First and foremost I pray that you are well and healthy. For those of us who have lost a loved one, friend or extended family member to COVID19, please accept my sincerest love. My great Aunt passed away just 3 weeks ago, and my great Uncle spent some time fighting for his life. I have dear friends who have shared similar tragedies, and I’m sure many of you do, too. What’s made this time a littler harder is being here in the USA whilst my family are lock-downed in the UK. The ‘Pond’ somehow feels more vast than it ever has before.
To those of you who have been affected financially, I am deeply sorry. I believe in my heart that this will subside and we will triumph. We always have and we always will.
As a Neuroscientist who studied an infectious and fatal disease during my PhD research (“Mad Cow’s disease”, or variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease), I see all too clearly the dangers that this new coronavirus has brought to our homeland and to the rest of the globe. We must stamp it out. It’s true that we face uncertain times ahead; uncertainty around the future of COVID19, uncertainty about our freedoms, uncertainty for our businesses, our jobs, our 401k’s and our wellbeing. But what unites us is that we are all in this together, King nor Queen have been spared the burden of this pandemic. Yes, each of our situations is vastly different, but we share a common hope; a hope of a world free of COVID19. And with that hope and with that unity we will triumph. Until then continue to be wise in your ways, above all else protect yourselves and your families.
How is COVID19 affecting Jonescientific?
We have been fortunate that our warehouse in Jacksonville, Florida has been able to continue its normal operations safely and with no shipment delays to our customers. We have however seen a significant disruption to our US-based manufacturing (we manufacture our product in the state of New York). However we are fortunate to have enough supply of Sophrosyne Brain stored in our warehouse to ensure smooth operations for the next 6 months.
We saw 14% of our subscribers discontinue their Sophrosyne Brain during the period of March 21- April 21, compared to an average cancellation rate of less than 2% for a normal month. We’ve also seen a dip in the number of new subscribers to Sophrosyne Brain, which is affecting our ability to ensure ongoing marketing and advertising operations. We will however power through these times and trust in restoration. I do not falter in my joy for the gift that Jonescientific has been to so many, nor do I live in fear of tomorrow. Your personal testimonies of improved mental energy, sound sleep, mental clarity, boosted memory and cognition is what keeps me going. If you are struggling financially but wish to continue using Sophrosyne, please reach out to me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org We would like to help you.
One of my favorite scriptures is this, ‘We have this Hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure’ (Hebrews 6:19). Not the hope of worldly things, but the hope of Jesus; which brings thanksgiving even in the midst of uncertainty. Thank you for being a cherished member of our Jonescientific family.
