I met Erika a few years ago at Piccola Wine Cellars when she was hosting a jewelry show. I immediately fell in love with her organic style, but in particular, I was drawn to the most beautiful aquamarine ancient ring. I later told my husband Ben about this stunning ring and months later I became the happy recipient of this gem at Christmas! So, it is with great excitement that I introduce you to Erika Laureano and her brand-new Design Studio filled with handcrafted jewelry. Upon entering this chic downtown NB studio,  you will notice Erika's art draping the walls and her cutting edge jewelry designs that fill the room showcase her unique one of a kind style. 

Erika is all about supporting and growing local businesses and has been not only

Do You Have The Courage and Fearlessness to Elevate Your Business in 2018?

Establishing purpose, fearlessness, and determination.

When you look at businesses across the real estate industry, you see the ones that succeed all share a common trait: they have purpose. The idea of establishing purpose is absolutely critical to any entrepreneur’s journey if they plan to grow their business.

Not every business listed for sale will ultimately sell. In fact, some trade groups in our industry have stated that less than 10% of businesses that are listed "for sale by owner" will actually sell!  They go further and say that businesses that are listed by Business Brokers actually have a 40-50% probability of selling.  That's a 4 to 5 times improved rate of success, when a business uses a business broker!  As a business broker, this is great, but I know why this is the case.  I, myself, as well as other Business Brokers (at least the good ones), screen the businesses we want to work with.  We have limited time and resources, so we want to take on clients whose businesses we KNOW have a greater chance of selling.

Seasoned investors seeking their road to wealth will readily acknowledge that the easiest and surest path to long term wealth is through holding a portfolio of houses. And the best way to keep your houses is using the lease options. To appreciate how important lease options are to your financial prosperity, it is important to first having an understanding of what a lease option is.

Lease options as an exit strategy may or may not result in the actual sale of your property. You are renting the house out to someone and giving them an option to later buy it.

It is customary to charge 3-5% of the
