I've spent a good part of my life studying successful people and I'm about to share with you a glimpse into what makes the difference between those who experience collossal, out of the world success and those that sink into mediocrity. 

I've got great news for you..... 

You don't need to spend hours laboring over business plans, because that's not what makes these people AMAZING.  You also don't need to spend millions of dollars on marketing and advertising....because that's not what put any of these people on the map.  You don't even need to work 60 hours a week to climb the ranks of the elite....because all of the people I've interviewed MADE IT to the top...and most don't spend every waking hour working. 

This fast paced one hour program is about EXECUTION.  It is about the power of ACTING ON simple techniques consistently so that the face of your business changes OVERNIGHT.  This class is packed with information...so much so that your hand will hurt from taking notes.  If you come to the class.....if you do something with the principles I teach....your business will take off RIGHT AWAY.  Leave your excuses at the door and come prepared for a new way of building a profitable real estate business.

Solarize Framingham: Presentation and Ice Cream Social

Please join Next Step Living for their Solarize Framingham Ice Cream Social (with complimentary ice cream from Mad Willies) on August 7 at 6:00 p.m.in the Blumer Room, 150 Concord Street, Framingham, MA 01701. Please RSVP at GoodEner.gy/Framingham or call 866-867-8729.

Last year, Next Step Living conducted energy efficiency outreach throughout Framingham, which resulted in about 1,000 homeowners getting home energy assessments. Almost half of those homeowners took additional steps to improve their homes’ energy efficiency and lower their utility bills by weatherizing their homes or installing a high-efficiency heating and cooling system called a ductless mini split. There are 2,500 Framingham homes with the opportunity to have roof top solar, your home could be one of them!

As part of the Solarize Framingham program, Next Step Living will be introducing homeowners to the benefits of solar power systems, which include:

• Savings of up to 25 percent. Relying on solar power for electricity makes you less susceptible to electricity rate increases.

• Increased resale value of your home. Solar power systems are an asset to a home if or when you decide to sell. For every $1,000 annual reduction in your utility costs, the value of the home increases by an estimated $20,000.

• Long lasting. Panels can last between 25 and 35 years, and there is no maintenance needed.

 Framingham residents who go solar before September 31, 2014 will take part in a tiered pricing structure that rewards residents by reducing the price as more Framingham residents sign up for solar through this program.

When: Aug 7, 2014 6 PM to Aug 7, 2014 8 PMin Framingham, Massachusetts (Thu, 07 Aug 2014 18 )
Sarah Berry "Castoffs & Containers" Opening Reception


Sarah Berry: Castoffs & Containers


July 10, 2014 - September 30, 2014


Opening Public Reception - August 3rd  7:00 - 9:00 pm

(right) Sarah Berry,  Trade, digital photograph


Unbound Visual Arts, Inc., and Athan’s Bakery and Caféare pleased to present the opening of Sarah Berry: Castoffs & Containers at the Athan’s Café Art Gallery in Brighton. This exhibition features Sarah Berry’s mixed media pieces that combine her photographs with objects - new or used – either previously discarded or destined to become castoffs. Her photography is photojournalistic in style, capturing scenes in clear detail often with a dash of bold color. The addition of objects relating to each photograph illustrates our attempts to contain our environment, our spirit, our physical being.  They prompt us to consider that, eventually, these objects will be discarded, becoming castoffs in the World.


Light and visually appealing, her work gently, and sometimes not so gently, reminds us of the impact our ‘stuff’ has on our unique and wondrous planet, Earth. Sarah’s repurposing of everyday items hints to us to imagine ways of reusing our containers and castoffs.

A public opening reception is Sunday August 3rd from 7:00-9:00 pm. The exhibition runs from July 9, 2014 through September 30, 2014 and is open daily from 8:00 am - 10:00 pm.  Athan’s Café Art Gallery, 407 Washington St., Brighton Center, MA.| MBTA: Buses 57, 65, 86, 501, 503 |  Handicapped accessible,  Free wi-fi and air-conditioned.

She is currently the program manager at The Art Connection and continues to make art that conveys her sense of humor, wanderlust, and care for the environment. Her work has been exhibited in the United States and Israel and is part of permanent collections in France, Washington DC, and Boston.  She has exhibited at Boston University, Boston City Hall, the Faneuil Library Art Gallery and in galleries in Fairfax, Virginia and Washington DC.

The chilly stone caves beneath our Cambridge store hold hundreds of pounds of cheese, from 80-pound wheels of Comté to delicate-rinded blues to small logs of Belgian goat’s milk cheese destined for our in-house aging program.

You’ll head underground with them to view and discuss the crucial role these temperature- and humidity-controlled rooms play in cheese aging, storage, and maintenance, and round out the lesson by tasting a few examples of what you’ve learned.

These are some of the best food wines in the world, and we'll explore how beautifully they work with Italian cheeses, olives, and olive oil too. We could easily do a 52-week Italian wine class and never run out of exciting wines to taste, but we'll try and jam all the delicious into just four weeks.

Boston Social Athletes | August Social

Boston Social Athletes is all about connecting people in Boston's fitness community, from the recreational to the Olympic level. Every athlete we've talked to has a great story, whether about sport, work, or life. We want to encourage you to be social and meet these great people from different sports, teams, businesses or communities. We thought 49 Social would be the perfect location for a challenge this month:

Your challenge is to connect with someone not from your community. In other words, if you're a triathlete, your goal is to connect with anyone you've never met that isn't a triathlete; If you're into the November Project, your goal is to connect with someone that's never been to the stadium. Once you meet that person or people, snap a picture and post it to social media with#OneTeamBOS. Include the sports you both/all are into. After the social, we'll all be able to look back at the new connections we've made.

