schools, stores and even restaurants to proceed with their operations without customers having to physically be there. These technological advances aren’t just academic exercises. They have a direct impact on business, and an entrepreneur needs to understand how to harness those benefits. For instance, even with businesses temporarily closed, a founder has no excuse not to be in continuous communication with their customers. The best customers don’t just use your product or service. They are fans, which means they will remain loyal and follow your business as it grows even during trying times. Social media and email lists provide you with the opportunity to stay relevant on the minds of your customers even if you are unable to provide your services right now. On the flip side, with social media so prevalent in our society, it’s easy to hear what your customers are saying. If you want to know what it is that your business could be doing to adjust and better serve your customers, just ask; then make sure you follow through. While there are businesses that have been slow to hop on the digital train, Covid-19 has forced many of them to find a technological presence. If they’re smart, most of them will continue on with building their internet presence even when this pandemic ends.

WFH

The internet hasn’t just been good for keeping contact for customers, but also implementing social distancing practice for work as well. Even prior to the Covid pandemic, many entrepreneurs swore by the virtual office, which is where you hire people who work for you remotely via the Internet. So you might have an executive assistant in Michigan, a sales rep in Chicago, and you are based in New York. While this method has it’s share of shortcomings, if implemented in the right manner by the right type of business, it can be quite successful. Social distancing orders have allowed us to see just how effective this option can be, so much so, that the work from home policies that many companies have adopted at this time will increasingly become normalized moving forward. For instance, Twitter CEO recently announced that their employees will have the option to work from home indefinitely. Nationwide is another company that has also taken a liking to the virtual office model with plans of exiting their remaining offices by November of this year. While it’s great to have the means to work from home when necessary, it does come with some challenges and it’s not a good fit for every company. It particularly works well for some online companies, but most businesses need their employees present or at least nearby. You need to have oversight, and that’s very difficult to do when someone is thousands of miles away. So even if you do decide to shift into the work from home model, I suggest that you hire locally at least in the beginning.

Proceed with Precaution

Covid-19 has caused a lot of stress and strain on businesses in such a short amount of time. The problem is that most businesses didn’t see this coming, thus they were not well prepared for a disaster of this magnitude. Moving forward, many businesses owners have plans of taking precautions just in case something like this happens again. Barclays is among many other businesses that have plans of implementing changes as a health precaution, exclaiming that the idea of putting thousands of people in an office is a thing of the past. While they do plan on reopening offices and won’t switch to a fully virtual office method, they have no intentions of packing their offices with people by any means. They along with may others will opt to operate smaller office settings instead of large corporate offices. Another example is that a lot of businesses have switched over to cashless and even touchless payment methods now more so than ever. While eventually businesses will go back to accepting cash payments, touchless payment methods will stick around for the long run moving forward. Educational means will change forever as well. Yes, eventually schools will open back up and allow students back in, but many will move forward with permanently integrating online learning with a dual learning experience. Covid has also seemed to force schools hands in solving a problem that had been ignored for quite sometime which is overcrowded classrooms. Most schools are implementing smaller class sizes to allow room for social distancing per the guidelines for their reopening.

Going forward from here, things will never return back to exactly how they were before. For the most part, the changes that will come out of this have some good to them. Businesses have had to learn to adapt to massive changes in such a short amount of time out of pure survival mode, but many have found that these new implementations have actually opened doors of revenue for them. In the future, businesses will work to strike a good balance between returning to their old operations and integrating their new ways of business. Covid-19 has taught businesses that the only constant in business is change and that businesses will be quick to fail if the founder lacks persistence, the skill to quickly adapt to changing circumstances, or the ability to see around corners and think ahead. Therefore, if you are to take anything from this situation, it should be that adaptability needs to be your new normal.

Wake Up America: An Attempt To Push Out Capitalism

By:


Going into this year, if someone were to tell you that you’d lose your job or your business would be shut down, you’d be sentenced to isolation within your home and you’d be left struggling to find a way to support your family, all under the enforcement of martial law, you’d probably think it was a sick joke. However, we’re 5 months into the year and what sounds like some sort of twisted movie, the plot has become a reality for millions of people across the country.

