In your Market America UnFranchise business, a positive mindset contributes greatly towards the success of your business. Market America VP, Jim Winkler, has been, since 1995, an UnFranchise owner and attributes his success to having the knowledge and the right attitude. According to Winkler, you need to examine these traits so that you are able to analyze and see if you are using them appropriately in your UnFranchise business. He continues to say that he believes that attitude comes before success and the difference between success and failure is the amount of effort that one puts into a venture.
First, you should be up to date with Market America’s news and features. This information can be accessed through JR Ridinger’s blog or any other reliable news source, for example, the Better Business Bureau.

One of my favorite Market America products is the Trim tea. It is gluten-free and aids in weight loss. It targets metabolic balance, satiety and appetite control. It is recommended that one takes the tea only once a day and it has been proven to show results in 8-10 weeks. The right attitude may be just what you need to take your UnFrachise business to the next level.
The rate at which people are getting obese in the United States of America is bringing worries to public officials. Each year millions of the taxpayer’s money are used in the attempt to stem obesity. In this effort, various states are coming up with extra taxes and penalties. For instance, some states have added the tax for junk food and soda. They hope that this will be workable because when the product costs more to buy, many people will opt for healthier and cheaper options. From January 2017, the extra tax on soda was effected in Philadelphia. For each ounce the consumer purchases, they are required to pay a tax of 1.5 cents.
The soda tax was created with the best of intention. However, it is impacting negatively on the low-income earners. The larger percentage of individuals who take soda are low-income residents. Those who make higher income can easily pay the extra tax. The pop stores have also been affected. They are left to compete with grocery stores that have more capital. The consumers are opting to travel outside the city for their shopping, to avoid the taxes. Within two months, the small-scale business owners experience a 30 percent loss while their larger retail counterparts made a 20 percent increase in sales.
The soft drink industry is fighting against this new taxation. Some courts ruled in favor of the tax. The attorney of the sector said that the ruling of the lower court was not in line with standards set by the higher court and as such have appealed to the Supreme Court. Karl Heideck is a lawyer based in Philadelphia, and he quite understands the proceedings of the tax case. His area of specialty is litigation, compliance as well as risk management. Mr. Heideck has been practicing law for the last 10 years and as such has ample experience.
He is a graduate of Swarthmore College class of 2003. Karl Heideck later went to Temple University School of law and graduated in the year 2009. His experience in law has armed him with writing skills. He shares legal developments such as the extra taxation of soft drinks in Philadelphia on his blog.

At the Oxford Club Private Wealth Seminar last week held at the Four Seasons Resort located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, someone attending asked how much money they should have in stocks when they reach retirement age. This answer will all depend on your age, health, monthly expenditures, and how big your portfolio is.
Three Decades of Retirement
There is a valuable, real-world solution that should benefit you called retirement rebalancing. Today, Americans are living longer than ever before. If you retire in reasonably good health at the age of 65, you might be looking at three decades of retirement.
In a 20 to 30 year period, you will need a large amount of equity to generate long-term returns that are able to exceed the inflation rate. Inflation isn’t very drastic today, but that might change in the future.
Those who retire face the possibility of having too much of their money in stocks. When you’re still young and adding to your portfolio, a bear market offers a wonderful buying opportunity.

According to Dr. David Samadi, when a person faces a stressful life or a major illness, he or she does not want to experience it alone. This is the period when you need a support group. For that reason, Dr. David Samadi created a prostate cancer support group from where men can meet for emotional support, share ideas, and discuss their experiences regarding the disease. Men who are infected with the disease should know that they are not alone because other men also suffer from the same challenge. Support groups are safe places where people can comfortably open up about their current situations. When they are in support groups, they know that everything about their issues will be confidential.
Dr. David Samadi launched the support group with the mission of advocating for the awareness that it is necessary for men to get annual screening for prostate cancer. This will catch and curb the disease at its early stage. The support group will also help men who are diagnosed with the disease understand the variety of available treatment options. For those who have to survive the illness, this will be a platform for encouraging and inspiring those who are undergoing the treatment process. Furthermore, the support group will emphasize on the essentiality of continued education, which in turn help them with the understanding of the several effects of prostate cancer.
Dr. David Samadi emphasizes that his goal is to come up with a support group, which entails family members, a community of patients, and friends who are dedicated to deal with the prostate cancer. The meetings of the group will be open to any person that shares the same need and attitude to reach out to the people who are affected. By meeting on a regular basis, members, friends, and family members can offer strength to patients who are undergoing diagnosis, treatment, or recovery.
