When COACHING Looks Like Scamming – #StayAlert #FightBack – TELL OTHERS!

MyWorkCompCoach.com came about as an effort to change from a combative communcation mode in regards to what had been learned about the Workers Compensation system in the United States, Canada, Australia and the UK to a more amicable, visionary mode.

A medical professional suggested that I attempt to “Coach” other injured workers who had zero to little success in finding legal representation, securing medical care, dealing with WorkComp bureaucracies toward return to work and settlement and even fighting with Social Security administration, where costs are often shifted to by ‘the industry’ goon squads.

“Get out of work comp by any means necessary.  It will kill you.”

This is what some professionals advise their friends who get hurt at work.

DePaolo even wrote an article on whether or not he should report a back injury as a workcomp claim, as he was both the owner/CEO and employee.  He opined that staying outside of the system, using his regular health insurance, would most likely have faster and more positive outcome. Not long after that, he lost his life in a suspicious motorcycle accident.

David had wanted me to help the industry mouth-piece from Australia who opposes legislative change and accountability and promotes giving bags of surplus food to the poor injured workers denied benefits.

I thanked David for thinking of me, but assured him I had no interest in such a project, and that I was in favor of civil rights and human rights, not hand-outs. She was booed off the stage at a 2015 or 2016 CompLaude event; I can understand why.  She attacked me, too and denies the Aussie problems, just like that nuclear mouth-piece from down under. Aussie’s share how the industry provokes ‘suicides’ of their injured workers to save money and increase profits.  It happens in the US more often than any humans would like to believe, but it is one of the #Taboo topics.

That doctor who encouraged the creation of this blog suggested that very few people with serious injuries can get out of #WorkComp, and that perhaps I could share successful strategies that included a fierce social media strategy, a growing email list, and a blog and a video channel.

During  that transition time from the content of ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMPENSATION GRAVY TRAINS, some industry hot shots decided to take some hard core pot shots at me, and some vile disparaging attacks – publicly – on their various blogs.

I, of course, fought back (and won! :D) but it was brutal and disheartening but good for blog views. [The doc laughed at some of the diatribes!]

Prior to that time, I had been one of the four first “Injured Workers” “honored” in the 2014 CompLaude Awards.

David DePaolo had been very kind to me during my combat time within Workers Compensation, and he was also aghast that his colleagues could not/would not help me.

First he told me nobody would help me because ‘there’s no money in it’ [uncontested brain injury – d’oh] then he told me that ‘nobody will help you because you are too angry.’

I acknowledged how awful it must be to have to recognize that one’s peers are heartless sob’s, who would rather see an Injured Worker dead than helped if there insufficient profit margin, or too much work.  Here’s an excerpt from one of David’s articles.

 

Work Comp and Baseball

And then of course there’s the injured worker.

More often than not, of course, the injured worker gets taken care of. Yes, there are way too many cases that are wrongfully denied, where treatment is inexcusably delayed, where benefits should be provided but aren’t – but most of the time, likely far more than 80% of the time, a claim moves relatively smoothly through the process.

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.

NO!

When I told David I was going to ‘mediation’ with no lawyer, no files, no records, just an open heart and mind, he said I was crazy and could not do that.  (He had also written kindly about me that I was ‘not crazy’ but ‘passionate about civil rights and rights of injured workers.)

David lost his life in a freak incident shortly after his last blog — and nobody will ever convince me it was an accident.  David was not afraid to speak out about corruption.  Nobody has filled his shoes, but they have destroyed his legacy.

I WISH I HAD DISCOVERED the Dr. Graves LEGAL SELF HELP COURSE BACK THEN…..  AND I’M WORKING FURIOUSLY TO GET THROUGH IT NOW.  #TakeTheQuiz !  I failed with a miserable 15%.

I’ll take it again an report back once I get through the whole course.  It includes an “affiliate program” and Dr. Graves suggests gifting the course to people who need it and can’t afford it, and who can’t afford a lawyer.

Check it out….   WIN WITHOUT LAWYERS  — [Note, Disclaimer: If you buy it from my ‘affiliate link’ I’ll get a few bucks to pay for some one one one tutoring and other battle matters. I have not completed the course, but I’ve already learned a great deal. It’s very good!]  It’s a simple course, but not easy.   I truly wish I had found it decades ago.  I can hardly wait to finish the first round….

