Caron Grossman of Open Door Coaching to be Featured on Close Up Radio

SYRACUSE, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, April 2, 2020 / — There is nothing that can prepare you for the deep pain, loneliness and emptiness we feel when someone we love dies. What we once considered normal is now forever changed. There is a new language to learn and untraveled terrain to navigate that is personal to you and you alone.

Caron Grossman is a Transitional Life Coach and founder of Open Door Coaching, where she specializes in grief and end of life. Whether you are grieving a death, ending a relationship, the loss of a job, or any other life transition, Caron will walk with you as you open the door to healing and living the life you are meant to live.

“One thing I know to be true is that grief is not something we have to get through to get back to normal,” says Caron. “Grief is not a problem to be solved or resolved. It is something we must learn to dance with. You have to welcome grief.”

We have been taught that we should get over our grief, to move on. We’re never encouraged to invite it in and have a conversation. Grief has a voice and it deserves to be heard. Caron gives her clients permission to grieve.

“People do not want to feel pain. They do not want to be out of control,” says Caron. “I want everybody to be able to express themselves honestly and openly, so if you're working with me, you're going to feel it all the way. We’re going to embrace it, and we're going to walk through it together.”

Caron was first introduced to grief as a young girl when her mother died unexpectedly on Easter morning.

“I went down a really ugly path,” recalls Caron, “but I still had, even at 13 years old, the ability to meet people where they are.”

Caron would later become a registered nurse and worked extensively in organ donation. Through this experience, her path shifted toward working with people in grief, end of life and other complex life transitions. Soon it became her passion.

“Imagine grieving as you need to. Imagine a space where you are supported, where you are seen and heard exactly where you are with absolute acceptance,” says Caron. “It’s a space where all your thoughts, emotions and words can fly freely. I couldn't find that safe and sacred space to learn to live and love within the loss, so I created it!”

Caron says grief isn’t an event, it's the whole process. And it might be really beautiful.

“I just want to hold the space for people to experience it,” says Caron. “It's a privilege to be able to do that. I love what I do. I love the surprises and where it takes me.”

Close Up Radio will feature Caron Grossman in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on April 6th at 11am EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

Upgrade and re-energize your brand and image to continue competing in today's marketplace.

Just like you, your brand has a personality, and, like you, your brand will attract a certain type of individual”

— Carla Williams Johnson, founded Carli Communications

GREENWICH, CT, USA, April 2, 2020 / — Fotis Georgiadis, owner of the blog by his namesake, is a branding and image consultant specialist with a robust background and is a visionary interviewer. With a knack for pulling out a well-rounded interview, not only covering cutting edge technologies and corporate directions but also bringing out the personal side of the interviewee.

Markets change on an almost daily basis in some industries, while in others, they seem to be lost in the 1800's. Whichever extreme, or somewhere in between, a company, person or product is in, they always need to keep a keen eye on their brand and image view from the outside, not just internally. Fotis Georgiadis interviewed three individuals to discuss this very topic. Below are some excerpt from each of the three along with links to the full interview:

Adjani Jensen, a Freelance Digital Marketing Specialist
What are a few reasons why a company would consider rebranding?

There is necessary rebranding and opportunity rebranding. Necessary is when there has been some misstep on the part of the company and a new narrative is needed to not only address the problem but signify growth.

Then there’s the case of a company who is foreseeing stagnation of some sort and feels the best way to remain relevant is to rebrand. This kind of rebrand may highlight new leadership, opportunities, or products.

The key takeaway is both signal growth, whether it’s physical or intellectual. Showing the public that you can learn and apply what you have learned is a necessary step in any business. Explore the rest of the interview here.

Vitaly Pecherskiy, co-founder and chief operating officer at StackAdapt
What are a few reasons why a company would consider rebranding?

Generally, I would consider a rebrand only if things are trending downwards because rebrand is somewhat counter to our motto of doing more of what works. That said, some companies outgrow their brand and should consider a redesign to better reflect their current reality. However, given how many failures of brand relaunches there are, I think it’s better to go with “brand optimization”, so to speak, rather than a full-blown rebrand.

A full-scale re-brand is exhaustive — it’s a budget and time drain on companies. When a company hits growing pains, lagging sales or customer attrition usually brand gets blamed first because the perception is that brand is easy to ‘fix’. It’s only after companies go through the work of re-messaging and re-branding that they realize that brand wasn’t the problem in the first place.

Brand optimization is a more iterative process that makes sense with scaling businesses, especially in crowded or high-growth markets. It’s a process that allows a company to take its brand framework, and break it down into bite-sized chunks that can be tweaked, tested and measured over time. Brand optimization is a more modern approach that continues to build brand, rather than tear it down and start from scratch. The latter means a company is willing to sacrifice the digital cache they’ve built, which isn’t often the best choice.

