Many have made wealth building one of their resolutions for the New Year, and for good reason, the stock market is in the midst of one of the best starts in history. There is certainly much excitement surrounding the stock market right now, and if you are invested you are probably also feeling good that you are making money due to the market moving to the upside. As any experienced investor knows, times like these can change quickly. Tell me, will you be ready if and when the market begins to fall or when the market feels like a roller coaster ride begins again? It may begin later than sooner but you’d be wise to start right now in planning with a watchful eye so you are prepared to take action when the ride becomes bumpy.

To be ahead of any change in the market you want to keep a level head. When challenging times arrive it’s important to your success to learn how to manage your emotions within the ebb and flow of investing. It’s only natural to become excited about the current state of the market but a wise investor knows that wealth and well-being go together. If you adopt this mindset throughout your wealth journey you will be more than ready for any adversity when challenging times occur. Staying calm with a spirit of balance can help you overcome any situation because you are approaching the ups and downs calmly and with a positive attitude instead of the feeling of anxiousness or overwhelmed by circumstances you have no control over. Keeping your emotional self together in a calm manner can make all the difference when seeking to make intelligent investment decisions.

Wouldn’t you like to feel great and to live a life without fear and anxiety? Emotions range from one end of the spectrum to the other and it’s quite easy to get lost in them if you aren’t aware of how yours impact your life. New Year’s resolutions are wonderful but taking care of mental and emotional health is important every day of the year. Building your wealth will require a systematic approach. What I’ve done within my own journey is to add a simple checklist in different areas of my life to help raise my awareness for what changes I need to make so that I continue improving when those anxious moments creep in. I’ve found just in the past few weeks that these moments have become shorter and shorter and the list has actually helped me increase my life balance and inner peace faster.

There are other steps you can take that will help you in gaining more inner peace you are seeking. You can also feel better by including daily rituals into your life. I have daily rituals I follow, such as journaling, working out, and listening to music.  So, how do you start?  Picture your ideal self, and then break down the steps needed to get from where you are now to that ideal person you picture. You want to stay realistic and create a plan that will help push through each step and through days of overwhelm without stress. Don’t make things more complicated than they need to be or you may find yourself not sticking with your plan. You want to approach each of your goals in a manner that will empower you.

When it comes to your wealth journey, you will want to view your finances in a way that doesn’t cause stress or anxiety and will allow you to map out a plan that works with your vision not against it. If you approach your plan in this manner you will place yourself in a position of strength and become able to make difficult decisions easier; which, in turn, will increase your ability to handle any change within the investment climate in a calm strategic manner thus moving even closer to your investment goals. This ideal may seem out of reach at times but stick with it. A well thought out investment plan along with good investment habits and a strong money mindset will be the tools you need in order to meet challenges without stress, frustration, and overwhelm. The feeling of more inner peace will be well worth all of your effort.

Nothing is beyond your reach when learning to shift your money mindset. First, learn to focus on what makes you feel good and help keep your spirits up for doing so will keep you from feeling uncomfortable or confused. When you are relaxed and confident you are in the flow and can’t help but feel good especially when you remember that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.

I thought it would be good to share some of my thoughts and a few investment tips on how to handle a stormy stock market environment when large up and down swings so you can keep avoiding that feeling of being out of balance.

A great place to start is to become informed about your investments. Where do you get your financial updates? Are you confident that your current investment strategy will do well when the stock market is not rising?  By reviewing your portfolio now, you can be more comfortable with your investment holdings and avoid unnecessary stress. Now is not the time to walk away and hide. Now is the time to take a sincere interest in what is happening so you can make informed decisions about what needs to change.

If you oversee your own investments then you want to have an investment strategy in place that will meet your needs over time. Begin with a diversified portfolio that suits your needs within a time frame that will help you meet your goals and objectives.

A good investment strategy also starts with a clearly defined objective. Your strategy needs to be flexible and allows you the ability to exit quickly in order to reduce your exposure if the stock market starts to fall.  Lock in some of your profits. You never go broke taking a profit.

You also could seek the personalized advice of an investment professional to answer your specific questions one-on-one.  What is the review process that you have in place for your investment portfolio?  Do you have a strategy to manage risk? You can review your portfolio or have a professional do this for you.  Simple changes in your current portfolio can help you cut your risk and increase the potential return.

