Solving the Problem of Not Enough Maintenance Employees

I work for a fairly large apartment complex in the maintenance department. For some reason we have a lot of turnover with employees. They just don’t seem to work very hard as this is a rigorous job that demands a full day of work often with overtime. With the low number of the maintenance staff, we just can’t seem to get to everything that needs to be done. We have to prioritize service calls and often do not have time for the landscaping part of the job. Hiring a Nassau County tree pruning company would most certainly lighten the burden that we carry around every day.

I mentioned this to my immediate supervisor and he completely agreed with me. (more…)

Moving into a Bigger Condo for Our Family

My husband and I realized that we were going to have to find a new place to live when we started talking about having kids. At that time, we thought we were going to wait several more years. However, so many of our friends were having babies, and it just really made us want one or two of our own. We were only living in a one bedroom apartment at the time, so I started looking at condos that we could buy. When I looked at New Futura online, I knew that I was not going to look for any other places.

When you have found a place that makes you just stop what you are doing so you can daydream, then it is probably the place for you and your family. That is what New Futura did for me. (more…)

Perfect Solution for when the Pain Gets Bad

My wife took me to a chiropractor in Salinas the other day when I woke up in the morning and suddenly couldn’t get out of bed. I mean that literally, too. I literally could not get out of bed. She was in the bathroom taking a shower while I grunted and strained to simply get myself up and out of bed. I couldn’t move and it was obvious that my old back problem and returned with a vengeance. I should have known this would happen because I hadn’t had an episode in some time. It always shows up when it’s least expected.

Still, this was the first time I literally couldn’t get out of bed. That was an alarming escalation with this problem and one that had to be remedied immediately. (more…)

Change : Making A Change Starts With You!



One of my favourite things is the judgement people get when making a change in their lives that doesn’t match the idealism of whom they are talking to.

I’ll give a few examples because they make me laugh my ass off. I have a very analytical mind and I look at my sources in which I get  information.

ok so one that I battle all the time at  work when I eat my lunch is…

Me sitting down to eat lunch( chicken,salad, brown rice) while I am approached with ” You can’t survive eating that! that isn’t enough food! Let’s go to Boston pizza, it’s pasta tuesday!”        Or it’s be sitting down to eat breakfast and I have my oatmeal. Same response ” That isn’t even food” While I watch them eat their Mcdonalds breakfast.

It’s hard for me to respond in these situations because there are many things I could come back with. My main goal in this world is to assist, educate and encourage to be better in which ever aspect of their life needs improving. So my response is always educating in what nutrients are in my meals and what they benefit. I never get farther than 10-20 sec of my explanation. I have done this for about a yr now and I understand why people keep doing this finally…

For me it makes sense; I have a six pack, people comment on my physique, and I am also proud of the way I look. The one’s usually commenting on my habits or food are usually overweight. So physiologically it prevents blaming themselves for being in the physical condition that they are in if they cut me off and disregard the education I am giving for free.

It’s no different in financial world. There are so many resources out there explaining and assisting people on making more money; even millions. This is something I have spent the past year of my life researching. The closer I get to making any type of success, I get put down by all the people around me and I have figured out that that majority of people out there, for selfish reasons do not like seeing others succeed in any aspect of their lives.

It is unfortunate that people do not want to be called out in their faults preventing them from which ever result they are looking for but it’s a reality. No one likes to be told that they are failing; I get that but when is enough enough!? If i educate someone about diet and exercise that puts onus on them. But guess what!? That is what will help you succeed in the future.  When someone tells me I suck at something I use it as fuel( lesson learned) to void making that same mistake. If we are not improving ourselves everyday what is the point of being here?

A lesson I have learned throughout my years of training and now business world is that nothing comes for free or easily. But when you look on tv and online you see easy outs for all kinds of things! This is our current times issue. We have been programmed to think if you want a result for something, than you can just buy one in pill form, or gadget form. This is something that has to be changed!!!! Yes there are some easy places to shop and features like electric assist back hatches on SUV’s now but easy is not always better.

The easier we make everything in our life the quicker we will die! This is a fact not my opinion. “Only the strong survive” is not just some saying it should be a way of life.

I wish I could sit here and promise all my clients and followers that there is this new diet to try that will give you fast results but there isn’t!! they are all garbage.

There is only one answer to results in anything; that is HARD WORK. There is a blueprint in which I can give you that will make it easier applying the hard work but that is it. The rest is up to you guys! Results can only be earned.

1st   step is to write down what your goal is…

2nd  You need to be honest with yourselves and write down on paper what it is that will get you those results  ie. Cardio and adding more veggies to diet for weight loss

3rd Plan how you are going to apply this to your life, ie. how much time? how often?

4th schedule schedule schedule the time it is going to take to achieve these results

5th  Diary- This is going to be your accountability in why you are or are not getting these wanted results.

I know it is easy to always find something or someone to blame when goals are not achieved but lets make that change and hold ourselves accountable.

Change =  Fulfilment!!!!!!  Think of every time you did something that you did not want to do at first, but what once you started you were like ” This is awesome!!”?

The more we as humans achieve the more we enjoy this life of ours. We only get one so lets make it count!!!
