Minuteman Press Florida Franchise Owners Celebrate 15-plus Years in Business

Minuteman Press International Inc

Minuteman Press International is proud to acknowledge the following franchisees in Florida who are celebrating 15 years in business. Below you will find their insights on owning a business as well as their advice to other aspiring entrepreneurs and Minuteman Press franchise owners. Kathy Collier Alford Minuteman Press, Town ‘n’ Country, FL “I am not sure where 15 years has gone. Before I opened my shop in November 2007, I was in retail management for 25 years opening new markets all over the country. When I decided to do something different, all I knew is that I wanted to work for myself. Minuteman Press was in the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 and looked interesting. My brother originally brought Minuteman Press to my attention as I would have never thought about owning a print shop because I did not know anything about the industry. We contacted the Florida Regional VP, went on a few shop tours, and here I am 15 years later! In the beginning, Minuteman Press has a system for growing your business, and I followed it. You must get plugged in! I did not even know what networking meant. I joined and visited various local groups and met so many people in the beginning that I still print for today. I joined a Chamber of Commerce; I got involved in philanthropy groups that I never had time for in my corporate life. I got involved in the community around my shop, and all of these experiences have been super rewarding. I would never have thought that owning my own printing franchise could help me grow as a person. I learned about all of these amazing things that I did not even know were going on, and I feel super blessed. Minuteman Press also has systems in place to help with pricing and growing my customer base. The Minuteman Press FLEX software has helped tremendously; FLEX has taken us to a whole new level of technology, pricing, emailing, invoicing, etc. If I was to dole out any advice to a new owner it would be to: Teach your staff customer service and treat them right; you cannot do this alone (they are part of my family) Get to know your neighborhood, join groups, and get involved Do the things that have worked that Minuteman Press has already proven can work Build relationships and customer referrals (referrals are the best compliments you can get) Use SEO to your advantage Work hard and you will earn it!” Ken & Lisa Rose Minuteman Press, Clermont, FL Ken Rose is the former Co-Director of Training for Minuteman Press International. Ken and his wife Lisa moved to Florida and from Long Island and they have now owned Minuteman Press in Clermont for 15+ years. Ken shares the following advice that carried over from his time at Minuteman Press International that has helped him achieve success and longevity over the years as a Minuteman Press franchisee: No matter what is going on, you have to have a positive attitude Plan your day the night before and arrive early Do what you say you’re going to do, and do it (Roy Titus, co-founder, Minuteman Press International) Be proud of what you do & always tell people who you are & what you do (Roy Titus) Be active in the community through clubs and organizations, and be visible Pay yourself a fair wage (Roy Titus) Jeff Reich Minuteman Press, Cape Coral, FL Jeff Reich has been the owner of Minuteman Press in Cape Coral, FL for 15+ years. Short and sweet, the advice Jeff shares is as follows: Understand your customers' expectations and exceed them Be persistent Deliver great quality In congratulating these owners, Florida Regional Vice President Larry Trimble says, “I am thrilled to be able to celebrate these impressive milestones with Kathy, Ken & Lisa, and Jeff as well as all of the incredible Minuteman Press franchisees across Florida who have achieved such accomplishments. It is a pleasure to be able to support them with their businesses and I look forward to continuing to do so.” For more information on #1 rated Minuteman Press franchise opportunities and to see more Minuteman Press franchise reviews, visit https://minutemanpressfranchise.com.

Black Women, Breast Cancer and the Tests That Can Save Lives

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/13nWSPuDIAs The death rate from breast cancer continues to decline, according to a new report from the American Cancer Society. But there's a wide, worrisome gap in Black women's outcomes that remains unchanged. Black women are more likely to die from breast cancer than white women. While breast cancer incidence rates among Black and white women are close, mortality rates are markedly different, with Black women having a 41% higher death rate from breast cancer. Black women are disproportionally affected by more aggressive breast cancers because of their biology. A recent study showed that Black women are significantly more likely to have genomically High Risk tumors compared to white women, despite having the same clinical factors. This means that, all other things the same – right down to their age and the size of their tumors – the Black women in the study were more likely to have a more aggressive type of cancer. The way we can address some of these disparities is through genomic tests like MammaPrint and BluePrint, which look at 150 important genes within a tumor to estimate the risk of recurrence of that cancer. The number of genes/RNA analyzed by MammaPrint and BluePrint is higher than any other test, and captures the diversity of pathways that allows for consistent results regardless of race and ethnicity. With that information, we as physicians can make more informed decisions with our patients about what their optimal treatment plan should be. There are a few available genomic tests utilized in the clinic to guide discussions around chemotherapy benefit. One example is MammaPrint/BluePrint which are the most comprehensive tests with the most consistent results across diverse groups of patients, compared to other tests. In addition, only the BluePrint test can catch tumor subtypes that may look less dangerous, but actually behave more like triple negative breast cancer when you further classify. This is a very aggressive kind of cancer, that is over-represented among Black women. It is very important the gene expression profiling result a woman receives about her tumor is consistent and reliable regardless of her ethnicity and race, like MammaPrint and BluePrint’s. Studies showing mis-categorization of risk in minority populations due to under-representation of these patients in genomic studies and clinical trials that lead to the approval of these tests is alarming. Every woman with breast cancer has the right to know the correct and clear biological information from her tumor, regardless of her skin color, so she can make timely decisions about her treatment with her care team. For more information about gene expression profiling, including resources that can help you talk to your doctor to make sure the test being offered will work best and most accurately for you, go to Agendia.com.

With Labor Market Still A Concern, Are There Endless Opportunities In The Online Learning Market For This Burgeoning AI Company?

Amesite Inc.

Learn More about Amesite Inc. by gaining access to the latest research report Many organizations are struggling with the digital transformation efforts they have begun, according to David Rogers, a professor at Columbia Business School in New York City. While the reasons vary, the most common is that there is a talent and skill shortage. While upskilling could be the solution, not many organizations prioritize it. As PA Consulting Chief Research Officer Charlene Li says in the “Digital Transformation Refocused: New Goals Require New Strategies” report published by Harvard Business Review, not enough businesses focus on the transformation part of digital transformation, which is about people. Bridging the Gap With Ed-Tech? Amesite Inc. (NASDAQ: AMST) is an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered software company providing cloud-based learning and content creation ecosystems for educational institutions, businesses and organizations. Amesite recently launched Version 5 (V5) of its AI-driven online learning platform. The upgraded version was built for scale-ability to deliver to large user bases with features that lead the industry. V5 also offers the capability to integrate the platform with other software programs and partner sites seamlessly. Amesite’s V5 platform equips customers with a holistic learning ecosystem and offers capabilities from an e-commerce solution to auto-enrollment of users to streamlined deployment in just 24 hours. The U.S. Department of Labor Statistics says there are more than 65,000 medium and large companies. With the current skill and talent shortage, most of these organizations could be looking to onboard, train and upskill a large number of their employees. Amesite says its V5 platform is scalable and capable of meeting the needs of over 65,000 customers. The launch of V5 is part of Amesite’s long-term goal of becoming a leader in the e-learning space alongside players such Coursera Inc. (NYSE: COUR) and 2U Inc. (NASDAQ: TWOU). The global e-learning market was valued at $215 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $1 trillion by 2028. With V5, Amesite also aims to help with workplace training both in the U.S. and globally. The U.S. workplace training industry had a market value of $165 billion in 2020, according to Statista. Global Market Insights reports that by 2028 the industry is projected to reach $1 trillion. Partnership Deals Amesite has had a number of collaborations and its partnership with Wayne State University’s College of Engineering is a proof point that Amesite is building systems that retain customers – and enable them to scale. The company announced the expansion of its partnership with the university, which will integrate its V5 e-commerce solution into its system. The new development will enable learners to register, pay and enroll for courses directly on the university’s website, increasing the accessibility and engagement of Wayne State University’s nearly 30,000 engineering alumni and hundreds of thousands of other professionals. Amesite says its platform will help Wayne State and other partnering universities scale globally, by delivering tailor-made programs suited for their learners. By offering on their own brands, universities can use Amesite’s solutions to leverage their strengths, rather than compete their products against other universities’ offerings on common sites. The results speak for themselves considering that Wayne State reports 98% retention across its Amesite-powered programs in the three years it has worked with the company. Amesite also highlighted the platform’s capabilities and recently reported on the successful delivery of a “Full Scale, Global Enterprise Learning Solution” for the EWIE Group of Companies (EGC) in a press release and case study. “We know that people are our most important resource. Having people with the most advanced skills is a huge competitive advantage for us,” said Jay Mullick, President of EWIE Group of Companies. “Amesite is at the center of all our business process training at EGC. We have appreciated the support of their team throughout the relationship. Using Amesite’s global upskilling technology platform enables our people to gain the know-how to meet our most demanding customers’ needs, quickly and efficiently.” For Amesite, the market potential looks significant and promising because of the many thousands of educational institutions, organizations and businesses seeking the type of services the company offers. The company’s list of recent achievements also includes winning an exclusive partnership with NAFEO, a national membership organization that represents 106 HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities ). With this partnership, the Company is targeting $10M in revenue, by raising support for NAFEO to launch partnerships with its member Colleges and Universities — this represents a massive opportunity with a large group of educational institutions in its own right and could point toward further success for additional significant partnerships. NAFEO members enroll more than 700,000 students, they have 72,000 faculty, and 7 million alumni worldwide.

