Often what stops us are the beliefs that we hold about what is possible that may limit what we are capable of accomplishing. In addition, we may lack the key strategies necessary to achieve the success we desire. In this well designed and empowering experience, we recognize that when we tap into our full potential, learn key strategies, and adapt new beliefs about what we are capable of accomplishing, we can dramatically improve our results and “break through” to what we want to achieve. What we thought might be difficult becomes easy. In the fast paced, high demand world of balancing our business and professional lives, we need tools that that help us more quickly and easily achieve what we desire. The powerful tools and skills from this exercise will provide an invaluable reference that can be used to accomplish even more of what we want while remaining empowered and energized.

– The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.Vaccines save lives by preventing disease. A majority of people who receive vaccines have no serious problems. However, vaccines, like all medicines, are not risk free, and sometimes these same, well-known vaccinations can cause side effects or adverse reactions, in certain cases with life-threatening consequences. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was created as a no-fault alternative to the traditional tort remedy of suing the physician and/or drug manufacturer for damages sustained as a result of the adverse reaction. In this discussion, we will cover the framework and requirements of the VICP, who may receive benefits and how the VICP works, and some of the myths and truths about vaccines and the VICP that have been so prominent in the news lately.

A large part of these forms consist of “standard” provisions which are utilized in virtually every trust agreement, often referred to as “boilerplate.” What tends to be overlooked, however, is that these “standard” provisions address very important aspects of trust administration, and the failure to rethink the provisions may produce unexpected, and undesirable, results. This presentation will consider many of these provisions, as impacted by changing law and circumstances, and discuss alternatives that should be considered.
