Introducing empowr countries

Hello everyone,

 

Turn on the news

All you see is political chaos.

People everywhere are feeling insecure economically.

 

It’s going to get worse. Much worse.

Despite whatever people are getting emotional about at any moment, the major underlying cause is that:

        Millions of jobs are being wiped out by software and automation…

… depriving many of income, basic goods and services, and purpose.

The march of software and automation is not slowing down. It’s only accelerating.

 

The owners of the software companies are gaining all the power and wealth

While everyone is distracted by whatever the media companies succeed at getting us worried about, an important fact is being missed:

Billions of people are -- slowly but surely -- becoming slaves to a small handful of people: Those that control the software and automation.

Introducing empowr countries

 

We must demand control

As more and more of our information, communications and income opportunities move to digital platforms…

… we will want, need, and demand more control over those platforms.

 

But they won’t give it to us

They are accustomed to having all the wealth and control. 

They believe they deserve to have all of it.

 

We must fight back

In the last century, millions of lives have been lost in the battles (such as World War II) to win freedom from fascist, communist, totalitarian, and other types of centrally-controlled systems.

We don’t question the cost of those wars. It was never a choice.

Here, too, we must find a solution to win our freedom.

 

A solution

A digital platform is needed that:

    A) Doesn’t take investor capital
    B) Can provide its citizens everything they need to create a comprehensive economy
    C) Pushes control and power to its citizens

 

Let’s take a closer look at A, B and C.


A)  A platform is needed that doesn’t take investor capital…

… so, the platform has the opportunity to belong to its users (its citizens) instead of a small group of wealthy investors & founders

This is why empowr exists.

This is why, YOU – all of us – the entire empowr community -- has been working so hard and patiently to make this successful -- one issue, one feature, one bug at a time.

 

B)  A platform is needed that can provide its citizens with everything they need to create a comprehensive economy

Together, we’ve come a long way.

You invented a lot of what enables social media work. View our patents here

I say, “You invented” because virtually all our ideas came from the community of citizens and success coaches.


And despite our complete lack of capital and resources, today empowr is the first and only platform to have built and integrate ALL the things it takes to create a comprehensive digital economy:

Social network (feed, communication systems)
Marketplace (products, services, product sharing, auction/fixed-price, photo-bidding, one-off/recurring revenue)
Currency, micro-billing and maturity
Transparent socio-economic levels and system
Scalable educational system
Credit system
Reputation system
Transportation system (next phase launching soon)
Collateral system (needed for product sharing and transport)
Political system
Work flow (circle of trust, daily goals)
Scalable dispute management

To be clear, empowr is NOT the only platform doing each or any of the above.

In each category, there are other players – some of which are doing a better job than empowr is in their category.

They all got built with investor capital, so they could move faster.


But still, thanks to the community, empowr is still the first and only platform on the planet to have successfully built and have integrated ALL of the above systems.

Without all of these features, an economy like we’re envisioning together isn’t possible.

As a result, empowr is best positioned to quickly ramp up to become the leading digital (and then non-digital) economy of the world.

The others are moving in that direction, just not fast enough, given the complexity and difficulty of building and integrating all of those systems.

We must continue to quickly improve all these systems and ramp up our marketing efforts.


C)  The platform must voluntarily push power and control to its citizens

The empowr engineering team is working to give you the power to form local countries, discuss and set the policies and laws, vote and elect your leaders and judges, and control the platform at a local level.

Last week, we discussed the reasons behind this approach. For a refresher, go here.

Of course, the empowr team will always be available to support you.

 

As you know, we have a lot to do.

There are so, so many features, issues, and bugs you are asking us to resolve, and we are extremely motivated to do that.

We are simply humbled that you choose to believe in us. We feel lucky to continue having the opportunity to serve you.

The next step now -- to giving you more power and control -- is to enable you to create and join empowr countries.

 

Today, we’ll discuss: 

  • How to create an empowr country
  • Accessing your country account
  • How to join a country
  • How to find countries
  • What you should focus on now?
  • What’s next?
  • The Mission Wheel
  • What powers should countries have?
  • We need your input

       

    How to create your own empowr country

To establish your own empowr country, there are several steps that need to be taken.

The first step is to create a “pre-country”.

The primary power of pre-countries is to give country founders a platform to discuss their beliefs and values with other empowr citizens. In that manner, empowr citizens can decide if they wish to join that pre-country.

