About SunCity Advising SEO

Founded in 2011, SunCity Advising is a small and medium-sized business (SMB) oriented marketing firm committed to strategic planning, quality asset production and data-driven analytics. We set out as a start-up consulting firm from the USD MBA program assisting businesses with business plans, pitch decks and growth strategies. We quickly realized that many of our clients were in desperate need of marketing and SEO services in various highly competitive industries and markets.

From there, we developed a strategy to help the SMB community grow by developing a hands-on management approach to marketing and sales channel development in the Southern California region. We found that while many clients understood SEO and digital marketing, they did not have the tools or capabilities to derive any ROI or marketing assets from their marketing efforts. Acquiring quality tangible marketing assets require SEO industry expertise and a team dedicated to community outreach, research, and content output.

SunCity Advising is excited to remain very active with the University of San Diego community through guest lectures, student organizations and the hiring of top business students in marketing and finance. Our team of USD MBA graduates and current business students highlights our commitment to data-driven SEO strategy and forward-thinking marketing initiatives. We are a retention-based firm, obsessed with quality, data-driven results, and continuous service improvement. Find out why we've never lost a client!

Wonder’s Journey Releases Quiet Time Collection

I spy bottles made from upcycled BPA free plastic bottles, hand dyed rice, and high quality hand picked trinkets.

DENVER, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, July 18, 2019 / — The brand new Quiet Time Collection from Melody Johnson of Wonder’s Journey releases July 24, 2019. Known for helping busy parents avoid screen time struggles by providing engaging screen free play materials, Johnson’s new line consists of her favorite and most popular I spy bottles.

For the first time, Johnson has created an entire product line of I spy bottles ranging from DIY kits to bottles designed to aid in letter and number recognition. Created to be portable and quiet, Johnson’s fresh collection contains high quality interesting trinkets that children love to look for. Two different sizes give busy parents the flexibility to slip a smaller bottle into a purse or backpack for some quiet time on the go, or to use the larger bottle for some down time at home.

The collection will be exclusively sold on the website where the limited products are expected to sell out by the end of the season.

Bottles also come in a variety of rice colors, to create the perfect bottle for each little learner, regardless of skill or gender. White rice makes it easy to find the trinkets, while the rainbow or single color rice presents more of a challenge. The letter and number trinkets featured in several bottles make learning letters and numbers fun.

Her collection also includes sets and storage boxes to make collecting and storing I spy bottles even easier.

Each individual I spy bottle has its own name. A few examples are:

The Essential
Alphabet Soup
The Essential Mini
Count with Me
The DIY Essential

The Quiet Time Collection ranges in price from under $10 for a la carte DIY materials to $60 for a three bottle bundle and storage box.

Johnson is excited to introduce her fans to this new product line collection full of low tech options designed to turn learners into leaders.


For more information about the Quiet Time Collection or for an interview, please send inquiries to Media high-res photos available upon request.

Eberhard & Co. fine watches on view at Gordon McCall’s Motorworks Revival 28th Edition – August 14, Monterey Jet Center

A selection of watches from the Eberhard & Co. creations will be spotlighted for the joy of micro-mechanics lovers, as a symbol of Swiss-watchmaking excellence.

When I see an Alfa Romeo go by, I tip my Hat”

— Henry Ford

NEW YORK, NY, USA, July 18, 2019 / — Eberhard & Co. will be the protagonist in one of the most exclusive events of the glamorous Californian Summer, the Gordon McCall’s Motorworks Revival. This unparalleled summer party, organized every year by Gordon and Molly McCall for over 3’000 aficionados, is The Occasion for top brands from the watches, cars and aircrafts universes to display the best of their collections and novelties, within the fantastic context of the Monterey Jet Center.

A selection of watches from the Eberhard & Co. creations will be spotlighted for the joy of micro-mechanics lovers, as a symbol of the high Swiss-watchmaking excellence.

Guests will be welcomed by Beaugeste Luxury – the Brand’s representative in the United States – at the Eberhard & Co. booth, where the brands' significant icons will be on display, including the Chrono 4, the world's only patented chronograph with four counters in line, the 8 Jours, the stylish hand-wound classic with an 8-days patented power reserve and the Tazio Nuvolari collection. But what’s extraordinary about this occasion is that visitors will have the possibility to admire for the first time the new Eberhard “Quadrifoglio Verde," a chronograph dedicated by the Swiss Brand to the Alfa Romeo most performing models. This limited edition of 250 pieces was presented in Europe last June and is almost completely sold out, months before it will be ready to appear in the points of sale next September. Gordon McCalls VIP guests will, therefore, have a unique opportunity for securing one of the last available pieces.