Over the battlefield, there were fake injured workers, clearly Industry Trolls, who joined in the social media attacks and stalked me on social media and infiltrated my groups.

They wanted Injured Workers to stay in misery and find no way out.

They even suggested that my recommendations for MEDIATION WITH INTENTION TO SETTLE, WITH STRUCTURED SETTLEMENT & Medicare SetAside experts– across America — was a ploy to make money.   Stupid idiots, allegedly in the ‘system’ more than 20 years, on the take, and on the dope.  Real Opiate casualties and worse.

In my efforts to help ‘coach’ injured workers, I have tried to provide thought provoking blogs and resources. At one point, I offered to publish a book of their stories, rendered anonymous, and collected about 20 of them.  Then one stupid injured worker, who allegedly ran for ‘insurance commissioner’ and her band of trolls threatened to sue me.  Ha!  Idiot didn’t know that it’s often more costly to publish a book than to profit by it.  I offered to do it with Love and my money.  After the abuse and threats, I better understood why NOBODY WANTS TO HELP INJURED WORKERS. It’s easier to dope them up and render them stupid as cash-cows.

I moved away from the efforts but still respond when Injured Workers from around the nation reach out.  Most are looking for a magic wand, that does not exist.

I have accepted countless emails and lengthy phone calls, usually thanklessly and often with threats.  One injured worker, after months of attempting to get her legit legal representation, was accepted by one of the few top brain injury lawyers in Los Angeles.  Her kids  threatened me and talked her out of using one of the best of the best lawyers California had to offer in such catastrophic cases.  I don’t know that she survived; I blocked them all upon receipt of the threat.

One injured worker was compelled to attempt suicide repeatedly due, in part, to denied medical care and horrific defense attorneys (who even complained to a Judge about lil’ ol’ me) .

When I talked with the doctor who recommended I start the MY WORK COMP COACH blog, and I told him, “Damn, this is hard.  I am not qualified to deal with suicidal, drugged people and even the kids called me and asked what to do since ‘Mom isn’t moving and we had to go to school.’   What can you do?”

I quietly said, “CALL THE POLICE AND TELL THEM WHAT’S GOING ON AND GIVE THEM PERMISSION TO KNOCK THE F—ING DOOR DOWN! DO IT RIGHT NOW.”

I will never forget his response.  He said, “WHO DO THINK YOU ARE, SISTER TERESA!?”  He muttered something I couldn’t hear about getting in a bingo group with old disabled folks.   LONG TIME WORK COMP DOC……  connect those dots, huh?

The shock on my face at his abuse must have shocked him back about his DO NO HARM oath.   The session was terminated and he sort of apologized.   I went to my car, in tears, and called a friend and said, “MOFO! I think I was just abused by the f—-king shrink!”  My friend said, “Indeed you were.”

Over the years I have encouraged Injured Workers to step outside of the hundreds of facebook little ghettos, pockets of victims of WorkComp, and I have encouraged them to create a blog and be active on social media, with an aim to GET OUT OF WORK COMP BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

I knew of maybe 3 blogs by Injured Workers; The WorkComp propaganda machinery has only about 25 —SO 25 GOONS KEEP THE AMERICAN PUBLIC BAMBOOZLED with PROPAGANDA ABOUT THE HORRORS — EXTERMINATION LEVEL HORRORS – of America’s Workers Comp system.  HIGHLY PROFITABLE.

They party like there’s no tomorrow, and to hell with injured dying workers.

Do you remember:  DEMOLITION OF WORKERS COMPENSATION: From Insult to Injury  [the 2015 investigative reporting, that even included a letter from Congress to then Department of Labor Secretary (now a hot shot in the national demon party).

At least the Canadians organize and speak out, for what it’s worth.

This year I learned that Home Owners Insurance PLAY BOOK is quite similar to WORKERS COMPENSATION Insurance playbook.

Change ‘dirty doctors’ to ‘dirty contractors’ and you know what happens next.  In my 2019 fight, a $10,000 simple roof claim has escalated to over $85,000.

I just got an estimate for $9,500 to mitigate the unmitigated water damage from February.

How’s that going to work out?

