Be All That You Can Be

Recently, we received this lovely and inspiring message in response to one of our videos.

So, we thought it’d be great to share with you on this beautiful day before Thanksgiving.

Marcie wrote:

“Keep preaching the truth. There used to be an ad for the army that said, “Be all you can be.”

Of course, it included “in the army.”

I have been blind since birth and was told that I had to be twice as good to even be (sort of) equal.

But, when it came to vocational rehabilitation (as a client), I was supposed to take anything the placement specialist wanted me to take for a job.

I didn’t completely accept what he said, but I was underemployed for almost 22 years so I felt a bit helpless.

When I went back to get two masters degrees; one in vocational rehabilitation counseling and the other in vision rehabilitation therapy.

I came in with the attitude that I was not going to treat my clients the way I was treated.

I go with the premise that the cup is half full, not half empty and that even though a person can’t do something the same way they did it before a vision loss.

They still need to find a way to do the things they want to do, just maybe a different way.

Even if it’s truly not possible, like flying a plane with no vision, they can adapt.

Whether it be helping build the plane or repairing it or owning an air service…

So, keep on encouraging others who are blind/vision impaired to dare to dream and achieve their dreams.”

A client asked me to quote, keep it real, un-quote, so…

One of our clients from India recently signed up for a course that we offer called Train The Trainers…
This is an online course we offer where we teach individuals how to master being an assistive technology instructor.
Before he signed up though, he asked that I “keep it real” about things.
He wanted to know if there was a true living to be made teaching people with disabilities how to use their technology?
He also wanted a real perspective verses a “unicorn outlook” on the industry of assistive technology teaching, so here goes!
Watch the good, bad and ugly of just about anything you do in the video below:

We know it’s no “Mega Millions” billion dollar pay out but…?

don’t forget our Instagram contest is still going on! If you’d like to be $100 richer, head on over and to our official page at Instagram.com/fedoraoutlier and follow us now!


Press the back button; you can’t break it

The #1 thing that we’ve seen here at Fedora, whether teaching a 7 year old or an 86 year old, is a big fear of breaking their technology!

They press the wrong button…

They meant to do one thing and actually ended up doing another…

They are fearful that if they do something wrong then there is no coming back from it…

Well, this isn’t the 90’s any longer – The calendar says October 12th, 2018 and we’ve come a long way!

This video will share just how far we’ve come…

PS. My wife shared this with me and it blew my mind that people still felt this way about technology.
I hope this video will help to remove your doubt as well.

A number will not be needed to make this a SIMPLE SYSTEM™ that works!

So, here are our two big announcements… with the video below.

Fedora Outlier LLC will no longer use a traditional 1-800 number for communication!

Especially, when a email can do the same thing and more…

You can now reach Fedora anyway you like by simply entering excellence@fedoraoutlier.com via FaceTime audio call, a FaceTime video call, or you can even text it as well!

and of course, as always, you can also send a traditional email.

Now that’s world changing!

The other super cool things you can do with just an email address will blow your mind…

This brings us to our next super big announcement…

We call it SIMPLE SYSTEMS ™

This goes….

Way beyond technology teaching…

We build SIMPLE SYSTEMS that work!

We build them for people who want to work and / or improve their quality of life.

P.S.

This video should demonstrate that

  1. A costly business phone line is NOT needed to do business

  2. Fedora Outlier LLC builds systems that work!

Watch now:

We’ll see you on the inside……

The Thing About Tonight’s Deadline… and Your Questions Answered

I have this love/hate relationship with deadlines…

On the one hand, I like to work at my own pace… and not have to worry about deadlines.

On the other hand, I love them because they push me to make a decision to commit… or not.

And I know nothing inspires action like a deadline.

We have a hard closing deadline for each of our courses. And to further motivate you, a 50% discount and early bird access to the 2018/2019 releases of our new launches.

All that teaching goodness and free access goes away at 12PM EST *midnight) tomorrow, September, 1st 2018.

Watch this weeks video on our youtube channel.,get the details and we’ll see you on the inside