The more people connect with each other, the bigger and stronger our community!

Pierogi Night

Do you love pierogi as much as we do? Eastern European music and dancing? Come prove it! On Thursday, August 7 Cuisine en Locale will team up with three local bands to create an evening to remember!

We're making pierogi stuffed with mushrooms, pierogi stuffed with pork, and our favorite, dill pickle soup! ???????

The Somerville Symphony Orkestar (http://www.ssoband.com) is an all-original Gyspy-Punk band. Formed in 2009, the SSO has been constantly gaining notice from many of the music scenes in and around New England. With the success of their first album, the SSO has shared the stage with the Rebirth Brass Band, Melvin Seal and the Gerry Garcia Band, and Jack Sonni (from the Dire Straits) among others. The SSO beats Balkan music, Klezmer, Funk, and Punk into a funk-punky pulp. The complex arrangements reign in the chaos only to explode into equal parts mosh-pit and horah.

Karikatura (http://karikaturanyc.com/) makes life-affirming, body-shaking music that moves people around the world. While the band has toured everywhere from Japan to Brazil, New York City is home. With bright horns, socially conscious lyrics and booty-bouncing beats, Karikatura delivers real songs that transcend style and genre.

Cocek! Brass Band (http://www.cocekbrassband.com/) is the brainchild of trumpet player Sam Dechenne. The band performs original music by Dechenne based on the sounds of Eastern European brass bands. They are a 5-piece group (2 trumpets, trombone, tuba and bass drum) that rocks the house on a very regular basis. The band's members come from internationally touring ensembles like John Brown's Body and Itzhak Perlman and bring a blend of dance music with emotive improvisation and melodies that evoke crazy dancing, contemplative thoughts and good times. This is not a band to be missed.

When: Aug 7, 2014 9 PM to Aug 8, 2014 12 AMin Somerville, Massachusetts
Cost: Suggested donation of $10 for the bands General Admission

Abigail Lee Goldberger: Fairytales & Enchantment Opening Reception

Unbound Visual Arts, Inc., is very pleased to announce the opening of Abigail Lee Goldberger: Fairytales & Enchantment, curated by Lee Collilouri,at Athan’s Café Art Gallery in Brookline. A public reception with the artist is Sunday July 27th from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. The exhibition runs from July 3, 2014 through August 31, 2014 and is open daily from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm.  Athan’s Café Art Gallery, 1621 Beacon Street (Washington Square), Brookline, MA.| MBTA: Green Line “C” | Handicapped accessible. Free wi-fi and air-conditioned.

Abigail Lee Goldberger is inspired by myths, nature, memories, folk art, children’s books, longing, science, and religion. Themes and stories begin to unravel as she layers multiple colors of oil paint onto the canvas. The balance of color and contrast contribute to the captivating mood, which is dreamlike and mysterious. Although the expressions in the characters are calm and the images are static, there is a sense of energy and movement in the whimsical and brave world that Abigail generates.

She stops the reality of the domain we live in and produces an escape, a fairytale utopia where a new universe is created on the canvas. Each surreal character is portrayed as an animal or human, and the new environment begins to tell a colorful story. Whether there is an innocent glowing baby floating in a misty sky and surrounded by purple flowers, or a majestic lion sitting on polka dotted grass with twinkling stars above him, the images become fascinating. It is important for viewers to carefully ponder the paintings, and for a moment become liberated in  Abigail’s fantasy realm.

Abigail Lee Goldberger, a member of Unbound of Visual Arts and a resident of Allston,  was born in Boston Massachusetts.  She has lived in various places across the United States and Australia. She graduated from University of Massachusetts Boston in 2012 with a BA in Latin American Studies and Iberian Studies while minoring in Environmental Science. Beyond her degree, Abigail has taken formal classes in animation, pottery, metalsmithing, printmaking, and drawing.  She has been immersed in art her entire life, and spent her childhood in her mother’s studio who was a stone sculptor. Being free and benefiting from making mistakes then seeing where they took her is why she chose to be primarily self-taught in painting. Abigail’s work is inspired by folk art, surrealism, and children’s books. She has shown in many exhibitions and events including; the Boston Convention & Exposition Center as part of the  MCCA’s Neighborhood Arts Program, Joy Street Open Studios in Somerville MA, and the Boston Biennial at The Gallery at Spencer Lofts, Chelsea, MA.

Lee Collilouri, of Allston Massachusetts, has always had a strong passion for the creative world of art. As a recent graduate from Lesley University College of Art and Design she received a Bachelors degree in Fine Art with a focus in painting. Her current work consists of vibrant and abstract large-scale oil paintings that emphasize fluid line shapes and forms.  She has been included in exhibitions throughout college, the most recently was a BFA thesis show “Chromatic Semblance” at the Vandernoot Gallery in Cambridge Massachusetts.  Beyond painting, art history is a special interest for Lee and she has studied it closely throughout her college program. She has experience assisting artists as well and planning, designing and installing artwork in commercial gallery settings. She remains fascinated by the purpose, importance and art of curating.

Unbound Visual Artsis a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable corporation based in Allston-Brighton and serving the Boston area.  It was incorporated in late 2012 to enliven the creative economy in contemporary fine art for artists and art supporters through curated exhibitions, education and sharing.
