Real Passion = Real Profit

  • Is it irresponsible to walk away from a sterile, steady paycheck, to do something you love?  
  • Does ministry destine one to poverty and struggle?

Here’s what this family did

 Dreading another Monday, he stayed fastened to his bed; his emotions and reasoning wrapped around the obvious “responsibilities” and “duties” that were woven into the fabric of being a Christian, a husband, and a…

Don’t Be Like The Jelly Fish

I witnessed an incredible wedding this past weekend at Jekyll Island. As you may have remembered from my previous writings, my brother Russell was getting married to his now wife Alice. There is so much to talk about, but I’ll spare you all the details for now. However, I will say that this was an amazing memory they will…

Roadblocks - What is Keeping You From Your Destination?



I hate roadblocks. Anything that is trying to prevent me from getting to my destination is not only frustrating, but can also make me consider if getting to that destination is even worth it.

There are always things in life that will make it harder for you to arrive at your…

What does “good enough” mean to you?

Probably one of the biggest challenges you will face in just about anything you do is, 'Is it good enough?".

I fight this battle with every single episode of the Blue Collar Business Podcast. I do the show completely unscripted with the exception of a few notes (I can't stand the sound of someone reading).… Continue

Keep straight

I had two little boys in the back seat of my car one day. I jokingly asked them which way to go. One of them yelled out and laughed, "Keep Straight"! Who needs a GPS when you have children to steer you in the right direction.


I was in traffic the other day and it was half-inching along. At one point a driver decided to turn his car around. He was a car or two behind me. I saw him turning around when I glanced in my rear-view mirror. When I looked in front of me, to my…

Struggling with direction

What work do I love? I love problem solving. I love assessing current conditions and developing effective systems, programs, and methods to capitalize on good conditions and remedy lesser conditions to help businesses and communities achieve their goals.


What work do I do? Just that. I am constantly assessing current conditions and developing new systems, guest service programs/offers, and daily methods to further improve my client's business and set them up to emerge on top…

Eventual Millionare podcast

I re-listened to a podcast this morning with Jaime Tardy.  The podcast was the episode with Brig Hart, owner of R3Global.  Brig has a lot to say that is helpful for success in general.  One thing I liked was that he found network marketing the "vehicle" he used to raise him to the high heights of success he and his wife are enjoying.  There are many things we can do now to be successful and we can be that person we want to be now.  Then we can seek and wait for that "vehicle" that will take us… Continue

Wounds or Scars...

May 1...exactly 1 month since our special needs son Matthew had his heart surgery to repair his leaking mitral valve. Interestingly, it has only been in the last week or maybe a little more that Matthew has allowed us to raise his shirt and look at his chest...He even posed for some pictures for me today. The wound, or incision has almost completely healed now...even though his chest may not be completely fused at this time.


Of course, I am always looking for topics and lessons…

"Waxed Lawn Furniture?"~GREEN Inspirations~May 16, 2011

To keep your aluminum lawn furniture in good shape and to prevent rust, use your car's paste wax at the beginning of the "lawn furniture" season...A great way to use up that little bit of wax left in the container!

You'll Never Find Time to Write

Oprah has her list of things she knows “for sure.”  One thing I know “for sure” is that the idea of finding time to write is a myth.  It’s unlikely that a free hour will ever tap you on the shoulder. And if an hour does magically appear and by some amazing coincidence you have nothing on your to-do list at that moment, your kids, spouse, boss or the good, ol’ television have something lined up for you to do.

Most writers have multiple projects going at once.

"Born to be Free" - Free Agent Underground with Kevin Miller

It was early 2007 when I first visited the Sanctuary. Little did I know of the impact that Dan, Joanne, Ashley and Kevin would have on my approach to business and life.


Fun show with Free Agent Academy founder Kevin Miller.

Tired of the old-- Committed to the new

I have a sign on the wall in my office which reads, "You can't just be tired of the old. You have to be committed to the new." I heard Dr. Thema Bryant-Davis say that phrase. She's really smart and creative, and she's been a guest psychologist on the "Dr. Phil" show.

It's been a month or so since I came back from WTTB, and I 'm tired of old, but not TOTALLY committed to the new--just yet, at least when it comes to one thing -- my busy schedule. I'm working on it.

"Potted Peanuts?"~GREEN Inspirations~May 15, 2011

Whether you're planting in pots for indoor or outdoor use, we all know that you should place "something" in the bottom of the pot to prevent the potting soil from draining out when watering...Here's where those styrofoam packing peanuts come in handy...Simply place styrofoam peanuts in the bottom of the pot, then place the potting mix with your desired plant (or seeds) on top of the… Continue

Wood and Water

This is an idea I have for a Non-profit organization. In light of recent disasters in the US, I would like to start something called Wood and Water.  The wood stands for the rebuilding of peoples homes.  The water is for clean water to quench the thirst of the people who do not have homes and the water is polluted or not running in the areas affected.  I believe as  citizens of the world we are called to help our brothers and sisters.


Does this sound like a good idea?  Please…

The Power of Forgiveness to Heal and the Power of Love to Carry Through

If you're new here, the last five posts have been addressing each line of our Family Creed.   Only two more to go, and each one is so powerful to me!  For today, the creed is "We Believe...in the power of forgiveness to heal, and the power of love to carry through."

This is a perfect one to address considering the podcast we just did last… Continue

I never wanted to run away and join the circus. I'm really a homebody at the core. I never wanted to travel the world and live in a bazillion countries like one of my friends has really done. I think she's visited like --ah, 200 some cities. That's a LOT of traveling. However, I never wanted to be just average either----I'm coming out of my norm...because I've been thinking. I see me in a crazy, new, different way. Let me give you an example.


In my church arena we…

Knowing when enough is enough

If you are passionate about your product or company then you may have been called obsessive or fanatical.  I am guilty of both.  Those around me know too well what I am about.  Often I have chalked it up as going all out for my passion, but others would say I lack the wisdom to know…

The Last Entry, But Not the End

The Last Entry, But Not the End

January 18 2010

Mark: It was time to go back to work and I was welcomed right back on the Canadian fleet.  I called Susan when I got back in the U.S.  She asked, “Did it feel good to be back?”  “Good enough that I still can do my job, didn’t lose my touch, at least so far.”  I spent the days listening to Christian talk radio, the praise & worship CDs that I missed the last four months with “Days of Elijah” on it, and audio…
