Veteran Software Engineer Lumbie Mlambo Featured On MarketWatch

Posted by admin on Dec 19th, 2014

Equanimity Magazine founder Lumbie Mlambo was recently featured in MarketWatch.com and other major online media outlets, including CNBC.com, Businessweek, Yahoo!Finance and many others.

Coppell, TX – December 19, 2014 – A feature story about Lumbie Mlambo, Founder of Equanimity Magazine, was recently seen on MarketWatch.com as well as the other major online publications such as CNBC.com, The Boston Globe, Dallas Business Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek and Yahoo!Finance, among many others.

In 2009, while still employed with JP Morgan Chase, Lumbie launched a small publishing business that developed into a publication “whose mission,” she says, was “to empower, encourage, and inspire others through true stories ‘real people stories’ to not give up hope, but to realize they have a potential to rise, be creative, and be who they want to be, as well as participate in the community.”

Equanimity Magazine (whose subtitle and founding motto is: Balance Your Lifestyle) shares stories of people in different stages of their life and career journeys. Some are beginning and growing, others have succeeded in reaching the balance that is the foundation of their pursuit of their life’s dreams and goals.

In line with Lumbie’s values and ongoing desire to give back to her local community, Equanimity has a powerful philanthropic aspect as well. In 2014, she founded and pioneered a Walk-4-Green movement which encourages workers to take time out of their busy work schedule and walk for 30 minutes a day to relieve job stress, have fun and appreciate life. It was inspired by the unique approach to life taken by her mother, who passed away from cancer at age 92 in early 2014.

In January, 2013, Lumbie launched JB Dondolo, Inc. (http://www.jbdondolo.org), a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to provide charitable services to benefit impoverished communities worldwide. Named after her late father, the charity is a member of the United Nation’s Green Industry Platform. The ongoing initial project that JB Dondolo, Inc. is involved in is refurbishing a rundown clinic/hospital in Zimbabwe whose restoration was close to Dondolo’s heart.

About Lumbie Mlambo:

Growing up the youngest of ten children in a rural part of Zimbabwe known as Matebeleland, Lumbie Mlambo went hungry much of the time – but was blissfully unaware that her family was poor because she found ways to enjoy her childhood despite the suffering and struggle. Her parents were farmers who grew crops (largely, corn) to feed their large family, and Lumbie grew up feeling loved and supported, learning from them the value of not judging others, being humble, and understanding that positive change for the better can come, no matter how hopeless the current moment may seem.

Incredibly, her father, an orphan whose own lack of family growing up inspired him to raise his own children with discipline and hope, found a way to send all of his children to college to pursue their dreams. While several of Lumbie’s siblings had moved to the U.S., she was the last one to remain at home. When her parents sent her to Dallas to live with one of her brothers, they could never have known what a powerful and inspiring American success story she would become.

Discovering a passion for computer science and Information Technology, Lumbie – who moved with her new husband’s job to Indiana – earned an Associate’s Degree in Computer Science from Indiana University at South Bend and later returned to Texas to get her B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics from Texas Woman’s University. She launched her career in Software Development in 1996 and later worked as a business analyst in the IT Industry. Her background includes an extraordinary 10-year stint as a Software Engineer with JP Morgan Chase, where she was in charge of developing robust mortgage-related consumer software.

Incredibly, she did all her schooling and became a force in the software and IT industries while raising a family; her two sons are 20 and 26 years old. Her powerful ability to overcome harsh circumstances also helped in her recovery from a stroke in 2001 that left her partially paralyzed.

For Lumbie, balance in all things has been the key. Even while living in the bleak countryside setting as a child, she never gave up hope and developed a true sense of Equanimity – officially defined as “a state of mental calmness, composure and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation.” Years later, that became the perfect name for her revolutionary national magazine where driven people from all walks of life balance their lifestyle for success in reaching their goals.

Accomplished Plastic Surgeon Dr. Verne Weisberg Featured On Yahoo Finance

Posted by admin on Dec 19th, 2014

Dr. Verne Weisberg was recently featured in Yahoo!Finance and other major online media outlets, including CNBC.com, Businessweek, MarketWatch and many others.

Portland, ME – December 19, 2014Dr. Verne Weisberg Founder of The Plastic Surgery Center, was recently seen on Yahoo!Finance as well as the other major online publications such as CNBC.com, The Boston Globe, New York Business Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek and MarketWatch, among many others.

Recognized as “Best of 2012 Plastic & Cosmetic Surgeons” by Plastic Surgery Practice magazine, Dr. Weisberg has developed the premier Aesthetic Surgical Practice in northern New England over the past 25 years. As a double boarded surgeon, he is trained in all aspects of facial plastic surgery with a special interest in rhinoplasty, both primary and revisional, as well as face-lifting.

His services include a wide array of procedures that fall under four basic categories. Facial Rejuvenation procedures include nose reshaping, facelift, neck lift, brow lift, eyelid lift, chin implants and ear surgery. Body Contouring includes liposuction, tummy tuck, buttock lift, arm lift and corset trunkplasty. Breast Enhancement includes Augmentation/Enlargement, Reduction, Lift and Gynecomastia Correction, which is Breast Reduction for Men. Minimally or Non-Invasive Procedures include BOTOX® Cosmetic and Restylane®, Juvederm® and Radiesse® fillers.

