Three Common Money-Wasters

Robert Gill is the managing director for Epic Wealth Management, LLC, located in Tinton Falls, New Jersey. Working with both businesses and individuals, Robert Gill throughout his career has helped acquire over 300 client portfolios, developing strategies to help those clients achieve financial security. His company is an affiliate of Chelsea Financial Services.

One of the easiest and most obvious ways to start saving toward financial security is simply to waste less money, but it is often easier said than done. Consider eliminating these three money-wasters from your budget – or at least push for a better deal on what you want.

1. The gourmet coffee shop - If you are a regular coffee drinker, the price of your daily premium coffee adds up, and that is assuming all you get is coffee, let alone a $4 bagel or $6 pastry. You do not even need to give up your coffee, just the premium price tag. Brew your coffee at home and save the money you would otherwise spend on this daily money-waster. 

2. Bottled water – This is not the only source of drinkable water. Even if you live in an area where the tap water is not safe for drinking, you could buy a reusable filtration system and washable bottle. Both of these investments will eventually pay for themselves and start saving you the money you once spent on bottled water. 

3. Cable television, Internet, and phone - Companies that provide these services often offer special discounts at first, but then raise the price after the promotional period. Sometimes, though, all you need to do to get your bill lowered is ask. Don’t be afraid to frame it as though you cannot afford the current service. Your provider might be willing to help in the face of potentially losing a customer.

Three Workouts to Improve Your Boxing Game

At Epic Wealth Management in New Jersey, Robert Gill helps his clients achieve their unique financial goals for their families and businesses. When he finds time away form his professional duties and charitable work throughout New Jersey, Robert Gill pursues boxing and fitness.

Boxing in the ring is roughly 20 percent aerobic and 80 percent anaerobic. The discipline demands both stamina and agility, requiring good fighters to be well-rounded athletes. To improve your boxing skills, consider adding one or more of these intense non-boxing exercises to your training regimen.

1. Power lifting with barbells – While focusing on proper form to avoid injuries, add heavy deadlifts, squats, and bench press sets to your workout routine. These three big exercises will improve strength and stability in your legs, glutes, core, chest, and arms.

2. Variations on jumping rope – To improve footwork and agility, practice double unders, criss-crosses, and other challenging styles of jumping rope.

3. High intensity cardiovascular intervals – Whether you favor the treadmill, the stationary bike, or other cardio machines, add intense intervals to your training. Move at your normal pace for one minute, then sprint for 15 to 20 seconds. Repeat these intervals as many times as you are able, gradually working up to sessions of approximately 12 intervals.

Clara Maass Brings Invaluable Health Services to Seniors' Doorsteps

Robert Gill, New Jersey business owner, serves as president of Epic Wealth Management. Alongside his work in the financial sector, Robert Gill sits on the board of trustees for New Jersey's Clara Maass Medical Center.

Clara Maass Medical Center created the Wellness Assessment Van for Elders (WAVE) program to bring preventative health services to seniors in their own communities.

Clara Maass and WAVE bring physicians and nurses directly to seniors in their community groups and private residences. Patients receive an examination, appropriate tests, and relevant wellness information to help them stay healthy. As part of a regular healthcare routine, these preventative services help seniors live better, longer.

If you live in New Jersey, it is easy to bring WAVE to your community center or local seniors group. To get in touch with WAVE, call 973-450-2528.

Alongside his demanding role in the financial world, Robert Gill supports education in New Jersey through generous donations to the state’s best schools.

Though it is a Jesuit school, Saint Peter’s Prep welcomes young men from a variety of backgrounds, provided they meet the school’s rigorous academic requirements. To be considered for admission, incoming freshmen must first complete the COOP exam, administered by the local Archdiocese. Students must also furnish an official academic transcript, which should provide grades for at least the sixth and seventh grades as well as the first term of their current school year.

Incoming freshmen must also furnish at least one teacher recommendation form. Saint Peter’s uses these evaluations to judge the character and scholastic aptitude of each potential student. Once these materials are in order, students will also need to complete the official application and accompanying personal essay.

Robert Gill’s Views on Leadership and Motivation

Robert Gill, the managing director of Epic Wealth Management in Tinton Falls, New Jersey, believes in having a strong team to serve the firm’s clients. In a recent panel discussion, Robert Gill described his process for motivating financial professionals.

Gill cited as inspirational leaders the family of Bob Hurley, Sr., a legendary high school basketball coach in New Jersey, whose sons Bobby Jr. and Danny were great basketball players in high school and then went on to successful careers playing and coaching in the NBA and the NCAA, respectively. The family’s experience demonstrated the value of teamwork and effort, values reflected in Gill’s training philosophy.

He makes certain that each person he works with understands the necessity of hard work and a passion for professionalism and that success does not arrive overnight. Gill looks for the kind of people who dream of great success. Not every person has this desire, nor can they be made to have it. But some people do find their way to it, and they succeed.

The Health Benefits of Boxing Workouts

New Jersey financial executive Robert Gill serves as the president of Epic Wealth Management, an independent brokerage that manages more than 800 client portfolios. In his free time, Robert Gill enjoys training at boxing gyms in the New Jersey area.

As a competitive sport, boxing requires a high level of strength, speed, endurance, agility, and power. Boxing workouts incorporate many of these same attributes, producing a number of health benefits for those who do them, whether they box or not.

Perhaps most notably, boxing workouts help participants improve their cardiovascular health. The footwork and punching involved in boxing workouts enable participants to keep their heart rate elevated over the course of the workout, thereby strengthening the heart and lungs. In addition, many people find boxing workouts more engaging than running on a treadmill or riding a stationary bike.

From a strength perspective, punching and kicking large bags engages muscles in the upper and lower body, as well as the core. Boxing workouts typically incorporate challenging circuit training as well, often including strength-building exercises such as squats, pushups, crunches, and medicine ball work.
