Dr. RJ Jackson reviews the difference between therapy and life coaching for teens and tweens.

Austin, Texas – September 15th, 2021 – Most parents, when they have a child that is going through something tough, whether they have been diagnosed with something, maybe they have been bullied, or maybe they see that their child has been a little depressed, immediately think of therapy.

Therapy has always been around. However, even though life coaching has been around for some time, is new in comparison and still unknown.

In fact, I am one of the few life coaches for teenagers in the entire country.

I want to share with you why life coaching may be the better first choice over therapy.

There is definitely a need for therapy, but what we found is that it only applies to around 3% of teenagers. So, only 3% of teenagers will need therapy. This is usually when they just lost one of their parents. That is tough, I don’t think life coaching is great for that and therapy would be a better route.

When someone suffers severe depression where they are hospitalized, I believe therapy and life coaching together work great for that.

But ultimately it’s really severe situations when there is mourning that typical therapy is needed.

What we find is since life coaching is not as known as therapy most parents choose therapy even though it may not be the best fit for their teen.

I know it’s my job to make life coaching more known, but in the meantime parents who only know therapy have a void for teenagers who are really not struggling to a degree severe enough for therapy.

Most parents say “my kid is fine, they have a few friends, I know that they could be a straight-A student but they are making B’s and C’s, there is really no big issue that I can send them to a therapist, but I know that they have more potential in them than what they are showing”.

This leaves a void for solving these issues and that is where life coaching comes in.

Life coaching helps those parents who know their teenager is not maximizing their full potential.

It also is the first step If your child is either depressed, anxious, or has been diagnosed with ADHD, Aspergers, or other diagnoses.

For this life-coaching is the preferred option.

Another difference between therapy and life coaching is the processes they use.

Therapy looks to diagnose a child. They want to put a label on a child. I don’t want people to think that therapy is bad. It’s not bad, that’s just the way the process works.

When someone goes to a therapist, they’re looking for a problem, they find the problem, they labeled that problem, and then they start to use strategies and tools to work through that.

The problem that I found over the many years I’ve been coaching, is that a lot of these problems continue to be problems. Many parents have experiences with a therapist working with their child for six or more years and the child still suffers.

Right away, parents notice life coaching is a completely different picture.

We don’t see problems.

When I meet with teens and tweens in my sessions I never say you all have this problem or that problem.

I don’t label them.

I do the opposite.

There are no problems.

I see the children or teenagers, for who they really are, a person who has an unbelievable amount of potential.

My objective is to get results, not a diagnosis.

It is my goal to help all teens, tweens, and parents achieve their greatest potential.

Dr. RJ shares three steps to ensure success for middle school and high school students in the 2021 school year.

Austin, Texas – August 17, 2021 – Back to school can be exciting but stressful for both parents and students. There are so many pressures teens and tweens face when starting a new year of middle school or high school.

They are worried about getting the grades they need to get into college, making new friends and finding their place, handling the load of new class schedules, teachers, and extracurriculars.

Dr. RJ has a simple 3-step formula to help parents, teens, and tweens overcome the stresses of a new school year and set them up for success in middle school and high school years.

When following these 3-Steps Teens and Tweens will have more focus, become more organized, have increased confidence, and become more motivated.

These skill sets lead them to get better grades, make more friends, handle the pressures of a new school year, not give in to peer pressure and become capable of handling the unknown.

Dr. RJ. is a certified Teen Life Coach in the United States and has been transforming the lives of teens, tweens, and their parents for many years. After working with thousands of teens he discovered that you can create success by simply directing teenager’s focus to the one thing that produces growth, excitement, and motivation, and that is goals.

When teens and tweens shift their focus from problems of the past to possibilities of the future, their mood changes, their attitude changes, their emotions change. They then have everything they need to be overcome the stresses of going back to school and gives them the skills they need to be successful.

