Greetings, and thanks for reading. Well, the time is almost here for Resolutions. Not for your personal resolutions, of course, because those were set a few weeks ago – I’m talking about the event that is focused on helping you achieve your success throughout the year! After nine months of visualizing and about four months of actual planning and organizing, we are entering the last few days before Resolutions comes to the Hilton Scranton & Conference Center on Sunday, Jan. 25.

Every person who has heard me talk about the event knows how truly passionate I am about creating this amazing community event that will benefit all in attendance. The reaction has been overwhelmingly positive, and many people have given the same response, “This is truly a one-of-a-kind event,” which has been my intention all along. My goal was to create a unique event that would help people in all areas of life.

Think about it – we are social beings with complex and full lives; we don’t live in a hollow or boxed-in lifestyle. We exist both personally and professionally, health and wellness should play an important part in our lives, we have our futures to consider, and, of course, we have social lives for entertainment purposes that provide an opportunity to enjoy the arts and cultural activities in our community. These are the reasons for having such a diverse and interactive lineup and schedule of events.

Resolutions, as an event, is about bringing together the many phenomenal local professionals who are motivated to help others create success in their lives this year, and to provide an opportunity for attendees to meet these individuals face-to-face and foster an atmosphere of learning and growth.

Resolutions, as an idea, is about inspiring and encouraging others to go out and create events, projects, and programs that will enrich our NEPA community and the people who live here.

I’d also like to take a moment to publicly thank the co-producers of this event – without their help, none of this would be possible. Thank you to John Phillips and the MCR Productions team for handling the physical production of this event. MCR is, hands down, the best production company in Eastern Pennsylvania, and I’m honored to work with them. Thank you to the good people of Lotus Pug Yoga Studio and Wellness Center, especially Miranda Russell and Amber Russo, for teaching the classes, assisting with production, and for being my sounding board for ideas. I’d like to thank my Sector One Ent. family, especially Ricky Dunkailo, Matt Suchoski, and Phil Bendsen for loaning your time and professional services. A very special thank you to all volunteers, sponsors, friends for promoting, vendors, and everyone who has shown Resolutions love and support from the beginning. And lastly, I’d like to thank the many great presenters, teachers, and artists who will be present to share their love, passion, and expertise with those in attendance. Plus, a special and personalized thank-you to Marty Wolff for being a true mentor since our introduction over a year ago.

Additionally, I’d like to notice and thank one of my best friends – Nick Brogna for doing an outstanding job on my website. Wow is all I can say! Thanks to Keith Perks of 1120 Studios for the graphic design and branding for the event. Also, thanks to Sara Pokorny for writing the press releases and for all the editing work you’ve done for me in the last few months. I’d also like to thank Rich Howells for creating this fantastic web publication and for assisting with media coverage.

I’m sure I have about a hundred more people I can and should thank, and many of those people will be found in the Resolutions program and connection guide, which will be released digitally following the event.
