Deuterium Deposits: Enough Power to Boost the President’s Ego vs US?

Bongbong Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

A very large deposit of deuterium can be found in the Philippine Deep, located off the waters of Surigao – but a lot more within the West Philippine Sea.  First discovered and isolated in 1932 by an American chemist Harold Urey, deuterium or heavy water is composed of two isotopes of hydrogen and an oxygen atom, with a chemical formula of D20 or H30.  Initially, the Americans do not want the Philippines to deal with China for its exploration.




[VIDEO]: Vast Deuterium deposits from its discovery to its development with possible partners. Can Duterte’s attitude towards the US fueled by the confidence that Filipinos have an ACE card  with nature’s gift?


The Promise for the Future

Even in highly developed first world countries and the possible costs might be staggering, research on this opportunity is still worth investing in, considering the high stakes involved.  This program could propel the Philippines as the biggest hydrogen fuel (Li-Hy) producer in the world, and become the only fuel producer 40 to 50 years from now in an oil-depleted world economy.


America’s Dream

The United States of America once dreamed of sending a man to the moon.  Now it is history. What she did to pursue that dream made her the world’s most technologically advanced and economically prosperous nation. This could happen to the Philippines.


Hope for the Philippines

Once Deuterium exploration and extraction succeed, public works, private construction, economic and financial booms are expected to happen in the Philippines in the same manner as those which happened in the Middle East and financial centers of the world from 1974 to 1984, with everybody earning their respective comfortable livelihood, while pricing basic prime necessities at reasonable and affordable levels.


US’s Rivalry with China

Since the US and China are now competing with almost everything in the international scene, it is but natural for the Americans to feel bad if Philippines chooses to deal with China for the deuterium exploration. The US has been very confident that Filipinos will remain loyal to them. They have not realized that their part in former President Ferdinand Marcos’s downfall can go back to them at this time.


Duterte as Marcos Loyalist

In one of the interviews of Bongbong Marcos, the son of the late strongman, he mentioned the betrayal of the US to his father who thought that they were in friendly relations. Now, it looks like a Marcos loyalist in the person of President Duterte is here to avenge that.


Better Deuterium Deal

Is Duterte just bluffing the US to get a better deal when Deuterium exploration is predicted – or he is really serious in pushing through with China’s partnership?

China-ASEAN Expo marks trade investment cooperation

China





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Despite the tension along the Southeast Asian region, an initiative which is a joint effort between China and ASEAN members nations pushes through to promote trade investment cooperation among members. Here’s an insight on that:

Annual Event

The annual China-ASEAN Expo and the China-ASEAN Business and Investment Summit, are underway in the southern Chinese city of Nanning. The expo has set up pavilions for trade and investment cooperation, highlighting international economic and industrial links.

This year’s China-ASEAN Expo comes at a significant time. 2016 marks the 25 anniversary of the establishment of China-ASEAN Dialogue relations and the first year after the ASEAN Community was built.

An array of meeting and forums have been held during the expo, emphasizing cooperation on cross-border e-commerce, finance, science and technology, agriculture and energy.

The theme of this year’s China-ASEAN Expo is Building the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, Forging a closer China-ASEAN Community of shared Destiny. More than 26-hundred exhibitors from home and abroad have bring their local commodities on display, that number has reached a historical new high.

This year, Vietnam is the honorary country. And the country continues to send the largest number of enterprises to the expo among the 10 ASEAN nations.

Vietnam has displayed products with potential for exports to China, such as food, wooden furniture, electronic devices and handicrafts.

Many visitors have rushed to the Vietnam exhibition hall for rubber sandals, which are considered as a symbol of Vietnam,

“Our shoes are from Vietnam and our shoes are very popular in China.The shoes are very comfortable. It’s endurable and you can wear it indoor and outdoor, it’s very soft and comfortable,” A Vietnamese seller said.

Many say the expo has provided a platform not only for countries to strengthen relations, but also brings benefits for ordinary people.

