At ISA we know that after each national disaster Job Opportunities are impacted. Things slow down as people seek greater understanding of breaking news, with internet and social networks reporting on devastating events. Our hearts reach out to Oklahoma and many of us feel that no words could express our sorrow for their loss. We felt the same during Sandy, and other emergency disasters not just on our shores, but also occurring abroad. Americans travel and we need to be prepared everywhere.
Oklahoma is a devastating national tragedy that every parent dreads (to be cut off from their children). It’s the teachers who once again are the heroes, throwing their bodies to cover and protect the kids under their care. My concern extends to how we can do better in our domestic help field. Working in Household Help Jobs often includes care of children and infants or housekeeper-childcare services that overlap.
Among other things Nanny job descriptions require caring, teaching, guiding, and protecting children. It’s a job that needs to include greater awareness inclusive of possible national emergencies. TIP: Check with and support your local FEMA and Red Cross, and take their preparedness programs to better equip yourself. Sign up for updates. Include your volunteer work on your resume, and if you’re already on a Job, encourage Parents to become involved with FEMA programs along with other local government agencies in your area. Offer your volunteer work at Fire Departments that hold voting days. Encourage people to vote for disaster relief support.
If you’re in Los Angeles there is a way to help people working at the L.A. Mission, Goodwill, local schools, food banks and food pantries, hospitals, and other community outreach programs. If your resume does not already reflect your volunteer work, start to include some. People are greatly encouraged when we’re helping each other. A kind word and thoughtful action goes a long way.
Where we live the threat of earthquakes is real. We are required to have 72-hour emergency packs. Most people say they’re prepared but forget to follow through. Have you prepared your pack? Do consult with your Employer to also prepare for the children you work with. We need to take courses how to provide safety to others and ourselves simultaneously. Fortunately, we’ve never had an earthquake that required us to use a 72-hour pack.
Learning is perhaps our greatest asset. We have conflicting reports about what’s causing climate change. A recent report causing a furor confirmed that over 90% of all related science reports proves climate change is caused by humans. The report stated that amazingly (a word they used), despite this known fact, a small percentage of scientists still argue their doubt – and that the rest of the scientists worry the public believes them. The article was referenced in the science magazine Nature. Nobody can argue a 20-foot wide Tornado was an anomalous event. All we need do is look at China with their air pollution and the argument whether that’s a man-made event, becomes moot. Tornados in Tornado Alley were far smaller and caused greater damage. See more on world Tornadoes of 2013.
We need to always be looking forward into the future. Americans bring some of the greatest disaster relief expertise, going overseas (often at their own expense) risking to volunteer assistance to others. They put their lives on the line domestically too, giving the same generosity of support that we’re famous for. Early warnings was some of the reason for the low loss of life in Oklahoma. Too much heartbreak for people who lost loved ones. Situational aspects cannot truly be covered when an event of this magnitude occurs.
People and businesses came forward to spread their love and hope for Oklahoma. Acts of heroism and kindness emerged for people to be reunited. To rebound from such events will take dedicated thoughtful care and effective communication, not panic reactions and inflammatory news mongering. Operating hand-in-hand will help bring a thriving community back on its feet a year from now. Talk to one another about things you’ve learned, and how to improve our local and federal assistance programs. Small local programs can have huge net impact.
Keeping our spirit strong is most important and a lifelong endeavor. As we move into challenges of the future our prayers are with Oklahoma, and with all people everywhere who’ve endured loss. Each of us finds our own way to pray and/or give thanks. We are one human family. We emerge better together, so Share the wealth of your love freely.
We value, thank you, and appreciate your support and patronage!

Humans are spiritual beings who are also intensely social creatures. We passionately enjoy special Events. Conscious spontaneous choreography is required, much more than just planning. At ISA we refer Top Chefs for the best jobs our VIP clients give us among other Best Job Opportunities. Job descriptions that require top expert household help. Expert Chefs who love to serve fabulous healthy food and drinks, who also make great nutritious foods for children. They’re also able to invent a solution to unexpected challenges (like sudden extra dinner guests with pets and an entourage).
