Remember Remember the 5th of September – LABOR DAY and ProPublica is Hiring an Engagement Reporter

OH LOOK! “WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW

Adding to the Workers’ Compensation National Discussion, shall we?

Labor Day: What it Means

“Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”

“ProPublica is Hiring an Engagement Reporter”

“Assignment: Give us a few thoughts on how you would have gone about re-imagining and executing a project we did last year about the demolition of worker’s comp protections around the country.  Again, how could we have connected to the people actually impacted by the story, and how could they have contributed to the project?”

“Here’s that [AWARD WINNING AND INDUSTRY SHAKING] investigation:

The demolition of worker’s comp protections

APPLY?   https://www.propublica.org/atpropublica/item/propublica-is-hiring-an-engagement-reporter/ via @propublica

“We are hiring an engagement reporter to work on investigative projects in collaboration with traditional reporters throughout the full life-cycle of projects. That means you’ll be involved from the very beginning of story conception to think about what communities and audiences we need to reach and how we reach them, all the way through to story publication and beyond. You’ll help find and reach an audience for the story, and most importantly you’ll be responsible for conceiving and executing a plan to pull our readers into the reporting of the story itself….”

“…So what exactly are we talking about? Take a look at a project we’ve been doing about Vietnam vets exposed to Agent Orange. [*] Unlike traditional investigations, we didn’t start with a story. We announced that we were doing an investigation with a callout to the community. We asked vets to tell us their stories, and we’ve now heard from more than 5,800 of them. This community has fueled our reporting, and it’s already getting results.”

“We also plan to do more projects where we work openly with and help foster communities of journalists.”

[*] Speaking of Veterans and Agent Orange, might be wise for ProPublica to include this information, too.

BRAVO PROPUBLICA!!!   THANK YOU!!!

IS NPR WORKING WITH YOU ON THIS NEW GIG?!

Encore time for #WorkersCompensation continued investigations of further INSULTS TO INJURIES and The Demolition of Workers’ Comp,  including what happens post settlement … to 8.9 million Americans on #SSA disability…?  And who knows how many millions denied SSA disability –more than 40 million more?

social-security-follow-the-money-trail

SIDE BAR:  And why would a congressional representative suggest taking constituent complaints to legal aid vs DOJ and fail to get involved and get straight answers to a simply inquiry for a statement of income used by SSA to mis-calculate retro-active pay benefits for over 15 months, with wildly fluctuating misrepresentation of monies due vs overpaid from an initial award amount of $25,591 to false allegations of overpayments calculated multiple times, ranging from the first being $27,078.00 sliding down to low $20k’s, to $11,767, then $9,964, then $5,555.10, then $22,869, then $21,066.20 ad infinitum.

Multiple Illegal interruptions and further threats of interruptions of benefits during “appeals” process were corrected, but the benefits due, when paid from arrears, WE ALSO THEN ADDED TO THE MIS-CALCULATION AMOUNT OF OVER-PAYMENT.  Figure that one out.  Do they drug test at SSA?    

Those SSA miscalculations also subject the Injured Worker to litigation from the Long Term Disability carrier, based on the initial retro-pay award, with the LTD demands for repayment of approximately $22,000, which they boast “the Courts routinely find in our favor.”  All these crazy numbers are based on SSA falsely stating that income from date of injury paid by the WC carrier was $4,177.00 —-  They won’t prove it and they simply ignore repeatedly provided evidence of the actual WC and EDD payments.  MAGIC MATH– SSA MAKES THINGS UP WITH YOUR TAX DOLLARS….

The refusal of SSA to even provide such information in a Congressional inquiry is very suspicious, and the months and months of clear obfuscation of facts and obstruction of justice are really sad, wouldn’t you agree?  This is another known national dilemma, scandal and shame…!!   SSA was called out for paying Nazi War criminals over 20 million dollars, illegally, last year.  Apparently, their practices of MAGIC MATH, with a splash of ‘abracadabra’ with facts and evidence, are known to most anybody touched by THAT system.

Word from the Ten Congressional Representatives who signed the October 2015 letter is hopefully anticipated soon, as they each received a copy of case evidence in the issue references above.  Acting SSA Commissioner has also received a complete package, and certain Media influencers have also been provided with copies of same.  It’s been less than 30 days… Word is expected soon.  Hopefully, a good word of correction and accuracy so that piece can be settled and closed.  [See earlier blogs for more details if SSA is on your bucket list of fixes needed.]

Another Injured Worker recently connected with an apparently “similar story” that has been being fought for over 12 years.

“SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG WITH THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION –  ISN’T IT?”

O SAY CAN YOU SEE, #AMERICANS?!?

AUSTRALIANS, CANADIAN, UK and other  INJURED WORKERS FACE VERY SIMILAR LIFE-THREATENING and DESTROYING INSULTS AND INJURIES that Americans face with the current Workers’ Compensation and Disability mega billion dollar PROFITS BEFORE LIVES systems, agencies and carriers….WITHOUT REPRESENTATION by enough elected officials.

How about investigations into the plights and gruesome illness and death of America’s #Nuclear Workers?   Relate them to the plights and gruesome illness and deaths, with quite little ‘plausible deniability,’  of Fukushima’s nuclear workers and relate that to the issues of Your Radiation This Week, Americans.  “Radiation in the US Soars”

 

Count – 44 Cities Reporting Radiation Above 1,000 CPM

Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM [4]

Bob Nichols Said WHAT About Your Radiation This Week!?!Your Radiation This Week

 

In addition to the 10 Congressional representatives who signed the letter of October 2015,  incited by INSULT TO INJURY investigative reports  to the Department of Labor about the state of Workers’ Compensation and the offer to provide law enforcement and protection, if needed, was quite a gift to the American people, but follow up is absolutely required.

There is also a small group of Congressional representatives who are also concerned and outraged about the treatment of sick Nuclear Workers in the USA, and denials of medical care and benefits.  Time to get these Congressional representatives talking together and working with one another, and also taking some hard looks into the Social Security Administrations mis-handling of millions of claims and dollars, causing further egregious harm to America’s class.

For a little more perspective from and about some citizens IMPACTED by the need for The Demolition of Workers’ Compensation:

Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains – list of posts since Summer 2013  [update: The parties in the initial WorkComp case “reached resolution subject to confidentiality agreement” in less than 5 years, without benefit of competent legal counsel and other significant obstacles, by winter 2015.  The blog now addresses more national and international issues, and is not case-specific.

My WorkComp Coach is a natural result of an in pro per/in pro se (unrepresented)  Injured Worker Survivor’s need to GIVE BACK to the Injured Worker Community to share strategies and tactics to survive and escape the WorkComp system of PROFITS BEFORE LIVES.

