‘Letter to Progressives’ Shares Cautionary Message

‘Letter to Progressives’ Shares Cautionary Message

(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety by any print or broadcast media outlet or used by any means of social media sharing.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Entrepreneur, investor and lifelong educator David Parker refers to his new book, A San Francisco Conservative, as “a letter to progressives,” and in it, his message is clear.

“Stop trying to tax. Stop trying to distribute. And stop trying to solve problems by spending money,” Parker said in a recent interview.

In his book, Parker discusses both ends of the political spectrum and everything in between, and he reminds readers that the timeless principles of economics are essential to the preservation of American democracy.

Parker went back to school at age 50 to gain a deeper understanding of these enduring ideas — and the missteps of nations that deviated from them — to write A San Francisco Conservative. Just as his first book, Income and Wealth, provided readers with a thought-provoking examination of the foundations on which this nation’s freedom rests, his latest book also serves as a message of reassurance and challenge to the conventional political thinking of the day.

The issues Parker addresses are those he has focused on for more than half a century, throughout his 40-year career as a teacher in San Francisco public schools. In A San Francisco Conservative, he reminds readers that “crises” have affected the American economy numerous times over the nation’s history — but they pass.

Parker provides well-researched support for his belief that economic opportunities always exist. He cautions that government leaders — especially those who identify themselves as progressives — are jeopardizing the very democracy that has produced prosperity.

Themes covered in A San Francisco Conservative range from education to taxes and the political process itself. Parker challenges the widespread belief that a “conservative” (whether a resident of San Francisco or elsewhere) lacks empathy or a personal commitment to help those who are less fortunate. Government programs supported by many in today’s progressive movement to counter this misunderstanding merely increase the nation’s deficit in dangerous ways, Parker says.

Parker began his career in education at the age of 24 and served students at San Francisco’s inner-city public elementary schools for four decades as a music teacher, followed by 10 years as a volunteer. While pursuing his career in education, Parker became a successful real estate investor. It was success in business that focused his writing, teaching and career as a professional musician. Parker spent 20 years as a member of the Berkeley Symphony Orchestra, then 20 years as leader of the Dave Parker Sextet, which twice headlined the San Francisco Fillmore Jazz Festival. His essays have been featured in The Economist, The Financial Times and prestigious law journals.

Scheduled to coincide with the publication of David Parker’s playfully titled newest book, A San Francisco Conservative, a new podcast series sharing that title showcases Parker’s views on the proper role of government and how individuals can arrange for the principles of a free-market economy to work in their favor. As the podcast’s co-host, longtime journalist Tom Martin, has noted, “David Parker’s scholarly approach to the study of political economy provides much-needed historical context to important topics dominating the news, including the progressives’ call for dramatically increased government spending.”

Soul Searching Can Open the Door to True Wealth and Happiness

Soul Searching Can Open the Door to True Wealth and Happiness

(This press release may be reprinted in part or in its entirety by any print or broadcast media outlet or used by any means of social media sharing.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

For many years, Gerard Powell lived the “American Dream” — he was a multi-millionaire who had it all. But looks can be deceiving. The more he achieved, the more he struggled with drugs, alcoholism, depression and thoughts of suicide. Following a personal crisis, he began a journey of self-transformation and healing that culminated in the creation of the Rythmia Life Enhancement Center in Costa Rica, which has helped transform the lives of nearly 10,000 people.

In his second thought-provoking guide, Truthenomics: The Science of Allowing Abundance Through Honesty, he reveals the life-changing principles of “truthenomics” — that true wealth-building involves self-discovery, and is more about what’s imprinted on your soul than what’s printed on your bank statement.

“Everybody should have the opportunity to get rich once, so that they realize it’s not the answer,” Powell said in a recent interview.

In Truthenomics, readers will learn:

  • Why a problematic relationship with money can be an expression of traumatic events from early in life — and how to resolve them
  • The money paradox — why many people hold unconscious conflicts about money from childhood
  • How to be sure your understanding of money will bring authentic happiness and not a momentary fix
  • How to raise your daily happiness set point
  • How to fall forward from financial hardships
  • How to harness the four circles of growth to manifest your true heart’s desire

By fusing ancient wisdom and modern techniques, Powell aims to help readers create the lives that will truly make them feel whole.

About the Author
Gerard Armond Powell is a leading conscious entrepreneur, thought leader, philanthropist and public speaker whose mission is to transform lives. He is the founder of Rythmia Life Advancement Center in Costa Rica, the “go-to” facility for a spiritually awakening vacation experience. A personal crisis prompted Powell to embark on a journey of self-transformation. He traveled the world and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in search of every healing modality he could find. He was inspired to create Rythmia through a powerful encounter with plant medicine that transformed and liberated him from a lifetime of suffering. Powell now spends his days living at the resort and guiding each guest toward their personal transformation. Over 94 percent of the guests have reported that they received their “miracle.” This led Powell to create this book as a tool to help many others.

How to Overcome the Top 3 Obstacles Standing in the Way of Your Wealth Goals

How to Overcome the Top 3 Obstacles Standing in the Way of Your Wealth Goals

(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety by any print or broadcast media outlet, or used by any means of social media sharing.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Regardless of your income level, it’s important — and possible — to start building wealth now, and you don’t have to be an expert on finance to do it, advises author and financial planner Edward R. Williams.

His new book, Wealth Building for Beginners: Your Manual for Taking Control of Your Financial Future, Now! is an instruction manual for ordinary people that makes financial concepts easy to understand and adaptable for individual situations.

Williams details the top three personal obstacles that often stand in the way to building wealth and how to overcome them; provides step-by-step instructions for building The Wedge™; and offers ways to sustain and optimize financial habits.

“I grew up thinking that the number one priority with money is finding a way to get the bills paid,” he says. “There were never any conversations about saving and investing. I fell into many of the same traps as an adult. It felt like every time I saved a little bit of money, something would happen that would require that money I had saved.”

Williams hit rock bottom when his diabetic father needed surgery and asked the younger Williams to help cover some of the expenses. But he wasn’t able to. Feeling powerless and ashamed, Williams endeavored to create an actionable, practical system for building wealth. The result is what Williams calls The Wedge™, a framework for building wealth through insurance, investments, and retirement and estate planning.

Like a lot of folks, Williams once struggled to find his financial footing. In Wealth Building for Beginners, he offers readers the tools, strategies and encouragement they need to take baby steps to overpower procrastination and use that momentum to build wealth.

Author Edward R. Williams is an experienced and knowledgeable adviser, and registered representative who works with investment products, stock, bonds, annuities, mutual funds, life insurance, estate planning and retirement strategies. After working as an investment banker on Wall Street in New York and London, he launched his own financial services company, Williams Financial Group LLC. Over the past 23 years, he has helped numerous individuals and businesses plan for a successful financial future.

The Williams Financial Group is currently known for working with faith-based communities and instituting the cutting-edge “wedge” process to help congregation members achieve wealth.

As a planner, his focus is on helping clients make well-informed decisions regarding the best financial tools for achieving their individual goals. He believes in developing client relationships based on integrity, accountability and excellent service.

“Because of my brokenness, it took me a long time to grasp my value and discover the gifts and abilities I had been given,” she explains. “After a lengthy journey to healing, I discovered you don’t have to wait for someone to tell you who you are and what you have to offer. God has already defined your story; it’s a matter of embracing it and being the champion you were called to be.”

Olson’s Love Your Story gives you everything you need—tools, strategies and practical tips—to harness the potential of your greatest power: knowing your identity in Christ.

  3. How true champions are created

  5. The favor on your life
  6. Practical tools to rise above every challenge and soar
