Tough times, Thank god you’re a leader

Uncategorized Jun 05, 2020
 

Have you ever had a coach, teacher, team captain, or maybe just a friend that always seemed to know what to do whenever things got tough? The person that everyone looks to for reassurance when the kitchen gets hot? The person that makes everyone else around them feel like they are capable of much more than they previously realized? Someone who can consistently raise the bar in order to effectively change the performance and results of their team?

Whether you answered yes or no to any of these questions you are still capable of great leadership. Moses was one of the greatest leaders this world has ever known, and just like you he questioned himself prior to the commencement of his journey. Trying to justify all the reasons why he was not qualified for the task being asked of him.

We have all heard the saying that God gives his toughest battles to his strongest warriors, but a warrior is only as strong as the person fighting next to them. You may ask yourself, how do I become a...

Need Motivation grab hold of Hope

Uncategorized Jun 04, 2020
 

Are you a person that goes through peaks and valleys of motivation? One minute you're ready to tackle the world’s problems, the next you're running from problems of your own? Feeling as if the bad days are never ending while the good ones seem to run further into the distance. What if I told you that it didn’t have to be like this ever again? 

Motivation is simply the reason one may have for behaving a specific way. But what if our motivation became a powerful intangible object that no one would ever be able to steal from us again. Once you understand what hope is nothing and no one can ever take it from you. When someone steals your hope they are simply defining your expectations, placing limits on what you are allowed to expect from yourself and from life. One thing I know for sure is that troubled times can’t last forever, and when you want something bad enough and have the right motivations for pursuing it, the world has no choice but to yield to your...

Adversity is prosperity with the right attitude

Uncategorized Jun 03, 2020
 

 

Through adversity a choice is born, and it is through these choices that an eternal story of destiny is written.

The first super market this country had ever seen was opened by a man named Micheal Cullen. He saw a need for people to be able to buy items at a discounted rate but on a much larger scale. In an economy that was actively in decline due to the effects of the great depression Cullen saw a light at the end of the tunnel. Had he not opened King Kullen’s Grocery we may have never seen modern supermarkets like Walmart and Sam’s club.

What about you? Are you looking for the light, or just trying to survive through some of your darkest days? Opportunities are only as good as the preparation that went into accomplishing them. And adversity possesses the ability to create wonderful opportunities for people with the right attitude, but the outcome is completely up to you. 

How many times do you run into adversity and get excited about the problem...

You’re a genius!

Uncategorized Jun 02, 2020
 

You’re a genius! Most people who read that first sentence are in the midst of an internal battle trying to convince themselves otherwise. Why is this? Why is it that the second we hear something we perceive to lack integrity we immediately attack this new information.

While most of us aren’t the epitome of a genius, we do have a very healthy source of information on a variety of different subjects. If I asked you to teach me how to shoot a basketball, most people would be able to give me basic instructions on how to do so.

While if I asked Michael Jordan to teach me how to shoot a basketball, he would theoretically be able to give me in depth instructions on how to do so. Thus increasing the value of those instructions, simply by the difference in who is giving them. Think of something that you are very confident in your ability to communicate.

Where does this confidence come from? Most will say experience, some instruction, and few will say that it is an innate...

Ice cream parlors

Ice cream parlors

 

Ice cream parlors, shoe stores, restaurants, and even beauty supply stores. All businesses that have taken a hit due to the recent Covid19 situation. All of these businesses were not prepared for the hit that would come at the hands of this novel virus. Everyone of these businesses I'm sure went into business with the thought that a pandemic would be the last of their worries. Now that same pandemic is at the forefront of every waking moment they have. Trying to figure out how they are going to recomp the finances that have been lost due to the current global situation. 

The real question to ask is not how to get that money back, but how do you make sure that you never lose money to a pandemic again? While most businesses have struggled, some have found ways to flourish amid all the chaos. Catering to the needs of our now virus affected society, by making masks and other protective gear that is sorely needed amongst health care professionals right now....

How to develop a Healthy Relationships

Uncategorized May 14, 2020
 

Imagine your very first relationship. What was it like? Did you get butterflies when you saw them? Did you talk until all hours of the night? And when it ended, what did you take away from the experience? Most will say that while it hurt, the relationship taught them a lot. Showed them the things that they wanted and didn’t want out of future relationships, whether they were with a significant other or elsewhere. 

Most of us have ideas of what a relationship should look like. Those models were made for us to see far before we even started school. And for most those ideals took root and began to blossom into what we now believe a relationship should entail.

There are several types of relationships that we all will encounter as we go through life. Parent and child relationships, friendships, marriage, and even business relationships. And just like the rest of the world you have come up with an idea of what each and every one of those relationships should look like....

The twelve men that changed the world

Uncategorized May 13, 2020
 

 The  original number of brave men who decided to embark on a journey that would change the course of their lives forever. Following a man that most perceived to be insane until he performed the act of turning water into wine. These men followed Jesus far and wide. Traveled with him from city to city watching the miraculous power of God move through him daily. Watching in awe with the rest of the crowd as he did things like make the blind see, make the deaf hear, and even raise people from the dead. Then they were equipped with the same power and told to go out and spread the news of the lord God. Power to heal the sick, power to cast out demons, and even the power to raise the dead. This is the same power that lives on the inside of every child of God roaming the face of the earth.

Today discipleship looks a little different. While the main thing is still serving God, we have been blessed with the ability to organize diciples from all over the world with a simple click...

Dreaming of making money, from home?

Uncategorized May 11, 2020
 

Have you ever dreamed of what it would be like to wake up, drink your coffee, and make money all at the same time?

The majority of us spend most of our time and a lot of our money in front of a screen, with no way of instantly recouping those finances. If there is anything that the recent world events have taught us all it is that we must be able to adapt with the times. While the world as we know it may never look the same that doesn’t mean that you and your loved ones should be left to struggle. Learning how to pivot is vital. 

Online business has become a pivotal piece of the world economy with a total of 602 billion dollars worth of commerce being exchanged online in the U.S. just last year. It’s certainly fair to say that the online aspect of our economy is growing at a rate that exceeds the expectations of most economists. But what does this mean for you?

With this one simple step I use can provide you with all the tools necessary to make this dream a...

Looking for help to set up my website

 

There are so many directions to go, when considering setting up a website, and developing an online platform.

Here are a couple of options to consider:

  • The Free Route  

  • Ask a friend to help you

  • Do a GOOGLE search

  • Search Youtube

  • Hire a Web developer

The list goes on. After a person starts down one path and they find themselves even more confused where to start, they do like most people...they never start. 

The key to online presence is really simple. START! Start somewhere. Do all you can to keep from getting stuck in the proverbial loop  of "paralysis by analysis." 

Let me ask you a question, when was the last time you sat in the garage in your car and ask one thousand question about your car to make sure you understood everything about it, before starting the engine? I think you get the pictures.

Getting your business online is no different. Until you put the key in the ignition and turn the darn thing on you are "stuck like chuck. "
