Darcie Englert of American Home Team Realty educates us about property management.

Posted by Professional Connections Group on Tuesday, October 17, 2017

This week Darcie Englert with American Home Team Realty spoke to us about ownership when you’re a Property Manager and all of the things you must be aware of as an owner and manager.

Darcie explains how investors, a lot of the time, will think that the cheapest option is the best option. It’s not. When you buy cheap, everything is cheap. There will be issues that you will discover. A patchwork job is not the answer. As a Property Manager, it is best to be honest with your owners. Darcie gave examples of how the owner should be informed and what they should be concerned about when it comes to owning a property.

As a manager, it is your responsibility to let owners know of any potential hazards in the home. This can mean anything from attic access to pools. Take precaution on how to avoid liability and be smart.

At the end of her presentation, Darcie reads a poem about the day in the life of a Property Manager’s world. It gives a good insight on what a day is like for her and other property managers in a fun light.

Are you a property manager who’s having trouble where you are? Or are you in the wrong place? Darcie would love to talk and potentially bring you on to the team. Visit their website today!

Meet our newest member of Professional Connections Group, Dominic Lucibello with Breakthrough Fitness!

Dominic has been in Oviedo since 2008, with a degree from Florida Atlantic University he jumped into the personal training industry and found he could not stand it, from there he opened his own business in 2010. Breakthrough Fitness has been teaching and training the “Top Fitness Trends of 2016” since they opened and he plans to share that with the world.

Dominic shared the foundation of his business with us and that being the “Four Pillars of Fitness” – support, consistency, effort, and the enjoyment of the process. Fitness should be a lifelong endeavor.

Pillar 1 – Support: Dominic expressed that in order to be serious about getting your results and seeing those changes happen, you need support. This has helped shape his vision for his facility. He explains why adults need support, life can get busy, and at Breakthrough you can find that support through coaches and fellow members. Everyone trains together at Breakthrough Fitness and the fitness enthusiasts usually find themselves leaving the facility because Dominic and his team mainly focus on those who are new to the fitness world and find ways to support them.

Pillar 2 РConsistency: If you want to look better? Eat right. Feel better? Positivity. Feel good physically? Movement. Move better? Repetition. Dominic and believes that you can achieve consistency through coaching, whether that be personal or group. He also keeps his consistency by providing education through weekly blogs and social media posts, keeping everyone in the conversation.

Pillar 3 – Effort: “Results aren’t guaranteed, they’re earned”. At Breakthrough Fitness there is no sugar coating anything. When you have a good facility the effort comes easier, too.

Pillar 4 – Enjoyment of the Process: The process is the payoff. There will be lows and highs but that what the process is about!

The four pillars are interdependent, when you put the four of these together you will last longer in the fitness game.

If you’re looking to start your fitness journey at a facility that focuses on these pillars, visit Breakthrough Fitness’ website today!

Need to know what to do after an accident? Jim Gordon from Beers & Gordon, P.A. Civil Trial Attorneys gives us the education.

Posted by Professional Connections Group on Tuesday, October 3, 2017

This week Jim Gordon with Beers & Gordon, P.A. Civil Trial Attorneys spoke with us about What to do After an Accident”. Although their firm does not do many slip and fall cases, he gives a bit of advice on what to do when that happens. If you are to slip and fall in a store or restaurant, you need to take pictures. If you are injured you will need to have the evidence behind your slip and fall. You should also obtain an incident report from the store or restaurant the incident occurred.

Like a slip and fall accident you want to gather the same amount of evidence, if not more, in an auto accident. Before anything else, get the witnesses information; officers often forget to write down the witness information which can be extremely important in a case. Next, take pictures at the accident scene, take as many as you can. For example, some vehicles get taken away and you will want those pictures of all vehicles and even skid marks on the road. Jim also mentions the importance of the damage underneath the car. Jim has employees who will go out to the accident scene and 3D scan the car and then determine what happened in the accident electronically.

You want to preserve as much evidence as you can, and the worse the accident the sooner you will want an attorney on scene. Jim gives us great examples of past cases and the importance behind them and how you can benefit from what he has learned and worked through. He emphasizes again to document everything.
