Two Real Estate Speakers Who Know How to Bring Down The House!

Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing” star, real estate broker, and keynote speaker Josh Altman is an authority on business knowledge and practice.

The Massachusetts native graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in Speech Communications.

AT AGE 27, HE WAS ALREADY A MILLIONAIRE!

imgres-1Of the nearly 2.5 million residential real estate brokers in the United States, The Wall Street Journal ranked Altman #22 in the nation for closing over $1.5 billion in sales. His clientele includes high-profile actors, athletes, and really anyone in-between. He even sold Tyler Perry’s home for $11.25 million!

Altman has closed insane real estate deals such as a Marina Del Rey home for over $100 million and a one-bedroom for $21.5 million, the most expensive one-bedroom ever sold!

However, fortune did not come easily for Altman. After making his first millions, he was broke after six months. Fortunately, Altman learned from investment mistakes and is now financially successful as ever.

His lectures are primarily on how everyone is trying to establish their own brands both in business and in their personal lives. Using this outlook, Altman consults organizations on how they can become top-tier players in their fields.

 

Nationally acclaimed economist and public speaker Dr. Elliot Eisenberg has a lifetime of financial real estate experience under his belt.

Along with his extensive experience on radio and television, he was once a Senior Economist with the National Association of Home Builders in Washington, D.C. and created the multifamily stock index.

Jones Loflin On Getting The Most Out Of Your Work

imgresKeynote speaker Jones Loflin’s newly relased article, “How To Be More Productive And Less Busy,” provides tips to anyone who feels that they are overworked or feel that their workloads are in high volume, but of little importance.

He outlines ways to combat these feelings of frustration and disappointment in his four main suggestions:

1. Have clarity about your priorities and the work to be done to accomplish them.

2. Start with a couple simple tasks.

3. Break down the big stuff.

4. Alternate tasks in your schedule.

Loflin conveys how people feel more validated at their workplace after having completed several simple tasks instead of a few harder tasks in one day.

He also points out possible variables that could lead to people feeling worn out or down on themselves at work.

“One of the reasons for this lack of productivity is the sheer number of distractions and crises vying for our attention each day. These items keep us moving, but not necessarily in a forward direction,” Loflin says.

Loflin is a master of motivation and offers a variety of programs for any organization on stress management, time management, and dealing with change.

Freelance Photographer Matthew Schrier Joins Eagles!

imgres-2Imagine you are a photographer who just spent 18 days in Syria taking photos of disturbing live combat of the Free Syrian Army and are on your way home back to the United States.

Now, imagine being under an hour away from the Turkish border and being captured and held as prisoner of war by the al Nusra Front terrorist group for seven months.

Over those months, you are suffering and seeing unspeakable torture and seeing how dark humans can be to one another.

Now, see yourself escaping from prison, the sixth one you have endured, and making it back to the border and to freedom in less than 24 hours with no phone, money, or passport.

It sounds like a nightmare to us, but to freelance photographer Matthew Schrier, it was once his reality.

Upon returning home, Schrier’s story of survival became an international phenomenon. He was featured in media worldwide, including CNN, 60 Minutes, Fox News, and appeared on the front page of the New York Times. He is also set to be featured in Academy Award nominee Sebastian Junger’s upcoming documentary, which will air on the Discovery Channel later this year.

imgres

As a master on leadership and cultural diversity, Schrier is an asset to any organization. His keynote speeches demonstrate his expertise on how to bring an organization together despite any interpersonal differences.

Schrier also stresses how trivial things such as religion and politics did not matter while he was held captive with 30 other men. Since these personal characteristics did not affect a group of prisoners, Schrier believes that they definitely should not affect a workplace environment.

As a person who has witnessed the darkest side of humanity, Schrier shows attendees how they can cultivate their brightest futures.