As a pre-country, you can begin discussing important topics and issues, and policies that you’d like to implement as a country.

Once a pre-country has had enough people join (more on this soon), they will shift from their pre-country status into full empowr country status – which will open-up a wide-range of controls for the citizens of that country.

To create a pre-country, simply visit the Communities page, select “empowr country”, and then click “Create your empowr country”

Introducing empowr countries

·         Country name

·         What’s your country’s purpose or mission?

·         What are the shared beliefs and core values?

·         Why should people join your country?

·         Do new citizens need to be approved before joining your country?

o    By selecting “Yes” for this option, the country’s founders will need to manually approve all citizens from joining by adding them as friends. This functionality will be updated further soon.

·         List your country’s founders (add up to 8 people)

o    Note: Founders will have the ability to log into the country account and have access to many of the controls that countries will have. Choose your founders wisely.

 

Introducing empowr countries

Always do your best to make sure that the information you provide is clear and detailed, so that potential citizens are more likely to join your country. When you’ve added the information, click “Submit”

You can then review all the information you submitted to ensure that it’s accurate. Once you’re ready, click “Create Pre-Country”, and your pre-country will be created.

Introducing empowr countries

 

Your country profile

At the top of your pre-country’s profile, all of the information about your country will be displayed for other citizens to view and learn more about what you are hoping to accomplish by forming your empowr country.

Introducing empowr countries

 

Accessing your country account

As a founder of a country (or pre-country) you will have the option to switch back and forth between your account, and your country’s account, by either clicking the link at the top of your profile page (while signed into your country)…

Introducing empowr countries

… or by going to the Communities page, clicking on “Communities I Admin” and clicking on your country (while signed into your personal account).

Introducing empowr countries

 

How to join a country

Citizens can join countries (or pre-countries) by simply clicking “Join country” on the country’s profile.

There is no limit to the number of pre-countries that any empowr citizen can join, however, once one of those pre-countries has established full empowr country status, each citizen of that pre-country will become an official citizen of that country and removed from any other pre-countries they had previously joined.

Introducing empowr countries

 

How to find countries

The ability to create a country was just launched last week, and already over 150 pre-countries have been established by empowr citizens.

To view them, simply visit to the Communities homepage, and notice the new filter at the right. Pull that down and choose “empowr country”, and you will then see a list of existing countries and pre-countries.

Introducing empowr countries

 

What should you focus on now?

Very soon, we will announce exactly what criteria is needed for a pre-country to become a country. Before we announce that, we need to determine that with your input (more on that below).

In anticipation for that announcement, if you’re interested in creating or joining an empowr country, we believe you should now focus on TWO things:

1.       Create and grow (or join) your pre-country as quickly as possible

Now that you can begin creating pre-countries, you should be focused on getting as many productive citizens to join your pre-country as possible. 

Note: Countries that have provided clear and detailed information, will likely get more country citizens, compared to countries without.

 

2.       Continue increasing your Mission Points every day

empowr citizens earn Mission Points by hitting their Daily Goals and successfully selling products and services (that are marked as “Item Received” or “Service Received” by customers).

Going forward, your Mission Points will determine your voting power, as well as your potential stock option ownership. I imagine that the countries will also use Mission Points as their primary way of deciding who is entitled to how much (in AMCO cash outs) but of course that will be your decision.

Countries whose citizens have the combined most Mission Points will become the strongest, most productive countries. 

You’ll want to focus on earning more Mission Points to ultimately strengthen the country you decide to create or join.  Mission Points will be the most important factor in determining when a pre-country qualifies to become a country.

To see your current Mission Points, just roll over your all-time Daily Goals badge on your profile:

Introducing empowr countries

 

What’s next?

Soon:

  • We will announce what is required for pre-countries to become countries, after we’ve had a chance to digest your opinions, thoughts, and ideas on this, below.
  • You will have the ability to post to the pre-country profile that you are a citizen of, to help get your pre-country more attention.  
  •  A country leaderboard based on Mission Points will be launched – so you can compare countries (and pre-countries) based on their Mission Points and other metrics.
  • Important stats and data will be added to each country profile page (i.e. number of citizens, cumulative Mission Points for all citizens, average Mission Points for citizens, etc.).
  • Official countries will be provided an AMCO cash out tool, with which they can view each citizen’s performance statistics, decide how to distribute cash outs, and apply (distribute) those AMCO cash outs.
  •  The Circle of Trust loop will be removed from the country profile page, since countries will not earn like regular empowr citizen accounts, and the founders will not want the country to be closing loops with people.  Note: I have been informed that this has now launched.