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology Produces 'Change Makers'

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology

The next generation of mental health professionals - some 275 “change makers” were awarded master’s and doctoral degrees last Friday at two commencement ceremonies for the Washington, DC campus of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. The graduates enter a profession dealing with severe shortages at a time when experts say as many as one-in-five people in this country suffer from a mental disorder, and only half of those who need help can get it. In addressing the graduates, Dr. Michele Nealon, Psy.D. President of The Chicago School, said “I hope that your time as a Chicago School student has lit a fire within you – a fire to provide empathetic support for those in need. I urge you to follow your passion for service as far as you can and to light the way for others.” Joining Dr. Nealon in awarding diplomas was Dr. Donald Schultz, Ph.D, Chief Academic Officer of The Chicago School and Dr. Thelma Day, Ph.D., recipient of an honorary degree for her contributions as a counselor-educator, organizational leader and college professor. One of two student speakers was Dr. Akshaya Parthasarathi, Ph.D., a data analyst at the federal Office of Minorities and Women Inclusion, tasked by the U.S. Congress to develop policies to ensure equitable treatment of all by the nation’s financial institutions. She shared her story as an international student who is grateful to her professors and fellow students. “What looked like a distant dream for a girl from India, to study abroad in an institution like this, was made possible because of each of you. Accepting me as I am--allowing me to be different--has let me grow into a global citizen with varied experiences and stories in my pocket,” she said. “My goal is to share these experiences with people of the world, to show the power of community, and the success one can achieve when people let you be you.” Another student speaker, Dr. Bethany Patterson, Ph.D., serves as clinical director at Helianthus Positive Behavior Supports, provider of counseling services to children and families in Virginia and North Carolina. She told her story, as she sought an institution that would support her role as a military spouse and mother of three. “I needed a school that was supportive and respectful of the military lifestyle because I had unique needs,” she said. “I found a place where the learning environment is optimized by active learners with diverse cultures,” she said. “Today I embody The Chicago School’s values of innovation, service, and community-- I am giving back by creating a space to encourage other military spouses to further their education.” The Chicago School serves a majority minority student body in which two of three students identify as individuals of color. The 43-year old non-profit institution has more than 6,000 students enrolled in 30 degree and certificate programs. About The Chicago School of Professional Psychology: Integrating theory with hands-on experience, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology provides education rooted in a commitment to innovation, service, and community for thousands of diverse students across the United States and globally. Founded in 1979, the nonprofit, regionally accredited university now features campuses in iconic locations across the country (Chicago, Southern California, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Dallas) and online. To spark positive change in the world where it matters most, The Chicago School has continued to expand its educational offerings beyond the field of psychology to offer more than 30 degrees and certificates in the professional fields of health services, education, counseling, business, and more. Through its engaged professional model of education, commitment to diversity and inclusion, and an extensive network of domestic and international professional partnerships, The Chicago School’s students receive real-world training opportunities that reflect their future careers. The Chicago School is proud to be a part of TCS Education System, a nonprofit, integrated system of colleges and universities that works collaboratively to advance student success and community impact.

