Westmount Business & Mindset Coach For Entrepreneurs Work/Life Report Launched

A new report focusing on work/life balance has been launched by Lynda Hoffman, the professional business coach for entrepreneurs. She helps professionals to achieve better balance and improve energy and productivity.

Montréal, Canada – May 31, 2019 /NewsNetwork/

Lynda Hoffman, the business coach for entrepreneurs and mindset specialist, has launched a new report focusing on work/life balance. Anyone in Westmount, Montreal, and NDG looking to live in a more productive, satisfying way can get in touch for specialist coaching.

More information can be found at:

One of the things that separates Lynda Hoffman from other coaches in the area is that she’s been there and had challenges herself. She knows what it’s like to work high pressure jobs and suffer burnout, and has experienced a serious health crisis that took resourcefulness and creativity to overcome.

Despite feeling doubt and uncertainty, she managed to take charge of her life, regain her health, and develop the skills of resilience. Now she aims to serve others by understanding what holds them back and what it takes to make changes.

She explains that many people rush all the time when it comes to managing responsibilities at work and home. This leads to people speeding up while they wish they could slow down and looking for control when they really want freedom.

Despite everything that people do, it’s often the case that people can’t achieve a satisfying balance between their personal life and their work life.

Many people feel as though their life is happening to them, and they rush around with a sense of urgency. Others feel frustration and scattered thinking, and over-think all their decisions.

Being out of balance in this way can lead to a range of other factors, like anxiety, depression, a loss of enjoyment, and missing out on what makes life meaningful.

Lynda Hoffman states: “It may seem counterintuitive, but achieving work-life balance is not about time; it’s about values. Making choices that align with what matters to you leads to increased energy and a sense of purpose. When you prioritize your values and set clear boundaries around them, you can be confident that you are living with integrity. That is a win-win situation.”

Independent Bank Celebrates New HQ with New Name – Independent Financial

McKINNEY, TX / ACCESSWIRE / May 31, 2019 / Independent Bank, the McKinney-based financial services company with operations from the Gulf Coast of Texas to the Colorado Front Range, celebrated the opening of their new Corporate Headquarters and introduced their evolved corporate brand, Independent Financial.

Festivities included an open house, ribbon cutting and evening reception. Project partners, community members and city dignitaries celebrated the first national headquarters to open doors in the McKinney Corporate Center, Craig Ranch.

With the support of the City of McKinney and the McKinney Economic Development Corporation, the six-story, 165,000-sf facility boasts flexible, state-of-the-art workspace. Initially occupied by nearly 200 employees, the 10.4-acre parcel of land allows for a second phase of expansion. Building the new Corporate Headquarters closer to the Metroplex and DFW Airport supports recruiting and retention efforts. The building’s angular design maximizes the natural landscape including a mature greenbelt and water feature.

The project team included developer, KDC; the integrated design firm, SmithGroup and general contractor Rogers-O’Brien Construction Company, LTD, which will pursue LEED Silver certification. View Dynamic Glass, a highly efficient, intelligent electrochromic window system automatically adjusts tint levels across glass panels as lighting patterns shift throughout the day. This reduces solar heat gain and eliminates the need for supplemental shading devices while reducing energy consumption.

Independent Financial, Dare to ask, What If.

Reflective of the Bank’s diverse book of business, the new name, Independent Financial, and logo were revealed at Thursday’s evening reception.

“Independent Financial marks the beginning of a new chapter in our 30-plus year story,” explains President and CEO David Brooks. “By transitioning to Independent Financial, the organization is able to preserve the spirit and goodwill of our original name, while embracing opportunities to grow new markets and deliver a broadened array of products and services.”

The identity change will apply to all Independent Bank banking offices and business lines. The company expects the transition to Independent Financial to begin this summer in the Colorado market. The new brand will be introduced to additional markets throughout the Bank’s footprint through 2020.