Stay tuned for these upcoming updates.

 

The Mission Wheel

While we’re in this transitionary period – before countries become responsible for AMCO cash outs -- be on the lookout for the Mission Wheel:

Introducing empowr countries

What is the Mission Wheel? The Mission Wheel is a fun way to reward and distribute prizes to our best citizens, who are working hard to achieve the empowr mission. Prizes includes free shopping, earnings, and cash (AMCO cash outs).

What is the purpose of the Mission Wheel? The purpose is to reward those citizens most responsible for building the empowr economy (and therefore most responsible for achieving the mission) without creating a sense of entitlement for cash, an objective recently discussed at length.

When might it appear? It can appear as soon as you hit your Daily Goal.

Who’s eligible? Blue Power Users and above.

How often does it appear? It’s randomly set to appear. All Blue Power Users (and higher power levels) have a date already set by the system. If they hit their Daily Goal that day, it will appear. If they don’t, that specific opportunity will be lost.   

After it appears, what can I do? Spin it now, or if you’re not feeling lucky today, tell it to come back in exactly X days (you set X).

Any other choices? Set the spin speed (slow, medium, or fast) and even tell it when to stop. Or, don’t tell it to stop and, after about 30 seconds, it will stop on its own.

What happens when it stops? Your prize is instantly revealed.

Do I always win something? No. Sometimes you land on “Sorry”. The good news? This gives you more time to further build up your Mission Points which makes it so, the next time you see the Mission Wheel, the prizes on it will be even larger. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

After I spin, whether I win something or not, what happens next? The system picks a new totally random future date, which could be as early as the next day.

What happens if I hit my Daily Goal on the chosen date? You are presented with the Mission Wheel, and you get to spin again.

What happens if I do NOT hit my goal on that date? You lose that spin. The system will then pick a future date for you, that you can look forward to.

What are the amounts on the wheel based on? Your Mission Points earned in the last 30 days. The higher your Mission Points (earned in the last 30 days) the higher the amounts.

How do I earn 30-day Mission Points? Your number of Daily Goals hit, multiplied by the number of sales (where the product or service you sold was marked “received” by the customer in the last 30 days)

 

What powers should countries have?

As a reminder, the objective of empowr countries is for you to gain the freedom and opportunity to self-govern and have control over the decisions that most affect your life. The alternative is for empowr to continue to make these decisions for you, which is not as likely to result in optimal decisions for you.

As a country, some of the powers that we believe will be needed include the ability to:

  • Vote and elect your country’s leaders and judges
  • Create community and commerce rules and procedures
  • Decide how AMCO cash outs will be distributed. (Normal cash outs will remain unaffected)
  • Choose what opportunities should be opened to new citizens at various stages of their citizen process
  •  Control Success Coach hiring, training, managing and auditing
  •   Launch and control billing platforms
  •   Enforce citizen penalties, suspensions, and removals


We need your input

What should pre-countries need to do or have, to become countries?

How many Mission Points should be required before a pre-country becomes a country?

What other powers do you believe that countries should have?

Which powers are most important (IE what should empowr work on designing and developing for you first)?

 

Again, if you’re just joining the conversation regarding countries, I highly recommend that you read last week’s post on the topic of countries.

Any questions? We’re here for you.

 

Yours truly,

 

Brian Woosley
Your president

It's getting more exciting. I suggest that a pre-country becomes a Country when it hit 100,000 mission points with 100 members that already garnered individual mission points. I would suggest to add more founders, maybe upto 10.

I think 1 million points is a good number for mission points to become a country.

Will there be a separate marketplace for each country or will there be just the one we have right now?

Will the countries be allowed to access to source code to build features to enhance the platform for their citizens or could they hire the empowr team to do it for them?

There are three apps we'd also like to develop to help with training, marketplace and bringing in outside cash revenue to support the country until it's fully established.

Will there be an assigned empowr rep to be the go-between for the countries?

The same goes for a tec person.

How close is the empowr team to the third payment gateway?

Can the present system track dual currency, such as cash and let's say empowr dollars?