Technology Problem: U.S. companies supported Microsoft in their lawsuit against government policy

Technology





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Opinion: Microsoft argued that the law allowing the government to confiscate computer data on third-party computers and barring companies from telling contacts that they are targets for investigation against the constitution. That made sense. Read the full report here:

Microsoft vs Government Law

WASHINGTON — Technology, media, pharmaceutical and other companies, along with major corporate lobbying groups, filed legal briefs on Friday in support of a Microsoft Corp lawsuit that aims to strike down a law preventing companies from telling customers the government is seeking their data.
Friday was the deadline for filing of friend-of-the-court briefs by nonparticipants in the case. The filings show broad support for Microsoft and the technology industry in its latest high-profile clash with the U.S. Justice Department over digital privacy and surveillance.
Microsoft’s backers included the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers, Delta Air Lines Inc , Eli Lilly and Co, BP America, the Washington Post, Fox News, the National Newspaper Association, Apple Inc, Alphabet Inc’s Google, Amazon.com Inc, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and many others.

Microsoft filed its lawsuit in Seattle federal court in April, arguing that a law allowing the government to seize computer data located on third-party computers and often barring companies from telling their customers that they are targets is unconstitutional.

The Justice Department argues that Microsoft has no standing to bring the case and the public has a “compelling interest in keeping criminal investigations confidential.” Procedural safeguards also protect constitutional rights, it contends. A Justice Department spokesman declined comment on Friday’s filings.

Microsoft says the government is violating the Fourth Amendment, which establishes the right for people and businesses to know if the government searches or seizes their property, in addition to Microsoft’s First Amendment right to free speech.

Hillary Clinton’s 2015 tax return showed that she’s doing what she’s preaching

Hillary Clinton





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
As Hillary Clinton released her latest federal income tax return rcently, that shows the couple paid more or less a third of their multi-million dollar income to the tax bureau. $10.6 million was paid in 2015, which is a lot less than the almost $28 million they made the year before.
Overall, their tax return showed that both paid $3.24 million in federal income taxes – which means their effective tax rate – a measure of their income tax burden – was 30.6% based on their adjusted gross income, that is on par with their 32% effective rate in 2014.

Clintons’ effective tax rate as 34%, included the $300,000 or a bit more the couple paid for self-employment taxes,considered as payroll taxes for Social Security and Medicare. They are normally not included in the calculation of federal income tax burdens as per basic practice.

This report clearly shows that Hillary Clinton and Bill have satisfied the Buffett Rule that she’d campaigned to implement if elected. The proposed mandate will rule that anyone with adjusted gross income over $1 million would would be paying a minimum of 30% of their income in taxes.

The couple are highly paid speakers and writers that accounted to the $6.7 million they made in speaking fees alone. That is a lot lower than the $20 million they made the previous year. $3.1 million was the income on various books they wrote. Bill Clinton’s consulting business also made around $1.7 million.$226,000 in pension and annuities were also received. Bill Clinton is also entitled to receive a pension worth of $200,000 annually as a former president. on top of that, they gained $109,000 in interest and dividends, with $3,000 in capital losses claimed that was carried over from prior years.They also donated $1 million Clinton Family Foundation, which is another entity and not the Clinton Foundation that has been scrutinized nowadays.

This move ultimately gave intense pressure to Donald Trump who is still hesitant to make his tax returns public. This is why she is pushing him to do so as they found some irregularities in it that might discourage Trump’s voters.Trump promised however that he would disclose it when the audit is complete but the damage has been done on his credibility on the issue because it will give the public a notion that he needs to delay things to be able to do something with his paying almost nothing as an active real estate tycoon that benefited from numerous federal tax breaks.

Aside from that, he is breaking with a 40-year bipartisan tradition of transparency that is asked for by the public from presidential candidates.
The actual value of his fortune and other businesses affiliations are now in question because of the delay. Thus giving hints to critics that he pays very little in income taxes or worst, nothing at all.

Billionaire Warren Buffett Endorsed Clinton and Despised Donald Trump

Campaign-2016-Clinton-620x413





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Billionaire investor Warren Buffett is so committed to endorsing Hillary Clinton that he is willing to take people to the poll who have difficulty in going there. What’s surprising is, Buffet and Trump are from the business sector – but he despised Donald Trump so much that he is questioning his tax returns and his ignoring independent business people or small-time entrepreneurs.