Environmental Artist Gives a Voice to World’s Most Endangered Animals with Exhibition Beginning Tomorrow (Nov 2nd - 13th) at London's Oxo Tower Gallery

PR Superstar

WITH COP 27 getting underway soon, one of the world’s top wildlife and environmental artists is staging a free all-powerful, thought-provoking exhibition from tomorrow (Nov 2 nd -13 th ) at London’s OXO Tower Gallery highlighting the peril of the most endangered animals on the planet - with sales of her artwork funding vital conservation work. Multi-award-winning fine artist and passionate conservationist Sophie Green was a selective mute until the age of seven and spent her time outside immersed in nature and wildlife. Having battled mutism as a child, the 30-year-old now aims to give animals a voice through her striking artwork. Her photorealistic paintings of some of the world’s most under-threat creatures, such as polar bears, rhinos, tigers and whales, attract an A-List following, with 150,000 fans on social media, and she is on her way to becoming a blue-chip artist like British fine art photographer and conservationist David Yarrow. Sophie’s artwork provides a window into another eco-system - connecting the viewer with wildlife from all over the world, whilst also drawing attention to the plight of species at the hands of mankind and climate change. “I paint animals to save animals,” said the Surrey-born former primary school teacher, who lives and works in East Sussex and has previously exhibited at COP 26. “It is my hope to make a difference in the world of conservation and use my art to make a positive impact on the world.” Sophie’s work often draws the viewer’s attention to the vulnerability, power or emotion of the animal - and the star attraction of her free forthcoming art exhibition ‘Impermanence’ is the commanding ‘Majesty’ featuring an East African lion and named in honour of the late Queen Elizabeth II, who was instrumental in encouraging conservation efforts across the world. Since turning professional, Sophie has donated more than 10% of her income to wildlife and conservation charities worldwide, as well as setting up her own project fund that will support vital conservation work, from safeguarding the snow leopards of the Himalayas, to conducting research on threatened marine species like sharks and turtles. ‘Impermanence’ is Sophie’s collection of 14 inspiring, evocative and thought-provoking pieces, painted in a hyper-realistic style. The talented artist travels the world taking photos of endangered creatures in their natural environment that she can then paint - she went to the Arctic last year and next year, she’ll be visiting Tanzania. “All of my pieces are based on a species or a current conservation issue that has drawn my attention,” she said. “If there isn’t an underlying reason for creating the piece of art, my passion for the piece dwindles. For example, my recent expedition to the Arctic brought forward so many issues in terms of the wildlife, climate change, ice melting etc, that for a while, a lot of my pieces were polar-themed.” Sophie aims to forge a path for other wildlife artists and female artists in general “to be seen and be respected in the contemporary art world” - and to use their art in a positive way and be a spokesperson for issues they are passionate about. She is also the founder of online gallery, Art Basket, that supports and sells the artwork of independent artists like herself. “I was in my mid-twenties and although I loved working with kids, teaching is such a full-on profession and I didn’t have any time to do what I truly loved,” Sophiesaid. “My passions lay in creating art and making a difference in the natural world. When you don’t have any time for a creative outlet, or to do something you love, it forces you to make some tough life decisions. Letting go of a stable, reliable income to go and chase a ‘pipe dream’ at the time seemed terrifying, but it was the best decision I have ever made. “Animals and the natural world have always been close to my heart. As a young child, I was a selective mute, which meant that I couldn’t speak outside of the family home until the age of seven. I was very introverted and spent almost all of my time outside with nature and wildlife, or reading books about animals. It was never a choice to become a wildlife artist and conservationist, it came completely naturally. Animals don’t have a voice and are not responsible for any of the struggles that they face due to human encroachment, climate change, poaching, etc. It is a no-brainer for me, that as many people as possible should be trying to make a difference for the voiceless.” In 2021, Sophie was awarded the ‘medal of excellence’ from the Artists for Conservation Foundation (AFC) representing 500 of the world's leading nature and wildlife artists, for her outstanding work in the wildlife and conservation sphere. She was also selected to be one of 20 artists to exhibit at COP26. And she recently donated one of the pieces from her ‘Impermanence’ collection to Tusk and the African Community & Conservation Foundation (ACCF), where it sold at auction for a whopping $24,000. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), there are currently more than 40,000 species that are believed to be under threat. Sophie said: “‘Impermanence’ is both a collection of art and the foundations of a lifelong purpose. The collection will be funding vital conservation projects worldwide, as well as raising awareness for important conservation issues and inspiring others to make a difference. The name ‘Impermanence’ is open to interpretation, highlighting the philosophy of the impermanence of life, as well as the impermanence of many species and eco-systems on this planet. But there is also hope - in the impermanence of the world’s problems.” Admission to wildlife artist Sophie Green’s ‘Impermanence’ exhibition is free and runs 11am - 6pm from November 2 nd - 13 th at the OXO Tower Gallery located in London’s South Bank on Barge House Street, SE1 9PH.

