A couple of years ago, we thought Facebook was for kids. And whoever heard of "Twitter"? Now, a day does not go by where we are not directed to "follow" someone on Twitter, get Linkedin and "Friend me" on Facebook. It's finally starting to hit home. We better get up to speed as quickly as possible. Expand or become expendable.

WITI Wealth Matters
Hiring a Financial Consultant (Part 2)
By Judi Martindale, CFP
The last article on Hiring a Financial Consultant brought a number of questions from readers so I thought I would add a few more points.
Several wanted to know how to find a financial planner locally. The first step, even before the interview, is to learn some of the jargon.
Fee-only refers to planners who do not receive any compensation from any source other than you, the client. That means there are no product sales, and no incentives such as trips or awards from investment companies.

So, in my quest to encourage you to stay vigilant and safeguard your own health and the health of the people you care about, here are some good reasons to incorporate beans into your diet/recipes at least twice per week!
According to realage. Com, "Beans not only taste good and satisfy, but also they appear to lower your risk of several types of digestive tract cancers -- including stomach cancer.

Disney Keys to Quality Service for Healthcare Professionals
October 2, 2009 • Phoenix, AZ
WITI Welcomes the Disney Institute to Honolulu, Denver and Phoenix this Fall
It doesn't take any training to recognize that the world's economy has taken a significant downturn. It does take effective and proven professional development training to guide impacted organizations back to the summit.
The Disney Keys to Excellence program and the Disney Keys to Inspiring Creativity program are rare and affordable opportunities to learn best business practices from Disney insiders, and discover ways to easily and immediately adapt and apply those best practices to pick up the pace in these slow economic times.
Organizations from across the nation and around the world have learned proven philosophies, adapted critical lessons, and implemented effective processes to reap the rewards of improvements in leadership, management, service, and brand loyalty.
Professional development doesn't cost - it pays. It pays by creating a framework of focused energy in a vacuum of uncertainty. It pays by helping an organization gain share in a slow economy. It pays because it has been proven to strengthen employee morale and retention, which will be critical to emerge from tough times.
IMPORTANT: Please use promotional code WITIPNE (or WITIMNE for Honolulu) to receive $50 OFF PER GUEST when registering. Additional group discounts are available. DOUBLE THE MAGIC: Register for both Honolulu events and receive an extra savings of $35 per event.
