The ancient art of Feng Shui teaches the power of intention. I have studied Feng Shui and applied its principles in my life and career and found it to be a powerful and fun way to set intentions and focus on what I want to create in my life. With that in mind, we have designed the Intentions - Focus Map and Journal template to support you in setting clear intentions for the New Year. Clarity is so critical in setting your intentions. Once you are clear, you can make a commitment to yourself to do it. Setting your intentions... Read more →

An amazing thing happened to us over the past few weeks. My dear friend, collaborator and now business partner, Matt Emerson and I have been supporting each other as we pursue our passions and purpose. We were contemplating how to align and connect our business ideas and separate entities to better serve our clients and customers. The answer was simple and right there in front of us all along - as is the case so often in life. We had an epiphany! It occurred as we were following our own coaching advice ... to Get Up and Get Out and... Read more →

2009 Year in Review - A Year of Change & Adjustment

For me, 2009 was all about change and adjusting to that change. Personally, I made a major career change in July when I resigned as General Manager at Prudential Americana Group, REALTORS to pursue my passion for coaching and training on my own. Many people thought I was out of my mind to leave the security of a great position in a successful company in the middle of the worst economic downturn and recession since the Great Depression. It was the best decision for me and at a perfect time. I am happy to be doing what I talked about... Read more →

Remembering 9-11-2001 and September National Day of Service

As I watch the Today Show's re-broadcast of the 9-11 events as they unfolded, I am reliving that surreal and shocking moment in my life in 2001. I was on vacation with my family in Florida. We were getting ready to go play a round of golf and we saw the Today Show's live reporting of one of the World Trade Center towers on fire, smoke billowing out from the side and top. As Katie Couric and Matt Lauer interviewed eye-witnesses and attempted to sort out the details, we watched on live TV as the second commercial jet flew into... Read more →

Lawrence “Sam” Wilson III 1972-2008 At Prudential Americana Group Realtors, we recently lost a friend and co-worker. Sam Wilson was a bright, shining light who touched everyone in such a positive way. He was the embodiment of dedication, hard-work, determination and devotion.

Sam's example reminds us to ....... Read more →
