Doing the hard things first | Bargains on Deals Site | Shoe covers
Welcome to the beginning of a whole new week. I hope you had a good and restful / fun weekend with friends and family. As long/hard as I work all week I have really come to look forward to the weekends when I have two entire days to do things other than work on the business. There are certainly times (seasons) when I have to work all the time (like when we first started selling Safety Supplies) so I am very grateful for the season I am in right now where I don’t have to. I hope that you take the time to appreciate the season you are in – even when it is “the busy season”. I have found gratitude and gratefulness in the busy seasons knowing that there will come a time they will be over with, and the hard work will hopefully pay off.
“Do the hard things first” – Writing the above makes me think about one of my tendencies/preferences, and something I try to encourage others to adopt. Whenever I have the option to do something fun or enjoyable, or knock out something that needs to get done, I tend to “do the hard things first” and knock out the thing that needs to get done. There is something very motivating to me about the delayed gratification of doing something I enjoy AFTER I have done what needs to be done. If I need to take the trash to the road, but I want to watch TV – I will go ahead and take the trash to the road and think about what I want to watch while I am doing it (I have a looong driveway). When I get back, I can more fully enjoy watching TV without the guilt of knowing there is something that needs to get done. I’ll also tend to knock out a few other things while I am “in motion” like taking something to the car that needs to go to the office, etc. There are limits of course. There is ALWAYS something that “needs to get done” so you have to know where to draw the line. I think it’s easy to “feel” when you are facing the decision. Think about doing the hard things first for a while and see how that might change things for you.

From Joe, our friendly Safety Supplies Product Marketer:
Happy Monday! I can’t help but be overly excited with what this week has in store. We have A LOT of new additions coming to the site and I can’t wait for you guys to see all the products we’ve been working so hard on. Till then I’d like to focus on some of our other product lines:
Businesses are opening back up again. While we have lots of products to assist in protecting you and your customers, an added level protection that I haven’t seen in too many places yet are shoe covers. These are perfect for any high foot traffic area’s as shoes are a very big transmitter of germs, bacteria, and of course DIRT. If you work in a line of business that requires going in and out of customers facilities/homes (HVAC, real estate agents, movers, etc.), give them an extra sense of safety by showing up with a sufficient supply of shoe covers to keep yourself from spreading anything undesirable.
Lately I’ve felt like every day I figure out a new way to stay safe on the go. This often causes me to forget about some of the simplest ways I’ve known about my entire life. Two of the most effective ways we’ve stayed safe is always keeping wipes and sanitizers with us at all times. CK has the perfect combination of both! Not only do we carry small sanitizers perfect for keeping in your bag, car, pocket, etc. but we also carry individually packed alcohol wipes that are perfect for on the go! Good for sanitizing but also for cleaning glasses, laptop screens, and other surfaces from dirt and smudges.
Please let me know how I can be of service to you. If you need assistance with something, advice, or even if you just need someone to pray for you, I am here and listening.
Craig – CEO

COVID-19 / Business News for Today:
- Over 10,069,000 people worldwide have recovered and over 2,090,000 people in the US have recovered! The death toll in the US stands at 149,800.
- Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bower has unveiled a list of 27 states deemed “high-risk areas” — meaning those traveling from them must self-quarantine for 14 days if arriving in the nation’s capital. As part of the District’s effort to contain the coronavirus pandemic, the quarantine requirement was officially announced via an order from Bowser on Friday that did not specify which states were affected. It defined “high-risk areas” as “locations where the [seven-day] moving average daily new COVID-19 case rate is … 10 or more per … 100,000 persons.” Maryland and Virginia are exempt from the order.
- White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on Sunday said he was “hopeful” that within days there will be an announcement on new treatments for COVID-19. “We’re hopeful that, with some of the breakthrough technology on therapeutics, that we will be able to announce some new therapies in the coming days,” Meadows said in an interview with ABC News.
- Moderna and N.I.H. Begin Vaccine Trial With 30,000 Americans – One of the first large studies of the safety and effectiveness of a coronavirus vaccine in the U.S. began today. The study, a Phase 3 clinical trial, will enroll thousands of healthy people at about 89 sites around the country.
- People who’ve been laid off or furloughed from their jobs now have significantly more time to decide whether to hang on to their employer-sponsored health insurance, according to a recent federal rule. Under the federal law known as COBRA, people who lose job-based coverage because of a layoff or a reduction in hours generally have 60 days to decide whether to continue health insurance. But under the new rule, that clock doesn’t start ticking until the end of the COVID-19 “outbreak period,” which started March 1 and continues for 60 days after the COVID-19 national emergency ends. That end date hasn’t been determined yet.
- The tallies for people hospitalized in New York with the coronavirus are continuing to drop to the lowest levels since the pandemic began, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday. There were at least 646 people hospitalized in the state on Friday, a new low since March 18 and down slightly from the previous day, the Democratic governor said in a statement. The number of reported deaths in the state rose by one, to 10.
