How are you sharing your journey? Part 1 of 2...

Well hello everyone… I am coming to you from beautiful Dallas Texas… Where everything is bigger including the heat ha ha .....
It is a beautiful hump day, I've been traveling the road to get here...so today is the day I can post.


I am at the eWomen network international conference. This is my seventh or eighth conference and it always amazes me how many wonderful women and men I get to meet here. As Sandra always says it is all about the access you can give to someone.

 We have been doing Facebook live to promote not only our beautiful new Ava's Eye bagz yet to promote other businesses as well... as we bring a little piece of the conference to you. I get to meet so many wonderful entrepreneurs here. As Sandra always says it is all about the access you can give to someone. ....Sandra is the founder and CEO of eWomen network…

So what are you doing to share your journey? With all the ways we have to share these days, if you are not doing it already, you need to tap into something that you are comfortable and familiar with.  I know it's the rule of thumb to step out of your comfort zone  and work in realms, and with people,  that you are not familiar with or that you might be a little uncomfortable with.  That said, to take someone on a journey with you, you need to work in mediums that you know. A good author writes about things that they know. So when you are taking someone along for the ride stick to things that you know, use social media that you are familiar with , Or that you at least have a good understanding of.

 Maybe you are a podcast -er or host a webinar or write a column for the local paper… Whatever it is invite us in and bring us on the journey with you… This week we will be sharing some photos and some stories of the journey I am taking this year. I am spending the Summer tweaking some of my business practices and procedures and what we can do to move forward. This conference is a great place to make that happen. So sit back and enjoy the journey as we visit some amazing women and men  here at the eWomen network international conference in Dallas.

The 2 new FACES of Atlantic City... A Rock and a Ball !!!

Wow ! The 4th is almost here so I've been saving this post for today to wish you all a fabulous celebration of  our Country's Independence. If  you are reading this from Outside the U.S., I hope you will take a moment to share in the joy with us and use every moment of your life to create your own joy !


                                                 BERMAN REALITY AT HARD ROCK


Thank you all for taking this blog post to over 61,000 viewers ! We are read in over 5 Countries....this post includes a lot of little stories that go along with it....one of which that the new Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is operating in over 75 Countries around the World. So along with our Nation's Celebrations, Hard Rock Celebrates all over the World.  Much to be thankful for this holiday weekend....  Above is local Radio Personality Marc Berman. I just love catching people catching the action !

Let's start with the new Ocean Resort Casino. If you remember, this was the REVEL with a huge ball that sits atop the building. We found out that this is a remote controlled panel so all kinds of things can be put onto that ball....Now that it is the Ocean Resort, their theme is going to be " Have a ball".... so if you ride by and look up....you can see a great big Beach Ball lighting up that ball atop the building.


We know all the execs. are excited about the new found spirit in Atlantic City. This was a deal that came within 9 minutes of not happening.... and now, it's another unique AC experience. The views from the boardwalk levels are amazing and overlook the Ocean. Walking paths and scenic areas to relax grace that space. Ocean Resort has also employed Ambassadors, many of them college students, to act as escorts to various places around the property.... Welcome to the new Ocean Resort !

Next, we move on to the iconic name of the HARD ROCK hotel and casino.  They have taken over the building formerly known a the Taj.  Honored to be part of the press for both properties, we had an amazing day at the grand openings.....




 This is a step forward for the Seminole Tribes, who are partners in the Hard Rock Brand. It was great to hear and see the tribe around for the day....






 Let's see if I can sum it up quickly with photos...there were so many memories....

From Meeting the very first Hard Rock employee, Miss Rita, to the fabulous food at the Press Luncheon...the day was just amazing.... Check out the photos and captions....



 Yours truly with Miss Rita, what a blast....





 A guitar and plaque handed to the son of Mark Etess as they re dedicated the Theater and entertainment space.....





 Miss Beverly showing off her barefoot sandals with guitar pick sewn in...



Fabulous Food ....





Local Reporters from SNJ Nick and from Shore Local Magazine Steve....Earl from AC Times...The new Miss New Jersey Jaime Gialloreto.... and from the legendary E Street Band... Mr.  Vini Lopez....


One of my fav's....Elvis' Rolls in the lobby.... and on the big screen as you ride up the escalator....

And also, while I was at the event..... a photo sent to me of the guitar travelling up on the highway....thank you !



CEO of Hard Rock Jim Allen made the day quite special.... Over 50,000 applications came in to the property and 3,900 of the best and brightest were selected to kick off the Residence of Hard Rock into AC.... They position themselves as an Entertainment Brand not a Casino Brand so things are done just a little differently....They are committed to providing World Class Entertainment, World Class food and more ....

Ocean Resort will be sporting Free parking for the Summer as well. With 2 great Faces, Casinos, Resorts, Entertainment.... AC is enjoying an excitement that has been missing for some time now.
When you are in the area, check out the boardwalk with all of it's great Casinos and shops and be sure to visit both Ocean Resort and Hard Rock !!!

Withe the slogans.... "Have a Ball" and "Love all, serve all"...we are sure to see these brands around for quite some time !

Enjoy !

Wow...this is amazing ! How to get yours....

Helllllloooo all,

Wow, being a one woman show has certainly taken its toll on my time. I know some of you can relate. I can't believe it was 3 years ago when we did the 365 day blog challenge ! Wow.... I'm exhausted just getting in here each week and I did that everyday for a year!  Actually, I love it..... just finding time for things has become hard....

It is so important to make those connections that will carry you through your life with each other, like the ones I have made with Marco Panting of Mr.Panting Productions, Geri Petito of Hamilton Radio, Manager Kathy Cossu, Lisa Diane Hall of LD TV, Jayne Rios of Women on TV, Michelle Verbit of Motives, Linda McLaughlin of Motives, Taina Speaks of Business with a twist, Raymond Tyler "The Closer",  and countless others.... You know who you are....

So Taina gave me this gorgeous gift the other night.... little did I know it was going to be a beautiful and long lasting connections of sorts.... say hello to

                    "ERBEN CREATIONS".......


You can find this amazing product on Face Book under ERBEN CREATIONS.... so let's get into this...

When his job was lost, he started working at repairing and selling electronics to make ends meet.  He picked up a project to customize an Xbox. He added LED's, glowing fans and custom etching.  Being friends with our friend Taina, he was encouraged to do this as a business. Her suggestions made sense yet he honestly didn't think anyone would be interested in this.....




It's hard to see the beauty in these photos yet you can check it out on his page. These images are created in a sort of Plexiglas and are able to sit on a battery operated base that lights up.

Just as an experiment, the idea was tried....

Initially, hand tools were used that created a rough surface and a quality that was not appreciated by the founders, however people still liked it.  In doing research, machines were found that could be utilized by outsourcing yet that wasn't cost effective by any means. More research.... LOL

So.... a product was discovered that could be used at home. Even though it was difficult times this product was purchased along with the time to learn the software to use it properly. A new business is born and I can't wait to share it with the World. It's unique and beautiful and every business should have one on the desk, at events or even privately with facial etchings to show off at cocktail parties and private events....

When you visit the face book page you can actually see a short video of the machine in use.

Welcome, ERBEN CREATIONS.... I can't wait to see you light up the World !
