Wisconsin Business Attorney & Coach Richard Kranitz publishes series of business coaching articles

Motivational and instructional articles were developed during Richard Kranitz’ work as business coach for commercial businesses and their managers

Grafton, Wisconsin 2018 – Business attorney and coach Richard A. Kranitz, based in Wisconsin, has published of series of articles that he wrote during his work as business coach, when he coached entrepreneurs and managers how to better run their companies while enjoying the process.

Mr. Kranitz explains that “I have spent years learning and understanding the principles that underlie human behavior, particularly in the business world. Gradually, over time while coaching business managers to improve their performance, I condensed my experience and learning into a series of articles, which I am now making available on my Blog.”

Attorney Richard Kranitz recently launched a blog that provides commentary and analysis of complex Business Law, Securities, and Taxation issues as a service to the public. In that Blog, he is sharing the experience that he has gained in over 45 years of solving complex Business Law problems not only for individuals but also for businesses.

Mr. Kranitz’ Blog features legal analysis and commentary on significant court precedents, as well as regulatory developments. 

Mr. Kranitz prides himself in being a counselor and mentor of business owners and managers, to encourage them to make positive and sustainable changes in their operations. He has served many years as an officer and director of firms in many industries, where he has assisted in business and strategic planning and problem solving to support growth with profits. 

The series of coaching related articles include (key content in parentheses):

“Take the Key Step in Startup Success” (… Decades ago, most students of entrepreneurship believed that successful entrepreneurs had some rare ability that enabled them to build a rapid growth business - the ability to spot an opportunity that others missed - but in recent years, many who studied successful entrepreneurs have come to the same conclusion that I did from studying my more successful entrepreneur clients. They found an element that I found validated in my own experience in those companies that enjoyed sudden rapid growth. In most of those cases, the entrepreneur or startup team did one unique thing before they prepared their business plan. They performed a thorough feasibility analysis before they committed major funds. …). See https://richardkranitzblog.blogspot.com/2018/09/richard-kranitz-take-key-step-in.html

“How to Develop and Attitude of Abundance” (… But just as people often start from either an optimistic or pessimistic perspective, people can begin with an attitude toward scarcity or abundance. Which attitude a business owner takes along that dimension can significantly affect the likely success or failure of his business. …).

“How Do You Grow Your Business?” (… Planning is an important part of achieving success in any business, but implementing those plans is critical. By meeting with the owner regularly to review progress and make adjustments, the business coach helps provide both motivation and accountability in implementing the plan. …).

“People - The Heart of Any Business” (… It proves the point that at the heart of any business are its people. Selecting the right people, placing them in the right spots, and facilitating their working together can build a strong business or turn an average one into a business that is great. Understanding their working styles is a key task in the process. Fortunately, there are some tools that can aid in accomplishing that task. One such tool is called a DISC assessment. Through having a job candidate or current employee fill out a detailed questionnaire it can generate a report that identifies certain key behavioral traits. This information can be used to select key personnel, assemble them into effective teams, and assist them to work together more effectively. ….).

Mr. Kranitz’ practice as a business coach ranges from helping business leaders to resolving daily business issues to challenging them to become the best business leaders possible.

Immigration practitioner Godfrey Muwonge starts legal blog and commentary on immigration matters

Wisconsin Immigration attorney Godfrey Muwonge announced today his new legal blog https://GodfreyMuwonge.blogspot.com/ which will focus primarily on visa and immigration matters, and how they are changing.

“With all the recent news headlines and often misunderstood information regarding immigration, I felt that I could help explain the truths behind the real issues at hand” said Godfrey Muwonge. “We have over a decade of experience working on immigration issues such as Asylum, Citizenship, Green Cards, Deportation/Removal Defense (Immigration Court), Appeals, U visas, and the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). This experience can help people understand how visa and immigration matters are changing.”

One of the important aspects generally not reported in the media is how immigration laws and regulations are applied. Only practitioners like Godfrey Muwonge have insight into these matters. 

For example, recently the immigration service USCIS seems to have begun to scrutinize Green Card cases much more. Many Green Card applicants for whom a family-based petition (“I-130 Petition”) has been filed, received identical “Requests for Evidence” (RFEs) about the financial sponsor (in most cases the spouse). Even if in the original I-130 filing the spouse’s tax returns show sufficient income to support the immigrant, USCIS in many cases sends an RFE asking for more evidence of income and assets.

Another example are Green Card cases where the immigrant was previously in F-1 student status. Also in those cases, USCIS now often sends RFEs, asking for proof that the immigrant maintained “student status” for the entire time that he or she was in student status. “Student status” means that the student attended at least 12 credit hours per term.

Finally, another issue that has arisen is the validity of medical exams for immigration purposes. In the past, a complete Green Card filing required that a medical exam (I-693), issued by a clinic registered with USCIS, be included. However, these medical exams are valid for only one year. Since delays have increased, many Green Card cases are pending for far longer than one year. Thus, the medical exam results expire, USCIS issues an RFE for a new medical exam, and the immigrant must undergo the medical exam once again (and pay for that). 

Thus, many immigration practitioners now file Green Card cases without such medical and rather wait for an RFE from USCIS so that the immigrant has to undergo the medical exam only once.

Godfrey Muwonge is planning to inform the public about such developments that they may not read about in the newspaper or see on television.

Godfrey Muwonge is the principal of the law firm, offering a complete range of immigration services. The firm has a solid decade of experiences helping clients of foreign nationality with temporary work permits for the U.S., green card petitions, criminal waivers and representation in removal proceedings cases to name just a few of the services they provide. While the majority of the clients the firm assists live within the state of Wisconsin, Mr. Muwonge represents individuals all over the United States and several foreign countries.
