The Scout Guide Saint Louis Volume Four Offering a Resource to Support Local Businesses in Pandemic Recovery

The Scout Guide Saint Louis

The Scout Guide gives St. Louisans a resource to identify the “best of local,” which is now more important than ever as we continue to navigate this pandemic.

The Guide breathes life into the stories of entrepreneurs, artists, restauranteurs, and health/wellness providers throughout Saint Louis, showcasing the area’s vibrancy, resiliency, and creativity.”

— Stacey Goltermann

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2021 / — The Scout Guide Saint Louis, a city-guide publication featuring a curated selection of the best St. Louis entrepreneurs, business owners, artists, health/wellness providers, and more, launches V4 in October, marking the fourth year of publishing for the Saint Louis branch of The Scout Guide under editor and owner, Stacey Goltermann. The 2021 release of V4 marks an important opportunity for the region to shop and support local businesses as they continue to recover from the pandemic.

The Scout Guide Saint Louis is a major connector between the “best of local” and the Saint Louis community, helping people find the unique and special offerings in our city. In addition to the print edition, The Scout Guide features scouted businesses on a digital lifestyle guide, which launched in 2020 to provide opportunities for businesses to share important information and showcase their offerings to a wider national audience during the pandemic. The Scout Guide blog and social media platforms round out the effort to amplify these one-of-a-kind local businesses.

“This year we had interest from the widest variety of industries yet…and members wanting to collaborate for exposure,” said Goltermann. “The Guide breathes life into the stories of entrepreneurs, artists, restauranteurs, and health/wellness providers throughout Saint Louis, showcasing the area’s vibrancy, resiliency, and creativity. This year, my passion for helping businesses thrive takes on new meaning as we emerge from the pandemic. We’ve blurred the lines between former issues’ members and V4 members so that more connections can be made throughout 2021 and beyond. It’s all about helping the community.”

The Scout Guide Saint Louis V4 features 62 scouted businesses across a wide range of industries from home decor and real estate to dining, healthcare, interior design, marketing, and entertainment. With each new volume, the guide has become a first stop for Saint Louisans looking for a trusted vendor.

Goltermann noted that this year saw a surge in wellness and healthcare members, a trend she attributes to the lack of self-care people experienced during the pandemic. In addition, the spirit of St. Louis shone brightly as event companies across the region collaborated on a spread to emphasize creation instead of competition—and help each other succeed.

“In a world that is increasingly becoming focused on buying from huge corporations that offer the highest level of convenience, it’s important to learn about our small business owners,” said Scout Guide Associate Editor Amy Jo Mitchell. “While people support the dreams of these talented entrepreneurs, they reap the ultimate benefit of living in a more economically stable, vibrant community.”

The Scout Guide Saint Louis adds new businesses to its roster every year with select brands that are committed to making a positive impact in the community. Goltermann and her team are dedicated to meeting members’ needs by publishing details on events, services, and products from the scouted network on the guide’s blog and social media platforms. The Scout Guide is photographed by Joan Fisher with social media oversight by Blake Van Patten Hunt. Find The Scout Guide Saint Louis online at and on Instagram @TSGSaintLouis.

Escape Mocktails Launches Low Calorie Mocktails

Escape Mocktails Alcohol Free Scotch

Escape Mocktails Alcohol Free Tequila

LAS VEGAS, NV, USA, August 31, 2021 / — With the rise in non-alcoholic drinks, people may be drinking to their health. Not drinking alcohol comes with many health benefits, including consuming something that has less calories. For many alcoholic free beverages, they have less calories than their alcoholic version. 

Escape Mocktails, creator of 14 non-alcoholic beverages, has 9 drinks that are less than 35 calories per serving. They serve both non alcoholic version of popular mocktails and popular spirits. An alcoholic spirit has 70 calories for 1 oz. serving size.  Compare that to Escape Mocktails alcohol free spirits, many of them have 35 calories or less for 2 oz of product. For example, Escape Mocktails alcohol free Scotch has 35 calories for a 2 oz serving. The alcoholic version of a Scotch has around 97 calories for a 1.5 oz serving.

The best way to drink on a diet would be to reach for a non-alcohol beverage.  Think of a situation that involves friends out drinking at a bar.  

Let’s look at a strong IPA beer. It has 200-300 calories a serving. While a sugary mixed drink can have 150-250 calories a serving.  One drink many times turns into 2.  Then, add on fried bar food to munch on and it is a 1,000 calorie addition to what has already been consumed for that day. Escape Mocktails Cadillac Margarita has 20 calories for a 2 oz serving while a regular Cadillac Margarita has 160 calories.

Contributor Ester Ellis from  says that, “beverage choices are just as important as food choices.  Drinking sugary beverages can contribute unnecessary calories.”

