"Thanks for the comment, Marcy. An "ownership" mentality is a big deal, isn't it? Not renting. Not an entitlement mindset. Ownership and possession. Blessings!"

Writing is a muscle

There’s no avoiding it. You have to grind it out. The more you push, the stronger you become as a writer. Here’s what Colin Nissan says ...Writing is a muscle. Smaller than a hamstring and slightly bigger than a bicep, and it needs to be exercised to get stronger. Think of your words as reps, your paragraphs as sets, your pages as daily workouts (The Ultimate Guide to Writing Better Than You Normally Do).…See More

"Brian, I love what you said about ownership and trust. We do need to get stronger - building ourselves up and helping others. And trusting that God has put something worthwhile in us that is meant to be shared with others. Great stuff!"

You’ve likely seen Footprints in the Sand. The poem is about a dream ... someone is walking with God on a beach.This is a little different take on the poem! Yes, there are those times we are carried. And there are those times we may be dragged!All of it is grace.God wants us to live our best life—he has designs on us.…See More

There's a New Level on the Other Side of a Quality Decision

Posted on November 18, 2014 at 8:00am 0 Comments

A quality decision is advantageous. It can release a new level of living and working for us.

I think there's a dynamic principle in Acts 6 which can motivate us. At this phase in the early church, the non-native Jewish widows (Hellenistic) were being overlooked in the daily provision of food.

The leadership made a practical, administrative decision. The congregation was to select 7 men to bring a solution. The 12 disciples then prayed over these men and released them in their new assignment.

And notice what happened! ... "And the word of God kept on spreading; and the number of the disciples continued to increase greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests were becoming obedient to the faith" (verse 7).

Quest: Live All of Life Like an Entrepreneur

Posted on November 11, 2014 at 8:42am 2 Comments

Entrepreneur comes from the French. It literally means one who undertakes (a task or enterprise).

An entrepreneur is one who steps out and steps forward with energy and strategy. She desires to seize what she envisions as an opportunity... risking failure to accomplish something worthwhile.

It's a mind-set. And deeper, it's a heart-set.

I want to believe we can release entrepreneurial energy in our personal lives as well as business.

Do you think we can? How?

You’ve likely seen Footprints in the Sand. The poem is about a dream ... someone is walking with God on a beach.

This is a little different take on the poem! Yes, there are those times we are carried. And there are those times we may be dragged!

All of it is grace.

God wants us to live our best life—he has designs on us. He desires that we think expansively.

Yes, grace is unmerited favor. But it’s more. Grace is also empowerment to live in alignment with his design for us.

Have you thought of grace as an empowerment to live in harmony with our design, and not just cover for our sins? Have you been…

Imagine What Jesus-Styled Leadership Could Do in Business and Politics

Posted on October 28, 2014 at 8:33am 0 Comments

  • Imagine business leaders who create a culture of serving others. Offering solutions and adding value to make others successful—customers and clients as well as those who are employed in the enterprise. What if it wasn't about power and the raw pursuit of money?
  • Imagine if political leaders and government workers were there to serve the interests of the citizens and the country … and not themselves.
  • Imagine educational leaders and teachers who are authentically present for students and not for special interests or even for themselves.
  • Imagine husbands and fathers who move in a true Christ-like headship, laying down their lives for the highest good of their…

Brian,

Welcome to the Online Selling and ecommerce Group here at the 48 Days community.  I just looked at your site.  Love the niche and the site.  Both are great examples of the new online selling. It's not a picture and a price.  Instead it's about answering someone's problem, building trust and offering something of so much value that people want to purchase it from you.  Old fashion selling is dead, now it's about helping your customer purchase.  Excited to have you as part of our growing group.

Hey, Brian, thanks for posting on 48days.net. 
The forums are specifically a place to ask questions and get advice from folks. I'm assuming your post is looking for guidance somewhere, but since you're not asking for anything and just leaving a link to your website, we consider it spam.
To avoid being deleted in the future, please remember the forums are a place to ask honest questions and get guidance from your peers. If everyone was doing that, the forums would be an awfully boring place, filled with links to member's websites.

I'd love to see a blog post here from you, perhaps expanding on something already on your website.

Thanks,
Justin Lukasavige

I happen to lead a couple of groups here for folks interested in writing or speaking. Not sure if you have interest in those areas, but if so, I’d be honored to offer what I can and include you in our discussions. In fact, I'd love to have you jump into the discussion. The more voices, the more we all learn.

Here are the links to these two groups:

Wishing you REAL Success...
