Linda Hanson Join the Kansas City Chiefs Cheerleaders, The United Steel Workers Union and Remax Realty, who are just a few of the organizations who have benefitted from our R.E.A.C.T. Seminars R.E.A.C.T. - Respond. Evade. Anticipate. Corporate Training The well-being of employees should be the top priority for any company large or small. Ensuring the people who work for you are safe at work, at home and going back and forth from both is the first step to increasing morale and productivity. We see a remarkable difference in participants who attend our seminars. Their feelings of confidence are evident in the way they walk and carry themselves. When participants feel confident it translates directly to feeling safe in the work place, at home and during times when commuting to and from work. Having employees who feel safe at work decreases the occurrences of absenteeism and tardiness, brings about a more stress-free environment at work and therefore the general well-being and camaraderie of the company increases, directly affecting your bottom line. R.E.A.C.T. has created a unique approach to self-defense. We begin by teaching awareness of surroundings and situations that a person can take to greatly reduce the probability that violence will occur. Second, it teaches alertness skills which allow a person to spot potential trouble before it can fully develop. Third, it teaches negotiation skills that can be used to defuse a possible assault. Fourth, it teaches how to evade an attacker, and finally, it teaches a unique multi-level conceptual approach to self-defense, which enables a person to respond effectively, and with a minimum of force, when an assault can't be avoided. Again, the emphasis is always upon avoidance because this offers the safest and most sure way of dealing with any threat. While it is true that there are many narratives in the media about mass shooting in the work place, and intruder alert drills are required by most companies, the reality is that with over 45,413,092 companies in the US the probability of that type of violence coming to your business is unlikely. However according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence 2012 Survey, 40,645 incidents of domestic violence were reported in Missouri alone - over 10 Million reports nationwide. It is not just the threat of violence against your employees in the work place that is a concern but also their mental attitude and welfare. When an employee feels insecure in the work place their productivity is directly affected. You should make a decision today that will positively affect the lives of your employees. Giving your personnel an opportunity to learn self-defense tactics that will build camaraderie, develop confidence, enhance productivity and increase moral.

    Stacy Savage Hi Folks, I am working with a for-profit consortium of entrepreneurs focused on helping businesses reduce wastes and recycle more materials. In addressing common headaches, such as overflowing dumpsters, missed pickups, and foul odors, businesses can experience up to 25% in cost savings. We are asking business owners/managers to join us in a beta test for “right-sizing” the company’s dumpsters (in-person or virtually for Dallas and Austin businesses, virtually only if outside those areas). By providing billing data and tracking of levels in receptacles, we can work together to discover operational efficiencies by optimizing bin space and adjusting frequency of pickup. At the end of this beta test, there will be an opportunity to take advantage of an offer from us to draft a letter of authorization to renegotiate your company’s trash and recycling contract(s) to ensure “right-sized” and "right-timed" services. If your company decides to accept our offer, payment for services will come from a percentage of the savings with no out-of-pocket costs. If you or someone you know is interested in participating, please contact me: 512-693-7677 or Stacy@0waste.org www.0waste.org

    Judith ("Judi") Lawrence Hi Ladies in Austin: So one might wonder, why is a notary company located in Pennsylvania writing to people based in Austin? The answer is simple … we want to help any of your Pennsylvania clients. We offer 24/7/365 Notary Services including weekends and holidays. One of the most important ways we can assist you is if you have a client who is vacationing or traveling in Pennsylvania and needs to close on an agreement or a property back in Austin. You would just call Center City Notary at 215-870-3103 and ask us about our “Power Closing”. Our expert notaries will make sure the documents are signed and properly notarized. We will then scan the documents and email them to whomever you designate back in Austin. That will include a Power of Attorney so that a representative can handle the closing. Important to note that the Power of Attorney is specific to the precise closing and cannot be used for anything else. The documents can then be overnighted. This can be done at our location or at a location of your choice. We also handle Apostilles nationwide which you can read about on our website. In addition, please check out our website for other services including, but not limited to, I-9 Verifications, Contracts and Deeds. . Please feel free to message me for further information or just to say hi. Judith
