Steve Schwab: Breaking News! VA Secretary calls for thorough review of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Program for Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers
SPECIAL EPISODE. Many of you have heard me talk about the disappointment with the way the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has removed thousands of long term Military Veteran Caregivers who care for our wounded, ill and injured service members from their program.

I've received many messages and calls from caregivers over the last few months asking for my guidance or just someone to talk to.  As you know, I was chosen in 2015-2016 to serve as an Elizabeth Dole Foundation Fellow, representing the State of Florida and 5.5 million Military Veteran Caregivers Nationwide. I am now an Alumni Member of EDF and continue to advocate for our Nation's Heroes and Caregivers as I am able.    ***Thursday, February 18, 2021  we had a small victory. The VA Secretary called for a thorough review of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Program for Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC).  I interviewed Steve Schwab from The Elizabeth Dole Foundation to discuss the major changes in the military veteran caregiver program at the VA. We also talk about the different services The Elizabeth Dole Foundation offers military veteran caregivers in the form of everything from financial support to respite, education and more.  Visit The Elizabeth Dole Foundation Website: www.elizabethdolefoundation.org  Email Steve: Steve@elizabethdolefoundation.org  Patti's Website: www.PattiKatter.com

HE REALIZED THAT NO MATTER HOW QUICKLY HE WORKED, HE COULDN'T GET EVERYTHING DONE.

Sunil Godse: Understanding Your Intuition & Listening To Your Gut
Join Patti Katter and her guest, Sunil Godse, as they talk about understanding your intuition and listening to your gut. Sunil is the owner and teacher at Intuitionology, he helps businesses increase their productivity by using intuitive resonance to build trusted professional relationships! He is also the author of the amazing books Fail Fast, Succeed Faster and GUT! In this episode, you’ll learn: · The importance of trusting your intuition and listening to your gut feelings. · Your intuition and all those experiences to learn from will be put into the subconscious area of your brain. · There are four types of intuition that all work at the same time. · You need to overcome the fear associated with what your intuition is telling you to do. · There are a lot of signals you need to consider before making important decisions. · Four intuitive hurdles that get people in trouble and interfere with your signals. · And much more! ~ About Sunil Godse: The statistics companies face are very stark with 80% of employees unhappy in the workplace, resulting in $550 billion a year in lost productivity resulting in much higher internal costs, and if not fixed, the results could be fatal. The reason? Companies seem to treat their employees as numbers where transactional relationships and a heavy focus on short term results engulf the corporate culture. It comes as no surprise to anyone when such a corporate culture has employees feeling disengaged and demotivated in the workplace, negatively affecting the overall productivity with downstream effects being higher turnover as valuable employees look elsewhere to find companies who actually care for them. If this is not fixed quickly, this starts to put a tremendous squeeze on profits, putting the company on a downward spiral, and it could end up becoming a part of the 99% that are no longer around by year five. The good news is that this can be prevented by ensuring that management learns how to implement intuitive resonance within the organization to establish trusted relationships with its employees, creating a tight-knit corporate culture that has employees intrinsically motivated to perform at their highest level. The cumulative effect translates to an immediate increase in productivity with longer-term effects being lower turnover costs and higher profits, a combination Sunil Godse is used to seeing as he grew several entrepreneurial ventures to over $20 million before helping many other companies accelerate the productivity of their employees, elevating their business success to a whole new level.

Coming from an entrepreneurial family, business is in his blood. He joined the family business in 2005 as a laborer, and over the years worked his way up through the ranks. First entering the office environment in 2006 as an admin assistant, within 12 months he was running the entire purchasing department for the business. He went on to manage the company manufacturing facility alongside his purchasing role and was officially made a director in 2012. After handing over the manufacturing facility, he moved on to managing the multiple contracts and sites operated by the business all over the world.​ In 2015, he hired his first business mentor and together with his fellow directors created explosive growth that saw their sales more than double from £2.2m to £4.5m in the short space of just 12 months, which saw Jamie leading a team of 60 and being promoted to Managing Director in December 2016. He was the driving force behind creating the systems needed to thrive as a business, and during his time with the company built many departments from scratch, including completely re-structuring the business in January 2017 to install the solid foundations that were needed to ease their growing pains, and ensure a financially healthy business. He didn’t always see eye-to-eye with his co-directors, and he knows first hand how challenging it can be to navigate family dynamics alongside all the other challenges that come with being in business.​ He chose to exit the business in December 2017 realizing he had taken it as far as he could and it was time for a change; this was one of the best decisions he has ever made, and in January 2018, the first iteration of Bulletproof Business was born. Jamie had started doing some freelance consultancy working with other business owners on their business strategy throughout 2017 and hasn’t looked back. Since then he’s worked with scores of businesses across the UK helping start-ups find their feet in getting established, working closely with early-stage businesses to accelerate growth, and delivering specialist consulting for established 6/7-figure companies across multiple sectors to create high performance, profitable operations with a focus on financial management, project management, and growth strategy. Jamie is results-focused, and his core values of integrity, honesty, and operational excellence are reflected in every aspect of his work.

Before late march of 2020, Dom lived his life in an extremely athletic manner. He was at the gym every day, sometimes even multiple times a day. He prioritized his fitness because he wanted to stay healthy, and because his job as a law enforcement officer requires a high level of fitness. Staying fit and healthy could literally be the difference between life and death in his profession. This was an important aspect of his life. Another thing that Dom has always prioritized is family, he has always been better at this than me. He is quite literally the definition of a family man. When he wasn’t spending time with family, he was with good and loyal friends. Most of those friends being law enforcement buddies, but also a few really good childhood friends too. Dom was extremely social and loved to be around friends and family. He has always been very protective of us and would literally do anything for the people that he loves. I will also say that my brother has been through a lot over the last 3-4 years. He has seen the worst of people through his job. He has been shot at, been in a dangerous vehicle pursuit that ended in a crash, and has witnessed many things that no one should ever have to as a police officer. March of 2020 brought him and our family another traumatic incident to add to the list. Dom is older than me by about 5 years. However, I often assume the caretaker role with him (and everyone else in my life). This is exactly what happened when he contracted COVID-19 in late March of 2020. At this time, I was working in EMS for an ambulance company out in Salt Lake City. COVID was new to the U.S. and we didn’t know much about it. I was starting to get patients on my ambulance who were positive for the virus, but were stable. That week, my brother had told me he thought he had the virus because he felt the sickest he had ever felt before. He told me that he didn’t know how to explain what it felt like, the closest thing he could relate it to was “a really bad flu”.
