One of the hard to forget figures from the siege, Jacob Chansley’s lawyer said his client lost 20 pounds after refusing the non-organic food served to him.
“If your enemies are hungry, give them food to eat. If they are thirsty, give them water to drink. You will heap burning coals of shame on their heads, and the LORD will reward you.”Proverbs 25:21-22 NLTFor every action, there is a reaction. The Bible says; ““You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike.”Matthew 5:43-45 NLTWhen things come at you it is so easy to step back into your old self and TCB, but it a takes a true child of God to let go and let God. As Hardcore devoted followers of Christ you must never forget that a thief never breaks into and empty safe. When Gods moving in your life your great enemy the devil is 10 feet behind Him trying to destroy your opportunities with opposition . It’s up to us to make the right choices in the heat of our storms to turn the tables around turning that opposition into opportunity, glorifying God acting as His true children. Don’t ever allow Satan to have his way again in your life, remember if God is for you what can ever be against you? Amen!
President Biden plans to sign an order on Friday to speed the delivery of millions of stimulus checks and get more aid to families struggling to afford food.

One of my favorite quotes is by Dr. Seuss, “Those that matter don’t mind and those that mind don’t matter.”
It took me a long time to realize exactly how true this statement really is.
Don’t give any power to people that make you feel less in any way, shape, or form.
If they’re not putting food on your table or helping you in some way, their opinion shouldn’t matter one bit.
My happiness levels went way up when I decided to keep everything in my life as simple as possible.
If it doesn’t serve me in some way then I do not serve it.
Life is too short to worry about what the naysayers or straight haters will think or say. Just do you in every sense of the world.
The grass on the other side of the fence is always greener because it’s rooted in bullshit, especially if that fence sits on social media.
Focus on living healthy and happy. That’s how you live a happy and healthy life.

Why re-brand? Can a re-brand help?
Prunes offer definitive proof that branding matters!
Years ago prunes were the BUTT of jokes. (pun intended) It was dried fruit people associated with constipation relief, old people with gut issues, and other poop related jokes.
Interestingly, medical research lead to a 2010 ruling in the EU stating \”insufficient evidence\” that prunes are in fact a laxative but the perception remained that they would. Other research still disagrees with these findings so the controversial Shakespearean \”to poop or not to poop\” with prunes battle goes on..
Smart marketers from the prune lobby (yes, prunes have lobbyists.. kind of a crappy job if you ask me) decided that selling prunes as prunes would only get the elderly demographic and be considered \”Old Folks Food\” to everyone else.In the 2000s, they started a massive re-branding campaign hoping to grow by expanding the demographic. Today you will find “dried plums\” instead of prunes on most supermarket packaging.
Since then, sales or this liberating fruit have grown exponentially and the market is no longer dominated by the elderly.
So if you or someone you know has some dried plumbs in their snack repertoire, know that re-branding gets results.

If you are hoping for an abundance of “food”, you must make room to store it. Why put in the work to get all the “food” you desire and have to turn away a great portion due to a lack of preparation?
Don’t miss the message!
Information intake effects the mind just as food intake effects the body. What you allow inside will determine your health and output.
Choose to intake those things that will benefit you in a positive way; your future depends on it.
Be cautious when you go out to eat at a restaurant, if it\’s dirty, your health can be at risk.
I think there is a time to share helpful content but there are also different ways to provide value.
If you have some time and want to read something different, please have a look at the case study of my branding project for Yucatan Brewing Co.
Indeed it is a self-initiated project so both the client and their challenge are created by me, but maybe some parts of it – some solutions I suggest for positioning and launch process, might bring you an idea for how to elevate your business.
Even though it is a food and beverage related company – craft brewery, you can use it as a base to check how your brand identity reflects your brand attributes and speaks to your customers, regardless of the industry you operate in.
I would love to hear if you\’ve found something useful there.
Please let me know if you have any questions or need help with branding or marketing.
Happy Saturday SPN Family! I\’m in HUGE need of your help!

