Empowered Wealth will be hosting its first annual "Empowered Wealth Ambassadors and Faciliators Summit" July 14th and July 15th at the Sheraton O'Hare, Chicago, IL. This event will showcase the talents, skills, and the great work of many of our Ambassadors and Facilitators. They will share how they’re incorporating Empowered Wealth's principles, concepts, and tools into wealth management practices, family offices, Mastermind groups, and business consulting.
Lee Brower (http://leebrower.com), the founder of Empowered Wealth, Life Coach and unofficial "guru" to many family owned businesses will be delivering a keynote address on Thursday, July 14th entitled "Leadership, Character, and the Business Family Approach". Lee will also be on a panel Friday, July 15th discussing "Empowered Wealth and the Family Office". He'll also join his wife Lori Brower for a short presentation on "Contribution" and how their non-profit WACKY (https://wackywarriors.org/) is raising money to help young adults battling cancer.
Lee Brower often serves as a “guru” to successful entrepreneurs. However, in this video, the roles are reversed as Lee tells a story about Joe Martinez, a hospitality entrepreneur who “walks his talk” by giving and contributing to the well-being of others and by so doing, demonstrates how to strengthen families from the “inside out”.
“There is no challenge that can be too big for the human spirit”
– Joe Martinez
“Civilizations are not destroyed from the outside in, they’re destroyed from the inside out”
– Joe Martinez
Whether it was by continuing to pay his employees in the wake of Hurricane Wilma or building schools so that parents could have a place for their children to be cared for while they work, Joe Martinez put his money and more importantly his heart into strengthening families. As Lee Brower notes in this video, Joe Martinez is doing his part to strengthen families and hold civilization together… from the inside out.
Lee Brower is a life coach and unofficial guru to kids coming out of the projects. In this video, he tells a story about a troubled young man who rediscovered his self-esteem and another young man who stepped up to leadership when the opportunity presented itself.
“We can elevate as leaders when we stop putting junk on our self-esteem and find ways to help others take the junk off of their self-esteem.”
For the past few years, Lee Brower has been an unofficial life coach and guru to many young girls, coaches, and parents involved with girls softball. Lee and his wife Lori are the driving forces behind the annual WACKY Softball Tournament, an event that raises awareness and money for kids and young adults fighting cancer.
Like many other youth sports, softball games can ignite coaches’ and parents’ emotions when “bad calls” or unjust, unfair events occur. In this video, Lee talks about the consequences when adults react poorly in these situations
“Example is not the main thing in influencing others, it is the only thing.”
— Albert Schweitzer
As leaders of families, businesses, and communities, we can underestimate the long-term impact our influence has on others, especially our children. This story serves as a reminder that, as Lee says, “You are teachers and you are learners every single moment.”
