A tiny little detail of leadership humbled me today.

Where Hard Work Meets Preparation

Many people ask, "What can I do to get that one idea that will get things going?" or "What can I do to make it?" Those are great questions, but often the wrong questions. Recently my wife was featured on our local CBS affiliate WKRG 5 with the story of how she created the…

Why not me?

Each day presents new choices. My goal daily is to be open and ready to whatever God wants me to do with those choices. Often I think we don't allow ourselves to dream big in fear of failure. But, why not me? Why can't I write the best childrens book in the industry and changes the way that kids think about their future? Why can't I be a revolutionary teacher that motivates her students to make a difference in the world and fearlessly chase their own dreams? I can! I can do all things…

Ebb and Flow

On June 1, I reached a major business milestone -- my one-year anniversary as a full-time entrepreneur. I wish I could say it has all gone smoothly, but just like the ebb and flow of the ocean's tide, so goes business (and life for that matter). Right now, I'm in the ebb and it's not a comfortable…

Begin being who you really are

This world can be so noisy.  Not only is there hustle, bustle and constant external commotion (traffic, TV, radio, podcasts, construction, other people and social connections), but there is a significant amount of internal noise as well.  I know we have all experienced times where we head to bed exhausted, only to lie awake for hours mentally reviewing a to-do list, or rehashing an event of the day we wish we could change.  Every day we struggle with an exhaustive list of emotions – hope,…

Why the Google+ would you choose Google+?

Chris LoCurto recently shared his confusion about Google+ on the Entreleadership podcast.  Honestly, I get this a lot.  People almost always give me perplexed looks whenever I mention that I enjoy Google+ over other sites.  I’m extremely active on Twitter (@TheDavidRoman) but most of my family and…

You Need To Take A Stand


"One man with courage makes a majority."— Andrew Jackson

There are far too many people not willing to do anything. Not willing to take a stand against what is wrong. Not willing to take a stand for what is right. Not willing to take a stand for someone who is down. Not willing to take a stand and…

Who's Your Firefighter?

Sometimes I take for granted the benefits of living in a society where everyone has the potential to specialize their skills. For instance, I'm able to spend my time crunching numbers for people all day long because someone else spends their time crushing wheat to make my bread, growing and harvesting cotton to make my clothes, and manufacturing the supplies that other…

The Power of Unintended Consequences

by Pete Ferguson

In the world of corporate security, we often look at a new policy, procedure, or physical control (adding a door for example) and try to understand what the unintended consequences might be for making a change.

It is easy to think of all of the benefits of doing something new, different, better, etc. But in doing so, we may only see the…

022 Pause for a more powerful season

Nature has seasons and so do we.

Every woman goes through menopause. The mainstream culture views this season as “Loss of youth, attraction, and maybe even sanity!” Most people would agree menopause is not an illness, but when we google this  word, we get results like “symptoms, treatments…”…
