Working is Not the Same as Creating

Look around you, and try to get an understanding of how your environment is conducive to your growth. I believe whole heartedly on the effects that our environment has on us. Yes, in order to achieve great things, we need to be the greatness we expect to see in our lives; no matter where we are at. However, it can be quite a challenge to obtain that feeling of greatness in difficult…

"Stovetop Mess"~GREEN Inspirations~March 30, 2011

When you're browning meat or pan frying on your stovetop, you don't want a greasy mess on the burners that you're not using...Cover the unused burners with inverted aluminum pie pans/baking sheet...The pie pans/baking sheet are easier to clean than the entire stovetop.

How to Store Your Blog Information for Safekeeping - Part 2

Yesterday we discussed how you can use Google Docs as a way to store some important blog information. Today, I want to share with another way that I really like.

2. Dropbox.com - Dropbox is an extrememly powerful service that can be very helpful to your business. You can sign up for a free account on their website. This will allow you to have a certain amount of free space to use. If you ever run out of space, they have low-cost upgrade options that you can use as well. What is… Continue

Preparing for transition

I can leave the military in about 18 months after more than 23 years of service and am considering my options. No bridges are burned, and I really like my current position, but I've radically departed from my original career path (flying airplanes) and am now deeply engaged in combat-like operations in the Pentagon.

I now consider myself on a 448-days to the work I love quest, and am interested in opinions and options. As I said, I'm a pilot and love all things aviation, but am also…

Customer Service is Alive & Well

So last week I was on the phone with a particular Internet company.  I was tweeting out the play by play as I “patiently” waited for answers to my billing questions.
I actually blocked off an hour for this task and almost went over.....
Needless to say , I was steaming......but they eventually made it right (only after blowing an unnecessary “human gasket”).
The responses I received while I was blasting out tweets every couple of…

Tweets, Likes, and Comments: Get Some

Lately I've been trying to find a correlation between tweets, Facebook likes, and comments on my posts. I've spent a few hours studying google analytics and I even put together this comparison sheet on my latest posts.

The sheet is sorted from highest number of comments to lowest. With only two exceptions, Facebook Likes are right in line with number of comments. Interestingly, the tweets are all… Continue

"Sticky Rims?"~GREEN Inspirations~March 29, 2011

To prevent sticky rims on bottles/jars (like honey or syrup), simply place a piece of plastic food wrap on the rim before you screw the lid back on...Or wipe a light coating of vegetable/olive oil on the cleaned rim then screw the top back on...Makes the bottle/jar easier to open the next time.

How to Store Your Blog Information for Safekeeping - Part 1

If you are going to have a stable, legitimate online business, then you need to treat it as such. It is easy to get scattered and have your websites, content, and affiliate IDs scattered all over your local computer and online. In this series, we have already discussed the importance of organizing your online business in a spreadsheet. If you need a refresher, take a moment and re-read how to organize your online business. The advantages of designing a spreadsheet like this is that you have all… Continue

So You Operate Your Business According To "Christian Principles?"

So you operate your business according to "Christian Principles?" Do you really? Seriously? Well, maybe you do, and maybe you don't! Do you understand what that statement really means? Do you take yourself seriously? If so, you need to live it 24/7 -- seriously.

This post is not intended to be a discussion of any particular religious belief system. It could apply to any belief system, religious or otherwise. It is being written because there seems to be an increasing number of… Continue

A Blank Page

I’ve heard it said time and time again, “I’m just coming up blank”. It’s as though people are waiting for the answers of how they should be living, or what they are “supposed” to be going after, to appear right in front of them. The structured mindset that wants instructions before taking…

There sometimes is no way to truly accept something but by learning it the hard way. I have been there and know while I would have much preferred to have these brilliant facts of life simply slip into my being without experiencing the sometimes awkward and often painful acknowledgment of their truths, I am at least relieved to know I have learned these at last.



     It is far easier to hold a grudge but far more painful…

Artists Collaboration - combining our fanbases.

As I mentioned earlier, Ted Yoder has allowed me to use his music in my videos. I wonder if this could be an example for others to follow? Certainly many people enjoy music and also seeing paintings made. However it is not limited to painting, perhaps you do a craft that others would find fascinating to see being produced? To use Seth Godin's Prompting We have to Ship! Well, Ted and I present a work combining me painting, him making his amazing music. I think I got the best end of the deal!…

Outsource/Globalization Proof Business Ideas

After talking to hundreds of would be entrepreneurs (some by choice, some by necessity) I have found that not everyone is interested in jumping on the internet bandwagon. Some potential business owners keenly understand the value of a small, local service based business. 


After talking to several candidates and thinking this over for a few months, I have decided to corral the ideas I have for opportunities in our area (rural ohio). I am sure these opportunities about…

Some of the older countertops (like formica) cannot handle the heat from hot pots and pans...To solve this problem and to prevent damage to your counterops, simply use an inverted baking sheet (a cookie sheet with the sides) as a trivet...This will also work for your dining room table or wherever you have the food set up for a buffet.

How to Do Easy Article Research for Your Blog Posts - Part 2

Yesterday, I shared the first step in performing easy article research for your blog posts. Once you have gathered some great research articles you can go to the next step in the process.

Read carefully through the article. Look for tips or good points about acne treatment. Once you are done reading, open up a blank document a begin summarizing what you just read. Don't worry about everything being perfect just write the content in your own words. It is okay to refer back to the… Continue

How much free stuff is too much?

I have taken the decision, rightly or wrongly, to produce much more video as part of my marketing for my 'fearless' painting methods. Literally showing how entire paintings are produced, as I type this, the first of the new series is uploading to youtube. So all I have to show will be visible in this way! However I am hoping people will want more granular advice and detail. Another 'aside' on this project a member here,… Continue

Surviving Success?

Surviving Success


I heard Michael W. Smith say the other day that I survived success.  This made me think about surviving success in the future.  But, the more I thought about it the more I realized that it can be a hard thing to survive future success.  We always think that if I become successful and make a lot of money, I will have it made. But, they say that 80% of NFL players are broke after they have been out of football for 10…
