Welcome Stephen Borrell with Your Life Changes to the Colonial Heights Chamber.
Welcome to Your Life Changes! No matter what is happening to you, your life changes. Sometimes we choose to make the changes and other times circumstances force us to change. Either way, we never stay the same for long.
A great opportunity lies in our ability to make changes we want. Each and every day, we have the chance to move in a direction we choose to go and reach for new goals.
Your Life Changes is here to help you reach the important goals you want to achieve. We do this through the use of hypnosis. By using the tremendous power of your mind, we will guide you toward making your actions match the goals you have chosen. Action follows thought and since these two forces work together, you will reach your goals.
So if you are considering making changes, here are a few ways we can help you succeed:

Welcome LongHorn Steak house to the Colonial Heights Chamber.
Born of fire, tested by ice, confirmed by legions of loyal guests each day, LongHorn Steakhouse ®  has grown to become the undisputed home for great steak done right. Founded in 1981 in Atlanta, Georgia, the restaurant began with one man's passion for perfect steak but had very few guests to convince. Then a freak snowstorm hit Atlanta in 1982, stranding motorists and drawing them to one of the only hospitable places available - a restaurant then called LongHorn Steaks Restaurant & Saloon. Tales of expertly grilled steaks soon spread like wildfire, and the legend of LongHorn was born.
Welcome Staples to the Colonial Heights Chamber.
Providing products to the people who want to make more happen is what we do. But who we are is something much more important. Over the past 25+ years, we’ve worked hard to build a powerful brand that people connect with, trust and believe in.
In our earlier days, we let customers know  “Yeah, we’ve got that.”  They could feel confident that whatever office supplies they needed, they could find at Staples. In the early 2000s, a new tagline was introduced:  that was easy . These three simple words set us apart from competition and signified that we were about more than just selection; we were also about the easiest shopping experience possible.
And now? We live in a ridiculously busy world in which everyone is trying to do more — whether it’s starting a business, striving to be the world’s best teacher or checking off a mile-long to-do list. While easy is still a big part of who we are, our customers need more than just an easy experience and the usual office supplies to make their dreams a reality. They need Staples to be there with every product their businesses need to succeed, so they can  make more happen .