2016 Wimbledon Winners vs Most Accomplished Physically Challenged Athlete in the World!

The Wimbledon tennis championship matches concluded last week with Serena Williams winning the Women’s singles tournament, and Andy Murray winning the Men’s singles tournament.

serena-winning-wimbledon-0907Williams, who is ranked as the world’s top women’s singles tennis player, won Wimbledon for a spectacular seventh time while tying the record held by Steffi Graf for most career Grand Slams with 22.

Along with her sister, Venus, the Williams sisters also took home a Women’s doubles tournament victory adding to their legacy as arguably the best tennis duo of all time.

000_d12nsMurray, ranked number 2 in the world of male tennis players, won his second Men’s singles Wimbledon title while capturing his third Major title overall.

In 2012, Murray also became the lone male player to win an Olympic gold medal and the U.S. Open during the same calendar year. Murray is also only the third man to win the gold medal and two majors on different court surfaces. 

Both of these players have been enjoying honorable and decorated careers by triumphing against all odds and pressure from their opposition. Their drive and dedication to the sport they love is what has made them champions.

However, not every athlete can be as physically gifted as Williams and Murray.

96440Tennis champion Roger Crawford has been fighting against his own body’s limitations since the day he was born with ectrodactylism, a rare birth defect that impairs the mobility of all four limbs. Despite this obstacle, Crawford went on to become the only person in AMERICAN HISTORY to be a Division I athlete and a United States Professional Tennis Association athlete.

He even earned the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s highest honor; the Achievement Award presented by The International Tennis Hall of Fame!

Crawford learned from others as well as himself, that he could play tennis professionally as long as he did not let his disabilities define him.

His presentations show audiences how to turn the pages of their lives’ most challenging chapters by maintaining a positive attitude. The amazing stories he shares in his keynote speeches teach attendees how to achieve extraordinary results, by triumphing over their personal trials.

Crawford is a brilliant example of how people can choose to change their lives for the better even when they are dealt the worst.

Celebrating National Hot Dog Month with Winners & Weiners

One of the most delicious times of the year, National Hot dog Month, is finally here!

Hot dogs have been a staple in the American diet for over a century. Their popularity has always been high due to their easy portability, versatility in recipes, and especially their taste. There is no wrong time or place to enjoy a hot dog. People devour them at barbecues, concerts, and sporting events, especially at baseball games.

During Major League Baseball season, hot dogs are sold by the MILLIONS each year!

However, despite their delectability, not all hot dogs are grilled equally. The “Fenway Frank” at Fenway Park in Boston is just one of the many renditions of these summer snacks and are loved by both Red Sox fans and opposing fans alike.

imgresOne of the most famous baseball stadium hot dogs in the nation is the “Dodger Dog” at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. With its simple makeup of only a footlong hotdog (grilled or steamed) topped with mustard and relish on a steamed bun, it has been a fan favorite for decades.

In addition to its great food, another fan favorite at Dodger Stadium is a man who “ate up” nearly any ball hit his way over his stellar 19-year career, Dodgers legendary first basemen Steve Garvey. This 10-time All-Star and 1981 World Series champion knows what it takes to work towards a common goal and excel in life. He is also the President of Garvey Management Group and continues to inspire others by teaching them skills for business and leadership.

04_jimabbott.w250.h375Nearly everyone knows about Nathan’s Famous hot dogs since they arrived at Coney Island 100 years ago. Another conservatively prepared hot dog, Nathan’s boiled all-beef treats served on steamed buns are New York icons. A century later, they are still here and are sold at Yankee Stadium. Many storied careers have passed through this ballpark, but one story stands out from the rest.

