Rewards of Success: Super Bowl Weekend 2015

6 02 2015

Over the summer of 2014 Horizon Innovations participated in a client-run competition between 100+ partners to win a trip to the 2015 Super Bowl. The results of the competition were gauged by the amount of revenue the office brought for the client and their overall quality of work.

Once the contest concluded, the results were counted and Horizon Innovations came out on top. The competition was very close and we could not have succeeded without the help from everyone on our team achieving the top results. This competition is proof of how much hard work can really pay off.

“Ever since I started at Entry Level, I dreamed about competing in these competitions,” said Nora, President of Horizon Innovations. “Attending the Super Bowl has been a life-long dream of mine that I am finally able to cross off my Bucket List.”

Last weekend, our leaders touched down in Arizona to finally reap the rewards of this amazing opportunity. Our client rented a six bedroom house in Scottsdale, Arizona that included all of the amenities: a pool, hot tub, putting green, pool table and much more. From Thursday to Sunday our leaders lived in this house as if it was their own. In fact, for the first day spent in Scottsdale was mostly relaxing and becoming familiar with their surroundings while socializing and having fun.

The next night, Friday, we attended the Waste Management Phoenix Open Golf Tournament. It was such a memorable opportunity to witness some of the greats of golf playing in person. We saw Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Padraig Harrington, and Bubba Watson just to name a few. The entire day was a joyous occasion for all of us and surely not one we will easily forget.

The following Saturday was equally as life changing as we had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend the Maxim Super Bowl Party of 2015. Our leaders found themselves surrounded by celebrities like Nick Cannon, Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, and sports stars such as Kirk Herbstreit. Our managers even got to snap a picture with Adam from Man vs. Food. The entire night was full of merriment and famous faces.

When the day finally arrived for the Super Bowl, everyone was in high spirits. Our leaders attended one last party before the event: the VIP Pregame Party. While in attendance, our President Nora was able to meet one of her idols, Shaun Alexander, who played for the Seattle Seahawks. It is not everyday that it is possible to run into someone so influential in your life, and Nora will not soon forget that moment.

“It was the trip of a lifetime to get to watch my NFL team in person,” said Nora. “I continue to look for new opportunities where I can bring my entire team along for the fun. This competition is a true testament that you can achieve anything that you set your mind to through hard work and dedication.”





Horizon Innovations: Expansion to Miami

23 12 2014

Horizon Innovations has thrived off of the same proven-to-work corporate structure for years. We accept every new candidate at the same entry level in order to promote the same knowledge and work ethic within all of our employees. Our former Assistant Manager, Christopher Healy, started with our business two years ago in November 2012 at the entry level. He was born and raised in Buffalo, New York, graduated with a degree in Forensic Science, and had no prior business experience when starting with Horizon Innovations. As of November 2014, he runs his own branch in Miami, Florida.

While the drive to become successful was always within him, the training and knowledge that Healy gained with our company made him well prepared to take on the opportunity of running a business. “The preparation to run my own branch came from my student mentality and keeping it a constant with all my mentors.” Chris said. “The ability to move forward in this business comes not only from within, but also the many resources around you.”

As of this moment, Christopher has two goals that he plans on fulfilling as a new branch manager in the Miami area. (1) Teach those individuals that start with his office of this completely reachable opportunity, and (2) promote out two individuals from his office before the end of 2015, just as our President did for him. Christopher Healy will be well on his way to becoming the Rookie Manager of the Year. Everyone at Horizon is extremely excited for Chris and the strides he has made to better himself both personally and professionally.

“I am very confident in his ability to succeed,” says President, Nora Su. “I’ve watched him grow right in front of my eyes. He’s become more mature, more professional, and overall a better person over the last two years. He has some big goals, but he has the ability to accomplish whatever he sets his mind to. I am excited to see him continue to grow the new branch.”

“I am honored to have been given the opportunity to work side by side with Chris,” says our Human Resources Manager, Dustin. “He has grown so much over time into such a great business professional. He is destined for success and has already gotten started on the right track!”

Keep up the great work Chris. The entire Horizon Innovations team is cheering you on!

Horizon Innovations Reviews: West Palm Beach Leaders Conference

9 12 2014

Our office is always filled with excitement when we are preparing for a new conference or travel opportunity. Every one of our leaders works that much harder to make sure they reach their goals to claim a spot. The latest conference that we attended was the Leaders Conference held in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Sixteen of our best leaders got together and travelled south for the conference. The main focus of this meeting was to present new information, take in that knowledge and use it as a force to motivate. Julie Edmonds, a senior national consultant recognized by our office, was in charge of the conference and told multiple anecdotes about personal experiences that everyone could learn from.

Afterwards, we transitioned into four different “break-out” sessions. Each group was broken up based on their length of stay with the company (i.e. 3-6 months, 6+ months, etc.) These sessions covered topics ranging from training and work ethic to time management and team development.

Before the conference was concluded, two of our best leaders, RJ and Eric, were recognized as being the top performing leaders of Horizon Innovations. This honor was one that the accepted excitedly, and our whole office commends them for their hard work. Conferences like these cause our team members to rally around each other and find new ways to motivate and encourage everyone to stay on the path to success.

Horizon Innovations Reviews: The Importance of Business Trips

10 09 2014

IMG_0001_2

Without a constantly motivated and knowledgeable team, Horizon Innovations would not be as successful as it is today. To keep everyone driven and continuing up the ladder of success, Horizon Innovations sends it’s leaders out on business trips every other week. These business trips provide a way for our team to travel to new places and continue to intake new knowledge. Because every office and manager employs different styles, learning from different managers provides diverse techniques that our office can implement. We believe that with every travel opportunity our agents grow and become more well rounded, and ultimately more successful.

Not only does our office travel, but we have business trips from around the country that visit us as well. Horizon Innovations welcomes the leaders from local offices that travel here to learn from one of the top performing offices in the nation. These local offices include Orlando, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, Greenville, and Charleston. Managers from other offices located farther away from us also visit to gain knowledge. Kristina from Idaho, Jen from Washington, and Kyla and Jolene from Connecticut have all paid Horizon Innovations a visit within the last year.

Business trips are valuable opportunities that the leaders of Horizon Innovations take full advantage of. Not only do they get to travel to new and exciting places, but they also have the opportunity to learn and improve their skill sets. Additionally, Horizon Innovations attends large conferences and leaders meetings twice a year for the same reasons. In fact, this year’s company retreat will be held in Nassau, Bahamas. Feedback, knowledge, and networking are three main components of what we do, and having the chance to travel and gain new skills provides Horizon Innovations with an asset over the competition.