Here are some tips on how to cut back on alcohol and calories: 
– Choose drinks that are made with real fruit juices. For example, with a margarita, why not add in some fresh squeezed orange juice, lemon juice and lime juice. That provides the sugar naturally, from the juice.
– Savor the drink. This will cut back on the amount ordered.
– Eat before spending the day celebrating with friends. Choose healthy options at home to fill up on to avoid the temptation of ordering fries, nachos and jalapeño poppers
– Add sparkling flavored water to a drink of choice. This is a great way to get the bubbly added in and the extra flavor, without the calories.  Bubbly water has less calories than soda.

The Sales Control Plan Sets Standard for Sales Enablement

SalesPulse Illustration from Sales Control Plan Mangement

Accurate Training Trends and Efficiency Ratings from CRM

The sales control plan management platform is the solution for all B2B selling challenges.

Sales leaders usually hire to solve talent problems, and choose a brand of CRM to solve process problems. Two of the biggest mistakes made when managing a sales force.”

— Edward Henry

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, August 31, 2021 / — Imagine if you were able to see exactly where every opportunity is at in your pipeline. We have experienced those long-winded sales stories that still did not add up to a closed sale, or even determined what needed to be closed. Sales managers are in the dark when it comes to seeing where the opportunities are in the organization’s pipeline. This has been the reason for most of the sales waste that many companies struggle to identify.

As a leader we want those around us to succeed. It reflects well on our own efforts, but more importantly, on the organization. Sales Training is an excellent way of building relationships and supporting your team with all the necessary resources and tools that they require to succeed. You can easily create goodwill while simultaneously creating accountability amongst your team.

Sales Control Plan Management is a management and training resource that provides sales leaders, and the salesforce with everything they need to manage, train, onboard, and reference. It is the ultimate resource for sales intelligence. It is time to make real time solutions in real time.


Training & Adoption

As the world changes around us, so has the way we learn and expand our skills. Sales Control Plan Management’s sales waste assessment identifies the sales waste and sales operation deficiencies in the sales organization. The results of the assessment provide the accurate roadmap to achieve highest standard for sales training and CRM adoption success.

Sales Control Plan

There are so many elements to manage when it comes to supervising a sales force. Sales Control Plan allows you to work with transparent metrics that help you to clearly see everything in your entire pipeline. You know exactly where to spend you time and resources for optimum sales management success. After implementation of baseline metrics, Sales Control Plan Management will provide the workflow automation that ensures your sales reps do not miss any opportunities.

There has never been a better management system that integrates with all brands of CRM to provide the highest level of accountability and sales intelligence throughout the entire sales force.

There is no more training on random selling methodologies or skill development. Sales Control Plan provides accurate training metrics which are accessed from actual CRM activity. Companies will eliminate massive training waste by training specifically in the area where the sales rep or sales force is struggling. Sales Control Plan solves every organization’s most costly selling challenges.

Benefits of Sales Control Plan Management

• Improved Customer Engagement
• Reduced Sales Waste
• Eliminate opportunities from going COLD!
• Sales Force Accountability – Management Accountability – Customer Accountability
• No more missed follow up calls
• No more missed deadlines on sales deliverables
• No more inactivity
• Complete pipeline visibility
• Simple onboarding of new hires saving money on training and resources.
• Progressive evaluation and sales analytics that produce accurate training scope based on CRM and selling practices.
• Real Time is REAL TIME
• CRM integration to make sure that learning requirements are triggered based on CRM performance metrics.

Semen cuscutae neuroprotective benefits include helping to protect nerve cells against damage, degeneration, or impairment of function.

Semen cuscutae is a powerful antioxidant. We selected it as one of the global extracts we sell because it supports sexual, reproductive, brain, and central nervous system health.”

— Michael Van der Linden, Owner of Linden Botanicals

DENVER, CO, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2021 / — Recent scientific studies published in more than a dozen peer-reviewed journals suggest that the Semen cuscutae plant may provide substantial support for brain health, central nervous system health, sexual health, and a healthy reproductive system. The studies appear in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Journal of Ethnopharmacology, and Oncotarget, among several others.

Also called Tu Si Zi and Dodder Seed, Semen cuscutae is the seed of a vine used in traditional Chinese medicine to invigorate the kidneys, nourish the liver, and improve eyesight. The Semen cuscutae plant is a nootropic, and it has a high flavonoid content and strong antioxidant properties. The plant exhibits an immunosuppressive effect on dendritic cells and attenuates dendritic cell function, which also suggests it has the potential to support the treatment of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.