With a passion and desire to play the game he loved, pitcher Jim Abbott took the mound at Yankee Stadium with only one hand. Despite being born without his right hand, Abbott found a way to accomplish his baseball dream. He enjoyed an 11-year career on multiple teams showing hints of light wherever he went. However, Abbott shined his brightest in New York while playing for the Yankees on September 4, 1993. While pitching against the Cleveland Indians, Abbott became only the eighth Yankee and ONLY one-handed pitcher to throw a no-hitter. His courageous tale captivates all audiences as he shows people what they can do no matter what the odds.

john-dominis-cincinnati-reds-catcher-johnny-bench-catching-pop-fly-during-game-against-san-francisco-giantsThe Cincinnati Reds have some of the most passionate fans in baseball. The Reds, being founded in 1881, are one of the oldest franchises in Major League Baseball. Along with their age, the Reds offer a traditional Cincinnati take on the beloved hot dog. Inspired by Nathan’s, the Reds’ home of Great American Ball Park has the “Cincinnati Reds Cheese Coney.” Cincinnati locals love chili, so this hot dog is smothered in famous Skyline chili and topped with onions and shredded cheddar cheese.

When fans “catch” a Reds game, images of former Hall of Fame Reds catcher Johnny Bench often come to mind. Regarded by many including ESPN and the Sporting News as the greatest catcher of all time, Bench brought two World Series wins to Cincinnati during the 1970’s. Bench, along with Hall of Fame teammates Pete Rose, Joe Morgan, and Tony Pérez became known by many as the “Big Red Machine” because of their success throughout the decade.

Since retiring from baseball, Bench has appeared on multiple sports television and radio shows. He also supports many causes including the American Cancer Society, where he served as the National Chairman of Athletes vs. Cancer, and the ‘Catch the Cure’ program of the Children’s Hospital of Cincinnati.

Top 10 Olympian Speakers

With the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro just around the corner, it makes sense to highlight some of the most influential Olympic Speakers today who were also incredible Olympic athletes.

1. Jim Craig is not only known as the goalie for the 1980 USA Olympic Hockey Team, but also as its passion and heart that helped orchestrate the “Miracle on Ice” over the Soviet Union’s national team. Hockey fans as well as sports fans worldwide had the privilege of watching him and his team’s epic performance during that year’s Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. Against all odds, he and his teammates brought home the gold medal. Today, he helps organizations develop team-oriented environments by using lessons from his life and hockey career.

 

2. Craig’s teammate and leader Mike Eruzione served as the team’s captain by encouraging and inspiring his men to play their best and their hardest. His clutch performance ensured his team’s “miracle” as he scored what would be the winning goal against the Soviet Union’s team, which was heavily favored to win the gold medal. Eruzione is an expert on how to successfully take on challenges and how hard work truly pays off.

 

3. Heather Mitts is currently a FOX studio analyst for the FIFA Women’s World Cup. She also owns three Olympic gold medals from playing for the U.S. Women’s National Team in 2004, 2008, and 2012. She is one of only three female soccer players to have won gold three times. Mitts also played in professional women’s leagues and has established an impressive broadcasting career for FOX, ESPN, and even the SEC Network. Her story of success and international achievement dazzles audiences everywhere.

4. Mike Schlappi is a decorated Paralympic wheelchair basketball star. He has won four Paralympic medals and is the first American wheelchair basketball player to appear on four straight Paralympic teams. After being shot in the chest and left paralyzed, Schlappi was determined to show the world that he could persevere and live a high-quality life. He continues to do so while sharing his story on his speaking tours.

 

5. Former gymnast and current sports broadcaster Tim Daggett not only won the gold medal, but also the hearts of millions during the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. By earning a perfect score of “10” in the high bar event, Daggett delighted all who watched him, especially his American audience as he won gold in his home country. Unfortunately, he severely broke his left leg in 1987. He could not compete and was even in danger of losing his leg. Fortunately, he worked through his setback and began competing again. Today, he is an NBC Sports broadcaster, author of Dare to Dream, and a business owner who also coaches gymnastics. His life experiences and knowledge in not giving up make him a tremendous leader with excellent character.

 

6. As the ninth Captain of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team (2008 – 2015), Christie Rampone is the longest-serving captain in the team’s history and its only player to have won two Women’s World Cup Championships (1999, 2015).  Her career of over 18 years has made her an excellent motivator and leader while she demonstrates these talents to all the organizations she visits.