However, Dr. RJ finds that teenagers rarely have real goals. What teenagers have are wants, desires, hopes, and dreams. But not goals. To be successful they have to shift their focus and turn those wants, desires, hopes, and dreams into actual goals, and here are the three steps to do that.

Goals have the following three components:

First, we have to set intentions. An intention is a direction you want to go. This could be related to academics, sports, extracurriculars, relationships, or anything else that is important to you or your teen. It is the ability to see a destination. To have a finish line in mind.

Second, we need an action plan. Once you have set your intention and you know what you want to achieve, then you need a plan to get there. With the road trip analogy, this is the time to map out which highways you will take. The action plan is your step-by-step instructions to get to your destination. If your wants, desires, hopes, and dreams do not have daily and weekly planned actions in place, then it is not a goal.

Third, you must set a time frame. This is simply how long will it take to get your want, experience your desire, turn your hope into a reality, or live your dream. How long will it take? Using the road trip analogy, your time frame would be how long will it take for you to reach your destination. I bet if you ask your child how long will it take for them to accomplish their “goal,” they would not be able to give you an accurate time frame.

As I was explaining what goals are, did you immediately started to think about the possibilities for yourself?

For a moment your worries and stresses disappeared. You experienced excitement knowing that there are some goals that you yourself want to pursue. This is exactly what will happen with your teen or tween when they start setting real goals for themselves.

As we begin this new school year it is important to overcome the stresses a new school year can bring to both parents and teens. This is the perfect time to help teens and tweens succeed not only in school but in life.

Einstein’s Home Services Urges Homeowners to Pay Attention to Signs That Their Water Heater is Damaged and in Need of Repair

Phoenix, AZ, June 8, 2021 – Einstein’s Home Services wants to highlight the importance for members of the community to pay close attention to the state of their water heaters.

It’s easy to take hot water for granted. After all, people don’t spend much time thinking about their water heater under normal circumstances. But when the system goes down, it means homeowners can’t wash their clothes and dishes or take comfortable showers. That will interfere with a family’s schedules to get everyone off to school and work.

Worst of all, a broken water heater can leak, suddenly flooding the home and causing a great deal of damage.

Fortunately, homeowners can avoid such problems with regular maintenance and inspections.

Signs a Water Heater Is Damaged

There are cues to pay attention to when a water heater is suspected of being in need of repairs. For many homeowners, the first sign of trouble is the water no longer seems to get as hot as it used to. Or, the water barely stays warm, no matter how long the owner waits for it to heat up.

According to Einstein’s Home Services, malfunctioning water heater signs to be on the lookout for include:

  • Loud knocking sounds coming from the water heater
  • Standing water appears below the water heater unit
  • Temperature is inconsistent
  • Higher than usual water bills, indicating a slow leak

 

How Einstein’s Home Services Can Help With Water Heater Problems

The professionally trained technicians at Einstein’s Home Service are certified in water heater inspections, maintenance, repairs, and installation.

They receive ongoing continued education to ensure they follow current industry best practices. This is one of the reasons why the company has earned such a positive reputation in the community. It also accounts for why its work generates so many referrals from satisfied customers.

When a technician from Einstein’s Home Services arrives at the customer’s home, he or she quickly assesses the situation. The technician notes what parts are damaged and will be in need of repair or replacement.

The team carries a full complement of tools and basic parts for water heater repair in company vehicles, so there are no delays to leave the job site to pick up something from a warehouse. Einstein’s Home Services values customers’ time and works efficiently to make the most out of each service call.

Energy Efficient Water Heater Systems

Another benefit to customers is Einstein’s Home Services’ extensive knowledge about all things having to do with energy efficiency in plumbing and HVAC systems.

They know about industry and government programs for rebates and discounts, which encourage business owners and homeowners alike to invest in the latest and most efficient water heaters.

If a water heater is very old and no longer keeping up with demand, the best course for the customer might be to purchase a brand new water heater that’s energy-efficient. It will use less energy, cutting down on utility bills.

