An event at the Huntington Beach Central Library

The public is invited to an afternoon reception at the HB Public Library (7111 Talbert Ave) on Tuesday, January 27 from 2:30 PM to 5 PM – featuring 19 authors and illustrators of children's books. These authors and illustrators will have spent the day at local schools, sharing your love of reading, writing and the creative writing experience with our students.

You can meet and greet these authors and illustrators at the Library, and they can sign and personalize books for all the special children in your life. Books are the perfect gift for children – no need to worry about size or color, no assembly required and batteries not needed! AND these personalized books will be treasured by students long after other toys break or are given away.
Barnes & Noble will be at the library reception to sell the authors' books.

That afternoon, the Friends of the Children's Library and the Sand Scribes Children's Writing Group will host awards ceremonies for 42 local students who are winners of our Writing and Illustrating Contest "Spin Us a Story" and their winning entries will be on display in the library lobby through the month of February. We hope to see you at the library Tuesday afternoon!

Happy New Year Huntington Beach

Here we are well in to the first of 2015.  I hope everyone had a great holiday season and is ready for a prosperous year.  I know I started the year off with a bang and business is booming.

I'm not one for the term New Years resolutions, as a friend of mine claims, you are setting yourself up for failure when you make standard resolutions just because it is the first of the year.  Proper goals, however, are another story. Since fitness and getting in shape or losing weight continue to be on the top of most people'slist,  a local trainer here in town has a challenge for you.  Beau Beavers of Hit It or Quit It Fitness wants to help.  Beau, a former college decathlete has dedicated his life to fitness.  He knows most people sign up for a gym at the first of the year and last about a month failing for various reasons.  Now that we are ending that first month, if you want to reach the success you set out to achieve, check out what Beau is offering locals - download his bio and offer HERE.

Another popular goal for folks is to make improvements in their business.  Often folks don't know how to go about doing this.  May I suggest checking out Vaughn Sigmon with The Alternative Board.   He has over 35 years experience successfully leading, growing, and managing businesses.  Talk to him and see if he can help you and your business:  714-421-6498 or

Enough of business, how about some fun!!