Below are some investment tips to start you on the right path for building wealth.

11 Simple Investment Tips To Increase Your Investment Success

  1. Be willing to invest in you for your well-being and inner peace. Work on you as part of your everyday life and reap the benefits.
  2. Track your investments to see how they are performing on your phone or the internet. One of my favorite free resources is Yahoo ( If you have an iPhone download the application “Stocks”. You can follow the market activity easily, your favorite ETFs, stocks and mutual funds to see how much they are rising or falling.
  3. Diversify your investments that include a broad mix of stocks and bonds. As you grow older it’s a good idea to move your assets into less-risky investments. A quick rule of thumb is to have an allocation to bonds that is equal to your age.
  4. Don’t let one investment make or break your investment account. Something you didn’t expect could occur at any time.
  5. Make your investment decisions with the current trend of the market. Your risk is larger when you go against the trend. If you do, don’t marry your investment. Get in and get out quickly.
  6. Have a flexible portfolio that is liquid. Keep your entire portfolio in mind when making changes in your investment portfolio.
  7. Manage Your Risk. Know in advance how much risk that you are willing to take.
  8. Have a plan to protect your winning investments. With a simple exit strategy of raising your exit point as your stock moves higher, you will let your profits run.
  9. Avoid big losses to achieve consistent gains.  Cut your losses quickly so they don’t get out of control. Make it a priority to protect your investments before they move too far against you.
  10. Don’t get into the mentality of not wanting to take a loss. It takes 100% profit to cover a 50% loss.
  11. Review your investment portfolio to see if any individual stock, an exchange-traded fund (ETF), or bond position exceeds 5% of your overall portfolio. If it’s not performing, or it’s too volatile consider reducing at least part of your investment.

Start using just a few of these tips now, and see how your perception about money starts to change. Make it a practice to spend some time watching your money so that you will be prepared for changes that occur and you are ready for potential decisions that may arise so you are able to make those informed decisions with a calm spirit. Even small changes in your portfolio can have a positive impact. When you take care of your inner well-being your ability to handle the ups and downs of the market will become easier over time. Changes don’t have to be all at once and can easily be broken down into even smaller tasks over time. If you find that you are still feeling a bit unsure of your path to wealth, remember you can step away and get some help to guide you through the process. Stop hiding or avoiding talking about money. You don’t have to feel stressed or overwhelmed by it, you truly can build your wealth with confidence and inner peace.  Decide today that NOW is the time to feel good about money. I’m here to help you on your journey to wealth.

Fun video with the Maccabeats and a tasty recipe of Low-Fat Potato Latkes

One of my favorite times of the year is the Jewish holiday called Chanukah also known as the Festival of Lights. Time moves by quickly. Our children have grown into wonderful young adults,  I’m so grateful and thankful our family keeps the tradition going each year getting together, sharing our love, and having fun celebrating Chanukah together.

Chanukah in 2017 starts at the sunset on December 12 and will continue for 8 days until the sunset on December 20th. Chanukah is a tradition to give young children gifts for eight nights.   As with other major Jewish holidays, candles are lit, appropriate blessings are made, followed by a festive meal with loved ones.

Wishing all of you who celebrate a very happy Chanukah.

Chanukah celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, of purity over adulteration, of spirituality over materiality.

Chanukah Customs:

  • Eating foods fried in oil — latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiyot (doughnuts)
  • Playing with the dreidel (a spinning top on which are inscribed the Hebrew letters nun, gimmel, hei and shin, an acronym for Nes Gadol Hayah Sham, “a great miracle happened there”);
  • Giving of Chanukah gelt, gifts of money, to children.


Listen to the Maccabeats, Chanukah

potato latkas

Enjoy this delicious recipe for Low-Fat Potato Latkes

Low-Fat Potato Latkes

  • 3 teaspoons vegetable oil, preferably canola
  • 2 pounds russet potatoes (about 4 or 5), peeled
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped red onion (about 1 medium onion)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose white flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten

Set oven racks at middle and lower positions of the oven. Preheat oven to 450° F. Prepare 2 baking sheets by brushing with 1 teaspoon oil on each sheet.

