Engineer Turned Entrepreneur Tim Schmidt Featured in the Wall Street Journal

Posted by admin on Apr 24th, 2015

Tim Schmidt, concealed carry expert, was recently seen in the Wall Street Journal as part of the feature “Portraits of Success.”

West Bend, WI – April 24, 2015 – Tim Schmidt, President and Founder of the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA), was recently seen in the Wall Street Journal as the focus of the feature presented by America’s PremierExperts® titled “Portraits of Success.” The piece that ran in the April 15th edition showcases how the USCCA has become the Nation’s ultimate concealed carry resource, dedicated to educating, training and insuring responsibly armed Americans. Tim is also the President and CEO of Delta Defense, LLC.

In the Wall Street Journal Tim Schmidt remarked, “Everyone has defining moments in their lives—times when normal, everyday events end up having a lifelong impact. I’ll never forget those first couple of days after my son Tim Jr. was born. My mind was flooded with all kinds of new thoughts and feelings: joy, amazement and wonder, gratitude and responsibility…along with feelings of fear and frustration. I was completely overwhelmed by the idea that I was now responsible in every way for this new little life. How could I do everything in my power to provide for him? To protect him (and my wife) from the evil that will always exist in our world? I knew I wasn’t the only one asking questions like this…but I wasn’t able to find the answers I was looking for. That’s really what sparked the creation of the USCCA. It’s a place for people to start—and continue on—their concealed carry journey with a lot of guidance and without judgment.”

In June of 2011, the USCCA changed the course of concealed carry and self-defense history with the introduction of their revolutionary Self-Defense SHIELD, an insurance-backed criminal and civil liability benefit that provides legal and financial assistance to members in the aftermath of a self-defense shooting. An American-based, nationally renowned billion dollar insurance company underwrites the policy for all members. Schmidt spent the better part of a year working with dozens of lawyers and insurance companies to create a solution to address the scary aftermath of a justified self-defense shooting—one that would give any law-abiding citizen who responsibly defends himself and his family a fighting chance in court.

Though Self-Defense SHIELD is perhaps the most crucial benefit of being a member
of the USCCA, the organization offers other resources designed to help responsibly armed Americans navigate the concealed carry lifestyle, including an extensive collection of helpful videos and guides, an active blog, a helpful CCW reciprocity tool, and a brand-new eLearning platform that brings firearms and self-defense training into the home.

The Wall Street Journal feature also included a brief personal Q&A section, where Tim answered questions such as “What do you and your family like to do in your spare time?” “What are some of your favorite books?” and “What is the best advice anyone ever gave you?”

Schmidt has no doubts about the fact that his organization is making a difference across the nation. “It’s such a blessing to do something meaningful that impacts the lives of thousands of like-minded Americans who, like me, will do anything to ensure their loved ones are protected.”

Retirement Advisor And Insurance Specialist Gary Marriage, Jr. Featured On Yahoo Finance

Posted by admin on Apr 21st, 2015

Gary Marriage, Jr. was recently featured in Yahoo! Finance and other major online media outlets, including The Street, Tampa Bay Business Journal, MarketWatch and many others.

Crystal River, FL – April 21, 2015 – A feature story about Gary Marriage Jr., President/CEO of Nature Coast Financial, was recently seen on Yahoo! Finance as well as the other major online publications such as the Boston Globe, Orlando Business Journal,, Tampa Bay Business Journal and MarketWatch, among many others.

Over the years, Gary Marriage has helped thousands of retirees and pre-retirees develop stable plans to ensure their savings will work and be there for them when they need it. Unlike some advisors who focus exclusively on the retirement demographic, Gary also specializes in planning for younger high net worth individuals such as athletes, celebrities and business owners. He designs plans to drastically increase their estate size, while reducing their net worth from future excess taxation – giving them a choice between being “taxed up front on the seed, or later on the harvest.”

Because he humbly believes that a single person like him simply cannot have all the education, knowledge and experience to fully serve a diversified clientele, he has from the start favored “The Team” approach. Complementing his expertise on planning and taxes, he works with several top local and national attorneys and CPAs – which he dubs “professionals outside my jurisdiction or expertise” – to help clients with deeper issues related to taxes, trusts, wills and other elements that come together to create the perfect financial strategy.

“I like to say that the best part of my job is that I help people every day and I get paid to do it…I get paid to be people’s hero,” remarked Gary. “I love it when they say, ‘I wish I had met you sooner.’ That means that I’m making a substantial difference in their lives.”

In 2014, Gary expanded his influence by becoming a best-selling author, joining today’s leading entrepreneurs and professionals to co-author (with Steve Forbes) “SuccessOnomics: Learn the Secrets of Success in the New Economy from Today’s Leading Entrepreneurs & Professionals.”

In addition to being a featured guest on local and national TV, radio and in print publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, CBS, NBC and Fox Business, Gary is also serving as Executive Producer on the upcoming documentary film “Armonia,” created with the non-profit Armonia U.S. Inc, which supports programs abroad that are committed to working with the poor to bring about Christian transformation, empowerment and a better life.

Tax Advisor Barry G. Fowler, EA, Shows Differences Between Taxpayer Mistakes and Outrageous Claims

Posted by admin on Apr 21st, 2015

Barry G. Fowler, EA, leading expert in tax resolution issues and CEO of Taxation Solutions, helps taxpayers understand the differences between honest mistakes and outrageous claims on tax returns.

