How To Become Successful In Life and In Business

We spend our whole lives searching for the perfect house, the perfect relationship, the perfect job, that we forget about the most important part of life… living. Living in the moment, experiencing the present, understanding our purpose is already within us, but finding that which we already hold in our hearts. This seems like a pretty easy concept, right? Unfortunately, to become successful in life and in business, this is one of the hardest ideals to learn. Success is first created in our mind, and then followed by our footsteps.  The real search should be for our true passion, because once that is found; everything else will begin to follow. 

Tony Robin's famous quote on success is, “ The path to success is to take massive determined action.” We can agree that success in both life and business will not happen if we don’t make strides in the right direction, but can we also agree that happiness may not be present if we don’t first find it within ourselves? How do we do that? 

1.    We get dirty. We open ourselves to the things in life that are holding us back from creating what we were made to do. We face our fears. Maybe our lack of success comes from the fear of failure, if this is the case, we must first find healing within.

2.    We love. We forgive not only the people around us, but ourselves. We stop judging, condemning, and harboring unresolved feelings and spend time finding what makes us, and the people around us truly happy. 

3.    We communicate. We pray, meditate, write, journal, or whatever is in your practice, to establish healing and direction. This healing may not just be centered on you, but everyone around you, including co-workers, friends, family, and anyone else that crosses your path. 

4.    We have faith. We understand that if we are living and working based on our life’s passion, success will soon follow. 

I posted this picture of my business partner and I to not only represent the passion we have behind our company, but to help enlighten more souls. We are in this giant bathtub cleaning life’s most soulful animal, yet in a sense we are cleansing ourselves.  We are working as a team, learning new cultures, and not only enjoying the journey of life, but the ride. At Flood Risk America and Flood Risk Canada, we are here to keep you dry, not only from flooding, but from life’s downpour. Let us help you secure your passion.

Why Golf Course Owners are Extremely Happy

Golf is a prestigious sport loved by many people across the world. With the contributing factors of its relaxing atmosphere, beautiful courses, perfectly set grass, and small bodies of water, golf is a sport that can heavily rely on the consequences of Mother Nature. If a golf course floods, golfers have to choose another course to play and in return, golf course owners lose money and potential clients.

“Golf course owners contacted us regarding the inability to obtain flood insurance on their greens and bunkers. They explained the cost of damages they were facing regarding flooding damages, and what could be done to prevent them, so we came up with a solution,” said Stephen Gill, CEO of Flood Risk America & Flood Risk Canada. 

Flood Risk America and Flood Risk Canada are sister companies that specialize in flood assessment and mitigation techniques. Stephen Gill, along with his business partner, Tiffany Largey were determined to find a solution to keep golf courses from flooding, golf course owners happy, and golfers still playing their beloved sport. 

  • They created a detailed assessment of every green and bunker, including the clubhouse and any other structure lying within the perimeters of each course. From this flood risk assessment, they found which areas would have the potential risk of flooding and then devised an individualized flood plan for each golf course.

“We share the same type of excitement people acquire when they play golf and feel that we have hit our hole-in-one with this concept. We are truly excited to help many golf course owners maintain their business and golfers to continue improving their game,” Tiffany Largey, Partner and COO. 

We have hit our ‘hole- in- one’ with this concept.

Railroad Safety

The Federal Railroad Administration highlights the importance of safety within the railroad industry. Their mission focuses on efficiency, reliability, and protection of passengers, cargo, and railways.

Flood Risk America & Flood Risk Canada is proposing a solution to all Railroad companies to decrease the amount of derailments, potential losses, and injury. What if we were to tell you that we could not only help you maintain a safe and efficient transportation system, but we could potentially save you millions of dollars? With our extensive flood prevention and mitigation products, new services, and detailed flood risk assessments, we can positively change the preventable fatalities, derailments, and outward cost of the rail industry.

To prove our theories related to cost analysis, we asked a credible source within the United States insurance industry to give us an estimate on how much Flood insurance can potentially cost. The answer we received was appalling. When a track is within a flood zone, the deductible can be up to $5,000,000 and the sublimit is lower. When the track is outside of a flood zone, the deductible is $250,000 and your sublimit is much higher. After hearing this information, my partner and I came together and made it our utmost goal to do whatever it takes to not only help our clients achieve their highest amount of safety, but to also save them money in the process.

At Flood Risk America and Flood Risk Canada we are proud to say that we honor both our clients and their investments. We work diligently to protect and prevent losses, while creating a trustworthy and sustainable relationship. We look forward to becoming your solution.

Flood Risk America Helps Victims of Hurricane Mathew With FEMA Grant and Mitigation Money

Hurricane Matthew had devastating effects across the Atlantic coast. As a result of this catastrophic event, many businesses have been closed down due to flooding, not only leaving many people out of work, but also billions of dollars in reconstruction value. 

“We are deeply sorry for the losses that anyone has faced during Hurricane Matthew and we want to do whatever we can to help property/business owners understand their available options, preventing this from happening in the future,” said Stephen Gill, CEO of Flood Risk America. 

Currently, FEMA administers three programs that provide funding for eligible mitigation planning and projects that reduce disaster losses and protect life and property from future disaster damages. The three programs are the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), the Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Program, and the Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Program.

"We want to do whatever we can to help property/business owners understand their available options, preventing this from happening in the future,” Stephen Gill, CEO Flood Risk America 

Flood Risk America is ready to help with the FEMA Grant and Mitigation assistance. Flood Risk America will review your property’s coverage for free and determine which preventative measures will reduce potential damages and avoid any major flood loss. 

Flooding has caused significant damage and disruption, which will only increase in frequency and magnitude in the future. “Our job is to keep you and your property protected,” said Stephen Gill.

Elevator Flooding - How to Prevent It?

Flooding to any building can cause extensive damage, but elevators tend to be the most susceptible because the pits of the elevators are usually one of the lowest points in a building, giving rise to floodwaters. To address this issue, Flood Risk America launched a three-step elevator and control room flood prevention program.
