HeartMatters

Your HeartMatters Journey

On my morning walk in the fresh-fallen snow yesterday, I was inspired with the idea to initiate an open online program to support your journey to achieve and maintain optimal health and well-being. Admittedly, the inspiration was spontaneous–I shot a quick video about my idea–and have spent a lot of time since then thinking about what I have put out into the universe!

This morning, I’ve written a detailed outline that captures my vision for this online program/series. My enthusiasm for the possibilities is quite robust! I am savoring this container I have opened in my mind and heart that is filling with ideas, opportunities, and yes the possible challenges as well.

My vision is that the series will go for a minimum of three months, be comprised of weekly video posts accompanied by blog posts and links for more information, and an open exchange of ideas, experiences, and feedback via email and responses on the HeartMatters.pro blog. The excitement of this dynamic idea being shared with the world, being shaped by interactions and feedback from the participants is a truly motivating gift to me, and one that I am honored to respond to.

Stay tuned for the first video tomorrow! Now, I’ve got to read up on how to overlay text onto a video recording…

Happy New Year!

HeartMatters and Man on the Go

I’ve been following Chris Brogan for about a year; Chris, through his company New Marketing Labs, works with large and mid-sized companies to improve online business communications like marketing and PR through the use of social software, community platforms, and other emerging web and mobile technologies. A colleague recommended that I follow Chris to glean strategies that would support my growing business. I have in fact integrated quite a lot of the valuable and relevant information imparted in his blog and video posts, have been directed to other savvy professionals that he has mentioned in his posts, and have perused some of the books he suggests. Chris’s message of building community by offering yourself and your particular area of expertise to others, willingly and genuinely, resonates with me. So I jumped at the chance to build my community alongside Chris, when I read about the introduction of his latest venture, Man on the Go–a travel advice and information website for the traveling professional (although the information applies to anyone that travels…).

I contacted Chris, created my first ever video, calling it Healthy Travel Tips for the Man on the Go, and loaded it to YouTube. He posted it yesterday on the Man on the Go website, and hey, I’m off and running. I’m excited that we’ll be collaborating to share an important message. Via the manonthego.com website, I will be sharing weekly healthy travel tips about eating well, staying physically active, and eliciting the relaxation response–all in the context of business travel–so that taking good care of your physical and emotional health is simply a routine aspect of every day.

When the busy professional optimizes his or her personal health and well-being, there is a noticeable enhancement of business success. Taking care of YOU on a personal level leads to professional accomplishment and prosperity.

Now that’s a undeniable ROI.

“When I began to work with Robin as a client, she immediately recognized that my success involved more than treating issues relating to my heart. Her knowledge and caring has given me the opportunity and confidence to improve my overall health and mental outlook for the future. I have received excellent care from many doctors but what may be more important is that Robin has made me want to do more for myself.