Personal rebranding efforts are somewhat hindered by the magnitude and reach of the insurance industry propaganda machinery, and it’s approximately “Top 22 Blogger” mouth-pieces skewing public opinions in further efforts to protect profits and recover from the initial investigative reports by ProPublica and NPR.

“Something is terribly wrong with Worker’s Compensation – isn’t it?”

I would love to apply for the position at ProPublica, but alas, as a Survivor of Workers’ Compensation, the doctors say I can never work again, due to the challenges of the traumatic brain injury sustained at work in 2012, same year as Hillary. I study online business and education practices in hopes to prove those doctors wrong!!!  So far, not so good, but I keep trying!   My, what a difference private doctors vs. workcomp doctors can make in recovery outcomes, huh?

How many injured American workers may have had better and faster outcomes if WorkComp did not exist, but employee benefits with a State disability as ‘first responders’ was employed as a first line of defense against permanent disabilities, and having WorkComp insurance as a secondary insurer, in the event of catastrophic and irreparable injuries??  WorkComp is NOT an employee benefit.  ANYWHERE.

My blogging is a public service activity.  I can do more a la Arianna Huffington’s ideas that include the importance of NAPPING AT WORK.

(Arianna didn’t really say that Three Mile Island and Chernobyl Nuclear Disasters were due to ‘sleep deprivation’ as I read in Success magazine, did she?  “Fatigue –related.”  [WTH!!!]

 

Arianna Huffington Leads the Charge for Well-Being in the … – Success

“Mar 10, 2015 – It’s fitting, then, that Arianna Huffington’s latest book is a discourse on achievement and health. … and the nuclear accidents at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl? … According to Harvard Medical School, sleep deprivation costs U.S. … Time magazine had just named her one of the 100 most influential people …”

“…What we overlook is the staggering toll all that nonstop hustle takes on us. That commuter train derailment that killed four and injured more than 60 outside New York City in 2013? It was caused by an engineer who nodded off at the wheel. The Exxon Valdez oil spill, the Challenger space shuttle disaster, and the nuclear accidents at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl? All fatigue-related…”
SLEEP DEPRIVATION AND NUCLEAR MELTDOWNS WHATFukushima not a leak Meltdowns

Heck, if Hillary can run for President with suspected Brain Injury, Radiation poisoning and Seizures,  maybe I actually could apply for the ProPublica Engagement Reporter position….  if they could make an ADA accommodation and let me be of some help …. VIRTUALLY, FROM THE LEFT COAST…. High Desert, anyway.

I would love to see continuing investigations into the national hyper-corruption issues of Workers Compensation.  2015 reports were stellar, but just the tip of the iceberg.  More importantly is to find ways to get people quickly out of the system, and on to real doctors and medical care, healing and recovery and the path to return to work.

I would also love to some immediate investigations of the appearance of serious mis-deeds by the Social Security Administration when it comes to benefits for Injured Workers.  In most cases, MAKING STUFF UP and refusing to correct errors in income calculations, in order to deny benefits to injured workers and deploy profits to who knows whom,  is generally referred to with the f-word.  FRAUD and MALFEASANCE.   Injured Workers call it “MAGIC MATH” of Social Security; SSA workers call it ‘too confusing and hard’ and apparently Congressional Representatives call it ‘too hot to touch.’    Hmmmmm.

I would would also like to see that small group of “22 Top Bloggers” held accountable for speaking the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.  If a CIVIL RIGHTS AND HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION is required to facilitate that, then, Congress knows what they must do.

MEANWHILE, A VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE FACEBOOK INJURED WORKER KAMPS AND GHETTOS is being organized for the LinkedIn interested parties, and other parties apparently not in the know about the atrocities of America’s WorkComp programs.  Watch for it.  It was derailed temporarily while some Injured Workers were under national ‘attack’ by some industry spokes people starting in May.  It seems to have simmered down, or is in another calm before another storm.

TBI MEANWHILE IN AMERICA

Maybe I COULD provide some ideas to the ProPublica team as they come together? Maybe they will just read my blogs and get some ideas; a few industry training department people have been regular views on LinkedIn and a few are subscribers.  ‘STREET TALK’ they prefer to call hyperbole or ‘angry injured workers with an ax to grind’ rather than deal with the harsh realities of a predatory and dangerous system politely called WORKERS COMPENSATION.

I’m getting a little professional help to update and “rebrand” to better represent “The New Me” [post TBI]  my social media presence, so, we’ll see what happens between now and the deadline, SEPTEMBER 5, 2016 — LABOR DAY IN THE USA.

While the late David DePaolo said this about me in his article Work Comp and Baseball (October 2, 2014)

“These cases, though, are real. There are real people behind these cases. People get hurt. People get toyed with. People don’t get what is needed, what is promised in the Grand Bargain, and set aside as disturbed and having unrealistic expectations.

Some contact me because of this blog, seeking answers, help and remedies.

I have met some – like Linda Ayers. I won’t get into Linda’s case here – that’s not the point.

Linda is vocal, like a few other injured workers. She has a blog, she is active in social media, she posts comments to this blog.

And she probably drives the defense crazy as she is prolifically passionate about making sure the system works for her and for other injured workers.

It’s easy to dismiss Linda’s activities as the rantings of an unstable person, but she is not an unstable person. She is a person who’s case spiraled out of control from the beginning, and we know that the early stages of a claim are the most critical…”

In 2015, at the commencement of the national diatribes attacking Injured Workers, in ASSUME RESPONSIBLITY by David, we were called  “Vociferous Militants” and just complainers, amongst other choice words.

Draft one of that blog, ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY,  actually was sent to me as a personal email, and it was not till a while later that I realized that many of the several little blue links linked directly to my little blogs!   Was he really trying to tell YOU something by linking to MY BLOGS?

However, there’s a vociferous militant minority of the injured worker population who have made it their mission to inform the world of the injustices imparted on them by “the system” and all its nefarious participants.


They have ridiculed most all work comp sectors named above, but have spared me for the most part. 

No apparent respect for the fact that I survived and that the parties in my personal case ‘reached resolution’ miraculously in less than 5 years, that even wrapped up with a nice ‘best wishes’ note from one of the defense attorneys involved.  David’s death leaves a gap in the industry discussions about the Pro’s, Cons and WorkCompsters of the Industry.  The fight for his role as ‘Top Dog’ is… pitiful to watch.  David actually care about Injured Workers and let his readers know that, and he walked a very fine line.  The other ‘top bloggers’ with just a very exceptions… not so much.