At the Nebrasks campaign with with Hillary Cl, Buffett scrutinized Trump’s business record, questioning his bankruptcies and his not releasing his tax returns. The so-called “Omaha Oracle” then announced a new campaign called “Drive 2 Vote,” hoping to bring out voters in Nebraska’s second congressional district, offerring a single Electoral College vote to the district winner.

Buffet promised this: “I will take at least 10 people to the polls who would otherwise have difficulty getting there,” said Buffett, and added that he had reserved a 32-seat trolley for the day to be able to reach the highest-percentage turnout of any congressional district in the country. “Let’s give America a civics lesson;”he urged everyone.

Trump responded to the Muslim-American family who spoke against him at the Democratic National Convention by attacking Khizr and Ghazela Kahn, whose son in the US Army was killed in Iraq in 2004.

Buffett described Trump’s attack as “the final straw,” just because his family had not sacrificed like military families and he knew nothing about losing a beloved through war.

Meanwhile, Clinton seeks to woo moderate and independent voters. In fact, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban campaigned with Clinton over the weekend, as well as former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg delivered a searing indictment of Trump’s economic proposals during the Democratic National Convention.
Before several thousand people gathered at an Omaha high school, Buffett also challenged Trump to show off their tax returns in one venue. He added that after Trump listed his casino and hotel company on the New York Stock Exchange before in 1995, investors lost money, even though in 1995 they can easily make money on anything.

Buffett asserted even more that the tax policy favors the wealthy despite being wealthy himself, which Clinton agreed, thus pledging to implement more taxes on the rich. Clinton further criticized Trump’s love for foreign products that is killing their own economy.If the district has the highest percentage of voters and if Clinton wins, we can expect Hillary and Warren to be back in the streets of Omaha dancing together and probably Warren in an Elvis costume once again again.

Brexit may add to global economic turmoil but not the only factor

G20





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Political change, territorial disputes, excessive production, terrorist attacks and influx of refugees are major world problems affecting the global economy as discussed by the 20 largest economies recently. Brexit really did affect world investments also due to the confusion as to what the UK’s move will be in relation to the EU and its members. However, despite the split, the UK will continue to nurture alliance with European countries. This is why sooner or later the economy worldwide is expected to rise up again. Here are the details of the G20 forum:

BBC Reported: The UK’s vote to leave the European Union heightens risks for the world economy, finance chiefs have said at the end of the G20 summit in China. The outcome of last month’s referendum “adds to the uncertainty” for the global economy, the group of the world’s 20 largest economies said.
It urged the UK to remain “a close partner of the EU”, amid concerns Brexit talks could be acrimonious. Chancellor Philip Hammond said Brexit had come up “a great deal” at the G20. “The reality is there will be a measure of uncertainty continuing right up to the conclusion of our negotiations with the EU,” he told reporters. Following the meeting in the Chinese city of Chengdu, the G20 group said it had the tools to cope with the potential economic and financial consequences from the referendum result. Other factors complicating the world economy include geopolitical conflicts, terrorism and refugee flows, according to the G20. The president of Germany’s central bank, Jens Weidmann, said there were no signs yet that economic development in Europe had been affected by the UK’s referendum on 23 June. The G20 members agreed that despite the Brexit vote the global economy would improve in 2016 and 2017, Mr Weidmann said.

It added: However, new figures on UK companies in the three months to the end of June have raised concerns about the health of the economy before the Brexit vote. Sixty-six UK listed companies issued profit warnings in the second quarter, which was the most for that period since the financial crisis in 2008, according to accountants EY. Alan Hudson, EY’s head of restructuring in the UK and Ireland, said: “It’s been a dizzyingly unpredictable time since the UK voted to leave the European Union. “What we saw in the second quarter – and are still seeing now – is the initial impact of this uncertainty.” Analysts expect economic data on Wednesday to show the UK economy grew by about 0.5% in the second quarter compared with the previous three months. Last week the International Monetary Fund (IMF) downgraded its forecasts for UK economic growth, from 1.9% to 1.7% for 2016, and for the global economy, from 3.2% to 3.1%. On Sunday IMF managing director Christine Lagarde said the G20 had taken place at a time of “political uncertainty from the Brexit vote and continued financial market volatility”. In a statement the G20 finance officials said the global economic recovery was continuing “but remains weaker than desirable”. Separately, G20 policymakers said they recognised that excess steel supply was a global issue. The excess capacity of steel has had a negative impact on trade and workers and requires a collective response, they said.