Money saved by the efficiency can make up for the cost of purchasing the newer unit. The team at Einstein’s Home Services will be happy to explain to homeowners their options for more affordable water heating, and how much money they can save by installing a new system.

It’s Prudent to Have Experts Check Out a Water Heater at the First Sign of a Problem

Homeowners who are experiencing a problematic water heater should not delay any further in bringing in professionals for an examination. Putting off an appointment could mean that the water heater breaks down completely, requiring outright replacement instead of a much less expensive repair.

It’s more practical to repair a water heater when the problem is small, instead of dealing with a catastrophic flood that ruins valuable items in the home.

With that in mind, customers are invited to connect with Einstein’s Home Services through their website as well as by following them on Twitter and Facebook.

Jochas Moving and Delivery Offers New Furniture Delivery and Assembly for the Orlando, Broward, Tampa, and Miami Areas

The Benefits of Furniture Delivery  

Many manufacturers and stores offer their own delivery services, but they are seldom guaranteed. And nothing is more disappointing than brand new furniture arriving scratched, damaged, or unexpectedly unassembled. And if the furniture is coming in a box, often “delivery” means leaving it on the front porch to be moved in by the owner.

If a customer lives in an apartment building, he or she can be lucky to have it delivered at all, let alone carried up the stairs to their door.

When working with a professional furniture delivery service, expect:

  • Delivery completed by experienced, licensed, insured movers
  • Furniture unpacked/uncrated, inspected, and placed in home or office
  • Delivery arriving on time and damage-free
  • Furniture unpacked and assembled on-site

 

A good furniture delivery company will also offer pickup and delivery directly from the warehouse or showroom to save money!

Furniture is expensive. Protect investment by handling it with care. Jochas Moving and Delivery insures all furniture deliveries for 60 cents per pound–that’s double the industry standard! And if the furniture is damaged during moving or delivery, they will restore it to its original condition. Visit their Facebook and Instagram page to learn about their services.

If one chooses to use professional delivery services, there are a few things to do to ensure that furniture delivery goes as smoothly as possible.

Furniture Delivery Checklist  

Prepare Space Ahead of Time  

Before the day of the furniture delivery, clear out space where the new furniture will reside. Remember that, if necessary, the customer should clear a space big enough for easy assembly. Clear a path for easy maneuvering and carrying.

Make sure any stairs that movers will have to use are completely clear, remove dog and baby gates in their path, and remove any wall hangings that could be knocked off by large or unwieldy packaging.

Measure Twice, Unpack Once  

A customer may have measured space multiple times before ordering that sectional sofa or baby grand piano. But before the delivery, it is important to also measure the width of doors and hallways. This will help find the best possible route for the movers to deliver the new furniture.

Professional movers will always assess and measure the space for any tight squeezes before unloading, but it saves a lot of time to do it beforehand. If concerned about an especially delicate piece, the customer should talk to the movers about extra wrapping, padding, or protection prior to unloading.

Be On-Site and Available During the Furniture Delivery  

People are busy, but for furniture delivery to go as smoothly as possible, it is vital that the customer be available to advise and answer questions during the delivery and assembly process. There must be someone on-site to allow movers into the building and to receive the delivery.

The customer doesn’t have to be in the room every moment of the assembly, but try to stay nearby in case there are any issues or questions. Movers prefer that someone inspects and signs off on the assembled furniture before leaving the premises to ensure 100% service satisfaction!

What Type of Furniture Does Jochas Moving and Delivery Services Deliver?  