Earlier this year there was what appeared to be a full scale, organized national disparaging  attack on a small segment of the vocal Injured Workers in the USA, very few who blog.  It’s unclear who directed it, but Injured Workers have their suspicions.  Industry peeps probably know for sure.  The above blogs were included in several of the diatribes, directly and indirectly.

IF YOU KNOW SOME PEOPLE WHO MIGHT BE A PERFECT FIT FOR THAT PRO-PUBLICA POSITION, LET THEM KNOW.  IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S IN NEW YORK CITY…..   I lived there in a ‘former life’ on 72nd between Park and Madison, working as a secretary to a powerful … ‘real estate mogul.’

Leading experts on brain injury encourage TBI Survivors to ‘EMBRACE THE NEW YOU.’

The “new me” would never trade rural living today for anything like NYC and all it’s nuke plants nearby… because ALL NUCLEAR REACTORS LEAK ALL OF THE TIME.

Stop the Workers’ Compensation SOBs and WOE

 

Can you also be a little hard to “get” if their politics lean either side of center, if they are a basic “Difficult Person,” a mysoginyst, a basic WorkCompster, or even just a common psychopath?

Professional friends said, early on, “Get out of WorkComp by any means necessary, it will kill you.”

They had no clues about how.  Professional friends now still say, “Keep screaming, Linda, somebody’s got to do it!”

The latest blog at Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains might be of interest:

Workers’ Compensation SOBs and Global WOE from Australia Canada and USA

‘Cognitive dissonance’ often requires people to make victims of crimes wrong or a villain or a villain-ette, or to quote the late David DePaolo, of WorkComp Central from  Assume Responsibility, a “Vociferous Militant.”

American Injured Workers were unable to organize to fight the series of national attacks, diatribes and propaganda launch attempting to make Injured Workers the wrong-doers.  The industry alerted all in February to expect the propaganda launch in May.  Some joined it.  How sad.

In 2014, in Work Comp and Baseball DePaolo said:

There are, however, claims that are difficult from the very outset. Sometimes we hear about them but most of the time we don’t.

The ones that we do hear about get dismissed from our conscience too easily because the melodrama in their vocalization of what’s wrong gets drowned by our own jaded pessimism.

These cases, though, are real. There are real people behind these cases. People get hurt. People get toyed with. People don’t get what is needed, what is promised in the Grand Bargain, and set aside as disturbed and having unrealistic expectations.

Some contact me because of this blog, seeking answers, help and remedies.

I have met some – like Linda Ayers. I won’t get into Linda’s case here – that’s not the point.

Linda is vocal, like a few other injured workers. She has a blog, she is active in social media, she posts comments to this blog.

And she probably drives the defense crazy as she is prolifically passionate about making sure the system works for her and for other injured workers.

It’s easy to dismiss Linda’s activities as the rantings of an unstable person, but she is not an unstable person. She is a person who’s case spiraled out of control from the beginning, and we know that the early stages of a claim are the most critical.

It hard for most Americans to realize the atrocities that happen under the banner of Workers’ Compensation.  David mentioned me in a few more of his blogs, and we exchanged more than a few emails over the course of my case.

When I told him I was “attending mediation with an open mind, open heart, and empty briefcase” he was aghast, and insisted I needed a lawyer but that I was so angry, nobody would help me.  We had a few philosophical exchanges on those topics.   I am grateful to David for those exchanges and media coverage.

I was also, in 2014, one of the four finalists for CompLaude Awards, and in 2014, 2015 and up until May 2016, I was a strong advocate for the CompLaude Awards, and you can see the blogs to prove it!  Plenty of private emails were sent on behalf of the effort, also, and my nominations were significant, with at least one award winner — in the doctor category.

Since the “open mind, open heart, empty briefcase” strategy was successful, for all intents and purposes, I have been attempting to ‘rebrand’ from being a ‘screamer and thought provoker,’ despite the “Difficult Persons” deeply entrenched in the PROFITS BEFORE LIVES business models that most Americans don’t know about, and don’t want to know about.

Social Security Administration ‘mis-behavior’ and other improprieties apparently require renewed efforts to address further government malfunctions.  My carefully organized evidence arrived in Washington DC mail rooms last week, including letters to The Ten Congressional Representatives who have gone on record as being concerned about American Workers and Taxpayers and Workers Compensation.

Wait till they see the SSA package of loose marbles and loose screws, fabrications, falsehoods, and general malfeasance, with indicators of many unclean hands involved in the financial terrorism against me, and others like me. Might be interesting.  It’s another one of those ‘oh so sad, common stories’ that happen all the time, but you don’t hear much about those DIRTY OPEN SECRETS EITHER.

I retained a writer/editor to help dig through my wins to help with rebranding.  It was a costly event, with a typical cognitive dissonant reaction.  I shared my business resume and said it’s not really valid anymore, since cognitive impairments are what they are.  I thought I made it clear that I am injured, NOT STUPID.  I think that point may have been overlooked.

Early on, after a lengthy conversation, the editor said that my ‘story’ must be told but that it must be told in a way that people will want to hear more, and not simply want to kill me for telling the truth.  I said, “Yeah, exactly what I want your help with.”  That was months ago.

I make it clear that while I believe WorkComp arrests could fill a few cell blocks or privatized penitentiaries, my intention is not to bust the crooks, but to FREE THE HOSTAGES.  BIG DIFFERENCE.  ONE IS BASED IN HARSH REALITY, AND THE OTHER IS DELUSIONAL.   (Hint: Rico rules)

From the volume of notes I shared, draft 1 painted me as a total loser, victim, physically and mentally incapable of doing sh*t, and would have subjected me to litigation on top of that. That first draft was more along lines of ‘publish that, and they’ll surely kill you.’  :?

There was absolute inability by the party to see the dots being connected between the exterminations by Workers Compensation and by the Nuclear Industry.

Arguing about my volunteer efforts that have had a significant global reach since 2011 Triple Nuclear Meltdowns at Fukushima – WAS NOT AND IS NOT A DISCUSSION ITEM ON THE TABLE.

It was suggested that I choose one, and check with my pals on which to choose. The results were in….  Injured Worker Advocates suggested dropping the Radiation Warnings to #DodgeTheRads and why, as totally irrelevant; Anti-Nuclear Advocates suggested dropping Injured Worker Advocacy as they are good as dead anyway, if they have serious injuries.    “EXTERMINATIONS” would be all inclusive!

WorkComp has been known to work ok in first-aid situations for minor injuries. Horrific with serious injuries, and exacerbates injuries that, with immediate medical care, could result in return to work scenarios and partial recoveries.

