Can Downloading an App Really Bring You Freedom?

Time freedom means having the time to move deliberately through the world. It means not stressing out and running around like crazy. Having freedom of time lets you slow down and relax, and lets you appreciate life, your environment, people around you and the world in a much deeper way.

What is Time Freedom, Like, Really?

Time freedom is the freedom to decide what you want to do with your time. You know, those 24 hours in a day. Imagine they all belong to you, every day. And no one, especially not your boss, tells you how much time to devote to something. You’re the only one deciding.

From Pastor to Entrepreneur

entrepreneur-00001

Every time I get a chance to talk to occupational ministers, I try to delicately pry open the idea of entrepreneurialism.

In the Old Testament, there was a dividing line between the classes. The farmers got land as an inheritance in the promised land. The priests got no land, but “the Lord himself.” They couldn’t get each other’s take. Continue reading “From Pastor to Entrepreneur”

Need A Job? Read This First!

find-job-logoBusiness leaders often cite 2,000 hours as the average worker’s annual time commitment to the job. It’s roughly calculated based on a 40-hour average work week. For many entrepreneurs and leaders, though, 2,000 hours is just a dream, with 2,500 hours or more being the unfortunate reality.

If we accept 2,500 hours as a general rule of thumb, that’s likely more hours per year on the job than you devote to any other single activity — more time at work than with your loved ones or your favorite hobby or recreation, perhaps even more time than you sleep. If this is the case, shouldn’t work be about so much more than just a paycheck? Continue reading “Need A Job? Read This First!”

Build The Career You’ve Always Hoped For Using LinkedIn

linkedin_3f937db_thumbLinkedIn is an insanely useful tool for every working person, not to mention every job-seeker and student. The only unfortunate thing about LinkedIn as a job search tool is that most of what’s powerful about LinkedIn as a job-search tool is not obvious to the casual LinkedIn user.

If the only thing you’re doing on LinkedIn is updating your profile every now and then and waiting for the headhunters and recruiting managers to reach out, you’re missing the boat.

LinkedIn is a massive database, and within its gazillions of records are critical elements in your job-search plan and strategy. Continue reading “Build The Career You’ve Always Hoped For Using LinkedIn”

6 Ways To Create A Positive Online Footprint

 digital-footprint-e1401195518148The CEO of Google has suggested that once you leave college, you may want to change your
name to distance yourself from all the dumb things you did as a younger person and can’t erase from the Internet.
If you haven’t searched Google for your own name, you really should.  Ask yourself, “If a prospective employer, graduate school, business partner, or life insurance underwriter saw these results would it help or hurt my chances?”

Forward To Success

What action steps must you take to be successful?

Many of God’s promises are conditional, requiring some initial action on our part. Once we begin to obey, He will begin to bless us. Great things were promised to Abraham, but not one of them could have been obtained had he waited in Chaldea. He had to leave his home, friends, and country, travel unfamiliar paths, and press on in unwavering obedience in order to receive the promises. The ten lepers Jesus healed were told to show themselves to the priest, and “as they went, they were cleansed.” If they had waited to see the cleansing come to their bodies before leaving, they would never have seen it. God was waiting to heal them, and the moment their faith began to work, the blessing came.

When the Israelites were entrapped by Pharaoh’s pursuing army at the Red Sea, they were commanded to “go forward.” No longer was it their duty to wait, but to rise up from bended knees and “go forward” with heroic faith. Years later the Israelites were commanded to show their faith again by beginning their march over the Jordan while the river was at its highest point. They held the key to unlock the gate into the Land of Promise in their own hands, and the gate would not begin to turn on its hinges until they had approached and unlocked it. The key was faith.

We are destined to fight certain battles, and we think we can never be victorious and conquer our enemies. Yet as we enter the conflict, One comes who fights by our side. Through Him we are “more than conquerors.” If we had waited in fear and trembling for our helper to come before we would enter the battle, we would have waited in vain. God is waiting to pour out His richest blessings on you. “Go forward” with bold confidence and take what is yours. “I have begun to deliver … Now begin to conquer and possess.”
—J. R. Miller (1840–1912)

Faith that goes forward triumphs.—Author unknown

Leave not the business of today to be done tomorrow; for who knows what may be your condition tomorrow? The rose-garden, which today is full of flowers, when tomorrow you would pluck a rose, may not afford you one.—Firdausī (940–1020)