Grate potatoes using hand grater or shredding blade of food processor. Place in a large bowl and add onions, flour, salt and pepper; toss to mix well. Add egg, egg white and remaining 1 teaspoon oil; toss to mix.

Drop onto prepared cookie sheets by the tablespoonful and press lightly to form cakes. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom. Flip latkes, switch position of baking sheets, and bake about 5 more minutes, or until golden brown.

Transfer to a platter, arranging browned-side up, and serve with no-fat sour cream or applesauce, or both. May be made ahead and stored overnight in fridge. Reheat at 350° F for 10 minutes. Makes about 24 latkes.

Tip: Use the grater attachment of a food processor to simultaneously grate both the potatoes and the onion. Set the shredded material in a colander over a bowl to catch the dripping liquid. When the grated potato-onion mixture stops squishing combine with the egg, egg white and remaining teaspoon of oil as above. Carefully pour out the liquid collected from under the grated potatoes and onions, taking care to save the white cake which has formed at the bottom of the bowl (the potato starch). Add this white stuff to the latke mixture and mix well. Complete the above recipe as written.

When was the last time you celebrated a milestone that had real meaning to you? One you can look back upon with fond remembrance. If one doesn’t come to mind it may be time to ask why. Three highly treasured milestones that come to my mind is when I went to dinner with my mom after I made her a millionaire, bowling my first 300, and holding my first book “Journey to Wealth” in my hand. I still smile whenever I think of those moments. Sometimes the word milestone can be overwhelming but I’m here to tell you attaining them can be fun while you fully enjoy the process along the way.

Remember too they become much sweeter when you celebrate your milestone once it becomes a reality.

Now, what about you? Are you going through the motions of each day or are you living a joyous life, filled with happiness, fun, and inner peace? Living life to its fullest helps if you are passionate about what you do. When you make a commitment, are loyal, and find others who are the same to you that’s when good things happen. Achieving goals, whether short, intermediate or long-term gives a feeling of accomplishment, and confidence. I have discovered time and time again that some of my greatest challenges have served as great motivation and inspiration along the way. 

Recently, I celebrated my 35th anniversary working in my corporate job. This milestone is rare in our society today. How many people do you know have been at the same company for 35 years?  This milestone was only possible through commitment, discipline, and mutual loyalty by the company and myself. A lot of change has occurred from 35 years ago, many hurdles were overcome, good times together, and many memories shared. It was an honor  I embraced and will be very grateful for forever.  What an intense feeling of accomplishment knowing I achieved 35 years of making a difference in people’s lives while helping them build wealth. It was very important for me to express my appreciation to my the colleagues and bosses who have supported me through the years.

In an effort to express my gratitude I decided to write a poem. It took me several days to find the right words (and many drafts too). Years ago, I would not have had the courage to share my feelings in such a personal way and as a result, I didn’t write or do any public speaking. What I did do was allow fear to get in the way. What helped me to break out of my comfort zone was being part of Toastmasters (an international speaking group). The experience broke the ice and greatly helped me to get over some of my worst public speaking fears. The courage to push through those challenges despite my fear only came about after attending  meetings on a consistent basis and having the discipline to stick with it no matter how I felt inside. The support I received was phenomenal and it helped be a support to others too. The experience helped me to have fun reading the poem to my colleagues all the time using hand gestures, making good eye contact, and adding humor while sharing my heartfelt words of gratitude and appreciation. That would have never been possible in years past, and putting myself out there made me smile  when I could see the poem was well received. What can you do today to move beyond your comfort zone so you too can move past your most elusive milestone? 

One way to help you discover how is to take a moment and think about what goals would bring you closer to happiness. What would inspire you so much that you would be fully committed and put yourself even closer to celebrating your own milestone? Below I’ve shared some more insights that will place you in a better position for making your dreams a reality. 

3 Simple Sure Fire Practices For Your Happiness Embracing Your Milestone

Practice Gratitude –

 Keep a gratitude journal and list those things you are grateful for. Before you go to sleep think about what good things happened during the day that brought you joy.  Practice gratitude and see the difference how you will start to shift to feeling more positive and enjoying the little things in life.

