Certification Quality Standards ‚Äď The Highest Standards include Exams and Courses from Top Business Schools and Law Schools for Higher Standards in Professional Designations.

Certification Quality Standards ‚Äď The Highest Standards include Exams and Courses from Top Business Schools and Law Schools for Higher Standards in Professional Designations.

Professional Designations in the United States and internationally have a long history.¬†Legal cases such as the IBANEZ decision of the Supreme Court dictate that bone fide “board certifications” or “professional designations‚ÄĚ have special criteria which includes:

1)     Accredited Education, 2) Assessment, 3) Degree 4) Continuing Education and 5) Ethics/Professionalism 6) Experience.

2)     The Peel and Ibanez US Supreme Court Decision spell out the rules for proper use of certifications, designations, and qualifications for lawyers and professionals.

3)¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Professional designations are not regulated like certificates and degrees because they are not offering post secondary education and fit into the category of¬†‚ÄúProfessional Development‚ÄĚ

According to George Mentz, Esq, in the last 50 years, many top certifying bodies have NOT required an accredited degree or diploma to become a member. Many of the top certifying bodies merely require experience and to take a test or quiz at a testing shop at a mall or street location.¬†However, the expansion of business schools, eLearning, and MOOCs Massive Online/Open Courses have changed assessment, exams and course delivery. ‚ÄúAs a policy, we have always required an accredited diploma.‚ÄĚ Says Counselor Mentz.

The GAFM Global Academy of Finance and Management has been offering professional designations to those who complete Level II ‚ÄúDouble Accredited‚ÄĚ business schools since 2003.¬†By legal agreements direct with CHEA recognized Accreditation agencies, the GAFM was the first to directly accept and approve top business school exams, courses and degrees for credit toward meeting the educational component for Certification under the Ibanez Supreme court dictates.

Types of Certifications and Accreditation Standards – Level II is the Highest

Certification requiring Level 2 Accredited education and exams. This is the highest form of educational requirements. This education is generally preferred for state licensure and for certifications from organizations such as the Global Academy of Finance and Management since 2003-4. Level 2 means that both the college or university are accredited AND the business school is also separately nationally-accredited by a government recognized body. The ACBSP Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs, AACSB and ABA are examples of level 2 accreditation while education from an ABA American Bar Association education would also be level 2. SEE: ACBSP AACSB EQUIS and ABA or graduate law school. The Council of Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) recognizes these accreditation agencies.

In this new paradigm of e-Learning, MOOCs, and other non traditional education, we are now demanding higher standards. To earn a certification through Level II education, you must:

1.     Apply and become accepted into a Level II business school.

2.     Take the required courses and exams to achieve certification eligibility.

3.     Successfully complete approved and accepted exams and courses at a Level II business school and institution such as: Yale, Harvard, Stanford, MIT, UVA, LSU, University of California, University of Colorado, Louisiana State University etc.

The GAFM Global Academy of Finance and Management is a charter signatory of the CHEA Quality Standards USA and is TUV Accredited and ISO 29990 Certified for Certification Assessment/Training.

The GAFMs and the IOQM International Organization for Quality Management are part of the International Board of Standards which is a Charter Signatory of the CHEA quality standards Memo. The GAFM and IOQM are recognized by the ACBSP Accreditation Council for Business Schools and programs and directly accepts AACSB education.

*Most State and Sovereign Governments worldwide prefer Level II Accreditation for the purposes of business school standards, top MBA programs, or becoming a CPA or Chartered Accountant. Further, Government recognized Bar Accredited Education is required for a legal education and licenses. In a Level 2 accreditation, the college or university and the business school are separately accredited, but the accounting program may not be separately accredited. This level applies to a business school that is accredited by an organization recognized by the Council of Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) as a specialized or professional accrediting organization, such as the AACSB or the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

Level II: Accreditation is associated with a business school or college or business; the institution must be accredited by a national accreditation agency recognized by the board

‚ÄĘ Note: A degree, MBA, MSc, or credential based on a Level 2 education is more widely accepted globally than qualifications or degrees that do not maintain “Level 2” Status. Further, course credits are more easily transferable with reciprocity from Level 2 business schools and institutions that are double accredited. * A key legal note is that a certification/designation is not a “certificate, diploma¬†or academic qualification”.