TIP: Breathing (taking a deep breath such as Ujjayi breath), is your first step. People still “trend image” and some are solely reliant on fashion to sell themselves. One image is the ‘cool’ character, a slippery trend that shifts spontaneously. We all know that something that was cool yesterday is suddenly uncool today. Like smoking, a growing trend, (I’m a former smoker who quite in my twenties so this is not intended to be preaching), with second-hand smoke adversely affecting children. Or mindlessly consuming questionable foods like GMO that children are also exposed to daily in their schools. These are facts of harmful impact (do the research online and you’ll quickly see for yourself). Forget promoting an image that promotes unhealthy living, there’s nothing cool about it (our survival is at stake). Know that your behavior affects them, and that children have different needs unique to their growth.
TIP: Share and keep sharing Information. Like the fact that autism is spreading among other disorders primarily in the west, in the English speaking countries. ADD and HDAD or OCD are rapidly increasing. I ran across a neurologist doctor, who wrote a book (about healing the gut via a GAPS Diet) showing this can be cured or greatly improved. See more about GAP here, and listen to Dr. Mercola’s interview with Dr. Natasha Campbell-Mcbride. I’m not promoting their beliefs or diets (thought they seem quite worth trying), this is in the interest of exploring possibilities that might be of help. People make new resolutions and perhaps this is relevant for yours.
There’s a new love story circulating. As a TED video posted by an artist showed, younger gens are reaching out across borders and religious beliefs in hopes of finding peace. All it took was one person not waiting on his government. Practice Love, you can’t stop it.
Many of our clients are on vacation taking yachting breaks and due to confidentiality we don’t name them. Bringing quality time to everything they do requires a staff that does too. Some of those jobs require traveling with the Employer. If it’s not best of the best, immediately introduce something to improve the moment. It’s not one day at a time, it’s moment by moment (and beyond). Don’t wait to creatively push things to be at their very best, and always have your humor ready. Appreciate our oceans wherever you go and do keep your carbon footprint in view. Natives will appreciate it, and so will you.
There is also nostalgia about nostalgia, as people feverishly rush to commemorate ephemeral sartorial days, from casual to formal (suggested or required) for a huge range of events. We love Chanel, who took women out of dresses by putting them into men’s clothing (cross gender was not a term back then cause people were just free without making a big deal out of it constantly), forever ending imprisonment of female side-saddel (among other sexy freeing things).
She forged her own vision and laid her own path against others who opposed and criticized. Her message was clear: don’t live vicariously and be your own original freedom. There has been a growing trend to become ‘ugly deliberately’. Create your beauty-full world, rather than blame memories you’re clinging to. As the brilliant acting coach Stella Adler taught, get over it. It’s a new year.
Anything goes in 2013; we remember artists who’ve bravely insisted on new directions. Raise a toast to them as our forerunners. They created the world we live in today, often with great personal sacrifice and unimaginable travail. None of this would have been possible without them. If you’re in New York or passing through on your way back from vacation, go see MOMA exhibit on abstraction to enjoy art that transformed the world, and our Spirit with it. See the Holocaust Museum in Washington, and then see The Scream by Munch (a lifetime opportunity). Take your friends, children, with you. Human suffering has been with us since the beginning. One of the best books I ever read was I Never Promised You a Rose Garden. This may seem low for a New Year event, but it’s about being grateful, not forgetting the past.
It was a young St. Laurent who originally made the smoking suit popular for women everywhere, by introducing his own original everyday style (inspired upon Channel’s). I share passion with Yves St. Laurent and his conversation with Art, who inspired me significantly in my youth.
Our celebrity clients know it’s important to explore roles and reinvent ourselves (often). Best of the best Staffing is always done with expert unsurpassed quality, as ISA is famous for. Original Art is not derivative. It’s not about copying randomly, as we’re seeing increasingly fill our museums. Original means a new vision. Fashion, including your jeans and t-shirts, are costumes. We come famously naked so let’s not argue, (just smile).
Another highly inspirational place to visit would be going to the American Visionary Art Museum. Explore and appreciate remarkable self-taught artists, and perhaps also volunteer your time there. Founder/Director Rebecca Alban Hoffberger, is another visionary with a great art philosophy to study.
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013!