I want to suggest that in future all empowr citizens have the opportunity to freely switch from one country to another, if something does not suit them in any country, because I believe that every citizen of empowr should feel comfortable in terms of his personal Beliefs. Such competition between countries will influence the improvement of governance within each country, which in turn will also affect the growth of the empowr economy.

"Money - as a perfect committed value, creating perfect systems for obtaining them"

I am sure that the most interesting is ahead, the main thing is that the countries had priority in training people, and did not fill their pocket, at the expense of not knowing the rules of the game of their residents. Everyone needs money, we are all here for them, just remember that we are people. Friends.

I understand perfectly what you are doing and why you are doing it, I'm not interested in glasses, I'm interested in the approach to people letting people work on the platform, 80% and maybe more, are focused on sales. But sales are just a type of income, the main thing is quite different, and I'm worried about what percentage of people understood the concept of the network? After all, this percentage depends on the success of any organization, understanding what is happening and what to do

Empowr is a country with in itself with its own hidden application laws. Having a option to have a precountry will separate the empowr economy just due to that precountrys mission, shared beliefs and core values.

Delilah Jones

Michael, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts here. Please let me know if I'm misunderstanding your point at all. empowr itself is not a country, it is a platform that enables commerce and networking to occur. This new countries feature will not limit commerce or social interaction between empowr citizens. You will still be able to buy/sell/share/provide services from/for anyone on empowr (in whatever range you set of course). The empowr team recognizes that we are not able to satisfy the needs of a platform that is so diverse. This new Countries feature will give YOU the ability to make these decision the way YOU see most fit. The empowr team will always be present and helping each countries leaders throughout the process in whatever way they need. I hope this helps address your point but please reply back if I missed something!

Patric De Nooijer

Great news, and a big step forward,
That the positive part, then the part that is coming back every month

I pay
I pay my fees on time, month after month, year after year
I am fully optimized
I have paid $100K and i am at platinum level
Every day i qualify and did not miss one day
I have all my products send and item received ( Still sending my products, paid from private money outside Empowr)

And for doing this all, you taking away my shopping money, limited my account to pay with paypal, don't give me my daily raise in shopping money and no Amco to pay for new products and shipping cost.
The 17th i powered up and till now, it shows this message:

You're currently limited to spending $28.21 in the marketplace from your empowr balance because that is all the profits you have at this moment. As your profits increase, so will your ability to spend.
and yes i spinned the wheel i won $101, only i got $93
and there is $28.21 left, but nothing is coming in?

I get a lot of message from people that even they qualify and put products in the store they will not deliver anymore and there were also a lot of people that deleted their account.

So please fix the problem, every month i do a bug report, no responds
If you want to keep Sellers who deliver their products which are paid with cash from outside Empowr, then these are the people that needs to be rewarded, they are the backbone of Empowr, and if you rip that out, it will take a long time to heal.
I can only hope that in a Democratic Forum you also show messages like this so others can learn and recognise if they have the same trouble, what needs to be solved.

Delilah Jones

Patric, thank you for taking the time to share your concerns here. I see your post just fine! :) It is important to note, you are always paid for your completed sales with empowr earnings. You can use these earnings to continue to make more purchases in the marketplace, for services, transport, etc. AMCOs were introduced as an extra reward, for those who contribute to the economy (based on what the economy needs at any given time). They have never been intended as a means of receiving 100% cash for your sales (again, you are paid in empowr earnings for your sales). This countries feature is to allow YOU the ability to pick who received AMCO cash outs for qualifying actions or activities that YOU decide, not the empowr team. Please revisit the last blog post for more on that (http://posts.empowr.com/xv9w8). The empowr team is aware that we will never be able to satisfy the needs of a platform as diverse as this one so this switch to countries, enabling the community the ability to decide, was not only necessary it just seemed to make sense. Please feel free to comment back if there are any ideas or features you feel should be included in countries!

Dearest President Brian and empowr staff,
Good morning!
I am very for this new announcement.
I am just an ordinary member founded by former President Martin so, it is his turn to do the best as a founder.We will just assist
help and give him some ideas for the improvement of our pre-country.
May I suggest that before finalization of making pre-country as a country, an account holder shall be given the
CONFIRMATION of the said country because there are errors I myself committed on clicking so many pre-countries....
I deleted some but I think that there were still some that I didn't cancel my joining with them.
I do think think that MOST of us also DID it like I did, just an error...Please, make some ADJUSTMENTS on it.....
I am so excited what will be the effect on AMCO upon the creation of this pre-country, I am hoping and hoping for the best!
Good health, success and good luck to all of us!
May God bless us all !

