Ice dams are a common problem during the winter months, and can cause significant damage to homes and businesses.

It’s also very easy to install and requires no special maintenance. Simply place the gutter guards inside your gutters on your rooftop, and it will automatically allow water from ice melt to drain away! The system can be used on any size rooftop and will keep your gutters clean and free of ice and snow.

This new gutter guard system is a must-have for any business or homeowner in areas that experience winter weather with or without a chance of snow. It is an easy and effective way to prevent ice dams and will save you time and money in the long run. Contact SnoBlox-SnoJax today to learn more about this revolutionary new system!

What Are Gutter Guards?  

Gutter guards are devices that are placed inside gutters to prevent leaves, twigs, and other debris from clogging them. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be made from different materials such as plastic, metal, or mesh. Gutter guards keep gutters clean and free-flowing, and help to prevent water damage to your home or business.

Why Are Gutter Guards Important?  

Gutter guards are important because they help to prevent clogs in gutters. Clogged gutters can cause a number of problems, including water damage to your home or business, insect infestations, and even flooding. Gutter guards keep gutters clean and free-flowing, which helps to prevent these problems. They also prevent ice dams from forming by allowing water from melting ice and snow to drain away.

How Do Gutter Guards Work?  

Gutter guards work by preventing leaves, twigs, and other debris from clogging gutters. These guards fit inside gutters and prevent debris from falling in. This prevents clogs and keeps gutters free-flowing. Gutter guards also help to prevent ice dams from forming by allowing water from melting ice and snow to drain away instead of damming up and refreezing on the roof.

Why Are Gutter Guards Important For Snow And Ice?  

Gutter guards are important for snow and ice because they help to prevent ice dams from forming. Ice dams are formed when water from melting ice and snow dams up in gutters and then refreezes. This can cause damage to your home or business and is a major problem during the winter months. Gutter guards help to prevent this by allowing water to drain away instead of damming up.

How Do I Choose The Right Gutter Guards?  

There are a few things to consider when choosing the right gutter guards for your home or business. First, you need to decide what material you want the guards to be made from. Plastic, metal, and mesh are all common choices. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it is important to compare them before making a decision. Second, you need to decide what size guards you need. This will depend on the size of your gutters and the amount of debris they typically collect. Finally, you need to decide how many guards you need. This will depend on the length of your gutters and the number of downspouts they have.

Different Gutter Guard Material – The Pros And Cons  

Plastic Gutter Guards  

Pros: Plastic gutter guards are the cheapest option. These gutter guards are also the lightest and easiest to install.

Cons: Plastic can be easily damaged by sunlight and extreme temperatures. These gutter guards are also not as durable as other options.

Metal Gutter Guards  

Pros: Metal gutter guards are more durable than plastic guards. They are also less likely to be damaged by sunlight and extreme temperatures.

Cons: Metal gutter guards are more expensive than plastic guards. The metal ones are also heavier and more difficult to install.

Mesh Gutter Guards  

Pros: Mesh gutter guards are the most durable option. They are also the best at preventing debris from entering gutters.

Cons: Mesh gutter guards are more expensive than plastic and metal guards. Mesh is quite heavy and more difficult to install.

How Do I Install Gutter Guards?  

Installing gutter guards is a relatively simple process. First, you need to clean your gutters and remove any debris. Next, you need to measure your gutters to make sure you know the length and cut the guards to size. Finally, you need to install the guards in your gutters. You can install them by using screws, nails, or adhesive.

How Often Should I Clean My Gutters?  

Gutters need to be cleaned at least once a year to keep them free of debris. However, if you have a lot of trees near your home or business, you may need to clean them more often. This is because leaves and twigs can fall into the gutters and cause clogs. Cleaning your gutters regularly will help to prevent problems and keep your gutters working properly.

Adventures in VolunTourism: The Most Rewarding Hawai’i Vacation Experiences Not Found in Guidebooks

Hawaiʻi has always been a favorite vacation destination but most tourists don’t know that some of the best adventures NOT found in any guidebook and they may be missing out on some of the most life changing experiences that the islands have to offer that go far beyond the beaches and popular attractions.