They deliver all types of home, office, and specialty furniture, including:

  • Desks and cubicles
  • Large sofas and sectionals
  • Armchairs and loveseats
  • Large TVs and electronics
  • Unusually shaped or bulky art, sculptures, mirrors, or water features
  • Pianos, harps, and other large instruments

  • Refrigerators
  • Washers and Dryers
  • Ovens
  • Ranges and Hoods
  • Commercial appliances (printers, scanners, etc.)
  • Large rugs
  • Mantels
  • Entertainment centers and shelving units

This is not a comprehensive list of their furniture delivery capabilities. If concerned about having a specialty, bulky, or fragile item delivered, contact Jochas Moving and Delivery for a free estimate. They’re happy to work with customers and create a custom delivery plan!

Jochas Moving & Delivery Launches Professional Services for a Stress-free Move

Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to cut corners and save a little money while moving, even if hiring a professional moving company. The most important thing to remember about moving services is that they’re usually paid by the hour. So prepare ahead of time with these tips to streamline a move as much as possible and save big!

1. Professional Moving Services Should be Licensed and Insured  

This is an indirect way to save money, but it is so important. Before paying for professional movers, make sure that they are licensed and insured. Moving services are regulated by the state and are required to be registered with the DMV of DOT.

If a property is damaged during a move and movers aren’t properly licensed and insured, there may have no way to recoup that loss. Ask moving companies for copies of their licenses and registration, or look them up with the state’s local mover database through the DOT or DMV.

With Jochas Moving & Delivery Services, you will not experience time-consuming and stressful move.

2. Prepare Ahead of Time  

Packing–as anyone who has moved before knows–takes a lot more time and effort than first assumed. Maybe this is why there are a shocking number of people still frantically packing last-minute boxes on moving day. This slows down movers and can end up costing money in the long run.

If movers are paid by the hour (as almost all are), make sure that everything completely packed and ready to go on the day of the move. This includes closing and taping every box shut securely. Taping everything securely will allow movers to stack boxes on the moving dolly, which is much faster than carrying each open box individually. It also makes packing up the truck easier and more efficient.

While packing services can be an excellent option for those who are crunched for time or physically unable, they do add an extra line item to the final bill.

3. Organize Boxes by Size  

This is a very easy way to shave time off a move and save money on hourly moving services. Stack boxes by size (small, medium, large, etc.) in their own piles.

This is something that most movers do themselves to ensure that they fit everything safely onto the dolly and into the truck. Completing this step can save as much as 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the home!

4. Don’t Move During Peak Hours  

This is an unpopular tip, but it could save several hundred dollars. If it’s at all possible, move during the middle of the week in winter. Summer is, by far, the most popular time of year to move, so it’s more expensive.

The same goes for weekends. A lot of people can’t take the time off work, but it’s usually significantly cheaper to move in the middle of the day on a Wednesday than on a Saturday.

The least popular the time to move, the better the deal will be. So even with time restrictions, try to move as close to the middle of the week as possible to save the maximum amount of money on moving charges.

If moving during peak moving times, booking way ahead of time may be able to save money. As soon as moving dates are identified, call around and start pricing moving services before demand drives prices up.

Disassemble and Disconnect  

There are several relatively small tasks that can be completed before movers arrive to save them time–and money!

First, disassemble the beds and bed frames before the movers arrive. This is a relatively quick task, but the more bedrooms there are, the more this step adds to hourly rate! Good moving services offer this as a part of their services, but if on a budget, every minute counts.

The same goes for washer, dryer, and major appliances. Make sure that anything is fully cleaned out, disconnected, and unplugged on the day of move. One thing that’s often overlooked is the fridge–be sure to clean it out completely before the movers get there! The last thing one wants is spoiled food in the fridge or food splattered all over other belongings.

For reliable, affordable moving services in Orlando, Broward, Tampa, or Miami, Florida, contact Jochas Moving & Delivery for a free estimate. Visit their Facebook and Instagram page to learn how they can assist.

From Fratire King to Self-Publishing Empire:The POZcast with Adam Posner Shines a Light on Tucker Max

As the podcast industry continues to grow, The POZcast with Adam Posner is at the top of the list. Posner regularly has experts in various areas on his show to discuss serious topics. Now, there is a new episode of The POZcast with Adam Posner, where he talks with Tucker Max. Max shines a light on exactly how he got to where he is today. During the in-depth interview, Posner discusses how Max became a 4x best-selling New York Times author while still balancing his professional obligations.

