TIPS & TRICKS

Here's Why I SHOWED UP LATE On Purpose

2 MINUTES LATE:  “Are you almost here?”

6 MINUTES LATE:  “Everyone is here! Where are you?”

13 MINUTES LATE:  “Did you forget about the meeting?”

20 MINUTES LATE:  “Is everything okay, Remi?”

This was a training exercise that our team never forgot…

One of the things that I’m known for is my punctuality. It’s not uncommon for clients to tell me “My gosh, when you say 1:30pm you really mean 1:30pm!”

TIME is a commodity I put a high value on both for others and myself.

So when I told my team “today’s meeting is particularly important so please make sure to be here by 3pm and don’t be late”NO ONE was late…  except for me!

You see, back in the summer of 2009 we had started to meet every Monday afternoons at 3:30pm for some coaching, bonding & to basically give everyone a chance to voice their concern or offer solutions to existing problems...

Change Your LIGHT SOURCE... Change Your Colors

Is it possible to "Change the Colors" in your home simply by changing light bulbs?

The answer is, ABSOLUTELY!

For color to appear, it requires LIGHT. 

NO LIGHT = NO COLOR

But light can have different COLOR TEMPERATURES based on the time of day (light coming from the sun)... or the type of light bulbs we choose (light generated from inside our home).

Be sure to watch this weeks video for a clear example on how different color can appear in different lighting environments.

From Dark To FULL of COLOR

It's been a little over 3 months since I released a new video.

The reason for this break was because I had a few BIG PROJECTS on the go and I wanted to make sure not to spread myself too thin. One of those projects involve me now having to wear a ring :)

So yesterday afternoon, I got ready to shoot some new videos but something changed a few minutes after I sat down with this cup of Tea...

The result?

A video that is perhaps a bit different than what you may be used to seeing from me... but I believe strongly that it has the potential of affecting you (in a positive way) so much more than anything I could ever teach you about Painting or Color...
