New Post on EmpowermentCoachnet on Facebook

There is a new post on the Facebook page, EmpowermentCoachNet.  The post deals with empowerment and disempowerment and focuses especially on the disempowerment of senior citizens.

The post goes on to introduce the workshop JoelMonty.com hosted in August, 2013, “Take Charge of Your Moods”.  The workshop was received succssfully, though the time-frame for the workshop (2 hours) was not enough to build a solid skill base.

The workshop can be re-offered this summer (2014) in a longer format and, possibly, online to increase access and decrease expenses.

Check-out the post.

Expand Memory and Recall–New Workshop

Expand-memory-and-recall-questions

 

 

Joel is finishing the development of a new workshop to Expand Memory and Recall.  The initial workshop will be for 12 people who will receive preferred pricing for the workshop in return for their participation in the case study being run for the workshop.  Ideal candidates will be preparing for some kind of major exam (nursing “boards”, law “boards”, doctor “boards”, teacher certification, and college boards.  A second workshop is planned for students in K-12 schools.  The workshop will run for four hours (approximately) and the investment at preferred pricing is $125 per person.

Times-They Are A Changing

We often look to disposable income to pay for support for learning and change.  Learning and change are to improve the quality of our lives (and businesses).  We seem to rely on basic funding to maintain the status quo–the way we are now–and look to “extra” funding to pay for growth (support for learning and change).

An Internet Marketer was speaking with me the other day about an education program she was offering.  She mentioned that some people invested their last dollar in a similar program and achieved great rewards and success by participating.

I know those stories, too.  Many people do that and are quite successful.

We live in interesting times.  I’m not sure that the global market an Internet Marketer is counting on really exists in quantity today.  Of course, some people have money to invest–probably fewer people and less money than in prior years.  I love Internet Marketing.  I believe that the Internet is the place to expand my Learning and Change Marketplace.  While people in my neighborhood may not be ready for support for learning and change, others are around the world.  Using today’s technology for telecommunications, I can provide learning and change navigation and coaching virtually around the world.  My experience and expertise in creating and facilitating learning programs around the world will help me when I do global online workshops (webinars) from my living room.

I’m a Baby Boomer.  I had a career in the U.S. Army for ten years and have been a learning and change navigator for 40+ more years.  I have a service-connected disability which qualifies me for some VA benefits and I’ve worked long enough to quality for Social Security benefits.  I’m also old enough to qualify for Medicare benefits I’ve been paying into for years.  I count on all of that income as part of my retirement income.  Now I am looking to leverage the Internet into a place where I can make a difference and continue to produce an income stream that will help me enjoy my “retirement.”  (That probably translates to enjoy doing what I love to do, making a positive difference, and generating the income I want at the same time.  “Retirement” doesn’t really come into it too much.)

The US Congress needs to raise the debt ceiling that’s in place today in order for the government to meet its obligations to me in terms of VA Benefits, Social Security, and Medicare.  Those are critical components of my income and the people I pay my bills to are not going to be happy if they don’t get their payments in November because the government has stopped paying me.  I’m one of millions in the same boat.

I’m also a firm believer in the “Law of Attraction” and in abundance.  (I even facilitate programs in that area.)  That’s coming forward as an adjunct to the government funding I receive.

That will be a part of the learning and change navigation and coaching services I provide my clients.  We need to learn and to change together to align ourselves positively with the “Law of Attraction” and to open ourselves to the abundance present in the universe.  This can certainly happen quickly, though usually in its own timing.

What are you doing to create a secure source of income as you move to the age to qualify for government programs such as Social Security and Medicare?  What support do you have for the learning and change required to transition from what you’re doing now to something new you need to do to generate ongoing income for those “retirement” years?

Back to the original concept.  This may be a time when you need to expand beyond the concept of using only disposable income to pay for support for learning and change.  The need for learning and change is upon us.  The U.S. Congress is just giving us a highlighted snapshot of that need.

Want to join me in creating a Law of Attraction Mastermind group?  How else can I help you in your learning and change journey to a more secure and more enjoyable future?

Let me know.  Comment on this post or send me an email at joelmonty@joelmonty.com.

JoelMonty-com Booth at Fox Valley Holistic Health Celebration 2013

We had a booth for the second year at the Fox Valley Holistic Health Celebration (HHC) 2013.  This year the booth was to showcase JoelMonty.com.  Somehow the listing carried over from the year before (on the maps to the “booths”) as the IntegrativeLearningAndHealingCenter.org.  (Both of these are part of https://www.JoelMonty.net).

Thanks to all our friends who visited the booth this year.  Linda even helped put up the light blue “sidewalls” you see in the background.  The wind was gusty enough that all my signage had to move to the ground.  (Our booth was number 52 this year–tied to electricity though we didn’t use it as much as we did last year.)

We were also promoting the Take Charge of Your Moods workshop being offered next Sunday, Oct. 6, from 2 to 4 PM in the Healing Room at Soup to Nuts Alternative Grocery (716 W.

Take Charge of Your Moods Workshop Well Received

The first offering of the 90-minute “Take Charge of Your Moods:  From Chaos to Calm in Just Seconds” workshop was well received by participants at the Living Well Cancer Resource Center in Geneva, IL (http://www.livingwellcrc.org) on Thursday, August 29, 2013.

The workshop ran for 86 minutes, with four minutes for completion of the feedback form.  Here is some of the feedback:

Workshop Feedback

What did you find to be the most valuable learning from the workshop?

  • (Take Charge of Mood anchor)-#2 (anger), #3 (neutral), #4 (calm & resource)–Great seminar, very resourceful–can us it–anyone, anywhere, everywhere, perfect 🙂
  • Using touch to anchor–back of hand (#4), 3 fingers together (#1)
  • My Anchor map
  • Anchor point exercise
  • The anchor chain–#2, #3, #4 (Take Charge of Mood Anchor)
  • To go to a peaceful, comfortable place
  • Moving from a negative emotion to positive calm by using anchors
  • You are (I am) in charge of your (my) “moods”
  • How to transform from angry mood to neutral to calm (Take Charge of Mood anchor)–Hope it works.
  • Really liked the Circle of Excellence (#1)–Glad you switched 🙂 (It replaced another anchor in this workshop)
  • Practical ways to change from anger to calm
  • 1-2-3 change moods (Take Charge of Moods anchor)
  • The anchor process seems very powerful
  • Assigning physical body parts w/ our anchors–it’s an easy way to remember our moods in everyday life.
  • “Anchors” are a helpful concept for me.

General feedback on the workshop:

  • Thank you–really powerful.  It can be used in so many places and in so many ways to help so many.
  • I feel calmer at the end of the workshop than when I walked in.
  • I really liked the breathing and how to gain calm through the (My) Anchor map.
  • Helpful, generous with information–(navigator’s) calm demeanor
  • A lot of material was provided in a short period of time.  It was very helpful for me because you used anger as the example.
  • This was an excellent workshop.  The navigator was very knowledgeable.
  • New information!  I’ll have to practice in order to integrate it.
  • He (navigator) was very understandable and it was very worth while.
  • I liked the practical experiences.
  • I enjoyed the partner stuff (exercises in creating anchors).
  • It was a good workshop.  I do think it would be fun to learn more techniques in the future. (More workshops are planned, covering different techniques)