Mady, thank you for sharing such kind words and your genuine thoughts! It is important to make sure that the pre-countries you are joining are potential countries you would not mind being a part of. If you go back to the communities page, you will be able to select "Communities I'm a Fan of" which will show you communities you have "fanned" or joined! I hope this helps clarify and feel free to comment back here if you have additional questions or any ideas/thoughts. Best of luck! :)

Thank You! Good News! How many Mission Points will be needed to legalize the country?

Anton, thank you for asking this question! The empowr team would love to hear what YOU think of this based on the countries already in existence. How many mission points do YOU think should make a pre-country into a Country? I look forward to your ideas if you choose to share! :)

Cassandra, we appreciate your feedback. If you go to "Communities" you will be able to sort by "empowr country" in the little drop down as detailed above. Would there be other filters you'd like to see applied? What would help you pick countries more efficiently and informatively. We appreciate your thoughts and best of luck!

It's getting more exciting. I suggest that a pre-country becomes a Country when it hit 100,000 mission points with 300 members that already garnered individual mission points. I would suggest to add more founders, maybe a total of 10 or 12 will do.

Gerald, thank you for your feedback! Those are very good numbers to aim for, I will be sure to note this for the team! :) May I ask, currently the number of founders is 8, is there a reason you feel 10-12 would be more beneficial? I look forward to your thoughts!

Gerald Belanigue

Hi Delilah, thanks for the prompt response. I had realized 100,000 mission points is quite small. I go for 1.5 million or 2 million mission points. As with the founders, we have created a pre-country already and we are more than 8 people who collaborated and organized it. Also, I am involved in a particular organization where we have G-12 or 12 leaders leading/managing people and I think it is effective. As they say, two heads are better than one, it is true but better if more and I believe 10 or 12 is the right number to get the best collaboration or team of leaders. Thanks!

Thank you for this post! That was my main concern was that the countries would be double the work for us... posting and sharing, and possibly selling.... since no one answered me in the other blog. This does answer a lot of concerns, kind of, lol. I do have another problem, not concerning countries tho, with the new marketplace features, I haven't been able to shop! Can someone please help with that? Thanks so much! Also, what do we do with the countries circle of trust in the meantime? Thank u again!

Delilah Jones

Beki, thank you for taking the time to post here! I actually did reply to you on the last blog! It was just earlier today! I'm sorry for the delay! As for the countries circle of trust, Brian noted above that that is a feature we will be removing shortly so do not worry about closing the loop as your country.
You mentioned having issues shopping in the marketplace? Could you detail what the problem specifically is? The engineers fixed a few issues over the weekend that the community pointed out. I look forward to your reply!

Beki

Ok thanks! I haven't been on empowr too much yet today! I'm not sure what the issue with the marketplace exactly.... I'm unable to buy or bid. Everything else seems fine, I can list with no problem. But nothing happens when I try to make bids or purchase. I can't do from the marketplace or directly from anyone's page directly.
I wil check the other blog, but most likely this announcement answered my post! :). I will still wait and see what happens with more info before joining or making a country, but, it is looking more appealing! Thank you for your time!

El problema en las compras , es que cuando abres el anuncio no expecifica donde se envia el producto, si en cada articulo que queremos comprare , tenemos que escribir al vendedor es una locura , antes decia claramente donde el vendedor envia el articulo , ahora no . Espero que esto sea corregido por el bien de los compradores y por el bien de los SC ya que se pondran disputas por este motivo mas de una vez . Un saludo y gracias

The one thing that would really help me answering people questions if they set some sort of minimum number of people/mission points or should I say bar to aim for when thinking about creating their own country.

It's the number one question I get asked right now, as people are asking can I just create a country for my family, my close friends or just a small group of 20 people, since you only need eight to lead it.

If it's going to be a high number a lot of these people will have a very hard time reaching that number and if they knew that at the start it would really help them in deciding if they want to create a new country or support another country with the same ideas and goals.

Ii would be great to help set these people up for success from day one.

