Janet C.Scott, an attorney with Alexander & Associates, where she practices education and employment law, is with us today to talk about the Georgia Association of Black Women Attorneys.
The Georgia Association of Black Women Attorneys (GABWA) and its charitable arm, the GABWA Foundation, will host a four-day event entitled “GABWA Celebrates a Marquee Legacy of Service and Leadership” in Atlanta on July 21-July 24 in honor of its 30th anniversary. Since it was founded by Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears (Ret.), Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane and Judge Barbara A. Harris, GABWA has grown to represent more than 2,000 legal professionals in the state, award over $150,000 in scholarships to black female law students and expand access to legal education and services through its community partnerships and outreach.
On Monday, June 22nd, the Mobile Technology Association of Michigan will launch the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council with a mission ‘to support women through access to educational forums, networking, mentoring, technical training, resources, scholarships, and more, with a primary focus on professional women currently working with, or interested in working with, these technologies in any industry.
With a lack of mobile/wireless tech-trained talent available, and universities unable to turn out trained graduates fast enough to meet the demands of Michigan-based firms and branches of national and international firms located here, identifying ways to engage more women in the space as a potential solution to this staffing shortage is an area of focus by a wide variety of regional employer groups, educational institutions, economic development organizations, and non-profits. The Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council will be the resource to pull together the various stakeholders and resources focused on this issue to connect talent, interest and opportunity.
The launch of the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council will feature an incredible panel of women leaders in the mobile/wireless tech space from a cross-section of industries to address this topic, as well as discuss their own journey's to achieving success in this field. Join host Melissa Birnie and guest, Linda Daichendt, MTAM Exeutive Director, to learn more about the Women in Mobile Tech Advisory Council, what you can expect to learn at the launch event, and what this Council expects to do for women in Michigan to enable them to utilize these technologies for career/business growth.

CORRUPT GA LAWYERS NO LONGER CHASE AMBULANCE: CITIZEN WARRANTS IS THE NEW TOOL. A WORD FROM ATTORNEY SHERRI JEFFERSON
This episode will discuss how Georgia lawyers are continuing to engage in fraud, abuse and violate the civil and constitutional rights of private citizens by abusing the use of private citizen warrants and subjecting innocent people to arrest to gain leverage in civil legal matters.
After 25 years of defrauding the auto insurance companies and the government via Medicaid and healthcare; "Runners" have worked for attorneys to commit abuse, fraud and illegal practices before either the State Bar of Georgia, law enforcement or the Georgia General Assembly acted to stop the illegal and unethical practice of ambulance chasing.
In 2014, the Georgia politicians amended O.C.G.A. § 33-24-53, which targeted attorneys and medical professionals who purchase and sell accident reports as a means to exploit victims. Unscrupulous attorneys and doctors use these reports to obtain personal contact information of accident victims and their families, and then directly contact these victims in their homes, hospital rooms and by telephone in an unlawful attempt to procure new clientele.
NOW, the "lawyers" are targeting new clientele by use of private citizen warrants, which authorizes private citizens to initiate criminal charges against other citizens without law enforcement. The attorneys are using these tactics to gain leverage in settlement or to intimidate citizens to cooperate in civil legal matters.
How many years before the State Bar of Georgia, law enforcement and the General Assembly will stop this practice by amending OCGA 17-4-40, which authorizes this practice.
Repeal Private Citizen Warrants Campaign (OCGA 17-4-40) to raise public awareness, empower victims, and effectuate change.

Carol J. Matthews-Shifflett, MA
Executive Director of the Sojourner Group, Salt Lake City, Utah. Ms. Shifflett has a Bachelors Degree in Cultural Anthropology and earned her Masters Degree in Community Leadership. After returning to college as a non-traditional student, Carol has been a proponent of empowering women and encouraging them to reach their highest potential. As the former Volunteer Coordinator for the YWCA, Salt Lake City, her career interest took on the direction of advocating for women in violent relationships. For the past 15 years she has been drawn to personal conversations with marginalized women of the African and Black Diaspora who often suffer in silence due to lack of cultural understanding from mainstream service providers. Carol has since been zealous in working to ensuring that Black women in Utah find their voices. As an active community leader, she firmly believes that leadership is not an individual venture, but one that involves a collective group of persons and personalities with a common goal of working for the good of the cause. Her chief principles are respect, integrity, communication, and commitment. It is with these qualities that she believes we can all collectively serve marginalized populations who have been victimized by sexual assault and domestic violence, improve the quality of their lives, and assist them on the journey of healthier lifestyles and families.
So, I'm checking out some old shows, and forget what I'm doing, and forget I'm listening to the show, and so I listen as a listener - WOW! I says to me, I says - what the hell???? I'm laughing my ass off - (so you know I can't sit down now, because there is a blotch where my ass use to be)
Man this show is funny. Can you believe some of the stuff we say? They are ridiculously ridiculous. They are stupidly stupid, and informatively informative - we are to the extreme. You will learn to love us.
Stillwater, MN – The decision to give up the lifestyle of addiction and enter recovery can be tremendously fearful and isolating, like moving away from home and never speaking to anyone again. Everyone has their own path to recovery, but with the help of a recovery coach, you can develop strategies to successfully navigate the transition to sobriety
A recovery coach is a certified non-clinical professional that supports you as you begin a new life without substance abuse. Jill Orhn is a recovery coach and the founder of Jill Orhn Recovery Coaching, where she helps women who are considering treatment or have recently left treatment to build a new vision for their lives. Jill supports women in transition who feel lost or hopeless or believe they don’t have anyone to support them.
“A recovery coach helps to keep you on the path to stay sober by teaching day-to-day skills and establishing new routines,” says Jill. “We take away the shame and the stigma of being alcoholic or an addict and the idea that this is who you are for life.
Jill helps her clients to recognize what areas in their life they need to find balance and how to recognize the negative thinking and triggers that can compromise sobriety.
“I’m there to help them take that next step, whatever that step may be, and that applies to recovery or any kind of transition,” says Jill.
Jill understands where her clients have been but also serves as a living example that life can get better and will. She and her clients work together to develop an action plan to start your recovery and help keep you in recovery.
“Let’s take away the stigma and help people get sober in a way that works for them,” says Jill.

Organization isn’t just blocking out the clutter in your workspace but also blocking out the clutter in your mental state. All too often we are quick to grab a tool, filing system or look for some quick fix. We don’t take enough thinking time to organize our thoughts and gain clarity around what drives us mentally so we can set up our environment to support that.
Todays takeaways will be 5 steps of organizing any space.