. Read a book, prepare your favorite meal, or call a friend you haven’t made the time for. Pamper yourself, light some candles and relax. Listen to your favorite relaxing music. Get a pedicure, manicure or massage. Drink some of your favorite relaxing tea, or have a cup of hot lemon water. Whatever it is, make it a priority to do something that makes you happy, something that gives you joy, something that you love, every day. 

Be quiet and stay present in the moment. You are probably busy, on the run, and you have a large to accomplish list. It’s a challenge to be still and quiet.  Make the commitment every day that you will take 5 minutes to just be. (I’m going to join you on this commitment). Allow yourself to be quiet and still. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and let it out slowly. Listen to the sounds of your body and your surroundings.  Relax and let your mind, body, and spirit be present in the moment.  Don’t focus on any thoughts about the future or the past. If they come up tell them to go away.   Allow yourself to feel the moment and relax.  Being quiet and staying present for five minutes a day goes a long way to relieve stress, giving you a sense of peace, and re-energizing your mind and spirit.

What goals are you working on? Is there anything you have had on the back burner you desire but need to apply more discipline and consistency? The time is now, don’t wait, and enjoy the journey! Apply the above three simple practices. Remember to incorporate gratitude, do something you love every day to make you happy, and be silent as you stay present in the moment. Start by discovering what you love to do and you find yourself celebrating many more successes as you reach the milestones within your life.

For most people, holding down a job and earning a paycheck is their main strategy for achieving financial security. This alone will not get you where you want to go. Isn’t it time for you to create the lifestyle you want and deserve? What actions are you taking to help you grow your wealth? Do you have a system in place to move you closer to your goals? The answers may not be clear. However, in order to live the lifestyle, you’ve dreamed about, you will need to have a plan to turn your income into wealth. The type of wealth that keeps building if you find yourself out of a job or physically unable to work. The type of wealth is what turns dreams into reality.

Wouldn’t it be great if you were able to stop beating yourself up over those past experiences that have held you back from achieving your financial goals or kept you from doing more of what you love to do each day? Guilt and regret are powerful emotions which can hamper your ability to make the powerful decisions needed in order to create the life you’ve dreamed of.

. Changes with less stress and strain because they are made over time and do not have to happen all at once.

 Whether you’re under 20, in your mid 40’s, or over 65, it’s possible to make life changes for the better that involve money. You ideally can start today with small adjustments that will make a big difference for your future. Changes so you will ultimately enjoy getting out of bed so you can do what you love to do and then finish the day sleeping peacefully instead of worried about your finances.

How can you make this happen? Well, I’m glad you asked…

The first step is to decide NOW (not tomorrow, next week, or next year) your financial security is a priority.  The next step is changing your mindset from seeing yourself only working for your money and shifting to the understanding it’s important now your money will need to work for you. How? This will be done by investing in the stock market. 

It may have crossed your mind and you now wonder if you’d be taking a chance with your hard earned money by investing in the stock market. Keep in mind that although stocks are riskier than keeping money in a savings account or Certificate of Deposit (CD’s) with a fixed yield, they have historically had higher returns that beat inflation helping you grow your wealth. That’s great news for you because it opens the door of opportunity for you to generate an additional source of income. Again, your money will be working for you.

It’s also important to note that I’m not suggesting you should jump all in. The idea is to start slow and small. I want you to be successful with your finances but I also want you to understand this shift in thinking requires you to take steps that may take you out of your comfort zone. This is why it’s important to make small adjustments because as you grow with your knowledge and experience you will find those decisions will ultimately pay off with feelings of ease and satisfaction.

One of the best strategies I’ve seen through my years of experience is to begin your financial plan with long and short term goal oriented action steps that are fun, simple, and practical for you. Simply put, these goals fit you and your life. You are not at a loss with this type of approach because as your skills improve, your comfort level and confidence will develop and continue to grow as well. Making adjustments as needed will also help your success. Start using a few of these tips now, and see how they will support you to grow your wealth. Please feel free to share your experiences.

