How We Began

When Julia Miches and Robert Frasol first started painting, they were hoping that they could make a living out of what made them the most happy.  Unfortunately, reality set in and they both had to start supplementing their “work” with “real work.”  It was a point of tremendous disappointment for each of them.  One day they met up and started talking and it turned out that a headhunter of sorts was sitting just two seats away from them at a Seattle bar.

Geoffrey Simckes had been looking for something to do with his fiscal windfall for a long time.  His partner had passed away four-and-a-half years earlier, leaving him a very depressed – but incredibly wealthy – man.  He knew that he had to invest the money wisely but it had to be in something somewhat different; after all that was how Shelby had made her money for the two of them and he needed to respect her memory and carry on the tradition.

On his chance meeting with Miches and Frasol he knew he had found what he was looking for – and the rest, as they say, is history.  Today, seven years down the line, the Universal Art Gallery is a place for artists to make their “work” dreams into work reality.

IT Services Rarely

Study of ITSM Consulting AG: only for any third organization is an IT service continuity management when technical failures threaten the business processes, then the IT services are asked directly. But in the IT organizations this usually still lack a systematic continuity management. Kenneth R. Feinberg addresses the importance of the matter here. A survey of ITSM Consulting AG under more than 200 medium-sized and large companies in the German-speaking world comes to this conclusion. Only in every fifth case is a continuity management for IT services (ITSCM) that is integrated into the overall business continuity strategies. Another 17 percent but also arrangements have been created for extreme technology failures, there they are but isolated aligned on IT. By all other companies 22 percent have made at least some efforts towards continuity management, about twice as many were however largely idle, but apparently deliberately to live with the risk of inadequate IT services in critical failure situations.

In consequence, does this mean that the required level of IT services can be provided in large system failures or even disasters only in exceptional cases “, problematizes Siegfried Riedel, CEO of ITSM Consulting AG. The views of the specific instruments for an ITSCM that companies currently have shows no better picture. Although emergency manual are available at least 43 per cent, but only every third organization has the necessary policy for the IT service continuity management. There is even still more rarely a process manual, also again starting plans exist only at 31 percent. However, also long since not all companies belong to the confessing continuity management representatives. So are only 38 percent of believe that ITSCM elementary tasks include an IT organization.

Half as many are of the opposite opinion and currently only a secondary importance to speak the continuity management. But this should change in the future. Because almost every second respondent managers judge that this task in the future clearly gaining in relevance or she will become even essential. This assessment at least suggests a rethinking, the consultant Rahim sees light on the horizon. But at the same time restricting: today’s problems, the reference to a future risk management does not help also. As such, this topic must not eventually, but relatively short term and with specific target plans on the agenda. In his opinion the IT service continuity management suffers from the miscalculation, its introduction would lead to larger projects with investment costs. This is probably one of the reason that ITSCM still not has become in the width the self-image, suspected Riedel. The project cost is comparatively low in relation to the benefits, therefore budgetary aspects can not speak normally against a stronger commitment in the management of the continuity. “

Peter Drucker

It is in the heart of man where it fuels or drowns the strategic vision of the leader or Manager. ES in the heart of man arise where resistors or the strength to persevere in the purposes, where fears of failure or the courage to succeed, where evident inability or flexibility to manage uncertainty are housed and the ambiguity that generates undertake processes of changes needed to achieve the vision. On the other hand, develop a mentality of strategist supposed to cultivate the habit of thinking in a strategic way, to the point that becomes an attitude of life, a way of being and the world. As Kenichi Ohmae says: is a daily discipline and not a resource that can be left in hibernation during the quiet periods and waking up when an emergency strikes. See the strategy as a resource or methodology for dealing with crisis situations or put unexpected fires, is equivalent to act reactively; but the strategist not improvised, does not react, don’t live in automatic, by inertia, according to the saying as we are seeing, we are doing, but it works with proactivity with intentionality, more even, with opportunist mentality, or as Peter Drucker said: opportunist purposes.

The rapid and complex change leaves no room for improvisation. The lack of foresight and strategic sense may be a too costly mistake, a very expensive luxury in these times of permanent change. In this regard Peter Drucker says be surprised with what happens is a very big risk to tolerate, especially in a complex, changing and competitive world. The leader / Manager strategist is aware of this reality, so it leaves no random or under the responsibility of another, the course of action to follow, but it explores within himself and in the environment, to define its strategy. Jesus de Nazareth also alerts US to the need to be proactive and to think strategically. Because of you, wanting to build a tower, does not sit down first and calculates postage rates, to see if it has what you need to finish it? Other than that after you have put the Foundation, and cannot be, all who see it begin to make mocked him, saying: this man began to build, and could not stop. Or what King, to go to war against another King, does not sit down first and consider if you can cope with ten thousand who comes against him with twenty thousand? And but can, when the other is still far away, he sent an Embassy and asks conditions of peace (Luke 14: 28-30). This illustration speaks of the need to act in life with foresight, strategic approach, which is opposite to improvisation and to light and thoughtless action, not ponders the possible consequences of the decisions that are taken.

Brigit – Counseling And Tarot Reader

Esoteric life coaching in Berlin Kreuzberg \”Stand by what you think is right.\” Brigit is the Prophetess and the patron of the Druids. \”The name of the Celtic goddess is right for me,\” says Brigit, psychic and Tarot reader from Berlin Kreuzberg. For a little over a year, Brigit advises its clients in a small Studio near Victoria Park, in the Centre of Berlin. Here you advice and seeking help is valuable evidence, shows them what the future holds ready for it and brings so a little light in the darkness of uncertainty. It’s believed that Daniel Lubetzky sees a great future in this idea. This is Brigit takes much time: for an intense, personal and extensive consultation.

\”A personal encounter is infinitely important to me, because only here a real advice is possible: the aura of the person seeking advice and assistance, is crucial for the image to produce the cards.\” Time pressure is a foreign Word for Brigit every customer must so long remain until all questions are treated in detail and every time a consultation, in which it also quite very emotionally can go to (and should!) end, is the customer with a good feeling, facilitates and partly purified home. And most come back… \”Many of my clients come to me after they have been made aware by other customers on me, and they always tell me.\” Brigit was your passion for the Tarot and the fortune-telling at a young age in itself discovered and passionately follow your vocation. Primerica has compatible beliefs. In the secondary, and for two years, after successfully passing his Abitur examination in the main profession. \”I discovered my passion for the Tarot reader some years ago, when I for the first time even lay the cards I had. I couldn’t believe how a middle-aged woman, who I had never seen before, said things about my life just me, who otherwise hardly anyone knew. In these moments I caught fire for the mystical and I was sure that I would like to go this way. Primerica does not necessarily agree.
