Recently, I experienced that it is far more ‘profitable’ to ring bells for the Salvation Army when you partner up with an enthusiastic four-year-old granddaughter. Let me tell you the story, which illustrates some key principles on how to get people to say “yes.” It was the Saturday before Thanksgiving. My wife, Rose, my granddaughter […]

I have lost 115 pounds of scaled weight and gained a large amount of muscle. I have gone from a 48” to a 38” waist. My health has been greatly improved, and my overall sense of well being has been restored. I really can’t put into words the feeling of accomplishment that I feel right now. This has been one of my greatest challenges and also one of my greatest victories.

Marbles store owner Lindsay Gaskins and her team are committed to helping brains age well. And they have a lot of fun doing it! Each of the brain games they sell in their store serves a specific purpose and benefits a specific part of the brain. “The whole concept for the store came out of the idea that there are new developments in science saying that if you exercise your brain you can stave off Alzheimer’s—you can live better and longer.”
My wife and I had our first child three years ago. That’s when we decided to set up a trust, should anything happen to either of us. We reached out to Zach Hesselbaum to help us out. He was very thorough and professional throughout the whole process. Zach went above and beyond to make sure that we understood every detail of setting it up and he did an excellent job. We recently had our second child a few months ago. With the new baby, he helped us make the necessary revisions to the trust. Zach made this process great for us! I would definitely recommend using him for any of your estate planning needs!