9 Practical Financial Rituals for Growing Your Wealth

  1. Diversify your investments into a broad mix of stocks and bonds. Don’t put all 100 percent of your money in stocks. Use mutual funds which lets you own a mix of stocks or bonds in a portfolio to manage your risk. Investing in mutual funds that diversify with a group of stocks or bonds is much safer than putting all your money into one or two stocks or bonds.
  2. Review your investment asset allocation periodically. Start saving and investing as early as you can. Create a plan you will follow. Small sums of money add up over time.
  3. As you grow older it’s a good idea to move your assets into less-risky investments. A quick rule of thumb is to have an allocation to bonds that is equal to your age. When the market climate is positive, you could increase your allocation to have a little more equity, however, have an exit strategy for when the trend changes.
  4. Track your investments costs. High trading costs eat into your gains over time.
  5. Keep control of your emotions when investing. The stock market can go up and down very quickly.  Know your time horizon for investing whether it’s for 1 year or less, 5, 10, or 20 years or more.
  6. Don’t have more money invested than you are comfortable with. Its ok to reduce your invested position in small increments. If you are worried and not sleeping at night, you are too invested. Manage your risk. Avoid taking large losses on your investments. Remember small losses are the best losses you can have.
  7. Don’t be afraid to talk about our finances. Don’t hide from the conversation. If you are feeling a bit unsure, look for some help from a coach, investment adviser, or a financial planner who could help you create changes to support you on your journey to wealth.
  8. Take advantage to contribute into a retirement savings plan if offered by your employer. Start with a few percent of your income and then increase the contribution to 10%.
  9. If you need to withdraw money to live on because you are not working, see if you can limit yourself to withdrawing 4 percent or less a year. In this way, you will preserve your capital for later years in life so you don’t run out of money. 

Financial security is important. Take responsibility for your money by developing practical financial rituals that will create a lifestyle you want and deserve. Your plan doesn’t have to be hard or disruptive to your everyday life. Start your plan now and fulfill your hopes, dreams, and goals growing your wealth.


Remember to share:

It’s been well-established by many successful entrepreneurs that intuition plays a crucial role in their success.

Steve Jobs, Sir Richard Branson, Oprah and Arianna Huffington …. among others have been quoted several times regarding intuition.

This is one of my favorites:


Yet despite the “understanding” that this is a necessary skill to succeed in business and life, few people take the time to immerse themselves into truly developing their intuitive gifts (unless they are of course healers or psychics).

But for the rest of us mortals, it appears like there’s something akin to: “yeah, yeah…that’s nice, but I need some REAL skills, I need some PRACTICAL skills” to grow my business.

Perhaps it feels like it’s such an abstract set of skills that we are unsure about HOW to develop them, HOW to practice or HOW to use them effectively in our business.

Our world is dominated by an over-abundance of masculine energy. The energy of yang is the energy of action, movement and getting things done. It’s the energy of manifestation and the masculine energy that we, Westerners, have come to revere so deeply.

This is the energy of action and results. What our entire economy is based on. We value “hard work”. We believe we must work hard in order to succeed and therefore if we want success the more we work, the more “exalted” we become in our minds.

There are so many common beliefs that cement this practice:

“No pain, No Gain”;

“Work now, Play later.”

“Money doesn’t grow on trees,”

“Early bird, gets the worm.”

And yet…consistent action, movement, and hard work are pointless if there’s no depth, no purpose and no integrated meaning behind our actions.

There’s also a point of diminishing results.

As a high-performance psychologist, one of the things we teach people is that there is this “Inverted U Theory”, which states that increases in effort and arousal will yield a performance increase…

Up to a certain point (ONLY), after which, further increases in effort and arousal will yield a DECREASE in performance. To the point that the harder you work, the worse results you will get.

As “old” as this theory and practical piece of knowledge is in our performance psychology field, it hasn’t actually permeated the everyday world.

People are STILL working as hard as they can, waving a flag of pride and martyrdom until they land in burnout or experience health consequences.

Then we have this “wake up moment”, but sadly, we don’t know HOW to do things differently, and as hard as we TRY…it’s difficult to circumvent well-established wiring and neuro pathways that “tell us” that hard work is the ONLY road to success.

So.HOW do we extricate ourselves from this merry-go-round?

How do we exit the fast train in which Gurus, exploit our doubts and sense of inadequacy by selling us on yet “another tactical skill” (webinars, live events, FB ads, you name it), that will keep us in this constant feedback loop of not-good-enough, overwork, overwhelm and burnout?

