3.16.17    Peter Stone Will Get You Motivated in “Stepping Up & Step Out”- A New Series

Stepping Up & Step Out in 2017 ~ A year for Change

Where is 2017 going? According to local consultant, author, business veteran, seafarer, gemologist, photographer and Certified High Performance Coach Peter Stone, wherever you want it to. In his Cape Ann TV video and podcast series, Stepping Up & Step Out in 2017, Peter discusses the struggles of pursuing goals, strategies to overcome challenges, and the Net Effect of making small improvements to your life.

Starting with the most common New Year’s resolutions, Peter offers a refreshing perspective for breaking bad habits, increasing focus, and simply achieving more. At its core, Stepping Up & Step Out emphasizes mind management. With positive thinking and persistence, health, happiness, and financial stability are attainable.

“We are here to learn what we are made of, to dig deep and make ourselves—and our world—better than when we found them.”

This idea permeates into his business, Peter Stone Jewelry, which specializes in handcrafted sterling silver and gold jewelry designed from passion and spirit. But even his company has had its challenges and growing pains. Persistence, integrity, and open minds have kept Peter Stone Jewelry in business for over 30 years.

Peter grew up in Manchester-by-the-Sea, worked lobster fishing inshore and off, holds a 100-ton captains license along with a chief engineer’s unlimited horsepower steam and motor license. Today he’s downsized to a rowing shell and can be found off Cape Ann in his jet ski throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall months.

“Life is to be experienced, not endured.” Attitude and word choice are essential to Stepping Up & Step Out, which identifies effective mindsets and habits adopted by Peter and others to help you overcome challenges and start living your dreams.

You can watch the show locally in Gloucester and surrounding towns on channel 12, or find recorded sessions online at
