Is there Life After WorkComp if Survival Happens?

“Kudos on the hard work. It’s so empowering to show this specific demographic about what IS possible still.”  – Collen Arneil

Here’s Day 2 of the #PassiveIncomePrepSchool – HOW TO STAND OUT FROM THE COMPETITION

This Week I am participating in the Passive Income Queen’s  free 7-day course – Passive Income Prep School, and I purchased her eCourse creation program months ago.

Colleen is using the new FB video real time chat, a downloadable workbook, and a private FB group…. real “Today” stuff.

The “auto pilot” focus is very important for me, because, well, recovering from a Traumatic Brain Injury can be much like flying an aircraft if the auto-pilot parachuted out at the first conk on the head impact, leaving the controls in a bit of disarray. The online live class is fun, and there’s time for a little socializing after the lecture.

Since in WorkComp ‘vocational rehabilitation’ is apparently non-existent in the USA, attorneys who allege to represent Injured Workers might begin to look into online resources to keep Injured Workers learning while on the regular ‘rest and wait and wait and wait and wait’ for medical care programs.

Injured Workers might be smart to be proactive and accept the gifts that are available from the millennials to learn more about how things are unfolding in the Internet Age. Injured Workers could possibly learn to blog by such efforts.

I thought some of you might enjoy/appreciate the STEPS from Day One and Day Two…. If possible, I’ll post all Seven Days Steps…  Day 2 was a little …. challenge in authenticity!

You can probably still join in, if it’s of interest.  We’re supposed to post in the group by the end of the day, and repeat process for all 7 days.

If not, return to Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains list of posts, and read some of the ones you may have missed.

Here we go!




The Passive Income Lounge may be for you if you want more… and if:

>> You’re intrigued at the idea of creating passive income, and you want to know how it works

>> You recognize that being an entrepreneur is as much about MINDSET as it is strategy—one can’t be successful without the other.

>> You have or you’re thinking of starting an online business

Colleen Arneil is another gifted disrupter, “E-Course Creation & Business Growth Strategist”  and “Passive Income Queen”…

 DAY 1

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 Ayres PS You can’t “ENROLL NOW” …. that’s as far as I got in eCourse creation since March. It’s a beginning! xoxoxo

Colleen Arneil

Colleen Arneil This is great Linda! Kudos on the hard work. It’s so empowering to show this specific demographic about what IS possible still.

Linda Ayres
Linda Ayres Thanks 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 –  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 …. shenanigans 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!
