“Women Are Different, And Their Difference is Needed”: Shaping Women Who Will Change The World

Posted by admin on Apr 17th, 2015

Dr. Rita Lustgarten, Founder & CEO of Women on the Leading Edge, Inc., has a Mission – to Prepare High-Achieving Woman to Lead the Global Shift to Conscious Capitalism

San Francisco, CA – April 17, 2015 – The current climate of unprecedented social, political and environmental change is leading to tremendous challenges and opportunity in the business world.  With over 35 years of experience in the field of personal and professional development and transformation, Dr. Rita Lustgarten has a unique perspective on who is best poised to lead the way.

“Women are different,” she explains, “and their difference is needed.”

Dr. Rita is the founder of Women On The Leading Edge, Inc., a global consulting, leadership and business development company providing high-level mentorship, executive and leadership coaching, strategic and brand consulting, facilitation, professional speaking, Global Leadership Summits, and transformational programs for high-achieving women.  Working to prepare today’s women leaders to co-create a radically different future for our planet, Dr. Rita’s mission is to empower women to define success on their own terms, engage in meaningful endeavors, and become a powerful part of a new fundamental economic force to reshape the world.

“Women on the Leading Edge are women who fulfill their leadership potential and desire to leave their mark,” explains Dr. Lustgarten.  “They are leaders who are motivated by hope, vision and action. They are connected to the needs of the world, but not determined by them. They have an inspirational vision and a clear direction for how to get there.”

For years, Dr. Rita has worked as a global organizational and business consultant, psychologist, executive/leadership coach, mentor, international keynote speaker, facilitator and seminar leader.  Many of her clients are from Fortune 500, 300, and 100 companies, along with a number of non-profits, including Exxon, The Gap, Google, Williams-Sonoma, and Chicago Tribune. She regularly consults with top leaders in the financial and retail industries and several well-known public figures.

Women on the Leading Edge was developed to prepare women leaders to enjoy a higher level of success and visibility while facilitating these changes and spearheading progress.  The heart of this work is the Women’s Global Leadership Academy, a yearlong program highlighted by three, invitation-only, Global Leadership Summits. There a select group of influential women receive transformational leadership training, masterminding, and an ongoing dialogue exploring the positions women should be taking in order to grow their influence, overcome obstacles and accomplish their goals.

The Academy also focuses on select initiatives that will give its members a real opportunity to bring about positive change, as well as providing a support system that will enable its members to go back out into the world and catalyze change within their organizations.

This shift away from the old business paradigms and toward conscious capitalism, along with shifting the power base back to the Feminine is what Dr. Rita believes may be the most significant shift in the business world – and may prove to be the arena where women will have the opportunity to exercise the most significant impact.  “I believe there’s a big change already underway in the entrepreneurial world, and I think it will eventually happen in the corporate world.  People are bringing greater consciousness to the work they’re doing, they’re connected to a greater meaning and purpose in their work. They understand the value and power of relationships as a fundamental contributing element to their success. They are much more aware of their impact and the kind of impact they want to have. I truly believe that today’s business’s need to be mission driven, aligned with a greater purpose that enables them to become an active force for good in the world. Companies need to be more responsible and conscious of the impact they’re having and align with a greater positive direction.”  I do believe the transformation of the world will come though business, and through women.

Dr. Lustgarten holds masters’ degrees in Clinical Psychology and Human and Organizational Development and a doctorate in Human Development & Organizational Systems with a specialization in Women’s Leadership. She was awarded a fellowship for her outstanding work in the field of women and leadership and her concomitant contribution to a national initiative called Creative, Longevity, and Wisdom, a project of the Institute for Social Innovation.  She is also the mother of two grown children.

Mike Lawrence’s Path To Becoming A Rock Star Marketing Expert Began At A Car Wash!

Posted by admin on Apr 15th, 2015

Shifting Gears From Musical Ambitions, The Entrepreneur’s Company, Amp Marketing, Has Been Featured in INC, Forbes, NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox and Achieved 1,023% 3-Year Growth

Orlando, FL – April 15, 2015 - In 2013, just two years after launching his company Amp Marketing, Mike Lawrence became a best-selling author by contributing to a unique, empowering anthology called “Think and Grow Rich Today!” In addition to Hill’s 1937 classic interpretation on leadership, self-motivation and individual achievement, the book features a panel of contemporary authors who have made his principles the cornerstone of their burgeoning careers.