Houston, TX – April 21, 2015 – Barry G. Fowler, CEO of Taxation Solutions, posted a new blog on the company website entitled “Common Mistakes and Outrageous Claims That Arouse Suspicion at the IRS.” With the recent individual tax return deadline having just passed, those who have requested an extension still have time to make decisions about their claims.

As Mr. Fowler acknowledges, “Making legitimate claims on your tax return is your inalienable right as a law abiding American. If you have real claims and real receipts to back them up, then it doesn’t matter if they seem aggressive or not. I encourage you to claim them.”

In addition, Fowler states, “Many people make claims that either immediately arouse suspicion or are plain ridiculous.” He adds, “Most of the ridiculous claims only go through when an individual does their own tax return. If you go through a professional tax preparer, the outrageous claims will not make it through to the IRS unless you are working with an unethical preparer who is looking to scam the IRS in your name.”

Fowler provides a list of some of the more common mistakes and a list of some of the more outrageous claims people have attempted. The list of mistakes includes misreporting income, claiming losses from hobby activities and putting an incorrect Social Security Number.

As Fowler states, “Understanding the differences between mistakes and outrageous claims is important. Some of the items from either list can be honest mistakes or misunderstandings. If you are consciously trying to cheat the IRS, though, repeatedly arousing suspicion may eventually lead to an audit.”

Bryant Meyers’ Passions For Health/Wellness And Physics Drive His Emergence As Energy Medicine Expert

Posted by admin on Apr 21st, 2015

The Entrepreneur and Bestselling Author’s Grounding In Body-Mind-Earth Connections Inspired His Revolutionary 2013 Volume On Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy PEMF: The 5th Element of Health

Sarasota, FL – April 21, 2015 – While enrolled as a physics major at Georgia Tech in the early 90’s, Bryant Meyers did something extraordinary that perfectly embodies his lifelong instinct to go against the grain to achieve revolutionary results. He took a year off from college – not to play, travel or chill, but to literally spend eight hours a day immersed in reading books on philosophy, spirituality, comparative religion, quantum physics and other things that would help him answer life’s deeper questions.

“I’ve always been driven to find out who am I?” he says. “Why do I act the way I act? Where did we come from? What is the origin and nature of the Universe? I loved exploring not just the physical Universe but its spiritual dimensions, the esoteric philosophy of reality, and do meditation to experience the god within as a means to discover my true self. My love of physics stemmed from a deep yearning for understanding these questions. It also stemmed from my interest in energy medicine, health and wellness.”

Meyers’ path to becoming one of the world’s experts in the groundbreaking science of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) was unconventional. His position at the Health Hutt health food store led him to host “Forever Young,” a show             1that taught people how to grow younger naturally. He became a nutritionist and was a physics/math professor at Central Michigan, Baker College and Muskegon Community College. He spent over 18 years researching, testing and investigating over $500,000 worth of energy medicine and equipment and studied with the world’s experts.

His years of learning frequency medicine left him with a home where he could artfully combine his multitude of passions for physics, biology, consciousness, health, wellness and longevity.

Meyers thinks of PEMF therapy as a “whole body battery recharger.” He has personally helped thousands of people with energy medicine and PEMF therapy devices to achieve pain relief, better sleep and overall better health. A successful entrepreneur, his company Energy Ways sells numerous products, including the iMRS 2000 (Intelligent Magnetic Resonance Stimulation), which uses earth based Schumann Frequencies and has a built in intelligent biorhythm clock.

Aside from the development and marketing of PEMF based energy medicine systems and sharing his expertise via outlets like his popular YouTube channel, the crown jewel of Meyers’ years of dedication and research is his revolutionary bestselling book “PEMF – The 5th Element of Health,” published in 2013. Its success has given Meyers an opportunity to share his vast expertise on GalamTV, Hayhouse Radio and “The Brian Tracy Show,” hosted by the bestselling author, motivational speaker and global success expert; Meyers’ segment has been shown on various ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox affiliates.

One of Meyers’ main theses is that the earth’s magnetic field and its corresponding PEMFs are as important to our health as food, water, sunlight and oxygen. In Meyers’ view, these frequencies are necessary for the human body’s circadian rhythms, energy production and even keeping the body free from pain. While certainly not intended as a substitute for the recommendations of physicians or other health care providers, he devotes much of “PEMF – The 5th Element of Health” to practical health benefits of PEMF therapy.

Not surprisingly, Meyers’ influence has recently extended into the realm of film documentaries on various related topics. He is Associate Producer of a film called “The Connected Universe,” whose director Malcolm Carter explains as a “journey of the exploration of the interconnection of all things.”

Meyers also appears in the upcoming doc “SuperCharged,” a film that focuses on some of the exciting biological research relating to light, magnetic charge and water – the exchange of energy. In addition to being interviewed as an expert of PEMF therapy, Meyers is penning the energy medicine-focused companion book to the film.

“One of my main missions and passions is to help people take responsibility for improving their health. The book’s goal is to inspire readers with practical tips on how to take health into their own hands via things like proper diet and hydration, full spectrum sunlight, proper exercise and sleep and finding ways to connect with the natural energy fields of the earth.”