Altos Hornos De México Assures Continuity Of Operations

MONCLOVA, COAHUILA / ACCESSWIRE / May 31, 2019 / Altos Hornos de México, S.A.B. de C.V., the largest integrated steel producer in Mexico (“AHMSA” or the “Company”), hereby informs certain events of the past week as detailed below:

On Monday, May 27, 2019, under instructions from the Mexican Ministry of Finance and Public Debt (SHCP) , the Mexican Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF) ordered that all AHMSA bank accounts be blocked and its funds frozen. AHMSA considers this action unprecedented, arbitrary and in violation of all its legal rights. The UIF, whose main purpose is to prevent and combat crimes related to financial operations from illicit sources, halted AHMSA’s operating continuity, thus impacting shareholders, over twenty thousand employees and thousands of suppliers, clients and third-parties, that jointly form the extensive industrial channels with which the Company has business relationships. This put at risk the economic stability of the State of Coahuila as well as other regions within its area of influence.

AHMSA activated all the legal defense mechanisms in its power to safeguard and uphold its rights. The Company was not informed of the arguments for this arbitrary action, apparently attributed to “unlawful actions” allegedly undertaken by the Company (the Company denies all and any responsibility). AHMSA is seeking to clarify before the UIF, the SHCP and any other unit any misconception that could have caused this act of authority that is in violation of the minimum legal requirements.

On Tuesday, May 28, 2019, Mr. Alonso Ancira Elizondo was apprehended in Spain. The Company activated all necessary protocols in order to ensure that operations continue normally and requested the UIF to release all of the Company’s bank accounts that were frozen.

At this time, AHMSA has not received any official information with regards to any specific cause for these actions; the Company considers that these actions are illegal and arbitrary, given that there has not been any evidence of any accusations, nor has there been charge brought against the company or any company official. Additionally, to date, there has been no inquiry by either agency to clarify any financial transaction by the Company or its management.

Today, Friday, May 31, 2019, some of the Company’s main bank accounts have been ordered to be released, thus permitting the Company to re-initiate financial operations with providers and clients, as well as ensuring payments for salaries and wages for its personnel of over twenty thousand workers. The order of release of these funds also ensures that normal productive plant operations could continue; these had not slowed down since the restrictions to the bank accounts were imposed.

Additionally, the Company wishes to inform all holders of payment rights arising out of its suspension of payments proceeding, that these proceeds are completely guaranteed at this time as they were deposited in a separate trust created specifically for this purpose, and that AHMSA has knowledge that the UIF also ordered the release of the bank accounts related to this trust, what will allow the trust to continue with all payments.

It is important to mention that during the past few days, production in the various units of both steel plants, as well as routine shipments to clients, were carried out normally.

AHMSA will continue to update the market as new information becomes available.


Altos Hornos de México S.A.B. de C.V., the largest integrated steel producer in Mexico (based on tons of liquid steel produced), has two steel plants located in Monclova, Coahuila, and operates its own iron ore and metallurgical coal mines. Its current nominal production capacity is more than 5.5 million tons of liquid steel per year, which is then transformed into a variety of finished products. Additionally, AHMSA operates steam coal mines in Mexico. It employs over 19,000 workers in steel plants, mines and services.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release may contain certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause AHMSA’s actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include but are not limited to regional, national or global economic, business, market and regulatory conditions and the following: (i) AHMSA’s ability to service its debt; (ii) competition and loss of market shares; (iii) changes in AHMSA’s relationships with customers and suppliers; (iv) increases in raw material costs or interruptions in supply; (v) declines in, and volatility affecting, global prices of steel; (vi) the existence or termination of free trade agreements, such as the North American Free Trade Agreement and foreign import duties and tariffs; (vii) foreign currency exchange fluctuations; (viii) the inherently dangerous nature of mining; (ix) work stoppages, strikes or other labor disputes; (x) changes in Mexican economic policy, as well as currency instability; (xi) inaccuracies in AHMSA’s estimates of economically recoverable coal reserves; and (xii) AHMSA’s dependence on certain raw materials.