Some highlights of the neuroprotective benefits and other health benefits Semen cuscutae extract has shown:
• It shows neuroprotective effects and has shown potential to protect brain health.
• It may protect against oxidative damage and neuroinflammation.
• It may support treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease.
• It may help rescue damaged brain synapses.
• It may help alleviate memory loss by rescuing caspase-3-mediated synaptic damage in Alzheimer’s disease treatment.
• It has shown protective activity against induced memory deficit, cholinergic dysfunction, and oxidative damage.
• It shows immune support and anti-fatigue effects.
• It may improve the ability to tolerate cellular oxygen depletion.
• It may suppress allograft rejection via distinct immune mechanisms.
• It may invigorate the reproductive endocrine function.
• It may support treatment for male sterility and raise the success rate in artificial insemination.

"Semen cuscutae is a powerful antioxidant," says Linden Botanicals owner Michael Van der Linden. "We selected it as one of the global extracts we sell because it supports sexual, reproductive, brain, and central nervous system health."

Statistically significant properties found in Semen cuscutae include adaptogenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, antioxidant, anti-senescence, cardio-protective, neuroprotective, immunomodulatory, neurotrophic, nootropic, and osteogenic.

Due to its broad-spectrum activity, Semen cuscutae has the potential to be a highly beneficial supplement to health protocols for individuals seeking to support nervous system health, hormonal balance, and sexual health or to improve optimize overall health. Numerous scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals highlight the bioactive properties of Semen cuscutae extract.

About Linden Botanicals: Linden Botanicals sell the world’s healthiest teas and extracts, including Semen cuscutae, Cistus incanus, and Phyllanthus niruri (Chanca Piedra).

Project N95 Partners with Google to Allow N95 Respirators on Shopping

Project N95 logo

Project N95 logo

Unavailable since early 2020, N95 masks may now be listed on Google in the U.S as part of Google’s collaboration with nonprofit Project N95

We are here to bridge the gap for people who need trusted, highly protective masks and PPE in order to live and work in their communities safely.”

— Anne Miller, Executive Director, Project N95

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2021 / — Google and Project N95 – a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization – have partnered to open access to N95 respirators on the Google Shopping tab in the United States, widening access to authentic N95 respirators and enabling users to discover certified N95 masks via Project N95.

In March of 2020, Google responded to the shortages of respirators that were vital for healthcare workers serving on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic by placing a temporary restriction on advertising N95 masks. This was done to avoid exacerbating the supply shortages frontline healthcare workers faced and to protect consumers from counterfeit products on the market.

While the COVID-19 pandemic is still impacting the nation, constraints on the supply chain for masks have eased. To make these highly protective N95s available to consumers yet ensure that the products offered are of high quality, Google has partnered with nonprofit Project N95.

Project N95 has been serving healthcare, frontline workers and the general public since March 2020. Established as a rapid response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the nonprofit organization has developed extensive vetting procedures, becoming the National Clearinghouse for personal protective equipment (PPE). Project N95’s established reputation as a trusted supplier of N95 respirators, COVID-19 tests, masks and other PPE will help improve access, affordability and authenticity of these critical masks.

“As the Delta variant rages, our purpose has become clearer than ever,” explained Anne Miller, executive director of Project N95. “We are here to bridge the gap for people who need trusted, highly protective masks and PPE in order to live and work in their communities safely. We’re thrilled that this partnership with Google will allow us to reach and help even more people.”

Since launching in 2020, Project N95 has provided more than 9.1 million units of personal protective equipment (PPE) to healthcare workers throughout the United States, including 2 million units donated. This led to the protection of hundreds of thousands of workers in hospitals, long-term care facilities, and other healthcare centers during the COVID-19 pandemic. After adding COVID-19 test kits to its product offerings in early 2021, the organization has continued to innovate to open access and provide critical equipment where it is needed most.

As a mission-driven nonprofit, Project N95 makes it possible for everyone to access personal protective equipment and COVID-19 tests from a trusted source. To find vetted N95 respirators from verified suppliers along with other critical supplies and COVID-19 tests, visit The team is available seven days a week to support customer questions about finding the right fit and style of mask for their specific needs.

We provide a simple, easy-to-integrate service, and the only step needed to accept crypto payments is to copy a chunk of HTML code. Transactions are tied to your NOWPayments account and the API key you use for a specific purpose. We offer flexible solutions, like accepting payments in many different coins or converting all crypto assets you receive into your favorite cryptocurrency! The automatic exchange is powered by our crypto exchange service, ChangeNOW.
The platform also supports fiat conversion, and offers customized Casino solutions, Twitch donation button and a Mass Payouts solution.

Finally, we offer useful plugins to accept crypto payments on online e-commerce providers, like Shopify, Magento 2, OpenCart, WooCommerce, WHMCS, Zen Cart, PrestaShop, Ecwid and more. With our simple plugin, you can easily add a cryptocurrency payment option for the cart checkout at your online store!