One pal said, ‘Each camp, of course, wants that loudest mouth, and you’re a BIG LOUD MOUTH.’  😀

I would love to know that WorkComp is moving in a clean, life-saving direction for the millions involved, so I could just drop that topic…. but it seems that the propagandists are digging in to protect their profits by any means necessary — including your life or mine.

If there are more than 54 million injured and disabled workers in America, and approximately 8.9 million are on Social Security Disability, are the rest homeless and destitute?  SSA pays ‘nazi war criminals’ with greater ease than it pays Americans with Disabilities….yikes!   CLEAN UP TIME!  LET’S GO!

I guess that was lost money….I sent a note to that editor last week suggesting if it’s too hard, I understand, but darn, I paid A BUNCH OF MONEY FOR THAT.  I hope a refund follows, since draft 2 never arrived.  😕

A couple of my pals are compiling books about stories of people with brain injuries, and my story doesn’t fit their audiences.  Injured Workers have a particular extra set of survival battles, as anybody ever touched by that industry knows.

Even other TBI survivors cannot fathom the extent of malice and corruption too many Injured Workers are subjected to, that actually prevent recovery and often cause death because it is more profitable for the industry to ‘risk a $100,000 wrongful death suit’ than to pay for medical care in hundreds of thousands of dollars because care was neither immediate, prompt, or appropriate in so many cases.

How many of you have seen the Hillary videos [Google search hillary seizures – today the count is 547,000 results] showing what appears to be seizures after the DNC conventions, from either her Concussion of 2012, or her extreme radiation poisoning in Spring 2011 at the beginning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Meltdowns.

The Secretary had been sent to Tokyo to mitigate damage to commerce and establish censorship guidelines, apparently.   “Your Radiation This Week” describes the ongoing radiation poisoning across America.

So, if Hillary can run for president with a brain injury and convulsions/seizures, maybe SSA initial conclusions in 2012-2015 that brains are not needed to work as a sales executive were closer to accurate than believed.  The videos haven’t been scrubbed from the Internet, and there’s plenty of Good Kop/Bad Kop going on with the corporate media, as you have no doubt noticed.

American selection process, quite the circus this time, isn’t it.

“What difference does it make?”  — Check your local radiation readings and how many cities have been over 1,000 CPM, for how long. “Normal background is 5-20 CPM.”   See Your Radiation This Week – the series began April 2015.  Catch up. #DodgeTheRads

Home-efforts at rehabilitation have included studying online courses like a mad-woman, so maybe I do get to return to the WorkForce, one day soon.   Watch for the eCourse….it will be free … sort of a self-procured apprentice-ship.

I think it’s time for Congress to establish a Civil Rights and Human Rights Commission to further investigate what happens to Injured American Workers.

The Courts apparently ‘routinely rule in favor of the insurance carriers’ and some business owners call it ‘legislated fraud.’  You may be hearing more about it as the industry attacks on Injured Law Enforcement and Firefighters seems to be escalating.  Hopefully, their Unions will step up and speak out.

Heck, Fukushima-Gate investigations might be appropriate about now, too, huh?!  America, America!  What happened!

 

Here’s my best shot at REBRANDING, so far, shared over on Facebook in an online biz group, and in a few Injured Worker groups.

Linda Ayres‎ Occupy WorkComp  ·  LEARNING NEVER ENDS…

There are 67 of us here in Occupy WorkComp. Do YOU want to introduce yourself, and maybe say a little about your situation and how we might support you? Remember, it’s a PUBLIC GROUP — ain’t no secrets here! ;D

Here’s what I’m learning:

From another group, where I am learning more about how to get an eCourse together to perhaps help more of you save your own lives…

The instructor runs a great group, and invites everybody to introduce themselves, and there are group calls…it’s a course I paid to join, but they have a public group, too… I’ve told you about it before, and I’ll share more as things come together.

Here’s how I introduced myself to them, for what it’s worth…

~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi Everybody! Participation seems to be a key here at PPE! 😀

My abilities to be short and concise are a little impaired, so here’s my best shot…..The images below are the shortest version. 😀

“Please take a moment and introduce yourself! We officially kick off on August 1 but the party can start before then!” – Instructor

I would have joined in a bit sooner, but I was having a little FB thought-police detention issues… it happens to some politically-socially active members of our little communities. FB ‘ads’ seem to deter the harassment, to a degree.

I am in the process of getting to know ‘the new me’ and rebranding that new me and I look forward to getting to know more of you, and the services you are providing to help uplift humanity in these challenging times.

Like so many of you, I have also signed up for a gazillion courses, free and paid and have completed quite few of them, and I love Colleen’s style of teaching… she breaks everything down to do-able steps, in her royal style! The 7-day challenge was one I actually finished! Hoooray! I even blogged about the process over at LinkedIn.

I’ve been ‘working on’ creating an eCourse for over a year, and there have been too many ‘moving pieces’ for me. I am also working on a few different eBooks.

I am very hopeful of discovering strategies and methods and structures and support here so that the eCourse will be completed and this piece of social media will become like child’s play.

I am a Workers’ Compensation Survivor in the USA and a #TBI (#BrainInjury #Concussion) survivor as a result. Friends in Canada, UK and Australia face similar life-threatening challenges from workplace injuries The internet brings us all together to explore solutions.

If you have friends or loved ones fighting the good fight, don’t let them fight alone. Lend a hand, and some blog space!
My intentions are to help Injured Workers escape the system(s) with their lives — Workers’ Compensation is NOT an employee benefit.

My professional friends told me, ‘Get out of work comp by any means necessary – it will kill you.’ They didn’t have a clue about the how. It took me several years to find that ‘magic formula’ that may also work for others who have a grasp of the power of social media.

My blogs about workers’ compensation and nuclear matters include reminders to #DodgeTheRads#OccupyVirtually and to remember remember…

Learning never ends. See you over at Kajabi-Land and Teachable!

Any time, anywhere and Injured Worker reaches out for help, I want the hand of IDWA to be there, and for that, I am responsible.

 

Here’s the Australia website…. INJURED WORKERS SUPPORT NETWORK AUSTRALIA http://www.injuredworkerssupport.org.au/

Contact info is at the end of the brief video… I’ll do what I can to reach out to Rowmen. Perhaps you will, too?

They even invite Injured Worker stories, and probably don’t have nasty ol’ trolls trying to stop them from helping, by threatening “legal action.”

