The 18 Life Lessons Learned on Mount Kilimanjaro is READY!

August 14th, 2014

Robby LeBlanc on Top of Mount Kilimanjaro DVD CoverThis film project, "The 18 Life Lessons Learned on Mount Kilimanjaro"  has been in the works for almost 2 years is FINISHED!

Two months after returning from Africa and Kilimanjaro I was in a car accident and it set me back about 1 year. Then I finally started on it again, almost finished it, then my honey Vickie got ill. Just like climbing Kilimanjaro, it has taken persistence to finish this project.

This video was intended to be a gift for all my Kilimanjaro Sponsors. I wanted to be able to show them what my experience in Africa was like. And YES, all my SPONSORS will be getting their copy shortly. Then, in the process of editing this project, and showing a rough cut for a few audiences, they asked if they could purchase a copy. So here it is !!!

Climbing Kilimanjaro was a LIFE CHANGING experience. I am so GRATEFUL for Werner Berger, for INSPIRING ME to THINK and DREAM BIGGER! A man truly of service, has inspired so many and now I can say, I am among those that climbed with him!

Thank you Werner for what you do and all that you have done it for! You Are AWESOMENESS in MOTION!

Keep Being Brilliant!
Robby LeBlanc

Goodbye Robin Williams – The Pain Behind The Smile

August 12th, 2014

RIP Robin Williams - LasVegasNewsBlog.comRobin Williams, Academy Award-winning Actor and Grammy Award Comedian, Died Today, August 11, 2014 of Apparent Suicide.

The following content between the dotted lines were written by a very good friend. I saw her post about Robin Williams on FACEBOOK and asked if I could repost here on LasVegasNewsBlog.
Written by Elizabeth Taher Kovic
It's always so jarring when someone like Robin Williams dies. Particularly because like many of my peers, we felt like we almost knew him. His familiarity was like one of the kids you went to high school with. The one that was ways doing something when the teacher's back was turned. The one that said everything cleverly. All the things you thought, that flew out of his mouth so brilliantly.

Probably the one who went home at night and cried in the darkness. The one who never, ever let his guard down. The one who hid behind the funny man mask. Busy parading around with a clown nose and a lampshade hat. Not sure which demons he was fighting. We all have our share. His brand of humor was delicious, like Shakespeare's Puck. A mischievous imp who gets the love in the end.

I am so saddened to see him go. He gave his audiences so many gifts. Rip Robin Williams.  Read the rest of this entry »

I've been thinking about doing a weekly Motivational Video Message for quite some time. And recently, I said, "NOW IS THE TIME!"

Every Monday I will be posting a MOTIVATOR MONDAY Message. They will be short, sweet and too the point.

My goal is to keep these Monday Messages under 1 minute. The idea here is not to give a long MOTIVATIONAL Speech/Training, rather a short single message that you can consume quickly and can make a small impact on your thoughts and attitude.


PLEASE Spread the word and Leave a Comment!

Until Next Week...

Keep Being Brilliant,
Robby LeBlanc



Vickies Vertigo is Gone!

June 26th, 2014

Brain Werner and VickieWhat is VERTIGO? Vertigo is a sensation of spinning, whirling and loss of balance. One often feels sick to their stomach when a vertigo event occurs.

Vickie Pieper’s Vertigo Story…
As you may remember,  on March 3, 2014 I took Vickie Pieper to QuickCare in Las Vegas because we thought she had a concussion due to bumping her head on a shelf. It swelled up like a golf ball. Plus, she was extremely dizzy and could not keep her balance.The doctor at QuickCare said Vickie needed to go the the emergency room immediately due to the severity of the bump.

 Turns out she did indeed have a severe concussion and a bad case of “VERTiGO”. The hospital tried treating the vertigo to no avail. Then we heard about Brian Werner from “FYZICAL Therapy & Balance in Henderson, Nevada. In April, Vickie had 3 session with them. All was well.

Last week, out of the blue, without warning, the VERTIGO returned. Vickie struggled for 6 days. Then Brian recommended his last resort, The Epily Chair. After one session the VERTIGO was GONE! I saw this with my own eyes. The session in the chair was rough on Vickie, then watching the monitor with Brain Werner, we saw the vertigo STOPPED! No more spinning or dizziness! It was truly amazing.

Watch the video below to see the HEALING in progress. Vickie left the FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Center grateful that there was a solution for her dizziness & balance problem. Brian said, she can now go dancing!

 For more information about Vertigo and the treatment, give them a call. They have a slogan...