Visitors have been eager to return to Hawai‘i to enjoy its natural beauty and the spirit of the islands rooted in native Hawaiian culture. The Hawaiian islands are legendary for their stunning natural beauty, plants and animals that exist nowhere else in the world, and the tightly knit community of 1.4 million residents that welcome visitors with the Spirit of Aloha to the tropical place they call home.

John De Fries was born and raised in Waikīkī and is the President and CEO of the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority (HTA). In recent TV interviews, he shared, “It’s time to reclaim all the things we love including travel and experience destinations on a much deeper and meaningful level. Hawaiʻi’s beautiful beaches are always a main attraction, but we have so much more to offer.”

Most visitors don’t know that the Hawaiian islands have amazing voluntourism opportunities where they can be part of a circle that enriches everything and everyone. In fact, through the Mālama Hawaiʻi Program, visitors can engage in volunteer activities working alongside members of the local community to experience Hawaiʻi on a much deeper and connected level, so they return home more rejuvenated and inspired by this unique experience

De Fries says, “Mālama means to care for and whether you’re visiting the islands or Hawai’i is your home, we have so many ways to work with our community side by side and immerse yourself in our unique land, ocean, and unique wildlife projects so that you’re not just a visitor, but you can become part of the fabric of our islands as well.”

Some of the voluntourism experiences include hiking deep into Hawai’i’s forests to plant native trees that are being permanently threatened. Also, Hawaiian monk seals, green sea turtles and coral reefs are highly endangered and visitors can get involved in projects to replant coral reefs or self-directed beach clean-up that help protect marine life. Finally, one of the world’s most famous battleships, the USS Missouri in Pearl Harbor, has a restoration project that visitors take part in to help preserve this iconic American treasure.

John De Fries concluded, “We’ve also implemented a reservation system for certain tourism “hotspots” like Lēʻahi, or Diamond Head State Monument, to distribute capacity for the well being of natural resources, visitors, and residents. Traveling to Hawai’i comes with a kuleana, or responsibility and privilege. A kuleana to not only care for the land, but for all the people and wildlife who call the islands home and we’re inviting tourists to join us in that effort.”

Hawai’i is home to unimaginable beauty and living things that inhabit Hawai’i are found nowhere else in the world and that is why it’s essential to protect the islands for future generations. To find about more about how to take a trip that gives back, visit

How a $9 E-Book Generated Over $1 Million In Sales earning Boris Musheyev The 2 Comma Club award from ClickFunnels

Queens, NY – November 5th, 2022 – Boris Musheyev Joins the 2 Comma Club. The 2 Comma Club is awarded by ClickFunnels to entrepreneurs that generate over $1 million in sales within a single sales funnel.

The funnel that won this award is for the S-Corp Tax Book. The S-Corp Tax Book picks up the slack that other accountants failed to teach so many small business owners and entrepreneurs – How to pay less in taxes using your S-Corporation legally.

This ebook was created to educate entrepreneurs on how the United States tax code is designed and how they can use it to their advantage. The ebook sells for $9 and inside are tax strategies, deductions, and benefits that any profitable business owner can use to save money on taxes.

Being given this award means more than just the dollar amount sold. It means that more entrepreneurs are choosing themselves and taking their taxes into their own hands.

“Our company’s mission is to provide a continuous tax planning approach to maximize savings while eliminating stress and anxiety around taxes.” – Boris Musheyev, CPA.

Boris and his firm have helped their clients save an est. $3.4 million in taxes in 2021, with an estimated average savings of $38,147 per business.

Boris is a CPA and one of the few certified tax strategists in the United States. He started his career as a tax preparer in 2005. Like all tax preparers, he put the right numbers in the right boxes and filed returns on time.

“If you have a tax preparer you do not have a tax planner” – Boris Musheyev, CPA

The tip of the iceberg was filing over 500 tax returns in three and a half months. He worked long hours and almost missed his son’s first birthday. He was burnt out and fed up that all of his clients were overpaying in taxes due to a lack of tax planning, but he was flooded with tax preparation and there wasn’t any time left for tax strategies.

He quit his job and started his own tax planning firm in October 2017.