# # #

Sidebar: The editor I thought would be able to help ME get YOUR stories properly edited and formatted and ready for ebook didn’t work out. I think the topic of what’s happening is too harsh.  “Next!”     We may just put it together and e-publish on Create Space and call it ” SURVIVING WORKERS COMPENSATION – Draft 1″  :D

cognitive dissonance

NOBODY WANTS TO BELIEVE THIS KRAP HAPPENS IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY….. UNDERSTAND THAT, AND CONDUCT YOURSELVES ACCORDINGLY.

# # #

In the USA we have NAIDW.org – a great online resource. Give Jon A. Arbay a shout-out and see if they need any volunteers to help with anything and everything… Maybe Jon will address this group in a FB Note or blog and tell us how we can support them supporting American Injured Workers.

Here’s their FB page:
https://www.facebook.com/naidw/😀

I think he’s still here in this group too, unless we ran him off.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Who will find out about a similar group in Canada and bring the info back to this group?

On FB there is Injured Workers Fighting WSIB but it says it’s a ‘government organization’… ?? https://www.facebook.com/ONIWGNETWORK/

Here is their Google+ site on WSIB Corruption? https://plus.google.com/communities/107513170697707197393

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you are a part of these organizations, please check with your members and bring a post here to this group, identify what sort of help you need, and we’ll see what we can do.

I reached out to some other virtual groups recently; we’ll see how they respond… I’m pretty hopeful that once they grasp the atrocities being committed, they will want to lend a hand.

If any of you have made any progress with establishing your own blog, let me know. Send me the link with WORKCOMP BLOG somewhere in the subject line at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com and start building your email list.

We need “units of service in every state—people to people.” I would imagine the same is required in Canada… province to province?

FB is not enough….

In USA, Injured Workers did not fight against a known industry Workers’ Compensation propaganda blitz that was told about in February, and launched in May, publicly, on their blogs.

If you don’t follow industry blogs, and don’t have your own blog, well, you know the ol’ saying… WITHOUT A BLOG….. INJURED WORKERS ARE UNARMED AND UNPROTECTED AND SOL.

IDEAS??!?!

Anybody there with an interest in saving lives from the WorkComp extermination machinery with some extra blogging etc…#OccupyVirtually….. as if lives depend on it??

There is one active Injured Worker blogger in the USA, to the best of my knowledge. The US Work Comp industry has 22 bloggers shaping public opinion with massive amounts of disinformation.

There are a handful of Injured Worker’s with Facebook pages and groups. A couple posters on LinkedIn. Any other BLOGGERS you have discovered?

I am working on assembling some anonymous injured worker stories (for the protection of the injured workers from retaliation) and I’m working on creating an eCourse to illustrate how to escape the system and regain/reclaim civil and human rights.

Too many injured Workers our “dying on their knees”

The Australians in the above video seem to have a model that works. Any thoughts?

MESSAGE me or mail at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com if you have ideas to share? Thanks! Linda

What’s a Brain Injured Worker to Do When Social Security Disability is an EPIC FAIL?

Ok, it’s time check in with Acting Social Security Commissioner Carolyn W. Colvin since local Congressional and State Senate representatives are unable to cut thru the SSA BS, obfuscation of facts and misrepresentations and WorkComp and State disability issues. WISH ME LUCK! MADDER THAN HELL.

One doc suggested it’s ‘the same war, different battlefield’ for Injured Workers! Thanks, #WorkCompsters. Maybe The Ten Congressional Representatives concerned about Injured and Disabled Workers & Taxpayers will demand a Civil Rights Commission effort. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Watch for Blogs!

  • Linda Ayres

    It appears that the #SSA is committed to communications, and to social media. https://www.ssa.gov/socialmedia/

    Let’s hope Acting Commissioner Colvin can get to the bottom of the issues. CA offices refuse to correct their errors.

    Since May 2015 failed efforts to obtain accurate calculations of ‘retroactive’ benefits show local & state offices have been unable/unwilling to deal with facts, reflective of leaving more than one injured worker to fight further litigation because ‘somebody didn’t do their job’ when ‘somebody got hurt at work.’

    How to address ongoing wildly fluctuating calculations from an SSA retro pay award of $25,591.00 to subsequent overpayment reimbursement demands of $27,078, $25,578, $11,767, $9,964.10, $5,555.10, $22,869.10, $21,066.20, $22,869.10 –WITHOUT ANY CHANGE OF FACTS–PLEASE ADVISE.

    Not even Congress can get a straight answer?  Rather than elevate the case file to someone with basic math skills, SSA wants to waste more time and cause more aggravation and litigation via their process…of which their field offices are sadly in complete confusion about, and spread nothing but misinformation, albeit compassionately.

    How many appeal levels are there?

    Generally, there are four levels of appeal.

    They are:

    Reconsideration;      – There have been 11 of ‘these’

    Hearing by an administrative law judge; – In December 2015, local SSA office advised that appeals had been exhausted and Hearing was the next option and would take place sometime after January 2017; Hearing papers filed at the office, apparently incorrectly; 6 ‘reconsideration’ events took place after December 2015… with wildly fluctuating results, interruptions of benefits, corrections of misinformation, etc.

    In 2014 and 2015, the assistance of State Senator Jean Fuller was requested regarding WorkComp, EDD and SSA matters.

    Hearing papers were filed again, with copies to Congressman Cook’s office, in June 2016, wherein his office advised the case is now closed, even though they never were able to get the repeatedly requested accurate accounting of the alleged actual income from WC and EDD being used by SSA to falsely and incorrectly miscalculate, ignoring all evidence of actual income repeatedly provided.

    The issues of the $43,000 in medical expenses incurred by the Injured Worker/Disable Party, requested by the SSA Judge, were still not considered, nor were the Compromise and Release documents—DESPITE CONGRESSIONAL INTERVENTION AND INVESTIGATION.

    I was later advised that the Honorable Congressman is not a part of the SSA Congressional Committee, and they could do nothing more for me. They exacerbated the problems, and got no closer to the truth.

    Hence, Sen. Sherrod Brown, Ranking Member, Social Security, Pension and Family Policy Subcommittee – Senate Finance committee, Rep. Xavier Becerra, Ranking Member, Subcommittee on Social Security, House Ways and Means Committee, Sen. Al Franken, Ranking Member, Subcommittee on Employment and Workplace Safety – Senate HELP Committee, and Rep. Frederica S. Wilson, Ranking Member, Subcommittee on Select Revenue Measures – House Education and the Workforce Committees will also be copied on the letter to Acting Commissioner

    Review by the Appeals Council; and

    Federal Court review…

    Actual income provided by WC and State Disability is blatantly disregarded by SSA Staff, repeatedly. Congressman’s office shrugs and said, ‘get a lawyer’ and if you can’t afford one, go to ‘legal aid’ Really?!