There’s no denying that COVID-19 is a serious matter and there are people who are high risk like the elderly and people with compromised immune systems. But perhaps, the biggest threat to everyone else is the socialist and anti-Trump agenda that Democrats are attempting to push upon us. They’ve flooded the media in an attempt to instill fear in the public and forced unconstitutional orders on citizens disguised as measures of protection. They’ve mandated people to stop working and small businesses to shut down and pacified those effected with empty promises to supplant funds. They’ve attempted to upset the economy and take control of our daily lives, yet used the global pandemic as a distraction to cover their tracks. Make no mistake about it; money is first and foremost about freedom. If you take control of people’s access to money, you take away their freedom.

However, their plans of tyranny are slowly becoming unraveled as people can start to see through the wool they tried to pull before our eyes. People are beginning to recognize that this is nothing more than an attempt to push out capitalism in the US and implement a socialist construct. And for those of you who have yet to recognize what’s happening, you have to wake up! Learn to think for yourself and stop allowing people to spoon feed you bullshit.

States have been pushing unlawful orders upon their citizens backed by threats of fines, jail time and even the deployment of the National Guard in extreme cases. What they failed to let everyone know is that these orders are merely suggestions that have not been through the legislative processes to effectively make them law. Not mention, they would never hold up in the Supreme Court as many of the orders are direct violations of our constitutional rights. These orders have caused millions of people to lose their jobs (unemployment rates haven’t been this high since the Great Depression) and millions of small businesses to close (possibly permanently). This is the equivalent to ripping out the spinal cord of our economy. One of the great trends we’ve been witnessing since 2010 has been what you might call the democratization of entrepreneurship. This is where entrepreneurs don’t care about pedigree. Entrepreneurial communities are networks, not hierarchies. Openness, the free flow of information, the lack of community gatekeepers, and entrepreneurs as leaders are hallmarks of these networks. As a result, the fundamental tenants that underpin these networks is a decreased emphasis on pedigree, background, and connections. However, the economic reset that the democrats are trying to force upon us has the potential to wipe this philosophy out. These entrepreneurial networks are breaking down because small businesses are having to close left and right. Since most of the entrepreneurs have bootstrapped their way to success, they don’t have mommy and daddy to fall back on when their business is mandated to close. They don’t have investors kissing their ass and throwing them money as a sales tank.  And do you think the big corps that are progressively doing well in this atmosphere is passing along info that could potentially save these small businesses? Absolutely not! Therefore, the entrepreneurs that are most likely to overcome adversity and find success during this time are the ones with high pedigree and powerhouse connections.

Stripping the country of capitalism is just a part of the socialist agenda. The other part is gaining more control over the people. They disguise this as these grand gestures of government assistance. In this instance, it’s been a lot of half-ass promises of relief checks mailed to citizens and forgiven loans granted to businesses. But as we watch this play out, we can clearly see how these government-funded systems are breaking down. Millions of people have lost their jobs and have no way of bringing in income to support their families. They’ve turned to their state government for unemployment assistance. If you thought the process was going to be quick and painless, think again. Over half of the people who’ve filed claims still haven’t received their benefits and of those who have, many are not receiving nearly as much as they were promised to begin with. And for many of those households waiting for UE benefits, that oh so sacred stimulus check could barely take care of mortgage or rent payments, let alone pay for utilities, supplies, and groceries. Not to mention, there are still many people who haven’t received a stimulus check at all. On the flip side, small businesses are ready to open back up and give people the opportunity to earn income once again, but are struggling to survive themselves. Near the beginning of this, they were met with promises of PPP and disaster loans to help sustain their businesses and prevent layoffs. That was short-lived. By mid-April, the 370 billion dollars in funding set aside for small businesses had run out. And it’s to no surprise that hundreds of millions of dollars had gone to large, publicly-traded corporations instead, leaving the “little guys” to fend for themselves. So even as orders lift, many of these small businesses will be closed forever.

However, since people have began to step up and call out these left-winged socialist on their bullshit, we’re seeing the opportunity for capitalism to prevail once again. People have began to see that the best way to survive what has now transitioned from a health pandemic to a financial crisis is to fend for themselves instead of relying on the government. Workers are protesting to get back to work and many businesses are eager to re-open. Their cries aren’t going unheard. President Trump has done a great job of outlining guidelines so that states can begin to re-open, giving them the opportunity to restart the economy while also keeping their citizens safe. States are beginning to open back up in phases, allowing for small businesses to take the necessary steps to regain their financial footing and allowing workers to get their jobs back. Ending the lock-down is merely the first step to rebuilding after a time of great disparity. Let’s be clear, nobody is talking about going back to exactly where we were. However, the point is to move forward and empty promises and vague guidelines won’t get the job done.

It’s time for action.