Since then, Boris and his firm have helped other entrepreneurs understand how the tax code is designed to incentivize business owners to save money on taxes. He’s invested over $200,000 in personal growth and learning from the top tax planners in the United States.

Boris and his team work strategically around the tax code to create customized tax plans that are tailored to each individual’s situation. Just like no two snowflakes are the same, neither are two tax plans.

He believes that accounting is more than just being correct. It’s being strategic, proactive and maximizing tax savings via tax planning. He has one goal, and one goal only: to do everything in his power to debunk the tax code by educating other entrepreneurs about the power of tax planning.

Three Reasons Colleges Turn Down Top Students That Admissions Officers Won’t Reveal and How to Fix It

College may not be for everyone, but if a career in science, engineering, or medicine is the plan, a college degree is a must. The challenge is gaining admission to the elite university of choice. Now more than ever, with competition and selectivity increasing, students need to recognize the intricacies of getting their applications accepted. 

Unfortunately, most parents and students cannot fully comprehend the preparation required to get into the top colleges and universities. Sean Ma is a graduate of Columbia University and Cambridge University and also the CEO of Ma Academy. In a recent interview with KATU-TV (in Portland) he shared, “Parents and students need to know what they’re up against and how competitive admissions are. Schools like Columbia University receive over 60,000 applications each year and only accept 2,000 students. That means there’s a 97% chance you’re not getting in — even with the highest GPA and perfect SAT scores. It’s a much bigger equation.”

So how can students get a competitive edge when applying to top colleges? Ma Academy, a leader in the education consulting industry since 2008, has developed a successful track record designed to help its clients navigate these specific complexities. They have a team of Ivy League graduates and former admissions officers with the inside knowledge to give parents and students a valuable advantage. “We have helped thousands of students get into their dream schools in the United States and around the world, including Ivy League and other top colleges,” Ma shares.

#1 – In a sea of exceptional students, college applicants need more than top GPA & SAT scores — they need to differentiate themselves from the competition. When students have a strong GPA and high standardized test scores, they are usually overly confident with their college placement prospects. So, how can top applicants differentiate from other students?

It starts with being a club founder rather than a club member. Namely, students’ activities must demonstrate leadership skills, including holding positions like Class President or Valedictorian, or other significant accomplishments like getting a research paper published in a prestigious journal, launching a successful business, or achievements that garner national media attention.

#2 – Parents and students should not obsess with top ranked universities or colleges that might not be the best overall fit for them. The competition to get accepted into the top-ranking schools is indeed fierce. “It’s a delicate balance to manage expectations without killing a client’s dreams,” Ma says, “but it’s more than that, since not every student is Ivy League material when they come to us. We work with them to help them step up to their highest potential and then advise them on how to determine the school that is the best fit for them. We’ve found that even when a student gets accepted into an Ivy League university, it’s not always the best match — and the student would be much happier and more successful at another comparably prestigious college or university.”

#3 – Students need a multi-faceted approach to gain college acceptance. Filling out college applications can be stressful, but it is essential that the application is not the first step. In fact, it should be a final step since the high school career lays the foundation for a successful college application submission.

Using a fitness analogy, Sean Ma says he finds the Six-Pack Abs Approach used as a model at Ma Academy to be very effective. “Colleges are looking for students that are more than their grades, but ‘fit’ with life balance as well. They will evaluate the student’s six pack abs to determine if the applicant is the right type of student for their college brand. This approach includes an Admissions Strategy, Application Theme, Extracurricular Activities, Course Selection, Recommendation Letters, and College Essays. Do not underestimate the weight of each of these, especially when it comes to activities and the essay. Through application essays, students can show their personalities, express their passions, and demonstrate their writing skills.”

Finally, Ma wants parents to understand that social media and social gatherings can be detrimental to parents when others brag about their child’s accomplishments. “It often evolves into a comparison competition where parents start to feel as if their own child is a failure when their child is really doing well. Parents should really think about dialing back on time spent on social media and events, so they’re not tempted to unrealistically compare their child to other students.”

During the stressful college application process, working with a company that understands the system is critical. The goal of companies like Ma Academy is to guide students and their families successfully into a college that is the right fit for each student’s personal development and academic success.