Dr. Weisberg is board certified with two surgical specialties. His first board certification is in otolaryngology (ENT), after three years of training at the prestigious Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. Dr. Weisberg was then privileged to complete his plastic surgical residency at Yale University, after which he was invited to join the faculty. While a resident at Yale, Dr. Weisberg spent several months at New York University Medical Center and Manhattan Eye and Ear Hospital where he studied aesthetic surgery.

In 1987, Dr. Weisberg was appointed Assistant Professor of Surgery (Plastic) by Yale University, where he taught the general surgery and plastic surgery residents. During that time, he developed a love for clinical practice and cosmetic surgery, especially after having developed the first university-based aesthetic surgery practice on his own. The draw of private practice was, however, strong and he left the University to start his own practice in Portland, Maine. His motto has always been “good cosmetic surgery should be invisible.”

A well established professional in the community, Dr. Weisberg considers Portland something of a hidden gem for aesthetic surgery that has allowed him to develop a boutique style of practice with a unique Maine twist – attracting a core practice of New Englanders but also patients from all over the world. Though The Plastic Surgery Center’s major demographic is women from ages 40-75, Dr. Weisberg – whose motto has long been “good cosmetic surgery should be invisible” – has found over the years that more men are doing plastic surgery.

“My job is to listen to what my patients want and come up with effective solutions to get them the best possible results,” he says. “If my initial recommendations seem too extreme for them, or prohibitively expensive or beyond anything they could envision themselves doing, we come up with a simpler yet still effective alternative.”

Top Selling Real Estate Broker Josh Painter Featured On MarketWatch

Posted by admin on Dec 18th, 2014

Josh Painter, Temecula real estate expert, was recently featured on MarketWatch.com and other major online media outlets, including CNBC.com, Businessweek, Yahoo!Finance, The Press Enterprise and many others.

Temecula, CA – December 18, 2014 – A feature story about Josh Painter, Founder of Pacific Lifestyles Realty, was recently seen on MarketWatch.com as well as the other major online publications such as CNBC.com, The Press Enterprise, the Sacramento Bee, California Business Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek and Yahoo!Finance, among many others.

Setting himself apart by truly caring about his clients and being committed to building lifelong relationships with them, Painter quickly became a local real estate phenomenon, selling an astounding 165 homes in one year – more than any other agent in the Temecula/Murrieta area. Today, while building a loyal staff of 40 agents (all equally committed to specialized, long term client relationships and services) and growing, he has personally sold more than 500 homes. He and his team are able to sell homes for up to 21 percent more money than the average agent – and do it an average of 26 days faster than the average for the area.

Painter’s goal is to give the most value possible to every person he works with, clients and agents alike – and this extends to the “above and beyond” services and offerings that clients experience when they work with Pacific Lifestyles Realty.

Beyond his engaging personality and dedication to the needs of his clients, one of the main reasons Painter has risen so far so quickly is the fact that he is deeply passionate about and connected to his home city Temecula, where he and his wife and teenage son and daughter live in the Redhawk community. This intimacy with the community allows Painter to boldly declare, “We know all the secrets of what makes Temecula one of Southern California’s most sought-after communities. It’s a dynamic, family oriented lifestyle, with parks and golf courses everywhere, in addition to some of the nation’s top rated schools. We’re also excited to service many of our surrounding communities, including Murreta, Menifee, Winchester, Wildomar and Lake Elsinore.”

More about Josh Painter:

Driven by his long held belief that there’s “no glory in mediocrity,” Josh Painter found himself at a powerful crossroads in mid-2008. Though he had established himself as a successful loan originator in his longtime hometown of Temecula, California – South Riverside County’s premier winemaking region – he realized that he was earning a fraction of what the real estate agents he worked with made on any given deal while doing three times as much work.

When he decided to bring his license to the local Keller Williams office, he was broke and behind on his rent and car payment. He had $60 to his name. Painter held an open house the next day and immediately wrote a client’s offer on the property – and by the end of the year, he was closing a handful of deals a month, debt free and engaged in an exciting new career that would change the course of his life.

At a time when everyone was fearful because of a weakening market, he looked beyond the headlines to find dynamic opportunities. Because of dropping property values, there were hundreds of buyers who could never buy homes before who finally could. “I woke up every morning driven to help these people,” says Painter, who launched his current company, Pacific Lifestyles Realty, in 2010. “I knew that if other agents could do well in this business, there was no reason I couldn’t succeed.”

Veteran Software Engineer Lumbie Mlambo Featured On Yahoo Finance

Holistic Financial Advisor Keith Gebert Featured On Businessweek.com

Posted by admin on Dec 12th, 2014

Keith Gebert, NYC/New Jersey Based Entrepreneur, was recently featured on Businessweek.com and other major online media outlets, including CNBC.com, MarketWatch, Yahoo Finance and many others.