Tucker Max: Scribe Media Founder  

When people think about Tucker Max, they usually envision the founder of Scribe Media; however, prior to this, he went to school to become a lawyer. After finishing school, he realized that he did not particularly enjoy practicing law. He believes the field forces you to sell your soul if you want to enjoy success, which he was not willing to do.

Even though lots of people are worried about what will happen if they do not put their advanced degree to use, Max knew that he did not want to spend his life doing something he hated. Therefore, he tried to get out before he got in too deep. He moved to Hollywood for two years, which he also hated, as he felt like he was spending time around people who were nothing like him. Eventually, he decided that his calling was to found Scribe Media, which was the first stepping stone to get him where he is today.

His next step was to start a blog on his own website, which is tuckermax.com, where he founded a new genre that is now called “fratire.” Originally used by Warren St. John, a writer for the New York Times, this is the best way to describe Tucker’s style of writing.

On his website, Max pokes fun at himself a lot, mocking the life he once led in his 20s. In addition, his website has become popular because of his unique sense of humor. Finally, Max always discusses that he has been both blessed and cursed to tell the truth to people no matter what.

A Unique Approach: Tucker Max and Scribe Media  

The original reason why Tucker Max went to law school was to become someone who could help people. He realized that this was going to be a lot harder than he thought. Fortunately, he now gets to do exactly that as he works for Scribe Media. A lot of his clients are shocked because he asks them to read their books out loud. While this might seem like an unconventional approach, it is actually very important. When someone is actually forced to speak out loud, they can pick up on errors in their writing that they might have otherwise overlooked. It is this type of dedication to his clients that has made Tucker Max the success that he is today. It has also driven Scribe Media to the top of the industry. Tucker Max has written 4 New York Times best-selling books, including ‘I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell’.

The Drive To Change: Discussing the Core Principle of Buddha  

Tucker Max has always worked to free himself from the chains of a “typical” career and, after four decades, he has finally done that, as he has founded Scribe Media. He follows Buddha’s Core Principle, which states that you must do your work first before you can help others do theirs.

In following this principle, Tucker Max has become the person he is today. He knows that real change can be hard; however, he knows that people need to change themselves if they would like to change the world. Now, Tucker Max spends his time pursuing his true calling. This has led him to become a best-selling New York Times author four separate. All of this, and more, is discussed on The POZcast with Adam Posner, one of the newest episodes released.

The POZcast with Adam Posner Shines a Light on Tucker Max: From Fratire King to Self-Publishing Empire

The POZcast with Adam Posner has quickly become one of the most popular podcasts in the industry. Featuring top guests and serious topics, there is a new episode of The POZcast with Adam Posner that was recently released, featuring Tucker Max. Tucker Max took a unique journey to get where he is today. The POZcast with Adam Posner goes in-depth with Tucker Max to discuss how he ended up as a New York Times Best Selling Author (four times over) with a balanced life.

Tucker Max is the Founder of Scribe Media

Most people know Tucker Max as the founder of Scribe Media. Even though Tucker Max is a lawyer by training, he quickly realized that this was not for him. He hated just about everything about being a lawyer and describes the field as having to “sell your soul” just to be successful in any way. While many people are concerned about not using an advanced degree once they have it, Tucker realized that he needed to get out of the industry before it was too late. He spent two years in Hollywood, which he describes as the worst two years of his life. He realized that many people who live in Hollywood and work in his industry, are sociopathic, soulless, and narcissistic. Because Tucker Max did not want to end up like them, he decided to get out. That caused an abrupt career change, leading him to Scribe Media.

His career took off when he started a blog on his website, tuckermax.com, where he created a new genre now known as “fratire.” This word was used by a writer for the New York Times, Warren St. John, to describe the exact nature of Tucker’s writing.