The Eberhard “Quadrifoglio Verde” chronograph is a tribute to the sporting spirit that has inspired so many Eberhard creations: a unique timepiece conceived to convey all the Brand’s technical prowess and style. It boasts a generous 43mm diameter steel case housing the automatic movement, which animates three counters. Of these, the small seconds' catches the eye first: the hand is shaped like the triangular clover emblem, modern construction that gives this model its enticing look. The tachymeter scale surrounding the deep black dial, inspired by the readability of Alfa Romeo’s dashboard instruments, neatly combines all the tradition of the Eberhard & Co.’s chronographs with an automotive imprint. The satin-finished bezel and buttons contribute to the stylish balance of the case, which appears sporting and elegant in equal measure.

Just weeks after the official opening of its Museum in the historical La Chaux-de-Fonds building, Eberhard & Co. does not miss an occasion to highlight its ability to balance between its glorious past and its grand ambitions for the future.

3 Cancer-Fighting Foods Recommended by Rosemary Barclay of Old Lyme, CT

Rosemary Barclay of Old Lyme, CT recommends natural foods that cancer survivors should incorporate into their diets.

OLD LYME, CONNECTICUT, USA, July 18, 2019 / — Nutrition directly affects major areas of your life including your health, energy levels, mood, skin, immunity, and general well-being. What you eat is also directly related to your risk of developing diseases like cancer. Certain foods are associated with decreasing cancer growth, while other foods are associated with worsening the risk. For cancer survivors and those in remission, it is essential to know which foods to incorporate into your diet regularly to stay healthy.

Rosemary Barclay of Old Lyme, CT, founder and owner of Bonne Santé Wellness Center in Old Lyme, Ct., shares 3 foods for cancer survivors to add to their dinner plates.


This popular green vegetable is in the cruciferous family. Broccoli has been known to contain sulforaphane, which was shown in animal studies to reduce tumor size. Consuming vegetables in the cruciferous family may also be associated with lowering risk for colorectal cancer. Rosemary Barclay suggests adding steamed broccoli to your dinner plate, or eating it raw with dip as a snack. When vegetables are cooked, they do lose a percentage of their nutrients. Try to eat raw fruits and vegetables as much as possible. Cauliflower, cabbage, kale, bok choy and brussel sprouts are also part of the cruciferous family. Rosemary Barclay of Old Lyme, CT, suggests making a slaw of these vegetables to boost immunity and fight free radicals that often lead to cancer production.


High in fiber, folate, and protein, beans are a delicious source of nutrients. They are made of resistant starch which is not digested in the small intestine but instead used in the colon to make short-chain fatty acids. Rosemary Barclay of Old Lyme, CT explains that they are also a natural source of antioxidants from a variety of phytochemicals, which has been shown by research to reduce certain types of cancer. Beans, yellow split peas and red lentils or pulses as they are sometimes called, contain lignans and saponins, resistant starches and a different class of antioxidants that are protective against cancer. Use these pulses in soups, chillis or stews to promote protection against cancer.


This food is high in anthocyanins, a flavonoid with antioxidant properties. It can be found readily in blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, and blackcurrants. Laboratory research has shown that they not only help to treat and prevent cancer, but also slow down aging. Rosemary Barclay of Old Lyme, CT suggests washing berries very well to remove pesticides and chemicals before adding them into a healthy snack, like plain Greek yogurt. Cancer-fighting berries can also be added to oatmeal and smoothies. Blueberries are particularly high in antioxidant power due to their variety of phytochemicals such as anthocyanins, quercetin, catechins, ellagic acid and resveratrol so its recommended that you consume small amounts daily.

About Rosemary Barclay

Rosemary Barclay believes that nutrition is fundamental to good health, and affects many facets of well-being including the skin, energy, immunity, mood, and performance. The Bonne Santé Wellness Center in Old Lyme, CT, offers solutions to problematic skin without the use of antibiotics or harsh chemicals.
She earned a bachelor’s degree and a Ph.D. in biochemistry in addition to becoming a board-certified nutrition specialist, certified esthetician, and acne specialist. Rosemary Barclay lives in Old Lyme, CT.

Dr. Begos is a mentor offering leadership advice to all medical professionals, including physicians, medical science liaisons, medical writers, devices, and pharmaceutical companies.

Dr. Begos explains, “Doctors sometimes get a reputation for having a “god-complex,” but to be a good leader, one must take part on a ground level and be involved in the minute details. In business, leaders have a responsibility to be precise, detailed, dedicated, and humble. Leadership involves participating in the daily practices an organization and working as a team to reach the goals set in place. As physicians, we have a great deal of head knowledge but acting like a dictator is not the way to get things done; leadership involves being the pillar of the workforce, but also setting an example for others to follow.”

Dr. Begos’ success in the medical and business field is primarily due to his dedication, resourcefulness, communication skills, and the ability to consistently and confidently lead a team. With teaching other surgeons new techniques, lecturing, awards and teaching medical students at Tufts University, he relies heavily on this broad background as a consultant and brings value to his clients and the organizations he works within various stages and projects.
Dr. Begos has held leadership roles in hospital facilities, such as President of the Medical Staff and Chair of the Department of Surgery involves managing hospital departments, physicians, and effecting change across the organization during times of flux and uncertainty.

Dr. Dennis Begos was the first physician in the Boston area (likely all of Massachusetts) to perform laparoscopic colectomy, which is now a standard procedure. Dr. Begos did his general surgery residency at Yale University where he was honorably named Chief Resident in his last year. Dr. Begos then went on to do a one-year fellowship in colon and rectal surgery at the Cleveland Clinic, where he trained with some of the world’s foremost experts in the field. He also graduated fourth in his medical class. He’s always been ambitious, and now he’s able to share those passions with executives, peers, and others interested in leadership roles and to improve the future of medicine and other specialties

Pledgecamp has joined Klaytn as one of its Initial Service Partners (ISP)

PledgeCamp Announced A Partnership With Public Blockchain Klaytn

PledgeCamp Announced A Partnership With Public Blockchain Klaytn

PledgeCamp Announced A Partnership With Public Blockchain Klaytn

SINGAPORE, July 18, 2019 / — Pledgecamp has joined Klaytn as one of its Initial Service Partners (ISP). Klaytn is the global public blockchain project of South Korea’s leading mobile platform Kakao Corp. (Kakao).

Developed by Kakao’s blockchain subsidiary arm Ground X, Klaytn aims to combine the best features of both public and private blockchains, and provide a world-class user experience to millions of people. Recently, Kakao has raised US$90 million in a private coin offering in order to fund development and research activities in Ground X.

Ground X’s CEO Jason Han wants to onboard 10 million user accounts onto Klaytn within its first year. To this effect, Klatyn plans to leverage the massive user base of Kakao’s free mobile texting and calling app KakaoTalk. Installed on over 93% of all smartphones in South Korea, Kakao Talk is the country’s most popular messaging app.

Today, Kakao Talk has over 50 million monthly active users worldwide, with about 44 million in South Korea. In terms of penetration, KakaoTalk can be compared to China’s leading chat platform WeChat, which has 1 billion monthly active uses and close to 90% market penetration.  

Kakao has already shown significant prowess in the blockchain industry. Dunamu Inc, a FinTech startup and a subsidiary of Kakao, operates cryptocurrency exchange Upbit jointly with US-based Bittrex. Launched on 24th Oct, 2017, Upbit is South Korea’s largest crypto-currency exchange by volume today.

In Dec, 2018, Upbit became the world’s first crypto exchange to receive certifications from the Korea Internet&Security Agency and the International Organization for Standardization, for information security, cloud security and cloud privacy. Recently, they have expanded their operations to Singapore and Indonesia too.

Kakao and its subsidiaries

In order to popularize blockchain technology among the masses, Ground X plans to fill Klatyn with a range of applications, including games, shopping apps, travel apps, and so on. In the words of Jason Han, they are partnering with “promising blockchain projects developed by globally successful service providers with a prospective user base of tens of millions”.

The partnerships will mutually benefit all the ISPs, as each of them would potentially be able to access each other’s’ user bases and drive further penetration.

Pledgecamp is proud to associate itself with Klatyn’s ecosystem as one of their initial service partners. Ground X has been selecting only quality companies with proven track records as their partners, and we are pleased to have passed their strict and rigorous listing criteria.

The partnership will enable millions of Kakao users to access our crowdsourcing platform, and invest in projects of their choice without being worried about being scammed in the process. Klaytn’s other ISPs will also be able to directly utilize our platform in case they wish to raise funds for a new product or service.

Pledgecamp is a company which is trying to disrupt the crowdfunding industry. The popular crowdfunding sites today charge a listing fee to projects which want to use their platform, and thereafter have no legal obligation to ensure whether these projects have lived up to their promises. Projects which fail to deliver their goals lead to disgruntled investors, and less than 1 in 3 people end up funding more than one project. This hurts the entire crowdfunding ecosystem.

Pledgecamp is introducing blockchain technology in the crowdfunding industry and implementing pro-backer measures. Through the Campaign Deposit mechanism, we will incentivize projects to get back their listing fees by showing tangible proof of progress to our users.

We would also keep a portion of the project’s funds locked in escrow through our Backer Insurance policy, to be distributed back to investors if they feel that the project hasn’t made sufficient progress. Recently, we have also joined the Vatican’s Laudato Si’ program, to support projects which are looking to make a positive social and environmental impact through their efforts.

For more information about Pledgecamp, please check out our website and read our whitepaper.