Price roll back in the Philippines is due to Oil oversupply Speculation in the US

BBC reported: Oil prices have fallen to a three-month low, hit by rising concerns that a global oversupply of both crude and natural gas will dampen prices. US oil fell 2.4% to $43.11 (£32.72) a barrel, its lowest level since April, meaning it has now fallen by 12% so far this month. Brent crude dropped 2.1% to $44.75, its lowest level since 10 May. Shares in oil and firms also lost ground, with Exxon Mobil shares down 1.8% and Chevron down 2.6%. “Crude oil markets have been under pressure as oil supplies have started growing with the resumption of output from the capacity lost due to wildfires in the Canadian oil sands,” said EY energy analyst Sanjeev Gupta.
Data from market intelligence firm Genscape also suggested US production had increased. Inventory at the Cushing, Oklahoma delivery base rose by 1.1 million barrels in the week to 22 July. “Supply continues to return from disruptions, refined products are severely oversupplied, crude demand is falling well short of product demand, and key product demand is decelerating,” Morgan Stanley said in a note.

On Friday, data showed the amount of US oil and gas extraction points had increased for the fourth week in a row. The slump in prices from as high as $115 per barrel in 2014 led many shale oil producers to cut the number of rigs as producing oil was no longer profitable. But despite a decrease in American crude supplies over the past year, there are still large stocks of gasoline in the country, even as the US hits its summer driving peak.
The value of the dollar which has steadily risen over the past month has also put pressure on crude oil prices.

UK is fishing in two lakes: free trade with China eyed as well as stronger relations with India





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Brexit orBritain’s exit from the EU has brought surprising actions from the British government. Perhaps, they are just weighing trade opportunities to retain a healthy economy after it slumped a bit after Brexit. Exploring free trade with China can be misinterpreted as showing rebellion to EU after gaining their freedom from it but others put it as their way of learning the hard way. Perhaps they wanted to experience China’s unfair trade practices, mass produced sub standard products and sometimes dangerous product contents. On the other hand, they are also on there way to have some talks with China’s rival, India – another giant in Asia, but it is not known yet what will come out from that. Clearly still in the exploration stage. Read this:

The Inquirer wrote: LONDON, United Kingdom — Britain’s finance minister warned Brexit would cast a “shadow” over the world economy but said he was eyeing a free trade deal with China in interviews with the BBC and Sky News on Sunday. Speaking on the sidelines of the G20 meeting of leading world economies in Chengdu, China, Philip Hammond told Sky that the vote to leave the EU was “not the only shadow the world economy faces”. “There is going to be uncertainty about the outcome hanging over the world economic outlook for perhaps the next couple of years,” Hammond said.

It added: China President Xi Jinping before the referendum had said that he hoped Britain would remain in the 28-nation bloc to promote the “deepening development of China-EU ties.” Senior figures from some of Britain’s biggest financial services companies, including HSBC, Virgin Money, the London Stock Exchange and Standard Life were travelling with Hammond. Prime Minister Theresa May also discussed a trade deal with Australia in a phone call with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull earlier this month. Foreign Office junior minister Alok Sharma was also travelling to India on Monday on his first visit since his appointment. “Britain is open for business and thriving on the world stage. We want the strongest possible relationship with India,” Sharma said.

Jojo Binay is not a Fish, Pimentel – He teaches People how to Fish

Jojo Binay





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Now that Senator Koko Pimentel is already the confirmed Senate President, he has to stand by his promise to jail former Vice President Jejomar Binay for the alleged corruption committed when he was still mayor of Makati. In fact, Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales echoed that by filing cases against him without probable cause and no concrete evidence – just hearsays. Koko was noted saying that Binay would probably be the first big fish who is going to prison for that matter and headlines flashed around tri-media including social media.

Well, this is what most Makati residents are saying in response to that. “Binay is not a big fish, Koko – he teaches people how to fish and you should learn that also as a public servant. His public services in Makati are second to none. Up to this date, you are considered privileged if you get a Makati resident and medical cards – that existed even before the plan of creating a national ID card for Filipinos. Do you know why? It is easy to print cards but even that most of past governments cannot do. The difficult part is coming up with concrete benefits to offer to Filipino Citizen card holders.