Recently we refreshed our brand to graduate StackAdapt from “start-up” to “grown-up” and better reflect the level of clients we partner with. We started by doing a visual audit of our brand to determine what works, what doesn’t and why not. Then by leveraging some of the best practices extended to our own clients and their creative assets and campaigns, we started to map out a blueprint for the StackAdapt brand refresh. The lowest hanging fruit was the visual design elements that could help our brand be readily identifiable — colour palette and font family — redefining our brand guidelines and then ensuring and reinforcing consistency in their use. This was the least intrusive, but most impactful exercise that enabled us to implement a phased approach to our brand refresh.

As a technology company, we often see brands struggle in making their creatives fresh and engaging. Sometimes it can just take an injection of some data-driven and creative best practices to supercharge a brand through creative assets and ingenuity.

It is also important to determine the degree that your brand needs a refresh — identify and build on your strengths, reinforce the brand elements that your following is familiar with and loves, and apply some creativity to it. In fact, you don’t necessarily need to change your branding itself, rather upgrade the messaging and how you present your brand’s image. Read the complete interview here.

Carla Williams Johnson, founded Carli Communications
What are a few reasons why a company would consider rebranding?

Building a brand isn’t just about what you do but how you are viewed by others. If your current design doesn’t quite capture the true essence of who you are it may actually be working against your marketing efforts.

Remember, your logo and other visual representations of your brand including fonts, images and colors should reflect your brand’s personality and what your customers can expect from you.

Other reasons companies should consider rebranding are:

Mergers & Acquisitions: as two companies are now coming together, a rebranding may be in order to be easily recognized by customer;

Technology/Innovation: If the company’s main product/service is technology based then as technology evolves, so too should their branding;

Repositioning or Growth: If the company has grown or now needs to be positioned to attract a new market segment, then a rebranding will be in order. Explore and learn from the entire interview here.

By keeping your image fresh and brand exciting, the market will react positively. While this could be relatively easy for some, it might seem overwhelming for others. Fotis Georgiadis' interviews with a wide variety of people on this topic should further guide you through this process, including Fotis himself.

Board Certified Chaplains are Responding to Calls and Communications to Provide Spiritual Comfort, Support During These Uncertain Times

SCA is honored to now be able to provide profession-specific spiritual care for First Responders. This would include all police, fire, EMS and chaplains in the field.”

— SCA President and CEO the Rev. Eric J. Hall

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, April 2, 2020 / — Spiritual Care Association has expanded their new website, A Time for Compassion, at It is populated with advice and guidance to alleviate fears and anxieties during this national crisis.

SCA is also offering people the chance to email or call and speak to a chaplain. This free service is available for members of the public.

In addition, SCA has now created a dedicated line and email for those working in the front lines of first response and health care, which is staffed by chaplains with unique expertise in these areas.

"SCA is honored to now be able to provide profession-specific spiritual care for First Responders. This would include all police, fire, EMS and chaplains in the field. We are also proving profession-specific support and spiritual care to health care providers," said SCA President and CEO the Rev. Eric J. Hall. "This is indeed a time for compassion.

Concierge Auctions Global Sale Kicks Off, Shattering Estimates with 100% Properties Sold and $200M+ in Online Bids

Concierge Auctions March 2020 Global Sale

Concierge Auctions March 2020 Global Sale

Over the past 10-plus years, matching sellers of one-of-a-kind properties with the most capable buyers on the planet has been core to what we do every day.”

— Chad Roffers, Chairman, Concierge Auctions

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, April 2, 2020 / — Concierge Auctions announced today bidding for its March Global Sale kicked off Tuesday, shattering estimates with 100% of properties sold. From Thailand to Malibu to The Hamptons, featured offerings included two villas in Phuket, an historic inn in The Hamptons, a coastline compound in Malibu, and a penthouse at The Ritz-Carlton San Francisco. The sale resulted in thousands of prospects and over $200 million in online bids from buyers spanning 8 countries—Russia, France, Hong Kong, Singapore, the UK, Thailand, Bali, and the U.S.—via the firm’s platform,, which allows buyers to view and place bids remotely from across the globe.

“Over the past 10-plus years, matching sellers of one-of-a-kind properties with the most capable buyers on the planet has been core to what we do every day. With bidders from around the world, yesterday’s auction is proof of the market’s need for our solution in the buying and selling of luxury properties,” stated Chairman Chad Roffers.

“We remain focused on fostering lasting relationships and delivering results to every buyer, every seller, and every agent who will benefit from our services in this unpredictable climate and are innovating full-force on even more ways for buyers to digitally discover offerings. For sellers, our process is the most effective way to bring liquidity on a defined timeline. By purchasing through our platform, buyers know they are paying a fair price—only one bid above the next-highest bidder. And, of course, we always work in partnership with the brokerage community, with protected commissions on both sides. This confidence is especially comforting in times like today,” added Roffers.

The sale follows Concierge Auctions recent auctions of one of Singer Island, Florida’s most prestigious properties—marking six sales in just six days’ time—and a 9.5-acre estate on Hawaii’s Big Island, which sold for over the prior list price after having been on the market for two-plus years. It is also on the heels of the firm’s recent successful sales in Hong Kong, New York City, and Dubai, which resulted in over 180 bidders and record prices.

