Your Shopping Cart, Your Personality

When it comes time to hire someone, a lot of employers will take an interviewee out to lunch or dinner.  If you didn’t know, this isn’t just to have a delicious burger that someone else is paying for.  It’s to see your table manners, to see how you treat the waiter or waitress, and to gauge your social and conversational skills.


Note to interviewees:  If at all possible, never order anything you have to eat with your hands nor anything with ‘extra sauce’.

It takes more than a business plan to be successful

We’re told that one of the first steps in thinking about any new business is to write a business plan. Out of this you’ll get to see how viable (or not) the business you want to build is. Books and books are written on how to write a great business plan. I’ve even got some on my shelf.

The Entrepreneur & Civilization.

“It doesn’t happen that way!” is what his friend kept telling him. Whether it was dressing for a special occasion or helping a neighbor with a boundary issue or finding answers to some financial questions, none of these just happen on their own or are magically resolved externally. This is the difference between being active and being latent, and in a way, this is the difference between being ‘awake’ or being ‘asleep’.

What is civilization, where does it come from, and who is…

8 Irrefutable Laws of Running an Awesome Business

In my original ideal world of freelancing I’d hang out my shingle and stellar clients would pour in. I’d have work to do all the time with no dry periods. All the clients would be willing to pay premium rates, beginning the day I started building sites.

Is God Hiding From You?

My favorite games of “hide and seek” took place at night with my older cousins at a friend’s log cabin on the marsh. The smell of salt air, twinkling lightening bugs, and the moon shining over the water created a magical setting for our childhood fun. The goal was to hide so well the seeker would give up looking for you.

When Hebrews says God “rewards those who earnestly seek him” (11:6) we may picture a game of “hide and seek.” But God is not hiding from…

Pioneering and new beginnings.

It's been a year this month since I took a major plunge and left all things familiar. I resigned from being a pastor in a church for fourteen years. I resigned from a denomination I'd been a member of since I was eight years old. I moved to a state with my wife and son where we had no friends and family.

I'd like to say that I was starting over but I seem to remember Dan saying that we don't start over. So I'll say that I'm taking my skills, gifts and interest to pioneer a new way of… Continue

Memory Stones

A biblical concept we have employed in our family is the concept of building memory stones. In the Old Testament we see many examples where the Israelites are told to stack stones to provide a marker of the point of God’s deliverance. The stones are used to remind the current…

True Religion in Four Letters

When people ask me if I’m religious, I’m quick to say “no, but I love Jesus.” To be called religious has a bad connotation today. When I asked my small group to describe pure religion, words like formal, solemn, and rigid emerged. If that came to your mind then you may be surprised by the Bible’s description of pure religion.
