There are so many people competing for space and for your audience that it’s easy to feel like it’s not even worth it. But the truth is that the vast majority of those other voices online are imitators.

October 24, 2016

All small business owners need to make sure that their company is as current and prescient as it can be.

The Relationship Between God And Our Ambitions

October 24, 2016

We all want to achieve something in life.

Some people desire to launch their own businesses, some want to find that special someone they can marry and start a family with while others want to rid themselves of debt. When you really think about all the many desires we have as humans, the list could go on forever. The thing about these desires, or ambitions if you want to use another word, is that they don’t just come to life on their own. There is always some level of action that must be taken in order to see them come to pass.

The word ambition* means “a strong desire to do or to achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work.”

Personally I have many ambitions but making it to Heaven and being a mentally and financially thriving entrepreneur definitely are at the top of my list. I work hard everyday to reach these (and other) goals of mine. But yesterday after hearing a sermon at CityHeart Church, I realized that I’ve been doing it all wrong. There was once a time when I would get in my feelings about being corrected by the Word, but yesterday I felt like Pastor Kevin had screwed all of our metaphorical light bulbs on and given us the real key to success.

Countdown To Baby: Pregnancy Q&A Featuring Dad

October 19, 2016

In my first post of this series, I mentioned that I’d been wanting to share a little of my experience being pregnant with my blog readers and this video officially kicks that off.

Baby Lo’s dad and I sat down to answer some of the questions I’ve gotten and to verbally and publicly talk about our little bean.

As Dad mentioned in the video, I’ve become a lot more cautious of what I share and who I share it with so this is one of the very few pre-baby videos I’ll be filming. Hopefully you all enjoy it, we had lots of fun answering the questions and just enjoying this special moment.  Continue Reading
