Don’t Settle, Dream BIG!

by Terri Hawkins

What are your goals for 2015? Are you dreaming BIG? If not, Lynne Gladstone with Vísi would love to share the vision of her team. On Wednesday, December 10, Lynn and her visitor, Priscilla Harrison, spoke about leveraging opportunity, which they summed up in the words of their new Vísi Anthem:


Everyone wakes up to begin their day, yet how many embrace the opportunity to conquer it?


Potential holds vast amounts of upside for every individual.


A healthy mind and body achieves more.


Daily improvements will win this race.


Growth requires work, yet fun must reign supreme.


These simple truths comprise our core. Join with us as we impact the world.



Additionally, Lynne and Priscilla extended an invitation to our PBL group and any interested friends to listen to an audio recording of a locally-recorded conference call from the previous day, 12/9/14 with Dr. Charlie Rouse. In it, he shares his unique knowledge and understanding of the human body and how Vísi products work in our body. Listen to learn especially how Vísi seeks to help people feel, look, and function better throughout and after the holidays.

Where to Begin Lasting Lifestyle Changes

by Terri Hawkins

How do you stay motivated to meet your fitness goals? Do you have reasonable goals? How about just getting started? No matter what shape you are in, having the personal support of fitness professionals can make all the difference.

ABSolute Fitness, NC, a locally owned and operated gym, is helping people of all ages and stages of fitness to meet their fitness potential, according to trainer James Parker-Ashley. He loves to share success stories of the changes they make in many lives:

  • Those healing from surgical procedures
  • Athletes training for teams
  • People with weight loss goals
  • Kids
  • Clients older than “four score and seven years”
  • New moms
  • Those striving to squeeze in fitness to improve quality of life

Seeing is believing…but doing is even better. Sneak a peek at their website or Facebook page, then drop in to meet the team in Greensboro (1570-B Highwoods Boulevard is conveniently located off New Garden Road and Bryan Boulevard–behind The Fresh Market).

Or, if you know of a company seeking to help their employees find time to stay in shape, introduce James to their HR manager, to help them make healthy lifestyle changes a reality–whether customized for their on-site needs or at the gym.

To a healthier and fitter 2015, with James and the ABSolute Fitness team!

Is the Foundation of Your Financial Home Solid?

by Terri Hawkins


If you had a medical situation keeping you from work, how long could you pay your bills or stay on track for your long-term goals? Medical insurance helps pay the medical bills, but how would you deal with lost income and all of your other bills?

Savings, investments, and even your estate plans are important “floors” and “roofs” for your financial home—but these can easily tumble if you haven’t considered how to protect your income in the event of an accident or illness.

Disability Insurance is a foundational component of solid financial planning, according to Diana Tate, District Sales Coordinator with Aflac. Aflac knows people have bills to pay. So in the event of a medical incident, claims are typically paid within 3-4 days, keeping policyholders on track financially.

One of the biggest wins for people with Aflac protection is that money is paid directly to the policyholders. In other words, Aflac doesn’t coordinate benefits from any other provider. Read: every policyholder gets all the money they are entitled to per their Aflac policy–and it doesn’t matter what medical policy does or doesn’t pay.

Aflac is also a budget friendly option—both for employers and the policyholders. Businesses don’t pay for their employees’ supplemental insurance, but they do help individuals achieve lower rates as part of their company’s group. Also, Aflac clients don’t have to worry about changing costs, as the rates never increase.

Introduce your friends and business owners to Diana for Aflac‘s affordable protection.


Did you know 60% of Americans don’t have a financial plan to handle the unexpected? Aflac provides a solid foundation for your financial home, freeing you to spend your energies on important physical and emotional needs in the event of unexpected, challenging times.

Relationships Key to Fitness Success

by Terri Hawkins

Are you “gutting out” your routines on your own? Worse yet, have you given up trying to stay in shape or reaching your fitness goals? An ABSolute Fitness change may be just what you need!

James Parker-Ashley spoke at our PBL group last week on the value of relationships that he and owner Ron Kennedy see at play in helping their clients achieve their fitness goals. At ABSolute Fitness, he and Ron consider each new client’s body and mindset, and then develop a workout program to suit his or her needs. From there, the accountability and commitment is a two-way street. As both sides communicate, they tweak each client’s program until they figure out what works.

While ABSolute Fitness is results-driven, they know results vary person to person. Besides stronger bodies, their clients say working with them helps change their mindsets, and even improve coping and focus skills. James has clients-who-become-friends ranging from children to grandparents (and some in the same family). The results family members see speak for themselves and draw others in. So do their words, such as from one loyal client, “James, I will go to you until I die.”

Now, a little disclaimer here: working out is not just a bed of roses:). James does admit some of his loyal clients may fuss all through their workouts, but as he says, “they smile when they leave, and keep coming back.”

Some great referrals for ABSolute Fitness would be
1) Family or friends looking for a facility where they can work out,
2) Someone who would like training to meet their goals (from basic, weight loss, dealing with aches…to preparing for a Panthers’ tryout)
3) HR/Corporate decision makers looking to implement or improve Corporate training onsite or offer group training, and, of course,
4) YOU!

After a simple phone call to discuss your goals, James or Ron will give you a one-hour consultation to talk and do an assessment to get you started. What are you waiting for?

What motivates you to work out? Are you meeting your goals?

How Will You Pay Your Bills If You Can’t Work?

That’s a tough question. Fortunately, Diana Tate with Aflac has the answer.

Aflac is supplemental insurance coverage that is completely separate from your health coverage. So what does that mean? Aflac will pay you directly regardless of your insurance coverage.

Did you chip your tooth? That’s an accident–and it’s covered under Aflac’s accident coverage. Need to travel to a different city for medical care? Aflac will pay you for the treatment and help with your transportation and lodging! And what’s better…if you get sick or hurt, they’ll send you a check within 3-4 days!

Thinking it will never happen to you is no back-up plan. There are very few guarantees in life. This is one of them. Isn’t time you get in on it?

Individuals can open their own policy, and it’s free for employers to offer Aflac coverage to their employees. Plus there are possible tax incentives, and you only need 3 people to sign up.

Here’s what Aflac has to offer:

  • Personal Sickness Indemnity
  • Dental Insurance
  • Accident Indemnity
  • Cancer Indemnity
  • Short-Term Disability
  • Critical Care and Recovery
  • Hospital Protection

Contact Diana Tate today to get your back-up plan in place! Aflac’s got you under their wing.