Senator Koko Pimentel, now that you have the power to create legislation that would benefit Filipinos, can you at least try to come up with various privileges that a Filipino can have under the Duterte administration? Will a Filipino ID card holder be prioritized in the country’s top paying jobs? Will they get livelihood loans to start businesses? Can their children go to quality schools for free? Most of all, can they get hospitalized without worrying about the cost? Wait until you can accomplish these before even thinking of jailing Binay who had done all of these for the citizens of Makati. For now, learn from him.

No Stopping Bilateral Talks with China on Free Trade after Britain’s Exit from EU

Britain





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
There seems to now have more clarity on the Brexit episode on how it came about – with supporters saying that the EU has been regulating the country and dictating what to do and what’s not. Shortly after their exit, they are looking at going back to the negotiating table with China that has been proposing a free trade relations for both countries. This of course is not permitted under the EU. Read this report for the details:

Forbes wrote: This is an interesting turn up for the books, Phillip Hammond, the new Chancellor of the Exchequer, has said that it would be a good idea for Britain to pursue a free trade deal with China. He also seems to be talking about it the right way around – we’d just love to have more Chinese investment for example. But what really interests about this is that China has been asking for a free trade agreement with the European Union for some time now. And given that the people running the EU don’t really believe in free trade at all, rather in a customs union or zollverein, they’ve been putting them off. It’s entirely possible therefore that post-Brexit Britain will have a free trade agreement with China before the EU does. To our benefit, of course.

Chancellor Philip Hammond has begun discussions with China on an ambitious free trade deal which could see greater access for major Chinese banks and businesses to the UK economy. The Chancellor told the BBC it was time to explore “new opportunities” across the world, including with China, one of the UK’s biggest inward investors. That is despite a short term economic shock from leaving the European Union. Of course, I don’t think that it’s despite Brexit, it’s obvious that it’s because of Brexit. Before we decided to leave (and technically, even now) it was illegal for Britain to try to negotiate a trade deal on its own.

It added: Hammond is looking at the right part of this as well: “We already have a strategic partnership with China. “We have hugely increased our trade with China, investment both by British companies into China and by Chinese entities into the UK. “That’s about as far as we can go while we are members of the European Union. “But once we are out of the European Union then I have no doubt on both sides we will want to cement that relationship into a firmer structure in a bilateral way that’s appropriate. And there’s an easy way to negotiate this too: Senior government sources have told me that officials are looking at New Zealand’s free trade agreement with China which took four years to negotiate and came into effect in 2008.

Take that text, cross out “New Zealand” and replace with “United Kingdom” where appropriate and we’re done. We already know that China’s happy with the text after all. The European Union has problems with such a deal:

Michelle Lederman – Successful Individuals Follow the Laws of Likability





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Do you know hot to create connection through clarity and confidence? Networking and relationship are known to be essential keys for success – but how can you establish and utilize them effectively without breaking your back? yes, people must like you but how are you going to do that?

Then move on to confidence. Confidence is one of the most persuasive traits you can possess. But what comes first: the experiences to give you confidence or the feeling of confidence? Although it’s a little like the chicken vs. the egg dilemma, Michelle says you can authentically fake it ’til you make it! While that sounds contradictory, it simply means to really find the authenticity in the acting as if it’s part of the equation. So authentically act as if you are confident, and eventually you will be. Listen to the full podcast here: http://theartofcharm.com/podcast-episodes/michelle-lederman-the-laws-of-likability-episode-398/

The Art of Charm continued: If you did, you were being inauthentic. Before beating yourself up about it, simply take a look at why you were inauthentic. Were you concerned with looking good, or were you caught up in your own discomfort? Find out why and then figure out what you can do next time to be real and be yourself. Then go out and do it.

Ramit Sethi – Networking and Success in another Perspective





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Ramit Sethi, one of the popular men in the online world explains the scenario of networking first then success next or vice versa. However, no matter how much you socialize and you have nothing to offer, you won’t get much of your networking efforts. You need to have that credibility first to be respected in your line of work.