10 Great Success Books That Can Change Your Life

If you’ve ever read a great business or success-related book, there are usually a few priceless nuggets in each manuscript which make it worth your time. Here are 10 of my favorite self-empowerment books, and a key idea from each manuscript  that made it worth reading. Any of these authors and their books can seriously boost your mindset and consciousness of success, power and happiness.

1) Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

Define your purpose. While this sounds arbitrary, it has several important meanings such as: What do you want to do and how do you want to be? Moreover, discover who you are and why you want to improve. Hill, N. (1960). Think and Grow Rich. New York: Fawcett Crest.

2) How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

Remembering names and enthusiasm matter. Read this book or take the courses from the Carnegie programs. Either way, you will win. The number one lesson I learned from Carnegie is that other people’s names are music to their ears. Learn names of clients, customers or those in positions of influence. Be enthusiastic with people and miracles will happen. Carnegie, D. (1994). How to Win Friends and Influence People. New York: Pocket Books.

3) The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Dr. Stephen Covey

Sharpen the saw or stay sharp. This advice to me is extremely important because we must all be students of life, be open to learn and continue to grow. Covey, S. R. (1989). The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. London: Simon & Schuster.

4) Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz, MD

Change your beliefs on the inside for greater self confidence. Because he was a plastic surgeon, his thoughts on developing confidence within are much more influential. This is because he helped many people change their looks, yet they still remained dissatisfied until they expanded their world view and developed self regard. Maltz, Maxwell, MD (1960). Psycho-Cybernetics. New York: Pocket Books.

5) The Art of Happiness by The Dalai Lama

Peace and joy can be learned and experienced. His book hits home because this master Buddhist professes that peace and happiness can be cultivated by anyone who wants it. His Holiness the Dalai Lama & Howard C. Cutler (1999). The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living. London: Hodder & Stroughton.

6) The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra, MD

Follow your natural expression. The magic of Dr. Chopra is that he is a master of helping people improve their lives and thinking. Dr. Chopra helps us move toward our purpose, right livelihood and authentic selves. Chopra, D. (1996). The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. London: Bantam Press.

7) The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy

Optimize your thinking for success. This is a classic work because Dr. Murphy is a professional at showing people that they can alter their consciousness and beliefs toward a greater good and prosperity. He is a connoisseur of the use of affirmations as a path to mental transformation for greater relationships, success and career improvement. Murphy, J. (1963). The Power of Your Subconscious Mind. New Jersey: Prentice Hall.

8) Maximum Achievement by Brian Tracy

Specify goals and know what you want. Buy any book you can find by Mr. Tracy. He is a consummate professional and a world class writer on the issues of entrepreneurship and management consulting. He famously states that less than 3 percent of people set goals. Tracy, B. (1993). Maximum Achievement: Strategies and Skills That Will Unlock Your Hidden Powers to Succeed. New York: Fireside.

9) The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles

Gratitude is the key to abundance. If you have not read this 100-year-old book, do it. It is quite an amazing piece of prosperity writing from the turn of the century, and it is concise. Wattles’ opus is still a bestseller as he is the genius who has distilled the ideas of success and excellence into a short revolutionary treatise. Wattles, W.D. (1976). Financial Success Through the Power of Thought [The Science of Getting Rich]. Rochester, Vermont: Destiny Books. (Written originally around 1910). Or How to Promote Yourself by Wattles. Lulu Press, ISBN-10: 0615223494.

10) As You Think by Mark Allen

Your experience is shaped according to the totality of your thought. Mr. Allen has a couple of super books, a world recognized publishing house and some of the biggest selling clients. Buy any of Mr. Allen’s books to discover timeless secrets of success. Allen, J. (1998). As You Think. Ed. with introduction by M. Allen. Novato, CA: New World Library.

Sometimes it takes a book or seminar like the ones listed above to jolt our consciousness to make your next move in life. Sometimes economies are bad and other times they seem great. Refuse to participate in doom and gloom, and follow your dreams to the best of your ability. Be your best, find your purpose and show the world your excellence and passion.

10 Trends to Watch in 2015

Here are 10 trends to watch out for in 2015:

1. Technology has made finding oil and gas much more accurate and cost-effective everywhere. Large or luxury auto sales will continue regardless of MPG ratings. Energy independence is a real option in the US and the Americas.