    WHY DOES THE CONGRESSMAN’S OFFICE THINK IT’S OK FOR SSA TO MAKE FALSE REPRESENTATIONS & THREATS & MORE, SUGGESTING LEGAL COUNSEL TO PROTECT FROM WRONG-DOINGS BY A FEDERAL AGENCY?

    THAT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE, DOES IT?

    “…As I indicated earlier, I am committed to fighting waste, fraud, and abuse and have significantly expanded efforts at the agency to do so. I am equally committed to ensuring that the people who come to us in tremendous need receive the benefits for which they are eligible as quickly as possible.

What’s a #Brain Injured Worker to Do When Social Security Disability is an EPIC FAIL?

– PLEASE STAND BY — Time for Social Security Disability improprieties to be included in the Workers’ Compensation National Discussions, isn’t it?

If you have experience getting to accurate calculations with SSA, please share how you did it! Thanks!😀 Where are the Investigative Journalists on this issue? It’s a common one.

Injured Workers call it SSA “Magic Math.” What do lawyers call it?

MATH CHALLENGED

A letter to Acting Commissioner Carolyn W. Colvin, with full evidence, is being prepared now, and the Ten Congressional Representatives who signed the October 2015 WorkComp letter are being copied. Enough is Enough.

     Congress on WorkComp 10 2015 - WE BELIEVE 1

Congressional letter signers 10 2015 2

If local SSA offices are unable/unwilling to do their jobs, somebody needs to look deeper.

Anybody have competency and ethical issues with Social Security offices that cause harm and further threats of further harm and litigation because SSA staff refuses to deal with facts, feigns losses of submitted documents, and obfuscates and misrepresents matters, all to the apparent benefit of the insurance industries and loss to SSA, Injured Workers and Taxpayers?

Wow … is that how Social Security Disability is supposed to work?

Did you hear about the LTD carrier that threatened lawsuit for ‘repayment’ based on false SSA numbers, and said ‘THE COURTS ROUTINELY FIND IN OUR FAVOR’…

Really? Ewwww. Alrighty, we’ll see what America thinks!

Congressman’s office shrugged at it’s failure to get the facts via “Congressional Investigation”, and instead accepted some bogus irrelevant numbers on a page as good ’nuff, and suggested hiring an attorney or going to legal aid…’case closed’…. Be sure to vote!

Why does an injured worker have to hire legal counsel when Social Security Admin fails? Or, jump through hoops for years all the way to “Federal Court Review”??!! They can’t get the same number twice…for over a year…and it took how many years for them to believe a brain injury is a disability?!!!

How to address ongoing wildly fluctuating calculations from an SSA retro pay award of $25,591.00 to subsequent overpayment reimbursements demands of $27,078, $25,578, $11,767, $9,964.10, $5,555.10, $22,869.10, $21,066.20, $22,869.10 –WITHOUT ANY CHANGE OF FACTS–PLEASE ADVISE.

Because of these false calculations, the Long Term Disability insurance carrier is demanding approximately $22,000 in overpayment reimbursements, based on the initial $25,591.00, all based on false allegations, apparently, that somebody with my name received and continues to receive $4,177.30 monthly disability payments….  Would the Salvation Army have been called upon for utility and food assistance if that income was being received in rural America?

Such income is contrary to reality and to evidence provided regarding actual income, repeatedly, so it can only be assumed that SSA is just making it up.  This is not totally implausible, as the initial $25,591 ‘retro-pay’ award was sent by SSA to a bank account that had been closed over a year, and not to the account that early retirement monies had been direct deposited to since June 2014, which required intervention by the Treasury Department.  SSA has also falsely reported numbers to the IRS on 1099 form, that conflict with even their statements.


It does make one wonder if they ever sorted out the issues of SSA paying Nazi War Criminals milllions and millions of dollars in a big ‘ooops’ operation.

social security pays nazis


Injured Workers call these common practices “MAGIC MATH” — What would the DOJ call it?

 SOMETHING IS TERRIBLY WRONG WITH SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION, ISN’T IT?!

 

4 out of 3 people struggle with math - and there are 1946 known lethal isotopes -- DODGE THE RADS

That doesn’t even take into account $43,000 of medical receipts the SSA Judge asked for, nor the C & R. D’oh. Those documents must still be in the ‘too hard/too complicated’ pile.

There is no competency or drug testing at SSA? The volume of letters from there are…. pathetic and incoherent… with reference also to ‘corkers compensation’ and a host of other strange words. Mis-information provided by local SSA office is the only constant.

Smacks of abuse, doesn’t it? Or would that be collusion?

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW THANK YOU

 

If there are more than 54 million Injured and Disabled American Workers and 8.9 million receive Social Security Disability…

What happens to the other 45.1 million?

MATH ILLITERACY AND WORKERS COMPENSATION AND SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION AND LONG TERM DISABILITY INSURANCE AND TAXPAYERS

NAIDW 54 million plus

 

With thanks to encouragement by the Investigative Reporting by ProPublica and NPR in the series, Insult to Injury, The Demolition of Workers Compensation,  A Committee of Federal Lawmakers, in their October 2015 letter to the Department of Labor summed things up:

Congress on WorkComp 10 2015 - WE BELIEVE 1

Congressional letter signers 10 2015 2

For example, in California, the unenforced and apparently unenforceable laws of Workers Compensation, provides 104 weeks of “TTD”  Temporary Total Disability Payments, which is to be supplemented by 52 weeks of State Disability, dispensed by the EDD – Employment Development Department.

 

If those systems fail, and they usually do except in first-aid minor injuries, Injured Workers can “apply” for Social Security Disability benefits, that they have paid into for years.

 

Injured Workers cannot expect reasonable treatment as the staff of the SSA apparently is not subject to any competency testing or guidelines.  While it can take up to 3-5 years for “Award” of SSDI benefits, it can take longer than that for their offices to do the math on retroactive benefits, monies received from Work Comp (calculated from different charts, by different parties) and from EDD.

 

Facts apparently mean nothing to SSA, and in fact, they initially allege that a Traumatic Brain Injury cannot prevent someone from returning to work as an executive sales person.   Their doctors are of the same ilk as many of the WorkComp doctors when it comes to current knowledge of medicine.  Would you say, “YOURE FIRED” to a clinical psychologist who advises the SSA that the injured party could be a ‘crossing guard’ with auditory, visual and cognitive impairments?

 

Long term disability carriers also seem to be part of the “Cahoots Gangs” and can threaten injured and disabled people with termination of benefits, outrageous demands for ‘reimbursement of overpayments’ based on swaths of Social Security outrageous misrepresentations of facts and gross inabilities to do simple math to calculate benefits.