Then, in efforts to stay involved in life, on life’s terms, I decided to try another time to hire a ‘publishing consultant or coach’… and some of you on LinkedIn and Twitter already know how that’s working out….

Long story short, BE CAREFUL WHO YOU HIRE FOR CONSULTING…. I JUST LOST $397 BY AN APPARENT REAL CON ARTIST, AND BECAUSE I CHECKED THE WRONG BOX ON PAY PAL, disputing that product was not as described (I should have ticked the box, PRODUCT NOT DELIVERED) I’m having a heck of time getting a refund – I paid for 2 separate ‘coaching’ calls, 3 download pdf’s, and a 10-hour package of 1/2 hour consulting calls.

She reminded me of why they are called “con artists”… Anyway, pay pal won’t give me back the money, nor will the vendor, nor will she deliver the 10 hours package, and she and her assistant smugly think they got away with it. *

If I didn’t know better, I would suspect she’s just a #ProNuker troll,  #JustFollowing orders.  She’s probably just a common con. She seemed so nice and knowledgeable. #Next!

Awwwww, folks should always do their homework if they’re going to screw someone out of money.  The internet truly levels the battlefield, doesn’t it?  My money is gone, she even falsely tried to convince LinkedIn connections that I endorsed her product — AND I WOULD NEVER KNOWINGLY ENDORSE A CROOK OR ANYBODY SUSPECTED OF BEING A CROOK.   So, we’ll see how that plays out.

As Einstein or some smart guy once said, ‘Those who have the privilege to know have the DUTY TO ACT.”

Let it be known that I have never, will never, and DO NOT ENDORSE Deborah S. Nelson, or any of her various entities regarding #bookcoaching, nor do I believe a word of her ‘HELP ME, I’M DYING’  April 2019 GO FUND ME CAMPAIGN.

#BadJoke  Be careful of #online scammers and other unscrupulous characters. She also apparently has the #MeToo complex…. I told her I got a brain injury at work long ago, and she said, “I got one too”   — She’s an expat who apparently preys on people who want to publish books, and her tech know how is also super yesterday.

She caused a delay in time, focus and money that keeps you from reading two excellent pieces on Fukushima and GI Brains. Karma will tend to her.  I’ll do what I can to get a landing page out there so you can sign up for early notice of when the books are done.

(If you saw what she did with a perfectly fine ebook cover, you would spit, too.  The ‘replacement’ draft recommended mis-spelled INTERVIEW and FUKUSHIMA….. and looked like a child did the graphics, and left out 1/2 of the bio images, and had odd line breaks of an incomplete bio. )

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY AND PLEASE, DO NOT BELIEVE FOR A MOMENT THAT I EVER ENDORSED DREAM TO PUBLISH PRODUCTS OR COACHING by Deborah S. Nelson.   IN HER DREAMS WOULD I ENDORSE SUCH GARBAGE.  She said she prefers ‘raving fans’ but today, she and her side-kick unleashed a RAVING CRITIC.

There are some GREAT CONSULTANTS AND ‘coaches’ out there… be discerning when find them, and expose to expunge when you find the fakers — just share your experience…. and that should suffice. We’ll make and share a list of some legit coaches and programs to check out. It’s not rocket science; it’s just particularly challenging for a concussion-ist, as it deals with timing, sequence, and structures.

Vlogs – Injured Workers and Others

List of Posts – ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS

Injured Workers’ Stories Are The Same – minor differences are names, body parts and case numbers – Ask a Doctor or Lawyer for confirmation

Ask Your Injured Friends and Neighbors, too!

identify definition

“The reason you draw the reactions from these folks is not because you are being vilified, or because they have a disdain for the injured worker with a voice or any other malicious reason.”

“It is very simple – you offer nothing positive relative to change.”

“Anyone can complain. Few do anything to effectuate change.”

“Drawing attention to the negative, which you have done for the past several years, does nothing to further the conversation, offers no solutions, provides no road map.”

REALLY????

…It simply is not enough to complain. Everyone has a complaint. A complaint without a solution is bulls**t. You may as well just dig a hole and hide because no one is going to pay attention.

Everyone knows that bad sh*t happens in work comp and that there are profiteers off of the injured. That’s no secret.

