Kaua’i Big Wind & Waves: March 1

Surf News Network.

First, thank you for the safety wishes and lots of prayers for us down here in Kaua’i. �God heard you and we were spared, and continue to pray for Chile and Japan, who may be next on the tsunami wave radar. �

We are so thankful that the tsunami did not hit the Hawaiian islands. �We are all prepared and ready. �If anything ever does happen, we have a Free Store where you could send stuff ahead of time; we’ll be activating a disaster plan soon, send stuff anytime to: Free Store Kauai in Kapa’a, HI.Follow/Friend @freestorekauai�. �This is Hawaii, but like any city/state we have people in need; desperate need actually — especially of shoes/slippers and Toddler Girl’s & Boy’s clothing. �

We do have some really big surf and winds today, tonight and tomorrow from a storm 800 miles away. �My friend Merri, an avid surfer, stays away from the surf in these conditions, she said “It reminds me of the hurricane”. �She’s been on island for over 20 years. �

At any rate, just wanted to give you guys this information. If you know anything about any storm coming or have any weather knowledge of how this could affect us, please TWEET @kauaiday.��The wind is intriguing for Kiters like Pete, but I bet he’s even steering clear because they gust, then die down. �If the wind dies, the kite goes down, leaving kiters in the ocean– not fun – experienced Kiters like Pete (I call them The Wind Chasers) know all the tricks on how to get to shore or catch the next gust. �

So, from Kauai, we’re all safe and sound – today there’s no one on the beach, it’s really rough and the tide has been up all day with the gusty winds. �It reminds me of the Texas Coast – and Galveston Bay’s choppy water�before Hurricane Ike. It�helps to have some hurricane experience, ’round these parts…. cause ‘ya just never know. �

Keep an eye out for us – our island is the furthest West, and the first one to get the North winds.�

On-Location, Live-Streaming Interview Launch

During the last few months, Dayna Marcum, founder of Local Reach and formerly Chess Executive search has experimented long enough with new media, production and live-streaming. Now it’s time to create an impact.

It makes sense to launch this service now, when the market desperately needs to save time, money and get people employed, FAST. Without further non-sense, here is what this new service is all about.

We are not recruiters, but a team comprised of professional interviewers and producers using our talents in production, new media, employment and technology industries to impact the world. We believe in people being comfortable in their own setting, from flip-flops to suits & ties – your way, is the only way.

Hire us if one of the following apply:

B: Ready to embrace the technology of today for your business or personal development.

C: On board with saving time, money and paper to stimulate the economy through streamlining the hiring/interview process.

D: Interested in offering people “An Insiders View” of your company/talent level.

E. Ready to have fun while producing a real-life company/personal campaign.

Do You Fit as a Client?

Yes, this business supports all types of companies and prospective talent:

Interview/Early Entrepreneur Coaching:
A fit for any executive or upper-management candidate looking to improve interview, presentation, or speaking skills to land an executive level/upper management position, launch a new business or uncover areas of creative talent. Media content is produced privately and/or publicly dependent on client need.

Corporations/Recruiting Firms
Businesses of all sizes seeking to save time and money by bringing efficiency to the hiring process and utilize the social web. On-location interviews create the ability to interact with the prospective candidate live in the comfort of the office or favorite virtual work-space.

This service includes a live-streamed production: “An Insiders View”, a real-life walkthrough of your company or firm complete with impromptu interviews of leadership for prospective talent or a marketing/recruiting branding tool for social media platforms.

Outplacement/Employment Services
Outplacement firms/Companies experiencing lay offs hire us to interview those being laid off from a position. Created in a group setting, any interested party looking to hire can ask, live, any of the candidates questions during the session.

We are about helping people in need. Should a business like us to support their non-profit with live walkthroughs and event broadcasting. We would be delighted to include their event should it take place while at your location. Here’s a sample, uploaded to Facebook, a casual walkthrough to give an inside look of how things work, from an “insiders” perspective.

Interview Tours:
This is perhaps the most exciting service. Sponsored by companies interested in spreading their brand. We design and produce a multi-city tour and events with on-the-street journalism and a live-talent competition. Each campaign is custom built and marketed toward the client target market/demographic. Our broadcast team engages in conversations of life topics: career, talent and economic challenges strengths and weaknesses. Watch us in action at the Envision08 Event.
All broadcast activity is live-streamed, and available to watch later, then sent to all web PR partners across the world. Our live-crew brands with company gear, this also includes a company “An Insiders View” reality-based production.

How Much Does It Cost?

Interview & Development Clients: 2hr, 4hr or daily sessions plus travel/per diem. (may be sponsored by a firm experiencing lay offs). Pricing is consistent with professional services such as an attorney or an accountant fee.

Businesses: One Time Fee or Retainer with 6 or 12 month contracts. All pricing and engagement is dependent on size, location and current/future company objectives. Most services begin with the price of your upper management recruiting fees.
