HALF FULL “BARES ALL” IN SUPPORT OF WOMEN
Founder Turns on the Sass after Rediscovering her Own Personal Inner & Outer Beauty
(Hoboken, NJ)– June 28, 2012. Rebecca Twitchell, founder of half full, is taking the trust of her Clients to a whole new level. The focus of a recent advertising campaign for one of the company’s newest Personal Development Forwards, Twitchell has admittedly “put herself out there” to remind women that they all have something special to offer to the world, whether they feel it yet or not. Designed by women, exclusively for women, the most recent in the half full Personal Development Forward series is titled “Rediscovering Your Inner & Outer Beauty” and highlights Twitchell’s biggest insecurity.
“The best way, the only way, for me to really help others build confidence in how they feel inside and out is to be honest about my own insecurities,” said Twitchell. “My story is usually told at the beginning of a Forward to earn trust from the group, but this time I knew I had to share it much earlier so the women attending this Forward will feel comfortable just signing up. It’s a scary thing walking into a room admitting that you can use a boost in self esteem --believe me, I know!”

LOCAL CONSTRUCTION LEADER FIGHTS BACK, ECONOMY LOSES
San Diego President Does the “Right Thing” by Stepping Out as a High Ranking Executive and Getting Back to Basics
SAN DIEGO, CA – June 9, 2011.
James Frager, two-time President in the San Diego construction industry did what any good leader would do in the face of company survival mode. He put everyone else first. Given the rapid contraction his company was experiencing in the market, his concern for his employees and his commitment to his family, Frager made the tough decision to sell his company, step out as a high ranking executive and go back to focusing on developing and leading from within.
While most leaders might experience an emotional setback with a title change from President to Senior Construction Manager, Frager accepted his new title with pride. “It’s what I love,” said Frager, “and to be able to offer my experience to help build an organization with good growth potential is just icing on the cake.”
Frager admits that there are still several obstacles to overcome in the industry such as lending relationships, working capital and rebuilding the employment base with quality and competitive wages. But like most leaders who have just been through some of the hardest years of their lives, Frager feels like he has gotten through the worst of it and that things are only looking up.
