Our Best Advice…and Wine!




What a thrill for Hot Coffee Coaching

to host “Your Best Shot”.

We enjoyed an evening of

connections, food & wine and the best advice in

health, wealth, relationship & career.

Here’s the skimmy on what you missed…

From wealth manager Heather Locus:

Know your number(s).

Get clear on what you have to have

and what you want to have.

It’s okay to dream a little…or a lot.

David Ainley, has learned a bit about relationships –

not only from being married 15+ years –

but from his work as a Chicago divorce attorney.

Look for parity. Sharing key values

is what keeps couples out of his office.

And speaking of health,

master trainer Cole Cruz, had this to say

about living the fit life:

Find something you can do.

Even a walk is better than nothing.

And, commit to some accountability

with a trainer or workout buddy.

You’ll be twice as likely to succeed.

Finally, Work/Life Coach, Julie Colbrese,

recalling her years of hiring,

encouraged those in career transition

to be “interested and interesting”.

Find something that lights you up;

talk about that.

And, don’t forget to ask about the other person.

Be genuinely interested and people will find you fascinating.