 

linda-ayres-says-join-me-on-twitter and linked in lindaayres311

LTD carriers can further threaten Injured and Disabled Americans, using the false evidence from the Social Security Administration, that is also falsely provided to the IRS in the form of inaccurate 1099’s (a common practice, so accountants advise).  The LTD carriers refuse to deal with facts, can further threaten and bully with litigation rather than reasonable discussion, and they can boast that “the Courts routinely find in their favor.”

WOULD THAT ALARM YOU?

NAIDW TBI AWARENESS

WorkCompLinda Twitter

Rather than correct their mistakes, the SSA can take years, commonly, to address the issues that profit insurance companies and agencies, but harm the injured and disabled.  HOW CAN THAT BE RIGHT?

HOW CAN THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION REFUSE A REQUEST VIA CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATION TO SIMPLY PROVIDE EVIDENCE OF THE INCOME UPON WHICH THEIR MISREPRESENTATIONS ARE BASED, ACTUAL INCOME ALLEGED VS. OBFUSCATIONS AND ASSUMPTION, IN STARK CONTRAST TO EVIDENCE PROVIDED ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS TO THE SSA?

The assumptions by SSA of overpayment, after an initial payment that required Treasury Department to intervene since SSA ‘inadvertently’ mis-routed the initial award money to a closed bank account, despite the fact that the injured worker had been forced to file for early-retirement money to fight total impoverishment.

thank you wynlinda's med legal activism

 

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE OTHER APPROXIMATELY 45.1 MILLION INJURED AND DISABLED AMERICANS WHO DON’T GET IMMEDIATE, REASONABLE AND APPROPRIATE MEDICAL CARE BECAUSE THEY ARE PART OF THE WORKCOMP SYSTEM, WHO CAN’T USE EMPLOYEE BENEFIT INSURANCE TO GET IMMEDIATE CARE SO HOPE FOR RETURN TO WORK IS DASHED UPON INJURY.

 

THEY DON’T OFTEN GET CONSISTENT OR LEGAL AMOUNTS OF TEMPORARY TOTAL DISABILITY PAYMENTS, SOCIAL SECURITY TAKES A FIGHT AND THEN WHEN MISCONDUCT BY THE ADMINISTRATION IS APPARENT, THEY SUGGEST HIRING AN ATTORNEY OR SEEK LEGAL AID TO CORRECT A SYSTEM FUNDED WITH FEDERAL FUNDS, INVOLVED IN SYSTEMATIC ABUSE OF INJURED WORKERS AND OTHER TAXPAYERS.

 

Congressional reps suggest legal aid, and SSA sends flyers suggesting taking it to Federal Court??!! D’oh!  ALL BECAUSE SOMEBODY DIDN’T DO THEIR JOB OR CAN’T DO BASIC MATH AT SSA?!!!

 

THERE IS NO PRETENSE OF VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION.

Perhaps the ongoing corruption investigations being employed by the DA’s and FBI offices will help.

How do you get from here to there after WorkComp? Here’s an update on Passive Income Prep School…

Linda Ayres looking for The Magic!

‪#‎PassiveIncomePrepSchool‬

Thanks, Colleen Arneil!!! Day 1 steps were simple and powerful!

Step 1 — 10 points – I showed up live at 11 to the Passive Income Lounge; calendar marked to be there tomorrow, too.

Step 2 – 10 points – My eCourse topic is WorkComp Survival and Virtual Combat Skills

The Select Your Topic action was clarifying and confirming/personally validating.

The “Validate My Idea” exercise was real powerful, and had me smiling.

On UDEMY WorkComp had matches, but I did discover two courses

1) Introduction to Workers Compensation Surveillance by a private investigator [ a horrible and harsh reality of the practices of WorkComp in America, Canada, UK and Australia….]

2)VA Fully Developed Disability Claims – ‘incapacitation’ is the military equivalent of WorkComp… and it looks like a soldier developed that 6 section curriculum, with a very left-brain military organizational structure. I may have to study that! 😀

2) Amazon had 2,654 books on WorkComp; it had 6,330 books for Injured Workers (mostly written by attorneys, but a few that touched on Survival, written by other Injured Workers — most were written a few years ago, and some were had introductions by attorneys… none of those were sugar-coated. Most of the books seemed to be ‘industry propaganda’ but I even found one by a former WorkComp commissioner … spilling the beans on the atrocities…and offering some solutions.

That was a totally cool exercise. I also found my log in to your eCourse that I purchased how long ago?

I even posted a couple related thoughts on LinkedIn (they know me in the WorkComp community there; I am one of just a couple of Injured Worker BLOGGERS in the USA… I also want to do an eCourse on BEGINNING TO BLOG….so that Human Rights and Civil Rights activists can better harness the power of social media.

“WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW” is a little slogan/meme I have used for years… it fits. 😀

And below are images of how far I got so far in creating a course… I would welcome feedback on which is more inviting, considering that most Injured Workers in America are being seriously abused by a system that intends only harm, and many feel (and are!) quite dis-empowered.. and hope is a long forgotten emotion for too many.

See you tomorrow! Thank you! xoxoxox

Linda AyresThanks Colleen Arneil – there seem to be 8.9 million American injured workers on Social Security Disability, and another stat is 54 million Injured and Disabled Workers across America. Canada, Australia, UK all have the very same challenges. Yes, we’re quite a demographic….!! We serve as extreme profit centers for some pretty vile racketeers…. xoxoox

DAY 2 – “What Makes you YOU?

#PassiveIncomePrepSchool

Thanks Colleen Arneil I love the structure here, too!

SUMMARY:
1) I am a Writer, Warrior, TBI WorkComp Survivor,
2) I am a Blogger– WorkComp and Nuclear Warnings
3) At times, sometimes surprising to me, I can swear in some of the most un-lady like manners….at some of the most influential people, if they happen to annoy.