So what are YOU going to do about it? …. Anonymous Industry Mouthpiece

The contempt and disdain that masks the dangers to Injured Workers by the industry profiteers is undeniable and sounds pretty darn dangerous, doesn’t it?

They ‘might be right.’

I wonder what if the 30,000 + viewers of AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com have any opinions on the foregoing statements?  If so, please tell me more at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com

Watch for future issues of MyWorkCompCoach.com for strategies on how to deal with such interactions.  Remember remember Ghandi…

‘First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then…YOUR BLOG POSTS GO VIRAL!’  – or something like that, huh?   xooxoxo

I want to find a way to propose solutions to help Injured Workers escape the WC System with their lives.  The laws are unenforced and meaningless.

I have a collection of Injured Worker stories, most of whom prefer to be Anonymous.  Watch for them.  They include, but are not limited to, in progress tragedies apparently caused by Sedgwick and others.  Most have poor-to-no legal representation, advocacy, medical care or benefits.  Yes, in America! An AMERICAN DIRTY OPEN SECRET.

Too many lawyers just make stuff up to protect profits by any means necessary. The US Constitution is mocked by the WorkCompsters, and far worse, they get away with it.  You don’t look.  You don’t care. Till you’re stuck in the box car, heading for the death camps of WorkComp.  Enough is enough.

It will require teams of mediators and structured settlement people. Would you find that of any interest? Start with a plan to release all POW’s who have been in the WorkComp System 4 or more years…..within 12 months, with the help and supervision of the National Guard.

It requires “arming ” Injured Workers with the ability to blog and share their stories, heinous as most of them are.

I am also in the process creating a course for Injured Workers to empower them with Work Comp Survival and Virtual Combat Skills!  Watch for it!

I am wondering about the possibilities of a collaborative effort and ezine and possible Tele summit to unite voice of any good people in Workers Compensation with victims of WorkComp to lead legitimate national discussions “Of the People, By the People and For the People.”

I am one voice speaking on behalf of Injured Workers. There are a few of us.

Canadians and Australians seem more vocal about the same class atrocities. Perhaps they don’t fear their governments like so many American’s do?  Has our Constitution become so meaningless that an entire industry can profit by destroying a segment of the Working Class?   ‘When they come for you, there will be no one left to speak for you…’

Most injured workers are too terrified of the WorkCompsters and their legislated fraud and surveillance and threats, compounding denied medical care and benefits.  Doesn’t that truth make you shake your head and want to shout, “NOT IN THIS COUNTRY!!!”

The Injured Worker stories are the same — minor differences are names, body parts, and case numbers.  The outcomes are much the same too…with degrees of further maligned health,  income and job losses, botched surgeries, risk/cost shifts to taxpayers via Social Security and prison systems, ETC.

Some experts insist that the best injured workers can hope for in America is social security disability and an early death.   Really, some industry investigative reporting from the dark side, huh?

Others suggest that the best American’s can hope for is a program to provide ‘food for the poor injured workers’ rather than LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR MEDICAL CARE AND BENEFITS, indictments from criminal conduct of the WorkCompsters, and the protection by the National Guard for extreme CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN EVERY STATE IN THE UNION.

NAZI HUNTER STES  5 4 2016

Congress didn’t offer assistance with food banks for poor tortured and abused Injured Workers.   Here’s the October 2015 letter where the ten signers clearly offer assistance, that could indeed come in the deployment of the National Guard, since State agencies also fail injured workers, nationally.

“….and whether added authorities are needed to better ensure that the interests of injured workers and taxpayers are protected.”

We say, keep your bags of surplus food out of the legal functioning of WorkComp…ENFORCE THE LAWS THAT ARE IN PLACE TO PROTECT INJURED WORKERS, AND INDICT THE OFFENDERS THAT READILY COMMIT FRAUD WITH INTENT TO DENY MEDICAL CARE, AND WORSE.

If the laws are unenforceable, then there is no choice but to immediately demolish the workers compensation systems and commence trials for the crimes being committed against every Injured Worker in America, and taxpayers, and employers and legitimate service providers.  You could be their next victim.

I am a work comp survivor, who was extremely unsuccessful in finding competent legal counsel.  Nevertheless, in pro per, ‘the parties reached resolution, subject to confidentiality agreement.”  #BloggersSurviveWorkComp

Doctor and Lawyer pals advised to “get out of the workers comp system by any means necessary; it will kill you.”   Some later said that in their entire careers, they never saw anybody fight so hard to survive WorkComp.