We need the balancing form of Feminine energy or yin. The RECEPTIVE, the intuitive and the loving, collaborative nature of this energy. It is an energy of depth, insight, wisdom, and magic.

The answer is simple in essence and complex in execution (which is why not more people are doing it.)

Yep. It’s that simple. The difficulty comes when our minds and egos get involved. And the smarter you are, the more you’ll struggle to listen and follow your intuition because you are so accustomed to relying on your cognition.


When we can connect and use our intuition we are able to become more efficient and maximize the work we do.

In the most basic sense, intuition is about LISTENING…is about developing the listening skills to “hear” your Highest Guidance, but also to tune into your ideal clients and sense what do they need?

What would be most beneficial and valuable to them?

At what level would they be able/willing to invest in?

And if you can be perceptive enough to receive this information and KNOW what will be of most value, you will circumvent so much time, energy and frustration as you’d be tuned into what you need to provide.

Following this pathway, I’ve generated up to $18,500 in a single day and built a multi 6-Figure Business.

Intuition will allow you to KNOW WITH CLARITY AND CERTAINTY what is YOUR path.

WHO to hire as a mentor.

WHAT opportunity to pursue that will support your greatest evolution.

And it allows you to enter a state of grace and flow.


There is a simple and joyful pathway to this: PLAY.

Yep, you heard me right. Play.

Play is the action that returns us back to our “natural selves”. That connects us to “our inner child” where creativity, innovation, adventure, intuition, and curiosity reside.

There is obviously so much more to developing your intuition in powerful ways that will serve your business and life, but PLAY can be a GATEWAY through which you can begin to establish this connection.

And of course, we’ll weave in some of the science and the practices to get you there!

Life has a funny way of causing you to grow. I’ve noticed over the years that you either get the lesson or situations will keep appearing until you do. One of the best decisions I did in my life almost eight years ago was when I was asked, “Why are you so negative”? This question was the turning point for me to realize it was time to become committed to my own personal growth. At some deep level I understood I needed to create changes within my outlook that would release my negativity so I could begin living a healthier happier life. Since then I’ve worked at becoming a better person and enjoying life more. There is still more to be done but I can say that now I’m less stressed, more fit, and feel a sense of freedom that had escaped me.  Magic happens when you get out of your own way. This path of growth hasn’t always been easy (and I have had plenty of bumps along the way) but it’s a journey well worth the effort.

If your life isn’t where you had hoped and you find yourself struggling, tell me, what would it be like for you to have your days filled with better health, more wealth, and an abundance of happiness? What would you change in order to live the life you desire? At times it can appear well beyond your reach, but you can create all these things and more by being the best you can be right now. Nothing more, your best self at this very moment, and then the next moment after that. Change can be overwhelming and I’ve found small steps get better results.

. The more you know and understand about yourself the better. Happiness is a choice, and the journey begins as a result of the decisions you make along the way. Better information will allow you to make better choices.

Taking the first steps toward creating your ideal life might seem challenging but the effort is rewarding when you do what is needed and follow through. What you will want to focus on next is the process of investing in your personal growth and overall well-being. Empower yourself by deciding within your mind and heart you will do the work now. You are past settling for what simply comes your way. Now is the time to harness your inner power. Look around and you will see many opportunities available right at your fingertips. All you have to do is grab them and they will help get you there. It’s time to put energy and effort into yourself. You are worth it! Let today be the day you invest in you.

We are all a work in progress. There is no reason to wish when you can take a proactive part in making your dreams a reality and live life to the fullest. There will be those that oppose you but don’t give up on your dreams. Practice will get you where you want to be.

Once your momentum gets going you will love seeing your progress and the benefits you’ll experience from investing in your inner growth. The best part is you don’t have to do it alone. You can find supportive people you trust and feel comfortable around to help you along the way. Make the intention and someone will appear in your life exactly at the right time.  You know the old saying “When the student is ready the teacher appears”. It’s so true! Out of the blue, when you least expect them to arrive there they are. This was my experience while on my well-being journey of self-discovery and it can happen to you too. Keep your eyes and your heart open, opportunities are everywhere.

Below are many of the important lessons I’ve learned along the way. Pick a few to focus on and share your results. Thank you for being in my community. I’m here for you.
