    Robbie Vorhaus- One Less, One More: follow your heart. be happy. change slowly.

    in Motivation

    One Less, One More: follow your heart. be happy. change slowly. by Robbie Vorhaus


    This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Robbie Vorhaus. The original live interview was 4/17/15.


    A marriage in trouble, jeopardized health, and financial pressures culminated on vacation when his family asked: “Dad, are you really happy?” Realizing he was in peril of losing everything he held dear, Robbie courageously followed the advice he had given clients for decades: Follow your heart. Choose to be happy. And consciously make everything better than you found it. The result: Vorhaus closed his agency, moved his family to their small Sag Harbor home, started a leadership and crisis consultancy, and began anew.


    Now transformed, healthy, happy, and celebrating a marriage of more than 25 years, Robbie drew on his life’s work and experience to write a column for his local newspaper, The Sag Harbor Express, outlining a step-by-step plan for following your heart and being happy, which, after going viral, became the basis for his next seven years writing, One Less. One More. – Follow Your Heart. Be Happy. Change Slowly.


    Robbie is a frequent media contributor on crisis and reputation management, public opinion and current events, featured often on CNN, CNBC, ABC News, Fox News, and USA Today.

    CEO in 10 with Chris Faulkner of Breitling Energy

    in Lifestyle

    CEO in 10 features Chris Faulkner of Breitling Energy. He discusses: 


     


    Vacation time!  Driving, flying or staying home? Your vacation plans may be determined by the price at the pump. How much are those fill-ups going to be?


     


    We all know that gas at the pump comes from a barrel of oil, but who sets those prices? Historically, as the main producer, it has been OPEC. But now,  thanks to the shale revolution.  Could the creation of a joint U.S., Mexico and Canada oil production effort make North America completely energy independent?  And could it decrease the power of OPEC to determine the price of a barrel of oil, resulting in lower energy prices, which could be a determining factor in people’s travel plans?




    Will this group help bring down or stabilize oil prices?






    How will this benefit the U.S. consumer?



    Will this joint effort control prices like OPEC does now?



    Are Canada and Mexico interested in joining?



    What are you doing to start this confederation?



    How soon, if at all, will this be a reality?




     


    About Chris Faulkner:


    As CEO of Breitling Energy Companies, Chris Faulkner is an expert in North America, Europe, Middle East and Asian oil and gas operations. He has appeared on many media outlets including Reuters, Fox, Bloomberg, CNN, CNBC and The Weather Channel. Faulkner has also been invited to speak at industry conferences worldwide. ”Breaking Free: the Shale Rock Revolution”,  a movie produced by Faulkner just released this March, explores the rise of America's energy independence and why we have low prices at the pump.
