Speedy Presentations with Ignite Show

Today Dwayne Ross was working on getting some things done and clicked a link that was talking about having a 22 minute meeting…
 

You only have 5 minutes to tell your story. Stories are everywhere… This morning I had a story about waking up early before my alarm…I had another story about receiving a text from my soon to be 16 year old son asking for an iPhone 5S for his birthday but he doesn’t have time to call to say “Hi” Dad, how are you? What a story that is…  So if you have a story to tell maybe this is for you… It’s a cool platform that allows anyone who wants to participate an opportunity to host an event and plug it onto the Ignite website. Consider this… You have topics that you have a passion about and if you want to share it with the world you need a platform. Here’s one that is simple, easy and manageable. DR

Job Carving and Customized Employment

Dwayne Ross Human Service Training and Staff Development for Agencies that serve the community and improve the lives of those I support.

Today was another day where I was able to engage a group of job developers and others to express some top strategies related to getting jobs for those who have disabilities using #Customized Employment. One of the attendees asked about getting a job for “Mark.” We discovered that mark was confined to wheel chair. he was energetic, fun loving, friendly, liked women and limited verbal ability and only had the use of one finger and spoke using a communication device. There were three specific areas that I wanted to impact the most with this group. 1) I wanted them to get rid of the Box not just think out of it. I explained that too many people hold on to the box… keep the box around just in case or truly confine themselves to finding jobs while they too are in a box. I expressed a strategy that would allow them to get rid of the box and find work that is based upon 3 major areas… Strengths, Interest and Abilities which would be supported by the employer’s needs and benefits.

In order for #Customized Employment to work, the job must be tailored not only for the Individual you are looking to place but for the employer as well. You must be dedicated to discovering what “Unique skill,”does the person have that can help the employer overcome a “Unique Challenge.” 2) How do you “discover” the unique skill and how do you sell them to the employer? So many employers are fearful about hiring a person with a disability for a number of reasons… By matching the skill to the employer’s challenges and showing how this could be a successful Win-win situation, most employers will want to take the risk. Through a brain blizzard discovery process you will be able to not only tap into a series of employment options but you make unearth a number of things that many just wouldn’t consider given the person’s limitations. I encouraged everyone to remove the limits and see the possibilities. Finally, we dedicated the last part of our 3 hours together in walking through a discovery process, identifying 3 to 5 specific skills and abilities that we were able to learn as they related to Mark which would allow us to develop a plan of action. Through working the exercise with 6 teams we were able to discover over 25 employment opportunities that were uniquely matched to Marks, skills, interest and abilities while meeting the employers needs through careful needs analysis. This workshop was engaging, informative and upbeat as expressed in some of the comments in the Instructor evaluations. Job carving is the art of discovering a niche that is supported by customized employment. As Mike Callahan stated in this You Tube video post… Supported Employment was the beginning but it has led us to drilling through the assessments, vocational evaluation s and more to a more dedicated approach of #Customized employment.

To bring this workshop to you organization please send us an e-mail, give us a call or connect with me on Facebook.

Dwayne Ross talks about Clickbank University

Dwayne Ross provides On site Human Service Staff Development Training, Youth Development, Online Marketing and MLM information reviews, Blog Training & Suggestions Join the Movement at www.Cashflow2Freedom.com or www.ExtraDigitMovement.com

I was invited to engage in a three part video explaination of how to make money online with Clickbank. I have opened a new site titled Cashflow2Freedom.com to begin educating people about how to use clickbank and I plan to market my own clickbank affiliate program as we move forward. As you can see I also started to use the Clicbank auto blogging widget for wordpress to see how I can make constant blog post about using clickbank and more.

As I recently posted… (March 22, 2014) Watch this video from Clickbank… to learn about what you need to know about getting started with a product online, and getting others to work with you as a joint venture partner. No Hype here. Clickbank the company has the best education… not the online guru, unless they are top sales vendors of the company. Traffic is a great thing but what will people get when they come to your site?

There are hundreds of ways to make money online but very few tell you exactly what to do and how. Clickbank has made online millionaires a household name. Of course many will not tell you that they only help you discover the internet marketing world the rest is up to you. One must access a variety of educational sites, books and more to understand how this really works.

Like a number of others, I lost a lot of money and went into debt trying to make things work out. You can read more at my other post on my site and at www.cashflow2freedom.com You can save your money by taking time to apply what you are learning. Thanks for stopping by… Please leave a comment.