Step 1 — 10 points – I showed up at FB live at 11 to the Passive Income Lounge; calendar marked to be there tomorrow, too.
Step 2 – 10 points – 3 Random nuggets about me… ‘owning who I am, flaunting it and sharing it…’

1. WorkComp is one of the ‘dirty little secrets’ that puts all of us risk. The#YouEconomy may changes that very soon! I slipped on ice at work and conked my head in 2012… and learned the meaning of “TBI – Traumatic Brain Injury.” I am a TBI Survivor and Warrior!
Neurologists all said, ‘EMBRACE THE NEW YOU” and this ‘new me’ was not as fast, smart and perky as the ol’ me. I said to one doctor, “Well, I don’t know who this new chick is, but if I am supposed to embrace her, I think they better plan to rehabilitate me — and train me to become a neuro-scientist!” He was not sure if I was kidding or not, so he invited me to an annual Brain Injury Conference that weekend, but warned me that it was primarily for military and medical professionals. THAT was the beginning of my real grasp of#Concussion.
[If you haven’t seen the movie, Concussion, get the dvd, and watch the back story and the documentary included, also. Dr. Omalu is quite the American Warrior — fought with the NFL — and survived, and changes are a ‘comin…PS If you have a friend or loved one with a #Concussion, try not to say mean stuff like, ‘you like fine, get over it!’ .]

2. I learned to remind attorneys and workers’ comp ‘doctors’ that I’m injured not stupid when I encountered some of their …. shenaningans and improprieties.
Without benefit of competent legal counsel, in less than 5 years, the ‘parties reached resolution, subject to confidentiality agreement.” and it is upon that ROCK I hope to empower other injured workers in America, Canada, UK and Australia, and beyond, how to fight a ‘rigged’ system and get out with your life. Some of my Injured and disabled friends have been fighting for their lives for more than 5, 10, 15, 20 and some even 30 years. It’s a horrible system of abuse and torture, and if one is not permanently and totally disabled going in, the risk is quite high for being so before ever escaping. One book, co-authored by an Injured Worker and an attorney, (discovered in yesterday’s PassiveIncomePrepSchool assignment had a more polite way to describe the improprieties that most all Injured Workers face. It said something like, “Trust your Mother, but cut the deck anyway.” Something relative to playing cards and protecting one’s self against cheaters.

” I BLOG, THEREFORE I AM A WORKCOMP SURVIVOR. BE ONE, TOO.” is one of my memes.
Another is, “Without a blog and a growing database, Injured Workers are Unarmed and Unprotected in the Global War on Workers.”
[LinkedIn influencers have found my …. transparency… simultaneously refreshing, alarming and intimidating…Some have revised their guidebooks based on my input..]

3. THANKS FOR PERMISSION TODAY TO BE TOTALLY AUTHENTIC, AND EVEN SWEAR LIKE A SALTY SAILOR!!!
Speech therapists and clinical psychs say “quit swearing” and that’s as helpful as saying “quit forgetting and stop being so damn confused and disorganized…” Expletives are not uncommon, for years, post brain injury. It is sometimes the least important of the impairments to address….. the brain does regulate Everything. POST-TBI …. my levels of decorum hardly exists! F**k!

Thanks again for all you do to make the world a better place, and make us laugh in the process!

Onward!

See y’all tomorrow!

DAY 3 – MISS THIS AND MAKE NO MONEY

#PassiveIncomePrepSchool Colleen Arneil

– Better late than not at all! 😀

Many of the books on Workers Compensation and or Injured Workers either had NO REVIEWS or happy-happy ones that appeared to be ‘solicited reviews’..

I will have to dig a little deeper… a theme for why people LOVED the books could be summed up with “SAVED MY LIFE.”

‘Crappy Reviews’ were more of a ‘surrender’ to the ‘snake pit’ of the ‘corruption….’

State-specific books confused some people, and others were annoyed that they purchased books not knowing they were State specific.

The exercise helps me see that my ‘niche’ is on target… I see no value in playing the ‘rigged legal game’ and my ebook and eCourse are aimed at helping injured workers (and their attorneys, if they have them) do whatever is necessary to ‘encourage’ all stakeholders coming together with impartial mediators and structured settlement teams.

DOJ can address the criminal activities and malfeasance… helping to FREE THE HOSTAGES seems to be a ‘higher calling.”

PS With all the talk in the lounge about buying courses, I just had to buy your CANAVA course today 😀 , and as I looked at the One on One Coaching I was very excited and then experienced some serious ‘sticker shock’ that moved into, “I can’t afford THAT. Kudos for Colleen! She’s worth that and much more! Hmmmmmmmmm….. I wonder if she ever does ‘small group’ coaching that could lead to more intense 1 on 1 coaching…” Then I saw the money course, and thought, hmmmmmmmmmmmmm….. and got my smile back. We’ll start with Canava and the Course Creation I already have… and we’ll see where this 7-day course leads… The clarity by Day 3 is pretty phenomenal, based on the course, lectures and group input! Wooo hooo!

You’re Awesome, and sooooo Smart, yes, we are lucky about your background!

Thanks! See you tomorrow at 11!

DAY 4 – THIS IS A GAMECHANGER

#PassiveIncomePrepSchool Colleen Arneil

Thanks Colleen! Great questions, tiny steps, powerful insights! Saying it out loud (or posting it) brings it into ‘manifestation’… 😀

~~~~~

STEP ONE: 10 POINTS – ATTEND FACEBOOK LIVE AT 11 “chatting about the mindset it takes to makethe passive income flow’

STEP TWO: 10 POINTS – Post and share “YOUR BIGGEST desire is. What are you hoping to make happen with your business? Where do you want to be in 6 months?”

~~~~~~~~

The topics of Workers Compensation Survival and Radiation Survival ‘light me up’ because the Rads are extinction level and the people need to know and because WorkComp is extermination level, and the people need to know — in order to take survival precautions….

I am hoping to create educational ‘products’ that can help me serve an ideal audience, and do so in a way that also helps me to create a revenue flow to serve fiercely, with top tech automation and beautiful, simple to follow and very organized personal development/self-help/Warrior programs…(sort of like how the Passive Income Queen conducts biz! ) 😀

Einstein reminds us that ‘Those who have the privilege to know have the DUTY to act.’ I know. I act.

By or before January 15, 2017, six months today, my “biggest desire’ is to to have a functional organization/business/program, consisting of, but not limited to:

1) One or more TEACHABLE eCourses in WorkComp Survival, and one or more eCourse in understanding & grasping the need to #DodgeTheRads, as it impacts health, & 3+ mainstream media article publications;
2) One or more eBooks on WorkComp Survival and #DodgeTheRads life extension practices with full on opt-in pages & all necessary tech pieces/systems for webinars, and growing database and global reach;
3) Continued blogging on related topics, such as Social Media, TBI and LOEF, helping others ‘connect the dots’ and take right action;
4) An affordable, brilliant, affordable team of experts working with me to produce the above referenced transformational materials/products and related ..and a database of more than 20,000 ‘interested’ parties and co-workers;
5) Social Media Movements of global proportions to provoke further conscious thought and positive transformations

BRAIN INJURY ADVOCACY GROUP

OR SOMETHING EVEN BETTER! 😀