 

7. Three-time Olympic freestyle skier Emily Cook is the face of perseverance. After breaking both feet and sitting out of what would have been her first Olympic Games in 2002, Cook began rehabbing and trained intensely to make her skiing comeback. She went on to compete in the 2006, 2010, and 2014 Winter Olympics held in Italy, Vancouver, and Sochi respectively. Her passion and commitment to breaking down obstacles and achieving her highest potential inspires others to do the same.

 

8. As leader of the 1984 Summer Olympics men’s gymnastics team, Mitch Gaylord brought his team the gold medal while becoming the first American Gymnast in history to score a Perfect “10.” He also won a silver medal for Vaulting and two bronze medals for Rings and Parallel Bars. After the Olympics, President Ronald Reagan appointed Gaylord to the President’s Council for Physical Fitness and remained there under President George Bush, Senior as well. He also appeared in the movie, “American Anthem” as well as in numerous commercials for Diet Coke and Nike among other brands. As a master in motivation, Gaylord has been working with and inspiring organizations for over 30 years.

 

9. The career of soccer analyst Angela Hucles started with her playing for the Boston Breakers during the inaugural seasons of both the Women’s United Soccer Association (WUSA) in 2001 and with Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) in 2008. She also played for America’s national team winning two Olympic gold medals in 2004 and 2008 while placing in third during her World Cup appearances in 2003 and 2007. Her love of helping others achieve their goals on and off the field make her an excellent speaker on leadership and overcoming adversity.

 

10. Olympic medalist Jessica Mendoza has been enjoying a marvelous career as a former softball player and an ESPN baseball analyst. Her accolades include a gold medal from the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, a silver medal from the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, three World Championships and World Cup Championships, and five Stanford school records including batting average and career home runs. On June 16, 2015, Mendoza became the first female featured in ESPN’s College World Series coverage. On August 24 of that year, she became the first female Analyst for ESPN’s MLB coverage during an online Cardinals-Diamondbacks broadcast. She was also an analyst for Jake Arrieta’s no-hitter as the Cubs beat the Dodgers during her Sunday Night Baseball debut later that same week. Finally, Mendoza analyzed the 2015 American League Wild Card Game, becoming the first female Analyst in MLB postseason history. Her remarkable career proves that despite all odds, one can come out victorious on the field, in the booth, and in life.

Decathlete Bryan Clay Has Jumped Many Hurdles

art3aThe opening ceremonies for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil are about a month away!

The games will be showcasing incredible athletic talent from countries all over the world.

Olympic athletes prepare for these events for seemingly their entire lives to have the privilege to compete among the best the world of athletics have to offer.

However, some have had traveled down rougher paths than others on their way to becoming champions.

What if we told you a troubled and angry Afro-Asian teen from Hawaii would go on to win the 2008 Olympic Gold Medal in the decathlon?

Well, this is miraculously how Bryan Clay’s life unfolded.

When Clay’s parents divorced when he was a child, crushing him both mentally and physically. He grew up resenting his parents and when angered, he would act impulsively towards his loved ones and others. He also used drugs and even thought about ending his life.

However, after discovering track and field in high school, his life started turning in a positive direction.

Through extensive training and his passion for the sport, he soon became one of the most decorated decathletes of the 2000’s.

He won the silver medal in the decathlon during the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens and won the 2005 World Championships in the same event.

Clay’s moment in the sun came during the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing as he took home the gold medal in the decathlon. With 240 points earned during the event, Clay recorded the largest margin of victory since 1972. He even graced the cover of a Wheaties cereal box shortly after his win.

As his fame grew, he quickly became one of the most loved athletes in Hawaii earning the title of “Hawaii’s Hero” by the media.

Clay detailed his life in his recently published book, “Redemption,” describing how he changed his life for the better and fell in love with track and field.

He founded The Bryan Clay Foundation in 2005, which focuses on helping children reach their full potentials and give back to their communities.

Bryan Clay has shown the world that despite the hand you were dealt, anything is possible if you love what you do.
