#3  Specialization

- excelling in client segmentation is the hallmark of top advisors. Your able to demonstrate your core values in your stories that people can relate to. This brings value to the relationship. 

We have developed relationships with Family’s that have businesses. Those that have an entrepreneurial insight that in many ways flows from our tax business. We have a lot of legacy clients and referrals from this foundation built over the last thirty years. We need to get better at telling our story. We have reduced risk by providing SRI practices in our investment solutions and portfolios that use pension management asset allocation processes. Stable returns with less risk. All this reduces risk, providing confidence and word of mouth opportunities to share what we have done, all within a confidential environment. Our team continues to grow and specialize within the different areas we discover are important to Achieve Life’s Major Goals.

Smoking Vice business

“Altria will pay a USD$2 billion bonus to Juul's 1,500 employees as part of the price for its stake in the e-cigarette maker. While that averages out to USD$1.3 million a head, actual payouts in the form of special dividends will depend on factors such as longevity at the company, CNBC says. The maker of Marlboro cigarettes is paying a total $12.8 billion for a 35% stake, valuing the California startup at $38 billion. Juul recently said employees can only vape outside company facilities to conform with laws governing the use of tobacco in the workplace. • Here’s what people are saying.

 

Wow, nice vice bonus  1.3 million average for 1500

Many may know, in our own area in Smiths Falls, Canopy Growth has created over 100 millionaires that work at this local company. I understand everyone that works there is a shareholder of some sorts. Those early employees got vested early and have benefited immensely for working their buts off and taking a chance on a new industry.

Employees investing in the company they work for is a very good thing. I see many examples of this happening with those that are public companies and some private companies. Good lessons here for private companies and employees to work towards.

Kids and Money thoughts

The dead bird under the tree is the one that never learned how to fly, so are you a dead bird or are you going to learn how to fly.

Thoughts on allowances, work for kids, learning lessons , equate the value of money to time worked , time and money are interlinked

I am reminded of my brother in law to be and what he has set up with his kids to earn money, it kinda neat and inspiring.

Living on A Knife's Edge

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wseM6wWd74&list=PLhhVyaUmOQupT95UiO_74c0-wATcRxceV&index=13

Interesting video on how our cells stay young. Some great lessons to learn here in biology from the research in Pond Scum.

Health Span vs Disease Span  ... 

Do you have control over the length of your telomeres ?  Chronic stress effects , seeing things in a new light, seeing into the lives of the real people, the effect on  people who get worn down, the patterns.

The longer in a tough situation and the more you perceive your under stress the shorter your telomeres and the quicker your untimely death will occur. Interestingly you can change that through thought perception, so there is hope.  Be resilient to stress, a day in, day out, challenge, so you can control how you age way down to your cell level by how you feel about it, good attitude results in better aging process. Improve attitude, it matters, negative thoughts creeps up cortisone and damages your telomeres , vs a challenge to tackle where the blood flows and it is good, bring it on and you do just fine. 

You have power to change what is happening to your own telomeres. Factors outside our own skin, social , as early a childhood, all impact your telomeres and have a  long term effect We are interconnected, we can impact our own and others. 

What legacy will be have , will we invest in the next generation and what will that impact have on maybe the whole world ?

Are you curious, how will you make a difference?

Now you can protect your telomeres and how will you make sure the world invests in curiosity for the sake of the generations that come after us?

Good questions, now what are we going to do? For me, I am going to nip those negative thoughts with positive solutions. ~ TLR

OMEGA STEWARDSHIP ®

I am often asked what is Omega Stewardship ® ? 

There is a number of trademarks that I have created since starting the business back in 1988. They represent the idea that we can somehow condense what we do in a few words. The goal is that it helps people understand what we do quickly and to the point. It's an incredible idea to think one can do that, considering everything that we do. This process is certainly not unique to our business, and for business owners, employee's, volunteers of charities etc it's a great process to go through. 

I will tackle each of these as I move forward with the site and explain a little about the history and back story behind some of these words that we use to describe what we do and what we want to see , our vision, mission, and core values.

Omega Stewardship ® is one of the trademarks that I created over the years. It is a process that uses industries best practices and is a mind set of continual improvement. In it's simplest form it describes our process of what we want to accomplish, the value that we want to bring and some of the principals that we want to apply and accomplish  in all our activities of service to our clients at Brock Shores Financial. The three lines below covers the main goals that I feel will help towards the mission of #ImprovingFutures

Full Circle

Well, It's Nov 19th, 2017 a Sunday morning and I'm back on the Ning Network relearning about this community platform. I first used this platform about 8 years ago. I had setup omegastewarship.ning.com for my business and govern.ning.com when I ran for Council in Elizabethtown. I'm kind frugal and I was enjoying the benefits of their free site and then they changed, I wasn't big enough to have the paying ones, so when they changed I was not too happy, I did subscribe for awhile, however in those days, Facebook was just getting going and that was free, and I also had a few blogs on the Blog.ca site which was a small annual fee. I made a decision to abandon the Ning site, I had multiple options which seemed to be very cost effective, so made a decision to do so. Now, here I am "Full Circle".

Right away, I am impressed, and remember how simple and flowing this platform was. So, first five minutes, I'm signed up,  I'm engaged and feeling good about this decision. 

As I am doing this first blog, I am thinking a variety of thoughts. One of the things I would like to do is setup business's and all the little things that are required to do so, I'm very good at it. I think it is a marketable value added service and have had some good success helping others get going with their ideas. So, I'm going to add a few tips along the way which can help anyone launch that great idea on a good foundation. If your just starting out or wanting to rebrand your business or change the structure, you will be able to seek our Family Office here at Brock Shores Financial and we will be able to support your dream. 

Well I better stop, and go for a walkabout ad get some fresh air and enjoy the fresh snow that is falling, make some tracks.

Have a blessed day