2. People are tired of commuting and will work from home given the option. Thus, less oil and gas is needed due to telecommuting. Lifestyle is becoming more important to working families. Being able to work from home and raise a family could become a civil rights issue.

3. Citizens will take necessary steps to avoid modernized taxes or inner-city taxation. People will buy and build right outside of states such as: New York, California, or outside of cities such as Chicago, Boston, LA or San Fran. States like Texas, Tennessee, Florida and other Federal tax free jurisdiction will gain momentum while acquiring the bulk of the baby boomer retirees who want to stretch their incomes.

4. People will live where there are high quality schools or parents may: a) home school their kids, b) send their children to private schools, c) use tutors, or d) use online study.

5. Cheaper oil may reduce the GDP of countries and super-states such as Nigeria, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Russia, and other active regions such as Texas and Alaska. Cheap gas has spurred some consumer spending, but cheaper gas may reduce tax revenue for governments, states and cities.

6. The demographics of fast growing regions such as India, China and Indonesia/Malaysia should continue to drive up energy and commodity costs for the next 40 years. More college grads in the US may leave and work offshore than ever before.

7. Colleges and Universities may crumble in size or fail unless value is provided. There is an ever expanding number of free options: college courses, MOOCS (Massive Courses), open courses, free online diplomas, free or almost free degree options and more. 2015 may be the easiest year in 40 years to get into a graduate school for law or business.

8. The dollar and stock market are temporarily strong and more people will travel internationally as a result of this. Low interest rates and cheap energy are contributing to short-term economic power, building, buying and hiring.

9. Conventional security and conventional policing is changing toward technology quickly. Look for more cameras, more drones, more robots, more tracking, more surveillance, and more uses of stun or paralyzing technology.

10. Branchless Banking may shift to Cyber Cashless Exchanges that are linked, such as: Amazon (a- coin), Alibaba (b-coin) Ebay (e-coin), Google (g-coin) and PayPal (p-coin), and other related companies. It’s also possible big players like Visa, Amex, Discover, and Schwab will do deals with companies like Amazon and Apple to provide branchless banking worldwide.

500 Words to Inspire – George Mentz Quantum Bliss Bestseller

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

Wake up, be yourself, follow your dreams, and be alive. Boldness is pure energy. Seize the moment and engage life.

Being contemplative-in-action is the secret key to success. Having a focused and harmonious connection to the ‚ÄúSpirit of the Universe‚ÄĚ while working effectively toward your highest ideals will continually reveal results.

Remember, you are connected with all possibility. Take hold of your divine rights to health, supply and success. Allow yourself to be great and to do great things. WE MUST CREATE.

Build new ways of doing things, providing service, devising solutions, supply opportunity and help teach others. Follow your labor of love, and your talents will be exposed. If you exercise the practical steps of gratitude, faith, receptivity, visualization and action, then inspiration, also known as the sixth sense, will emerge and you will know when to take action on constructive ideas and fulfill them to completion.

A thankful heart is the powerful path to faith, knowingness, and living with joy. Learn to know forgiveness in your heart. Feel that the supreme forgives all of you. Realize that you have forgiven all transgressions once and for all. With your absolution, you free your mind’s mental and spiritual power. What you now focus upon is expansive in your life. Your spiritual awareness of excellence will enhance your constructive perception and your world. And, your expanded world view improves all of our journeys.

Be patient, be mindful, and strive for a harmonious relationship with your world both inside and out. Your ongoing ideas and flow coupled with action and faith will lead to great heights. Ask and you shall receive, but become ready to receive what you desire and joyfully accept the fruits of the beneficent universe.

Seek a higher purpose and see yourself as you want to be. You are the totality of your actions, omissions, feeling and thought.  Take control of your spiritual mind and you will find purpose and peace.

Life is continuous improvement where we learn to balance our powers of mind, body and spirit. Happiness is subjective and we all must build ourselves from the inside out. If we can cultivate self regard develop harmony with other people, places and things in our environment, we can operate at a higher order of being.

We all have the opportunity to live a supernatural life in which we have a positive impact and meaning for our family, our community and the world. Our constructive actions can improve the prosperity of generations to come where our legacy as teachers of the quantum mechanics of success will never be forgotten.

May the spirit of the universe bless you and your loved ones as you journey onward with quantum bliss.