Announcement: The Medicare Annual Enrollment Period Is Open | The Sosa Insurance Group

If you’re approaching retirement or looking at your proper health coverage after 65, the time has come to start thinking about enrolling in Medicare. If you’re not already on Medicare, now is the time to get your paperwork in order and sign up.

If you’re already on Medicare, this is a good time to review your coverage and make sure it still meets your needs. You may also want to consider switching to a different Medicare plan that suits your needs better.

Either way, the Sosa Insurance Group can help you navigate the Medicare enrollment process and find the best coverage for your needs.

Learn more here.

What Is Medicare?  

Medicare is a government health insurance program for people 65 and older, as well as for some younger people with disabilities.

There are four parts to Medicare:

– Part A covers hospital stays and other inpatient care requirements.

– Part B covers doctor visits, preventive screenings, and other outpatient care.

– Part C is also known as Medicare Advantage. It’s an alternative to Parts A and B that typically provides coverage for both hospital stays and doctor visits.

– Part D is prescription drug coverage.

If you have Medicare Health Plan coverage and would like to get properly informed on some upcoming changes in 2023 and review your current Medicare Health Plan to check if you have the “right” one for you, now is the time to do that. The Medicare Annual Enrollment Period starts on October 15 and ends on December 7 each year. You may also be able to sign up during a special enrollment period for those in need. This option is only available for those that have a life-changing event, such as losing your job-based health insurance.

The Sosa Insurance Group can help you understand your Medicare Health Plan options and find the best coverage for your needs.

What Paperwork Is Required To Apply For Medicare?  

To apply for Medicare, you’ll need to have your Social Security number and the date of your 65th birthday (or the date you became disabled) handy.

You can apply for Medicare online or, when you’re ready, contact Social Security to sign up by calling 1-800-772-1213. You can also visit your local Social Security office.

If you’re already receiving Social Security benefits when you turn 65, you’ll automatically be enrolled in both Medicare Part A and Part B.

How Much Does Medicare Cost?  

Medicare Part A is free if you have worked 40 quarters or 10 years and have paid into Social Security. If you have to pay for Part A, it will cost you up to $506 per month in 2023.

Medicare Part B has a standard monthly premium of $164.90 in 2023, but your actual premium may be higher or lower depending on your income.

Medicare Part C and Part D plans typically have monthly premiums, as well as other costs like deductibles and co-payments.

The Sosa Insurance Group can help you understand the costs of different Medicare plans and find one that fits your budget.

When Should You Enroll In Medicare?  

During the AEP (Medicare Annual Enrollment Period), you can make some of the following Medicare coverage changes:

– Disenroll from Medicare Advantage plan and return to Original Medicare (Part A and Part B)

– Switch from Original Medicare and enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan

– Switch from one Medicare Advantage Plan to another

The Sosa Insurance Group can help you to get ready for your enrollment. They will also be able to breakdown the plans for you and answer any Medicare-related questions.

U.S Made Roofing Fall Protection Tools Now Available At Fall Protection Distributors

Fall Protection Distributors is proud to announce that they now carry roofing tools made in the USA. These tools are of the highest quality and have been tested to meet the most stringent safety standards. With a wide selection of roof anchors, fall protection equipment, and safety accessories, Fall Protection Distributors is your one-stop shop for all your roofing protection needs. Visit the Fall Protection website today for more information.

When Is Fall Protection Required?  

OSHA recommends fall protection implementation anytime workers are at height, generally more than 6′ up.  An OSHA safety plan is vitally important for roofers working on all roof types and all roof pitches.  Steeper roofs may require special equipment and planning. It is always best to consult with a properly trained safety manager or professional when planning a project at height.  

Selecting The Right Tool For The Roof

Most fall protection equipment is designed for use with either asphalt shingles or metal roofs. Asphalt shingle roofs are the most common type of roof in the United States, so there is a wide variety of tools available for this type of roof. Metal roofs are less common, and may require more specialized fall protection anchors.  In order to maintain the waterproof integrity of the system, standing seam panels cannot have equipment mechanically fastened through the panels.  Therefore, specialized anchors fabricated specifically for standing seam must be used.  These anchor use set screws to lock onto the seams, instead of screwing through the metal.  

