Are you David or a square block of stone?

Dreams

In this episode I talk about the futility of looking for investors before you have some level of success.  If you have an invention – sell 1000 and then you’ll have a basis for getting investors. If you are a software developer, develop something that 1500 people sign up for with a monthly fee. If you’re an author, write a book and sell 2000 copies – then publishers will talk to you about your next one. If you’re an artist and you’re looking for investors, show them pictures of the last 20 pieces you sold. Finding money is not your challenge – producing something … Read More

Love Your Neighbor as Yourself

neighbor

There are some that believe to give means having nothing left for yourself. The error in this thinking is that no one can make any real impact if they are giving from an empty cup.

Questions: How can I best help my neighbor? I only make $15 an hour.  How could I give to others or spend on myself? Is it selfish to spend money … Read More

I’ve drifted from my original niche of helping people discover their WHY and toward the sameness of lots of other voices out there.

I know:  People who love their work are more productive and more creative. They are more in touch with their God inspired calling. They are happier and have happier families. They … Read More
