Minuteman Press Million-Dollar Circle Member Michael Levy Grows Sales for Levittown and Farmingdale Franchises

Minuteman Press International Inc

Michael Levy owns Minuteman Press in Levittown, NY located at 3000 Hempstead Turnpike. In June 2021, he also purchased the original Minuteman Press franchise in Farmingdale, NY located at 324 Main St. Already a member of the Minuteman Press International President’s Million-Dollar Circle, Michael has continued his strong sales growth in the first two quarters of 2022, including record monthly gross sales in March 2022. Key Drivers of Growth When asked about the key drivers of his growth in 2022, Michael shares, “Some would say luck, I would say persistence, perseverance and simply being known to be someone who gets things done. While there have been many challenges due to supply chain issues for the past year or so, I was able to use that to my advantage.” Michael further explains how he has been able to manage and overcome supply chain issues, saying, “For example, I had a customer contact me for a job I had never done before but I had done other jobs for this customer. It was a huge job, for 150,000 each of two envelopes. Someone else, who normally does this job for them, was not able to get the stock. So, the customer called me and told me what happened and asked if I can help.” He continues, “I spent two days researching and I was able to get both items for them and deliver them when they needed. One of the suppliers was through one of the field reps at Minuteman Press International, so it was great I could leverage that connection with my franchisor. I ended up producing $25,000 worth of envelopes I had never done before, and they just recently asked me to quote their next order of 200,000 of each one.” Michael sees the wide variety of products offered by his two Minuteman Press franchises as another competitive advantage. He says, “It’s examples like that envelope order plus the other items we offer that most other printers do not, such as in-house screen printing, embroidery, dye sublimation, and stamp production, that allows us to stay busy and grow. Another key is to have enough customers ordering products that when one is slow, others are not. This is a key ingredient, especially with my larger clients.” Promoting the Return of Live Events on Long Island As more live events, concerts, ball games, and trade shows return to Long Island, Minuteman Press is well-positioned to pitch in and help promote them. Michael shares, “It is very nice to be getting orders for tickets, programs, journals, and most importantly, items for trade shows and community events. Promotional items and apparel have really picked up over the past 6 months and that is because these events are happening again. That certainly gets me excited to be able to offer such a wide range of products that cater to all of my customers.” As for what advice he would give to other Long Island business owners right now, Michael shares, “Of course, every business is different, but one thing all businesses must do is to market themselves. Marketing is a very wide-ranging word and can be done in many different forms. Simply wearing a logo polo shirt is marketing. In addition, advertising, mailings, flyers, business cards, promotional items, apparel, and anything you can put your company logo on are all forms of marketing.” He adds, “That is exactly where I, as the owner of two Minuteman Press franchises, come in and help. We can put your logo on just about anything that allows you to market your business. I always tell my customers when they ask, ‘What type of marketing should my business do?’, to try a little bit of everything and see what works best for your specific business.” To find your local Minuteman Press on Long Island, visit their brand new consumer website, https://minuteman.com.

