How to Help Grow Your Children’s Education Nest Egg? Being a Children’s Education Funds Inc. (CEFI) Dealing Representative: How It Can Satisfy Your Inner Entrepreneur. Merriam-Webster defines entrepreneur as: “one who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise.” It’s come to mean someone who’s a go-getter, a visionary, independent and creative, an innovator. All of these characteristics and qualities can have their appeal. Individually, maybe. But many would-be entrepreneurs get lost at “innovate.” How can you be an entrepreneur if you really don’t think your ideas are all that novel? There are ways, however, that you can indulge your inner entrepreneur within an established organization, win the rewards your hard work earns you without having to put your assets (and others’) at risk, and enjoy your independence without having to sacrifice the support structures that help you stay on top of your game.

The ability to achieve this kind of balancing act is what draws many to a career as a Children’s Education Funds Inc. CEFI Dealing Representatives help families set up RESPs. Here are four that are most important for success. How Parents Can Help Children Realize Career Goals – Henry M Blog.

This Report on Helius Medical Tech Threatens Treatment for Cerebral Palsy (T.HSM) I am writing to express my disbelief at the recklessness of Mackie’s November 9th research piece, written by Andre Uddin, on Helius Medical Technologies (HSM/HSDT). Helius Medical is a U.S. company pioneering development of a portable neurostimulation device (PoNS) which is showing dramatic promise to significantly improve outcomes of children and adults with brain injury and brain disease, conditions which, until now, have had little to no hope for meaningful improvement.

In particular, the PoNS device appears to be an effective treatment for improving gait and balance deficits. In short, it appears to improve ability to walk in people with brain injuries. I am the mother of a young boy, who has severe cerebral palsy as the result of a compressed umbilical cord at birth resulting in significant oxygen deprivation. Cerebral palsy is an umbrella term for a movement disorder which originates as the result of brain injury.

How to Identify and Address Skills Gaps – Connor Ren.

Skills gaps can be one of the most significant obstacles to ensuring an organization attains its goals and fulfill its mission. If staff does not have the skills they need to deliver the results, that of course makes it difficult for an organization to achieve its current goal and to grow and adapt to changing markets and environments. From my experience, however, there are ways to identify knowledge or skills gaps and implement efficient methods to address them. The Importance of Assessment In assessing the knowledge and abilities of your current team, it is important to consider your organization’s current and future needs.

It is also important to understand that some team members may find it difficult to self-assess and, as such, feedback from other team members and third parties should be included in the assessment. A Look at Training and Development Investing in the right kinds of training and development for your team is equally important as the assessment. [Interview]Ed Rempel,Certified Financial Planner - From Ed Rempel’s perspective, there’s way too much conventional wisdom out there when it comes to financial and investment matters, and way too many people both spout it and buy into it. It’s a problem that can cause consumers to be unprepared financially to handle the roadblocks that life can throw their way, he says. That’s in part because conventional wisdom is not necessarily the most up-to-date or accurate information to rely on.

Ed Rempel has been countering financial conventions at least since he hung up his professional shingle as a Toronto-based certified financial planner in 1993. His aim, then as now, is to help Canadians understand that real financial planning goes beyond telling clients to get into investment products because they are hot or highly touted by the financial press. What conventional wisdom does he particularly warn against? One piece comes from experts who tout a correlation between the economy’s performance and what it spells for the stock market.

The workplace is rapidly evolving and it’s more important than ever to ensure your employees are content. A happy employee, after all, is a more productive employee. Research has proven that when staff is actively engaged in their work, companies benefit as workers accomplish more and perform more effectively. They are also more likely to come up with innovative solutions to problems, as they feel personally invested in the organization’s success. So, the question for employers is how do you keep your workforce engaged so they give you their best effort? One answer is to strive to be a conscious leader, one who inspires their employees to go above and beyond average effort to exceeding expectations every time.

Before you can be a conscious leader, you need to understand the concept. In short, conscious leaders know and understand that the whole is more than the sum of its parts. Not every executive is a conscious leader, but with practice, they can transform themselves into one. Looking at Five Inherent Traits of Strong Leaders | YOU And YOUR MONEY® Why is one nation’s head of state well-regarded for his positive energy and ability to inspire his countrymen, while another’s leader embraces discord and divisiveness? Why is one company’s CEO known for her creative mind, but an abrasive management style that holds the organization back, while another’s passion and decisiveness move his people to embrace positive change? Not every leader is a good one, and even those who have some of the requisite characteristics for greatness may not have them in sufficient balance to truly earn them the sobriquet of “great.”

Mountains of content have been written about what the best leaders look like and the hard skills and soft ones that they are either born with or develop to achieve leadership success. Of course, there are learned skills, acquired through education and experience – from finance and business operations to the ability to speak a foreign language. . · Positive energy. . · The ability to energize others. . · Decisiveness. . · Passion.

When Zabeen Hirji shifted into RBC’s HR department in 1997, she says she only expected to be there for a few years. Twenty years on, she’s now recognized as one of the industry’s leading champions of diversity and inclusion, and credited with driving the bank’s focus on human capital management, which has made it an award-winning employer. Hirji will retire from RBC in October after a 40-year career that began as a teller, before moving into senior leadership, with the past 10 years spent as the bank’s global chief human resources officer.

She received the Ivey Business School Award for Lifetime Achievement in the HR Industry at Thursday’s HR Awards. Accepting her award, Hirji told 600 attendees that when she moved into HR, she only expected to be there a brief time but discovered her “sweet spot”, where she could help staff thrive, and, in turn, drive customer value and business growth. “This is a very exciting time to be in HR,” she said.
