Successful Executive Revolutionizes Approach to Achieving Goals

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (PRWEB) January 18, 2015

Joel Hopkins, entertainment executive, marathoner, tri-athlete, and happily married family man, achieved success by taking stock of what hindered his self-confidence and self-belief, then eliminating it. This helped achieve unstoppable goal-realizing momentum, which he now shares his techniques with others in his new book, Believe and Achieve. It is a book designed especially for those who have already failed their New Years Resolutions.

As a successful corporate executive in one of the most competitive industries in the world, Hopkins focuses on environment shifts referred to as saturation busters that one can incorporate for the next 30 days to prepare for any goal you desire. It is a self-help preparation that focuses on the power of the mind and the value of refreshing ones psyche.

The book isnt designed with a specific goal in mind or lofty promise, but it is a guide to putting oneself into a mindset to accomplish any goal or program desired.

Ive seen what many would call ordinary people accomplish extraordinary things, and I will show you how to accomplish them too, Hopkins said.

The goals can be as lofty as you want them to be Hopkins added. The key is in the preparation. If you are feeling average or less than average, it is only because you were taught to feel that way. It is time to retrain your belief in yourself.

In Believe and Achieve Hopkins provides a window into his years of goal accomplishing refinement that allowed him to reach his target in marathons, 10ks, triathlons, his education, his successful marriage, parenting, and a weight loss program as well as his corporate career. One never needs to struggle to the finish line, all one needs is the proper preparation and you can skip to the finish line.

Valerie Bertinelli & Veebo, Inc. Engage Newbridge Financial for M&A and Financial Advisory Services

Mesa, Arizona (PRWEB) October 28, 2014

Veebo is the premier mobile marketing solution for local business. Veebo operates at the intersection of the mobile application and local media advertising industries in a sector commonly referred to as mobile marketing. Launched in 2011, founders Tom Vitale, Valerie Bertinelli and Edward Loew set out to give small businesses the same opportunity that big businesses have in using technology to market to new and existing customers. Leveraging the booming technology available in the mobile phone market, they created the industry’s most targeted marketing program to help retailers stay connected with their customers.

By offering promotions through Veebo’s mobile app, a business can entice customers to return to that business while monitoring that customer’s engagement. Businesses will know who visited their location and also how often. They will come to know their repeat customers and gain an understanding as to how to get those same customers back in the door, increasing revenue and brand awareness.

Veebo believes that measuring customer behavior and encouraging loyalty is the fastest route for a business to increase profitability. Since 80% of a typical business’s revenue comes from 20% of its customers, Veebo provides business owners powerful tools to identify and engage those customers.

In addition to being a founder, Valerie Bertinelli endorses and actively promotes Veebo. Valerie is a two-time Golden Globe winner known for her many movie and TV roles including “One Day at a Time,” “Touched By An Angel,” and currently, “Hot in Cleveland.” After Valerie’s remarkable success with the Jenny Craig weight loss program she wrote two books; the NY Times #1 bestseller “Losing It” and its sequel, “Finding It.” Valerie also released a fitness DVD entitled “Losing It,” and a cookbook, “One Dish at a Time: Delicious Recipes and Stories from My Italian-American Childhood and Beyond.”

Lauderdale, Florida, Newbridge Financial is a highly respected, boutique financial advisory firm that specializes in emerging growth companies and dynamic industries. “We are excited to engage a company like Newbridge to help advise the company moving forward,” said Veebo’s Chief Executive Officer, Edward Loew. “I’m very enthusiastic about becoming a household name within this industry and believe this relationship will help us pave the way to our goals,” said Valerie Bertinelli. “It’s a pleasure to work with enthusiastic people that have a real vision and ability to execute their business plan,” said Guy Amico, Chairman of Newbridge Financial, Inc. “Valerie is a bigger than life personality with a passion to make Veebo a tremendous success Her and her team have built a wonderful product,” said Amico.

About Veebo, Inc.

Founded by Valerie Bertinelli, Veebo provides local retail merchants and franchises with the premier mobile marketing solution.

This does not include the mobile coupon market which accounted for an additional $ 5B of advertiser spends in 2012 and is expected to grow to $ 43B by 2017. At the local level, according to a recent Yelp study, small business owners spend on average $ 4,200 per year on local marketing and advertising, which assuming a 17.4% online/digital spend allocation equates to a $ 4B market opportunity for a quality digital marketing solution.

Beatbike’s Bailey Huff Believes Now Is The Right Time to Take Action And Get Fit

Tarzana, California (PRWEB) January 07, 2015

Beatbike spinning instructor Bailey Huff wants to inspire people to start the New Year out right by getting fit, eating right, staying healthy and above all… being happy.

Paired with appropriate nutrition, spinning is a major contributor to keeping people healthy and out of the medical care system. Experts agree that exercise in general has always been a mood booster. Seeing positive change in riders is what motivates Bailey.

In January, 2013 Bailey arrived in New York City with nothing but a one-way ticket, two suitcases and a burning desire to become a spinning instructor. Nine months later while teaching at Crank Cycle Studio on the Upper East Side, Rate Your Burn rated Bailey The Most Popular Fitness Instructor in New York City. (October 18th, 2013)

Now Bailey has brought her talents to the popular new spinning studio, Beatbike, in Tarzana, California. Beatbike is the Valley’s new spinning destination.

Bailey is a life long athlete who was a basketball star at Montclair Prep in the San Fernando Valley. (You can see Bailey play basketball on youtube) As a freshman she won the Los Angeles Sparks two on two tournament at Staples Center in front of nine thousand fans. Bailey went on to play one year at Santa Barbara City College before breaking her leg in practice. It was during her recovery from the devastating injury and a need to stay in shape that brought Bailey to her love of spinning.

Bailey says, Spinning is an incredible workout where you get rock hard thighs, carved calves and a tight butt while doing an activity thats freeing, fun and social. Because spinning is a low-impact exercise, your hips and knees are strengthened so you feel better and less beat up after a ride compared to running. When most 24-year-olds are going out at night in Los Angeles, Bailey spends the evening eating healthy, putting her playlists together before getting up at 4:30 am to teach her first class at 6 am.