When working on any roof type, the first step is to make sure your safety equipment is in place before you start working on the roof. This can be done by putting on a harness, attaching a fall protection anchor to the roof.  Once your anchor is properly installed, a vertical lifeline is attached that will trail down the roof. The worker then will attach the lanyard with rope grab to the vertical lifeline. There are numerous ways of doing this, but this is the most common method. The main thing that changes for different roof types is the type of anchorage used to fasten to the roof. 

No matter what type of roof you are working on, it is always best to consult with a trained safety manager or professional before beginning any work. This will ensure that you have the right tools and that you know how to use them properly.

What Personal Safety Equipment Is A Must When Working On A Roof?  

When working on a roof, it is always best to wear safety equipment. This includes a hard hat, gloves, and safety glasses. It is also a good idea to wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt to protect your skin from the sun. If working at height, always develop a suitable OSHA safety plan that includes fall protection and a rescue plan in case of a fall.

How Do Fall Protection Distributors Do Tool Testing?  

All of the tools that Fall Protection Distributors sell are tested to meet the highest safety standards. This includes testing for durability, strength, and stability. Fall Protection Distributors is committed to providing their customers with the safest and most reliable products on the market.

All equipment, especially the roofing safety equipment like harnesses and roofing anchors are tested to be compliant with OSHA/ANSI standards.  The team at Fall Protection Distributors takes great pride in providing their customers with the highest quality products available.

For homes and businesses located in cold winter climates, snow safety is a crucial aspect of construction. When snow accumulates on roofs it can pose a risk to vent pipes, gutters, deck railings, pedestrians, vehicles and HVAC equipment.

Shingled roofs are often capable of stopping the avalanching effect. However, metal roofs do not have the same rough texture. This causes snow to simply slide quickly from the roof to the ground below. This can sometimes happen unexpectedly, posing an even greater risk to those below.

Snow Guard Innovation

Snow guards are designed to hold snow in place on the roof. This allows the snow to melt gradually. When snow can be kept in place this way, it decreases the chance of the avalanching snow causing damage or injuries.

Snow guards are known by many names. Snow birds, snow stops, and even snow cleats are just a few of the terms used to describe this innovative device that can make homes a safer place during the winter.

Differences In Snow Guards

There are a few different types of snow guards. These are generally known as snow retention systems.

Pad Style- This type of snow retention is comprised of individually mounted guards typically made of metal or polycarbonate. There are various designs to fit different panel types. These components are about 2-3” tall. The size of the components used will be based on the expected ground snow load rating for the project location. There is also a Snowbreaker style made of polycarbonate that is used to break up the snow and ice while still allowing it to slide off the roof. These are commonly used over doorways or on solar panels.

Snow Rail/Bar System- Snow rails are often used in areas where very heavy loads of snow are expected. Rail and bar systems are designed to have a clean, low profile look once installed. They can also be color matched to help them blend into the roof system.

Snow rails are often used on commercial metal roofs. These larger structures need a snow retention system that will ensure a snow avalanche does not endanger people passing below.

Snow Guards Intended Use

Snow guards are recommended for anyone with a metal roof living in a climate that expects a good amount of snowfall each year. This product is an important addition to your metal roof. This product can decrease the chances of damage or injuries on a property during the winter months.

Other Ways To Prevent Winter Damage or Injuries

In addition to the use of snow guards, there are other ways to help prevent damage to property or injuries to people during the winter months.

Snow and ice removal- Snow and ice removal from areas where foot traffic is expected is a necessary chore during the winter months. This can greatly reduce the instances of injuries on the property.

Winterization- Winterizing a property for the upcoming winter is another important step that can be taken to prevent property damage. Extreme winter temperatures can cause pipes to burst, causing flooding. This type of property damage can be complicated and expensive to repair.

Dead limb removal- It is also important that dead limbs are removed before heavy frost and snow begin to accumulate. Dead limbs on trees can fall suddenly, causing damage to property and can cause injuries to people or animals passing below.

SnoBlox-SnoJax brings innovative snow retention systems to homeowners and business owners. These products can help prevent injuries, damage, and liability during the winter months.
