“To accomplish great things we must first dream, then visualize, then plan… believe… act”!
– Alfred A. Montapert
As a life coach and guru to enterpreneurs, Lee Brower uses his model “The Brower Quadrant” to help entrepreneurs visualize and plan a bigger future. This model defines “True Wealth” in terms of four quadrants or categories: core, experience, contribution, and financial. In this video, Lee describes how he simplifies these ideas for younger audiences. He explains that “core” is how we live (i.e., how we express our values); “experience” is how we learn; “contribution” is how we give or share; and “financial” is how we earn and add value. He then challenges us to visualize achievements in these four areas over the next 90 days. With some subtle variations, this technique has become a staple of Lee Brower’s life coaching practice.
“There’s the pain of doing the right thing and there’s the pain of regret”
In this video, Lee Brower describes how he unintentionally acted as a life coach and guru to a woman who had both suffered greatly because of her attitude and experienced a miraculous gift for herself and her family. Her story “The Watch” demonstrates the power of naming and the value of stories in building and sustaining family culture. It’s the values reflected in the stories and traditions that shape the inter-generational culture of a family. More than estate plans, investment programs, tax schemes , legal documents, or any other strategy or technique, a rich, high-minded family culture is the essence of Empowered Wealth’s approach to sustainable True Wealth.
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.
