March 18, 2019

Bart was joined in the studio by CASA of Orange County's CEO, Regan Phillips, and their Chief Communications Officer Matthew Wadlinger to discuss the impact CASA as an organization and their volunteers are having on children in the foster care system.

As a former lawyer, Regan's passion for CASA was ignited early on in her career through a series of events that led her to getting involved in various roles with CASA of Orange County before accepting the position of CEO last year. Dedicated to being an agent for change, Regan and her CASA team of staff and volunteers stand behind CASA's mission: to provide a powerful voice for youth in the child welfare system through a unique one-on-one relationship with trained and supervised court appointed volunteer advocates. They work to ensure that these youth are safe, have a permanent home and an opportunity to thrive.

With over 3100 children of all ages in the foster care system in Orange County, CASA is proud to have over 500 CASA volunteers actively working with the youth. However, just over 250 children are still on a wait list to be matched with a CASA.

In this episode, you'll gain access to:

-Understanding what CASA is and what being a CASA means

-How you can get started to become a trained CASA to work with children in the foster care system

-How you can help in the fundraising efforts for this organization that is 95% privately funded

Vair Jets: A Private Jet Co-Ownership Program Unlike Any Other

Vair Jets: A Private Jet Co-Ownership Program Unlike Any Other

February 4, 2019

Introducing Vair Jets - the newest co-ownership program for private jet clients in the USA.

David Bowling and Collin Jamieson of Vair Jets joined Letitia in the podcast studio to talk about the launch of their company and its services.

Co-ownership is a great fit for clients who travel 100-200 hours per year, but don't want the full responsibility or cost associated with complete private jet ownership.

Some of the benefits of co-ownership through Vair Jets include:
-Mitigated partnership entry and exit risks.
-Ownership structured to ensure complete tax autonomy.
-Easy scheduling - online access to a shared owner calendar to book flights as needed.
-Reliable costs - with co-ownership, you never get surprise expenses.
-Professional flight operators on call 24/7, 365 days a year.

Listen to the episode to learn:
-The difference between fractional and co-ownership for private jets.
-How to know when it is best to charter a private jet versus look into co-ownership.
-Discover the benefits and perks of being a Vair Jets client and co-owner of a private jet.
-Learn about the Vair Jets experience and how it separates itself from the competition.