Trever, thank you for sharing your thoughts! However this is something I'm going to turn back on you! Keep in mind this feature is FOR the community so we would love to hear what your thoughts are! What number should be the "magic" number of mission points in your opinion? Should there be a minimum amount of people set? It's important to note that daily goals and item/service received sales will help increase your number of mission points AND will help up your chances of seeing the Mission Wheel. I look forward to your thoughts and best wishes!

Hello Delilah
The first thing I'll do is break it down into two to three categories and you must meet the minimum in each category.
Mission points alone would create a lopsided environment as were only looking at 100 countries to start.

I've been approached to form a very selective country based on the fact we've got high mission points already. I'm over 60,500 and it's about to get even higher. I turned them down to create a country that welcomes everyone, as I believe every person when you give them the right tools and resources can be a very successful and we may be a little slower at the start but we'll pass them in the long run.

Five categories

#1 Number of the citizens should be at least 500, empowr mission is all about working together, so people looking at starting a country focus should be on that, recruiting people. Just like I'm doing with this post.

500 is an easy number to achieve if they're serious about building a country for the people rather than themselves. JC said there might be only 100 countries to start and that would only cover 50,000 people.

For anyone that's really serious and passionate about starting their country and can't make that goal of 500 tell them to talk to me and I'll help them. We're here to support one another.

#2 Mission points should be part of it by all means and should be their own category. That should be around 500,000 to a million if you add up everyone in their country. 500 times 1000 is 500,000 so it's pretty easy to achieve when you go for the numbers.

#3 They need to require a minimum of at least one person who's a coach or has been a coach in good standings before they left, to help them with the training at the start or else empowr's overworked staff is going to be even more overworked as they try to help them every step of the way with their training. Education of their citizens is the key to their success and empowrs overall success.

#4 Their goals must be realistic based on the present platform and it's capabilities. Dreams will only tax the system and slow it down as it will pull on empowrs staff to deal with a country that's out to lunch so to speak. The system is very complex and one little tweak here or there can cause the whole system to crash. They need to have a grip on what's realistic, what's possible and exactly what do they have to work with right now.

The majority of that knowledge is out there right now within all the amazing people on the system and can be easily attained by them recruiting people for their country.

#5 I'll get back to you on that one \ (•◡•) / I've got a few more things to test out with the amazing people in my country and those that I'm helping.

Thanks Brian
I and almost all alert citizens were waiting eagerly for this announcement. At last, our anxieties end with a happy surprise. Really, Great are the people, who are thinking day and night and inventing such new way of attractions and happiness for the empowr citizens. I salute them and that also standing salute.
Interesting feature country and more interesting 'Mission wheel prize'.
This 'Mission wheel Prize/ will be a real reward for the citizens, who are hitting daily goal regularly and looking daily to their cashout page. Hope this will put a smile on them definitely. Long live Brian.

Arjit, your kind words are so wonderful to read! Focus on hitting your daily goals as consistently as possible and your chance may be just around the corner! :) Please feel free to comment back here if you have any ideas you'd like us to see or features you feel would be great to incorporate. Best wishes!

Thanks Delilah
You have cleared almost all questions, that we would ask.
Suggestions, if you will like to listen. Everyone will give as per his requirement. I also like to suggest that, if not at all throughout the months, if anyone is missed the prize! Just try to keep a consolation prize, if possible. I will try by best, definitely. But as this is a lottery, I may not avail a chance to see the wheel, but something consolation will satisfy me and encourage me for the next month.
This is just a suggestion, not a decision or imposition.
Thanks again

How many Mission Points should be required before a pre-country becomes a country?
I would suggest to have a minimum of 1M points at least to qualify for a pre-country to exist... we need to minimize the pre-countries as well in the selection process of its members...this will definitely give them a better idea or will give them enough time which pre-country to join. I think, the final list of pre-countries should be trimmed down as well so we're left only with choices of a possible list of performing countries

Wilyn, thank you for sharing your thoughts. You make very valid points and we appreciate you listing the reasoning as well. I will be sure to add this to the list of possible options! Feel free to comment back here if you have any further ideas or feature thoughts. Thank you for your continued support of empowr!

Thank you for taking the time to comment here! Really focus on completely daily goals because you never know when the Mission Wheel may appear! :) Completing sales will help boost your Mission points as well which will help accelerate your way to becoming a country! By interacting with citizens from time to time, are you speaking of as your country? Keep in mind we will enable posting on pre-countries walls shortly to help with the social aspect of the platform. Best of luck to you!