New Research Shows Positive Sentiment for Ron DeSantis Steady, No Fluke

Ready for Ron

Today, Ready for Ron, a draft committee encouraging Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President, released research it commissioned from Impact Social showing positive sentiment amongst critical “floating voters” towards Governor DeSantis remains steady. Previous reports showed positive sentiment for Governor Ron DeSantis growing by more than 8 points from earlier analysis reports, indicating the gain is no fluke, but part of steady momentum. “It’s great to see positive sentiment towards Governor DeSantis staying high in these reports – despite an increasing drumbeat of attacks from the left,” stated Lilian Rodriguez-Baz, Chief Legal Counsel for Ready for Ron. “The response from our work to build grassroots support is impressive, and this research confirms the tremendous support we see on the ground. The positive feedback and engagement are significant and continue growing exponentially.” Ready for Ron launched an advertising and grassroots mobilization effort in late May to help convince Ron DeSantis he has the support to win the Presidency in 2024. The PAC also filed an official Advisory Opinion Request with the Federal Election Commission to ask if it may share its supporter list with Governor DeSantis to convince him to run and when – not if - he becomes a candidate. To generate the report released today, Impact Social researchers analyzed the publicly available social media discussion in relation to Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump among swing voters from June 29, 2022 to July 13, 2022. Additional reports are expected to continue every two weeks. Previous reports are available here. “We carried out detailed language analysis of US social media discussions back to May 2016 to capture social media users into a database of 40,000 swing voters,” explained Phil Snape, Director at Impact Social. “With 40,000 participants, we are operating what is likely the world’s largest focus group – as big as a Football stadium.” The summary of Impact Social’s second report states: This has been a difficult period for Donald Trump with net sentiment falling 11pts (-30 to -41) over the last two weeks. This should set off alarm bells in Mar-a-Largo. It has long been believed that Jan 6 divides people into two camps. Those who love Trump think his involvement in events that day are a nonsense, a witch hunt cooked up by his enemies desperate to bring him down and ensure he never runs again. Whereas those on the left are convinced of his guilt regardless of any evidence to the contrary. However this analysis shows that floating voters, particularly those on the right, are increasingly siding against him as new revelations of what happened on Jan 6 take their toll. This has resulted in an increase in the amount of posts stating that they are against Trump (+15pt- 31 to 46). Worryingly for team Trump are the low number of people on the right who are prepared to defend his actions. When discussing Jan 6 right leaning voters tend to pivot away from events and try to draw attention to other Trump ‘successes’ such as low unemployment or relative global peace. It is therefore fair to conclude that many on the right seem uncomfortable talking about the events of that day. It is also interesting to note how few floating voters speak about the ‘stolen election’. This conversation has been almost non-existent within this 40K panel since this analysis began six weeks ago, which begs the question of how many floating voters side with Trump and believe the Democrats stole the presidency? For his part Ron DeSantis seems to be coasting along. Despite being in the middle of a re-election campaign - which by design means that the candidate is duty bound to upset some voters in order to attract others - his net sentiment among floating voters remains consistent at -6. In fact, in contrast to Trump, the conversation over the period has remained largely the same with those in favor of his politics and style seeing him as a good governor, with a solid track record in office and their preferred candidate ahead of Trump for 2024. “We are excited to see our efforts paying off. Support for Ron DeSantis continues to grow, despite increasing attacks from the Left, and his base is solid,” Rodríguez-Baz continued. “We are building the biggest grassroots movements ever, and with support growing like this, it will happen even quicker than anticipated.” Ready for Ron continues its TV and online advertising efforts to engage Americans to sign the petition at www.ReadyForRon.com to Draft Ron DeSantis to run in 2024. “Despite reports to the contrary, the only war on former President Donald Trump, is coming from the radical left. All of us at Ready for Ron appreciate his leadership and effective policies that led to a booming economy, lower crime, and affordable gas prices. We are #ReadyforRon to carry these policies and the America First agenda forward,” Rodríguez-Baz said. Impact Social is a specialist social media, online monitoring, and analysis company. Its unique methodology ensures unrivalled accuracy to show what has been said and its impact. Impact Social is the only company in the world providing this high level of analysis. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with ‘Ready for Ron’ legal counsel, Lilian Rodríguez-Baz, or an Impact Social spokesperson, please contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or dan@readyforron.com Contact Details Dan Rene +1 202-329-8357 dan@readyforron.com Company Website https://www.readyforron.com/

Telland Releases First of Its Kind Farmland NFTs on Telos Blockchain

Telos Foundation

The mint is currently underway on Telos EVM providing users with a unique opportunity to own collectable artistic NFTs representing access to yields from 100 square meters of physical land within the Proyecto Ecológico Nuestro Paraíso in the Northwestern region of Piura, Peru, South America. However, the use-case of Telland NFTs goes far beyond simple ownership. These land plots will contribute to the growth of local farmers' sustainable organic produce and a more robust economy in the region. Perpetual Rewards for Holders Users that mint one or more Telland NFTs will receive annual rewards in perpetuity, financially backed by the revenue generated from the South American farmland. Currently there are only 100 NFT parcels of land priced at $150 USD in TLOS tokens each available to mint. The rewards payment breakdown is as follows: Year 1 of ownership - Holder receives minimum guarantee of $30 (20% APR on NFT mint price) Year 2 of ownership - Holder receives a minimum guarantee of $50 (33% APR on NFT mint price) Year 3 of ownership - Holder receives a minimum guarantee of $75 (50% APR on NFT mint price). This minimum continues perpetually from year 3 onwards. The collection debuts at an ideal moment as accumulating land ownership is more challenging for millennials today than at any other time in our history. Furthermore, Telland NFTs offers holders a chance to generate passive revenue from a real-world asset that benefits the environment while omitting painstaking bureaucratic processes and paperwork. Telland is also a participant in the Telos Mission NFT contest, which offers NFT creators a chance to win substantial prize money and acclaim in the NFT community. The contest has over 60 submissions to date and Telland's participation provides yet another opportunity for value increase in the event Telland is announced a winner. Public voting begins on July 23, 2002, on the TaiKai Network. "We chose Telos primarily for two factors: the community and the technology. The vision of the founders of Telos was to create a community around the ideas of service to society and care for the environment. Telland wants to do just that by converting arid lands into farmlands that produce fruits with a high nutritional content that help the well-being of humanity. In terms of technology, the ease of creating and deploying smart contracts in the Telos EVM, the incredible speed and low cost of transactions was such that the decision to build on their network was simple." -Paul Gonzales, Telland Co-founder "Telland is an amazing example of real-world application of NFTs and a glimpse at the future of tokenised land and real estate. At $150 an NFT, these prove to be a very interesting way to gain exposure to the value of real estate. The idea of being able to buy and trade land rights with such ease is magical to anyone who has had the pleasure of making a traditional real estate purchase where the process is incredibly slow (taking 2-4 weeks) and requiring middle men and costly fees" -Justin Giudici, Telos Foundation CEO About Telos Live since 2018, Telos Blockchain (ticker: TLOS) is an ESG compliant Layer 1 smart contract platform that offers full-service compatibility with Solidity, Vyper and Native C++ smart contracts. The Telos EVM is the most powerful and scalable Ethereum Smart Contract platform built to power Web 3.0.
