Unlocking Access: Navigating Disability Planning with a Special Needs Consultant
We speak with Eric Jorgensen of True North Disability Planning about things parents need to be thinking about when preparing their disabled children for adulthood.Eric Jorgensen is the Founder of True North Disability Planning, a national consulting company helping families, individuals and professionals navigate the maze of disability benefits, resources, and services. He has been helping his clients find answers since his retirement from the Navy in 2012. He was widowed the same year he retired. At the time, his 12 y/o autistic son, William, was completely dependent on his wife for everything. His frustration with the difficulty of figuring out what to do and navigating services for his son led him to start Special Needs Navigator. Eric created a new category, Disability Planning. He specializes in helping clients identify what they do not know and providing clarity by connecting the dots. He works with people and companies around the country, developing individualized solutions best suited to their circumstances. In addition to working with clients one on one; True North Disability Planning has a Substack (Waypoints), YouTube channel, and Podcast (ABCs of Disability Planning). Eric uses Waypoints as a way to share his thoughts as a parent and a professional. The podcast and YouTube channel focus on benefits, resources, and services people may not know of or want to learn more about, or Eric thinks he can give additional perspective.

The consciousness crisis in the world and why leadership is more vital than ever. A conversation with Angilie Kapoor.

The consciousness crisis in the world and why leadership is more vital than ever. A conversation with Angilie Kapoor.
Angilie Kapoor, a highly acclaimed leader with over 20 years of experience in healthcare, is dedicated to helping managers unlock their full potential and become impactful leaders. Through her extensive background in management and leadership, she offers invaluable knowledge and insights gained from her own journey. Angilie is the founder of Oversight Global, an organization dedicated to addressing the consciousness crisis in the world one leader at a time. Her mission is to educate and empower aspiring leaders, enabling them to make a significant impact on the world. We face a systemic issue that runs rampant in all spheres of leadership: governments, businesses, schools, and even in religious institutions. Our various leaders in various sectors for whatever reason, have become more focused on collecting obedient followers and/or advancing their own agendas rather than being concerned about empowering individuals to grow and become the leaders they are meant to be.  In this very moment, we are plagued by a lack of self-awareness, self-knowledge, and an apathy towards understanding who we truly are, our values and priorities. As we have grown disconnected from our true selves and our core values, it seems that we have lost the very essence that once brought us together as communities and even as nations. #consciousnesscrisis #leadershipcrisis #systemicissue #empoweringindividuals #selfawareness #selfknowledge #apathy #values #priorities #disconnected #essence #communities #nations #awareness #transformation #mindfulness #personaldevelopment #positivity #selfgrowth #collectivegrowth #togetherness #unity #harmony Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/oversightglobal1356/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oversightglobal LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/oversight-global-llc/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/@oversightglobal Author Central: https://www.amazon.com/author/angiliemkapoor Website: https://www.oversightglobal.comhttps://54MediaGroup.com
