1. Join us in Celebrating National Pet Month with a Little Help from Our Friends

Those who know Alexis knows the pure love and adoration that she has for her two dogs, Luna and Ziggy. Capitalizing on this love, Alexis took the liberty of creating a blog post that incorporates the pets of members of our team. In this article, Alexis showcases our furry friends and the lovely employees they belong to.

Breast Cancer is always unfortunate, but Alexis found a way to use her personal tragedy to bring awareness to the millions of people around the world effected by this horrible disease. This is her article in honor of breast cancer awareness.

While birthdays only come around once a year, Alexis’ light shines bright every single day of the year. We are delighted to have her on our team and wish her many more wonderful years to come. Happy Birthday Alexis!

Mold Your Success With These Three Keynote Speakers for National Mentoring Month!

In case you haven’t heard, January is National Mentoring Month.

mentoringMentors have a special place in the hearts of many. As you may know, mentors do the honor of cultivating success in the lives of others through a mutually beneficial and rewarding professional relationship. Similar to friendships, mentorships grow organically as one party sees potential in another, and seeks to help that person succeed. At Eagles Talent Speakers Bureau, we are honored to have many successful keynote speakers on our site, and a lot of these speakers have prevailed with the help of someone there to guide them. Here are three keynote speakers who have had tremendous success with their mentors:

1. Mark Thompson

When it comes to mentoring, Mark Thompson knows just how important it can be. Together with Sir Richard Branson, Thompson created Virgin United, a network that creates executive coaching and entrepreneurial innovation. This organization, along with Thompson’s keynote presentations, inspires individuals to reexamine their professional goals, while providing adequate advice and insight on how to achieve your dreams.

 

2. Kwame Jackson

Love him or hate him, it’s undeniable that Donald Trump is one of America’s most successful businessman. That’s why it’s no secret that his apprentice, Kwame Jackson became successful in his own right. As a contestant on NBC’s The Apprentice, Jackson quickly rose to the top, capitalizing on business skills that he learned from Wall Street, and The Donald himself. As a keynote speaker, Jackson emphasizes his unique business skills as he encourages audience members to go out and capitalize their entrepreneurial skills.


3. Dr. Traci Lynn

It’s not hard to feel inspired after hearing Dr. Traci Lynn speak. After all, she has accomplished a great deal of success in her lifetime. However, Traci soon found her calling after hearing motiavational speaker Les Brown light up an entire room with his fiery, yet, passionate rhetoric. Since then, Traci Lynn has become a dynamic keynote speaker in her own right, as Les Brown and other industry greats continue to embrace her messages of courage, determination, and success.

Did you know today was National Chocolate Cake Day? In honor of this day, here is a recipe from our Celebrity Chef Joey Altman. 

Ingredientschocolate-cake_300

8 ounces bittersweet chocolate

¼ pound (1 stick) unsalted butter

3 large eggs, separated

½ cup sugar

Nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray

Directions

1 pint premium vanilla ice cream (optional)

1. Melt the chocolate and butter together in the top of a double broiler over — but not touching — simmering water. Set aside to cool.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk the yolks with ¼ cup of the sugar until they are pale and light, about 5 minutes.

3. Whip the whites in a large, clean, dry bowl until they are thick and frothy, then add the remaining ¼ cup sugar and continue whipping until they form soft peaks. They should not be at all stiff or dry.

4. Fold the yolks into the melted chocolate, then fold the mixture into the whites. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 2 days.

5. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray six ramekins with vegetable oil spray and fill with batter. Bake the cakes until they are set around the outside, but are still quite runny when you poke a toothpick into the center, about 15 minutes. Unmold each ramekin on a plate while still warm. Serve two small scoops of vanilla ice cream on the side of each cake.

16 Quick Ways To Improve Your Productivity in 2016 by Jones Loflin

People are always looking for ways to improve themselves in the new year. Whether it’s their health, relationships, or their personal goals, it’s not uncommon to want to consistently find ways to better yourself. As a life balance keynote speaker, Jones Loflin thorough understands this common need. To kick off your year the right way, here are Jones Loflin’s 16 tips to boost your productivity!

It’s been about two weeks since you returned to work from your holiday break. You’re filled with a renewed sense of purpose and determination about accomplishing all the right things this year. How’s that working for you? If you’re like most people (including me), reality has begun to set in, old habits are dragging you down, and you’re already feeling overwhelmed.

6exm3hSmTo help ensure that the 2016 you want is the 2016 you create, start implementing some of these strategies into your day.

 
1. Budget to zero with your time. You don’t just throw your money around (I hope). Why would you do that with your time resources?

2. Focus more on growth and less on maintenance. Be relentless in looking at what you can delegate, transfer, or automate to make room for more strategic tasks.

3. Develop a better morning routine. Do those things that nourish you physically, mentally, and emotionally.

4. Finish more tasks before starting other ones. You limit your ability to innovate because your brain is trying to keep up with so many incomplete activities.

5. Plan your day BEFORE engaging with technology. Whether it’s social media, email, or even phone messages, you need to focus on YOUR expectations first.

6. Set specific times of the day to work with email or social media. You’ll be amazed how it helps with information overload and improves your ability to focus more deeply.

7. Keep a distractions log for one week. Once you discover the most frequent ones, take action on how to minimize their impact.

8. Have an “end of day” perspective. Ask yourself, “What 3-4 things, if finished today, would give me the greatest sense of accomplishment?”

9. Plan for all 3 areas of your life every day. We tend to be most strategic about work. Don’t forget to include your relationships and personal well-being.

10. Communicate your priorities to your team-often. Give them more opportunities to be your ally… and not your adversary.

11. Set time limits on tasks. Use a countdown timer to force yourself to move toward completion.

12. Remember that sometimes, “Done is better than perfect.” Having these items finished frees you up to focus on more important things.

13. When you feel like things are out of control… STOP. You can’t make a course correction if you are traveling too fast to read the map.

14. Reduce the urge to multitask. Take one task as far as you can with your current resources and information before moving on to another one.

15. Remember that your productivity is directly correlated with your team’s productivity. If you lead or manage people, honestly ask yourself this question: “Have I fully enabled my people to get their work done?”

16. Celebrate more “harvest moments.” Spend more time congratulating yourself for what is getting done instead of beating yourself up for what isn’t getting accomplished.
