What Do We Need

2012 came to an end,
with so many people whose lives stopped dead-end.

alive or dead, because for one it doesn't even matter. if you need help im talking about the latter.
see you alive, this gift we got, this year three people died, i seen at their spot.

for 2013 im going to call you out. we gonna figure this route.  Roadmarkers laid already pave the way, minorities before me all say "Hooray!  Our fight still today"
When I see you succeed it calms my Native blood.  Happy 2013.

How Do You Make Money as a Caregiver?

As a 5star, retired caregiver(momentarily), the persuasion of the industry has never been to make a million dollars.  So why are we frustrated when caregiving capabilities reach their momentary maximum capacity?

Again, I have taken care of Generals, retired-athletes, mob mafiosos, sons of military nobility and more.  We see glimpses of their life on the deep end of a diving board.  Any further and we are no longer needed, so we hold as long as possible, for them it must always be for them.

They ask you questions like,"Do you think Dad's gonna die today?"  To which the reply is always the same.  You excel at remaining calm during moments of uncertainty.

So if you want to make money as a caregiver, don't be one.  But since I care about you as a caregiver let me give you ten steps to making guap.

1.  Excel at something like wound-care, nail-care, hair cutting for alzheimer's, giving showers, laundering soiled clothing, fixing hospital beds, repairing walkers, wheelchairs.
2.  Learn something about the vision industry, because if you're reading this, it's obvious you're good, but learn about magnification, bugs eyes, talking watches, setting up software for vision impaired seniors, phones with big buttons, remotes with big buttons, keyboards, need I say more.  If you speak a foreign language, use it to get paid.
3.  If you take care of an old person, make sure their underwear/depends are never soiled.  Use a schedule with their permission or make sure you check as much as possible and document the times you checked for your clients. 
4.  Get a Master's degree, work as a caregiver for someone else and hire someone to care for your loved one.  Study while you work at night.  Research shows we care better for strangers, and please don't make me get the research which I posted a while back.
5.   Don't have kids until your ready!
6.  Have your parents create a living will, or hire someone to do it.  With all my resources, If you need me to do it, we got you.  Just stay tuned.  Don't drop me an email.  Wait for me, don't create your living will until we walk through it together.  If you need it now, I can't help you,
7.  Master social media so when you become a manager, you won't look like an ancient rock to your employees.  If you think you're too old to change, you're not alone!  Make friends and have fun with the billions of dollars and thousands of jobs created by the digital social media industry, which is in its infancy stages in my opinion.
8.  Move to where you have to move.  Life is short, our baby-boomer generation lived half of their lives away from their families.  Our pioneers left the East, in search of expansion and conquest.  Be where you are appreciated, not tolerated.
9.  Sometimes your enemies are not people, but against principalities.  Sometimes those people just gave up, avoid them.
10. Be a workaholic, work three jobs, move as often as you have to, but only for as many seasons your plan calls for.  Sometimes, you put all your eggs in one basket, and then your protect that basket until that basket is no longer needed.

If you're taking care of your loved family member, stay tuned, I have a whole crew of PhD students, masters of Gerontology and the Cities of Boston and Baltimore behind me, may my curtains always remain open in business. 

Why do I care?  I still am learning why.

I'm tired

It is the great multiplication of the productions of all the different arts, in consequence of the division of labor-which in a well-governed society, that universal opulence which extends itself to the lowest ranks of the people.

Every workman has a great quantity and capacity of his own work to dispose of, beyond what he himself has use for and every other workman being exactly in the same situation, he is enabled to exchange a great quantity of his own goods for a greater quantity, or what comes to the same thing, for a price for a great quantity of theirs. 

He supplies them abundantly with what they have use for and they accommodate him as amply with what he has use for  and they accommodate him as amply with what he has use for.  And a general plenty diffuses itself through all the different land.

Now-observe the accommodation of the most common day laborer in a thriving country and you will see that the number of people of whose industry, has been employed in providing the day laborer this accommodation exceeds all computation.

The woolen coat, which covers the day laborer, as coarse and rough as it may appear, is the produce of the joint labor of a great multitude of workman.  The shepherd, the sorter of the wool, the wool comber, the dyer, the scribbler, the spinner, the weaver, the fuller, the dresser, must all join in their different arts in order to complete even this homely production.

How many merchants and carriers must have been employed in transporting the materials.  How much commerce and navigation, how many ship builders, sailors, sail makers, rope makers, must have been employed in order to bring together the different drugs made use of, by the dyer.  To say nothing of such complicated machines as the ship of the sailor, the mill of the fuller, the loom of the weaver, the shears with which the shepherd clips the wool, the miner, the builder of the furnace, the mill wright, the forger, the smith, must all of them join their different arts in order to produce them.

If we examine all these things, without the assistance of many thousands, the very meanest person could not be provided, even according to what we falsely imagine, the easy and simple manner in which he is commonly accommodated.

I watched a client die yesterday, this person was a Hospice case from the get go, but when I met him 5 days ago, we talked about his life.  To watch the entire process, again, never feels like again, but always feels like it just begin.