On his website, Tucker mostly shares unique stories from the life he led during his twenties. His writing has become popular because many people like how Tucker makes fun of his younger self, and the partying he did. Tucker has also been blessed (or cursed) with a personality that always leads him to tell the truth, no matter what. This type of “fratire” is discussed in-depth during the podcast.

Tucker Max Takes a Unique Approach at Scribe Media

Tucker Max originally got into the legal field to help other people. Even though he did not get to do exactly what he wanted to as a lawyer, he does get to spend his life helping people at Scribe Media. Many of his clients are surprised because he makes them read their book out loud before he agrees to publish them. This comes from Tucker’s own personal experience. Some people do not realize exactly what they should change about their writing until they are forced to read it out loud. Even though many of Tucker’s clients have edited their work on paper many times, it always sounds different once it is read out loud. Tucker believes he can better help his clients this way. Tucker Max has written 4 New York Times best-selling books, including ‘I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell’.

Buddha’s Core Principle and the Drive To Change

Even though it has taken him more than four decades, Tucker Max lives his life, and runs Scribe Media, by following Buddha’s Core Principle. First, you must do your work. Then, you can help others do theirs. This principle guides all of Tucker’s decision-making and has made him a better person.

It has also helped him change, becoming the person he is today. If you want to see real change, then you must change yourself. Tucker went through a lot of this when he decided to leave his legal training and experience behind; however, he has found another fulfilling career that has made him a New York Times bestselling author 4 times. Tucker Max, and his unique journey through life, are discussed in-depth on The POZcast with Adam Posner.

About The POZcast with Adam Posner

Hot Real Estate Market and Pandemic Mark Increased Need for Skilled Realtors

Oak Brook Terrace, IL – The real estate market has steadily been heating up in many jurisdictions across the United States, and low interest rates are the culprit. 

Low interest rates equate to low monthly mortgage payments and that also means more buyers are ready to put their bids in. For sellers, that means more money on the table. For buyers, that means you might get outbid by a number of other hungry buyers.

Home buyers and sellers trying to navigate this intense market on their own are being met with many challenges, demonstrating the need for an experienced realtor.

For clients looking for exceptional service with the Illinois rental units and Illinois luxury home markets, they should trust RE/MAX LEGENDS realtor Jennifer Mansoori at Lavish Group Inc.

“VIP clients are always number one, and my goal is to exceed each and every expectation, with one monumental experience at a time,” says Jennifer Mansoori.

Mansoori has more than 20 years of experience in sales and marketing. Her strong foundation in business has equipped her with the tools needed to help buyers, sellers and investor clients.

“Sellers are getting top dollar and mortgage rates are at an all-time low,” says Mansoori, adding, “we are seeing buyer clients getting a little frustrated because so many people are bidding on the same house,” says Mansorri, “I can help you craft a competitive offer while not sacrificing your major wants in a home.” 

Selling your home amid a pandemic also brings unique challenges. Some folks are more uncomfortable with showings with increased health risks. An experienced realtor can help communicate and enforce the seller’s preferences with home showings to potential buyers. Realtors can also help by coordinating a limited numbers of showings during a specified window of time. Other elements of marketing a seller’s home, like doing virtual showings, can also help showcase the home without buyers having to attend an in-person viewing.

According to Mansoori, “Some of my clients say they only want one day of showings and I can help facilitate a schedule to enable safe showings throughout that one day. My clients’ expectations are always met or exceeded.”

Many buyers are in the same boat with their comfort levels during the pandemic. Different buyers have different levels of comfort with health and safety and its up to the realtor to help them feel more comfortable while viewing various places.

The VIP service provided by Lavish Group Inc ensures all clients expectations are exceeded. Mansoori is the expert clients can trust while helping to navigate the Illinois rental unit market and the Illinois luxury home market.
