Missouri Broker/Owners Named 2014 Business People of the Year 
 
Broker/Owners Chuck and Kim Maher of Realty Executives Premiere in House Springs, Missouri were recently appointed "2014 Business People of the Year" by the city of Eureka.  The board of directors for the Eureka Chamber of Commerce bestowed the honor on the Mahers based on their involvement with the city, including sponsorships, volunteer work and participation in community events.

Chuck and Kim work tirelessly year-round volunteering at numerous city events, often involving many of the Executives in their brokerage as well.  The annual Toys for Tots collection, Eureka Chamber Golf Tournament and the Eureka Community Appreciation Day are among the many events the Mahers support.

"We were especially honored to receive this award considering our office in Eureka has only been open a little less than 2 years.  We were nominated last year also, but didn't qualify not having been open for a full year at that time," Kim Maher said.

An announcement was featured in the local Eureka newspaper and the Mahers were asked to appear in the Eureka Days Parade, a popular annual event with several thousand spectators taking part every year.

From all of us at Realty Executives International, congratulations Chuck and Kim Maher and thank you for your incredible dedication to the city of Eureka!

How to Curb Distraction During Family Time: No Cell Phone Day
 
Summer Travel Savings If you’re like jazz trombonist and music producer Delfeayo Marsalis, a member of the acclaimed Marsalis family from New Orleans, you appreciate the “old-school” ways of doing things.

For Marsalis, that means doing without automated music created and played at the push of a button, cooking without a microwave and not being too quick to replace a lost cell phone. “Some people ask, ‘How could you go weeks without replacing your phone?’ But for me, I look at it as a much needed vacation,” he says.

“At the same time, I’m like most other people: when I have a smart phone on me, I find myself checking it frequently.” While Marsalis isn’t anti-technology, he fondly recalls a time when more people interacted with others who are right in front of them, rather than staring at a gadget in their hand – especially when it comes to family. As a father of a young teenager, he offers the following tips for improving quality time by doing without the ubiquity of cell phones.

  • Consider a “No Cell Phone Day.” In fact, that’s the name of his new children’s book about a tech-entrenched father who spends a happy birthday exploring New Orleans with his daughter – without his cell phone. A monthly “no cell phone day” allows you to fully engage with the people around you, whether they’re your kids, your parents, or your friends. Without the distractions of work and spam email, you can have meaningful conversations and simply spend time laughing with the people you love. You’ll have those memories to cherish for a long time to come. If you really want to connect with yourself and loved ones, plan on a regular No Cell Phone Day.

  • Play dates that don’t require cell phones. When Marsalis takes his 13-year-old daughter and her cousins out for a fun day out at the mall, followed by a movie and dinner, he makes a deal with them to leave their phones at home. “We’re all together on these occasions, so there’s no concern for safety, and it would be sad to go through all the trouble of spending the day together while, half of the time, they’re preoccupied with their phones,” he says. “In addition to the occasional outing, we set aside time at home when we can’t use cell phones.”

  • Make dinner time a cell phone-free zone. While food is especially important to any self-respecting son or daughter, sitting down to eat together is a sacred time for every family. Children and adults alike face significant stress and pressures every day in the world outside the home. Closing the doors on that world and coming together for an hour each evening to relax and refresh in the comparative safety of those who most love us is essential to our well-being.

  • Play “What Do I Know without My Cell Phone?” Research suggests cell phones are compromising the short-term memory of children. More and more of us – children and adults alike – rely on our smart phones, rather than our memories, to retrieve information. Exercising our brains with trivia, math and other cognitive games can help all of us stay mentally sharp.

  • Most importantly – don’t be afraid to be bored! Life doesn’t have to be a sci-fi movie all of the time. Ask your child to reflect on their greatest memories to date; chances are 0 percent of the content of those memories will involve cell phones.
