Have you ever noticed in either your email, promotional ads on your home page or on Facebook the amount of adverts containing hype? If you open the page to what you think is an article, it turns out that it’s not. Many of the adverts are hype about looking younger, reversing aging, and more. Of course, if you read the ad, anyone who has plenty of extra cash can easily make the purchase of whatever product they are selling. The products, for example, that are anti-aging that are available online, in the drug store, large department stores or groceries are still offering the same hype but at a more affordable price. Recently an email came across my inbox. The teaser was, “The truth about your multi-vitamin.” Out of curiosity, I opened it to see just what the hype was all about. Anyone who takes nutritional supplements knows that logic dictates a multi-vitamin cannot contain every vitamin a person may need. There is no consideration that the manufacturers include when producing their product that can include every size and weight of individuals. The pills are made for the average person. Unfortunately, many people are simply not average. They are too tall, too short, overweight, underweight or somewhere in the middle. The article pointed out that according to government statistics and their own studies that the average person needed a certain amount of various vitamins. Of course they do but the whole point of the hype was to buy their pamphlets with their recommendations for the amounts of vitamins the average person required. However, there is so much hype in the nutritional supplement world that if a person followed everything they said, they would probably be really sick from the high quantities of the supplements they recommend. Moderation is always the best approach rather than follow the hype. The gossip magazines sell based on hype. The teaser ads as you stand in line at the grocery are there solely to incite your curiosity and buy their product. The Hollywood hype exists everywhere. When a couple marry, go out without their husband or wife, instantly the gossip starts and the hype is put in place for profits. There are so many products on the market worldwide designed to solve every physical, emotional and/or beauty problem that it’s impossible to believe any of it. Look what happens with the hype when the movie studios go overboard for a new release of a film Half the time the movie bombs and then the hype disappears and the movie is pulled. Hype is nonexistent in the Good Gus Series. The stories are for the young reader to enjoy and along the way learn a few good moral lessons. There is no hype if you are the executor or Trustee of a will or a trust. If the process is getting to you, visit maecharlesbooks.com and consider “Misplaced Trust.” It will certainly show you what you can expect.