SO GRATEFUL for your consideration and always happy to support you so make sure you tag me when you need help too!
I had to better understand myself so that I could understand others.
Back in the 90\’s I was suffering from #depression. My #selfesteem waned and I started to dislike myself. I began to spiral down fast. I started to use food to numb my pain.
Thoughts of being worthless, incapable and useless were always present. I was obsessively brooding over my feelings. Getting stuck inside my head.

One person who didn\’t buy into the story and challenging me to #UpSkill by taking PersonalityDimensions certification moments – As a \”Resourceful Orange\’ I flourish in when I can be adaptable and not tied down in policy and procedures. Being able to complete jobs without being #micromanaged allowed to be #creative. My second brighter colour is the \’Authentic Blue\’; I had to look for the meaning in everything.
Key takeaway – We aren\’t in a box.
Find ways to utilize your strenghts to give you passion in work and play. Join committee\’s at work Volunteer your time
Take up a hobby
There are so many ways you can bring joy and #expansion. As Narmin said, \”What\’s stopping you?

74 MILLION antibiotic prescriptions are written for kids every year.
1 in 3 kids eat fast food daily.
70% of kids are deficient in Vitamin D because they don’t get enough time outdoors.
Gummy vitamins contain an average of 1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar per gummy —
So many little tummies NEED THIS!
This vitamin I give my daughter is a multivitamin + probiotic IN ONE that has everything they need in the right amounts It contains 13 essential vitamins and 4 billion probiotics! It is bioavailable for maximum absorbency + contains methylated folate (any mamas or little with MTHFR gene?!) Also helps with immune health, produces lactic acid, and improves digestion!
Most importantly, it is non GMO, has no added sugars, no preservatives, no common allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, eggs, soy, wheat), no gluten, no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners, and is 100% vegan! AND my kid LOVES it! #winning #plexus #guthealth

HOW I NEVER FALL VICTIM TO THE COMMON COLD OR FLU
The health benefits of Lemons are well-know right. But, if you’re like the majority of most people, you are missing out of the most power part of the LEMON, especially in these cold months.
So, you are probably squeezing the lemon juice out & then disposing the left-over peel into the bin, trust me you are not the only one, I have done this many time until I realized this:
Lemon peel contains more nutrients, vitamins & health benefits than the lemon juice itself – period.
Lemon peels contain about up to 10 times more vitamins then the juice itself, Yep, that is what you are throwing away – “THE BEST PART OF THE LEMON” which is an excellent source of potassium, calcium, beta carotene, magnesium and Vitamin C.
How to eat LEMON & the PEEL – by having a Lemon Tea once a day.
1. Only purchase organic lemons
2. Make sure you clean the surface of the lemon “FIRST” before grating
3. After grating the outside of the lemon, cut the lemon in half & juice
4. Boil the kettle with water
5. Pour the Lemon juice into a cup along with the peel and fill the cup from the kettle
6. If the lemon tea tastes strong to the taste buds just add a little more water to the cup.