New York/New Jersey – December 12, 2014 – A feature story about Award-winning holistic Financial Advisor Keith Gebert, Founder of RightBridge Financial Group, was recently seen on the Bloomberg Businessweek website as well as the other major online publications such as CNBC.com, The Boston Globe, New York Business Journal, MarketWatch.com and Yahoo!Finance, among many others.

Founded on his principles of integrity and ingenuity, Gebert’s mission with RightBridge Financial Group is to provide clients comprehensive, unbiased advice relating to all aspects of their financial situations. Gebert and his team help them achieve any number of key financial goals, from planning for retirement, accumulating wealth and enhancing their business, to developing IRA strategies and designing proprietary exit strategies. The firm believes that the single most important responsibility of a financial advisory practice is the delivery of professional advice and service on a daily basis to individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations.

“With RightBridge Financial,” says Gebert, “we have the unique tools at our disposal to serve our clients’ many diverse needs with comprehensive, holistic plans. Many of the financial products I work with to create individualized plans are those that less than one percent of advisors have access to. This has allowed me to create a unique proprietary practice driven by multi-faceted solutions.”

About Keith Gebert:

Growing up in Brooklyn, Keith Gebert’s future success as a financial advisor was practically pre-destined as part of his family DNA. His mother worked on Wall Street as a bond transfer agent for EF Hutton and Dean Witter. Her uncle, Gebert’s great uncle, has been a broker for many years and is currently retired from being a partner in a wealth management firm in Florida.

Gebert, who launched his own independent firm, RightBridge Financial Group, in NYC and New Jersey in early 2014 after five award winning dynamic years with New York Life, grew up observing all of this in an exciting era, the 90s. He spent his time among hot shot brokers, learning where and how money was made. He knew automatically he would follow in his mom’s and great uncle’s footsteps.

His passion for baseball was his ticket. Throughout his childhood and his teens, when he wasn’t immersed in learning about finance, Gebert was on the field, usually playing second base. He played on various leagues and competitions like the Little League World Series, and for the AAU Travel League; he played at the Friendship Games (a prominent international event in Europe dedicated to helping young athletes) and also played for his alma mater, Xaverian High in Brooklyn, which had one of the best high school teams in the country. Gebert extended his baseball career for a time after graduating from Dominican, essentially launching his financial career by helping his fellow teammates and working with professional athletes.

While building his clientele with a conservative style of investment he named (and still calls) Safe Money Planning, Gebert—positioning himself as a retirement specialist for those 55 years and older—set many sales records and was selected several times for the AAC Triple Crown Award, based on his prominence as one of the top advisors in the company and voted on by the Advisory Council. It’s a distinction based on those advisors who best utilize all of New York life’s products in their clients’ financial plan– something that came natural to Gebert as he developed close personal relationships with his clients and developed customized holistic plans for their retirements.

Gebert was also a member of New York Life’s Executive Council and a member of the Million Dollar Round Table and the Manhattan Chambers of Commerce. His accolades have continued in 2014, including an America Select Financial Advisor Award and, even more uniquely, a 2014 Women’s Choice Award, awarded by a prominent women’s organization in recognition of his excellent work on behalf of single and widowed female clients. Gebert’s ongoing community service efforts include donating time and money to numerous charities, including leading holiday toy drives at the Staten Island University Children’s Hospital and Miami (Florida) Children’s Hospital.

New York Life allows established agents with three years tenure the option of creating their own DBA under the corporate umbrella – but in early 2014, Gebert made the bold move to leave the company and create the completely independent “RightBridge Financial Group- whose branding slogan is “Your Bridge To Financial Freedom.” Though he credits his time at New York Life for instilling ethics and discipline, he felt it was time for him to go on his own.

It’s a dynamic, family oriented lifestyle, with parks and golf courses everywhere, in addition to some of the nation’s top rated schools. We’re also excited to service many of our surrounding communities, including Murreta, Menifee, Winchester, Wildomar and Lake Elsinore.”

More about Josh Painter:

Driven by his long held belief that there’s “no glory in mediocrity,” Josh Painter found himself at a powerful crossroads in mid-2008. Though he had established himself as a successful loan originator in his longtime hometown of Temecula, California – South Riverside County’s premier winemaking region – he realized that he was earning a fraction of what the real estate agents he worked with made on any given deal while doing three times as much work.

When he decided to bring his license to the local Keller Williams office, he was broke and behind on his rent and car payment. He had $60 to his name. Painter held an open house the next day and immediately wrote a client’s offer on the property – and by the end of the year, he was closing a handful of deals a month, debt free and engaged in an exciting new career that would change the course of his life.

At a time when everyone was fearful because of a weakening market, he looked beyond the headlines to find dynamic opportunities. Because of dropping property values, there were hundreds of buyers who could never buy homes before who finally could. “I woke up every morning driven to help these people,” says Painter, who launched his current company, Pacific Lifestyles Realty, in 2010. “I knew that if other agents could do well in this business, there was no reason I couldn’t succeed.”