Marcus Hiles: San Antonio Continues to Draw in Property Investors

DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / May 31, 2019 / San Antonio, Texas has been experiencing a steady increase in real estate value in both commercial and residential sectors from developers and buyers. Based on findings from the San Antonio Board of Realtors (SABOR), the area’s home sales grew 6% in the month of April alone. This comes as part of the latest trends hitting the San Antonio metro that are bringing more businesses and residents inbound. As reported in 2018, the city who is becoming known as one of Texas’ top locations, San Antonio has undergone industry growth across sectors like the technology space as more businesses look to Texas for opportunity.

According to the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas’ Business-Cycle Index report in April 2019 highlighted an accelerated annual rate of 4%, an increase over the area’s long-term rate on average of 3% average. The metro’s industry growth has helped set the strongest pace for the index since mid-2016 and represents the business environment that has been fueling higher employment rates and in-turn growing populations.

Coming from both instate areas and also out of state locations, residents in the San Antonio area are taking advantage of new job opportunities and affordable housing options. Both residential and rental property development is continuing to grow in the areas with developers like Western Rim Properties’ Marcus Hiles launch new projects that will offer more options to the area’s growing base. “With the strong growth potential of San Antonio to reach the same economic value of its Texas neighbors like Austin and Dallas, we are making moves to ensure our projects are established early. We are currently well invested in the area and are predicting the region’s popularity will continue to grow as other cities in the state become more saturated.” shares CEO and Founder of the leading Texas property firm Marcus Hiles.

The selection process of future property development projects requires looking at a few key indicators that help to evaluate the current and expected popularity and market value of the location. What San Antonio has shown in the last several years is its strength in stimulating a sustainable business community that is backed with residential amenities tailored to a diverse group of populations. Already with properties sprawled throughout Texas and the San Antonio area, Western rim will be launching another rental property under its popular The Mansions portfolio.

The growing interest through Texas continues to show in all of the state’s metros and now with Dallas and Austin in what can be seen as their prime, San Antonio is also getting ahead with an economic value that appeals to both residents and investors.

CTD Holdings Closes $7.4 Million Private Placement

ALACHUA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / May 31, 2019 / CTD Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: CTDH)(“CTD” or the “Company”), a clinical stage biotechnology company that develops cyclodextrin-based products for the treatment of disease with unmet medical need, today announced that it closed its previously announced private placement of securities with a group of institutional and accredited investors that included directors and officers of the Company. Investors in the private placement purchased a total of 29,770,000 million units, consisting of one share of common stock and one warrant, at a price per unit of $0.25, resulting in gross proceeds of approximately $7.4 million, before deducting placement agent fees and estimated offering expenses. The shares and warrants comprising each unit were issued separately, and the warrants are exercisable immediately upon issuance at an exercise price of $0.30 per share and expire on the 66 month anniversary of the issuance date.

ThinkEquity, a division of Fordham Financial Management, Inc., acted as sole placement agent for the offering.

“We are pleased to have raised additional capital for the development of our lead drug candidate, Trappsol® Cyclo™, for the Niemann-Pick type C (“NPC”) indication,” said N. Scott Fine, CTD’s Chairman of the Board and CEO. “We are excited as well that Company insiders have once again participated in this round, showing the commitment of our directors, officers and long-term investors in seeking market registration of Trappsol® Cyclo™ for the treatment of NPC. The proceeds of the private placement will allow us to continue our clinical programs.”

Trappsol® Cyclo™, CTD’s proprietary formulation of hydroxypropyl beta cyclodextrin, is currently being evaluated at clinical sites in the U.S., Israel, the UK, and Sweden for treatment of NPC, a rare genetic disease that causes neurologic, liver, lung and other organ dysfunction and that is ultimately fatal.

The securities sold in the private placement have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States in the absence of an effective registration statement or exemption from registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