One such ‘fan’ suggested that I create a ‘coaching program.’  From that simple encouragement, I began working on a new blog, MyWorkCompCoach.com and an eCourse, Surviving Work Comp and Virtual Combat Skills on Teachable.

Personal ‘rebranding’  post-WorkComp is difficult when hearing fresh horror stories, while being continuously assaulted by industry trolls and their ilk.  It can, however, be accomplished, with a little help from our friends.

I have been a strong advocate for the CompLaude Awards 2014-2015 and I used my resources to also share in the social media communities about the recent 2016 best blogs contest.

A search of the website, AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com results in pages of and pages of posts about the Comp Laude event.  Ditto for the ‘Best Blogs’ event.  Call it ‘drivel’ if they will.  Sticks and Stones…..

We also shared news of the Sedgwick Institute Linked in group, for what it’s worth, after reading weeks before of the mega-funded SEDGWICK INSTITUTE, allegedly established to investigate the ‘issues’ of WorkComp.  Search my blogs for further info.  Google it.

I blog extensively, to the best of my abilities, as I recover from Worker’s Compensation and brain injury.  My anti-nuclear efforts have suffered tremendously due to WorkComp battles, but it has helped to see the parallels between the ‘PROFITS BEFORE LIVES’ nuclear and insurance industries, and the ‘swaths’ of 21st Century Sonderkommando.

I live near Joshua Tree National Park in California, USA. I am much nicer than I may appear in my blogs, and while my ability to speak is still impaired and challenging, I can speak but written communications are much easier for me, post-injury. If you have a story to share, send it to me.  We Are The Media Now.

Please let me know if you think there might be mutual benefit in a discussion. I have several projects on the table and it seems that the industry has amped up their propaganda blitz in a feeble effort to neutralize or mitigate the truths exposed in the 2015 Insult to Injury / Demolition of Worker’s Compensation series.

“Injured Workers without a blog are Unarmed and Unprotected In The WarOnWorkers!  #WoW”

Here are the industry’s picks of the Best Blogs of 2016.  Note the absence of Injured Worker Representation.

They all seem tasked with a propaganda launch to attempt to mitigate the truths exposed in 2015 by ProPublica and NPR efforts that just exposed the tip of the iceberg.  They are apparently having a ‘secret’ national discussion in May…. we’ll see what comes of that, won’t we.  So far, not so good in the open-ness and transparency arenas.  Attacks on Injured Workers seem to be escalating, and tales of WC Nurses posing as employees at doctors offices have been reported to be threatening, intimidating and terrorizing injured workers at doctor’s appointments.  SMH…. thinking, ‘NOT IN THIS COUNTRY!!’

InjuredWorkersUniting!  SilentNoMore!

Share the link.  We’ll create another directory with Injured Worker reviews of the accuracy of their content, in due course.

Follow them all, and search their sites to see which ones actually bother to report on WorkComp Fraud legitimately…. the carriers seem to have the most indictments, and employees weigh in at less than 1%.  Follow that money trail.

JOIN IN THE DISCUSSIONS ON LINKEDIN.…  and tell your friends and neighbors; your governments already know.

You might also peruse these blogs for some potentially inspiring thoughts for actions….  “It takes a village.”

From an Injured Worker’s Perspective – Deploy Mediation and Structured Settlement Teams to reach resolutions

“…In the meantime, I welcome your thoughts about what the SI might focus on and who might best serve as “visiting fellows” to help fullfill our plan and agenda as they evolve. Please feel free to share here….”    Chris Mandel, RF, CPCU, ARM-E  Director at the Sedgwick Institute

 

SI  GROUP RULES  4 26 2016

From an Injured Worker’s Perspective – Deploy Mediation and Structured Settlement Teams to reach resolutions

Thank you for creating this group, [Sedgwick Institute – on LinkedIn ] and for being open to participation by Injured Workers who have dodged some bullets in the system, and got out alive.

I blog, and my ‘rebranding’ blog is MyWorkCompCoach.com and my ‘screaming to the high heavens’ blog is AskAboutWorkersCompGravyTrains.com/list-of-posts/

It can be used as a study piece that this community of thought leaders may find some new perspectives and identification of issues requiring solutions and resolutions.

