Houston restaurants do not have to do health screening when hiring a new employee. The Department of Health has no law requiring this as many other states do. Why not? With the influx of illegal aliens now working in our restaurants and food preparation businesses does it not make sense? With the latest outbreaks of diseases aren’t your worried? I am. Where are you eating tonight? Contact the Governor at (512) 463-2000. Ask him to push a law through to require health cards in the food industry. We need it badly.

Garden City, NY (PRWEB) September 25, 2012

The NAPW Chicago, IL Local Chapter held professional networking events during the months of May and June. During each meeting, members and guests had the opportunity to attend two informative and relevant workshops: Starting and Growing a Business 101 in May and Creating Your Unique Personal Brand in June. Mays workshop was presented by a panel of successful women entrepreneurs, many of whom are NAPW Chicago, IL Local Chapter members and in June, member Toby Nathan presented her tips on personal branding.

On May 16th, nearly 30 members and guests gathered at Union Park Lounge in Chicago for an exhilarating and engaging networking event. Chapter President Megan Wessels kicked off the meeting by welcoming the panelists, moderator, and keynote speaker.

Each panelist had something unique to offer and share with the group. Together they covered many important aspects of being a successful business owner, said Megan. The room was filled with energy and enthusiasm.

Panelist speakers included: Barbara Sharpiro, Owner and Personal Trainer/Martial Arts Instructor at BeFit Personal; Toby Nathan, Principal at RecruitaStar; Lise Marinelli, President at Windy City Publishers and Second City Books; Lisa Henson, President at Henson Healthcare Placement Inc.; Toby Nathan, Principal and Co-Founder at RecruitaStar; Jamie Pritscher, Chief Brand Officer at NuphorIQ and Co-founder and CEO at Thats Caring; Erin Walter, Chief Executive Officer at NuphorIQ; and Dr. Michele Kehrer; Owner and Chief Physical Therapist at LifeStyle Physical Therapy & Balance.

The session was moderated by Jennifer E. Lacroix who challenged and engaged the panelists to explain and offer advice on many key topics including best practices in starting up a new business, creating a brand, and hiring the right talent.

Dr. Terri Friel offered insightful closing statements and touched upon some of the important key points of building a successful business. Her topic was Planning for Growth in the Early Years;

How to Build Foundations for Success.

Megan gave a special thanks to all of the volunteer panelists and speakers for sharing their knowledge and providing inspiration to all who attended the networking meeting. Members, guests, and panelists had this to say about the workshop:

The panelists did a great job providing inspiration and advice for future women entrepreneurs. Both the moderator, Jennifer Lacroix and Chapter President, Megan Wessels had prepared questions for them in advance that kept the audience engaged and interested in learning from these awesome women, said Robin Schaltz, Director of Creative Services True Value Company and NAPW Chicago, IL Chapter VP Marketing and PR. You could feel the energy, passion, and empowerment for building a successful business throughout the entire room!

It was fun to be part of the panel last night. Thank you for bringing a wonderful group of women together, said Barbara Sharpiro, Owner and Personal Trainer/Martial Arts Instructor at BeFit Personal. I made new acquaintances, learned information to further my business, and was re-energized through the positive energy of the evening. I look forward to future events.

It was a great program with awesome speakers that provided so much practical/useful information, said Toby Nathan, Principal, RecruitaStar, LLC. It was a winner and you were able to create the right energy and team of panelists! Congratulations. The group really complimented each other and thank you for allowing me to be an integral part of the program. I look forward to the June 1st branding program!

Toby is scheduled to be the guest speaker at the Chapters June event and will present a workshop titled Creating Your Unique Personal Brand. Branding isnt just for products or companies. Personal branding can help professionals, entrepreneurs, job seekers, and more stand out from the crowd. Branding (how you package yourself internally and externally) should be the first step in developing your personal and professional career presence. Learn how to develop a strategy to build your brand with easy, practical ideas from Toby.; toby(at)recruitastar(dot)com

Williams-Meridian Companies Makes a Strategic Investment in the Eagle Ford Shale

Carrizo Springs, TX (PRWEB) September 25, 2012

Williams-Meridian Companies has made yet another direct real estate investment in South Texas as a part of the Company’s recent strategic realignment. Over the past few years, the Firm has changed its business objectives to largely focus on real estate investments and developments throughout the Eagle Ford shale. This is primarily due to the overwhelming demand for housing and commercial real estate that is being generated by the oil and gas shale boom occurring in the area, according to the Company.

CS1 Development recently started constructing housing units on a prime 32 acre tract of land in Carrizo Springs, Texas. The project is initially geared towards better workforce accommodations, and is later expected to be combined with more housing and commercial development. The new development project broke ground in early July 2012 and has been proceeding at a rapid pace from the beginning. This real estate project by Williams-Meridian through CS1 Development is strategically located in the heart of the Eagle Ford shale, within miles of where the largest amount of oil drilling and economic activity is now occurring.

CS1’s development project is slated to be one of the only master-planned communities in the Eagle Ford shale. With recreational vehicle spaces, creek-side cabins, potential restaurant pad sites, two motels, an apartment complex, and an additional workforce housing component being planned, this notable project by CS1 Development should be groundbreaking in and of itself. Now with the backing of Williams-Meridian Companies, the target date for this project to open doors is set for late October 2012.

A Company spokesperson was not available at the time of this interview, but for more information on Williams-Meridian Companies and CS1 Development, please visit:
