In 2013 McFarland founded a global company Magnises which is a card he launched on the first of March 2014. Magnises is a membership based platform that helps people take their life to the next level. This is not a bank card but a black card that is community-oriented used to approve everyday life.
The card is technology-based and can be used to transfer data from an existing card onto the strip of the Magnises card. The card can be used instead of the original card while still allowing users to be able to use both cards. The card has a fee of two hundred and fifty dollars annually with no limitations on spending or initiation fees.
