PositivelyPittsburghLive, Premier Edition Small Business Saturday, April 5, 2014



For 35 years Emil was a Sheet Metal Worker member of Local 12 as a Foreman/Superintendent/Estimator/Project Manager.
9 years ago Emil was introduced to the LegalShield product and opportunity and finally saw what he wanted to be when he grew up.
He is an expert in helping small business owners grow and protect their business with premium identity theft and legal protection plans.
Emil has written articles for First Commonwealth Bank, Breaking Ground Magazine and SMC H.R. Update helping to clarify some misconceptions on Identity Theft.

He is presenting a seminar called “What Me Worry?  The Mad, Mad World of Identity Theft” at the monthly meeting of the North 
Suburban Builders Association on April 17th

To schedule an identity theft workshop for your business organization contact Emil @ 412-860-5540 or
To learn more about how LegalSheild works go to for information

This is not an offer but a tip.  We have a huge misconception about the legal system.  Most corporate entities that we deal with have a legal team, why?  Because every decision that is made is checked for legalities to protect the corporation.  Who protects the average citizen; who looks out for you and me?  At LegalShield our mission is to make the legal system available to everyone, not just the rich and famous!

Presentation offer:
Identity theft educational presentation to groups that want to learn more about the Fastest Growing Crime in America.

Daryle Crew Roboch – Image-Thinking

Image-Thinking is the Business of Visual Literacy. IT takes Art and “kicks it up a notch” so that Art becomes a language. This
Right-Brain, Left-Brain, Whole-Brain approach to Information Processing has educational, social and technological benefits. Resources are becoming available on-line.

     This is a 3-dimentional motivational and language development
approach to thinking and learning.  The three dimensions include:
1.    visual and other stimulus
2.    body-mind relaxation
3.    speech-writing-language development
which in turn creates a mind-body methodology
The program involves mentoring for relaxation and communication, motivation using imagery for thinking and learning, and methods to enhance language development.

Through her 40+ years of teaching and research, Dr. Crew mastered the power of alternative learning skills. This was done by mainstreaming unique learning talents and visual and mental asset discovery.

Dr. Crew has turned the love of beautiful imagery that comes from the heart of every learner, into the beauty of expression in the form of drawing, writing, poetry and other art forms.  She is able to increase a student’s learning ability through better in-put and out-put experiences…..and she shares this with you in this easy to understand learning road-map.

Many of the products were designed with the help of her grand-daughter’s needs:
  •  to relax
  •  to learn to read
  •  to love and respect Art.

Amusement parks, dancing, Gymboree, balloons, just jumping on the bed can all be learning experiences. What you need as the parent or teacher is the ability to extract the lesson learned!   Image-thinking reflection sheets and happy cards do exactly that.

This program helps:

1. toddlers/young children learning to write the words that they are experiencing
2. older children experiencing a “learning lag”
3. visual-thinking learners in an “academic world” that  primarily rewards verbal acuity
4. people with learning problems and/or disabilitites
5. any age visual-thinking learners in an “academic world” that primarily rewards verbal acuity
6. brain injury patients
7. trauma victims

Pictured learning is as old as hieroglyphics.  Today it can help the writing process, eliminating the stigma that visual thinkers feel. “Everybody did it”, starting with the caveman.

“Dr. Crew gets it!”   Despite her disability (as described in her book  entitled “Image-Thinking”) , Dr.  Crew a.k.a. Grand-Ma Rainbow, was able to earn a Doctorate of Education at the University of Pittsburgh.  Her work has, in addition, achieved various publications and the prestigious National Christa McAuliffe Fellowship for Pennsylvania from the US Department of Education.  This financial award enabled the expansion of her program of Visual Literacy into a legitimate and respected entity.

As her personal journey illustrates, this approach can give visual-thinking students “the power of possibility” as much, or more than anyone else.

Her Tip:

The A B C's for improving concentration, memory and writing through this Visual Litracy Program are;

        A. Draw a picture of a feeling or idea
        B. Add color to the picture
        C. Ad words on it somewhere