Lawrence devoted his chapter, titled “A Chance Encounter at A Carwash” to his personal inspirational story, starting with his upbringing in Mesquite, Texas, continuing through his dogged pursuit of a musical career as a rock drummer and music instructor, and sharing a key moment when a few passing words from a stranger at a car wash inspired him to change the trajectory of his professional life.

At the time of its publication, Lawrence was touting the initial success of his company, which had secured a national contract for marketing services with a Fortune 500 telecommunications company and had increased revenues 371 percent in 2012. From its roots in Chicago, Amp Marketing had rapidly expanded operations to Florida, where they currently serve the markets of Orlando, Melbourne and Port St. Lucie. His rapidly growing business had earned him a feature in Inc. Magazine as “The Next Big Thing.”

Lawrence founded Amp Marketing on a commitment to provide its clients with proven, personal interaction-based marketing and sales strategies that net powerful results. The initial focus of its outsourced sales services was a major Fortune 500 telecommunications company with a revolutionary fiber-optic IPTV, Internet, and phone product.

Consistent with its incredible early growth, Amp Marketing enjoyed unprecedented expansion in 2014, when its revenues revealed a whopping 1,023 percent growth from its first fiscal year in 2011. In addition to his March 2015 feature in Forbes as a success expert, Lawrence appeared as a guest on “Success Today” hosted by Bob Guiney, who is well known from the hit TV show “The Bachelor.” “Success Today” will be aired on NBC, CBS, Fox and ABC affiliates this year.

With more infrastructure and leadership in place, Amp has added offices in Raleigh, Kansas City and Dallas – and picked up contracts with another major telecommunications company as well as multi-billion dollar Fortune 500 company in the energy industry.

While Lawrence still jams occasionally on the weekends, he draws on his years as a music teacher and live performer to fuel the powerful training he gives his sales teams. He loves the fact that the Amp Family – as he calls his staff – comes from all different backgrounds and brings their experience and eagerness to learn the power of sales and marketing. In January 2015, he invited (for the second time) 20 of his top producers from around the country on a five-day relationship building retreat and training trip to Cozumel, Mexico.

Lawrence also attributes the company’s growth to the powerful contributions of his Managing Partner, Jacob Jones, and his wife/business partner, Liana Leordeanu. He calls the Dallas based Jones “a pillar, a high character, high integrity guy that believes in transparency,” citing the knowledge and experience he brought to Amp as instrumental in its success. Lawrence and Jones, a marketing industry vet of over ten years, worked at the same company in different cities as friendly competitors in the time before Lawrence started Amp Marketing. Jones saw the write up on his old friend in Inc. and the two reconnected. Friendly talk about the old days evolved into an incredible new opportunity to work together.

Lawrence freely admits that, “I don’t know if any of this would have happened without the support of my amazing wife.” Liana is a sales, marketing and business guru in her own right, a speaker and best-selling author who has run a nationwide sales force of 1,500 reps for a multi-billion dollar company. She brings to the table years of corporate experience, and a deep knowledge of mergers and acquisitions and buying and selling businesses. She also co-authored the bestselling book “Dare To Succeed” with Jack Canfield, renowned motivational speaker and co-author of the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series.

Social Security Expert Cheryl Robertson Featured On Yahoo Finance

Posted by admin on Apr 14th, 2015

Cheryl Robertson was recently featured in Yahoo! Finance and other major online media outlets, including CNBC, Bloomberg Business, MarketWatch and many others.

Plainville, MA – April 14, 2015Cheryl Robertson is a former labor and employment lawyer who is now the Founder of The Corporation for Social Security Claiming Strategies (CSSCS.) A feature story about Ms. Robertson was recently seen on Yahoo! Finance as well as the other major online publications such as CNBC.com, The Boston Globe, Reuters, Bloomberg Business and MarketWatch, among many others.

Robertson and her team help train advisors on the intricacies of the Social Security system’s nearly 3000 filing rules. Through her work as a financial advisor, Cheryl learned that nearly 10,000 baby boomers were retiring each and every day – all of whom could benefit greatly by working with advisors  who possessed the expertise necessary to help them make the best possible decision about when and how to file for Social Security retirement benefits. This realization caused Cheryl to embark on the course to create what would become CSSCS.

With American corporations eliminating more than 84,000 pension plans since 1985, and with the stock market experiencing over a decade of unprecedented volatility, Cheryl was acutely aware of how important this decision had become for what is the first generation in history required to self-fund their retirement. While the average working American might know enough to file and receive their Social Security benefits, the system, with nearly 3,000 filing rules, is wrought with traps and run by a government agency that is prohibited from dispensing advice.

