I share this story in a class I teach and thought it was relevant to share to all. It made me realize when someone tells me something I may not want to hear, the best way to know it might be for my own good is when the hairs start to stand up on the back of my neck. Read on...
Hurt feelings between people can be very upsetting. How should you respond when someone comes to you complaining about being put down, or insulted by…Continue
There’s a major problem with the social mission of most every company in America: they don’t sell their social impact. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wondered what charitable causes a large company donates to only to find that I have to dig through about 20 web pages to figure it out. And even then, they always leave many questions unanswered: how do you help this charity? Why do you help it? How are your employees engaged with it? How does this actually fit with your…Continue

I have experienced job madness in my life. Early on, there was just so many shoulds that I felt pushed toward a career in teaching. When I realized I would be miserable doing that, I changed gears and began pursuing my creative dreams instead. I had a lot of opposition from family, friends and church leaders. I learned who my true friends were and at the same time how to be a true friend.
I tried working minimum wage jobs to try and make it for a while on my own, but none of…Continue

In 1944, from Portz, Romania, a 10-yr-old Eva Mozes and her twin sister Miriam were ripped apart from the rest of their…Continue
Be The Change Pursuing corporate sponsorships can be a little nerve-wracking. Many entrepreneurs and nonprofits don’t know where to start, if they know funding is available to them at all. Maybe you’ve done a little research. You know you need to submit a proposal but haven’t done it yet because you’re worried that it will be overlooked or lost in the shuffle. These are valid concerns. The very ones I want to help you address. Corporations are actively seeking nonprofits and entrepreneurs to…Continue

In science and human physiology, there are some things that seem to do both great good and also cause pretty cruddy reactions within our bodies at the same time. Some examples would be antibiotics, histamine, and alcohol--the last being enjoyed until the negative effects eventually and inevitably arrive. Histamine is much the same way and is most likely the root for…Continue

One day, the Lord approached me. “I’d like you to play a role in my story,” He said.
“Wow, me? What can I do?” I said.
“I’ve picked you to glorify Me. I’ll guide your every step. Here,” He held out my worn leather Bible. “This contains everything you need to know to shine in your part.”
I opened it to John 15:8 (NASB) and read, “My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit.” That’s just what the Lord said He wanted. I’d better get busy.…Continue

There are lots of things we can do to be healthy – eat right, exercise, get plenty of rest, manage stress, drink water and the list goes on! And who likes to be considered “average” in any area of life?
But I find what makes the biggest difference in those who follow through consistently and those who…Continue
One of my recent blogposts discussed who I am as a person, and some of my reasons for starting socialchangenation.com - if you didn't see it, should be just about ten posts down or so... at any rate, I'm wanting to detail something of an 'about me' page for my website. Overall though, this has been an incredible activity of self-discovery. I wanted to share this with 48days both so you could know me better, and so I could get to know myself better...
5.) I’m not afraid…Continue

Inflation: Artificial expansion of the money supply.
Let's start with supply and demand. The supply of loanable funds and the demand for loanable funds is part of the natural market mechanism that determines the market rate of interest. When allowed to operate this disequilibrium-tending-towards-equilibrium coordinates goods and services in the present and goods and services in the…

I get a lot of questions from writers who are interested in self-publishing their book. I've been self-publishing books since 2010 and I still remember that first year when I felt so lost and unsure of how to start and what path to follow. Here are the top five…
There have been great head to head battles in life we've all heard of--Magic vs Larry Bird, Ali vs Frazier, you vs your Mother In Law (c'mon, admit it). I never expected to be drawn into this level of epic contest when I attempted to clean up my family's diet but I was! I know there are and will be very positive benefits in having very strong willed children but…Continue