“We have sincerest gratitude to the Concierge Auctions team for bringing about the successful sale of the Picasso of Malibu. For over 41 years, my firm, recognized as No. 1 in its space, has been teaching leading financial institutions throughout the world consultative selling beginning with cultural and behavioral change. In this connection, my mottos have always been, ‘Creativity without implementation is worthless,’ and ‘Executional excellence is the true chariot of genius,’ stated sellers Ed and Shari Brown. “That very genius was demonstrated to us throughout the entire Concierge Auctions marketing, promotions, and prospecting process leading up to our successful close. For this reason, we would refer any property owner, large or small, to the experience, wisdom, methodologies, and executional excellence of the Concierge Auctions team.”

My Grief Angels, a Guidestar Platinum Non-Profit, is Launching Coronavirus Grief Support Virtual Groups for the 500,000 to 1,200,000 Who May Soon Be Grieving

Top officials predict 100,000 to 240,000 COVID19 deaths, and if we assume 5 grieving survivors per death, that's between 500,000 to 1,200,000 Americans facing grief and a new grieving process in weeks”

— Augusto Failde, Author & Developer of the “Grief MOOC”

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, April 1, 2020 / — On Tuesday of this week, after watching the emotional interview of a Salt Lake City LatinX father who had just lost his 24 year old daughter to coronavirus, a group of volunteers from the My Grief Angels non-profit communicated thru texts, video and phone on what could be done to help grieving families like the family of Utah’s youngest COVID19 victim. The result of those virtual communications and brainstorming is a new public service initiative to provide free daily English and Spanish language virtual grief support group meetings for the grieving families and friends of people who have died from the coronavirus.

The schedule on the free multilingual groups is now available on the new site, and the first virtual group meetings are set to launch this weekend. The initial groups will be offered at 12 noon (EST) in Spanish and 1pm (EST) in English daily to allow for the various USA time zones. In an effort to make these accessible to individuals and households who may have limited internet access, the video conferencing platform Zoom was chosen for its greater reliability with lower internet speeds. Participants can join the virtual meetings via their desktop, tablet or cell phones.

The new free COVID19 Grief Support site,, also includes English and Spanish videos for tech-friendly and non-tech friendly participants on how to use the free video conferencing tool for the first time and how to participate in these groups. In addition, a section highlighting examples of how grief and our grieving processes are being impacted by this deadly virus is also shared on the new site.

Social Distancing and Love at Shema Kolainu

Dr. Joshua Weinstein, Founder and CEO of Shema Kolainu - Hear our Voices

Dr. Joshua Weinstein, Founder and CEO of Shema Kolainu – Hear our Voices

Dr. Joshua Weinstein, the founder and CEO of Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices (SKHOV), begins each school day with a message to staff through Zoom.

When we give unconditional love to the others, especially our children, in the classrooms and at home to our own children, we give it back to ourselves”

— Dr. Joshua Weinstein, founder and CEO of Shema Kolainu

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, April 1, 2020 / — Dr. Joshua Weinstein, the founder and CEO of Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices, begins each school day with a message to staff through Zoom. The school has adapted its specialized curriculum so that students with autism can take part in distance education while they are quarantined at home, using Zoom as an education portal.

“Children are now distant from their teachers, friends and family,” Dr. Weinstein said, speaking from his home office. “We’ve closed the schools, children and adults are home, people are working from home and we are being relegated to video conference. Is this going to be our new social norm? While disappointment is natural, this is the right and necessary thing to do at this time.”

Despite the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the impact of COVID-19 that has frozen New York City and the United States, Dr. Weinstein concludes his daily message on an inspirational note before sharing with his social media followers on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and Instagram.

“When we give unconditional love to the others, especially our children, in the classrooms and at home to our own children, we give it back to ourselves,” he said.

After the message, the staff breaks off into groups to go over daily educational goals and distance learning schedules. Once the staff has received their assignments, SKHOV educators, therapists and special service providers conduct their distance learning courses to all enrolled students.

“Video chat is not a perfect substitute for real face-to-face intervention and interaction,” Dr. Weinstein acknowledged. “Spending time on Zoom is unlikely to feel as satisfying as being in the same room with our children, it goes completely opposite of our mission of verbal behavior."

While distance learning and homeschooling can be difficult for both parents and children, it is even more challenging for children with autism spectrum disorder who require individualized instructions and custom-made scheduling that provides support and therapy throughout the day. Still, parents of students at SKHOV have expressed their appreciation for the program that has provided valuable relief and excitement to their children during these difficult times.

Until this crisis has passed, Shema Kolainu – Hear our Voices promises to continue its mission to hear the voices of the families and children that they serve, inspiring and encouraging them to achieve their full potential for independence, productivity, and personal growth.

Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices founded by Dr. Joshua Weinstein, offers a broad spectrum of evidence-based education and therapeutic programs to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, (ASD) and related disabilities in a warm and nurturing environment. A nonpublic, nonprofit, multi-cultural school, we provide quality treatment, education, professional training and mentoring.
