"Don't Play Small Here, PLAY BIG!" -Ed Gerety

It was September of 1999, when I first heard of, "dream boards and vision boards."  

I was a freshman student at Saint Joseph's College of Maine (Standish, ME) the setting was 'welcome weekend' for the entire freshman class of SJC.  The guest motivational speaker was a New Hampshire native, a gentlemen by the name of Ed Gerety.  

That day will forever remain with me, Ed changed my life. I was on the edge of my seat for his entire presentation glued to every word he said. It was towards the end of his speech, he spoke about having a vision, get clear about our goals, start to live the life we have imagined. Make, create a vision board! The stats and the strength behind dream boards, how to do it, what to do, why to do it. That's all I needed to hear. Once he concluded, after shaking his hand to say thank you, I sprinted back to my dorm room and created my very own dream board!

I took it very seriously, I looked at my dream board on a daily basis, I envisioned what I wanted to achieve, to accomplish. Well, throughout my four years, the magic happened, everything

I placed on my board started to come true.

Ed's peaceful presence and powerful message still rings true today.

Fast forward 15-years later... September 16th, 2014 (today) I, Nicholas Mirabello was honored to introduce Ed Gerety on stage. I sat and experienced his powerful presentation to the Freshman Class of Winnacunnet High School and spent quality time with Ed after his presentation.

I am extremely grateful to still have the excellent opportunity to learn from him and to continue going and growing as I build my dream career at UROCK Marketing. Encouraging others to not play small here, but rather to Play Big & DREAM BIG!! I facilitate Vision Board Parties, I have the desire to inspire. Just like Ed inspired me, I want to help make the change in your life. Boost your confidence levels and let you know you can do it. Ed said it today; "It's time to step up and stand up for yourself!"

Yes! Stand up for your future because, UROCK!
