I Get By (with a little help from my friends)

Happy Tuesday Wholetonians!
I really look forward to writing you each week. Recently, I was blown away to find out from one of our subscribers that their children literally run to the computer after school every Tuesday to read my emails! These are the kind of things one never expects, but when I learned that even children enjoy my musings, well it truly touched my heart. Each week, when I write to you, I weigh my words carefully as I endeavor to share personal insights with you that hopefully encourage you greatly. You see, when I started Wholetones in 2014, the first people that enjoyed my music were friends and family. After an amazing response when Wholetones was released, I realized quickly that I had made new friends, in countries I haven't even visited, hence…a Wholetones family. And that’s how you, my friends became the Wholetonians! And that leads us to today’s musing: I Get By (with a little help from my friends).
In 1967, The Beatles released the song “I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends.” I never forgot the title of that song, or what it meant to me. We truly need each other, and all of us need a little help from time to time.
Then in 2000, a wonderful film called “Pay It Forward” hit the theaters with an amazing message–commit random acts of kindness! You see, it is always more blessed to give than it is to receive. If we truly love our neighbor as we love ourselves, extraordinary things happen. What a world it would be if everyone tried to “outgive” each other!
All of us at Wholetones are constantly trying to “overdeliver,” to make your experience with us something special. And I want to thank all of you who took the time to take part in our recent survey. The results were very helpful, and our amazing customer care team was elated to learn that you LOVE working with them!
Now, let me be totally transparent. As I mentioned in a previous email, 2019 was a very difficult year for us. Over the years we have depended on social media to get the Wholetones message out to the world. In 2019, Facebook and Instagram changed their algorithms and began “shadow banning” many companies in the health and wellness industry. This calculated attack directly and severely sabotaged our ability to communicate via social media. Unfortunately, this practice has continued into 2020, even causing the reach of my personal Facebook timeline to be greatly diminished. So in a nutshell, new people are not getting to see our social media posts as they once did.
So today I am coming to you for help…I honestly have nowhere else to turn. Word of mouth is very powerful when people get behind a cause. Right now, my message is being squelched by the two biggest social media outlets (btw, Facebook owns Instagram too!) but the good news is…they can’t silence YOU!
Here’s what you can do to help me right now. If you “Like, Subscribe, and Share,” it will make a huge difference in spreading the healing of Wholetones. There are four actions below.

Friend, my voice isn’t being heard at the moment, so I need to ask you to please be my voice right now…word of mouth can turn the tide, I wouldn’t ask you if I could do it by myself.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! (I am thanking you in advance because…I get by with a little help from my friends!)
Until next time…
