Five For Friday, Aug 5th, 2022
Podcast I’m Listening To:
NPR’s “Planet Money” is one of the most popular podcasts in the world. Every week, the show tackles a different economic topic, from the history of the American dollar to the future of driverless cars. In addition to providing listeners with valuable insights into the economy, “Planet Money” is also incredibly entertaining. This episode features a real estate agent in Philadelphia who built a cryptocurrency miner into a house he was listing. With all the buzz around crypto, I had to check this out.
New Tool I’m Trying:
Undoubtedly, Facebook ads work at a reasonable cost, while digital advertising has become more expensive.

This tool from madgicx can help you make them even more cost-effective by tracking your CPC, CPA, CPM, Average Service Price, and monthly revenue goals.

Campaign I’m Checking Out:
Gogotech believes its technology can help people with reduced mobility overcome some of their daily challenges. Many electric wheelchairs are beyond the reach of everyone but the wealthy or well-insured and lack many of the features you’d expect to see in a personal electric vehicle, thanks to current technologies. Featuring advanced features and easy to purchase online with buy now pay later financing, ABBY is a high-function smart wheelchair.
New Song I’m Enjoying:
American singer-songwriter Samuel Ervin Beam, better known as Iron & Wine, was born in South Carolina. Throughout his career, he has released six studio albums, several EPs and singles, and a few download-only albums, including a live album. This song, “ Call it Dreaming, “best features Sam’s voice and gentle guitar playing. He’s always been known for his strong lyrical work, and this song is no exception. Take a listen and let it take you somewhere.
Quote of the week:
