The Vancouver Sun Children’s Fund Adopt-a-School Project

Hello Leapers! Join the LeapZone team in supporting this very important cause…

If you were part of a community — perhaps a business, perhaps raising a family, perhaps both — and you discovered that children in your local schools were going to school every day without breakfast, or warm clothing in the winter, would you want to help? Of course you would.

Well, for many children in Metro Vancouver inner-city schools, the unthinkable is reality, and The Vancouver Sun wants to change that.

The Vancouver Sun Children’s Fund, the Sun’s charity, recently launched an Adopt-a-School project and in a series of daily stories now through Christmas it is telling the compelling, often humbling stories of these schools, and of the children who need help.

The project had its start with a story by The Sun’s education writer Janet Steffenhagen who wrote about a heart-felt plea from a teacher at an inner-city school in Vancouver.

“From where I sit every day, things are not okay,” Carrie Gelson wrote in a letter she addressed simply to the people of Vancouver.

“I can teach these children. Love them. Advocate for them. Stock my room with great books. Give away parts of my lunch.

“I can build community partnerships. I can build relationships with families. I can watch others around me doing the same thing. But until I know you are helping, too, it will remain not good enough.”

The story struck a chord in the community and offers of help poured in. The Sun realized that people want to help those in need in the their own communities and so the idea of Adopt-a-School was born.

“The story produced an outpouring of support from you, our readers. So we hope to harness your generosity and help kids in other inner-city schools,” Kevin Bent, president and publisher of the Pacific Newspaper Group and chairman of The Vancouver Sun Children’s Fund said in a letter to readers. “Every dollar raised from you will be matched by the Children’s Fund.

“As you begin preparations to celebrate the holiday season that is upon us, we hope you will find a way to help us bring a little warmth and joy to these children and set them on the road to a fulfilling and productive life.”

The Sun kicked off Adopt-a-School on November 12 and stories are running daily in the paper and online chronicling the needs of kids and of the businesses and individuals that are stepping forward to help them.

The money being raised goes a long way. All administration costs for The Children’s Fund are absorbed by the newspaper so every dollar donated goes to help kids.

And this year, The Children’s Fund is matching dollar-for-dollar every donation made to the Adopt-a-School program. So for every dollar you donate, double that goes to help kids in need.

We encourage you to take action, because a little goes a long way. We can all make a difference!

LeapZone Hits Amazon.com Best Seller List With “The Next Big Thing”

Orlando, Fla. – March 18, 2011 – Isabelle Mercier Turcotte and Margarita Romano, founders of LeapZone Strategies, Inc., recently joined a select group of America’s leading entrepreneurs and businesspeople to collaborate and co-write the business and marketing book titled, The Next Big Thing: Top Trends From Today’s Leading Experts to Help You Dominate the New Economy. The book was published by CelebrityPress™, a leading business and marketing book publisher founded by Nick Nanton, Esq. and business partner, JW Dicks, Esq.

As a brand builder and business performance catalyst, Isabelle’s sole purpose is to empower change and growth. “Momentum Generator” is her middle name and she has a relentless passion for helping entrepreneurs and small business owners raise the bar and expand their comfort zone to create outstanding brand experiences. Isabelle’s biggest strength is her no BS approach and ability to tell it like it is. She has the “Simon Cowell” edge and is not afraid to tell people what to do and how to do it. She is consistently leading-edge in facilitating change, and her undeniable track record and authentic connection with people, has gained her worldwide influence and recognition.

Margarita Romano is a visionary strategist, processor, business owner, systems engineer, creative writer and fanatical problem-solver. She loves to step in on a strategic level to provide a different perspective, and to help uncover and clarify purpose and direction. Defining a business’ brand is her business, and making complicated things simple, is her passion.

The new book, The Next Big Thing: Top Trends From Today’s Leading Experts to Help You Dominate the New Economy was released on Thursday, March 10, 2011.  It features forward thinking trends to help entrepreneurs and business people dominate the new economy.  Isabelle and Margarita contributed a chapter titled “Twelve Smart, Unconventional Performance Principles To Get You Into Your Leapzone.”

On the day of release, The Next Big Thing reached best-seller status on Amazon.com, reaching #4 in both the Entrepreneurship and Communications categories.

From CelebrityPress:

The old adage states: “Driving forward while focusing on the rearview mirror will land you in an accident.” This also holds true in business. While it’s important to understand the past, the future is where the real opportunity lies. But how do you tell the difference between passing fads and profitable trends? The authors in this book aim to do exactly that. Forty-one leading experts across multiple industries have teamed up to share The Next Big Thing to help you profit in this new economy.

After such a successful release, Isabelle Mercier Turcotte and Margarita Romano will be inducted into The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best seller lists.

What You Can Do Today To Maximize Your Potential

You probably realize you could be more productive and effective in your business. So, what can you do today to maximize your potential?

How do you bring out the best in yourself day after day when you manage yourself and there is no one else to hold you to a higher standard of performance?

How do you stay focused and make the best use of your time when you work in an unstructured environment and there are so many compelling distractions?

And how do you overcome procrastination and take action on the things you have been putting off, activities you know have a high payoff, but you just never get around to?

The answer is simple.

It’s called The Spark. LeapZone’s MasterMind-Style Group Coaching program designed specifically to help solopreneurs and small business owners kick some serious business butt!

After working with hundreds of small business owners, self-employed professionals, commissioned sales people and some of the greatest local and global brands in the past 16 years, I can tell you two things with absolute certainty:

One: “Self-management challenges” really are undermining your productivity. They are costing you a lot of money but they are also perfectly normal. It does more harm than good to beat yourself up for lacking focus and discipline. You are probably much closer to success than you think. If you are like most entrepreneurs, the changes you need to make are relatively minor and the impact of making them will be significant.

Two: There is a simple, easy way to stay focused and maximize your efficiency to achieve more results faster, with the same amount of, or even less, effort. I can say that with confidence because I see the amazing and tangible results that our clients have experienced through the “Tried, Tested and True” LeapZone Process.

If you are interested in breaking out of the rut you are in and massively increasing your productivity and positive results while generating additional income quickly, you owe it to yourself to join The Spark.

I am ready to take action today!

I am interested…but have a few questions!

Why our clients LOVE The Spark!

“I LOVE the accountability factor. I know that each mastermind session, we need to bring a win and a stuck point to the group which pushes me each time to obtain a win and to celebrate it with the group and I love that!”

“Realizing our own potential. Hands down, the biggest benefit from The Spark. I hang up the phone more JAZZED about my business abilities and the tools that I am learning to become a well oiled machine every time. It helps me see our business as a huge, bottomless, untapped goldmine to fuel the life we want to live!”

“I love to know that others are experiencing the same issues…and even better…I love to learn about solutions that I would never have thought of if it were not for the amazing people in my Spark group!”

Looking forward to having you in one of our amazing groups!