The Corporation for Social Security Claiming Strategies (CSSCS) is an outgrowth of the cottage marketing industry that has sprung up in recent years thanks to the new filing strategies made available as part of the Senior Citizens Freedom to Work Act, passed into law in 2001. Launched in October 2014, with a home base in Plainville, MA, CSSCS is engineered to provide financial professionals with the expertise needed to help the Boomer generation plot the course to a better retirement.

By utilizing various Social Security claiming strategies, sophisticated retirement income advisors, like those that have completed her course, are able to use this knowledge to mitigate the long-term risk their clients face of running out of money in retirement. While the original program was piloted in the independent advisor community, CSSCS has now opened up its educational doors to a wider universe of advisors, legal, CPAs, estate planners, tax advisors and Human Resources professionals.

Retirement Advisor And Insurance Specialist Gary Marriage, Jr. Protects Assets From Risks As “People’s Hero”

Posted by admin on Apr 14th, 2015

CEO of Nature Coast Financial – An Author, Mentor and Renowned Speaker – Takes Team Approach To Providing an Array of Services For Clients in 17 States

Crystal River, FL – April 14, 2015 – Now a successful, multi-faceted retirement advisor and insurance specialist serving several thousand clients in his home region around Crystal River, FL and 17 states nationwide, Gary Marriage, Jr. secured his license in 2005 and became an advisor at a major company.

The self-motivated Gary did so well so quickly – he was one of the fastest growing advisors in the company’s history – that within eight months he was hiring advisors to work under his tutelage and teaching them how to grow their practices and clientele.

And then, less than a year into his meteoric rise, he quit. Frustrated by the limitations of being a “captive advisor” working for a major company and only pushing their products, he quit to launch his own multi-service financial firm, Nature Coast Financial.

Gary says, “You know how you jump on Google to find an array of information? I wanted to be Google for my clients, offering everything that was available to create customized strategies to protect their assets from the many risks out there.”

Over the years, Gary has helped thousands of retirees and pre-retirees develop stable plans to ensure their savings will work and be there for them when they need it. Unlike some advisors who focus exclusively on the retirement demographic, Gary also specializes in planning for younger high net worth individuals such as athletes, celebrities and business owners. He designs plans to drastically increase their estate size, while reducing their net worth from future excess taxation – giving them a choice between being “taxed up front on the seed, or later on the harvest.”

Because he humbly believes that a single person like him simply cannot have all the education, knowledge and experience to fully serve a diversified clientele, he has from the start favored “The Team” approach. Complementing his expertise on planning and taxes, he works with several top local and national attorneys and CPAs – which he dubs “professionals outside my jurisdiction or expertise” – to help clients with deeper issues related to taxes, trusts, wills and other elements that come together to create the perfect financial strategy.

Throughout the year in Florida, Nature Coast Financial holds public and client financial/educational events. On a national level, Gary educates groups and various organizations at several prominent financial and real estate conventions – and in June of 2015 he is scheduled to speak at the Florida Institute of CPA’s conference at Disney World. In addition, he mentors other financial advisors on how they can grow their practice.

In 2014, Gary expanded his influence by becoming a best-selling author, joining today’s leading entrepreneurs and professionals to co-author (with Steve Forbes) “SuccessOnomics: Learn the Secrets of Success in the New Economy from Today’s Leading Entrepreneurs & Professionals.”

In addition to being a featured guest on local and national TV, radio and in print publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, CBS, NBC and Fox Business, Gary is also serving as Executive Producer on the upcoming documentary film “Armonia,” created with the non-profit Armonia U.S. Inc, which supports programs abroad that are committed to working with the poor to bring about Christian transformation, empowerment and a better life.

A family man devoted to his wife Jennifer and one year old son Mason, and an avid outdoorsman who loves fishing, diving, attending football games and golfing, Gary is also very involved in his own community. A large contributor to the local YMCA and Make-A-Wish Foundation, he has also worked with the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, Wounded Warriors, National Wildlife & Turkey Federation, Relay for Life, and others.

Beyond offering important traditional financial services like IRA Planning, Estate Planning, Tax Reduction and helping retirees decide the best time to activate their Social Security Benefits, Nature Coast Financial is also heavily involved in helping secure Veteran Benefits.

“I like to say that the best part of my job is that I help people every day and I get paid to do it…I get paid to be people’s hero,” he says. “I love it when they say, ‘I wish I had met you sooner.’ That means that I’m making a substantial difference in their lives.”