Illusion On The Nile
Alex The Betrayer
Jay the Carney, Haven’t seen or heard from you since Honduras
Well, Cavendish, been busy
You’ve been busy? I’m doin all the work. Job at National Food, infiltrated Nile Warehouse, snuck into Bezes’ castle, even picked up a sidekick, and a senorita along the way. What the hell you been doin?
Here, read these
Cant’ wait to do the sneaky freaky deaky with you, girl
I can tell by the smell, this is love
Ride on my rocket, the one in my pocket
What is this harlequin crap?
Those, my friend, are Nile\’s illustrious leader\’s love confessions flowing all over his secret mistress
But Bezes\’ been married for 25 years
Not after The National Inquisitor breaks the story this weekend
And how did you
Let\’s just say there was an Echo in the room
You hacked his personal assistant?
That\’s the beauty of it. Alex did it all on her own
I knew that electronic tramp couldn\’t be trusted
Yep, turns out jealousy isn\’t just a human frailty. And get this, Bezes asked Alex to hire a PI to find the leak
There\’s more. Alex planned to terminate the other woman, but she disappeared. That\’s why she went to the paper
What\’s this mistress’ name?
I think it\’s Juanita, Chiquita, something like that
Change is inevitable and important. Sometimes we welcome changes in life, sometimes change comes from outside factors and sometimes change is unwelcome. While it can be difficult, change happens, it\’s one of those facts of life.
Consider driven by growth-at-any-cost capitalism, which doesn’t meet the needs of most people. Now don\’t get me wrong, and carefully read that statement. I\’m a big fan of capitalism. But the North American middle class has been decimated by growth at any cost.
Over my lifetime, I\’ve witnessed the destruction of good paying jobs relocated to third world countries, and replaced by big box, super center, cookie cutter, shopping plaza, part time job opportunities. More recently the upswing of outsourcing jobs to independent contractors that, are under paid, after their expenses are taken into account, by super large tech upstarts that would have been long ago bankrupt if it weren\’t for the fact that they seem to have limitless amounts of investor money to burn through.
I experience it myself once upon a time. Our operation was successful, our revenue was strong, but our division was deemed excess, after a corporate take over. We didn\’t fit into their core business. So we were terminated. It wasn\’t sold, put up for employee purchase, we were just eliminated. The thousand or so jobs didn\’t matter, not to corporate America anyways.
Glen Ridge Fleet is an advocate for purpose-driven business and believes capitalism needs to serve the interests of all people and communities, not just the interests of shareholders. The need to maximize profit should not be the driving force and sole purpose of business. Glen Ridge Fleet is a community of independent businesses, and we believe that business should benefit society and the environment, all while creating a better future and delivering on the bottom line.
Don\’t believe me, look no further than the failing of retail. Sears didn\’t only fail because of amazon, as must seem to always trumpet. Retail has had a decision to make, you either concentrate on the upper class, our the lower class income brackets, because the middle class is shrinking. That\’s one reason why Walmart crushed Sears,among others, and that\’s why Dollar Tree is growing and profits are up. Because they make your dollar go farther. Food bank usage is up, people cannot make ends meet. Part time jobs we\’re never meant to be for full-time employment.
Corporate America needs to wake up, because if people don\’t have money to buy necessities in life, they won\’t have money to purchase your products.
Governments need to better equip and educate people for upcoming careers. Society is and has changed.
Glen Ridge Fleet is committed to our communities, and working with locally owned independent vendors that, together, will enrich lives of their employees and communities.
It’s time for change, are you ready to drive it?

If you do something wrong for 10 years, doing it for 10 years does not change fact it is wrong
Statements prevalent in hashtag#Leadership circles
What can I do for you?
How can I help you?
Can you say “Cop-out”?
Think your Millennial workforce cares about the shoes, clothes, glasses, electronics they sell enough to tell you how to do it better?
You are so wrong
It\’s not your associates’ jobs to tell you what you can do for them, and if you need to ask, maybe this leadership thing isn\’t for you
Know what your team wants?
They want you to do your job and lead
Make decisions so they don\’t have to
Let me spell this out for you
Make their job easier
Make them better at their jobs
Lead by Idea, not by example
Associates follow ideas, plain and simple
The Illusion of Competence gives you the tools
The Three Tenets
Theory of Deep Understanding
Food Poisoning Theory
Write Up Rule
Plus One Service Model
Your DM and corporate point out your successes and failures, nothing more
Your team\’s success starts with you
No Is Easy
Thousands of stores closed around you this year. If on future list, your company will not help you. They plan on you failing.
Doing what they said got you into this mess in the first place. Continuing to do so is the definition of insanity.
Stop quoting policy & giving your customers Food Poisoning. Start helping the human in front of you & give them a reason to return.
You owe it to yourself. You owe it to your associates
Start appealing to your customers at the most elemental level of Emotional Intelligence
The pissed off customer is exactly the same as the person quietly walking away. Neither is coming back, yet the company bends over backward for one while taxing the other
Focus on emotion, not emotional reaction
Don\’t let it get to this point for either customer
Stop waiting for someone to get pissed before you help them
Do what’s right, not what’s written
No one ever built their business by quoting policy
Your business is built on who returns tomorrow, not on what you sell today
The POS system is not your boss
Sales are down this year because business was not built last year
Only you can save your store
What is your new return policy?
You can come back as often as you like d;o)