Professional friends, upon learning of my workplace injuries, advised ‘get out of work comp by any means necessary, it will kill you!’ Later, some of the same people, and new professionals, said they had never seen anyone fight so hard for life and exit from the system. Believe it or not, a warm and somewhat fuzzy best wishes letter even arrived from the defense.

I am currently collecting stories from other Injured Workers in hopes to present issues for the “National Discussions” that appear to be in progress.

Many of us are extremely grateful for the stellar reporting of the investigative reporters that provided America with the information in The Demolition of Workers Compensation, that may serve to save more lives. Many of us hope for an encore. I personally hope that investigative reporters will be invited into this group, and encouraged to participate and demolish the existing systems, and replace them with ones that reflect values of life, liberty, and justice for all.

I seem to ‘scare’ some people with some of my out-of-the-box ideas, but over the course of my career, prior to the workplace injury, I had also supported some very powerful captains of industry. Thinking small is not second nature to me.

I will watch and read, and practice some restraint in this group, seeing it as a huge opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of not only Injured Workers, but in the lives of providers & workers on the ‘short-end-of-the-work-comp-stick.’

    Linda AyresI welcome public or private discussions, and I can be easily reached at WorkCompLinda@gmail.com

    If you will be dividing into committees, I am a natural networker. Please let me know how I may best be of some support in identifying more of the real issues, and facilitating dialogue with injured workers in America, Canada, Australia, UK and beyond.

    It could be beneficial to set up a ways and means for WorkComp workers to chat, in a non-adversarial manner, with injured workers, not unlike programs for incarcerated members of society to have pen-pals with the ‘free world.’

    We all know some of the same people, and really, WorkComp is everybody’s business.

If you’re an Injured Worker —  use this opportunity wisely, for the greatest good for the greatest numbers of Injured Workers.  It might even help you get your case moving toward mediation and resolution.

It is my hope and prayer for each of you to find a way out of the system — it’s the only way you will survive.  There is life after the horrors of work comp.  Believe that!

HOLD ON AND LET GO!  YOU’RE NOT ALONE.  

IT WON’T BE EASY.  KEEP MOVING FORWARD!

#Blog4Freedom, Life, Liberty and Justice for All!

wc time for change

 

FURTHER ACTION:   Request to Join the Sedgwick Institute – LinkedIn Group… remember….no hitting, kicking, spitting, name calling or street talk.   These people have jobs!  If you’re a professional, join and share — you do not have the right to remain silent.

Remember, most WorkComp groups don’t want to know about Injured Workers as real people, let alone hear horror stories.  It makes them feel, and they can’t proceed, if they start to have feelings that Injured Workers are humans, being subjected to some of the most unimaginable events for the profits of the few.

One Veteran suggested, “Tell them to conduct themselves as if they are Prisoners of War. They will know what to do, and how to survive, and how escape.”

Let’s hope for a PEACE TREATY, restitution and reconciliations along with rehabilitations.

While many hope for only retribution for the offenders, let that go for now.

It’s  dangerous out there…. SURVIVE FIRST, GET OUT OF THE SYSTEM, RECOVER, THEN COME BACK AND FIGHT THAT GOOD FIGHT, PERHAPS WITH SOME ALLIES.

Maybe we will collectively witness rehabilitations and transformations.

You’ve done your time — now seek your freedom, and learn what you can to build a new life.

The Age of Information can set you free. It’s a Freedom Train….  if you case is too complex, find some help to tell the story as succinctly as possible.   You have 30 seconds to grab the attention of influencers.

Remember, everybody already knows what you have endured, and all your ‘evidence’ and medical records don’t mean much at all.

BE OPEN TO SETTLEMENT.  HAVE AN OPEN HEART, OPEN MIND, EMPTY BRIEFCASE, AND IF YOU HAVE TO DITCH YOUR ATTORNEY, DO IT, AND FIGHT FOR YOUR OWN LIFE.  THEY GET PAID ANYWAY.

FOCUS ON BEST OUTCOMES….MAKE IT A WISH LIST, PUT YOUR HEALTH AND FREEDOM FIRST.   “BELIEVE IT, AND IT IS.”