Eventually he did become much better at social interactions, and even figured out how to be great at networking. And one of the keys to doing so was some advice he received from Guy Kawasaki on the topic of getting speaking gigs. When Ramit was in his early twenties, Guy told Ramit he had to get great at something before people would clamor for him to speak. Listen to the full podcast here: http://theartofcharm.com/podcast-episodes/ramit-sethi-the-real-truth-about-networking-and-success-episode-399/

The Art of Charm added: And that’s advice he passes on today: get really good at something and doors will open up for you. While you’re doing so, be sure to help those around you. The real key to networking isn’t to try to connect with the Mark Cubans of the world, it’s to connect with people a step above you; help them and continue doing so for the people two steps above you, then three steps, etc.

Nick Unsworth: Life on Fire after working hard and losing all





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
There are a number of talented business people who made lots of money after working so hard but ended up losing all – but few realized that they can do it again but this time, with the lessons learned. Nick Unsworth is one of the few – who made it big by not forgetting the reasons why they failed in the beginning.

“The company ended up filing for bankruptcy and just screwed all of us distributors,” says Nick. “They kept all of their customer base, reorganized the company, and I…lost quite a bit of money because I signed up about 40 or so college kids the month that happened. They spent $400 and I didn’t want my reputation to be hurt or damaged from it, so I took all the money in my savings account and I paid all those kids back so they were made whole because the company wasn’t going to do it. I was left with nothing except high expenses and and this M3 BMW. It was just a disaster.” Listen to the full podcast here: http://theartofcharm.com/podcast-episodes/nick-unsworth-life-fire-episode-527/

The Art of Charm continued: “People look at Gary Vaynerchuk and how hard he works — my dad would give him a run for his money,” says Nick. “I saw how much stress was getting thrown at him from every direction and I just always thought to myself, ‘I don’t want to be like that. I want to have time freedom. I want to have a family one day and be able to be there.”

Ian Altman of Grow My Revenue – is coaching how to make billions





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Ian Altman is the author of Amazon’s two best selling books on making money. He maneuvered their $100 million to become an over $1 billion company in just a matter of over three years. He was not thinking of how they can benefit from customers at all while doing this. Instead, he was creating strategies from the side of the customer. He knows that hard selling will not work – but if you are a trusted person and giving free advices, then people will listen to you. You might not make sales instantly, nut once you get the loyalty of your customers, they are there to patronize you for a long time.

Ian talks about Van Mensah from Nordstrom, a legendary salesman who’s been selling him suits for years. When Ian was preparing for a trip out of town and needed gloves, there weren’t any in the store that were quite right. Rather than shrugging his shoulders and wishing Ian luck (like a lot of less successful salesmen would do), Van walked him to the other side of the mall — to Macy’s, the competitor — and told the salesman there exactly what brand and size was required. He tried them on, and they were perfect. Sold! Listen to the podcast here courtesy of The Art of Charm: http://theartofcharm.com/podcast-episodes/ian-altman-grow-my-revenue-episode-427/

The Art of Charm added: Ian points out that such a perfect outcome isn’t inevitable in every circumstance; sometimes the client will opt to go with your competitor if your product or service isn’t the right fit for their needs. But the trust earned from showing how you’re willing to go the extra mile to benefit your client proves that you’re a problem solver above self-interest. They won’t forget this, and they’ll go out of their way to seek your help the next time they’re in a pickle.

A lot of people attend such events with the misguided notion that dispensing business cards with the machine-gun rapidity of a casino blackjack dealer — to as many people as possible — is the way to make a lot of connections. But really, connections that get remembered beyond that initial handshake tend to come about more organically. Sometimes it’s the natural, incidental chit chat at after parties surrounding a networking event that get people to bond. (And maybe a little alcohol after a long day of trying to force connections helps, too.): Check here for the full story: http://theartofcharm.com/podcast-episodes/aoc-toolbox-social-capital-basics-episode-469/

The Art of charm suggested: So if the very concept of networking — and the events tailored around it — are no longer ideal bastions of making genuine connections (if they ever were), then what options does someone who wants to do it the right way have? Listen to this toolbox episode in its entirety — it’s geared to give you a free leg up with bountiful resources for how we network authentically, AOC style.
