Resonating Resources

Many people find that after completing their move they are ready to make other changes in their lives. We like recommending people who have helped us, whose businesses are extensions of the good people they are.  They help us to keep changing for the better, in our public and private lives:

  • Driving Improved Results – Jeri Quinn is a business coach specializing in working with accounting firms, and creative and service businesses. She is a life changing person.  Find a way to meet her, start with a chat and my bet is she will change yours.  Her website has a wealth of resources to help entrepreneurs and all kinds of business people.
  • Delicious Life Health Coaching – Christy Goldfeder is a nutrition and wellness coach who empowers people to easily lose the last 10 or 15 pounds, reduce stress and increase energy while ditching the struggle and strict dieting. She works with clients in the New York City area as well as across the country in easy 7-day nutritional detox classes, individual coaching and group programs.
  • Bischof Legal – Having an estate plan is essential if you want to preserve more of your assets for your family and have the peace of mind knowing that your plan will be carried out the way you wish.  The Law Offices of George L. Bischof help people and families protect and preserve their assets by preparing wills, trusts, health care proxies, powers of attorney, and assisting with estates in probate or intestacy.
  • Orion iIT -They have expertise in most things Macintosh, but we came to know Jeff Haynor and his team when we engaged them to help us to setup the Daylite CRM program.  If you don’t want the time wasting frustration of wrestling with help pages, and online discussions and you DO want to adapt a great CRM program to your business needs, we recommend Orion iIT.

Moving Industry Resources

We have a wealth of resources to help you make your move easier than you could imagine.  Here are a couple sources of information we recommend checking out if you want to find out more about a particular business and/or New York transportation.

  • Better Business Bureau – accredits business through its Code of Business Practices which represents sound advertising, selling and customer service practices that enhance customer trust and confidence in business. You can use the BBB website to see business ratings and customer feedback. This is a great resource if you are not sure about a business.
  • New York State Department of Transportation – regulates all public and private transportation policies and operations in the state of New York.

You Made the Move, Now Make a Change

There can be something transformational about moving into a new space. First you get the chance to say hello to the historical parade of things you have valued enough to keep and keep again as you pack and unpack each individual item. Then there are the things you now have the opportunity to say goodbye to. Change can freshen your perspective as you make a new start living in new space.

So why stop with just the changes to your space and the things you put in it? Your move is also an opportunity to make other changes you may have been meaning to make in your life for a while.

Rainbow Movers is a company that aims to make the process of moving into your new home, office or venue as stress-free as possible. We also like it if we get the chance to help our clients take the adventure of their move even further by introducing them to some great people we know and trust, who provide extremely useful and forward-looking services.

Olympic athletes never make a move without consulting with their coaches, who become accountability partners in crystallizing and achieving goals. We could all benefit from this kind of coaching partnership in our business and personal lives. Coaches offer invaluable and personally applied expertise. I’d like to speak up for two coaches I know well, whose work has affected m in business and in my everyday life.

Jeri Quinn of Driving Improved Results is a business coach who can help you motivate your employees, grow your business, improve your results, or any other business related challenges you may be facing.  Whether you own your own business or lead a team in a company, Jeri can help you set goals effectively and develop the best strategy to reach them. She has helped Rainbow Movers immensely (watch the video above), and we can’t recommend her services highly enough.

Christy Goldfeder Delicious Life Health Coaching will help YOU take control of your diet!  Taking care of yourself means eating right, exercising, and getting the rest you need.  Simple, right? Well, we know it’s not always simple at all. That’s when an expert in nutrition and wellness like Christy can bring her experience to your individual needs. Christy’s down to earth style makes these concepts easy to understand as she coaches you. Her technique does not involve starving, but rather a diet change, timed to the seasonal availability of fresh food, and our individual seasonal body needs. One size does not fit all, but many of us can end up a size or two smaller by eating better.

Whether you focus on your business or your personal life, or both, these two outstanding professionals are dedicated to helping people just like us. The trick is that you have to be ready to work with them, ready to make the changes, and ready to enjoy all the benefits. If that works for you, then we encourage you to call Jeri and/or Christy to learn more about their services and find out how they can work with you.

Recommendation for Business IT Needs

When a person or a company does a really great job for us, we like to recommend them and their services to others.

Jeff Haynor can help you with your business IT and CRM needs.

A business partner I am happy to give a recommendation for is Orion Integrated IT. If your IT needs involve a Mac (or an office full of them) and a CRM program, we think very highly of Orion IT. They have expertise in most things Macintosh, but we came to know Jeff Haynor and his team when we engaged them to help us to setup the Daylite CRM program.  If you do not want the time-wasting frustration of wrestling with help pages and online bulletin boards, and you DO want to adapt a great CRM program to your business needs, we recommend contacting Orion IT.

Do you have a great professional or business service you can recommend to us?