MEXC lists CHANGE token for trading in the Innovation Zone

ChangeX

Global centralized exchange MEXC has listed the multi-chain CHANGE token for trading in its Innovation Zone. MEXC made the CHANGE/USDT trading pair available to its 10+ million user base at 12:00 UTC on Monday, October 31. On MEXC, CHANGE trades on the HydraChain blockchain. The MEXC listing comes in light of significant new features making their way to Changex - the CeDeFi project behind the token. The app now offers fiat-crypto purchases thanks to the integration of Ramp Network’s on-ramp technology, which enables an easy-to-use interface for bank transfer and debit/credit card crypto transactions. Changex has also enabled ERC20 token swaps, allowing users to acquire any token on the Ethereum network in the app via swapping. “ MEXC listing CHANGE is a great first step for the project in terms of CEX partnerships and serves as proof of Changex’s potential and integrity ”, said CEO Nick Iliev, commenting on the listing. “MEXC is one of the most well-known exchanges in the world and, being there, CHANGE will be exposed to a much wider user base, not to mention that users will have access to tools like margin and spot trading, as well as various payment options to acquire CHANGE. It’s going to make a huge difference in terms of accessibility and exposure. ” Mr. Iliev added. Before the MEXC listing, the options to buy CHANGE included in-app swaps via several trading pairs in the app, and trading on the UniSwap and HydraDEX decentralized exchanges. As Changex strives to offer an uncomplicated crypto and DeFi experience even to non-native crypto users, the MEXC listing presents another option to acquire CHANGE on easier terms. Changex’s recent integration of Ramp Network’s fiat-to-crypto interface also serves this purpose, simplifying how tokens can be acquired. With the added functionality of ERC20 token swaps in the app, users can now swap to any ERC20 token much more easily and without knowledge of DEX’s, by using a simple swap function instead. “ It’s what we strive to achieve in the long run. We want to provide all users with a simple interface into Web3’s vibrant ecosystem, and ease of access to assets is paramount, because not everyone knows what slippage, DEX or liquidity mining is. Yet we want to offer our DeFi services to any interested party. For this to happen, it has to be simplified to the core, i.e. an intricate and sophisticated backend with a very accessible interface where users can benefit from the best of DeFi, banking, and crypto. ” concludes Mr. Iliev. Next in line for the CeDeFi project is the launch of banking services in the app, which will offer users SEPA IBANs for easy fiat/crypto functionality and access to traditional banking in the non-custodial DeFi wallet. The first months of 2023 will also see the start of the issuance of the Changex crypto debit cards, which will enable mobile fiat and crypto spending in all places that accept card payments. About ChangeX ChangeX is a hybrid personal finance mobile app which fuses crypto, DeFi, and banking into a single package. Users can access multi-chain crypto and an array of DeFi investing tools, including first-ever Leveraged Staking, while benefiting from traditional fiat banking, thanks to personal IBANs and SEPA functionality. The ChangeX Crypto Debit Card completes the offering, allowing users to spend crypto and fiat anywhere, and thus experience true financial freedom. Follow the project on Twitter and Telegram for more information and regular updates. The Team ChangeX founders Nick Iliev and Gary Guerassimov have a rich history in developing successful crypto and fintech products, among them xChange.bg - Bulgaria’s leading crypto exchange. HydraChain and LockTrip co-founders Nikola Alexandrov and Hristo Tenchev are also on board, each bringing seven years of blockchain experience to the project. The project’s CTO Martin Kuvandzhiev is one of the core developers at Bitcoin Gold - a hard fork of the source Bitcoin code, which brought decentralization back to retail traders and made mining via common GPUs possible again. The Advisers ChangeX’s advisory board features industry experts from some of the biggest names in crypto, DeFi, and finance. SoftBank Vision Fund’s Neil Cunha-Gomes, whose crypto investments include Consensys and Elliptic, has been working alongside seasoned experts Dimiter Gurdjilov and Stefan Ivanov in outlining the company’s strategy and vision. Dimiter Gurdjilov has more than 15 years of investment banking, private equity and business development experience from Merrilll Lynch, JPMorgan, George Soros’ Bedminster Capital, NBGI Private Equity, and Challenger Capital Management.