Introducing Charles County Saves Free Financial Wellness Seminars at the Charles County Library. This initiative is making a difference in the lives of the citizens in Charles County Maryland. Charles County Saves (CCS) and the CCS campaign were launched in 2012 by The Assets for Financial Independence Foundation (AFFIF), Inc. a 501 © (3) non-profit organization headquartered in Charles County, Maryland. CCS is a local initiative to the national America Saves annual campaign. America Saves Week, as is Charles County Saves Week, is a dedicated week that promotes good savings behavior.

The Charles County Saves campaign received a citation from the Governor of Maryland on December 23, 2013 and a Proclamation from the Charles County Commissioners on January 7, 2014, declaring the week of February 23, 2014 through March 1, 2014 “Charles County Saves Week”. Join AFFIF and its partners for the 2014 Charles County Saves Campaign by attending one of seven free seminars held at the Charles County Library (West Branch).

Here’s the link to register: Assets for Financial Independence 

As a presenter for this series I will be making some very important resources available to those who attend or those who sign up to receive  the information. One of the coolest tools I will share with everyone and what I covered in the workshop is the use of the “Daily Budget.” The budget is used to show attendees how much money they have coming in and going out. They also learned about true asset versus liabilities and how to turn some liabilities into tax deductions. You can download it free from a number of websites but by singing up you will receive it from me.  We also covered how to use the Debt Eliminator. This is a tool created by Financial Destination that is now widely used by a number of organizations. Dave Ramsey also teaches some of the tenants of the process, helping you understand how to use the Snow-Ball System to reduce you debts.

Finally, attendee were exposed to the “Monopoly System” by William V. and Millionaire Maker Loral Langmier, where you are encouraged to add to the bill pay off system by creating more money versus getting a second job. They are also encouraged to expand you life versus restricting your life. and of course everyone was reminded of the Cash flow quadrants made famous by Robert Kyosaki where you understand the true purpose of your pay check. Too many people start of working from paycheck to paycheck and continue to do so for more than 40 years, always trading time for dollars versus thinking of ideas that help create passive income as well as residual income; Rents, Investments and Business ideas.  The foundational principles used in the Budgeting and Debt Elimination workshop is “Systems work when people don’t and the System that Impoverishes can’t Empower you.” Don’t just pass go!

People with Disabilities Define Beauty and Perfection

Dwayne Ross provides On site Human Service Staff Development Training, Youth Development, Online Travel Marketing and MLM information reviews, Blog Training & Suggestions

Disabled mannequins will be eliciting astonished looks from passers-by on Zurich’s Bahnhofstrasse today. Between the perfect mannequins, there will be figures with scoliosis or brittle bone disease modelling the latest fashions. One will have shortened limbs; the other a malformed spine. The campaign has been devised for the International Day of Persons with Disabilities by Pro Infirmis, an organisation for the disabled. Entitled “Because who is perfect? Get closer.”, it is designed to provoke reflection on the acceptance of people with disabilities. Director Alain Gsponer has captured the campaign as a short film.   This is part of a post from http://jezebel.com/people-with-disabilities-react-to-mannequins-created-in-1475812519

My thoughts were after reading the comments of others who took time to check this post out. I am still amazed at how cold some people are in commenting about people with disabilities. Especially regarding the constant fight for inclusion that they are in everyday. Some try to compare it to Slavery but that is just not the case. It has it’s own lane. Some compare it to the GBLT fight and it’s not comparable. Having a physical or developmental disability is something that we can’t only legislate, but we need to take internal reflection and ask our selves how is it acceptable to continue over looking such an amazing part of our humanness. 

Enjoy this short video regarding this post and please leave a comment: 

Thank you.

Disability is Just Different… Rion Paige

Dwayne Ross provides On site Human Service Staff Development Training, Youth Development, Online Travel Marketing and MLM information reviews, Blog Training & Suggestions.

I was changing the channel and noticed this amazing singer and thought wow she is good but the next person who came up to the microphone absolutely blew me away… I Googled her name on You Tube and what do you know… Rion Paige singing Blown Away!  In the work I do as a Vocational Director I meet parents who are safe, who keep their child’s talent hidden from the public because of the disability. Here she is 13 years old and God has given her this amazing talent and wonderful Spirit! So do people continue to look on the outside making judgments or do we provide person centered opportunities that tend to unearth the natural talents of our children.

I love what her Rion’s mother had to say…  Take a look… and if you want more click here

As providers who work with people with disabilities we need to do more to bring out the best of those we support. I want to encourage others who work in this field to truly support people not just care for them. Support means going the extra step, creating an extra moment doing what ever it takes to bring out the best and make things happen for those who have some barriers whether physical or intellectual.
